Main article: Star Piece (Skyridge 139)

Star Piece was introduced as a Pokémon Tool card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English e-Card Series (the Japanese e-Card Era) in the Skyridge expansion.

At any time between turns, if the Pokémon this card is attached to is Benched and has 2 or more damage counters on it, the player may place the appropriate Evolution card (if the player has the Evolution card in their deck) on top of that Pokémon. This counts as evolving that Pokémon.
