How to Obtain Evolutionary Stones

Get them from the Digging Duo

The most efficient way to obtain evolutionary stones is to receive them from the Digging Duo in Bridge Field. For 500 watts, you can receive a random item, and occasionally that item will be an evolutionary stone.

You are going to need a lot of watts if you aim to pick up many stones, so be sure and visit many Pokemon Dens to collect as many as possible!

All can be found at the Lake of Outrage

You can pick up all evolutionary stones at the Lake of Outrage. However, you cannot get them until the Rotom Bike can go over water, so be sure and go there after winning your 6th badge.

Can you purchase them?

We have not currently discovered any method of buying evolutionary stones. It is very possible that you cannot buy evolutionary stones in this game, so when you do have them, be sure and select which Pokemon to use them on very careful so that you do not waste them.

Pokemon that normally require stones to evolve can be found in the wild

Although evolutionary stones are quite rare, many Pokemon that can normally only be obtained by evolving with a stone can be found in the wild. When you cannot find the stone you need to evolve a Pokemon, you may just be able to capture it's evolved form in the wild instead.

When you evolve kirlia (male) with a dawn stone it should evolve into Gallade not Gardevoir. Hope this helps out!!
