It’s finally here! With Pokémon Legends: Arceus out in the big wide world, there are plenty of new Pokémon to catch and train, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some familiar faces hanging around Hisui. Among the returning cast is Eevee, one of the franchise’s most recognisable Pokémon, and it’s never been easier, or should I say eevier, to find and catch.
With our guide to Pokémon Legends: Arceus Eevee, you can reunite with everyone’s favourite friendly little fox Pokémon in no time. All eight Eevee evolutions also return, and with the catching mechanic at the core of this game, you’ll need to know all you can about getting your hands on as many Eevee as possible to max out your Pokédex.
If you’re looking for more tips and tricks to start your Hisuian adventure, be sure to check out our list of Pokémon Legends: Arceus legendary Pokémon, as well as the Pokémon Legends: Arceus starters. Or, if all this Eevee hunting has you wanting something a little different, take a look at our guide to Pokémon Legends: Arceus shiny Pokémon.
How to find Pokémon Legends: Arceus Eevee
You can find Eevee surprisingly early on in Pokémon Legends: Arceus by going to the Horseshoe Plains area of the Obsidian Fieldlands. It spends its time circling the small lakes in the north, shown on the map below, with other less-rare Pokémon surrounding it. It looks a little lonely there, so even better for adding to your team.
Despite its cute-as-a-button appearance, Eevee is quite the guard dog, and will attack like any other territorial Pokémon if you spook it by getting too close. Feather balls can help you out a great deal here, but if you’re still early in your playthrough, you should be able to sneak around enough to land yourself an Eevee with a regular Pokéball.
How to evolve Pokémon Legends: Arceus Eevee
Once you’ve got your Eevee, it’s down to you which of the eight evolutions to take on your adventure. We’ve detailed how to evolve Eevee into each final form so you can get your preference on your team as quickly as possible.
Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Glaceon, and Leafeon
For all the Eevee evolutions that rely on evolutionary stones, such as the fire stone for Flareon, you can buy them from the trading post in Jubilife Villiage, or the Pokémon Legends: Arceus Ginkgo Guild. They each cost 1000 merit points, or 5000 Pokédollars, so choose carefully which of the five you want first.
Alternatively, you can evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon using either the Mossy Rock, or the Ice Rock, respectively. You can find the Mossy Rock in the Grandtree Arena area of Obisidan Fieldlands, and the Ice Rock is available in a cave in Alabaster Icelands’ Bonechill Waste area. Just stand by either rock mentioned above and go to your menu to evolve your Eevee.
Umbreon and Espeon
Not much has changed in terms of evolving Eevee into its second-generation evolutions. For either Umbreon, or Espeon, you’ll first need to get your Eevee up to a good level of friendliness so it’s willing to evolve for you. You can increase your Pokemon’s friendliness by taking them on your journeys, as well as regularly feeding them fruits of the land. Then all you need to do is level up in the daytime for Espeon, or at night for Umbreon.
Sylveon is an easy one, you just need to get your Eevee to max friendliness, teach it a fairy-type move, and level it up, and then you’ll have your perfect pink Eeveelution.
With all that information, you should be just about ready to research with your Eevee proudly by your side. Once you’ve done that, why not add an extra special eeveelution to your team by tracking down a Pokémon Legends: Arceus shiny to show off around Hisui.
