It's new to us. Now get off my lawn you young whippersnappers! *shakes walking stick before settling back into his rocking chair*
神出鬼没 - shin shutsu ki botsu
what i dont get is why people insist on saying the original poke mon are unique we have a pokeball and a upside down poke ball
then theres the rhydon family minus rhyperior and the nidos
both completely original neither unique the nidos get off for bing different genders in a genderless time but rhyhorn and rhydon are just rock/grond versions of the 2nd and 3d stage nidos
then in the 3rd gen came aggron and his family which by the way is a badass
all based on a rhyno and dino as you can see
I'd like to believe that Rhypheior's existance is due to the fact that they wanted to give an awesome ability (Solid Rock) to the Rhydon family... but it already has two abilities to choose from (Rock Head and LightingRod).
Rather then rework the entire ability system, (since they've "perfected" the game's coding in the 3rd gen already) They just decided to slap an evolution onto Rhydon.
Anyway, it wasn't like Rhydon was a top-tier monster anyway. That crippling weakness to Grass and Water practically undermined it's ability to tank. It also goes with the "tradition" of giving popular monsters a new member to work with.
But yeah, the article could be sumed up to "Pokémon fans are whiny bleeders that are never happy". Also said arguement is old hat and we really should move on.
I'd also like to add that Generetion II wasn't so hot with it's new additions to families either... Who the hell uses Politoed, Slowking and Bellossom over Poliwrath, Slowbro and Vileplume?

I might be the lone wolf here. Ah well :/ I really like the article. And guys, the author was merely stating observations and popular quotes. I love all pokemon. And as he said, new pokemon and new generations mean the pokemon world grows larger. Very well done.
...is this article just talking about what we can all plainly see? I don't really see the opinion of the author in this article, just pointing out that fans disagree. It seems like something that could inform a non-fan of the state of the Pokemon fandom, as if they cared, however anyone that's been here long enough already knows this. As much as I disagreed wholeheartedly with YeOldJacob's article, at least he presented an opinion rather than telling us what we can all see.
It also irks me to see the main page news feed cluttered with editiorials that I don't want to read, but I know nobody else cares about that.
i thaought it was alright i think were suppose to look at past gens inorder to appreciate the new ones
dude above me you better not be talking about the origin of species lol i like that shit
