Effect

In the overworld

A Pokémon holding an Everstone cannot evolve by level-up or trade. (It does not prevent a Pokémon evolving via Evolution stone.)

From Generation IV onward, the Everstone fails to prevent Kadabra from evolving. If either Karrablast or Shelmet holds an Everstone when traded for the other, neither can evolve.

Reason: Does the Everstone work if held by a female Pokémon bred with Ditto in E/DPPt? What happens if both parents hold an Everstone in HGSS/BW and in B2W2 onward?.

In Pokémon Emerald and Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, if held by a female Pokémon or Ditto in Pokémon Day Care, bred Pokémon have a 50% chance of having the same Nature as that parent. In Generation IV, this does not work if the parents come from games in different languages (due to the Masuda method).

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and Pokémon Black and White, if held by either parent in Pokémon Day Care, bred Pokémon have a 50% chance of having the same Nature as the parent holding the Everstone. In Generation IV, this does not work if the parents come from games in different languages (due to the Masuda method).

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and Generation VI onward, if held by either parent in Pokémon Day Care or the Pokémon Nursery, bred Pokémon are guaranteed to have the same Nature as the parent holding the Everstone.

Regional variants

If held by a Pokémon that has regional variants in the Pokémon Nursery, bred Pokémon will be the same regional variant as the parent regardless of the region they are bred in. (Normally, hatched Pokémon are always in the form corresponding to the region in which they were bred.)
