What are all the evolution methods?
« on: April 16, 2017, 20:27 »
I know a few of the evolution methods, but I'd like to know all of them.

I know:
Level
Stone
Trade
Trade with item
Friendship
Friendship Day/Night

I started losing track of all the various evolution methods after Gen 2 lol.

Certain Pokemon can only be obtained by breeding. I know that some require incenses from Gen 3 onwards, but I don't know which incense is required for the specific Pokemon, nor do I know where to get the incenses to begin with.

While collecting Pokemon for my Pokedex in X/Y, which I mentioned I was going to do in another thread, I'm obviously going to struggle a little bit if I don't know how to evolve some of them.

Just how many evolution methods are there nowadays?

Tyrogue's evolution confuses me a bit.

I can never seem to get a Wurmple to evolve into a Silcoon, I always get Cascoon. Is there anything I can do to influence the evolution?

Turning the 3DS upside down for Inkay>Malamar is certainly a perculiar one! Just when do I need to turn it upside down exactly?

Wurmples evolution is based on its personality value, which cant be influenced or seen, so basically its totally random. But theyre common and they evolve at level 7, so its not like itll be hard to get the one you want. Just catch a bunch of wurmples in oras, keep on strong pokemon on your team, turn the exp share on and battle anything mid to late game. Theyll all evolve at once and youll get a silcoon in no time. Or alternatively you could just catch silcoon itself in the wild.

Not sure if you'd count Nincada--> Shedinja but evolve by level up with a spare slot in your party (and a poke ball in some games)

Oh, theres also shelmet and karrablast, which only evolve if you trade one for the other. And combee and salandit dont evolve at all if theyre not female. And rockruffs evolution depends on whether youre playing sun or moon.

Shellos evolves based on which side of the region you are on

No it doesn't. The forms aren't interchangeable and each version can only be found in Sinnoh and are different depending which side of Mt Coronet you are on.

There's evolution at a specific level while knowing a move or having a certain Pokemon in the party, leveling up with a certain amount of Affection and knowing a Fairy move, evolution at a certain level during the day, leveling up while holding an item during the night, leveling up at day or night depending on which version, and leveling up in rain.
