Someone Figured Out How To Choose Your Eevee's Evolution In Pokémon Go

Waiting on a Jolteon, Flareon, or Vaporeon? This trick might work for you.

Pokémon Go has been out for about a week, but there's still a lot to learn. Among the major mysteries is this: How can you choose your Eevee's evolution?

In the original game, giving your Eevee a stone would determine its element type. But in Pokémon Go, it's been seemingly random.

However, one clever Redditor seems to have figured out the trick, and it's a clever nod to these three guys.

The trick is simple: Name your Eevee after one of the trainers, and you'll get the corresponding evolution.

So depending on what you want, you should name them like this:

Sparky will get you a Jolteon

Rainer will get you a Vaporeon

Pyro will get you a Flareon

Make sure you spell everything right, as some users have found that they made typos and ended up with a random evolution!

The method hasn't been 100 percent confirmed, but thus far the results are promising.
