People always shit on gen 5 for the worst pokemon concepts...
but truly gen 4 had the ugliest pokemon
What are you smoking? Those are some top notch 'mons anon.
is just ripoff of gen 1 pokemon

Cherubi is just a grass mon like any other.
And while Rotom forms are silly, they're not literally part of Rotom's body or permanent "evolutions", at least.
How is Vanillite not an ice mon like any other?
Explain why you're triggered by pokemon based on man-made food?
unless you can't
Nah, Gen III was the worst gen and the first massive decline in popularity. Which caused gen IV to be shitty as they pandered to genwunners with cross gen evolutions and when that failed they tried a reboot in gen V which failed even harder. Gen III was the worst gen objectively speaking.
Idk for me most of gen4 is at least decent, and i really like some designs.
The pokemon world is different than our world.
What if the Vanillite line inspired ice cream? I'm sure there was a throwaway line about Casteliacones being based on them.
Not to mention with that logic pokemon like Jynx and Pangoro based on certain groups of people would also make no sense, do you hate them too?
With Pangoro they were subtle. It's a panda with a unusually long fur some places.
The problem with the Vanilluxe is how painfully in-your-face the design is, it's literally an ice cream made out of ice with a face, even with a straw in case you didn't already get that it is supposed to look like an ice cream.
Jynx is pretty shit too yeah.
I'll agree that Vanilluxe is very in-your-face, but it isn't literally an ice cream made out of ice with a face. It's literally some... two-headed diamond-studded floating ice crystal monster that exhausts cold air (hence the straw) with snow on top. The design's obviously based on ice cream, but I think it's creative enough to get a pass.
Magnemite might have been scrap metal brought to life by electromagnetic fields, as with Voltorb.
I don't have a problem with objects brought to life like that, same reason I don't mind Grimer and Trubbish since they're shit brought to life by radiation and what not.
Vanilluxe on the other hand is just an Ice pokémon that "coincidentally" happens to look exactly like ice cream on the other hand.
I fail to see why you would think I have a problem with humanoid pokémon.
>Because pokemon are natural creatures that arrived before or at the same time as humans
>It makes no sense for them to be based on stuff humans recently invented
you're the one who said this
also magnemite was around 3000 years ago
Gen 4 has the worst designs (more than a few good ones though)
Gen 2 has the most bland (same here, and even more so, with really great ones)
I don't get why so many people such the dick of either of those Gens.
I wouldn't take promotional art for the TCG too seriously. The same scan also accurately describes some of the fossils far better than what they could have done even with their hands on a full skeleton.
>gen 5 was the ugliest!
>no gen 4 was the ugliest!
I don't know how people can consistently make this mistake when gen 2's Pokemon were objectively the worst by a huge margin.
Gen II was based
As a matter of fact, most were just delayed Gen I pokemon that werent put in the first games.
But of course you digimon lovers would prefer overdesigned Gen V shits
It had one belly pattern for gen I/remake, one for gen II and one for III. That wasnt lazy as all.
It's only from gen IV on that they have been lazy and used the same design in every game.
>shitting on pokemon designs.
A reminder to get a load of this
