Pokemon Sun & Moon Guide: Where to find evolution items like the fire stone, thunder stone, ice stone and others

A major part of any Pokemon game is Evolution. Some Pokemon simply evolve via leveling them up, but some require different criteria.

One of the more common means of Pokemon evolution is by exposing them to or giving them a certain item. That item will, under certain circumstances, make that Pokemon evolve. For some Pokemon being shown the item is enough. Others have to fight holding it, or be traded while holding it.

All important is where to find those stones and items - plus what Pokemon they have an effect on. We've got that covered. Here's all the details so far, though keep in mind this page is a work in progress.
