Nintendo Announces New Ugly Type Pokemon

Hardcore Gamer: I feel weird criticizing Nintendo for lazily designed Pokemon these last couple of generations, especially when their first generation included Pokemon that were a seal creature named Seel and a mime Pokemon named Mr. Mime, but at least those didn't look absolutely ridiculous (3DS, Pokemon X and Y)

Its a new sub type equipment pokemon.

I actually kinda like that Honedge Pokemon

Same here. The only pokemon I've ever had an issue with was Vanilluxe: http://serebii.net/pokedex-...

His design IMO seemed like they were getting desperate.

I think Honedge looks awesome though! Steel/Ghost type sounds pretty cool too. Cant wait to catch it and see if it can be competitive :)

The design is, in my opinion, perfectly fine...
I just don't understand Pokemon "fans" these days I guess.

I agree. I think pokemon is one of the few fandoms where people actively pick apart everything new and call it terrible. I for one love Honedge, And I will name one Excalibur.

they act like all the first gen were so dang cool looking. ditto looks like some damn gum and tangela is a ball of vines. hell seel is a damn seal, and who the hell thinks metapod looks cool?

Dude, it's a sword that unsheathes itself in battle. That's freakin' awesome. It's ghost and steel a lethal new combination and swords is a perfectly logical choice for a region based on Europe where old/enchanted swords are part of the mythos.

This thing is awesome! I can't wait to have this in my party, I bet it has a super cool evolution.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes it, I see people complaining about it everywhere (that or people complaining about the people complaining) but it really is cool. Just think what the evolution tree of a possessed sword could be.

I think this mans nostalgia goggles are on a bit tight. Honedge is a Perfectly fine Pokemon.

What's next, a toothbrush Pokemon? They should have stopped making Pokemon games after Emerald and Sapphire.

But then we never would have gotten Heartgold and Soulsilver.

This isn't remotely as bad as some of the designs that currently exist in Pokemon games.

Fairly unoriginal? Sure, but what isn't these days.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   288d ago
I like it.

The backlash to this reminds of the backlash to Chandelure, which is also a cool Pokemon design.
