List of Pokémon with cross-generational evolutions

9 bytes removed, 23:15, 25 November 2019
A few of these Pokémon, as a result of new evolutions, become a part of evolutionary families with [[List of Pokémon with branched evolutions|branched evolutions]]. Pokémon which evolve into a Pokémon of a previous generation, instead of from it, are always [[baby Pokémon]].
Later generations have modified old families by introducing [[regional variantform]]s of older Pokémon adapted for life in different regions. Certain families entirely consist of variant forms while others share an unevolved state before diversifying, much like a branched evolution. Certain Pokémon will only evolve from a specific regional variantform and, therefore, have no counterpart.
==[[Kanto]]-based evolution families==
* Generation IV introduced the most evolutionary relatives to Pokémon from previous generations, with 29, and Generation VI introduced the fewest evolutionary relatives to Pokémon from previous generations, with only one, {{p|Sylveon}}. The only generations that didn't introduce any new cross-generational evolutions (not counting [[regional variantform]]s) are Generation V and Generation VII.
* {{p|Roselia}} is the only Pokémon to have both a pre-evolution and an evolution ({{p|Budew}} and {{p|Roserade}}, respectively) introduced in the same generation.
* {{p|Porygon}} is the only Pokémon to have an evolution introduced in a later generation that was later able to evolve once again.
