If you look at the leaked pokedex, you'll notice the overwhelming majority of the evolutionary lines are two stages. It's clear to me at least, that they are just slimming down on unnecessary c***. Honestly, does anyone care about the middle evos? Does Pangoro really need need a middle evo? Clawitzer? Avalugg? All these pokemon have competitive stats, so I'm not really seeing any loss.

There are 18 two stage lines in X/Y. If you stick a middle pokemon in the lines you have 90 new pokemon total. However, I applaud GF for trimming the fat.

I expected Clauncher and Skrelp to only have 1 evolution from the start. It's usually (Honedge, I hate you) pretty easy to tell how many stages a family will have. Honedge and Fletchling's lines were the only real surprises IMO. (Fletchinder kinda came out of nowhere, lol.)

Yeah I honestly thought Honedge was gonna be a non evolving poke.

Heliolisk screams middle stage.

Actually, you're wrong, TC. If you look at the number of unique families in X/Y, there are only 39.

Every other gen is way above that number.

Any way you wanna slice it, GameFreak copped this time.

Yeah, I expected Honedge to be standalone, then expected Doublade to not evolve. >.>
