The Odd Keystone is an item used in the Generation IV games to summon Spiritomb.


In the games

An Odd Keystone in the Underground

They can be found by digging in the Sinnoh Underground, and one can be found with the Dowsing Machine in Twinleaf Town. A Black Belt just west of Hearthome City hands one to the player, indicating not to ask questions about it, before describing the procedure to summon Spiritomb.

The procedure is as follows. The player must take the Odd Keystone to the broken-down tower on Route 209 and place it there. After this, the player must go underground and talk to 32 other players, and after having returned to the surface, Spiritomb will appear the next time they inspect the Hallowed Tower.

Though the technical requirement is to talk to 32 people, the player needs only to talk to one person 32 times, either leaving the Underground after each time or entering and exiting their Secret Base using the "close door and decorate" function, for it to count separately for both players.

Once placed in Hallowed Tower, the player can check the Odd Keystone every now and then to get an idea of their progress towards unlocking Spiritomb. Progress is indicated by gradually changing responses from checking the Keystone; the responses change as the player talks to more people Underground.

In Pokémon HeartGold, SoulSilver, and Platinum, Spiritomb's battle animation allows the Odd Keystone it is bound to to be revealed.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, it can only be obtained by trading it from Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum, but it has no function.

In Black and White, it can only be obtained by trading it from Pokemon Black 2 or White 2, but it has no function.

In Black 2 and White 2 it can be obtained from an antique shop in Join Avenue, there is currently no known use, however.

It can be sold for PokémonDollar.png1050, or in Generation V, to the item maniac in Icirrus City for PokémonDollar.png3000.

It is clearly visible in Spiritomb's backsprites.

In The Keystone Pops!, Ash and Dawn were training their Buizel and Aipom, when Buizel's SonicBoom destroyed the Hallowed Tower. A Spiritomb then rose from the debris and began wreaking havoc. Ash and Pikachu eventually battle the Spiritomb, and once it is hit by Pikachu's Thunderbolt, Spiritomb retreats back into the Odd Keystone, and the Hallowed Tower is rebuilt.
