it's fun to pick holes in everything lol
Still, metamorphism visibly happens over time, while Pokemon undergo training and all else you mentioned and then change. Massive changes in power and appearance like that surely can't show no sign of it happening and then suddenly, well, happen.
Very well done and thought out, but I see one tiny hole in here that i'm not even sure is relevant:
What about the other kind of evolution, instantaneous change from one form to a next? Metamorphosis might work, but some changes are drastic enough (i.e. Shroomish to Breloom) I'm not sure it...
