POKEMON GO players can evolve their Eevee pokemon into a number of different versions, from Jolteon and Vaporeon, to Espeon and Umbreon. How do you evolve Eevee on Pokemon Go?
Pokemon Go allows players to collect pokemon when they are out and about, catching everything from Eevee to Charizard.
Similar to previous Pokemon games, you can evolve your Pokemon to bigger, more powerful characters, though the evolution process is slightly different to what you may be used to.
For example, the popular Pokemon Eevee is capable of evolving into a number of more powerful pokemon, depending on the method you use to evolve them.
How to evolve Eevee?
Eve can evolve and change into five separate Pokemon: Vaporeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Espeon and Umbreon.
Epson and Umbreon are second generation options for Eevee to evolve into, complete with new, dark powers.
If you have played other Pokemon games, you will know that you need to evolve Eevee with elemental stones to decide what it will evolve into.
For example, interacting Eevee with a fire stone will evolve it into a Flareon.
However, in Pokemon Go, this is different and s based entirely on what you name your Eevee.
If you name your Eevee a certain name, when it evolves, it will transform into the element related to the name.
The process of evolving Eevee was a bit of a mystery until recently – here are the names you need to change to evolve Eevee.
Tap on the pencil icon near Eevee’s name and type in one of the following to choose Eevee’s evolution:
Name your Eevee Pyro to get a Flareon.
Name your Eevee Sparky to get a Jolteon.
Name your Eevee Rainer to get a Vaporeon.
Name your Eevee Sakura to get an Espeon.
Name your Eevee Tamao to get an Umbreon.
Once you have renamed your Eevee, quit the Pokemon Go app and restart it completely.
When you log back into the app, click on the Evolve button on your chosen Eevee and you will be treated with an evolved new Pokemon.
Be sure that you have enough Eevee candy to evolve the Pokemon. It is advised you pick the most powerful Eevee to ensure your evolution will be strong.
How to evolve Eevee into Umbreon and Espeon using Day and Night
You can evolve your Eevee into the Gen 2 Pokemon Espeon and Umbreon using the time of day or night.
To do so, you must first make sure that your Eevee has 10km’s distance walked and 2 candy collected as your buddy.
Set the Eevee as your Buddy and then decide if you want an Espeon or an Umbreon.
To get an Espeon, evolve your Eeeve during the day, to get an Umbreon, evolve it during the night.
Players are still waiting to evolve their Eevee into the Gen 3 and 4 pokemon LEafeon, Sylvan and Glaceon, but there has been no news on when this update will come through.
If you are struggling to decide which evolution to choose for your Eevee, it is worth noting that Vaporeon is currently one of the best options, as it has the highest potential CP.
