It's because you're too young.

Or maybe it's because I'm not taking nostalgia into consideration.

I like pretty much all of them, *some* of the alolan forms made them worse though.

Oh, god, don't even remind me of Alolan Persian and Dugtrio...

Gen 5 still has the worst in my opinion, I mean especially when half the dex was set to emulate the original pokemon. 

My problem with Gen 5 is it trying to emulate Gen 1, but I think the designs are better overall.

Though newer gen will never match the iconic and simplistic design of Gen 1 so your point is still mooth ...

People really do not like things that are popular don't you know. However if we are talking worse, Gen 5 and 4 take the cake for me. Gen 6 was a breath of fresh air.

Gen 5 is definitely worst. I think gen 3 was the best overall.

I'd probably say Gen 6 is my favourite design-wise.

I disagree. Recent Pokémon generations had much better simplistic designs. Just look at Rockruff, Skiddo, Pyroar, Rowlet, Helioptile, etc.

It's a tough battle tbh

And it's Gen 1 what do you expect?

Exactly. I'm not saying it was bad for its time, I'm just saying why I think it's the worst one considering the whole series.

The only gen with a Polar Bear Pokemon was the "worst"? Why do you hate Polar Bears?

Gen 3 was awesome though, I can agree there.

It had a few good Pokemon, but it was definitely the worst overall. I don't like any of the 3 starter lines very much. The 3 elemental monkey lines look dopey as heck, that dumb coffin Ghost pokemon, a literal bag of garbage pokemon, the creepy looking Goth line, an uninspired ice cream pokemon line, the mushroom Pokemon that looks kind of like a butt plug (once you see it you can't unsee it I assure you), the uninspired gear pokemon line, the uninspired snowflake pokemon, some of the worst bird pokemon of any gen (the swan, the buzzard, and Rufflet), one of the worst dragon lines, my least favorite legendary trio. I also don't like any of the Swords of Justice, the 4th one, Keldeo, looks like some of kind of My Little Pony reject).

lol no

Gen 5 was easily regarded as the worst gen for pokemon designs. 6 and 7 they stopped adding so much which helped, but gen 1 is iconic.

3 and 4 were ok overall.

1 and 2 had the best pokemon designs



I think anything gen 4 and after looks terrible.



I bet the Wii U would sell more than 15M LTD by the end of 2015. He bet it would sell less. I lost.

Hard disagree there. Sure gen 5 was bad, but 4, 6, and 7 have some great designs. As a for instance, my all-time favorite water starter, Greninja, is gen 6, and my all-time favorite grass starter, Decidueye, is gen 7.

Greninja looks terrible? Decidueye? Xerneas? Pyroar? Tyrantrum? Aegislash? Trevenant? Aurorus? Vivillon? Zoroark? Luxray? Primarina? Mimikyu? Electivire? Leafeon? Gallade? Torterra? Infernape? Lucario? Lycanroc? Vikavolt? Passimian? Krookodile? Bisharp? Golurk? Braviary? Volcarona? Mudsdale?

Yeah, sure, every single Pokémon from number 387 to number 807 looks terrible.
