What is the Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go?

The Sinnoh Stone is a special evolution item that lets you transform many of the game’s Pokemon into their Gen 4 versions.

The likes of Rhyperior, Magmortar, Electivire, Mismagus, Gliscor, PorygonZ, Honchkrow, Weavile, Roserade, Togekiss, and Dusknoir cannot be caught in the wild like regular pokémon and won’t evolve using just candies – so you need the stone to get catch’em all.

How to get the Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go

The method of how to get a Sinnoh Stone still involves completing a seven-day field research breakthrough.

But a new way to get hold of a Sinnoh Stone was shared by reddit user Arik90.
