|Just one of a few examples of new evolutions.|
For this, I got the help of my friend the Poké-addict friend Laura, who knows more about Pokémon than all my other friends combined, as well as the Brawl In The Family forum. I also listened to a dozen Youtube videos on the subject. Hopefully you'll enjoy this list! Also, remember that this is all opinion-based. You can disagree with any of the choices on here. Also, please remember that Generations 2 and 4 had a lot of pre-evolutions to previously-existing families, so I'm going to mention a few examples of possible pre-evolutions. Last but not least, Pokémon with Mega Evolutions were confirmed not to evolve again, therefore theyre not on the list (sorry Absol, Mawile and Kangaskhan).
Remember that this article contains a number of links to pictures by fans, therefore unofficial material. I congratulate those fans for their wonderful imagination. Those pictures of Fake Pokémon aren't mine; credit goes to their artists.

Lapras is one of the remaining few Pokémon from Gen 1 that still didn't get a new evolution at all. Yet, you'll tell me “But Lapras is already competitive!” I understand. I never meant Lapras to evolve, either. Lapras is a large animal, eight feet tall and a little longer than that. It's kind of hard to believe that this wonderful, gracious beast was born like this. No, there has to be a Pokémon that came before Lapras, maybe an animal similar to Lapras, except without that shell on its back... Even if it's only half a Lapras' size, it would still be an impressive creature. Okay, maybe four feet tall isn't THAT big, but hey, for a baby, it would still be pretty large. All I'm saying, it's that a pre-evolution to Lapras could be caught earlier in the game, and evolving it early could give the player a great, strong Lapras before the game starts getting hard. Make it happen, Game Freak!
Pinsir and Scyther were a pair in the very first Generation, and then they got a third friend as Heracross in the second. However, out of all those, only Scyther gained an evolution! Technically, it's not an evolution (as the stats are not “really” increased), it's just a stat redistribution and a new typing, as adding all six stats for Scyther and Scizor results in the same amount. Say, why not give such an evolution to Pinsir? Its stats wouldn't change either, they would just get redistributed, and maybe Pinsir would get a different typing would the player decide to evolve it. Truly a marvelous idea that should be explored more. Unless the Mega Evolutions will be directed more toward (Oh, and if that's not asking for too much, maybe a pre-evolution for Scyther, Pinsir and Heracross? Yeah, I like pre-evolutions.)
Special mention as well to all the other “joke” Pokémon: Delibird, Luvdisc, Spinda... and there's probably a few more that I forgot. All those are gimmick Pokémon before even being good Pokémon, and they all need a little something to take them out of the pool of lame Pokémon. That little something is usually an evolution.
And that's sad. Girafarig has potential, not only to get a pre-evolution, but also a cool evolution that puts that Chain Chomp head tail to use. I saw some designs on Internet that are really impressive. I swear, Girafarig NEEDS a boost. And, like many other fans, I'm hoping this cute giraffe Pokémon gets one soon!
Well... That's all I got for the moment. Through my research, I saw well over thirty different Pokémon families that were suggested by fans, families from all the generations, families that needed a boost or, on the contrary, something to make them available earlier or more easily in the game. Some of those ideas, some of those Fakemon are brilliant. The Pokémon series is one of the series the fans have the most fun with, not only when it comes to battling in competitions or just collecting, but also when it comes to creativity. That's the best thing about the Pokémon fandom, in my opinion. I'm gonna dedicate a whole Fun Stuff article to those Fakemon soon enough.
Anyway, I hope you liked this list. Next week, barely ONE DAY before the release of Pokémon X and Y, I'll post a review of a Pokémon game. Which one, you ask? If you saw my schedule on the side bar, you know what game it will be: Pokémon Snap!
