When are Leafeon and Glaceon coming to Pokemon Go? That has been the question Pokemon trainers have been asking ever since Gen 4 was introduced.
Gen 4 Pokemon
Generation 4 Pokemon were first added to Pokemon Go in November 2018. As with other generations the rollout for all the Pokemon has been a gradual process.

Six months after the first Gen 4 batch and, Leafeon and Glaceon, are still yet to be found. However, renowned dataminer Chrales has provided some information which suggests their arrival is imminent.
Chrales has revealed plenty of Pokemon Go information ahead of time due to their datamines.
Recent examples of this include the lucky friends feature and the team change medallion. These both come to fruition less than a month after they were found.
Chrales' most recent datamine sheds light on three new lure modules. They are as follows:
- Glacial Lure Module: A frosty Lure Module that attracts Pokemon for 30 minutes - especially ones that love the cold
- Magentic Lure Module: An electronic Lure Module that attracts Pokemon for 30 minutes - especially ones that possess a magnetic field
- Mossy Lure Module: A natural Lure Module that attracts Pokemon for 30 minutes - especially ones that love mossy scents
Most tellingly, each of these is also captioned with "It can also cause some Pokemon to evolve."
Finally, Leafeon and Glaceon
These new items could pave the way for Leafeon and Glaceon to be added. Of course these are the two Eevee evolutions, from the available generations, that have so far eluded Pokemon Go.
It sounds like the Glacial Lure Module will evolve Eevee into the ice-type Glaceon whereas the Mossy Lure Module into its grass-type evolved form Leafeon.
Whether these will be added to the game in the next couple days or beyond that is still unknown. Our guess is May 22 could be the date. This is after the conclusion of the Detective Pikachu event and the subsequent Torchic community day.
Elsewhere, the Magnetic Lure Module could bring the introduction of Probopass and Magnezone.
