Just like in every Pokémon game, the pocket monsters in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee doesn’t only evolve by grinding and leveling them up. Some Pokémon require stones in order for them to evolve. In this guide, we’ll talk about the Moonstone and how to obtain them in Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee.
In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee, as well as other Pokémon games, the Moonstone is used to evolve the following Pokémon:
- Clefairy into Clefable
- Jigglypuff into Wigglytuff
- Nidorina into Nidoqueen
- Nidorino into Nidoking
You can also sell Moonstones for 1,500 Pokémon Dollars
These special stones can be found in Mt. Moon (because of course Moonstones are found in Mt. Moon) which can be found in between Pewter City and Cerulean City. Fortunately, Moonstones in Mt. Moon regenerates each real-world day.
The Hunt for Moonstones
In order to obtain Moonstones, you must do the following:
- Mt. Moon can only be accessed after defeating Brock and getting the badge from his Pokémon Gym.
- After that or if you’ve already done that, Go east from Pewter City, go through Route 3, then Route 4, and there you’ll find the entrance to Mt. Moon. The entrance is right beside a Pokémon Center.
- Upon entering Mt. Moon, look out for craters on the floor. If you’re by a crater and your Pikachu or Eevee’s tail swings back and forth, press the A button by the crater to interact and find an item. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a Moonstone!
Unfortunately, Moonstones are not guaranteed for each crater as only two Moonstones can be obtained from Mt. Moon during each real-world day. It is possible that you’ll pick up different items. It takes a bit of patience to find these interactable craters and Moonstones from a cave that has multiple floors. Fortunately, however, as mentioned above, the Moonstones replenish and the craters randomly change each real-world day. Again, obtaining Moonstone needs a bit of patience. But, they are a must-have if you really want to catch them all!
