Pokemon Go 'Eevee Trick' Guide: How To Evolve Eevee To Umbreon, Espeon & More With Nickname 'cheat'

There is a trick to make Eevee evolve into Umbreon and Espeon.

On Thursday evening, Niantic unleashed 80 new creatures into the world of Pokemon Go. Among these new creatures are two new evolutions for Eevee, which was previously capable of evolving into Flareon (Fire type), Jolteon (Electric type) and Vaporeon (Water type). The two new forms — Espeon (Psychic type) and Umbreon (Dark type) — are sure to be two of the most popular Pokemon of the update, so you’re probably wondering how you can ensure your Eevee evolves into one or the other. Thankfully, there’s a trick.

  • Name Eevee “Sakura” to evolve it into Espeon
  • Name Eevee “Tamao” to evolve it into Umbreon

Like Pyro, Sparky and Rainer, the names Sakura and Tamao are references to the Pokemon anime series. Sakura and Tamao are two of the five Kimono sisters, and you can probably guess what their Pokemon of choice are. It’s a neat callback for long-time fans of the series and a welcome shortcut for players who want to add all of the new Johto region Pokemon to their Pokedex as quickly as possible.
