Water stone is a type of Evolution Stone introduced in Pokémon Generation I. You can use it to evolve certain species of Pokémon.
You can get a Pokémon Water Stone Black 2 from Hidden Grottoes, Dust Clouds, Route 19, Battle Subway, and Clay Tunnel. To find some of these, you need a Dowsing Machine. You can also find Water Stones in Dream Radar after catching Thundurus.
Water stone causes Shellder to evolve into Cloyster, Staryu to evolve into Starmie, Eevee to evolve into Vaporeon, and Lombre to evolve into Ludicolo. This generation also introduced Panpour. Use water stone on this Pokémon to evolve it into Simipour.

Hidden Grottoes can also generate Water Stones. You can find these on Routes 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 13, 18, 22, 23. Also, there are Hidden Grottos in Floccesy Ranch, Giant Chasm, Abundant Shrine, Lostlorn Forest, and Pinwheel Forest.
When Can You Get A Water Stone In Black 2?
You have a 0.25% chance of finding a Water Stone in Hidden Grottoes in Routes 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9. These are early game routes, so you don't have to progress too far in the story to get one.
However, you have to be lucky and patient. The content of the Hidden Grotto is random. You have to get it to see what it is.
If it is not a Water Stone, you need to make at least 256 steps to let the Hidden Grotto regenerate its content. There's also no way of farming Water Stones with this method, as Hidden Grottoes tend to generate content not similar to the last one they had.
Where Can I Find A Water Stone In Black?
Water Stones are rarer in Pokémon Black than in Pokémon Black 2. Farmable ones are only in Dust Clouds and Black City, while you can get one in Driftveil City and Castelia City.
There are steps to getting a Water Stone in Castelia City, however. If you did it wrong, you would get either a Leaf Stone or a Fire Stone instead. Here is how to do it properly.
Step 1: Go to Castelia City
Of course, the first step is to get to Castelia City. You can get here by Flying using your Pokémon. Or, you can enter the city through the two entry points: Route 4 and Skyarrow Bridge
Step 2: Go to Thumb Pier
Next, go to Thumb Pier. It is the first pier or the one directly south of the Bridge Gate.
Step 3: Talk to the scientist.
There is one scientist on Thumb Pier; talk to him. He will ask you which one of the “elemental monkeys” you want to evolve. Choose Panpour.
Step 4: Confirm
The scientist will ask you if it is a Water Stone that you need. Select Yes, and he will give you one.
