As in the main series games, the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series makes use of evolutionary items. These are often unique to the Mystery Dungeon world and are used in place of main series methods not viable for use in Mystery Dungeon. Unless otherwise noted, all of these items sell for 1 Poké.
List of items
The Link Cable takes the place of the physical link cables used to evolve Pokémon in Generations I, II, and III. It is found in Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team in Solar Cave. Pokémon that are typically evolved by trading are evolved using this item, as trading is treated differently in the Mystery Dungeon games and Pokémon themselves cannot be traded. The following Pokémon will evolve when a Link Cable is used (some Pokémon will evolve when the Link Cable is used in conjunction with another item):
- Kadabra → Alakazam
- Machoke → Machamp
- Graveler → Golem
- Haunter → Gengar
- Poliwhirl → Politoed (with King's Rock)
- Slowpoke → Slowking (with King's Rock)
- Onix → Steelix (with Metal Coat)
- Seadra → Kingdra (with Dragon Scale)
- Electabuzz → Electivire (with Electirizer)
- Magmar → Magmortar (with Magmarizer)
- Porygon → Porygon2 (with Up-Grade)
- Porygon2 → PorygonZ (with Dubious Disc)
- Dusclops → Dusknoir (with Reaper Cloth)
- Clamperl → Gorebyss (with DeepSeaScale)
- Clamperl → Huntail (with DeepSeaTooth)
The Beauty Scarf is used in place of leveling up a Pokémon whose Beauty is maxed out, as it is not possible in these games. In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, it can be found in a locked chamber in Western Cave's B59F.
The Sun Ribbon is used in place of leveling up a Pokémon at daytime. In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, it can only be found on the 20th floor of Wyvern Hill. Even when found, players still need a key to open the chamber that the Ribbon is locked inside. In Explorers of Time and Darkness, it can be found in the Golden Chamber's treasure boxes. Pokémon evolved with the Sun Ribbon need other requirements fulfilled before the evolution can take place.
- Eevee → Espeon (requires 2 Stars of IQ)
- Budew → Roselia (requires 4 Stars of IQ)
- Happiny → Chansey (with Oval Stone)
- Riolu → Lucario (requires 4 Stars of IQ)
The Lunar Ribbon is used in place of leveling up a Pokémon at nighttime. In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, it can only be found on the 20th floor of Northwind Field. Even when found, players still need a key to open the chamber that the Ribbon is locked inside. In Explorers of Time and Darkness, it remains rare, and can only be obtained on Zero Isle North, East, West and South. Pokémon evolved with the Lunar Ribbon need other requirements fulfilled before the evolution can take place.
- Eevee → Umbreon (requires 2 Stars of IQ)
- Gligar → Gliscor (with Razor Fang)
- Sneasel → Weavile (with Razor Claw)
