Evolution family: Shelmet > Accelgor via trade with Karrablast 

Shelmet's evolution Accelgor looks a bit peeved, standing with his arms crossed and his head down. It's no wonder, because his defensive armor has been stolen by a sneaky Karrablast/Escavalier during a trade. That's why the Shelmet/Accelgor loses armor with evolution and Karrablast/Escavalier gains armor, and that armor swap is the catalyst for evolution when you trade one for the other.

    Agree with Wharcraff. It would have been great. I'd have MATTERED! And what a weird thing with its evolutions.

    Great looking pokemon evolution on this one(Accelgor). Reminds me of the BMs(Buster Machines) from Gunbuster 2 OVA, especially Nono. Feels disappointing and I'm alittle relieved Shelmet was not exclusive to Black,while Karrablast would have been exclusive to White. Seems like a lost opportunity on Gamefreak's part to really make that connection of each version's minor differences.
