There are six different ways to obtain Leaf Stones in OR/AS. The easiest Leaf Stone you can get is on Route 119. You can find it as an overworld item at the end of the path near the middle-level river (you’ll need a Pokémon that knows Surf to get it).
If you don’t have access to Route 119 yet, another reliable way to acquire a Leaf Stone is to complete either of the following Secret Super Training stages:
- “The Leaf Stone Cup Begins!”
- “The Battle for the Best!”
Should you require additional Leaf Stones, there are still more ways to obtain them, although these other methods might take a bit longer.
Method 1 – Route 119 (One-time Only)
Route 119 contains a single Leaf Stone that you can pick up. To find the Leaf Stone, you’ll need to surf down the river. Make sure you have a Pokémon that knows HM03 Surf in your party before setting out.
If you’re all set, fly to Route 119 to get started.
Step 1: Start by taking the southern path and going down the stairs.
Step 2: Descend the next set of stairs and keep following the southern path.
Step 3: When you reach the end of the path, use HM03 Surf on the body of water.
Step 4: Surf eastward, following the river downstream until you reach the end of the path.
Step 5: Near the end of the path you’ll see some rocks.
Land on the patch of land to your right, and there you’ll find the Leaf Stone in the corner on the ground.
Method 2 – Secret Super Training (The Leaf Stone Cup Begins! / The Battle for the Best!)
Secret Super Training is a series of mini-games designed for fully-trained Pokémon to obtain rare items.
If you complete the stage called “The Leaf Stone Cup Begins!” or “The Battle for the Best!” within the target time, you have the chance to win the following prizes:
|The Leaf Stone Cup Begins!||
|The Battle for the Best!||
Tip: Both stages can reward you with a Leaf Stone, but “The Leaf Stone Cup Begins!” is more likely to give you one since its prize pool is smaller.
Because Super Training becomes available once Wally captures his Ralts, this method does provide the earliest opportunity to obtain a Leaf Stone. However it should be noted that fully training a Pokémon’s EVs (Effort Values) may require a bit of time and effort.
If you already have a fully-trained Pokémon and are looking for a Leaf Stone, here’s how to unlock the stage which presents it as a reward:
Step 1: Navigate to your PlayNav in the bottom screen. Then find and click the Super Training screen.
Step 2: On the Super Training screen, a radar chart displays your Pokémon’s EV distribution.
If you see that the meter on the right is filled and a muscle icon appears in the top-left of your screen, it means your Pokémon’s total EVs are fully maxed out at 510.
Step 3: From here, press the green button on the bottom left corner of the screen. You’ll see 12 new unlockable Secret Super Training stages, exclusively for fully-trained Pokémon.
If you want a chance to obtain a Leaf Stone, you’ll have to unlock either of the stages: “The Leaf Stone Cup Begins!” or “The Battle for the Best!”.
Step 4: Once you complete the stage within the target time, you have a good chance to obtain a Leaf Stone.
Method 3 – Trade with the Treasure Hunter on Route 124
The Treasure Hunter is an NPC who trades shards for various Evolution Stones, including the Leaf Stone. He can be found on an island house on Route 124 between Lilycove City and Mossdeep City.
You can trade one Green Shard for one Leaf Stone.
Here’s the full list of shards that can be traded for Evolution Stones:
|Red Shard||Fire Stone|
|Yellow Shard||Thunder Stone|
|Blue Shard||Water Stone|
|Green Shard||Leaf Stone|
Tip: If you’re looking for Green Shards, try searching in Mirage Mountains. Each Mirage Mountain contains a hidden item, and you might find a Green Shard there.
If you don’t know where the Treasure Hunter’s house is, simply fly back to Route 124 and you’ll land on the island where his house is on.
Method 4 – Inverse Battle Stop
The Inverse Battle Stop is a unique battle facility operated by a trainer named Inver, where Inverse Battles take place. Inverse battles are a special type of Pokémon battle in which type matchups are reversed, making moves that are usually super effective, not very effective, and vice versa.
Should you manage to defeat Inver, he’ll reward you with an item based on your score.
Each super-effective move you land earns you a point, while each super-effective move he lands against you causes a one-point deduction.
Scoring between 7 to 9 points gives you a 10% chance of obtaining a Leaf Stone. Each prize in this pool has an equal probability (10%) of being awarded. The prize pool for this score range includes the following:
- Fire Stone
- Leaf Stone
- Water Stone
- Thunder Stone
- Sun Stone
- Moon Stone
- Dawn Stone
- Dusk Stone
- Shiny Stone
If you don’t know where the Inverse Battle Stop is, here’s how to get there:
Step 1: Begin at the Pokémon Center in Mauville City. Then head back inside the city’s interior through the entrance on the right.
Step 2: Once inside the city, proceed slightly north and you’ll find the Inverse Battle Stop immediately on your left.
Step 3: After entering the facility, talk to Inver to start the challenge. Remember to track your points – accumulate a score of 7-9 to have a chance of obtaining a Leaf Stone.
Method 5 – Rematch with Aroma Lady Rose
The AreaNav is a feature of the PokéNav Plus, which displays the map of the Hoenn Region.
Upon selecting the map, you will see various tabs including the Trainer’s Eye tab. This tab allows you to locate specific trainers across Hoenn who are ready for a rematch, indicated by a “Battle Ready” sign next to their profile.
Defeating rematchable trainers gives you a small chance of obtaining an item as a reward. When you defeat Aroma Lady Rose, she has a 5% chance of rewarding you with a Leaf Stone.
Aroma Lady Rose can be found on Route 118. You can find her on the west side of the route near Mauville City.
But before going after her, be sure to check the Trainer’s Eye tab at Route 118 to see if she’s available for a rematch. If she is, fly back to Mauville City instead of directly flying back to Route 118 to reach Aroma Lady Rose faster:
Step 1: Start by heading back inside the city’s interior through the entrance on the right.
Step 2: Once you’re back inside the city, continue east until you reach the city’s exit to Route 118.
Step 3: When you reach Route 118, keep going east and you’ll soon find Aroma Lady Rose. Talk to her to initiate the rematch.
Method 6 – Secret Pal Skill: Pick Up Stones
You also have a chance to obtain a Leaf Stone by using the “Pick Up Stones” Secret Pal skill, which is one of the features of Super-Secret Bases.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Super-Secret Bases are an upgraded version of the Secret Base feature from the original games. After making your own Secret Base using TM94 Secret Power, you can customize and share your base with other players.
You can also visit other Secret Bases to interact with other players, challenge them to battles, and if you want, make them one of your Secret Pals. Each Secret Pal can use a special skill once a day; a pal can learn up to four of the ten possible skills:
