Alright, there are a ton of Pokemon. Different in their own way. It is really cool when you get to thinking about it. Now they all are their own species. But you might start to wonder that some of them have to be related in some way. They just look as if they can’t be passed up when compared to another Pokemon. Take a Pichu for instance, it evolves into a Pikachu. Not to mention that they have really close names, but also they look alike. Just about the same Pokemon though they are different species. An evolution may seem to be a different species but I like to think of them as a more mature and not to mention more powerful form of their pre-evolved forms. How do you evolve a Pokemon? Well there are many, many ways of doing so. You see, a Pokemon such as Charmander has three evolution stages, Charmeleon and Charizard. This particular Pokemon evolves by level up. Meaning it will evolve at a certain level, this is the most common type of evolution. And now, if you take a Pichu and want to evolve it into the famous Pikachu, level up will help, but won’t work. This Pokemon evolves by friendship. Level it up, have it hold a Soothe Bell, get it to respect you fully. Now you have a Pikachu, surprise, surprise Pikachu doesn’t evolve by level either. It evolves with an evolution stone known as the Thunderstone. You must give this stone to Pikachu whenever you feel it time to evolve it or you want to evolve your Pikachu. Another type of evolution is by trade, for instance, you may want to evolve your Machoke into a Machamp. Level sadly won’t work, you have to trade it with another person for it to evolve. A Pokemon like Onix will evolve if you give it the Metal Coat and trade it to someone.
In some rare cases you can find a Steelix in the wild at Iron Island in the Sinnoh region. Some Pokemon, like Eevee, the ruler of evolution, will evolve into Leafeon if you level it up by the Moss Rock. That is the majority for evolutions right there.
So far the current Pokemon that evolves by level and is the highest leveled Pokemon to evolve to date is Hydreigon. It is impossible to have a Hydregion below level sixty four unless it is through a Pokemon event. Evolutions bring strength but some people rather keep there Pokemon unevolved. Ash Ketchum from the anime never evolved Pikachu into a Raichu to this date. Do you like to keep your Pokemon unevolved? If so, which ones? Or do you prefer to keep your Pokemon evolved.
Have you heard of a rare Pokemon? What about a Pokemon that doesn’t even look like a Pokemon, more like a tree. You would think it is a grass type Pokemon, a ground type Pokemon, or maybe, just slightly a bug type Pokemon or a normal type Pokemon. This tree Pokemon is a master of mimicry. This Pokemon is a Sudowoodo. Sudowoodo is a rock type Pokemon, strange isn’t it? Everyone would think it to be a grass type Pokemon from the start. Sudowoodo can’t be encountered in the wild, but found in the wild. Only one of the, in the Johto region blocking the way to Ecruteak City.
You have to get the squirt bottle in order to awaken this tree. What is this tree? When you touch it, it simply sways, it can’t be an actual tree, can it? Well this tree is a Pokemon, it will awaken to a Sudowoodo, all it takes is a bit of water. The reason it awakens this Sudowoodo is probably because since Sudowoodo is a rock type Pokemon, and rock type Pokemon absolutely hate water. Unless it is a rock type Pokemon and a water type Pokemon, like an Omanyte which evolves into a more powerful Omastar. These Pokemon actually inhabit the water so obviously aren’t afraid of it.
Sudowoodo, on the other hand, thinks differently then a normal tree does, instead of sucking up the water like a tree Sudowoodo gets out of it(s mimic of a tree and immediately gets into a battle with you. This Sudowoodo has power, but it won’t be the most powerful Pokemon on earth. His defenses and his mimic attack, which copies any move last used by the opponent. In the anime there are two researchers that are studying this strange Pokemon, they are mainly debating there types between each other. In the recent anime, in the Diamond and Pearl anime series, Brock has a Bonsly, this Bonsly will later evolve into a Sudowoodo, which is a loyal Pokemon that salutes to Brock after a command. What do you think of the Pokemon Sudowoodo?
