    That and collapsible bikes do exist, and I believe the bikes in the games have always been described as collapsible.

    I don't think Pokemon is getting weird, been playing it since Yellow, and i'm loving it
    Your cousin just needs to go with the times, and stop living in the past.
    Plus Pokemon has to change, or people would get bored and tired with the same old thing.

    3. Being able to have only 6 full Pokéballs with you but infinite empty ones
    4. Uploading living things to a computer system
    5. A kid who has been training creatures with superpowers to battle for an amount of time larger than his current age

    ...is not weird exactly how?
    1. The bicycle could be super light and could be fold-able. it is , after all, a million pokedollars, it's must be pretty god-damn special.
    2. Not all Pokemon are 2,000 pounds. Plus when they're in a Pokeball, it's weightless, so even if you put a Groudon in there, it'll still be light ( I think...)
    3.I'm pretty sure this is just a trainer rule that you can only carry 6 pokemon.
    4. I don't think it's actually there bodies in the computer, I think they are stored somewhere in a Pokemon Center and the computer is there just to know the info about the pokemon etc.
    5. I think Ash grows gracefully, and doesn't age much.
    If you think Pokemon is that crazy, why'd you play it o.0

    I was just pointing out that some of the aspects of Pokémon wouldn't work with the physics of our Earth, at least without at least several hundred years of advanced technology involving quantum teleportation and such.

    You're talking about a game where little monsters have (limited) unexplainable control over the elements of the world.

    Can you give a few examples of such? Or is that too much to ask?

    I think so, some of the new pokemon look odd. They resemble digimon kind of.

    They look odd to you, maybe. Odd in general, no.

    Well, assuming that Mystery Dungeon 3 (2013 release) doesn't end up being the last pokemon game due to funding or fandom size or something, I'd actually like to see a gen. 6. While I believe some Pokemon aren't the best designed, such as the gear-like gen 5 pokemon, I still get plenty of enjoyment out of the game and don't mind occasionally flawed design a whole lot.

    People complain on most of all anything, even for things that don't look so weird: ice cream, ball, cat, dog....

    At least not more than they ever did before.

    This is, in fact, one of the most well-known traits, for better or worse, of the Pokémon fandom. Ask anyone in it and they'll be able to give you countless recollections of older fans complaining that the newer games aren't as good, or that the newer generations are somehow "ruining" the older ones, or (my personal favorite) that the only real Pokémon are the first 151. But there are just as many fans who'd say the exact opposite is true.

    Maybe because they want some new/better designs?

    Funny how threads like this pop up all the time. In my OPINION I think the series is getting worse. Excluding graphics and sprites, not much is really improved. I think black/white really were the worst generation of new pokemon, although I like a few such as Hydreigon. I think 4th gen. was okay Im pretty neutral to it. I think the originals were some of the best, but a vast majority of my favorites are from Hoenn notably Rayquaza and co. and my two all time favorites Salamence and Swampert. I am not speaking for anyone other than myself, but it is getting pretty weird. Some of the new pokemon are just ridiculous. I also think age is a factor as people who favor the older gens. were more likely to support them for nostalgia, while the younger fans prefer the newer gens. as that is what they have grown up with. There are exceptions of course.

    What's wrong with any of the designs?

    Kind of the point of Pokemon. The games are basically staying the same throughout their entire franchise history. People who complain that Gen Favorite is sooo much better than Gen Sucks is likely not due to any factor of quality in the games, but because they aged a decade or so between the best gen and the supposed worst gen.

    Those people have simply grown out of Pokemon.

    Some of the new pokemon are just ridiculous.
    And they're ridiculous how?

    It's funny... I was bored this summer so bought Black and White for something to do before I started university. Before it arrived I was flicking through the Unova dex to see what I might like to train... and literally couldn't find anything worth training. This gen has, frankly, sucked. The game is cool, the graphics for the earlier Pokemon are cool, but the new ones are jut embarrassing. Kanto is the best (enough of each type for a choice), Johto and Hoenn were nice, Sinnoh was cool for the evos of old Pokemon. This one brings nothing to the table.

    And if you feel that way personally, that's fine, but that does not constitute an objective assessment of the reality of the matter.
