    Great one! : D
    I mean, that brings out the obvious. It's not that the new Pokemon are bad designed/unoriginal, it's just that the most of us played the games with this Pokemon in our childhood and human beings don't like changes..I'm sure, if Black and White are the first Pokemon games for a five year old today, he will have the same experience as we had with the first generation - maybe he will even hate the other ones of the previous generations..
    Other than that, i kinda like most of the new Pokemon, I don't know what the ones expect, which are from generation 4 on constantly saying that the designs are bad..I mean, just try to think up 650 different creatures!

    Oh, I haven't even played black/white, I just agree that people are saying generation-5 pokemon are so unoriginal when generation-1 has such plain ones.

    Generation 1 pokemon just get bigger, grow extra appendages/heads, or don't evolve at all. The exception being the caterpillar pokes.

    No, Generation 5 pokemon are the most unique in the series yet. Its kind of awesome to NOT see cutesy Pokemon around every goddamn corner.

    Every generation had shitty pokemon.
    The rant is pretty moot.
    Gen 5 has pretty much all shitty pokemon though. There is maybe 5 or 6 that are decent looking.

    Also Eevee is SUPPOSED to look boring. That's so you evolve it into something cooler/cuter looking. Derp.

    I just hate how those stupid grass, fire, and water monkeys look like evolutions of aipom via elemental stones.

    FYI, those aren't 5th gen Pokemon though I do agree with you. Certain pokemon are really unoriginal.

    I like the elemental monkeys, especially the grass one. :3

    I actually think that Gen 4 had my favorite pokemon; Buizel, Starly, and even Drifloon were awesome.

    I don't like ALL the 5th gens, but they have some really nice ones too. (Who DOESN'T like Derp Otter Mijumaru?) :3

    it is the fifth revision, after all. The same mix 5x is bound to go sour.

    Generation 5 brought us Desukaan. Therefore, it is the most awesome generation so far. I rest my case.

    Seriously, though, I like a lot of the designs this generation. The final evolutions of starters seem pretty derp (especially Mijumaru's line, how does a cute otter thing evolve into... that?); but I found myself liking pretty much every pokémon, even the derps I would normally restrict to being HM slaves (Yorterrie and the cat).

    Speaking of, I like how there are only 5 or 6 HMs this generation - it means I can build a team around pokémon I like, rather than ones I keep around because they use some obscure HM I might need to get an item on one obscure route.

    Or *shudders* keep around for Defog. Screw that HM and every route that required it.

    I must admit, this generation has a bunch of growers. Fail at the fire/fighting starter combo for the 3RD TIME. Right now, i happen to like them, they'll be even better when NoA translates the names and the story.

    Topic title made me laugh. "5th gen is unoriginal"...

    Kinda like saying, my 4th gen iPod isn't original!

    Sorry, just kinda amused, the 5th gen Pokemon are a bit shit and look like Digimon!
