    This was an extremely interesting read.
    I'm surprised how all this history about Pokemon seem to be being revealed after so long, but I'm happy to see it.
    It's funny how Pikachu's design was initially based on a food. People can't complain about Vanilluxe now :coffee2:

    I love how they mentioned that there's should always be something more to Pokemon than just being cute.
    It needs a justifiable place and role in the Pokemon world, and I believe this should always be considered when creating fanmade Pokemon too.

    Yeah, maybe they'll never bring back scrapped pokemon like they said, but it would be cool to see what they were visualizing for them.
