Hi everyone. Welcome to out 100th Pokémon of the Week. Finally we’re reviewing the most voted Pokémon, it won by few votes, but we have a winner now and it’s Espeon, the sun Pokémon.


It’s been over a year since we last reviewed this Pokémon and not much has changed, Espeon has very good special attack as you can see (I added base stats to its general data), decent special defense and speed, unfortunately it has low defense and HP, it’s special move; morning sun, is an interesting twist if you’re using a sunny day strategy. It is also good as a baton passer.


Synchronize is also a pretty good ability, if you get poisoned, paralyzed or burned, your opponent too. It’s very simple and effective. If your opponent forgets Espeon’s ability it is capable of breaking entire strategies.


So, the move combinations for today are…



Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).

Equip: Petaya berry.

EV´s: 252 Speed, 252 Special attack, 6 Defense.

- Calm mind

- Psychic

- Morning sun

- HP fire


Heal and use calm mind. Works better if sunny day is on, so you want to use this one when using sunny day strategy. Great set for double battles.



Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).

Equip: Leftovers.

EV´s: 252 Speed, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.

- Calm mind

- Baton pass

- Morning sun

- Psychic


This is a more defensive set, focused on baton passing some special attack and special defense. It is also capable of healing itself for multiple uses.



Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack), Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).

Equip: Salac berry.

EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP.

- Calm mind

- Shadow ball

- Grass knot / HP ice / HP fighting

- Psychic


If you don’t want to use morning sun this is your direct special sweeper. Grass knot is awesome, but you are free to choose HP according to your needs. I’d say this is the standard set for competitive play.


When should I use this Pokémon?

You voted for it, so I’d say you like it a lot (just as me). It may not be as used as Alakazam, but it is still a good special sweeper and a fantastic baton passer. Definitely a good choice for your 100th Pokémon of the week.


What should I use against this Pokémon?

Gengar is a pretty good option. Mean look Umbreon will defeat it for sure. Fast or boosted physical sweepers as Tyranitar or Garchomp will also be good counters.


Bottom line:

This way our 100th Pokémon of the week has been reviewed. I want to thank Pojosama for letting me contribute every week. Thanks to all of you for your e-mails with feedback, questions, suggestions and congratulations. Thank you very much for reading every week because this is all thanks to you, and as long as there are Pokémon to review, I’ll be glad to do it the best I can. Keep sending your feedback. It is always analyzed and considered. I’m already thinking about some changes for our section. Thanks again.





If you have questions about any game or specific strategy feel free to write to reeve@pojo.com if you find that you can’t write to that address or I don’t answer because of some issues, then try reeve.ryu@gmail.com I’ll be glad to help, trade or battle you…


Hope you enjoyed.
