    In order to get another of these evolving items, you will need to hunt them out in the open world of Arceus. Thunder Stones are found in one of the crystal clusters that spawn naturally; trainers just need to look for the grey-black crystals on the ground. Normally, when a Pokémon is summoned to break one of these, they can drop one of two items:

    • Black Tumblestone
    • Stardust

    However, when breaking a Sparkling Black Ore Deposit site, there are four total items that can drop from it.

    • Black Tumblestone
    • Stardust
    • Iron Chunk
    • Thunder Stones

    The most common items dropped are the Tumblestones and the Iron Chunks, but about 1% of the time, players can get either a Thunder Stone or some Stardust.

    Thunder Stones can also be found as a very rare item inside Space-Time Distortions.
