Espeon Will Be the Next Pokemon Unite Eevee Evolution

Another Eevee evolution will appear in Pokemon Unite, as Espeon is on the way. The character was teased back on May 6, 2022. The official Twitter account showed Eevee in front of a decorative screen. Now, we know Espeon will show up in-game on May 16, 2022.

There’s no gameplay footage of Espeon in Pokemon Unite yet. The announcement only showed off how the psychic-type will look in-game. It did confirm what sort of role the Eevee evolution will play, though. It will be classified as a ranged attacker. Fellow ranged attackers already in-game include Alolan Ninetails, Greninja, and Pikachu. One of the last recent additions, Duraludon, is also another ranged attacker.

Only one other Eevee evolution is present in Pokemon Unite at the moment. That’s Sylveon. It joined the cast in October 2022. Like Espeon, it is also another ranged attacker.

There’s another Pokemon Unite update on the way, though it’s been delayed. A subscription that would give people gems, Holowear, and license trials were teased. It was supposed to launch in May 2022. However, the official account noted that the launch date was an error and the service is delayed.

Pokemon Unite is available on the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, and Espeon will appear on May 16, 2022.
