Why that never happened in the first run? I'm extremely surprised all of their Pokemon were able to evolve..
I'm pretty sure some of the later evolutions were done in democracy, maybe Omastar and stone evolutions can't be cancelled in gen 1 so that's how Nidoking got without a hitch. Digrat and BirdJesus took a while until they were evolved too.
Now, there's a faction that really finds this stupid abd doesn't want progress thinking that accomplishes something
