Guide: Pokemon Go has a new Eevee evolution trick for Umbreon and Espeon

0

'Tamao' and 'Sakura' respectively

Remember the Pokemon Go Eevee trick where you could get a specific evolution based on names from the TV show (Rainer for Vaporeon, Sparky for Jolteon, Pyro for Flareon)? Well it's back alongside of the Generation 2 update that hit this week.

All you have to do is name your Eevee "Sakura" if you want to evolve it into an Espeon, or "Tamao" if you want an Umbreon. That's it! As per the previous trick you can only use it once before it randomizes from then on -- so make sure you have your perfect creature before you pull the trigger.

Seeing little Easter eggs like this helps make the game shine a little bit, even if it has a lot of the glaring issues it's had since launch -- like a wonky gym system and a lack of real head-to-head PVP and trading.
