Espeon (エーフィ Eifie) is a Psychic type Pokémon introduced in Generation II, in the games Pokémon Gold and Silver. Espeon, along with Umbreon, are the second round of Eevee's evolutions introduced in these games.
Espeon's ability Synchronize passes on its status condition to the Pokémon that gave it the status change. Outside of battle, if Espeon is the lead Pokémon, its Synchronize ability gives the player a 50% chance of encountering a wild Pokémon with the same nature as Espeon.
A second ability available to Espeon is its Hidden Ability, Magic Bounce, only via the Dream World; This ability passes back all non-damaging status ailments, stat-lowering ailments (excluding Memento), entry hazard damages, etc. to the user.
Espeon is known as the Sun Pokémon and like the other Eevee evolutions, resembles a feline. Espeon's most recognizable features are its pronged tail, large ears and red gem in the center of its forehead. Espeon is covered in purple fur and has two noticeable fur patches under each ear.
 Gender Differences
Espeon has no distinguished features that make it appear male or female.
 In The Anime
Unlike some of the other Eevee evolutions, Espeon does not make any major appearances in the anime.
 Game Information
 Original Games
Espeon was first introduced in Generation II, along with Umbreon, as two new evolutions of Eevee. Espeon must be evolved (via Happiness during the day) in order to be obtained in the games without trading.
Espeon is available as a prize, obtainable in a game through the Pokémon website, via the Dream World.
 Spin-Off Games
Espeon is available as a Starter Pokémon in Pokémon Colosseum; it is unique in this respect as a Psychic-type and, along with Umbreon, a fully evolved Starter Pokémon. Espeon can also be chosen as an evolution of Eevee, the Starter Pokémon in Colosseum's sequel, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, by selecting a Sun Shard at a shop early in the game.

 Competitive Information
However, with the addition of the Dream World ability Magic Bounce in Generation V, Espeon jumped up to OU in usage for its ability not only to completely prevent the opponent from using Status moves or setting up hazards, but for the ability to deflect them right back at the enemy team.
