    Said it a million times, will say it again.

    Voltorb, it is literally the worst designed pokemon out there. I have no idea what kind of drugs the designers took when they came up with it.

    I hate that piece of shit, and it would do only good if they would just delete it from all future Pokemon games permanently. (All of the above goes for electrode as well)

    Magnezone, but that's more or less out of personal despise since I used Magneton regularly, and then suddenly this ugly UFO butthead shows up and ruins the evolution line. I still don't get how they managed to come up with a UFO concept for Magneton's evolution, Magnemite and Magneton's concepts are based around magnetism obviously, but then suddenly it becomes a UFO because fuck you. They could just have given Magneton Levitate and it wouldn't have needed a stat-boost either way, but nope, gotta make a UFO which doesn't levitate either. I actually despise the majority of the new evolutions to old Pokémons that were introduced in Gen IV, I really don't like Rhyperior or Mamoswine either.

    I also really hate Mr. Mime, what a stupid stupid concept.

    Oh, and the tree Pokémon looks... bad.

    Actually Magneton is based on Gamefreak being lazy as fuck and saying "We multiply it by 3 and it's a new Pokemon, BRILLIANT!"

    -turns around and looks at original 150 sans Mew poster I've had since I was like 6-

    Holz, if you super oversimplify things... every single original Pokemon is stupidly uncreative.

    "We take some eggs and give them faces - BRILLIANT!"
    "We take a mouse and make it evolve into a rat! BRILLIANT!"
    "Cats. BRILLIANT!"
    "A venus fly trap from a different angle 3 times! BRILLIANT!"
    "Exotic dancer. BRILLIANT!"

    I think Magneton makes sense, because it's just supposed to be a bunch of Magnemites that fused together to be come more powerful. Beldum > Metang > Metagross does it to amplify their brain count, too.

    You forgot my personal favourite, Viscoe:

    "A snake named Ekans, evolves into a cobra named Arbok! GIVE US A DESIGN AWARD!"

    And let's not forget the gas pokemon whose names are pronounced just like "coughing" and "wheezing" xP

    But, man, I still love dat gen ^^

    Buried Hope by XJ Selman! There is no reason NOT to buy this fantastic sci-fi/dystopian debut for the paltry sum of $.99! And I don't even tend to like sci-fi!

    Not a single evolution is as lazy and uncreative as Magneton and Dugtrio though.

    I dunno, man. Electrode is just Voltorb flipped upside down. I think that takes the cake. Because at least for Magneton/Dugtrio, they explain that it's not a brand new dude, it's a bunch of dudes that came together and work in unison. (That's why I feel like they're acceptable evolutions.)

    Also: Ambipom. :T TWO HANDS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

    Cause anything with the word punch means the move is a fighting type. So shadow punch and ice punch are fighting type moves!

    That's like asking how does quilfish use poison jab

    It could punch with it's tail or since it's possibly a physic move it creates a illusion punch? Seriously people no imagination in you guys...

    That is to say, being silly for the sake of it? Yes.

    And to be fair poison jab doesn't necessarily have to be an arm, it's just a stabbing motion

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jab

    A jab is a type of punch used in the martial arts. Several variations of the jab exist, but every jab shares these characteristics: while in a fighting stance, the lead fist is thrown straight ahead and the arm is fully extended. It is an overhand punch; at the moment of impact, the pronated fist is generally held in a horizontal orientation with the palm facing the ground.
    But yes to be silly.

    the way i imagine it is that magnezone is basically all the magnemites finally were pulled together to make one being or something

    It's just a fucking ball. That's it, there is NOTHING interesting, or creative about it, it is the most unimaginative, uncreative, boring piece of shit that was ever called a Pokemon.
