you can. it's called everstone.


Everstone prevents you from evolving. It doesn't reverse the process.

Isn't there something called de-evolution beam as either an attack or an ability in the Trading Card Game? I swear I've seen it somewhere...

Unfortunately evolution doesn't work that way and Digimon can only do that because they're made of data.


Porygon line and pokemon can be stored in pc's.


In that form they are energy, not data.


I always wondered how the hell they could do that... Wouldn't it be the same thing?


You put the pokeball in a tube that leads to some large storage and scans the Mons as they go through, so you can see who's in storage. They don't magically transform into some type of data.. I think.

Devolution is possible, though only in the TCG and the manga (and even then, in the manga, it's only considered a natural process in one series). It's implied to be possible for Slowbro by the PokÚdex, though.

And why would you want to de-evolve Pokemon in the first place?

There are very few Pokemon that could take any significant advantage from it.

I can think of three scenarios in which one would benefit from devolution.

1: Player A evolves his Nuzleaf into Shiftry. Player A looks at Shiftry's moves, and realizes that he wanted Shiftry to know Extrasensory, a move it only learns in the Nuzleaf stage. Player A must devolve Shiftry back into Nuzleaf in order to teach it Extrasensory.

2: Player B catches a male Shiny Ralts in Ruby version. The Shiny Ralts has an Adamant nature. Reluctantly, Player B evolves the Ralts all the way to Gardevoir. Then, we hear of Gallade. Player B realizes his Gardevoir is much more suited to be a Gallade. Player B must devolve the Shiny Gardevoir back into Kirlia in order to evolve it into Gallade.

3: Player C evolves his Eevee into Glaceon and teaches Glaceon Ice Beam. Player C wants a Jolteon with Ice Beam. Player C must devolve Glaceon back into Eevee in order to evolve it into Jolteon, keeping Ice Beam all the while.

All of those sound awesome.

Well, the first two only make sense for people who avoid looking in the web for any info about the games. If not, they already know at which level they should wait before evolving their Nuzleaf or Kirlia (and I don't know what it being shiny has to do with anything).

The last one, OK, but like I said, there are not that many lines that can pull that out.
