To evolve Eevee into Glaceon or Alolan Vulpix into Alolan Ninetales in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Trainers will need to acquire Ice Stones.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus fans looking to evolve their Eevee into Glaceon or ultra-rare Alolan Vulpix into Alolan Ninetales will need an evolution item known as the Ice Stone. Fortunately, Ice Stones are not very rare, as Trainers are provided several different methods to obtain one. The first and most straightforward way of getting an Ice Stone in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is by completing Request 86: “Gone Astray…in the Icelands,” a quest that guarantees an Ice Stone as a reward. The only downside is that the Request will become available quite late in the game, making this method potentially inconvenient for players.

To unlock “Gone Astray…in the Icelands” in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Trainers must progress through the main story mission, “The Slumbering Lord of the Tundra,” and complete Request 86’s prerequisite, Request 77: “Gone Astray in the Fieldlands.” Once these two quests have been fulfilled, players can accept Request 86 from Zeke in the Galaxy Hall. To complete “Gone Astray…in the Icelands,” players must travel to the Alabaster Icelands and rescue Zeke from a Level 64 Alpha Glalie. Afterward, Zeke’s sister Wanda will reward the player with an Ice Stone.

Another reliable way to get an Ice Stone is buying the evolution item for 1,000 Merit Points in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Merit Points or MP are exchanged at the Trading Post in Jubilife Village. To earn MP, Trainers must scour the lands of Hisui, searching for the Lost Satchels of NPCs and other players. Each Satchel found will reward players with 50-100 MP and often include a bonus consumable or crafting material. Once players have acquired enough MP, they can buy the Ice Stone and evolve their Pokémon.

Arceus fans may also buy an Ice Stone from Ginter of the Ginkgo Guild Shop for ₽5,000. The item will be available as a special offer which Ginter refers to as a “Snow-Patterned Rock.” Nevertheless, this store offer is spontaneous and will change once players catch 20 Pokémon.
Other RNG-based ways of getting Ice Stone include shaking ores and Space-Time Distortions in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Trembling ore nodes that spawn Geodudes or Gravelers will occasionally drop evolution items such as the Ice Stone. Space-Time Distortions can also randomly generate Ice Stones on the ground within the event’s area. Space-Time Distortions become available once players complete Mission 7: “The Frenzy of the Lord of the Woods” and obtain access to the Crimson Mirelands. Still, due to the randomness of these events and the shaking ores, Trainers are better off completing Request 86 and earning Merit Points to acquire Ice Stones.
