Pokémon Ramblings No. 2
Why Butterfree should be the Evolution of Venonat


I was playing Pokémon recently killing the time between classes on Fire Red. During a break I was going through the Pokédex entries comparing Pokémon when I was looking at Venonat and Butterfree. Then I began to notice some similarities between Venonat and Butterfree:

Antennae, Separate hands and feet, Big red eyes, Mouth, Similar color.

That’s when it made me think that Maybe Butterfree and Venonat were designed at the same time and Carterpie, Metapod, and Venomoth came later.So I began decided to check the Similarities between Caterpie, Metapod, and Venomoth:

Metapod and Venomoth’s three-pointed head. Eyes, Caterpie/Metapod’s tail sections look similar to Venomoth’s abdomen, Four exclusive legs on both Caterpie and Venomoth.

So it’s really strange. The world of Pokemon is so unique, yet some characteristics from different evolutions appear on different Pokémon.

What do you guys think?
