Eevee is a pretty tricksy Pokémon at the best of times, with a bunch of different potential evolutions that it can change into seemingly at random. Fortunately though, it’s not as random as it seems in Pokémon Go, as there is actually a method that you can use to game the system and force Eevee to evolve into each of its different forms.
There are a few caveats though, which we’ll go into the final details of later in our Pokémon Go Eevee evolution guide. Ultimately, to answer your potential question, yes, there is a reliable method of getting Eevee to evolve into Umbreon, Espeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Glaceon, Leafeon, and Vaporeon, and it works every single time.
If you’re a big fan of the location-based monster collector, we thoroughly recommend checking out our other guides, including Pokémon Go update, Pokémon Go event, Pokémon Go raids, and Pokémon Go news. In the meantime though, let’s take a look at our Pokémon Go Eevee evolution guide.
Pokémon Go Eevee Evolution – how it works:
Eevee has seven different forms of evolution, which includes Umbreon, Espeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Glaceon, Leafeon, and Vaporeon. After acquiring 25 candy, you can evolve Eevee into any of these different forms at random.

But how do you take the random element out of it and, instead, force Eevee to take each of the individual forms? Well, it’s a simple process of changing Eevee’s name before you evolve them.
It’s worth noting that this method only allows you to get each different from of Eevee a single time. Once you’ve performed it on your account, you will no longer be able to get that particular form of Eevee using this method on that account.
Here are the different names you’ll need to use to get each different Pokémon Go Eevee evolution:
- Umbreon: Tamao
- Espeon: Sakura
- Flareon: Pyro
- Jolteon: Sparky
- Glaceon: Rea
- Leafeon: Linnea
- Vaporeon: Rainer
While the above method is the easiest manner with which to get every single Eevee evolution in Pokémon Go, there are actually a number of alternative methods for a few specific evolutions.

Here’s a round-up of how they work:
- Umbreon: while Eevee is your buddy, walk 10km then evolve it during the night
- Espeon: while Eevee is your buddy, walk 10km then evolve it during the day
- Glaceon: use a glacial lure while evolving Eevee
- Leafeon: use a mossy lure while evolving Eevee
