The rest of the ones you posted are ok. They try to add WAY too many every gen and now have a huge liability on their hands with hundreds of Pokémon that is NO ONES favorite. They should be adding no more than 25-50 every gen.

>>600951229You didn't read the whole thing, did you?


>>600950221It's because you're trying to say an undeniable fact, pokemon's change in design philosophy, is atually false. If you could actually read then you would have seen I said the "grass" cat is just a green cat and that I never mentioned the olive at all.Exeggcute is a weird one because it's based on a sort of coconut and egg fusion, probably because of the word eggplant. Either way, they are fallen Exeggutor nuts.

>>600947993>>600948150zoomers grew up with Dreamworks tier shit and they respond to simplistic designs. These Pokemon are made to pander to them.

Sometimes I am just convinced that haters have just decided to dedicate themselves to hate regardless of the circumstances. However the shit the game may end up being, these designs won't be why. Or even part of why.

>>600947591Allow me to explain: it's a children's game/thread

I don't use other sites other than 4chan. But didn't "smol" start on /e/ and /a/? When did it become "reddit"?

>>600952447Yeah ''lechon''

>>600952205>That 3D MissingnoEven the glitches had soul in Gen 1.

>>600950825Olive looks a lot better.Rodent looks meh. Reminds me of that cut gen 2 fire starter.Pig looks better, but still doesn't look Pokemon-ish. Looks more like an early game enemy you'd see in a JRPG with cute monster designs, like Dragon Quest.

>>600952470>France used "le">Spain used "chonk" and "me gusta"And people wonder why English became the dominant language.

>>600952565>but still doesn't look Pokemon-ishWhat does?

>>600952565Pig perfectly pass as a pokemon, if anything the olive is the one that looks slapped in. It looks like a heartless or a mapple story mob

>>600949875Honestly good design, as long it's not another fucking furry it's an improvement.

The multiplayer coop might be good if they have contests like fishing or bug catching

>>600952754Well, someone once trained an AI on early Pokemon and Digimon designs, then fed it the rest of the designs and had it figure out if they were Pokemon or Digimon. Apparently pic related are the most Pokemon-looking Pokemon after Gen 2.

>>600950825This is such a bs comparison, the designs in these sprites are different than the official artwork. Smolive's face is a lot more compact with much less empty space. Likewise lechonk's face is far more compact with the nose not being cartoonishly big.The designs aren't even that bad, with moderate tweaking they could make them not shit. But as they are, they're fucking shit.

>>600947591I wish the art looked this good.

>>600951072>Do I fit in yet guiz?

>>600953408Also to add onto this, lechonk's nose isn't just a flat pink they contrasts with the rest of the body. In the sprites the colors smoothly transition and have shadows.

>>600950736Not him. But I am betting it would still look pretty good even at high res and a full scale colour array, provided it just had decent enough cel shading to it.

>>600953408>>600953578Have you ever heard of a little thing called angles user? But regardless of that compare literally any pokemon sprite to it's concept art and you will realize almost never is it a 1:1 matchAll the way up to gen 4 GF still couldn't get the colors exactly right for the sprites sometimesBut more importantly making pokemon look more compact in their sprites is exactly what GF did most of the time obviously because the games were made for small handheld screensIn gen 1 and 2 the concept art actually matched up better in this senseThen in gen 3 Sugimori started doing a more clean style which stretched out all of the proportions moreAnd if anything the switch to 3D models made many pokemon look way LESS faithful to their concept art from gen 1/2 let alone gen 3 Because you know 2D sprites and 3D models have to be approached very differently in order to actually look good in a gameBasically what I'm saying is these complaints are really stupid

>>600947591How do these look any worse than shit like Chikorita?

>>600953403>not a single gen 1-2 designCringe AI

>>600955431Nobody even remember Chikorita exist.

>>600955483Did you read the post? There are no gen 1 -2 Pokémon because those were used as the standard to evaluate the rest.

The original fanbase are now men in their late twenties and thirties, but their target demo has been increasingly small children and girls under 30. I really don’t know what’s so confusing about this.

>>600955431>Shit on bad old designs like Dewgong and Meganium, people simply agree with you>Shit on bad new designs like Cinderace and Lechonk, people lose their fucking minds People wouldn't hate nugen fans so much if you weren't such thin-skinned faggots.

>>600955858It has a big face and a rounded design, and those are apparently big things the AI picked up as Pokemon-like. Here are Pokemon the AI mistook the most often for Digimon.

>>600947591Pokemon makes 5/6ths of its money from merchandising. Simple, rounded designs are easier to make into toys than intricate ones.

>>600955413You’re asking aspies not to sperg user. They live only for this

>>600950017I don't think it's the models themselves necessarily I think it's that many of the designs (especially these early released ones) are being designed primarily to work as toys.

>>600956537>sharp edges and dark colors = DigimonWell, it's at least about as smart as the average user when deciding which is which

>>600956537>corvisquire but no corviknight even if they have the same designwat

>>600948054Yep, I was looking for someone to call Pokémon a tranny game.

>>600955713people really undersell the fact that pokemon shifted it's demo from just boys to now include women. It's very apparent when you look at pokemons multimedia endeavors like that cafe mobile game that they want girls to like the games and the designs from the early gens don't appeal to women as much.

>>600956537there's an equal mix of good and utterly shit designs in this image

Fellas... You don't HAVE to explain why designs bad or good. The initial 151 mon were drawn by Ken Sugimori, just say you like his work. Art is subjective, if I say I like Holbein I don't have to autistically explain why for 50 minutes.

>>600956537>alolan exeggcutor>bonslyNot quite what I was expecting

So.A coomer Pokemon game where you have to breed the Pokemon yourself and can catch wild Pokemon by mind breaking them.y/n?

that croco thing looks better than 99% of the things that have come out since johto

>>600957079>The initial 151 mon were drawn by Ken Sugimori.....as well as all the others until Gen 8?

>>600947591How are they any different from all the other Pokemon? Am I lacking the gene that makes me seethe and scream and shit myself in fury over meaningless drivel?

>>600956537to be very fair to game freak the some of the ones like the Ultra beasts or Deoxys are meant to be otherworldy alien creatures so it obviously makes sense they would look very differentI know people still don't like their designs but the Ultra beasts aren't indicative of a trend since they're their own one off thing.

>>600956660This comparison sums up why I don't care for newer pokemon as much. They are a lot more fanciful and many shove a specific "theme" into their designs in the most hamfisted way possible like how Incineroar must be a wrestler before anything else and Noivern must have boombox elements

>>600957317A brain is not a gene, but yes, you're lacking it.

>>600953403the fact that like half of this list is gen 3 which is the furthest back the ai can go is kinda sad.

>>600957079What are you doing on a video game discussion board if you don't like seeing people discussing video games?

>>600956537Some extra information. The person who did the experiment admitted that the AI wasn't judging Pokemon as "Digimon-like" in the same way people tended to. He noticed that the AI thought gens 4, 7, and 8 were the most Digimon-like, but from a questionnaire he did people seemed to think gens 5, 7, and 8 were the most Digimon-like. When he sorted Pokemon by what type of design they fell into, he noticed that gens 5, 7 and, 8 have way more bipedal and human-like Pokemon than other gens. So he theorizes that bipedal and anthropomorphic Pokemon are the big thing that causes people to view a generation as Digimon-like. The AI though seems to mostly be judging designs based on their spikiness, the size of their face, and how the colors are saturated and contrast.Anyway, here's Digimon the AI thought were Pokemon. Terriormon is the most Pokemon-like Digimon, with 2000 out of 2000 times of the AI thinking it's a Pokemon.

That's not a terribly long time when the Pokemon franchise itself is already 2,5x that in age. Even if Sugimori's already let other artists take over the lead artist roles, soon enough you won't be seeing anything out of his pen.

>>600947867>the original illustrators are probably dead by nowAnon, it’s not the fucking dark ages. Even if Sugimori was in his 40s when he did the art, he would still statistically be alive.

I was fine with Pokemon designs until Gen 8

>>600961887>And they all came from one guy doing what he thought would be a minor thing. He was just like, "I'm going to create a whole pantheon of monster for a game taht's like 99% sure to flop"No, you fucking retard. There are like 7 or 10 Pokemon designers in gen 1 alone. These are obviously incomplete by the way. I hate you retards so fucking much, you don't even know what you're talking about.

So is this going to be a thing with every new generation, Holla Forums throwing the exact same genital-tearing tantrums about how Gamefreaks hates them and is destroying everything they love?


>>600962618there's no sprouting bulb on the bellsprout linejust accept that these new neopet chinese bootleg pokemon are garbage and go back to your groomer discord or whatever

>>600963164Nice pic user. Want to know something curious? Vileplume is not Gloom. Did you know that? I did. Vileplume has an actual flower designed on its head, not whatever those blobs Gloom has.

There's nothing wrong with them, and if these are the shitty ones you guys are complaining about, it seems like pokemon designs must be getting better after the garbage they subjected us to in previous iterations.

>>600950738>someone genuinely seethed about this

>>600947867Sugimori is still alive, he was supposed to quit/retire from Pokemon though. The guy that did the ultra beasts was supposed to take over. But I think Sugimori didn't like his work and stayed around and as concession they still allowed the ultra beast guy to make some

>>600950530right, you're just a manchild with nostalgia bias

Why are they so committed to using these Fisher price toy 3d models and not something creative and unique like their original water color aesthetic? Keep the 3D models but do water color cell shading or something idk fuck i hate gamefreak

>>600964569>The guy that did the ultra beasts was supposed to take over. But I think Sugimori didn't like his work and stayed around and as concession they still allowed the ultra beast guy to make someMultiple people designed the Ultra Beasts and all of them (of the ones that have revealed designers anyways) have done design work on previous gen Pokemon. Sugimori probably only stepped down for Turner to be art director for Gen 8 because he's the only anglo on the team anyways.

From what I've seen people really want to fuck the first one. So pokemon ain't lost yet.

>>600965135That's exactly what people think too.

>>600947591These designs are the best we had since Black/White.

>>600964990>cherrypickingsure showed me, want to bring up "literally a Pokeball" and "literally a Pokeball but upside down" as pinnacles of character design while you're at it, or even "three floating magnates stuck together"?

>>600964259It's the Juan Bobo story! Hory shiiiiit! I didn't expect any deeper cultural references than random spanglish.

>>600957496Did you also feel this way when you discovered Meowth is the Japanese fortune cat first and foremost, Jynx is a specific type of yokai first and foremost, and Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan are Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan first and foremost?

>>600965313>what if… we just made lazy copies of Gen 1 designs? For the entire game’s dex? >good designsUnovabort pls go, your game will always be nugen

>>600965606This. BW were our most hated games of 2010 because they epitomize nugen. We will always bate Gen 5 kust as much as Gen 6,7,8,9

You've had literally fucking DECADES to accept that newer pokemon are usually>Rounder>Cartoonyetcand yet we have this thread VERBATIM every time a new pokemon is announced.

>we have people crying about Pokemon deigns being "too simple" AND people crying that Pokemon designed are "over-designed" in the same threadWhich is it, people?

>>600965606>>600965682Tranny /vp/ samefag thinking hes tricking anyone again

>>600965686I'm more concerned by people insisting that there is absolutely no difference and that the art direction is exactly the same.

>>600965787since when do route 1 pokemon and starters ever do?


>>600965686Because we are Holla Forums. Rage and hatred are our food and drink, complaining is the essence of our beings, and outrage is the air we breathe. And we will continue to shit on everything outside Gen 1 until Gamefreak is burned to the ground and its "developers" executed and thrown into a ditch.

>>600965682Discordfag can't even type properly anymore, how sad.

>>600965895>Oh no, i've been found out

>>600965946You faggots have ran this joke into the ground so hard you forgot how hyped Holla Forums used to get for games

>>600965842But they're right...as long as it's between 2-9 and the few outliers of 1.

>>600965867I'm going to count Charmander and Nidoran.

>>600965787The worst part is how their heads are double the size of their bodies (to make them more suitable for to be stuffed toys.)It even happened to old pokemon art compared to more recent art, their heads are MASSIVE now.

Holla Forums stopped being about anything positive years ago, now it's endless shrieking about how oldfags are never being catered to, raging about how every group of people someone hates is responsible for everything being destroyed, and massive shit-flinging circuses over East vs West, console wars, and other faggotry. It's not a joke when it's the truth and reality.

>>600966158>The worst part is how their heads are double the size of their bodiesThis has been a massive trend since Gen 2 but there was hints of it in Gen 1 even so far back. Meowth's head is wider than its entire body in its original JP artwork
