Pokemon Scarlet and Violet also have the mechanics of Evolvement of the Pokemons that are very necessary at some point in the game. Evolving Pokemons will increase their stat as well as their level which will then deal great damage to other Pokemons in the battles. One of the main items required for the Evolvement of Pokemons is the Evolution Stones. There are different types of Evolution Stones in the game and players can use them to evolve a specific species of Pokemon.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Evolution Stones in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Getting Evolution Stones
There are many types of Evolution Stones in the game and almost all of them require specific progress in the story of the game to get them. There are 10 different Evolution Stones that you can find in the game but most of them can be found in one place if you have progressed enough in the story. The safe point for you to progress in the story to get all the important Evolution Stones is to get 3 Gym Badges.
Gym Badges can only be obtained by defeating the Gym Leaders in the Victory Road Path. You will need to explore and find the new cities and then defeat the Gym Leader of their city. There is one Gym Building in every major city of the game that you have to discover and then pass their Gym Test to challenge their Leader. After defeating the Gym Leader, you will get the respective Gym Badge. As there is not any specific order to play the game so you can defeat any three gym leaders to get three gym badges.
Once you have obtained three Gym Badges, you will unlock some specific Battle Items in Delibird Presents Shops. These Delibird Presents Shops are available in every major city and town of Paldea so go to any Delibird Shop and view the Battle Items. In the Battle Items, you will see the following Evolution Stones ready to be bought.
- Fire Stone
- Thunder Stone
- Leaf Stone
- Water Stone
All four of these stones are Evolution Stones and they are used to evolve specific species of Pokemon. If you have particular Pokemon in your team and if you use the respective stone on the Pokemon then that Pokemon will evolve into a new shape. You can get all four of these Evolution Stones for a total of 12,000 Poke Coins. Each Stone costs 3,000 Poke Coins which is relatively cheaper than the Auction.
You can also find these stones out in the wild but if you don’t want to specifically look out for them then you can just go to the shop and buy them to use on your Pokemon. However, if you like to place a bid in the auction then you can do that as well but it would be expensive because you will have to outbid all of the opponents. Either way, you will be able to get these stones and start evolving your Pokemon.
