We’ve put together a list of every evolutionary item in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, along with how to find them.

Over time, Nintendo has added a variety of evolutionary items to the Pokemon franchise. From stones to discs, fangs, claws, and “-izers,” trainers and developers, alike have found all sorts of ways to bring their Pokemon from form A to form B. This has only expanded with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, following a recent trend in fan-made ROM games allowing trade-mandatory species to evolve through a brand new item.

Below, we’ve put together a list of all such items currently included in Pokemon Legends: Arceus (PLA).
