How to Choose Your Eevee Evolution in Pokemon Go

Pokemon GO has only been out a couple weeks and even less time in the UK but that has not stopped trainers from finding new tricks and offering tips to each other. The latest tip, which comes straight from Reddit user, smithnigel is on how to choose what evolution your Eevee turns into.

It comes from the history of the original anime, the Eevee Brothers each had a different Eevee evolution, Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon and they named them Rainer, Pyro, Sparky respectively.

Now in Pokemon Go there have been reports that if you name your Eevee one of the three names your Eevee will evolve into that type of choice. This has been confirmed by multiple users on Reddit who have tried but there has been a few inconsistencies.

  • Sometimes the server might not register your Eevee’s name and does not evolve correctly. It is suggested you name your Eevee and then restart the app to confirm it has been saved. Then evolve as normal.
  • Some users have also reported that the first evolution for your Eevee will be correct but can only be done one at a time. This is not confirmed officially but users have noticed that trying to get two Vaporeons in a row for example does not seem to be 100%.
