Evolution items in Pokemon Go are nothing new.
Pokemon Go’s Sinnoh Stone is the latest special evolution item, allowing players to transform some of the game’s existing creatures into exciting Generation 4 versions.
However some Pokemon Go players have been left frustrated, complaining it feels far too tricky to get hold of a Sinnoh Stone.
The recent introduction of Sinnoh Stones to Pokemon Go have already caused quite a stir.
And the buzz about Sinnoh Stones is only going to grow, as Pokemon Go developer Niantic is finally giving players the opportunity grab lots of Sinnoh Stones.
This is because the Pokemon Go February Community Day, on February 16, will allow players to earn 10 of the Sinnoh Stones.
Five stones can be earned by challenging Team Leaders, and players can gain the other half by taking part in Trainer Battles.
How to earn Sinnoh Stones in Pokemon Go:
Sinnoh Stone’s primary purpose is to help certain species of Pokemon evolve.
The method involved in acquiring a Sinnoh Stone remain the same, regardless of which Pokemon it is used on.
The Sinnoh Stone may well arrive when collecting a seventh day Field Research reward.
And there is also a chance of one dropping after completing a PvP Trainer Battle.
As already mentioned, Pokemon Go February Community Day offers the opportunity to acquire 10 Sinnoh Stones in a single day.
This differs to other special evolution items encountered so far, requiring either the seventh day of your PokeStop Daily Bonus streak, or (an even rarer) drop from spinning standard PokeStops and opening Gifts.
So for the present, it will take 11 weeks for players to capture every creature, without taking trading into account.
Which Pokemon can use Sinnoh Stone?
An unprecedented 22 Gen 4 creatures can be evolved from previous generations.
Only 11 Pokemon are currently available in the augmented reality game.
