    Whenever I look at Sigilyph I see a resemblance to Unown, when it was relvealed, my first thought was 'That can't an Unown evolution can it?'

    Venonat's having butterfree's face is something most people notice. What nobody has noticed yet is that weedle and diglett actually have the same face too. I'm not quite sure why they do, but they're both brown with beady eyes and round pink noses. The rest of their bodies don't seem to relate to each other though.

    Geodude and hitmonchan are similar, particularly in their early official artwork. Their bodies aren't similar at all, but for some reason, they have the same face.

    I wouldn't be surprised if butterfree and venonat were meant to be related, but I'd imagine the other four I mentioned are just due to the artist reusing the same design.

    As for ones which kind of appear similar while not being, kabutops looks pretty similar to scyther, doesn't it? I figured the two could be distant relatives, seeing as kabutops is prehistoric.

    Well, so are the color schemes of Starmie and Drifblim; they're still not even remotely similar beyond that (other than being quadrupedal), seeing as Dialga is a sauropod and Xerneas is a stag.

    Maybe the artists just sucked at making unique faces back in 1st gen.

    Venonat was supposed to evolve in Butterfree, and Metapod was supposed to evolved in Venomoth. I'm sure they had different names before they changed the evolutionary families.

    Assuming that you aren't, I can now say that I am very glad to have missed out on that time in the franchise.

    You see, I don't understand how that would work. Butterfree is obviously a butterfly and Venomoth is obviously a moth, so even if you switched their names around, you'd still have a caterpillar evolving into a moth and a gnat evolving into a butterfly. I mean, I'll admit, it's not totally impossible, but it just seems really unlikely.

    I'm not. Also, look on the star on Garchomp, Carvharna, and Sharpedo. They have some sort of link besides being based on Sharks

    At the time, I thought that Latias/Latios would turn out to be descendants of Lugia, although nowadays I don't see any sort of resemblance between them.

    Wait, what?


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    Alomomola looks so much like Luvdisc that it still bothers me how they aren't connected whatsoever, so are Sawk and Throh, but I'm positive they WILL be connected in the future, just like Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan.

    I noticed that most Pokémon that look like they are connected but aren't are from Gen V. Simisear and Infernape, Alomomola and Luvdisc, Bouffalant and Tauros, the list goes on. I think they did this on purpose as a way of showing how Unova is different from the rest, the Pokémon there look physically similar but they are not connected, just as how in real life there are dogs everywhere in the world but each breed slightly differs from each other. I guess that's the best way of explaining it.

    Bingo-bango, that was exactly the intention.

    Caterpillars do metamorphose into moths in real life, and flies don't metamorphose into anything in real life. It wouldn't make any less sense species-wise than it does now.
