Voltorb -> Electrode was, and still is, the laziest evo of all time.

Wow, a Poke Ball Pokemon (Voltorb) turned over (Electrode).

Gen I. was no excuse. It was just pure laziness.

But they gave it that awesome grin.

Clearly nobody remembers what the voltorb line was based on. Oh well, electrode is still my fave electric poke of all time :)

This. Ignore the color swap, and realize that the facial features are TOTALLY different.

Something like Magneton on the other hand...

They could at least have made him into an Ultra Ball or something.

Being based on a mimic does not make it's design creative, only it's concept. The design itself still sucks. Amongous is a creative mimic.

This would have been awesome. Except Electrode could be a Great Ball and then MegaElectrode could be an Ultra Ball.

I love how pokemon fans on the internet can find the most arbitrary things to complain about.

Mimic monsters are lazy designs too.
