Laughed heartily at that G1 Frogadier. Thank you OP
You mean Froakie
Lillipup definitely wouldn't have looked like that in Gen 1. That Elektross looks cool though.
Froakie becoming a sumo wrestler
7/10, better than the original
6/10, slightly worse
3/10, way worse
There isn't a 1000 to avoid, so no reason to do regional variants anymore.
Elektross is a huge improvement.
You are aware that the problem is not the region of the pokemon, but the current artistic direction, just take Vulpix as an example, an original Kantomon that has been redesigned to resemble its Alola counterpart.
I know this is the Red/Blue design, but I don't remember it in the show
I don't remember it looking like this in any game
Maybe I'm just dumb
Why did they do this?
Will always be the better Vulpix
I dislike how they made the arctic fox version slimmer than the fire version. It's supposed to be adapted to cold environments. Make it fluffy and have smaller ears. They really just designed it to appeal to pokefuckers.
This, in the end you will only get regional Kanto forms but with the current design philosophy
am i supposed to want to do wretched things to the one on the right's hole?
Gen 4 started it. Originally Vulpix was very well proportioned, then gen 4 made it have a water head
I agree that the Gen 4+ version is cuter but I feel bad that it has to come to that
I really don't understand why they feel the need to change designs or make new ones to make it cuter or more marketable as a plushie. I'm pretty sure I had a vulpix plushie years ago that had a bigger head and flat face regardless. It's still recognizably vulpix, and I don't think anyone would bat an eye that their plush toy isn't perfectly on-model and is instead deformed in some spots to look cuter.
It also just ends up as strange when new designs and old designs clash and look out of place alongside eachother. It's nice when pokemon are allowed to look off model in order to make them more detailed or cuter depending on the medium. Plushies can be cute regardless of the designs, and TCG art could add a bunch of extra texture and shading to make the stationary images look more vibrant.
Instead it feels like there's a compulsion to streamline things and smooth out edges as much as possible so that everything lines up to the official art as much as physically possible.
Froakie's redesign is stupid, why would it look like Bulbasaur and not Poliwhirl?
Because they bought too heavily in the "le bulbasaur is a heckin frog" meme.
I know Bulbasaur is frog, my question is why would Froakie look like ONLY Bulbasaur.
The artist is implying Bulbasaur is what any Gen 1 frog would look like when there's already another Gen 1 frog that looks nothing like it.
I know, and what I'm saying is that the artist bought into the "Bulbasaur is a frog" idea, when that's only partially true.
Bulbasaur is a vague hybrid creature, using traits from frogs, yes, but also mammals, pop culture depictions of dinosaurs, and even (perhaps unintentionally) extinct para-reptiles. That line is more "monster" than much else, but a lot of people assume that it is exclusively a frog, and the artist here is likely one of them.
These all look that shit.
yeah, the ones to the left especially
Kanto eelektross kicks ass, the other two look terrible
It's funny "artists" can do the "old pokémon in nu style" easily but never the "new pokémon in old style"
That Crabrawler though.
1: I asked Masuda-san and his reply was "Hahaha that takes too much effort but we can try bringing back Kanto forms again!"
2: Genwunner normalfags wouldn't like that. Only the original 151 matter.
All of them are worse than their originals.
G1 eelektross would still have round eyes
stop this "every kantomon has triangle eyes" meme
6/10, weird face, but otherwise fine
9/10, massive improvement
7/10, solid, improved design, but not different enough from Bulbasaur
Somehow you made nugen designs worse, thanks OP.
That eelektross is kino
Somehow you made nugen designs better, thanks OP.
it's a shame because so many nu-gen pokemon could look amazing in the gen 1 art style
>official demonym of Kanto is "Kantonian"
Why post a picture of that hack?
So Japanese is a racist term?
What should we call them? Japanian? Asian Islander descendant? Sushi?
>Literally a midget arcanine
>What the fuck
That's literally not how regional form works retardo.
Soulful idea. That Elektross looks great.
>Gen 1 Froakie is Bulbasasur and not Poliwhirl
>starts off as tadpoles, later becoming frogs
>already born as frogs
Are there any real-world examples of this? Certain species maturing into a different form, while other similar species are already born that way?
Ants undergo a complete metamorphosis (egg - larva - pupa- adult).
Termites undergo an incomplete metamorphosis (egg - multiple nymph stages visually getting closer in appearance to adults - adult).
Zorotypus (angel insect) also undergoes an incomplete metamorphosis, but the nymphs look exactly like adults, only smaller.
Some rare frog species skip the tadpole stage, yes.
A new species of tiny frog that has no tadpole stage was discovered in Mexico just last year.
