Is it me or the starters looking worse each gen?

After Gen 4 each starter looks pretty normal/boring. Gen 6 is looking to uphold that.

How about we wait until we see their evolutions and movesets before we judge them?

I'm not really talking about the evolutions just the beginners. In Gen 5, Snivy was the only decent one in my opinion.

Serperior and Samurott were awesome looking IMO.

Emboar is a disgrace but that is beside the point.

Ok, now I guess I want to change this topic on how all of fire starters recently are unorginal/boring. Who in their right minds would get a fire/fighting 3 gen in a row? I'm pretty positive than Fenniken will either be a pure fire or something else.

Well in my opinion the first form of most of the starters looks pretty goofy, but they usually get cooler looking as they level up. I thought all of Gen V's starters looked really weird in their base forms, but really liked Samurott's and Serperior's designs (Emboar is still a disgrace). Same with Gen IV, but in that Gen I liked the final forms of all 3 starters.

Even in Gen II, which is my favorite, I concede that Totodile, Cyndaquil, and Chikorita all look pretty goofy, but they all look badass in their final evolutions. I think it's a matter of Gamefreak trying to make the starters' first forms look "cute" and then letting them progressively look cooler and more mature as they evolve.

I always judge Pokemon based on their full forms. The preevos IMO only serve to be cute(1st form) or to serve as a stepping stone to the potential a fully evolved Pokemon will have(2nd evos).

Based on what I think of the 1st forms...nah, I don't think they're getting worse.
