well for one you must realize that you cant acutally get Umbreon or Espeon in Fire Red or Leaf Green. you have to take their eggs (after you're able to breed 'n stuff) over to ruby 'n saphire and have them evolve there. which in that case sucks because that means that you can never have a truely powerful umbreon or espeon on Fr/Lg because they'll be "traded" pokemon if you take them back

i'm talking about getting eevee eggs on FIREDRED and raising them on FIREDRED for use in battle tower

Umbreon is better IMO cause it has awesome defense and good tanking abilities.Espeon has sweeping abilities but a poor movepool.Go wit umbreon he or she is betta.Still IMO

I like Espeon better, myself. The Espyjump set makes for a fabulous tank/Passer. Throw on Bite/HP:Special and/or Morning Sun if you need it to hold its own. (I don't use Umbreon so much because of its not-so-nice movepool.)

Calm, 196HP/152SpDef/160Spd
Calm Mind
Baton Pass

Calm, 252SpAtk/160HP/46SpDef/46Spd roughly
Calm Mind
Morning Sun/Sub/Pass

Gonna move this to RMT, since it relates to you choosing a member of your team...

In my opinion, umbreon's better and cooler. You need to trade over your eevee to R/S/E then get its happiness maxed and it will evolve into umbreon during the day.
A good moveset is
Confuse Ray
Faint Attack
and make it hold leftovers.
It's the most annoying thing to fight.

Umbreon Is Better

Umbreon sucks in-game. So use Espeon if you're so pressed to use one. But really, get Vaporeon or Jolteon (they don't suck ingame). If you don't listen to anything else I say, don't listen to Hukuzo's set. That's the classic Turdbreon that every newbie uses and thinks it's "original".

faint attack isnt very good with 60 base power and with umbreons bad attack.I'd give him body slam for chance of paralysing and then bite for a chance of flinch, along with confuse ray and moonlight.

15th November 2005, 5:50 PM
actually you need to evolve
eevee in to
or trade it from colisseam or ruby or saphire or emerald

15th November 2005, 8:15 PM
umbreon is pointless in game as it's most effective moveset contains no direct attacks

(wish/mean look/baton pass/taunt FYI)

15th November 2005, 8:32 PM
umbreon is better, but I like jolteon more (.)_(.)
...........don´t ask me why.................;135; ^..^

We neet not. XD

Anyways, Espeon actually has a use InGame, and like 0mastar said, Umbreon doesn't. There's your answer. Espeon works like a wonder InGame.

EDIT: What the hell was I thinking when I said that earlier?

What's the point of Espyjump ingame? :confused:

17th November 2005, 4:47 PM
Jolteon is the best , It and dragonite have been my favorite ever since I first started playing pokemon games. If I had to chose though from Umbreon and Espy I would chose Espy cuz like whats Umbrie's best attack bite.lol. Even though Umbeon looks cooler Espy is better.

Espeon @ lefties
Calm Nature
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Morning Sun
- Dont know someother Special In - Game attack.

EspyJump is better but not for In - Game IMO.

But I say Jolteon is really the best. something like this

- HP[Grass] - It's a good atempt to destroy those grounds etc.
- Thunderbolt - For Stab
- Agility
- Baton Pass

Thats a good Jolty ^_^.

Eesspppppeeeoooooonnnnn!!!!!!!!she Is So Cute And Cool;196; ;196;

18th November 2005, 10:36 PM
I'll choose Espeon coz it has better sp:atk and speed,movepoll,strong attacks and its cuter!!!!

18th November 2005, 11:23 PM
Espion would be my chioce, very good with calm mind and psychic, but it really depends on your team. Do you need a tank or special sweeper?

18th November 2005, 11:28 PM
Umbreon's has a better def. and might last you longer.

umbreon is better because its hp defence and sp defence are good for battle

22nd November 2005, 2:40 AM
i would say get both 4 the dex and if you are going 2 use i would have to say use umbreon

23rd November 2005, 2:45 AM
depends, if you need a special sweeper go with espeon. if you need a tank/annoyer, go with umby.

23rd November 2005, 3:11 AM
umbreon sucks ingame


baton pass
calm mind

31st October 2006, 7:27 PM
espeon!!!!! ALL THE WAY!

31st October 2006, 8:51 PM
unbreon hardly sucks in-game. it is a great tank due to its huge defenses and (just off the top of my head if it can learn these moves and im not too good at movesets) this would prove effective on killing stuff it gets owned by steel types though

-mean look
-faint attack

the reason it has faint attack is as if it is your last pokemon you would want some kind of attacking move wouldnt you?

31st October 2006, 9:14 PM
Espeon like nearly everyone else said.

1st November 2006, 11:17 AM
Umbreon@Brightpowder (Female)
Attract/Double Team(if male)
Confuse Ray

Espeon@Petaya Berry
Sunny Day
HP fire
Morning Sun


1st November 2006, 4:17 PM
Espeon master, you bumped a thread that was 23 days from being ONE YEAR old. .-.

Just so I contribute something, use Espeon as it is more useful ingame (about equal in NB, depends on the team) and go with the Baton Passer and not the Sunny Day.

1st November 2006, 4:46 PM
Espeon is a speacial sweeper..very high special attack and speed... umbreon is a tank..i cant decide they are both very hard to choose from..

Umbreon Leftovers

Confuse Ray
Faint Attack
Body Slam

With this movepool and it holding leftovers it will sure be a tank..

Espeon. Brightpowder

Calm Mind
Morning Sun

With these types of movepool Espeon will probably take out any pokemon with its psychic attack after using calm mind

1st November 2006, 6:13 PM
Holy crap. ._.; This thread has been SERIOUSLY bumped. >___>

Espeon_master, DO NOT reply to threads that haven't been replied to for more than a month! Bumping threads is against the rules! D:
