How to evolve Pokemon GO Eevee into Espeon 2021

Pokemon Go Eevee - thenewsregion.com

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.

Can you randomly evolve Pokemon Go Eevee into Espeon?

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.

Pokemon Go Eevee Community Day guide

Pokémon Go is all set to host its second Eevee Community Day. This will span over a weekend from Aug. 13-16, 2021. This Pokémon Go Eevee Community Day guide lists out the perks of Eevee’s Community Day. This includes the exclusive moves Eevee’s evolutions learn and also the ways to make the most of your Community Day.

Several event perks are available from Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. until Aug. 16 at 1 p.m. EDT. Special attacks are included in this. The Eevee evolutions learn and special Timed Research Tasks.  Sylveon will only require seven hearts to evolve instead of 70, during this period.

Increased spawn and Shiny rate (The usual community day perks) will be active on Aug. 14 and Aug. 15 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. in your local time.

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.


A naming trick is involved to get the Eevee Evolution, but it only works once per evolution. The names are as follows:


Eevee Evolution Name/Nickname
Jolteon Sparky
Flareon Pyro
Vaporeon Rainer
Espeon Sakura
Umbreon Tamao
Leafeon Linnea
Glaceon Rea
Sylveon Kira

Without the naming trick, it is difficult to get names. FlareonJolteon, 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.


When evolved any time from Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. until Aug. 16 at 1 p.m. EDT, following things will be learned by Eve evolutions-

  • Vaporeon: Scald
  • Jolteon: Zap Cannon
  • Flareon: Superpower
  • Espeon: Shadow Ball
  • Umbreon: Psychic
  • Leafeon: Bullet Seed
  • Glaceon: Water Pulse
  • Sylveon: Psyshock

Also, any Eevee caught or hatched during the event will be the Last Resort.

If you miss the Community Day period, you’ll likely be able to evolve your Eevee during the December Community Weekend event to get its respective move.

For raiding purposes you’ll want Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon. The best raid movesets for them are as follows:

  • Leafeon: Razor Leaf and Leaf Blade
  • Glaceon: Frost Breath and Avalanche
  • Sylveon: Charm and Dazzling Gleam

For PvP purposes, you’ll want an Umbreon and Sylveon for the differing tiers. Their best movesets are as follows:

  • Umbreon: Snarl with Last Resort and Foul Play
  • Sylveon: Charm and Psyshock and Moonblast

 Last Resort can be replaced on Umbreon with Psychic to win some matchups.


On the Eevee community day, Eggs will hatch in 14 the usual time. If you put them in an Incubator during the event period, you must definitely hatch any long-distance eggs you have to hold on to. The incense used during the event will also last for three hours, so you should use one (if you have one). This is to increase your Eevee spawns further.
