Note that this only works for the first Eevee nicknamed this – otherwise the evolution remains random.

My experience says otherwise. I'd say that it's not as simple as saying the evolution remains simply random.

I evolved 13 Eevees and these are the results I got:

1. Flareon

2. Flareon

3. Jolteon

4. Jolteon

5. Flareon

6. Flareon

7. Vaporeon

8. Flareon

9. Vaporeon

10. Vaporeon

11. Vaporeon

12. Vaporeon

13. Jolteon

If we assume that each Eeveelution up to this point (Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon) has an equal chance of coming up when you evolve Eevee then there should be a 40% (2 out of 5) chance that my Eevee evolves into Espeon or Umbreon. Unless I've done my math wrong there is over a 99.99% chance that at least one of those 13 attempts should have come up with Espeon or Umbreon. There has got to be some other factor at work: time of day, location, whatever. That, of the chance of getting an Espeon or Umbreon is less than the odds of getting a Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon.

For clarification, I do have the latest update and have already caught several Johto Pokemon as well as evolved a Crobat so I know my game has Johto Pokemon available.

Curious! We probably need more numbers to properly get a handle on that then (and when someone does get them, notes about time of day or etc).My experience says otherwise. I'd say that it's not as simple as saying the evolution remains simply random.

Are Sakura and Tamao also names of filler characters from the anime much like the Eevee brothers?

Is it impossible to get a 2nd Espeon/Umbreon? i have evolved over 30 eevees trying to get a 2nd one of these... and my results look just like your list except expand it to cover over 30. Good think i stocked up on eevee candy before Gen2. Still have over 5k

In that case, do the names of the other Kimono girls with the original Eeveelutions also work?

Then evolve that one, the buddy pokemon, after 10km. Evolve it during the day for espeon and during the night for umbreon. My friends say it is confirmed.

This would also explain your spectacular failures. I will do the name thing, and then either try the 10km buddy method or wait for confirmation.
