One of the quintessential examples of Pokémon evolution is the Caterpie line, where the little caterpillar turns into the chrysalis-like Metapod before emerging as a beautiful Butterfree. That middle stage has often been seen as somewhat useless by itself, with its only move in the wild being Harden.
