If you read this all your cock will grow 5 sizes.
Iconic. Perfect blend of cool and animal like. Can't pick a favorite since they all do what they're meant to do perfectly.
A step down from Gen 1 but still subscribe to the same feel as the previous starters. Feraligatr and Meganium clearly illustrate what type of Pokémon they are from design alone.
A depature but still keeping the conventional cool design. A bit more streamlined and taking a few more liberties rather than sticking to an animalistic design.
These first three I feel are the strongest designed Pokémon gens.
>GEN 3 = GEN 1 > GEN 2
More aritistic liberties are taken in regards to Empoleon and Infernape being based more on actual characters. Torterra still sticking by previous conventions. All succeed at their goal
No longer is it enough for a Pokémon to be based on an animal, its now has to be based on a character/concept too on top of representing their element. A fire sumo pig, A smug superior grass snake and a Samurai Water Otter with swords. The streak from the previous 4 gens is now broken.
Likewise with Gen 5. The Pokémon are now based on characters/concepts. However this time complementing their typing and providing a cool RPG Character Role dynamic. Mage/Witch/Fox. Rouge/Ninja/Frog. Tank/Knight/Hedgehog. More thought has been put into giving each design their own goals and I feel this is the best trio since the first three.
>GEN6 > GEN 4 >>>>> GEN 5
After Gen 6, I lose all interest. All the future designs legit just feel like gamefreak is throwing darts at a board. "Urgh a fire.... cat... who is a wrestler...." "a grass gorilla who is a drummer". Cinderace and Inteleon at least tie into the region. Being a Footballer and a 007 spy.
