Evolved Pokemon that deevolve will keep their full stats, but you won't be able to evolve them ever again. Eviolite also won't work on such Pokemon.

Doesn't make logical sense for the game at all.

I take it this would be a purely aesthetic measure... What would happen with Eevee though? Would it revert to Normal-type, thus losing useful STABs?

Well, first off, the official term (yes, there actually is a word for this) is devolution. There's even a page about it on Bulbapedia; http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Devolution

I'd be kinda glad that GameFreak decided to implement devolution in the games, though I'd be kinda pissed if we could never evolve them again. Suppose someone has a female Glalie, and decides they want her to be a Froslass instead? I'd prefer a devolution item that devolves the Pokémon, but lets it keep the moves it had, and allows it to evolve again (provided it's able to meet the requirements- that is to say, as long as it's not something like a level 100 Wynaut that can't level up again).

Question- would your idea allow for a Light Ball to work on a devolved Pikachu?

I wouldn't mind being able to use a Zorua with the stats of a Zoroark at all. I'd personally be fine with this.

Yes, since it's item exclusive to Pikachu and not for Raichu.

What if I de-evolved a Dusclops into a Duskull? Eviolite worked on Duslops, so would it work on Duskull?

Not completely- A Pikachu with the stats of a Raichu, holding a Light Ball? With access to Focus Blast? Sounds pretty damn sweet to me.

Oh, and Magikarp sweeps. They would become a thing.
