The Pokémon Evolutionaries is a YouTube channel created in 2014 by Professor K (Kris) and N (Noel) with the sole purpose of having fun and providing viewers with an online resource for Pokémon trading card game information, pack openings, deck profiles, matches and much more. The channel quickly grew into a full time commitment, which is when they hired Kevin Krust to come aboard as an executive producer, graphic designer and manager. The Evolutionaries team works around the clock to produce daily content that is fun to make and fun to watch.
Kris (Professor K) has been a certified member of the Pokémon Professor Program since May of 2014. His experience with the trading card game dates back to Summer 1999, where he casually attended the league at his local book store. After a twelve year hiatus, Kris returned to the trading card game as a way of coping with the loss of his father. Since his return to the game, he has judged a wide variety of events as small as league challenges and as extensive as the regional championships in Orlando, Florida (2014/15/16).

Noel (N) has been an active member of the Pokémon Trading Card Game community since January 2014. After a theme deck battle with his step father, Kris (Professor K), the two of them decided to use their extensive knowledge of the trading card game to start a YouTube channel. Noel originally pitched the name PokéPunks for their channel, though the name didn't stick. Since then, he has started many inside jokes on the channel such as the Sparkle Army, Primal Fish and the Bianca Pillow, as well as starting his own YouTube channel (Magician's Descendant) about the Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card Game.
