Should they get rid of trade-exclusive evolutions?

By get rid of I mean provide a way to obtain the mons without needing to trade.

It was a neat idea in RB, but now it's just annoying as they add so many cool pokes that you can only get by trade-evolving.

For example, they could make it so that Kadabra evolves immediately upon trade but also evolves naturally at level 30 or even 40 somthing.

When the Tomb Raider reboot was released, the entire gaming community suddenly decided having a well-written MC was the only important aspect in a video game.

Yes.

It was a fun novelty back in gen 1, but now it's just sort of obnoxious. There was something else I was gonna say but I forgot.

I still hate that they took out the GTS glitch from gen 4 that let you do trade evolutions without trading.

Depends on your income

Yes if you're poor
No, if you're rich and/or a true Pokemon fan

Yes. I still have nightmares of being trolled by in-game trades for evos, like the haunter that holds an everstone -_-. Knowing i could never get those evo's back then because people that are willing to use link cables n' stuff, were kinda too far inbetween to find

The best course of action that doesn't completely change how the Pokemon evolves/retconning it so that it can also evolve when it reaches [x] level would be to introduce a Link Cable item that can be used like a evolutionary stone. Trading the Pokemon and evolving them normally would still work.

Implying that level 40+ evolutions are unusual.

Not really, especially since its all done online.

If I had wifi, I could simply get someone's friend code from here, and do it, no? Or use whatever the game itself has.

The whole gotta have a friend to do it thing with is over
