Pokemon Go evolution items are essential if you want to complete the Pokedex and collect some of the strongest Pokemon in the game. There are many different items and methods to evolve Pokemon in Pokemon Go, this is where this guide comes in handy. We have all the Pokemon Go evolution items listed here for you to learn and review exactly what they do so you know how to collect them.
How to find evolution items in Pokemon Go?
Now is the time to improve your game and start playing Pokemon Go every day. Yes, stand up soldier. If you haven’t yet completed your field research stamp, this small step will give you a chance to earn the Pokemon Go evolution item every seven days from your seven-day Pokestop series and increase your odds of finding a Sinnoh Stone.
Regular special items like Up-Grades and King’s Rocks can sometimes even drop from regular Poke Stops, but making sure you spin a Poke Stop every day and working on your streak will ensure you get at least one each week. Keep in mind that it’s impossible to predict what you’ll get, so you may need to see a few Metal Coats before you find the Sun Stone you want.
There are two main ways to find the Sinnoh Stone introduced with Gen 4. The first is to complete your seven-day research assignments. This essentially means earning a stamp every day until you win a legendary Pokemon match. If you’re lucky you’ll also get a Sinnoh Stone, but it’s not guaranteed. The second way to find it is to participate in trainer battles via PvP in the Battle section. Sinnoh Stones have been known to fall for both winners and losers.

You can only use the Dragon Scale item on a certain Pokemon, but you need to take a trip to the seaside or the nearest river. Combine Dragon Scale with 100 Horsea Candy to transform Seadra into Kingdra.
How to use King’s Rock in Pokemon Go
Now multiple options come into play here. King’s Rock can be used in two different ways, which means you may already have the candies you need for at least one Pokemon evolution.
Kings’ Rock can not only transform Poliwhirl into frog-like Politoed, but also transform Slowpoke into Slow King. As always, you’ll need a serious amount of Candy for both Pokemon. Poliwhirl transforms into Politoed with King’s Rock and 100 Poliwag candies. Slowpoke transforms into Slow King with King’s Rock and 50 Slowpoke candies
How to use Metal Coat in Pokemon Go?
Metal Coat can also be used on two different Pokemon, and as you’d expect, they both turn into Steel type. If you upgrade Scyther, you can get the fast Scizor, while the rock snake Onix will transform into Steelix.
Scyther transforms into Scizor with a Metal Coat and 50 Scyther candies. Onix transforms into Steelix with a Metal Coat and 50 Onix candies

How to use Magnetic Lure in Pokemon Go?
The Magnetic Lure is one of three bait types in the game and works like a regular bait with some minor changes. For 30 minutes, extra Pokemon will be attracted to the lure, but a Magnetic Lure will only attract electric, steel, and rock-type pocket monsters, although a regular bait can attract any type of Pokemon.
It’s also an evolution item! If you are near a Poke Stop with Magnetic Lure applied, you can convert Magneton and Nosepass into Magnezone and Probopass respectively; if you have enough sugar of course.
