Yeah, those two did come off as unexpected, plus Cilan has yet to have a spoiled capture. Well actually Dwebble's capture was at least hinted at, Stunfisk was more of the surprise. Basically there is not such a thing as a Pokémon that would or wouldn't fit Cilan, he could get anything and they would work for him no matter how unexpected it is.
If the scenario I explained will happen, then it will be better if Ash will be the one to catch Eevee anyway.

On the subject of a potential Eevee capture, I've always hoped for Ash to get one that would later evolve into an Espeon. Then again, if this was ever going to happen it would probably have been done a long time ago. I've just always liked the thought of Ash owning an Espeon as a direct contrast to Gary's Umbreon, with the two battling each other at some point. If anybody does catch an Eevee in this saga though, I can see this leading to it evolving into a new Gen VI Eeveelution, much like May's did. However, instead of it evolving in or for the purpose of its trainer's cameo arc in the following regional saga, it would most probably do so during Best Wishes Season 2 for the sake of promotion and hyping up the new Generation.
Ash only caught Aipom toward the end of the AG series, but it seems that Eevee will appear this year. Perhaps Eevee won't be caught in 2012 and will instead appear as a recurring Pokémon to be caught later (see Ash's Krokorok), or it will be caught but won't get much training until 2013. But if Cilan or even Iris catches Eevee, I agree that it would be better if it evolved during this season.
a new set of eevee toys coming out now promises "the pokemon eevee which will be featured in the anime starting this fall!". all these goods begin in october -- so be prepared for whoever catches it to catch it then.
Just because it appears doesn't mean that it is caught by a main character. Kotetsu might own it or it might be a recurring Pokémon like Meloetta.
And what's the point of making an eevee a recurring pokemon? Indeed Kotetsu can have it, but, only if he stays with the group.
They always can pull an aipom/gible situation on us and make the pokemon follow the gang until its eventual capture. In this case, since Cilan caught nothing in a while, I'll bet on him. Ash can have a chance, but, I sincerly doubt.
Man, when you stop to think of it DP did have some crap in it. Its just that when people think about DP, they only remember Paul, Pokehunter J/Galactic and all the Gyms and Contests episodes....basically the good parts.And... there are actually a lot of BW episodes that have pissed me off. By this point it'd be easier to just list the ones that I can stand to watch. The more the series progresses, the more the writing of these episodes piss me off.
well, a new issue of pokemon fan comes out on september 20th. we will surely find out what is up with october episodes in that issue :)
Ash should get more Pokemon from the Kanto region
