Pokemon Go: New hack to evolve Eevee into RARE Pokemon?!

30 April 2017
If your local park offers up nothing but thousands of yawn-yawn-so-boring Eevees pay attention: this Pokemon Go trick is going to blow your mind… AGAIN!

The Pokemon Company

Remember that awesome Pokemon evolution trick we told you about? Well, turns out the little naming hack works for more than just Espeon and Umbreon…

The renaming trick also works to evolve into Lightning-type Jolteon, water-type Vaporeon, and fire-type Flareon.

The Pokemon Company

To get Jolteon, you need to nickname your Eevee as Sparky, to evolve into Vaporeon you need to name Eevee as Rainer, and to get your hands on a Flareon, rename as Pyro (yes, they're named after the Eevee brothers in the anime!)

The Pokemon Company

Once you've renamed them, you must restart your app, check the changes have registered on the game creators Niantic's servers and bang… you're on your way.

Interestingly, there are three more Eevee evolutions we've yet to see introduced in Pokémon Go: Glaceon, Slyveon, and Glaceon. I wonder what/when we'll discover the trick to evolve into them…?

Meanwhile, have you seen Pokemon Shuffle, a Pokemon game just like puzzle game Candy Crush? And did you hear the news that Pokemon GO is officially good for you? Remember that next time someone says gaming isn't good for you... ;)
