Global PokÚdeX Plus Forums _ General PokÚmon _ Weird Evolutions

Posted by: VickyDragon Sep 11 2009, 04:31 AM

this question was posted on the forums in a pokemon union im in on Gamespot, so i thought why not ask the same question here
one evolution thats been on my mind would be Grimer evolving into Muk. there is no change, it just gets bigger. seriously people, theres plenty of evolutions, pick anything and say why you think its weird/makes no sense whatsoever

Posted by: RayquazaRocks Sep 11 2009, 05:03 AM

Feebas -->Milotic

That's really weird, first time i thought Feebas can't evolve.

Dragonair is so beautiful..... then it turns into dragonite -_-2.gif

How does something so beautiful become so....... ugly?

Posted by: draconitas Sep 11 2009, 05:31 AM

Electivire and Magmortar. Seriously, WHUT.

Posted by: Mr Blue Viperfish Sep 11 2009, 05:47 AM

Clampearl to Gorebyss or Huntail, seriously.

yea that evolution confuses me too, so once i get a Dragonite, i dont bother using it

Posted by: draconitas Sep 11 2009, 07:24 AM

Personally I didn't feel anything for the Dragonair -> Dragonite evo, either, until I saw the Mewtwo movie - the messenger Dragonite was 10 kinds of cute and awsome (zooooooom across the ocean!)

I will forever think that Magikarp -> Gyarados is the most awesome evo ever, from the legend of how the carp that, after much effort, manages to jump over the Dragon Gate evolves into a dragon itself.

Spoink to Grumpig, another one. I sometimes forget Grumpig even exists.

I remember seeing Nosepass evolve, and the first thing I thought was, Oh GOD, it got even uglier.

Posted by: Chatot Fanatic Sep 11 2009, 10:07 AM

Omg, seeing nosepass turn into Probopass makes me say wtf.
I mean how could they turn this thing uglier???

to be honest, if i knew Nosepass was gonna into to Probopass, it just shouldnt have been created, i wouldve just preffered Nosepass getting real moving arms and legs

Well remoraid turns into octillary. HOW I TURN FISH TO OCTOPUSS?!? Lol.

But seriously, remoraid turning into octillary is awesome so I can't complain.

Posted by: Pimpburger Sep 11 2009, 07:49 PM

My problem is not with the new eevees, it's with the new calls. all the other ones sounded similar, but they don't.

I don't understand the point of rhyperior.
It doesn't look like Rhyhorn, or Rhydon at all.
At least those two looked pretty much the same. >> It baffled me.

Rhyperior is a weird one and i just thought of another: Magnezone. how does three conjoined Magnemite (Magneton) evolve into that?

Posted by: Eliot Kovach Sep 13 2009, 05:20 AM

glameow > purugly

omg!!!!poor glameow to have such a weird and ugly evolution....

grovyle > sceptile

they dont even look same...

gloom > bellossom

i was like: O.o wtf...? but bellossom is cute so i dont complain...

venonat > venomoth

O.o

surskit > masquerain

oh...wow.....o.O

Posted by: Nizabeth Sep 13 2009, 12:14 PM

I really dislike Rhyperior and Magnezone. Rhydon and Magnemite are already completely awesome, why add more evolutions?

Posted by: Tsuna Sep 13 2009, 01:57 PM

Snorunts evos.

Can't really understand them :/

Posted by: Outsane Sep 13 2009, 02:40 PM

Okay, prepare for the list!

Magnezone
Mamoswine
Frosslass
Ryperior
Magmortar
Electivire
Probopass
Dragonite
Politoed
Purugly
Bellossm
Roserade
Gallade

Honestly, these all seem like pointless and useless evolutions to me. They all had perfectly good evolutions before, why do more need to be added?

Posted by: bella1000 Sep 13 2009, 07:13 PM

Corpish into crawdaunt.
It was cute...and then it turned UGLY!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Daxdiv Sep 13 2009, 09:33 PM

I still don't get how or why Eevee becomes Leafeon by leveling up near the Moss Rock in Eterna Forest. What's the point of the Leaf Stone then. Also how does Graveler into Golem is kind of wtf for me. Seriously it becomes this big rock, then becomes this rock turtle thing.

Posted by: laskuraska Sep 14 2009, 03:39 AM

grovyle.gif -> sceptile.gif

The first time I play a pokemon game, I like all the pokemon and evolutions to be a secret to me. When my Treeko evolved to Grovyle, I assumed it would become even more fast and graceful looking the next time it evolved.


Posted by: bella1000 Sep 16 2009, 04:10 PM

Goldeen into Seaking. It turns into a boy??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

Posted by: Ragnarode Sep 16 2009, 04:23 PM

I'm sure somebody has said this already, but I'm going with Magikarp to Gyarados.

The 4th gen evolutions of the 1st gen pokemon

wtf pinch.gif

Posted by: Zant Sep 17 2009, 12:10 PM

magikarp to gyaradous XD

Posted by: Lacesso Sep 17 2009, 02:15 PM

I'd like to see just one thread where people stop bashing the Gen4 evolutions of Gen1. We've all heard it, there's no need to repeat yourself....

Anyway, I don't really consider anything (well, nothing more wierd than a fish shooting electricity at you anyway lol).

I guess if I had to push the boat out I would say the Shroomish -> Breloom, I don't know why lol, it just sort of appears to grow a body arms and it's stubby little feet extend and grow feet and the shroomish himself just turns into a head/helmet.

Posted by: Lol King Sep 19 2009, 12:28 AM

Dragonair > Dragonite.

How can a blue dragon that has a snake like body evolve into a giant orange dragon with wings. I think Dragonite is cool but the jump from Dragonair to Dragonite is just, very weird.

Posted by: Reyo Sep 19 2009, 12:35 AM

I know the whole nosepass > probopass evo has been mentioned, but does anyone else think that Probopass looks like Mario?

larvitar->pupitar->tyrannitar


It goes from a cute little dinosaur/emo kid to a cacoon to the best pokemon ever.

Posted by: VickyDragon Oct 7 2009, 03:31 PM

yea, you look at Larvitar evolving into Pupitar and it reminds me of Bagon evolving in Shelgon then the awesome Salamence

Posted by: DojoManiac Oct 7 2009, 05:51 PM

I used to think that Dragonite was an evolution of Charizard...

Well, Dragonite looks like a mix of a Charizard, and that weird dino from the Mac and Cheese commercials...

Posted by: Elegant Flare Oct 7 2009, 09:16 PM

Prehaps Pineco to Foretress?

It's gone from a pinecone bug to a plated I don't even know what!

Posted by: The Brain Oct 7 2009, 09:44 PM

Not really an evolution, more of an offspring. Manaphy and Ditto giving 'birth' to Phione. HUH!?

Posted by: Fade Oct 8 2009, 02:30 AM

Seedot to Nuzleaf.

I mean really. its an ACORN.

Posted by: Xal Oct 8 2009, 02:48 AM

Pretty much every evolution added in later gens to first gen pokemon. There's a few exceptions, I quite like Pichu and a few others, but Rhyperior? Magnezone? The first gen was a completely different style to the rest, it can do without being butchered.

Posted by: BlueTurbo Oct 8 2009, 08:09 AM

Lombre into Ludicolo? How does it become a strange dancing duck thing.

Posted by: Alias Twiceborn Oct 10 2009, 03:26 PM

Piloswine to Mamoswine. It's not that I'm hating on those evolutions (Probopass is actually one of my favorite pokemon) But that mkaes no sense to me. It went from being a heavily furred boar-thing to a giant whatever you call it... o_O

Posted by: Musouka Oct 11 2009, 10:28 PM

Gloom -> Bellossom

How does something so ugly turn into that? And what's the point of Vileplume anymore? noes.gif

Posted by: silvenquesti Oct 12 2009, 08:57 PM

lickitung to lickilicky. just wtf?

Posted by: BlueAnubis Oct 12 2009, 09:05 PM

Trapinch, to Vibrava, to Flygon... What!?

Antlion evolves into dragonfly evolves into flying dragon? how does that work?

Posted by: xxEuphemia Oct 12 2009, 09:56 PM

Hoppip to Jumpluff (something like that). It was red...then it became this weird combination of blue and white >_>

Posted by: Envoy of Time Oct 13 2009, 09:01 AM

No offense to the makers but the farther they go into making new pokemon the worse they seem to get. Magnezone Mamoswine Frosslass Ryperior. I don't understand why they made them

Posted by: le50005 Dec 5 2009, 03:01 PM

Eevee's evolutions are a bit funny but I guess they can't really be categorized as weird

Posted by: Thornflame911 Dec 8 2009, 08:14 PM

gulpin to swalot

A green blob turns into a bigger purple blob.......I think the green blob ate a grimer and got sick.

Posted by: duder5000 Dec 8 2009, 08:38 PM

almost all 4th gen evos of 1-3 gen pokemon (not weavile, dusknoir or eeveelutions, but the eevee-evos have strange calls, before only espeon sounded different) shiny charmeleon to s charzard, i mean it turns from yellow to black, and surskit into that thing it turns into

Posted by: Nonpain Dec 10 2009, 02:32 AM

How the hell does tyrogue change into different pokemon and what the hell is hitmontop it is a fighter with a top spin

Posted by: Xiades Dec 10 2009, 04:16 AM

there are a lot of evolutions that make little to no sense to me, but the ones that just strike me as odd are some of the old Pokemon evolving..example, Jinx, Electebuzz, Magmar, and such...those made me wonder

But personally thing the oddest one is Togekiss....what the heck? As if Togetic wasn't weird enough

I also (and don't hate me) think Gallade is a bit out of place...

Posted by: Cal Dec 10 2009, 05:33 AM

Flaffy to Ampharos

It used to be a sheep... a sheared sheep but what's Ampharos supposed to be?

Posted by: Sadixe Dec 10 2009, 07:30 AM

Magmar turning into Magmortar. I mean seriously! Magby is a tiny fireduck, then it turns into a bigger fireduck, and then that fireduck turns into some kind of beaver with one of its hands replaced with a cannon. What really happened there?!?

Also I think they should have made Dragonairs evolution graceful instead of just.... really fat.... and yellow. Dragonair still counts as one of the most beautiful pokemon in my opinion.

Posted by: Chuxapik Dec 10 2009, 05:14 PM

There are a lot of evos I find weird:
Remoraid > Octillery
Clamperl > Huntail/Gorebyss
Snorunt > Glalie/Froslass
Magikarp > Gyarados (though it is indeed awesome)
Feebas > Milotic (though again, I <3 this)
Kirlia > Gallade
Dragonair > Dragonite
Gloom > Bellossom

Posted by: flario Dec 11 2009, 09:39 AM

Porygon to Porygon2.

How did a solid become a balloon

Posted by: Mile Dec 12 2009, 10:30 AM

Magnemite into Magneton or Diglett into Dugtrio. One becomes three...? Seriously, wtf?
And Remoraid into Octillery. Have you seen a fish grow a few limbs and change color?

Posted by: Chu Chu Dec 16 2009, 08:32 PM

id say eggxexecute (cant speel these two names) to exegutor cuz an egg turning into a coconut tree o.O and phione is cosidered the pre evolved form of manaphy yet it cant evolve into one

Posted by: Shiny Jumpluff Dec 16 2009, 11:11 PM

Probopass. Nosepass is a nose. Probopass is a larger nose, but with hair.
WHY?

Posted by: pucichu Dec 17 2009, 09:01 PM

The weirdest evo i seen is magikarp and gyarados. A useless fish turns into a Distructive Sea snake thing.WHAT THE HECK?!!!
Probobass? when i saw mamoswine i was like.. cool, but ugly. when i saw probobass, HOLY COW! ITS ITS...UUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, there is a story of a carp that climbed a waterfall under its own power, and the gods granted it the strength of a dragon. However, it abused this power, and the gods revoked its dragon status.

Hence the story of Magikarp and Gyarados, and why Gyarados is not a Dragon-type.

Electivire/Magmortar: POINTLESS EVOLUTIONS.

Posted by: Cabbage xx Dec 18 2009, 12:57 AM

Dragonair -> Dragonite.. Dragonite is slim, blue, and beautiful, and then it just... fails. Dragonite is just a random smiling yellow dragon that looks nothing like its prevos o.O

I also don't see how Feebas changes into Milotic, but hey, I love milotic so I wont complain xD

Posted by: MistahL Dec 18 2009, 01:56 AM

Poliwag -> Poliwhirl -> Poliwrath (turns into a bigger tadpole each time, why didn't they make Politoed the third evo. and just get rid of Poliwhirl or Poliwrath o.O)
Ralts -> Kirlia (emo boy to dancing teenager)
Togepi -> Togekiss (wtf)
Wartortle -> Blastoise ( a turtle with cannons)
Goldeen -> Seaking (gender-bender)
Nincada -> Shedinja (ninja ghost? o.O)
Nuzleaf -> Shiftry
Snorunt -> Glalie/Froslass
Barboach -> Whiscash
Chingling -> (a bell becomes a gumball machine with a tail)

Posted by: Binka Dec 18 2009, 09:40 PM

i'll have to say the Dragonair to Dragonite. they are just too different irritated.gif but Dragonite is kinda cute

Posted by: Nielzen Dec 31 2009, 05:08 AM

Seriously, Bidoof -> Bibarel evolution is the weirdest. Why? Bidoof is MORE handsome than Bibarel. xD

I think Magikarp->Gyaradoes I mean a weakling ppokemon that can barely attack int one of the best dragon pokemon ever!

Posted by: Thale Jan 1 2010, 02:50 AM

Feebas ----> Milotic. I mean, I love Milotic so, but it's just. . .odd.

Magikarp ---> Gyarados. A classic one, but still bizarre. Weak fish to giant water dragon?

Wartortle ---> Blastoise. Huh? Turtle with cannons?

Togepi ---> Togekiss. What the hell is Togekiss, anyway?

Posted by: Chu Chu Jan 2 2010, 12:13 AM

voltorb to electrode. it just gets bigger and turns upside down. whats the point?

Posted by: Cura Jan 5 2010, 08:31 PM

Dragonair to Dragonite.
Dratini to Dragonair is understandable, but Dragonite totally ruined Dragonair's beauty after evolution. And it changed colour too? O,o

Posted by: Dazmi Jan 5 2010, 08:42 PM

I'm not saying I don't like these, but they're just simply different from their previous form.

Dragonair --> Dragonite (lul, this hasn't been said on the topic before)
Feebas --> Miltoic (An ugly fish became something quite pretty)
Magmar --> Magmortar (Magmar was an ugly pokemon to being with, but it became something quite odd. Magmortar is one of my favorites happy.gif)
Haunter --> Genger (I found the whole evo line to be very different from another)
Togetic --> Togekiss (Togekiss is cute, but I don't know what it is)

Posted by: pokemonsterm Jan 6 2010, 01:21 AM

Kabuto-->Kabutops

What...! How did that happen?!

Magnemite--->Magneton---->Magnezone

How does a 13 lbs. flying piece of metal become 130 lbs. with three of it. And then... that happens.


Posted by: Synchronise Jan 6 2010, 10:46 AM

Magikarp --> Gyarados makes perfect sense if you know the reason WHY that evolution happens. It's based on a decently known story about a carp that climbed a waterfall, was given dragon status because of it, abused its new power, and thus had its power taken away.

Dragonair --> Dragonite bothers me. Because Dragonair is just SO much more beautiful than Dragonite.

And yes, Togekiss is weird. But I pose this:

Togepi --> Togetic --> Togekiss

THE WHOLE LINE IS BIZARRE. What the heck IS Togetic anyway?!

Furthermore, there is this evolution:

Trapinch --> Vibrava

An ant lion becomes a dragonfly? What? It makes no sense to me. I like Flygon and all, but his evolutionary line makes no sense. It makes about as much sense as Shelgon does in the Bagon line. (Shelgon is WEIRD yo.)

Posted by: Fourtales Jan 6 2010, 08:11 PM

Lickitung to Lickilicky. Wasn't so much of an evolution, was it? I think Lickilicky was unnecessary to begin with, but the way it looks, it could have been pulled off better as a baby form.

Its not ugly..whats weird is that it grew wings on its back, changed colour and grew limbs..

Posted by: Lunafox243 May 16 2016, 10:55 AM

My weirdest one is..

Snorunt into Froslass

Its evolution requires a dawn stone which is too bright and possibly a tad too warm for Snorunt and Froslass is an Ice/Ghost type pokemon...so..

During the evolution..Poor Snorunt died during the process... crying.gif

R.I.P Snorunt Welcome Froslass

I'm sure it's been mentioned, but how does a small fish turn into an octopus?
