In the anime

The Dark Stone in the anime

The Dark Stone appeared in Black—Victini and Reshiram and White—Victini and Zekrom. As the embodiment of Zekrom, the Dark Stone can glow blue from Zekrom's electricity. It first appeared under the ownership of the Hero of Ideals, as the hibernating form of the fatigued dragon Pokémon. The stone was hidden below the Sword of the Vale by the hero. In White—Victini and Zekrom, Ash awakened Zekrom from the Dark Stone to fight Damon's Reshiram; in Black—Victini and Reshiram, Damon was the one who found and awakened the Dark Stone instead.

An item called the "Golden Dark Stone" appeared in Explorers of the Hero's Ruin!, where it was hidden in the Hero's Ruin. It was sought by Cedric Juniper. Unlike the Dark Stone, this item was golden instead of black, and merely summons Zekrom instead of being its dormant form.

In the manga

The Dark Stone in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Light Stone and Dark Stone initially resided at the Desert Resort, where they were found and excavated by Clay and his mining team in Lights, Camera...Action!. After investigating the stones, he felt worried and called Lenora to come and investigate them with her expertise on ancient artifacts. Lenora took both stones to her museum, but only made the Dark Stone discovery public so that the Light Stone could be kept a secret. Later, Lenora called Drayden to help her investigate the stones, which helped them realize that they were actually Zekrom and Reshiram.

The Dark Stone was sought out by Team Plasma, who, led by the Shadow Triad, attacked the Nacrene Gym in The Battle Within in order to obtain the artifact. Although the Team Plasma Grunts raiding the building failed to find the stone, Ghetsis managed to trick Black into revealing the entrance to the secret room where the Dark Stone was hidden. In Finding Truth, the stone was delivered to N at the Dragonspiral Tower, where he awakened Zekrom from it and converted it to his side to become the Hero of Ideals.
