"Mindfuck"? Really? This classifies as a mindfuck? They're the same fucking species of pokemon, you ass. Of course they have similar faces. Am I missing something here, or is this post really that retarded?
they are not the same species. The one on the left is Venonat. Venonat turns into Venemoth not Butterfree. Buterfree (on the right) comes from caterpie/metapod.There for this is only a mindfuck because the programmers at first wanted this to be the evolution line up but changed it before the game was released. Yet they left them looking the same. This also explains missingno. because that was to be a chain evolution of cubone/marowak/genghaskan. but they changed that too but left the coding in so it causes a glitch.
No. A Venonat and a Butterfree aren't the same species. They're not even in the same evolutionary chain. The only similarity is that they're both Bug types. I think.
They're both also purple, have similar antennae, and have the same little huggy hands. I figure this was the original pre-evo of Butterfree, but they thought it was too predictable/boring of a change so they swapped it out.
I thought that was the moth guy Venonat turns in to? Still, even if it's not the same evolution, it's not really a "Mindfuck," like first anonymous poster said. This was the first series of pokemon, back in the 8-bit days of gaming. There wasn't a lot of room for creativity, I'm sure stuff like this pops up alot in the series. I'd say it's still horrifically lame.
About the post on October 7thThe originals at the bottom are the true originals. They were changed because the big wide eyes were approved by audiences over the originals.If you look, metapod's "horn" coincides with venomoth's head, and the antennae of venonat coincide with that of butterfree
Johnny Macheechee was here.
Venonat and Caterpie's final evolutions were originally backwards (with Venomoth being Caterpie's final evo and Butterfree being Venonat's) but, for some reason, they were switched.
Someone should make a horror story out of the last Anon's post.
