Niantic has introduced many evolution items like Sinnoh Stones and Metal Coats in Pokemon Go. As a result, there are many powerful Pokemon that you can obtain only after collecting their desired evolution item.

From weekly Field Research rewards to PvP battles, here’s every method to get a Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go.

There are over 20 Pokemon that you get only after using a Sinnoh Stone.

How to get Sinnoh Stones in Pokemon Go

Take part in the Go Battle League

The first method to get Sinnoh Stones in Pokemon Go is by winning PvP battles in the Go Battle League. In a set of five battles, the second reward can be unlocked by winning two battles. Even though it is a mystery reward, there’s a high possibility of it being a Sinnoh Stone.

The league (Great, Master, or Ultra) doesn’t affect the odds of getting the evolution item.

Trainer Battles and play Pokemon Go with friends

In the Go Battle League section, you will find Candela, Blanche, and Spark who represent Team Valor, Team Mystic, and Team Instinct, respectively. Winning battles against these trainers grants a random reward once a day and luckily, the list contains Sinnoh Stones.

Playing with your friends is probably the most fun way to get Sinnoh Stones in Pokemon Go. You get three rewards per day for training/battling with them and winning is not a compulsion. Although not guaranteed, one of the three rewards can be a Sinnoh Stone.

Field Research

Last but not least, Sinnoh Stones are sometimes a reward for completing the weekly Field Research in Pokemon Go. If you’re fortunate enough, community events occasionally introduce limited-time research questlines that hand out Sinnoh Stones.

It is worth noting that you must be Level 10 or above in Pokemon Go to get Sinnoh Stones. The aforementioned methods won’t work if you don’t fulfill this criterion.

Best Pokemon to evolve using Sinnoh Stone

The best Pokemon to evolve using a Sinnoh Stone include:


You can use a Sinnoh Stone to get a Togekiss in Pokemon Go and simply thrash the Dragon-type Pokemon in the Master League. Togekiss belongs to the Fairy type which is particularly strong against intimidating types like Fighting, Dark, and Dragon.

Considering that Dragon-type Pokemon are tough to beat in Raids, Gyms, and PvP battles, it is great to have a strong Fairy-type counter like Togekiss.


Weavile is an Ice and Dark-type Pokemon and having it on your team is highly recommended in Pokemon Go. Players can try having a Weavile that knows Ice attacks because it provides the double ‘Super Effective’ against Dragon-type opponents.

Weavile is one of the best attackers in Pokemon Go and stands out because of its offensive stats. It can compete with many Legendary Pokemon in the game and even defeat some such as Giratina and Cresellia.

A Roserade that knows Grass Knot could be your favorite Grass-type Pokemon in Pokemon Go. A handful of non-Legendary Grass-type Pokemon like Venusaur and Sceptile can overshadow Roserade but this does not stop it from making this list.

Roserade unleashes its true potential in PvE experiences like raids, Team Go Rocket Leader battles, and Gyms. In PvP battles, do not send it first as Grass is vulnerable to many types. Roserade is brilliant as a backup attacker and can help you take down the likes of Mamoswine, Groudon, Swampert, Metagross, and Kyogre in seconds.

Mamoswine is an Ice-type Pokemon that not only deals great damage but also does well defensively. It is one of the best Pokemon in the entire game and players usually use it with a Ground-Ice moveset.

Mamoswine has its fair share of weaknesses against Fighting, Steel, Fire, Water, and Grass types. However, it can easily defeat Dragon, Electric, Flying, and other Ground Pokemon.
