When you set out for an expedition in Pokemon Quest, you can find many resources and items, among them Power Stones. The Stones increase the HP or damage. Each stone is available in four levels; the higher the level, the better the effects. Power Stones exist in four varieties: normal, bronze, silver and gold.

How to unlock upgrade slots?
After each expedition in Pokemon Quest, you not only get new items and resources, but you also improve your pokemon. The more enemies have the given pokemon taken down, the more developed its upgrade slots will be. If you keep sending the pokemon on expeditions, its slots will keep developing, allowing you to use increasingly powerful upgrades.
Upgrade slots are also unlocked along with the progress - keep training your pokemon to make sure it gets as much XP as possible.
How to distribute upgrades?
The upgrades you've obtained can be distributed among your pokemon. We've prepared a list of things that you should be aware of when upgrading pokemon.
- Pay attention to the basic amount of life - some pokemon have a frighteningly low HP, and it is best to give them as many Stones as possible to improve HP regeneration or shorten respawn time;
- Also pay attention to the basic value of the attack - if the pokemon has a large number of HP and terribly weak attacks, give it the strongest stones for critical damage;
- Always take upgrades away from non-team characters - if you're changing the team, take upgrades from all old members - they won't be of any use to the pokemon staying in the base, but they can improve your new line-up;
- Check new upgrades after every expedition - if you don't keep up with the changes, you may find that your heroes have much weaker improvements than you could have imagined. Therefore, it is worth to constantly control new improvements and recycle the old ones.
If you have a lot of useless upgrades in your equipment, you can recycle them. Just select that option and then the items that you want to recycle. This process will yield some resources useful for crafting new pokemon, for example.
