Eevee, a Normal-type Pokémon from the Kanto region, is adorable for sure, but what’s important is it is a generic marvel. In fact, it is the only known Pokemon in the game that has the ability to evolve into eight distinct forms. Each evolution — known as Eeveelution — will allow you to evolve Eevee into a new Pokemon with a different elemental type.

In this article, I’ll guide you through unlocking Eevee’s full evolutionary potential in Pokémon Go and catching all distinct Eeveelutions.

Part 1. Introduction of Eevee Evolution

You’ll encounter Eevee in its adorable base form, having brown fur and a bushy tail. Given its adaptability and affinity to human environments,  Eevee relatively spawn in urban areas, parks, and residential neighborhoods worldwide.

It’s commonly found! However, the real excitement begins when you harness Eevee’s unique evolutionary potential. Given you can choose which Eeveelutions you want to obtain! You just need to rename the Eevee to the name required for the specific evolution type, and then evolve it.

Yes, unlike some Pokemon’s, you do not have to evolve Eevee sequentially. Instead you can directly target the specific Eeveelution that suits your team and strategy.

In the following sections, we’ll delve into the specific methods for achieving each Eeveelution and how to maximize your chances of obtaining the perfect team of Eevee’s evolved forms.

Part 2: How to Evolve an Eevee into All Eeveelutions

Sylveon, the enchanting Fairy-type Eeveelution, is known for its elegant ribbons and playful demeanor. As shown in the table above, you have two paths to acquire this graceful Pokémon:

Plan A: Nickname Trick: A one-time method, simply rename your Eevee “Kira” (an anime reference) and evolve it using 25 Eevee Candies. This is a handy shortcut, especially if you’re just starting your Eeveelution collection.

Important note: Nickname trick works only once per evolution type. Ensure you select Eevees with the highest CP values before evolving them into your desired type.

Plan B: Buddy Adventure: For subsequent Sylveons, you’ll need to strengthen your bond with Eevee. So, make it your Buddy Pokémon and earn 70 hearts through activities like walking, feeding, and playing together. Once you reach the “Best Buddy” status, Sylveon’s silhouette will appear next to the evolve button, and indicate that it is ready to transform.

Next up is Glaceon, the Ice-type Eeveelution, emanating an aura of chilly elegance with its crystalline fur and flowing mane. Similar to Sylveon, you can evolve Eevee into Glaceon using either a nickname trick or a special Lure Module:

Plan A: Nickname Trick: Rename your chosen Eevee “Rea” (another anime reference) and evolve it using 25 Eevee Candies for a one-time guaranteed Glaceon.

Plan B: Glacial Lure Module: For subsequent evolutions, head to a PokéStop and insert a Glacial Lure Module into the empty slot. Once activated, the PokéStop will attract Ice-type Pokémon and create a frosty aura. Ensure to evolve your Eevee within the radius of this lure, and it will transform into the icy Glaceon. Note that, you can purchase the Glacial Lure Modules in the in-game shop for 200 PokéCoins.

Wielding the power of nature itself, Leafeon is the Grass-type Eeveelution. Just like its icy counterpart Glaceon, there are two distinct methods to evolve Eevee into this formidable Grass-type:

Plan A: Nickname Trick: To secure your first Leafeon, simply rename your chosen Eevee “Linnea” and evolve it using 25 Eevee Candies. Once again, this is only a one-time trick to guarantee successful transformation.

Plan B: Mossy Lure Module: For subsequent Leafeons, you will have to harness the power of nature itself with a Mossy Lure Module. For this, head to a PokéStop and activate the module, transforming the surrounding area into a lush, green haven that attracts Grass-type Pokémon. Then, evolve your Eevee within the radius of the Mossy Lure, and it will evolve into the graceful and powerful Leafeon. Like the Glacial Lure, the Mossy Lure Module is available in the in-game shop for 200 PokéCoins.

umbreon | eevee evolutions pokemon go

The sleek and mysterious Dark-type Eeveelution, Umbreon is one of the best choices when it comes to stealthier battles. Here’s how to add this nocturnal creature to your team:

Plan A: Nickname Trick: Like the previous Eeveelutions, you can secure your first Umbreon by renaming your Eevee “Tamao” and evolving it with 25 Eevee Candies.

Plan B: Buddy Evolution (Nighttime): For subsequent Umbreons, the evolution process takes a slightly different turn. First, you will have to choose an Eevee to be your Buddy Pokémon and embark on a 10km walk together. Once you’ve covered the distance, evolve your Eevee at night (please make sure the in-game environment is dark!), and it will transform into the shadowy Umbreon.

The Psychic-type Eeveelution. Here’s how you can evolve Eevee into Espeon:

strong>Plan A: Nickname Trick: Like its counterpart Umbreon, you can secure your first Espeon by renaming your Eevee “Sakura” and evolving it with 25 Eevee Candies.

Plan B: Buddy Evolution (Daytime): For additional Espeons, you will have to strengthen your bond with Eevee by making it your Buddy Pokémon and taking a 10km walk together. However, unlike Umbreon’s nocturnal evolution, Espeon requires daytime to blossom. So, once you’ve reached your walking goal, evolve your Eevee during the daytime (when the in-game environment is bright), and it will transform into the radiant Espeon.

The Fire-type Eeveelution, obtaining Flareon involves a bit more chance and a tough luck —  environmental triggers as seen with the above Eeveelutions will not work.

Plan A: Nickname Trick: To guarantee your first Flareon, rename your chosen Eevee “Pyro” before evolving it with 25 Eevee Candies — like the above ones.

Plan B: Random Evolution: After using the nickname trick, evolving Eevee into Flareon becomes a game of chance. Each time you evolve an Eevee without a nickname, there’s a roughly 33% probability it will transform into Flareon. This means you might need to evolve multiple Eevee before getting lucky and witnessing the emergence of this fiery fox Pokémon.

Remember when I mentioned the 33% chance of evolving Eevee into Flareon? Well, Jolteon shares that same probability! If you evolve Eevee without a nickname or special lure, there’s an equal chance it will transform into either Flareon or Jolteon, making them the most unpredictable of the Eeveelutions.

Of course, there’s a way to guarantee your first Jolteon. Simply rename your chosen Eevee “Sparky” before evolving it with 25 Eevee Candies.

Electric-type Eeveelution, Jolteon like Flareon involves a sense of randomness. Remember, when I said above there is a 33% chance of evolving it into Flareon, well, the other 33% chance comes to Jolteon.

Completing the trio of random-evolution Eeveelutions is Vaporeon, the elegant and powerful Water-type. Just like Jolteon and Flareon, evolving Eevee into Vaporeon comes down to a guaranteed nickname trick or a 33% chance with each random evolution:

When it comes to the nickname trick — simply rename your chosen Eevee “Rainer” and evolve it with 25 Eevee Candies.

Part 3. How to Get More Eevee Candies for Evolution?

While the nickname trick guarantees your first catch of Eeveelution, obtaining multiple, as discussed, will require a stockpile of Eevee Candy, and fulfilling specific conditions. Of course, your real-life adventures to do all these can be time-consuming. However, if you are desperate, you can use a location spoofer like iWhere iPhone Location Changer to virtually walk and accelerate your chances of both finding Eevee and also the resources for successful Eeveelutions.
