How to Get Sun Stone in Pokemon GO

To get a Sun Stone in Pokemon GO, there are several things you can do. The first one is to spin every Gym and PokeStop you come across, of course. Try and find an area that has as many Stops as possible, and spin them all. The likelihood of receiving a Sun Stone this way is not great, but it is something. More importantly, when you complete your seven-day streak of spinning at least one PokeStop every day, you might receive a Sun Stone as a reward. Your odds will be higher, too. Lastly, sometimes event-exclusive Field Research tasks can reward you with this Evolution item.
