How to Find Shiny Stones in Pokemon Sword and Shield
Location 1: You can farm Shiny Stones by catching Clefairy, Clefable, or Lunatone. These Pokemon have a 5% chance of holding the stone so you can catch them repeatedly (an average of 20 catches to gain a stone) to find it.
Location 2: To find this location, you must first unlock the Water Rotom Bike on Route 9 to be able to drive through the blocked area. In the northwest of the Wild Area is a place called the Lake of Outrage. There, you will find a circle of large rocks where many Evolution Stones are hiding—here you will discover a Shiny Stone.
Location 3: This Shiny Stone can be found on Route 8. Find the ladder beside Dr. Joanna. Climb the ladder and follow the path on the right to the Shiny Stone.
