Hello People, I’m Soniclink137. I'm a Christian, but don't let that discourage you. So long as you don't get on my bad side, which is hard to do, you'll find I'm quite easy to get along with. Otherwise I'm a fan fic writer. The three main series I write fics on are Sonic, Pokémon, and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. So if you have a venomous hate for any of them, then you probably don't want to watch me. Just saying. Otherwise if you don't, then give me a watch if you want to and enjoy my works.

Interests
Cool, I actually got a title to fit for this.

Anyways, a small, but still there, talk among those speculating for what Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon will include have been questioning/wondering/hoping whether you'll be able to evolve the Hero and Partner before you beat the game in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon. So me being me, I decided to speculate on that myself. And me being me, I decided to form up two sides of the argument over, from what we know now, why you probably will and probably won't in the game. I'm not going to specifically say yes or no, since we don't even know yet, just give out both sides of the argument. So let's get started.

Yes:
First off, and probably the largest, if you've seen the cover art for the game, you'll notice that they show all the starters in many different evolutionary forms. You have your base form starters in Chesipn, Riolu, Cyndaquil...frankly around half of them to be honest; you have your second form in Braixen, Servine, and Dewott; you have your final form in Greninja, Empoleon, and Infernape; and you've even got Mega Charizard Y (the only spinoff game currently that remembers it exists) and Mega Sceptile.
Granted, this isn't really that unusual. Explorers of Sky had Pikachu, Wolverine, Prinplup, and Meganium on its cover art. However that's the only other cover art to include evolved forms of the starters on it and that was from a remake (sort of), so obviously it wouldn't have the starters suddenly be able to evolve earlier. And the rest of the cover arts always featured the starters in their base form.

Second, with Mega Evolution being included in the game a lot of people are probably going to want to evolve their starters as soon as possible to get those Mega Evolutions (not me though, but then again I'm going with Pikachu and Fennekin so I can't). So because of that gameplay mechanic I can imagine the producers making it so you can evolve in story.

Third sort of depends on me being right about something. I have long speculated this story to be a sort of coming of age story, at least when it comes to the partner. Well, while that isn't always the case, evolution is sometimes used as a symbol of growing up when it comes to a Pokemon. So story wise, it would make sense to include evolution in the actual game as a sort of gameplay and story integration. Granted it'd probably be optional, but it'd be still there.



No:
There is one key reason for why the only let you evolve after the game ends in previous Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games. After that usually all the cutscenes are done, all the dialogue is over, things of that nature. Why does that matter you may ask? It's simple really. That way the developers can be lazy/save space for other things on the cartridge (I prefer to think the latter but take your pick) and not have to put in certain animations and emote boxes for the evolutions to the starters. I mean, let's think about this for a moment.
There are 20 starters. 18 of those starters has three different forms they can take whereas the last two only have two. That's 58 different starter possibilities throughout the entire game. To get a sense of scale, let's say each of them would get around 10 emote boxes for different emotions. I think there are more than that, but I can't really remember so let's go with that for now. That means that they'd have to program in 580 emote boxes just for each of the starters and put them in all the cutscenes for the Hero and Partner. And that's just the starters. Imagine including anyone who can evolve who's also part of the story, like all of the school kids. And that's not even going into all the animations that would happen in cutscenes either, which they'd have to do for every possible Pokemon. I don't know how much data it actually takes to do all of that normally for the starters but I can't imagine it's easy. It's possible they can do so, but I can't imagine it being easy. 
That's probably the biggest reason for why they wouldn't let you evolve in the game. It's possible that it'd be too taxing on the system or keep them from being able to fully implement what they want to (or again, they could be too lazy to put that stuff in there). If they can get past that hurdle than I'm sure they could implement evolution in the game. If not...then no.



Personally I'm ambivalent either way. I might keep them unevolved throughout the story anyways, since I think it's absolutely bada#@ beating whatever eldritch abomination the final boss happens to be as two basic Pokemon, but I'm sure people would appreciate the ability to evolve. And I'm fine with it so long as the game isn't lessened because of it.

What would happen if you were to give Tails some magic stone from Hyrule? He'll evolve into...

Congratulations, you Tails evolved into what I was originally going to make my user name, before deciding to stick with the two mascots.

If that was the case, yours would've been Tailslink137. We got too many usernames with 'Sonic' anyways.

Since you've been enjoying your time at TV Tropes, here's a scenario:

Trolling is bad, especially when used against someone like the Hulk. But happens when the Hulk does the trolling?

We're pretty much at lost here. :XD:

Uhh...well...if the Hulk is trolling then the Hulk is not angry so he hopefully won't smash? Or I'll just leave this planet and head to the DCU. Either one works.
