For those that grew up on the first gen, what do you think of the new Pokemon?

I think they're terrible looking in design and no where near as good as it all once was. Nostalgia? I'm not sure but for people who do disagree and do say it's nostalgia, I only wanna hear opinions from people who grew up with the first gen and played it religiously like we all did back in the day.

This is the best gen so far.

I think the designs have only improved as GameFreak have run out of obvious creatures to use as inspiration.

IMO, Gen I, II, IV and VI have amazing Pokémon, Gen V has very good Pokémon, and Gen III has the highest concentration of terrible Pokémon (still a few good ones though). Gen III was the low point in the series for me, I've never seen any sort of decline over time despite how attached I was to the first two gens as a kid.

I've liked every single gen up until this one in terms of Pokemon designs. I like maybe 1/3 of them.

I think they're a fine addition, but I don't think there's any one gen that stands out as having particularly good or bad Pokemon.

I really enjoy a lot of the original pokemon. I'm very excited about the new games, though I don't like most of the mega evolutions.

Just because I grew up with the ols games does not mean im oblivious to see that rhis game has some really great designs.

I grew up with Red (soon Gold).
I don't think designs meant anything to me then.

When I saw these..........Suddenly, it did.

Then again, I remember seeing Braviary and liking it's design, while being relatively indifferent to some of Gen 5. Oddly, there were still none I really hated.

Then Gen 6....and I said most of these I wouldn't catch.
