Pokemon Go: Sun Stones And What To Do With Them
After skipping Gen 1 stones, the Sun Stone is here with Gen 2. Here's how to get it.
Pokemon Go has been going for a while now, but as more content gets added, more questions pop up for those who dare test their mettle with that most holy of trials — to catch 'em all. Often it can feel like the simplest questions are the ones that can be a pain to find answers to within the game, due to how mechanics have changed from classic Pokemon to Pokemon Go. In this case, the question is how to evolve certain types of creatures. In Gen 1 of Pokemon Go, pokemon like Raichu did away with their stone evolutions to just use candy. Now, however, stones are making a comeback, and the stone we'll focus on today is the Sun Stone.
How to get Sun Stones and what to do with them
First things first, you'll need to get your hands on a Sun Stone. Unfortunately, there's no real secret tip or trick to get one, and you can't just go digging in trash cans or asking every guy in a lab coat you see like in Pokemon proper. Instead, to get your hands on one of these goodies you'll have to go out on the town and hit every pokestop you can find. On the plus side, if you manage to get a daily bonus streak going with pokestops, the seventh day is guaranteed to net you some kind of evolutionary item, so that could be your chance to nab a Sun Stone finally.
Once you've got one, you can put it to use evolving one of two Gen 2 critters. If you've got a Gloom, you can turn that sucker into a beautiful Bellossom by simply following the usual evolutionary steps. On the other hand, if you're sitting on a Sunkern, you can help it sprout into a Sunflora.
