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 5 evolutions by renaming your Eevee to a specific name before you evolve it.
This only works once for each of the 5 evolution, and 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:
Evolving Vaporeon, Jolteon, 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
- 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.
