Finally, after a huge amount of fake theories, speculation and cheats, there is a method that works! There’s finally a way for you to choose the Eeveelution that you want in Pokémon GO.
Reddit user /u/TheAztek has shared some their wisdom with the Eevee naming method. If you give your Eevee these nicknames, you’ll get the resulting Eeveelution when you evolve your Eevee:
To make sure this method works every time:
- Give your Eevee the nickname you want to use
- Close the game, force quit it and then open it again
- Evolve your Eevee and enjoy your new Flareon, Jolteon or Vaporeon.
This method has been tried and confirmed from numerous sources including this Reddit thread!
Here is /u/TheAztek’s post:
Still needs full confirmation, but I think there is a way to determine which Eeveelution you get. Name your Eevee either Pyro, Sparky or Rainer before you evolve it in order to get a Flareon, Jolteon or Vaporeon, respectfully.
Edit: 5/5 in a row has worked. Can others confirm. It is based off of the Eevee Bros episode of the original show.
Enjoy your new Eeveelutions!
