With the potential to evolve into a whopping eight different Pokémon, Eevee is one of the most popular and versatile creatures in the franchise. Fortunately for Eevee fans, it is available early on in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Here’s where players can find Eevee in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and how they can evolve it into each of the Eeveelutions.

Where to find Eevee in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The earliest place that Eevee is available in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is Horseshoe Plains. This is one of the first areas players can access in Obsidian Fieldlands. It may take some time to come across Eevee, since it is much rarer than Bidoof and some of the other Pokémon in Horseshoe Plains.

If the player misses an Eevee earlier in the game, there are plenty of other places to find it. Eevee is also available in Crossing Slope, Avalugg’s Legacy and Avalanche Slopes. Additionally, Eevee can show up in the space-time distortions that appear in Obsidian Fieldlands, Crimson Mirelands, Cobalt Coastlands, Coronet Highlands and Alabaster Icelands.

How to get all of the Eeveelutions

The original Eeveelutions from Kanto all evolve via evolution stone. The player can give Eevee a Fire Stone to get Flareon, a Thunder Stone to get Jolteon or a Water Stone to get Vaporeon. Players can obtain evolution stones as hidden items while riding Ursaluna. In addition, players can exchange Merit Points for evolution stones at the Trading Post in Jubilife Village.

Leafeon and Glaceon have both had two different evolution methods in the past. Each of these methods appear for Eevee in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The player can give Eevee a Leaf Stone to get Leafeon or an Ice Stone to get Glaceon. Conversely, Eevee will evolve into Leafeon near the Mossy Rock or Glaceon near the Icy Rock.

To evolve into one of the final three Eeveelutions, Eevee must have high friendship. If leveled up with high friendship during the day, it will evolve into Espeon. If leveled up with high friendship at night, it will evolve into Umbreon. Finally, Eevee will evolve into Sylveon if leveled up with high friendship while knowing a Fairy-type move in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Players hoping for Sylveon should make sure their Eevee learns Baby-Doll Eyes at Level 18.
