As a Pokémon fan, you already know what an Eevee is; a small, cute, quadrupled Pokémon with primarily brown fur. And perhaps, it is the only Pokémon that has 8 different possible evolution forms!
Eevee as a non-evolved Pokémon is a normal type Pokémon with simple normal type moves being Tackle, Quick Attack and Growl (Pokémon GO wiki). As you train it and level it up, it can evolve into any of the 8 possible forms.
In the Pokémon cartoon series and Pokémon GO, only three are popular – Flareon, Vaporeon and Jolteon. The other 5 – Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon are rarely seen in the Pokémon cartoon series.
In Pokémon GO, there are just Flareon, Vaporeon and Jolteon.
Theories that revolved around the web about the evolution of Eevee included:
- Eevee’s secondary attack determines the form of evolution of Eevee.
- Colour of the nearest gym is the one to which Eevee evolution correlates.
Besides these, there are many other rumours, but as time passed, each of them proved to be wrong.
But, as per the latest update by a Redditor, there’s a trick with which you can make Eevee evolve into one of your choices!
Steps to make Eevee evolve into a form of your choice:
- Navigate to your Dashboard, open up the Pokémons list that you’ve captured.
- Select the Eevee, which you want to evolve.
- Edit the nickname to Rainer to evolve it into Vaporeon, Sparky to evolve it into a Jolteon and Pyro to evolve into Flareon.
- Restart the game (optional) and tap on “Evolve“.
Note: For some gamers, the trick doesn’t work without restarting the game after renaming. So, to make sure that it works fine for you, do restart your game before you evolve your Pokémon.
With this done, when you give it a stone or when it evolves naturally, it will evolve to your desired Pokémon. This is tested and verified by 100’s of users and it works every time without fail.
Logic behind this Eevee evolution trick
In the Pokémon cartoon series, there were three brothers popularly known as Eevee brothers named Rainer, Pyro and Sparky.
Rainer owned a Vaporeon, Pyro owned a Flareon and Sparky had a Jolteon.
So, when you give Eevee a nickname that corresponds to one of the three Eevee brothers, Eevee evolves into the Pokémon which the masters had.
