Pokémon evolution guide

Evolution is a key part of the Pokémon games. Evolving pokemon makes them stronger and often gives them a wider movepool. Moreover, many species of pokemon are only obtainable through evolution.

There are several methods of evolution, with more variations being added with each game. In Red/Blue/Yellow, a pokemon might evolve by training it to a certain level, applying an elemental stone, or trading via cable link. In Gold/Silver/Crystal, additional methods were added, namely happiness level and trading with a held item. Later games added yet more based on things such as gender, time of day or after a move is learned.

Below is a list of every pokemon, grouped into their evolutionary chains for easy browsing, and with the conditions by which they evolve. Note that for most "conditional" evolutions (such as Happiness level), the pokemon needs to level up once the condition is met in order to evolve.
