I actually think its a brilliant way to make old pokemon fresh again. If the evolution was permanent nothing would stop them from having pokemon evolve 5 times or watever, this is a much better solution.
Also think it might work as a comeback mechanic.

The only overwhelming negativity I've seen is on the official Pokemon facebook page, and that's mostly consisting of "fans" who played one or two games and say they're part of the fanbase. --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam.

I would be the same as when I saw them now.
*Sees picture* *Sees description* "Oh, cool."
Then move on and go "Ooooh! Babies now? Eggs?! AWESOME!" because I'm more interested in the new stuff and was never all WOW to new evolutions. --- GT: Ayumi Spender || PS0: 4597 9585 4793 Only talk to me when I order you to. 3DS: 2921 9091 2567

As a kid "Awesome!!", I'd probably take anything in Pokemon without question Now "Hmm... pretty cool but there's some things i'm not sure about", still accepting but now I question a lot about the mechanic.

I would've reacted exactly as I am now.
"OOH MEGAAMPHAROS... oh wait, it's a temporary "evo" that goes away after the battle? :("
