Thanks to the hard working minds over at Reddit, we have a neat little trick to get the exact Eevee evolution we’re wanting. By naming your Eevee either Pyro, Sparky, or Rainer before evolving it, you can guarantee what type it will evolve to. Pyro goes to Flareon, Sparky to Jolteon, and Rainer to Vaporeon. Given, this is pretty old news by now. Unfortunately, I was sitting on three Jolteons by the time the story broke several days ago. But now that the initial excitement of my full stocked Eevee team has faded, I’m able to reflect a bit on what’s next. Let me explain. The source behind the trick is in episode 40 of Pokemon’s Indigo series, “The Battling Eevee Brothers.”
In that case, what other tricks await us? Could you summon a Ho Oh by looking at a rainbow during an AR battle with a Spearow? If you drop your phone while battling a Psyduck, will you automatically capture it? I can’t say for sure, but I do know one thing. I’m going to be scouring the series on Netflix for other possible clues.
