    Maniacal Engineer's Crackpot Theory Corner: Darwinian Evolution in the Pokémon World

    And caterpillars eat and eat and eat to store up the energy required for metamorphosis. Instead, Pokemon train and gain Exp. Pokemon don't show "no signs" of their changes happening before it happens. They grow levels. They learn new moves. Their stats increase. Their EVs increase. There are...
