Pokemon Go: How To Get Unova Stones And Evolve Gen 5 Pokemon

Recommended Posts


The first wave of Gen 5 Pokemon have officially invaded Pokemon Go. Players around the world can now catch a handful of monsters originally from the Unova region in Pokemon Black and White versions, and to coincide with their arrival, Niantic has also introduced a new evolutionary item to the game called the Unova Stone.

Similar to the Sinnoh Stone that debuted earlier this year, the Unova Stone is used to evolve certain Pokemon from its respective region, making it a valuable item to have. However, getting your hands on one will require quite a bit of work. If you're unsure of how to obtain one, we break down how to get an Unova Stone and which Pokemon require it to evolve below.

How To Get Unova Stones

At present, the only known way to get an Unova Stone in Pokemon Go is by achieving a Research Breakthrough, which is tied to how many Field Research tasks you complete. As a refresher, you can obtain Field Research tasks by spinning the Photo Disc at Poke Stops. The first task you clear each day will reward you with a stamp, and once you've collected seven stamps, you'll achieve a Research Breakthrough and earn a handful of items--including potentially an Unova Stone. However, it's not guaranteed that you'll get the stone, so you may need to achieve a few Breakthroughs before you finally obtain one.

Which Pokemon Evolve Using Unova Stones?

Only a handful of Gen 5 Pokemon are currently available in Pokemon Go, and among them, four require an Unova Stone--as well as a number of Candies--to evolve. That includes the three elemental monkeys Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour, each of which is currently exclusive to certain regions. You can see the full list of Pokemon that require an Unova Stone to evolve below:

  • Lampent -> Chandelure
  • Pansage -> Simisage
  • Pansear -> Simisear
  • Panpour -> Simipour
