Gen 3 has some hideous designs

Imagine having taste this crap.

Exploud? Slaking? Loudred? Cacturne? Glalie?

4/5 of those are pretty good imo.

I don't really get Glalie. I tried to look it up and people suggest it's like ... 5 different things, thrown into a blender. I think it sticks out in a weird way. Snorunt and Froslass are much more clear cut in their design.

Glalie is some weird sort of... rice ball ice demon.

As for boring designs? I can't think of any right now but I'm sure there are some.

Glalie is like an oni mask but styled after an onigiri rice ball. He's a living pun(ONI-giri get it ahhhhh AHHHH???) I feel his mega makes it more apparent.

I don't hate his design but I dislike his lack of limbs..

Is it really though? Aren't those like ... triangular and wrapped in a small piece of nori? I mean, the colour scheme is right, but zebras also have that.

Some people say, it looks like a hockey mask and I'm honestly seeing that resemblance more, especially considering, that it's called "the face pokemon".

Maybe Onigohri is a pun or something?
You know it's a goalie, who is also an oni, an oni goalie.

Glalie is a glacial goalie.

Its german name is Firnontor. A goalie is a "Torwart" in german. Firn is a kind of snow. Idk what the "on" means, probably "Mon" from "Monster".

So, yeah. Hockey mask! Makes perfect sense! ... Hockey masks are ... traditional japanese clothing, I think.

Also, that makes it an inanimate object pkmn, so people are sure to like it just for that.

His name in Japanese is Onigohri, that's where I'm getting the onigiri thing from.

You're right on the money about the goalie mask, as gohri kinda of sounds like goalie if you were to pronounce it with a heavy Japanese accent. Supposedly.

It's a pun, albeit a fairly forced one lol.

A pokemon built from and based around a pun by default can't be the most boring pokemon, I like Glalie so much more now.
Paper is overpowered, but scissors is fine.

Jokes need a punch line.
It's okay to admit u said something dumb. You dont need to reply to every post just because.
