Does ken sugimori design every Pokemon?

I know he drew the original 151 Pokemon by himself, but the gen 5 designs are totally different and crappy. Did he make those too?

i wasn't really calling those pokemon crappy (although I really don't like Muk or Electrode), I was just pointing out that there are some rather un-inspirational Gen 1 pokemon, and there are a lot of Gen V pokemon I quite like.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??!?!?!?!?!?!
PIDGEY IS MOST INSPIRED POKEMON OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!
Cram it, Desdinova :P
"Ermahgeh, Vanilluxe is totally uninspired because it's an ice cream that splits in two!"
Because Dugtrio is the epitome of creativity. A toe that's poking out of the ground became three toes that poke out of the ground.

You might want to get your nostalgia glasses fixed.
reckt :P

As an example, while the original 151 were personally designed and drawn by Sugimori, by 2010 and Pokémon Black & White he was leading a large art team, who all worked on creating new creatures for the game. Despite this, Sugimori had the final say on designs, and all final character art was still his sole responsibility, maintaining a tradition that has seen every piece of official Pokémon creature and character art come straight from Sugimori's pen (or computer).
