Way 1. Eevee Names Trick is the Easiest Evolutions Method in Pokémon GO [For all types]

Sometimes, it doesn’t feel easy to follow the method as we go through it for the first time. But I will never want you to go through that struggle. Here, I explained the methods in the easiest way so you can evolve your Eevee without any complexity.

Pokémon GO Eevee Evolution Names Trick

Eevee names trick is simple and popular method to evolve Eevee into any other evolutions in Pokémon Go. You just have to change the name of Eevee to the nickname of evolution. For example, if you want to change your Eevee into Sylveon, you will have to rename it to its nickname, Kira.

The list of nicknames for each evolution is given below. But this method can only be used once on one Pokémon Go account.

The higher the generation, the more advanced evolution you will get. The recent addition to the evolution family is Sylveon. I recommend you to use this method to evolve to the highest Eeveelution as it is challenging to get Sylveon with other methods.

  1. Collect necessary candies, such as 25 candies for each evolution.
  2. Please wait for the evolution and choose to evolve when it becomes available.
  3. Repeat the process if you do not get your desired evolution.

Although Sylveon was recently added to the evolution group of Eevee, it is one of my favorite Pokémon evolutions.

The pink color Pokémon with a combination of white and blue makes it stand out from the crowd. Not only is it outstanding in looks but power. The maximum CP of Sylveon can reach up to 3470 with the attack, defense, and stamina power of 203, 205, and 216, respectively.
