I actually like it. If the other poster is correct about the pixel-art influence, the whole evolutionary line could have a symbolism to it. In the case of Spewpa to Vivillon it could symbolise a breaking free of the limitiations of pixel art, to the greater freedom of expression offered by cel-shaded 3D art.
I am yet to figure out the possible symbolism of the evolution of Scatterbug to Spewpa. --- Looking forward to Pokemon X and Y. White FC: 0862-2660-4156 / 3DS FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 4556-7836-2644
He's right though, the design is an early bug, and for what it is, it looks different enough from the other early bugs. I don't see a sign of laziness with the design. At all.
As for copying from Larvesta based on the body hair, wow. It was a head too. I guess it's copying from Caterpie.<_< --- Currently playing: Pokemon Platinum(493/493 now a 3 Star Trainer!), Street Fighter 3(Xbox online), Rocket Knight Adventures(Sega Genesis)
