Dawn Stones can be used to evolve certain Pokémon into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, including Kirlia and Snorunt.
For some Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, using a Dawn Stone is the only way to evolve them, as simply raising their level won’t be enough.
Here’s where to find Dawn Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, from using your hard-earned money to finding a gift while you’re out and about.

Where to get Dawn Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
There are several ways to get Dawn Stones in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The first is to acquire them at auction in Puerto Marinada; However, this is based entirely on luck. It’s worth checking periodically as batches change, but if you’re desperate there’s one you can find in the wild, guaranteed.
The auction house sells a variety of evolution items, but whether you can buy them is pure luck.
If you’d rather not wait at the auction house (for which we can’t blame you at all), you can find a Dawn Stone in a Pokéball item that appears on the world map. There are two locations we can suggest: west by northwest of Medali and in the quarry north of Levincia, as shown below.
Check the ruins northwest of Medali.
Check the large pile of dirt in the quarry north of Levincia
Finally, those of you who are moving forward with completing the Pokédex will unlock a Dawn Stone once you register your 270th Pokémon! To claim this, make sure you’ve caught (not just seen) 270 different species of Pokémon and then go to your Pokédex. From here, if you tap the ‘X’ button, your app will slide up and you’ll get your hard-earned prize. If this is your first time using this feature, you will get a reward for every 10 species recorded, so check back from time to time!
