i have to agree with Magmaruby, they do seem pretty fake for obvious reasons.
I wonder when we will finally see some official new pokemon...

    Hopefully this upcoming weekend. Maybe we'll get a new evolution considering we've gotten old mons new evolution and new forme, so I feel like we may be continuing the pattern of old gaining something new.

    I'm hoping we get an absol evolution though the chances of that for this issue aren't high but I can hope.

    I guess that makes sense, and i'm honestly looking forward to find out the backstory to mewtwo's new form...that's like the last thing i would have expected from X and Y.
    Absol is awesome, and an evo would be amazing, but as you already said, it's probably unlikely

      Does anyone want a Houndoom evolution? I beleive someone mentioned it a while back but someone didn't want to see it evolve, I was wondering if anyone else felt that way. Personally I wouldn't mind if Houndoom evolved, it just seems like a lot can be done with it. Of course that also presents the chance of messing it up.

      Houndoom seems pretty okay stat-wise...though I agree an evolution wouldn't really be that overpowered. Its base 110 Special attack could be Base 130, and it's base 90 attack could be Base 100, and that investment could come out of it's defenses (which, to be honest, it doesn't really need that much of anyway, it's pretty much a glass cannon here). Speed could also be increased to about 115 or so, allowing it to outspeed major threats that would ordinarily kill it.

      So it'd be like this:

      HP: 85 (I'm also guessing HP increases with evolution, but eh, thats not its primary purpose)
      Attack: 100
      Defense: 40
      Special Attack: 130
      Special Defense: 60
      Speed: 115

      Total: 530

      Or would that be a bit too much?

      Houndoom could use an evo, yeah. Something to make it match up better with Arcanine's 555 BST. I feel like the two of them are on similar footing in terms of concept so making them more equal would be nice. Even if the evo just offers more bulk (which could be explained by some bone-like armor in its design) that would be great. And possibly giving it Moonlight or Morning Sun.

      Houndoom is one of my favorite pokemon and I'd love to see it evolve!
      Giving him a stat buff wouldn't make him overpowered, so that'd be okay.
      And design-wise he could be inspired by Cerberus, which would be pretty cool :D

        Dunsparce needs an evolution to make it recognizable as snake pokemon.
        Since it has wings i'd say it would evolve into a normal-flying type and would gain a decent speed boost.
        Zangoose should also evolve. It screams for a defense boost and a normal-fighting dual type sounds reasonable.
        Seviper needs a defense boost to be able to perform so it should also evolve & add secondary steel type so it stays in balance with zangoose.
        Farfetch'd needs an evolution as well due to its sub par stats. A flying-fighting typing would fit it well (since it's a cool & crazy swordfighting bird).
        And lastly keckleon would also profit from a ground type evolution to fix it's bad defensive typing and also swap it's abillity for something like sturdy or multyscale.

        Stats for the evolutions:
        ----Dunsparce-----Zangoose------Seviper-----Farfetch'd-----Kecleon
        HP:---110----------90-------------90----------70-----------90
        ATT:--95----------120------------100---------95-----------100
        DEF:--95-----------80-------------90----------70-----------75
        SPA:--80-----------60------------100---------80------------65
        SPD:--80-----------80-------------75---------80-----------125
        SPE:--95-----------100------------75---------100-----------45

        Although I do agree on Dunsparce getting an evolution, I'd prefer it not to evolve into Normal/Flying. I mean, we already have a giant amount of them, and it's not exactly fantastic typing or anything. I'd personally like to see it stay a pure Normal type, but do give it more serpentine characteristics. Plus, It's already obnoxious with Serene Grace and all the paraflinching it can cause, so if it was a little faster with some more Attack it'd be fantastic =)

        Some of the originals are best left untouched, I would however like to see a couple of older generation Pokemon get some evolutions. Particularly Maractus, Sableye, Corsola, Chatot etc.

          I don't think many of the Pokemon from earlier gens will get an evo, I think the most likely evos for previous Pokemon will be in gens 4 and 5. But more likely gen 5 due to the tremendous number of evos and pre-evos in gen 4. I would love the following gen 5 Pokemon Audino, Basculin, Swoobat, Whimsicott, Maractus, Throh and Sawk, Durant, and some others to have an evo.

          I guess it would make sense to give Gen4 and Gen5 Pokemon some new evos, since they haven't really been touched yet. I just hope they don't go over board with it and just start giving ALL pokemon some evolution. As Suicune says, some are better left untouched

          I think it's safe to say that we will get a couple of Gen V evolutions, it's usually the way when a new generation comes along.

            I highly doubt gen 5 pokemon to get new evolutions. I still feel like the games aren't that old yet to have changes (it has only been like 3 years since their announcement and the generation ended so quickly. even some gen 3 didnt get evolutions or pre evos during gen 4)

            One thing i do have hopes for are evolutions from Generation 3.

            If anything I actually expect more Gen V evolutions than anything else. Unova was slated as a new beginning, similar to that of Kanto. When we arrived in Johto, we saw that a handful of Pokémon from Kanto were given evolutions. I'm sort of expecting the same kind of treatment here with the new region. Although I'd still love to see some choice favorites from previous regions get some evolutions, it's probably more unlikely that stuff from Gen V.

              I actually expect as much evolutions for gen 5 Pokemon this generation as gen 3 had in Gen 4. I feel gen 3 wasn't as widely added to as Kanto was in 2 and Johto was in 4. So I feel like things can still be done with Hoenn. Though Sinnoh may have the most as they haven't had a chance to get new evolution much like how Johto didn't receive evolutions until gen 4 (all it got in 3 was two pre evolutions) and they were a handful of them too.

                The only logical thing I can see is a split evolution that's suppose to be a physical version of Houndoom, because again, base stats exceeds 500. I know it's been rebuttaled numerous times whenever I bring it up, but I'm 100% guranteed that they won't do it again because of evolite, and there won't be 1st/2nd stage evolutions to Pokemon w/ BST 465+.

                I really don't see Houndoom getting an evolution really at all. It isn't really the stat aspect that makes me feel that way, it's just from an aesthetic point of view. I mean, I wouldn't mind it I suppose, but I guess I just don't want to see it happen, probably because I love Houndoom as it is =P

                I've been thinking about this for a few days now, and i still don't know what I'd prefer.
                I love Houndoom and his design, and i would hate for Nintendo to "mess him up" by giving him some meh evolution. On the other hand, a three-headed Cerberus would be AWESOME!! :D

                  Hm, i agree that the normal flying typing would be bad but i don't see why they would make it a pure normal type either, afterall it has wings already and i'd like to see those used. Every pokemon needs a way to counter its strehts so giving it a common weakness is a way to balance it (noone wants the dunsparce evo to become uber immediatley).
                  If they are going to make it an uber then ground/flying would be my guess.

                  I think aesthetics went out the window when Rhydon got an evolution.

                  This is so true and made me laugh so hard, i still can't stop!
                  But you are right, Rhydon's evo looks kinda weird, but i still like it
