It’s been a year of figurines, but we’re sadly coming to the end. Funko and The Pokemon Company’s new “An Afternoon With Eevee & Friends” has saved the best one for last: Umbreon, the Dark-type Eevolution.
For those unaware, Funko announced their latest line of figurines last February with the release of the first Eevee, which was actually two Eevees frolicking in a field. That was soon followed up with Sylveon, the Fairy-type Eevolution, then Glaceon, the Ice-type Eevolution. Then we had Flareon, Jolteon, Leafeon, Espeon, Vaporeon, and now finally, Umbreon.
Honestly, I couldn’t tell you why Umbreon is the most popular of the Eevolutions. Maybe it’s that bad-boy personality, or maybe it’s the dark and mysterious aesthetic. Or maybe it’s the ability to sweat poison from its pores and spray it like a skunk. Whatever the reason, Pokemon fans love Umbreon despite the fact it’s outclassed by many other Dark-type tanks.
Like all the other figures from Funko’s “An Afternoon With Eevee & Friends” line, Umbreon is made of vinyl and exclusively available for US customers of the Pokemon Center’s online store. Umbreon goes on sale starting October 13th at 9 AM PST (12 PM EST) and will be priced at $14.99. Supplies are limited and they’re expected to sell out fast, so better smash the refresh button on your browser when October 13th rolls around.
