    Gotta say, Game Freak giving us just a longer Dunsparce as a long-awaited evolution as well as us thinking Larry would have a Normal team in the Elite Four so we prepare our Fighting-types until he says it's actually a Flying team are the biggest trolls I've ever seen. Well played, Game Freak
    Spain has historically hated the UK, whether it's over the sinking of the Spanish Armada or its current dispute with Gibraltar, so it makes perfect sense to have a Galar-hating Pokémon like Tinkaton. Game Freak did their research

    Wugtrio's name actually makes more sense than you think.

    I _really_ hope that he does this kind of video again now that he’s finished the story. I’d imagine that seeing how the Pokémon move and fight could sway his opinions a little bit. Like…he said _very little_ about Mabosstiff. Anyone who’s tackled the Path of Legends knows that there’s a lot more to be said.

    • Youtube-Kit94
      Youtube-Kit94 Před 22 dny +2

      They really did a genius move with Mabosstif. Mabosstif on his own is a decent pokémon, with a fun design idea, but it's nothing special otherwise, be it stats, movepool or whatever. Then they just fucking went there and gave it cancer in Pepper's story and it probably went from a "not very special" pokémon to one of the most precious bois of the generation for many people. At least I still feel bad for any Mabostiff I k.o. even if it isn't Pepper's.

    I think Violets Paradox Pokémon are man-made. They are meant to look like Pokémon from the past but with upgrades in places. Such as Iron Valiant being fairy/fighting taking the best of the two Ralts lines final evolutions and going this will work. I have a feeling that Pokémon in the future have basically died out and now their making them, but the typing's are wrong so we're getting these robotic copycats that are just a bit off. Though each one has at least one common typing based on their original counterparts being, ground, ice, fighting, fire, dark, rock and as we understand Iron valiant is a combo of both Gardevoir and Gallade fairy and fighting. (Sorry, this is long, but it does make sense)

    • Pigeon God
      Pigeon God Před měsícem +6

      I honestly agree with this, the future of Pokémon kinda seems to be suggesting all organic ones either died out or were replaced by more efficient machines, and their names all starting with "Iron" sort of suggests they were all manufactured almost like a brand, there's no love put into their name because the ones who made them in the future only wanted efficiency, kinda horrifying to think about but kinda interesting too

    The "fire sombrero" Crocalor is wearing is supposed to be an egg on a nest. While the fire surrounding Skeledirge is meant to be this egg being hatched into a bird in the form of a Phoenix. This was based off the Egyptian plover's relationship with the Nile crocodile, as the croc relies on the plover to help keep their teeth clean and free from infection, while the plover relies on the croc for its diet. It's a really neat detail they added. Even better that Fuecoco got the Kraft Singles treatment...cheese is love, cheese is life.

      @Rubywing4 The fact that GameFreak has always felt the need to mandatorily give all fossil Pokemon (pre-Galar) the Rock type is even more astounding that there's never been a Rock/Ghost type yet. You would think that in 25 years of bringing fossils back to life, they'd somehow find a way to make a Rock/Ghost. Maybe a Pokemon that scientists weren't fully able to bring back to life and is still partially dead (zombie-like maybe?) could be that Rock/Ghost.

    • Rubywing4
      Rubywing4 Před měsícem +3

      They gave us an astounding high number of unique type combos never seen before: Grass/Fire, Electric/Fighting, Normal/Poison, Steel/Poison, Ground/Fighting, Bug/Dark, Fairy/Fighting... I don't think I'm missing anything else.
      Now we still need Normal/Ice, Normal/Steel, Normal/Bug, Normal/Rock, Rock/Ghost, Fairy/Fire, Ice/Poison, as well as proper Electric/Fire, Dragon/Fairy and Ice/Fire types, and perhaps a new Fire/Water type that's a bit easier to access than Volcanion?
      Might have missed a few missing type combos, these are just off the top of my head.

      @Quokka Waka Ah yeah, when I get drunk, I sometimes mix up my native japanese names for the pokés with the english ones lol. Yes, Mafoxie's Delphox. Or played a whole bunch on original hardware (japanese) instead of english emulators so I just deadass forget that their english name is just different from the japanese if it's an english sounding name like Mafoxie in the first place.

    • Quokka Waka

      ​​@CHclip-Kit94Bro what even is a Mafoxie 💀
      I mean I'm assuming it's some language's version of Braixen or Delphox, but it's a little confusing since you're typing in English

    • Youtube-Kit94
      Youtube-Kit94 Před 14 dny +1

      I think it's interesting to hear other people's thoughts, especially if they disagree.
      Mafoxie is one of my more favourite pokémon, but many pokétubers absolutely *hate* it because apparently somethingsomething furry bait.
      Ofc my opinions differ greatly because I personally was never on the "waah waah starters get bipedal" wagon that imo just needs to shut up.

    Tinkaton is my favorite Pokémon of the region, not because of its design (Which I do love), no, it’s because I used one in my play through and it Carrie’s throughout my whole game, gigaton hammer + play rough is all you really need

    • Rubywing4
      Rubywing4 Před měsícem +1

      I used one too in my first run, I came across the little tyke in the ruins of the Bug Gym's zone, and its typing made me put it on the team to see what it would become, and I liked its mid evo, and seeing as it had a third evo that seemed to be massive based on the sillhouette in the dex, I wanted to see what it was.
      I was surprised the Pokémon itself did not get bigger, but instead it was the HAMMER that became GIGANTIC!
      And I of course also learned Gigaton Hammer instantly, especially since it's better than HYPER BEAM and the like!
      I named mine Anvilla (because smiths use their hammers on anvils, and it's also an anagram of "vanilla", get it), and thanks to her, Tinkaton has become my new and truly favorite Fairy type (I was uncertain if I had any before, leaning towards Sylveon or Impidimp but not being strongly for either).
      I love its design, its power with Gigaton Hammer and Play Rough even if its attack isn't as high as some of the other strong physical attackers (probably to balance having such a busted strong Steel move), and of course its dex entry where it just knocks Corviknight out of the sky with rocks chucked by its hammer!
      And yet she cannot learn Smack Down?!?! That's, like, WHAT SHE'S USING TO HUNT CORVIKNIGHT WITH, how dare you, Game Freak!!!!
      Definitely want to draw a short comic of a Tinkaton preying on a Corviknight via that technique, it's just too brutal to not be done.

    • Quokka Waka
      Quokka Waka Před 3 dny

      I think the issue would be that it's too overpowered for casual play so they had to lock it behind some wacky evo method, but I don't see why it couldn't have just been like a legendary or sum

    • Youtube-Kit94
      Youtube-Kit94 Před 22 dny

      I think I'd personally like it more if it just had been a non-evolving poké. The evolution method is stupid (I just dislike evos that require multiple people because MP stuff will be shut down at some point always), the design change is basically nonexistent and imo the concept "it's an evolution but like digivolving it's not permanent would've been fucking cool... if there hadn't been a normal evo beforehand.

    BLO0DY SMILES Před 2 měsíci +69

    The thing with Dundunparce is this was the best way to do it he is legit the "nornal story about a guy turned into a legendary story about a hero."
    We have been hinted at constantly that it had an Evo that was amazingly powerful and that's not wrong BUT as the stories continued instead of just it's powers the stories slowly changed that its design also was powerful looking. It's one of those don't believe everything you hear moments and I love it

  • LazyLink17
    LazyLink17 Před 2 měsíci +22

    I gotta say, I agree with the opinions on Great Tusk and Iron Treads, I still think overall the future Paradox pokemon are more solid than the past ones. I think the implication is that the future pokemon are so far in the future, they're either modified by humans to be techno-organic, or they somehow evolved/mutated to be techno organic due to some kind of calamity. While many are clearly straight up metallic, I think a lot of them are more like the synthetic muscle and cyborg parts in Metal Gear Rising.

    • LazyLink17

    • Noahlol14 Spinach
      Noahlol14 Spinach Před 2 měsíci +7

      I respectfully disagree. I think that the future forms do not look that much different from the original Pokémon, and naming them all “iron” certainly doesn’t help. But that is just my opinion :)

  • Jayke Wojno

    On the subject of Brute Bonnet's pokeball design, hasn't it been mentioned somewhere in canon that the pokeballs are actually originally designed based of pokemon like amoongus, voltorb, and electrode? If so, Brute Bonnet's design isn't too out of place.

    • Sana’s Shy Language

    • Dudeman
      Dudeman Před 21 dnem +2

      Close; Voltorb and Electrode came from possessed Pokeballs, so the Pokeball came first (that's why Hisui's Voltorb line has the Hisuian Pokeball look). Foongus and Amoonguss are explicitly stated to be the inspiration for the design of a Pokeball.

    When will people stop with calling Mimikyu a clone. Aside from the lore being that Mimikyu is essentially dresses that way to be loved bc Pikachu is loved; it’s not even an electric type. It’s Fairy ghost. A great typing. So while it could “look” like a clone I suppose, in terms of actually move set and typing it’s not.

Maybe people assume my opinion is strictly due to popular belief? I am not saying the designs are bad, I just would not have guessed they were pokemon.

    I have a strong affinity for robots so I LOVE the robot Pokémon. And while I agree that they don’t make sense genetically, I do believe that they could make sense if we take into account that there are canonical people in the Pokémon world that want to “create the strongest Pokémon” so the existence of dangerous, man made Pokémon, is not a surprise. In fact, genesect would be the first example of this starting to happen, seeing as it’s a robot kabutops

    Here's my big issue with Quaxly. It didn't evolve into a pirate. Seriously, a pirate duck pokemon would've been amazing. I mean, come on Game Freak, DUCCANEER. The name is right there! We could've had that. And it still could've fit the Water/Fighting typing. Don't get me wrong, Quaquaval grew on me, but I'm going to be haunted by what could've been.

    • Youtube-Kit94
      Youtube-Kit94 Před 14 dny +1

      I never got where the whole pirate duck thing even came from. Duccaneer is an english pun which a japanese-based company has very little reason to go for, and considering the theme of the starters (entertainment in magic, music and dance), a pirate would only kinda work.
      I'm mostly just confused because you're not one person, but there was a chunk of the fanbase that just got rabid about this idea.

      Well said. In 25 years of playing Pokemon, I've never limited myself to a traditional team of 6 during a playthrough. My party has ALWAYS been constantly shuffled so that I get the chance to use and familiarize myself with every single Pokemon as well as all the new moves and abilities introduced. So many times do I see playthroughs and other videos made by many well known Poketubers who have been making Pokemon content for years and have hundreds of thousands of followers, yet they don't even know what a lot of moves and abilities do because they don't expand their knowledge beyond the Pokemon they like using or find "cool".

    I disagree with the whole “hate the bipedal” thing. I think it’s fine. While I think there should be balance, it shouldn’t garner hate since one of the big things about Pokémon is evolution (which means some Pokémon will evolve to be bipedal… DEAL WITH IT). I like the grass starter of this Gen. I like how Meowscarada has a design attributed to a magician/entertainer, given its signature move is Flower Trick. Sometimes magician garb is unsettling and THATS OK!
