what are the odds of sylveon being the ONLY new real evolution for old pokemon?

i'd be completely dumbfounded if this turned out to be the case. none of the megas get a pokedex number, they're just kind of added on. they'll probably be added in the dex the same way alt forms are shown now. it would just be so strange that they added one and then no more. would make more sense if they didn't add any at all actually.

I'd like to think they will have some, but (while I had no problem with it) my perception is that the feedback from DP era was against evolving previous gen mons.

after that they went with BW with no prev gen evos

and now they seem to be trying a different approach to this idea without sacrificing dex numbers


they have also confirmed no Kalos mon gets mega evos, so currently it seems exclusively a gimmick to introduce evos to past gen mons

How many links did we have 3rd gen? Only one I can remember off the top of my head is Azurill. Hold on...

Looks like Wynaut is there too.
After looking, I suppose Snorunt/Glalie/Roselia/Duskull/Dusknoir/Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir/Chimecho links to 4th gen, but not til 4th gen comes out.

(I thought Snorut and Glalie with 4th gen Pokemon actually...)

For all we know, the new Pokemon that will be revealed very soon and is confirmed to be an evolved Pokemon may be tied to an older-gen Pokemon.

I don't know, but I can't say I would be totally surprised if that were the case.

I don't think gen 5 lacked evos because some people didn't like some of the gen 4 evos. I would say its because they were going for a 100% detached and exclusive region. The fact that Pikachu didn't appear in there is the biggest indicator of that.

I do get a feeling that Sylveon will be our only new evo this time however.

It will be a very stupid move if GameFreak doesn't add any and they're just trying to use the Mega-evolutions gimmick to replace them. I'm pretty sure people will be disappointed since they gave Eevee a new one but not the other Pokemons.

From my view, I think they're just trying to deliberately not give them any spotlight because they want all these new Kalos region Pokemon and the new features that will be introduced in their debut to be remembered. Looking back at Gen 4 was a hit, it was definitely a hit but some fans felt that it wasn't as memorable as Gen 3 and Gen 1 since the new pre-evo and evos got the spotlight over the newer Sinnoh Pokemon.
