Very disappointed in this Gen's dex if that's all we're getting. Most of the mons are so generic and unimaginative while others are way too weird (island guardians, UBs). Alolan forms are a HUGE disappointment as well. If that was supposed to be Gen I pandering, it failed miserably, as most of these new forms look worse than their original forms. WTF is with the geodude, meowth and diglett lines?! They're ugly as hell!
From the leaked mons, the very few I do like are Wimpod's evo (one of the best pokemon this gen, IMO) and those weird marine pokemon. The rest are ranging from meh to ugh.
No mythical legendaries is very odd as is what Marshadow looks like. I'm pretty sure its real form is left for the inevitable third version or whatever they're planning to make to end Gen VII with.
So many monkeys, birds and terribly designed pokemon like that fish with teeth. Grass Pokemon that look like ripoffs of Lilligant and other grass type pokemon from previous Gens. Like, are they for real? I swear I've seen countless fakemon on deviantart that looke miles, miles better than the official pokemon of this Gen.
I'm indifferent to most of the shiny forms too, which doesn't usually happen.
The number of the new Pokemon is low as expected but since most of the alolan forms are this hideous, they should have ditched them and made some new pokemon that actually look decent.
I dunno, guys. When I first saw the whole Gen VI dex, I didn't really like most of the designs but I didn't really dislike them either. This is not the case here, unfortunately. I am starting to think they aren't as much running out of ideas as they are getting incredibly lazy with making new designs, because who the heck cares, people will eat this stuff anyway and the games will bring in tons of money.
Still hoping the region and the game as a whole is a lot better than Kalos. Will try the demo once I get back home from work. I will make a playthrough video and upload it on my channel, if anyone's interested.
