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 Dusk Stone. The Dusk Stone in this game is used to evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow and Midreavus into Mismagius.
These Dusk Stones 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 Dusk Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Like almost every other item, the Dusk Stone has a set location in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The only guaranteed Dusk Stone players can find in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is in the snowy region of the map. In the town of Montenevera where the Ghost-type Gym leader Ryme is located, players can actually find the Dusk Stone super easily. It’s right behind the gym itself. Head outside of the gym and just travel the back area and players will see the glowing red Pokéball item awaiting them.
If players cant make their way to the above locations, Dusk Stones could randomly be available at the auction house in Porto Marinada. This is a town in the West Province that players will have to cross the Asado Desert to gain access to. But once players progress through this point in the game, they can easily fly back to the area any time after. To check if Dusk Stones are at the auction house, periodically check back to see if they are in stock.
The third way to get Dusk Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are from the little golden specs that players may see running around the region. If you press A on these, players will receive a random item. Dusk stones could theoretically show up as one of these random items but the rates are unknown and it doesn’t seem likely. But if the other methods are not available, this might be a viable last resort.
