Evolution

The process that 90% of known Pokemon undergo, once specific criteria have been met. Usually, when a Pokemon evolves it changes not only its physical appearance, but also its growth rate. Evolved Pokemon tend to grow significantly slower than their premature counterparts.

Evolution can be triggered a variety of ways: By Leveling up or though contact with an Elemental Stone. The item Everstone will stop evolution. Alternatively, one can stop a Pokemon from evolving by pressing the "B" button as soon as the Pokemon starts to evolve.

In the animated series, Pokemon evolution was said to alter the Pokemon's personality -for this reason Ash opted not to evolve his buddy Pikachu using the Thunderstone.
