I would like the radical change of having all the Eevee evolutions evolve through the good old traditional method... Evolution Stones. Seriously, I was so disappointed when I picked up a Sun Stone and Moon Stone in Gold/Silver to find out that neither of them evolved Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon despite their Pokedex species data saying 'Moonlight' and 'Sun' respectively. Then for Diamond and Pearl we get Leafeon and Glaceon, but do they evolve with a Leaf Stone or one of the new evolution stones? Nooooooooooooooo, they have to make things 'special' by evolving near a specific rock...
I say for the next game, all the special/happiness/time should be tossed out the window and we get back to the basics. Ghost evolution form with Dusk Stone, new Normal evolution with Shiny Stone, Leafeon with Leaf Stone, Umbreon with Moon Stone, Espeon with Sun Stone, Glaceon with a renamed Dawn Stone (<-- why have this stone name when there is a Sun Stone?), etc, etc
^ I like this idea!
The champions come together and a new battle ensues!
Yes iDreamRunner!!!! I hate not just using a stone to evolve Pokemon. I don't really like trading Pokemon while they are holding items either. If they love the item so much why doesn't it just make them evolve with a level up?
I sorta took issue with the held item trade as well. I know Game Freak wants us to get out and trade/interact with our friends but sometimes it can get annoying. Each Pokemon version has its own unique set of Pokemon, which is reason to trade enough. Red and Blue had the evolution by trade and I didn't like that so much, but at least it was limited to 4. Held items trade was certainly unique too, but unfortunately, almost all the awesome Pokemon evolve in this way. To name a few:
Golem, Alakazam, Gengar, Scizor, Kingdra, Weavile
It took me so long to arrange time with friends, then barter trades for these guys. Nothing develops a kid's extortion abilities like trading Pokemon. I remember my biggest fear was trading my Graveler in order to get a Golem only to have the other kid rip out the link cable then run away while I was left with a stupid Caterpie.
I feel the same way, I hate how you have to trade pokemon to get them to evolve. Because you have to trade them I've never been able to get the evolutions.
Now you're playing with power!
Well that's sad Volt Devilray and iDreamRunner. I've never had to worry about that because either I would have both (which was the case for FireRed and LeafGreen). Or my cousins would by one and I would buy the other (HeartGold/SoulSliver and Diamond/Pearl). If I didn't have buddies that I trusted to trade with that would have been rough.
Most of my trades went over smoothly after the release of Gold/Silver and Pokemon's increased popularity. The initial Red/Blue days were rather rough though, since the biggest obstacle to trading wasn't finding a trading partner, it was finding a freakin' link cable.
Yeah I hated link cables. I was glad when they made that wireless thing for FireRed and LeafGreen, but then when you lost it (which happened to my cousins) you had to go out and get a link cable.
dual type eevees... like maybe evolutions or fusions of current ones? like if umbreon evolved maybe he would be psychic dark and have elements of espeon on him.... kinda like the kyurem fusions in black and white 2...
I think a floating ghost type Eevee with levitate would be a pretty epic Eevee. It would be a new style of Eevees too which would bring in a whole lot of praise from Eevee fans. I would say a dual type Eevee would be interesting, but I think it's drifting away from the original concept of Eevee too much, which was always a single type attribute Pokemon
