However, unlike other evolution stones that require you to get six badges, the Everstone becomes available in the shop right after the beginning of the game. After heading to the presents shop, navigate to the General items to purchase Everstone.

Everstone Uses & Effects

The only use of Everstone in the game is guaranteeing a certain nature of the child Pokemon. If you weren’t aware, Natures are randomly selected for the Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. However, if you make the parent Pokemon hold an Everstone, then there is a high chance that the hatched Pokemon will inherit the exact Nature.

To make your Pokemon hold the Everstone, press X on your Nintendo Switch and then select the Pokemon with the A button. Finally, ask the critter to hold the item.

The in-game description of the Everstone states:

“An item to be held by a Pokémon. A Pokémon holding this peculiar stone is prevented from evolving.”
