Stored Power Build Explanation

This build is centered on bursting down targets from the backlines using Stored Power and Psybeam.

  • Wise Glasses provides Espeon with a large amount Sp. Atk. thanks to its percentage bonus.
  • Choice Specs gives Espeon more Sp. Atk. stat and increases the Pokemon's minimum move damage.
  • Slick Spoon allows Espeon to ignore a portion of its target's Sp. Def., especially against high-durability Pokemon. It also supplies HP and more Sp. Atk.
  • Energy Amplifier is great replacement for Slick Spoon, giving Espeon more firepower when it activates Psychic Solare.
  • Eject Button gives Espeon a repositioning tool to set up its moves or to keep its distance from enemies.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for more damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reduction. This can be achieved by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Green and Black.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. to maximize Espeon's damage output.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on bursting down targets with Stored Power and Psybeam, equipping items that provide the highest passive damage boost is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Wise Glasses, Choice Specs, and Slick Spoon will be the best for the build. The item combination produced the best results that doesn't require any further tasks like stacking or activating a move to maximize damage.

As for alternatives, replacing Slick Spoon with Energy Amplifier would be the ideal choice. The item combination produced the second best results but is only marginally lower than the top result. However, it does require Espeon to use Psychic Solare first to trigger the damage boost.

These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

Note:
The numbers in bold are the highest result for a specific test.

Espeon Best Items & Moveset

Best Held Items

Item Explanation
Energy Amplifier.pngEnergy Amplifier The blast from Psychic Solare is affected by the damage increase Energy Amplifier provides. This makes the move act like a finisher.
Wise Glasses.pngWise Glasses Wise Glasses further increases Espeon's already high Sp. Attack stat. This allows the Pokemon to deal extra damage when it uses its moves.
Choice Specs.pngChoice Specs Choice Specs adds bonus damage as you land your moves. It also adds a decent amount of Sp. Attack stat.
Slick Spoon.pngSlick Spoon Slick Spoon improves Espeon's burst damage by ignoring a portion of its target's Sp. Def. stat, especially against high durability Pokemon. It also provides increased Sp. Atk. and HP, which are essential to the Pokemon.

List of Held Items

Best Battle Items

Item Explanation
Eject Button.pngEject Button Eject Button is primarily used to reposition when Espeon gets overwhelmed. It is also helpful for chasing down fleeing targets.
X Speed.pngX Speed X Speed offers a more consistent way of increasing Espeon's movement speed. This compensates for Espeon's lack of mobility moves.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Stored Power ImageStored Power Stored Power gives Espeon damage and a debuff tool. It also gives some mobility.
Psybeam ImagePsybeam Because the damage scales with the target's HP, Psybeam is you go-to move for facing high HP opponents. It is especially useful for securing objectives.

This moveset is more effective in the meta in terms of damage and utility. Stored Power can deal damage to multiple targets or on a single target. It also increases Espeon's movement speed for a short duration when it's used, giving the Pokemon some mobility to work with during fights. Psybeam deals a ton of damage to a single target but can split towards nearby targets, which will deal more damage to targets that are stunned or slowed.

How to Play Espeon

Jump to Section

Watch the Boosted Attack Gauge

Espeon's boosted attack works differently than other Pokemon. It has a gauge that fills up over time rather than triggering for every certain numbers of attacks. Keep a close watch on your boosted attack gauge before engaging.

Watch Out for High Mobility Pokemon

Espeon's weakness are high-mobility Pokemon like Gengar since they can easily dodge Espeon's moves and can burst it down quickly. Watch out for these Pokemon during fights as they'll surely target you first.

Keep a Safe Distance

Utilize Espeon's long-ranged moves to deal damage and provide disables for your team from a safe distance. You can also stay behind durable teammates like Snorlax, letting them take the frontlines and attract the enemies' attention while you bombard them with your moves.

Get Aggressive Once You Get Pyschic Solare

Espeon can learn its Unite Move earlier than most, at level 8. Utilize your early Unite Move by roaming the map and taking teamfights. Your team will most likely have the advantage during teamfights since the enemy probably won't have their Unite Move yet.

Psychic Solare: Espeon Move Effect and Cooldown

Attack Targets Marked with Future Sight

You can reduce Future Sight's cooldown each time you attack a target marked with it. Utilize this mechanic to (potentially) cast Future Sight infinitely.

Pokemon UNITE - Psychic Solare Setup
This is a simple setup to Psychic Solare. Start by stunning enemies using Psyshock, then immediately following up with Psybeam. Finish off the combo with Psychic Solare. You can also use Eject Button to move closer before using your Unite Move.

Stored Power Finisher

This is a finisher combo that utilizes Stored Power's missing HP bonus damage effect. Start by chipping away a portion of a target's HP using Psybeam. Get closer to your target then use Psychic Solare. Finish off your target using fully charged Stored Power. You can follow up with standard attacks if the target isn't defeated yet after the combo. You can also perform standard attacks to deplete the target's HP as low as possible before finishing them off.

This is a single-target combo with the potential to be infinitely used. First, mark a target with Future Sight, then immediately follow up with a fully-charged Stored Power, reducing Future Sight's cooldown drastically. Unleash a couple of attacks, preferably at least one boosted attack to gain one charge of Stored Power, then mark the target again with Future Sight as soon as it's available. Attack again at least twice, then finish off your target with Stored Power (fully-charged or not). This combo is best performed when both moves are upgraded.

Hard Counter with High Mobility and Burst

Although Espeon can deal high burst damage, its lack of mobility and low durability is its biggest weakness. Pokemon that can quickly dive targets and burst it down or have immunity-granting moves are the best Pokemon to use against Espeon.

Best Counters

Pokemon Explanation
Talonflame ImageTalonflame Rating: ★★★★★
• Has high burst damage mobility moves.
• Can completely dodge Espeon's moves using Fly.
• Can dive directly towards Espeon using Brave Bird or Fly.
• Isolate Espeon using Flame Sweep.

Even Matchups for Espeon

Hitting opponents with Espeon's moves is the only way for the Pokemon to get the upper hand against these Pokemon due to its low attack damage, durability, and mobility.

Strike First

Ranged, Fragile Pokemon with High Damage
Alolan Ninetales Image Chandelure Image Cinderace Image Cramorant Image Decidueye Image Delphox Image Gardevoir Image Glaceon Image Inteleon Image Mew Image Miraidon Image Pikachu Image Sylveon Image Venusaur Image
How to Beat
• Much like Espeon, these Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can be dangerous for Espeon. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Espeon fast. Winning against them is all a matter of striking first.
• When using Psyshock, utilize the move's long range to stun and burst them down with the help of Future Sight to ensure a knockout.
• When using Stored Power, mark them first with Future Sight so all of Stored Power's projectiles hit them, then just get in range for the move to hit them but be sure to fall back immediate as not to give them a chance to retaliate.
• As a last resort, use Psychic Solare when they get close to prevent them from attacking or finish them off.

Kite Them

All-Rounders
Aegislash Image Blaziken Image Buzzwole Image Metagross Image Mimikyu Image Scizor Image Tsareena Image Zacian Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or combos to deal damage. They are also durable enough to tank Espeon's damage. However, they're melee and can easily get kited by Espeon.
• When using Psyshock, utilize the move's long range to stun and deplete their HP with the help of Future Sight.
• When using Stored Power, mark them first with Future Sight so all of Stored Power's projectiles hit them, then just get in range for the move to hit them.
• Make sure to still keep a safe distance from them as not to give them a chance to get close to Espeon.
• As a last resort, use Psychic Solare when they get close to prevent them from attacking or finish them off.

Use Psychic Solare

High-mobility Pokemon with Burst Damage
Absol Image Dodrio Image Gengar Image Leafeon Image Meowscarada Image Talonflame Image Zeraora Image Zoroark Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are incredibly agile and deal high burst damage. However, they do need to come close to Espeon first to burst it down, making them susceptible to getting disabled by Psychic Solare.
• Once they get close, immediately use Psychic Solare to stop their assault, then quickly follow up with Psyshock or Stored Power to finish them off or force them to retreat.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon
Crustle Image Goodra Image Greedent Image Lapras Image Mamoswine Image Slowbro Image Snorlax Image Trevenant Image Umbreon Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it difficult for Espeon to take them down alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Espeon.
• Use Psyshock or Stored Power with Future Sight or Psybeam to quickly deplete their HP and help allies bring them down.

Easy Matchups for Espeon

For easy matchups, take advantage of Espeon's hard-hitting moves to either pressure the opposing Pokemon's HP or simply lock them down with slows and stuns.

How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone. Although they themselves pose no threat to Espeon, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights.
• It's best to take them out first to remove their team's support by using Psyshock or Stored Power with Future Sight or Psybeam and Psychic Solare to quickly burst them down or force them to retreat.

Best Teammates for Espeon

Pokemon Explanation
Blissey ImageBlissey Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Hoopa ImageHoopa Provides Healing, Shielding, and Buffs
Pokemon that provide healing, shielding, and buffs are the perfect teammates for Espeon as they can compensate for its lack of defenses. They also decrease the likelihood that Espeon will get bursted down by Speedsters.
Sylveon ImageSylveon Blastoise ImageBlastoise Gengar ImageGengar Special Attack Powerhouse
Pairing at least one of these Pokemon with Espeon allows you to dominate games with high Special Attack damage. This is especially useful when matched against Attackers or All-Rounders that have low Special Defense stat.
Machamp ImageMachamp Snorlax ImageSnorlax Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Can Set Up Espeon's Moves
These Pokemon have great disables that can allow Espeon to land its moves and deal damage. They can also protect Espeon as they stave off opponents at frontlines and tank the damage.

Upgrade: Deals additional damage to opposing Pokemon that are unable to act. If Psybeam then splits beyond its initial target, its split rays will also deal additional damage to opposing Pokemon they hit and leave unable to act.

Has the user lock on to an opposing Pokemon, then deal damage a few seconds later to opposing Pokemon in an are of effect centered on the locked-on Pokemon. More damage is dealt the lower the locked-on Pokemon's remaining HP is. While the user is locked on to an opposing Pokemon, its other moves will target that Pokemon whenever possible. Each time one of these moves deals damage, Future Sight's cooldown is reduced. If the locked-on Pokemon is on the opposing team and is knocked out before the area-of-effect damage is dealt, a single powered-up use of Psyshock or Stored Power becomes available for a short time. When Psyshock is powered up, it hurls stronger psychic projectiles at a designated location that also cause an explosion, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect. When Stored Power is powered up, it unleashes an increased number of psychic power blasts and restores the user's HP when the blasts hit.
Upgrade: The user deals increased damage to the opposing Pokemon that Espeon's Future Sight is locked on to.

in my opinion espeon is unfortunately the most GARBAGE attacker I have ever played. it dies all the time, has NO mobility, even with float stone x speed, and it has an abysmal win rate. ever since I bought it, I regrated purchasing it with real money. so DO NOT buy espeon.

Because espeon is the goat
