How to get Leafeon & Glaceon in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go Leafeon and Pokemon Go Glaceon are the latest two Pokemon Go Eevee evolutions to be introduced to the game and like the others, they have unique ways of evolving. In order to get Leafeon and Glaceon in Pokemon Go for the first time, you can use a unique nickname before evolving Eevee, but after that you'll need to use a slightly more complex method. We've got everything explained here in this guide on how to get Leafeon and Glaceon in Pokemon Go.

Just like you can do with the previous five Eevee-lutions, there are two unique nicknames you can give to your Eevee to evolve it into either Leafeon or Glaceon. How it works is simple: edit the name of your Eevee prior to evolution, and you can guarantee the specific Eevee-lution you'll receive for the first evolution only. If you've already got one, the nickname trick won't work. Here's all of the Eevee-lution nicknames, including Leafeon & Glaceon:

  • Flareon - Pyro
  • Jolteon - Sparky
  • Vaporeon - Rainer
  • Espeon - Sakura
  • Umbreon - Tamao
  • Leafeon - Linnea
  • Glaceon - Rea

This will guarantee you'll receive the respective Pokemon, but only for the first evolution. Subsequent evolutions will have to follow the assigned method. For Leafeon and Glaceon, read on to find out what that method is.

In the same update that introduced Leafeon & Glaceon to the game, the method of acquiring them was also added. Head to the shop in-game and you'll see three brand new lures available: the Magnetic Lure, Mossy Lure, and Glacial Lure. It's the latter two you'll want to buy for 200 coins apiece in order to acquire Leafeon and Glaceon.

Head to your nearest Poke Stop and apply either the Mossy Lure for Leafeon or the Glacial Lure for Glaceon, then find the Eevee you want to evolve in your list. If done correctly, the "evolve" button should display the silhouette of either Leafeon or Glaceon, so you can be sure it's working correctly. If it displays a question mark, do not evolve Eevee because there's no guarantee it will turn into the Pokemon you want. If you're wondering what the Magnetic Lure does, take a look at our guide to all of the Pokemon Go evolution items.
