You guys are missing my point. What i was asking was if anyone just feels bad for the Gatcha Pokemon in general. That they're basically just attack dogs who exist purely to get beaten up and (Buneary and Mincinno being a very small exception) tend to be Pokemon that aren't generally considered cute or heroic looking, and therefore the writers feel are 'disposable' mons that they dont care if the little kids watching the show perceive them as 'bad or weak' because they're used by TR.And there's nothing inherently ugly or villainous about Drilbur or Sandslash. They were chosen because they're moles and/or good at digging. A lot of Gacha mons tend to have a themed related to the episode.
Little Timmy: Hey, wanna trade for my Sandslash?
Little Tommy: Ew, no! Thats a bad guy Pokemon! I want only Cinderace and Lucario.
I'm just saying i dont care for the gatcha system TR uses mainly because the Pokkemon are treated as disposable pawns. Again, Arbok and Weezing were okay because we at least got the impression J+J cared deeply abput them. For all we know these gatcha Pokemon might be getting tortured or killed for their failres by TR HQ.
It also unfortunatly depicts them 'evil' in the eyes of the viewers simply because theyre used by TR. I know you and I dont see them like that, which is why i feel bad for how this concept 'demonizes' otherwise good Pokemon.
