This question already has an answer here:

I want powerful Pokemon and have enough Eevee candies. Can I force it to evolve into the Pokemon I want?

I'm not asking what it can evolve into, I'm asking how I can force evolving into those.

    I believe the question linked to by @Brant already covers this one. Voting to close as dupe. – galacticninja Jul 16 '16 at 5:23

    The questions certainly are duplicates. You're both asking how to tell which Eeveelution a particular Eevee will evolve into, even if you're wording it differently. – Michaellogg Jul 16 '16 at 15:14

The Eevee Brothers from the anime were named Rainer, Pyro, Sparky and they owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon respectively.

If you nickname your Eevee either Rainer, Pyro or Sparky, your Eevee will evolve into that desired Eeveelution!

Sparky = Jolteon Jolteon

Rainer = Vaporeon Vaporeon

Pyro = Flareon Flareon

Please be aware that you can do it only once per Pokemon class (to reword, you can only do this trick once per nickname).

Normally Eevee will evolve into a Random version of the 3. However an easter egg has been spotted which allows you to choose which version you want to evolve it in.

Simply change the name of your Eevee to one of the names of the trainers in the original TV series and you will get the corresponding Eevee evolution.

Sparky - Becomes a Jolteon (Electric)
Rainer - Becomes a Vaporeon (Water)
Pyro - Becomes a Flareon (Fire)

Most people consider Vaporeon to be the strongest as it has the highest CP, but it kind of depends on what kind of Pokemon are in the Gyms around you.
