Evolution in Pokemon Sun and Moon often involves Evolution Stones, and usually it isn’t so easy to find these rare commodities in the Alola Region. The beaches are a great place to hang out with Pokemon, but no matter what level their happiness reaches, there’s no way to evolve without specific Evolution Stones.

There are Evolution Stones for each type of Pokemon, and while not every Pokemon requires a specific stone to evolve, many do — so many, it’s probably best to just collect every single stone available. Because Evolution Stones are so tough to find, we’ve cobbled together a list of locations to help you track them all down.
