[WARNING: It's big!]
Between the drawing and just the description, this took FOREVER!! At LEAST five times as long as the original version! And that is why this one is a scrap.
And looking at the comments, it gives me hope that the other one is as popular as it is because people like my ideas, not my portrayals of the original pokemon.
By the way, I am SO PROUD of this! I love how it turned out! I especially am happy with how Eevee, Flareon, Vaporeon, Terreon, Mercureon, Kocheon, Obliveon, and Beryleon came out. Which is...a lot of them. But! I say that because I don't dislike how the others came out! My MOST favourite drawing has to be Terreon or Obliveon.
And as a side note....no, I don't know Japanese. So I tried my best. I did better than lat time though (I think)!
EEVEE - Japanese name: Ibui ("Eievui")
The Evolution PokemonTYPE: Normal
INFO: Eevee has an unstable genetic makeup that suddenly mutates due to the environment in which it lives. Radiation from various stones causes this Pokémon to evolve. (Ruby/Sapphire)
ORGIN: Eevee's name is a pronunciation of E-V, the first two letters in the word Evolution. Eevee was originally going to be called "Eon," the suffix of all the evolutions of Eevee, which probably is a shortening of "evolution". Eon also means a very long time, which is how long it takes for Eevee to evolve without the aid of an evolutionary stone.
FLAREON - Japanese name: Busuta ("Booster")
The Flame PokemonTYPE: Fire
EVOLUTION: Fire Stone
INFO: Flareon's fluffy fur has a functional purpose - it releases heat into the air so that its body does not get excessively hot. This Pokémon's body temperature can rise to a maximum of 1,650 degrees F.
ORGIN: It has traits of foxes, dogs, rabbits, and cats. Flareon's name is derived from flare. Eon is Eevee's proto-type name, in which Flareon evolves from. Its Japanese name may refer to rocket boosters, which propel things by combustion of fuel.
JOLTEON - Japanese name: Sandasu ("Thunders")
The Lightning PokemonTYPE: Electric
EVOLUTION: Thunder Stone
INFO: Jolteon's cells generate a low level of electricity. This power is amplified by the static electricity of its fur, enabling the Pokémon to drop thunderbolts. The bristling fur is made of electrically charged needles.
ORGIN:It has traits of foxes, porcupines, dogs, and cats. Jolteon's name is a corruption of jolt. Its Japanese name is a corruption of thunder. Eon was Eevee's proto-type name, which Jolteon evolves from.

The Sun PokemonTYPE: Psychic

INFO: Espeon is extremely loyal to any trainer it considers to be worthy. It is said that this Pokémon developed its precognitive powers to protect its trainer from harm.
ORGIN: It appears to be based on legend of the nekomata, also known as bake-neko. Nekomata are mysterious two-tailed goblin cats. Espeon's name is derived from ESP, or extra-sensory perception, a branch of psychic abilities. -eon is the suffix common to all of Eevee's evolutions. Espeon's Japanese name is probably derived from the fact that its forked tail looks similar to a capital letter "F".
UMBREON - Japanese name: Burakki ("Blacky")
The Moonlight PokemonTYPE: Dark

INFO: Umbreon evolved as a result of exposure to the moon's waves. It hides silently in darkness and waits for its foes to make a move. The rings on its body glow when it leaps to attack.

The Fresh Snow PokemonTYPE: Ice
EVOLUTION: Level up on route 217

[EDIT: Kocheon looks more...dog-ish now. And better, in my opinion. ^^]
[EDIT 2: I fixed the Umbreon typo finally! It only took 5 years!
