Because the Nidos and their evolutions are different pokemon. The Frillish and Jellicent, while they have their differences visually, are still the same pokemon.

Other Pokemon have differences visually but do they get two entries? Do they? I really don't know.

Why don't they give the Pringles couple different stats?

They should reorganize and revamp the Pokedex to group families and correct gen 1 mistakes imo.

More of a Pokemon fan than TherianReturns will ever be.
Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

They are just like Frillish. They are ultimately the same Pokemon, so no. The Nidorans evolve into different Pokemon, have different weights, heights, stats, and Pokedex numbers. They are considered different Pokemon.
