Pokémon Go Tip – Eeveelutions

EeveeLutions---ClusterThis and many more tips are located on our Pokémon Go tips & Tricks page.

By now many of you may already know about evolving an Eevee into a specific evolution but do you know how to maximize that evolution? If you have not done this yet perfect we will go over the trick as well.

First you want to identify 3 Eevees that have the highest IVs preferably 85% or higher but the highest you have regardless. If you want to know how to check the IVs checkout the IV article and come back.

Second name the Eevees – Sparky, Pyro & Rainer. Note that these are the names of the trainers from the anime that originally held these. Also note this trick only works guaranteed once. These evolutions are listed below.

  • Sparky to get a Jolteon
  • Pyro to get a Flareon
  • Rainer to get a Vaporeon

Third now if you have enough candies evolve the 3 you renamed. If you used the trick above you should now have the 3 revolutions but with the maximum potential. Maximum potential unlike my Jolteon that I didn’t have this trick for before.

Pokémon Go Tip – IV

This and many more tips are located on our Pokémon Go tips & Tricks page.

So what is IV?

Pokemon Go Screenshot IVIV stands for Individual Value and this value stays constant even after evolution. The values for IV range from 0-15 and can be calculated from CP, HP and Dust with a calculation we’re not entirely sure of yet.

As previously stated the IV seems to determine the max CP you can obtain so the higher IV means the higher possible CP.

Still not clear take a look at this IV Calc for possible clarification.

Highest CP may not always be the best because high defensive points but low CP might be a good gym defender. So don’t go getting rid of everything with a low IV score just yet.

It was found by RedBeard that it made life easier if you renamed the pokemon according to their IV because IV is not displayed in Game. This also gives alternate sorting and makes decisions to transfer easier to determine. See pic. The CP is the % value below the pokemon.
