Everyone is in speculation about the evos of the new starters. Fire/Psychic, Water/Fighting, Grass/Dark, Grass/Fighting, Fire/Fighting, Water Flying, etc. What if in this generation the starters have branch evolutions like Ralts and Wurmple? I mean what if their evos depend on moves learned, stones, gender, etc.
I.E. Train Froakie to level 14 and let it learn <insert new fighting move> and it will evolve into it's Water/Fighting second stage.
Train Froakie to level 16 and let it learn <insert new flying move> and it will evolve into it's Water/Flying second stage
Level up Chespin pass level 15 at night to evolve into Grass/Dark
Level up Chespin to level 15 and defeat 3 additional Pokemon(wild or trainer) without fainting to evolve into Grass/ Fighting
Male Fennekin evolves into Fire/Fighting, Female Fennekin into Fire/Psychic
High attack by level 16= Fire/Fighting OR High SP. ATTACK by level 16= Fire Psychic.
Also their stats and movepools change according to the evolution branch they take. The same can be applied to older Pokemon.
We don't really need a crap load of new Pokemon in fact I'm content with the five we've seen. The rest can be alternate branches for existing Pokemon across the last five regions. Especially the ones in need of evolutions. I would welcome this idea.
Also those above are just examples. You could think of or post other ways the starters or existing Pokemon can evolve on different evolutionary branches. This topic has great potential please don't ruin it.
Bump/ Just noticing how often topics like this sink down the list while troll topics and topics about things already discussed remain on top (I.E> These games r cool, the starters are gonna be water/fire/grass, whats your favorite starter, generation, etc. <those kind of topics)
This is the best opportunity to discuss something interesting I've seen on these boards since they were made. But don't mind it I guess you can go back to your "Whats ur favorite region topics" /rant.
