As most Pokémon trainers are aware, Eevee has a large array of possible evolutions. Some of them can be forced by using specific stones, but in Pokémon Go some of these stones aren't available. This means that if you want to get a specific evolution, you may have to just get lucky.
However, Pokémon Go has a trick that can guarantee you'll get the Eeveelution you want. When you nickname your Eevee one of the names in the list below, it guarantees the Eevee will evolve into the respective Eeveelution. The downside to this trick is that each name can only be used once. Still, if you're looking for a specific Eevee, this is the way to get it!
- Espeon: Sakura
- Flareon: Pyro
- Glaceon: Rea
- Jolteon: Sparky
- Leafeon: Linnea
- Sylveon: Kira
- Umbreon: Tamao
- Vaporeon: Rainer
To rename your Eevee, use the following steps:
- Select the Eevee you'd like to evolve from the list of Pokémon you have in your inventory.
- Tap the name of your Eevee (default is Eevee).
- Type in the name of the Eevee type you'd like from the list above.
- Evolve your Eevee!
Once you've done everything shown above, you'll have the Eeveelution you wanted!
