No wonder a lot of designs this gen look more like Kirby/Mario enemies than Pokémon.

Just fire him already for fuck sake.

Gen 2's Pokemon are the most Kirby-esque of them all.

He doesn't design them, he just overlooks the design process and OKs what's passable. The suits are still the ones who make the decisions of what vibes they want and what designs they like. Now stop being mad that he likes to draw that way for his cutesy twitter account.

Chewtle doesn't look like Mario or Kirby.
At the very best it looks like it belongs in an early Bugs Bunny cartoon with one of the McKimson brothers involved.

I don't get Pokémon design prescriptivism since even Gen 1 opened the door for designs not following one singular rule on Pokémon eyes or rugged vs soft shapes.

not them but it's an incredibly weak dex that lacks any identity

>>47338873
Not at all. The Mario/Kirby enemy aesthetic is a saving grace. Stonjourner is ridiculous, but stuff like Falinks, Hatrem, Impydimp etc. are legit refreshing. Super tired of the animal+element thing.
>>
>>47342051
aside the design itself being horrendous, "le epic reference xD" is completely out of place. Kiss arent even british, pokemon has nothing to do with music bands, doesnt even have a sound/music based movepool

it boils down to "ahah a badger's fur patterns kinda sorta looks like glamrock face paint"
>>

you can make a homage without ruining a design for the sake of it

What these anons said is true. And I actually think Gen 4 is one of the better generations all around. Looking at that compilation picture of the Dex though, alongside what that one anon said about the lack of group identity, it really comes off more like a loose expansion pack of Pokemon. Just an additional hundred and seven splashed in to the last dex to fill the world up some more and maybe round out some shitmons like Aipom with an evolution. Didn't work by the way.

I feel like SwSh and other such games going forward should really begin with the initial 251/386/493 or something, along with a handful of newer designs for the current generation, to maximize model animation quality, then add the older mons in as free DLC, but they'll never do this. That's just an aside though, not sure why I put it in this post.

>>47338873
The thing is, a lot of them are still considerably less well designed than Kirby and Mario designs. I wouldn’t have as much of an issue if they were actually neat looking but out of that list the only one I like is Falinks.

>>
>>47341313
it's genuinely one of the worst dexes in the series, only gen 8 comes close
there's a couple of standouts but it's a small dex to begin with and the good to mediocre or bad ratio is pretty bad compared to the average new lineup
>>
>>47342183
god it's even worse in animation since the holes jump around
like it literally takes more effort to choose where to put the holes while still colouring within the intended boundary

England has a culture and love for rock music. To the point where British Rock is its own subgenre. Evidenced by several music themed monsters in this region. Even Piers entire get-up is based on punk rock and glam metal aesthetics.

Obsessed, gen 4 will always be the best gen through all your cope and seethe
>>
>>47346679
Because KISS is the most popular foreign band in Japan. For whatever they really bought into their specific flavour of glam rock, to the point most Jap rock bands are directly or indirectly inspired by them. Just loop up any random J-metal band. The chance of them having facepaint and glittery costumes is over 50%.
The Japs probably can’t differentiate between most subgenres of western rock, so they probably just associated the British punk scene with KISS because of the vaguely similar aesthetic (leather, spikes, wild hair, etc)
>>
>>47342152
I get the feeling Sinnoh’s pokedex wasn’t really meant to stand on its own, but instead be populated with plenty of crossgen pokemon. Looking at Gen 4 pokemon in isolation is like looking at Gen 2 pokemon in isolation.

Yeah, but you can excuse gen 2 because it's right next to kanto, which you can actually visit in game, so it feels like a sequel, and delivers as a sequel in the end.

I know Poison, and I know more about Japanese pop culture than you apparently. Obstagoon is obviously based on KISS. You’re being a contrarian for the sake of it.
