There are many forms of Eevee evolution, and Umbreon is one of the most popular variations. Since all the Eeveelutions are available to capture or evolve Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Here is a guide on how to get Umbreon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
How to evolve Eevee into Umbreon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
There are two ways to find Umbreon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The first is to find it already evolved in the wild, and the second is to strike up a great friendship with an Eevee and evolve it overnight.
The first method is much easier, since we find our Umbreon in the caves between Medali and Tagree Thicket, north of the Great Crater, below Glazed Mountain. In the middle of the two caves is a convenient Pokémon Center. Although the Pokédex entry says it’s a rare spawn, we do come across some quite often; Glimmet was much harder to spawn.
The second method requires more effort but feels more rewarding since you need to work your legs a bit. You need to have a great friendship with Eevee and make sure that Eevee doesn’t know any fairy moves when evolving, or it will turn into Sylveon.

To quickly befriend Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, there are two main ways. The best way is by going on a picnic, giving him sandwiches, playing with him and giving Eevee a bath. Do this several times and your friendship with Eevee will grow.
The next way is to use Berries to boost the friendship between the trainer and Pokemon, however this will decrease a stat. So if you want to use Eevee in a team, then the Berry route is not the best method to use. But unfortunately, it may be the fastest route. Weigh your options.

Once you think you have enough friendship with Eevee, make sure there are no fairy moves in Eevee’s arsenal. Fight with Eevee until he is about to level up or use EXP candies. Wait until it’s dark and then save the game. Level up your Eevee while it’s night, and if its friendship is high enough, it will evolve into Umbreon.
If evolution does not go off. Reload the game, have more picnics to eat more berries, and then try one more time.
