With all that sad, I guess I'll vote Gen 1.
There's a difference between bad and uncreative. Gen 1 has a few uncreative designs (mostly evos) but they still look decent while Gen 4 and 5 have far more complex but often ugly designs. Gen 2 and 3 are in the middle of the road and are imo the best.
My thoughts exactly.
Gen 4, no excuse for some of those evolutions
"wow street lights and benches. if those don't make it a sequel than i don't know what will" - G-Scythe
Generation 4, of course. "god pokemon" is the stupidest idea ever.
The most powerful army, in, HISTORY.

Nah gen 5 has more original Pokemon. Gen 4 has more rehashed stuff.
Magneton evo, magmar evo, electabuzz evo, rhydon evo, lickitung evo, gligar evo, snorlax pre-evo, dusclops evo. Yup very creative.
This is a sig. Yup.

Yep. I think Kricketune (sp?), Wormadam, Spiritomb, Snover and Probopass are ugly as sin, but are pretty creative in design/concept. My favorite pokemon from gen 1, Lapras, is just the loch ness monster with a shell. Gen 1 had some good designs, but not that much creativity.

Skarmory would slap the hell outta you
I knew everyone would be saying Gen 1.
Okay, you've got your Grimers, your Voltorbs, your Seels, Digletts and Manemites.
Think about these ones: both Nidoran lines. They have rough similarities to some real creatures, but are really quite unique. You don't really see any original monsters anymore - most everything resembles an existing animal / object / etc, excluding legendaries.
Onix. Looks simple, but a rock snake? Nowadays they'd just make a snake that closer fits a conventional view of a snake like Grass. It's a snake, but with a unique twist.
Slowpoke and Slowbro. Mildly hippo-like but pretty unique. With Psychic powers? A Shellder clamped on its tail? Again, has quite a degree of originality.
Abra line, Jigglypuff line, Clefairy line, the Hitmons: being based on styles of fighting rather than an identifiable creature / whatever.
Fat, hypnotic tapirs. Psychic coconut trees. Unidentifiable, dinosaur-like creature wearing and using bones. Electabuzz. Magmar.
I think people got a bit too carried away using Gen 1 as a defense against people who said Gen 5 was crap and running out of ideas, that they forget to look at the ones that ARE creative. Every gen has some creative ones, and some simplistic ones. I feel Gen 4 is the most simplistic - and that most original creations (i.e. legendaries) are a bit ugly.
Gen 2. A relatively small elephant that rolls into a ball at high speed? Uncreative my butt.
Togepi / tic. Xatu. A tsuchinoko Pokémon. Wobbuffet. Skarmory. Sneasel. Shouldn't have to explain these.
Gen 3 is flavour of the year, and thus god's gift to man, so no point going here.
Gen 4. A lot of previous gen evolved forms. Those that aren't are mostly quite straightforward designs. There are still some good unique ones however. Bronzor/zong, Spiritomb, Torterra off the top of my head.
