Where To Get the Sun Stone in Pokémon FRLG

The Sun Stone Location in Ruin Valley (FireRed)

There is only one Sun Stone in Pokémon FRLG, and it’s located in Ruin Valley. This is an area on Six Island within the Sevii Islands. So you will need the Rainbow Pass from Celio to access this area.

You’ll also need a Pokémon that can use Strength, because the Sun Stone is hidden behind a small boulder puzzle.

There is no other way to acquire other Sun Stones in the game (aside from trading).

Prerequisites

Before you can visit Six Island, you must first obtain the Rainbow Pass from Celio.

To obtain the Rainbow Pass, these are the specific requirements:

  1. You must have beaten the Elite 4 and Champion
  2. You must have gotten the National Pokedex from Prof. Oak.
  3. You must have completed Celio’s quest to find the Ruby and gave it to him.

After completing these, Celio will upgrade your Tri-Pass to a Rainbow Pass. Six Island should now be available as an option by ferry.

First be sure to bring a Pokémon that knows HM04 Strength. There is also a trainer battle along the way, so heal and be ready for that too.

Step 1: Go to Vermilion City and ride the Seagallop ferry to Six Island.
