Steel and Dragon appear to fit the them of Galar.

I’m curious how a Flying type Eeveelution will turn out. Is it really just going to be an Eevee with wings.

I really want a new eeveelution, but part of me thinks they won’t release one this gen. I’d love to be wrong about that. The one good thing about removing megas and z moves is that the name of eevee’s z move can’t be used as a reason for why it’s not getting another evolution.

I wonder if we will only get one this time. I thought it was kinda odd that Sylveon was released by itself at the time. And if we get two, I hope gamefreak doesn't decide to version exclusive. They didn't in the past that I remember.

the beginning 3 flareon vaporeon jolteon - evo stones
2 gen two umbreon espeon - day/night + friendship
2 gen four galceon leafeon - train by icy/mossy boulder
1 gen six sylveon - train with fairy move

What do you think the method of evolution will be for the new one(s)?

Doubtful.

GF always has them revolve in a way that shows off something of that gen.

Gen 1-evolutionary stones
Gen 2- Fay and night cycle
Gen 4-environmental factors
Gen 6-Affection and fairy type.


So they’ll probably depend on some new feature that gets introduced this gen. Maybe soemthong related to the wilds.

I've been thinking for a long while that the next Eeveelution will be Ground-type due to Lana obtaining an Eevee and nicknaming it "Sandy"(or Nagisa meaning "shore" in the Japanese version).

The anime has been known to tease things through the main characters before, and it'll probably be no different with revealing an Eeveelution. ...then again, it could just be promotion for Let's Go.

I definitely think they will continue adding eeveelutions at least till all the types are filled out. After all, Eeveelutions are a money-making machine and it will continue to please the majority of the fans.
Unless Game Freak changes the mind. Since Game Freak did plan to purge some Pokémon from Sword/Shield, new Eeveelutions might be stopped.

But do we actually think we might get more than one.
We got 2 new Eeveelutions in Gen 2 and Gen 4, so my assumption is if we knew there were adding new ones, there would be two again.

But ha! What about Gen 6? Fairy was a new type and a lot of focus obviously on it, having a single Fairy type Eeveelution made sense.

Considering Eevee is at the high of its popularity right now, it seems perfectly fitting to release another evolution for it this Gen.
Agreed. Off the back of LGE it makes sense.

That's because it was only introduced to be a representative of the new Fairy typing. If Gen 7 hadn't introduced the type, there very likely wouldn't even be a new eeveeution then.

Patterns are okay, but they're not guaranteed and should only be taken with a grain of salt.

Taking it's sword and shield. That steel armored one that I saw makes e hope it gets a good ability like buffed Heatproof (67% damage reduction and rise of defense and sp. defense) or Bulletproof or something totally new?(Slashproof or Ramproof???)

we got in gen 6 fairy. Steel, dragon and poison would make big sense now. If not poison now then ghost and poison next gen.

Dragon and Steel fit totally in Sword and Shield.

I would like to see Pokémon like Oricorio, Rotom, Castform, Wormadam, Meowstic, or Cherrim evolve. It would be interesting to see cross-gen evolutions that also get multiple forms (I don’t think we’ve had that yet if you don’t count gender-differences and Megas).

EDIT: I...may have misread the title of this thread. Whoops. Hoping for a Ghost-type Eeveelution.

Gen 6 introduced Fairy's though.
