How to evolve Eevee in Pokémon Let's Go (and where to find one in the wild)

Whether you picked up Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu or Pokémon Let's Go Eevee, you can add your very own Eevee to your Pokédex and you can evolve it into one of the three elemental types; water, fire, or thunder. Once evolved, Eevee will become either Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon. Here's how to evolve it in Pokémon Let's Go!

Can I evolve my starter Eevee in Pokémon Let's Go?

Nope. Sorry. Just like Pikachu, the Eevee you first catch at the start of the game is a stubborn little mon and does not want to evolve. The good news is, your Partner Eevee starts out with higher stats and special moves right out of the gate.

If you want to evolve an Eevee, you'll either have to transfer one from your Pokémon GO game or find one in the wild.

Where do I find Eevee in the wild in Pokémon Let's Go?

There is only one place to find Eevee in the wild in Pokémon Let's Go, and that's Route 17 to the west of Celadon City. Eevee is a super rare Pokémon, so I suggest using a Lure to attract as many Pokémon as possible, increasing your chance that an Eevee will appear.

It may take a while, but I suggest trying to capture three Eevee so you can evolve each one into its different elemental types, thus completing your Pokédex.

You'll need to stock up on evolution stones in order to evolve your Eevee into their respective elemental types. Luckily, the only thing you'll need to get a Thunder, Fire, or Fire Stone is Pokémon Dollars.

You can buy evolution stones in Celadon City (before you head out to Route 17 to catch your wild Eevee) in the Department Store on the Fourth Floor. Find Wiseman Gifts and you'll be able to purchase each stone for $5,000 Pokémon Dollars each.

Lory is a renaissance woman, writing news, reviews, and how-to guides for iMore. She also fancies herself a bit of a rock star in her town and spends too much time reading comic books.  If she's not typing away at her keyboard, you can probably find her at Disneyland or watching Star Wars (or both).

  • I just have a question regarding taking pokemon out on stroll . There are light indications when i hold down the joystick button which i knoe indicates the type of pokemon . Everytime i move the joystick around it flashes yellow to indicate playing . But after some time of playing . It flashes rainbow. What does that mean ?
  • Is there espeon, Sylveon, leafeon, glaceon, or umbreon?
  • No because the game is Gen 1. So the others are not in it sadly
