I don't think it'll be any more overpowered than say Salamence, and Hydreigon (not saying it'll get Psuedo stats, that'll be insane).

I'm still waiting on a male only Buneary evolution.

I know this is bizarre reasoning but hear me out for a second.

We have Natu, which evolves into Xatu. What if we get an evolution for Xatu this gen called Yatu? (because of Pokemon XY)

Silly reasoning I know but Xatu could do with an evo and Yatu seems like the perfect name.

Lmao that's awesome. But then it wouldn't be version-exclusive because it's an evolution ;_;

Xatu isn't a version exclusive...and even if it were Gen IV gave Misdevius, and Murkrow evolutions and they were still version exclusives.

Again, Pokemon who with base stats over 465 usually don't receive evolutions. Xatu's base stats are around 470, so tough luck. The only thing they can do is make a split evolution, but it'll only outclass Xatu, and we don't want that to happen.

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.

The people who only look at the competitive side tend to ruin the fun imo. Not everything is about stats for all fans, some like using weak Pokémon who look cute, or cool. Likewise any Pokémon that hasn't evolved twice, or is a legendary can evolve.

Moving on to another Psychic/Flying Pokémon, how about an evolution for Swoobat? It's the Unova clone of Golbat so it's likely imo.

How about a Raticate evolution ? Tentacruel evo would look so badass and why not Electrode too ?

Tbh I don't see any of the regional rodents or the regional two stage birds getting evolutions, though I do desire them.
I'm all for Tentacruel, and Electrode getting evolutions I imagine Tentacruel to be a giant alien looking jellyfish...well more than it is now. Electrode...a Master or an Ultra ball looking thing surrounded by blue crackling electricity due to it's internal electricity overflowing upon evolution. I hope they give it better attack stats, it's already fast so it can become a sweeper.

Gamefreak doesn't care about Base stat when it comes to who should evolve. It has been discussed before. There are Pokemon that evolve with high base stats.

Even though its the clone of the Zubat family it already evolves by happiness....so really it be a closer clone to Togepi based on evolution. Base form -> Happiness -> Stage 1 -> (Stone) -> Stage 2.

Only really way I see Swoobat evolving.

Same here, either by stone, or by trade with some sort of item. I guess they could also have it evolve by location, like in a cave with many waves causing it to mutate/evolve.

Nooo it would be exclusive to X, and Yatu would be exclusive to Y, but having an evolution exclusive to one game would be weird ahaha.

Oh...well who's to say they'll make it exclusive...and if they make a Yatu why not also make a Zatu which can appear in both X and the third version (which may be Z). I doubt they make evolutions of Xatu or alternates of Natu just due to it's first letter.

look, we all know bouffalant is the evolution of taorus right? the creators just dont wanna admit that. same with alomomola and luvdisc. All they need to do is to put a new pokemon between these 2 and there you go! a full evolution chain! also, i kinda wanna see a absol and pachirisu pre-evo or evo respectivley.

Except buffalos and bulls aren't the same species, which is why they'll never have an evolution connection. The only Pokemon that's related to Tauros is Miltank because both share the same base stats and are both cattle.

We should get a pre evolution of the cattle duo to link them rather than some random middle evolution linking two Pokémon that aren't connected beyond one being the regional clone of the other...

Nope, sorry sir, but you are seriously misguided. Gamefreak has said no Gen 5 is related to any previous Pokemon. So none of those are evolutions to the previous Pokemon. They never will be.

Miltank and Tauros aren't related. Unlike Nidoran and Volbeat/Illumise, you cannot breed one and get the other. They are both based on bovines but neither are related to the other (yet)

I feel like they should've made a proper connection... it's almost like Nidoqueen not being able to breed while her counterpart can...they should fix that out of all things.

I wonder if Sableye may get an evolution or a pre evolution that evolves into it later in the movie like Munchlax did in Destiny Deoxys.

Nidoqueen is based off how some queens are incapable of having children while the king then sleeps around with others to create heirs.

As for Sableye, watch he'll make an Anime debut in Dekkora and get captured by one of the three characters.

Something I thought of in another thread...

Do you have any pokemon that you'd hate to see get an evolution purely because they already look amazing?

For me I'd hate to see Cohagrigus get an evolution, it just looks perfect already.

I get that but why can't her second stage breed either...she's not a queen yet...
Come to think about it perhaps the Milktank not being able to produce any Taurus is based on how farmers prefer to have cows over bulls...

As I said in the other thread, I don't really have any, unless of course they're to give that Pokémon the Purugly treatment, shivers.

Maybe it could be like Leafeon and Glaceon, where you need to take the Natu to a region exclusive location?
