      Galar was significantly better than this dex. Like what in this dex is actually good? IMO Galar was like gen 6, it was mostly a bad dex with a couple of cool ones. This dex is 100% garbage.

      Awful starters but meh dex. At least some feel like Pokemon unlike Alola.

      Alola was the last gen of real pokemon and was better than gen 6.

        Honestly, I fully believe now that having a dex that has a strong central theme and a wide pool of consistent inspirations for its Pokémon is the way to go. IMO, Alola has the best good-to-bad ratio and it's partially because it feels like a real ecosystem.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Yeah, I think Alola did the best job of any gen of contextualizing its pokemon. Part of that I think was due to the alola forms being the first of their kind and there being effort put into explaining that. It also had a more cohesive design style than gen 6, in some ways it made me like a lot of designs that I otherwise would have slept on a lot more.

          I was really sad that they took the tack they did with gen 8. Alola was looking like they wanted to focus more on worldbuilding and try some new stuff. Instead we got soulless and boring open worlds.

      As to why this game has a confusing order. I think that’s how their indexed into the game. Pokémon inserted into the game are ordered differently than their typical national or regional dex order.

      Between making 2 games back to back within a year and having to crunch for a holiday release with a 1GB patch on launch, I genuinely think the order has narrated was the least of their concerns.

      Alternatively, games are segmented from each other for the most part. The only thing that matters now is what’s in a regional dex and whether it can be transferred or not. Is there a point to a national dex order other than this is how many Pokémon we’ve made? There are evolution lines separated by numerous gens only because they got an evo appended years later. It honestly looks bad from a design perspective

    I like it better than gen8 but no by much, major issues.

    -some mons just dont look like pokemon (the megaman duo as an example)
    -way too many lazy evos (the pawmi line as the worse offender)
    -too many mons feel like they were designed with 3d first and to be as easy to animate as possible (the grasshopper evo is probably the ones who suffers the worst from this, could have been another Golisopod or Volcarona tier coolmon but its just...not good)

        It's likely she didn't play Pokemon when she was younger because female gamers were statistically a rarity and RPGs were considered for nerds. That alone makes her out of touch with the fanbase.
        Women tend also to have a relatively low threshold for pressure and competitiveness which are dominant aspects of the corporate environment so they just tend to hastily wrap projects up with little quality control. It's a biological thing, try injecting woman-amounts of estrogen and see how you become an emotional wreck. The trannies know this all too well.

            Women in sports inject roids so their personalities are overridden by the increased aggressiveness (and then they becone even worse emotional wrecks during the post-cycle) and as for the military 99% of them are placed in low-risk and low-combat roles.
            You're not going to employ a woman in high-profile missions that involve being stuck with a team of men in some shithole for weeks.
            PMS is real and kills their productivity for a week each month, this is why we have a wage gap. For all intents and purposes in the work environment a woman is 75% of a man.

    Some designs that I really like others than I dislike.
    My main complaint are that the future mons are very uninspired, most of them are just a metallic carbon copy of the original. Meowscaradda is probably the most corporate pokemon yet. It copied most of the design choices that made Cinderace popular and goes as far as having an identical ability and a similar stat distribution. As a grassfag AND a pokefucker, I'm most likely the prime target for that kind of design but all I'm saying when looking at that mon is a bunch of executives ticking boxes.

      This with the grass starter and even gen 8s trashrabbit was a shameless attempt at ripping off Greninja’s popularity so by default, I’m obligated to hate it. Whats even worse is that gamefreak couldn’t even be asked to do something different to distinguish them from the frog and instead made trashrabbit and weedcats stat distribution almost the same as the frog in structure. The rabbits other signature move worthless as its not designed as a defensive mon or has the bulk to actually take advantage of the move and the cats primary type is known to be a great in the utility department but its stat distribution just makes it a hyper offensive glass cannon so barely anyone will actually try for a utility build.

    Only 32 out of 105 are acceptable imo. So many uncreative (pre-)evolutions this time. Pokemon like Pawmo and Tinkatink lack any hint of personality and exist only to fill up the dex. Future Paradoxes are a big disappointment. Individually judged, some of them look good (Iron Moth), but it's lazy how they just took a Pokemon, applied a metallic texture, and called it a day. There have always been silly-looking Pokemon and they aren't necessarily bad (Wooper, Bellibolt), but a lot of Pokemon in this Gen would look so much better if their faces and proportions looked more realistic, beast-like, intimidating, or serious. Ceruledge for example would look so much better with sharper eyes and a smaller, less round head. Meowscarade should have a smaller mask, a smaller mustache for Kingambit, and so on.

    I like it, it really pushes what you are and aren’t okay with as a Pokémon and I think that’s why there’s so much fucking doomposting surrounding it but generally speaking I think it’s a solid and really unique dex.

    I like that they got weird after Galar’s dex which I didn’t like at all. It’s not even the fact that there’s a few truly awful designs in that dex and more that I feel completely indifferent towards the majority. With Paldea I at least feel something towards most of the dex as opposed to apathy across the board.

    Easily the worst dex ever and its not even close.

    Galar also had a weak dex but at least there were a couple of design standouts you'd easily be able to argue are objectively in the top 10% of all Pokemon.

    Conversely even Gen 9s best Pokemon are in the bottom tiers design-wise, and the rest are unbelievably bad and forgettable. It's like an entire generation of Stonejourner.

    Even the good designs don't look good in practice; the concept and artwork of Skeledirge is awesome and its going to look great in the TCG, but its model is so lazily designed that the fire is just a big blob with a fire texture and so it looks like hair instead of flame breath. They did the same thing with Mega Charizard Z back in Gen 6/7 but at least it was only a few tiny wisps and not covering its entire head.

    There are unbelievably lazy designs, like Dundunsparce, the dolphins first form, the giant worm thing, or most of the future forms just being mech versions of the regular Pokemon design. There are unbelievably bad designs, like the spider, the ghost dog that looks like Mutley, the three-stage electric rodent/bear and the salt... thing. Most of the dex falls into one or two of these categories.

    There are two Pokemon this generation that I would say are good: Annihilape and the past Salamence. Maybe the Bisharp evo. Kilowattrell is I suppose an inoffensive design at least. Other than that, awful.

    There’s some god tier designs, there’s some absolutely bottom of the barrel shit, but the dex itself is mostly inoffensive.

    How in the fuck is this better than gen 8, why are there so many retards saying it, are these desperate Scat/Vomit shills?
    At least gen 8 still looked like Pokemon, gen 8 still had variation, gen 8 still had evolutions that differed and improved from the previous forms, gen 8 still had a couple marvelous designs like Centiscorch and Hattarene. Gen 8 still had a Pseudo legend that looked like a Pseudo legend.

    This trash gen is all toys, robots and basic shapes, most of these don't even look like Pokemon.
    Two starters are trannies. FIVE (5) bird lines (6 if you count the starter), THREE (3) dog lines.
    Multiple lines that belong in other franchises, hammer blob belongs in kirby, mouse family belongs in hello kitty, the bugs and Klwaf belong in Bugsnax. Ceruledge and Armarouge belong in Megaman Battle Network, Nacli line belongs in Mario and Minecraft.
    The hammer blob and pawmi lines do not justify 3 dex spots, almost every evolution is a it-just-gets-biger and the few that don't are ruin the line like the olive tree, the dolphin and the reddit mascot that collects coins.

    What I really dislike is how designs went from "nature with a twist" to "here's some profession but done by an animal!" for starters
    >Gen1
    >Gen 2
    literally just animals with elemental themes, as it should be
    >Gen 3
    >Gen 4
    Blaziken and Infernape are a little bit arguable but generally still good
    >Gen 5
    This is where shit starts, Tepig and Oshawott are clearly inspired by professions, though it's still okayish because it's not literally furbait but more animal than humanesque
    >Gen 6
    Fennekin goes full furry, Froakie basically is "ninja but a frog" instead of "frog but a ninja" as it should be, and that was the tipping point between a good and bad design
    >Gen 7
    >Gen 8
    all downhill from here, Gen 8 literally is "soccer player but a bunny", "spy but a frog" and "drum player but a monke" with zero room for interpretation
    >Gen 9
    two starters become LGBTQ furbait and you cant tell me fucking otherwise, what is this garbage

    i mean i still like some of these designs but it doesnt feel right to make shit like that fight
