I picked Squirtle as my starter pokemon so I got the Blastoiseite. I spent a lot of time bringing down my style to get the venusaurite for $10,000 but I can't get the guy to sell me the Charizardite which is what I really want. Is there a certain wait period before he will sell the 2nd one? I believe i'm going on 5 days now it's been and he still only talks about the stone he already sold me. Anyone have any clue as I have yet to see this asked anywhere?

  • Wait, so you bought the Venusaurite and the option to buy the Charizardite isn't appearing?

  • Having the same issue. Is it possible that we need to wait until after the elite four? Nov 1, 2013 at 8:17
  • @MadaraUchiha That may be the case. I bought both stones in succession after E4

  • yes @Haidro the option isn't appearing. Nov 5, 2013 at 18:38
  • I can confirm your observations, it only makes sense that it doesn't become available until after beating the Elite Four.

According to this answer, you must have defeated the Elite Four in order for the Stone Emporium man to sell you the other stone.

I also picked a squirtle, but only bought my stones after I beat the Elite Four. I bought the venasaurite first, then he immediately sold me the charizardite stone afterwards.

  • And regardless, you can't get the stone you got with your starter. Nov 1, 2013 at 8:33
  • the problem with going with what it says in that link is that it tells you that you can't even get it down to 10,000 until after the Elite 4 which isn't true so I don't know what to believe Nov 5, 2013 at 18:39
