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.

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

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

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.


I always thought its overall meant to resemble a grandfather clock personally.

That's what I figured, but I don't see a resemblence. Both are brown, but besides that?

I guess the belly, framed by the dark brown wings, vaguely resembles the tower of a clock.

Its round head is also the face, with the ridges of its eyes being the smaller clocks inside the face/the holes where you would see the gears , its eyebrows being the crest and the markings on its belly being the dangly things inside the clock.

I admit the design isnt isnt shouting you in the face telling u what it's doing, but I think its apparant enough what it is going for.

Fairy that steals keys? I dont see how you can describe it as "boring" regardless of your opinion of the design.

This is a very disjonestvtake on the Pokemon.

It makes great amount of sense for a pokemon whose gimmick is to change shape to be a very simple looking slab of jello. It invokes the feeling of silly puddy or a creature whoms anatomical structure was scrambled.

That's an understatement, lol. The only reason I'm not dismissing the idea is, that Hoothoot is so obviously based on a clock.

I kinda wish Noctowl looked more like the beta version.

As someone who's been playing these games for 2 decades and plays pretty close atttention to pokemons' visual details this I never caught on to. Idk I see it now that you explained it kinda but it's done too subtly to where I feel GF failed to convey it the idea properly.
