The Sun Stone item in Pokemon Go can help trainers evolve certain Pokemon into their final forms. Here’s how you can get a Sun Stone in the game and which Pokemon can evolve by using them. 

Finding evolution items in Pokemon games has always been tricky, but they’re even more difficult to come across in Pokemon Go as trainers can’t simply visit a specific location like they could in the mainline games.

In Pokemon Go, finding certain items is simply up to chance — which also happens to be the case for the Sun Stone.

How to get a Sun Stone

Sun Stones can only be acquired by spinning PokeStops and Gyms (and occasionally as Field Research rewards). With a measly 1% drop rate, getting your hands on one of the stones is a pretty difficult task.

To make matters worse, Sun Stones drop alongside the game’s other Evolution Items, meaning your chances of getting one are even slimmer, as you could end up with a different item instead.

Here are our tips for getting a Sun Stone fast:

  • Spin as many PokeStops and Gyms as you can.
  • Visit a popular area where there are a lot of PokeStops, allowing you to maximize the amount you can spin in a short period of time.
  • On the 7-day streak of your PokeStop Daily Bonus, you’ll receive a special evolution item. If you’re lucky, it might very well be the Sun Stone!
  • There are sometimes event-exclusive Field Research tasks that reward evolution items like the Sun Stone, so keep an eye out for them.

While obtaining a Sun Stone isn’t the easiest process in the world, with some time and patience, you might be rewarded.
