GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

10/10 The First: Eevee (Jungle #51)

Pokemon illustrators started off strong with the first Eevee card drawn by Kagemaru Himeno that featured in the original Jungle set. This card shows an Eevee leaping through the air, trying to catch the butterflies floating above. The bright colors of this card are one of its best features, as purple, orange, and green complement Eevee’s brown fur.

This card is missing a few details, such as the tuft of off-white fur at the end of Eevee’s tail, as Pokemon was still figuring out the finer details of Eevee’s design. Nonetheless, this map is one of the most memorable to date.

This Eevee card from Sword & Shield Promos is as radiant as its name suggests. Illustrated by Souichirou Gunjima, this card features a cheerful Eevee running through a mine filled with gems. The most notable thing about this card is that it shows off the shiny version of Eevee, with her shiny design matching her sparkling surroundings.

Shiny Eevee’s silver color scheme complements the colorful stalactites that grow from the ceiling of the cave. Even the outside of the card has a rainbow background, reflecting the colors shown in the main illustration.

8/10 Forest Friends: Eevee (Ultra Prism #105)

Unlike many other Eevee cards, which tend to feature a singular Eevee, Hideki Ishikawa’s rendition of this cute Pokémon focuses on three Eevee in the forest. The illustration shows the Eevee stumbling over a stream on their travels.

7/10 Wander through the flowers: Eevee (Sun & Moon #101a)

Saya Tsuruta took a stylized approach in her take on Eevee, favoring a hand-drawn finish that emphasizes her dreamlike aesthetic. In this card, Eevee smiles as she walks through a blooming field of flowers, leaving a trail of petals in her wake.

The environment in this map is colorful, thanks to the different shades used for the flowers and the blue sky above, giving the scene an overall happy feel reminiscent of Floaroma Meadow in Sinnoh. Tucked among the flowers is even a hidden Poke Ball that you might have missed at first glance.

This card captures Eevee’s feline features as she plays with a ball of yarn that has fallen from the knitting basket. The owner of this Pokemon is definitely an Eevee fan, as they have a small plush version of Eevee displayed in the background.

5/10 Perfect nap spot: Eevee (Astral Radiance #119)

This sweet Eevee card, illustrated by Sowsow, is part of the Astral Radiance set and shows Eevee resting on the forest floor. Eevee is particularly valuable because it has one ear cocked to the side and is curled up like a cat with its tail tucked in.

Illustrated by Tika Matsuno, this Eevee card is part of the Sword & Shield Promos. The artwork on this card depicts a sleeping Eevee lying on a garden bench, having just woken up from a nap. The soft color palette used by Matsuno perfectly captures this idyllic scene as sunlight streaks across peaceful Eevee.
