Trading Card Game
Vaporeon has had quite a few anime appearances. Vaporeon made its first appearance in The Battling Eevee Brothers and has proceeded to appear many other times. The most notable appearance comes in the Sinnoh Grand Festival where Ursala actually evolves one of her Eevees into a Vaporeon as part of her appeal.
In Generation VI, Vaporeon currently resides in the UnderUsed (UU) tier. Vaporeon is among many bulky Water-types in UU and faces immense competition from other bulky waters such as Suicune, Empoleon, and Swampert, all of which have more significant niches than Vaporeon does. Vaporeon's biggest competition is Alomomola, who has much higher physical bulk than Vaporeon does allowing it to counter Pokemon like Mamoswine that Vaporeon gets 2HKOed by, great ability in Regenerator, and ability to similarly pass huge Wishes to other Pokemon. However, Vaporeon does benefit from having better special bulk than Alomomola, along with helpful support moves like Roar and Heal Bell that Alomomola lacks, with the former keeping Vaporeon from being setup bait while the latter makes Vaporeon capable of performing as a cleric. Vaporeon's ability Water Absorb has its own perks such as being able to counter Suicune with no real problems and phase it out with Roar to avoid being setup bait.
