So when the first main batches of Gen VII Pokemon were revealed I remember being slightly underwhelmed by some of the designs
To be honest, I still stand that some designs are a little off, but I've learned to really appreciate - what I think - is the new angle Gamefreak took to designing the new batch.
One thing in particular I really appreciate is the amount of personality and character each one has - and the official descriptions on the Pokemon website (which are much more extensive than the generic in-game Pokedex entries) showcase how fleshed out each of these Pokemon are with regards to their personality, their behaviour and their roles within nature
I still have my old favourites like Lapras and Drifblim which have perfectly fine designs, but now I like the extra steps taken by the designers to invest the new Pokemon with memorable personalities and characters.
I guess it's given me less of a focus on designing pretty Fakemon
I've also noticed I haven't uploaded a new Fakemon in five months... so hopefully that should change some time
