Evolution question

#1Zeldafan77Posted 9/23/2012 5:44:05 PM
Is it worthwhile to evolve Yoshimoto's (a warlord) Pineco into Foretress? I mean before I beat the main story I probably should, but until then... I just don't find Gyro Ball all that useful.

What about characters with Pokemon like Flaafy and Luxio, although Thunder is a lot more powerful, it has a horrid range compared to Discharge or Thunderbolt.

Is there an item like an Everstone or a feature to temporarily disable evolution on a Pokemon so it can still hold something else?

Don't use Flaafy/Ampharos on Hanbei. Use Raichu. That's his
100% link.

You'll have to evolve it eventually if you want to get his PL Data in the Gallery. Yeah, Gyro Ball sucks, I ended up giving him Scolipede, Galvantula, Empoleon, and later a Scizor. I might give him a Volcarona as well. Probably more than needed, but oh well.

And no, there's no item that prevents evolution, but you could always just say no when it starts to happen.

Flaffy and Luxio are weak, though. If you like their attack that bad Zebrastrika is a better choice (although you can't get that in the main game)

Galvantula also has that same move.

personally, I tend to keep both the evolved and unevolved forms of their Best Link (basically, anything that can be displayed alongside the character's portrait). Yeah, you need to evolve a Forretress if you want to complete his gallery information, but there's nothing saying you can't still keep a Pineco around for him as well.

I really think it should've gotten Signal Beam, though. The variety between Electric-types is terrible.

Thing is Galvantula is also part Bug, which doesn't help it so much.

That, and it can't get Sprint like Zebrastrika can.
