Leafeon is a Grass type Pokemon introduced in Generation IV. It evolves from Eevee when it is leveled up near a Moss Rock, from Generations IV to VII, or exposed to a Leaf Stone, in Generation VIII. It is one of Eevee’s final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon and Sylveon. Take a look below for 27 fun and interesting facts about Leafeon.

4. Leafeon’s ears and tail have a leafy appearance.
5. It has brown eyes and a small, brown nose.
6. This Pokémon’s cellular structure is similar to plants, which allows it to perform photosynthesis and purify the air around it by sleeping under patches of sunshine; it gets its energy in this way instead of eating.

10. According to the Diamond and Pearl Pokédex, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Umbreon have identical footprints.
11. As there is no Moss Rock in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it is impossible to evolve Eevee into a Leafeon in these games. The same applies for Magnezone, Probopass, and Glaceon. All have to be traded from Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum to be obtained.
12. Despite Eevee being obtainable before the Pokémon League in Pokémon Black and White Versions 2, it cannot evolve into Leafeon until after the Elite Four is defeated. The same applies with Glaceon.

Leafeon could be an exaggerated example of this story.
20. Leafeon is a combination of leaf and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee’s English prototype name.
