Was it your buddy when you evolved it?
No but I walked 10k with it
Needs to be your buddy when you evolve it.
Vappy is not bad at all.
I was evolving a eevee it should become Flareon but it became Vaporeon
gen 1 evolutions are random if those name trick evolutions have been used.
gen 2 evolutions can be forced/picked by trainers.
My brother use the name trick to get Vaporeon but it turned into a Jolteon it was his first time using it
That’s very weird.
If he named it then straight away evolved it the server may not have had time to log the change and therefore the name trick didn’t take effect.
It is generally recommended to wait a little after renaming before evolving or restarting the game
Ok I’ll tell him to try that thanks
