Eevee is a cute fox-like Pokemon that is one of its kind. It is known as the “Evolution” Pokemon because it has multiple evolutions in the franchise. Out of the 8 Eeveelutions (evolutions of Eevee) introduced in Pokemon, Leafeon is one of the best to have in your team.

How to Get Leafeon (Evolve Eevee into Leafeon) in Pokemon Go?
Many Pokemon Go players want to have a Leafeon into their team but they never find it. This is because Glaceon is not roaming in the wild, unlike other Pocket Monsters. As I have already mentioned, to get a Leafeon in Pokemon Go, you must catch and evolve an Eevee.
However, when you normally evolve an Eevee by giving it 25 Eevee candy, you would usually get a Jolteon, Flareon, or Vaporeon randomly. In order to get a Leafeon, you must special Eevee while using certain special measures.
There are two methods available to surely evolve your Eevee into a Leafeon. One method allows to only get a Leafeon for the first time in Pokemon Go. It won’t work if you already have a Leafeon in your team. The second one allows you to catch as many Leafeon as you wish.
Method-1: Rename your Eevee to Linnea Before Evolution
The first and the simplest method to evolve an Eevee into Leafeon is to use the name trick. When you rename your Eevee to some specific names, it will evolve into certain forms with a guarantee. However, if you don’t do that, the evolution will be completely random.
To evolve your Eevee into Leafeon in Pokemon Go, you have to rename it to “Linnea” before evolution. After that, evolve your Eevee by giving it 25 Eevee candy. This way, the Eevee will surely evolve into a Leafeon. You can also rename the Leafeon to any other name after the evolution.
This method is extremely simple to use but it has a limitation that you can only use it once. The next time you rename an Eevee to Linnea, it won’t evolve into a Leafeon. It’ll be randomized.
Method-2: Use Mossy Lure & Evolve Eevee into Leafeon
The second method is a bit time-consuming but you can use it as many times as you wish to get a Leafeon in Pokemon Go. It doesn’t involve renaming your Eevee but you’ll have to use a special item.
For this method, you have to find use a Mossy Lure while being in the range of a PokeStop, and then evolve your Eevee by giving it 25 Eevee candy. There is nothing else you need to do.
Note: You can buy the Mossy Lure from the in-game shop for 200 coins.
You can also use a Glaceon by using a similar method. The only difference will be that you’ll have to use a Glacial Lure instead of the Mossy one. The Glacial Lure is also available in the in-game shop for the same price.
Get Any Evolution of Eevee in Pokemon Go Easily
As of now, Eevee can evolve into eight different evolutionary forms having different types. You can randomly get the Johto evolutions of Eevee randomly but if you want to get any evolutionary form with surety, you will have to use the rename trick.
There are different names that you’ll have to use on Eevee to get a specific evolutionary form. You can have all the eight evolutionary forms in this manner. However, you can only get them once.
Here are the names that you need to use before evolution to get a specific evolutionary form:
- Flareon: Rename the Eevee to Pyro and then evolve it.
- Vaporeon: Rename the Eevee to Rainer and then evolve it.
- Jolteon: Rename the Eevee to Sparky and then evolve it.
- Espeon: Rename the Eevee to Sakura and then evolve it.
- Umbreon: Rename the Eevee to Tamao and then evolve it.
- Glaceon: Rename the Eevee to Rea and then evolve it.
- Leafeon: Rename the Eevee to Linnea and then evolve it.
- Sylveon: Rename the Eevee to Kira and then evolve it.
You can save this chart to use in the future whenever you need any Eeveelution.
