As stated in the title, I think that Nintendo/Game Freak should drop trade evolution in future games especially now when it requires getting Nintendo online subscription. It's enough that you have to search for certain Pokemon and items that they require to evolve but then you have to trust someone that they won't steal your perfect iv bred shiny.
There is no point of trade evos if you can't do them. What do you guys think?
Edit: Just to clarify for some people here. I'm a grown-ass mf and none of my friends have Switch let alone Pokemon game. I'm from a country where people only ever played Pokemon Go because it's free. So cut the find a friend bs...
Granted, this is less of a problem in Gen 8 than in Gens 6 and 7, but still something I feel used to be done better in past generations, and should be done better in the future.
I'm a sucker for Pokémon that evolve twice. A cute little creature you catch in the early-game, which eventually evolves into a slightly more competent battler, and then when it starts falling behind the curve it evolves again, into something you can easily take to the Pokémon League. Sort of like your starter, without being your starter. You know the type: Oddish, Aron, Hoppip, Geodude, Gastly, Sandile, Shinx, and so on.
However, it seems like there are fewer of these three-stage evolutions in recent games than there used to be. I mean, the starters still have three evolution stages, and there's the mandatory bird you find early on, and the mandatory early bug, and of course the pseudo-legendary of the region. All are three-stage families, by convention.
But these Pokémon sometimes feel like they're design... keep reading on reddit ➡

In other words, if Niantic could simply let the community know if the mega-compatible Pokemon in the game now will have the ability to Mega Evolve when the feature is released, this would help us save tons of time. Right now Aerodactyl is in tasks -- are we supposed to be hunting those? Were we supposed to be hunting the Scythers in the bug-out event? Were we supposed to be hunting Numels during the Numel spotlight hour? Because if we're going to do all that work and then find out that none of are Mega Evolution compatible, a lot of the fanbase is going to react negatively. It would be very prudent for Niantic to give us a heads up this time, so we can adjust our expectations accordingly, and not waste time out of our lives preparing for something which can't be prepared.
I don't know, this is a pretty self-explanatory thread. If you have any progress albums, post them below, along with any thoughts you have on how your style has changed and why it's changed and where you see it going in the future. Share any suggestions you might have for someone new who isn't sure where to go from the basics. Even if you're past the point of major style changes, it'll be great to hear how you found your style and how you look for stuff that fits your look.

Before the mega-evolution announcement I liked reading up on conversations about if and how they might be introduced and what it will mean for the meta and power creep, but also - what introducing megas will mean for the way Niantic adapts the MSGs to Pokemon Go.
Namely, my concern was that introducing mega-evolutions will set Niantic on a path towards introducing the other two meta restructuring mechanics introduced since - those being Z-moves and Dynamaxing/Gigantamaxing, and probably any other introduced in Gen 9 and later, and how all those would impact the unitary closed system of Pokémon Go, as opposed to the more serialized form that the MSGs have, which allows them to simply exclude meta-defining mechanics in a generation where they are introducing a new one. They had the chance to forego megas and z-moves in SwSh, so as not to overwhelm the game once Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing came in play - Pokémon Go doesn't have the same luxury, and if Niantic decides to introduce all of... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yesterday Big Cat wrote a blog post taking responsibility for racist jokes that are resurfacing, whereas Dave pretty much gave a middle finger to the haters.
I couldn’t help but think back to the Patton Oswalt interview. They discussed how comedy has to be viewed in context but also has to evolve. It’s dumb to retroactively condemn statements that look awful by today’s standards yet didn’t ruffle feathers at the time they were said; however, comedians should adapt and move away from material where the comedic value has evaporated in light of new sensitivity regarding that material (race, sexual assault, etc).
Dave wholly commits to the context notion, and I think it’s both fair and smart given that any other approach wouldn’t be his style. (I also agree that comedy should generally be insulated from PC warriors.)
But that doesn’t mean what Big Cat posted amounted to him tucking his tail - he just acknowledged the evolution aspect, appreciating things are different now.

Apologies if posted before but I thought this TED Talk by the same title was excellent.
TLDW: Evolution says our perception is not based on accuracy, but rather on "fitness" - i.e. what works to our advantage regardless of what is reality. And that in fact, our perception does Not accurately portray reality. Our perception told us the earth is flat, and the earth is at the center of the universe - both wrong.
Out perception is like a computer: Space Time is the desktop, Objects are icons.
"It is as hard for us to let go of Space Time and objects, as it is for the Jewel Beetle to let go of it's bottle." Donald Hoffman (sounds like Douglas Adams, Hitchiker's Guide, lol).
So just WTF is reality ??? He has interesting thoughts.
