We've put together a full list of all the Pokemon in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that evolve using a Dusk Stone.

At the time of writing, there are four Pokemon that require a Dusk Stone to evolve in the entire franchise. Of these, two are previously single-form species that received a secondary branch with the introduction of Generation IV and the Sinnoh region. This made both Pokemon obvious choices to be included in the Hiusian PokeDex, meaning the Dusk Stone would also be making an appearance.

Below, we've explained both Pokemon, their evolutions, and the Dusk Stone item, itself.

Dusk Stones are dark purple gemstones that progressively get a darker shade of purple toward the center. Its description states that the stone "holds shadows as dark as can be." More information about how to go about getting a Dusk Stone can be found in our Evolutionary Item guide.

At the time of writing, two Pokemon require a Dusk Stone to evolve in Pokemon Legends: Arceus:

  • Murkrow (Honchkrow)
  • Misdreavus (Mismagius)

Murkrow can be found in Cloudpool Ridge in the Crimson Mirelands as well as Crossing Slope, Veilstone Cape, Hideaway Bay, and Islespy Shore in the Cobalt Coastlands. Its evolution, Honchkrow, only requires the use of the Dusk Stone. No other circumstances need to be met.

Honchkrow is also known as the "Big Boss" Pokemon due to its position as the "head honcho" of flocks of Murkrow. Typically, a group of Murkow will be under the leadership of a single Honchkrow, which comes to aid their leader when the Honchkrow calls—drowning the target in a flood of black feathers. For this reason, it is also called the "Summoner of the Night." Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #141.

Misdreavus can be found exclusively in the Coronet Highlands at Stonetooth Rows, Sacred Plaza, and Celestica Ruins. It only requires the use of a Dusk Stone to evolve into Mismagius.

Mismagius, the "Magical" Pokemon, is best known for its constant chanting and recital of incantations. According to legend, these incantations ward off misfortune, so humans have been eager to give it shelter in their homes. However, the oppose is also possible, should one incur its wrath. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #198.
