    honestly don't know how GameFreak cold expand on how to evolve Pokemon. It would be cool if there was a new way, but I can't think of any.

        Hope there's not any. Last time Gamefreak thought of something, it was "trade Karrablast for a Shelmet", which, well, sucked.

        Well actually, what I was thinking was trading a Pokémon like Pachirisu for a Emolga would make both of those Pokémon evolve into the same new evolution of the Pokémon, unlike how Karrablast evolves into Escavalier and Shelmet evolved into Accelgor in Black/White. Which was between two Pokémon, but this one I'm thinking about is just one evolution, no matter which way you trade Pachirisu for Emolga or Emolga for Pachirisu.

        In order for this to be done, there would need to be some sort of special item included. Otherwise what would be the reason they hadn't evolved in trade prior to these games?

        That said, I don't think I'm on board with the idea of two different Pokémon like Pachirisu and Emolga evolving into the same thing. I don't think there's much appeal there. It sort of makes the other Pokémon redundant in a way.

          How about having a Pokemon only evolve after battling a certain Pokemon? Or one that only evolves over water/while Surfing?

          I like the idea of a surfing evolution however I think underwater might be more likely as surfing world make it really easy :x

            Maybe a Pokemon can only evolve during a certain season or by defeating a certain pokemon, like it's natural rival.

            Evolving by defeating the natural rival would be interesting for Seviper and Zangoose, actually. I mean, each of them would thus have to evolve into something that'd beat the original. So poison/fighting, and ground/normal! And if that happened for other rivals that could be an interesting (though tiring) evolutionary method, just due to what can come from it really.

              Maybe in double battles, if two of a certain pokemon use an attack on eachother, they will fuse together - thus evolving into a new pokemon!
              I can imagine this working with three magnemites or two beldums!

              It could be a special attack, not really like any old attack, but something along the lines of "magnet fusion" "steel fusion" etc, depending on what fuses. Might be a little too complicated, though, given that you'd need double battles for it for the most part. :(

                It's not complicated! Just find dark grass (where two wild pokemon can appear at once) and you're good to go!

                Oh yeah true that would be easy to find. Maybe a singles version where if you face the opposing magnet and use said attack then after the battle you fuse and it duplicates so each trainer gets one, could be an extra twist I guess?

                  I don't imagine they'll do that kind of evolution. Maybe if it were party evolution. Like if you have pokemon X Pokemon Y the two will fuse after the two have equal Ev's and have leveled up...

                    It wouldn't be the first time they made a annoying evolution method (remember Feebas→Milotic pre gen V)

                      At least Feebas had a unique evolution method 9_9 Now it's basically, "You must have X item/X Pokemon and trade" and that's so overused...

                      I'm in favor of environment-based evolutions and moveset-based evolution. Those don't involve any continuity issues and allows ease-of-access for plenty of previous generational Pokemon to evolve.

                      I really just hope trade evolutions are kept to a minimal. I mean, I understand the need to include them to retain the whole "play with others" schtick, but it's somewhat of a chore.

                        Same here, hopefully we only get two or so trade evolutions. Unova didn't seem to have many actually the only one's I recall are Shelmet, and Karrablast. Hoenn also only had two I can think of those being Clamperl's evolutions. A repeat of Kanto and Sinnoh's trade number however is too much...

                        If we see a return of Pokeblock like treats we may see pokemon who evolve based on Cuteness, Toughness, Smartness, and/or Coolness as Feebas' original kind of evolution hasn't really been used beyond that.

                          You mean Johto, not Kanto. Johto had the second-largest number of trade evolutions, behind Sinnoh, if I'm not mistaken.

                          I'd like more condition-based evolutions like Feebas. Something along the lines of a mentally-dumb Pokemon evolving into a genius after achieving maximum "Smart".

                          Nononono not the condition evolutions :( I... never got a Milotic for the reason of sucking at pokeblocks so if there's stuff like that I'm going to have to wait years to get mons and oh my God I would prefer new trading-based evolution methods.

                            Someone mentioned weather, and I think that seems like a nice one. I can't really think of anything else that they could do that would cause a Pokemon's evolution, except more Pokemon that evolve by methods we already have (ahem feebas>milotic). /shrug.

                              There are more condition based Evolutions than Contest Conditions, such as Gender condition and Pokemon in party.

                              As for adding evolutions with pre-existing items, its not completely impossible. Only thing against it is existing Pokemon that could do that but not evolve before. Well I bring up Lickitung and Piloswine who both could learn the moves then needed for evolution in a generation prior to being able to evolve.

                              If not, then most likely we are getting more item based evolutions with trade. This would include brand new items to make Pokemon evolve.

                              As for two being becoming one evolution, I don't see it simply cause that's not really how evolution works. Generally you have one base that can branch out like all current branching evolutions. I haven't really heard of two separate creatures evolving into another. I don't think something like that would ever be done.

                                Gamefreak should make more gender-based evolutions, such as nidoking/queen, vespiquen and gallade.

                                So kinda like if they were in the same team, or a double team and just evolved together?? For gendered ones that does actually make sense imo.

                                  How about a Pokemon evolving by leveling up under a certain weather condition? I'm sure that a Pokemon like Sunkern for example would appreciate the rain/sun to help it to evolve into Sunflora.

                                  Other possibilities could be that a Pokemon can only evolve under a certain ability, although on second thought I'm not sure how this is going to work. It might possibly need up to three different evolutions depending on how many abilities the Pokemon has, to make sure that this idea works well.
