If you’ve played any Pokemon games before besides from Pokemon Go, you would know that Eevee can evolve into different elemental varieties based on the use of special items, its happiness level, moves it has available and even the time of day. But with Pokemon Go, the evolution of Eevee is seemed to be happening at random, with no chance of picking from Vaporeon, Flareon or Jolteon.
Or so we thought.
Users have discovered a trick that allows you to evolve the said Pokemon to Flareon, Jolteon or Vaporeon. Just rename it to the following:
- “Rainer“, to evolve into water type Vaporeon
- “Sparky“, to evolve into lightning type Jolteon
- “Pyro“, to evolve into fire type Flareon
After renaming your Eevee into one of the names above, quit the game and reload the app to double check the name change has taken place. This is an important part, since this will let you check if the Niantic servers have synced your renamed Eevee.
Now, if you’re wondering “why those names?” Let us refresh your memory from the Season 1, Episode 40 of the Pokemon TV Show below.
