Pokemon Sword And Shield: Isle of Armor - How To Evolve Nidorino Into Nidoking And Nidoqueen

Nidoking and Nidoqueen are available in Pokemon Sword and Shield's first DLC pack the Isle of Armor.

Obtaining this new Pokemon is not as easy as you might think. Here's our guide to evolving Nidorino and getting Nidoking and Nidoqueen.


Using stones to evolve Pokemon was a concept introduced during the original Pokemon games, with Pokemon such as the Eevee evolution line and Nidorino! The latter is known for having two forms, male and female and using a certain stone will evolve them into their final forms. 

Depending on the gender that you have, Nidorino will evolve into either Nidoking or Nidoqueen. 

In order to evolve Nidorino, you are going to need to find a Moon Stone somewhere in the region. These are usually found within caves or department stores, but as of now, we do not know where you can find one!
