Is it possible to stop a Pokemon evolving via trade in Gen 1?



  • If I level up a Pokemon and it's about to evolve, I can hold down B to stop it.
    What about if I trade Kadabra, Graveler, Machoke or Haunter? Can I stop them from evolving when I trade them somehow? I tried it just now and held down B, and they seemed to evolve anyway.



  • Unfortunately, no.

    In Gen 1, the only way to stop a Pokemon from evolving was by pressing B. However, evolution stones and trading trumped pressing the B button.
