To evolve Sinistea, you’ll need to have a special item. As Sinistea has two forms, Phony and Antique, there are two variations of the evolution item known as the Cracked Pot and Chipped Pot. To check which Sinistea form you have, you can check the bottom of Sinistea’s cup. The rare Antique form will have a stamp on the bottom, while Phony Sinistea lacks this stamp.

Behind these houses by a tree, you will find an item Pokeball that just so happens to be the Chipped Pot. For the exact location, head to the orange flag marked on the map above.
