How to evolve Eevee

Eevee has eight different forms that it can evolve into. Here are those species:

  • Vaporeon
  • Flareon
  • Jolteon
  • Espeon
  • Umbreon
  • Leafeon
  • Glaceon
  • Sylveon

The methods required to acquire these different types are actually hidden within the anime series itself. But first, you will need to gather 25 Eevee Candies before carrying out the next steps.

There is a trick that players can carry out to handpick which species they would like their Eevee to evolve into, and it’s incredibly simple. All you have to do is rename your Eevee to a specific word, and then your Pokemon will evolve into one of the following:

  • Kira – Sylveon
  • Linnea – Leafeon
  • Rea – Glaceon
  • Sakura – Espeon
  • Tamao – Umbreon
  • Rainer – Vaporeon
  • Sparky – Jolteon
  • Pyro – Flareon

However, before you get carried away and go mad with the evolutions, this only works once per evolution type, so just ensure that you choose the Eevee with the best appraisal rating from your respective trainer.
