Pokemon Go: Eevee Evolution Guide


Want to know how to evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon or Sylveon? In this guide we’ll cover the best methods of evolving this adorable furry critter into a battle-winning machine. There’s one trick you can use to guarantee Eevee’s evolution outcome, once for each form. Without doing this trick you’ll either have to rely on random luck or using the buddy system to try and get the evolution you want.

Eevee Name Trick

The easiest way to guarantee what form your Eevee will evolve into is by changing its name to a specific one. So for example, if you wanted Flareon you’d rename your Eevee to “Pyro“. This only works once per form so at most you can only obtain one of every form this way. You’ll know it has worked when you see the form you’re after appear as a silhouette on the evolve button.
