    Who would you name something "Fair-y Floss" just because you are introducing it at a fair. I mean really, that's kind of stupid. I can't imagine why anyone would want that to be a name that might stick.

    I'd rather it be because of a bunch of things.

    Also notice how Fairy also has the word "Airy" in it.

    Which means of course Cotton Candy is mostly made of air.

    So saying it's only "Fair-y" because it's from the fair makes no sense.

    Honestly "F-airy" makes more sense if we're going to do it that way.
    I'm going to concede defeat on this Candyfloss argument. Clearly I'm not right.

    Not all birds can fly, ostritches are one of them, so that's not a valid argument. And, there are two probable reasons why Gyarados is part Flying. The first is that the evolution of Magikarp to Gyarados is based on the legend that if a carp leaps over the Dragon Gate, which is believed to be a waterfall, then it will become a dragon. The Flying part comes from that the carp has to leap high over a waterfall. The second are these.

    I know it doesn't make sense, I was just explaining why they made it a flying type

    The Doduo line probably kept it because in Gen 1 the Flying type was about to be Bird type, and when they changed it to flying they probably couldn't think of another type for the birds.
    No clue about Gyarados, though.

    I said ostriches, like REAL animals. My point was that they can't fly, yet doduo/dodrio can, that's why I don't get their flying types.

    Because he created Golurk, and Golurk is freaking awesome.

    Anyways, I think the new tree is Grass/Ghost and will have no evos, though it might have at least one preevo.

    How does you not liking 3/7 of the Pokemon he designed justify him getting sacked? I, and many others I'm sure, like all of them.

    Not a glitch, it's part of it's design, Inkay and Malamar use their lights to communicate and it's how Inkay (and probably Malamar) drains the opponents will to live.

    Well not sacked-I think I may have been too harsh saying that-but they def need to look at other talent aswell. Like I said,there are some brilliant artists doing much better designs out there on the internet. Anyone know how his appointment at GF came about? Im pretty sure he is the only westerner who works there?

    He was the game director of HarmoKnight. That, I'd assume, is his primary job since directing a game is no small feat.

    So yeah...he should be sacked -_- Plus if they don't like them then that's their problem not GF's :P

    Besides GF had enough faith in all 7 pokemon to make them official so it doesn't really matter. I hightly doubt GF go 'we want 100 new pokemon' and then the first 100 drawn are the offial pokemon.... I'm sure there are plenty of pokemon designs that they have tried but thought...'Nah' but the design will still exist somewhere and be brought back later.

    Ken Sugimori and James Turner ---------------------> fan art personally. Don't get me wrong there are some neat concepts some have done but to me, clearly Gamefreak is better when it come to Pokémon designs which is why I like all 674 (not counting Ooroto) Pokémon designs.

    From what I've heard, HarmoKnight was sort of different. I'll see if I can find the article... Ah! Here it is. To sum it up, GF recently started letting employees present new, non pokemon projects to the higher ups, who would decide whether or not to pursue them.

    And that's today's piece of trivia.

    Monorpale is my favorite Gen 6 Pokemon so far. If you have a problem with it, you can talk to the tassel hand.

    This is why we leave the Pokemon designing to the Japanese....


    I hope that the Pokemon introduced in this Gen have it similar to Gen 4. Yell at me all you want, but I like that the end of Gen 4 had a lot of past evos. But definitely not as many legendaries.

    I think Vanilluxe is a great Pokemon. Between that and Golurk, James Turner has two awesome Pokemon lines under his belt.

    And Vullaby too.

    Vanilluxe is a mutated icicle and ice cream, what's not to love?

    Sighhhh...

    That's exactly how I feel about him. I'm sure James Turner is a good professional otherwise he wouldn't have got that amazing job but I simply despite his designs... And I really mean it. I truly dislike the seven Pokémon he created in gen V (Golett, Golurk, Vanillite, Vanillish, Vanilluxe, Vullaby, Mandibuzz - actually this one doesn't bother me that much)! IMO I just hope I can change my mind about him during this gen but for now I just hope he designs the less Pokémon possible... Just please.

    The Vanillite line is actually one of my favourites from Gen 5. I don't understand why it get's so much hate, atleast it's original.
