Where to get Sun stones in Pokemon Go

To get sun stones in Pokemon Go, you will need to do a number of things, but none of them are guaranteed to give you a sunstone, as the chances for the item to drop are extremely low.

That being said, we recommend visiting pokestops and gyms and spinning at them. Along with this, if you do this for a total of seven days, you will get a bonus called the seventh-day streak that has a high chance of netting you a stone stone. We also recommend finding an area filled with pokestops to make the most out of your trip and increase your chances of obtaining a sunstone.

But, if you don't know already, you can spin at either gyms or pokestops by finding a disc icon on the right corner of your screen after selecting a location. After doing this, items should appear, and you may get the sunstone you need.
