    I think pokemon designs have evolved. Back in the days of R/B/Y no one had seen anything like this so pokemon stood out with simple designs. Fast forward to now and video games have become a lot more complex and popular so to stay ahead of the game Game Freak put all these different markings, spikes, and blades to make pokemon look "cool" to the younger audience. As proof of this take Arbok and Serperior. Arbok's markings include it's hood and the evenly spaced lines that wrap around it's body. Serperior's markings include... well just look at my avatar. A big difference right? I feel that if Serperior was made in gen 1 then a lot of the markings wouldn't be there. So do gen 5 pokemon still look like pokemon? Yes, but with a lot of accesories.
