The only Pokemon I've stopped from evolving is Chikorita but that was when I was playing Pokemon Silver. I always stopped Chikorita from evolving into Bayleef because I wanted Chikorita to become strong without evolving and Chikorita is my favorite Pokemon I don't care for Bayleef or Bayleef's evolved form.

All the time, if I like it as it is I don't evolve it. Heck sometimes I keep my Caterpie a Caterpie because I hate Metapod and Butterfree.

Really, the only pokemon I won't let evolve is my Haunter..
Even though you hav to trade for it to evolve, still, I wouldn't ever let it.
I just don't like Gengar anywhere near as much..

Yup,my Lotad,but by accident.
Also for my pokemon to learn moves quicker.

This seems more suitable for Pokémon General since this is about all Pokémon games and not just the Advance Generation ones.

Only Shroomish in Emerald so I could get my sexy Spore/Sub/HP Ghost/Focus Punch Breloom, still my proudest breeding achievement :)

Yep. It was Piplup because I followed the Pokemon movie. But even though Prinplup or it's evolution is kinda... ugly [no offense Prinplup fans xD].

I stopped lots of them, because they learn new attacks earlier. and some evolved pokemon are so damn ugly....

Nah, I've never stopped an evolution of any of my Pokémon. It was always my goal to get them to the last of their evolutionary line.

I know how to stop pokemon evolving if your game system is a Nintendo Gameboy. Just press B.

Anyway...I only stop my level 66 Dragonair from evolving, just because I really like Dragonair. It's pretty. :3

Yes, and who doesn't know that?

I stop Pokemon from evolving all the time. Once with two Shroomishes on a Ruby file, I evolved one early and kept the other unevolved so I'd eventually have a Mindpuncher and a Sporepuncher (I love both... Breloom rules either way). Quilava in Crystal. My Rhydon's been enevolved for a while, but that's because I can't trade it. I may not evolve it intentionally, though, since Rhyperior is kind of ugly... Does a Dragonair, and Eevee, and a Quilava on PMD count?

Oh, and one time I kept a Torchic unevolved for a whole playthrough of Sapphire. I finally evolved it when it was somewhere around level 70 two levels in a row, after I'd transferred it to Colosseum. Now it's rotting away in my Diamond PC... >.<

I remember I always did that with my charmander.

Why yes, I have stopped my Torchic from evolving on my Ruby. I liked Torchic back then, so I didn't want it to evolve. Later on, I got it up to Lv. 100, but I lost my Ruby and it's lost forever.

Only a Mudkip. But you can obviously understand why XD

I'll mostly do that for the sake of making them learn moves that their evos can't learn. But then of course, I'll evolve them after they learn that move. I only once stopped a Pokemon from evolving because I liked it the way it was -- Squirtle. But I DID evolve it eventually.

A Chikorita Lover! Why have we not met before? Unfortunately, I cannot answer your Question because my Brother Controls the 2nd Generation. Unless that's Sufficient enough to be a no.

In Gold, I always kept Gastly from evolving. It was my childhood favorite.

The only pokemon I can ever remember from evolving is Drifloon to get it to learn Ominous Wind at an earlier level so I could egg move it into a Castform.

Don't they tell you that, you know, in the game?
next thing you'll tell us is how to switch on a DS.

:t152:

Well I just assumed that I was the only Chikorita lover out there that's why we haven't met before...It's kind of silly but I've liked Chikorita since I saw the anime back in fall 2000 and sometimes I dreamed about encountering a Chikorita in real life.

There have been a few, but the most recent was a Charmander on my Diamond Version. I have raised it to lv.30 and still have not let it evolve.

Exactly, evolution is a natural process for your Pokémon, so I embrace it. However, I do understand to not evolve it for breeding purposes etc.

I remember I always did that with my charmander.

I'm sorry, but why? I mean, one word. Charizard.

Why would you do that?
Evolved pokemon are designed to be stronger.

The only exceptions are: Vigoroth and Scyther.
Vigoroth because the evolved for has that trait.
Scyther because it has the same stat sum.

I stopped my Mudkip from evolving. He's level 64 and is still a Mudkip. xD I just keep him for novelty purposes. Also, my Eevee, if that counts. He tried to evolve at level five, so I stopped him. I evolved him in to an Umbreon at around level 32 or so.

I stopped my Totodile from evolving. It reached level 100 and i still have it. There was a problem so i gave it an everstone.

Very rarely have I prevented a pokemon from evolving, but I have done it before so a pokemon would learn a certain move early. One time I trained a Magikarp to L30, just so I could see for myself if it really does learn Flail. To this day I have never used an Everstone.

In Pearl, I waited untill the Elite Four to let my Piplup evolve.
The reason is simple, I found it just such a cute little critter and then I evolves into .. that.

But now I've been breading and I have a whole box filled :3
