    Say I get two eevees through the GTS, from japan.
    They're not nicknamed, so the names are just whateverthehell the japanese name for eevee is.
    I then trade them to a friend (they lack a ditto and their eevee is male).

    The friend evolves them. What happens to their names?
    Does it stay the japanese eevee?
    Does it become the japanese for whatever form it evolved into?
    Does it become the english for whatever form it evolved into?

    I'm pretty sure they become the English names of the evolved Pokemon.

    This is because if they weren't nicknamed, the "nickname" flag is turned off, even after trading to a different language, so after evolving, it takes the name of the evolved Pokemon in whatever language the evolution occured on (English).

    First of all... if that weird thing of name the eevee has it resulted to be a nickname, the japanese word will stay like his name...

    If it doesnt have really a nickname, the eevee will get the name of the evolution in english(if you are playing the (U) game lol)

    They would stay Japanese since you can't change the nickname of a Pokemon that isn't yours, and in your case the Pokemon isn't yours because it was traded. The game determines whether it is yours by comparing your ID and SID to the Pokemon's ID and SID, if they match, it is yours.

    Yeah the names change to the language of the Pok'emon normally in the game.
    Even with the menu translation of the J rom when I evolved my Cyndaquil (named in Japanese, gotten before applying the patch) into Quilava after applying the patch, Quilava was just named in English.
