Beartic and Ursaring should evolve into the same Pokemon.

Digimon much? Also this would make a big difference in what moves pokemon can learn. I hate the ideal.

To everyone in this topic.. NO!!

2 Pokemon evolving into the same (not fusion) Pokemon = stupid idea...

1 Pokemon evolving into two different Pokemon (not at same time) = good idea..

That'd be like turning a television and fridge into two of same product, using only what the device currently has... doesn't make sense...

Two similar Pokemon evolving into one Pokemon is a perfectly fine idea. It enhances multiple breeds at once to an idea where they never have to fully commit to because branching evolutions exist. It's also a chance to increase the mythos of two breeds or to even reflect the very real reality that some creatures have evolved by irregular breeding outside of species, such as Polar Bears current trend in breeding with Brown and Black Bears. It may not make the most sense, but the part by part evolution of species is hardly a real world mechanic.

Plus, a TV has been put in fridges. Different pieces aside.

I like how you include 'not fusion' as a caveat as if fusion is a good idea, when that's genuinely the worst idea you could present.

I was kind of thinking the same thing, even without the de-evolution...

Actually i got the idea from playing Fire Emblem lol. I wasn't aware that Digimon had branching families (had to look that up)

As for those criticizing the move sets of branched pokemon, like i said before, only compatible moves would carry over (much like breeding). It's not like a Magnemite would branch off into a Machamp and the Machamp would carry over Thunderbolt, Flash Cannon, Magnet Rise, and Explosion. Branching pokemon families would obviously have somewhat similar level up moves (like Poochyena and Houndour)
