Pokemon Unite Espeon

Pokemon Unite is a massively popular free-to-play multiplayer title in the hugely successful franchise.

It was recently revealed that Espeon would be added to the game, with the Eevee evolution being available for the first time.

With Eevee and its evolutions being some of the most popular Pokemon in the entire franchise, the announcement of Espeon being added to the ever-growing game got a ton of reaction online from the player base.

Here are some of the reactions from the Pokemon Unite player base to the upcoming release of Espeon in the game.

Pokemon Unite Twitter Fans React

The official Pokemon Unite Twitter account confirmed that Espeon would be coming to the game on Monday 16th May 2022: “This Ranged Attacker uses its psychic power to predict your victory! Espeon arrives in #PokemonUNITE on 5/16.”

Fans have been reacting to the news since it was dropped by the developers, and many on Twitter were extremely happy that the ‘Eeveelution’ is coming to the game.

One player noted: “[my] Favourite eeveelution is is in the game,” whilst another stated that they “might start playing now.”

This view was shared by other gamers, with one tweeting: “Second favourite pokemon is coming? I guess I’ll be playing again now (also holding out hope for Umbreon still).”

Reddit Reacts

A thread on the r/PokemonUnite Subreddit also discussed the official announcement of the evolution joining the game.

There were Redditors on the thread who were asking why the developers are not looking at bringing more Speedsters to the game.

One player wrote in reaction to someone asking about Jolteon potentially coming to the game: “Jolteon probably won’t get implemented because the devs have a problem with speedsters.”

Another player would note that: “I mean this is cool but at this point, I am BEGGING for a new speedster.”

That view was shared by a player who asked: “Where are the speedsters??” so it isn’t a one-off opinion that there are not enough of that Pokemon-type in the game currently.

It remains to be seen if we will be seeing more Eeveelutions added to the game going forward, but for now, fans can look forward to the imminent release of Espeon in Pokemon Unite!
