When I say that I mean when Iris has a level 50 something hydreigon when it doesnt evolve until level 64?

If you use Unova Link, you could make the trainers' Pokemon stronger by switching to Challenge Mode.

Well obviously GameFreak wants to make the Trainers/Elite4 somewhat challanging to an extent, but not to an overpowering level. This means they have to put in Pokemon with high base stats - but not at the levels in which they're supposed to evolve. It has happened in basically every Pokemon game =)

They do this to increase the stats of an opposing NPC's Pokemon, to make the game a little more challenging. It's possible to get over-leveled Pokemon in the wild, never under-leveled evolved Pokemon though.

Hope I helped. :)

Wait... you can catch wild Pokemon that shouldn't have evolved yet?!?
You can find Pidgey in their 40's in Sinnoh post-dex. :3
That is the most Pokemon-esque sentence ever. xD
Oh, can someone please upvote this again? I'm sorry, I just can't stand the horror of an... undeserved downvote. -gasp-
@trachy are you talking about say for example catching level 3 Pidgeotto?
I'm confused :/
I just want this answer upvoted. Even if I gave false information, the information doesn't apply to the question. It was just something I thought was relevant.
It doesn't deserve a damn downvote. ._.
