Daaaamn! I was skeptical about mega-evolutions for quite some time. And unsure how they would handle designs of the original starters, ones that a lot of us hold dear to us. But I'm pleasantly surprised with how cool these look! They stay true to the original design and not change it beyond recognition. But they add some awesome features that really make them look badass.
And before I get gen-wunners on my tail with how this sucks, consider something.
Including the original Pokemon in new games is not necessary.
If Nintendo just wanted to sell games to kids, they would advertise all the shiny new Pokemon and features.
But the fact that they've been going back to their roots and including some of the most beloved Pokemon of the older fans is something really amazing. They KNOW there are many loyal fans to the series.
This is them giving something back. A homage to the first time we picked our starters.
They're really looking out for the older fans, and I'm loving it.
Whether or not those designs are for you is your opinion.
I understand that you can't be expected to like every little thing!
However I just hope you all can see just how important it is that Pokemon respects its roots and is really playing up the nostalgia for us first gen players.
So, what do you guys think? What mega-evolution would you like to see?
(Personally I'd like to see Gyarados with a Chinese dragon-stlye design. Maybe little arms and big-ass horns!)
Venasaur barely changed, but for the flower on its head, and blastoise just got extra guns, but Charizard looks sleek, fast and insanely badass now.
Is anyone not going to pick Charizard? XD
