Pokemon GO: You Can Now Manually Evolve Eevee Into Jolteon, Flareon and Vaporeon

Pokemon GO feature the infamous Eevee which can evolve into three different types of Pokemon depending on some random factors. It was not possible to evolve Eevee into preferred form until recently, when a Pokemon GO player has managed to discover a trick that allows the user to manually evolve Eevee into either Jolteon, Flareon or Vaporeon.

This trick requires you to name your Eevee when you catch it. It relies on knowledge from the original Pokemon anime that had a set of characters called The Eevee Brothers.

These brothers were named Rainer, Pyro, Sparky and they owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon respectively. To get either of the Eevee evolution form, you can try to rename your Pokemon to Rainer for Vaporeon, Pyro for Flareon and Sparky for Jolteon.


This trick can also be seen in this video, and it has been confirmed by several users at the Pokemon GO subreddit, so it is definitely legit.

However, some users have reported that the evolution only applies for the first Eevee and doesn’t seem to take place for the second evolved Eevee.

Pokemon GO has proven to be a smash hit for Nintendo and developer Niantic Labs. It still hasn’t been released in Asia or other countries aside from North America, UK, Germany, Spain and Italy, but it is already trending as the top game on Google’s Play Store and Apple’s iOS Store.
