Rhydon has 485 base stats and it evolved into Rhyperior. Also Scyther received an evolution and it has 500 base stats. Same with Magmar at 495 and Electabuzz at 490.

Even if you did say usually, there is still a precedence for it happening (more than once even) so it makes your point very weak. Xatu has as much a chance of getting an evolution as Rhydon did.

I'd wager that any pokemon at 500 base stats and under (and which hasn't already evolved twice) could receive an evolution. (although Scyther is a special case because it's base stats didn't increase)

Of course there are pokemon more in need and probably more likely to get an evolution than Xatu...but as we saw with Rhydon you can't really be sure what game freak are thinking.
