Way too humanoid for my tastes. It’s basically a furry. Which is disappointing, because I had high hopes for Scorbunny.

Meh. It’s not the worst baby Pokémon. I prefer Pikachu and Raichu by a long shot though.

All it has going for my personal feelings towards it is Pokemon Colosseum nostalgia and that it's the cattiest-looking Eeveelution. That's it.

It doesn't look very detective-like, which is a shame because it's kinda a neat idea on paper. I mean, I can see the vague resemblance, however, the color scheme really ruins it. I think Gumshoos and Yungoose were kinda screwed over by the fact that they're the "day" counterparts to Alolan Rattata and Raticate. I get that Rattata and Raticate are the "criminals," hence why they're associated with the night, but still. The bright yellow and tan doesn't exactly suggest "detective."

It's the last final evo of the regional rodent that I actually like. Still, it's kinda meh design. I prefer Galarian Linoone to it.

It's one of those Pokemon that I remember liking but the magic eventually faded away to indifference. It doesn't help that I think its Mega looks ugly.

a sand castle that has fucked up lore and is the first in the trend of concept art of pokemon killing pikachu? 10/10.

Spooky tree is spooky, but that's about all I have to say about it.

It's certainly not my favorite legendary Pokemon, but it's pretty neat. It's got a cool typing and an interesting design. Honestly it almost gives me ultra beast vibes with its weird skeleton.

virizion wireless Doesn't really stick out to me, tbh. The only really notable thing about it is its meme worthy name.

funny thing, i actually used to heavily dislike gyarados! i think this is due to liking more cute pokemon better, so i wasn't a huge fan of its design. but using it in battle back in the day made me appreciate it a lot more. :>

Wait. Didn't I already do this one? Or was it on a different thread?
Well anyway. This thing is... unmemorable. Well, the rest of the line is just as uninteresting in my view, anyway. The beta version is somewhat more interesting, but not enough that I'm clamoring over it. So.. yeah, pass.

I've flipflopped a bit on this Pokemon. There's just some aspects of its design that I just can't get behind, even though it's a cool Pokemon overall.

I like how it's very versatile in-game. When I use it, I change its type before Max Raid Battles so that it always has a type advantage against the raid Pokémon. It looks cool, too.

A little too much furbait for my tastes. Cool shiny though.

A much coolеr Dark-typе fox than Thiеvul. Its ability is amazing, too. Shamе it is so disappointing compеtitivеly.

i think donphan is actually kinda underrated, and it's rather unfortunate because while i think it's rather cool, it's also not an easy 'mon to obtain because it hasn't been available since XY. :<

Pretty cool but I think it's a downgrade from Scyther. Pincers just don't compare to sword hands.
