How to get Thunder Stones in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

You can get Raichu even before you take on the first gym!

If you’re looking to evolve your Eevee into a Jolteon or your Pikachu into Raichu, you’re going to need an evolutionary item called a Thunder Stone. Here’s where to find one in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

Thunder Stone locations in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Thunder Stones can be obtained in a number of ways, but below are the easiest methods to take up:

  1. Get one as a Pokédex reward after capturing 30 Pokémon. When you have your Pokédex opened, press X to claim your rewards.
  2. Buy it from Delibird Presents for ₽3,000. Thunder Stones (along with Fire and Water Stones) will only be available after earning three gym badges. Delibird Presents can be found in three cities: Mesagoza, Levincia, and Cascarrafa.

You can also find one at the very top of the lighthouse in West Province (Area One). If you’re lucky, you can also find a couple lying around in East Province (Area Three). So, pick up every sparkly item you see!
