Eevee is much different over the other Gen 1 Pokémon. Instead of a linear evolution as normal, its Eevee-lution is now split. That means every time you tap on the Evolve button, it will appear random chances if you get a fire-type Flareon, water-type Vaporeon, or electric-type Jolteon.
You are only able to force Eevee to evolve into each of its split evolutions, guaranteed one of three: Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon. All you have to do is use the magnificent easter egg.
Remember to rename the Eevee to evolve after the name of its trainer
- Sparkyfor Jolteon
- Pyrofor Flareon
- Rainer for Vaporeon.
Don’t forget that it just works once for each. After that, you’ll be back to random chance. Choose wisely to pick the highest stat (IV) and highest CP Eevee.
As the Vaporeon is the most powerful Eevee-lution in the game, and only Jolteon can counter Vaporeon, make your first and second best!
