With each new generation, new Pokemon designs suck even more.

They should just stop making these games for a while...

Dj7FairyTail1599d ago

then why don't you design them.

You do know there like 700.

Blacktric1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

"then why don't you design them."

Oh look, it's the: "if you don't like it why don't you do it yourself" guy.

Criticizing something does not require one to be able to do that thing better. By that logic, you shouldn't listen to what a huge majority of movie critics say. Get over yourself.

Anarki1599d ago

Why dont they just stick to the ones they have. It's getting silly how many there are now.

ChronoJoe1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

In fairness, he doesn't look that bad. It fits the artstyle seen in the newer games, more.

It becomes more difficult to be original, the more they produce. So cut them some slack. I think anyone that actually enjoys these games is willing to do that.

However, some of the designs we saw in gen 5 were just plain lazy, and not akin to the previous generations. Pokemon like Vanillite, and Chandelure made it feel like they were taking shortcuts with their design process (ie looking around a room, picking inanimate objects and making them into pokemon). Seriously, an Ice Cream cone and a Chandeleir?

With that in mind. Provided Gen 6 is better than gen 5, I certainly won't be complaining. Based on the starters and what we've seen so far, it looks pretty good. I'm not going to hate on the designs just because Mewtwo has a new form. Independently it's not bad either, just his old form looked more badass.

Mounce1599d ago

It's like, if Link from LOZ merged with Mewtwo.....

dark-hollow1599d ago

This is simply not true.

Muk, koffing, digglet (which evolves into three digletts! So creative!) Voltrob (a freaking pokeball for Christ's sake!) Ditto (pink Jilly with eyes) krabby ( a generic crab) jynx, drowzee, Exegegcute (EGGS WITH FACES!!!!)

Am not saying that the first gen designs sucks at all, but don't pretend like they are the pinnacle of creativity when it comes to design.

Every gen have it own good designs and bad designs.

jakmckratos1598d ago

Or hey if you really don't like them you just don't have to buy it! How about that! The jump to 3D should be enough for anyone and honestly these are the best looking starters since probably gen 3,,the 2 legendaries were also sick, the eeveelution is alright..and this one is a lot better than the leaked images!

And here's my favorite piece of advice as long as you are indeed a pokemon fan and not some turd trying to piss the rest of us off...only catch the pokemon YOU actually like. Even if they're not that great in battle the whole point of this game is to make an awesome team unique to yourself...who cares if you don't like all 100 new pokemon? All you need is 6

LOL_WUT1598d ago

Ditto was a beast! But yeah they need to give this series a rest at least until they can come up with some better ideas. ;)

MaxXAttaxX1598d ago (Edited 1598d ago )

Not the opposite.

CourierSix1597d ago

I do agree somewhat, but I will say I have grown accustom to the new gen pokemon, and there are some cool designs...

I actually kinda like it.

TXIDarkAvenger1599d ago

I would of liked it if it had been like another Pokemon, not a different form of Mewtwo. The original all ready looked badass.

rezzah1599d ago

It wasn't bad, but it now looks like the tail is sticking out the back of his head...

Jeenoman1598d ago

"This new Pokémon shares many traits with Mewtwo and it’s suspected that the newly discovered Pokémon has a connection with Mewtwo—a powerful Pokémon that debuted in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue."

That's from the press release. Apparently it's a completely new Pokemon. Not a redesign of an already established one.

Root1599d ago

Why ruin the old Pokemon, kids today arn't going to know much about the old ones so why ruin their image for US older pokemon fans.

Seriously why does Mewtwo even have a second form...HE'S A CLONE. Surley Mew would be the first to have a second form, so if Mew dosen't then why does Mewtwo. I'm pretty sure a failed clone of a Pokemon wouldn't be able to have a second evolution.

TopDudeMan1599d ago

Well, going into that form will likely give benefits in the game such as increased physical attack damage or a different special ability. The same reason other pokemon such as arceus and giratina have different forms.

trenso11599d ago

@Root agreed i wish they didnt ruin the older pokemon at least not the legendary ones.

@topdudeman doubt that the video only showed him doing moves that were special attacks i dont think it will be a stat thing but maybe an ability or second type change or something

Pyrrhus1599d ago

At least we finally have a potentially good looking fire pokemon starter. We have had a shitty pig (only generation I started water) and an average monkey (which wasn't really that bad).

Infact, last generation designs were the worse. This generation is looking pretty OK atm imo.

majiebeast1599d ago

I didnt know Frieza was a pokemon.

ABizzel11598d ago (Edited 1598d ago )

It's grown on me.

At first I didn't like it, and I still think the original is much more [email protected]@$$, but it's seems ok now. It's like a Mew + Mewtwo hybrid.

I think the problem is he looks like a headphone wearing tween Mewtwo vs. a boss-like OMG evolution.

Reminds me of Kid Buu from DBZ, but should have been more like Super Buu.

It's NOT mewtwo... It's a new pokemon.

Like I thought before, Kid Buu has made his way into Pokémon

Edit: Mew3 (i'mma gonna refer to it as that since this form doesn't have a name yet) has 6 moves... Is Gamefreak allowing more usable moves in battle, or just showcasing some of the moves Mew3 has??

Yehshuah1599d ago

don't think it's six moves. it's just six different variations of moves he used

Blastoise1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

Awww nobody asked for this :(

Mewtwo was awesome as it was

SilentNegotiator1599d ago

Nintendo: "Shut up and go catch a Mewthree"

dafegamer1599d ago

This^^ Seriously they can ruin any pokemon they want, but just not Mewtwo

Baylex1598d ago

Yeah... but they did.. the most badass pokemon.. just ruined forever... on a simple draw......

Wenis1599d ago

To be honest, its better than the recent lot of uninspired-legendaries that they've made the past 2 gens.

Deku-Johnny1598d ago

Nobody asked for any of the 700+ Pokemon. Damn Genwunners.
