How to Get Umbreon in Pokemon Sun - The Ultimate Guide


Umbreon, the Dark-type evolution of Eevee, is a popular Pokemon choice among trainers in Pokemon Sun. Known for its sleek appearance and powerful abilities, Umbreon is a valuable addition to any team. In this article, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of obtaining Umbreon in Pokemon Sun.

Step 1: Catch an Eevee

The first step towards getting an Umbreon is to catch an Eevee. Eevees can be found in several locations throughout Pokemon Sun, including:

  • Route 4 - Eevees have a 10% chance of appearing in the wild here.
  • Trade with other trainers who have an Eevee.
  • Island Scan - Use the Island Scan feature to locate Eevees in other areas.

Step 2: Raise Eevee's Friendship

To evolve Eevee into Umbreon, you need to raise its friendship level. Here are some effective ways to increase Eevee's friendship:

  • Keep Eevee in your party and battle with it frequently.
  • Give Eevee vitamins like Protein, Iron, Calcium, etc., to boost its base stats.
  • Use Eevee in Pokemon Refresh and keep it clean and fed.
  • Walk with Eevee as your lead Pokemon to increase its happiness.

Step 3: Evolve Eevee into Umbreon

Once Eevee's friendship level reaches a certain threshold, it can evolve into Umbreon. However, there is one more crucial factor to consider – the time of day.

Evolve Eevee into Umbreon during the Night

Umbreon evolves from Eevee when it has a high friendship level and levels up during the night (in-game time). Ensure that you level up Eevee when the in-game clock displays evening or nighttime. You can adjust the time in your game settings if needed.

Alternate Method: Use a Rare Candy

If you're eager to get Umbreon quickly, you can also use a Rare Candy to level up Eevee. Use the Rare Candy during the night, and Eevee will evolve directly into Umbreon.

Tips and Tricks

  • Raising Eevee's friendship level can be time-consuming, so be patient and persistent in battling and caring for it.
  • Using items like the Soothe Bell or Luxury Ball can also boost Eevee's friendship growth.
  • Remember that evolving Eevee into other forms before evolving it into Umbreon will reset its friendship level. So, be cautious before using an Evolutionary Stone on Eevee.
