Trivia: This is trivia for the Moon Ball/Moon Stone and Ice Stone pages
 
==Trivia==
* In the [[Generation I]] core series games, due to a {{DL|List of glitches in Generation I|Evolutionary stone bypassing|a glitch}}, Pokémon that would normally require an Evolutionary stone to evolve can be after leveling up instead, provided that the player had sent out a specific Pokémon in the same battle it leveled up.
* No Pokémon that has evolved from exposure to an evolutionary stone is capable of evolving again.
* Despite the fact that [[Oval Stone]] is sorted along with other evolutionary stones in all core series games since its introduction, it is not an Evolutionary stone, as it can only cause evolution as a [[held item]]; it cannot be directly used on a Pokémon like the Evolutionary stones are.
**This makes Oval Stone the only Evolution item with "Stone" in its English name which is not an evolutionary stone.
* The [[Leaf Stone]] is the only evolutionary stone that cannot be sold to the {{DL|Item maniac|ore maniac}} in {{2v2|Black|White}}. This was corrected in {{2v2|Black|White|2}}.
* All Pokémon that evolve with the [[Fire Stone]] and the [[Ice Stone]] are in the {{egg3|Field}}.
* Due to the [[Game-exclusive Pokémon#Sinnoh|unavailability]] of {{p|Murkrow}} and {{p|Misdreavus}} line in {{v|Platinum}}, the [[Dusk Stone]] cannot be used on any Pokémon without trading in said game. This is the only case where an evolutionary stone is available but not usable on any available Pokémon.
* The [[Dawn Stone]] is the only stone which can only evolve a Pokémon if it is a specific [[gender]], with this requirement applying to both of the Pokémon it can evolve.
<!--* Though six Pokémon families evolve with Moon Stones, only the four introduced in [[Generation I]] can be caught in a [[Moon Ball]], which are only acquirable from [[Kurt]] in [[Azalea Town]].-->
* Through {{DL|List of glitches in Generation I|Evolutionary stone bypassing|a glitch}} in the Generation I games, Pokémon that would normally require an evolutionary stone to evolve can be evolved without it, provided that the Pokémon levels up in the battle and the player has sent out a specific Pokémon in the same battle.
* Despite the fact that [[Oval Stone]] is sorted along with other evolutionary stones in all core series games since its introduction, it is actually an [[evolution item]] because the Oval Stone does not trigger Evolution in any Pokémon when it is used on them. It must instead be held on a specific Pokémon with it levelling up during the day to take effect.
**This makes Oval Stone the only evolution-inducing item with "Stone" in its English name which is not an evolutionary stone.
* The {{wp|Sunstone|Sun Stone}} and {{wp|Moonstone (gemstone)|Moon Stone}} share their names with actual {{wp|gemstones}}.
* The [[Ice Stone]] was first revealed by a picture on the official [[Pokémon in Spain|Spanish]] Pokémon website on October 4, 2016. However, the picture was quickly removed due to the stone not having been previously announced.
* No Pokémon that has evolved from exposure to an evolutionary stone is capable of evolving again.
* The [[Sinnoh Pokédex]] is the only [[regional Pokédex]] to not include any Pokémon compatible with the [[Sun Stone]] or the [[Leaf Stone]].
** In {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}, it is also the only one to not include any Pokémon compatible with the [[Fire Stone]] or the [[Water Stone]].
* In {{game|Platinum}}, due to the [[Game-exclusive Pokémon#Sinnoh|unavailability]] of the {{p|Murkrow}} and {{p|Misdreavus}} lines, the [[Dusk Stone]] cannot be used on any Pokémon without trading. This is the only case where an Evolutionary stone is available but not usable on any available Pokémon.
