Lunatone does not evolve and does not have any pre-evolved forms.

Lunatone is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Lunatone 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Lunatone finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It has access to a couple of different strategies: one for setting up Trick Room and one for using Rock Polish to boost Speed, then using Baton Pass to pass the boosts.

While both sets boast a differing amount of offensive options, both set up options get shut down by Taunt, and anything slower than Lunatone in Trick Room can become a serious problem. Additionally, its Defenses aren't very good, leaving Lunatone to get KO'd relatively easy, especially by priority moves, which will be very problematic.
