Leafeon: 8/10- if they were going to make a grass type evolution, this exactly what it should have looked like. It’s also pretty adorable. The only issue I have with it is its slightly too leafy.
Archeops: 7/10- I like it, I think it’s well designed for what it’s trying to portray
Rampardos: 6/10- While most of it’s body looks completely badass, the blue thing on the head and the spikes really ruin it for me.
Mawile: 3/10- I get that it’s based on a legend but that doesn’t keep it from being ugly and confusing as crap
Horsea: 9/10- Absolutely adorable. Puts the rest of it’s line to shame. I love it’s wings
Chandelure: 9/10- Great design, the only reason it’s not 10/10 is because it doesn’t completely blow me away. But manages to portray a ghost/fire type perfectly with that creepy blank expression
Porygon2: 8/10- I love the smoothed out design. My favorite in the line.
Weavile: 10/10- Another mustelid (weasel/otter/ferret family) that GF knocked out of the park. Sneasel had a slightly juvenile look to it, but Weavile gets rid of all of that to look completely and utterly badass. Weavile also blends into the line perfectly
Gallade- 8/10- I love it’s fierce warrior-type look. It blends into its line really well too
Gardevoir- 7/10- Same case with Archeops, I like it and it’s well designed, there’s just not much else to say
Black Kyurem: 1/10- I have no idea what GF was thinking with this. Maybe it was “let’s just throw a bunch of design ideas in a blender, and use whatever comes out”. Because that’s what it looks like. While Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem all have a rhyme and reason to them, Black Kyurem is just an overdesigned mess
Machamp: 3/10- Ugh another ugly abomination. Machoke looks so cool. It’s what a human-like fighting monster should look like. Machamp is just deformed. They gave it weird numbers of fingers, made it an uglier color, and added a random duck bill.
Scizor: 8/10- I’ve always found it a bit overrated, but I still like it. It sheds several of the mantis elements that I didn’t like about, adds a cool eye-like design to both pincers, and just has a very fighter-like design for a bug, that I do like
Deoxys: 5/10- I never really wanted a DNA pokemon, and I suppose it’s done alright. It’ does look like an alien, I just don’t think it’s design looks very nice.
Dialga: 6/10- Slightly overdesigned and it doesn’t look much like a dragon. But it does get points for portraying a steel reptile very well.
Garchomp: 3/10- This one’s flipped around a bit. It used to be 2/10. Then I saw it’s wings attached to it’s arms and went up to 6/10. Then I saw it’s backsprite and it went back to 3/10. Firstly, I think hammerhead sharks are one of the ugliest animals in existence. Second, I just don’t think merging a dragon with a shark looks very good
Excadrill: 9/10- Executes the mole concept so much better than Dugtrio does.
Clefable: 7/10- I like it. It’s a well designed alien/fairy thing.

Virizion: 7/10- I really like how graceful and kind it looks
Cobalion: 8/10- My favorite of the legendary ungulates. I love how noble and powerful it looks.
Ninetales: 6/10- Meh. It’s shiny form creeps they hell out of me, and it looks kind of arrogant to me. I like Vulpix MUCH more. That said, the design is simple and effective.
Starmie: 8/10- I think it’s a well designed evo for a starfish. Add a second star and give it a royal color scheme.
Arceus: 4/10- ugh, an overdesigned mess. It’s head is oddly shaped. And it has a bunch of random design elements that really just make it look worse.
Ledian: 10/10- I friggin love this thing’s design. It has this aviator-like look to it, while retaining it’s bug-type appearance.
Ariados: 7/10- Badass spider is badass. But nothing that really blows me away.
Banette: 6/10- I think they did a great job of making a pokemon look like an abandoned toy, but the spur for a tail and the part on the head don’t make much sense to me.
Aggron: 10/10- I feel like Aggron’s design is a spiritual successor to Tyranitar. It has that Dinosaur like appearance that Nidoking and Rhydon have, but then it has an awesome metal look to it as well.
Mightyena: 7/10- Looks more like a dog than a hyena if you ask me, but I think it gets the job done. Nothing special about it though.
Gyarados: 9/10- They wanted to make a sea-serpent type Dragon and Gyarados delivers in spades. They absolutely nailed it with the additional design elements like the crest on its head. Everything just makes it look more draconic. It’s not 10/10 because something about it really bothers me. But I’m not sure what it is.
Meloetta: 6/10- I’m kind of indifferent to Meloetta’s design.
Infernape: 4/10- IMO monkeys are ugly animals, and they are best portrayed as goofy creatures. That’s why Aipom and Ambipom work well. A badass monkey just comes off as strange
Serperior: 7/10- Looks kind of arrogant, but at the same time I like how they based it of a garter snake but make it look so regal.
Emboar: 3/10- Ugly abomination the fire type. It’s fat, it’s face is ugly, and it’s WAY overdesigned. People say Oshawott is overdesigned, but at least it’s design elements fit with the water theme. Emboar just has random patterns everywhere. Pigs are ugly creatures too. The only reason it’s not lower is that the random patterns aren’t very detrimental to the design. They just seem arbitrary
Muk: 9/10- THIS is how you design a sludge monster. It just looks so threatening. It looks like it could smother you to death, and as a purple blob, it looks toxic. People like to hate on it as a “blob”, but Pokemon’s not the first thing to do a blob monster, and they can actually appear quite threatening
Garbodor: 1/10- The antithesis of Muk. Rather than looking like a threatening embodiment of the waste we create, Garbodor’s design just screams DERP. Rather than being just a pile of garbage, they added pipes for arms and these hideous ears. And again, it’s face isn’t threatening.
Dugtrio: 7/10- Nothing that blows me away, but I am actually a big fan of the “3 poke’s combined into one” concept. Dugtrio looks like something that controls the earth element, and I like that.
Tyranitar: 10/10- Friggin Reptar crossed with Godzilla. One of the coolest looking pokemon ever designed. Most of the design elements like spikes just make it more rock-like and adds to it’s threatening look. The diamond shaped belly looks cool as well.
