How to Choose Your Eevee Evolution in Pokémon GO

Eevee can currently evolve into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon, and usually this evolution is randomly determined.

However, there is a way to force Eevee to evolve into the evolution you want!

If you rememer the Eevee brothers from the original Anime, you'll recall that their names were Rainer, Pyro, and Sparky, and that they had a Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon respectively.

It turns out, if you name your Eevee Rainer, it has a 100% chance of evolving into Vaporeon, if you name it Pyro it will evolve into Flareon, and naming it Sparky will force it to evolve into Jolteon.

This is a great trick to choose the evolution you want! Note: It is a good idea to close your app after naming your Eevee and reopen it before evolving, as sometimes changes don't get pushed to the server right away.

Special thanks to TheAztek and smithnigel for finding this secret!
