Us Pokémon Go Eevee Evolution guide goes into every detail you need to know about these ‘mons. Ultimately, to answer your potential question, yes, there is a reliable method to evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, or Sylveon and it works every time.

If you’re a big fan of the location-based monster collector, we highly recommend checking out our other guides, including Pokémon Go promo codes, Pokémon Go event, Pokémon Go raids, and Pokémon Go community days. In the meantime, though, let’s check out our Pokémon Go Eevee evolution guide.

How do I perform a Pokémon Go Eevee evolution with a nickname?

Eevee has eight different forms of evolution, including Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon. After obtaining 25 candies, you can randomly evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon.

But how do you take out the random element and instead force Eevee to take on each of its individual forms? Well, it’s a simple process to change Eevee’s name before evolving them.

It’s worth noting that this method only allows you to get each different evolution of Eevee once. Once you run it on your account, you won’t be able to get that particular form of Eevee back on that account using this method.

Here are the different names you’ll need to use to get each different Pokémon Go Eevee evolution:

  • vaporeon: regener
  • Jolteon: Sparky
  • flareon: fire
  • Espeon: Sakura
  • Umbreon: tamao
  • Sheet: Linnea
  • Glaceon: Rea
  • Sylveon: Kira

Make sure the silhouette of the evolution you want appears on the evolve button or the nickname trick won’t work.

How do I evolve Eevee from Pokémon Go to Vaporeon, Flareon, or Jolteon?

Unfortunately, after using the nickname method for the first time, evolving from Eevee to Vaporeon, Flareon, or Jolteon is random. You can evolve Eevee into any of the above evolutions by using 25 candies.

How do I evolve Eevee from Pokémon Go to Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, or Sylveon?

While the above method is the easiest way to get every Eevee evolution in Pokémon Go, there are actually a number of alternative methods for a few specific evolutions.

Here’s an overview of how they work:

  • Pokemon Go Espeon: while Eevee is your buddy, walk 10km and evolve it throughout the day. It’s worth noting that Eevee should remain your buddy as you evolve it
  • Pokémon Go – Umbreon: while Eevee is your buddy, walk 10 km and evolve it at night. It’s worth noting that Eevee should remain your buddy as you evolve it
  • Pokemon Go Leafeon: use a mossy lure while evolving Eevee
  • Pokémon Go Glaceon: use an ice lure while evolving Eevee
  • Pokemon Go Sylveon: earn 75 hearts with Sylveon as your buddy. It’s worth noting that Eevee should remain your buddy as you evolve it
