After making the two Eeveelutions available online from WolfDreamer's Umbreon I decided I wanted one of my own. With that said, I made my Vaporeon and WolfDreamer has given me permission to link to her pattern. The head, body and legs are the same as for Umbreon, please go to the above link to see the instructions and her many other awesome Pokemon amigurumi patterns on her blog. The rest of the details can be found here.
Collar (make 2, one in white, the other the same blue as the body)

Row 4: Sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat across, ch 1, turn (70 sc)
Fasten off and sew ends together, forming a circle.
With wrong sides facing each other, sew rows 1 and 4 of each collar piece together. Weave in remaining ends.
Sew to head in desired position. (Note: The Umbreon pattern mentions paying attention to the nose area when stuffing the head. Please disregard these instructions, as the nose on Vaporeon will be in a different position.)
