We have seen Pokemon evolve by levelup, stones, trade, interactions, and many more. But each gen there seems to be new methods for evolution. Do you think that we will see a new method? If so what?

I don't even know what they could possibly add, lmao. Perhaps an evolution based on frustration...like instead of having friendship with the Pokemon, it evolves by having a max dislike of the trainer. That's the only thing I can think of anyway.

Maybe more pokemon will evolve via trading w/ an item... although I really don't like that idea. xD

How about a digital Pokemon ala Porygon that changes formes or evolves when you're near a Nintendo Zone? That's world integration for you.

They could expand on the "Pokemon in party" evolution. Like Mantyke's.

Other than that, I can't see any other evolution method either. Just expanding on what is already there.

Maybe some Pokemon will evolve by putting them into a Digital capsule that allows tem to evolve into their next stage? I don't know. All the talk about X and Y being digital and whatnot @_@

What about a Pokemon that evolves after you streetpass or trade with X amount of people? I know this would not be possible for so many people so you could evolve it by level too. How about a Pokemon that's evolutions type is determined by whatever type it had fainted prior to evolving? That would be creative! You could also have a Pokemon that evolves early if you don't let it faint too much? That could be cool.

I've always hoped for some kind of evolution to be such a weird type of evo.

Example:
Grimer evolves only when he gains a level from the enemy that is 'badly poisoned' (that will trigger the evolution after the battle, if he doesn't faint somewhere later in the battle)

I thought of that too before, but now that I think of what it means...

Let's just say that the method of ignoring and purposely making an animal faint to make it stronger wouldn't fly well with PETA. XD

Yeah we don't need another attack on Pokemon from PETA.

Also, I don't like the idea of evolving through Wi-Fi or Dream World related stuff. Not everyone can do that, and heck, not everyone was able to get Escavalier and Accelgor in gen V because of that weird trade method (though that could be said about any trade evo Pokemon). But I think requiring Dream World or something would be a little mean of them.

I agree that it would be mean of them. But it would be cool nonetheless!

And I know exactly what you mean too about Accelgor and Escavalier...

I thought we got rid of Team PETA I mean Plasma last gen lol.

Maybe a pokemon evolves though streetpass after interacting with X number of people. If this gen were to have new eeveelutions they need a new method.

I can't really think of any, most have already been implemented. Any other evolution methods would seem to be kind of more annoying to do, like relating to Dream World, or passing people. But I'm kind of expecting GF to have the strangest ways of evolving.
1. Run for EXACTLY 157 steps on Route 2.
2. Do the same thing at night.
3. Now release 5 Pokemon.
4. Now go beat the Elite 4 using only this pokemon and it will evolve.

Is there any pokemon that evolve only in a particular season? If they haven't added that yet I could see them adding it if seasons make a return.

I don't see this happening because isn't making your Pokémon hate you kind of a bad message for the kiddies?

Well, they could add, if they go down the genetics route, some DNA Stone or something along those lines, that would evolve a Pokemon.

I felt that there will be new evolution methods,
as they said they will further evolve the world of pokemon.

Weather based evolution? Similar to Castform, but instead of changing shape, the Pokemon evolves into different species depending on the weather. :3

Or environment based evolution? As in, the Pokemon evolves into different species/types depending on whether it's leveled up in a cave/forest/building/at sea... etc.

Berry evolution? >_>
Accompanying party Pokemon based evolution? o.o
Oh oh, version based evolution? As in, a Pokemon evolves into A or B depending on whether you're playing X or Y? ;D

Player's gender based evolution? u_u
Nature based evolution?

Pokemon that only evolve upon breeding? (Sex is very important, yup)...

Ok yeah.

More Pokemon evolving via the Karrablast > Shelmet trading method would be interesting.

Just thought of a Food based Evolution.

If France is the base for the new region, Culinary arts is a big thing for the french so they could include a new minigame for cooking, similar to making poffin, except you can use new ingrediants besides berries.

Similar to Feebas needing to be fed beauty raising Pokeblocks/Poffin, they could include a food based evolution with new stats based on looks with each food raising that stat.
