Couldn't you still evolve it by trading while it holds a Deepseascale?

This place needs more activity so I will give us some new topics.

What's your favourite method of evolution? Why do you like this method? What Pokémon are you always eager to evolve when you catch it?



Do you prefer non-evolving Pokémon or Pokémon that evolve?

Call me old school but I still love plain old levelling evolution. I hate trading cause I'm not huge of playing Pokemon with other people, and I never know when's the best time to evolve a Pokemon with a stone and then I do it too early cause I get impatient so then I don't get the best moves, etc. xD

Do you prefer non-evolving Pokémon or Pokémon that evolve?

I like two stage Pokemon, like the starters the best because to me, an evolution is in itself like a little goal. I'm a huge fan of making little goals for myself so I can be satisfied when I reach them, and evolution is one of those, haha. I wouldn't mind if they even had more evolutions, like a Pokemon that evolved every 10 levels so I was never bored with it. xD

I give Exp. Share to Pokémon I want to train. And I'm aiming Pokémon which can be evolve. Next I go to league and complete that league over and over again. And i stop when I am satisfied with that Pokémon. Final evolution or level 50. And then just evolve next Pokémon.

I like the normal leveling up method. Simply because it's simpler to achieve. You can do some hardcore grinding, or train the way you'd normally do without worrying about it fainting,or the location. Plus I usually play alone,and I don't like the "GTS" very much,it's easy for you to get ripped off there,so I don't like Trade Evolutions ...
Well, mostly starters and early game ones, but I don't evolve some further than once ... Like Lillipup or Geodude

Do you prefer non-evolving Pokémon or Pokémon that evolve?

I like the evolving ones, just for the pleasure of evolving it ...

Replying to my own questions. :3

My favourite method is Mantyke's evolution, where it evolves by levelling up with a Remoraid in the party. I love love creative stuff like that. :D I wish that were how Slowpoke evolved (with Shellder).
Normal levelling up kind of bores me. I like the trading evolutions and the stones the most. Whenever I have an Eevee I automatically formulate in my head "ooooooh which one will I evolve it into?" :3 So Eevee is my favourite Pokémon to evolve. I don't have a lot of opportunities to trade but I still like trading evolutions. :P

By the way . . . would anyone be willing to go on WiFi with me right now? xD I need to evolve my Porygon.

Do you prefer non-evolving Pokémon or Pokémon that evolve?
I love evolving them. Non-evolving Pokémon almost kind of make me sad. I just like thinking "ooooh it can get even more powerful than this :3" and seeing them grow up. <33 I tend to prefer three-stage lines for this reason. :3

Oh man Eevee. I can't stand Eevee because I'm incredibly indecisive so I can never decide what I want to evolve it into, I like Espeon the best but I never have the patience to evolve it that way :(

The only Eevee form I'll ever use is Jolteon because of its awesome Speed and Special Attack... exactly what a good Electric-type should be. I can't be bothered training the other forms of it, though.

I never liked Jolteon in the least. I thought the design was super ugly compared to the rest of the Eeveelutions :( With all the ones available now I really can't understand people that like Jolteon's design above all the others.

Exp. Share + beating the League. I like it because it's a lot easier and faster than grinding at times.
Hmm... I don't know.

Ones that evolve, but I don't fully evolve all of them.

You're confusing something ...
I think it meant if level-up,happiness,trade,etc.
That's a way of grinding.
But sure that is an easy way of grinding

Maybe it's because I've has Espeon on my team several times, and then I had Togekiss, Umbreon and Roserade (caught as a Budew) on my Platinum, but evolution by friendship isn't too hard imo. On my Soul Silver, because I traveled with the Togepi until I had my other members of my team, it evolved at... level 7? The Chansey that I evolved for the Pokedex evolved even sooner.

This is coming from someone who hates grinding/battling Pokemon over and over again for a good period of time, mind ya'll.

I agree with you! Though with a Togekiss, Roserade, and a Lucario appearing several times in my team already, I got used to it. The earliest I had a Pokemon evolve by happiness was level 12. I was rich then. fed it lot of vitamins.

I agree with this completely. I really like happiness evolution. :) Actually my Pokémon always evolve from happiness without needing any special intervention, since automatically when I am training a Pokémon I always hatch it from an egg, feed it as many vitamins as I can (unless I'm not feeling lazy about EV training), and level it up several times as I EV, then even more afterwards to get it up to level 50. The only difference whatsoever here is that I have the Pokémon in question hold a Soothe Bell as I feed it vitamins. :3

I don't really like to evolve my Pokemon through happiness when I'm just getting them for the Pokedex. I find it really time consuming and annoying. I don't mind doing it though if it's for an in-game team or EV training, because they get happy pretty quickly anyway.

VAPOREON IS THE BEST EEVEELUTION

Here are my favourite Eeveelutions in order:

Glaceon
Umbreon
Espeon
Vaporeon
Leafeon
Flareon
Jolteon

Now don't get me wrong, I do love them all. Though I ranked them in order of how pretty I think they are, which is a little shallow

I really like all the Eeveelutions, I think they're all wonderful! Vaporeon is just the most wonderful imo.

Well yes and no, I am the seventh Vaporeon, but I'll tell the story of that in a series of blogs next month.

Also I feel sorry for the Porygon family.

Wow, so much Jolteon hate... but honestly, if Electrode had better Special Attack, I'd definitely be using it instead... I do much prefer Electrode's appearance. In fact, I am more apt to use our favorite smiling exploding ball in an in-game setting... it's only competitive play where I switch over to Jolteon to zap stuff.

I don't think I've used a Porygon once, to be honest.
