Pokemon Sun and Moon Guide: Where To Find Evolution Stones


Pokemon Sun and Moon players can force certain Pokemon evolutions with the help of the game's Evolution Stones. Here is where players can find or purchase each stone.

Pokemon Sun and Moon have been out for over a week now and players are hard at work uncovering all of the games secrets and catching every Pokemon available. Part of the key to filling up the new Sun and Moon Pokedex is evolving Pokemon. Subsequently, knowing where to find the game's Evolution Stones makes that task much easier.

Evolution Stones are a staple of the Pokemon franchise and can be used to force evolutions from certain Pokemon. There are a number of different stones and each one has control over different groups of Pokemon. The stones are often associated with controlling Eevee's evolution (which is done differently in Pokemon GO), but they have other uses as well.

Here is where Pokemon Sun and Moon players can currently obtain each of the different Evolution Stones...

  • Using one on Eevee will transform it into a Flareon, but the stone can also be used to evolve other fire-types
