One of the most coveted Pokemon in any trainer’s party is Eevee, and this Galar Region native doesn’t come cheaply in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Although the new Gen 8 Pokemon have a few different evolution methods than their predecessors, Eevee still has the same eight “Eeveelutions” as in past generations, and players want to get their hands on all of them.
Luckily, getting an Eevee early on in the game is fairly easy. After you take the train from Wedgehurst to Route 4, look for the tall grass in the northwest corner of the zone to find this Pokemon. You can then battle it until its HP is in the red portion of the bar and throw a Poke Ball at it to catch it.
However, if you’re looking for an Eevee to evolve into your preferred form, then you’ll need to get its hands on a specific item. This article will detail where to find eevee in pokemon sword and how to acquire the elemental stones you need to turn it into a Jolteon, Flareon, Vaporeon, Leafeon, Espeon, Glaceon, or Umbreon.
Those who don’t feel like catching or evolving an Eevee in the wild can head over to the Lake of Outrage area and look for a ring of multiple rocks in a circle. A new Eeveelution spawns at this location each day, and each one changes with the weather: Rain brings out Leafeons, Thunderstorms create a chance to catch a Flareon, Sandstorms bring out Jolteons, and snowstorms prompt Glaceons to show up.
