I've heard that some have changed, including some Pokemon evolving through stones instead of level-up. this may be wrong, but what are all the evolution methods in SwSh that are different from previous games (obviously don't include new Pokemon and regional variants)

Thank You!

Best answer

Other than new Pokemon and Regional variants;

  • Leafeon can now evolve with the Leaf Stone instead of leveling up near a mossy rock
  • Glaceon can now evolve with the Ice Stone instead of leveling up near a icy rock
  • Charjabug can now evolve with the Thunder Stone instead of leveling up in a magnetic field
  • Sylveon can now evolve using friendship (combined with level up and a Fairy-type move) instead of affection

K thanks.
I'm very sorry for bumping, but bulbapeadia says sylveon now evolves via high friendship instead of affection.
I updated the answer.
