In the anime

 
A Moon Stone in the anime

In Clefairy and the Moon Stone, a giant Moon Stone appeared deep within Mt. Moon, being worshipped by a group of Clefairy who lived there. It was soon stolen by Team Rocket, and ultimately ended up being blown up; the shards from the shattered giant Moon Stone rained down on the Clefairy and caused some of them to evolve into Clefable. In this episode, the characters speculated that the Moon Stone was how various Pokémon—Clefairy in particular—arrived in the Pokémon world. Another giant Moon Stone was later seen in the same location in A Real Cleffa-Hanger.

A flashback in Delcatty Got Your Tongue revealed that Dr. Abby decided to study to become a Pokémon Doctor shortly after winning the title of Top Coordinator. Dr. Moss took her under his wing and taught her how to treat Pokémon, and in recognition of her efforts gave her a Moon Stone, which Abby used to evolve her Skitty, nicknamed Johnny, into Delcatty.

In Mystery on a Deserted Island!, the Moon Stone was featured along with all of the other Evolution stones available as of Generation V.

A full set of Evolution stones was seen on display in a stone shop in Geosenge Town in The Cave of Trials!.

A Moon Stone appeared in a fantasy in A Dream Encounter!, where it was revealed that Lusamine had used one to evolve her Clefairy into Clefable.

A Moon Stone was first mentioned by Professor Oak in Gyarados Splashes In! as a rock with a crescent moon-shaped indentation that boosts a Pokémon's power immensely. In the next round, Team Rocket searched for one in Mt. Moon. However, it was Red who eventually found it. In The Winged Legends, Red used his Moon Stone to evolve Green's Clefairy into a Clefable in order to fight Thu-Fi-Zer during the Silph Co. showdown with Team Rocket.

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

In Guile from Mawile, Ruby's Kiki evolved into a Delcatty due to being exposed to one of Steven's Moon Stones. Another one of Steven's Moon Stones was seen in Ring Ring Goes Beldum.
