What evo's would you like to see in gen 5?

  1. Well from what I can gather, there would be quite a few different categories for Pokemon that should or could evolve in the 5th generation.

    Pokemon that NEED to evolve:
    DELIBIRD
    Farfetch'd
    Corsola
    Kecleon
    LUVDISC

    Pokemon that could use an evolution:
    Stantler
    Tropius
    Magcargo
    Drifblim
    Parasect

    Pokemon that would be a beast with one:
    Mr.Mime
    Sudowoodo
    Dugtrio
    Jynx

    But hey, that's just my meaningless, thoughtful, opinion.

    Based on lack of competitive status:
    Persian
    Farfetch'd
    Delibird
    Luvdisc
    Kecleon
    Castform(Although I guess it's jut kind of a novelty)(But then again, so was Porygon)
    Sunflora
    Chatot(I still like it though)
    Pachirisu
    Rotom

    Based on parellels:
    Dugtrio
    Dodrio
    (If Magneton was resolved, why not these two?)
    Weepinbell(To parellel Bellossom)(Should have been Carnivine)
    Banette(Why did Dusclops get one?)



    Pre-Evolutions:
    A split Tauros/Miltank
    A Kangaskhan pre-evo with a male counterpart for Kangaskhan

    A male Combee evolution.(Weaker than Vespiquen though)



    And more Eeveelutions!!

    Okay things in bold:
    Persian and Rotom, imo, don't lack a competitive status. Mixed Persian(with technician) and Spec Persian (limber) is very useful. Believe it or not Rotom is useful aswell. I sweep teams with this little guy, but of course it all depends on the team, moveset, strategy you're using. For me Persian is BL and Rotom UU but they both can make a good stand on OU. I agree about Castform being the new Porygon. Agree with the "parellels" and pre evolutions along with Khan's male counterpart. Good Stuff.
     
  4. pokemaster95

    pokemaster95 King of pirates

    A Tauros and Miltank evolution

    A tangrowth evolution
    A Hippodown evolution.

    Glaile and Frolass evolution.
    Mannectric and Mightyena evolution

    That's actually a really good idea for an evolution! The Pokemon itself isn't really going anywhere, and it'll continue the Pikachu-esque Pokemon tradition we see in every new installment.

    I would like to see only 12 or fewer evolutions in the next installment. Thought out ones that people have been wanting for a long time, starting with old school Pokemon.

    Weezing ---> Choking. It's that simple. Make it ugly and happy like Koffing.
    Muk ---> Amuk. Muk needs legs, and the more it resembles Muk, the better. Grimer doesn't stray to far from Muk's design, neither should an evolution. It would be even cooler if this thing had sort of a Golem feel, like a giant man made of sludge. But we really don't need another Muk, so meh...
    Rapidash ---> Charllima. Just simply to end the wanting of a Pegasus Pokemon. Fire/Flying, or at least levitate as it's ability.
    Ditto ---> Fauxto. It took me a long time to think up that name, but Ditto with a new look, ~37 base points tacked on to each stat, and 4 new EXCLUSIVE moves, would make it much more appealing. And it's not like Ditto isn't already a sexy beast with EVERY Pokemon wanting in on the action. But seriously, it wasn't usable then, and unless something is done to help, it wont be usable ever.

    The only Pokemon from GS that I think qualify for new evolutions are Xatu and Magcargo...

    Xatu because it's always been right there as far as usable but has never had that push to get it in BL or OU. Three feathers on it's head, and a little more elaboration on its body plan. Give it a permanent miracle eye ability and name it Zizatu, after the Ziz.
    Magcargo ---> Pyrolone. Basically a giant abalone of fire, continuing with the mollusk tradition. If they try to redeem Magcargo, it should be through a generous amount of base stat increases; it's typing is the WORST in the game, right next to Claydol and Exeggutor. They actually form an unholy triad of terrible typing.

    RS has the best Pokemon additions, IMO. But Sableye and Mawile both could use cool new evos, especially since Roselia and Nosepass were treated...

    Sableye ---> Sablespy. Not a very creative name, but going along with Sableye's guile and covert gestalt, another little darkling shrouded in shozoku wear. This could be another use for that reaper cloak that is without a doubt going to be obsolete come next installment. Give it the same stat amount as Spiritomb, or maybe a couple of points more. Also, a better ability than Stall, Stall sucks. Sableye's slow enough to pull off payback abusage. It really only needs Technician in the first place, especially if it's going to be ninja like.
    Mawile ---> whatever. Truly, I don't care for Mawile, and thinking up an evolution for it is not something I'm going to put effort into. But if the one gets more attention then the other, then we have to listen to people complain about it.

    And that's all I can think of. DP has some nice additions already, so it's not like we're desperate for new Pokemon anytime soon.

    Ditto's whole point is to be a gimmik pokemon that does one little cool thing but can't really be used for anything else. It already has the coolest ability in the game, IMO, what else does it need?

    I would like to see Sableye get an evo, and Mawile deserves one if it's counterpart gets one. IMO, Pinsir should get a metal coat evo. Jynx would be to bad, either.

    Victreebong Gives 'em the slip..

    I wish this topic were split up so there isn't 100 pages to read and try to discuss. Of the ones that I just wrote about, Magcargo is the most deserving of an evolution. He's basically been lagging and trying to fit in ever since his introduction.

    I'd like to see:

    Dunsparce
    Dugtrio
    Drifblim
    Dodrio
    A flying-type for Eevee
    Raticate
    Banette (It's only fair. D: )
    And Maybe Mightyena

    Edit: I agree, Sableye and Mawile would be nice

    Mightyena, Sharpedo, Sableye, Mawile, Pachirisu, Chatot.

    I like the idea of a metal-coat Pinser. That'd be awesome.

    I definitely see Ditto's point, but it's been that way for 10 years. 85 in every base stat is still very gimmicky, just ask Phione and Glalie. Even Wobbuffet got the opportunity to choose from 7 different moves, even though it's a gimmick Pokemon too. It'd still keep it's cool little niche, but just with a little variety. It's just a dream...

    I was going to be a pain about your ten year statement and point out a bunch of things from RBY that people don't conplain about not evolving; then I realized there are none. (facepalm)

    Anyway, another problem I have with Ditto evolving is just the nicety of having some things that Nintendo can't ruin. (Magneton much?) I suppose a Ditto evo could work, but I don't quite believe I trust Nintendo enough to to ruin it... If they'd put a little work into it, I suppose I wouldn't mind it, but...

    Not to be cruel, but I would like to know how you consider Glaile a gimmick.

    i would like to see a gyarados evo but i know that will never happen because gyarados already has amazing stats

    Frankly no more Pokemon need to evolve seeing as they made horrible evolutions as it is. Probopass? It might as well be the 80's pornstar Pokemon...

    I came up with an idea of luvdisc (whom i hate). I was thinking it could be another move evolution. Essentially my idea is that if it knows return then it'll evolve into something fitting for luvdisc and one that looks...loveable. If it knows frustration then it turns into some horrible evil looking thing that is just the opposite of what luvdisc is like. If it knows both then its evolves into some middle of the road pokemon. Doubt it'll ever happen but I think it would turn a generally crappy pokemon into something unique and useful. Of course it would need to have some sort of hold item requirement or location evolution requirement since luvdisc already learns those 2 moves.

    I have an idea for what Nintendo could do to Dugtrio. Sadly, the caption to a picture of it would be "Bwar! I am a hideous monstrosity and you will never use Dugtrio again, just like Magneton!" I don't trust them with Dugtrio. It's too cool, with the slashing and cutting without hands or claws.

    Drifblim needs an evolution. It would be a ghost-bird-blimp thing. Why? Because I want to have a pokemon that's a blimp, that's why. Blimps are awesome. Zepplim or something. It doesn't matter, as long as it's a blimp. A blimp that drags small children into the underworld.

    Oh man, you know, there's this Pokemon from first generation that is in desperate need of an evolution. I mean, you guys probably don't even remember it. It was kind of like Vulpix. I think its name was something like Eevee. Man. That thing deserves an evolution...
    ;133; ;134; ;135; ;136; ;196; ;197; ;470; ;471;

    All kidding aside, it would be nice to have an Eevee pre-evolution, or perhaps a non-radioactivity triggered evolution for Eevee. They'll get around to it eventually.

    They'll have to start adding new types just so they have an excuse to give Eevee more evolutions.

    I'd like to see an evolution for Pinsir, simply to give Nintendo a chance to make it less ugly.

    Shedinja could be possibly cool.

    I've always been an Ariados fan, so maybe giving it the steel-type they gave Scyther would be nice. Then again, Scizor kind of failed at making Scyther cooler. Totally failed.

    Sandslash getting an evolution would be awesome. It's my favorite from the original 150.

    Kangaskan-I think an evolution is over-do for a while now.

    Also, maybe some eevee evolutions so all types are filled
