Well I just hatched my new Eevee in Emerald and I was wondering what I should evolve it into?

Jolteon, you don't get many good electric-type pokemon in R/S besides Manectric.

Agreed not many good electric's in this game Im thinking real hard about Jolteon or Espeon
(I like Psychic pokemon)

Evolve it into either Espeon and Umbreon. Those two can only be gotten in RSE because of the internal clock system.

Better yet, why don't you breed more Eevees instead and have them all?

If you're not a Ninetales fan, then Flareon is the way to go. Pretty much all Fire Pokemon in R/S/E suck (besides Ninetales and Blaziken; I don't count Groudon, because there's no challenge in using legendaries), and there are so few of them anyways that it makes Flareon a pretty good choice.

I'm insulted by your lack of faith in Raichu. xD

Actually, I think Electrode is pretty good too, minus it's bad moveset. It's speed is almost unmatched.

Since you can only choose from Flareon, Vaporeon and Jolteon depends on nature really but most likely Jolteon is the way to go.

Let's see...Flareon's stats are sorta screwed up, it's attack is too high for a Fire Type without a lot of physical moves...
Jolteon's fast and strong, it's pretty good, though I've never used one...
Vaporeon's for stalling, if you're into that kind of thing...
Espeon's for *ahem* messive demage!!! It's strong. And sort of fast.
Umbreon's mainly defensive, although it's still really strong, sort of like Dusknoir.

Well, I'd say go with Umbreon, Jolteon or Espeon, your choice really.

Um...Groundon is a ground type, and I would pick Jolteon because he/she is fast and strong, so pick JOLTEON!!!

Sorry about the double quote thing I can't fix it.

It depends. :X What do you think would work best on your team?

Personally, Jolteon is my favorite (and I don't like Manetric), so I'd use Jolteon.

Groudon has a lot more in common with Fire Pokemon than with Ground Pokemon. His Drought ability makes up for the lack of STAB, and his moveset heavily consists of Fire-type moves.

When you consider how bad the pickings are for Fire Pokemon in R/S/E (unless you trade with FR and LG, obviously, but some such as myself don't have that luxery), it's probably better to throw Groudon into that group, since he basically is a Fire Pokemon, minus one technicality. I still never use him though, since I really don't believe in using legendaries, because there's no challenge in it (and it defeats the whole purpose of raising your Pokemon).

Which Eeveelution to evolve it into is totally dependent on the members of your team, the IVs, and the Nature of your Pokemon. Until you give us that information, we can't really give you a good answer. However, I can tell you that Flareon is seldomly used, and Umbreon isn't very useful at times. Espeon is outclassed by numerous other special sweepers like Alakazam and Gengar. That's the main reason why it isn't used anymore. Your main choices are between Vaporeon and Jolteon. Vaporeon is arguably the most useful out of all three of them. It's incredibly bulky and can pass a Wish to another Pokemon in case you messed up early on. Vaporeon is seen and used by a lot more trainers than Jolteon. Jolteon is okay. It makes a good speedy Baton Passer and a good lead Pokemon, but that's about it. It's small movepool severely limits its sweeping capabilities. Anyways, your best bet is most likely Vaporeon, but then again, we have yet to know the IVs and Nature of the Pokemon, so saying that you would need Vaporeon would be judging by a narrow sense of knowledge. It would be more helpful if you would provide the necessary elements of your Eevee that we need to know to determine which Eeveelution is the best. :3

But the truth is that Groudon is still not a ground type how ever you add things up.

You meant fire surely?

Post your team/party, so more help can be given to you.

Yeah, post your team, but at first glance, I'd suggest that you use Flareon, most of the other Fire types available, are not that capable for holding their own battle

First off, you can only use the Sun Stone/Moon Stone on Eevee in XD. It will not work in RSE. As for your team, Swampert is a great choice. Haunter will be too if you can evolve it into Gengar. The other Pokemon will cause problems if you are not careful. Basically it stems on whether you want a challenge in-game or not. With how your team is presently constituted, I would suggest you go with Jolteon.

The nature sure isn't that great though and if those are truly the IVs (to me they appear to be its stats for Lv5, I think) then I wouldn't even touch that Eevee. I would breed it for a Timid Nature and get as close to 31 IV in SAtk and Spd as possible.

Also don't worry about a lack of Fire-type. They are HIGHLY overrated and unnecessary.

I'd suggest you go with Jolteon. Also, try teaching it Thunderbolt. Thundershock won't do his 110 special attack base stat any justice!

Assuming you're just looking for a Pokemon for your in game team I would go with either Jolteon or Vaporeon. Fire type really isn't that useful in Emerald with the E4 having lots of Water and Ground moves, it's more useful in R/S. Since you're using Vaporeon Jolteon is probably the way to go.

Now that I think about it, you can't actually get Eevee in Emerald until after you get the National Dex... So where did you get this Eevee from? And have you already defeted the League..?

Swampert is definitely a good choice; I trained one up, while I was trying to get my Emerald to the point where I could use it for the Move Tutors. XD

Now that I think about it, you can't actually get Eevee in Emerald until after you get the National Dex... So where did you get this Eevee from? And have you already defeted the League..?

It's possible to trade with Colosseum to Emerald without having the National Dex; though I personally haven't traded National Dex Pokemon to my Emerald, (I did, however, trade my Seadra with a DragonScale to it, using Colosseum's Makuhita as the trade subject) while I didn't have the National Dex, before the Elite Four. It's quite possible that you can, and likely that they traded Espeon/Umbreon to their Emerald, so that they could breed it, and get another Eevee. However, I don't know if it is possible to get Female 'eons, in Colosseum, as I've never tried. (when it came to breeding, I had Ditto, since I'd finished the Elite Four before I started messing with trading, for real)

Looking at your team I think flareon.
I mean you need something to stamp out those Grass/Bug/Steel pokemon, and you can teach electric moves to Haunter or Chimecho I think.
But Jolteon would be a good choice too.

True, those both would be a great choice. I mean, you want a well balanced team, right? Well, you can't add Espeon/Umbreon cuz of absol and chimecho.
Vaporeon will only take up space, you already have a water type in your party (Swampert) I think you should either go with Jolteon or Flareon. Of course, if you don't want to, you don't have to.

You cannot trade non-Hoenn Pokemon to Emerald before you defeat the Weak 4. You traded Makuhita from Colosseum, which is a Hoenn Pokemon. Only RS are able to trade non-Hoenn Pokemon at the start of the game.

Fire-types are overrated. Too many HUGE weaknesses to be considered effective. It is the easiest type to work around, either having a non-Fire Poke with a Fire move, or covering with Ice/Flying/Rock, all moves that should be prevalent on a good competitive team. Flareon is the weakest of the evos.

Replacing Absol with Umbreon or Chimecho with Espeon would be a tremendous improvement, but as you said, it is up to him. Unless you want to restructure the entire team, Jolteon would be the best choice.

Good fire types are hard to come by on emerald, If you didn't start with Torchic I think a fire type is a good idea, You do come across of leaf/bug types and a few steel throughout the game. But of course that is just my opinion I'm not saying i'm completely right and as I said Jolteon would also be a good choice.

Flareon is not the ideal picture of a good fire type. Its Attack stat is way too high and its Special is pretty poor. I'd actually rather use an Alakazam with Fire Punch. Battle Frontier FTW!

shanecdavis
September 20th, 2008, 11:01 AM
I prefer Salamence with Fire Blast, but the point is made.

As for the game, Taillow is available very early on to deal with any Grass or Bug-type and most in-game Steel-types are of the Ground or Rock secondary type variety, allowing a Water or Grass move to remove them easily. While Fire-types just aren't necessary, everyone does have their favorites. I admit I always started with Charmander back in the RBY days because Charizard was the coolest. Unfortunately as we have seen too many times in Pokemon, cool or cute doesn't typically equal good.

first: shiny gold is a hack of fireRed where there is no internal clock, so Zel had to make up for that fact.

Second: to my knowledge there's no patch for the internal clock on an emerald ROM like there is for ruby and sapphire, so the uploader of the ROM had to go in and change evolutions of those pokemon in order to make them obtainable
