Is their a general concensus that Pokemon design has been in decline since G2?

I actually love gen 5 and all of its call-backs to gen 1.

I thought a lot of gen 3 was weak compared to the first two, stopped playing after that so can't comment on 4,5 and 6.

My faves had to be Gen 2, 3, and 5 so far.

Then again, I like simple, yet creative designs, like Girafarig, Reuniclus, and Gardevoir (say what you will, it is pretty simple), or Meganium, Whimsicott, and Snivy.

Doesn't stop me from liking the more complex of course.

That is my opinion.

Well, I think all subsequent gens are worse than 2, I guess I don't think it's gotten worse every time though. In fact, the opposite, Gen 3 was just much worse than 2, and it's been climbing back up since. Looks like 6 will be a step down again though.

There are good and bad designs in every generation

Every generation has bad designs, but c'mon, a lot of the modern ones seem to have more bad designs, or uninspired ones, or ones that just plain don't make sense.

If the word modern wasn't in there, I would think you were referring to Gen 1. A living icicle makes about as much sense as a living rock to me, and living trashbags makes about as much sense as living sludge.

Gen 1 set a precedent for having weird designs, if other gens didn't follow it, it would make things like Voltorb and Magnemite look out of place.

4 was brilliant. 5 was a joke. 6 looks cool.

This.

Also, Gen 5 was called a reboot. It made sense for it to have a bunch of Pokemon similar I earlier gens.

No, there's no consensus.
