We've put together a full list of all Pokemon that evolve using a Dawn Stone in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

The Dawn Stone was introduced in Generation IV alongside the new evolutions for Kirlia and Snorunt, two Generation III Pokemon. As such, it makes sense that both would appear in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which takes place in ancient Sinnoh. Below, we've broken down both Pokemon, their evolutions, and how to go about obtaining them.

The Dawn Stone is a circular turquoise gemstone with lighter edges and a matching starburst pattern in the center. It "sparkles like a glittering eye." More information on how to obtain Dawn Stones can be found in our Evolutionary Item guide.

At the time of writing, only two Pokemon in the entire franchise evolve using a Dawn Stone. Both of these Pokemon can be found in the Hisui region:

  • Female Snorunt (Froslass)
  • Male Kirlia (Gallade)

Snorunt can be found exclusively in the Alabaster Icelands at Whiteout Valley, Bonechill Wastes, Avalanche Slopes, and/or Avalugg's Legacy. It can evolve into Glalie at level 42 or female Snorunts can evolve into Froslass using a Dawn Stone. No other requirements are necessary for evolution.

Froslass, the "Snow Land" Pokemon, is said to bear the soul of a woman who died "bearing a grudge." Some descriptions explain that it may actually be an icicle that took on the woman's unfinished business, resulting in its hollow body. According to Laventon, this Pokemon places deathly curses on men who "misbehave." Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #207.

Kirlia is the evolved form of Ralts, which becomes eligible for evolution at level 20. This Pokemon can found at the Shrouded Ruins in the Crimson Mirelands and Heart's Crag or Snowpoint Temple in the Alabaster Icelands. It evolves into Gardevoir at level 30 or male Kirlia can evolve into Gallade when exposed to a Dawn Stone. There are no other requirements for evolution.

Gallade is also known as the "Blade" Pokemon and is known for its intense commitment to chivalry. It only fights in self-defense or the defense of those facing violent injustice. The blades extending from either elbow are impressively sharp and its swordsmanship is impressive, despite being a self-taught combatant. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #104.
