Hey Guys! After being a HUGE fan of Austin's for a few months now (culminating in us by PURE CHANCE releasing videos tackling the same Minecraft topic from two different angles), we're super excited to have Austin on board as the newest THEORIST! And I know a lot of you have been eager for MOAR SCIENCE on the channel, so here it is :) But, as always, since it is a new show, let me know what you think - at the end of the day, new things are always meant to make your lives more entertaining, so if you love it, AWESOME. If you hate it...well, hopefully you don't hate it.

To Evolve, or not to evolve, that is the question. Sure there are plenty of strategic reasons to figure out the exact timing of your Pokemon's Evolution; but what about the disastrous, world ending implications? That's right - it's NEVER the right time to evolve your Pokemon! This knowledge might just save your life. In today's Episode of The SCIENCE!, Austin breaks down what really needs to happen in order for your Magikarp to become a Gyrados and the truth behind this metamorphoses is utterly terrifying.

So wait, this is a new series right? I really like this guy.
that's not how the Pokérap goes.
Tyler Borstein
I got a Pokémon ad before this
Deet Cologon
I am a fan of this guy's speed yelling.
The RPG gamer
couldn't the pokemon just be eating the fainted pokemon that's why there's not fainted pokemon bodies?
Danshaku Lawrence
This guy made a great first impression.

Wha Wha Wha wha.... why do you have to ruin everything I love?!!!!!!!!
Knox Robo
O_O... I will never Evolve Charmander Ever agen
But Hey, it's just a Theory
A Game Theory
OP Master
But wait, what about mega evolution?
verysuch wow
why can't I tell the difference from Austin and matpat?
I hate he calls us poor little childs like we're retarded
Julien Gómez
Woah... I've heard good stuff about Colosseum & XD, but I've never thought about it like that until seeing the footage...
Star vs the forces of evil And doges
I'm a player of Pokemon brick bronze and I have two margickarps today I will evolve them
memes n stuff
austin pokemon evuloution is actually like growing
[GD] SunSet
my theory is that exp is its own element that helps pokemon contain all bad effects and helps them evolve
So this is why Pikachu hates his pokeball...
shona marsden
bah you should rap not even my brother can speak faster than you and he's a rapper

Actually conservation of mass is not a real thing since mass is relative
Heart SIn Blade
wouldn't they be getting all these resources as they level like holding onto them so they wouldn't need to destroy the area around them just wondering
Anas Aboulfejr
there is also the posssibility that they are storing al the needed nutrients extremely concentrated somewhere in their body. the storing theory could be right the thing that is not right is the so fast change into the massive thing
Nate Kovalsky
What, just what
Kennedy Walker
Matteo Ramazzini
it irritates me how he says Gyarados

not hating, one of my favorite channels
what happens when something mega evolves...........
Grim reaper213w3
i would totally watch pokemon do the dirty stuff.
Actually, everything comes from nothing.
As long as Austin is still making content I'll be happy.
Austin is rap god when he fast talks, but instead, he's TALK GOD!
magickarp turns into gyarados because of the myth koi turn into dragons......
Ryan Submarine
Austin is way better than MatPat because he doesn't try to be funny or trendy and actually explains the theory
Conservation of mass contradicts the big bang, you can't get something from nothing, especially by chance.
... what about the theory that pokemon are mecanical beings? also that could be why the poke crys are reusd :)
hold on .....hold on...your science is great and all but you're missing something not to go all Jurassic Park on you , but "life finds a way " what if it is evolution. amped up in a asexual reproduction ,genetical cockroach Style on steroids, kinda way . where are your cute and fuzzy Pokemon. sacrifices himself as food. to not only genetically make his or her kid something better, but passing on the genetic traits of what friend and foe is. only Solace bouncing baby boy or girl, can get murdered by a Pokeball. HO! MY GOD THAT'S A HORRIBLE THOUGHT!!!!
sorry . I'm going to go curl up and cry now..
Möhveli Pärisee
7:00 - 8:00 Pokemon gaining lvl is the metamorphosis and the final stage of bug turning into butterfly is same as in Pokemon evolution. Sorry but you do not make sense, that science of Pokemon does.
Logan Hobson
well when you kill a pokemon it dissapears dosent it were dose it go?
GL mage123
So... is arginine pun intended for arcanine?
Maximus The Ghost
Video starts with a Gmail inbox and Habanera ... wait.. I know this... Austin starts narrating ... OMG IT'S AUSTIN FROM SHODDYCAST!!

Again, H is cheap, you just have to get it from other molecules.

And you're probably right regarding irradiated craters, especially if your Pokemon evolves, say, in mid-air above a desert (don't even get me started about space), but the reason is because some elements simply are not available everywhere. For example, if you evolve a flying Pokemon in mid air far from land, the Carbon availability is extremely poor. Unlike H, which is nicely available at 2000 tonnes/km^3 (not 200 pg, lol) from water, C is mostly available in the atmosphere as CO2. Which, if Pokemon's world is similar to post-industrial Earth, we are talking about just 400 PPMV of CO2. That is a weight of only 170 ppm. We are talking about just 200 milligrams of Carbon per meter cubed. The other problem here is that frequent use of this should realistically drain vast reserves of Carbon from the atmosphere.

But incidentally, that's still a lot cheaper to instantly suck in and disassemble than to fuse. Plants don't do this instantly, but they still do it for all carbon they uptake, which basically means that plants are BUILT out of Carbon from the air.

The tricky ones are things with trace amounts anywhere nearby.

For example, Metal-type Pokemon? How is one gonna evolve if it is miles above the ocean hanging from a helium balloon with no metals onboard? If it can somehow suck up rocks through the Ocean floor, this would be clearly visible, and honestly might not be much cheaper than fusion. Perhaps the process is made energy-neutral by fusing hydrogen Nitrogen or Oxygen into post-iron elements, but I would still guess this is going to result in a LOT of heat and neutrons.
Peter Smythe
200 PICOgrams/km^3??!!!?!?!?!???! I DON'T THINK SO!

Maybe of elemental H, but you're trivially wrong on H2O in air. A cubic km of air at 100% relative humidity and 20 Celsius will have around 30000 ppmv of water. That's about 19000 ppm by weight, or about 2100 ppm by weight of H atoms, albeit ones connected to something else that must be broken off (Oxygen) at appalling energy costs if the H is to be used for something besides water.

So 1 km^3 of 100% RH air at 20 C masses about 1.2 million tonnes or so (yeah, I know, pretty heavy), so that means you should have around 2500 metric tonnes of H available in that volume. Even a cubic meter has 2.5 grams. Even a cubic millimeter has 2.5 nanograms.

I don't know where you got 200 Picograms. That's fully 19 orders of magnitude too small.

I mean, it's still tough to obtain, but we can get 2500 kg of H in the form of H2O from a cube of wet air 100 meters across. Gyaradose is still sucking in, and partly electrolyzing, a cube of air like 30 meters wide, but that's not THAT terribly bad compared to the crazy you're talking about.
Peter Smythe
Most rock and dirt is primarily made of O, consider that Silicate is SiO2, so that is more than 50% Oxygen by mols and weight. Of course, then your pokemon ought to suddenly be pooping out vast quantities of Silicon afterwards, and Silicon reacts with practically everything (Like, it will BURN in Water, CO2, N2, and other things that are normally thought of as fire-extinguishers. It also takes a PHENOMENAL amount of energy to separate SiO2, which is why quartz is such a tough material in the first place)
Peter Smythe
Maybe when a Pokemon first evolves, it just fills out the basic shape with cheap matter like H, O, C, N, etc, then waits on the rest of it?
Peter Smythe
"Nobody really wants to see that."

Do I need to search "Pokemon rule 34?" Or can we accept that SOMEBODY really REALLY wants to see that.
Gautham Krithiwas
Pokemon evolutions then makes sense in pkmn go since they eat candy

1:19 Hey I'm on Game Theory! In the bottom corner!
Mathew McCleod
So basically think Infamous and the ray sphere but much much worse right?
This seems like a really interesting new series. I look forward to watching more of this guy.
Also, interestingly, in some of the more recent main-series Pokémon games, it is made canon that Pokémon release a large amount of energy when they evolve, and there are both professors studying this and bad guys trying to harvest it.
I would provide a source but honestly I can't find one right now because it was just some NPC talking about it and I'm already staying up too late and I have to be at work in six and a half hours. If anyone can remember who said that it would be awesome. Pretty sure it was Sun and Moon... or it could have been X and Y and they were talking about Mega Evolution... or D/P/Pt, so I've really only narrowed it down to some one NPC in one of three games but whatever.
Cicero -kun
Can you make a playlist of just Matt talking cuz nobody else can pull a video together like him
I really want to see what you'd say about any bullet hell game (especially Touhou)
