With the arrival of the 5th generation in Pokemon Go, a new evolution stone has appeared as in Generation 4 with the Sinnoh stone. This time, however, there is no question of evolving old pokemon species since the new Unova stone will be used mainly in the evolution of creatures that come from the 5th generation and therefore from the Unova region.
If you want to complete your Pokedex in Pokemon Go, you should therefore know how you can get the new Unova evolution stone. If you have no idea of the different methods available to you to have some in the game, we will detail below all the possibilities as well as the list of creatures that you can evolve with.
Where to find Unova stones in Pokemon Go?
Note that the Unova stone is new and that Niantic’s teams have deliberately made it rare enough that you don’t get all the Gen 5 pokemon so easily. And for good reason, Unova stone is obtained ONLY through field research missions. You will need to have completed seven field research mission tasks to have a (low) chance of obtaining a Unva stone as a reward on the seventh day. This solution is certainly temporary, other methods should appear as Pokemon Go is updated.
Which Pokémon can evolve with the Unova stone in Pokémon Go?
As we write this page, very few creatures can be evolved via the Unova stone and some extra candy. However, developers should not limit themselves to a handful of Generation 5 evolutions in all cases. For the moment, only Pansear, Pansage, Panpour, Lampent, Munna, Tynamo and Minccino can evolve using the Unova evolution stone.
- Pansear evolves in Simisear with a stone of Unova and 50 candies of the same type.
- Pansage evolves in Simisage with a Unova stone and 50 candies of the same type.
- Panpour evolves into a Simipour with a Unova stone and 50 candies of the same type.
- Lampent evolves into a Chandelure with a Unova stone and 100 candies of the same type.
- Munna evolves in Mushana with a Unova stone and 50 candies of the same type.
- Tynamo evolves into an Eelektross with a Unova stone and 50 candies of the same type.
- Minccino evolves in Cinccino with a Unova stone and 50 candies of the same type.
