Everyone's in the thick of getting themselves ready for the Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC that's going to be cracking on in June 2020. Whether this means throwing yourself into max raids or finally trying to complete your Pokedex by evolving key potential members of your Pokesquad, you're gonna find our Water Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide handy.

Water Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield Location Guide

So you're wanting to pick up a Water Stone in Pokemon Sword and Shield? Well, we reckon they're pretty useful, no matter what you're trying to evolve. You can use a Water Stone on the following Pokemon to ensure that they grow up big and strong:

  • Lotad
  • Eevee
  • Shellder

However, knowing which Pokemon need this elemental stone and actually acquiring one are two different things. If you're already familiar with acquiring other evolution stones like the Moon Stone, then the process here won't actually be all that different for you. There are multiple places that you can get a Leaf Stone, and prime of them is probably to head to Bridge Field. If you cross the bridge by Motostoke and look out for a raid hole at the intersection of a hill and a wall, you'll see a Pokeball just to the left of it - this will contain a Water Stone.

It's also possible to hit up the Digging Duo in the same part of the Wild Area - you pay these people in Watts and they basically dig up items for you. It's all entirely random, but you have a chance of getting your hands on evolutionary stones, including the Water Stone. Last but not least, you can also head over to the Lake of Outrage once your Rotom Bike can walk (spin?) on water; you'll be able to find a weird looking Stonehenge thing. Every rock in this formation will have some kind of evolutionary stone under it, and you could pick up a Water Stone eventually as these will respawn to give you more than one go.

Now that you've got our Water Stone Pokemon Sword and Shield location guide in hand, it should be pretty easy to get the Vaporeon of your dreams. Need help with something else in the Galar region? Check out these tips and tricks that we've put together for you:
