How to Find Evolution Stones in Pokemon Legends Arceus

Firstly, there are numerous methods to obtain the evolution stones and some ways will be quicker than others in order to collect them. The first main way to get them is at the trading post in Jubilife Village. The NPC merchant there will sell every evolution stone however, Merit Points can only be utilised to purchase them.

The next way they can be obtained is by searching rocks in the world, these can be opened by using your Pokemon as pretty much a battering ram (It will level up your friendship level with them) to shatter a rock which will unveil resources for the taking. Notably, there is only a small chance it will contain an evolution stone but there is still a chance and it can be an effective way to check for evolution stones.

The third way is through space-time distortions which there is a chance an evolution stone will be given to you as a loot reward. You will know there is a space-time distortion when you see what looks like a barrier forcefield forming in the world that is a bright purple colour. There is also a lot of VFX fluctuating around it.

Other ways to obtain evolution stones is by utilising the Ursaluna mount that will be able to seek rare items (e.g evolution stones) and dig them up if they stumble upon them. Of course, another method to get the evolution stones is through another merchant at the Ginko Cart that will sell them for money this time around however he sells one item a day so there will be a rare chance it appears in his inventory.
