When it comes to Eevee, it can be hard to know exactly what you are transforming your Pokemon into when they evolve. Unlike other Pokemon games that use items to change what Eeveelution you end up with, in Pokemon Go you are only using candies, so how do you get Leafeon, Glaceon, Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon easily?

When can you evolve Eevee in Pokemon GO?

Pokemon Go allows you to evolve Eevee once you have 25 candies, but the game itself isn’t without a few tips and tricks to help you get the one you’d like. We are going to dive into these tricks, in hopes of helping you evolve them all!

If you choose to evolve an Eevee, which has not had any extra effort or tinkering around with, then they will evolve into a Vaporeon, Jolteon or Flareon, at random. These are sort of the default evolutions.

You can use naming to actually change the Eevee into one of the Eeveelutions that you want. But be aware that this trick only works once per evolution type, so you will want to make sure it has good stats before you use the nicknaming method. 

Name your Pokemon GO Eevee properly to get the right evolution!

If you name your Eevee as Linea, they will turn into the leaf-type, Leafeon. The name Rea will evolve them into the ice-type, Glaceon. If you’d like the psychic-type, Espeon, you can name your Eevee to Sakura, while the dark-type, Umbreon, can be found by naming it Tamao. If you’d like the water-type, Vaporeon, you can name your Eevee Rainer. If you want Flareon, the fire-type, you need to name it as Pyro. Lastly, if you want a Jolteon, the lightning-type, you can name your Eevee Sparky.

Along with naming, there are ways to continue to have some input on how your Eevee will turn out. Leafeon and Glaceon can be evolved by using the Mossy Lure or Glacial Lure, respectively. Once you have placed the lure you’d like on the Poke Stop, you can then evolve it from your Pokemon Inventory and they will become one of these two Pokemon.

If you want Umbreon or Espeon, you can try walking with your desired Eevee as a buddy, for 10km - gaining two candies in the process, then evolve it during the night for Umbreon or during the day for Espeon. Remember, your Eevee will still need to be your buddy when you evolve them!

These are all the current ways to evolve Eevee into one of their Eeveelutions, but we are still waiting for Sylveon to find its way into the game, and then I am sure there will be more tricks to add!
