Umbreon VMAX, Jolteon VMAX, Vaporeon VMAX, and More Revealed from ‘Eevee Heroes’

More of the new Eeveelution VMAXes have been revealed from the upcoming Japanese set Eevee Heroes!

Umbreon VMAX and Glaceon VMAX come from from the set itself, while Flareon VMAX, Vaporeon VMAX, Jolteon VMAX, or Espeon VMAX will be included in the previously revealed promo booster pack inside the VMAX Special Set – Eevee Heroes.

Sylveon VMAX and Leafeon VMAX from the set have not been revealed yet. Pokemon probably doesn’t want to spoil all of them right away.

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

    The artwork on Umbreon is fantastic. So glad Akira Egawa is continuing to contribute artwork for cards. I was already a huge fan with the Lucario V and especially Blaziken VMAX. Hope they can keep it up overtime.

    Oh my god...They are all busted.

    Flareon Vmax isn't even half bad, late game could be absolutely destructive with energy recycle.

    Vaporeon Vmax is damn good too, with any?? water pokemon, plus 3 energy attach from discard for a colourless. Then 200 dmg with a damage counter.

    I cant even believe Jolteon...2 ENERGY, and its straight up going pikarom, 100, 100, and post-rotation, this is gonna be devastating.

    AND NEARLY ALL ATTACKS ARE FREE with the elemental tool card...

    And those abilities on Glaceon, Espeon and Umbreon...its SOOO...disruptive. Umbreon is a free boss abiliy, Espeon disrupts attacks, and Glaceon makes it real awkward for Vmax decks post rotation...

    Thats not even the most disruptive part...the sun and moon tool card means bosses orders dont work .

    My conclusion is that Path to the Peak, and Tool Jammer are gonna be real real staples in every deck moving forward, because my god.

    Of the VMAX attacks, I think only Vaporeon VMAX's first attack is free with the tool. It only reduces the attack cost by 1 [C].

    omg snow leaf badge doesnt even let zacian take a free win..

    omg...bruh. post rotation is gonna be a minefield lol. the jump in IQ Im gonna need to even survive in this meta...compared to how brainless the current meta is, where games are all boss, boss game.

    The worst thing is, I barely keep up with the current meta and its many twist and turns. This meta is gonna school my ass for playing like checkers, when i should be playing like chess.

    Wait a second. Vaporeon V max doesn't specify basic pokemon on its first attack. Don't know how good it would be in standard or expanded but that is pretty neat.

    yeah, but that's still busted like a mf right? vaporeons first attack is free, then jolteon needs 1 energy to be pikarom-ing the field T2, and Flareon just needs energy attach T2.

    wait...now that im reading it...it says V, not Vmax. By Jolteon V, Vaporeon V, and Flareon V...do they mean the VMAX or nah? because then thats much less impressive.

    The official rulebook answers this question. Pokémon VMAX are Pokémon V. Here's the quote out of Appendix C:

    Appendix C: Pokémon VMAX

    Pokémon VMAX can take your Pokémon V to the next level! These massively powerful cards come with monstrous HP and attacks—suitable for these giant Pokémon! Most Pokémon VMAX have 300 or more HP, making them very difficult to take down in battle.

    But with great power comes great risk: if your Pokémon VMAX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 3 Prize cards.

    Notice that Lapras VMAX evolves from Lapras V. This means you can only evolve Lapras VMAX from Lapras V, not regular Lapras! Also, Pokémon VMAX are a new stage: VMAX. These cards count as Evolution cards, and all the normal rules for Evolution apply to Pokémon VMAX. And although Pokémon VMAX are a different stage, they are still considered Pokémon V—so if something affects Pokémon V, it also affects Pokémon VMAX.​

    I just realised that Vaporeon is a rapid strike...just when I thought it already had endless possibilities

    Umbreon being single strike means its damages can scale. Flareon is also single strike, so urn of vitality is another energy recyle option for it.

    Gonna tell my own opinion but not 100% sure that I'm the best at analize:

    Vaporeon line: Looks consistent, not too good, not too bad. I like the first attack of the Vmax.

    Jolteon line: free retreat as expected for both. the V is a bit bland, Vmax will probably be unplayable, 300hp and weak to fighting = 1 energy K.O from RS Urshifu.

    Flareon line: I don't think it looks really good. You need to discard 4 energies to One-shot Vmaxes (except Jolteon or weakness) and you might deck yourself out against Cheryl or 1 prizers. I think it looks like a worse Sandaconda based on the energy cost and the 3 prizes rule, with Sandaconda you can afford "dead" turns except against ADP, who is rotating.

    Unbreon line: Basically Lycanrock GX so that is good but I'm not a fan of its attacks. I can see it in Eternatus and the fact that they don't share the same weakness is nice.

    Espeon Line: Looks like an ok secondary attacker / support, but I think it doesn't look as usefull as Umbreon.

    Leafeon: I'm waiting for the Vmax before saying to much, but the basic having a good turn 1 ability is already a nice point.

    Glaceon Line: Now that we know the Vmax, "Ice Ascension" makes a lot more sense and becomes a really good attack to have a Vmax wall turn 1 if you play second. I really like the ability of Glaceon Vmax but it might hit a bit too low. Scary part is that it will be really weak to path to the peack. Weak to metal hurts but the tool is nice to help it.

    Sylveon: Same as Leafeon basically. I like the ribbon badge.

    the badges: I think most of them are playable, but the one for espeon/Umbreon looks a bit underwhelming

    Edit: Super sad that the badges specify "V" pokemon. Just to be sure that one prizers eveelution can't see any play in the future I guess...

    This is just showing that the PTCG just doesn't care a darn about power creep! o_O
    Wow... You got these cards that would have ruled/dominated/decimated formats and people are arguing about playability.

    I'm really hoping they drop this whole "everything has to be basic and a EX style card" back to the game beeing a bit slower and not just everything having tripple digits.

    I always kinda wanted to return to the game but then I see these boring gimmicks beeing still used over and over.
    Was the thing that made me quit tournament play and is what keeps me out.

    I say this all the time but come play variant formats with me. The cards outside of this big numbers paradigm are usually very well designed, so the format is pretty balanced going back to BW era and beyond.

    *

    Interesting wording there, "with Espeon V in it's name?" so obviously VMAX is included, but does this point to the V-Union mechanic?
