It’s easier than you think.

Recommended Videos

Sylveon is one of Eevee’s most popular evolutions, and fans are always dying to get their hands on this cute Fairy-type Pokemon. However, this is not gen one anymore, where players can just go to a Poke Store, buy a stone, and give it to Eevee to evolve. Though, just like its predecessors, Sylveon has its special evolution requirements. Let’s talk about getting Sylveon in Pokemon GO.

There are two ways of evolving Eevee into a Sylveon in Pokemon GO: the infamous Name trick and the traditional one.

The name trick involves renaming an Eevee to evolve it. As for Sylveon, you need to rename it, Kira. Please note that you need to ensure that the silhouette you see on the Eevee’s evolve button is that of Sylveon; otherwise, it will evolve to another form. The evolution will cost 25 Eevee candies. The name trick will only work once, so if you want more Sylveons, you must go for the traditional route.

The traditional route is more challenging than the name trick. It requires a lot of steps, literally. If you want to evolve an Eevee to a Sylveon using the traditional method, you need to make your Eevee your buddy and earn 70 hearts. Getting hearts is the most challenging part because you need to do activities with your buddy to gain more.

How to get more hearts in Pokemon GO?

  • Walk with them
  • Give them treats such as Berry or Poffin
  • Play together
  • Battle together
  • Take a photo in AR mode
  • Visit a new place

You can only earn 12 hearts per day, so more or less, you’ll need six days to evolve your Eevee to a Sylveon. And of course, the 25 Eevee candies are still needed for the evolution.
