** While individual mons do not change as they level up, player characters can learn to create an evolved or improved version. For example, a character who has trained Create Vlish to 3 points can instead create a Terror Vlish, which has higher stats and base level and a more powerful attack.

* One of the early-90s ''TomSwift'' books took this trope to the limit a human being was hit with an evolution ray, and was turned into a specific person, with his own ''memories'', from the far future.

* In the ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' web serial, goblins can transform into hobgoblins. This rare change usually happens after they have eaten a lot.

Instances of this trope in Japanese media, especially in the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise, may be due to a deliberate conflation of UsefulNotes/{{evolution}} with ''metamorphosis''. The word for metamorphosis in Japanese is [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Hentai ''hentai'']], which also has the meaning "sexual perversion". This poses a problem for works marketed primarily at children.

** And then there are cases where it's explained that, in-universe, some Pokémon aren't really transforming when they evolve. Pokémon such as Weezing and Magneton come into being when multiple Koffing and Magnemite fuse together. And then there's Slowbro and Slowking, which is just a symbiotic relationship between a Slowpoke and a Shellder. While the Shellder doesn't evolve, it does change shape and gives Slowpoke new skills and abilities, but Slowpoke itself physically stays pretty much the same. In fact, it's stated that if its Shellder is ever removed, Slowbro and Slowking will revert back to being a Slowpoke.

** The part about "evolution is always the same" is averted with a couple of Pokémon. Eevee has had new evolutions constantly discovered due to its "unstable genetics". So while it can evolve into Jolteon thanks to a Thunder Stone, if it levels up in a [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Sinnoh_Route_217 specific]] [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Twist_Mountain area]] with a [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ice_Rock special glacier]] that's covered in snow, it becomes the Ice-type Glaceon. Likewise, Nosepass and Magneton evolve into Probopass and Magnezone respectively when they level up in certain areas of [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mt._Coronet Sinnoh]] and [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Chargestone_Cave Unova]]. This makes sense in a way, people couldn't get these certain evolutions before simply because nobody had discovered the effects certain areas had on certain Pokémon. They adapted to their new environment. Yes, it happened in the matter of five minutes but it's still a slightly more realistic take on the usual fixed evolutionary lines. But while there ''are'' those sensible ones, there are also some nonsensical ones. Piloswine evolves into Mamoswine by leveling up and knowing Ancientpower...despite being able to learn Ancientpower as far back as its introduction. And, regarding Eevee, there was no day versus night last year? Ridiculous, yet even in the remakes, oh so true.

* In RevolutionaryGirlUtena it's more like [[IncrediblyLamePun Revolution Power Up]]. Concept is pretty similar though.
