Voltorb is not a uncreative design.

It's a very common misconception that Voltorb isn't very creative. Voltorb mimics Pokeballs, that world's treasure chests. It's a simple "treasure chest monster" more than uncreative when one remembers Pokemon is a RPG.

That's neat and all... but visually, based purely on looks, it's design is uncreative.

Yes, this argument has presented many times, however, Nintendo/GF treat it as a joke design instead of a serious design based off the mimic, which makes it far more "uncreative" "lackluster" or pure comical as a design.

At least Vanilluxe line isn't actually just ice cream, stalacmite/tite that looks like ice cream is pretty creative.

Calling Voltorb uncreative is literally calling all of Pokemon uncreative. The Pokeball is a creation designed for the series, and Voltorb is the living embodiment of that design. Is the Pokeball also uncreative?

saying voltorb isn't uncreative is like saying the pacific ocean isn't wet.

Well... let's be honest here... it's a ball. You can't really do much with it.

Voltorb is a haunter trapped in a pokeball.
There is no button so he cannot escape, so he explodes in anger.

That's not even the same thing at all.

The concept of a capturing device is certainly not creative, there have been many monster breeder capture devices in many games, a ball is just a symbol of similar capture devices, and Voltorb is a mock/pun design based off of mimic/Poke'ball.


Even worse is it's evolution which is literally like a beachball, it could have changed colors to represent other Poke'balls to fit with the design, but they didn't which makes it more confusing as to why they didn't. (for Electrode I mean)

I thought it was just Tigerjackson that spewed random fan theories that have no actual evidence.
