    I always wonder who had the bright idea of giving Gyarados the flying type. Seriously, he looks like a dragon, just make him dragon type. -_-

    Because in Gen I the only dragon attack was dragon rage which always does 40 damage no matter what. So if they made Gyarados Dragon/water type, he would be way too strong and difficult to defeat since his only weakness would be from dragon attacks.

      If that's the case, then keep his typing for Gen I and switch it for Gen II like they did with Magnemite.

      I have a bit of an aversion to a lot of Gen I Pokemon, idk why. I like them but I don't like using them or talking about liking them, you know?

        Totally. I'm the same way. The only Pokemon that I've used from Gen I on an actual team I think was Growlithe and Arcanine.

        What's your favorite gen of Pokemon? :D

          Oh here we go again. >.<
          Why do people dislike Garbardor but like Muk? They're both annoying piles of crap.

          Trubbish and Grimer are equally adorable. Muk and Garbodor are equally annoying to me. I don't find their designs bad, I just find them boring and they're like Zubat in sewer areas.

          Fifth gen is my favorite easy though.

            anyone else think we should change the thread title to Genwunners Take Over?
            Maybe slightly. Trash> Slime, if you really had to pick. >.<

            They were created as parallels so it makes sense that they're close together in design.

              I don't like Unova very much for some reason. Mostly because the storyline was boring and the landscape was unoriginal. Either Hoenn or Sinnoh gets the top award for me, probably Sinnoh because the whole Lake Trio and Legendary Mascots tied together so well.

                From a blog I've read regarding Trubbish, he's suppose to be the missing link of Poison types of the land, air (Koffing), and sea (Grimer), which means Trubbish's creation was long overdue.

                  That makes sense, but why would they do it so late?

                    May it has something to do with the supposed themes for each region that determines which animals, plants, and inanimate objects are needed for that region to fit the theme.

                    Something about Garbodor being this...trash bag that's falling apart always sends horrific parallels into my mind with horror movies.

                      Yea this. I read it somewhere before as well. I understood Garbodor's purpose afterwards haha

                      oh plus watching Homika and Garbodor battle Satoshi was pretty rad!

                      Oh, so that's what Garbodor looks like.

                      He's pretty badass, don't know why you don't like him. :c

                        Garbodor and Muk are pretty much the same and if Garbodor was introduced in the first Gen i doubt it'd get so much hate.
