Evolving Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a bit different than in past titles. Instead of Pokémon automatically evolving when they complete a certain requirement, like reaching a certain level or leveling up while holding an item. Pokémon will now wait to evolve until players tell it to, which can be done in the game’s menu.
Some Pokémon will also need to meet certain conditions to have the ability to evolve. One of those conditions is holding a Dusk Stone. Some Pokémon will need to have this item for players to have them evolve.
- Misdreavus: While it is holding a Dusk Stone, players will be able to evolve Misdreavus into Mismagius.
- Murkrow: While holding a Dusk Stone, players will have the option to evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow.

It is important to note that once a Pokémon is evolved using this method, it will consume the item held. If players give either of these Pokémon a Dusk Stone and then choose to evolve it, they will no longer have that item, so it is important to carefully choose which Pokémon to evolve.
