I'll agree on Steelix, Electivire and Gallade. But the Eeveelutions since the originals aren't that great, especially the most recent, and Mamoswines whole family sucks really. There are a couple of cool ones, but I'd really prefer a new original pokemon than an evolution of an old one, especially whenj they hove some retarded new evolution mechanism like level up in this particular place or with this particular attack.
Scizor is another exception of course, although Scyther is cool too, they're about even really.
I actually prefer the concept of granting new evolutions to old Pok√©mon ‚Äď seeing the old Pok√©mon I remember from my childhood given this sort of treatment interests me far more than any of the brand-new Pok√©mon (about most of which I couldn‚Äôt care less). The problem lies in the execution of these ideas ‚Äď the retroactive evolutions have a tendency to be crap. I think the additions by which I was most offended were Magmortar, Electivire and Togekiss.
