Eeveelution forms Leafeon and Glaceon rumoured for Pokémon GO March Equinox Event

A rumoured Equinox Event for Pokémon GO on March 21 may finally add the Leafeon and Glaceon forms for Eevee.

Information about an Equinox event has been datamined by Chrales who has been right about several additions in the past, such as the recent Shiny Pidgey and Ratata and Clamperl events held in the game.

A recent tweet has highlighted ‘Equinox 2019 quests’ which include catching and evolving Grass-type Pokémon, as well as catching Bulbasaur or Chikoritas.


This isn’t the first time an Equinox event has been held in the game – with one on September 2017 – and it would certainly make sense as this Equinox is linked with Spring. The Equinox begins on March 21 with Winter ending on March 20, which leads people to think that’s when the event would start. There is a Treecko Community Day on March 23 after all, and he is a grass-type..

This has also led people to believe Leafeon and Glaceon will finally debut as it will see the transition from Winter to Spring, which makes a lot of sense. If they do finally appear, that will leave just one Eevee evolved form – Sylveon from Gen 6 – to be added to the game. That is, if Pokémon Sword and Shield doesn’t add another one.

Others have speculated there will be new Plant-type Pokémon hatching in 7km Eggs, x2 in Candies, new Pokémon appearing, and Shiny Hoppips.

Of course, none of this is official as yet. Niantic haven’t commented and there’s no actual evidence to suggest Leafeon or Glaceon are coming to the game, but seeing as they are Gen 4 Pokémon and the events synchronize with the Pokémon types, it all makes sense.
