How to Get An Unova Stone in Pokemon GO

So, you want an Unova Stone. Or maybe you're one of the few who aren't sure what one of these actually does? Well, we can help in either regard. You're going to want an Unova Stone if you want to undertake the following evolutions:

  • Pansage into Simisage
  • Panpour into Simipour

Each of the above options will also require that you have 100 Poke Candy to get the evolution process going as well, so make sure that you have the necessary goodies when you go looking for an Unova Stone. 

Alright, now for the task of actually getting one of those stones. You have to get seven days worth of field research under your belt to get an Unova Stone.

Once you've gotten all those tasks ticked off, you'll be able to earn a reward and there's a chance for this reward to be an Unova Stone. Yup, that's basically it - you have to hope that the reward you get for cracking through research tasks ends up being an Unova Stone.
