Mmmm.... Final boss-y. Kinda wish there was a bit more to it but its still pretty edgy as an 'evil' antagonist Pokemon.

Eh, kind of bland. It just looks like its prevo wearing white fluffy scarves. It doesn't help that they don't even look anything like real chinchillas (I know some animal-inspired Pokémon don't have to look exactly like the animals they're based on, but the Minccino line has always irked me and I've seen better Fakemon designs based on chinchillas). I will admit it does look cuddly though.

It's quite cute, and I like that it's such an unconventional design for a Dragon-type, being more birdlike rather than reptilian.

Definitely unique amongst the starter designs; I like it. Disappointed it's still not usable on the Switch.

It's cute, and it has an interesting gimmick, but that's all it's really got going for it. Kinda forgettable overall.

It is rather bland and has bad stats, although it is better than Persian, Purugly, and especially Perrserker.

I expect it to be much more powerful than it actually is. Still, have to give it credit for being one of the few Water types without the annoying and broken move Scald

A very good bug despite the bad typing. One of the many reasons Unova was so good to the Bug type.

Not a good design and nothing remarkable about it. They wasted a unique animal.

Call me basic, but I love it. It's huggable, cute, and very versatile for team building due to its many evolved forms, all if which I love as well. I do miss its old chirp-like cry, though.

As much as it got overused it was one of my first captures and I do think the design is good so I'll always have a soft spot for sparklesqueak.

To this day I still can't believe this pretty and elegant dragon evolves into a yellow Barney.

Really bad stats and not very interesting design; dex filler in its purest form.

Don't care for it. It's ugly, has a weird design, a terrible Mega, and it's just another standard bulky Water Mon like many before it, which is a rather bland and one-note archetype.

Very cute little Mon with an interesting gimmick (that sadly got taken away from it after its debut gen).

Great Pokémon and important staple of mono-Flying teams. Sad it got taken away this gen, as it and Corviknight would be a great defensive core in mono-Flying and allow you to do whatever the hell you want with the other four slots.
