Gen V, despite the many Pokemon in Gen V I like, the worst additions from Gen V are:

Roggenrola and evolutions (cheap Geodude rehash), Woobat and Swoobat (cheap Zubat rehash), Timburr and Evolutions (cheap Machop rehash), Tympole and Evolutions (cheap Poliwag rehash), Cottonee (BORING), Maractus (cheap Cacnea and Cacturne rehash), Gothita and Evolutions (eww, we already have Jynx and Smoochum), Ducklett (BORING), Foongus Amoonguss *groan-inducing pun*, Klink and Evolutions , Tynamo and Evolutions (what, no Water type?), Stunfisk (again, no water type? Also really ugly), Vullaby and Mandibuzz (yes, because people want a vulture that wears diapers), Keldeo (f***ing bronies)


Most are designed to draw inspiration from Gen I, so if you like Gen I, you should like Gen V. In addition, Keldeo was most likely designed during Gen IV, which started in 2006 for Japan, much early than the MLP craze that gave rise to bronies...Your opinion, it's not very good, or rather, needs proper justification.

Gladwyn101, Roggenrola and its evos designs are great and it's not a cheap Geodude Rehash, same for Timburr and its evos. Roggenrola and its evos are based from stalagmites and not boulders like Geodude's line. Timburr and its evos are based from construction workers, not wrestlers like Machop's line. Gothita and its evos are based from a gothic lolita girl, not a ganguro girl like Jynx and Smoochum.

They all look original and not rehash. You, my friend, didn't even know their actual designs and simply say they looked cheap and rehash. >:(

I voted none.

From: gladwyn101 | #025
Tynamo and Evolutions (what, no Water type?)

Stunfisk (again, no water type? Also really ugly)


Dratini/Dragonair/Grimer found in water, but aren't Water-types? OH NOEZ. While we're at it, all Pokémon in the long grass should be Grass-type cuz reasons.

Where's the mixed bag option? Every gen had some good designs, some bad designs.

While Gen V may have had butt generators, ice cream, gears, and trash bags. It also had Hydreigon, Haxorus, Keldeo, Terrakion, Jellicent, Volcarona, and Excadrill

While Gen IV may have had some uninspiring legendaries, Probopass, and Magmortar. It also had Yanmega, Roserade, Darkrai, Giratina, Torterra, Floatzel, Gastrodon, etc.

While Gen III may have had Nosepass, Delcatty, Masquerain, and Castform. It also had Torkoal, Camerupt, Sharpedo, Kyogre, Breloom, Ninjask, and Rayquaza.

While Gen II may have had Dunsparce, Aipom, and Unown. It also had Steelix, Scizor, Sneasel, Heracross, Ho-oh, and Ariados.

While Gen 1 may have had Magneton, Dugtrio, Muk, and Electrode. It also had Gyarados, Rhydon, Mewtwo, Dragonite, Starmie, Venusaur, and Blastoise.

PS. I like everything I mentioned

Maybe "rehash" was the wrong word to use. I just think it seems boring to have one generation somewhat similar to another. When you look at Gen 1-4, there are clear distinctions that make them all feel different.

The problem with Gen 5 is that there are a lot of Pokemon that could've just been replaced with Pokemon from Gen 1 that serve the same purpose.

Gen 5 should've had less... "badly designed" Pokemon. I like Machop and evos just fine, I don't need a new Pokemon that serves the same archetype but is so ugly that my eyes bleed. And for the record, Gen I had a Machop assisting with making the foundation of a building.

An example of a Gen V replacement that would reduce redundancies; instead of Tympole and evos, which are unnecessarily similar to Poliwag and evos, we could've had a Pokemon line similar to leeches: Water/Bug Pokemon with moves like Leech Life, Mega Drain, Muddy Water, etc. Instead of Gothita and evos, we could've had a more wizard-like Pokemon with a long, flowing beard, and a stick or bone that it uses as a focus for curses and psychic abilities.

I'm not saying that I hate Gen V, because the Pokemon I do like more than make up for the ones I don't: ie: Snivy and evos, Liepard, Drilbur and Excadrill, Sandile and evos, Zorua and Zoroark, Minccino and Cinccino, Emolga, Joltik, Axew and evos, Mienfoo and Mienshao, Rufflet and Braviary.

Gen IV was horrid, it did its best to ruin the amazing atmosphere of Sinnoh.

I'm glad someone else likes Janeway. I thought she gets lots of hate.
