Eevee evolutions in Pokémon Go: how to get Sylveon, Espeon and more

In Pokémon Go, as in the main series of Pokémon games, there are plenty of different Eevee evolutions you can choose between, letting you upgrade your fluffy friend into a wide range of evolved creatures.

Unlike the vast majority of other Pokémon, in Pokémon Go Eevee has a grand total of eight possible evolutions, some of which are a lot easier to obtain or trigger than others.

Each Eevee evolution in Pokémon Go requires you to take different steps to unlock - literally, in most cases, given it's a game about walking - so it's worth researching your desired evolution of choice before you begin the process.

The choices you have are Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Flareon, Jolteon or Sylveon, and with that many options there's no way you can rely on random evolution to get you the Eevee evolution you want, especially for some of the above which have hoops to jump through.

Below we’ll guide you through all the ways it’s possible to evolve Eevee so that you can get the evolutionary form you want. 

How to evolve Eevee using nicknames

The classic means of getting the Eevee evolution your heart desires is to give it a specific nickname before it evolves. With this method, all you have to do is rename your Eevee with one of the names below and then, when you get the requisite 25 candies to evolve it, everything will fall into place. 

If you really hate giving your Pok√©mon nicknames, you can always change it back after your Eevee has evolved. 

  • Vaporeon (Water-type): Rainer
  • Flareon (Fire-type): Pyro
  • Jolteon (Electric-type): Sparky
  • Umbreon (Dark-type): Tamao
  • Espeon (Psychic-type): Sakura
  • Glaceon (Ice-type): Rea
  • Leafon (Grass-type): Linnea
  • Sylveon (Fairy-type): Kira
  • Something important to note with this method, though, is that it only works once for each nickname. 

    So, once you’ve evolved an Eevee into each of the available evolutions using this method then you’ll need to start resorting to other means if you want any more. Keep reading to find out what those are. 

    How to evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon

    We’ll get the bad news out of the way first; for these three originals, after you’ve used the nickname trick, we’re afraid there isn’t really much more you can do to guarantee them. 

    In order to get any more, you’ll have to revert to random evolutions by gathering Eevees and candies and keeping your fingers crossed that when it evolves you’ll get what you’re looking for. 

    How to evolve Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon

    Grass-type Leafeon and Ice-type Glaceon are the latest Eeveelutions to be added to Pok√©mon Go and unlike Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon there is a secondary way of securing their forms. 

    In order to evolve Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon you’ll have to get specific items: either the Glacial Lure Module for Glaceon or the Mossy Lure Module for Leafeon, both of which can be purchased in the in-game shop for 200 coins each. 

    Once you have the correct Lure Module, simply apply it to a Pok√©Stop. While you’re still close to that Pok√©Stop and the Lure is active, evolve your Eevee using the usual 25 candies and you should get the form you’re looking for. If everything is working properly, the evolution button should show the outline of the Eevee evolution you're going to get before you press it, rather than the usual question mark. 

    How to evolve Eevee into Espeon and Umbreon

    Espeon and Umbreon do have a secondary means of securing their evolutions, though it takes a little more effort than a simple name change or purchasing a Lure Module. 

    This method is probably the most involved of all but if your heart is set then it’ll be worth it. For these Generation 2 evolutions, you have to set your Eevee as your buddy and have it walk with you for 10km in order to earn two candies (earning two candies is key). 

    Once that’s done, you can evolve your Eevee, but the time of day shown in-game will determine which of the evolutions you get. Evolve Eevee during the day and you’ll get the Psychic-type Espeon. At night, on the other hand, you’ll get the Dark-type Umbreon. 

    This trick can be somewhat finicky, so do make sure that Eevee is still your buddy when you evolve it and ensure that you have GPS signal so that the game has the time of day absolutely right where you are. Fortunately, this isn’t limited like the nicknames so you can do it as often as you like (if you can be bothered). 

    How to evolve Eevee into Sylveon

    While other Eeveelutions require walking a certain distance and evolving at a specific time of the day, Sylveon is all about friendship. 

    To get repeat Syvleons beyond the single-use naming method, you'll have to get one as your buddy, and then accumulate 75 hearts with it. After that, the option should appear to evolve an additional Sylveon.

    To get Sylveon as your buddy, you can take photos with it, play with it, feed it, spin new Pok√©Stops – all the usual shenanigans to earn hearts with a buddy, basically. You can earn a maximum of 20 hearts per day, so, in theory, you can evolve an Eevee into Sylveon in four days. 

    And that’s how you can get the Eeveelution of your dreams. We’re fairly certain that's the last of the Eevee evolutions coming to the the game, but we’ll update this page with any more information if and when it becomes available.
