The Eviolite (Japanese: しんかのきせき Evolution Stone) is a type of held item introduced in Generation V. It boosts the Defense and Special Defense of a Pokémon that holds it if the holder is not fully evolved.

In the core series games

If held by a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, raises its Defense and Special Defense by 50%.

The Eviolite only affects Pokémon if their form and species can evolve. If only the regional form of a species can evolve, only the regional form is affected by the Eviolite. Likewise, the Eviolite does not affect Cosplay Pikachu, Pikachu in a cap, or Eternal Flower Floette. It also does not affect Pikachu, Meowth, or Eevee if they have the Gigantamax Factor, due to not being able to evolve. Meltan is not affected by the Eviolite, because it cannot evolve in the core series games.

However, the Eviolite does affect Combee and Salandit regardless of gender. If held by a transformed Pokémon, the boost is based on its original species, not the species it is transformed into.

Main article: Eviolite (Noble Victories 91)

Eviolite was introduced as a Pokémon Tool card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Black & White Series (the Japanese BW Era) in the Noble Victories expansion. When this Trainer card is attached to a Basic Pokémon, any damage done to this Pokémon by attacks is reduced by 20, after applying Weakness and Resistance.


  • Eviolite's Japanese name contains a pun; しんかのきせき Shinka no Kiseki can also be taken to mean "Miracle of Evolution".
