I wish there was an "evolution guru" in these games

I'm a big proponent of not using any sort of guide on your first playthrough of a video game, so I'm not a big fan of how Pokémon has so many "Guide Dang It" evolution methods. I know we have Serebii and Bulbapedia and whatnot for this, but on the first playthrough it feels like cheating and I wish there was an NPC who you could show Pokémon to and he'd give you hints on how to make it evolve. Stuff like "just keep training it!" for level up mons, and other hints for the various evolution methods.

Yeah.

Especially with stuff like Inkay, anything with a Location or Trade&Item Evolution.

What I want to know is how did anyone figure out how to evolve Inkay, since nobody has hacked the game except one guy, and it was well known before that.

Yeah, I wish that they had carried over that feature from Black and White 2. In those, you can call Professor Juniper, and she'll tell you how to evolve a certain Pokemon in your party.

There were a few things that pointed towards or hinted at Inkay's method:

1. It's the 'revolving Pokemon'.
2. Malamar is definitely flipped over.
3. It flips while making a move in battle.
4. It's the only Pokemon to learn Topsy-Turvy.

What I can't figure is how they figured out which level it happened.

Inkay's evolution method was leaked in pre-release info, along with Pancham's.
