Pikachu is perhaps the most renowned Pokémon, even though Eevee has undergone the most “Eeveelutions,” or popular and highly sought-after Pokémon, in the series.
Eevee’s method of evolution makes it one of the most distinct Pokémon out of all of them. While there are many fascinating ways for individual Pokémon to evolve, Eevee is among the few species that can change in several ways, each producing a different ally based on what you do. Each of the eight Pokémon that Eevee can develop into can be obtained in another way, depending on the game.
This article will guide and show you how to acquire each Eevee evolution and provide advice on capturing and breeding Eevee for competitive combat.
Sword and Shield Evolutions of Eevee
The first and most important thing to know is what kind of evolutions are available for Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield. All these evolutions are mentioned below:
- Sylveon (Fairy evolution)
- Espeon (Psychic evolution)
- Glaceon (Ice evolution)
- Umbreon (Dark evolution)
- Jolteon (Electric evolution)
- Vaporeon (Water evolution)
- Leafeon (Grass evolution)

How to Capture Eevee?
In Pokemon Sword and Shield, Route 4 offers the chance to catch an Eevee. Though it’s uncommon, you’ll occasionally run into it in the real world! The Gigantamax gift Eevee you receive for possessing Let’s Go Eevee saved data won’t evolve, so be aware of that!
Catching a Hidden Ability Eevee requires participating in a rare Max Raid Battle. In the Bridge Field of the Wild Area, look for a den with a purple glow and clouds.
Where to Capture Eevee?
Go to Route 4 anytime if you want to see a wild Eevee. In the tall yellow grass around the region, Level 14-16 Eevee can be found with a rate of 1% (Sword) and 5% (Shield). Because of their slow spawn rate, it can take a few tries before you come across an Eevee in combat.
How to Evolve Eevee?
It is relatively simple to evolve Eevee to one of its various evolutions. However, each requires a separate set of steps from you, most of which rely upon using an evolution stone.
Here is a list of Eevees that evolve with the help of stones:
- Leafeon – Leaf stone
- Flareon – Firestone
- Vaporeon – Water stone
- Jolteon – Thunderstone
- Glaceon – Ice stone
Now that we know the generic method of evolution of Eeves let’s discuss them in detail.
Evolution to Sylveon
Sylveon, as mentioned above, is a Fairy-like evolution of Eevee that was introduced in Pokemon X and Y. When Eevee reaches level cap with maximum Friendship (three hearts) and learns a fairy-type move, it develops into Sylveon.

A Pokémon of the Ice type with great defense and special attack, Glacon can have either the abilities Snow Cloak or Ice Body (Hidden). You are no longer required to take it to a site with an Ice Rock, and giving it an Ice stone will result in its evolution.

Evolution to Umbreon
The Dark-type Evee evolution was first presented in Pokemon Gold and Silver. When Eevee reaches maximum Friendship during the evening, it transforms into Umbreon.
