Okay, everyone sing the chorus! "Pokémon! Gotta catch 'em all/It's you and me/I know it's my destiny/Pokémon! Oh, you're my best friend/In a world we must defend." Ahhh, that felt good. It's not just the song or the animated characters, but what attracts most Pokémon devotes is the power you can bestow with training, applying an elemental stone or trading. You are in control of your Pokémon's evolution. And in the Pokémon world, evolving is everything. Pokémon get stronger and often get a wider move pool. And you can't beat that rich, satisfied feeling of capturing one of the top, megaton Pokémon to have in battle.
Did you play the Red, Blue, or Yellow version? Or did you start with the Gold, Silver, or Crystal versions when happiness or trading with an item was available? If you joined the Pokémon ranks later than that, evolving could happen with gender, time of day, or after a certain move was learned. And then of course, "Pokémon GO!" brought it all into the real world.
No matter when you started, now is the time to put your gaming skills to the test. Tell us how to evolve each Pokémon. But please don't get Ivysaur if you miss a couple, we want you to be Happiny. Start the quiz now.
