The last update Pokemon from Generation 4 has rolled out in the famous augmented reality (AR) game, Pokemon Go. The optimization comes with two evolutions for Eevee, namely Leafeon and Glaceon. Leafeon and Glaceon have grass and icy traits respectively, enabling players to exploit Eevee’s abilities, and have first been seen in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
There are two specific ways players can evolve Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon in Pokemon Go. Continue reading to find out which they are.
Pokemon Go: How to Evolve Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon
Evolve Eevee by Using A Lure Module
Perhaps the most apparent method to evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon is the Lure Module. These modules are at the moment only accessible from the game’s store for 200 coins each. Just buy whichever one you want and use it on a close PokeStop. You’ll see that it will attract particular kinds of Pokemon to your region, but select one of your Eevees. Click on the button which indicates that you’re all set, and you will see Eevee develop into your selected evolution.
A few players claimed that they encountered an issue where the module didn’t give Eevee the evolution. However, ensure that the evolution tab is showing a new evolution before you click on it, instead of showing the Eevee question mark sign.
Also, something else to note about the Lure Module: it acts like all the other versions of the game. This means that you can enter in the neighboring PokeStop and use it on your Eevee if another player used it there. Other players can use your module as well.
Niantic announced that the modules would later be accessible through unique research challenges, so if you don’t want to spend the 200, you can wait until the modules are available.
Evolve Eevee in Pokemon Go by Using Its Names
The two evolutions can be acquired by dubbing your Eevee a unique name. This option, however, can only be used once. To activate the trick, you’ll need to change the name of one of your Eevees before evolving it. Just select an Eevee and click on the pencil symbol, then write one of these nicknames:
- To get Leafeon, name your Eevee ‘Linnea’
- To get Glaceon, name your Eevee ‘Rea’
After performing this trick in Pokemon Go, the evolution button will show the silhouette of your selected Eevee evolution. Click on the button to transfer the 25 Eevee candy, and you’re set.
