He has returned.
packerdan said:So, when you think about what needs an evolution, think about whether or not it fits any of that criteria. Cyndaquil was winning battles without the need to evolve into a Quilava (which, for the record, is my favorite pokemon), so although it certaintly was deserved, it wasn't necessary. Chikorita, however, lost all the time, so in order for it to stay a decent member of the team, needed a saving grace, aka evolution.
You wanna bet if anything Chickorita was doing about the same as Cyndaquil even before it evolved, just because Cyndaquil had more gym wins over Chickorita/Bayleed does it mean it was better enough to not evolve, the way i look at it either one of them could've evolved during Jouto and why they went with Chickorita...i have no idea.
The only pokemon that has ever *needed* to evolve was Torkoal so that maybe the writers wouldn't give the poor guy the shaft every time he battled. Here's to hoping that D/P has a Torkoal evolution.
I can sort of agree with this one, cause after the way it got shafted in the Hoenn region it kinda needs an evolved form to be somewhat decent anymore.
SuperSonic said:-Cyndaquil would be cool as a quilava, but what I would like to see is not just to evolve during a battle, as it would take away from ash's ability as a trainer, but before a battle, have ash see the trouble in having a newly evolved pokemon and have ash and quilava stay up all night or something and rise to the occasion. Showing what a good trainer Ash is.
In my honest opinion Ash was done being a good trainer the day he released Charizard, but i don't really feel like getting into that. Sure he had his good moments in Hoenn but until he learns to combine Skill(most of his hoenn fights) with Power(Pretty much any match with Charizard/Snorlax/Heracross/ any OHKO fests) he's never gonna be a good trainer.
-Grovyle fits into the team pretty well now, and is a very good fighter, its not evolving for a while, and thats fine with me.
I disagree, he may seem like he fits, but recently he's been getting his butt kicked instead of the other way around, and i forgot who mentioned it but, someone was saying something about if Mudkip evolved which it did then soon Grovyle and Combusken probably will since the writers try to focus mor on them then Mudkip, and i don't know how many times i have to say this... i really hope it does evolve so that way Ash can finally have another Starter finally evolve to it's third form other than Charizard.
-Cacnea I dont think it will evolve. Same for manene.
Now what James needs is to catch more pokemon of reasonable ability.
Cacnea should evolve soon it's been getting stale lately.
-Marshtomp is fine
He needs Ludicolo back
I am GLAD Ludicolo is gone, play Colloseum or XD and i'm pretty sure your preception of it will change.
-Munchlax isn't going to evolve. Its actually pretty effective right now.
-Squirtle, as cool as a Wartortle might be, especially how they've been doing 2nd stages lately, its probably not going to happen.
-Bulbasaur same as Squirtle.
Agreed with you on her, but her combusken my need to evolve soon unless she catches some really powerful pokemon for her team.
