Just like every other Pokémon game, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet feature unique ways to evolve Pokémon. Not every Pokémon can evolve by just leveling it up. Some Pokémon need special items called stones to evolve. One of the stones that players may need to evolve their Pokémon is an Ice Stone. These exist in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and there are a couple of different ways to get them. Here is a quick guide on how to get Ice Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Ice Stone Locations
Like almost every other item, the Ice Stone has a set location in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. For players in search of one, the only guaranteed Ice Stone in the game is located in area three of the West Province. There is a Pokémon in the middle of the Dalizapa Passage. Go there and find the numerous cliffs around the Pokémon Center; there should be one with a glowing Poké Ball item. Head to that cliff and to the Poké Ball containing the Ice Stone.
If players can’t make their way to the above locations, Ice Stones could randomly be available at the auction house in Porto Marinada, a town in the West Province. Players will have to cross the Asado Desert to gain access to Porto Marinada, but once players progress through this point in the game, they can easily fly back to the area any time after. Porto Marinada is also part of the Cascarrafa Gym Test, so players will eventually be guaranteed access to the city. To check if Ice Stones are at the auction house, periodically check back to see if they are in stock.
