Eevee has always been one of the coolest Pokémon in cartoons and games. After all, it is the one that has the most evolution! The problem is that it is not always easy to evolve it into the shape you want. Especially in Pokémon GO. But know that there are ways for you to have virtually all your shapes in this game is a very simple way!

For that you will have to have several Eevees and change their names. That, change their names! But take it easy: below we explain exactly how to have all the evolutions of this Pokémon using this trick!
Change Eevee’s names to evolve him
You can basically feed an Eevee with 25 Candy from that Pokémon. After that, it will automatically evolve into one of the simplest forms, which can be Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Umbreon or Espeon. This is the easiest way without intruding the player.
The point here is that you need to be lucky. As the evolution will occur at random, it will be very difficult to get the Pokémon you want. In that sense, some players have found that you can interfere in Eevee’s evolution by simply changing his name.
But it’s not just any name! You should remember that in the first season of Pokémon, in the Indigo League, Ash meets Eevee’s brother coaches. Almost secretly the creators of GO paid homage to them. So the names must be:
- Vaporeon: change Eevee’s name to Rainer
- Jolteon: change Eevee’s name to Sparky
- Flareon: change Eevee’s name to Pyro
- Umbreon: change Eevee’s name to Tamao
- Espeon: change Eevee’s name to Sakura
Pay attention to some details here. The first is that this tactic only works ONCE with each type of Pokémon. That is: if you used the tactic to have a Jolteon, you will not be able to use it again to have the same Pokémon. And that goes for all Eevee’s evolutions.
Another thing: restart the game when you change Eevee’s name. It may be that the server crashes or has some kind of problem, invalidating the rename. In most cases, this method was an absolute success. For some players, however, it didn’t work out very well. This is usually due to the fact that the name change was invalidated.
What is the best evolution of Eevee?
Many players wonder what exactly is the best evolution of Eevee in Pokémon GO. This answer can be a little complex, as we are talking about Pokémon of different types. So ideally, try to have one of each element:
- Vaporeon: Pokémon water
- Jolteon: Electric Pokémon
- Flareon: Fire Pokémon
- Umbreon: Pokémon dark
- Espeon: Psychic Pokémon
- Glaceon: Pokémon ice
- Leafeon: Pokémon plant
If you can’t or don’t want to have one of each type, we recommend that you think about your needs. If you like or need a psychic Pokémon, go Espeon! Also, remember that the CP of each Pokémon is very important. If Eevee does not have high Combat Points, it will evolve and remain weak.
The only thing we say with complete certainty, and based on comments from players, is that Umbreon is one of the worst. He is quite weak against most other Pokémon due to his type, being a less interesting choice than the others.
Another way to get Umbreon and Espeon
Do you remember that in games like Pokémon Silver or any others that have Jotho Pokémon there is a special way to obtain Umbreon and Espeon. Eevee evolves to the first if he is trained only at night. Espeon is obtained when Eevee is trained during the day.
Well, the same can be done in Pokémon GO. This ensures that you have these two types for sure without having to use the name switching trick.
The method is simple, but needs to be followed to the letter. Put Eevee as a partner. Walk exactly 10 kilometers with him, having to obtain 2 Candies in this process. If it is at night, evolve it and you will have Umbreon. If you prefer Espeon, do it during the day!
How to get Glaceon and Leafeon in Pokémon GO
The method of changing names may work to obtain Glaceon and Leafeon, but the chances of that happening are very small. If you want to try, change the first name to Rea and the second to Linnea.
The most guaranteed way to have these two monsters is using a special item, called the Lure Model. This item creates an environment in which certain Pokémon can evolve. This is the case, among others, for Eevee, but only for Leafeon and Glaceon.
In the case of Leafeon, he must have the Lure Mossy, while Glaceon requires the Lure Glacial. Don’t forget that for evolution to happen you need to have Candy from Eevee left over!
