Like someone stated, Fennekin is not the same fox species as Vulpix & Ninetales; Nintales & Vulpix are Kitsune foxes, & Fennekin is as it's name states, a fennec fox (like most of Eeevee's evolutions).
I was disappointed with these starters, mainly because the fire & grass ones did not stick to the general starter rules (grass ones being reptilians, & Fire ones being based on animals from the Chinese calender). Gen 5 had some sick-ass starers, but this one, of all, I only like Fennekin, because it's design is pretty cool. Froakie is the only one that did stick to it's starter rule (being both aquatic & terrestrial), & it might be pretty cool. But Chespin, no, just no. I've seen plenty of people use a mammal as a grass starter for the fakemon, & pretty much none of them work too well (save for =lydario's grass starter). I would be surprised if Chespin could turn out as badass as Serperior.
As far as the Franchise goes, I don't mind it; I'm glad it went over 2 generations, because unlike what most ignorant fucktards around here think, if Pokemon stopped at gen 2, it would easily have died out, fast. At a certain point, I was actually beginning to give less of a shit about Pokemon & forgetting about it. It wasn't until gen 3 that re-awoke that love I had for Pokemon & the older ones. Gen 3 revived the franchise. But if anything, I just hope this gen makes a lot of the ideas that SHOULD have been made. I mean, Gen 5 did that by a long shot (a sarcophagus, a pure flying type, snake starter, archeopteryx, tons of ghost types); but gen 6 could hopefully have more of what they were really missing: a peacock, platypus, more cephalapods (Octillery sucks), mermaids, dolphin, Jack-o-lanterns, voodoo dolls, ghost ships, & even some more exotic insects!
Anyways, Nintendo plans to finally end the Pokemon generations with this one as far as I'm concerned. I'm actually just wondering what Pokemon #666 will be haha.
I like some of the new pokemon but some I don't. I like munna and lilipup ( well its evolved for more ) but i do miss the old pokemon . the fact that they just started fresh like nothing happened diasapoints me. I grew up watching pokemon advanced, advanced battle, and I recall watching some season 2 when I was little. I think the new poekmon is alright but its not like the good old stuff.
Yeahh, I kinda know what you mean. I dunno, the Pokemon designs just seem different to me. Aside from the obvious reasons lol. Like I dunno. Some of the new Pokemon are really clever, and the others...were they even trying?
I've been a huge character designer for years, studied Pokemon & their designing, as well as digging deeper into the concepts of them, so I would see why people would complain, but only to a handful of them. I mean, i hear so many people complain over something clever as a chandelier (a homage to haunted artifacts, & how ghostly entities adore messing with chandeliers) but I don't hear anyone complain to something like Mr. Mime (it's just a human with no nose). You can argue that same thing about Jynx, but at least she's called the "Human-shape Pokemon" for a reason.
Oh god, I hate Mr Mime and Jynx so much. And I really don't have a problem with Chandelure It's more like I guess I'm stuck on the kind of designs like Magikarp and stuff. ^^ And I don't look as far into design concepts like you do so I don't notice as much. What other ones are there?
I'd say those two are one of the very few Pokemon out there that deserves an evolution (especially Jynx, since I actually like her). Well Magikarp's main problem is how much of a troll it is in the games & how useless it could be if it didn't evolve.
Well, there's Whimsicott, based on Elves & Brazilian prankster critters. Sigilyph, based on ancient artifacts. Cofagrigus, based on Mummy tombs & the curse of the mummy (idea that should have been long ago). Gothitelle being a fortune teller, & Reuniclus based on a water bear. Elgyem & it's evo being based on alien greys. Stunfisk, despite being a terrible Pokemon, is based on a flounder (another design they surprisingly didn't do earlier). Hydreigon, being based on the mythological hydra. Drifblim being a ghostly blimp. Lopunny being a bipedal rabbit & playboy bunny. Mismagius being a banshee. Luvdisc, while it's design may be simple, it's actually based on a discus fish as well as a kissing gourami for it's kissing habit. Claydol being based on ancient figures. Gardevoir being a guardian angel & ballroom dancer. Delcatty, despite it's poor stats & awful movepool, is a prim cat with a poodle haircut.
