With all of the Eeveelutions now available in Pokémon Go, players are curious which ones they should prioritize in battle. This is a difficult question to answer because multiple situations may require different Eevee.
Yet some are used more frequently than others due to how often they function as counters. This guide covers what we consider to be the best and most useful forms of Eevee. We've listed alphabetically rather than ranked because each of these Eevee could be considered the best in their respective situation.
- Type: Psychic
- Best Use: Offensive PvE
Espeon uses Psychic attacks, which will be unshielded in most battles with Team GO Rocket and in raids. While not the strongest Psychic Pokemon, if you don't have a direct counterattack against a Raid Pokemon, Espeon works as a great filler that deals super effective damage more often than less damage. efficient.

- Type: Ice Cream
- Best Use: Gym Battles
Glaceon is often underestimated because it is an Ice Pokémon, which has many type weaknesses. However, Gyms are saturated with Dragon Pokémon, which are very weak against Ice attacks. If you enjoy taking over Gyms in your area, Glaceon is one of the best Pokémon to have on your team.
- Type: Fairy
- Best Use: Pro-bending PvP
Sylveon and Glaceon are fine against the Dragons, but Sylveon takes over the Master League because you don't know what you're getting into when you join. It deals heavy damage to the most common types in Master League (Dragons), and its weaknesses are some of the rarest in Master League. This makes it the ideal candidate for the PvP environment.
- Type: Dark
- Best Use: Great League and Ultra League PvP
Espeon uses dark attacks, which deal heavy damage under normal circumstances and counter some of the more commonly used PvP Pokémon. The Great League and Ultra League have fewer dragon types than the Master League, and fighters in this league tend to rely on Psychic or Ghost Pokemon more often.
- Type: Water
- Best Use: Defensive PvE
If you need to stall and chip away at an opponent's health and charge attack shields, Water works great. It has a high max CP and few direct weaknesses. This might be its only advantage, as Water Pokemon don't have much offensive power against the strongest Pokemon in the game.
