    Obtain Sylveon

    Sylveon is still an extremely new Pokemon, so it is not available in the older games. It is only available from generation 6 and onward. The method for evolving an Eevee into Sylveon is the same in both X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, so I won't be dividing this into sections. Getting a Sylveon is unique, and involves the new Pokemon Amie feature. Your Eevee must know at least one fairy-type move. This is not optional. If your Eevee does not have a fairy type move, it will evolve into an Espeon or Umbreon. You then play with your Eevee in Pokemon Amie by feeding it, petting it, and playing games. When the number of hearts (affection) reaches two or more, then you are ready to let your Eevee evolve. Simply level it up, and Eevee should evolve into a Sylveon.

    In the grand scheme of things, Sylveon is actually one of the easiest Eeveelutions to obtain with very few conditions having to be met. If you don't already have an Eevee, head on over to Eevee game locations.
