Combos With: Eeveelutions

virusyosh

Happy Friday, Pojo readers! Today we're reviewing a Pokemon from Generation I that we've never reviewed before! Today's Card of the Day is Eevee (#90) from Plasma Freeze.
 
Eevee is a Basic Colorless Pokemon. Colorless-types go well into any deck as secondary attackers and support Pokemon, but the primary reason you'll be playing Eevee is to play one of its myriad of evolutions. 60 HP is the new standard for evolving Basics, so Eevee should be able to do some work for you in the early-game...if your opponent doesn't get an awesome setup with a Pokemon-EX. Fighting Weakness isn't a huge deal (Landorus will OHKO anyway), no Resistance is what we've come to expect, and a Retreat Cost of one is very manageable.
 
The Evolution Pokemon has two attacks. Signs of Evolution allows you to search for three different Pokemon of three different types that evolve from Eevee and put them into your hand for a Colorless Energy. This is a great setup attack in both Modified and Limited, and even if you only grab one Eeveelution, you'll still be able to evolve next turn and continue with your game plan. There's not much more to be said about this, other than noting that the attack specifies "of different types", so no grabbing three Flareons. Bite is Eevee's form of offense, dealing 30 damage for three Colorless Energy. You'll almost never use this attack except in Limited, and even then, it's not great. Of course, since Eevee's primary job is to evolve (and that's covered by Signs of Evolution), you probably won't have to worry about it.
 
Modified: 2.5/5 This Eevee is good if you're running a build containing an Eeveelution (Flareon/Cofagrigus comes to mind), as it has a way of getting Flareon out fairly easily. You'll never use Bite here, but as stated above, Eevee does what it needs to do.
 
Limited: 3.5/5 Eevee does its work here, as well. If you manage to pull any Eeveelutions, Signs of Evolution can bring consistency to your deck as well as allowing you to plan against your opponent's threats, whatever they may be. Once again, you'll rarely use Bite here (it's really expensive), but it's passable in a bind.

Eevee

Signs of Evolution is a powerful attack, and the only shame is that you may not even run play three different types of Eevee evolutions in your deck. It's particularly strong in limited, where cards that search evolutions are difficult to come by.

Modified: 3.5/5

Limited: 4.5/5
