Pokémon GO – Sinnoh Stone: how to get the Sinnoh Stone for Gallade, Froslass, Tangrowth and many more

Sinnoh stone from Pokémon GO is a special evolution item that allows you to transform many of the creatures in the game into Gen 4 versions.

Not only is it exciting to see many fan favorites, such as Togetic and Magmar, in new forms, but also because it makes many of the best Pokémon, including Rhydon, more powerful.

Update (Nov 7): We have added new Gen 4 Evolutions that use the Sinnoh Stone! They are in the table below, with the latest added first.

How to get the Sinnoh stone in Pokémon Go

We learned about the first data on the Sinnoh stone through in-game leaks (Chrales) that told us that it could “evolve certain species of Pokémon” in the description.

Regardless of which creature you use the Sinnoh Stone on (the full list is mentioned in the article), the way to get it is the same.

  • Odds of getting the Sinnoh Stone as a reward for completing seven field investigations.
  • You can also get it by completing PvP trainer battles.
  • Defeat a Team Go Rocket leader

It’s different from other special evolution items so far, and for now means players will take a while to collect all the creatures (right now, 11 weeks, to be exact!) Unless, of course, you can trade it with others. ..
