Where to get Shiny Stone

With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players can shape their teams however they want. This includes offering a vast selection of critters to catch and tame. In addition, there are ways to further expand the roster using Hero Items, consumables such as Battle Items, and more.

As their name suggests, Evolution Stones are used to evolve certain types of Pokemon. This guide offers a look at how to get the Shiny Stone – which falls under the Evolution Stones category – in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Many Pokemon cannot evolve on their own, so they need the help of items such as Evolution Stones to do so. There are several ways to get a shiny stone in the game. Three methods to do this are listed below:

  • Near the source of the Alfornada waterfall: Northeast of Alfornada you will find a circular body of water, the source of the waterfall. In the area you should be able to see a shiny stone between the grass. It can be picked up and added to your backpack. This is in the southern province (area six)
  • Complete Pokedex Challenge: Scarlet and Violet reward players for achieving certain milestones. One is registering 150 Pokemon to your Pokedex, which should earn you a free Shiny Stone from Professor Jacq. Go to the rewards section of the Pokedex app and redeem it after you hit the milestone.
  • Porto Marinada Auction: The auction at the Porto Marinada location has several items to bid on, including a shiny stone. The items are rotated, so you may have to try updating the auction list again and see if it appears. If so, make sure you place the highest bid on the stone to buy it. The auction will also not unlock until the Cascarrafa Water-Type Gym is defeated.

While the Shiny Stone allows a variety of Pokemon to evolve, there’s only one valid creature that benefits from it in Scarlet and Violet: Floette. This is a Fairy type introduced in Generation 6. It evolves from Flabebe at level 16.


Floette overview and statistics

Overview

  • Type: fairy
  • Ability: Flower Veil – Prevents ally Grass types from getting status conditions or having their stats lowered
  • Ability (Hidden): Symbiosis – The user sends their held item to the ally if the partner uses up their held item

  • Attack: 45
  • Defense: 47
  • Sp. Attack: 75
  • Sp. Defense: 98

Floette’s stats aren’t particularly impressive, but the Sp. Attack and Sp. Defense stands out. Exposing it to the Shining Stone makes it evolve into Florges. This can be done on any level as long as you have the item to use on it.


Florges overview and statistics

Overview Florges:

  • Type: fairy
  • Ability: Flower Veil – Prevents ally Grass types from getting status conditions or having their stats lowered

A big improvement from his pre-evolution, Florges’ special stats are much better. With a total base stat of 552, this creature is one of the best Fairy types in the game.
