How Magneton evolves into Magnezone in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

When Magnezone was initially introduced in Pokémon Diamond and Sapphire, players needed to make their way to a particular mountain to evolve it. The mountain doesn’t always appear in Pokémon games, and thankfully, there’s an easier way to evolve Magneton into a Magnezone than having it level up while close to a mountain.

Now, you only need to provide your Magneton with a Thunder Stone, which will instantly evolve into a Magnezone. You can find a Thunder Stone in several locations, or you can choose to purchase it from the Delibird Presents store in Mesagoza, or any of the other stores in Paldea. You will need to earn your third Gym Badge before they show up as an available item. So long as you have a Thunder Stone, Magneton will evolve.

Magnezone is an Electric and Steel-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fire, Fighting, and Ground-type attacks, but it is resistant against Normal, Electric, Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Ghost, Steel, and Fairy-type moves. It’s also immune to Poison-type attacks, making it a fantastic addition to any team. It can be an incredibly defensive Pokémon in the correct line-up.
