Pokemon Designs: Known Gen VI Evolutions

Axle the Beast

I’m overdue for weighing in my thoughts on the designs of the many new Pokemon announced for X and Y, and I figured I’d start with the ones that are known to evolve or be pre-evolved forms. I wrote a while back that I couldn’t necessarily say for absolute certain if the Gen VI starter Pokemon had good designs or not until I’d seen what they evolve into. After all, many Pokemon designs make more sense in the context of their before and after; while non-evolving Pokemon typically have very complete designs, often ones that evolve are much simpler and will evolve into more complex, interesting, and often fierce-looking creatures, so it’s difficult to judge a design all on its own when it’s meant to be complemented by other, related designs.

I’ll review the Gen VI Pokemon that lack confirmed evolutions next week — and that will be a lot more awkward and filled with more complaints, so brace yourself! — but for now I’m going to focus on the ones for which we’ve been given that all-important context!

Why the Designs of Generation 1 Were Superior

Axle the Beast

This is the first article to be published on Pokemon Dungeon, and what I’d like to talk about is the actual creature designs from the various Pokemon generations. As I’m sure you can glean from the title, I believe that Generation 1 (or Gen 1) is the best of all of them. Now surely if you’ve been on Pokemon sites or been in Pokemon discussions enough you’ll hear people praise the original 151 Pokemon the most, with opinions on the later generations being far more split.

This article isn’t strictly intended to convince people who feel differently, but also to lay out some objective reasoning as to why Gen 1 is the favorite, for the benefit of those who don’t understand that. Ideally, this article will be just as beneficial to those that prefer Gen 1 as to those who dislike it in explaining why it is the favorite.

I don’t think it’s something that can be explained away as nostalgia. It’s not a case of people simply liking the old generation because it’s the old generation and disliking what was added to it. The problem lies in specific design concepts that are pretty strictly applied to all of the Gen 1 Pokemon, and these concepts are gone from the later generations.

Featured Fanart: Spiritomb

Xinnamin

Spiritomb” by DeviantART artist Chewy-Pokemon

What catches my attention most about this piece is the fantastic expression on Spiritomb’s face, which is one part ethereal, one part maniacal, and entirely perfectly amazing. It gives off a very “crazy Joker” vibe that I find so appropriate for this pokemon. The rest of the piece is just as beautiful too of course, everything from the composition of the purple gas to the bleeding of the Odd Keystone, it all flows together wonderfully. Read more…

Featured Fanart: Four Seasons

Xinnamin

Four Seasons” by DeviantART artist rajewel

The artist describes the piece to have a “magical feel”, and it does. There is something magical about the changing of the seasons that Sawsbuck really personifies. From the warm soft fur of winter to the youthful flowers of spring to the vibrant life of summer to the subdued colors of autumn, the artist really captures the magic of a full year of seasons in one beautifully painted piece, with amazing colors, details, and a flawless transition.

Featured Fanart: Cute Legend

Xinnamin

Cute Legend” by DeviantART artist AndrePaz

This lovely piece here is one of several pokemon pieces in this artist’s gallery, and all of her pieces are quite beautiful. They are all bright and clean and cheerful to look at. It was hard to choose between all of them, but “Cute Legend” stood out to me because the cosmic background and the adorable legendaries floating in the void just look gorgeous together. Read more…
