This guy is the art director of Pokémon 2019. We’re in good hands
>>37362262I wish we knew the designers for every Pokémon. Only Turner just tells people what he did. The rest is just stuff we pick up here and there. Cultural divide.
>>37362262based white people saving pokemon
Art director doesn't matter when the other director is going to fuck us like he did in ORAS and two-thirds of a gen after.
>>37362274At least the new Pokémon will be good, right?Right?
Is Hitoshi Ariga still going to be making designs? All of his designs are solid.
I can't wait for all the moaning about how Pokemon designs have lost their way since KANTOOOOO.../s
Very hit n miss designs. Half of them are great, the other half should have never moved past the conceptual phase.
>>37362296You want the hottest of takes? Gen 5 had a better ratio of good designs than Gen 1 did. And I say this as someone who's been playing since RBY.
>>37362353Love poipole and the phantump line, hate the icecreams and everything ultra beast.
>>37362328Ditto. Generally he's better off designing rare and legendary pokemon.
>>37362361Ok, I like every single on of his Pokémon, it comes down to taste.
>>37362349Well it's true, about 15 gen 5 design are good, with the rest being total garbage, meanwhile only 120 gen 1 design are good, with the other being mediocre to bad.
>>37362262Yeah i can't wait for every pokemon to look like cartoon network rejects!
>>37362382beautiful reading comprehension
>>37362262Mandibuzz, Trevenant, and Golurk are fabulous
>>37362382>good gen 1 PokèmonBlast kiss, Gengar, Omastar, Kabutops, Marowak, Dugtrio>Good gen 5 PokèmonChandelure, Volcarona, Golurk, Whimsicott, Lilligant, Krookodile, Cofagrigus, Escavalier, Reuniclus, Hydreigon and so on
>>37362262Question, who drew Decidueye and co?
>>37362268Don't forget Hitoshi Ariga
>>37362393What about our beautiful swole boi?
>>37362408What the fuck, I meant Blastoise!Inb4 PhOnEpOsTiNg REEEEEEEE!
If the actual game director turns out to be Morimoto I will tell people that I sold my used panties to preorder it
>>37362411Not a bad design, per se, but I don't think any of the UBs really aesthetically belong in Pokemon. I get that some of it is intentional, but they just look dumb and overdesigned.
>>37362419You're the reason why phoneposters have that reputation, senpai.
>>37362420It's known that it's Ohmori already.
>>37362401Does he publicly disclose his contributions? I do notice that we know quite a few designs by him, most of which are stellar.
>>37362446>i'm too dumb to use googlereally
>>37362446source is his assAll we have are rumors. Nothing is confirmed.
>>37362455There’s literally nothing that says what you say
>>37362428Not sure if he told people himself but theres a list of his mons on bulbapedo.https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hitoshi_Ariga#Pok.C3.A9mon
>>37362421I think that's the point, so ijust comes down to whether you just like it or not
>>37362421>but I don't think any of the UBs really aesthetically belong in Pokemon. I get that some of it is intentional, but they just look dumb and overdesigned.Well if you get that the design difference is intended, why do you say anyway that they "look dumb and overdesigned"?
>>37362392What? What did I get wrong?
>>37362586>>37362589>>37362599>Falling for the bait
>>37362575Because saying that something looks intentionally retarded doesn't change the fact that it looks retarded and will look retarded in the future as the generations march forward, when the context of their retardedness isn't a central plot point.
>>37362398>Blast kissOh my God I'm fucking dying hoooly shit
>>37362704What are you even saying here, that you don't like the concept?
>>37363310It's pretty much plain English, my dude. The context of the Ultra Beasts will disappear in new gens outside of Dex entries because it won't be the main focus of those games. Without that context, the Beasts are just stupid looking. They'll look like the gimmick mons they are, if you want it super simple.
>>37362393Mandibuzz being female only is pretty strange. Was the order of operations female only bird and then design a vulture with bone armor?
>>37363354It's probably just a result of Braviary, but I don't get why it has to be male only either. I also don't think it was female only to begin with because its debut episode had one with a deep voice compared to another (season already used this method to show male/female several times), a male human merging with one in the ReBurst manga and James indirectly called one a boy - but that's all just straw-grasping bullshit.
>>37362274There are plenty of games in the past where art direction has carried the game
>>37362290Turners designs are more hit than miss so you shouold have faith.
the only pokemon by james turner i dont care for is mandibuzz. everything else oozes fun and personality.
>>37363330OK what's the context of the ultra beasts because now you just sound retarded
>>37362349I liked most Gen 5 designs.
>>37363646So you're saying that Ultra Beasts won't be Ultra Beasts
>>37362349I agree, by and large gen V looked better, I just wish they didn't do "Kanto but better" and instead applied that creativity more effectively.
>>37362296Fuck off nigger, we don't want your kind here.
>>37362421>overdesignedthe most annoying buzzword other than "digimon."
And yet....... This drawing forgot that he designed the ever popular Shadow Lugia from Pokémon XD Gale of Darkness on the GameCube.
>>37362262The only designs I dislike here are the ice-cream one and Guzzlord. Poipole is really good though.
>>37364509>literally just a nigger Lugia with 3D glassesLooks like Ultra Necrozma now that I think about it
Buzzwole is unironically his most unique and original design.
>>37362296>/sing a post like a redditor when it's quite obvious from the shitty KANTOOOOOO meme that nothing it was worth taking seriously
>>37362349Agree, I feel like some people are intentionally hating on Gen V just to be shitheads and troll people. I dont know how you can look at the dex and say that its mons are somehow SO MUCH WORSE than a lot of Gen 1 or 2 mons - some lines are fugly but there's definitely some greats. I also dont know how you can play that game and not enjoy the art style
>>37362268Muneo Saito tweeted about the process of creating the beasts and Atsuko Nishida gave interviews
>>37362349fuck right off
