We have Hydreigon, an overly aggressive maniac dragon that attack everything it sees.

....You can hardly get anymore evil than that. xD; I think it's definitely possible!

Twilight is right, i don't see how a possible Houndoom evo could look more evil than Hydreigon!

I really hope they don't do the three-headed Pokémon thing again. Although I'd love a Houndoom evolutino, we already have Dodrio, Magneton, Dugtrio, Hydreigon with three-headed evolutions. No more =P

But why not i know there are already some 3-headed Pokemon out there, but it's not like there is a huge amount of them, plus it would fit to Houndoom's design and theme...you made me really sad Jake :/

Well, if you wanted to go the extra mile, then I'd say go for more than three heads, tbh. Hydras normally have like 10, so breaking the mold here with just having three heads wouldn't be impossible to do (though design-wise, it'd be quite strange). xD;

Sorry =x I just think the design is been used so much I don't want anymore =P They very well might make it happen, but I'd rather that they didn't. Plus they usually go from two heads to three (excluding Magneton and Dugtrio for that one), so it'd be weird to see it. As for the Hydra thing...errr 10 headed dog wat.

Yeah, which is precisely why I said that the design would be rather questionable, but hey, I wouldn't be totally against it if it happens! :x Depends on how GF wants to make to happen. As long as it isn't...ugly or anything like that.

Quote originally posted by XanderO:
Starters can't have Pre-evolutions. They are already in 3 stage sets.
I actually only meant to put out my opinion that some starters, like those in Kanto's reptile trio, are similar enough to potentially have a pre-evolution…if GameFreak reads my following post:

Quote originally posted by RandomDSdevel:
Why does GameFreak limit Pokémon to only two evolutions? I mean, it does make sense that some people wouldn't find themselves able to keep track of more than that, but evolution trees could do some cool things if this limitation were removed. They could split more than two times (although I don't think any splits have affected any evolutionary tree more than once; it would be cool to see this happen,) and they could also connect similar evolutionary trees via shared pre-evolutions that aren't currently possible due to this limitation (most of the electric rodents could get share a prevo even with the limitation in place, I think, and that might foreshadow the limitation's removal.)
But, in a reply posted by Jake♫ and quoted below, the probability that this might occur is next to nothing:

Quote originally posted by Jake♫:
Because you're now changing how evolution has worked for five generations of games. Splitting things just for the sake of doing it isn't going to add anything to the games except unneeded complexity that is going to confuse people. Just because people think things looks similar doesn't mean they're related, and going back to change them for fan service is just a silly thing to do. If they meant for similar things to be related than they would be.…
At best, they might just make a few exceptions to the rule…after a few more generations. So I'm jumping the gun.

Quote originally posted by XanderO:
Same base doesn't mean same species. Pikachu, Rattatta, and Sandshrew are all mouse Pokemon. By that they should all share an evolutionary family.

This is of course ignoring the fact that no Gen 5 Pokemon are related to older generation Pokemon as stated by the creators.

I doubt we'll ever get any linking between Gen 5 and past generation Pokemon.
When and where did GameFreak ever tell us that none of the Gen. V Pokémon have no evolutionary relation to any Pokémon from the previous generations?

Quote originally posted by Jake♫:
No. Zubat's line is already three stages, it's not going to be given any sort of new pre-evolution or evolution. However I'd definitely be fine giving the Woobat line a third evolution similar to the friendship one of Crobat.
I meant that there could be a split evolution between those two lines, but, now that I look into it, their coloration and designs are just a tad too different from those of each other's evolutionary lines to really be related closely enough to be connected via evolution.

Quote originally posted by XanderO:


Manaphy is Genderless. Phione is supposed to be a seperate species through combining Ditto's DNA with Manaphy's. Since Phione is considered a Legendary Pokemon by Gamefreak and TPC, she won't be getting an evolution.

Oh…I guess that I misunderstood that Manaphy and Generation IV changed how Ditto breeding had worked since the beginning of Pokémon. Usually, this process produces the earliest evolutionary predecessor of the other Pokémon involved in the breeding session.

Personally, I would love to see a Munchlax pre-evolution. Also, a split evolution for Dragonair may be really nice. I love split evolutions and I want to see more of them in gen. 6.

I really don't get everyone's want for split evolutions. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the point of adding a split in a line this far down the line for stuff that's already fantastic (especially the Dragonite line). Especially with how Unova marked a new start, I'd imagine that the following region is going to follow that theme as well, not giving us new stuff.

I REALLY would love some new evolutions, especially the stuff that I have commented in this thread alreayd. It actually happening just has a low likelihood =/

I have nothing against wanting a split evolution for Weepinbell for example, because I feel that, as generations progress, there has to be something to compensate because I just feel that Victrebell itself cannot keep up with the offensive metagame that we have currently, if that makes sense. I could be wrong though, but that's how I feel. Otherwise, we don't need so many split evos of a lot of things, really. :x

A pre-evolution for a pokemon that's already a Pre-evolution? I love Munchlax and Snorlax, but i think they are awesome the way the are, and another pre-evo would just be weird...and not fit at all imo.


Quote originally posted by Jake♫:

I totally agree, i want to see new pokemon, like brand-new pokemon. Unova did a pretty good job at that, and although i didn't love all the new pokes and their design, i like how they made the effort to create a bunch of new ones. Creating an endless number of new pre-evolutions/evolutions for pokemon that already exist just seems like the easy route...and it would complicate things in unnecessary ways

I feel that split evolutions add an extra sense of customization to your team. (That's why I love the concept of eeveelutions) I feel that if done right, a split evolution for Dragonair may be really cool. For instance, instead of deciding to evolve it into a Dragonite, you can choose to evolve it to a new Pokemon that has the same serpent-like body to dragonair if that makes any sense lol

At the very beginning of Generation 5. While we were still getting leaks for the new information. Before we got a massive amount of new Pokemon added.

Hey guys, I think an interesting evolution to see would be a Zebstrika one. Think of a gigantic zebra with a horn.

...Kind of like Ixion from FFX, if you will.

I guess it would be nice to see Zebstrika evolve, maybe he could even get a 2nd type?
So what do you guys think is more likely: GF to make some new pre-evos/evos for pokemon before the 5th Gen, or for Pokemon that were introduced in the 5th Gen?

Could it be a mix of both, perhaps? I don't see GF having a preference one way or the other, rather creating evolutions from older gens as well as just 5th gen. It's kind of like the direction that 4th Gen took: evolved Pokemon from both first gen as well as second generation (mostly first gen though, I feel).

Maybe they could finally show us the thing's feet; a Dugtrio mentioned that it had feet in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team.

By that vein, the male Pawn turns into a female Queen. That would be an interesting evolution...but it would be the strongest of all four.

Cyclone
Protoangous hermaphrodites do occur in nature, so this could be possible, especially since Bisharp, as insects, might be simple enough in biological terms as compared to more complex species to survive such a metemorphosis.

Please don't evolve Zebstrika. :( I can't imagine how much faster it'd be if it had an evolution, daym. Just seems like a final evolution to me!

But it'd be really cool, though! I mean granted it'd be fast yeah, I can't imagine it would be too overpowered, wouldn't it? xD

Not really overpowered, but not necessary. It already has great stats, great moves, great ability, so I don't thinkhat really needs t b eimproved upon.

Definitely pre-evos/evos for 5th gen pokemon, some gen 5 'mons really need an evolution such as Audino, Stunfisk, Heatmor, and I really want a Basculin evo. Besides, last gen (4) was all about uber evolutions. If they didn't do an evo for certain pokemon in gens 1 - 4, and they didn't do it for gen 5 then they are DEFINITELY not receiving an evo in gen 6. Evolutions for gen 5'ers just makes sense to me.
A Zebstrika evolution would be good to me, but only if it raises its attack and Hp stats. Darmanitan is a great pokemon because he has very good Hp and stunning attack, this means he can use flare blitz without fear of losing too much hp in recoil damage. I want Zebstrika to be like this. His attack is higher than his special attack, so wild charge is his best electric move. An improvement on its attack and Hp stats would be great.

Not that Munclax and Snorlax's evolutionary line is incomplete or anything (it makes some sort of cartoony sense that Munchlax could eat a ton and get as fat as Snorlax,) but do any of you guys think that other evolutionary chains could receive a mid-evolution? I was thinking about Vulpix/Ninetails, but there are probably some others as well. I do admit, however, that, if this change were to be implemented, that it would most likely cause some major problems: how would GameFreak design the games to account for this new twist to the evolution mechanism? I thought that maybe it could program these new evos such that they require players like us to use a combination of multiple, previously-used alternate-evolution mechanisms to obtain these new Pokémon through this kind of modified evolution mechanism if we wanted to use them. I assume that, otherwise, the normal rules of evolution could take precedence over these new ones somehow. But since its not likely that GameFreak would insert new members into the middle of evolution chains, maybe future evolutions of existing Pokémon could appear to players when they used more than one of the alt-evo methods that currently exist? For example, an Electric-type Pokémon could evolve into an Electric/Fire-type if it knew 'Spark' after a certain level and used it in battle while holding a piece of 'Charcoal,' which would then ignite and trigger a post-battle evolution. Or a Rock-type Pokémon could evolve into a Fire/Steel-type if it were holding 'Metal Coat' and was traded with a Pokémon holding 'Charcoal.' What do you guys think?
