Pokemon Go: How to Evolve Eevee into Leafeon
You can collect this Pokemon in multiple ways.
Eevee is one of the most unique Pokemon in the Pokemon universe, since it can be evolved into eight different pocket monsters. Seven of those Pokemon are currently available in Pokemon Go (Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Umbreon, Espeon, Glaceon, and Leafeon), but Sylveon hasn’t been released just yet.
Here’s everything you need to know about evolving Eevee into its Grass-type evolution, Leafeon!
You can evolve Eevee into Leafeon in multiple ways. As reported by Eurogamer, the quickest way to evolve Eevee into Leafeon is to simply name Eevee “Linnea” (without the quotation marks) before evolving it. However, this naming trick will only work once. That is, if you want to evolve another Eevee into Leafeon later on, you can use a Mossy Lure Module instead.
Mossy Lure Modules were introduced in Pokemon Go in 2019. When one of these special Lure Modules is activated at a PokeStop, Bug-, Grass-, and Poison-type Pokemon will be attracted to the location for a limited time. Plus, if you’re within range of the PokeStop with the active Mossy Lure Module, you can evolve Eevee into Leafeon.
You’ll know a Mossy Lure Module is active on a PokeStop when you see green leaves falling around the location on the in-game map (you can see what we mean in the screenshot below).
Once you’re close enough to a PokeStop with an active Mossy Lure Module, you can open your Pokemon inventory and tap the Eevee you want to evolve to actually evolve it. If you’re close enough to the PokeStop, the evolve button will show a picture (or silhouette) of Leafeon. If you don’t see the picture or silhouette of Leafeon, you aren’t close enough to the PokeStop and you’ll need to move closer. Make sure the evolve button shows the right picture before evolving Eevee!
Finally, keep in mind that when you want to evolve Eevee into Leafeon using a Mossy Lure Module, you can either activate a Mossy Lure Module on a PokeStop yourself, or use a module that has been activated by another player.
And that’s all there is to it!
