I honestly don't care enough to judge every single design. There are animals that I don't like in real life, however for the most part, I am just indifferent to most designs as well as animals. I would have chosen bacon because I have named at least one thing Bacon since generation 4 (usually not a pig either), but Other seemed like a fun choice. :p
That being said, my favorite Pokemon designs tend to be some of the bizarre ones. I've never skipped a generation before because of one or two that I don't like.
Also, obligatory "effect is a noun and affect is a verb" statement.
