Pokemon Go got a new evolution item, the Sinnoh Stone, that allows players to evolve certain Pokemon when using it.
The special stone originally found in the Sinnoh region can make certain species of Pokemon evolve and this special evolution item can be obtainable in-game via the 7th Research Breakthrough for now – Update Sinnoh Stone is no longer guaranteed from Research Breakthrough.
I’m saying for now, because Niantic’s Pokemon Go Community Manager confirmed to TSR that Sinnoh Stone will be available in other ways in the future.
We might get the evolution item via:
- Raid rewards
- Field Research
This is not confirmed at the moment, and as soon as we have something you’ll be the first to know.
Now, let’s take a look at the current Pokemon that require Sinnoh Stone. In addition, each final evolution requires 100 candy and 1 Sinnoh Stone.
Sinnoh Evolutions that Require Sinnoh Stone
- Porygon → Porygon2 → Porygon Z
- Magby → Magmar → Magmortar
- Rhyhorn → Rhydon → Rhyperior
- Elekid → Electabuzz → Electivire
- Togepi → Togetic → Togekiss
- Sneasel → Weavile
- Gligar → Gliscor
- Murkrow → Honchkrow
- Misdreavus → Mismagius
- Duskull → Dusclops → Dusknoir
- Bidew → Roselia → Roserade
For last, evolution candy costs have been reduced for many species that have a Gen 4 evolution from 50 to 25.
