    It's not about the excitement. It's about being fair. Making it possible for Pokémon to evolve mid-battle will usher in a whole new type of battle tactic involving near-evolved pokémon. And I think that tactic will be all too easy to abuse and significantly lower the strategy aspect. So, no; I like my battles exciting and stimulating.

    Not only that, u should gain exp from each attack, and when u KO the pokemon, u don't get any. ( because you already have Exp )
    Please call me LT, not XX or whatever. Thanks.

    The last thing we need is for the games to become more like the anime.

    So, not just "no," but "heck no."

    I don't see how mid battle evolutions would be hard to program characters change stats and forms (and easy freaking HIT BOXES) mid battle in videogames all the fucking time. And don't see how it would make the game any easier it's just one battle and you're allowed to level up mid battle so I don't see how this would be unfair to computerized opponent. It's kinda annoying to wait through the entire battle to wait for a poke to evolve or have to gain another level if you lose.

    I chose, "Yes - Evolving during a battle would be much more exciting" cause it will be like the anime which is cool since Ash's pokemon do that a lot.

    There's a big difference in stat increases from a simple level-up as compared to full evolution.

    I also don't understand the waiting through an "entire battle" statement. Most battles last only a minute or 2, and into post-game, they probably only last seconds. Not only that, but Gen 5's battles are much faster than previous Gens.

    cause changing a 2d sprite is SO much harder than changing a 3d model which requires different hit detection

    Pokemon is a strategy game. The entire purpose of the games is battling your Pokemon and preparing a team that is prepared to face all kinds of Pokemon. The only thing mid-battle evolution would do is possibly cut down on losses by giving you an edge if your Pokemon happens to level up. Here's the point though: If you're stronger than your opponent, you won't need an evolution right away, you can beat them without it. And if you're weaker than your opponent, you won't be getting the EXP points to trigger the evolution anyway. So there really isn't a need for mid-battle evolution because it really won't do anything other than give us even more of an advantage over the NPCs than we already have.

    Probably no, as I personally like to see my Pokemon evolve at the end of the battle I personally see it as somewhat of a "prize", like I'm achieving something at the end of the hard work I just did, having the Pokemon evolve in the middle of the battle would just ruin that surprise moment of the Pokemon evolving at the end of the battle, otherwise, the games would be less enjoyable.

    I wouldn't like it, but it would be HILARIOUS if you did that online.

    *In battle* What, Magikarp is evolving?

    Congratulations, your Magikarp evolved into Gyarados

    Actually, it would probably be impossible online due to Pokemon not gaining experience from those battles.

    Lol I just realized that, but if the trainers could think, I think they'd think that.

    No, while that might be exciting in the anime, but it's for show. I think it would be seriously annoying if a gym leader's Pokemon spontaneously evolved in battle, evolution does give Pokemon a boost in stats, it might make a Pokemon difficult to defeat, as for it happening with your Pokemon, I dont see the nessesity at all. I think the system is perfectly fine how it is. The anime is made to be different from the games.

    That sounds like a great idea to me. If you can imagine yourself in a middle of a battle when your about to defeat one pokemon when it suddenly evolves, it'll up the difficultly of the battles making them more intreasting than before since the battles we have now aganist the CPU are really easy if you stragize a little bit.
