Our beloved Eevee has always been an intriguing Pokémon to evolve, even in the first Pokémon games, where you needed a different type of stone to evolve Eevee into one of its powered-up forms (Flareon is one of my all-time favorite Pokémon, by the way). Eevee evolutions in Pokémon Go can be both easy and hard to get right. To begin with, all eight Pokémon Go Eevee evolutions are now available. These include the following forms:
Eevee requires 25 candies to evolve to one of the first three forms (Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon), but out of the box, the resulting evolved form is random among those.

To remove the randomness, all you need to do is change Eevee's nickname before evolving her. Using this method, you can evolve Eevee to all eight forms, once per account. Once you use a nickname, you cannot use it a second time, and you will have to resort to the second method.
The second method is not universal among all 8 forms, and it is split into four different approaches to evolve Eevee, one per generation of evolved forms.
How to Evolve Eevee in Pokémon Go Using Nicknames
As I said, the first method, which can only be used once per form, requires you to change Eevee's nickname before evolving her. There is one unique nickname associated with each form, and you can use it to control the evolution and get that form. Here are all the eight evolution-nickname combos:
- Flareon: Pyro
- Jolteon: Sparky
- Vaporeon: Rainer
- Espeon: Sakura
- Umbreon: Tamao
- Leafeon: Linnea
- Glaceon: Rea
- Sylveon: Kira
Ensure the silhouette of the evolved form before evolving Eevee so that you won't waste 25 candies for a random form if you made a typo.
While this is the easiest way to get each Eevee evolution in Pokémon Go, the question remains what you do after you exhaust all eight nicknames.
There is both good and bad news here, as you cannot control the first three original forms, but you can control the other five, albeit with some extra work.
How to Evolve Eevee to Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon
To get Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon, you will have to rely on luck, plain and simple (that's after you exhaust their nicknames). The evolution will be random, and you cannot do anything about it, so you have a 33% chance to get the form you want.
Now let's get to the evolutions you can control.
How to Evolve Eevee to Umbreon or Espeon
To get Eevee's Generation 2 evolutions, after you use their respective nicknames, you will have to:
- Add Eevee as your buddy and:
- Walk 10 kms during the day and then evolve Eevee to get Umbreon. Make sure that the in-game sky indicates day time.
- Walk 10 kms during the night and then evolve Eevee to get Umbreon. Make sure that the in-game sky indicates night time.
As I said, there is a bit of a challenge here. Now let's see how you can get the two Generation 4 Eevee evolutions at will.
How to Evolve Eevee to Leafeon or Glaceon
To get Leafeon, you will have to evolve Eevee and apply a Mossy Lure during the evolution. Likewise, to get Glaceon, you will have to evolve Eevee and apply a Glacial Lure during the evolution. Both Lures cost 200 coins at the in-game store.
How to Evolve Eevee to Sylveon in Pokémon Go
To conclude, we have Sylveon, the generation 6 Eevee evolution of Eevee. Sylveon is all about loyalty, so you will have to earn 75 hearts with Eevee as your buddy and keep her as your buddy during the evolution to get this form.
