When I saw Talonflame I tought it was the horrible pokémon I've ever seen, but you pixel it so awosome and now I'm loving it. You choose the perfect colors to represent them. Have you seen Vivillon preevos and Shishiko? Shishiko is my favorite form this gen at the moment *o*
shishiko has a very unimaginative Pokemon design. It just represents a Lion with a Iro. Nintendo didnt even tried on this one. The most original Pokemon concept design ive seen in Gen 6 by now is probably Skrelp. Pokemon doesnt need to be cute or beuatiful to be original, and skrelp is by far the most original pokemon of all time. Sure, we already have an horsea pokemon but now we have one with a more creative design
Skrelp pretends to be a seaweed, and those animals actually excist called: Leafy Seadragon [link]
An interesting looking animal which fits perfectly for a pokemon. Applaus Nintendo. The rest of the pokemon arent that bad, and Talonflame, how you said "The worst Pokemon" has a far more original design than Fennekin. I was shocked when i saw the fire pokemon the first time. Its head looks disgusting, not cute and the proportions are to weird, they added some extra fluff and pointless details. They couldve done much more with the Fire Fox Idea.
But you know, Nintendo knows how to make the Pokemon popular and beloved, Canines and Felines! Everybody loves them! And this effect let people like those new pokemon. Didnt you ever noticed that the most popular pokemon are canined? Lucario, Shinx, Arcanine, houndoom etc.
Yeees, most popular pokémon are canines or foxes, (you forgot eevee) but that's not my case. Usually I prefer pokémon like breelom or archen but I like shishiko because it's based on a shishi not for beein a canine, so maybe shishiko design is unimaginative but I think the evolution will look better.
sorry for shishiko. i googled the name and know what you mean. Yes his evolution could be far more original because we dont have a pokemon like that. i prefer ugly pokemon and reptile/dragon/salamander and frog pokeomn
WHY IS TALONFLAME'S NAME DUMB. ._. srsly gaiz? I can only imagine the meeting Nintendo of America was having when they named the fire/flying bird since Moltres, Talonflame... BUT, other than that, these are beautiful retro sprites as always. ; v ;
