I honestly can't figure out what's what in that picture. It is so ridiculously complicated and out of control. But yeah, I wouldn't want to see an evolution for Zebstrika, it's already fine in my opinion.

Perhaps this would help?

Spoiler:


(warning, it is quite a big image).

I mean, it'd make for a pretty badass third evolution, even if it didn't look exactly like that!

    I want a Zebstrika evolution too.
    On the topic of Equids how about a final evolution to Rapidash?

    Rapidash is a pretty poweful Pokemon on it's own, buuuuut I see no specific reason as to why it shouldn't have an evo! As long as it doesn't have drought or anything like that, it should be fine. xD

    Okay, that helped. The orientation of the first one just was screwed up, especially how it's head was positioned. But still, I don't really feel like Zebstrika needs an evolution, unless it left it's base speed the same, or decreased it in exchange for power sort of like Magneton to Magnezone.

    Rapidish I'm pretty much in the same boat for =P

      I'm not at all sure on whether it should get one or not, but the Kirin from Monster Hunter looks like a pretty good evo for Zebstrika...

      Rapidash doesn't need an evolution and if it had Chlorophyll well, welcome to Ubers... :x

        A Rapidash with chlorophyll?! That'll make no sense what so ever...
        And while people whine that X doesn't need an evolution because it's too powerful, that won't stop GF from making one if they want. Same goes for them chosing not to give evolutions to weaker Pokémon. These are just suggestions. Plus a Pegasus Rapidash with Fire/Flying imo will easy balance itself out due to that typing taking major damage from stealth rock.

        Alcohol and speculation don't mix Nica. I really don't think it needs an evolution anyway, it's pretty strong.

        I feel that this would make the most sense, balancing things out. Giving it a Rock/Electric weakness and losing it's ice resistance would be well-thought out way to off-set the new Rapidash evo. It might be strong physically and it would have ridiculous speed, but by no means would it be too overpowered.

        Unless! There's a fire type speed increasing move in the sun ;) But in general Rapidash is still really powerful, and in sun it's good enough for OU even, and I think giving it an evolution would make it too strong, unless it was specially-based.

          How about a evolution for Granbull that's Dark or Normal/Dark (I think plain old Dark would be better as having N/D,would give it a 4x weakness against fighting). I feel like Johto's Pokémon would have some interesting evolutions, and sure gen 4 gave them some but a few more would be good. Also an evolution for Loppuny that is Fighting, and Carnivine having one that is Grass/Dark. Also a Purugly evolution based on beauty where it regains it's majestic look, and is Dark type.

          I'd love to see one for Granbull actually. I always thought it had a Dark type appearance to it, so giving a third evolution and giving it either that second typing or just a total type change would be great. Same goes for Carnivine actually.

            I also feel like Mawhile should have been part Dark type, hopefully if they do make an evolution for Mawhile they'll make it part Dark.

            Gen IV gave several classical favorites evolutions, I wonder if this generation will do that beyond just Eevee.
            A thought just occured to me, what if this generation will only have one or two evolutions...in other words pull a generation 3 on us (only 3 had pre-evos)...

            I agree with Mawile! However that'd greatly increase it's fighting weakness, and while it has intimidate it doesn't really make too much of a difference, and if the evolution has that, well, ya. :(

            They may be able to come up with a way to balance it out though. A rapidash evolution would be nice but it isn't necessary even though i would love to have a gray Pegasus( i have a shiny rapidash) and it would just be cool either way. I also would like to see a stantler and castform evolution they are cool normal types but not that strong. Also maractus and chatot should get one.

            Granbull getting an evo would be really nice. He's definitely in need of one. His attack is already 120 though which makes me wonder exactly what would happen to him to make him better. Giving him a Dark secondary typing would be a nice start for sure by giving him that alternate STAB. Maybe increasing his SpD and Speed would help a lot. He already has Intimidate for his Defensive needs, but he's severely lacking in Special Defense. A boost to his Speed would be great for abusing Quick Feet a bit better. Doubling a base 45 speed doesn't necessarily seems worth the Toxic Orb drawbacks.

            I can definitely see him getting one, but it's very possible he wont' because I view him as an often overlooked pokemon.

            It would be.....quite interesting to see a Sudowoodo evo.

            Just saying, here. xD;

              This might sound weird, but, what if there was a side evolution, and a pre-evolution for Kangaskhan?

              Like, you know... a child, a mother, and a father?

                You all realize that Rapidash's BST is only 500, right? With a Base Speed of 105?

                And Zebstrika has a BST of 499, with a Base 116 Speed?

                Both have 100 in Attack and 80 in Sp. Atk with rather frail defenses on both sides and unremarkable HP. They could certainly benefit from evolutions. Something like:

                Rapidash Evolution:
                HP: 75
                Atk: 80
                Def: 75
                Sp.Atk: 120
                Sp.Def: 80
                Speed: 120
                BST: 550

                Higher Sp.Atk in exchange for Attack and slightly better Defenses with a much higher Speed.

                Zebstrika Evolution:
                HP: 75
                Attack: 120
                Def: 85
                Sp.Atk: 80
                Sp.Def: 70
                Speed: 120
                BST: 550

                Reverse Rapidash, basically.

                The two would essentially be glass cannons in OU, but they'd be viable.

                  I don't really understand the need for pre-evolutions. I could understand a very small amount of the current Pokemon getting pre-evos, but really, they are quite useless in my opinion. If we are going to get new pokemon it should contribute to the game. I just feel like pre-evos would be a waste. It gets old quick, they evolve to the same old thing, it's just quite boring. That's my view of it anyways.

                  I would appreciate evolutions for the following Pokemon though..
                  - Sunflora
                  - Corsola
                  - Kricketune (I think they could pull off something amazing with this, and I hope to god they do, because most people forget this thing exists!)
                  - Lumineon
                  - Mawile
                  - Banette

                  These are the type of Pokemon I want to see evolutions from. Ones that need it. Not Pokemon that are already easily strong enough on their own. It's team for the ones we forget about all to much to get some love.

                    I'd quite like a Skarmory evolution, sure its defences are amazing but it needs more attack power, 80 base stat wise just doesn't cut it.

                    You know, you bring up a good point with this. .___. I mean, pre-evolutions at the most are just....interesting? But they don't really serve any real purpose otherwise unless you're playing Little Cup competitive, or perhaps building an NFE team, things of that nature, y'know? I like the concept of having pre-evolutions, but really, I'm hoping there's at least not more than a few Pokemon here and there this generation that get them.

                      Then again, remember that pre-evolutions = pokemon that can use evolite, so that can be something worth investing!

                      That was where the whole "possible evolution of Skarmory" debate sort of started.
