For those of you that have watched the tv series, played any of the games, or traded Pokemon cards you will know that Eevee can evolve into one of three elemental Pokemon.
The Pokemon your Eevee evolves into is supposed to be totally random in Pokemon Go, however, players have been wondering if there is a way to choose which evolution Eevee will take.
After a few failed attempts at trying to find methods to achieve the evolution of your choice, the players of Reddit seemed to have found a method that works. This method was then confirmed by John Hanke, the chief executive officer of the company responsible for getting Pokemon Go on your phone, Niantic Labs.
It’s a really simple process, all you have to do is rename the Eevee you wish to evolve before pressing the evolution button. To do this head into your Pokemon collection, tap the Eevee and then tap the pen icon above its name.
