HOW TO EVOLVE EEVEE INTO UMBREON – POKEMON GO
The day has finally arrived! 80 new Pokemon from generation 2 have been added into Pokemon GO and the update is rolling out across the world now.
The new Pokemon include new Eevee evolutions for you to attempt to get. As was the case with generation one Eevee evolutions (Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon), you can call your Eevee a specific name that ensures your evolution will be the one you are hoping for.
To evolve your Eevee in Espeon in Pokemon GO, you need to name your Eevee ‘Sakura’ before you evolve. Once you have done so, just evolve and your Eevee will turn into Espeon. Keep in mind that this trick usually only works the first time.
The other way of getting this Pokemon when evolving your Eevee is to simply press evolve and hope that the result is Espeon. It is all about luck and you simply have to keep your fingers crossed. It would be best to go with the first option and be certain of what your Eevee will become.
In the Pokemon Gold and Silver games, Espeon would be acquired by raising your friendship level with Eevee, and then evolving it during the daytime. It wielded strong Psychic type moves that you’ll no doubt enjoy in Pokemon GO.
Now that you know how to evolve you Eevee into Espeon, be sure to check our Pokemon GO wiki guide for more tips, tricks, and guides.
