That Face by QuadForceFive That Face by QuadForceFive
This pretty much sums up my reaction to Gen 5 in general. Initial distaste which inevitably gave way to UNDYING AFFECTION. I don't know what kind of voodoo rituals go into the creation of new Pokemon, but they must be some potent shit.

I would defend Gen. 5 and 6 no matter what, I swear to Arceus...

Anyway. How could anyone NOT love Tympole? Its design is genius... So hilariously musical. I love how it quickly became a meme, at least in pixiv.

This comic is just too perfect.

I agree, I love the newer Generations of Pokemon even more than the old. But that's just me. :)

Crustle is pretty awesome. And I'm right there with you on Cofagrigus! But I just... I can't like Scrafty...

his outfit looks alot like Red's. Is this intentional?

No, actually I based his outfit on the gen 2/3 fisherman sprite. Though admittedly he isn't quite so portly as they are.

I quite agree...XD  I hated nearly every Gen V Pokemon to begin with (with a few exceptions) and then grew to love or be okay with most of them.  That doesn't normally happen... Pokemon I dislike at first tend to keep that tag of being disliked. 
It's all the more amazing considering I really did NOT like the storyline of B/W/B2/W2. XD

Guess who fucked up all of the gym leaders/elite 4/and champion's Pokemon?

My fully evolved Tympole who I thought I hated but ended up being my fav over all of my Pokemon.

Exactly. Ground/Water type, and throw in a couple of ice moves, almost everyone will bow to it.

That was my reaction to Tympole as well. "It looks like someone ripped off a kid's head and stuck a tail on it...how ugly...I'll name you Noggin." *Noggin proceeds with me all the way to the Elite 4*

Trubbish and I were much the same way, but that looks of total derp on its face won me over. I love him so much.

This happens every time a new pokemon game comes out.

"I don't know about all these new pokemans. They seem pretty...new. I don't know if I like it. But oh, look at those little paws. I'll just catch one."

But you don't just catch one.

You catch /them all/.

I have no idea why so many people hate 5th gen Pokemon. A lot of them, like Galvantula, Whimsicott, Ferrothorn, Rufflet, the whole Litwick's line, Dwebble, Cofagrigus, Dewott and Samurott, Zweilous (it's Doduo WITH DRAGONS!) - became instant favorites for me.

And they hate Garbodor because "The first generation was awesome, now it's sh*t". Muks all over the world think you're high, people, and so do I.

I have my problems with a few of the 5th gen designs, but then, I could say that about any generation. I can definitely second your sentiments on Cofagrigus, though. What a badass. Other 5th gen favorites of mine include Bisharp, Reuniclus, Krookodile and Escavalier.

Oh, and much love to Muk. Classic Pokemon.
