Vivillon is the Gen 6 Pokemon answer to Butterfree. While this Pokemon has a nice design, with 20 wing patterns to collect, it’s a fairly good Pokemon.
The most original name for a Pokemon evolution goes to Dudunsparce, the evolution for Dunsparce. To quote the Angry Video Game Nerd, “What were they thinking!?” The question now, of course, is if adding a single section to Dudunsparce when it evolves actually does much for its base stat totals.

Skeledirge is the final stage evolution of Fuecoco, with Crocalor in between. It is a Fire/Ghost type in the vein of Hisuian Typhlosion.

Which Paradox Donphan is better, and which version, Scarlet or Violet, features the better Donphan form?
Tropius returning in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is clearly a big win for the fan-base. But, is Tropius good outside of its great design and fan appeal?
Dunsparce is more of a good Pokemon now that it has ever been, thanks to having an evolution in Scarlet and Violet.
