Let’s face it starter pokemon are probably the most important and crucial component to your team. From being the first companion on your journey to being the central point of your team it’s safe to say that starters play a huge role in the pokemon franchise. And with the new starters being showcased in the sun and moon trailers it has gotten fans like me speculating on what the potential evolutions could look like. So with the help of some very talented artists I’ve decided to give you guys the best possible pokemon sun and moon starter evolutions. For this video im not only going to be showing you guys what the evolutions could look like, but im also going to be giving potential stats, move pools, and hidden abilities for the pokemon. Keep in mind this is my own opinion so if you have your own idea for a potential evolution be sure to let me know in the comment section below.
If you guys enjoy the video be sure to leave a like subscribe and share this video with a friend and with that being said let’s get started. Let’s start with the first pokemon introduced to us, rowlett. As you know rowlet is the grass flying starter and definitely the most popular out of the three. According to the pokedex entry Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers. A pokemon design as awesome as rowlet deserves to have awesome evolutions as well. That is why I think this design made by tails19950 would be a great idea for an evolution. Although the pokedex does say it’s fast and silent pokemon have been shown to change when evolving for example slakoth to vigoroth.
I especially love the names that he came up with. Brutowl sounds like a force to be reckon’d with. Stat wise I think this pokemon should be a bulky physical attacker that can eat up hits very well. Some moves to compliment these stats are brave bird leaf blade roost and close combat. as for an ability I believe reckless would be a great idea to have to power up the brave bird attacks. Overall I think this would be a great option for a starter and would love to see it happen in the games.
The next starter introduced to us was the fire starter litten. I thought this pokemon at first looked really stupid, but the more I look at the design of litten the more I really started to like it. Plus the final evolutionary design has a lot of potential to be LIT amirite guys that jokes never been used before. And since most people seem to think that the fire starters are based off the chinese zodiac symbols a tiger evolutionary line would be the best way to go. I think This design made by phatmon conveys the message of a tiger pokemon very well. I think with a design like this adding the dark typing with fire would make a lot of sense. Stat wise this pokemon looks to be a fast physical sweeper that can also take a fair amount of hits. I can see this pokemon getting access to moves like flare blitz, crunch, swords dance, and knock off. For an ability I think it should get a whole new one called fighting spirit that basically is moxie for physical attackers. And last but definitely not least we have Poplio the water starter.
Although this pokemon seems to be receiving a lot of hate, I feel it’s a little undeserved because it has a lot of potential to be great. Plus look at it… how could you hate something that’s so adorable. With that being said one of the best designs for this evolutionary line that I’ve seen was made by smiley, and look at its frickin epic. I especially love the idea of evolving entertainment from a clown to a magician which seems more professional. It also goes really well with the seal aspect because they are usually involved with entertainment. And since it brings a magician like presence to it, I feel it should gain the psychic type to go along with water.
Stat wise this pokemon should be a strong special defensive wall with good special attack and decent speed. In terms of moves this pokemon should get acess to hydro pump psychic calm mind and will-o-wisp. And finally for an ability this pokemon should get acess to either magic guard or magic bounce, either one would be perfect.
