Best Designed Pokémon

  1. BDP: Growlithe-Arcanine

    Note: Arcanine seriously has tons of artwork, both TCG and fanart. Yes, it has 8 Favorite Renditions, and that's after I raised the standards (had I not, it would have perhaps double that number). And, much like Ninetales, there are... one might say... unorthodox depictions of the Legendary Pokémon.

    58. Growlithe

    Form: 8.5. Now that's how you make an ordinary animal interesting. As if the impressive ...

  2. BDP: Mankey-Primeape

    56. Mankey

    Form: 7.5. Mankey's body is truly bizarre. Its head, neck, torso, and abdomen are all fused into one hairy sphere. The thin limbs are typical of tree-dwelling primates, but the cat-like ears just up the oddity. I do like how the hands have evolved into primitive fists for performing Fighting attacks. The feet are rather ugly and atypical of primates, but they look adept for perching on tree limbs. Its face matches ...

  3. BDP: Psyduck-Golduck

    Another edition of Best Designed Pokémon. Some notes: I have tweaked the scores of a few previous Pokémon slightly, new Favorite Rendition artwork has been added for Venusaur, Caterpie, Metapod, Gloom, and Vileplume (all by the artist Petah55), and I have given the grade Variety a new name: Originality. This is to clear up my own confusion of the term. Previously I had been judging this grade by how original a Pokémon looked, not on how original its concept is. Lastly, I'm entertaining the idea ...

  4. BDP: Meowth-Persian

    After a few weeks, here's Meowth and Persian. Persian in particular has a lot of good fanart and card art to choose from.

    52. Meowth

    Form: 5. Big points taken off for the plain, lanky, unconformable body and limbs. The limbs are too thin for its body and its body is just a lump. The tail is the same as Rattata's but the head is iconic. The eyes are large and characteristically feline. The whole ...

  5. BDP: Diglett-Dugtrio

    Look, what follows shouldn't surprise anyone. Diglett and Dugtrio aren't exactly known for their artistic qualities. I will, however, use some je ne sais quoi to divinate some form of artistic worth to these two. Let's begin.

    50. Diglett

    Form: 2. It would have been a 1 if not for the grand mystery that is its lower half. Diglett have legs. That's a fact. The notion that such intrigue ...
