As you Pokemon fans know, the adorable Eevee can evolve into three different first-gen Pokemon: Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon. While usually this evolution can be controlled by using a specific evolutionary stone, there are none in Pokemon GO. So how can you make sure you get all three?

Well, it seems that some very clever Reddit users have figured out how to control an “Eveelution”. All you have to do is to give your Eevee a different nickname for each evolution:

  • Sparky for Jolteon
  • Rainer for Vaporeon
  • Pyro for Flareon

Fans of the Pokemon Amine (and lets be fair – who isn’t?) will undoubtedly recognize these names as the names of the three Eevee Brothers from the show: Sparky, Rainer and Pyro.

You can see that is works in the video above, thanks to YouTube user skinzfan602.
