In short, 2014’s Eevee Friendly was 10 daily rotation battles using a team of 4 Kalos-born ‘Eeveelutions’. The Junior and Masters competitions were held for 3 days, roughly around 7/10 to 7/13. This was a very short tournament, I personally only played 2 of the 3 days by accident.

These percentages could help you train the best ‘Eeveelution’ possible! Hit the jump take a look at the results!
