In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga
Evolutionary stones in The Electric Tale of Pikachu
The focus of the chapter
was evolutionary stones. To Evolve or Not to Evolve, That Is the Question! Misty hoped to buy a Water Stone for her Poliwhirl in Stone Town, a town on Dream Island where all the evolutionary stones in the Pokémon world come from. However, she couldn't afford one, remarking that an inexpensive one might make the evolution go bad.
Misty was later given a Water Stone by
Mikey, who was being pressured to join the " Knights of the E Stone", a club which requires members to own a Pokémon evolved by an evolutionary stone.
In the Pokémon Adventures manga
A Water Stone in Pokémon Adventures
, Buzz Off, Electabuzz! Red's Poliwhirl was able to evolve into a Poliwrath with the help of a Water Stone when they were thrown into the water in Vermilion Harbor, although the cause of his evolution wasn't revealed until the .
, the The Kindest Tentacruel Pokémon Fan Club Chairman told Yellow about a legend of an underwater dome at the bottom of Vermilion Harbor, housing a set of evolutionary stones which, unlike normal stones, did not disappear after making a Pokémon evolve, allowing them to be used repeatedly. The cause of Red's Poliwhirl's evolution had been one of these said stones, proving the legend to be true. Yellow was later led to the dome by a wild Tentacruel, finding a Leaf Stone in it, but the Fire, Thunder, and Water Stones were missing. Later, it was revealed that Giovanni had given them to Red so he could freely evolve and devolve his Eevee.
, Mowing Down Ludicolo Shelly used a Water Stone to evolve her Lombre into a Ludicolo while battling against Sapphire's Pokémon.
, Triple Threat Cilan, Chili, and Cress used a Leaf Stone, Fire Stone, and Water Stone to evolve their Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour into Simisage, Simisear, and Simipour, respectively, during their battle against the Shadow Triad.
Through 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. In the case of the Water Stone, this Pokémon is Onix. In other languages
