Evolution is one of the most important things that most Pokemon do, but 8.14% of all Pokemon will never experience evolution. These Pokemon might not permanently transform, but they still have plenty of things that make them special. For this list, we'll be looking at interesting trivia and details about these unique Pokemon.  

What are some things you didn't know about Pokemon that don't evolve? Let's start with Heracross and Pinsir. These two enormous bug Pokemon do have Mega Evolutions, but those are short-lived. They have something else in common - the two species are close friends! Here's a detail about a lesser-known Pokemon: Pyukumuku fights similarly to Tsuyu from My Hero Academia!

    Like all fossil Pokemon, Aerodactyl was an ancient beast that was brought back to life after becoming extinct. But the version of Aerodactyl that emerges from fossils isn't exactly the same as the one that roamed the skies in the past. Apparently, no scientist has succeeded in creating an exact replica.

    Both Heracross and Pincer are large bug Pokemon who don't evolve - unless you count their mega evolutions. According to Pinsir's Pokedex entries, the two species are good friends and get along well. The same can't be said for Pinsir and Vikavolt - those two are sworn enemies.

    Because Marshadow is an anxious Pokemon that spends most of its time hiding in the shadows of other Pokemon, it was mostly unknown to humans until recently. Any hints of its existence were considered myths.
