            Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse are both furry icons, yes, you fucking retard. Jesus Christ, Pokemon are best when they're monsters or fantasy animals, not human language speaking mascots that act like specific cartoon characters. When Pokemon stop being species where each mom can have its own unique personality within the species, and instead Pokemon become a bunch of clones, where every Inteleon has the same personality like they're all one specific cartoon character, is when the soul dies.

              It's not their fault you have no imagination. A Pokemon species being based on a secret agent or a soccer player doesn't mean different members of the species can't have different personalities. We've even seen that on display.

                What, like good soccer player or bad soccer player? Lmao, no. They all look like they're wearing the same clothes, like they already have an outfit on over their animal body. It isn't a lack of imagination on the part of the player, it's a lack of imagination on the part of the designers. They designed a cartoon protagonist, instead of a blank slate animal species. Every Inteleon is the same, every Incineroar is the same. There's a reason why Machamps don't get as much love as Charizard, and it's because every Machamp is basically the same. They're muscle men, that's it, while a Charizard can be a lot of different things. The more specific the design is, the worse it is. Why is classic Weezing better than Galarian Weezing? Because classic Weezing isn't so specific, it's not a British guy with a beard and a top hat, it's an actual species of creature.

                Imagine if you went to the animal shelter to adopt a pet and there were Golden Retrievers, Pitbulls, Pugs, German Shepard, and then one species of dog where every dog wears a sumbrero and exists to make tacos, every one of those sumbrero wearing dogs is permanent taco chef and they'll only be happy if you let them have access to your kitchen and cook tacos all day, if you every try to do anything with the dog aside from cook tacos it will get depressed. That's what jobmons are like.

Vanillite is a fun gimmick turning the concept of pokemon on its head; where the concept of the fucking series is that pokemon are based on real life things, vanilites concept is that the real life things of the pokemon world are based on the pokemon first - which further makes the pokemon world a refraction of our own world.

                Why are you having such a hard time with basic ideas?
                The point of Pidgey is to be a pigeon. That is the point. It is effective and therefore good. The point of all pokemon is to reflect the thing they represent. It is simple.
                Not all fiction is based on this premise. In fact, the strength of fiction is that it doesn't need to abide by reality. HP Lovecraft's stories are powerful purely because he writes about unknowable things, something that can only be achieved in writing.
                Pokemon are allegorical monsters. That is the premise of all pokemon. The series is unique in its broad scope of adapting every/any concept into a monster. Any thing can be realised as a pokemon. This is a positive thing.
                What are you trying to argue exactly? I'm just responding to adults who don't understand these basic ideas. Why are you trying to argue with me when you clearly don't understand them either?

              "Wrestler", "spy", or "soccer player" are roles, not personalities. The only thing those define are how the Pokemon functions in battle. Their actual personalities can still differ between different members of the species.

                All psychic can connect with people by definition, in one way or another. The whole limitation on their speech is purely artificial for cutesy aspect and for the narration sake. Coherent speech and ability to directly express one's thought was always seen as a cornerstone of intelligent species. You can't have such species to be put in pokeball or slave-fight on the arenas, that's becomes a bit concerning and odd. So the abstraction was created for the series as a way to ease this aspect. Not that it helped much, Pokemon ARE esentially slave in canonical universe

                I neve said they should be? I agree, that is the entire point. It is essentially same reason why it is dumb to add tits to Gardevoir, for example. Same underlying core reason. I agree with you wholeheartedly here.

                > When they make them more like humans instead of like non-human animals, that's the problem.
                I disagree. I think the visual designs or Braixen/Kirlia/Gardevoir are great. They are still keeping the same approach to the rest of characterization and archetype, but trying to move from feral design for wider freedom.
                Some, though, do become a bit weird, like Delphox. In the anime, at least, she behaves way too human, which at moments almost jarring.

There are some seriously underdeveloped ideas in the newer couple of generations of pokemon and that's a failure of the decision makers at gamefreak, as well as the pressure to make monsters easy to turn into plush toys.

      Define "good design", because it literally just means that what the thing is meant to be based on is apparent. All of the new mons shown so far are very obvious. The aesthetic is not as distinctive or charming as the original pokemon and they really need to get the franchise's identity back.

    Pokemon was always about cute and cartoony designs. Satoshi Tajiri was pushing for those types of designs since Gen I. And of course a game about fantasy critters is going to heavily borrow from our own critters in the real world. Crying about those types of designs is like a SMT crying about designs based off myths and spirits.

        My point is that the OP crying about designs that have been present since Gen I. I mean crying about "just a dog" when Pidgey exists. As shown in Tajiri's biography friendly designs are the key factor here. According to the biography Ken Sugimori saw Pokémon as friendly beasts so the main inspiration for Pokémon was, and I would argue still is, real animals in our world. Tajiri's issue with this wasn't the source of inspiration or what he thought Pokémon are, he himself think of Pokémon as being like cats and dogs, but just that fact that Sugimori's designs weren't friendly looking enough.

        It's revealed that's why Tajiri hired 3 other artist to make friendlier designs *and* expand the variety of designs. Basically people have this narrow view of what a Pokémon should look like when in reality Pokémon designs are varied in inspiration and the things people bitch about have been present since Gen I.

          Why do I, or you, or anyone else should care?
          It is no longer about some original incel fantasy, it is about what it became NOW. What it grew into, especially in the community. As a concept and an idea, Pokemon does not belong to anyone now.

      Yes but the Kanto starters looks both cool and cute, you can't say the same about the Paldea starters.

    Pokemon was never about cool monsters. It is about monsters designed to embody things from the real world as an allegory for a child growing up and seeing the wonders of the real world (before they become a wageslave). I guess your brain is too weak to understand basic ideas that the games feed to you. That being said, Galar had a load of pointless trash that made no sense like Mr mime becoming jimmy saville and dog becomes different dog and is electric for no reason and tea but a ghost.

        Keep crying, keep being angry because a children's game is too high concept for you.
        The only pokemon that is a random monster is the Bulbasaur line, which is intentionally the idea of random monster

      I don't even watch the show or play the game. Garevoir's concept and design alone got me in, but I still havent succumbed to the ashnime or game series (outside of the episodes with waif)

          Kek.
          I mean, if I had a way to prove it I did probably do it, just for the sake of it, but I dont really care. I like some pokemans but anime is too childish. And the games... before I even discovered pokemon games I've experienced the same gameplay design but in much more complex and interesting form. And since then there hasnt been a single advancement on the field. Literally every single Pokemon game is the same, 1:1, pure carbon copy trash. I can understand playing one of them out of curiosity, but repeatedly suffering through ALL of them all your life is fucking madness

      >>just a frog
      Where?
      with a squirrel tail
      You mean Squirtle? It doesn't have a squirrel tail
      >>just a rat
      Yes.
      >>just a bird
      Kind of.
      >>just a bird (again)
      There are a lot of birds and showing basic animals and then scaling up the concepts is basic game design to have the child playing first see "this is a bird ok" and then think about the ones that aren't so simple. Sorry your brain can't handle basic thought.
      >>just a worm
      Where?
      >>just another worm
      Shuckle? That's the only worm.
      >>just a bee
      There is no just a bee pokemon
      >>just a butterfly
      Hm?
      >>just a rat (forma de yellow)
      That's a pun monster based on Japanese language, not a rat
      >>just a pangolin
      Not really.
      seperate lines that are just offshoots of kirby
      You're being deliberately retarded.

        >>>just a frog
        He probably meant Bulbasaur which is dumb for several reasons

        [...]

        with a squirrel tail
        Just a turtle then
        >>>just a bird
        Yes. Most of the pokemon birds are kinda just birds.
        >>>just a bird (again)
        Yes
        >>>just a worm
        Probably meant Caterpie. Which should be just a caterpillar in that case.
        >>>just another worm
        Probably meant weedle. I guess it's kinda worm like.
        >>>just a bee
        Probably meant Beedrill which is more of a wasp creature
        >>>just a butterfly
        Butterfree. Yes.
        >>>just a rat (forma de yellow)
        Pikachu is a weird rat creature to be fair.
        >>>just a pangolin
        Yeah. Not really.

        [...]

        seperate lines that are just offshoots of kirby
        I also think this is dumb but there are a lot of pink round fellas

        Most of the early mons are simple. But being simple is not a bad thing.

    >Pokemon isn't about cool monsters anymore?

    Does this (image) answers your question, Anon?

    The "cool monsters"-type Pokemon back in the day were literally designed similar to that of generic RPG monsters with some real-world animals inspiration sprinkled in.

    Just play the Gen 1 games, and then play the other RPG games back in the 90s and will see my point.

    You don't see those types of shit anymore because ever since the whole RPG craze of the 90s has died out, so GF decided to make their monsters more fleshed out and original instead of bland-looking fantasy creatures.

        Even if you disagree, there were also the concept of summoning monsters in RPGs that could be seen as an earlier version of the whole monster-collecting genre that Pokemon has since popularized. The first games were still just like any other RPGs series at the time.
