It always seems like everybody is either hating on Gen 1s designs or overrating them IMO i made this topic to hopefully see what everybody thinks

Even though I like some of the Pokemon from gen 1, I'd just as soon rather have the whole gen not exist.

If we did start with Gen 2, the original 151 would still exist. I think you forgot that most, if not all, Gen 1 Pokemon were in GSC.

Some of my favorite pokemon are from gen 1. I don't think we'd have Dragon pokemon if gen 1 didn't exist in the first place, and Dragonite is one of my favorites.

My all time fave is from gen 1. But all gens are always a mixed bag for me. There are designs I don't fin appealing, Not that I hate them, though.

I could care less about gen 1 because I didn't know pokémon was a video game until I was at least like 11 and that was like 2009, but obviously if there was no gen 1 there would be no gen 2.
It's not about which is better, it's about stacking new blocks on top each gen to improve the games.

So let us see the eliminated selection.

Including babies that turn into Gen 1 Pokémon.

If gen one doesn't exist say goodbye to:

Eeveelutions---9 Pokémon (included Sylveon)
Elekid line---3
Magby Line---3
Smoochum Line---2
Rhyhorn Line---3
Pichu Line---3
Slowpoke Line---3
Aerodactyl- 1
Abra-3
Machop-3
etc

...you kill a lot of Pokémon in the end.

The Kanto part of GSC would've been even worse if we started with Gen 2. Fighting Red and all that was a lot better with Gen 1 nostalgia backing it up.
