As the Quorum sinks deeper into the Kalos dex, I am starting to see the pattern. When a pokemon exists because there was a type they felt they “needed,” and when someone had a genuinely inspired idea. And it’s strange to see that the ratio hasn’t really changed, even over all this time. There aren’t more or fewer “junk” pokemon in the newer generations. It varies a bit of course, but it’s all within standard deviation. The passion for monster creation continues unimpeded, and hopefully will into the future.
