Because I'll take possessed demon balloons, zombie insects, deep sea monstrosities and bizarre rarely seen creatures most people have never even heard of
over generic dragons and rodents anyday.
SORRY GUYS. I LIKE MY POCKET MONSTERS
TO LOOK MONSTROUS.
Why yes, this was
inspired by all the wank over the new B&W starters. and every other new pokemon past generation 2 ever
The Pokemon shown are just a random selection from all generations that I think of when I think of weird/WTF Pokemon... and examples I usually see pointed out when people start saying "OMG GAMEFREAK IS RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS" (plus a couple from the first gen, since GF has apparently been 'running out of ideas' for a really long time now
(other personal favorites I would've included if I didn't get lazy: Parasect, Shedinja, Slowbro, Weezing, Mawile, Sableye, Wobbuffet, TOO MANY OTHERS)and on that note, can I just say how much I HATE the whole 'running out of ideas' argument? Because if anything I'm thankful that the later generations have been getting MORE creative and imaginative than just "IT'S A CARTOON RAT BUT IT'S PURPLE". They're getting into some SERIOUSLY obscure biology and mythical/cultural references and I love them for it.
(this is my first animated stamp so if I screwed anything up let me know)
