Oh yeah, it’s those nasty graphic designers who are perpetuating society’s warped opinions of beauty, not the big companies who hire them. Companies like Unilever, who owns Dove but also Axe, which has ads like these:
I’m sure they asked for something much more progressive, but those evil art directors tricked them into this!
Just played through Pokemon Black 2 again. Whenever I build my team I try to choose Pokemon that look good together: Yves the Cinccino, Aesop the Clefable, Minerva the Mandibuzz, Gnasher the Darmanitan, LouWeeze the Weezing, and Diennay the Vaporeon.
These guys were highly effective for beating the Elite Four (one try, no save/reset). Clefable pretty much knocked everything out (except Marshal’s fighting Pokemon) with Cosmic Power, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and Stored Power. Embargo and Haze aren’t normally moves I think of using in-game, but using them (through Mandibuzz, Weezing, and Vaporeon) kept Iris from spamming with Full Restores and Dragon Dances.
