Most Unoriginal Pokemon?

Recommended Posts

PyreDynasty

 

I've looked at all of these and saw no difference.One.Pyre Dynasty.Don't knock down pokemon if your stupid.Latios and Latias are brother and sister.Two.Pidgy,Starly,and Pidove are fine.What?Are you gonna be knocking down starters cause they're always the same type?Its called pattern.Same type starter,common normal type,and flying type is always in the games.

 

 

 

 

It's not nice to call someone stupid, particularly if you misunderstand their meaning. That was in response to Richieman for calling Kyurem unoriginal because he resembled those two. I actually agree with you. I don't see different but similar animals being in different regions of the world as being unoriginal.

Take the star hat off, put on a little green dress without arms and a tight bonnet, narrow the eyes and remove the mouth and they totally look alike. In other words change everything, and it works.

Speaking of Jynx... she and Hypno copied each other's crys. Mewtwo's and Parasect's cries sound similar too.

 

 

Machops and omanyte sound almost the same, and Charizards and Rhydon, sounds exactly the same.

 

 

There's tons of pairs like that, in fact I read somewhere that there's only around 40 unique cries in first gen and they're all variations of each other.

 

 

 

As for unoriginal, I'd say Kling and Klang. The final evolution is cool but the first two stages are so similar looking that there seems to be no point in having made them. In fact, their sprites are literally copy-pasted onto each others higher stage.

What about Braviary? It is just a amped up Fearow

I guess if Fearow went to the gym, became less aerodynamic, got a haircut, got plastic surgery on its beak, got a completely different colour scheme, ate a lot more protein and put on a mask... They would begin to resemble each other.

Don't forget that Fearow can't learn Sky Drop either.

Or Superpower.

 

 

 

And Braviary can't learn Drill Run.

You're talking to a person who believes that the later generation designs are as good or better than earlier designs.

 

 

 

 

 

Klink and Klang were already mentioned, however. Along with Pidove and Starly.

 

 

 

 

 

Gastly and Cloyster.

 

 

 

Edit: Cryogonal is... I dislike it.

 

 

 

 

 

Edit 2: Poliwrath is just an angry Poliwhirl.

That's the exact reason I like Politoed better. It makes sense for a tadpole Pokemon to evolve into a frog Pokemon and not a buff tadpole.

Diglett and Dugtrio, those dont make sense, what is under them?!

 

I mean are they super long?

 

How can they have eggs?

 

What is it that when they hatch, they already are born into the ground?

Team Plasma was trying to copy Team Rocket. When they saw that a clone (Mewtwo) was created they decided to take it up a notch by making a robot (Genesect).

i thought Voltorb was the most unnecesary Pokemon ever, and don't even get started on Electrode....gah.

 

VoltorbElectrode.jpg

 

What I don't understand about these two pokemon, is that, the pokedex says they are constantly mistaken for pokeballs, yet Voltorb is 1' tall, and Electrode is 4' tall. How do you mistake something that is 4' tall for something the size of a baseball? NINTENDO LOGIC!

People is confusing "unoriginal" with ugly or boring. Many of the Pokemon mentioned are actually decent.

 

-

 

 

 

I would say one the most unoriginal are Rattata and Ratticate, both are basically IRL rats just one was dyed purple and the other is oversized.

 

 

 

Pidove could also pass as an IRL pidgeon, but it's patterns and chibified body helps it. It's actually a really cute Pokemon and some of the best balanced design-wise ones: Stylished but you can still tell which animal is.

 

-

 

 

 

 

 

Then we have Muk who is a bigger Grimmer, Electrode who is a flipped Voltorb, Poliwrath who is a biggest Poliwhirl, Ductrio who is three Digletts pasted together and Magneton who is simply three Magnemites pasted together. Those are the worst of the worst.

 

-

 

 

 

First Generation, because of it's limited team it had the most sad designs of the whole franchise. A lot of them where recycled all over. Just notice how similar the siluettes of Gengar and Clefairy are... And I'm not the only one who noticed, type their names together in Google; And Gengar and Cloyster which have the same freaking face.

Pfft..

 

 

 

As an artist I really have nothing to say about what is called unoriginal. Everyone has their own style or twist on something even if it is a small change but what's been done is an out reach of something of the artist them self.

 

 

 

You can sit there and talk stuff about them but really you just wish you could have made them.

You can't be an artist, specially a video game character designer or concept artist, if you got no sense of good design. People like Daniel Dociu and Ken Sugimori worked hard to reach the place they are right now so this is why the mistakes done in first generation I mentioned above (a.k.a. experimental stage) aren't never repeated or at least they cover them better.

I don't know I've seen some pretty poorly designed games . . .
