Umbreon – how to evolve?

You can get it by evolving Eevee but there are a few conditions you need to fulfil.

First, you need to do the evolution during nighttime. You have to remember about this because otherwise, your Eevee will not evolve into Umbreon.

The second condition is that it needs to be your buddy. Remember that you need to walk with it for at least 10km before you do the evolution.

This is good news because you can use this walk to get more candy.

You will need to have 25 candies to evolve Eevee to Umbreon.

Make sure you have enough pineapples to collect candy twice as fast.

Here is the list of all the conditions together:

  • 25 Candy
  • 10 km walk
  • Has to be a buddy
  • Evolve during nighttime
