Looks kinda... childish? It's to be expected from a nintendo handheld. However, That's not necessarily a bad thing.

I like my 3DS :)

Kind of tired of Charizard at this point. If this was a nostalgia-themed 3DS, Charizard would be a good one. But he's now overshadowed by stronger Pokémons. I would personally like a Hydreigon, or rather Sazandora, Edition, as the box put it. It kinda looks like Charizard, but meaner, darker, and IMO all around more badass, appearance and ability-wise.

All the newer Pokemons look retarded imo.

Since I got disagrees, I'm gonna take a wild guest and say they are nostalgia freaks. Seriously, George Sears, I agree that Gen V has some stupid looking Pokémons, but to say "All", despite it being your own opinion, makes you seem like a, I hate to say the term, a nostalgia freak (I was gonna say a stronger cuss, but I don't want to lose one of my two bubbles left). May I ask a serious question? What EXACTLY constitutes as a "Pokémon", other than them being Monsters that belong in your pocket? Lets compare a few Pokémons from Gen I as Gen V.

Gen I
•Geodude: is a rock... With arms... And with eyes... That's screams unoriginal.
•Charizard: Badass Fire/Flying-type starter. One of the most recognizable Pokémons in Pokémon history. Belongs in nostalgic Kanto.
•Mewtwo: Another of the most badass Pokémons ever created. Despite being a pure Psychic-type, still one of the most dangerous Pokémons to use in competitive battles.

Gen IV
•Vanilite: a single scoop, single-coned, ice cream cone... That's basically it.
•Haxorus: Has a black shiny color, like Charizard. A pure Dragon-type, but is able to hold its own in competitive battle. Looks like a beast, tusks look like axes.
•Hydreigon: Dark/Dragon-type Pokémon. The latest Pokémon evolution so far, at Lv 64. Strong move pool, is a Pseudo-Legendary having 600 base stats. Unique typing. Looks like a 3-headed hydra, with tank-tire inspired body (as it was intended to be more tank-like back during development). Also a beast at competitive battling.

There. Stupid and awesome Pokémons from both regions. I think people don't like the new Pokémon because 1)The game is still relatively what it was 15 years ago, 2)It's cool to jump on the hate bandwagon, so either go with them, or be hated by almost everyone even though 90% of them have only played Gen I, 3)You're a nostalgia freak yourself, and someday, you'll grow up to be a cranky old men who doesn't like change because them "youngsters" are having fun, or 4)Gen 1-3 had somewhat of a safe design, almost all of them looking simplistic enough. With Gen IV and V, I guess Ken Sugimori was given a bit more freedom, so he was able to put more intricate designs on the Pokémons, and really give them extra details that the earlier Pokémons didn't have. Or, maybe you're all of the above.

One last thing to end my point. While I only started playing Pokémon in 2005, I still played all main Pokémon gens so far, and thankfully, that didn't stop me clouding my judgments, and instantly called others idiots for not liking the region I started with (all you nostalgia freaks -_-). ALL regions have had their own share of "facepalm" Pokémons, normal Pokémons, and cool Pokémons.

Is Charizard even relevant anymore in the Pokemon games? The only way to get one anymore is either to trade one over from heart gold/soul silver.
