The Name Trick:

In Pokémon GO, the nickname trick is the most trusted trick to evolve your Eevee.

The game strictly follows the mainstream of the anime, and hence Eevee can only evolve with the help of Eevee candy. Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon are the three significant evolutionary forms of Eevee.

You can always use this name trick to evolve your Eevee to the specific form you want. However, you can use it only once.

How Does This Work?

This trick is all about assigning a specific name to your Eevee.

Let me break down the procedure into simple steps, which will guarantee your Eevee’s evolution.

Step 1: Go to your inventory or Pokedex and select Eevee.

Step 2: Change the name of Eevee to Rainer so that Eevee can evolve into Vaporeon.

Step 3: After changing the name, hit the evolve button to complete the process.

And that’s about it.

To get the specific evolution forms, you need to use certain nicknames.

Nicknames That Guarantee Eevee Evolutions:

  • Jolteon – to get Jolteon to rename Eevee to Sparky.
  • Umbreon – rename Eevee to Tamao and evolve it to Umbreon.
  • Flareon – renaming Eevee to Pyro evolves it to Flareon.
  • Vaporeon – change Eevee’s name to Rainer to get Vaporeon.
  • Glaceon – to get Glaceon to rename Eevee to Rea.
  • Espeon – rename your Eevee to Sakura to make it evolve into Espeon.
  • Leafeon – change the name to Linnea to make it evolve into Leafeon.

The nicknames of the original evolutions like Glaceon, Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon are about the Eevee brothers.


This trick is one of the sure-fire ways to update Eevee to a form you want, and you can use this only once in the game.

The Lure Module:

After the massive update in May 2017, the Pokémon Company introduced a set of evolution items known as Lure Modules. These are to be activated at the pokestops. When activated, it remains active for 30 minutes.

There are three types of lure modules you will get to see in the game:  

Mossy Lure:

When you activate the mossy lure, it begins to attract all the grass-type Pokémon around.

Glacial Lure:

When you activate the mossy lure, it begins to attract all the water and ice-type Pokémon.

Magnetic Lure:

The same goes with this one too, and the only difference is; when you activate the magnetic lure, it starts to attract all electric-type, rock-type, and Steel-type Pokémon.

These lure modules work efficiently, and if you are lucky enough, you may have an encounter with an Exotic Pokémon.

These lures come in handy evolving Eevee into Leafeon, Glaceon.


Once you activate the lure modules, do not leave the place. Stay in range. Then only you will be able to catch Pokémon.

The Verdict:

The Name trick is among the best sure-fire methods that can guarantee your Eevee’s evolution to that particular form you want. The name trick asks you to rename your Eevee with its evolution names like (Rainer for Vaporeon) and hit the evolve button. It is that easy. Also, you have the buddy trick under your sleeve. Besides, to evolve Eevee to other forms, you like Glaceon and Leafeon and use the lure modules.

About the nickname trick, it is for one-time use. After using, you cannot use the same method again, but if you wish, you can always trade Pokémon with other players or your friends. And don’t forget to keep the deal fair and square when trading.

Good luck, Trainer!
