The Problem With Eevee ...

OK, so I'm, like, desperately in need of some advice.
You see, I was playing through White 2 earlier (nuzlocking), and I finally got to the park in the middle of Castelia Sewers. I didn't expect much, particularly since the last save file I was there all I could find was Audino, but lo and behold, a freaking Eevee appeared! I was so excited when I caught it, dreaming of training a beautiful Glaceon, but then ...
I looked at his stats:
- Nature = Brave (+Atk, -Spd)
- Characteristic = Likes to thrash about (+Atk).
What the Hell am I supposed to do with that??
Obviously, the specially-focused Eeveelutions (Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon and, worst of all, Glaceon) are totally off-limits, so that leaves me with Flareon, Umbreon and Leafeon to choose from. Now, it's not that I don't like these eeveelutions, but it's just kind of an awkward position. For example, I'd totally be up for raising a Flareon, but they just have such terrible stats & moves, and I really can't afford to be risking this sort of stuff considering that it's a nuzlocke and all (not to mention the fact that the final gym for this game is Water, and I'll be coming up to a Ground gym soon).
Umbreon would work fine, particularly since it has a type advatage over two of the E4, but I've already raised one for competitive play on HGSS, and I don't like reraising mons. Leafeon would be cool too, and would work very well with my Eevee's focus on attack. Also, Leafeon's Grass-typing would help a lot in the upcoming battles against Elesa & Clay, especially Elesa (since my strongest team mates are Flying, Water and Normal-types) and probably Water-leader Marlon too. The only thing bugging me is the fact that his nature would drag down his species' speed bonus (95 base stat), which seems like an unnecessary waste.
I just can't decide how to handle this. This is exactly why we need new Eeveelutions; if there was a sort of physical alternative to Vaporeon (130 HP, 110 Atk, 95 Def, 65 Spd), that would totally solve all my problems here. Perhaps a Ground or even a Normal type. *Sigh* maybe in Gen VI ...
