As the title says, What is your favourite method of evolving a pokemon
the criteria are :
-Level up- getting your pokemon to a certain level
-Evolution stones- Obvious
-Area level up- Like Glaceon and Leafeon, or Magnezone
-Trading (w/o item)- Like Gengar or Dusknoir
-Specific pokemon in party- Like Mantine
-Know certain move- Knowing a certain move to evolve- eg. Lickilicky
-The Feebas way- Max'ing a certain stat (beauty, cool,cute, tough, smart) and then leveling up
-The Tyrogue way- Certain stat at a particular level deciding which pokemon it will evolve into.
I like the " know certain move", because it puts the pokemon into a right place for evoulution via learning a move which is more suitable to its evo.
Post your favorite and why?
