    Right now, this generation is pure shit.
    But in 10 years it will be remembered as the best.

    While the designs take part in the hate because of the ridiculousness of them, the nostalgia is probably what breaks the ice for most.

    Let's just agree pokemon designs have always been batshit insane.

    Am I the only one who actually liked the Gen 5 pokemon? Yes I will admit their designs are either unoriginal or out there but who cares? I wish people would stop being nostalgia whores I mean most of us here started on either Gen 1 or 2. A lot of kids started on Gen 4 or 5 and when they're older they'll see those as nostalgic and the best designs.

    This 5th gen it's the first that goes into the category.... "omfg, this is awful!"
    The 4th one is just okay, not really good but not THAT bad (lots of evolutions forms of older pkmns)
    The 3rd it's really weird... but good at the same time
    The 2nd and 1st are the best ones

    well there has to be some sort of end to possible designes sooner or later so yeah .....

    i think they should have stopped at first gen and just maybe gave every pokemon more evolutions up to 4 or something instead of doing 5000000 completely new.
    in the beggining it was like "hey yeah i can remember all 150 i am cool !!!" and than it was "muahahahaha noob i know all 151 !!!"
    well after it became like "i know all 487" it became like "man get a life -.-V"


    Really was fun at the beginning but even the second gen pokemon where not for me anymore.

    The storyline for gen 5 was a big change and made up for the huge amount of shitty pokemon designs.

    Hahahaha story in a pokemon game.
    Good one. No pokemon game ever had a story that was more than words meant to be skipped through.

    ---

    Every gen has some shitty pokemon. It's just that the later the gens get, the larger the ratio of shit : good get.

    I don't care about the Pokémon that look bad, because I either:
    1- Get used to them;
    2- Don't use them.

    is gen 5 black and white?

    if so, it wasn't the pokemon that was up with it, it was the charm.

    You make a good point, but I still like the simple colors used in Gen 1. It allows you to fully take in the shape and qualities of the pokemon.
