    ... what would you evolve it into, if at all~? (Read: the Pokémon, not this critter. ;))

    I recently had the opportunity to answer this question for myself and the decision was fairly one sided: Umbreon! I'd always wanted a shiny Umbreon with those purdy blue rings and most of the other shiny Eeveelutions are strangely coloured or somewhat bland. Never been too interested in any of 'em beyond Umbreon. XD

    Best thread ever! ♥

    I hatched a Shiny Eevee earlier in the year when I was breeding for Espeon. That one I chose to evolve into Eapeon as originally planned and called it Vee, after the special one Red has in Pokémon Adventures. However, if I ever had the chance again then I'd probably leave Eevee just the way it is as I find the shiny sprite really cute. ^^

    That said, if it wasn't for the fact I have a Jolteon which I've traded up through my games since third gen (and would never dream of replacing him with a new Jolteon) I'd likely have been tempted to evolve my shiny Eevee into one of those.

    Depends on its nature/IVs/egg moves honestly.

    Actually that's a lie, Flareon. I don't have a reason why.
  4. Sylveon.

    Probably Umbreon. It's my favourite eeveelution anyway, and it looks pretty damn cool with the blue rings.

    >Insert joke about Flareon not having any moves here<
  5. Well, in White 2 I captured like, 3 shiny Eevees. Two are still shiny Eevees and one is an Espeon. So I guess Espeon? Although I do love Umbreon's color when it is shiny ♥. I also have a soft spot for Jolteon, so it would be one of those three, most likely Espeon because in White 2 my Espeon destroys everything >:D

    oh my gosh Katie
    I'm seriously dying of laughter as I read this topic XDDD

    Anyways, that being said I've never had the opportunity to even see a shiny Pokemon in my games, let alone a very pretty shiny Eevee. ;; But if I could, I'd very much just keep it as it was because I'm biased and stuff. And I'd name it Shiny. Yes.

    Besides that, though, I'll have to say that the next most likely thing would be for me to evolve it into a Glaceon. It's my favorite out of all the Eeveelutions, especially when it's shiny, and I really like ice types too. ^^;

  7. Asides kicking it around, Flareon! I'm so Flareon biased. Flareon all the things.

  8. Jolteon, for no other reason than it being my favorite Eeveelution out of the lot. And because I'm Electric-type biased.
  9. I would go with Umbreon. I really like the blue rings on it so I personally believe it is the coolest looking Shiny Eeveelution.
  10. I would, hands down, train the eevee into a high level shiny umbreon. I like the blue rings more than the yellow rings. But if it's only a regular eevee, i would evolve it into a espeon.

    I voted Flareon, because the shiny colours for Flareon are just so pretty and remind me of autumn leaves :)

    Umbreon would be my second option, or just leaving it as Eevee~

  12. I like Umbreon and Espeon, but Umbreon definitely wins it for me. I don't know why, the colors are really nearly the same, but the yellow eyes and blue rings are just beautiful~ So much so that I've made it a permanent member of one of my FC's teams~

    Am I the only person who thinks Vaporeon? It's purple!

  14. Umbreon, like everyone else. ;D Although I do like shiny Espeon since it's BRIGHT GREEN. GR33N.

    I would either keep it as is or evolve it into Vaporeon.
    Seeing as I always try to have one on my team anyway.
  16. I would dfinetly go with umbreon though if non shiny espeon that thing was awsome in my soulsilver playthrough or glaceon also awsome in my black 2 playthrough
  17. I'd evolve it into a Glaceon as soon as possible.
  18. Vaporeon because it's my favourite of the Eevee evolutions and because the shiny version is purple-ish pink in colour. :D
  19. Depends on gender:
    Male: Umbreon
    Female: Sylveon
    But if I got 2 Female Shiny Eevees:
    Umbreon and Sylveon.
  20. I'm more of the Vaporeon side because Purple is one of my favorite colors and he's a kickass Pokemon.

    Edit: Not a very good reason but I pretty much love how he's a tank.

  21. Depends on the gender, for me too:
    Male: Jolteon ( I just love the green color!<.>)
    Female: Vaporeon ( It's purple.. C'mon!)
    But I do like how the shiny Umbreon looks..

  22. I would evolve mine into an Umbreon.Its rings are blue! Like a blue moon and its eyes are a bright yellow like a cat would and its the perfect one for night battles for me at least. My second choice would be Leafeon for other reasons, it might not look diferent but I like it a lot too.
  23. \:D/ What is yours?
    Mine is Umbreon!
    Because THEM BLUE RINGS!
  24. I wouldn't evolve it at all. I would cherish it for years to come. Besides, IT'S SILVER!!!!
  25. Just like everyone here, I like the design of the shiny Umbreon the best. It doesn't look like a strange palette swap, it looks like a nice, well thought recolor.
  26. Depend on what gender it is.
    Male; Leafeon
    Female; Umbreon
  27. I've actually got a Shiny eevee and I can't decide what to evolve him into :(
  28. umbreon. it looks really cool is all
  29. AzureEdge

    I'd totally do all the work of that ice cavern dungeon to get a shiny Glaceon.
    That's only because I actually have a Shiny Umbreon.
  30. I voted Umbreon because I'm partial to Umbreon and those yellow eyes and blue rings ♥ However, I do love Glaceon and Vaporeon ♥:up:
  31. Flareon, it looks like a puffy eevee:blush:

  32. I have attempted to breed for a Shiny Eevee with the intention of evolving it into Umbreon. Lovin those orange cat eyes and bright blue rings, but Shiny Sylveon's also nice! Those devilish red eyes as it nulls your opponent's Dragon moves; truly the eyes of a 'mon without mercy. *brick'd*

    Leafeon and Glaceon also deserve a special mention. They might not be my favorite overall, but they are slightly better than their regular colors.

  33. Hmm, maybe a Vaporeon or an Umbreon.

    I agree that the eeveelution shiny pallettes are kinda strange, and these two ( oh, and Sylveon <.>) have the best ones, in my oppinion.

    But, because I allready have them ( I'm a shiny maniac :(), maybe keep it as it is.. Or an Espeon.. :?
  34. KEEP IT THE SAME!!!!!!!!! Now if it were a regular eevee who knows what I would evolve it into? I actually have like 3 and I got the whol set of eeveeloutions from a giveaway. My very first one is called Dove, and she has been an eevee since forever, my sencond one is called Orange and for the fun of it I turned it into a leafeon, and the last became an Espeon, which I gave to my friend so she can breed shiny eevees.
  35. I'd most likely keep mine the same, at least for one. But I do like shiny Sylveon's color swap, and shiny Umbreon has nice colors as well.
  36. Ya all of them are nice, but eevee is the best.
  37. I love Flareon, in shiny coloring I also love Umbreon's shiny!
    Was very tough call, end decided on Umbreon's shiny fur coat a bit more.
  38. Umbreon Shiny looks Awesome!
    I like blue Pokemon and loved umbreon as my fav eevelution anyway so...
    Win X2 :)
  39. I would evolve mine Into a shiny sylveon. I love the colour scheme.s
    Or maybe a umbreon.
    Or just keep it.

  40. I voted for Shiny Espion, but I'd be fine with any shiny eevee or eeveelution.
