Are you obsessed with Pokemon GO and can’t wait for your Eevee to evolve? Well, there’s an eevee-lution taking place! Niantic confirmed at SDCC that there’s a trick for manipulating the critter into evolving three different ways! Learn more after the jump!
Say you’ve managed to catch a slippery little Eevee somewhere out in the wild, and you’re just sick of biting your nails, wondering what it’s going to evolve into. Surely by now, you know that Eevee’s got a few big brothers! Pokemon GO creators Niantic confirmed during a July 24 panel at San Diego Comic-Con that yes, the rumors are true: you can control the way Eevee evolves — and it’s really simple!
All you have to do is name your Eevee after one of the brothers from the Pokemon cartoon. Easy peasy! Name it Sparky, get Jolteon, Rainer to get Vaporeon, or Pyro to get Flareon. So that means you’ve got to stop naming your Pokemon crazy and funny things. If you’ve got a captured Eevee named Butter Face (seen it) or something else bizarre, it’s not Niantic’s fault that you didn’t get the Vaporeon you were dying for. Sorry, kiddos!
Pokemon GO is a worldwide phenomenon. In the few short weeks that it’s even been available to play, users have become downright addicted, people have lost their jobs, fallen off cliffs, gotten in car crashes and completely ignored Beyonce, all in the name of Catching Them All. It’s getting that serious.
In fact, you can also fulfill all the dreams of your 10-year-old self and find the love of your life on PokeDates. Yes, that would be a dating app for Pokemon GO lovers. If you want to go on a “pokedate,” you sign up online and share your training schedule so you can find someone compatible.
