Talk:List of Pokémon with cross-generational evolutions

Sprites to official art?

Considering the switch from sprites to art in the evolution sections, should we use the art instead of sprites on this page as well? - 050294 (talk) 03:59, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

I think we should, for consistency's sake. - unsigned comment from WyndFox (talkcontribs)
Staff approved. I'm editing it now.--ForceFire 06:43, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Porygon Trivia

Sorry the wording might be a bit poor, but I definitely think it is note-worthy since no other Pokemon has ever had an evolution introduced that could evolve yet again in another generation. It might even be prudent to add this trivia to Porygon's page, but I'll see how it fairs here first. Swiftgallade46 (talk) 02:31, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Mega evolutions? + request

First post here. I feel like it's necessary that this page include mega-evolutions as well. Could someone (anyone), with more editing creds include the mega evolutions, like the Charizardites?

I've tried editing pages before, but usually mess up, and someone has to fix it for me, or they just erase my changes. - unsigned comment from Camelsnake (talkcontribs)

Bulbapedia does not consider Mega Evolutions to be the same thing as evolutions. The word "evolution" in their name is the only thing they have in common; they are totally different both in game function and in flavor text/lore. Mega Evolved Pokémon do not belong on this page.

Galar Evolutions

Its been about a few weeks since Sword and Shield came out, and was wondering if we could get this page edited to have the generation 8 pokemon that got evolutions via Galar forms - unsigned comment from Burgorton (talkcontribs)

It's already been updated. Only the ones that go from regular to regional forms should count, as they go from Gen I (or IV in Mime Jr.'s case) design to Gen VIII design, rather than Gen VIII to Gen VIII.--ForceFire 04:46, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
I think all regional forms should be included in this list even if we need to move the page to something like List of cross-generational evolution families. IMO, the Rattata family received new members in Generation VII just as much as the Exeggcute family did.--MisterE13 01:27, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
I don't think we should count Alolan forms and Galarian forms as new Pokémon. They have the same numbers as their original forms. Alolan Exeggutor is still a Kantonian Pokémon as far as the National Dex is concerned. And this page treating Galarian forms as Gen VIII Pokémon meant it excludes Obstagoon and Sirfetch'd, which were two advertised cross-generation evolutions for Sword and Shield. And besides, the methods of evolving these Pokémon into their Alolan and Galarian forms are the same methods as normal. Pikachu evolves into both kinds of Raichu with a Thunderstone. It just has to be in Alola to be the Psychic-type. Exeggcute evolves into Exeggutor with a Leaf Stone anywhere. It just gets a longer neck in Alola. Alolan Marowak has an extra requirement to be nighttime but I don't think that qualifies as a crossgen evolution. Weezing gets a new form in Galar, but Koffing evolves into it at level 35 the same as the Kantonian Weezing. These regional variants do not belong on this page unless they are the forms required to evolve into Obstagoon, Sirfetch'd, Mr. Rime and Cursola. SeanWheeler (talk) 04:40, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

The only problem with this is that Alolan Formes are still recognized as simply forms of the original pokemon, despite certain things such as different ways of evolution. Let's Go proves this by having all Alolan forms return since they are kanto pokemon. Galar Evolutions also do not have their own page, and it would be excessive not to put them on this page. - unsigned comment from Burgorton (talkcontribs)

(resetting indent)Yeah, we should just treat the Galar forms and Alolan forms as the original Pokémon. The black and white Zigzagoon that evolves into Obstagoon in Galar is still a Gen III Hoenn Pokémon in a new form. Obstagoon is a Gen VIII Galar Pokémon. That's a cross generational evolution.

Mr. Rime

Sure it evolves from a Galar Pokémon, but it still is a part of a crossgenerational family. That's like saying we should remove Oddish from this article because it evolves into a Kanto Pokémon. Mr. Daikon (talk) 05:29, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
