I understand how evolution works in GO — get x amount of candies and then evolve. But Eevee can evolve into 3 different Pokémon in Gen 1. Do you get to pick which Eeveelution to choose? Is it random?

By exposing it to either high amounts of:

- electric or static energy (for Jolteon)

- a volcano (for Flareon)

- some water (for Vapereon)

Hope you liked my 10/10 guide.
But… but… aren't all of those supereffective against phone-types?
Yes, so be warned.

Actually, yes. There is a way to choose which eeveelution you get.

Just before evolving your Eevee, nickname it:

"Rainer" for Vaporeon

"Sparky" for Jolteon

"Pyro" for Flareon

Hope I helped!

On your quest to catch ’em all in Pokemon GO, you’re going to need to get all of the adorable Eevee’s different evolutions. But how do you choose which evolution you get?

In short, you actually can’t pick what evolution you get. There are three different evolutions in the game so far: Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon. While some players believe that the team you joined may play some part in deciding which one you got (as the colors of the team match the colors of the evolutions), this has quickly been disproven by other players.

Which evolution of Eevee you get is completely down to a roll of the imaginary dice. Don’t worry though, Eevees aren’t too hard to come across in the game, so you can just keep catching and evolving them until you have the full set.

Good Luck Getting The One You Want! :)

Can't you choose by nicknaming them "Rainer", for Vaporeon, "Sparky", for Jolteon, and "Pyro", for Flareon?
Yes you can. It will absolutely force the "eeveelution" to match the name.
