When they were making pokemon x and y they came up with crazy creative methods of evolving , but inkay's is the weirdest one, even it is a little bit logical when you compare inkay and malamar , but I can only imagine someone evolving it when it is in television mode , holds the the joy-cons upside down and it doesn't work so he flips the TV .
The poll will be closed when SwSh are released on 15th november

Given how Game Freak seems to be cutting corners and the fact that motion detection works differently from the 3DS, I think that they’ll drop Inkay’s evolution gimmick and just opt for a simple “reach Level 30” solution.

Maybe the new Inkay evolution gimmick will be that you have to throw the Switch at the wall to evolve Inkay then you have to buy a new Switch console to replace your damaged one. Everybody wins. (y)

But really, a standard level up method would work. I always hated the old gimmick.

Has Inkay/Malamar even been confirmed to be in Galar?

Probably make it a trade-based evolution that requires holding an item. Like what they did with Feebas.

They would most likely use the Switch's gyro controls for Inkay's evolution, I don't see them getting rid of the method just because it's not on the 3DS.

@Poke Dragon It depends on how easy the Switch’s motion controls are to respond to in terms of being docked. Or are you saying that Inkay will only evolve in handheld mode?

With the Switch Lite coming out, I'm guessing you'd only need to hold the screen upside-down.

However, not everyone will be playing on the Switch Lite.
True, but is there a technical difference between the OG Switch and Switch Lite that'll prevent the OG Switch from doing the flip? I will admit and apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge on that
