This guy is the art director of Pokémon 2019. We’re in good hands
>>
>>37362262
I 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.
>>
>>37362262
based 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.
>>
>>37362274
At 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.
>>
>>37362296
You 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.
>>
>>37362328
For example?
>>
>>37362353
Love poipole and the phantump line, hate the icecreams and everything ultra beast.
>>
>>37362328
Ditto. Generally he's better off designing rare and legendary pokemon.
>>
>>37362361
Ok, I like every single on of his Pokémon, it comes down to taste.
>>
>>37362349
Well 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.

Yeah i can't wait for every pokemon to look like cartoon network rejects!
>>

>>
>>37362262
Mandibuzz, Trevenant, and Golurk are fabulous
>>
>>37362382
>good gen 1 Pokèmon
Blast kiss, Gengar, Omastar, Kabutops, Marowak, Dugtrio
>Good gen 5 Pokèmon
Chandelure, Volcarona, Golurk, Whimsicott, Lilligant, Krookodile, Cofagrigus, Escavalier, Reuniclus, Hydreigon and so on
>>
>>37362262
Question, who drew Decidueye and co?
>>
>>37362268
Don't forget Hitoshi Ariga
>>

What about our beautiful swole boi?
>>
>>37362408
What 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
>>
>>37362411
Not 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.
>>
>>37362419
You're the reason why phoneposters have that reputation, senpai.
>>
>>37362420
It's known that it's Ohmori already.
>>
>>37362401
Does he publicly disclose his contributions? I do notice that we know quite a few designs by him, most of which are stellar.
>>
>>37362427
Source?
>>
>>37362446
>i'm too dumb to use google

really
>>
>>37362446
source is his ass

All we have are rumors. Nothing is confirmed.
>>
>>37362455
There’s literally nothing that says what you say
>>
>>37362428
Not sure if he told people himself but theres a list of his mons on bulbapedo.

I think that's the point, so ijust comes down to whether you just like it or not

Well if you get that the design difference is intended, why do you say anyway that they "look dumb and overdesigned"?

Because 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.

Oh my God I'm fucking dying hoooly shit
>>
>>37362704
What are you even saying here, that you don't like the concept?
>>
>>37363310
It'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.
>>
>>37362393
Mandibuzz being female only is pretty strange. Was the order of operations female only bird and then design a vulture with bone armor?

It'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.
>>
>>37362274
There are plenty of games in the past where art direction has carried the game
>>
>>37362290
Turners 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.
>>
>>37363330
OK what's the context of the ultra beasts because now you just sound retarded
>>
>>37363508
https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ultra_Beast
>>
>>37362349
I liked most Gen 5 designs.
>>
>>37363646
So you're saying that Ultra Beasts won't be Ultra Beasts

I 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.

Fuck off nigger, we don't want your kind here.

And yet....... This drawing forgot that he designed the ever popular Shadow Lugia from Pokémon XD Gale of Darkness on the GameCube.
>>
>>37364509
>XD
fuck off
>>
>>37362262
The only designs I dislike here are the ice-cream one and Guzzlord. Poipole is really good though.
>>
>>37362364
Mmmm... taste...
>>
>>37364509
>literally just a nigger Lugia with 3D glasses

Looks like Ultra Necrozma now that I think about it
>>
Buzzwole is unironically his most unique and original design.

>>
>>37362349
Agree, 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

>>37362268
Muneo Saito tweeted about the process of creating the beasts and Atsuko Nishida gave interviews
