Eevee has multiple transformations, and you can capture many of them in Pokémon Go. Of course, how you go about evolving Eevee into those Pokémon varies. But if you break it down and think about it, which of these transformations is the best one?

The Eevee evolutions do vary in stats. Let’s share how those stats differ from each other.

  • Flareon
    • PvP: Max CP – 3,029, attack – 206, defense – 153, stamina – 140
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,424, attack – 246, defense – 179, stamina – 163
  • Vaporeon
    • PvP: Max CP – 3,114, attack – 173, defense – 139, stamina – 230
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,521, attack – 205, defense – 161, stamina – 277
  • Jolteon
    • PvP: Max CP – 2,888, attack – 195, defense – 155, stamina – 140
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,265, attack – 232, defense – 182, stamina – 163
  • Espeon
    • PvP: Max CP – 3,170, attack – 218, defense – 150, stamina – 140
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,583, attack – 261, defense – 175, stamina – 163
  • Umbreon
    • PvP: Max CP – 2,137, attack – 111, defense – 201, stamina – 182
    • PvE: Max CP – 2,416, attack – 126, defense – 240, stamina – 216
  • Leafeon
    • PvP: Max CP – 2,944, attack – 182, defense – 184, stamina – 140
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,328, attack – 216, defense – 219, stamina – 163
  • Glaceon
    • PvP: Max CP – 3,126, attack – 199, defense – 173, stamina – 140
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,535, attack – 238, defense – 205, stamina – 163
  • Sylveon
    • PvP: Max CP – 3,069, attack – 172, defense – 173, stamina – 182
    • PvE: Max CP – 3,470, attack – 203, defense – 205, stamina – 216

When you round out all of the stats, Espeon has the highest CP and the highest attack, with Umbreon having the highest defense and Vaporeon having the highest stamina.

If you plan on using any of these Pokémon in the PvP scene, we highly recommend you use Umbreon in the Great or Ultra League. It has a superb defense, making it an excellent tank Pokémon. Previously, Umbreon was the standout choice when it came to any of these evolutions. However, the recently added Sylveon is arguably the best choice among them. With it being a Fairy-type, it’s a critical Pokémon capable of beating Bug, Dark, Dragon, and Fighting-type Pokémon, making it a crucial choice for those looking to counter these frequently used Pokémon in the Ultra or Master League.

If you use Sylveon, make sure to keep it powered up for that Ultra League, but keep it under 2,500 CP. When you want to use it in the Master League, it can’t compete in that specific category until you power it up using XL Candy. Although, it’ll be beneficial for players to use it in the Master League Classic. It’s essentially a budget Togekiss, without the diverse moveset.

Glaceon has slowly become a useful option in the Master Leagues, depending on the team you want to make and the Ultra League. You can use many of the other Pokémon against Team Rocket members or in low-tier raids, but beyond Umbreon, Sylveon, and Glaceon, most of the Eevee’s evolutions are much better when used in the PvE side of Pokémon Go.

Overall, Syvelon has risen to the top as one of the best Eevee evolutions, with Umbreon and Glaceon not too far behind. Glaceon is a good choice to counter several Dragon-types in the Master League. However, just like Sylveon, it needs to be powered by XL candy to compete.
