The “name trick” is to give your Eevee a certain nickname before it evolves. Each nickname only works once per account, so save it to turn a Shiny Eevee into a Shiny Sylveon if you can. The nickname you should use is “Kira”. After it evolves, you can redefine the name however you like.
In the main games, Eevee evolves into Sylveon when her affection is high. Not to be confused with the friendship mechanic used by Umbreon and Espeon, affection is acquired by playing with your Eevee.
How to get Sylveon in Pokémon GO 2022
There are two ways to get Sylveon in Pokémon GO 2022. Well, three if you’re going to find it in raids, defeat it and Defeat it. Catch him then. However, it is not the most reliable method, so we will skip it. However, it is good to know that this Pokémon can sometimes appear in Raids. The first way to get Sylveon is to take an Eevee and change her nickname to Kira. Yeah, it’s similar to how you get Umbreon and Espeon. Once you’ve changed the nickname, simply give this Pokemon 25 Eevee Candy and activate the evolution. If you did everything correctly, you will now have a Sylveon. The downside is that you can only do this once. Any other Sylveon you get must be “legitimate”.
The “correct” way to evolve Sylveon in Pokémon GO in 2022 (and in general) is a much longer process. You need to set the Eevee you want to become Fairy-type as a Buddy Pokemon, then level it up to seventy hearts, which is the Great Buddy friendship level. Unless you give your friend a coffin, you can get up to twelve hearts per day. So that’s at least six days of crushing hearts. For more information on how to do this, check out our How to Get Best Friend in Pokémon GO guide. Once you hit seventy hearts, give Pokemon 25 Eevee Candy and boom, you’ve got a Sylveon.

When you evolve an Eevee in Pokemon Go! by tapping on it and choosing the Evolve option, there’s no way to determine what evolutionary form it will take. It’s a pretty common mechanic for Pokemon games, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work on evolving into a particular species you want, like Sylveon, if you have a lot of Eevee and Candy lying around.
It is well known that you can give a nickname to the Pokémon available in your Pokédex. However, only a few trainers know that you can set a nickname for a specific Pokemon before evolving to get the results you want.
