So, I acquired a Baltoy in Pokemon LeafGreen. I got it to its evolution level and it began to evolve. It just abruptly stopped, let out its cry and I got this weird in-game message. Is there any way to fix this?
Firered and Leafgreen are kind of insane about making sure you can only use Kanto Pokémon until you get the national dex. They’ll automatically cancel an evolution if the Pokémon would evolve into something outside the Kanto Dex. Usually this is meant to prevent players from getting Crobat and Blissey before the postgame, but I guess it also applies here.
