If you play Pokemon Go, the chances are you’re aware of how many Eevee evolutions are out there. The Normal-type Pokemon can evolve into eight different variants, all with different powers, abilities, and types. It can be a random process, but there are some little hints to help affect which Eevee evolution you get. To help decide which Eevee evolution you want, we’ve broken down all the options.
Strongest Eevee Evolutions in Pokemon Go
If you go off maximum Combat Power potential, then the strongest evolution is Espeon. This Psychic-type evolution can grow to a maximum CP of 3583. To evolve into an Espeon, you have to nickname it ‘Sakura’ before pressing Evolve. The second strongest is Glaceon, an Ice-type that first emerged in the Sinnoh region. It’s also quite new to Pokemon Go, having only entered the game in mid-2020. It has a max CP of 3535, and has the evolution nickname of ‘Rea.’
In third place is Vaporeon, the Water-type, which has a maximum CP of 3521. As with Espeon, you need to name your Eevee ‘Rainer’ before evolving to get Vaporeon. The middle-ranking Eevee is Flareon, a Fire-type that was one of the first Eeveelutions. With a CP max of 3424, it’s a fearsome threat for Grass-type enemies. To evolve Eevee into Flareon, nickname it ‘Pyro’.
The fifth-strongest is Sylveon, a Fairy-type evolution that was introduced in the Galar era of Pokemon games. Its max CP of 3470 is still respectable, despite ranking lower on the list. Its evolution nickname is ‘Kira’. Next is Leafeon, the Grass-type that has a max CP of 3328. It has a lot of type-based weaknesses, which is a problem – but if you want it, name your Eevee ‘Linnea’.
In seventh place is Jolteon, the Electric-type Pokemon that has a solid overall CP of 3265. While Electric-types can be difficult to get super effective hits with, the max CP makes up for this. Nickname your Eevee ‘Sparky’ to get this one. The weakest is Umbreon, the black-and-white Dark-type. It can reach a CP of 2416, which is considerably lower than the other types in the game. To get Umbreon, nickname your Eevee ‘Tamao’ before evolving.
Those are all the Eevee evolutions in Pokemon Go, and as you can see, they’re all pretty strong.
