Evolving Pokemon is one of the features of Pokemon GO. Unlike previous versions of the game, you do not need to level up your Pokemon to evolve it into its more advanced form. You only need Pokemon candies for the specific monster that you want to evolve. Tech-Recipes has a specific tutorial on how to evolve Pokemon. This tutorial focuses specifically on Eevee evolution in Pokemon GO.
Eevee evolution is one of the most unique types of evolution in the world of Pokemon. Who would have thought that a cute monster like Eevee could turn into a strong Pokemon? Eevee can evolve into three different Pokemon, each with a different type of element. Eevee can evolve into a Flareon with the fire element, Jolteon with the lighting element, or Vaporeon with the water element.
Pokemon GO’s mechanics say that Eevee’s evolution is random; you cannot choose what type of Pokemon Eevee becomes. However, Pokemon Go has a secret: There are steps you can take so that you can choose your Eevee evolution. This tutorial will show you how to choose your Eevee evolution.
