by William Schwartz

Purchase stones to make your Pokemon more powerful.

In Pokémon Let’s Go you can make the creatures that you catch much stronger when you evolve them.  To do that you’re going to need Evolution Stones with different elemental properties that coincide with the Pokémon that you want to evolve.  Using a Fire Stone, Thunder Stone, Water Stone, Leaf Stone, or Ice Stone on your Pokémon can make them a much stronger version with better abilities and more powerful moves to use in battle.

These Evolution Stones need to be purchased in the game at specific vendors.  One vendor that sells Evolution Stones is the one in Celadon City.  You won’t be able to go there straight away.  You’ll need to progress through the story of the game a bit before you get there.  The Department Store in the city will sell you the stones that you need to evolve.  They will cost you 5000 Poké Dollars for each stone that you want to purchase.  All of the evolution stones can be purchased here, except for the Moon Stone.  That will need to be found on Mt. Moon.

How to Mega Evolve

Almost all Pokémon can evolve in some form or another, but a smaller selection of them can evolve even further with a Mega Evolution.  In order to do a mega evolution you must get the Key Stone and the Mega Stone for that specific Pokémon.  These stones can be found while playing the story of Pokémon Let’s Go before you challenge the Viridian Gym.

How to Evolve Pikachu and Eevee
