People can have a lot more fun with their Fakemon starter's designs. A lot of them are simply larger versions of the 1st stage, following the route you'd expect. This is very clear from fanmade evolutions for Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio online. Many are simply just larger versions of the original. That really leaves nothing unique to them at all. Just look at the Kalos and Unova starters. The evolutions all flow well together, but they're also pretty different from each other. I'll probably make a journal elaborating on this more.

I'm not gonna lie, I find some Fakemon a lot more fun and original in design than the actual canon Pokemon characters. I've found some Fakemon that hold a sort of nostalgia factor for me and gave me a similar feeling to what I felt the first time I saw them back in 96. I feel so old saying that. I was 6 years old when these games and collectibles began coming out and seeing people's designs for their own Pokemon just awakens those feelings of joy a lot more than the current Pokemon designs.

Very true. I'm not saying Fakemon in general, but the starters. I think there are some fantastic mons here on Deviantart alone that I wish were real ones. Starters are great too, but their evolutions... eh. Not to say they're not good Fakemon, but they're just way to similar to the first stage and last stage that they seem so bland. Quilladin and Brionne for example. They look very different than their pre-evolutions. They're really creative and yet they still look like they fit between the first and final stages in the chain. Quilladin looks like it could go between Chespin and Chesnaught, but it's also pretty respectable as its own Fakemon. Many artists with Chespin (when speculating for evolution designs back in XY) just made it a little bigger and not too much different. It makes it look like they're just there to transition the first stage to the last stage.
