I had no idea that Trapinch evolved into Vibrava

It just blew my mind, because I am a pretty big fan of Pokemon. (Only since like Crystal) How did I not know this?

Because you clearly don't like Flygon sufficiently to be considered a normal person.

Probably because it's one of the most random evolutions in the entire series. Nobody really ever bothered with Trapinch in Ruby/Sapphire (I finally did in Emerald, since I figured out that Trapinch eventually becomes Flygon.) Yeah, it's a random evolution that might surprise someone if they've never used that Pokemon.

It's not random. Trapinch is based on the antlion, which gradually mature into winged forms where they from looking like ants (give or take) and more like dragonflies.

I didn't even know that antlions did that. I learn something new every day.

Doesn't tranpich had the same attack as Flygon? That will make a Tranpich with Eviolite, superior to vibraba right?

Trapinch has a speed stat so incredibly awful that Slowpoke, a Pokemon that was named for it's incredible lack of speed, leaves it crying in the dust. Pokemon like Silcoon, who lack any apparent means of moving at all, can move an incredible amount faster than Trapinch. In Trick Room, the only two Pokemon that could possibly outrun Trapinch are Munchlax, a baby Pokemon, and Shuckle, a Pokemon who's gimmick is having insanely awful stats everywhere except for it's defences. Even with Eviolite, Trapinch still has rather ****ty defences. Eviolite Trapinch is just generally a terrible idea all-around.
