''That Eevee is the only Pokemon that is given to you by an NPC in all four generations'' its false! Lapras is given to you by a npc in fire red and leaf green. right after you beat your rival in the silph co. rocket hideout, a guy give you a lapras. and, in ruby, saphirre and emerald, after you beat the team rocket, a scientist give you a castform
