Where to find Moon Stone in Pokemon: Let's Go

The ever-elusive Moon Stone may be relatively hard to find in Pokemon: Let's Go, but we know just where to begin the search.


How do you get a Moon Stone in Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee? The answer to this simple question seems to be eluding players. Pocket monsters like Jigglypuff need a Moon Stone in order to evolve, and tracking one down isn't exactly the same procedure that trainers might remember from the days of Pokemon Yellow. Fortunately, we're here to help.

Where to find Moon Stone

Moon Stone in Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee is generally found at Mt. Moon. Surprising, right? However, it primarily appears as a random drop on the stretch between Pewter City and Curelean City. Actually getting to Mt. Moon requires that players travel out from Cerulean City, but this shouldn't be too big of a hurdle, since the area is located toward the beginning stages of the game's main story.

Once arrived at Mt. Moon, players will want to head inside and start searching around. Eventually they'll stumble upon various Poke Balls, and within these Poke Balls will be a random assortment of items. Finding a Moon Stone is really just luck of the draw; there's no guaranteed drop location Moon Stones in the game. However, given enough time and patience, the hero should eventually open up a Poke Ball that contains a Moon Stone.

These chances only continue as players progress further into Mt. Moon. Not only do they stand a higher chance of finding a Moon Stone, they'll also find that they find more Poke Balls in general. Moon Stones aside, this serves as a great way to stock up on other items. And, once the search has run its course, players can return at later times (once per day, most likely) in order to begin the search again.

With all that said, there is one location where Pokemon: Let's Go players might be able to find a Moon Stone in a pinch: Saffron City. Search around the upper story of the Copycat Girl's house in town, looking for the white cupboard. Therein, the trainer stands a strong chance of finding an errant Moon Stone. Just try not to make eye contact on your way out, lest the same of home burglary burn you right to your core.

With the Moon Stone tucked safely away in the inventory, trainers should have no trouble evolving all those needy little pocket monsters. Keep on top of other great hints and tips for Game Freak's latest Nintendo Switch release by heading over to Shacknews' Pokemon: Let's Go home page.
