Effect

In battle

If held by a Houndoom, allows it to Mega Evolve into Mega Houndoom if its Trainer has a Key Stone. Each Trainer can only Mega Evolve one Pokémon per battle.

Unaffected by item negating effects (such as Embargo and Klutz). Item manipulating effects (such as Trick and Fling) cannot give Houndoom a Houndoominite or remove a Houndoominite from Houndoom.

Outside of battle

If held by a Houndoom, allows it to Mega Evolve into Mega Houndoom when it performs a Spectacular Talent during a Pokémon Contest Spectacular while its Trainer has a Key Stone. Houndoom will remain a Mega Houndoom until the Talent Round ends.
