I think I automatically get more authority in deciding which of the new Pokémon designs are good or bad, because I'm the only one who has to draw them all.



And I say Rowlet is the best of the lot.

but the ones that have been "easiest" have been the creative and interesting ones that I can lose myself in and have fun drawing. The boring ones (like Voltorb) are a slog.

I read this thread and agree the chunky plastic toy look of Pokémon has been recently altering, catering now to Digimon fans by utilizing a semi-Shin Megami Tensei splicing and it's disturbing to my childhood and I hate things that change.

Ugly Pokémon are nothing new. But the percentage seems to be increasing with every new game. :-P

Most Pokemon change at least once, and often twice.

All Pokémon has always been bad since it began and it will never stop being bad. Now if you'll excuse me I have to play through Sonic Chaos again.

Buzzwole's unsettling design is offset by the fact that it has one of the best Pokemon names ever.

I honestly think Gen VII is one of the best, design-wise. I'd put it just below Gens I and V. I'd complain about this thread but at least FL saw how great Mimikyu is.

I'm glad there's some Grubbin Positivity in this thread.

I turned around on Buzzwole a bit when I noticed its tiny shitty face. It is totally wild that the singular, only mosquito pokemon is jacked as hell with engorged blood sacs for muscles.

Side note: there's only one ant pokemon and it's boring as hell. They need to get on that.

Gen VII is the outstanding best gen for design in the sense that every single Pokemon was designed with attention to how it would function as a real organism in a working ecosystem and how it would interact with human beings in contexts outside of combat. Gen I Pokemon might look cool, but the vast majority of them have had to have natural histories retconned onto them because the original concept was "it's a horse, but, like, on fire" or similar - designed to be interesting fighting monsters, but not very imaginative as animal-substitutes in a fleshed-out world.

So, like, you can argue game mechanics and plain appeal, but in terms of worldbuilding, yeah Gen VII blows previous Pokedexes out of the water.

There have always been dumb pokemon. But I have to admit I was sad when my cute kitty cat transformed into a hairy pro wrestler.
