Over the past few weeks, dataminers have leaked heaps of data regarding the new Pokémon being introduced to Pokémon Unite. One of the popular leaks was that Espeon will soon join Pokémon Unite as a playable Pokémon and now it is official. It is also expected that Delphox will be released in the game soon. Espeon will be available as a playable Pokémon in the Pokémon Unite MOBA.
Introducing Espeon, a new Eevee evolution Pokémon
Espeon is a psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Espeon is a mammalian Pokémon with cat-like features with purple fur all over its body. Espeons’ are extremely loyal to their trainers and can be easily evolved during the day. Espeon has a gem on its head which accumulates psychic energy, by being in the sun. This makes them poor choices for fighting in the dark. Espeon has originally made its debut in 1999 in the Pokémon Gold and Silver series.
Espeon’s introduction to Pokémon Unite was first leaked by famous dataminer ElChicoEevee through a series of posts on his Twitter. Now, the Pokémon is making its way to the official roster. A trailer for Espeon has not been released yet, but it might be released in the following days.
Espeon will be available to play as a ranged attacker with a Novice difficulty level. Espeon is the second Eevee evolution to be added to Pokémon Unite, joining Sylveon. While both Espeon and Sylveon have the same starting movesets as Eevee, in Pokémon Unite they have completely different roles. Despite its fairly built physical structure, Espeon’s arsenal of psychic-type moves prove to be game-changers during fights and raids.
Fast moves like Confusion deal very high damage, but Zen headbutt can also be used. On the other hand, charge moves like Psybeam and Future Sight can also be used. Legacy charge moves like Shadow ball and last resort can also be used.
