Pokémon Go Sinnoh Stone - how to get the Sinnoh Stone for Gallade, Froslass, Tangrowth and much more

How to get 17 new Pokémon - including Gallade, Froslass and Tangrowth - using a Sinnoh Stone.

Pokémon Go's Sinnoh Stone is a special evolution item that allows you to transform many of the game's existing creatures into Gen 4 versions.

Not only is it is exciting to see many fan favourites - such as Togetic and Magmar - be granted new forms, but it makes many of the game's best Pokemon even more powerful - including Rhydon.

There are many other special evolution items too - such as the Metal Coat for Steelix and Scizor, the Dragon Scale for Kingdra, the King's Rock for Slowking and Politoed, and the Up-Grade for Porygon2.

How to get the Sinnoh Stone in Pokémon Go

We learned of the Sinnoh Stone through early in-game leaks (Chrales), which told us how it can "make certain species of Pokemon evolve" in the description.

Regardless of which creature you use the Sinnoh Stone on - the full list is mentioned later in the article - the methods in how to get the Sinnoh Stone remains the same:

This is different to other special evolution items so far - which require either the seventh day of your PokéStop Daily Bonus streak, or a rare drop from spinning standard Poké Stops and opening Gifts.

For now, it means it'll take some time for players to get every creature - right now, 11 weeks to be exact! (Unless, of course, you can trade some from others...)

Which Pokémon can use Sinnoh Stone in Pokémon Go?

There are a staggering 22 Gen 4 creatures that evolve from previous generations.

The ones that are currently available are as follows - their newest additions first - with their previous evolution listed, and the Gen 4 creature they become with the use of either a Sinnoh Stone or Lure at that point.

Note you'll also need to use 100 Candy to evolve them, and with some creatures, a specific gender:
