We all know that Pokémon GO has little to do with the original Nintendo saga. In this installment of virtual reality for mobile phones, we ourselves have to go out in search of the creatures to complete the Pokédex.
The differences that you can find between both cases are quite noticeable in every way. Even when it comes to evolutions, since these are done through candies. This is the reason why many players do not know how to get all the evolutions of a Pokémon as peculiar as Eevee and its different forms.
In classic video games , a certain object or requirement was needed to carry out the transformation. For Flareon, Vaporeon and Jolteon it was necessary to have obtained a fire, water or lightning stone respectively, while for other cases such as Espeon or Umbreon it was necessary to increase its level during a specific period of the day when happiness was optimal.
In Pokémon GO these types of elements cannot be obtained and there is no term of happiness for our Pokémon. This is the cause of unawareness, but you have nothing to worry about. Evolving Eevee is easier than it seems and a simple modification is enough. Of course, first of all, you need to collect 25 candies of their kind to be able to start the process.
change the name
Unlike classic titles where you had to go to the nickname expert to change your name, in Pokémon GO you don’t have to resort to anything or anyone. The procedure for this does not keep any mystery and is that it is enough to access the Pokémon in question and click on the pencil that appears to the right of its nickname. Now is when you must enter a special nickname for the evolution you are looking for. The list is as follows:
- Pyro – Evolves into Flareon (Fire).
- Sparky – Evolves into Jolteon (Electric).
- Rainer – Evolves into Vaporeon (Water).
- Sakura – Evolves into Espeon (Psychic).
- Size – Evolves into Umbreon (Sinister).
- Linnea: Evolves into Leafeon (Plant).
- Rhea: Evolves into Glaceon (Ice).
- Kira: Evolves into Sylveon (Fairy).
The fact of specifying a specific nickname is due to a chapter of the series where three brothers each had one of the first three versions of Eevee. For this reason, to evolve it to that particular form, you must enter the name of the trainer.
Be careful, it is necessary to point out that after having made the nickname change, you have to restart the Pokémon GO application so that the modification is updated. To find out if the process has had an effect, look closely at Eevee’s silhouette, because it will show the way it is going to turn.
Also, this little trick only works the first time you alter its name. This means that you cannot get the same shape twice with just the above. Otherwise, the evolution will be random. So you should think calmly about what version you want to get and if you intend to use it later. In this case, it would be advisable to reserve the strongest for your favorite.
