They look like Muppet versions of The Thing and Iceman if they took martial arts lessons.
confirmed for mvc4
@ Your "genie" comment: You do realize not everyone is probably well versed in Japanese lore, right? They might have no clue what the hell a"kami" is, and to be fair, they do kinda look like genies(Humanoid upper body with a wispy/cloudy lower body)
All three are spiky bipedal rhinos that are classified as the Drill Pokemon.
Nidoking and Nidoqueen look similar because they were gendered Pokemon in a genderless game. Rhydon looks nothing like them, he is way bulkier with much shorter limbs, not to mention that he isn't even bipedal.
Did you just confuse Rhydon with Rhyhorn??? --- http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq303/CharizardFire6/Char-Brawl.gif The official Charizard of the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 boards.
I typed kami trio at first. And even went as far as typing the three names, and decided **** it, just put genie because that's what everybody knows them as, for some reason
Anyway, nobody after the first page seems to get what i'm coming at. I'M FINE WITH THEIR DESIGN AND SIMPLE RECOLOURATION. I just feel weirded out by their FACES that appear more youkai-ish than Pokemon-ish, just like a lot other Pokemon from even genI and genII like Jynx
