In the anime

A Fire Stone in the anime

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

A set of Fire Stones played an important role in The Stolen Stones!, when Ramona and Keegan were tasked with delivering them to a Fire-type Pokémon competition that planned to use them as prizes for the competitors. During the delivery, Team Rocket stole the stones, and Ash and his friends had 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, evolving them into a Flareon and Vaporeon, respectively.

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!.

A Fire Stone was seen in To Train, or Not to Train!, when members of the Eevee Evolution Lab tried to get an Eevee to evolve, only for it to not work.

In JN098, Honoka and Billy attempted to use a Fire Stone and a Thunder Stone, respectively, to evolve their Eevee partners. However, they accidentally dropped the stones onto the wrong Eevee, causing them to evolve into opposite forms than what they had intended. They attempted to correct the mistake with the spare stones they had, but the stones had no effect on the already-evolved Pokémon. At the end of the episode, they gave their spare stones to Chloe.

In the manga

Evolution stones in The Electric Tale of Pikachu

The Electric Tale of Pikachu

The focus of the chapter To Evolve or Not to Evolve, That Is the Question! was Evolution stones, including the Fire Stone.

Pokémon Adventures

Evolution stones in Pokémon Adventures

Yellow chapter

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.

Black & White chapter

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.

A Fire Stone in Pokémon Battle Frontier

Pokémon Battle Frontier

A Fire Stone appeared in Final Battle: Versus The Salon Maiden, where Enta received one from Rald. He used it on his Vulpix, evolving it into Ninetales.

In the TCG

HeartGold & SoulSilver Arcanine

A Fire Stone is featured in the artwork of several TCG cards from the HeartGold & SoulSilver Series: HeartGold & SoulSilver Arcanine, HeartGold & SoulSilver Ninetales, and Undaunted Flareon, as well as the Call of Legends prints of Ninetales and Flareon.


  • 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).
  • In Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, if the player tries to give their partner Eevee a Fire Stone, they will not accept it, and therefore, will not evolve. The same thing will happen if the player attempts to give them a Thunder Stone or a Water Stone.
