The Gen 2 Pokemon are now available in Pokemon Go. While there are a few ways to find them, if you’ve been playing the game since it launched, you should already know that there’s a very special way to get Pokemon Go Umbreon and Espeon. This article covers the Pokemon Go Gen 2 Eevee trick so you can quickly and easily get Umbreon and Espeon in the new update.
You’re probably already familiar with the previous Eevee trick, and the new one for Gen 2 is very similar. In order to evolve Eevee into Umbreon, name your Eevee Tamao. If you wish to get Espeon, name your Eevee Sakura. You can only use this name trick one time so it’s very important to hold off on performing the trick until you have a good Eevee to evolve.
If you plan to use Umbreon or Espeon to do battle, you’re going to want to make sure they’re strong. If you just evolve the first Eevee you come across you may not be getting the most out of the evolution. Wait until you have a strong Eevee before you perform the name trick so that you have the strongest possible Umbreon and Espeon to battle with.
