The next leg of Pokemon Go's Luminous Legends Y event is currently underway, and it has introduced a fresh Pokemon into the game: Sylveon, the Fairy-type evolution of Eevee. Like previous Eeveelutions, there are a couple of ways to get the newest Fairy Pokemon in Niantic's mobile sport, so here is a rundown on the best way best to evolve Eevee into Sylveon in Pokemon Go.
Earn Buddy Hearts
The conventional means to evolve Eevee into Sylveon is just to make enough hearts with it while it's set as your Buddy Pokemon. You will get hearts with Eevee by feeding, playing, and taking snapshots of it. You will want to make 70 hearts in order for it to evolve into Sylveon, nevertheless --so while this process is simple, it's also a bit time-consuming.
Nickname Trick For Terrible Sylveon
As with other Eevee evolutions, it is possible to also get Sylveon by providing Eevee a specific nickname. In cases like this, change your Eevee's title to Kira and you'll have the ability to evolve it into Sylveon without needing to earn any Buddy hearts. However, this method only works once, so you will only be able to evolve Eevee to Sylveon this way one time. If you want to add more Sylveon to your group, you will need to evolve them via the aforementioned Buddy heart process.
Included in the event, other Eevee evolutions like Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Espeon, and Umbreon will appear at three-star Raids, and you're going to have a chance to catch Eevee and some of its evolutions by finishing event-exclusive Field Research jobs. You can read more about the case on the official Pokemon Visit blog.
Sylveon isn't the only new Pokemon introduced as part of this Luminous Legends occasion. The panda Pokemon Pancham was also added to the game throughout the first part of the occasion, whilst Yveltal is appearing in five-star Raids.
