Gen 4's evolutions of older Pokemon get unwarranted hate

#1Dark World RulerPosted 1/13/2013 10:32:34 PM(edited)
I always hear people saying how Gen 4 "ruined" some older Pokemon with the evolutions they received and I just dont see it

Magmortar
Magnezone
Electivire
Mamoswine
Rhyperior
Leafeon
Weavile
Gliscor
Yanmega

And so on all look great, yet you get one that's "WTF" like Lickilicky or just one that is underwhelming like Tangrowth, then all of the sudden the haters deem them all bad?

I know. Is improving old pokemon really a flaw?

Magmortar, Ambipom and Rhyperior were pretty bad. Everything else either improved the base Pokemon, or left certain weird ones just as weird (Tangrowth, Lickilicky, Probopass)

That's how I see it too. It's not about appearances, but helping the Pokemon line perform better and have a real presence in battle. I always enjoy evolutions of older-gen Pokemon just for that reason.

Magnezone

This is most definitely NOT ruined, it's a ROBOT pokemon for goodness' sake!

Honchkrow is so boss, no reason to hate that.

I was once in a topic where someone admitted that they saw the little circles on Magnezone's upper plates as eyes, and its center eye as a mouth. When it was pointed out that this was not, in fact, the way Magnezone was designed, suddenly he liked Magnezone a lot more. Hmm...

Magmortar - Disgusting
Magnezone - Ugly
Electivire -Yes, actually good
Mamoswine - Disgusting
Rhyperior - Ugly
Leafeon - Cute
Weavile - Sneasel was better
Gliscor - Pretty good
Yanmega - Pretty good

And so on all look great, yet you get one that's "WTF" like Lickilicky or just one that is underwhelming like Tangrowth, then all of the sudden the haters deem them all bad?


Most of them look really really bad to me.

Magmortar is uglier than sin. Probably the worst of all these evolutions.

Magnezone is pretty cool. Looks more creative than Magneton.

Electivire is pretty cool too.

Mamoswine is decent. He looks better than the first two stages, that's fore sure.

Rhyperior looks stupid, and Rhydon looked so cool too.

Leafeon is cool.

Glaceon is cool.

Weavile is good.

Gliscor isn't bad.

Yanmega is good.

Tangrowth is REALLY stupid looking.....then again I never cared for Tangela either.

Lickilicky is stupid.

Honchkrow is cool.

Togekiss is meh, though I never cared for Togekiss either.

Gallade is awesome.

Ambipom is stupid.

Porygon-Z was meh.

Most of them aren't bad, but then you have terrible ones like Magmortar and Tangrowth.
