I remember when this was first leaked everyone hated it. Now they love it. What happened? Now it gets general on this site.
>people make dumb as fuck overreactions based on shitty leaked images>form actual opinions when the game comes out and they actually get to see the monwoah that's crazy
>>53471107I still fucking hate it.
>>53471107this board is full of metafaggots who's tricked themselves into believing they like it because it's good competitively
>>53471107I don't like it. I just don't spam that I don't.
>>53471107He's a funny surfer mascot character which are generally alright when not oversaturated. Combine that with nostalgia, memes about it's appearance and Make it Rain, compfaggotry, and the fact that normies don't care about what "should be" a Pokemon and you have your answer.
>>53471107Until you realize Gamefreak steals ideas
>>53471107I still hate it, awful design. Also hilarious how clearly it shows the direction that this franchise went in.>pokemon 001>odd little creature that looks like it could be found in the woods behind your house>pokemon 1000>literally pure money with a marketable personality and extremely strong movepool/ability/typing
>>53471338The didn't steal it. One day in the idea room somebody got hungry, pulled out a cheese string and the boss when "Yes." and thats how Gholdengo was born
>>53471107ironically I liked it more when it was first revealed than I do now
>>53471356It's still kind of stealing imo because they based the design off an already existing concept but put their own twist to it.
>>53471107I still hate it, a LOT!One of my least favorite designs in this entire franchise.
>>53471390>Rattata is a ripoff of rats
>>53471390i think it's just a reference just like the many unnecessary godzilla references
>>53471107I don't care what people think, I hate this thing. This and the starters from the past few gens are the worst designs in the series
>>53471107I still hate it, it looks like shit.
Looks shit but it's nowhere near as bad as Duraldon. Fuck the cunt that made that ugly shit. >Supposed to be a rival to Tyranitar
>>53471348I feel like saying those are indicative of modern Pokemon's deisgn philosphies beyond "increasingly inane mechanics" and "allowed to be quirky over just an animal" (which was kind of just reserved to shit like Mr. Mime at the start.) is a little disingenious. We got... Dudunsparce at the same time after all.
>Pokemon 1,000>Cash grabI think I know where Gamefreak was going with this.
>>53471525I didn't say anything about design philosophy.
It gets a general because people want to fuck it
>>53471949Isn't that one of the biggest indicators of change in the series though?
>>53471107I still hate it
It's a really good mon in comp play. That's it.
>>53471952Yeah and that's not because it looks cool, some people have a fetish on goofy things
>>53471107people just love cheese
>>53472472You could argue that, but it wasn't the point I was making.
Gotta store the gimmighouls somewhere
People pretend to like it because of it's broken ability
>>53471107of all the doesn't look like a pokemon designs this is pretty fucking high up there
>>53471107I hate its design still, but I'm not about to enter a thread about something I don't like just to complain about it. Just let them have their fun.
Leaked design? Cringe!Official Game Freak design? Take my money!
>>53471107I still fucking hate it, I just don’t spam that I do because I’m not an obnoxious wojakposter or the deranged Inteleon fag who’s been spamming threads daily for over a week now
>>53471107>Now they love it.Only retards and faggots "love" this thing
>>53471107people who hate it,me included, got tired of complaining. plus it's actually good to use so you gotta deal with seeing it everywhere
>>53471952If the only reason people like a design is because they wanna fuck it then it isn't a good design.
>>53471107i like him he's my friend :)
>>53471107I like its design. I think it's cute.It can go fuck itself in competitive though
its good competitivelythats it
>>53475220What if I just wanna feed him cereal
>>53471107What a dumb fucking pokemon. Gen 1 and 3 had peak design
>>53471107Still looks like that awful string cheese mascot.
>>53471107i still hold my belief that it's an ugly cheese stick mascot that they stolefuck gen 9it was a mistake
