Can I say evolution hypothesis? It sounds awful!!

Follow-up (or update) assumption ; case for follow-up (or update)
Explanation:
This is definitely a translation problem! And I wish you'd given us more context, so I could figure out which of a number of possibilities to offer you. Lacking that, here is the whole kit and kaboodle:

(1) "Évolution"

In most contexts, this means "follow-up"--and this is how Termium classifies it---see the note at the end of this long list:

"evolutionary hypothesis"


Explanation:
Sometimes changing a source-langugage noun into a target-language adjective better conveys the meaning of the original.

Hope this helps! :-)
