Why pre-evos are justified

#1SkoziPosted 2/23/2013 8:31:39 PM
They can be used to learn moves the evolved form cannot.
They can have abilities the evolved form does not. (ala riolu and prankster)
They can be used to link together evolutions. (ala cubone and khangaskan [sp?])

Some Pokemon don't need to be connected.

There, I just destroyed your reasons for pre-evos.

There's no reason they can't just put the move on as an egg move, tutor move or level-up move. But it's another way of doing things, and I don't really have a problem with it.

They can have abilities the evolved form does not. (ala riolu and prankster)

I don't see how this effects the evolved form. And Riolu is a bad example since it was introduced the same gen as its evolution, and as such, has no reason to be a baby.

This is a good reason, but the only time they've done it is with Tyrogue.


My own opinion on babies? They're a pointless marketing initiative, but their presence doesn't hurt anything.

I'll give you move tutors, but you missed the point of abilities, and some don't need connected doesn't mean others don't. So no, you didn't destroy my reasons.
Ex: It wouldn't make sense for a lucario to have prankster, but it makes sense for riolu to.

That is an incredibly stupid example. Try Tauros and Miltank.

Riolu is worse than Lucario and I doubt anyone wants it just for its ability.

Also they allow players to have access to a more powerful pokemon (say Magmar) earlier on in the game via their pre-evolutions.
