Luvdisc and Mamanbo.
This whole idea seems pretty idiotic. By this reasoning, Gastly was meant to evolve into Voltorb (similar eyes and round shape), Dewgong was supposed to evolve into Dragonite (both have single horns and round heads), and Flareon was supposed to evolve into Arcanine (both red and very furry). See? Anyone can do this.

Butterfree's names were switched around somehow.
The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.
Cloyster is a ghastly.
Finding such similarities is not hard at all.
Gastly as Venonat/Butterfree. And, as an added note, what proof - and by proof, I mean objective fact, going beyond "OMG VENONAT SO TOTALLY LOOKS LIKE BUTTERFREE LOL XD" - do you have that Game Freak even considered making Venonat evolve into Butterfree.
and how do you think voltorb and ghastly have the same eyes? ghastlys are half circles and voltorb's are triangles.....
I think Pearl, Diamon, and Platinum Versions suck. Sorry
Metapod and Venomoth are not. That's supposed to be part of your argument, remember? That Venomoth was originally the final Stage of the Caterpie Line?
As Ranger Jack Walker pointed out, it could also be said that Gastly was supposed to be a relative of the Shellder family: They all consist of Black spheres inside something purple; Shellder and Gastly both enjoy sticking out their tongues; Gastly and Cloyster have similar eyes; Gastly and Cloyster both appear to be leering at you. That's pretty much the same amount of "proof" you provided for Venonat/Butterfree.their eyes are the same, their noses are the same and have the same teeth things attatched to them, their antennas are the same, and in the same place....their hands are the exact same shape and are in the same place
...When exactly did I try to prove that Game Freak never considered Venonat/Butterfree with Voltorb/Gastly? Furthermore, I never claimed that I could prove GF DIDN'T consider Venonat/Butterfree, I merely asked you if you could prove that they did, which you subsequently failed to do. If you cannot objectively prove that they did consider Venonat/Butterfree, then it cannot be accepted as fact. Saying "You can't prove they didn't consider it" is not proof of Venonat/Butterfree's validity.....and what proof besided OMG LOL VOLTORB AND GHASTLY ARE ROUND AND EXPLODE LOLOLOL XD do you have that Gamefreak DIDN'T consider it?
They're both somewhat triangular and frowned. And, keep in mind, this resemblance exists outside of the rudimentary Red/Blue sprites, unlike your "Caterpie, Metapod and Venomoth are all Ys" assertion.and how do you think voltorb and ghastly have the same eyes? ghastlys are half circles and voltorb's are triangles.....
What Arc Blader is saying highlights the problem with this fandom. Rather than taking concrete evidence to support their arguments, all people do are make casual observations which can be made about many Pokemon. There have been many 'relations' brought up that have can easily be shot down such as Cubone/Kangaskhan or Trapinch/Charizard (both of which had their possible origins thoroughly examined). Yet, with the lack of any concrete arguments apart from "they look alike", fans fall back to the "you can't prove they didn't intend it to be so, therefore I am right" argument, when that very same argument can be reflected right back at them.
Let's look at this argument already. We've shown that "similar features" have applied through many unrelated Pokemon, yet Pokemon, both based off of insects having novel similarities is suddenly supposed to make them related? That's not grasping at straws?
Then, when the only piece of connecting evidence between Caterpie, Metapod and Venomoth had been refuted, the argument turns to "let's ignore that and look at this instead" when the entire premise of your argument was that all three had this V/Y shaped antenna.
Quite ironic when you used the same vague "connect the dots" argument to prove your point.and how do you think voltorb and ghastly have the same eyes? ghastlys are half circles and voltorb's are triangles.....
Yes, there are casual similarities between them, there are casual similarities between a lot of Pokemon.
Oh look, here's another Pokemon with Venonat-like eyes. Clearly the same eye type, the only difference is the shape to make Beedrill look more fierce.
Yeah, and what's amazing is that they were made a decade apart, clearly have similarities, yet they didn't make it an evolution to Luvdisc despite the fact that they could have easily done it.yeah....cuz those were in the same game, they werent made a decade apart or anything
Yet, when two Pokemon within the same generation look moderately alike, they must have originally been intended to be related. But if they're from different generations,clearly not right?
Now, since we're playing "connect the dots", why not try connect Venomoth and Venonat?
Venomoth has the same pincer-like mouth that Venonat has, and in fact, its quite prominent on it, not like on Butterfree. Both of them are also purple.
