    Yup, Braixen. It's not Braixen's bipedal design itself that bugs me, but:
    - The excessively long ear fluff (Fennekin's short ear fluff is cute and Delphox's long ear flares actually don't feel out of place)
    - The very feminine vibe (the dainty arms/legs and thick leg skirts); Fennekin is fittingly androgynous, and Delphox similarly
    - The odd stick-up-the-tail (though it has a redeeming quality as an excellent animation for Ember)

    Also, I always found Pelipper to be a disappointment.

    I agree, while the ear fluff on the Fennekin family doesn't bother me, I do agree with the very feminine vibe Braixen has, which combined with the stick in the tail gives off a very awkward metaphor for how the fandom often portrays Braixen. It's worth noting that the Fennekin family is 87.5% male, which puts it in the same category as Gardevoir, Lopunny, and Mienshao in the fact that it can be either male or female.

    I don't see anything as overtly feminine about Gardevoir or Mienshao's designs.

    The two I can think of right now would be Tepig's evolutions and Purugly. I like Tepig, but when I saw his evolutions, that was a huge turn off for me. I would've liked to see something that was more unique. It was to me like "Hey here's a adorable little pig, when it evolves you get another fire-fighting type!" And to me, Pignite and Emboar are ugly to me, in my opinion, a starter evolution should either have elegance, coolness, or beauty. And those two don't really have either.

    Purugly, I feel like Glameow could have gotten a better evolution. It went from a beautiful, sleek cat to something that looks like it abuses it's partner (In that case poor Crogunk in Gates to Infinity). The sudden change in body weight is a bit strange, in fact it's one of the few changes evolution wise. There really isn't much change on the Pokemon itself.
    Cherrim is underrated.

    Samurott for me. I mean, he's cool and all, but after the shell-ninja teen that is dewott, I was expecting something more... Ottery. And also exceggutor. Since when did Pokemon get WORSE when they evolve? And also, can I say, non shiny mega gardevoir. Normally, she's graceful and beautiful. After mega evolution, she's just fat. Shiny'a cool, though. Living the evil ballerina.

    Actually Exeggutor starts to make sense once you realize where it came from:
    Jinmenju - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Game: "Would you like to give a nickname to the newly hatched [Pokémon]?"
    Trevor: "You want me to nickname someone I just met?! You shouldn't put people on the spot like this!"

    Diggersby. I mean, seriously, you go from an adorable little bunny to a butt-ugly, rabbit-themed parody of the fat construction worker stereotype. I was expecting something along the lines of this fanart I found.



    Also, as I just found out today (Saturday, April 5), its anime debut features it being used by a criminal. NOT COOL.

    I was born to be a winner... but I'll settle for being an ordinary Trainer.

    another unoriginal detail many might have missed: I was checking the weights of all Pokemon to check how moves like heat crash and grass knot are affected, and discovered a strange anomoly; Muk is the SAME weight as Grimer.

    Diggersby is the biggest one for me. I get what they were going for, but it just didn't work IMO.

    I was pretty disappointed with Servine the first time I played White. Typically I always pick the grass-starter, but once my Snivy evolved, I just couldn't bring myself to use him anymore, and ended up restarting the game with Oshawott.

    also, this wasn't the first time they made that blunder, we all know Lopunny. Like Bunnelby, Buneary is pretty cute, then it evolves into a Playboy Bunny, in a game where the Daycare guy acts like he have no Idea where Eggs come from because the Censors don't want sex in the game. When compared to other Sexy Fan Art Fodder like Gardevoir, I would say Lopunny is much worst just because it seems so Intentional.
    While on Subject, Diggersby tho kinda have a perverted expression on his face, maybe there is some sort of relation with Lopunny
