When it comes to Pokémon Go special items, the easiest and most efficient way to acquire these new items is through playing the game the same old way. An analyst has advised to keep spinning those PokéStops because that’s where the berries and other items drop.
The five evolution items to find include Metal Coat (Scyther, Onix), King’s Rock (Poliwhirl, Slowpoke), Sun Stone (Gloom, Sunkern), Dragon Scale (Seadra) and Upgrade (Porygon). You need a mix of them to do the trick. Kotaku says that two new berries have much less profound effects on the game, but they are worth seeking out.
