It would be cool if Spinda evolved into a powerful pokemon that gets confused through its ability, in a sort of similar drawback to Slaking.
Mmmmmm, no too sure about this. Is it a permanent confusion, or would it be able to eventually snap out of it? If it's the former, then I wouldn't really see great use for it, but I can deal with the latter.

Maybe it gives it the effect of outrage? Like after two or three turns of consecutive attacks it becomes confused.
Anyways, I hope it's evolution would look better, it's not the best looking of the Hoenn Pokémon...still cute though.

I'd say after three attack is more fair. Two is too frequent, and might piss some people off unnecessarily. u__u

It really all depends on it's power, if it has Slacking,Regigigas (and Kyogre and Groudon) stats I must say two would be the most likely if it is to have an ability like what we're talking about.
How about an alternate evolution for Slakoth?

I wouldn't have anything against a Slakoth alternate evo, but is it ultimately necessary? I suppose it would be interesting to think about if Slakoth evolved into something even more energetic and hyper. @_@

Yeah I like the Outrage-esque idea for Spinda.

If they gave a special hold item for Vigoroth to make it a bit more powerful, they could eliminate the need for an alternate evolution line.

It's not really necessary, but as you said it'll be interesting to see a hyper and energetic evolution, unlike Slacking.

Problem is, it'll have an issue carrying that item 24/7, eliminating the viability for anything else, really. It's much easier to just give it an alternate evo rather than ruin current possible movesets for it.

I don't really get the point of giving Vigoroth an alternative evolution. I always felt like the point of it was choosing something moderately strong and not having to only move every other turn, or have great power, but sacrifice some movement. If you give it another evolution, you're basically stripping away that choice and just making Vigoroth's alternate stronger. Slaking would pretty much be useless at that point, minus MAYBE outside double battles to give something else Truant.

How about a Dugtrio evolution? I feel like it should've gotten one back in Gen IV. Maybe it could be a normal looking animal mole that way we never would expect it evolved from the triple cartoon mole.

I think there should be an alternate evo for Remoraid. Remoraid and Octillery just don't look like eachother at all! Remoraid should evolve into a Pure Water typed biggerfish. The fish that evolves into an octopuss us so weird imo.

But...what else would it evolve into? D: I feel that Remoraid itself is fine evolving into Octillery, I don't see anything actually wrong with it. .___. At first, I thought it was awkward myself, for a mere fish to evolve into an octopus, and then I just kind of nodded and accepted it because this is GF, and if that's the kind of evolution they want to give it, then so be it, really. Honestly, if anything needs an evolution, it should be Octillery itself to improve it in some manner. Just slightly, though.

Base 105 Attack/Special Attack kind of says that it's powerful enough and doesn't really need any evolutions, though I'm sure one more wouldn't be overkill.

idk, if it is I can't help but think it'd be like those ugly drawings of it having legs below, and instead of three, there would be like five heads ;_;

Yeah, a Dugtrio evolution would be awkward. u__u I remember someone saying somewhere that the heads could be fused though, kind of like Magneton combining into Magnezone?

Even if the heads are fused it wouldn't look very appealing at all imo. :( I never liked Magnezone, so if it's like that then yeah...

That was me.

As for the Octillery evo, remind me what's its total base stat is before I could approve it getting an evolution.

Dotrio evo could have some proto wings and have like 5 heads, or be an Hydra bird thing.

How about a Final trubish evolution? It could be based on one of those giant metal trash cans...it could be Poison/Steel.

300 -> 480

But there are some pokemon showing its not impossible:
Electabuzz
360 -> 490 -> 540
Magmar
365 -> 495 -> 540
Rhydon
345-> 485 -> 535

Scyther (500->500) and Porygon2 (395->515->535) are even more extreme, but I regard them to be special cases and not good examples.

I wouldn't be opposed to this! n__n Perhaps Garbordor could use a bit more oomph to it with a evo, and if that's the case, then I'm all for it, really. :3

If Garbodor gets an evolution, then you might as well have to give Weezing and Muk an evolution too, for they represent a trio of pollution (air, land, and water). However, both Muk and Weezing are already decent Pokemon and have base stats higher than 465, so there's no need for them to have one. Garbodor would've been decent as well if its offenses were higher on either Attack or SpA (it's got some really useful moves like Drain Punch thanks to BW2).

It's evolution could gain good defenses...especially if it gains the steel type seeing how members of the type tend to have high defenses...

Steel/Poison would be a weird typing, as you wouldn't really imagine something metal having any sort of poisonous attributes. I guess something like a steel best being eroded by acid or something would be cool?

Some metals on the periodic table are poisonous though. Like Mercury. Its not entirely out of the question.
