What's with this fandom's obsession with Umbreon

People are attracted to Pokemon based on their looks, not their stats.

Tis why everyone complains about how ugly newer Pokemon are/can be. Tis also why people usually buy the versions with the cooler looking legendary mascots.

That said, Umbreon is the coolest looking eevee form, hands down. If people stopped going into "metagame" logic and applying it to the appeal of Pokemon in general, there'd be a lot more understanding going on.

Espeon is the coolest, but this mostly covers it.

I think all the Eeveelutions get way too much love personally, except for maybe Flareon and Leafeon.

But an ugly pokemon stays ugly forever. The metagame can change, though - nobody would use Politoed in gen 4 competitively, but gen 5 changed that.

Umbreon, while outclassed, is viable. Swadloon, however..

I don't know how people found my post offensive. Just explaining reality. People like looks over stats. Didn't call for some smart ass remark about using swadloons or how ugly is forever.
