Summer to me has always brought up memories of playing core Pokémon games, though the games themselves were not often released in the Summer (to my memory). A common criticism I’ve seen is that Pokémon after Gen I (and maybe II) are nowhere s good as those before them. While Gen I Pokémon do have a consistency to them, and are well designed, I often wonder if this is truly the case. In a way, I like the weird ways designs have spun out, and how outlandish they can sometimes get.
So, what’s your favorite post Gen-I Pokémon?
(Feel free to post an official image or sourced fanart!)
If you really like designs after Gen-I, why?
