Eevee 100% perfect IV stats, shiny Eevee in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is all about Pokémon Evolution, which is arguably one of the vaguest categories in a game focused on the evolution of things, meaning it’s the perfect opportunity to catch a shiny Eevee in Pokémon Go .

Eevee is unique in the number of potential evolutions it has and some are naturally more useful than others in the world of Pokémon Go. Some are decent at Go Battle League, others not so much. Some are great at raiding; again, others not so much. So if you are still looking for a perfect 100% IV Eevee, this will be the perfect time to look for it.

As usual, catching as many Pokémon as possible is the plan for this week’s Spotlight Hour, although the main attraction really is the opportunity to maximize the double candy transfer bonus that runs alongside the event, especially after the recent antics of the Hoenn Tour.

Eevee IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Spotlight is a great opportunity to catch an Eevee with perfect IV stats.


“Perfect,” of course, means two things in Pokémon Go. First, there’s the max build, 100% IV, which is the 15/15/15 you’re looking for for your 4* Pokédex, Raids, and Master League. However, because of how CP is calculated using these three stats, a perfect Pokémon IV is usually just the best version of itself in Master League, raids, and Go Rocket battles.

Of course, you can’t see a Pokémon’s IV without catching it first, so it’s helpful to know the CPs at which a perfect Eevee will spawn.

If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect Eevee 15/15/15:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 918 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP) – 994 CP
  • The wild CP value aligns with your trainer level until you reach level 30, and since the majority of the player base is now above this level, we’ve kept these values ​​for the sake of simplicity. However, these values ​​will be different if you are currently below level 30.

    Are Eeveelutions good at PvP?

    First, what is an Eeveelution?

    Eevee and his Eeveelutions, as we call them.

    Eevee is unique because it can evolve into several different Pokémon depending on the pre-evolution condition that is met. Instead of the simple ‘Pikachu evolves into Raichu and only Raichu’ scenario we’re all used to, Eevee can evolve into: Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, Leafeon, or Sylveon. Let’s (Eevee) go through each of them one by one, to see what works, where and why.


    It’s bad at PvP. Do not bother yourself. It’s passable as a super budget raid attacker, so if you’re new to the game and don’t have, say, a Reshiram army, a strong Flareon is nothing to look down on.


    It’s also impactful in PvP, but it’s still not worth the effort. Again, it’s a reasonable raid attacker if you’re new to the game and don’t have the legendary Pokémon we recommend.


    Of the Kanto three, Merdog is the only Eeveelution worth considering. However, there are much better options when it comes to mono-Water types, and it doesn’t compare to players like Swampert, the undisputed PvP king of Water types.


    Espeon is hands down the worst Eeveelution in Pokémon Go PvP. It is the exact opposite of its Johto twin, Umbreon, and should be avoided at all costs in competitive play.



    Unlike Espeon, Umbreon is a fan favorite in Go Battle League and shines brightest in Great League, where he runs Snarl, Foul Play, and Last Resort. While he applies fast-moving low pressure, Snarl is a fast-charging move that allows you to trigger foul play with STAB or a last resort for neutral (normal) damage.

    Given Umbreon’s bulk, it’s not a Pokémon to be trifled with and works great against Trevenant, Swampert, Sableye, Noctowl, and Lanturn. Meanwhile, lose to Medicham, Altaria, Registeel, Bastiodon, and Galarian Stunfisk.

    A perfect Great League Umbreon is 0/15/15, reaching CP 1500 at level 27.5.

    But wait, there is more! Umbreon is also pretty decent in Ultra League, where he pulls off the same moves and has almost identical wins and losses. He defeats Trevenant and Giratina, defeats Nidoqueen and Cresselia, and even defeats Walrein for an extra advantage. However, he loses to Obstagoon, Galarian Stunfisk, Swampert, Alolan Muk, and Talonflame.

    A perfect Ultra League Umbreon is 15/15/15 and reaches CP 2416 at level 50. By the way, this means that it is bad in Master League since it simply does not have the CP to compete.



    Glaceon is mediocre basically everywhere except Master League, where having an Ice-type Pokémon can make a big difference, thanks to Dragons dominating the meta. That said, it’s not even in the top 10 Ice types in Master League, so it’s probably not worth running.

    Still, if you want to try your luck, you’re looking for Ice Shard, Avalanche, and Icy Wind, a mono-Ice combo that applies fast movement and shield pressure. The problem is that it is less bulky than ideal and is weak to both Fighting and Steel.

    In terms of matchups, expect wins against Excadrill, Swampert, Garchomp, Mewtwo, and Giratina, but losses against Zacian, Dialga, Lugia, Gyarados, and Dragonite.


    Do not bother yourself. He’s not as bad as the Kanto three, or Arceus forbid, Espeon, but he doesn’t stand out anywhere either. Great in raids, but not worth your time in PvP.



    Last but not least, Sylveon excels in the Master League (and only the Master League), where her natural resistance to Dragons becomes crucial. He also resists Fighting, Dark, and Bug (although the latter is so irrelevant that it hurts). Poison and Steel are the two weaknesses that this Fairy monkey has.

    In terms of movesets, we’re looking at Charm, Moonblast, and Psyshock, which leaves you with a bulky Pokémon that applies fast movement pressure, but is ultimately slow and applies low shield pressure. You take the bad with the good, as they say.

    You can expect Sylveon to get you wins against [insert non-Dialga Dragon here]. The losses, however, come from Dialga, along with Mewtwo, Lugia, Swampert, and Zacian.

    The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! Its first event is A Paldean Adventure, which sees the true launch of Gen 9 and the special research mission A Paldean Adventure. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

    Is there a shiny Eevee in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, there is a Shiny Eevee in Pokémon Go, along with Shiny Eevee of each of its evolutions!

    Currently, Eevee can evolve into one of eight different types. (Image credit:

    Shiny Eevee was released in August 2018, as part of its first Community Day. Since then it has had several Community Days.

    What does the shiny Eevee look like?

    Shiny Eevee changes its brown fur for a lighter sandy brown environment. However, each of the Eeveelutions takes a different approach to brightness: Flareon goes from ketchup to mustard; Jolteon from yellow to light green; Vaporeon from blue to purple, Espeon from purple to green; Umbreon replaces yellow with blue, while remaining mostly black; Leafeon calls it out completely by adjusting its saturation by an almost imperceptible amount; And Glaceon does the same by going from blue to a slightly whiter shade of blue!

    You can see a handy comparison of all the Eeveelutions below, using sprites from the main series games.

    Other Things You Should Know About Eevee Highlight Time

    Spotlight Hour always comes with a bonus you can take advantage of, and this week it’s a double transfer sweet treat. As always, this runs throughout the hour and affects more than just the Pokémon in the spotlight.

    The smartest way to maximize the bonus here is to have a Tag in your Pokémon storage just for this purpose. We recommend creating one called ‘Transfer’, where you can place the Pokémon you don’t want or need. Instead of transferring them as you detect them, hold them for events like these, when you can transfer them in bulk. All those candies add up very quickly and are especially useful when transferring something like a Mewtwo for double candy or after a big event like Hoenn Tour!

    It’s also good to note that, thanks to Eevee being a Normal type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medal.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week we’ll see Rowlet find her way into the spotlight with Double Evolution XP!

    Good luck finding a perfect shiny Eevee!
