What Pokemon Can You Evolve With a Sun Stone?

You can evolve two Pokemon with a Sun Stone in Paldea: Sunkern and Petlil, but neither evolution is a must-have for battling. Both Pokemon are found in the far South of the region, with Petlil a bit more to the west and Sunkern a bit more to the East. Here’s a brief description of both Sun Stone evolutions:

Sunkern is literally called out in the Pokedex for being weak, and its evolution is only a marginal upgrade. Sunflora is cute but is outclassed by other Grass-type attackers – even with Chlorophyll, you aren’t fast enough to outspeed Pokemon like Flamigo with ok speed.

Lilligant

Petlil’s evolution Lilligant is definitely better than Sunflora; it’s 3x faster and has better Special Attack. It might be worth keeping on your team for Titan Battles and the Water Gym, but its Defense and Special Defense are low, and it can be taken out by the usual Grass counters.
