Kind of hoping for some Eeveelutions, maybe rock or dragon. It'd be a nice little change. I'd also like to see Mawile and Sableye get an evolution.

If Mawile or Sableye get an evolution I will pre-order this game.

Maybe not, but you can at least make them decent. I'll take a buffed up Farfetch'd and Delibird that I can use in the RU/NU tier, happily.

Quote originally posted by Midnight Bear:
A shared pre-evo is pretty much all that could happen. Baby Pokémon, like you are proposing Luvdisc be turned into, can't breed, and Luvdisc can breed. Even if you're suggesting turning it into a line like Onix / Steelix without a Baby Pokémon, that still wouldn't work - a Steelix egg returns an Onix, whereas an Alomomola egg returns... Alomomola. Excepting Baby Pokemon from Incenses, when you breed any Pokémon you get the lowest form of their line.

Even from an OCD perspective, it would be more irritating, to me, for them to change their rules randomly just for two Pokémon.

Um, can I just say, on your last statement about breeding with Alomomola and Luvdisc, one thing. Marill and Azurill.

Marill were introduced in Gen 2. Azurill was introduced in gen 3. Breed two Marill, two Azumarill, or any Male Fairy/Water 1 Group Pokemon with a Female Marill/Azumarill, you get a Marill egg. Do all that with the mom holding a Sea Incense, you get Azurill.

What she was saying is that unless you breed with incense, it doesn't make sense. Azurill is also a Baby Pokemon so it itself cannot breed which is where the other person's OCD issue comes in.

I agree with you on Mawile, I totally forgot about him but an evolution for him is DEFINITELY needed!
I've wanted a Sableye evolution for a while.
I also agree with other posts on Castform. He has a really cool gimmick but is too weak to be used effectively.
Cacturne needs an evolution for sure. He has no staying power right now.
I would like to also see Banette get an evolution.
I also think Skarmory needs a pre-evolution, it's too big to be a stand-alone.

I think Luvdisc and Alomomola should have the first MID-evolution between them, as in Luvdisc evolves into something and then that thing evolved into Alomomola.

Evolutions I want:
New Eeveelution - Preferably dragon.
Dunsparce
Audino - It would be like the new Blissey.
Stunfisk - Never liked that Pokemon, but an evolution might make it more decent.
Rapidash - Not that it needs one, I just always wanted to see a pegasus based Pokemon and it would look cooler if it was a fire type.
Farfetch'd
Spinda
Chatot
Emolga
Pachirisu

Pre evolutions I want:
Sneasel
Heracross
Druddigon
Skarmory
YES SPINDA I WANT SPINDA TO BE A VIABLE OPTION IN BATTLE

Ditto evolution would ruin its uniqueness imo. I could somewhat imagine it but I don't think they could get anymore creative in a design when your basis is a pink blob. :(

I think there should be a Pokémon that is a pre-evolution of Miltank and Tauros. Which would appear more like a calf, and it would evolve into either Miltank or Tauros depending on what gender it is.

Hm... also, what about an evolution of Durant? It would be nice to see an evolution of Durant that would evolve into some queen ant Pokémon or something if it's female. Like how Vespiquen evolves from Combee in Generation IV and onwards.

Durant evo would be only good if it was a fire ant and had flash fire, to take on Heatmor, otherwise I don't think they can do it well without Heatmor doing the same. :(

I'm going to say Ditto need not evolve. It can already "evolve" into 648 other Pokémon, albeit temporarily.

If Durant got an evolution GameFreak would have to very careful with its stats, considering he is already a decent Pokemon. I mean he has Base ATT of 109, Base DEF of 112, and 109 in Speed. I mean for a steel type he already has a better base stat in speed than Cobalion and Jirachi.

For that reason, a Durant evolution just seems very doubtful to me.

I agree. A Ditto evolutions seems unnecessary. Taking into consideration that its evolution's only attack might be Transform as well, there wouldn't be much point in having one other than increased stats. And even then, it just isn't worth it in my opinion. Ditto's ability to transform into any Pokémon is as close to evolution as Ditto may ever get in my opinion ─ which isn't a bad thing if you ask me.

The producers of the anime do get word of any upcoming new games or generations ahead of time. It's how they're able to prep and shape the anime's upcoming episodes and new story arcs in order to promote the new gmaes come time of release.

Absolutely. But it's only natural for people to want their favourites to be usable. Though I wonder how they'd feel if their faves got evos and they turned out to be hideous.

I WANT TO SEE MORE EEVEELUTIONS!!!
I would certainly love to see a dragon type eevee, or even a ground or fighting type eevee... but really, any type they introduce the next generation would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not really fond of pre-evolutions... :/ They're cute but, they don't really contribute to anything in game in any way. I would rather see evolutions for Dunsparce, Farfetch'd, or Sableye. The first two and similar Pokémon are just so weak that they don't really serve a purpose for existing. They can't be used competitively; but with an evolution they may become actually usable. With Dunsparce for example, being it some sort of snake caterpillar, they could cook up any kind of evolution...!

Tauros, Sableye, Heracross, or even Lapras... all of them could use a evolution. Just like Rhyperior with Rhydon.

Well I don't know for others but surely Farfetch'd isn't even close to be one of my favorite Pokémon. Farfetch'd is just so weak it can be used in any way! Well, aside from being a very popular dish in Kanto according to the anime. Maybe they'll just eat all the Farfetch'd and stop the poor thing from existing...

I'm agreeing with everyone here, it would be neat to see a new eeveelution! For example a dragon-type one would be really cool, or maybe even one that's flying? I'm not exactly sure but I hope they give us some impressive Pokemon. I think they'll introduce Pokemon based off mythological creatures maybe such as griffins for flying types, or who knows :3? I believe Game Freak will go deeper in Pokemon's designs this time.

Yeah I have to agree farfetch'd isn't very well liked, as a battler or design-wise, so I'm not sure if fans will be pleased to see an evolution honestly. :<

All the more reason to give Farfetch'd an evolution if you ask me. If it's not well received by its design or poor stats, then what's the hurt in giving it a new stage in evolution to possibly correct those errors? It already has a decent movepool to learn from, and with Gen VI those set of moves will only expand. Should it gain an appealing evolution with stronger stats, I could see many fans changing their perspective on Farfetch'd. It certaintly wouldn't hurt if it's general popularity among the fans aren't that large in number anyway.

Personally, I like Farfetch'd's design. I see nothing wrong with it. I'd just like to see its stats get a good boost with an evolution since I think it's one of those older Pokémon that currently deserves one. My only real concern is how do you top a name like Farfetch'd?

To be honest, I would actually like to see a new evolution of Farfech'd, but if they're ever making a new one... I'd be expecting the design to be looking more like a bird samurai than anything else.

I think there's been fan art somewhere that shows something like that. But it surely would be interesting.

I doubt they'd evolve Farfetch'd...especially at this point.

Its supposed to be a joke. Its a duck with the leek-stick already included, saving everyone the trouble of getting one. Its ready to be cooked.

Don' be Abser'd, that would be R'duckulus.

One thing I could potentially see happening with the idea of a Farfetch'd evolution would be it becoming one of our very first Flying / Fighting type Pokémon.

I understand people wanting evolutions to Pokemon like Sablye and Farfech'd, but in my view, I'd rather not see them. Why? I don't think all Pokemon should be powerful, nor should all have evolutions. One thing I have always loved about Pokemon is that all the monsters are different, they may not all be strong, but they can be good for other things. I fear we might be losing this diversity, but hey, I'm open to change.
