    If castform ever did get an evolution, it could follow a similar trait to the suduwoodo idea above. It would be aesthetic though and his evolution would change his form to different cloud types depending on the weather.

    Problem with that is, well, Sudowoodo isn't a tree, he's made of rock. Why would a rock become a tree all of a sudden?

    Well, excu-use me, princess. I think people have made some valid points pointing to it being flying type. Honestly, we can't definitively say that it's a normal type. Or any type. In fact, it being normal type doesn't really make much sense to me, I'm afraid. Eevee was introduced in Gen 1 to give the player access to a strong pokemon of a type they may not have. That sort of continued in Gen II, when the player gets Eevee right around Morty's gym. Basically, what I'm trying to get at is that Eevee exists so that the player can try out using pokemon of many types in a really low risk environment, because despite the differences in the evolution tree, they all handle in a similar way (granted, some are offensively minded, some are defensive, some special some physical) but they all are versatile pokemon that can capitalize on diverse movepools. Not to mention that they're very popular, and will allow the player some experience using pokemon of the type of the eeveelution.

    For a while, I wasn't too keen on dark types (this is back in the early days of Gen IV, mind you). Don't ask me why, I liked how they looked, but I just couldn't get a handle on them. Then, I used Umbreon and saw how much of an absolute monster it could be and started giving other members of that type a chance. Eevee is a gateway pokemon that allows players a lot of choice on what type they want to work into their team at the moment of its evolution. Because yeah, it's a big conscious decision what Eevee turns into. I just don't see it turning into a normal type when the point of it is to introduce the player to other type options.

    but if he did evolve it would be because they introduce some huge new mechanics to existing weather
    in which case i would be excited for an evo for him

    Petrified wood. He could have been a tree at some point. Sudo = Psuedo. Just because he looks like a tree doesn't mean he is. He would still be a rock but mimic a mature tree still.

    ahhhh thank you for making this point
    it gives me more hope that sudowoodo will evolve into a grass/rock
    if he evolves at all but i really hope he does

    Well if you wanna get technical. Sudowoodo is actually Petrified Wood. But w.e.

    4 MORE WEATHER TYPES...

    Tornado - Creates a heavy wind that damages all non flying/dragon types (flying type, looks like big cloud)
    Thunderstorm - A combination of using Rain Dance, then another move that powers up all electric type moves, gives them a 100% hit rate, and higher critical hit ratio (electric type, lightning bold durrounded by a cloud in the centre)
    Meteor Shower - Increases the power of Rock Types, damages ground and fire types (rock, big rock)
    Sandstorm (not new) - Makes castform ground... why is this not there already?

    It's feasible. He's not one of my favorites but I would still like to see him become a tree. We can hope at least.

    I'm glad. Acid rain could work, damages all non-posion and steel pokemon, doube damage to grass and water.

    Acid rain could be a great weather addition for poison types. They do seem to need a little love after all.

    Well, I'm late to the party/haven't done a thing on here in years. But Ninfia, at least to me, could evolve through use of the Prism Scale. The colors are highly similar, maybe GF decided that items that only evolve one thing are pointless and want to branch out. Hope I haven't said something already mentioned. If I have, my bad, sorry for the annoyance.
    F/Cs:
    White ????-????-???? This is my main game
    Black ????-????-???? I am training all Unova Pokemon through this game, halfway through the Unova dex.

    Diamond: 4640-3678-4967
    Platinum: 3996-5119-3608
    SoulSilver: 2665-4954-5460
    HeartGold: ????-????-????

    I will gladly breed physical sweepers for people now that I have a real grasp of breeding. My Ditto, 31 IVs in Attack and Speed is great at its job, and I have yet to hear a complaint from it.

    Yeah not happening. If the method existed in the past it won't be used in the future unless its a simple trade Evo.

    Nope.

    It's more as the superhero rather than chess. The name in japanese is more revealing in the origin. It's Shogi, which is a similar yet different game.

    I think its both heroes and chess but mostly chess. Especially with names derived from the chess pieces: pawn and bishop.

    I always thought acid rain was a cool idea for weather! B)
    Currently not playing any Pokemon Games, you can check my Backloggery for games that I AM playing, if you're interested:



    If I'm playing a Pokemon game, I'll have my signature display the game I'm playing, current team, and badge number.

    You should know by now that English names are kinda misleading. I mean...Dark type. :/

    Yes, but it's more based on superheroes rather than chess pieces.

    That's why I want a classical chess Pokemon. An European one.

    the japanese names do suggest that bisharp and pawniard are in fact based on heroes
    next subject: should they get a branched evo?
    yes i think the idea of a branched evo is fantastic for king/queen
    king being defensive while queen is offensive

    No they don't. They refer to the blades on them.
