Ever since the reveal of Alolan Vulpix and Ninetales, fans have wondered how the former will evolve into the latter, seeing as regular Vulpix require Fire Stones to evolve. Well, that mystery may have been resolved at last, thanks to this morning’s new round of Pokémon Sun and Moon information. While it didn’t appear in the English versions, Spain’s Pokémon website released a new image of several Stone items, including one labelled “Piedra Hielo”—Spanish for “Ice Stone.”
While it’s not yet confirmed that this new stone will enable Ice Type evolutions, it certainly seems likely. If so, Alolan Vulpix is probably not the only recipient for its effects; the stone could also be used for other Alolan forms, new Pokémon found in this region, and even perhaps a new way for Eevee to evolve into Glaceon! Hopefully we’ll get more information on this new item soon, perhaps even in ten days when the next round of Pokémon news hits.
What do you think of this new Ice Stone? What sort of uses do you think it could have? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
