They could've made it better, IMO. I mean, I'm not expecting a work of art but at least something close to it.
The thing's head (and tail.......extending from its head?) is too big, for Arceus's Magikarp's sake.
....srsly? You guys are hating on it because its proportions are off? I like it a lot more then Mewtwo, who's fuglyness was off the scales.
And then there's the complaint about it "ruining Mewtwo", which isn't the case. The complaints about new evolutions "ruining" past Pokemon makes some sense, since evolutions are mostly intended to act as an upgrade (not 100% so if you factor in Eviolite). Forms are like alternatives as opposed to upgrades, so there's really no reason to complain so hard. You don't like Newtwo? Don't use it.
Well, if there's, say, two forms, each form has perks over the other form. It generally seems as if they were intended to be about as good. With evolutions, you kind of feel like you're supposed to evolve a Pokemon to its final stage; a problem somewhat alleviated by Eviolite. For example, I'm sure you've heard me bitching about how much I do not want Sableye to get an evolution. For one, Sableye is fine how it is, and doesn't need an "upgrade". Two, the evolution would look inferior (probably, to me), and I would feel like I'm supposed to evolve Sableye into the thing. With forms, this is not the case, with the possible exception of Rotom and Kyurem. If you only like one of two forms, you shouldn't feel like you're supposed to change your Pokemon into a particular form; both of its forms have their own perks without the use of Eviolite. Use whatever one you like best damnitt.I hope you're right about the Formes, and that it's just an alternative and not necessary change.
