A Moon Stone appeared in a fantasy in ''[[SM044|A Dream Encounter!]]'', where it was revealed that {{an|Lusamine}} had used one to evolve her Clefairy into a {{TP|Lusamine|Clefable}}.
 
An [[Ice Stone]] was first seen in ''[[SM080|Not Caving Under Pressure!]]'', where [[Sophocles's Charjabug]] found one while helping to fix up a cave inhabited by a group of {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Sandshrew}}, revealing that the cave was in fact an Ice Stone mine where Sandshrew gather to evolve. The leader of the Sandshrew pack, a {{pkmn2|giant}} Sandshrew, touched the stone and proceeded to evolve into an Alolan {{p|Sandslash}}. Later, after exiting the cave, Charjabug was revealed to have found another Ice Stone, which {{an|Sophocles}} gave to {{an|Lillie}}. She asked [[Snowy]] if it wanted to use the stone to evolve, but Snowy didn't feel ready for it yet, so Lillie decided to hold on to the stone in case Snowy ever changed its mind.
 
Evolutionary stones do not seem to be required for evolution in the anime as they are in the games. {{DL|List of Pokémon temporarily owned by the Team Rocket trio|Victreebel|James's second Weepinbell}} evolved without a Leaf Stone in ''[[EP261|Here's Lookin' at You, Elekid]]''. In addition, Pokémon that evolve via proximity of evolutionary stones apparently seem to control their evolutionary urges and physically touch the stone without evolving, as evidenced by Pikachu whacking away the Thunder Stone when refusing to evolve the first time, as well as a Clefairy holding onto a Moon Stone for prolonged periods of time before delivering it to the larger Moon Stone without evolving.
