This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciated starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig. Started by Dax-360
Both Totodile and Oshawott are comic relief pokemon.Oshawott on the other hand had a much worse treatment in terms of battles in comparison with Ash's past Water types (except maybe Totodile). The last major battle it took part in was the 6th gym and lost to a Palpitoad.
1. In-game evolved Pokémon (for the most part) are stronger than unevolved Pokémon, and some are far more powerful.
2. Personality or not, some Pokémon on the team for a long period of time are stale. Only evolution or new Pokémon can help a Pokémon team from being stale. New Moves, really good, unique new moves only add a hint of fresh air.
3. A lot more stories can be written for character development if evolution is an option. There's only so many believable obstacles that can stand in the way of a character's growth before those obstacles become more of a hindrance than actually helping the character to grow.
4. Evolutions are exciting, and seeing a Pokémon evolve into a different creature with a probable different battling/fighting style, has a lot of appeal.
Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
Meh, the writers have to give the fan girls who watch the show something don't they...blame them for liking cute tiny pokemon.

Evolution =\= Personality. Ash has had plenty of Pokemon who evolved yet retained their personality. Charizard, Bayleef, Sceptile, Gliscor, and Krookodile all come to mind. It's all about development. And in the course of development, evolution might or might not be needed. Corphish, Buizel, and Snivy have all had extensive development yet remained unevolved. Because it's not necessary. I never understood the importance fans place on evolution just because evolved Pokemon are stronger in the games. The anime has made it clear since the OS that evolution isn't everything when determining strength. You'd think the accomplishments of Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, even Meowth would have silenced this controversey.

Also, I wish that they'd address why Pokemon like Squirtle, Corphish and Oshawott haven't evolved unlike with Bulbasaur and Piplup. They had more legit reasons. Yet for others it's like, "They have evolved forms?!"

You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!
Maybe it wasn't by choice. Whatever it is that triggers an evolution since levels do not exist (in the anime), its possible those pokemon just never experienced it (yet).Also, I wish that they'd address why Pokemon like Squirtle, Corphish and Oshawott haven't evolved unlike with Bulbasaur and Piplup.

To me evolution can also enhance the personality of the respective Pokemon.

I like it how it is now, balanced. We get both and how's to say Oshawott isn't strong? Evolution isn't everything.
Well in the anime that is.I like it just the way it is.
Ash: Now I choose you!
There's a difference here between wanting evolution and knowing something has grown stale despite having personality. I may have growth up with the anime, but to this day I still think they screwed up by not evolving Bulbasaur... Squirtle will forever have a legitimate reason, but Bulbasaur's was pathetic. I get it, evolution doesn't mean much in this show, but at least it makes something interesting again. Going by all the posters here that say that personality beats out evolution, they sure must believe Sinnoh was done horribly as Turtwig, Chimchar, Gligar, Buizel, and even Staravia all had personality and of those, only Buizel failed to evolve.

Joltik when we are talking about personality we are actually talking about pokemon that stand out personality wise.
Like I said Infernape had no personality trait besides going berserk, Turtwig was a Bulbasaur clone but with time he seemed to lose that, Staravia didn't have anything going for him...
The only charismatic pokemon that evolved out of those was Gligar, Buizel was the second most charismatic pokemon in the Sinnoh team and unfortunatly didn't evolve, even though him being Sceptile in terms of personality and being competitive would amke sense for him to evolve.
But yeah other charismatic pokemon have evolved, Krokoodile being the most recent example.
personality does not have to be lost with evolution....scraggy can evolve and still keep his headstrong attitude, maybe he will want to battle more if he evolves, i can also see snivy evolving and keeping her mysteriousness
palpitoad can also evolve and keep his rowdy/bossy attitude and can actually become a powerhouse.
the only one that would probably change personality is oshawott, maybe would stop trying to be cute and be more mature and battle more.
