A talented Pokemon Sword & Shield fan gave Eevee new evolution types with some mind-blowing creations. The artist expanded the beloved character’s Eeveelutions with epic concepts.

Pokemon made its debut with Red & Blue in 1998 on the Game Boy. The groundbreaking RPG introduced players to over 151 monsters to catch – including the popular Eevee.

Across the series, the Gen I character has had over eight new evolution forms added to the franchise. However, an extremely talented artist has brought new Eeveelutions to life with their stunning art.

Artist creates new Pokemon Eeveelution types

Introduced in Gen I, the Normal-type has eight evolution forms: Water, Fire, Electric, Dark, Fairy, Grass, Psychic, and Ice. A skilled artist went viral on Reddit when they re-imagined what the monster would look like with its missing elemental types.

Creator ‘PTickles‘ shared their take on what Eevee would look like as a Steel-type named Guardeon. Perfect for Sword & Shield, the character adorably wears a coat of knight’s armor.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the user also gave the new character the Stalwart ability, and explained that the evolution is achieved by leveling it up while knowing the Mirror Coat move.

This isn’t the first time the creative fan has posted their concepts. On July 22, they uploaded their incredible take on Eevee as a Fighting type named Champeon. Looking ready for battle, the monster sports leg and wrist wraps.

I’m currently working on making an Eeveelution for every unused type (including Normal) and decided to start with the Fighting type! from pokemon

PTickles stated their project was to give the Pokemon all of its missing types, and for the fourth one they created a Ghost form called Omeon. In the concept, the ‘mon wears a skull-like mask with a purple ghost flame on its tail.

If you want to see the rest of their Eeveelutions, check out the artist’s page here. While Game Freak will no doubt one day create new official types for Eevee to evolve into, this amazing artwork truly shows the all the possibilities.

Pokemon entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield in November 2019. The latest title in the long-running RPG franchise is already the third fastest-selling title in the series. It’s proof that the Gotta Catch ‘Em All design has never been more popular.

Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.

That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!

Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.

While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.

Snivy

So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.

Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.

Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
