If you've been wondering how to get your hands on legacy critters like Pikachu and Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield, then you can stop second-guessing yourself. Whether it's the special one from Pokemon Let's Go that can Gigantamax or just a regular ol' run of the mill one, here's how to catch Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
How to Catch Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield
So you can acquire an Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield in more than one way. The first, which we've already briefly mentioned, is to actually own Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and have a save file of it on your Switch. If you do, you'll be able to pick up the Gigantamax Eevee from one of two trainers in the Wild Area train station by the Meetup Spot.
However, if you're just looking out for your average Eevee, we've got some good news. Sure, it's not going to be as adorably fluffy as the Gigantamax version that you can get, but they're actually not super difficult to find in the wild. Our recommendation would be to head straight for Route 4 after arriving from Wedgehurst and to just start running around until you spot them scampering around.
Take your time to head back and forth between the areas til an Eevee makes its presence known, then proceed how you normally would when it comes to catching any other Pokemon. Eevee can evolve into all of its Eeveelutions in this game so long as you've got the right evolution stone or meet the right conditions. For example, we've got a guide on how to turn your Eevee into a Sylveon if you're interested, and you can check that out here.
Now that we've told you how to catch Eevee in Pokemon Sword and Shield, why not check out some other tips and tricks that we've put together for aspiring Trainers in the Galar region?
