Gamefreak should have a Pokemon design contest.

Would get us cool types like electric/dark and fire/water. The Pokemon would look good to most people, as the people could vote for them. Gone with rubbish like Trubbish.

Definitely not. Fakemon are already terrifying enough as it is without making them canon.

I think it would be nice if a few Pokemon and their Evolution lines were fan-made, but I highly doubt GF would choose some freaky looking BS. Also, people would probably try to do better, if it was official.

Gamefreak should just stop making more imaginative Pokemon and just make ones that look cool to you personally.

I would really like this.
I feel like many people underestimate fakemon because many of them are created by like 5 year olds that just make a shape and give it some nonsensical name.
I, myself make fakemon and have gotten great feedback on them.

I've seen many other great artists have great fakemon. With a game as large as Pokemon having a contest like this, there would be countless entries so undoubtedly, there would be some great entries. I would totally approve of this as long as there were only like 1 or 2 pokemon or evolution lines for it.

Gizmodo has that slightly out of place charm that most Steel types have.

And Zraco looks like Derpnite 2.

They're decent. Better than most. I wouldn't use them personally.

Don't take it like I'm trying to start something, but what steel types besides Aggron have an actual charm?
I'm just trying to show that if a 15 year old can make some decent fakemon then a professional artist interested in Pokemon could surely make some great entries.

Scizor, Aggron, Mawile, Lucario, Jirachi, and Coballion don't look weird.

Kling, Bonzor, and your dinosaur look ugly as do the rest of steel types. It is a personal choice. I did say personally. I like rounded, and smooth lines versus sharp angles, and such. I know because they're steel, and not supposed to be fluid.

Zraco just doesn't look cool to me. He's a dragonite that ate Snorlax.

They're not bad, but I've have better tea.
