Noctowl

Idk how this topic was around for an entire day without anyone mentioning Noctowl. Was it so boring, that you all forgot about it?

Nobody mentioned Persian either.

Pidgey is also just a bird (like, not even anime bird, just bird).

Pidgey is definitely a cartoon bird. lol
It's a boring cartoon bird, but still a cartoon.

I was thinking of persian but figured someone would have mentioned it already

Noctowl has a great design though.

Persian has sass and it's the original snobby mon of choice. Plus it's like a natural heel, which is probably why the anime always has it in an antagonistic role. Giovanni kind of made persian more liked by association too.

Noctowl while disappointing in how it drops hoothoot's clock theme, is actually kinda badass looking? Plus I like how it's more defensive for an early bird and is underrated if anything.

Discounting the cocoon crew:
Krabby's line
Klang
Bronzor (cool concept and I love the line, but in essence it's a circle with more circles across it)
Alolan Diglett
Sawk/Throh
Clauncher
Zeraora
Pidgey/Pidgeot
Amoonguss
Lanturn (at least compared to Chinchou)
Kanto Raticate
Swanna
Meltan (it'd be fine if it wasn't so Ditto-like)
Ferroseed
Stantler
Non-Therian Forces of Nature (or at least 2/3 of them)
Basculin (poor, poor Basculin...)

I'd say Electrode and Voltorb too, but I think that's the intention, and Electrode has a nice smile.
*horrible bird imitations*
I'm probably either bored or procrastinating. Or both.

One can probably write down a paragraph like this for virtually any pkmn. I think they're uninspired designs.

In all fairness, the graphics were pretty limited back then, so the designs had to be simple, but a creative design doesn't necessarily have to be complicated. Owls are known for twisting their necks. That could have been a neat hook for a clock motif on Noctowl.

Have you seen both Red pidgeys? Like, that's a drawn bird. That's what I'd expect in a high school art class (not as an insult). Like, later Pidgeys (maybe even as soon as Yellow) actually look like anime bird.

Noctowl is actually one of my faves. It's interesting enough with its clock theme that I cant realy call it boring.

Oh, you mean the og sprite looked like a literal bird? Yeah, I can see that.

I don't see the clock theme in Noctowl tbh. I can see its beta version resembling some kind of egg timer, but I'm lost on the final design.
