Actually the ones that just don't look like Pokemon to me are

Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus. Even in their Therian Formes. I don't know, they look like youkai or something. I just can't link them to Pokemon but of course since they ARE, i'm not denying or insulting them, or even hating the entire "past 151" just because of these three

I'm fine with Incarnate's copy/pasted designs, since it has happened a lot before anyway. It's just their overall look or perhaps face.. Am i alone?

When I first saw the genies,I was like, "What is this I don't even..."

Then I actually loved it :)

I immediately loved genV from the get-go. This is different. I LIKE the genie's designs. Just that they don't feel Pokemon. They look like some awesomely designed youkai for different series (not hinting Digimon)

If you know me on this board, i'm one of the few who hates genwunners with passion

They look as much like Pokemon as Mewtwo does.

Mewtwo looks WAY different than a standard Pokemon design (Something like Pikachu), but he's regarded as one of the classics.

I think the problem is is that their faces look human. Even the new forms are basically slightly tweaked human heads on animal bodies.

For me it's Throh and Sawk. I can take Vanillish and Trubbish(Funnily enough I actually only disliked Trubbish and Garbador back before their english names were released because I couldn't tell what they were. Once I realized what they were, they grew on me), but Throh and Sawk just look out of place. They look like Muppet versions of The Thing and Iceman if they took martial arts lessons.

I'm strangely okay with Throh and Sawk. They look totally like Pokemon to me thx to Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee

While we're at it, up till today i still can't see Jynx as a Pokemon

I'll admit I scoffed a little at fifth gen. when it was first coming out. Didn't stop me from loving it once I actually got a copy though.

This. I'm surprised. Throh and Sawk imo fit perfectly into Pokemon.

Garbador
Swoobat
Druddigon
Archeops
Ducklet and Swanna
Cryogonal
Bouffalant
Heatmor

off the top of my head all look a little out of place or rather inconsistent with past designs. Not saying it's a bad thing or good thing. It is what it is.

I feel like with all the "ugly" looking new Pokes they tried to have like a million things going on in the design at once instead of utilizing something simpler yet appealing. I'M LOOKING AT YOU DRUDDIGON/GARBADOR.
