Do you like them?
The starters, the legendary?

For now, I'd say average, since we got an awesome fire starter, a great little frog and an horrible grass starter. (My opinion)
I saw the legendary on the first page and I can say I like "the one who look like Stantler".

So what about you?

There are only five of them. It's hard to tell from that small sampling, but at least the cute, bipedal starter is the grass type now (Oshawott and Piplup looked really similar).

I know... it looks like they modified their designs since Gen 4...
I don't know... manga? (Instead of realistic-looking Pokemon.)
You can notice huge manga eyes on Pokemon on Gen 4 to 6

They are just fine. Each generation has Pokemon I think look fine and Pokemon that....not so much. @Mektar Oshawott and Piplup don't look very similar. One's a penguin, the other's an otter.

I think they`re really cool. They seem to have been (yes I`m this lame) created with a sense of sophistication. The legendary`s seem very noble. Like they stand for something important.

Give me a high five, Lawence! Yveltal FTW!
From what I've seen, the new Pokemon are really good. Definitely better than Gen V's. When I first saw Reshiram and the starters, I was like... meh. But these ones look nice.

From the art that CoroCoro leaked I have decided that I like Yveltal more than Xerneas.

Yes, I quite like them!

Out of the three starters, Fennekin is my favorite, followed by Froakie and then Chespin. I guess I don't like Chespin as much because of the thing on its head; it feels more like an accessory than something that's naturally part of its physiology. Fennekin looks the most natural and Pokemonish to me, and I can't avoid thinking about Digimon when looking at Froakie (not that it's bad, though, it's just not "home").

As for the two legendaries, Xerneas is definetly my favorite, although I do quite like Yveltal as well. For a while I debated over the fact which one appealed to me the most, but finally decided for Xerneas, for being a huge fan of deer and regal things (might explain why I'm such a big fan of the Musketeer Trio). If this was a few years ago, I would've probably voted Yveltal because DRAGONS (and badass ones for that matter).

I really like the new starters, especially Fennekin. Xerneas is by far my favourite out of the two legendaryies, so I'll get pokemon X.

I hate these new Pokémon. Game Freak have run out of ideas and are just giving us this BS :evil: . They might even be worse than that damn ice-cream excuse for a Pokémon :frustrated: . In fact, they should have given up after Gen1 :twisted:

That's a lie, I hate Yveltal.

yay another purist! :D
The pokemon's design became crappy after 3rd Gen... (My opinion)

Ps. Have you been hacked? To suddenly change opinions on the Pokemon... what happened?

Dragoboy: Nostalgia much?

I actually like some of the new pokemon. I completely disagree with the people that say
Quote:
They should have ended with Gen 1.


Why? Some pokemon have bad designs get over it. The whole world doesn't revolve around you likening a pokemon or not. I for one actually like the 'FRESH SNOW' pokemon. (I know that's just a coverup) Its cute. Vannilite isn't that bad. In each Gen you get good pokemon with good design, and you get bad pokemon with bad designs. People cannot say Gen 1 was perfect. WTF was Muk anyway, sludge. Voltorb was an electrical ball. Porygon was basically Cyber stuff. Gen 1 was not perfect.


My actual response after my rant.

It's hard to tell when it comes to just appearance on whether you like certain pokemon or not. Chespin personally is my favourite so far. But then again. Snivy was my favourite last time. Now I hate him. So you don't really know. I do like all of the pokemon so far. But I don't really like Fenniken anywhere near as much. I think he will turn into the next Charmander where he will be overused way too much. Then again, I love CHARMANDER, but I've never used him. Chespin looks cute, and will get great moves. Froakie looks Eh, with great stats. Fenniken will hopefully be the first Middle of the choice starters.

Now to Yveltal, looks intimidating. Probably is intimidating. But does he have the moves, type and stats to back it up. That's a lot to put on one pokemon.
Xerneas. Where to start with him. Majestic. Looks grass type. Maybe Psychic type as well. May be the next Virizion. He looks a lot like him. Not much to say on the Legendaries, yet.

Actually... most of them, more than 75%, have bad designs since 4th Gen...
I was actually excited when I first heard about a ghost/fire pokemon...
But then: Urgh!!!
It was just horrible, one of the worst fire type so far.

I don't know what happened to the Pokemon, but they have something... that completly ruin them.
Maybe too much little details, or exaggerated little details... or simply horrible design and ideas.

"Generation 1 had bad Pokemon too, even though the main way I can qualify this statement is to talk about how some of the Kanto Pokemon designs are basic" in response to people hating on new Pokemon is about as overdone and cliche as "I can't believe they made garbage bag Pokemon, that's so stupid and they're running out of ideas," IMO.

Anyway, Chespin and Fennekin: yes. Froakie, Yveltal and Xerveas: meh.

Hey can we not be no life middle schoolers and complain about how new pokemon's designs suck? Also, don't refer to Gen IV as new. DP came out in 2006 in Japan and Gen IV pokemon started being revealed 2 years before that. Thank you. Let's keep our contributions intelligent and steer away from pointless banter we see on the internet too often. Not trying to sound rude but those types of comments have gotten old and they're not true. The sooner people accept this, the better: Pokemon is not declining; each generation has had its good and bad points. You're allowed to have your favorite region or generation but you can do that without making such annoying comments.

Chandelure? You mean an interesting pokemon with interesting type combo and movepool and good stats? Yeah it's completely dissapointing unlike Spearow or Ledyba...

Yep, disappointed.
For a Fire/Ghost, I expected something awesome.
But he looks weird...

Oh wow a chandelier. It's going to roast us alive. When I heard about a fire and ghost. I expected something more intimidating then a lamp. Spearow is an eagle. Have you ever had an eagle pecking at your eyes. Have you had your finger over a chandelier. Which is more painful? I suppose Ledyba is a ladybug. But it has good stats too.

That's a lie, I hate Yveltal.

^What's this guy's problem? There are loads of new and creative designs in the later gens, and Gen1 had its fair share of "bad" Pokémon. And what's wrong with Vanillish? So what, it's ice-cream get over it.
And Yveltal is awesome.

*bows* thank you, thank you all! I would like to thank my friends, my family...

And now my actual reactions to the new Pokémon:
Chespin: pretty cool... thing. I think its meant to be a hedgehog.
Fennekin: yay! A non-fighting type fire starter (probably/hopefully), although I would still use it if it was a fighting type.
Froakie: Frog Pokémon in a French region. Are Froakie legs the new Slowpoke tails?
Xerneas: Majestic deer. Meh, looks cool, but doesn't really appeal to me.
Yveltal: I have the avatar and sig for a reason.

I see what you did there.
Personally, I have much higher hopes than I did for Gen V pokemon.
And if I see one non-animal based pokemon, I will blame and scapegoat twist.
