Not just Unown. We also have Delibird, Wobbuffet, and Smeargle.

Then we have several Pokemon that are introduced almost seemingly for the simple fact that they need to show off new mechanics, but aren't actually very good besides that. The baby Pokemon, Togepi as a two-fer, Aipom...


Togepi as a what, and Aipom?

If you like Pokemon that evolve, then you should be bothered by how Gen 2 had so many Pokemon that never evolved.


I didn't say I like pokemon who evolve, I was explaining what the point of baby pokemon is in the first place. Personally, I'm a little bothered but it's not that big a deal for me.


Except that every baby Pokemon except Togepi is the baby form of an existing Pokemon. They were there to show off a new mechanic.

I feel Togepi and Aipom are there as examples of Pokemon that are weak, and exist purely to show off a new Mechanic. Togepi is a baby (eggs) and evolves via happiness, while Aipom is there for Headbutt trees.

I hate Voltorb and Electrode.

One of the laziest Pokemon designs and executions in the game.


Fixed that for you.


That's a funny way to say Ditto, Wingull, Pelipper

The only bad design I can think of from Gen 2 is the Feraligatr line and Tyrogue

I'll give you Croconaw, but Totodile and Feraligatr? Seriously?

Alright about Togepi, but why Aipom for headbutts?

Aipom, Pineco, and Heracross were the "Headbutt tree exclusive" Pokemon.

I really like Unown, I just wish they actually did something creative with it, like perhaps make each form able to learn every move starting with its letter, instead of leaving it as one of the suckiest pokemon to date

Lexifox, I know generation 2 disappointed you, but could you please stop pretending that it was the only generation to do (insert thing you hate here)?

I mean just look at generation one for a second here:

Farfetch'd, Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan, Mr. Mime, Jynx, (Trading gimmicks, worthless in battle, or inferior compared to alternatives of the same type.)
Porygon (Game Corner Gimmick, useless in battle)
Ditto (One trick pony, worthless in battle.)
And if Pineco and Heracross are "gimmicks" for requiring you to search in unusual ways, then so are Chansey, Scyther, Pinsir, Tauros, and Kangaskan, (Safari gimmicks, as with headbutt, variying usefulness.)
Snorlax (Used as a broken bridge in-story.)


And I've only limited myself to the gen 1 gimmicks that don't evolve.

The alphabet is not an inanimate object.


But it's not an animate object either now is it?
