PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

I’ve recently become the League Champion in Pokémon LeafGreen, and I’m using my copy of Sapphire to obtain all of the Gen 3 Eeveelutions. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to wind any good guides or strategies for evolving an Umbreon. I understand the basics, I’m just looking for a more detailed plan.

There were, however, some time-based functions in the games. For example, Shoal Cave's water level would change every six hours, at 3:00 and 9:00 a.m. and p.m. (03:00, 09:00, 15:00, 21:00). Just the same, Eevee would be able to evolve into Espeon if the in-game time was between 12:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. (12:00 - 23:59). Eevee would be able to evolve into Umbreon if the in-game time was between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 a.m. (00:00 - 11:59).

So you need to first make sure you're doing this in Sapphire, not LeafGreen. To raise Eevee's friendship, you should give it a soothe bell. Then feed it 22 EV berries or 36 vitamins (costs 352,800) and level it up at night. Don't let Eevee faint or use herbs on it. (letting it hold herbs is okay)
