Unpopular Pokemon opinions V2 (READ FIRST POST)

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who actually really likes the Sobble line. It gets so much hate right now, which is a shame because I really like the concept of starting out as a crybaby to becoming really confident and I think it's genius.

    That being said, I feel like it's an unpopular opinion, but I still know a lot of people who picked Sobble. Maybe there's something I'm not seeing...

    I kinda dislike Intelleon because to me it’s clearly a Dark or Ghoest type.It also reminds me too much of Greninja and that probably why it’s pure water

    I’m surprised people even dislike Inteleon. Thought you guys liked the smug ones!

    That being said, it’s the first time since Gen II where none of the starters became a big favorite of mine. And even Johto at least had Feraligatr.

    Intelleon is so far my favorite gen 8 starter. I love reptiles, and it has such a cool design. I especially love it’s signature move animation and that fact that it has water guns for fingers.

    I prefer Cinderace he has slightly worse speed and attacks than Intelleon but I like that he has better defenses and look forward to seeing his hidden ability.

    Yeah, its ability is basically going to make it the best starter by a long shot, even with its somewhat limited movepool.

    Cinderace ability will be even better when it’s holding a expert belt.Also is any idea when the starters ha will be released?

    I like the Water starter because of Misty, and the other Galar starters because they're mammals. I wouldn't adopt a Scorbunny as a pet (unlike real rabbits) though, could easily set your house on fire.

    There's absolutely nothing that "speaks" Ghost or Dark typing about its design tho? There's nothing clear that it should be that at all.
    It looks like a Pokemon James Bond, that's... literally it.

    But he’s a spy that seems to me like a dark or ghost type considering they gotta be sneaky.

    My personal issue isn't with Messon (Sobble) or Jimereon (Drizzile), but solely with their final form which I think looks very odd. Admittedly, I'm probably just upset that it has such a feminine design instead of looking more gender-neutral, which is something that I disliked about Ashirene (Primarina) as well.

    Inteleon is sadly most people's problem with the line (though I've seen a lot of flak for Drizzile as well), which I personally don't understand why. I personally think it's one of the coolest Pokemon of this generation, though I seem to be one of the very few people who thinks so apparently.

    (I want to reply to more than one person, but I'm having trouble with that right now...)

    I'll be honest Intelleon to me isn't particularly feminine. If anything I got Intellon as more Masculine with the whole James bond vibe. I wouldn't have minded if it ended up being more feminine but I think they got it right. Here's my unpopular bit though. I like Sobble and Intelleon but I'm less of a fan of Drizzile. It's ok but to me its the stage I find the most disappointing.

    Drizzile is definitely an odd one to get used to for sure. The things' design is the pure definition of "Awkward Edgy Teen Phase" for a Pokemon starter line yet.

    I agree that it's awkward, although the same applies to most middle stage Pokemon, especially the middle stages of Starter Pokemon from what I've noticed. In fact out of all middle stage Starters, I think I only really like Magmarashi (Quilava).

    My main issue with the Galar middle stages is that they all have colors that are out of place with their (pre)evolutions. Thwackey turns this ugly lime green, Raboot gains black (though admittedly this doesn’t bother me since it still works with its design), & Drizzile gains purple on its fins (?) where Sobble and Intelleon have yellow.

    I dislike all the middle stage evolutions of this generation because I find them kinda ugly except for Thwackey.I mean I get how the middle stage evolutions aren’t suppose to be as cute as the first stage evolutions or a s tough looking as the final stage evolutions but still.
