    $\begingroup$ Ha! I shared this riddle to many people in this Halloween's party, and only few people got it. I gave some hints, though. $\endgroup$ – Dannyu NDos Oct 31 at 13:12

You are

the evolutions of Eevee from the Pokémon franchise

and you sleep where

your type trumps the environment according to the Type matchups of the video games.


Our 1st member likes to sleep near fireplace.

Vaporeon, because Water beats Fire

Our 2nd member likes to sleep after a drink of water.

Jolteon, because Electric beats Water

Our 3rd member likes to sleep on a steel bed.

Flareon, because Fire beats Steel

Our 4th member likes to sleep after exercising.

Espeon, because Psychic beats Fighting

Our 5th member likes to sleep with a ghost.

Umbreon, because Dark beats Ghost

Our 6th member likes to sleep on the ground.

Leafeon, because Grass beats Ground

Our 7th member likes to sleep with a dragon.

Glaceon, because Ice beats Dragon

Our 8th member likes to sleep in complete darkness.

Sylveon, because Fairy beats Dark

Hint:

All Eeveelutions resemble a furry mammal to at least some degree.

It sounds like:

Pokemons: fire, water, steel, fight, ghost, ground, dragon, dark.
I was puzzled by "sleep with". But after seeing "sleep with a dragon", the only way it makes sense is:
"We" are the eight Gym Leaders!

... although in none of the Pokemon games the eight Gym Leaders form that combination.

also:

foxes, dogs, cats, rabbits might all refer to Pikachu (because in the old GB times it was difficult to tell exactly which animal it was), or there are different Pokemons who originate from these animals. Not quite the Gym Leaders, though.

However, this answer is not relevant to Halloween's party...

  • $\begingroup$ That's what I thought, too, but I realized (as you did) that no combination fit the implied rot13(glcrf gung rnpu genvare jbhyq fcrpvnyvmr va). $\endgroup$ – CGreen Oct 31 at 20:26
