This guide describes how to evolve each Eevee form using regular evolution methods and Eevee name tricks in Pokémon GO. Using the following steps, you can find the following Pokémon in Pokémon GO: Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.
A specific method exists in Pokémon GO to evolve Eevee into any desired evolution form, called Eevolution as it blends Pokémon’s name with the word evolution.
To accomplish the trick, Eevee is given a specific nickname before evolving. Eevee evolution names are listed in this guide, along with a detailed explanation of how to evolve regularly into the desired form.
Sylveon is a fairy-type Pokemon. The steps for evolving an Eevee can differ depending on the type. Still, trainers used to evolve other EEVELutions like Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Leafeon are likely to perform various tasks to obtain the right EEVELution. You can only use the well-known nickname trick on one account.
How to Get Sylveon in Pokemon GO
Using the nickname trick to evolve a Sylveon or the Buddy Pokemon system in Pokemon Go
When evolving Eevee in Pokemon GO, trainers can use either the nickname trick or the conventional evolution method. Traditional methods differ with each type of EEVELution, but all are straightforward. It’s possible to activate Sylveon’s evolution using the nickname trick, or by obtaining 70 hearts using Eevee as a Buddy Pokemon.
To utilize the nickname trick, all trainers need to open their Eevee’s information page via their Pokemon roster screen. They should tap the pencil icon next to Eevee’s name and input a new name. Changing the name of the Eevee to Kira will guarantee the evolution of the Eevee to Sylveon. In any case, this trick will only work with one Eevee, so Pokemon GO trainers should make sure that they use the right Eevee to evolve into a Sylveon.
In Pokémon GO, how to evolve Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon
You can get Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon by using the name trick method (Sakura for Espeon, Tamao for Umbreon) or the Buddy Pokémon evolution method.
Evolving a random Eevee will produce either Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon – at random. By pressing Evolve, you cannot evolve your Eevee into any other evolution. There was a cost of 25 Candy, and it does not matter whether the trick had already been used or not.
Pokemon GO: Espeon and Umbreon: how to evolve
You can evolve Espeon and Umbreon by using the Eevee name trick (Sakura for Espeon, Tamao for Umbreon) or the Buddy Pokémon evolution method.
Buddy system evolution
With your Eevee Buddy, follow these steps to get Espeon and Umbreon:
- Your Buddy should be the Eevee you wish to evolve
- Earn 2 Eevee Candy during 10 km of walking with your Buddy when you evolve it
- Evolve the Eevee while it’s your Buddy
- you’ll receive Espeon
- Evolving an Eevee during night time will provide you with Umbreon
Eevee must be set as a buddy before evolution. The trainer needs to make sure all the criteria are met before evolving during the day to acquire Psychic-type Espeon, and to obtain Dark-type Umbreon during the night on the Pokémon GO app.
Local time determines the length of the day and night, so the GPS signal is also required. Otherwise, the evolution will be random.
Neither Espeon nor Umbreon spawn in the wild because they require a particular item to evolve. As it can be repeated repeatedly, the Buddy System method is the only reliable means of obtaining them.
Leafeon and Glaceon: how to evolve them in Pokemon GO
Leafeon and Glaceon can either evolve through their Eevee names (Linnea for Leafeon, Rea for Glaceon) or by evolving one of the following lures:
- To get Leafeon, evolve under a Mossy Lure; to get Glaceon, evolve under a Glacial Lure
How to evolve Sylveon in Pokémon GO
With Eevee as your buddy, you can get Sylveon by using 25 Candies and earning 70 Hearts. You will be able to see Sylveon’s silhouette if you accumulate enough Candy and Hearts.
