So, you're after the Dusk Stone in Pokemon Sword and Shield. We don't blame you: it's a handy one to have in your arsenal if you're looking to make yourself a Ghost Pokemon expert. If you're wanting to round out your team with some evolutions of spooky critters, then you'll definitely want to know where to find this rock. Here's our Dusk Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide to give you a helping hand.

Dusk Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield Location Guide

If you're wanting to find a Dusk Stone, then you probably already have an idea of the Pokemon that you actually want to use it on. Here, we're talking the following in Pokemon Sword and Shield who will require this fancy stone to unlock their full potential:

  1. Doublade
  2. Lampent

These two terrifying(ly cute) Pokemon will need to be Dusk Stone'd up to hit their final evolution forms - we're talking Aegislash and Chandelure respectively. If you're wanting more specific advice on evolving a Doublade into an Aegislash, we've actually got a whole guide that we've relinked here for your convenience. 

Now, on to where you can actually find a Dusk Stone. There's one place where you're guaranteed one, and that's in Stow-on-Side. If you flit on over to behind the Pokemon Center, it'll be waiting for you in the usual Pokeball. However, if you find yourself wanting more, there are a number of ways to get your hands on a Dusk Stone which can translate to any other evolutionary stone that you might be seeking. 

First up as an alternative is the Digging Duo. You'll already be familiar with these Bridge Field mates if you've gone hunting for stones before - essentially, you fork over some watts and in return they'll go on a digging spree for random items. You'll have a chance to obtain an evolutionary stone from this, though it's entirely random. 

You can also head to the Lake of Outrage once your Rotom Bike can help you walk on water (fairly late in the game), and make straight for the Stonehenge-esque circle of boulders that will be nearby. Every single boulder will contain some kind of evolutionary stone, and you just have to interact with them to pick those stones up. If you don't get a Dusk Stone out of these, the good news is that the stones here will respawn over time so check back in a few more hours and you might get lucky.

Now that you've got our Dusk Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide, it should be easy enough to get one and to have the Aegislash of your dreams. Need help with something else while you explore Galar? Check out these other tips and tricks that we've put together for you:
