The shiny Eevees are out in force for Pokemon GO Eevee Community Day. It is giving trainers around the world an elusive prize: a full collection of all 9 Eevee family shinies. But to get Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Umbreon, Espeon, Leafeon, Sylveon, and Eevee, a couple of tricks are to be used to make it happen. Here’s how to do that.
The simplest way is to just change your Pokemon’s nickname. Each evolution has one nickname attached to it, and you can use that to guarantee a single evolution. So if one trick on a given account is used it won’t work again. So while this will likely be less useful for most, here are those:
- Flareon: Pyro
- Jolteon: Sparky
- Vaporeon: Rainer
- Umbreon: Tamao
- Espeon: Sakura
- Leafeon: Linnea
- Glaceon: Rea
- Sylveon: Kira
After that, a more involved method for forcing the evolution is there.Here are those:
- Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon: These ones are pure RNG, so best of luck.
- Umbreon: Walk an Eevee 10km as your buddy, then evolve it at night while it’s still your buddy.
- Espeon: Walk an Eevee 10km as your buddy, then evolve it during the day while it’s still your buddy.
- Leafeon: In this, you have to Evolve an Eevee near a mossy lure—it doesn’t need to be your own.
- Glaceon: Evolve an Eevee near a glacial lure. Any lure will do
- Sylveon: Normally, you have to acquire 70 buddy hearts with Eevee as your buddy.

You can choose which evolution form to evolve your Eevee into by naming it Sakura (Espeon), Tamao (Umbreon), Pyro (Flareon), Rainer (Vaporeon) or Sparky (Jolteon). This is an Easter egg allusion to the original anime series’ trainers and the Eevee Brothers. It is important to note that you must use a capital first letter and lower case names. Although Espeon and Umbreon could only be obtained during the day in Pokemon Gold and Silver, this is not the case in Pokemon Go. Each evolution can be attained at any time of day. For each of the five names, this will only work once. After that, no matter what you call your Eevee, it will evolve at random.

How do I find a Shiny POKEMON GO Eevee?
Community Day events have a heightened Shiny rate for the featured Pokémon. So if you’re playing, you will find several Shiny Eevee. In case you don’t have time to play all day, you can find a Shiny Eevee by popping an Incense, and tapping each Eevee that pops up. The Shiny rate on Community Days is approximately 1 in 25 ( according to The Silph Road’s research) so it is easier to find a Shiny Eevee quickly.
EEVEE EVOLUTION NAMES
A naming trick is involved to get the Eevee Evolution, but it only works once per evolution. The names are as follows:
POKEMON GO EEVEE EVOLUTION NAMES
Without the naming trick, it is difficult to get names. Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon all evolve randomly when you evolve an Eevee. You need to walk with Umbreon and Espeon as your buddy Pokémon for 10 kilometers, and then evolved them during the night and day, respectively. You can only obtain Leafeon and Glaceon when they’re evolved near a Mossy or Glacial Lure, respectively. Sylveon normally requires earning 70 hearts as your buddy Pokémon, but this number has been reduced to 7 for the event.
