Leafeon (リーフィア) is the 169th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Grass-Type, and is known as the Verdant Pokémon.

Leafeon uses the Leaf Guard Ability, an Ability that protects it from receiving any Status Conditions during periods of strong sunlight. Its Hidden Ability is Chlorophyll, which also takes effect during periods of strong sunlight, doubling its Speed during said weather conditions.

Eevee can evolve into a Leafeon if it Levels Up in an area that has a Moss Rock.

Leafeon is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 8,960 Steps to hatch. It takes Leafeon One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Biology

Physiology

Like its fellow Eevee Evolutions, it takes its form on four legs, with its distinctive big eyes. Leafeon, known as the Verdant Pokémon, takes on grass characteristics with leaf-like ears, a leafy tail and mane, and muddy colored feet. It is tan almost throughout its body and grows leaves sporadically with the most noticeable one in between both ears on top of its head.

Gender Differences

Leafeon has no distinguished features that make it appear male or female.

Game Information

Original Games

In all of its game appearances, the only way to obtain Leafeon is to evolve an Eevee. As there is no Mossy Rock in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Eevee cannot evolve into Leafeon in these games.

Spin-Off Games

Leafeon can be found at Deep Dusk Forest 1F-12F and Sky Stairway 1F-49F in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Leafeon is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Weird Mountain 11F-21F.

Leafeon appear at Vien Forest in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Leafeon can be found in the Back Room on the second floor of the Oblivia Region Sky Fortress in the Present, and in the Forest Temple mission "A Pokémon Forest in the Way" in the Past by defeating it and obtaining its Slate.

A Leafeon can be found at the Meadow Zone in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure. To obtain it, you'll have to complete a Tag Race after obtaining at least 20 Pokémon. In PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, Leafeon appears at Windmill Way in the Arbor Area after retrieving it from Wish Park. To befriend it you'll have to complete an Obstacle Course in which you'll have to destroy three boxes and return.

The only way to obtain a Leafeon in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve an Eevee.

Trading Card Game

Leafeon is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Rising Rivals and Dark Explorers sets; and as a Rare Card in the Majestic Dawn (2) Undaunted and Call of Legends sets. A third Leafeon is listed as an Ultra Rare Card in the Majestic Dawn set, but this Leafeon is a Lv. X Card.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

Zoey's Leafeon
Leafeon has only made a few anime appearances thus far. Most of its appearances are with Zoey, who obtained one to use, prior to the episode Double-Time Battle Training!, in her contests.

Zoey obtains Leafeon in order to change up her battling style and give her an edge prior to her participation in the Grand Festival. Since then, Zoey has used Leafeon quite a few times against Dawn.

Zoey used her Leafeon at the Grand Festival in her battle against Nando. Leafeon helped Zoey win and was a vital part of her success.


Movies

Another trainer would use a Leafeon during Giratina and the Sky Warrior, the lone appearance for Leafeon in the Movies as of writing.

Manga

Leafeon's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Leafeon is in the PU Tier in competitive battling. While both its Special Attack and Special Defense aren't strong, it more than makes up for it with a good Speed, high Attack and even higher Defense. It also has a variety of options that it can use in terms of a moveset, which include removing Status Conditions, Baton Passing Statistic boosts to a teammate, or functioning as a defensive wall. Fire-Type Pokémon are a major threat to Leafeon, and anything faster than it outside of Chlorophyll being active that can use a Fire-Type move or a Special Attack has a good chance to seriously damage Leafeon, if not defeat it.
