Pokémon Scarlet And Violet: Easy Guide To Evolve Eevee Into Umbreon

Both "Pokémon Scarlet and Violet" have no shortage of adorable Pokémon, including classics from Gen 1 like Eevee. For those hoping to evolve Eevee into Umbreon, a night-themed Gen 2 evolution of the precious and versatile creature, the steps to do so are easy. However, given the multiple branched evolution options available to Eevee, both in these recent titles as well as throughout Pokémon history, it's important that players make the right moves to avoid accidentally evolving Eevee into another creature. In fact, the steps for evolving Eevee into Umbreon, Espeon, and Sylveon are so similar that players should take caution to ensure proper results – but for those in the know, it's easy to make sure they get what they're going for in an Eevee evolution.


Evolving Eevee into Umbreon is quite simple. The first step players need to take on their journey to transform Eevee into Umbreon is raising the friendship with the pocket monster. Like in previous titles, raising friendship in "Pokémon Scarlet and Violet" can take many forms, including battling together, exploring together, and in a method new to the latest titles, taking Pokémon on picnics. Beyond that, there are just a few more steps.

Final steps to transform Eevee into Umbreon

After spending some time enhancing their friendship with Eevee, "Pokémon Scarlet and Violet" players will become curious if they're close to evolving this special Pokémon. To figure out how high friendship is between a trainer and a Pokémon, gamers can visit the Cascarrafa town center to meet a special NPC with a Marill, who can tell them if their friendship level is up to par. If the friendship-checking NPC says, "you're getting along well... but I'm sure you could get way friendlier," or a more affirming message, it's a sign that Eevee is ready to become Umbreon. This is the equivalent of the Eevee having two out of five hearts over its head in picnic mode, which is another way to check friendship. After that, there's just one more step.


Just leveling up friendship alone can result in one of three Eeveelutions, including Umbreon, Sylveon, and Espeon. To make sure trainers get Umbreon, it's crucial Eevee doesn't know any Fairy-type moves, or it'll turn into Sylveon when it evolves. And, if it evolves during the day without a fairy-type move, it'll become Espeon. Evolving Eevee at night with adequate friendship and no fairy-type moves is the surefire way to ensure it evolves into Umbreon. That's all there is to it – now, players can enjoy "Pokemon Scarlet and Violet" even more with this knowledge in hand.
