- Eevee is a beloved Pokemon that has gained popularity due to its design and record-breaking number of evolutions.
- A talented Pokemon fan has created a new evolution for Eevee called Jadeon, inspired by the gemstone jade.
- Jadeon is characterized by its green color, black and gray tones, and has a naturally stiff face, but uses its healing abilities to show affection.
A talented Pokemon fan imagined Eevee as a Rock-type monster, giving it an evolution of this type for the first time. The Pokemon franchise has introduced over a thousand of critters in its time, but Eevee remains much loved by fans. Introduced in Gen 1, this Normal-type is a fox-like Pokemon that became a hit thanks to its design, gaining so much popularity at the point of getting a holiday in Japan called Eevee Day.
According to Guinness World Records, Eevee holds the record for the most evolutions, with a total of eight. In Gen 1, fans met Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon, while Gen 2 featured Espeon and Umbreon. A few years later, Gen 4 brought Leafeon and Glaceon, and finally, Gen 6 introduced Sylveon, the most recent Eeveelution. With the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, fans were hoping to see a new Eeveelution added in Gen 9, which didn’t happen. But one Pokemon fan has expanded that list by creating a new variant for Eevee based on a clever concept.

Pokemon Fan Gives Eevee an Evolution Inspired by Gemstones
Instagram user vcreateart imagined Eevee as a Rock-type Pokemon and got an impressive result. Named Jadeon, this Eeveelution takes its name from jade, a gemstone often characterized by its green color. Jadeon’s body has black and gray tones and a heart-shaped adornment on its chest. Its ears and tail are firm and have green details on the tips, while its face is a sort of mask. Eevee has different evolution methods, and the artist has added one more: to transform into Jadeon, Eevee needs to level up by holding a pair of jade studs, the same ones that become part of its body.
The Jadeon fan art also provides information that adds context to the evolution, aka the “Jewelry Pokemon,” into context. According to them, Jadeon has the abilities Clear Body and Rock Head, and unlike other Pokemon with high HP, it only has 90 HP. Jadeon’s lore says that this Pokemon has a naturally stiff face, which is why it can’t show its emotions, preferring to show its affection through actions. Jadeon is a caring Pokemon, using its healing abilities to help humans and Pokemon alike. Interestingly, this is another idea possibly inspired by jade, which some people believe has healing properties.
As January draws to a close, the Pokemon community turns its attention to this year’s Pokemon Day. While it’s unknown whether Eevee will get a new Eeveelution, Pokemon fans are waiting to find out what announcements will be made on Pokemon Day, renewing hopes that Eevee’s ninth evolution will be revealed.
