Re: Are we just getting Older or is Pokemon getting worse?
I haven't posted for a while, but I have been lurking.
Props to the OP for making me chuckle and feel ancient.
Are we just getting older?
The answer is, no.
Aesthetics (visual appeal/how pleasing something is to look at) is based on personal opinion.
You may hate Garbodor and love Tauros, but someone else may be the opposite.
The counter to "Wtf? A rubbish bag that's been ravaged by cats? Really..." would be "A bull with an extra tail. How scintilating </sarcasm>"
Are they running out of ideas?
It's possible, but I highly doubt it.
I could sit here and churn out idea after idea for an Ice Pokémon that isn't an ice cream.
Or visit Deviant Art for a whole universe of other people's ideas.
But someone designed this one and a lot of people liked it/thought it was cute and so it was added.
Graveller is a spherical rock with limbs... I don't see how a block of ice with a snow covered face is any different.
What do you think?
I think that until they start incorporating existing things into their midst (like the old Yoshi rumour), we have nothing to worry about.
People will always like/dislike different things to the next.
