No. 720: Hoopa

If you remember Hoopla Sports Cards, and the ads they used to have on Kids WB back in the early 2000's, then you are my brother.

Okay, what's a Sonic the Hegehog character doing here? Isn't there a djinn in Sonic who steals his rings and stuff? It seems like something that exists. Anyway, Hoopa looks kinda cool. I like floating arms, and I like side-head horns. The rings are I guess sort of a reference to him being bound by them (despite only one looking like it's doing any actual binding), or the Ring of Solomon, idk.

But hey, for a little trickster genie imp, he's pretty neat.

Confined: 8/10

However, things are never that simple. Of COURSE he has an additional form, and of COURSE it isn't a Mega Evolution. I mean, it shouldn't be, or maybe it should. They've had alternate formes for years now, and maybe just retroactively making all those Megas would have simplified things a bit. Say Zen Mode Darmanitan is just Mega Darmanitan. And this would mean that Megas aren't always superior, but sometimes just alternate ways to play the Pokemon - like the grooves and -isms of Capcom vs SNK.

However, we have both going on, and it's just stupid. But back to Hoopa - he's unbound, and just breaking out in every way. Six arms, dimensional portals everywhere, big ol' hair, demon tail, he's got it all. And you know what? It looks freaking rad.

But it doesn't look like a Pokemon. I LOVE the floating arms, and the way he makes pink and white look badass. But he's more like Final Fantasy's Gilgamesh if you removes his arms, than a Pokemon. I gave Golurk and Bisharp shit for this, so I'm afraid I must do the same to Hoopa. He's cool, but really does not fit in the game at all, and I don't like that they continue to introduce new stupid Formes when they already have Megas. Take out the Megas and keep formes, or make all formes Mega. Can't have your cake and eat it too, Gamefreak.

Unbound: 4/10

Overall: 6/10
