Strategy Using Espeon

Espeon, the pure Psychic pokemon with higher speed, special attack and decent Special defense. However, its movepool is limited and really doesn't learn anything other than HP and Psychic that would be of use, offensive-wise.
This moveset works well with the aforementioned stats and most moves support each other.
Sunny day, is obviously, a very helpful move which will work well along side HP Fire. In turn, HP Fire takes care of any steel types that are used.
Psychic is an obvious choice for a Pokemon like this, which will deal a lot of damage due to its boost in STAB. This is also a reason why HP Fire is useful, Psychic will do little damage to steel types so it comes in handy here too.
Morning sun regains the HP lost from prolonged battles and also benefits from Sunny day. With alright special defense, it should take at least one special hit that isn't super effective against it.
However, Espeon's poor defense leaves it open for Shadow ball's, bug type moves such as Silver wind/Megahorn/Signal beam to defeat it. So watch out for a few of those moves, because Espeon will probably not survive against them.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in HP & Speed for Espeon with any remaining in Special Attack
