All Evolution stone locations in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
Two Fire Stones can be found in Ironworks, with one being tucked off to the side of the maze of booster pads, and the other being held by Fuego.
You’ll have to navigate through the maze to speak with him before receiving your reward.
In order to find the Thunder Stone, you’ll need to travel to Sunyshore City and look around for a rocky pathway behind the big tower.
Thunder Stones can also be dug up from underground, but committing to that strategy could be time-intensive, so do so at your own risk.
You can retrieve the Leaf Stone from the Floaroma Meadow just north of Floaroma Town. There will be a Pokeball holding the stone sitting in the middle of the meadow.
For the Water Stone, you’ll need to go surfing off of the edge of Route 213, the road that connects Pastoria City to the Valor Lakefront. The stone will be behind two trainers in the middle of the labyrinthine path that leads you through the rocks.
The Shiny Stone is at the tip-top of the cavern located at the center of Iron Island. You’ll have to find three total elevators to make it all the way up to the stone.
When you make it to the right place, the Shiny Stone will be sitting on the right-hand side ready to be collected.
The easiest Dusk Stone to collect is the one hidden in storage at the Galactic Warehouse, but you’ll need to pick up the Storage Key to access it.
Alternatively, there’s another Dusk Stone trapped by the boulder blockade on Victory Road, but you’ll have to have a pokemon with Strength if you want to reach it.
One Dawn Stone option is the rock wall on Route 225 inside the Battle Zone. You’ll have to maneuver through a small grassy area to reach the wall, but the stone rests atop a small ledge next to an NPC.
Another one of these stones can be found in the Snowpoint Underground of Whiteout Cave all the way to the bottom left of the playable area.
Finding an Oval Stone is fairly easy, as you’ll be able to pick one up from the second floor of the Lost Tower.
There will be a trainer waiting for you on the other side of the ball, but that should be the only obstacle blocking your path.
The Everstone can be traded for in Snowpoint City at the northwestern-most house in the city. In the house, Mindy will ask you to trade a Medicham in exchange for a Haunter holding the item.
