Each is a unique evolution with the theme of water, electricity, and fire element types.

Over the years since its inception, Pokemon Go has gradually added each of its new Eevee Evolutions to the game.

The evolution method is different from the main game, but what both traditional Pokemon and Go have in common is that each evolution is acquired in a different and unique way.
