      Kyurem's new forms. Oh, and Landorus because he looks like the king from Katamari.

        Practically every new Pokemon in Hoenn. After that region I discovered the internet and began spoiling myself.

          My Shroomish went from a weird mushroom thing to a death machine..!

          Also, Hydregion, that thing looked out of this world when I fought Ghetsis.
          And the fact that it knew both Surf and Flamethrower made me admire it.

          When I was 6, the first time I saw Tauros in the Safari Zone. It had such an empowering sprite.

              Black & White Kyurem, they are literally fusions which is a first.

                Tympole. When I ran into that little thing I drowned in the cuteness, and when that little thing evolved into the final form, I was amazed at how it went to a little Tympole to basically the best Pokemon in my team.

                    Garbodor. As soon as I saw it I was like, "Really...? REALLY?" I was honestly surprised/disappointed that they made a garbage bag Pokemon. That and Sigilyph. I have no idea what's going on with that thing...

                        Rodeo, sure Trubbish and Garbodor are unimaginitive, but so are Muk, Lickitung, Dugtrio, etc. bottom line Is Pokemon designers have always been lazy with some designs, even in the first generation. _________________________________________________________________________ Volcarona FTW! Oh and Larvesta, he is cool too.....

                        Don't get too off-topic, there's a discussion on Unova-based Pokemon in the Black/White section if you'd like to talk about Trubbish/Garbodor. Besides, he was joking when he talked about Trubbish having a food attack (although to be fair he does learn 'swallow' which is kinda food-like).

                        The first time I saw Magneton was in Pokemon Snap, which made me get shocked by it because to create a Magneton you just herd 3 Magnemite together and they connect. I was awed by the idea that you could make a Magneton like that, haha.

                            Emboar surprised me, like a lot of V gen Pokémon because of their awful designs.

                            Samurott really surprised me because it barely had any resemblance to Dewott at all. I was also surprised by Remoraid and Octillery when I first saw them next to each other in the Stadium 2 guidebook because I didn't see how they were related until a couple years later.

                              I was really surprised the first time I seen Magnezone. For some weird reason, I found it hard to belief an evolution for Magneton was made. Oddly enough, I didn't feel this way about any of the other new evolutions of first generation Pokémon.

                                  Gyarados was the most shocking, especially after I evolved a Magikarp when I played through Yellow. I think my friends told me to evolve it, and when I did, it freaked me out.

                                    For me, it's a tie between the Vanillite-Vanillish-Vanilluxe chain, and the Klink-Klang-Klinklang chain.

                                    My first reaction was that Nintendo had descended into a severe idea crisis, and I just couldn't help rolling my eyes at how ridiculous both of those evolution chains looked.

                                      You coudnt be more right, reshiram IS a gorgeous legendary, but for some
                                      reason I got white version (the one with Zekrom "). The only thing that
                                      bothers me just a little bit is that weird phallus shaped thing on Reshirams underside, LOL
