My friends and I actually have a bet going on. I'm betting that within two more generations, every new pokemon will be an indistinguishable puff ball, but they'll all have different color variations.
What? Your pink puffball is evolving into...mauve puffball!
I am totally against the cute-ifying of pokemon. They get cuter, and stupider, and more /gag-me looking with each new generation. I'm not saying the first was perfect by any means, but the 'cool' ones are getting to be fewer and far between.
Meh, I've always prefered Gen 1 over any other. But my pokemon-experience ends at Gen 3, so I will only compare those three. And I really don't see why every time someone likes an older version of something better than a new one, it HAS to be nostalgia. Can't someone ever think that after the first Gen/Season something became worse? D: Linking pictures from 4chan should be bannable, as it 90% of the time is incredibly offensive. I don't mind the offensiveness on 4chan, but don't bring it to other forums.
A friend of mine who's been into pokemon far longer than me linked some of the newer gen legendary pokemon and holy shit what started off as some kinda neat world with these alien creatures which you can catch/train/befriend/battle with seems to have turned into some over-serious fucked up place. Pokemon Gods who created worlds/controls the sea/earth/whatever and whatnot turning up. Story-wise I'm incredibly happy I quit at gen 3, jeebus.
Going to go with Metagross, followed by Gyarados and Hydreigon. For some strange reason those 3 are also part of my team.
