How to evolve Eevee into Sylveon in Pokémon GO is an ongoing question still unfulfilled for many trainers. Unfortunately, the sad fact is that Sylveon is not yet available as an evolution in Pokémon Go. Although, given the roll-out of Gen 6 and the inclusion of Kalos region Pokémon's, it won't be much longer until the Fairy-type evolution of Eevee is available.

Despite the fact that Sylveon is not yet applicable as an evolution, Eevee does have many other evolutions: Leafeon, Glaceon, Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon. So, at least you've got options.

How to Evolve Eevee Into Sylveon in Pokémon Go

While Sylveon will probably not appear in Pokémon Go until mid-2021, the process of evolution is sure to be similar to the other Eevee evolutions. So, in case you were unsure as to how they work, we've got it all right here:

  • The easiest approach you can try to guarantee which evolution you want, is that you can use each of the Eevee nicknames to evolve in Pokémon Go. It's a pretty simple process - just rename your Eevee to the corresponding nickname and then use 25 candy to evolve.
  1. Vaporeon: Rainer
  2. Umbreon: Tamao
  3. Flareon: Pyro
  4. Glaceon: Rea
  5. Leafeon: Linnea
  6. Espeon: Sakura
  7. Jolteon: Sparky

However, once you have used a nickname, that's it. You cannot use that nickname again, so think carefully.

  • Unfortunately, for the original evolutions - that's Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon by the way - there is no way of guaranteeing the evolution you want. So simply, you just have to keep catching Eevee's and evolving them (with your 25 candy) with fingers crossed. Somewhat more fortunately, Eevee is not very rare, so it should not take too long.
  • Now, for the next two - Espeon and Umbreon - there is another option after you've used up the nicknames. Step one, add Eevee as your buddy and walk for 10km. If, at this point you evolved your Eevee during the day, it will turn into Espeon, and if you do it at night, it will evolve into Umbreon.
  • Leafeon and Glaceon are some of the latest evolutions to the game, and you can get them with some brand new items. If you've used up the nicknames, you can evolve more by stopping by a Pokestop and getting a Mossy Lure (Leafeon), or a Glacial Lure (Glaceon). Each available for purchase in-game for 200 coins each, they act as normal lures, except in that they attract Pokémon of specific types and allowing the Eevee evolutions.

So, the Fairy-type Sylveon evolution has not yet been seen in Pokémon GO, but at least when it does show up, you'll know what to do. Bonus - a veritable army of Eevee's as you work out how the evolutions behave.
