Are you eager to learn how to get Jolteon in Pokemon GO?

Niantic Labs released Eevee and its first three primary eevee-lutions with the base game on July 7, 2016. Of these—Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon—Vaporeon has remained a popular choice among trainers in search of a strong water-type. Flareon, while fluffy and adorable, has been outclassed by other fire-type offensive choices on the battlefield.

So, what about the electric-type, Jolteon?

How to Get Jolteon in Pokemon GO

There's really only one surefire way to "naturally" get a Jolteon in Pokemon GO—with the nickname cheat.

In case some newer trainers have stumbled upon this article, let us explain. All eevee-lutions have a corresponding nickname which, when applied to a chosen Eevee and upon prompting it to evolve, acts as a one-time guarantee trainers will receive that form. Otherwise, evolving Eevee is completely random.

Jolteon's nickname is "Sparky." Its Kanto siblings, Flareon and Vaporeon, are "Pyro" and "Rainer," respectively. This is actually a clever reference to the "Eevee Brothers" in the original anime who each had the eevee-lution associated with their name.

Trainers can also trade among themselves to add a Jolteon to their party of they so choose. However, if this is the most optimal route for them, we encourage all parties involved to take precautions and be sure to protect themselves from scams. Nothing stings more than trading away a prized Pokemon only to get a dud in return.
