Have you ever wondered if Game Freak have gotten lazy and just modified a Pokemon to be a new one.

I'll start!

This doesn't really belong in Pokemon Trivia. I'm going to toss this over to Pokemon General, and Miss Doronjo can deal with it from there.

I suppose the elemental monkeys look similar to each other.

And of course, Plusle and Minun.

I think Rhyhorn is similar to Lairon,
and Rhydon / Rhyperior is similar to Aggron.

Most of the bird types, Like Pidove, Starly, Pidgey, they all are so small pre-evolved, and they are just basically colored a bit different..*shrugs* A lot of Pokemon look alike, those were just the ones that have bothered me for awhile >_>. Sorry I dont have the little animation things..dont know how to get em :o

Actually, I'd say that Emboar is really:

And though Poliwrath IS Poliwhirl's evolution, one can't help but think that out of all of them (with the possible exception of Klinklang), Poliwrath makes the least change in transition from it's earlier form.

Change Poliwrath's eyes to those of Poliwhirl's, and it's little more then a muscle-packed Poliwhirl, having less difference between themselves then Frillish have between genders.

If this counts, Plusle and Minun. If not:
-Bidoof, Sentret, and Patrat
-Pachirisu and Emolga
-Galvantula and Ariados
-Forretress and Ferrothorn
-Croagunk and Scraggy

Surely Pikachu and ALL of its clones takes the cake? Plusle, Minun, Emolga... they're just thinner Pikachu without the red cheeks (and, in one case, added wings)!

I even have a habit of attacking Basculin with bug- or fighting-type attacks expecting them to be supereffective. D:

Really though, I think they're supposed to look similar. It's not like they're unrelated to each other.

I think the majority of pokemon, even if they have similarities have enough differences to make them stand out as individuals.

After all, different species of animals sometimes look similar in real life.

The genie trio I can forgive because it's easy to distinguish between them because they have different color schemes to match their different types, but the lake trio are just unbearable. They're far too similar to eachother for me to think of them as individuals, simply as a group. :/

Treecko - Snivy

Treecko's tail is a leaf and so is Snivy's.
They're the fastest starters in their generations and the weakest ones offensively too.

That's not true! Sceptile got quite a special attack, combine that with the fact that all grass moves were special in gen III as well as the fact it had access to the most powerful grass move at the time, Leaf Blade, it was quite deadly.

Also I don't think the 2 of them look similar at all. Treecko has got much larger arms and legs compared to Snivy, while Snivy has got a longer body. The tails are also quite different, treecko's isn't as flat as Snivy's. the Shapes of their tales is also quite different.

for example, diglet > dugstrio
magnemite > magneton

If you sum their base offensive stats:
Sceptile: 85 + 105 = 190 least offense
Swampert: 110 + 85 = 195
Blaziken: 120 + 110 = 230
Serperior: 70 + 70 = 140 least offense
Samurott: 100 + 108 =208
Emboar: 123 + 100 = 223

Leaf Blade's Base Power in Generation III was 70. SolarBeam's was (and it still is) 120 in that Generation. Oh, I forgot!!! 70 is bigger number than 120!! Oh dearie me...

By the time you're able to launch you solar beam, I've already had the chance to strike twice with my leaf Blade. And base 105 Special attack is pretty high.

And not counting Serperior's hidden ability, Sceptile still has more offense, as well as a larger movepool.

Sorry, but this thread is two years old and therefore long dead. You should post in THIS thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=303527) instead though, since it is pretty much about the same thing!
