Today’s topic: What Is Your Favorite Pokemon Evolution Line
I think the popular pick here is Syther and Scizor , but not to me. My favorite is Tyrouge’s line.
Tyrouge did a lot of cool things for evolution, much like a lot of Johto pokemon had done. Johto was full of experiments back in the day. It added breeding. This opened the door to baby forms that Kanto never had. Cleffa, Igglybuff, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, and Tyrouge were baby forms added for preexisting pokemon. This element was so cool to me. They also took it a step further and added split evolutions, a characteristic previously only found in Eevee. Poliwhirl, Gloom, Slowpoke, and Hitmonlee and Hitmontop were the lucky few given split evolutions(Obviously, Eevee was given two more) .
Tyrouge’s line was the only given both.
Tyrouge would evolve into Hitmonlee if it’s attack stat was higher than it’s defense. Tyrouge would evolve into Hitmonchan if it’s defense was higher than it’s attack. Tyrouge would evolve into Hitmontop if it’s defense and attack were the same.
Tyrouge was extremely cool and I dare say has contributed the second most to experimenting with what we can do with evolution next to Eevee. The arguement could be made Tyrouge has done more, honestly.
Tyrouge is definitely one of the more interesting Pokemons.
