As you may have noticed, the Goos3D team are pretty caught up in Pokémon GO right now. We are working on a comprehensive guide but have happened upon a nice little easter egg online that will be of interest to all you budding trainers out there.
Niantic have not been afraid to include to cap tipping to earlier versions of the game and TV series. Eevee is one of the most unique Pokémon in the franchise as it has various possible evolution paths, with possible evolutions including Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon and Sylveon. One guy on Reddit has discovered how you can gain a little bit of control over the evolution of your Eevee.
Does anyone remember the Eevee brothers? Rainer, Pyro and Sparky? Well each of these trainers has their own evolution of Eevee aligned to their character: Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon. Essentially the hack is this, nickname our Eevee with the correlating name of the evolution you are looking for and restart the game (granted the server may not like this) Boom. If you name your Eevee Sparky, you’ll get you a Jolteon, Rainer will get you a Vaporeon, and Pyro will get you a Flareon.
We haven’t come across our own Eevee yet, but there are widespread reports that this works. Did it work for you? Let us know on Facebook where you can also find out about our Pokémon GO lure drop in Dublin City Centre.
