View Full Version : The late evolution

As we all know, it takes a while for us to evolve our hero/partner in the PMD games... Especially in PMD2. I think it was better in PMD Red and Blue, where you evolved but still had a lot of the story left to do.

Why can't we evolve when we reach Level X/find a Thunderstone/Level up at Mt Coronet (uhm)? The only reason I can think of is that is that the flashbacks you're having troughout the game could be rather silly... Say that you had evolved your Mudkip when you discovered the Waterfall Cave. Maybe the game wouldn't be able to remember if it was a Mudkip or a Marshtomp? I don't know, hah

What do you think?

(First post, hah!)

It's because then they'd have to make more emotion faces for each starter/partner Pokemon, and with the Eeveelutions back it's a developers nightmare.
