How to choose the evolution of Eevee in Pokémon GO

If we cannot give our fire stone to get Flareon or our water stone to get Vaporeon or any other evolution, how do we do it in Pokémon GO that we do not have these objects? Well, it is easier than it seems, attentive or attentive that we tell you.

What is Eevee and why is it such an interesting pokémon?

Eevee is a normal type pokémon, that already appeared in the first generation, back in 1996. That is, it has accompanied us in all the Pokémon games of video consoles and, now, on mobile with Pokémon GO. In addition, it is already the protagonist of its own game: Pokémon Let´ s Go Eevee! It resembles a small fox in size and shape and bears great similarity to a Pomeranian dog.

Its value or the interest it arouses in many players is that it is the character with the most evolutions. In fact, it is the origin of its name since Eevee comes from the English word evolution, although at first it was thought to call him Eon. This is, on the other hand, the “suffix” that is added to all its evolutions. As a curiosity, in French the name was changed to «Evoli».

Currently, it is possible to make it go from its initial state to 8 different ones, each one of a specific special type: electric, water, fire, psychic, leaf, sinister, magical and ice. At that moment he changes his name, as is usual in these characters, and is renamed Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Umbreon, Espeon, Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon.

Choose the evolution of Eevee in Pokémon GO

Eevee is one of the few Pokémon that has so many evolutions. Depending on what you do, it will evolve to one or the other and unlike console games – where it is done by giving it certain objects – in Pokémon GO it is done with names. Yes, depending on the name it has, it will evolve a Pokémon or another, these are the names you have to put to achieve each evolution:

  • Sparky will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Jolteon, the electric Pokémon.
  • Rainer will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Vaporeon, the water Pokémon.
  • Pyro will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Flareon, the fire Pokémon.
  • Sakura will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Espeon, the psychic Pokémon.
  • Size will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Umbreon, the sinister Pokémon.
  • Linnea will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Leafeon, the plant Pokémon.
  • Rea will allow us to evolve our Eevee into Glaceon, the Ice Pokémon.

If you don’t name your Eevee one of these, it will randomly evolve to any of its transformations. So if you want it to become the one you want make sure you put the correct name. To evolve it we remember that you have to give it 25 Eevee candies after having changed the name. Of course, we recommend that for 100% effect to take effect, you restart the game before evolving your character.

Can you evolve Eevee to Sylveon in Pokemon GO?

We know that it is the “holy grail” of many, have a Sylveon in Pokémo GO or have Eevee evolve into this character that was introduced in the sixth generation. For those of you who are looking for the method, we have bad news: it doesn’t exist yet. And it is that Niantic has not yet integrated the last characters of the saga into its mobile game, so it is that, directly, it does not yet exist in the game.

This fairy type pokémon, for sure, will be one of the most appreciated. Its name in English could come from sylph (sylph, a type of fairies) or sylvan (sylvan, which literally means “from the forest”). There are those who also bet on sylvine or silvina, a mineral with colors similar to those of this character. Interestingly, in French and Japanese, her name changes to Ninfia and Nymphali, both originating from the word nymph.

Other methods to achieve the desired evolution

There are other methods to get some of the evolutions, specifically, to get Eevee to transform into Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.

Get Espeon or Umbreon

This method is relatively easy. We will have to select Eevee as a partner. Once this is done you will have to walk 10 kilometers and get the 25 candies. This method is not foolproof, but the possibilities are very high:

  • Select your Eevee and place him as a partner.
  • Walk at least 10 kilometers with your Eevee as a partner.
  • Then give him the 25 candies necessary for evolution to occur.
  • If you evolve it during the day: you will get Espeon.
  • If you evolve it overnight: you will get Umbreon.

Notably, as with the naming trick, this will only have valid for the first time. The rest of the occasions will always be a matter of randomness and a little luck.

Get Leafeon and Glaceon

If you want to get a Leafeon or a Glaceon, you can do it using bait modules. The Glacier and Mossy bait modules will be the ones that will help us get these Pokémon. Once we have them, we will have to do the following:

  • With the Mossy Module: When you are within range of a PokéStop, activate the Mossy module and turn the Photodisk, this will activate the evolution of Eevee in Leafeon.
  • With the Glacier Module: When you are within range of a PokéStop, activate the Glacier Module and turn the Photodisk, this will activate the evolution of Eevee in Glaceon.

Get Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon

We can choose the evolution of Eevee from other versions. What you need are candy, and in large quantities. You’re going to have to go hunting to catch a few Eevee if you want to get Vaporeon, Jolteon or Flareon. There are 25 candies that this creature requires to transform. Once you’ve got them, modify Eevee’s name to activate the cheat. These are the three nicknames that you must assign to it, with its corresponding evolution that we remember again:

  • Rainer to get Vaporeon
  • Pyro to evolve Flareon
  • Sparky to have Jolteon

And these are all the tricks to get the evolution of Eevee that we want. The way to choose Eevee evolution in Pokémon GO.
