    Tepig came to mind. When the starters for Gen V were first shown I was like “I’m so getting the pig!”. When the evolutions were leaked, I changed my mind.

    Pikachu obviously. Many prefer it over Raichu by way of being the mascot.

    Chespin and Mareanie are two that come to mind. I just like them more than their evolutions.

    Mime Jr. is at least somewhat cute. Mr. Mime is just creepy.

    Also Farfetch'd > the scrapped gen 2 evo.

    Honedge over Doublade but not Aegislash.

    Frogadier over Greninja due to the tongue ruining the design for me. If it was bubbles I'd love Greninja.

    Zigzagoon, Braixen, Cubchoo, Pumpkaboo, Piloswine, Rhydon, and Torchic are some of the most notable ones for me.

    Linoone and Combusken

    Scyther for sure, it's my favorite bug and I never evolve it.

    Abra is adorable; I'd never use just an Abra, but it'd definitely be my shoulder-mon if I had one!

    Shroomish is a great Grass-type with some handy status moves like Poison Powder and Leech Seed, and some pretty solid damaging moves like Headbutt and Mega Drain.

    Breloom is a mediocre Fighting-type that learns almost no decent moves until it's past level 30, so you need to keep going with the same strategies you used for Shroomish until then.

    It's hard to give an unbiased answer thanks to the good old Eviolite, but I prefer Chansey over Blissey

    I guess Pikachu is technically a middle stage evolution, and I like Pikachu's design much more than Raichu's (especially the Alolan form)

    I prefer snorunt over both of its evolved forms. It's just so much cuter, even if it's not as good in battle. It applies to the anime too, as I still wish to this day that they'd never evolved Ash's snorunt.

    I think Inkay's the bee's knees, but Malamar scares the hell out of me. Same kind of applies to Mismagius.

    Spritzee is probably the first thing that comes to my mind. It was a really cute little bird Pokémon, but evolved into Aromatisse. While I don't find Aromatisse unbearable in terms of design, compared to Spritzee, it just seems like a straight downgrade.

    I like Koffing over Weezing. I know it sounds really picky and even kind of dumb since Weezing is basically two Koffing fused together, but I just find Koffing cuter.
