    Default Are the Eeveelutions overrated?

    I think it's cool that Eevee has so many different evolutions, but do you think that it really needs so many and are the evolutions overrated? Battle wise in the games they're not that strong of battlers, or at least that's from my own experience. I think the best battler is Leafeon since it really helped me out in Platinum. Umbreon is probably my favorite altogether but there are batter Dark types to battle with. I'll admit I like the designs for a lot of them but I think that they should either stop at Sylveon or maybe give it 2 more evolutions and leave it at 10 since anything more than that will be too much.

    I wouldn't say they're overrated. Their cute design and useful abilities they bring to battle makes them deserving of the hype they receive. Magic Bounce Espeon can be quite a force to be reckoned with, and Hydration Vaporeon is very useful on Rain teams.

    All popular Pokemon are. Now excuse me while I get back to my Koffing and Drowzee.

    Overexposed I guess. Never liked them except Umbreon. I guess Vaporeon is useful somewhat.

    I don't think so. Even Eevee himself is less overrated than Pikachu.

    I want to think not. Maybe oft-seen, but not overplayed.

    Separately, they aren't as great as some others in their types. Their movepools feel limited in ways.
    Together they're even worse because, since they're all mono-type, you're missing so many options.

    I do like their designs, however. All are well-thought and memorable.

    As far as fanfiction and role plays go, yes yes yes yes yes. On another forum I hang out on, it's practically impossible to join a RP without having to deal with at least five of them. I'm not sure about competitive battling and whatnot, as I don't participate in those sorts of things.

    Their designs are what I like most about them. Umbreon and Flareon are my personal favorites due to their designs. I'm not too sure about them battle wise since I don't really use Eeveelutions on my team. The only time I did was when I used Vaporeon on FireRed, and it's not the best Water type but it got the job done for me.

    I'm not sure if I would say that they're overrated. I think that other pokemon are a bit more exposed than the Eevee's, like Lucario for example. I do however think that they should let Sylveon be the last Eeveelution, though I doubt that they will. I feel that if they make too many then it'll be like they're making them just for the sake of making them.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    Too true.

    They're mostly overhyped. Visit a certain pokemon-related forum and you'll see at least one or two group of people overhyping the Eeveelutions.

    I haven't seen them much in competitive battling, so I wouldn't say they're overrated in that regard.

    Fanfic and RP, hell yes. Especially when there are so many obscure Pokemon that would be interesting to write about or make more sense (aren't Eevees supposed to be rare?)

    I think that they are definitely overrated in fanfics. I find that for mostly every Pokemon OC I come across they have some type of Eeveelution of their team or even several of them. Umbreon and Espeon are the most common I see. And sometimes you have OC's with a team of all Eeveelutions.

    No way. EEVEE is just a unique pokemon. Its cool that it can evolve into so many kinds of pokemon.

    Oh yes. The only thing I care for Eevee that it has (almost) useful evolutions. That is the only thing I like 'bout them, however. I don't think they are cute, personally. They are overrated (Or should I say overused.) as Pokesonas, RPs, fanfics, in teams, (A full team of Eeveelutions Eevee evolutions, I mean.) etc etc.

    Yes, I think they are somewhat undeserving of the hype they get. They have some of the plainest, most uninspired designs of all Pokemon, and yet have a staggering degree of popularity. Such is the power of generic cuteness and a resemblance to household pets.

    They're marketed too much. They are highly popular, but I think it's a result of the excessive marketing and legitimate popularity among some fans.
