Eevee appears to be able to evolve into Sylveon
Issue description: A Trainer can attempt to evolve their Eevee into Sylveon, however, the evolution does not take place and the Trainer receives a network error, as Sylveon is not available yet.

Evolving a Buddy sometimes causes the game to crash and get stuck on the post-login warning.
Issue description: Sometimes Trainers evolve their Buddy, and find that their Buddy disappears. This can be resolved if the Trainer is able to add a Buddy from any of their existing Pokémon while the game is still responsive. However, if they are unable to do so, the game will eventually become unresponsive and lock the player into the “Do not trespass” or “Do not drive” warnings indefinitely.
