Unpopular Pokemon opinions V2 (READ FIRST POST)

Based on the previous responses this is apparently unpopular but I love the Galarian Fossils (my favourite is Arctozolt). That being said I get why some do not. I like pokemon that are a bit disturbing and they were really fun in-game so they appeal to me at least.
Don't worry everybody is allowed to like what they like.

Though I gotta say I don't find them "disturbing", to me it's a lot worse than "disturbing": I find them silly. As in "too silly to take serious in any way" That's why I don't like them.

I’m fine with the Galar fossils. My favorite is Arctozolt with Arctovish and Dracovish being close behind. I like Dracozolt too but it is my least favorite only because of how extremely misappropriated its upper half is. It just looks a bit awkward where the others were a bit much with details too but they were put together incorrectly so it makes sense. And Arctozolt and Arctovish look the most like an actual animal.

I love the Galarian Fossils as well. Though I have a feeling they will be a one time thing and the next generation will have more traditional fossil Pokemon
I am thinking the same as they have many unique characteristics to them that don’t really need to be repeated such as being unable to be bred and all being unrelated to each other in the sense none of them will evolve into another one of them.

Unpopular but I was fine with the fossils being half-rock type. It's an interesting theme.

I just wish we had one more duo based on actual dinosaurs. Not counting the abominations, we only have Tyrantrum, Amaura, Rampardos and Bastiodon.

I really want an actual triceratops and a velociraptor :(

Isn’t Aerodactyl a dinosaur?

Unpopular opinion: I prefer fossils to be based on very early, Pre-Triassic animals and Pokemon based on dinosaur to be ordinary, non-fossil species, such as Tropius.

Aerodactyl is a Pterosaur, a flying reptile. They are related to dinosaurs, but are not dinosaurs.

Yes, that is.

Even though popular culture has pterosaurs be classfied as dinosaurs, they aren't really.

Maybe I'm just too hyper-focused on the story implications rather than just letting a Pokemon be a Pokemon, but my problem is that their entire basis is being incorrect abominations. It bugs me in a weird way that moving forward they'll just continue to be wrong (and unless they entirely change the method of getting them, scientists in future games will keep making the same mistake Cara Liss made), and that we'll never see the 'actual' Galar fossil Pokemon.

I prefer fossil Ookemn that evolve and not ugly ones like we have this gen
My favorite Fossil Pokemon is Ptera (Aerodactyl), which became my favorite after I watched the Kanto Fossil Pokemon episode from the Kanto saga. That said, while I don't like the newer Galar Fossils, I like the concept of Pokemon assembled from ill-matched parts. They're like chimeras.

I like picking Chikorita in Gen 2. Having a supportive Starter Pokemon is pretty unique for a regular playthrough, and a bit more interesting than just powering through. Chikorita's various disadvantages in Gyms also make it more important to have good team members who can pick up the slack offensively. Also Meganium is adorable.

I like Chikorita, Bayleef and Meganium's designs but I wish they were double typed just to give them a wider movepool especially in GSC.

Though it blows Chikorita only gets Leech Seed as an Egg Move so all it can do against Team Rocket’s army of (mostly) Poison-types is setting up screens. It doesn’t help Johto’s selection Pokemon are not too impressive (R.I.P most stone evolutions essentially being ”post-game” Pokemon).

Yeah Leech seed by level up would make sense. I've always thought it should have got dig like the other Johto starters. It wouldn't be overpowered and considering it can get Earthquake when fully evolves it seems logical. A useful move to get through the early stages.

Reflect is really strong in early game, Chikorita is nowhere near as weak as people just looking at type matchups at gyms believe. Almost everything in early game is physical, and Chikorita helps your entire team wall things and stall things out, also getting Poisonpowder early. Chikorita is the best starter in dealing with Whitney, while Bugsy and Falkner are easy to beat anyway and Reflect also helps against them.
