Stages of evolution
|Stage 1||→||Stage 2||→||Stage 3|
Some Pokémon can evolve into two or more different species of Pokémon depending on the circumstances. An example of this would be Oddish's evolutionary chain.
Eevee currently holds the record for branched evolution by being able to evolve into seven different Pokémon depending on location, time of day & tameness, or evolutionary stone used. Pokémon that evolve from Eevee in this way are known as Eeveelutions.
Several other Pokémon have branches in their evolutionary chain, see List of Pokémon with branched evolutions for the full list.
