How to evolve Eevee into Leafeon or Glaceon without a lure module
On 6 May a few datamined files showed the addition of new lure modules. They include a new feature compare with standard modules. According to their description, they can be useful in evolving Pokemon.
Two these modules, the mossy and glacial lure module cause Eevee to evolve into Leafon and Glaceon.
Trainers may be excited to add the Eevee evolutions to their collections, but lure model of both evolutions are paid. You can’t get module unless you have Pokecoins as each Lure module costs 200 Pokecoins at Pokemon Go shop.

If you don’t have enough Pokecoins, there is a trick through which you can get Leafeon and Glaceon without new lure module. The trick is all about giving a nickname to Eevee.
Trainers might be familiar with the trick that older Eevee evolutions such as Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon can be chosen by giving Eevee a particular nickname.
You can apply the same to Leafeon and Glaceon. The following nickname will result in Eevee’sevolution:
- Leafeon: “Linnea”
- Glaceon: “Rea”
The evolution button should now show the outline of your desired Eevee evolution.
