Yo, D911. Long time no see. I took a break from Serebii and the rest of the internet for a bit (not that I was active anyway), and I was sad to see that I missed out on the last Caption Contest. Hope there will be another one.
1st Gen: Leveling up, trading, elemental stones.
2nd Gen: Leveling up with happiness (with some depending on time of day), trading with item.
3rd Gen: In the sole case of Shedinja, evolving a Nincada with an empty slot in your party. Edit: And Feebas evolving into Milotic based on its Beauty...
Why is everyone saying that this Pokemon has to evolve in some complicated way? Whatever happened to good ol' leveling up?
Also, I don't think anyone's mentioned this yet (I haven't looked through every single page since the leak): Zoroastrianism was the first religion with two definite forces...
Personally, I'm hoping it will be the final evolution of the fire starter, just so Ash can use Charizard again. I mean, do you really expect Ash to beat the "Pokemon Champion" with the Pokemon he has now?
