In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, players have the opportunity to capture Eevee very early on in the game; however, this does not mean that doing so will be simple.
Eevee has always been one of the most coveted Pokémon to catch. Its endearing personality has made it a fan favorite throughout all 25 years of Pokemon, and the numerous ways in which it can evolve make it a viable option for patching up any gaps that may exist in a party.
However, players won’t need to use Eevee to patch up any holes in their lineups in this match. Players can have access to a complete roster of Eevee evolutions to use for almost the entirety of Pokemon Legends: Arceus if they put in the necessary amount of effort.
However, this is easier to say than it is to accomplish. The Pokemon Eevee is difficult to catch because it can only be found in a single location. The following is a guide that will explain how to acquire Eevees and then evolve them into the desired Eeveelution.
Arceus is the location in Pokemon Legends where Eevee can be caught.
In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the Horseshoe Plains region of the Obsidian Fieldlands is where players have the opportunity to catch Eevee.
This region can be found immediately to the east of the first camp that players visit in the game. During the day, players have a chance of encountering Bidoof and Eevee in this region, while at night they may come across Bidoof, Drifloon, and Eevee instead. The Shinx and Ponyta spawn are located too far north, while the Buizel spawns are located too far east and south, respectively.
This section of the Horseshoe Plains is located in the middle of where Eevees can be found. In the event that none can be located, players should return to their camp, defeat or capture any Bidoof that may be present, and then take a rest in order to reset the spawns. This will open the door for the spawning of various Pokemon, including the possibility of yet another Eevee appearing on the map.
Once an Eevee has been located, it is incumbent upon the players to capture it without resorting to combat. The most effective method for doing this is to use an Oran Berry to lead it to a specific location, then sneak up behind it and hit it with a Poke Ball from behind. In the event that the player is discovered, the Eevee will run away. If the player attempts to start the battle, the Eevee will flee on the first turn and then vanish.
Even if the player is successful in sneaking up behind an Eevee and hitting it from behind, the Eevee can still get away. When attempting to capture an Eevee, it is recommended that you make use of the best Poke Ball types that are available.
How to evolve Eevee in Legends: Arceus
Eevee can be evolved in Pokemon Legends: Arceus by making use of evolution stones or by attaining a predetermined level of affection. Both of these methods are available.
Jolteon, Flareon, Vaporeon, Glaceon, and Leafeon can all be obtained in the same manner as they were in Pokemon Sword and Shield by using the appropriate elemental evolutionary stone. Players are able to obtain evolution stones very early on in the game. These stones can be farmed at the Jubilife Village trading post by exchanging merit points for them. Finding satchels that have been misplaced in the wilderness is one way to earn merit points. The sparkling Tumblestone veins have a small but not insignificant chance of dropping evolution stones.
After reaching a certain level of affection, players have the option of evolving their Eevee into either Umbreon, Espeon, or Sylveon. As Eevee spends more time with the party and continues to perform well in battle, he will earn more affection from everyone. When a player’s Eevee has reached the necessary level of affection to evolve, a notification will appear on the player’s left-hand side of the screen, and an alert will also appear in the party menu.
It is possible for an Eevee to evolve into a Sylveon if it already possesses a move of the fairy type and then uses the menu to evolve. If it does not know any moves of the fairy type, it will evolve into either an Espeon or an Umbreon. The trainer will receive an Espeon if they evolve their Eevee during the day, and they will receive an Umbreon if they evolve their Eevee during the night.
In addition to this, there are some Eeveelutions that can be found in the ranks of the alpha Pokemon. The Pokemon Legends: Arceus post-game gives players the opportunity to battle alpha Eevees in the Obsidian Fieldlands, in addition to the fact that Sylveon and Leafeon can be found as normal spawns in the game.
