Pokémon Sun and Moon – Mega Stone locations, Key Stone, Mega Evolutions explained

Initially featuring in Pokmon X and Y, Sun and Moon have largely moved Mega Evolution – the practice of ‘over-evolving’ certain Pokmon into more powerful forms – to the side this time around, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone altogether. Far from it, in fact, as many Mega Stones are available in-game once the main story is completed, whilst the entirety are avaialble via Pokmon Bank if you’ve earned them in previous generations.

Here, we’ve put together a table showing you how and where to find Mega Stones, which Pokmon can Mega Evolve in Sun and Moon without transferring them from Pokmon Bank, and where you can find the Key Stone to make it all possible, too.

Pokmon Sun and Moon Mega Stones – locations and how and where to find them

1

As we alluded to above, not all Mega Evolutions and their corresponding Mega Stones are available in Pokmon Sun and Moon.

We’ve separated these into two tables below, in light of that: the first detailing how to get all of the Mega Stones that are currently available, and the second noting those that are still to come.

As you can see from the table, Beedrill and Mawile are set to receive their Mega Stones in a giveaway at some point in February – we’re still waiting to hear more on that from the Pokmon Company, however we do know that most, if not all, of the remaining Mega Stones are also planned to be distributed at some point in the future, too.

Otherwise, you can still get hold of them via trading the Pokmon and their respective Mega Stones through Pokmon Bank.

How and where to find the Key Stone in Pokmon Sun and Moon

Finally, you’ll need to get your hands on the Mega Ring and its Key Stone before you can use any Mega Stones at all – regardless of whether you imported them from Pokmon Bank or not. Below are their locations:

  • Key Stone – for defeating Dexio on Ancient Poni Path, after defeating the Elite Four.

Once the Elite Four’s been taken down, head back over to Ancient Poni Path, where you’ll be stopped out of the blue by Dexio. He battles you on the spot, with a fairly strong Psychic-based team, before awarding you both the Key Stone and Alakazite for your victory. From then on, if you have the relevant Mega Stone, you can finally Mega Evolve your Pokmon in battle.

We’ll update this page as the Mega Stones become more available, but for now we recommend making sure you’ve acquired every Z Crystal too, and get started on grinding those Battle Royals and Battle Tree for Battle Points!
