1– How to get Sinnoh Stones in Pokémon Go (and what is Sinnoh stone)


This post’s specialty is that it entertains both advance and beginner-level Pokémon Go enthusiasts.

Let’s start from the beginning.


What is Sinnoh Stone in Pokémon Go?

As most of you already know that, it’s no new very rare evolution item for specific (22 species) Generation 1 & Generation 2 Pokémon to evolve them into Generation 4 stage. Plus you need some Candy for that too, (but as Candy is not rare therefore not an issue.)

For example, you can evolve Rhydon into Rhyperior using Sinnoh Stone and 100 candy or Sneasel into Weavile.

It’s exclusive to level 10 trainers or above, used for all cross-generation evolutions.


In simple words, Sinnoh stone is required for some Gen 1 and 2 Pokémons to change into their better version (Gen 4). It’s an item like Unova stone (if it helps to understand) but for a different Gen range.


How to get Sinnoh Stones in Pokémon Go?

First of all, it’s not at PokéStops and you have to be patient. Secondly, there is no 100% guarantee of getting Sinnoh Stone even if you do the struggle, but below are the least difficult ways to get Sinnoh stone (with the highest probability.)

Can get Sinnoh Stones from:

  1. After completing the 7th day of the Field Research (Highest chances)
  2. Doing 3 PVP trainer battles (free battle, not Go Battle League) per day + 1 team leader battle per day (Second Highest chances)
  3. Battling or defeating a Team Go Rocket Leader e.g Arlo, Cliff, or Sierra (Good Chances)
  4. Battling 3 team leaders on Community Day (Good Chances)
  5. Participating in Go Battle league (Good Chances)


  • Spinning the regular PokéStop will hardly do any good for getting Sinnoh Stone.
  • There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to finding Sinnoh Stone, therefore there are chances you may not get Sinnoh stone even after doing the drill.
  • For some it may take a couple of weeks, since you first start playing to get your first Sinnoh Stone.)

As mentioned earlier Sinnoh Stone is currently only available to trainers level 10 or above 10.


The above-mentioned 5 ways to get Sinnoh stones are placed in descending order.

  • This means the first method has the highest probability (no guarantee) of the dropping of Sinnoh Stone as a reward at the end of your seventh field research day. For those new, each Field Research day will get you one stamp, and 7 field research days = 7 stamps. Here you may see Sinnoh Stone dropping.


  • Daily taking part in three PVP battles and one team leader battle has also shown quite promising results when it comes to dropping of Sinnoh Stone. It has second-highest probability after Field Research. Also, make sure you do (PVP) free battles, not the Go Battle League.


  • If you have done the above two and still have some (daily) time for Pokémon Go, then you can do a battle with Team Go Rocket Leader.


  • It has been seen that players get up to 10 Sinnoh stones if they do more than one battle with Team Leaders and PVP on the Pokémon Go Community Day. The Community Day is a once-a-month event therefore doing point 2, (which is participating in PVP battles and Team Leader battles) can enormously increase your chances of Winning Sinnoh Stones. Though instead of doing just one Team Leader Battle you should do about three during Community Day, along with PVP.


  • If all the rest has done by you and either you have found some Sinnoh, but want some more OR unfortunately for some reason didn’t find a single one, then you can also try your luck in Go Battle League in your extra time. Otherwise the above-mentioned with reap you the best results, if you keep doing them.


  • Even if you don’t win the Sinnoh Stone after doing some of these tasks (which is highly unlikely), it means you may need some more time (you should do as per the methods mentioned above and be patient.
  • If you don’t see the Sinnoh Stone you may see some other evolution items or some rare candy)
