Filling out your Pokedex wouldn't be possible without using an evolution item or two, and the Pokemon Sword and Shield Dawn Stone is just one of the ones that's important to have in your arsenal. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to find the Dawn Stone in Pokemon Sword and Shield and teach you how to use it to evolve Snorunt into Froslass and Kirlia into Gallade.

The easiest way to find the Dawn Stone is to head to the Lake of Outrage in the Wild Area, where there’s a Stonehenge-adjacent circle of monolithic rocks to find across a small body of water. You need the Rotom Bike that you pick up on Route 9 (post gym number six) to get here. Once done, cross the gap and you should find a stone under every single rock in the circle. This should yield eight stones and you’ll be pleased to know that they respawn.

You can also speak to the Digging Duo in the Bridge Field section of the Wild Area. Clad in green so they’re not hard to spot, you can give them Watts in exchange for their excavation services, which may yield the evolution stone that you’re missing.

In Pokemon Sword and Shield, you can use evolution stones to evolve your Pokemon by entering your bag menu and selecting the ‘Other Items’ tab. Once you’re hovering on the necessary stone, select “Use this item” and then select the pocket monster that could benefit from it (if you give it to a Pokemon, they’ll just hold it).

The two Pokemon that can evolve with a Dawn Stone are Snorunt (found on Route 8 or in numerous Pokemon Sword and Shield Wild Area regions), who evolves into Froslass; and Kirlia (evolves from Ralts who can be found in the Wild Area), who evolves into Gallade.
