  2. I do not like this pokemon. It just, irks me.

    Whatever, the concept is kind of cool. A water/poison type can be interesting. This pokemon will most likely grow on me over time, but for now...ugh.
  3. I like him. A kinda creepy, underwater Pokemon who looks a little rough. I can see myself giving him to an RP character or using him on my team if I have a spot available.

    It honestly looks like a drunk/evil version of Horsea. I don't dislike it at this stage, but it to if I actually use it will depend hugely on what it evolves into.

    It's a pretty nifty design, but yeah, bit too close to Horsea for my liking.

    I find this little critter different enough to Horsea, although I can see the drunk Horsea situation in my head, haha. I'm guessing it's based more on a Leafy Seadragon than a Seahorse, especially with the description stating that it pretends to be seaweed. I like it, although to be fair I'm liking all of the new Pokemon we've seen thus far: even the one's I'm not keen on personally are well designed :)

    This one strikes me in a curious way. I find it somewhat ugly but in a good way, as if it's meant to be ugly and looks exactly how it should look (like Muk!). This makes me appreciate its design quite a bit. It's not one of my favourite Gen 6 Pokemon but it's not a bad addition to the 'dex either.

    That being said... Drunk Horsea, lolo. So true. XD
  7. I thought the description said "Disgusted by its shape", and I thought "Yeah, I don't blame you".
  8. His design looks like a 1st or 2nd generation Pokemon to me. He wouldn't look out of place in the Johto Pokedex.
