    Have any of you played Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness? You get Eevee as a starter there and are given 5 different stones to evolve it with.

    Anyway,
    Eevee should not be a starter. It's the most overrated Pokemon in existence (rivaled only by the likes of Charizard and Rayquaza), and for all the awesomeness it has, only three of its evolutions have any use whatsoever. The rest of them all...suck...

      yeah earlier in this thread I posted that eevee was a starter in Gale of darkness. I was awhile since I played it but it seemed to worked out well in that game. The fact that the stones were offered as well is a bonus because that was the thought I had if eevee was a starter.

        It would be good to have Eevee as a starter, but as the others mentionis, Starters can't be caught in the wild, but Eevee can be. Also, it is hard to evolve.

          It would be brilliant to have Evee as a starter there's only one problem.
          Starter pokemon are supposed to evolve twice while Evee only evolves once.

            I wouldn't consider Eevee to be a starter for any generation. I mean, it really can't do anything until it evolves with stones, not even by leveling up. Also, it would break the mold of a Fire, Water, and Grass type starter. Personally, I don't see a reason to break that mold.

            Yes, I used mold.

            I add Lucario and Riolu to that list on a personal basis.

            Personally, it would be interesting for Eevee to be a starter, but your rival would have to have Eevee as a starter too. Why?

            Well, as in any Pokemon game, your rival always has a Pokemon strong against yours. So if you were to have Eevee as a starter, they'd have to start with Eevee too, and they would evolve it into an Eeveelution that has an advantage over yours. The only problem with this, however, is if you choose to evolve Eevee into Umbreon or Jolteon, but I suppose your rival could find a way to make his Eeveelution strong against either, e.g. evolving it into Leafeon to counter Jolteon (electric moves don't do much against Grass types).

            But yeah. The Pokemon producers probably want to keep the grass/fire/water starters, but who knows? Maybe Eevee will be a starter one day :/

              I think they made a game where you can have it as a starter I think it was pokemon gold or silver somewhere around there.

                I think in the begining of daimond they should give you quiestions and based on your anwsers they give you the pokemon from the quiestions. Evee would be good in the begining. (sorry for my grammer)

                  I agree, eevee would make an amazing starter (Being my favorite pokemon and everything )

                  Problem i see with it is that stones are usually bought at a later town which is when your pokemon are like, level 30ish? so your eevee might take a while to get to the evo you want

                  Espeon and umb would be ok i guess, but happiness evos are kinda hard to get to if your at the start of the game

                  Glacion and leafeon are... kinda bad... but i guess they would be ok because all you need is to be in a place thats quite easy to get to and a rare candy

                    They should let you choose a stone in the start of the game when you choose a pokemon.

                      But then you have something overpowered right off the bat, and it'd be far too easy.

                        Yeah Play XD.

                        But i would like the theory, depending on which game i was doing it with. Like Gold I wouldnt do it. Same with R/B/Y.

                          I love Eevee and all, and I used to think it was a great idea to have it as a starter.
                          Then I did a little hack job on a copied Emerald ROM to get Eevee as a starter option...

                          I've got two words for you: Epic. Fail.

                          Having so many evolution methods at your disposal kind of ruins the fun of the game ("Strategy?! I'll just tell Espeon here to blow their bloody heads off!"), and makes it even worse when you don't have access to said methods so you're stuck with a wimpy little Eevee until then.

                          I'd much rather be able to get a one-off Eevee later on in the game, when more options are available to me (Bebe in Hearthome City much?). Keeps the furry little thing as rare and special as it should be without being overkill. And even then, I'd only want to be able to get an Eevee for a reason rather than 'lol heer i dun wunt it enymoar taek this furry little gen 1 thing lolol', like new evolutions or something partially related to the plot (like in GSC when that demonic Togepi egg gets forced on you).

                            Eevee would be a great starter... unless it actually WAS a starter. I mean, think about it. I reckon there's an Eeveeloution for everyone, but come on. Who can be bothered making an Eevee happy at night for an Umbreon? What I'd like to see is a Flying-type Eevee... *drools*. But yes! Eevee as a starter, once the novelty wore off, would blow.

                            I would love eevee as a starter! I would evolve it into an espeon as fast as possible.

And I'm pretty sure the game would do something so you don't get Espeon or Umbreon too early.

                            how can't you see the cuteness of eevee and it eeveelutions?!

                            anyway, though I agree eevee itself is kinda weak, they could do some way that you can get the stones earlier than normal. of course not too early, but not too late either.

But like you have charmander, squrtle, and bulbasaur, you replace them with stones. I think eevee would be a great starter that way. And wasn't eevee already a starter in gale of darkness if I'm not mistaken? and it worked out okay last time I played it. I evolved mine into an Umbreon I think. It was so long ago I can't remember
                            that's a pretty good idea, but what if you want to evolve it into a glaceon, leafeon, umbreon or espeon? maybe they could set the ice and leaf stone too, and if you want umbreon or espeon, I think you can just leave without chosing any of the stones.

                              I think, in a DS version, Eevee as a started might be neat. Just think, if they introduced the 5th generation without regular starter Pokemon and used Eevees, you could have rivals for each of the eeveelutions. OR EVEN MORE AWESOME (XD) you could use wifi features to have your actual friends as the rivals that appear in game.

                              On that note, it'd be awesome to design everything about your character (like hair color, clothing, eyes, battle stance, etc.)

                                It would be nice to get eevee in the beginning if you had the choice. However, personally, I wouldn't find myself using eevee in battles much. I would use eevee to catch other pokemon and then fight gym leaders and wait a while (train it on the side to get it ready to evolve before I have it doing any harder battles).

                                no problem, I always look at this:
                                there is always a way for everything, you just need to find out how. the only real question is, will game freak do that? will they grand us the possiblity of eevee as a starter?

                                still, I seriously hope that they will make eevee as a starter in one of the next games....

                                  Eevee is such a god awful, overrated Pokemon. I can honestly say that there is no time that I ever wanted to train an Eevee or evolve it. Most of the time I just let it sit where you can get one, unless i'm trying to fill my Pokedex. Eevee is a rather lousy choice as a starter, I mean come on all you can do is evolve it once and you usually have to get a stone or train at night or day and level it at specific places, so no, I don't need Eevee as a starter and he never will be anyways.
