A little project I started back in my teens and keep going back to poke at some more every couple years, this is a massive, ridiculous series of reviews of Pokemon designs from a subjective perspective, chatting about what I like about them and what I don't. Yes, every single one. Enjoy the dumb.

Before we start, a little key of what the Pokeball icons next to some of these reviews mean:

- Love Ball indicates a 5/5 rating

- Master Ball indicates a "gold ball" rating
