I don't evolve my shiny Pokemon. Well, I did evolve a Chikorita, but that was just stupid.

If, for some reason, I'm training a Munchlax, I don't let it evolve. I just don't like Snorlax as much. I:
I can't think of a good signature.

Vibrava because cute
Pidgey for exactly the same reason.

I've never evolved any of my Pikachus like most people have said. Mainly because I'm too lazy to find a THunderstone or flip through my bag to find one, but also since I prefer Pikachu's adorable design over Raichu's. Raichu is a nice electric-type but the Light Ball gives Pikachu an advantage, cuteness and power-wise.

Oh and I never evolve my Wingulls usually. They're just so adorable and I can't let them evolve for some strange reason. Also because I'm really fond of Mr Briney and him screaming "WROOOOAR PEEKO", might of contributed. I sometimes let Wingulls evolve but usually I don't unless I absolutely have to. :<

I've only done this once. On my first Generation V game. When I caught Joltik, I pressed B every time she attempted to evolve in Gavantula. I made a promise when I started that save. "I will not evolve my Joltik." Obviously I discovered the repercussions of not letting her evolve, especially during the Elite Four encounters . Anyway, now I have her in Black 2, still there looking cute as a button. While I was training her to level 100 in Black 2, there were several times I almost threw in the towel and let her evolve. But at the last moment, I had a change of heart and hit B again. Forever my Joltik. :'3

The only Pokemon I've refused to evolve was Quilava. It still looks relatively adorable, and has a higher battle capacity than Cyndaquil does. Typhlosion is strong, sure, but it looks terrifyingly ferocious. Other than that, I evolve basically every Pokemon I capture. With the exception of Pikachu...maybe...

I don't evolve Pokemon that need certain stones, as they tend to stop learning moves once you use the stone on them (good example of this is Growlithe, which gets good moves like Extremespeed and Flamethrower pretty late on, as when you evolve it into Arcanine immediately, it will halt the process of learning new moves).

Long ago, I would play Red or Yellow. The Pokemon evolve from trading was impossible for me since nothing was online, and no cable. I would have my Geodude or even Graveler on my team and not have Golem. Haha
Also, found a Lv. 76 Pikachu in my PC storage in my Blue version recently. lol
Otherwise, I do evolve my Pokemon. If Pokemon were to be real I think twice more than playing the actual game and not evolve my pet...

There are many Pokemon I don't evolve into their final stage, mainly due to design. For Starters, most of the Starters. The entire First Gen I like the second forms best, 2nd Gen: I keep Chikorita and Quilava, 3rd Gen: Grovile and Marshtomp. I don't really care for any of the 4th Gen. Then in the 5th Gen I like Dewott Best.
Mainly though, Sneasel, which is my favorite Pokemon in general, and absolutely refuse Wevile.

Sometimes I don't for things like challenges. Actually it's normally for things like challenges. Otherwise I think other than my Marshtomp (who I did evolve into a Swampert before I restarted Ruby but whatever) all the Pokemon on my main teams are fully evolved. However, if I felt like it there are plenty of Pokemon that I would not evolve such as Quilava, Aipom, Pikachu, Litwick, etc etc because I like their design more than their final evolution's.
I am the person I am now precisely because of who I was.
We don't just change. We continue on from that point.

Most of the time I don't evolve my Pidgey, just because I really want it to stay as it is. Naturally this means it won't work well as part of my main team as I get further in the games, but whatever man, can't let go of my Pidgey >:O

If I have a spare Pikachu, I never want to evolve it because I wanted to be like Ash at one point. And usually if it's a male, I do evolve a female into Raichu though.

There is only one Pokemon that I never evolve.

That Pokemon is the only one that actually gets weaker upon evolution.

The Pokemon, in question, is Magikarp.

Ok, in all seriousness, I have to go with Vigoroth. At least in maingame, where I find no use for Skill Swap. Metagame, I can see it happening.

I never evolve Totodile or Pikachu. Actually, there's alot of pokemon I don't evolve, primarily because I don't like the evolved forms design. Never gave a crap about stats.

I got a Pikachu that I don't evolve. Because I use it on wi-fi battles to prove that Pikachu is an awesome Pokemon despite what Pikachu haters say

There aren't any that I never evolve, but there are a few of which I catch more than one, so that I can evolve one and keep the other unevolved - Dragonair/Dragonite, Vigoroth/Slaking, Scyther/Scizor...

Chansey, Magneton and Vigoroth. They can all tank hits better with an Eviolite, but also, Chansey looks cuter, Magneton is faster and Vigoroth has a better ability than their pre-evolutions.
Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

I usually evolve every Pokemon, only exception was a Vigoroth i had in Sapphire (because of his ability) and if a Pokemon can learn a certain attack his Evolution can't or needs a TM to, like Growlithe and Flamethrower. Oh yeah, and i delay stone evolutions as much as possible

I tend to avoid evolving Haunter, Graveller, Kadabra, Pidgeotto, Tranquill or Ducklett. I prefer their designs to those of their evolutions and I don't engage in competitive battling, so it doesn't really hurt my play.

I sometimes just give up and let them evolve when I get sick of hitting "B", though.

I have never had a reason to hold a pokémon back from evolution. If I want to use unevolved pokémon I'll stick with mystery dungeon.
