I remember everyone thinking Spritzee was gonna evolve into some sort of plague doctor inspired thing when it was first revealed, but were dissapointed when we got Aromatisse. I personally like Aromatisse but I do kinda wish they'd gone with what people were hoping for because that could've been really neat, especially if it was fairy/poison and whatnot.
I see– I didn’t really have an online presence back when X and Y were coming out so I missed out on a lot of the speculation with others. They are strange little guys for sure but they’re pretty cute I think! They’re definetly bird-like. They always kind of reminded me of something from a Serendipity book so I kinda accepted how weird and hard-to-define they look. c:
