The Fire-type Pokémon Evolver.

Pokémon Evolvers are a set of eight flip pages designed by David Roe which shows the evolutionary lines of Pokémon. It also includes a description of the Pokémon based on the Pokédex entry from Pokémon Red and Blue and shows some moves that they can learn and use.



Grass shows the Bulbasaur evolutionary line. The cover shows Victreebel, Vileplume, Gloom, Tangela, Weepinbell, Bellsprout, Paras, Parasect, and Oddish. Ash says he just caught a Bulbasaur while Misty bets it's cute. It then shows and states a strange seed is planted on the back of a Bulbasaur and it grows as it grows. Ash then tells Bulbasaur to use Leech Seed on Geodude to sap its energy. Flipping the page shows Ivysaur and it says that while the seed grows that Ivysaur loves the ability to stand on its hind legs. Ash then has it attacking several Pokémon: hitting Pidgey with Vine Whip, dusting Omanyte with PoisonPowder, and attacking Hitmonlee with Razor Leaf. Flipping to the last page shows Venusaur. It says that the plant on its back absorbs sunlight and moves to seek sunlight. It blasts a Poliwrath with SolarBeam, blankets Sandslash with Sleep Powder, and uses Growth to increase its special abilities.


Ghost shows the Gastly evolutionary line. The cover shows Team Rocket along with Team Rocket running away from a Gastly owned by Ash Ketchum who states even bad guys are scared of his Ghost-type Pokémon. It says that it is almost invisible and cloaks the target and uses Sleep Powder without being noticed. Haunter is shown using Confuse Ray on Exeggcute and Night Shade on Starmie. It says since Haunter can go through block walls that people believe it comes from another dimension. Gengar is seen putting a Slowbro to sleep with Hypnosis and using Dream Eater on a sleeping Mr. Mime.


Bug shows the Caterpie evolutionary line. The cover shows Venomoth, Pinsir, Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Paras, Parasect, Venonat, and Scyther. Ash tells Pikachu he just caught a Caterpie. Samurai states he won't rest until he has trained all bug Pokémon. Caterpie is stated to have suction pads on the tip of its little feet that allow it to climb slops and walls tirelessly. It then slows down an Oddish using String Shot. Flipping the page shows Metapod. It says its body is weak when the shell is soft making it vulnerable to attack. Ash tells it to use Harden and says Weepinbell will get tired out before Metapod can be hurt. Flipping to the last page shows Butterfree. It says it flaps its wings fast during battle to release highly Toxic dust into the air. It sends Gloom to sleep using Sleep Powder. Butterfree is then seen making a battle end by using Whirlwind on Hypno. Butterfree then uses Psybeam on Tangela to confuse it.


Fire shows the Charmander evolutionary line. The cover shows Ponyta, Rapidash, Growlithe, Arcanine, Vulpix, Ninetales, and Flareon. Ash enthusiastically claims he will capture a Charmander, and Gary claims that he will catch one first. Charmander is shown on the first page and is given the description: "Obviously prefers hot places. When it rains, steam is said to spout from the tip of Charmander's tail." At the bottom, it shows Ash commanding Charmander to use Scratch on a Venonat. Charmeleon is featured on the second page, stating: "When Charmeleon swings its burning tail, it elevates the temperature to unbearably high levels." Charmeleon is then shown using Ember on an Exeggutor, Leer, and Rage on a Parasect. The final page features Charizard, and the description states: "Charizard spits fire that is hot enough to melt boulders. It is known to cause forest fires unintentionally." It then features Charizard using Fire Spin on an Arbok, scorching a Victreebel with Flamethrower, and cutting a Beedrill with Slash.


Psychic shows the Abra evolutionary line. The cover shows Hypno, Mewtwo, Jynx, Slowpoke, Mr. Mime, Slowbro, and a Drowzee. Ash asks Pikachu if he read his mind. Despite all the Pokémon present, Ash says he was about to choose an Abra. Opening to the first page shows Abra posing. It says it uses its ability to read minds. Abra will teleport away from impending danger. Abra is shown to be nearly attacked by a Fearow and Ash tells it to Teleport away to safety. On the next page, Ash through a voice bubble tells Kadabra to use Disable so Machop can't use Karate Chop and is seen giving the Machop a headache simply by being close by and emitting alpha waves. It is then shown using Confusion on Bulbasaur to make it unaware of what is going on. It then uses Psybeam on a Weepinbell to confuse it. On the last page, Alakazam is seen protecting itself from Hitmonchan by using Reflect. Alakazam is then asked to use Recover to heal. Alakazam then proceeds to use Psychic on Mankey to make it weaker. Alakazam's brain is stated that it can outperform a Supercomputer and has an IQ said to be 5,000.


Fighting shows the Machop evolutionary line. The cover shows Mankey, Primeape, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, and Poliwrath. Ash enthusiastically tells Pikachu to look at the moves of the Fighting Pokémon, while Master Trainer Bruno introduces himself as one of the Elite Four and comments that training Fighting Pokémon is hard work but worth it in the end. Machop is shown on the first page and says that it loves to build muscles and trains in all martial arts to become stronger. At the bottom, it shows Ash commanding Machop to use Karate Chop on a Raticate. Flipping the page shows a Machoke posing, and says that its muscular body is so powerful that it must wear a power-save belt to regulate its motions. Machoke is shown to use Leer, Low Kick on a Meowth and a Critical hit Focus Energy on a Chansey. The last page shows Machamp leaning forward and states it can throw powerful punches that send its victim right over the horizon. It shows it using Submission on a Tauros, and Seismic Toss on a Jigglypuff.


Rock shows the Geodude evolutionary line. The cover shows Onix, Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Kabuto, Kabutops, Omanyte, Omastar, and Aerodactyl. Holding a Poké Ball forward, Ash exclaims that Rock-type Pokémon are strong and that he'd like to get a Geodude. On the other side, James also also wishes that he had a Geodude, while Jessie rebuts saying sometimes James' head was nothing but a rock. Geodude is shown on the first page and states that it is found in fields and mountains but is often mistaken for boulders. At the bottom, it shows Ash commanding Geodude to use Tackle on a Growlithe. Flipping the page shows Graveler, and says that it rolls down slopes to move and rolls over any obstacle without slowing or changing its direction. Graveler is shown to use Rock Throw, Defense Curl and Self-Destruct on a Scyther. On the last page, Golem is seen using Harden. Golem is also shown using Earthquake on Rapidash and Submission on Pinsir. Golem's boulder-like body is stated to be extremely hard and that it can easily withstand dynamite blasts without damage.



  • For the Australian release, the height and weight of the Pokémon are given in the metric scale.


  • The Grass Evolver erroneously states that Grass types are weak to Dragon-type moves even though they only do average damage.
    • However, Grass-type moves are not very effective against Dragon-type Pokémon.
  • The Ghost Evolver erroneously states that the Gastly evolution line, and thus the entire Ghost-type, is weak to Normal-type Pokémon even though most Normal attacks can't damage Ghost types.
    • It also misspells Night Shade as NightShade.
  • The Bug Evolver erroneously states that Bug types are weak to Ghost and Fighting types. Ghost-type moves do average damage and they are resistant to Fighting moves.
  • The Fire Evolver erroneously states that Fire types are weak to Fire and Dragon type attacks. Fire-type moves are not very effective and Dragon-type moves do normal damage.
    • However, Fire-type moves are not very effective against Dragon-type Pokémon.
  • The Fighting Evolver erroneously states that Focus Energy can cause damage.
  • The Rock Evolver misspells Selfdestruct as Self Destruct.
