The Vortex Stone

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, after completing the storyline and exploring Solar Cave, Spinda may appear in town. Spinda will give the player the Clear Wing, a legendary artifact, beginning the The Mystery of the Mirage Pokémon. The player must then talk to Xatu at the Great Canyon, who will explain what the player must do next. After defeating Entei at Fiery Field, Entei will turn the Clear Wing into the Red Wing, and send the player to Lightning Field. After defeating Raikou there, Raikou will turn the Red Wing into the Sunset Wing and send the player to Northwind Field. After defeating Suicune here, Suicune will turn the Sunset Wing into the Rainbow Wing and send the player off to Mt. Faraway. Here, due to the power of the Rainbow Wing, the player can encounter, battle and recruit Ho-Oh. None of these items show up in the team toolbox.

Also in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, after recruiting Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, Alakazam will recommend speaking to them in their Friend Area, Legendary Island. When visiting them there, they will create the Vortex Stone, which gives the player access to Silver Trench, where the player encounters Lugia.

In Pokémon Ranger

In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, the Rainbow Grail is capable of summoning Ho-Oh on the Rainbow Dais.

Silver Wing

A Silver Wing in the anime

The Silver Wing appeared in several episodes in the Whirl Islands. In The Mystery is History, Luka rescues Silver from Cassidy and Butch and then explains that she's trying to discover information about a Silver Wing she got from her great-grandfather that she kept inside a locket. When Silver's parent appeared from the ocean, her Silver Wing began to glow a violent red. When it finally began to trust them and calmed down, the glowing stopped. When everyone goes swimming with Silver and its parent, she realizes the Silver Wing is a feather from Lugia, and is relieved to have finally unlocked its secret.

On Silver Rock Isle, there is a tale that a crew caught in a storm was rescued by a wild Lugia and from that day forward, the citizens on the island have glorified the Silver Wing, putting it on various trinkets, jewelry, souvenirs, etc.

Another Silver Wing appeared in Showdown At Linoone as one of the items Tokin picked up.

Red Orb and Blue Orb

Red Orb
Blue Orb

In A Three-Team Scheme, it was revealed that Field Commander Tabitha, here referred to as Harlan, and Tactical Commander Shelly, here referred to as Isabel were in possession of the Blue Orb, here identified as the Indigo Orb, and the Red Orb, here identified as the Rose Orb, respectively.

In Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends, it was revealed that Maxie had the Blue Orb and planned to use it to control Groudon, while Archie had the Red Orb and succeeded in using it to control Kyogre. Maxie lost the Blue Orb when Pikachu became possessed by it after grabbing the orb off of Maxie's desk. It was shown that the both orbs can be absorbed into the body of and possess any person or Pokémon that touches them. This can happen instantly, as was the case with Pikachu, or over time, as was the case with Archie. A human or Pokémon being possessed by one of the orbs will have the corresponding legendary Pokémon's special red or blue markings appear on their body. While possessed, Archie was still able to control Kyogre, but Pikachu went on a wild rampage. When Kyogre was hit by Groudon's SolarBeam, the Red Orb extracted itself from Archie's body and he lost consciousness briefly. The Blue Orb also extracted itself from Pikachu. When he woke up, Archie seemed to have no memory of what happened while he was possessed. Both orbs shortly dissipated into the sky and have not been seen in the anime since. It is assumed that they were both destroyed so that bad people could never use them again.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Green stole Rainbow Wing and Silver Wing from Masked Man during her and Silver's escape. Later she put them on Yellow's hat (although this wasn't revealed until the end of third chapter), and the artifacts were used to free Gold from Ilex Forest Shrine.

The GS Ball also appeared during the last battle of the chapter: the Masked Man (whose identity was revealed some chapters earlier) crafted it using another set of Rainbow and Silver Wings, as he was planning to use it to capture Celebi.
