Some item farming in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can get tricky or downright annoying. While there are some avenues for mass material acquisition, and select items have guaranteed drops, not every item type is so lucky. Here are the best places to find Dawn Stones, and what they do.

What do Dawn Stones do in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?

Dawn Stones are once again used for evolving Pokemon. All you need to do is have a Pokemon who can evolve via a Dawn Stone. Then, select the item from your bag, and select that Pokemon.

Here are all the evolutions you can trigger through a Dawn Stone:

  • Snorunt (♀)-> Froslass
  • Kirlia (♂) -> Gallade

Grab all the shiny spots you can off the ground in West Province (Area Three)

I had a lot of luck finding Dawn Stones in West Province (Area Three), around Zappapico. To find it, just head north around the great crater, above the town of Medali. Head into the mountains and look for shiny spots on the ground: they could contain Dawn Stones.

A fixed location can be found northwest of Medali. The exact location is in the gallery above.

Your Pokedex will give you one for free once you’ve caught 270 Pokemon

After catching 270 Pokemon and recording them in your Pokedex, go to the Pokedex menu (X) and earn it from the reward track.

You can find the full breakdown of the Pokedex reward system here.

You can also head back to the Porto Marinada auction house

While this tip applies to a variety of items, it could also be the path of least resistance. Go to the seaside town of Porto Marinada, which is found along the west coast of Paldea. Go into the center area and talk to the auction house: and a Dawn Stone could be offered there. If not, check back the next day.

This is the same auction house where you’ll complete the gym test for Cascarrafa. Remember you can save your game (and reload); and/or attempt to roll your Switch data forward to try and game the system.
