Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX features Eevee as one of the 12 starter Pokemon - here's our guide to this lovable Kanto Pokemon!

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX includes Eevee as one of the 12 starter Pokemon that you can choose to start with.

One Pokemon has stood above the rest with the Pokemon community, and that, of course, is Eevee.

The furry Pokemon has been a staple of the franchise for decades now and fans cannot wait to use Eevee in Mystery Dungeon.

If the popular Kanto Pokemon is your choice in the new Mystery Dungeon game, here's our guide to this Pokemon.

Be sure to watch our wide variety of Pokemon content here!

Eevee Guide

The Generation 1 Normal-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Eevee is chosen if the personality results are either Hardy (for male) or Brave (for female) in nature.

It has normal mobility, meaning it cannot traverse through water, lava and cloud tiles and walls without the assistance of a mobility-enhancing item or a certain IQ skill.

Eevee is a normal type, which means it is weak to fighting types, so you should pair it with a flying type. Unfortunately, there are no flying type starters - the closest is Torchic who doesn't learn Peck until later in the game.

Most Pokemon you will face early on are flying types, so pairing Eevee with Pikachu is a good option.


How To Get Eevee

Eevee can be chosen at the start of the game as either the player or partner.

Eevee can also be found in the middle floors of Joyous Tower and Purity Forest and has a recruit rate of 10.2%.

Evolving Eevee

Evolution does not play a massive part in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, so it is perfectly ok to keep Eevee as it is.

Although stats do not increase from evolution, moves can vary. Once it evolves into an elemental type such as Flareon, Vaporeon or Jolteon, it can learn type-specific moves.

If you do wish to evolve Eevee, you will need to finish the main story and enter the Luminous Cave with the following items:

  • Flareon - Fire Stone located in Firey Field
  • Jolteon - Thunder Stone located in Lightning Field
  • Vaporeon - Water Stone located in Northwind Field
  • Espeon - High IQ (4 Stars) + Sun Ribbon located in Wyvern Hill
  • Umbreon - High IQ (4 Stars) + Lunar Ribbon located in Northwind Field

Be sure to check our evolution guide for more details.
