Suddenly I realize who puppy lizard reminds me of
Naming mine Edd, no matter what.
THE PAGES! THEY DO NOT LOAD FAST ENOUGH!
Anyway, am I the only one who thinks the Karos art style looks like a fan-made region (not that that's a bad thing)?
I may aswell post what I want to happen with the new guys atm:
Electric lizard -> Electric/Steel frilled lizard also based on a parabolic antenna.
Robin -> hoopoe -> roadrunner (maybe) Probably all Normal/Flying since the region bird never seems to deviate from that, sadly.
Panda -> Overweight mobster panda (Yancham looks like it's wearing a black shirt with grey trousers and braces -- like a stereotypical mobster so I expect them to add to that). It seriously looks and seems like a Dark-type though, so maybe it will be Fighting/Dark later.
I don't care about the goat but I could see it with a pre-evo, or just being a standalone. Probably standalone though.
I wonder somewhat why the lizard is Electric/Normal type in particular. Usually, Normal dual-types tend to seem a bit more Normal-type than the lizard appears to me, and I don't see many advantages in the lizard becoming such a type. The Pokémon appears a bit more geared toward special attacks, so Normal-type STAB wouldn't usually be too useful. If it's a physical attacker, it could make more sense though.
A pretty cool-looking new batch of Pokemon.
Yanchamu is easily my favorite, I simply love the design already and its demeanor. I like Pokemon with traces of this thing known as a personality and with an interesting species name like Naughty it's surely gonna be something kewl. I like badass adorable Pokemon so I'm really happy to see this little guy and can't wait to make some fanart of it. I like how it has a badass motif with that leaf hanging from its mouth.
Yayakoma, not really impressive at first but has grown on me, mostly due to seeing a bunch of fanart of it on Tumblr. The idea of it using Flame Charge is cool and imaging a flaming, flying fireball racing through the air could be awesome. Known for its good/sweet voice is a tad generic but I'll take it.
Erikiteru is pretty nice, I'm usually a huge fan of Electric-type Pokemon but I don't feel much immensely for the little guy. The idea of solar-induced electricity is a nice break from the norm though, I could see it becoming an Electric/Grass-type. Pretty cute and weird, hope it isn't the Emolga/Pachirisu of Gen 6. Probably isn't since there are no electricity sacs on its face.
Gogoat, no strong opinion yet.
I didn't automatically hate any of them, so that's good.
I like the robin best, then the goat, then the panda. I'm not too keen on the lizard (?) other than its typing. Electric/Normal is something I never imagined we'd see.

Seriously. I love all the new Pokemon (especially Xerneas, Chespin, the panda, the bird, and the goat) but sometimes I wish that there was some sort of yearly contest for a new Pokemon. I'm personally rooting for Nemosafid and Marlosafid. Scroll to the end of Random Lines Challenge Completed and Destroyed - Cheezburger to see what I mean. There's even a petition for it at goo.gl/xuOZR !!!!!!
I'm gonna go and say it right now but watch as Yancham (the Panda) gains Dark as a Secondary Type. His look and the fact that he is classified as the Naughty Pokémon assures this for me. As for his ability I'm gonna say Sap Sipper I don't know why but I just have a feeling. Also watch as that leaf somehow turns into a bamboo fighting stick that or either he'll gain a bamboo fighting stick and still retain the leaf in his mouth. Should I maybe sig this?
Team Eeveelution All The Way!!!
like several others have mentioned, i hope the lizard evolves into a frilled lizard and his necktie ears multiply into a full frill to mach the aforementioned parabola solar satellite. only then might i actually like it. i'd actually love it then.
although if he evolves into a bipedal theropod like reptile with a frill... mimicking the SUPER ERRONEOUS AND MISINFORMATION SPREADING DILOPHOSAURUS FROM JURASSIC PARK I WILL BE LIVID.
i'm a little bummed none of the gen 6 noobs were bugs. i'll keep my fingers crossed for my water/bug though. xD
I'm not really a fan of the new lizard, either, but I could change my mind depending on its evolution (assuming it gets one). And Electric normal is a strange combination. Apparently it turns sunlight into it's electricity? Maybe it has an alternate form that is just normal type, and in sunlight, it gains the electric part? That would be interesting and not to out-there of an idea.
The robin I was kind of meh about, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. The panda is great, and yeah it totally looks like it would be dark type, rather than fighting, and it's new move, Smart Remark, also sounds dark type, like Nasty Plot, etc. The goat I think is pretty cool, and I have a feeling it won't have an evo or pre-evo and is more of a gimmick thing. Like when you get to town you have to go catch one to ride around on, or something. It's more of a game function than designed for use in competitive battle.
banchō [the delinquent meaning, not the government one]/mobster) then yes, a bamboo stick also seems likely to me; GatoRage suggested earlier that its evolutions could use a bamboo stick similar to how mobster's use baseball bats in most media. I think it would work.
