How to catch Eevee

Where to find Eevee

Eevee can be found in the grass on Route 4 at any time during the day or night. You’ll arrive at Route 4 after taking the train from Wedgehurst.

Eevee is very elusive, so it’s going to take a while for it to appear. Keep wandering around in the tall yellow grass and keep an eye out for those adorable tell-tale ears sticking out.

How to evolve Eevee

Evolving Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield is relatively easy. Simply level up your Eevee a little bit so it is at least level 15 and then use one of the following stones on it:

  1. Flareon = Use a fire stone
  2. Jolteon = Use a thunder stone
  3. Vaporeon = Use a water stone
  4. Leafeon = Use a leaf stone
  5. Glaceon = Use an ice stone

For Espeon and Umbreon the process is slightly different as you must raise your friendship level with your Eevee in your camp by playing with it, feeding it and using it to practice fighting in your camp. Once your friendship with that Eevee has been maxed out, the next time it evolves it will transform into either Espeon if it levels up during the day or Umbreon if it levels up during the night.
