There are also cases where Pokemon have multiple evolution forms, and we need to know WHICH evolved form it is becoming. Example: Three of Eevee's possible evolutions - Espeon, Umbreon, and Sylveon - require having a high friendship (in this game generation). I did not know that they changed Sylveon's evolution method from high happiness level to high friendship level until I accidentally evolved my first Eevee into a Sylveon when I was going for an Espeon.

Because the evolution animation got shorter, I did not know what Eevee was evolving into until AFTER the evolution animation scene was finished. I liked it better when I could tell what form a Pokemon was evolving into DURING the evolution animation where I could still press the 'B' button to cancel the evolution incase it was not the form I was going for.
While that's true, there are really just a few niche cases where that's possible, and all of those cases (off the top of my head: Wrumple, Tyrogue and now Eevee) should have their Evolution Methods changed, anyway.

for the case with eevee into sylveon, its mainly because of the changes with affection and happiness. previously, they were seperate, but now they are tied together, so Sylveon evolves with happiness now.

I know about that already, which was why I pointed this out.

I think its a callback to the gen 1-2 animation. I remember 3 and later being slow on purpose

I've heard of people clamoring for some ridiculous nonsense like Safari Zones (more like RNG Zones) or Game Corners (more like RNG Corners) to come back to the franchise but this is the first time I've heard someone want a wait period to be longer.
As someone who loves casinos in games, I resent the notion that wanting the Game Corner to return is ridiculous nonsense.
