First-ever Cross Evolution Tournament [Round 2]

Cross Evo Tournament
Cross Evolution is a thrilling new(ish) metagame where... believe it or not... you cross evolutions!! For those unfamiliar with the metagame, Stage 1 and 2 Pokemon are given the option to "evolve" into Stage 2 and 3 Pokemon, respectively. All changes in stats, weight, and typing are conveyed during this evolution. Furthermore, each cross-evolved mon can steal 2 moves from the movepool of whatever it is evolving into.

Still confused? Here's a quick example:
Klang is a Stage 2 that can evolve into a Stage 3, so it can "cross-evolve" with a Stage 3 Pokémon such as Gallade. Gallade has +30 HP, +90 Attack, +30 Defense, equal Special Attack, +60 Special Defense and +30 Speed than Kirlia. Its abilities are Steadfast and Justified, and has access to Close Combat and Knock Off. It also gains a secondary Fighting type. As a result:

Gallade (Klang) @ Lum Berry
Ability: Justified
New Stats: 90/170/125/70/145/80
New typing: Steel/Fighting
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Shift Gear
- Gear Grind
- Close Combat
- Knock Off
Klang has now access to two extra moves to balance its horrendous natural movepool. Steel-type grants it a lot of set-up opportunities, aided by a 90/125/145 bulk and a monstrous Attack to wreak havoc.

Rules:​

  • Ubers banlist and clauses + Evolutionary clause: this prevents two or more Pokemon on a team from cross-evolving with the same Pokémon. OU's Baton Pass clause is in effect as well. You cannot have more than one Pokémon with the move Baton Pass and you can't pass Speed and other stats simultaneously.
  • You can "cross-evolve" your Pokemon by naming them after the intended Pokemon. So for example you nickname your Pontya "Dugtrio," giving it +25 HP, +25 Attack, +25 Defense, +15 Special Attack, +25 Special Defense, and +25 Speed, and access to Sand Veil, Arena Trap, and Sand Force.
  • Evolution is limited so that Stage 1, 2, and 3 are matched accordingly. Ponyta is a Stage 1 Pokemon and can evolve into any Stage 2 but it cannot evolve into a Stage 3, so you couldn't name it Venusaur or Charizard, but you can name it Ivysaur or Charmeleon. Same goes for Ivysaur not having access to Dugtrio, but it does has access to Alakazam and Gengar.
  • Cross-evolving with Shedinja (Wonder Guard. The ban does not include Ninjask, which is legal) is banned. Further bans will be considered if needed as the metagame evolves.
  • Pokémon that cannot evolve cannot cross-evolve either.
  • Using an evolutionary line with a Pokémon with a mega won't give you access to the respective Mega Stone, signature items (Thick Club, Light Ball) or Eviolite.
  • Cross-evolved Pokémon get the abilities from the line they chose. So for example, crossing Haunter with Alakazam, you get Inner Focus, Magic Guard or Synchronize as possible abilities.
  • However, getting Huge Power, Pure Power and Shadow Tag via cross-evolution is banned.
  • You can't go over base 255 or under 1 on any stat. Combinations that produce Pokémon with negative base stats or over 255 are banned.

Does the change in typing occur when the Stage 2 has a different typing than the stage 1 (example would be Chimchar into Monferno) or does the Pokémon simply get a typing based on what the Stage it wishes to evolve into is?

Changes in primary typing (ie Eevee to Espeon) completely change the cross evolutions type. Changes in secondary typing (chimchar to monferno) change the second typing. So, tangela x monferno would be grass/fighting type, and chinchou x monferno would be a water/fighting type.

Changes in primary type change the primary typing. So if the base is mono-typed, then yes, it changes the whole typing. But if the base is dual-typed, it only changes primary, so using your examples, tangela x espeon is pure psychic, and chinchou x espeon is a psychic/electric type.
