Angry Eevee is a ridiculously popular starter.

I've been seeing many people request Eevee as a starter. I can't see why it is so popular besides it's evolution diversity. But if you need/want a specific type to start with, why not just request a pokemon of that type rather than get it and wait for it to evolve?

Don't know why they would want to evolve it. Couldn't it then use all of its evos attacks then.

I believe you answered your own question.

Maybe because the Eevee family is cool.

Well, I guess it's just my opinion. The only one that really appeals to me slightly is Jolteon, but there are much better and cooler electric types out there (Electivire, Magnezone, and Electrode win).

Well, Eevee is popular cause all the Evos it can go into .-., especially Espeon, which is not used alot, can own if you tm it correctly.

But not alot of Eevee evos have good move sets.

No, you can't. You can only use moves learned naturally by that specific Pokemon, or TM's/HM's if you have them. Not real sure about tutor moves, but you get the idea.

Exactly. It's all a matter of opinion. Eevee is popular not only because of its diversity in evolution, but because just about everyone likes at least one of those evolutions. I myself adore Espeon. And, they all have fairly decent stats, though they may specialize in one thing, like Special Attack or HP.

But really, that's why there's so many Pokemon. Everyone has their own preference, and they know what they like, so there's a large variety of Pokemon in order to please everyone. But, that doesn't mean that you have to like what everyone else does. Being your own individual is another part of Pokemon, and the URPG, too, because you can get any Pokemon you want here with some effort.

I suggest taking a look at the Pokemon people chose for the War roleplay. A bunch of them have Espeons.

Why do they do that?

- Jolteon is one of the better Electric types
- Vaporeon is a decent water, that can HAZE.
- Flareon is cute. Some people choose by cuteness!
- Espeon is pretty good if TMed.
- UMBREON. No explanation of this one needed.
