Stand Alone Pokemon - the way Pokemons with no evolutions are named (ex.: Farfetch'd, Ditto, Lapras). Many Pokemons were stand alone in a previous generation and thanks to the design of a new stage, are no longer stand alone Pokemons (ex.: Electabuzz, Magby, Jynx).
The question of the thread is... is it just me or anyone else also thinks that stand alone Pokemons were most common in the initial generations? Most specifically Gen I and II.
Anyone else also thinks that most of the current new Pokemons (since Gen III) are usually given an evo or a pre evolution in the same generation they're introduced?
And... stand alone Pokemons in this thread don't include Legendaries, because they're stand alone and probably will always be!
