Pokemon Go: How to Get Umbreon
You can collect Umbreon in multiple ways.
In the Pokemon universe, Eevee, the Evolution Pokemon, can be evolved into eight different pocket monsters, and seven of those are currently available in Pokemon Go (Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon). The only Eevee evolution that isn’t available in Pokemon Go (as of this writing) is Sylveon.
Since Eevee can be evolved into so many different Pokemon, it has a unique evolutionary system in Pokemon Go. That is, while many other Pokemon can be evolved by simply collecting enough Pokemon Candy, Eevee’s evolution works differently.
Here’s what you need to know about evolving Eevee into Umbreon, Eevee’s Dark-type Evolution.
As reported by Eurogamer, if you’ve never evolved Eevee into Umbreon before, the easiest way to evolve one is to simply rename Eevee to “Tamao” (without the quotation marks) before evolving it. However, this trick will only work once.
If you want to evolve another Eevee into Umbreon after that, you’ll need to complete a few steps, according to Pokemon Go Hub:
- Make the Eevee you want to evolve into Umbreon your Buddy.
- Walk 10 km with that Eevee as your Buddy so that you earn two Eevee Candy (you earn one Eevee Candy for walking 5 km).
- Evolve that Eevee at night while it is still your Buddy.
Each time you want to evolve an Eevee into Umbreon, you’ll need to complete these same steps all over again.
And that’s all there is to it! To learn how to evolve Eevee into Espeon instead, check out our guide.
