Hi, my name is Grimm. And my name, is Ditto.
And we' re
here today,
to tell you
about us.
We are two of
the most
unoriginal
l okemon
Yet you people never recognize this. You' d rather just hate Generation 5.
Really? {:'mon, grow up. That' s silly. You love us, but we' re just blobs of
goo. Sure, there are some other odd Pokemon, but just LOOK AT us,
Mobs of goo. Seriously? Just because there are some Pokemon
created from he bream, you' re going to hate on an entire generation?
mon now, you' re better than that. We all are. so grow up, and get
over it. We are ALL Pokemon, like it or not.

I guarantee you didn't think they were unoriginal back when pokemon didn't suck dick. Face it, Pokemon went to **** almost as fast as the final fantasy series.

I have a dragon with axes for a face. Your argument is invalid.

I've heard this argument too many times now. Whenever the subject of origionality comes up, the first generation 1 critters to be criticised are Grimer and Muck, usually paired with Ditto. Now, let me explain why Grimer is a better design than Golurk, the ice cream thingies, and of course, everyone's favourite - the heaps of rubbish. First of all, Grimer is a BLOB MONSTER. What's so bad about that? Surely as a kid, we all imagined blob monsters lurking around consuming everything in their path (did anyone read the blob that ate everyone?). But who daydreamed about happy little ice cream monsters? Not me. How about piles of rubbish waddling around? Not that either. And the only Golem I'd ever praise is the good ol' fasioned generation 1 one. Why? Well, not because it's from the first generation, but because it has an interestung, yet simple design. It's based on a natural object, unlike many of the fifth gen. stuff (and yes, some gen. 1 creatures as well). Pokemon wearing clothes are also rightfully disliked, as it takes the 'wild' out of 'wild Pokemon'. I can't imagine many people having Mr. Mime as their favourite Pokemon, nor can I imagine Garbodor filling that slot, either.

Well, that lasted a bit longer than expected, but there you go; give poor little Grimer a break. I'd also like to mention that the fifth generation has introduced us to the best damned electric Pokemon ever to slither its way out of someone's imagination - Eelekross. What a beast.

May I direct your attention to Machoke, Machamp, Hitmonchan, and Jynx. While it's true that there are many more pokemon from Gen 5 that do wear clothes, there have been pokemon that wear clothes since Gen I so don't act as if it's a new thing, it isn't. And to believe that everyone imagined the same things you do is just, how should I put this, heaps of rubbish. I, for one, did not imagine blob monsters lurking and I'll bet there are many more that didn't. Everyone imagines different things.

I did some quick math; there are 10 pokemon in Gen I based on "unnatural" objects (this includes ghosts and man-made objects) which is roughly 7% of pokemon introduced in Gen I, and there are 16 pokemon based on "unnatural" from Gen 5 which makes up roughly 10% of pokemon introduced in Gen 5. With 3% difference, the ratio between "naturally-based" and "unnaturally-based" pokemon in each generation is not different enough for it to be of much significance. Also, I wouldn't say that Golem's design is simple as it has a boulder that has multiple cracks and mini plateaus on it. And for someone who wants to give Grimer and Muk a break, you should learn how to spell Muk.

TL;DR: This argument fails to mention clothed pokemon in Kanto and he didn't do research.

Interesting. However, I think you misread a few things I mentioned. First of all, you presumed that just because the clothed Pokemon such as Hitmonchan, Jynx, Machoke, etc. are generation one Pokemon, I think they're well designed - oh contraire. In fact, I hate them - I think they look terrible. I stated, 'I can't imagine many people having Mr. Mime as their favourite Pokemon, nor can I imagine Garbodor filling that slot, either'. By this, I meant that there are some terribly designed generation Pokemon out there - and Mr. Mime, with its gloves and clown ensemble, is one of the worst. You made an error - everyone does (yes, I accidently misspelled Muk, just as easily as I may go about spelling Gastly as 'Ghastly'). There are many gen. five Pokemon I consider as terribly designed for reasons such as, many of them are just furniture with eyes slapped on them. Or food. Or rubbish. There are many gen. one Pokemon like this too. However, Golem and Grimer are at least based on things that weren't just lying around in someone's lounge.

All right, then. I find that Gen 5 pokemon are pretty well designed, but we're just going to have to agree to disagree as this is a subject of opinion and I would like to settle this argument "as sirs" if you wouldn't mind.

The reason I like the orginals the best is because they were simplistic. Now all pokemon are like digimon with useless things on them.

sir u are f'n retarded. You did not create the or design the game or the pokemon, and because of this u have no real authority to say what does and does not look like a pokemon or a digimon for that matter. The only reason u like the originals better or any of the games for that matter is the old ones give you a feeling of nostalgia. I would also like to point out that if u played the originals you are probably an adult now, and are bitching about a game made for kids. Why your at it would u also like bitch about the wiggles and tell us and tom and jerry are so much better. or maybe how seasame street was so much better 10 years ago

nope ur just retarded, while ur right that the consumer has the right to judge, considering theyre still nintendos 2nd biggest money maker id say the consumer is still pretty happy, and while i do agree many thing in the new generation of todays youth such as music and other things are getting worse this is not one, while i do prefer the older ones, they are still kids games, and if kids are still buying them and enjoying them then theyre doing just fine, now how bout u act your age and stop bitching about a kids game

I never said that the new games are bad I just said I like the old ones better. I played the newer ones too and probably will continue to play them.

I think that along the way the creators op the Pokemon series got a little lost in their imagenation on how to make the pokemanz.

Gen 1 has pokemon which resemble animals in the real world and they kinda lost that along the way, with dumb ******** like icecream and a chandalier.

Grimer is a sewage monster, and I think that a 'blob' is a good resemblance to that.
And fucj yeah Ditto, that thing is just awesome.

Well Trubbish is essentially the same as Grimer in that sense.
It was created due to trashbags and chemical waste.
Grimer is the result of sludge exposed to X-rays from the moon.

bouffalent, bearctic, vullaby, foongus, turtuoga, durant sandile...

What was nidoran based off of... jigglypuff... voltorb, geodude, cubone.

None of the arguments work except 'I grew up, I dont like pokemon, I just like nostalgia.'

Foongus & Amoonguss. It literally just spells "fungus among us"
Archeops. A shortened (and misspelled) version of Archaeopteryx, which it is a copy of.
Bisharp. Bisexual Bishop that is Sharp.
Braviary. Brave Avian (bird)
Cottonee. it is cottony.
Cubchoo. its a cub that sneezes (achoo)
Excadrill. it excavates and drills.
Litwick. a wick that has been lit.
Klang. the sound this pokemon would make if you dropped it.
Gurdurr. a Girder which he holds. also adds 'Hurr' into it.
woobat. its a bat that woos people.

Meanwhile, in G1:
Pikachu: Pika (the sound of an electric spark in Japanese) + chu (the sound a mouse makes)
Nidoran: "Nidoran may be derived from needle. It may also come from cnidocyte, a type of venomous cell responsible for the stings delivered by stinging animals, most notably jellyfish. Alternatively, it may be based on ni (two) or nido (two times/two degrees) referring to the two distinct evolutionary lines with similar names and traits. Also, the Japanese word ran is translated as orchid in English. Orchids are flowers that can be purple or blue, these being the same colors as the male and female evolutionary forms of Nidoran, respectively.

It just feels like they put more effort into the older generations.

If not the actual pokemon, at least the names sound much better.

Its not the pokemon that put us off the new generations. Its just the fact that they will never be able to replicate the joy we had with gen one, everything was new and exciting back then. The newer gens follow the same formula, meaning you know what its all about before you even start, and that takes away the magic. :(
