'Pokmon GO' Eevee Evolution guide: trick to transform Eevee into Vaporeon, Flareon or Jolteon


Augmented reality game “Pokmon GO” continues to experience critical success since its worldwide release earlier this month. Players who may be wondering how to evolve their captured Eevee into different elemental Pokmon may follow the several guides given by fellow gamers online.

According to various reports, Eevee has three distinct evolution types that constitute to different powerful elemental variants such as Vaporeon for water, Flareon for Fire and Jolteon for electric. Players can apparently control the transformation process and get the result they are looking for.

Nintendo Everything revealed that a simple trick to achieve such is to give a specific nickname to the Pokmon. To do this, players will have to tap on the pencil icon next to the character to edit the description. To have Vaporeon, players should name it Rainer, for Flareon the name should be Pyro, and for Jolteon, choose Sparky to nab it.

Longtime fans of the franchise may remember that the given names originally belong to the Eevee Brothers who were first introduced in the classic adapted anime. Rainer, Pyro and Sparky owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon, respectively.

A step-by-step video has also been shared in YouTube for those who may want a follow through guide. It is noted that gamers should make sure that the spelling of the coded nickname is correct. It is also important that the first character of the name is capitalized.

Afterwards, the official game must be restarted for the changes to take effect. It is believed that the said hack has a 100 percent success rate for those who’ve tried it.

If the user wants to have the three types of Eevee Pokmon in their arsenal, they have to find three Eevees which cost 25 candy each. Once they have changed into their more advanced versions, they can no longer transform into a different type.

“Pokmon GO” is currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and will be rolling out in several other countries. It is available for both Android and iOS smartphones.
