What is wrong about Haxorus and Butterfree?
>>
>>24975793
Butterfree looks more like the old anime art instead of the current bigger head look, which I think looks a lot better.

Haxorus is because of how the legs bend or something. Never noticed till Haxorusfags started bitching though.

Tropius has always been silly looking. There's no way those thin leaves should be able to support a 7 foot tall, 220 lb sauropod.

How is Eelektross actually floating a bad thing?

In Gen 5, it just hopped up and down.
>>
>>24975726
Look at it. So soulless and lifeless and other buzzwords this board uses to trash every model.

Flying models were a shit blanket idea, though, and doesn't work with Pokemon like Tropius or Salamence.
>>
>>24976163
because it's supposed to hop up and down. Otherwise it wouldn't have feet.

Sky battles (and flying animations along with it) was just another horrible mistake from gen6 together with Megas and Fairy type.

more reasons as to why you shouldn't show him gliding like that

>>24976123
agree. The OP is a huge phaggot and has no life. He comes hereba few times per week and complains about 3d models and yetvhe STILL hasnt done anything ti improve it.

Dear OP get a job at gamefreak and develop better models or stfu you no lige phaggot
>>
>>24976284
Fucking retard if he could join GF that easily the entirety of /vp/ would be there
The problem isn't why OP isn't developing models, but why GF isn't making better models when they obviously already have the resources to do so besides just them being lazy or acting like idiots.

Haxorus's body has always been pear shaped

The fuck are you two talking about?

>>24978423
He looked normal in col,gale of darkness and PBR
Just looks odd in 6th gen
>>
>>24976273
Hippo looks fine
He looked weird in gen 5 where he humped his sand pile
>>
>>24978831
Yeah, the gliding animations looks odd and the wing flapping animation would look better on flying pokemon. This is just my theory here, but maybe they gave Tropius a gliding animation because it looks like it wouldn't be able to flap it's leaf wings. I know applying logic to pokemon is stupid, but that's my theory.

I have no idea why Salamence, Skarmory, Swellow, etc don't use wings flapping but whatever.

GameFreak everybody

>though there are ones where the pokemon is standing on his feet in Amie
that pisses me off so much

just give all flying pokemon a 'flying' model and a 'standing' model, unless they can't stand like Drifblim or Crobat

'Flying' model is used for Sky Battles only, it's fucking retarded that some flying types can't even do Sky Battles because of their model
>>
>>24978879
>>24979007
I think that is more retarded think that a FLYING pokémon should NOT be flying, I mean, seriously, I get that the gliding animations annoys some people, but I see no problem with flying-types that are just flapping the wings.

Yeah? What about it? Gengar also has levitate yet it still stands on its feet.

>>24976889
>>24978774
Look up the definition of what a foot is.

>>24978760
Blastoise's cannons are too small and it just doesn't look good altogether. Look up Blastoise's D-Arts toy if you want to see what Blastoise SHOULD look like in 3D.

Butterfree's head is wrong.

Eelektross' design doesn't look good when it's floating like a wind sock.

Lugia's arms are too small.

Haxorus looks like a derpy piece of shit compared to gen 5.

Yes, all of these are bad.

Is pretty simple: Sometimes Eelektross likes to fly, sometimes he likes to stand in "feet".
>>
>>24979449
No it wouldn't. Why would it float when it's a bipedal thing with arms and legs? It would look silly floating because it's design doesn't work that way. Eelektross is the same thing. It's clearly meant to stand because it has fucking feet and arms but they made it float and it just looks awkward with its arms flapping around on its sides doing nothing. It didn't float a SINGLE time in ANY Pokemon media before gen 6 happened. And even in gen 6 it still stands while in Pokemon-amie.

>>24979459
yeah that's why they showed eelektross flying anywhere during gen 5 right

oh wait
>>
>>24978879

Amie models don't have battle animations. You can't just slap the current battle animations on them, they have to transition smoothly from their neutral pose. It's not as easy as just slapping them into battle.
>>
>>24979477

I'm sorry, are you saying Eelektross CAN'T float? Despite having Levitate?

>why would it float

Because it gives it a tactical advantage.

And what makes you think that only gen 5 counts as "canon"?
They could only make one animation per pokémon, this is just the second animation that Eelektross got in a main game. And if the game shows it levitating, just accept that it fucking can levitate.
>>
>>24979513
>I'm sorry, are you saying Eelektross CAN'T float?

No, I'm saying it CAN float. But it shouldn't do it ALL THE TIME. Just like Gengar.

>Because it gives it a tactical advantage.

Yeah I'm sure making it obvious that your opponent can't use Earthquake on you is a tactical advantage
>>
>>24976163
It's new size

It's really small now
>>
>>24979355
depends on the pokemon, Pidgeot looks nice flying but something like Xatu is awkward to look at

>>24979487
no one stopped GF for creating animations for both
>>
>>24979524
God this board is autistic
>>
>>24979523
>And if the game shows it levitating

and it looks fucking stupid. No one is denying it can levitate the faggot. The argument is that it looks retarded and it shouldn't be doing it all the time.

>>24979653
yeah it truly is, evidenced by all the people actually defending some of these animations
