Your Opinion: Gen 4 evolutions for older Pokemon

#1Jack_the_monke7Posted 7/27/2013 10:40:13 PM
So gen 4 added a lot of evolutions for older Pokemon from gens 1-3 and they have gotten a lot of mixed reactions from different people. So how did you feel about each of them? For reference, they are:

Ambipom
Mismagius
Honchkrow
Weavile
Magnezone
Lickilicky
Rhyperior
Tangrowth
Electivire
Magmortar
Togekiss
Yanmega
Leafeon
Glaceon
Gliscor
Mamoswine
Porygon-Z
Gallade
Probopass
Dusknoir
Froslass
Roserade

I'll post more in-depth later, but overall I'd say

Bad:
Ambipom, Rhyperior, Tangrowth, Magmortar, Mamoswine, Probopass

Neutral:
Mismagius, Honchkrow, Weavile, Lickilicky, Electivire, Leafeon, Glaceon, Porygon-Z, Gallade, Dusknoir, Froslass, Roserade

Good:
Magnezone, Togekiss, Yanmega, Gliscor

I liked Weavile, Gallade, Roserade, and Gliscor...

All the others were either bad or didn't improve much...

Most were pretty bad, IMO. The only ones I liked we're Togekiss, Gallade, Porygon-Z and Magmortar (screw the haters, Magmortar master race).

I hope that if they're doing any other evos or prevos of older Pokemon other than Sylveon that they are of a higher quality than Gen 4's new evos. Gen 6's designs have me pretty confident in that so far.

I actually like most of them, especially Weavile and Porygon-Z. The only ones I don't like are Electivire, Magmortar, and Ryperior.

I liked all of them except Rhyperior. Don't hate it, just think Rhydon didn't need to evolve.

So I'm still waiting for Daisy to reappear in something that's not a spinoff.
I'll probably end up dying first or something but optimism is fun.

Ambipom - I'm indifferent.
Mismagius - Although I've not used one, I would like to at some point.
Honchkrow - Looks decent but I'm not planning on using one anytime soon.
Weavile - Like. I like Sneasel but I like Weavile even more. It's fast and strong in-game.
Magnezone - It looks great but to tell you the truth, I haven't used one properly yet so I don't know how good it is in battle.
Lickilicky - It's okay. I've used one in Platinum but I don't think it was to powerful.
Rhyperior - Slow and not too great looking, but it seems powerful and defensive.
Tangrowth - Never used one. I'm interested in using at some point (same for all Pokemon) but I still prefer Tangela over it.
Electivire - Cool Pokemon but I don't think it Electabuzz needed an evolution. Same with Magmar.
Magmortar - Look at Electivire.
Togekiss - Haven't used one properly but I like Togepi more than Togetic and Togekiss.
Yanmega - Yanma was great but Yanma is better.
Leafeon - I like all the Eeveelutions (including Sylveon).
Glaceon - Look at Leafeon.
Gliscor - I may prefer Gligar but Gliscor looks more BA in my opinion.
Mamoswine - Not used one but it does look interesting to use.
Porygon-Z - Like it.
Gallade - I personally prefer Gardevoir but I still like Gallade a lot.
Probopass - One of me least favourite Pokemon (I like all Pokemon though).
Dusknoir - Interesting.
Froslass - Is equally awesome as Glalie (did I spell the name right?)
Roserade - I don't mind it.

Bad:
Electivire- It looks like a big, ugly... yeti? An electric yeti?
Lickilicky- Take an already lame Pokemon, make it fat, give it an ugly curl, and give it the derpiest face ever.
Probopass- It's like they were trying to make the worst design possible.
Rhyperior- Needs no explanation. Rhydon did not need an evo, period.

Neutral:
Ambipom- Don't really like Ambipom, but it's an improvement over Aipom, and it needed an evo.
Gliscor- Pretty much the same as Ambipom.
Magmortar- Don't really get the hate. Not my favorite, but it certainly looks cooler than Magmar.
Magnezone- Eh. Magneton might be a lazy design, but Magnezone just looks kind of awkward.
Mamoswine- Not really my favorite, but it's quite an improvement over Piloswine.
Tangrowth- At least it's better than Tangela...
Yanmega- It's okay. Can't say whether it's better or worse looking than Yanma, though it needed an evo.

Good:
Dusknoir- Such an improvement over Dusclops.
Froslass- To say she's an improvement over Snorunt and Glalie is a huge understatement.
Gallade- Gardevoir is one of my favorites, but Gallade makes a perfect counterpart.
Glaceon- Great design, like most Eeveelutions. I just wish it were available more easily.
Honchkrow- Take Murkrow, make it a mob boss and give it a stylish hat.
Leafeon- Finally, a Grass type Eeveelution, and another great design.
Mismagius- Evo to my favorite Pokemon, and she looks cool. She's got a witch's hat and robes!
Porygon-Z- I like the idea of a "corrupted" Porygon that was inflicted with a virus.
Roserade- Roselia gets a cape and a cool hairdo.
Togekiss- Togetic has always been rather underwhelming, but Togekiss was quite the improvement.
Weavile- Sneasel was never my favorite, but Weavile made it look much cooler.
