The difference between Phony Sinistea and Antique Sinistea is small—it can easily go unnoticed even to the trained eye. Antique Form Sinistea brandishes a visible light-blue seal of authenticity on the bottom of its cup, inside the rim. Phony Form Sinistea does not have this unique marking.
Evolving Sinistea to Polteageist is quite simple, but you must have the correct item to trigger its evolution. To evolve Phony Form Sinistea you need to use the Cracked Pot on the Pokémon. To evolve Antique Form Sinistea, you need to use the Chipped Pot on the Pokémon.

Finding Sinistea can be challenging. Currently, the only place it lives in the wild is Glimwood Tangle, the forest located to the north of the town Stow-on-Side. With some luck and patience you can find Sinistea in the tall grass during a random encounter.
In addition, there’s a semi-rare chance of encountering Sinistea during a Max Raid Battle in the Wild Area.
