POKEMON GO SINNOH STONE UPDATE 1 -
After a number of hours since Pokemon GO released the new update and new Sinnoh Stone evolution item, we now have a pretty good idea how this new item works and what Pokemon it can be used on.
This is based off first-hand reports from trainers around the world since the item went live at 9pm last night.
Based on what has been shared online in forums like The Silph Road Sub-Reddit, the new Gen 4 Sinnoh Stone evolution item can be obtained only from trainers 7-day Research Breakthrough.
Once you've got one you can then use the Sinnoh Stone to evolve various Gen 1-3 Pokemon into their new Gen 4 forms.
At the time of writing, there are only 12 Pokemon that can be evolved into their Gen 4 types right now.
This includes Rhydon evolving into Rhyperior, Magmar into Magmortar, Togetic into Togekiss, Murkrow into Honchkrow, Misdreavus into Mismagius, Gligar into Gliscor, Sneasel into Weavile, Porygon 2 into Porygon-Z, Roselia into Roserade and Dusclops into Dusknoir.
You'll also need 100 Candy to complete the process.
Original Story - Pokemon Go is about to get a new item which will allow players to evolve their Pokemon in the latest update.
The Sinnoh Stone is an item which can be used to make certain Sinnoh region Pokemon evolve.
Data miner Chrales discovered the code for the Stone, along with the description: “A special stone originally found in the Sinnoh region that can make certain species of Pokemon evolve. It is very tough and has a beautiful sheen.”
The Stone is made out of “Diamond and Pearl”.
The addition of the stone means fan favourites such as Tangela and Magmar will be granted new forms.
How to get the Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go:
Although The Sinnoh Stone is not available yet, it is expected you will be familiar with the way of getting hold of it.
The Sinnoh Stone will most probably drop at random through spinning Poke Stops and opening Gifts.
This is the way current evolutionary items are distributed in-game.
Niantic haven’t officially revealed any information about the subject, but we will update when we hear more.
It seems like there will be a staggering 22 Pokemon from Gen 1, 2 and 3 which the Sinnoh Stone can presumably be used on.
Here they are, as well as the Gen 4 creature they become with the use of the Sinnoh Stone.
