I'm glad they're keeping these legendaries designs simple.

In my opinion the 4th gen legendaries were pushing it. Fifth gen ones I just flat out laughed at. I actually find myself really liking these ones though. I'm talking about the version mascot legendaries of course, not all legendaries per gen.

What's more simple about these legendaries again?

I wouldn't exactly call them simple. But they're appealing regardless.

Yeah i have to agree, the designs this time around actually look very nice. Reshiram and Zekrom looked okay to the point of when they fused them into Kyurem, then it just looked unbelievably terrible.

Not necessarily simple but not so over-the-top.

the gen V legendragons were quite awesome. but the kami trio and the muskedeers were all kind of stupid. victini was cute though and genesect is pretty me. not bad, but not amazing. meloetta is somehow stupid.

That's mostly because they are STILL incomplete.

Only time will tell if we'll get the complete thing by X/Y, or not...

I noticed a trend in terms of design since the beginning.

2D games
Gameboys had very limited pixel display capability, so the designs had to be simple and to the point.

Gameboy Advance systems had much better capabilities, this is where designs started to get more complex and take more liberties

The Nintendo DS reached massive capability when it came to 2D sprites, so designs went wild, with complex details and absurd things everywhere

Now, we move to 3D, and it's not high-grade next-gen 3D, it's just simple 3D.
What happens? The designs get simple again.
This can already be seen from all revealed Pokemon.

I really hate the whole simple vs complex debate.

To me, if it just looks freaking cool, it's good in my book.

I will acknowledge that Xerneas and Yveltal do look simple though.
