In the anime

A Fire Stone in the anime

The Fire Stone made its anime debut in The Battling Eevee Brothers as part of a collection held by the Eevee brothers. Two of the Eevee brothers offered a Fire Stone and Thunder Stone to Brock and Ash to evolve their respective Vulpix and Pikachu, though both refused.

A set of Fire Stones played an important role in The Stolen Stones!, where Ramona and Keegan had been tasked with delivering them to be used as prizes for the competitors of a Fire-type Pokémon competition. During the delivery, Team Rocket stole the stones, requiring Ash and his friends to help retrieve them.

In Last Call — First Round!, Ursula used a Fire Stone and a Water Stone during the Performance Stage of the Sinnoh Grand Festival to evolve her two Eevee, making them a Flareon and Vaporeon.

Mystery on a Deserted Island! featured the Fire Stone along with all of the other Evolution stones available as of Generation V.

A full set of Evolution stones was seen on display in a stone shop in Geosenge Town in The Cave of Trials!.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Fire Stone in Pokémon Adventures

In The Kindest Tentacruel, the Pokémon Fan Club Chairman told Yellow about a legend of an underwater dome at the bottom of Vermilion Harbor, housing a set of Evolution stones which, unlike normal stones, did not disappear after making a Pokémon evolve, allowing them to be used repeatedly. The cause of Red's Poliwhirl's evolution had been one of these said stones, proving the legend to be true. Yellow was later led to the dome by a wild Tentacruel, finding a Leaf Stone in it, but the Fire, Thunder, and Water Stones were missing. Later, it was revealed that Giovanni had given them to Red so he could freely evolve and devolve his Eevee.

In Triple Threat, Cilan, Chili, and Cress used a Leaf Stone, Fire Stone, and Water Stone to evolve their Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour into Simisage, Simisear, and Simipour, respectively, during their battle against the Shadow Triad.

In the Pokémon Battle Frontier manga

In the TCG

HeartGold & SoulSilver Arcanine

A Fire Stone is featured in the artwork of the HeartGold & SoulSilver Arcanine card.


  • All Pokémon that evolve with the Fire Stone are in the Field Egg Group.
  • Through a glitch in the Generation I games, Pokémon that would normally require an Evolution stone to evolve can be evolved without it, provided that the Pokémon levels up in the battle and the player has sent out a specific Pokémon in the same battle. In the case of the Fire Stone, this Pokémon is Missingno. (index number 32).
