Details on eevee's locations in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Included are an overview, steps on how to get Eevee, tips on raising Eevee, and its strengths.


Eevee is a fascinating Pokemon owing to its ability to evolve into one of the different kinds of Pokemon. When conditions are met, its evolutions or widely known as “eeveelutions,” grow to be strong contenders when used in the main story. Here, we give you a summary of where to find Eevee, its evolutions, and some recommended moves to teach them for the main story.



Eevee, the evolution Pokemon, is a unique species mainly because it can evolve into one of eight different Pokemon. Each of its evolutions is a different type and can be a useful addition to your party.

Where to find Eevee

Normally, Eevee can be caught on Route 4. The route lies before Turrfield and is covered with patches of golden leaves. Look around the overworld until you encounter an Eevee.

How to get a Gigantamax Eevee

In addition, players who have access to Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee can transfer this Pokemon with flawless stats.

Below are the steps on how to get this special Eevee:

  • Create a save file from Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee.
  • Head to the rail station and look for the boy wearing a hoodie.
  • Talk to him and he’ll give you an Eevee with maxed out IVs.
  • Similar to the free Gigantamax Meowth, this special Eevee does not evolve.

Raising more Eevee

With this Gigantamax Eevee, you can raise multiple Eevee with flawless stats. To do this method, you’ll need to capture a Ditto from a Max Raid battle to ensure that it also has nearly flawless stats. When you have the two Pokemon, give one of them a Destiny Knot. You can also choose to give one an Everstone to pass down its nature if you wish. After preparing the Pokemon, leave them in one of Galar’s nurseries. Go on a stroll and then talk to the NPC to claim eggs. Now, all that’s left is to hatch them until you find the one with your desired nature and stats. You can speed up this process by putting your Pokemon in the PC and only carrying one with Flame Body in the party. This method cuts the amount of time spent moving around to hatch the eggs. Since both Pokemon have high stats, it shouldn’t take much time to hatch a strong Eevee.


Physical attacks

Flareon Icon

Flareon and Leafeon are two of Eevee’s evolutions that excel in physical attacks. Eevee can evolve into Flareon if you give it a fire stone, whereas it can evolve into Leafeon if you use a leaf stone. Due to their types, they can be a great substitute for trainers who didn’t pick Scorbunny or Grookey.

Special attacks

Vaporeon Icon Espeon Icon
Glaceon Icon Sylveon Icon

While the choices for Eevee’s evolutions that depend on physical attacks are quite slim, the remaining evolutions are the opposite. For those who didn’t choose Sobble, they can use Vaporeon as a replacement thanks to its water typing. To get Vaporeon, you need to use a water stone on Eevee. Among its other evolutions, Sylveon and Espeon also stand out due to their high special attacks. Eevee can evolve into Sylveon through high affection or happiness and after learning a fairy type move. It evolves to Espeon when its friendship is high in the mornings. Another Pokemon that relis on special attacks is Glaceon. Eevee evolves into Glaceon when exposed to an Ice Stone.


Umbreon Icon

Umbreon is a dark type Pokemon that evolves through friendship in the evenings. While it has some physical attacks, its mainly used to soften opponents using status moves. Umbreon shines in turning the foes’ attack against them using moves like Foul Play. It also has high defense and special defense which makes it worthwhile to raise if you wish to play defensively.
