Further Information:

  • Taiyo is a companion Pokémon, which means, that he rarely takes part in battles or contests, but he is always at his trainer’s side and they have a deep bond between each other

  • He is the only Espeon known with those special base stats

  • He has a very unique and special coloration: He is a golden Pokémon. Golden Pokémon are extremely rare, even rarer than shiny Pokémon, only a very small number of golden Pokémon have been found for hundreds of years now! Golden Pokémon are also known to be the “shiniest of the shiny Pokémon” and just like shiny Pokémon do they sparkle in certain occasions, but in very bright golden and yellow colours with a loud and unique sparkling sound

  • Taiyo is named after the Japanese word “Taiyō” (太陽), which means “sun”. Taiyo is also a kind of sunflower

  • The red gem with the dark red dot in its middle and its orange marking look like the alchemic symbol for gold and the sun

  • Before evolution he was an Eevee with golden colours instead of the usual brown or grey colours

  • He was raised by his parents in the wild of Alola until he and his family were found by Alexi and some of her Pokémon including Titania, Oberon and Marigold, which were searching for other golden Pokémon. He and Marigold immediately fell in love with each other and eventually, Taiyo and his family were adopted by Alexi. From that day on, Alexi is their trainer and they all live happily with her and her Pokémon in the Kalos and sometimes in the Alola Region, as the case may be

  • He has an entirely vegetarian diet, just like his parents, trainer and the other Espeons, which means no other Pokémon will be consumed including Grass type Pokémon!

  • His signature colour is gold, but orange and yellow can also be numbered among it
