to not evolve your starter?
on my leaf green game i have a level 76 charmander
and on diamond i had a piplup level 40 something until i had to evolve it so empoleon could learn rock climb (currently searching for a piplup to trade!)
have you ever done that?
i just think the pokemon are cuter when they arent evolved...

I think its fine. I have a seedot on level 63 and still growing. I evolved my starter though, just for the moves.

Not at all. I personally prefer having good looking Pokemon over strong ones. You could call me more of a contest person than a battling one. :P

I rarely evolve Pokemon I think look cooler. For example, Dragonite is fat... But Dragonair isn't XD
Disclaimer: I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST DRAGONITE

No, that isn't weird at all. I didn't evolve my Turtwig until it was level 60.

Well, it's not weird at all, just probaly more sensible to evolve them for the stat changes & etc.

I always evolve my Pokemon when they are suppose to evolve. But I dont see it as being weird of some sort

Nope, it's not wierd at all XD I agree with Nanako who said that she prefered Good looking ones. I still have my Squirtle in Leaf Green, and it was some time before I let my Pidgeotto evolve into Pidgeot. Do you think that I'm going to let my Phanpy evolve? Not a chance! :P I only let Charmander and Mareep evolve.

Thats something I want to do but situations betray me and insists me to evolve. =[
Its not weird , it may be even more of the advantage.

There's something you can make Pokemon hold that stops them from evolving, I forgot what it is though...

Some Pokemon learn moves that they wouldn't unless held back from evolving for a few more levels, but I think that's the only advantage.

I used to keep it at stage 2 because they always look great at that stage.

It's not weird unless you're competitively battling....then it's just stupid. But yeah, what's with unevolved pokes being so much cuter?

I almost always evolve my pokes unless I need them to learn a certain move, but in sapphire I have a mudkip at some uber high level (nicknamed IherdULiek xD) and in leaf green I have a squirtle that I plan to not evolve.

I always evolve my starter, i prefer strong looking pokemon like Charizard over cute ones like Charmander, it is also good with the moves

I do find it awkward. I love evolving my pokemon for the dex data and the strength gains.

I dont find it strange.I have a level one hundred abra and cleffa. I traded the cleffa for a level one hundered shiny gallade. People showing off their pokemon on the GTS tick me off, so I have a few of those pokemon to suprise them.

No, because your start learns moves that it can't when it evolves, right? I think Torchic can learn Fire Spin at level 25, but Combusken and Blaziken cannot. I'd evolve your Charmander though so you can teach it Blast Burn.

Ever stone? I like evolution for all of hoenn starters, and Johto, I don't like how blastoise looks so if i ever pick squirtle i wouldn't let it evolve.

Well if you keep your pokemon on stage one they learn moves much faster. They can learn moves that stage three cant... but also vice versa.

No way! It makes things a little more difficult but i kept my turtwig until like lv 34 and then evolved it, i miss it :(
