Starmie should have an evolution. If I can't justify why then why does it matter? I don't play competitively, I collect. So I don't give a shit about stats and everything to do with them. I only breed for IVS and EV train occasionally for people who do want Pokemon for competitive battles. Like I said before, I shouldn't have to justify my reasons. /End of. I hate arguing.
A Steelix evolution would be cool, but then I think they'd give it to Jasmine.. and I already hate her steelix. So I hope they don't make one. :@
Magcargo would like one, it desperately wants better attacking stats and Fire/Rock is actually a pretty good offensive typing. With slightly more speed (maybe base 50?) and more solid offenses it would be able to abuse Shell Smash decently.
I'd also like to see Masquerain get an evolution that regains the Bug/Water typing of Surskit. That with Quiver Dance and Intimidate would be amazing.
Starmie technically cannot evolve, because it would be committing two taboos at once:
1) No Pokemon that has evolved with an evolutionary stone, has ever evolved again. Perhaps more importantly...
2) Its stats are much too high. The highest-stat Pokemon that evolves, is Porygon2, whose base stat total is 5 points less than Starmie's.
Furthermore, you can see for yourself by looking at other Pokemon whose BSTs are the same as Starmie's: Flygon, Klinklang, Chandelure...
For me, I'd like to see a pre-evolution of Aerodactyl and Skarmory. For Aerodactyl, probably something like a gray Archen and for Skarmory a smaller flightless bird with more innocent eyes. I'd also want a Spinda evolution; it's such a shame that it can't abuse Superpower with its DW ability since it's slow. Imagine Spinda's evolution with Contrary, Superpower and better stats, well, it would get a spotlight in UU if not in OU. What I really want is Mawile. It really looks like a potent Pokemon if given an evolution. Also, Mawile is pretty awesome, it pleases me aestethically. Other Pokemon would be Miltank, Tauros, Pinsir, Heracross, and Seaking.
Pokemon Black FC: 2752 | 2583 | 3814
Parasect has 3. Also, physical/special moves aren't tied to elemental type anymore.
I agree with the rest of your ideas, though.
Here are my ideas for them:
- PREVOS -
Heracross and Pinsir should have the same prevo, who evolves according to... moveset, maybe? Megahorn and X-Scissor?
Tauros, Miltank AND Bouffalant should have the same prevo, who evolves according to gender, and something else for Bouffalant.
- EVOS -
Mawile: Should look like this. Maybe Steel/Ghost type. Three immunities, eight resistances, only two weaknesses.
Primeape: You already described Primeape's evo, I agree with you. Too many monkey Pokemon, not enough apes.
Surskit: Branch evo, retains the Bug/Water typing. Giant water beetle.
Banette: Its hat should become a claw, that hangs above the actual Pokemon, holding it up with wires. Evolves by trading with held item.
Altaria's is easy: Thunder cloud, with lightning streaking out of it. Maybe Dragon/Electric type, probably not.
Spinda: Actual panda bear, holding a bamboo staff of sorts.
Stantler: Moose. Shaggy, woolly, hairy moose.
Rapidash: Pegasus unicorn. Fire/Flying type.
Roselia in DP).
I could list off a bunch of no-brainer evos, like Sableye and Dunsparce, but instead...
Beheeyem evo: Tripod Pokemon, visibly much larger than Beheeyem and Elgyem. Retains the bell-shaped head of Beheeyem as its "cockpit", with even more black markings. Has a green "windshield" in place of eyes, and the classic set of tricolor lasers directly below. In place of its old limbs, it has three spindly legs, disproportionately long in comparison to its prevos and its own head. Each leg ends in tricolor "graspers". I'm thinking Psychic/Steel type, but that's already been done with Metagross and Bronzong, so I'm not too sure.
EDIT: Its name should be Yeweffoe.
