Unlike previous games in the Pokemon main series, Scarlet and Purple have made fan-favorite Eevee quite difficult to catch. Only spawning in a few small areas and with very low spawn rates, trying to evolve the Eeveelutions Byte has never been harder. But this weekend, the games’ first Tera Raid battle event should make catching the flail much easier.
At all other times, if you want an Eevee, you’ll need to head to West Province Area 3, South Province Area 2, or the path to the Pokemon League. But this weekend after Thanksgiving, it was announced that the Tera Raid Battle event will feature an Eevee Spotlight.
Taking place starting today, from Friday the 25th at 11:00 a.m. to Monday the 28th at 10:59 a.m., Eevee will be much more likely to spawn in Tera Raid Battles, those triggered by approaching the large glowing crystals that project vast beams of light into the sky. . Which not only means Eevee will be easier to find, but you’ll have the option to collect a bunch of them with different Tera types, which means they’ll change from Normal type to one of 19 others.

There is a small caveat, but not significant. In order for the Raid Battle event to trigger in your game, you need to connect your Switch to the internet long enough to download the latest “Poké Portal News”, which should download automatically if you’re already online. And no, it has nothing to do with the paid online Switch subscription, so don’t worry. All free.
With a clutch of Eevee under your belt, you’ll probably want to start thinking about evolving them into their eight different forms. (All my hopes of a ninth Paldean Eevee seem to have been dashed.) Here are some handy tips for getting all eight Eevee:
Flareon: Give your Eevee a Fire Stone.
Glaceon: Give your Eevee an Ice Stone.
Volteon: Give your Eevee a Thunder Stone.
Serial: Give your Eevee a Leaf Stone.
Vaporeon: Give your Eevee a water stone.
Especially : You need your Eevee at a high friendship level, make sure it doesn’t know any fairy moves, then evolve it over the course of the day.
Shadeon: High friendship again, don’t let him learn fairy moves and then evolve him at night.
Sylveon: Again a high level of friendship, but this time make sure it Is know a fairy move, then evolve it day and night.
Combined with Tera types from Tera battles, this will get incredibly complicated! Good luck!
