To be fair, Pokemon hasn't really ever been THAT original. Magneton, Dugtrio, etc. I'll agree that the "new" fire fox was a bit surprising, considering Vulpix's existance, but the other two look fantabulously "new" to me. really, it just depends a lot on their evolutions/typing.
I'm actually more basing this on previous pokemon. I didn't have a problem with pokemon such as Magneton & Dugtrio back then because they were some of the first pokemon to ever exist. So the fact that pokemon had just started made it easy for them to create alot of simple pokemon because they had nothing else at the time. Now 5 generations later it's just upsetting to see new pokemon that don't really add any new variety to the pokemon we have.
