I have to agree with Sarah. I think pokemon design has gotten worse and worse. When I first saw pictures of the gen 5 pokemon I thought they were a cheap knock off of the first gen pokemon. I mean a tadpole with a big face, an ice cream cone and a candle ...
Gen 1 and 2 really were the best for pokemon design because they were so simple and other than a few pokemon like voltorb and machamp you could almost picture these things in the wild.
