If you’ve been cracking into Pokemon Sword and Shield, then you’ll note that a number of legacy Pokemon are going to require certain elemental stones to evolve. You’ll encounter different Pokemon fitting that description depending on the version of the game that you have, but the sentiment will be the same, especially if you’re someone that wants to collect a whole team of Eevees. Check out our Fire Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide for tips on where to find this stone and who you might want to use it on.
Fire Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield Location Guide
If you’re looking to evolve one of the classic Fire type Pokemon in the game, look no further than a trusty Fire Stone. We’re not just talking Flareon here, folks. If you’ve picked up Pokemon Sword, then you’ll be able to net yourself a Vulpix which will evolve into a Ninetails via Fire Stone. On the other hand, if you’ve picked up Pokemon Shield, you will be able to net yourself a Growlithe which will evolve into an Arcanine via Fire Stone. Either way, you’re going to need one of these bad boys.
Not sure where to find one? Well, you can actually pick one up relatively early in the game. Bike your way over to East Lake Axewell, which is on the outskirts of Motostoke. Head directly East and then North: you’re going to be looking out for a bridge to cross which will take you on the path to Hammerlocke. After you’ve crossed the bridge, take a hard left and follow the path between the patches of tall grass. Go right up the small incline and you’ll see a Pokeball sandwiched between two pillars. Voila! This is the Fire Stone, so just pick it up and get going.
Now that you’ve got our Fire Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide in hand, you too can evolve your Growlithe or your Vulpix in absolutely no time at all. There’s no level restriction on evolving Vulpix, for example, so as soon as you catch one (which can be as early as level 11), you can chuck this Fire Stone at it and get yourself an upgrade.
