Devon Corporation (Japanese: デボンコーポレーション Devon Corporation) is a large company that is based in Rustboro City in Hoenn. Most of the locals just shorten the name to "Devon". It was a small company many years ago, but has grown by leaps and bounds, and even rivals Kanto's Silph Co. The Devon Corporation is headquartered in a large stone building in the northern section of town.

Devon makes many useful products, most of which are geared towards Pokémon training. The company is responsible for creating the new types of Poké Balls found in Hoenn.

The Devon Corporation also developed a process to revive Pokémon from Fossils. It is unknown if this process was developed independently from the Cinnabar Island and Sinnoh region research laboratories.

The current president of the Devon Corporation is Mr. Stone.

The amazing Pokémon Producer machine

This machine allows an extinct Pokémon to be brought back to life from DNA preserved in a Pokémon fossil. It has five capsules that are filled with an orange liquid called Creation Fluid. When a Pokémon Fossil is placed inside the fluid, the machine extracts its data, which is analyzed by a high-powered supercomputer. The result is a blueprint for the Pokémon; from this blueprint, the corporation grows a regenerated Pokémon.

In the anime, the Pokémon Producer is still a work in progress, but is fully functional in the games.

In the games

The player can bring Fossils to a scientist located on the second floor to get them restored. Engineers on the second floor are working on developing devices that allow people to talk to Pokémon, as well as one that visually reproduces the dreams of Pokémon; in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, this scientist mentions that his rival who lives far away is working on a similar project.

According to a Scientist in the Team Magma HideoutOR/Team Aqua HideoutAS, TabithaOR/ShellyAS used to work for Devon Corporation.

The Devon Corporation was previously run by Mr. Stone's grandfather, who decided to use the Infinity Energy of the ultimate weapon in order to help people and Pokémon. The Devon Parts were parts for a submarine that would allow it to be powered by Infinity Energy. The rockets launched from the Mossdeep Space Center use Infinity Energy through Devon technology, as well.

Role

The player's first encounter with Devon Corporation occurs in Petalburg Woods, where a Devon researcher claims to be looking for wild Shroomish. The researcher is then attacked by a member of Team MagmaROR or Team AquaSEAS, whom the player must battle in order to prevent the Devon GoodsRSE/Devon PartsORAS from being stolen.

After defeating Roxanne, the same researcher can be seen chasing after a Team MagmaROR or Team AquaSEAS thief who has managed to steal the Devon Goods/Devon Parts from him. After pursuing the thief into Rusturf Tunnel and defeating him and returning the Devon Goods/Devon Parts to the researcher, the player will automatically be taken to the 3F of the Devon Corporation building (which was previously inaccessible). Here, Mr. Stone, the company president, asks the player deliver the Devon Goods/Devon Parts to Captain Stern in Slateport City and a Letter for Steven in Granite Cave. In return for accepting these favors, Mr. Stone presents the player with a PokéNav, or in Generation VI a Buzz Nav enhancement for the player's PokéNav Plus. In Generation III only, after delivering the Letter, the player will also receive an Exp. Share upon speaking to Mr. Stone again. Additionally, the researcher will stand outside of Rusturf Tunnel and give the player a Repeat Ball after delivering the Devon Goods/Devon Parts.

In Pokémon Emerald, a researcher will install the Match Call feature onto the player's PokéNav when exiting the building after talking to Mr. Stone for the first time. The player will then be prompted to call Mr. Stone who explains the feature in brief detail and claims that the player seems quite happy as he is watching from a window in his 3F office.

In [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and {{{2}}} Versions |Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and {{{2}}}]], bringing the Intriguing Stone to Mr. Stone will reveal that it is really Pidgeotite, which the player will then receive.

Delta Episode

During the Delta Episode, after receiving Steven's call in Petalburg City, Steven will be waiting outside the Devon Corporation building in Rustboro City for the player, escorting the player to Mr. Stone's office when they arrive.

In his office, Mr. Stone tells the player about the history of the Devon Corporation and asks the player to retrieve a Meteorite Shard from Granite Cave. Throughout the Delta Episode, Mr. Stone mentions where Steven has most recently headed.

After listening to Zinnia's grandmother at Meteor Falls, Steven heads to the Devon Corporation building in Rustboro City. When the player arrives there, a scientist runs out the door, running away from a Team Aqua Grunt. That grunt then challenges the player, followed by a second and third grunt, all of whom run away after they are defeated. The scientist then reveals that the device to control the Link Cable was stolen by CourtneyOR/MattAS and that Steven has headed off to the Mossdeep Space Center.

Devon Corporation in Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire

The Devon Corporation serves similar purposes in Pokémon Adventures as in the games. The "Devon Goods" was actually a metal tube that allowed Captain Stern's submarine to withstand the pressure of deeper sea water. Mr. Stone was ambushed by Team Aqua while heading to Slateport from Rustboro, and the metal tube was stolen. The letter to Steven contained the then-undeciphered code required to unlock the legendary golems in case Kyogre and Groudon clashed with each other again. Sapphire was instructed to deliver this letter but only managed to do so when Kyogre and Groudon did clash, and she was saved temporarily from the burst of energy by Steven.

In the Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire manga

Devon Corporation appeared in Let's Invite Something New! Go! Go! Go!.
