    I would say they generally strike a nice balance between stylistic and practical...

    ...or as practical as people can look when they don't have sclerae or have hair so big a tiny dragon can live in it.

    I actually do kinda appreciate the simplicity of some the character designs in pokemon. Some characters in anime, look like the design artist just sat down to draw them, over the course of weeks, without stopping once, eventually succumbing to terminal dehydration.

    well most Characters of the day are very very unique in their own way. some awesome such as flint and Drayden were well desighned while some such as buck are a combonation of a Prius vs Pickup and a bit of anvils to the head. when i first saw elesa for bw i had to convince myself that this was a kids cartoon. elsea's suits in when dawn reappeared proved my point greatrly. Roxie and her fans burnt my eyes like staring at a welding arc without a shield. every time i heard Roo in the episode i alwassy kept thinking she was ripper roo from Crash bandicoot but her oiut fit.o.o. skyla was probilpy the biggest faiure since the Prius in the fashion dept. however i think ever since gen4 and beyond the characters design have been fail after fail. but thats just me...

    They're alright. I think they should change Iris' hair to her BW2 style though. She would look amazing (:. The eyes kinda creeped me out at the beginning but they're okay now! I got used to them... well except Delia's. I don't know why. I agree with other posters, Misty's design was my favorite. And I really liked her Advanced generation outfit.


    I hear it's never too late if you really stick to the program!

    Any inconviences involving the clothes, blame Sugimori, not the animators :)

    And they were going fine for designs until Best Wishes. Cilan and Iris do look unrealistic.
    Why are you looking here? There is nothing here.

    many characters have Cilan's eyes (Luke, Stephan, the guy in the deino ep, Juniper assistant I think....), and I'm sure I have seen Dawn between the crazy fangirls in Striatlon XD

    The overwhelming majority of the character designs you guys are talking about were done by Game Freak / Sugimori. The people behind the TV series shouldn't get the blame for Iris' hair or Dent's eyes, y'know.

    How about Musashi and Kojirou? I kind of like how their red and blue hair compliments each other and how Musashi's odd hair shape gives her such a defining silhouette.

    Harley's another character with a great design. I mean, he's a grown man dressed up like a cactus. What isn't there to love about that?

    Some of the designs may be kind of... wacky, but this is just something I generally don't think about; I just get used to the designs and accept them. So I just voted the first option, anyway.

    Some designs can be incredibly bland. Just look at Kenny, he basically looks the same as any random filler character on the show. Even designs like Georgia's aren't THAT great, she could also pass for a COTD if she wasn't a rival.

    I like the character's designs. Also, I don't see the point of picking on the characters that are based off of the Sugimori art...:/ They really don't have much control over how they can look. xD

    But I don't like many of the COTD's..they just look so....bland. ^^; I almost wouldn't mind if they made the COTD's look like the game trainer sprites...

    As for myself, I don't mind them. I just wish the eye and hair designs were more detailed, similar to other anime.

    unique
    I mean, we can't find this kind of design in other anime.

    Iris 's hair, Dent 's eyes (huh >.>) , Harley the cactus, Musashi's weird pink hair, Takeshi's closed eyes, Tarsan (ep34), Kasumi's suspenders (<3), Kenta's lock (weird Oo) ...

    There have been some very unique looking characters and some more normal looking ones. I find the overall design of the Pokemon characters to be alright.

    I just wish the characters were a little taller...

    They're alright in my opinion. I don't particularly tend to rate designs high or low in general as the design isn't as important as the personality and story in my opinion.

    Er, why? Homika's band is a super punk band... they looked exactly like the sort of fans a band like that would have (and yes, I'm stereotyping).
    Hidden Mew and martianmister like this.
