Why did nintendo make pokemon like Alomomola and Bouffalant?

0 votes

Why did they make them look close to other pokemon, ex: Alomomola and Luvdisc, Bouffalant and Tauros, if they don't evolve? It would just make sense if they did. Otherwise will they reveal that they do evolve into each other just by new terms?

I have to admit: keeping their evolution a secret would certainly be cool!

But when you look at their stats, it wouldn't make that much sense. Luvdisc goes from having good speed, to really good HP? Not really much of a connection.

True about the stats, but what about electivire? he goes from good speed to good attack? Many pokemon get weaker stats in some areas to make stronger in others when they evlove. Also luzdisc is a rendevous pokemon and alomomola is a carring pokemon...pretty close to me...
Take a look at Luvdisc's and Alomomola's stats, then at Scyther and Scizor's. Scyther and Scizor is as dramatic s evolution stats get, and Luvdisc and Alomomola are still more drastic than them.

There's no way they'd be the same Pokemon, since they also have individual Egg moves and Egg Groups, so there's the proof.

EDIT: "Rendevous" is a French phrase for a meeting place...
I still think they just are alittle wasted. I like them but I want new new...it just looks like they did that on purpose...
if you trade a tauros holding the adamant orb it evolves into luvdisk

Here's my theory:

Unova is a comppletely isolated region that has no pokemons from previous generations they had to make some that would substitute them.

At least thats my theory.

I don't know...if you look at them overall they just seemed to be there just so they could have more than the first generation. they seemed alittle...wasted...

Well, a theory is - history always repetes itself- pokemon is no exeption, new pokemon, some that are similar to others & some not. Think about it- gardevoir & Gothitelle( & evos) are similar, seismitoad (& evos) with polliwag(& evos) are similar, whismicott/lilygant & bellossom/vile plume(I wouldn't be surprised if there was a baby form for those two). Some that arnt are like- Reuniclus, basculin, & the simis. The Unova is like a refurbished version of the other versions combined.

Just a theory...

Well here is what I say it is the same thing as one of the things I say to disprove evolution in the real world. Just because two or more creatures share some resemblance does not mean they are the same creature. Take the supposed Horse evolutions in the real world they never evolved into the horse as they were found in differant parts of the earth, all have differant amounts of ribs, and in the wrong strata. So I it is like that 2 differant pokemon that look similar, with differant powers, in differant regions.

Please note that I am not trying to shove my creationist beliefs in your face I am just useing it to answer a question

The evolution theory is not based on morphological resemblance but on genetic resemblance...
The phenotype is a product of selective gene translation...
