As most Pokémon trainers know, Eevee has a wide range of possible evolutions. Some of them can be forced using specific stones, but in Pokémon Go some of these stones are not available. This means that if you want to get a specific evolution, you might just have to 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 from the list below, it guarantees that 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 particular Eevee, this is the way to get it!



  • Espeon: Sakura
  • Flareon: Pyro
  • Glaceon: Rea
  • Jolteon: Sparky
  • Leafeon: Linnaeus
  • Sylveon: Kira
  • Umbreon: Tamao
  • Vaporeon: Rainer
