Head to the Meet Up spot in the Wild Area outside your hometown to get Gigantamax Eevee.

To get your Giganamax Eevee, head to the corner of the train station, near where you exited the train, and talk to the woman here. She’ll make mention of your adventures with an Eevee previously and then gift you with an Eevee that is capable of using the Gigantamax technology that the Professor equipped you with earlier in the opening bits of the game.

Now that you have the Gigantamax Eevee, it’s important to note that only this Eevee can use the Gigantamax capabilities. Any other Eevee found throughout Pokemon Sword and Shield won’t be able to use the special powers that make their debut in the two newest titles for the series. You will, of course, still need to go through the usual hoops to make use of Gigantamax powers, which means finding a place of power and then using it.
