During the Pokemon GO panel in San Diego Comic-Con, Niantic revealed that the Eevee name hack is legitimate. Not only did they confirm this, but the developers also pointed out that there are even more Easter eggs that the fans haven’t found yet, which should make fans of the mobile game more interested in it.
Some fans thought that it was a coincidence, but the developers in Niantic confirmed the news during their Comic-Con panel, according to Cnet. This means fans have a surefire way to get their favorite Eeveelution, which is good news. Fans who don’t like these nicknames can always rename them afterward.
For those unfamiliar with the Pokemon GO name hack, players can get Flareon, Vaporeon and Jolteon by nicknaming their Eevee with these names: Pyro (Flareon), Rainer (Vaporeon) and Sparky (Jolteon). This was done as a tribute to the animated series when Ash encountered the Eevee brothers on his journey to be the very best that no one ever was.
Eevee has been the subject of many a topic for players of the mobile game, which isn’t a huge surprise. To this date, Eevee still has the most evolutions in Pokemon history, and fans are hoping to see more of them if Niantic ever decides to bring Pokemon from other generations in the mobile title.
As for the other Easter eggs in the game, Niantic was very hush hush about them, merely stating that the fans haven’t discovered them yet. This should be an interesting way to get fans to play the game, and they might even try using different nicknames for their Pokemon to see the effects. It looks like there are more things to do after catching them all, until the game is ready for a worldwide release.
Pokemon GO is available on iOS and Android devices for certain countries. Fans in America, New Zealand or the other countries can play the mobile title if their account is in one of the aforementioned countries. Aside from that, other players will have to be patient and wait for the game.
