You can evolve your Eevee and have it become Sylveon in Pokémon Go, one of the better Fairy-type Pokémon in the mobile game. It’s a surprisingly good choice for those looking to compete in the Master League, mainly if you teach it the best moveset it can learn. However, with so many evolutions available to Eevee, you want to make sure you follow the correct method to evolving it. This is how you evolve Eevee into Sylveon in Pokémon Go.

The important thing to do is to make Eevee your buddy. This will be the one you want to evolve into Sylveon. From there, your next task is to earn 70 hearts with this Eevee while it is your buddy. You want to keep this Eevee your buddy throughout the entire time. We’re unsure if you do this once and then make a new buddy, so you’re better off keeping it as your buddy until it evolves.

If you’re looking for methods to give it hearts, you can walk with them, provide them with a treat, play together, battle together, take a snapshot of Eevee, or visit a new PokéStop together. You can see all of the daily activities on the buddy screen. In total, you can only earn 12 hearts a day. It’ll take you nearly a whole week to go through the standard method.

Alternatively, you can use the special name for Eevee. If you name the Eevee you want to evolve into Sylveon Kira, you will guarantee this evolution. However, you can only do this once. If you’ve been saving a specific Eevee for Sylveon, this is the time to use the one-time evolution trick. Every Eevee evolution has one.
