It's the only reason I can think as to why a Pokemon as forgettable as Chimecho got a pre-evolution, and why a Rhydon, a Pokemon that already has base 130 Attack and 120 Defense got an evolution. Or why Lickitung, a Pokemon that not many people care about, or even like, got an evolution.

Then there's the stuff like split evos for Kirlia and Snorunt.

What I'm saying is, Game Freak adds a lot of these unexpected evolutions, while completely ignoring the obvious stuff like Luvdisc, Farfetch'd, etc.

GameFreak probably just has a big wheel with every Pokemon that still has room for another form that they spin when deciding evos and pre-evos, and the Pokemon we really want evos/pre-evos for just haven't been fortunate enough for the wheel to land on them yet.

They gave a few pokemon evolutions that really needed it. Like Gligar, magmar, electabuzz, tangela and roselia.

That is true. Also Togetic.

But I agree.

In that case, crossing my fingers for a Skarmory evo.

And then eviolite Skarmory ravaged the metagame.

I summoned a baby to attract a lion. It didn't seem to work, so I tried a delicious baby.

Snorunt I agree with, but Kirlia makes sense.

It'd be nice to see Quagsire get an evo. The line itself is based off the axolotl, but an evo could be inspired from a different salamander--Chinese or Japanese giant salamander, anyone? Or the Eryops, despite being a completely different sort of amphibian.

I don't have much of a problem with seeing Quagsire in OU. Its silly face never fails to cheer me up. Not quite as cute as the animal it was based upon, but cute enough.
