Treadshot: That sounds like the sort of challenge I would accept as a backup... having an over 50 percent chance of not being able to evolve at all seems pretty vicious to me, especially since Makuhita is such an incredibly useless and hard-to-train Pokemon on its own.
I'll probably accept that as one of my backups, to be used if a main Pokemon dies before Winona.
EDIT: In that case, I guess I'll keep Makuhita as one of my mains. But could you give me some sort of backdoor to allow it evolve somehow? Otherwise, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna end up not training Makuhita at all if it has an unevolvable HP.
