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 a Dawn 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 Dawn Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Dawn Stone Locations
Like almost every other item, Dawn Stones have set locations in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. There are a couple of locations players can find Dawn Stones in the game. The first one is in area three of the East Province. Towards the bottom left of the area there should be a dirt pile that has a ton of items all around it; a Dawn Stone will be among them. Another one is located in area three of the West Province. Off to the side of the wild are a couple of walls, a Dawn Stone can be found behind one.
If players can’t make their way to the above locations, Dawn 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 Dawn Stones are at the auction house, periodically check back to see if they are in stock.
