Pokemon Go Eevee Evolution Name Guide

Pokemon Go Eevee Evolution Name Guide is here to help you get the Eveelution you want without the hassle of dealing with random chance.


Eevee has some of the most unique evolution lines in Pokemon. Thankfully, Pokemon Go Eevee evolutions are not as hard, as there are a few easy tricks. For those looking for the random way, you can just use 25 Eevee candy and you will get a random Eveelutions. You could just do this for everyone, but, it might take some time. We'll highlight the easiest solution below, with the more difficult ones after.

These nickname evolutions are a one-time use.

Eevee Evolution Name Nickname
Jolteon Sparky
Flareon Pyro
Vaporeon Rainer
Espeon Sakura
Leafeon Linnea
Umbreon Tamao
Sylveon Kira
Glaceon Rea

Just change the nickname of the Eevee and then hit evolution and you'll have the Eveelution you wanted. Then, just delete the nickname and it will return to its correct name. It's worth noting that this only works once. So, if you want a Jolteon, and use this method, make sure it's the best one you have. Future Sparky nickname evolutions will not guarantee a Jolteon etc.

Be sure to check the silhouette on the evolution of Eevee to make sure the nickname trick has worked. If you change the nickname to Pyro, and Flareon is not the silhouette, then you've done something wrong or done it before.
