    getting replaced by later Evolutions or becoming extinct (much like real-life evolution theory.)

    In the case of Nidoran, Nidoran is once thought to have been a single species,
    But over time, their each respected species diverged, specializing along gender.
    This is prior to there being a Nidorino/Nidorina 2rd stage Evolution,
    whichcame about as a result of the gender specialization and
    Nidoking/Nidoqueen arose when Moonstones were introduced.

    As a result, the original species of Nidoran that was composed of both Genders now no longer exists,
    Only Nidoran (male) and Nidoran (female) remains.
    Okay, I see what you're saying. I have an alternative idea to how at least some Pokemon might have arose (though my idea is not necessarily incompatible with the one you presented), but that idea you gave could also explain why some species have baby forms that are actually harder to obtain than the normal Pokemon, right?

    That's what I'm thinking, yea.

    Pokemon such as Snorlax have "Stabilized" onto a single Evolutionary stage,
    which results in Snorlax only laying Eggs that will Hatch into Snorlax.
    But Snorlax still retains the DNA of it's pre-evolution Munchlax
    Which is how it can be brought out and causes Snorlax to lay a Munchlax egg.

    If we project this onto a Pokemon to potentially follow the same pattern
    It's possible that Gyarados may one day phase-out it's Magikarp Stage
    resulting in Gyarados becoming a 1-stage Pokemon and Magikarp becoming extinct.

    Of course, much would have to happen to cause this result, including
    (but not limited to) Gyarados becoming the Dominate evolutionary stage
    as well as Magikarp becoming far fewer in number. So, not likely to happen.

    I can agree with you to an extent. But imagine how the pokedex would be. It would be grass, fire, water for six cycles. Kind of would be weird.
    In that dex, I would see the flying natives being moved next to each other.
