Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Evolution Stone Locations: Where to get Dawn Stone, Dusk Stone, Moon Stone, and Ice Stone

Evolution Stones unlock the true potential of powerful Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Update: We keep finding more Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Evolution Stones, so we've added new locations for both Moon Stones and Ice Stones.

Just like in every other iteration of the ever-changing series, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Evolution Stones are rare and powerful items which help you to unlock the dormant potential of certain Pokemon.

As well as much-loved mascots like Pikachu, brand-new creatures in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet also use evolution stones to ascend to a new form, including Capsakid - who turns into the unique, Grass/Fire mixed attacker, Scovillain - and Tadbulb, who evolves into the incredibly cute Bellibolt.

Some Pokemon Scarlet and Violet evolution stones are relatively easy to come across. After the precedent set by the first generation of Pokemon games, the elemental stones - that’s Fire Stones, Water Stones, Leaf Stones and Thunder Stones - are all available for purchase from stores after a certain point in your adventure.

However, Dawn Stones, Dusk Stones, Moon Stones, Sun Stones, Shiny Stones and Ice Stones are all much harder to lay your hands on and can only be found at certain locations throughout Paldea. These are random items, not fixed like the ones you find in Poke Balls, and they show up as small golden sparkles on the ground, just like any other random item.

Here are the scattered locations of every Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Evolution Stone you could ever need to evolve your team.

How to get more evolution stones in Scarlet and Violet

Once you have at least four Gym badges, you can take part in auctions at Port Marinada, north of Asado Desert, where you may find evolution stones up for grabs. The auction house's available items change each real-world day, so if you're desperate for a stone and can't find what you want, you can adjust your Switch's internal clock to force a reset.

Just bear in mind that auction house prices can rise exceptionally high, so you might end up shelling out hundreds of thousands of Poke Dollars just for one stone.
