So I saw this on another forum and I just wanted to see what you guys think as well. What pokemon has an amazing design but it rendered by an awful move pool like Flareon. Or suffer from bad stats like Mawile. Or bad typing, Celebi. Though Celebi is a really good pokemon, but her typing gives her multiple weaknesses. What do you guys say?

Basically most of Gen IV.

Combee/Vespiquen? Awesome designs, ideas, stats. Typing ruined them.
Finneon/Lumineon? Awesome designs, stats ruined them.
Kricketot/Kricketune? Cool design, stats ruined it

Looking back at Gen IV, most of the introduced Pokémon were related to previous Pokémon

Haha! Gen IV was the generation to give recognition to old pokemon that people never used often. But yeah, I agree with you about those Pokemon you mentioned, especially Lumineon. It looks beautiful and audacious but terrible stats. Crying

Oh yes, Ledian.

Cool design, but: Sub-par moves, abysmal stats, and bad typing. Really though, if you have some spare time, go check it out. The ONLY thing it has going for it is SpD. Wasted potential that can only be fixed by Mega or even regular (with 390 BST it can pass for 2nd stage).

I love Ledian's design! Just spectacular but yeah I agree with you. I would love to use a Mega Ledian in the future if possible. It's move pool is more than average as in it's more colorful than others but it doesn't have the attack or special attack stats to use them. Wasted potential like Miley Cyrus.

Leavanny, I love it's design, but its typing...is just so evil. 4x weak to Fire, Ice, Flying.

Sure, if it had HP Rock, it'd be great; but more times then not, it won't.

The biggest one I want to point out is Steelix. Onix is one of my favorite Pokémon but when it evolves into Steelix (despite its fairly cool design) but its stats are terrrrrible. I was really hoping Steelix was going to have a mega evolution as a rock-type with a dragon-type or a steel-type with a dragon-type, but that obviously didn't happen. Maybe it'll happen in the next game...
