Deciding for #001 - Bulbasaur

     This discussion, like many of the beginning ones will be, is more a courtesy than anything else. It's Bulbasaur. Of course we aren't going to cut him.
     However, as this is the first discussion on the website, we might as well get some practice, right? So, here are my thoughts on Bulbasaur:

Name: Good

     Bulbasaur's name isn't anything hugely clever, but it sounds nice, and is more creative than simpler ones like Meowth. So I would call this a slight point for little Bulby.

Appearance: Very good

     Bulbasaur (obviously) has the classic look, and honestly, he's just plain cute. The patches of darker green are a stylistic choice of a type that seems to be becoming very rare in modern Pokémon. Bulbasaur has a surprising amount of subtlety to him. The ear-things are close to his head, not overly pointy, and don't stick out much. His legs are small and simple. He has tiny little-bitty teeth. Also, he has red eyes that are still cute and not at all creepy. Lastly, though, is the little mark by the inside top edge of his eyes. That is something you only see in older-style Pokémon.

This discussion will be closed at midnight on October 22, 2015.

Bulbasaur was added to the True Pokedex.

There was only one opinion given, so if anyone would like to reopen discussion, comment.
