How to Evolve Eevee in Pokemon Go: A Comprehensive Guide
Introduction to Eevee and its Evolutionary Forms
Eevee is a popular and versatile Pokémon that has multiple evolutionary forms in the Pokémon Go game. Eevee’s evolution is unique because it can evolve into several different Pokémon, depending on various factors such as the use of evolution stones, the time of day, and Eevee’s nickname.
Eevee has eight different evolutionary forms, including Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon (introduced in later versions of the game). Each of these evolutionary forms has its unique strengths and weaknesses, making them useful in different situations.
Understanding Eevee and its evolution forms is essential for trainers who want to create a balanced and powerful Pokémon team. In the following sections, we will discuss the methods for evolving Eevee into its different forms and the specific requirements for each evolution.
How to Evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon
To evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon, you need to use the appropriate evolution stone. For Vaporeon, use a Water Stone; for Jolteon, use a Thunder Stone, and for Flareon, use a Fire Stone.
To use an evolution stone on Eevee, go to your bag and select the evolution stone you want to use. Then, click on Eevee and select the “Evolve” option. Once you have used the stone, Eevee will evolve into the corresponding Pokémon.
It’s worth noting that using an evolution stone is the only way to evolve Eevee into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon. This means that you cannot evolve Eevee into these Pokémon by using the nickname trick or by evolving at a specific time of day.
Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon are powerful Pokémon that are effective in battles. Vaporeon has high HP and special defense, making it an excellent choice for defending gyms. Jolteon has high speed and special attack, making it a great choice for attacking gyms. Flareon has high attack and special defense, making it a reliable choice for battles.
How to Evolve Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon
To evolve Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon, you need to have a good relationship with your Eevee and evolve it during the day or night, respectively.
To build a good relationship with Eevee, you need to do the following:
- Walk with Eevee as your buddy Pokémon for at least 10km.
- Earn two Eevee candies by walking with Eevee as your buddy.
- While Eevee is still your buddy, evolve it during the day to get Espeon or during the night to get Umbreon.
Once you have met these requirements, you can evolve Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon by following the above steps. It’s worth noting that you can only use this method once per Eevee.
Espeon is a Psychic-type Pokémon that has high special attack and special defense. It’s effective in battles against Fighting- and Poison-type Pokémon. Umbreon is a Dark-type Pokémon that has high defense and special defense. It’s useful in battles against Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokémon.
How to Evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon
To evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon, you need to use a specific lure module. For Leafeon, use a Mossy Lure module, and for Glaceon, use a Glacial Lure module.
To use a lure module on a PokeStop, go to the PokeStop and spin the photo disc. Then, click on the “Add Lure” button and select the Mossy Lure module or Glacial Lure module.
Once the lure module is active, evolve Eevee while it’s within the range of the PokeStop. This means you need to be close to the PokeStop with the active lure module to evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon.
Leafeon is a Grass-type Pokémon that has high attack and special defense. It’s useful in battles against Water-, Ground-, and Rock-type Pokémon. Glaceon is an Ice-type Pokémon that has high special attack and special defense. It’s effective in battles against Flying-, Ground-, and Dragon-type Pokémon.
Tips and Tricks for Evolving Eevee with Desired Traits and Abilities
If you want to evolve Eevee into a specific form with desired traits and abilities, here are some tips and tricks you can use:
Use the nickname trick: You can use a specific nickname for Eevee to evolve it into a specific form. For example, if you nickname Eevee “Rainer,” it will evolve into Vaporeon. If you nickname it “Sparky,” it will evolve into Jolteon. If you nickname it “Pyro,” it will evolve into Flareon. If you nickname it “Sakura,” it will evolve into Espeon. If you nickname it “Tamao,” it will evolve into Umbreon.
Check the IVs: Individual Values (IVs) determine a Pokémon’s potential in battles. You can use an IV calculator to check Eevee’s IVs and choose the one with the highest potential.
Use a Fast TM or Charged TM: If you want to change Eevee’s moveset after evolving it, you can use a Fast TM or Charged TM to change its moves.
Wait for Community Day: During Community Day events, the chances of finding shiny Eevee are higher, and the event usually comes with special bonuses that make evolving Eevee easier.
By following these tips and tricks, you can evolve Eevee into the form with the desired traits and abilities that you need for battles and gym raids.
