Pokemon Go - Eevee Evolution

Pokemon Go players can evolve their Eevee into one of three creatures of their choosing using a particular nickname for each.

They way it’s done is by giving Eeeve a different nickname for each evolution.

  • Jolteon – give nickname Sparky
  • Vaporeon – give the nickname Rainer
  • Flareon – give the nickname Pyro

Once you’ve done this you should quit the app and reload it to make sure the change has saved. Pokemon Go’s servers are ropey, so always double check big changes like this.

These nicknames should sound familiar to Pokemon fans: the Eevee Brothers in the original anime were named Sparky, Rainer and Pyro. Naming your Eevee after one of these brothers causes it to evolve into their Eevee of choice.
