Eevee is one of the cutest and more popular Pokemon in the first generation. The most special thing about this adorable Pokemon is that it can evolve into many other different Pokemon depending on the method that you are using.


If you are an experienced Pokemon trainer from the first generation, you already know that Eevee had only three evolutions back then. Everything depended on the evolution stone you used on it.

  • Water Stone = Vaporeon
  • Thunder Stone = Jolteon
  • Flame Stone = Flareon

This was a huge dilemma among the first Pokemon trainers. You only got one Eevee during the whole game on the first Pokemon games.

The Right Way to Evolve Eevee on Pokemon Go

After playing Pokemon Go for a while, you might have noticed that the items we just talked about, the water stone, thunder stone, and flame stone, are not available on this mobile app.

You can evolve your Eevee by using Pokemon Candies just as you would do with any other Pokemon. This will give you at random one of the three possible Eevee evolutions from the first generation: A Vaporeon, a Jolteon or a Flareon.

However, there is a secret trick to get the evolution that you want for your Eevee. The only thing you need to do is to rename your Eevee!

This trick comes from the anime series, on the episode when the main characters meet a group of brothers who have different Eevee evolutions.

  • Rainer = Vaporeon
  • Sparky = Jolteon
  • Pyro = Flareon

As the Pokemon Go servers are unstable sometimes, we recommend you to restart your app after changing the name of your Eevee. Do this action before using the candies to evolve your Pokemon.
