Ugh, what are the designers thinking?

I mean, yeah, there have been some fairly similar pokemon from day 1, but at least pidgey and spearow are, y'know, not totally freaking identical!

Even into second gen they were at least adding some new concepts for these vendor trash pokemon, hoothoot is an owl, there were no owls before Hoothoot.

But now we have ANOTHER PIDGEON that looks almost identical to the rather derivative starling looking thing from a previous game. Arglbargl. Ruined forever.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

They've pretty much ran out of animals to base things off.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

That's more like it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

It's kind of sad since there are thousands upon thousands of animals, incests etc. they could have based their pokemon off of. Come on Gamefreak  :-\ I mean look at that Psychic type they just published. WHAT IN GODS NAME IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE!?

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

An elephant?

Who knows it might be another "small, but powerful" Legendary. :P

You'll never know why.

It could be a baby Drowzee. Yeah, the colour's all off, but it's classified as a 'Dream Eater' pokemon.

Hopefully, they'll have an ant Pokemon...

Spinarak already looked more like an ant than a spider.

That's probably the case, they have the nose...


And I was also wondering about something they could do in the anime. While at the same time having Ash & co going on a "Black and White" adventure or whatever have the twp PCs from the games in a parrarel spin-off anime, with there own separate plots stories and themes a more "traditional" anime.

Lush, everyone knows that the anime's main purpose is just a marketing scheme to advertise the franchise. Since when would a deep story-driven anime matter to them? It's a byproduct of corporate evil and Leo Burnett. You can't change that outlook. :P

I liked the anime the 1st time I saw it but I pretty quickly realized it was just the same episode again and again and again and again.

I may not be the only person who has this issue with the TV series but my point remains valid. In other news currently during a play through of Pokemon Platinum and trying to get me an Abra. The only Pokemon I have to prevent it from escaping is a mean look Gastly but it's too slow. Gaaah!
