How To Get Shiny Stone In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet

In this guide we will explain how you can get your hands on Shiny stone in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet to evolve Floette.

While Shiny Stone has always been a rare item in Pokemon games, it is even more difficult to find in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Due to the nature of this evolution stone, Shiny Stone in Pokemon SV is only available very late in the game and from just one spot.

Shiny stone serves only one purpose, the evolution of Floette to Florges in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Unlike some other stones like Thunder, Shiny Stone cannot be bought from the Delibird Presents store. In this guide below you will get to know how to find Shiny stones in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Pokemon SV Shiny Stone location

There are multiple ways of obtaining a shiny stone. Still, the most basic and straightforward way is through making constant progress in your Pokedex.

Once trainers have caught 150 pocket monsters, they can obtain a Shiny Stone through Professor Jacq as a reward. Secondly, you can also find multiple Shiny Stones scattered across the map.

Across the Paldea map

The main location we have discovered where you can find a shiny stone in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is the Socarrat trail in the southern province (Area Six). However, you’ll need the climbing ability for this area.

Climbing can be unlocked by defeating False Dragon Titan (Dondozo and Tatsugiri). Go east of Alfornada to the location shown on the map above. Follow the path and you will see the shiny stone on a hill.

Auction house in Porto Marinada

Players can also buy a Shiny Stone at the Auction House in Porto Marinada. Visit this auction-based shop, and you’ll find various items on display that are changed in real-time. So, if you cannot find an item today, you might come across it tomorrow or next week.

However, if you don’t have the time to wait, you can bypass this by changing the date in your system, which will reset the items on display.
