List of out-of-battle effect items

In the anime

A Soothe Bell first appeared in Showdown At Linoone as one of the items Tokin had picked up.

A pair of Soothe Bells appeared in Tag! We're It...! as the prize promised for the winners of the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition, one for each member of the winning pair of Trainers. In Smells Like Team Spirit!, the competition ended in Ash and Paul's victory, earning each of them one of the Soothe Bells. However, Paul did not want his, so he gave it to Ash instead. Ash's Soothe Bells briefly reappeared at the start of In The Shadow of Zekrom!, where they were seen on Ash's desk, along with various other gifts and prizes he had received in the Sinnoh region.

In Stopped in the Name of Love!, Dawn received an Everstone from Nurse Joy, giving it to her Piplup to prevent him from evolving until he changes his mind.

Virgil used a Soothe Bell in Lost at the League! to calm down a Garbodor and a group of Trubbish.

In No Stone Unturned!, Ash's Rowlet found an Everstone, which it started keeping in its stomach and learned to use Seed Bomb with.


In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Suffering Psyduck, one of Mr. Backlot's Maids gave Platinum a Soothe Bell as thanks for visiting his mansion.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

In (Violent) Earthquake! Cyrus's Consuming Ambition!!, it was revealed that Mitsumi had secretly attached an Everstone to Hareta's Piplup before he started his journey, because she had thought Hareta would learn faster with weaker Pokémon. After Mitsumi removed the Everstone, Piplup immediately evolved into Prinplup, and then into Empoleon.
