Eevee is the cutest – sorry, Meowth – and most versatile of the feline creatures Pokémon has to offer. There are now eight different evolutions available for the little pocket monster in Pokémon Go, and not even all types are covered yet. Evolving Eevee in the mobile game has become a bit of a science of its own – especially if it is to be done in a targeted manner and not randomly. You can find all the important information and methods on how to evolve Eevee in Pokémon Go here.

Look at this adorable critter. I don't even want to evolve it.

Eevee name trick in Pokémon Go: all names

Here is the simplest method to get the Eeveelution you are looking for: the name trick. This one works as follows: Give the Eevee you want to evolve a specific nickname by tapping the button with a pen symbol next to its name. After that, the outline of the desired shape should appear on the evolution button when you check out the Pokémon again. Tap on the button and you'll have the monster you want.

But beware: this trick only works once per Eeveelution. Therefore, think carefully about whether you want to use it. It is advisable, for example, to save the name trick for the targeted evolution of a rare Shiny variant or an exceptionally strong monster you want to use in PvP battles.

Here are all the names for the evolution of Eevee:

  • Rainer (for Vaporeon)
  • Sparky (for Jolteon)
  • Pyro (for Flareon)
  • Tamao (for Umbreon)
  • Sakura (for Espeon)
  • Rea (for Glaceon)
  • Linnea (for Leafeon)
  • Kira (for Sylveon)
