Let's post the usual new gen complaints here.

Really, every generation has the ones that are cool, the ones that are weird, the ones that are cute, and the ones that are just there or different or whatever. It's not like one generation is objectively better than all the rest design-wise, it's all up to opinion.

I'm sure I'll find just as many designs I like out of this one. :3

I wonder if people were whining about having to buy a DS or a GBA.

There's one in there I forgot about (and it's pretty funny): "They don't even look like pokemon!"

I don't complain because:
New pokemon games > No new pokemon games

I still play pokemon games and I will likely play the new ones, but it's obvious that pokemon ideas are becoming recycled and the pokemon staff is becoming far less original. Part of this is because ideas are running out and another part is because it makes money to make the same game over again.

Pokemon are becoming unoriginal though; if not in design, then in game tactics. Look at my examples (the starred ones represent the closest resemblance to same type/species/idea). These pokemon relate either by species, appearance, type, the idea they represent to the game, or in evolution stages. I'll indicate each one.

Pidgey = Starly = Taillow = Pidove = Spearow (same idea: all easily obtainable birds; typing; Hoothoot may be an exception because it's nocturnal and that's its theme)
Rattata = Patrat (idea)
Purrloin = Glameow (species)
* Pansear = Chimcar (idea/species/type)
Grimer = Trubbish (idea/species is close too)
Munna = Drowzee (idea/type/evolution)
Roggenrola = Geodude (idea/type/evolution)
Drilbur = Diglett (idea/type/species is close)
Timbur = Machop (idea/type/evolution)
Tympole = Poliwag (idea/type) = Froakie (idea/type) = Toxicroak (species)
Throh/Sawk = Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee (type/idea)
Petilil = Oddish forms = Roselia (type/idea)
Basculin is a basic version of fish pokemon without an evo (idea/species)
Sandile = Totodile (species)
Darumaka = Primeape (species)
* Darumaka = Pansear = Chimcar (idea/type)
* Maractus = Cacnea
Sigilyph = Xatu (type/idea)
Tirtouga = Squirtle (type/idea) = Turtwig (species)
* fossil = fossil = fossil
Gothita closely resembles the Gardevoir chain
Ducklett = Psyduck (idea/type)
Swanna = Pelipper (type/idea)
Sawbuck = Stantler (both normal types/species) = new X pokemon (species)
Emolga = Pikachu = Pachirisu = Plusle/Minun (all made for cuteness and marketing value)
Foongus = Paras (typing/evolution/species is close enough/idea)
Frillish=Tentacool (species, though they do have different typings which make them less repetitive than others)
Joltik = Spinarak (species)
Ferrothorn = Forretress (idea)
Haxorus = Garchomp = Salamence = Dragonite (typical every gen dragon idea)
Cryogonal = Glalie (typing/idea)
Shelmet = Shellder = Clamperl (somewhat same idea, but certainly true for the last two)
Bouffalant = Tauros (typing/idea/species different but close enough if you consider cross-species evolution as pokemon does)
Heatmor = Torkoal (typing/appearence)
dragon legendaries = dragon legendaries (enough said)
Spheal = Seel (typing/species)
* Vulpix = new Fennec fox (typing/idea) = Zorua (species)
Wurmple = Caterpie/Weedle (idea/typing and evolution if you count Wurmple's split evo)
Skitty = Meowth (species/type)
Sableye = Spiritomb (type/idea)
Aggron = Rhydon (appearence)
Grumpig = Emboar (species)
* Seviper = Arbok (typing/different snakes but still close enough) = Snivy (all snakes)
Corphish = Krabby (typing/evolution/appearence close/species)
Feebas = Magikarp (evolution/both basic fish/water type)
Delibird = Piplup (species)
Audino = Chansey (type/original evolution/idea)
Lillipup = Growlithe = Houndour = Snubull (species; typing between 2 of 4)
5th gen evolution monkeys = original Eeveelutions (different types, but same idea)
Oshawatt = Buizel (typing/species close enough)
Wigglytuff = Drifloon (both balloon pokemon)
Pinsir = Heracross (idea/evolution)
Voltorb = Foongus (idea: in-game pokeballs)
There's probably more, but this is enough.

On top of closely resembling pokemon, there are questionable pokemon that either ARGUABLY don't fit or have no use:
Delibird
Luvdisc
Unown
Lunatone
Solrock
Plusle (only for cuteness)
Minun (only for cuteness)
Mawhile (I like it, but what's the point?)
Nosepass/Probopass (?)
Dunsparce
Basculin
Alomomola
Crustle (?)
Vanilluxe (I like it, but why ice cream? Should they make all food pokemon now?)
Tauros (only because of Bouffalant Tauros is useless)
Stantler (Sawsbuck renders useless)
Cryogonal (Snorunt serves the purpose)
Multiple forms (merchandising scheme for Nintendo to make money)


Team Rocket = Team Magma/Aqua = Team Galactic = Team Plasma
Duo cover legends = duo cover legends

Delibird -- Has its gimmick in Present
Luvdisc -- Source of Heart Scales in Gen III
Unown -- 28 Forms, only learns Hidden Power
Lunatone -- A Double Battle pair with Solrock
Solrock -- A Double Battle pair with Lunatone
Plusle (only for cuteness) -- Plus/MInus with Minun
Minun (only for cuteness) -- Plus/Minus with Plusle
Mawile (I like it, but what's the point?) -- To add more Steel types?
Nosepass/Probopass (?) -- None
Dunsparce -- Serene Grace
Basculin -- Unova's fish
Alomomola -- Water-type tank
Crustle (?) -- Dwebble/Crustle? What's not normal? It's an evolution chain
Vanilluxe (I like it, but why ice cream? Should they make all food pokemon now?) (Why not?)
Tauros (only because of Bouffalant Tauros is useless) -- Tauros is older
Stantler (Sawsbuck renders useless) -- Stantler is older
Cryogonal (Snorunt serves the purpose) -- None
Multiple forms (merchandising scheme for Nintendo to make money) -- They have different competitive stats, and


Team Rocket = Team Magma/Aqua = Team Galactic = Team Plasma (Uh... the different evil teams are better than just 1)
Duo cover legends = duo cover legends (There's been trios since RSE, and having cover legendaries is not a bad deal)

Gen VI in 2013? I'll believe that when Iris becomes Champion!
#19Ku-Ri-BohPosted 1/9/2013 9:18:51 AM
You should list the ultra contradicting ones together, like

-This doesn't even look like a Pokemon game anymore
-It's still the same game since R/B
-The new designs are garbage fugly
-The new designs are too cool to be Pokemon
-The new designs are too simple and stupid
-The new designs are too complicated and overdesigned
-GenI Pokemon look more normal, like they belong in nature. New Pokemon should be based on those animals used in genI
-New Pokemon are just clones of genI like Timburr to Machop. They've run out of ideas. Now we have Vulpix 2.0
-Nothing new other than more quantity Pokemon and graphic changes?!
-There are too many new things and distractions!

Mawile is based on a Futakuchi-onna, a Japanese monster of a woman with a second mouth in her hair.
