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.

Posted on

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

Some users thought it might be dependent on the Eevee's move list, but that theory has been debunked.

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

That's Rainer, Sparky, and Pyro, three trainers from the original anime who each owned their own Eeveelution.

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.
