While most of those are indeed awesome (I see you really like blue, it's my favorite color as well), Heatmor's shiny form laughs at all of those except maybe Rayquaza. Heatmor does what Charizard's shiny form tries to do, but does it right, not looking an off-purple like Shiny form does. Heatmor's shiny form also makes all those ridiculous car parts suddenly work in the design. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
This is why Volcarona wins the design debate with me.
Volcarona is based on a moth, particularly the Atlas moth or Cecropia Moth. Conceptually, it seems to be derived from the phrase "like a moth to a flame," which refers to the observed positive phototaxis demonstrated by moths. It may be based on a solar deity, a type of god said to be able to control various aspects of the sun such as sunrise, sunset, eclipses, position, etc, the black spots on its wings representing dark spots on the sun. Its wings may be based on the petals of a tiger lily, having the same number of extensions, black spots, and red-orange coloring. The head and antennae of Volcarona bear a resemblance to the headpiece of Hathor, which depicts the horns of the goddess cradling a disk representing the sun in between. Volcarona's appearance may also be loosely based on that of a seraph, a type of angel that is often associated with fire, as its name literally translates to "burning one". Like Volcarona, seraphim are often depicted with six red wings and no legs. Its color scheme is very similar to some incarnations of Mothra.
How interesting and detailed.
And then there's...
Charizard resembles the European dragon, certainly one of many forms told and rendered in legends.
Unimaginative and bland.
This is why there are lots of people that like Volcarona's design and mythos. I know you disagree but you shouldn't state "Volcarona's design sucks" like it's an obvious fact--it's inherently your subjective opinion.
I also wonder why this topic is necessary. --- In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
