How to get Unova Stones in Pokémon Go | All Pokémon that need a Unova Stone to Evolve

Pokemon GO Update July 2016

A brand new stone, known as an Unova Stone, has just been added into Pokémon GO and players are fuming.

While the Sinnoh Stone made sense, as it forces players to collect one to evolve a Pokémon from another region that had an exclusive evolution in the Sinnoh region, the Unova stone serves no purpose but to stop you from completing the Pokédex in a quick pace.

The stone is used to evolve Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, Munna, Minccino, Eelektrik, and Lampent into their next evolutions and are incredibly hard to come across.

Well, just like Sinnoh Stones, the only current way to get them is through Research Breakthroughs. That’s it. There is no other special method to get them like doing trainer battles every few days and its all down to luck.

It’s honestly disappointing that Niantic seems keen to keep this feature going when it upsets a whole bunch of its fans, so let us hope that it gets removed sometime in the future. Preferably soon.
