Pokemon GO Eevee Evolution: How To Evolve To Become Both Espeon & Umbreon

By on

One of the most interesting creatures in Pokemon GO is Eevee, especially with all of its evolutions. In the upcoming generation 2 update, the amazing cute Pokemon will have two more transformations, Espeon and Umbreon. So, find out here how to evolve yours into one of those.

It can be recalled that in the first gen of the Pokemon, which the game is currently featuring, there are only three Eeveelutions – Jolteon, Flareon and Vaporeon. According to reports, you just have to rename your Eevee to have one of those. Naming your creature Pyro will turn it into a Flareon, Rainer for Vaporeon, and Sparky for a Jolteon. However, it would not be that simple if you want an Espeon and Umbreon.

The two additional evolution for Eevee is said to be included in the generation 2 update and there are specific things you need to do to evolve your Pokemon into one. First, for both Espeon and Umbreon, you will have to walk a lot with your Eevee to develop your friendship with it and reach a higher player level.

Once you have reached high levels of friendship and happiness during daytime or in the morning, with a Sun Shard around, your Eevee will become an Espeon. On the other hand, if the certain level of friendship is reached during night time, with a Moon Shard around, your creature will turn into an Umbreon.

On the other hand, there are speculations that there would be other ways to make your Eevee evolve in Pokemon GO. According to Vine Report, trainers just have to feed a lot of Pokemon candy to make them stronger and increase their combat points. Once it reaches a certain level, it would again evolve, depending on the time of the day – day for Espeon, night for Umbreon.

Meanwhile, aside from the two upcoming Eeveelution, gamers across the globe are also looking forward to getting their hands on Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon. The first two are generation 4 creatures, while the third one comes from the sixth gen. But, it is still not clear whether or not they will be included in the upcoming update.

Speaking of the second gen, its release is expected to happen in early 2017. However, there are speculations that it would be available before this year ends. So, let us just wait for further announcements from Niantic. Once released, expect a lot of new Pokemon like Chikorita, Totodile and Cyndaquil.
