How to Evolve Eevee
There are certain tricks that you can use to guarantee specific evolutions when evolving Eevee:
It is possible to force your Eevee to evolve into one of the 7 evolutions by renaming your Eevee to a specific name before you evolve it.
This only works once for each of the 7 evolutions, you don't need to have walked with Eevee as your buddy, and the time of day doesn't matter.
Use the following names to guarantee the evolved form:
- Rainer → Vaporeon
- Sparky → Jolteon
- Pyro → Flareon
- Sakura → Espeon
- Tamao → Umbreon
- Linnea → Leafeon
- Rea → Glaceon
Evolving Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon
Once you have used the naming trick for these three Pokémon, a normal evolution on Eevee will have an equal random chance of getting Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon.
If you have walked over 10km with Eevee as your buddy, and you don't want to get Espeon or Umbreon, make sure that Eevee isn't your buddy when evolving it!
Buddy method for Espeon and Umbreon
This method is only used for getting the Generation 2 Pokémon: Espeon and Umbreon.
- You must have walked at least 10km with the Pokémon as your buddy, and have collected at least 2 candy.
- The Pokémon must be your buddy when you evolve it.
You can then choose between Espeon and Umbreon depending on whether you evolve your Eevee during the day or at night.
Lure method for Leafeon and Glaceon
In order to evolve Eevee into the Generation 3 Pokémon Leafeon and Glaceon, you need to use one of the new Lure items: the Mossy Lure or the Glacial Lure.
Approach a Pokéstop, and apply the lure to the stop:
Ensure that you are within the radius of the Pokéstop (make sure you can spin it), and find the Eevee that you wish to evolve. Make sure that the evolve button contains
