This Secret Pokémon GO Trick Guarantees Eevee's Evolutions
You can make Eevee evolve into Umbreon and Espeon using this hack.
If your local park offers up nothing but thousands of yawn-yawn-so-boring Eevees pay attention: this Pokémon Go trick is going to blow your mind.
According to reports from gamers everywhere, you can influence which Pokémon your Eevee evolves into by renaming them as characters from the anime series.
Yes, really. See? Told you it was mindblowing!
This isn’t the first time the naming trick has worked, of course; last year we learned of three other Eevee-lutions we could manipulate using particular names. But this is the first time we’ve known that evolutions can bring us Espeon and Umbreon.
So: here’s what you need to do.
If you'd like an Espeon, you need to name your Eevee "Sakura". To evolve into an Umbreon, you need to name the Eevee "Tamao". Once you’ve renamed them, you must restart your app and bang… apparently, the evolutions are “guaranteed” to work.
Right now the trick only seems to work once on each of these two occasions, but gamers everywhere are confirming that this really works!
It was recently announced 80 - 80!!! - new Pokémon are coming to the hit mobile game, as well as a selection of special pink Pokémon available over Valentine’s Day.
