There are pokemon that evolve into forms that are totally indistinguishable from their form before evolution. How many are there?

Here are some that I can remember:

Caterpie --> Metapod --> Butterfree
Kakuna --> Cocoon --> Beedrill
Magicarp --> Gyarados
Remoraid --> Octillery

Futachimaru -> Daikenki (what? This evolution dramatically changes the Pokemon's appearance)
Poliwhirl -> Politoed

Snorunt to Glalie (in my opinion)

Feebas to Milotic

These are the main ones that spring to mind that haven't been mentioned. I guess you could also include the Wurmple evolutionary chain.

Feebas evolving into Milotic is another drastic change.

Venonat - Venomoth.
Combee - Vespiquen.

In my opinion Venonat has quite a dramatic change of form when it evolves into Venomoth

Another Pokemon with a dramatic change of form when it evolves is Combee evolving to Vespiquen

One popular one that hasn't been mentioned.

What about the Eeveelutions. They do change quite a bit and their type changes so I think it's a valid candidate for a Pokemon that changes dramatically.

Eevee - Vaporeon.
Eevee - Jolteon.
Eevee - Flareon.
Eevee - Espeon.
Eevee - Umbreon.
Eevee - Leafeon.
Eevee - Glaceon.

I can only think of Haxorus at the moment. Well I can say too that Cubchoo -> Beartic seems to fit this description well too.

i would say
Trapinch-Vibrava-Flygon
trapinch isn't even dragon type and vibrava's stats are low for a dragon type

Apart from the ones already mentioned, Frillish and Jellicent looks remarkably different - especially their heads. Frillish looks kinda graceful, almost; Jellicent, on the other hand, looks like someone with a nut allergy who's just ingested a box of cashew nuts!
