Wild Eevee will be scattered all over the map, with Gigantamax Eevee also making an appearance. Players can also obtain prizes, such as Unite license puzzle pieces, which can be used to unlock the Unite license for Espeon, Glaceon, or Sylveon once 10 puzzle pieces have been obtained.
Tencent and The Pokemon Company have been slowly adding lots of everyone’s favourite pocket monsters to the game, and even shortly after it launched in 2021 they added Gardevoir, Blastoise, Sylveon, and more.
