Light Stone and Dark Stone redirect here. For the Shiny Stone and Dusk Stone, whose Japanese names translate to Light Stone and Dark Stone respectively, see evolutionary stone.

The Light Stone (Japanese: ライトストーン Light Stone) and the Dark Stone (Japanese: ダークストーン Dark Stone), known collectively as the Dragon Stones, are two legendary artifacts which contain Reshiram and Zekrom, respectively.

In the games

According to legend, long before the events of Pokémon Black and White, the Twin Heroes shared a powerful dragon. However, they could not decide whether to pursue truth or ideals, so the dragon split into Reshiram and Zekrom and each followed one of the brothers. Since they were both born from the same dragon, neither could defeat the other and the brothers declared that there was no right side. However, eventually their sons continued the fight and both the dragons started to battle again, destroying the Unova region with their fire and lightning powers before disappearing. Both dragons' bodies were destroyed, and they transformed into the Light Stone and Dark Stone, respectively.

The Dark StoneB/Light StoneW resides in Dragonspiral Tower, while the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW once resided in the Relic Castle (which was excavated and put on display in the Nacrene Museum prior to the events of Black and White). The Dark StoneB/Light StoneW is revived as ZekromB/ReshiramW and called upon by N to create a world where Pokémon and people are separate. Team Plasma also tracked down that the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW should have been located in the Relic Castle and searched it, only to find that it was gone. Professor Juniper and Lenora then realized that the "ordinary stone" displayed in the museum was actually the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW, and request that the player come to Nacrene City immediately via Xtransceiver. Lenora then gives the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW to the player, who must then revive the legendary dragon within it and battle N. This revival and battle occur at N's Castle, a structure that emerged out of the ground around the Pokémon League.

Item details

In the anime

Zekrom's Dark Stone
Reshiram's Light Stone

The Dark and Light Stones appeared in the movies Black—Victini and Reshiram and White—Victini and Zekrom. They were only referred to individually in the dub, only being collectively referred to as the Dragon Stones in the original version. As embodiments of the dragons, the stones can glow according to the inhabitants' power source, with the Light Stone glowing red from Reshiram's fire and the Dark Stone glowing blue from Zekrom's electricity. They first appeared under the ownership of the Heroes of Truth and Ideals, as the hibernating forms of the fatigued dragon Pokémon. The stones were hidden below the Sword of the Vale by the heroes. In Black—Victini and Reshiram, Ash awakens Reshiram while Damon awakens Zekrom; in White—Victini and Zekrom, it is the other way around. Once both dragons were awakened, neither stone is seen again, as the stones are the dragons.
