Even though it isn’t a rare Pokmon, many consider Eevee to be one of the most versatile Pokmon in “Pokmon GO,” thanks to its ability to evolve itself into five different forms: Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Espeon, and Umbreon.
It has been a while now since the game’s release and enthusiastic Pokmon trainers have found a trick that can help them control Eevee’s evolution path. Fans of the original Pokmon anime in the 90s may remember the Eevee brothers, Sparky, Pyro, and Rainer.
Enthusiasts found out that by renaming Eevee, they can actually control the evolutionary path of the Pokmon. It’s actually quite easy. If a player wants a Jolteon, simply rename Eevee to Sparky. For a Flareon, change the name to Pyro. And finally, for a Vaporeon, gamers can change Eevee’s name to Rainer.
Before players evolve their Eevee, they should also know the strengths and weaknesses of each evolution.
According to Mobile & Apps, the fire-type Flareon has the slowest moveset among the three; however, it has the highest base attack. Flareon is also weak against water-type Pokmon. The Jolteon is strong against water-type Pokmon, but it is still the weakest among the three. The Vaporeon has a balanced attack and defense stat, and it also has the highest stamina among the three.
The last two evolutions are a little more difficult. Pokmon trainers who plan to evolve their Eevee into Espeon and Umbreon will have to do a lot of walking and be in a higher player level. The evolutions are also time dependent. One must evolve an Eevee into Espeon during daytime, while players have to wait until nighttime to evolve their Eevee into an Umbreon.
Niantic, the developer of the game, has revealed that they internationally made the cheats for players to discover, and acknowledged that there are still more to discover.
