    Even if they added an evolution with an older item, older Pokemon can't evolve with them outside of the new Generation. It doesn't make sense, but then again, like I just said, two Pokemon could learn attacks they needed to have to evolve in Generation 2 and they couldn't evolve then, why did they magically learn to evolve 2 generations later?

    Evolving by Level won't conflict with Espeon/Umbreon either as they are both time and happiness based evolutions. All you have to do is keep Eevee in the center until it reaches x level to evolve. With all the new ways to increase and decrease happiness it isn't that hard.
