Description: After exposure to a Water Stone, Vaporeon is one of the many evolutions (or Eeveelutions if you will) of Eevee. Colored in light and dark blues, white and cream, Vaporeon has sprouted a long tail that has often been mistook for a mermaid, dark blue spine ridges, and fins surrounding its face and ears, as well as fully functional gills. Vaporeon can live perfectly happy lives on land or in fresh water lakes, though they are rarely found in the wild.

Vaporeon can detect increasing moisture in the air and will vibrate their fins to signal oncoming rain. It is also capable of altering its cellular structure to match water, allowing it to simply melt into water and blend in perfectly. The widespread availability of Eevees in Pokémon Go along with its speed and impressive attacks made Vaporeon one of the best Pokémon to have when the game first released. While there are better options now, it still remains one of the easier to acquire and an excellent choice for a pure Water type attacker.
