Eevee is the uncrowned king of evolution in Pokémon GO. You can evolve it into eight different variations—or eeveelutions, if you’d like—but you definitely don’t want to leave that whole process to luck.
In case you’re wondering how to get Leafeon and Leafeon only, you’re in the right place. Our guide explains how to evolve Eevee into Leafeon in Pokémon GO so you don’t end up with yet another Vaporeon or Flareon.
How to Get Leafeon in Pokémon GO the Easy Way
The easiest way to ensure that your Eevee evolves into Leafeon is to rename it and use the nickname Linnea. This method is a neat little trick that works for all eeveelutions if you know which name to use.
This nickname pays homage to the Eevee trainer Linnea who owns a Leafeon in Pokémon Sun and Moon, but keep in mind that this method works only once. If you want another Leafeon, you will have to explore other methods.
How to Get Leafeon in Pokémon GO—Alternative Methods
Luckily, there is another way to make sure you get your favorite Grass-type from your Eevee, but it is a bit more complicated than just changing Eevee’s name.
To get a Leafeon, you will need 25 Eevee candies and the Mossy Lure Module, which you can get from the PokeShop for 200 coins. After you get the lure, apply it to a PokeStop. Spin the PokeStop but stay within the range (not the extended radius). Only then evolve your Eevee, and the outcome should be your new Leafeon!
