Is Cacturne a bad design?
I tried to retrospectively criticize older designs without the nostalgia bias.
His limbs are just unfunctional simplistic blob outlines, the spines are just basic diamond shapes, I like the eyes and the shape of the mouth. But the lack of shape and details outweighs the goods.
This is a well liked Pokemon but I can't find objective qualities to call it a good design, it would even fit nu-Pokemon style more than many other nu-Pokemon.

    No because it’s a plant and they don’t need to follow the fundamental rules of non-plant creatures

    Nah, it's not a bad design but it does feel a bit lacking, but only in the way that middle stage mons feel lacking. There's more that could have been done with it but it's fine as is.
    But it's also a scarecrow cactus that evolves from a voodoo doll cactus so what more do you really expect from it

      i don't dislike it but really his theme is barely apparent in its design, nothin wrong with subtlety but he should've had some more details

      honestly had no idea cacnea was supposed to be a voodoo doll

    Don't use the word 'objective' if you aren't actually going to be objective. First define what it means to be a good or bad design.

    The limbs are what cactus "limbs" look like.

    This isn't anything new for Grass types. Mons like Gloom and Vileplume are the same way.
