How to get Leafeon and Glaceon in Pokemon Go

Leafeon and Glaceon have made their way into Pokemon Go. These are the Generation IV evolutions of Eevee, and they both first appeared in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

As with all Eevee evolutions, what you will end up with is random, but there are a couple of ways you can get Leafeon and Glaceon. The first, and most important, way to obtain them is through the name trick. All you need to do to use the following names.

For Glaceon, rename an Eevee to Rea.

For Leafeon, rename an Eevee to Linnea.

In the images below, you’ll see after you do the renaming, your “Evolve” button changes from the usual question mark to a silhouette of the evolution you’re going to get.

Keep in mind, though, the renaming trick works only once. You may want to reserve using this for when you get your next shiny Eevee.

There is, however, a second way to evolve Eevee to Leafeon and Glaceon.

(And yes, I know the GPS warning is annoying, and I have no reason why it wouldn’t go away when I needed to work on this.)

Using the Glacial Lure and Mossy Lure

With the update that brought us Leafeon and Glaceon, we also had three new types of lures introduced: Glacial, Mossy, and Magnetic. When you use the Glacial lure, and you’re within range of it while evolving an Eevee, you’ll get a Glaceon. You do the same for Leafeon with the Mossy lure.

These lures cost 200 coins each, which you can obtain coins by either buying them or earning them through defending gyms. At a rate of 50 coins maximum a day from gyms, it won’t take you too long to get both of these evolutions.

While it may be tempting to rush to use the name change trick, we do suggest holding off for a shiny Eevee to do that. Then that way you don’t even have to worry about the lures and you get a shiny Glaceon or Leafeon.
