    I had made a post like this a few days after you, but I hadn't seen yours! I think Zombie Pigmen should be like the brown mooshrooms, just a bit more common. What do you think about that? It's not common, and in your face, but it's rare enough to bring the nostalgia when you see it on rare occasion. Just imagine, it's been a while since you saw the Zombie Pigmen, you've forgotten all about them now, and then you see it, and all the memories come flooding back!

    I see what you are saying, and I like that. It balances out the aspect of the intentions of the Minecraft Devs and it keeps the people happy that the mob is still in the game... brilliant!

    I 1,000,000% agree with this idea. Its kinda like Zombies and Zombified Villagers, keep the normal Zombie Pigmen as the basic Zombie type of the Nether and have the Zombified Piglins be the type of Piglin that can be infected and become zombified.

    I made a post about this as well with the argument that the mobs should stay consistent with each other (which was the intend for this change I think). With fixing the inconsistency between zombie pigman and piglins they created another inconsistency between the group "zombie villagers, villagers and zombies" and the group "zombiefied piglins, piglins and zombie pigman". Just like the zombie villagers (which I thinks should be called zombified villagers now, as to stay consistent you know, and changing zombified piglin to zombie piglin is too similar to zombie pigman) the zombified piglins should be "infected" piglins with a small chance of spawning naturally. Not sure if it makes sense for them to be curable tho, but normal piglins should be able to get infected.

    My own post (which was posted before yours) seems to be deleted tho, therefore I am explaining my reasons here (as yours has votes already too, this seems like the most likely place to be noticed).

    The Zombie Pigman also resembles an overworld pig so it would seem normal for them to spawn when an overworld pig is struck by lighting. As for zombiefied Piglins they don't resemble an overworld pig at all, they look more like the hoglin. It wouldn't make sense for a Zombified Piglin to spawn when an overworld pig is struck by lightning. Also the Piglins skin changes to bright pink when zombified which was suitable for the Pigman but not for the Piglin as they are darker colored.

    I 100% agree with this idea. I think they should also bring back the Generic Pigmen (with original generic pigman design) and have some nether villages be piglin villages while others will be pigmen villages depending on the biome but overworked pigs will still turn into zombie pigmen and zombie pigmen will still be everywhere. Pigmen will be immune to zombification.

    Why not make zombie pigman attack piglins and the piglins will turn into zombiefied piglins

    I think Zombie Pigman should be rare.

    Zombie pigman should be more rare. zombified piglins and zombie pigman attack when you when you attack they both act like current zombified. But also since Piglins basicly are moving on from the long gone pigman they would have to add pigman that trade for rubies since that is what they where supposed to do maybe pigmen would make nether villages and piglins attack pigman like illagers attack villagers

    If they add back zombie pimen, then they should add back the even older version (regular pigmen) as well. It would nice to see a non-creepy non-gross version of the zombie pigman.
