    Have you ever noticed some pokemon when they evolved they are just larger versions of there previous form. Like voltorb and electrode, the johto starters, or ponyta and rapiddash.

    Like grimer to muk,or koffing to weezing(If growing a siamese twin beside you counts),or magnemite to magneton(sticking 3 magnemites together)...

    voltorb switches it's colors when it evolves. The johto starters do change. Chikorita changes color and it's spikes turn to leaves when it evolves then they turn to petals when bayleaf evolves and the top leag turns into antenae. Cyndaquil's fire moves to two places instead of one and it's snout disappears. Quilava's flame moves to it's shoulders and stands up right when it evolves. Totodile totally looks different when it evolves into croconaw and when croconaw evolves into feraligatr. Ponyta does get largers but so does it's mane and it gains a horn.

    They maintain similarities so that it's obvious the new Pokemon used to be the old one. When you examine it, it's obvious that Raichu used to be a Pikachu, and it's obvious that Rampardos used to be a Cranidos. When I first saw Remoraid and Octillery, I never would have guessd one evolved into the other, and when I did, I was seriously confused.

    Voltrob also gets a wicked set of perfect white teeth.

    Yup yup. Nintendo can't just go and make one Pokemon evolve into a completely different one. Imagine this - A Monkey Evolving into a Panda. That Makes sense. A Monkey evolving into a whale. Not much sense.

    That would be brillant!
    Evo's also carry on the traits and type of
    the pokemon it evloved from.

    If every evolution change was like Remoraid --> Octillery, then something would be wrong. It makes natural sense to have Pokemon in the same evolutionary line look similar.

    Of course, each evolution gains some uniqueness to distinguish it from its preevolution, even Magneton, who gains different techniques (Tri Attack).

    But isn't changing in subtle ways over time the very definition of 'evolution'? Not everything has to be as obscure as Remoraid-Octillery or Trapinch-Vibrava (I never really got that).

    Diglett --> Dugtrio and Magnemite --> Magneton come to mind. Each evolved form is just three of its previous form (even though Magneton has subtle differences).

    ^This.
    However, a note. Remoraid to Octilery is basically a gun evolving to a cannon. Ignore the fact that said 'gun' has fins, and said 'cannon' has tentacles. XD
    Trapinch is based off an Antlion. For one day of their lives, Antlions shed thier skins and turn into lovely dragonfly-like things. However, after the day's end, they die. ;_;
    Flygon is simply the natural evolution of the adult form of a mythical bug. It's just that simple.

    Grimer and Muk. They look way too similar.

    Mr. Joker keep calm & carry on

    I guess Cubone =\

    Kim62 The avatars suck.

    Yeah. I've noticed. But the ones you put aren't good examples.
    Clefairy > Clefable
    Poliwhirl > Poliwrath

    I thought they were the same Pokemon when I was a kid. XD

    I thought Octillery was a tank or a bazooka but I'm you could be right too.

    Flygon is just based on the nickname of the fully grown ant lion which is "sand dragon".

    ok so clefable's wings get more pronounced. I have issues with the poliwhirls thing. cubone to marowak is totally different because the skull gets fused to the head basically and the body looks different. The biggest difference between grimer and muk is that muk gets a lot wider while grimer seems narrow. I am surprised the pidgey line hasn't come up yet.

    I find it weird that people always bring up Pidgey, it's more unique then most of the other normal/flying Pokemon.

    well, the evolves cant be totally diffeerent, otherwise why not just make a brand new family?
