How To Get A Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon GO

There are a few ways to get Sinnoh Stones, but none are guaranteed.

That means you'll want to complete as many of these tasks as possible - especially since you can only use it once.

Field Research

Arguably the steadiest method of nabbing a stone, you'll need to complete a Field Research task each day for seven days.

At the end, you'll have a chance to earn the Sinnoh Stone, but it's not guaranteed.

Go Battle League Reward


Speaking of PvP, try competing in the Go Battle League for a chance to earn a Sinnoh Stone as a mystery item.

Battling Other Players

You might earn a Sinnoh Stone from battling another player.

Battling Team Go Rocket Leaders

You might earn a Sinnoh Stone from battling a Team Go Rocket Leader.
