Although trade evolution can be useful in a lot of situations (namely to get Golem, Machamp, Alakazam and Gengar), I personally don't like it now that I don't have a gameboy to play the games on.

As I use an emulator on my Android, getting certain Pokemon is clearly out of the question and therefore it's a selfish rreason why I don't like it :p

As I don't really play the official games anymore though, I don't mind as the trading to evolve limitation doesn't exist.
It's a good job that I'm not able to make my own ROM hack. It would be insanely difficult to complete, even for me!

In terms of filling out the pokedex, the GTS Request system is the best thing that happened to trade evolutions.

I will say that GameFreak could have been more helpful in explaining the Shelmet/Karrablast evolution mechanics in the game. Their pokedex entries and the references to electricity made me think you had to level them up in the Chargestone Cave.

I found that trading was nice when i was young and still in school where people played the game around me. Now that that is not the case it is just an annoying part of the game that generates gamefreak more money.

You have no idea how I hate trade evolution. Ever since I found out that, to get my hands on the almighty Alakazam, I needed to trade Kadabra.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, the day Pokémon pulled a Dallas and jumped the shark.
