[Newsa] Pokémon GO -- How to Evolve Your Eevee Into Vaporeon, Flareon, or Jolteon

C Realtime
Eevee is an adorable fox-like Pokémon who has the potential to evolve into one of three other Pokémon: Vaporeon (a Water-type), Flareon (a Fire-type), and Jolteon (an Electric-type). Pokémon GO also lets you capture Eevees and evolve them into their elemental alter-egos. In regular Pokémon games, you evolve Eevee according to different rulesets (using elemental stones, achieving target stats, etc). In Pokémon GO, your Eevee's evolution seems to be random – but one redditor, smithnigel , believes they've found an almost guaranteed way to evolve your Eevee into the form you want. Interestingly, the method calls back to an older episode of the Pokémon anime series called The Battling Eevee Brothers . Simply put, the name you give your Eevee seems to directly affect its "Eeveelution." Here's what to do: 1) Capture an Eeevee, if you haven't already. 2) Tap the pencil icon next to the word "Eevee" to change its name. 3) If you want a Flareon, name the Eevee "Pyro." 4) If you want a Jolteon, name the Eevee "Sparky." 5) If you want a Vaporeon, name the Eevee "Rainer." When you've finished re-naming your Eevee, quit the Pokemon GO app completely and re-start it to make sure the name registers to the game's servers. When you re-open the Pokémon GO app, enter the Pokémon menu and hit "Evolve" to meet your new and improved Eevee. Don't forget, you need enough Eevee candy to make the evolution. It's not yet clear if Niantic programmed this particular method of Eeveelution to pay tribute to the Pokémon anime, or if it's just an amusing coincidence and a quirk of Pokémon GO's random number generator. Either way, it looks like the name you give your Eevee affects how it evolves. The success rate for this method of Eeveelution is quite high, though there still seem to be exceptions and caveats.
