Robert made a point similar to this in IRC the other day to which I said the same thing: ideas are not finite. If there are ~650 odd Pokémon then that still mimics only a tiny, tiny fraction of the known flora and fauna that exists in real life.

Well, you're right in this matter, but why do I get the feeling that the principle behind some NewGen Pokemon is "unleash all your artistic imagination and make sure is goes way over-the-top, it doesn't matter if they will look weird, just do it!"...

Because not every idea is necessarily a good one :wink:

I agree with you on them probaly being fake look at the rest of the ledgit pics they have then look at the evolutions, their not drawn on the same type of matireal, and the style looks a little different.

Sorry to disapoint you, but Coro Coro magazine just revealed that first starter evolutions are, in fact, legit. And that means that their second evolutions are (probably) legit too.

This is the first time since pokemon came out that I prefer the second stage over the third stage. Also I have to say that the 3rd and 4th generation second stage starters were lame and am happy that they made some that look good.

art wise, they did look suspicious - but yeah, new corocoro at least confims that the first evo's of the starters are real. Chances are that the second evo is real too...

However, this makes me VERY disapointed in the starters. Both the Grass and the Water are pure types (acording to the info, they're secondary evolutions are pure types too) - no problem with that, but the fire starter becomes Fire/Fighting... AGAIN

Monferno and Infernape were bad enough when it turned out they were just like Combusken and Blaziken from Ruby/Sapphire... but to once again become Fire/Fighting? that's a little redundent isnt it?

Maybe it's a new starter style to have fighting as a second type? Or maybe it's connected with the supposed four new legendaries that also have fighting as a second type? Guess we'll never know for sure...

We've had Blaziken and Infernape as fire/fighting starters...

I'm getting the water starter. I always do. ^_^

To Burning Sumo-Wrestling Pigs. Because apparently Burning Karate Monkeys and Burning Kung Fu Chickens were just not good enough...

...I want a Fire\Psychic starter...
