Do you ever play through and not evolve your Pokemon to their final forms?

Do you ever play through and not evolve your in-game main Pokemon to their final forms?

I've only ever done this once, in White I never evolved Ducklett to Swanna because I don't like how Swanna looks and I like Ducklett's aesthetic.

Thinking about starting my X version over and going through with a team where some of the Pokemon aren't fully evolved.

Squirtle, Swirlix, Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Trapinch and Muk.

Just want to hear thoughts.

Only Vigoroth. SR as soon as it evolved the first time.

Nope. Even if I cared about the appearances of my Pokemon, it would be extremely annoying to halt the evolution after every level, in most cases. I'm not going to sacrifice stats and a hold item slot (for an everstone) just because I like the way a pre-evolution looks (which I almost never do anyway).

I had a Kadabra all throughout Gen I, because I never had friends to trade with for an Alakazam. :(

I have a Bulbasaur from Leafgreen that I've held onto since 2005ish that has held an Everstone since that game (though I had to put a new one on him in Gen V since I left it behind.) He is level 71.

I kept him because Bulbasaur is my favorite Pokémon and I don't care for Ivysaur or Venusaur.

I used an unevolved Onix with Eviolite in my most recent XY playthrough, despite having the option to evolve it to Steelix. It wasn't great (45 attack is horrible), but it did wall a ton of stuff and give me opportunities to Potion spam.
