The Top Ten

1
Seel
When I was young, I was only able to get 'fake' Pokemon cards. They messed up everywhere, calling the Pokemon what they looked like, like 'sheep' or 'monkey' etc. The only one they actually got right was seel, because they must have accidentally misspelled it. What a coincidence. If anything, it proves how unoriginal a name it is.
Seal with an e instead of the a? Marvelous!

UltimateTrubbishHater1

Creator1: hey I'm going to draw a seal then we will name it.
Creator2: sounds good
Creator1: I'm done now what does that look like to you?
Creator2: it looks like a seal. So what about seel as its name. Creator1: nobody will ever find out how we got that name.
Creator2: nope. What a great work day do you want to go to the bar a have celebrate?
Creator1: Hell ya.
Let's go.
[Newest]This is the name of a real animal anyways I bet they were to lazy to make a better name

2Klinklang
Hey I have an idea! Let's take a final evolved Pokemon and name it after its 2 former Pokemon.
That's not a Pokemon name. It's the words to the Lavender Town song.
Creator: quick we need a technological Pokemon.
Someone: hey this gear fell out of your machine I think...
Creator: A gear Pokemon! The name can is Klinklang. Lets call it a day!
[Newest]Klinklang is a Pokemon

3Mr. Mime
Hey developers, can't you see that there are such thing as FEMALE mr. Mimes.

UltimateTrubbishHater1

Just name it a mime why did you add the mr
He's a pedo clown and they name him mr mime? Perfect!
[Newest]No even a mime, so far it looks like a clown with horns, and it has a very specific title, "Mr Mime".

4Bidoof
Correction: I believe its pronounced BiDOOFUS. Or you could say BiDOOFENSHMIRTZ or however that guy's name is spelled. It's just a dumb name anyway.
What makes it more stupider is the "doof" part of its name. Stupid, eh?

UltimateTrubbishHater1

Haha. This pokemon is so stupid that it has "doof" in its name. So funny!

UltimateTrubbishHater1

[Newest]At least it evolves into a better Pokemon...

5Spoink
Spring + oink = spoink

6Durant
It's not named after a basketball player. It's a combination of "Durable" and "ant". The Kevin Durant thing is just a coincidence.
Name creator: I love basketball! Other person: Oh, and since he's an ant, how bout call him Durant. Name creator: Great idea, boss! You know that I have always been waiting to insult basketball legend Kevin Durant in a form of a Pokemon.
WORST NAME EVER!
How can you name a pokemon after a city and a person? How bout make a llama pokemon named Obama and call it clever? Dumb!

UltimateTrubbishHater1

[Newest]Is this Pokemon named after Kevin DURANT?

7Luvdisc
What is this suppose to mean

disturbedbomb

Luvdisc is named after the Discus fish, which are shaped like hearts... Actually a pretty clever name.
It looks like a peanut with a bird's beak!

8Ho-oh
So many people miss pronounce it and say ho-ho. And whenever you say it, people giggle and go "he said hoe. " It's so stupid. Love this pokemon though.
Great pokemon, terrible name.

UltimateTrubbishHater1

Ho-Oh and Lugia are major aspects of my childhood. They represented power and beauty and friendship to me, and if you've ever played anything of Gold, Silver, Crystal or HG/SS, you'd know what I mean. I am very sad and disappointed that today's people make fun of the old day's Pokemon. I liked it better back then, when we had no X and Y or Black and White. Instead, we had Gold. We had Silver. Now, we have less original Pokemon designs, and if I got to pick between Gold version or X version, I would pick Gold. Johto lives on in me.
[Newest]What? How do you say that? Is it Santa's favourite Pokemon? Weird

9Throh
"I have a GREAT idea for a Pokemon! It's great at THROWING things! Let's name it "Throw! " No, wait--let's change one letter so that it sounds the same but still looks like a name! THROH! "
Just Throh this name in the garbage can.
Laughed when I heard this name.

10Trubbish
Creator: Oh My Gosh I have a great idea for a pokemon name! Let's take what the pokemon is (rubbish, if you haven't picked up what I'm saying yet) and stick a T in front of it! Trubbish! How original! And for its evolution, we'll take what it is(garbage) and put a synonym for smell (odor) and combine it! Garbodor! I'm AMAZING at this!
Just throw it in the trash.

disturbedbomb

You know what it is!

UltimateTrubbishHater1

[Newest]Trash and rubbish? Sounds about right.


The Contenders

11Purugly
Purugly more like pure ugly
Purr-Ugly? Purugly IS a UGLY cat Pokemon but, Seriously!?!
Why would anyone call anything a name like this? Ridiculous.

12Exploud
I'm still not sure if I'm pronouncing it right.

13Magikarp
Oh! Magic-Carp (When he can't even do a good attack. )! Bounce! Flail (Maybe just call the attack FAIL)! Tackle! Oh, come on! Anyway, good job, Game Freak. So magical!
I get this one! Magic Carp! It's moves are awesome! (not.) Bounce! It's so awesome! (nice job. That move sucks.) Flail! Does 3209r42385348 damage to Arceus! (if magic carp learns it you'd might as well call it Fail.) Tackle! TOO AWESOME IF MINE LEARNS IT I'm GONNA DIE! (for magic carp you shoulda called it ATtackleSS! ) It's so awesome! ( what kinda a name is Magikarp?!?! You should have called it Magikrap.)

pokebloggerguy

Must be a magic carpet
[Newest]It's a Magic Carp! NOT. Magikarp sucks!

14Unown
I think this is a good name for tjis Pokemon because once you have caught it you will want to un-own it! ( worst pun everšŸ˜ˆ)
Do you even know how to spell "sounds"?
It's unknown why gamefreak made it. Why did you do this to us?! The answer will forever be unknown.

15Meowth
It sounds like a baby saying ouch.

Me ouch

16Dunsparce
He should be #1. Doesn't dunsparce sound stupid? Durant does too but dunsparce still is worse in battling, and names! Next time, try voting for dunsparce
When I was little I couldn't even pronounce it
Did you know that salamances highet and weight stats are identical to dunsparce

17Hitmontop

18Munna
Really they r running out of ideas at game freak it doesn't event make sense WHAT IS MUNNA
I have a munna plushie and I don't know how to explain the names to my friends

19Yveltal
I swear gamefreak is trying to teach us the alphabet. Like really. Just WHY gamefreak I mean legendary pokemon based on letters? Haven't you accomplished that with unown? Yet now you create puns by shoving a y in front of its name because its a pokemon y exclusive..
The name of the legendary Pokemon from the upcoming Pokemon Y, even though he/she/it looks cool and strong, it's name is probably the worst Pokemon name EVER!, I mean, come on Yveltal, how do you even pronounce that?!?!? , what are they thinking? , this has got to be the most hardest Pokemon name to pronounce.
WHAT? THIS IS THE WORST

20Uxie

21Alomomola
It was between this and exeggcute. I bet when they're doing the dub, whoever's voicing Ash trips up on the line like five million times, and when they finally get it right, whoever voices the PokƩmon screws it up. Like seriously! Try saying it five- no, let's make it ONE time. And about exeggcute, it sounds like something Dr. Eggman would say.

Pikachulover1

HOW Do you say this?
Oh my gosh
Laugh out loud it's a palindrome!

22Abra
Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam. Are you kidding me.
It sleeps for 18 hours a day and uses psychic powers while sleeping - Ridiculous!
Abra sounds like A Bra.

23Grumpig
WHAT IS THIS NAME FOR A GRUMPY PIG HOW ABOUT SINCE IT'S A PSYCHIC PIG CALL IT PSYCHPIG TA-the WORST NAME EVER BUT GRUMPIG ISN'T GRUMPY PEOPLE!

24Nosepass
Its a nose for the love of god.
Haha Nose pass more like No Pass...

25Ninetales
Hey guys let's dust put nine and tales together and it will be a awesome Pokemon name What the heck?!?
Why the heck would you have a Pokemon with like 3 tails then turn it into 9!
If ninetales has 9 tails Why is Vulpix not sixtales "derp"

26Garbodor

27Helioptile
His last evolution is ridiculous! Why doesn't he have 3 evolutions? Sorry for offending helioptile fans..

Number18

And you pronounce this... How?

28Arcanine
Actually it's a mixture of "arcane" and "canine", which is pretty clever in my opinion
Ha ha gamefreak. It's a police dog so lets call it RK9. A terrible name to match an equally terrible Pokemon

29Conkeldurr
Look, gamefreak. You make a name, you need to make it have a resemblance to something. Conkeldurr is just a bunch of scrambled letters
Conkeldurr: 50% concrete, 50% elder, 100% terrible name
Name manager: hey guys I clocked my head into my table for a dumb reason: NOTHING! Other name manager: I like to derp other other name manager: that gives me and idea! Let's name the next poke my mom an extravaganza: CONKLEDURR! Boss: I liek cookies art manager: yummy when you derped them

30Delibird
SO STUPID and its a bad pokemon too
Every time I hear this name, I think of "delicatessen", not "delivery". Not quite the right idea, GameFreak.
Present worst move ever and it is also in mt Everest wow delibird your deli meat.

31Xerneas
I love this Pokemon! But her name is beautiful and unique!
And yes... L call Xerneas a girl..

Number18

How do you even pronounce this? Zurr-nee-us? Anyway, it sounds pure awful. Definitely getting Y.

32Talonflame
This is a dumb name, instead of a clever word combination, they probably decide it's name like this:
Guy 1: We need another fire and bird name. What should it be?
Guy 2: GREAT IDEA! Birds have talons, and fire has flames! TALONFLAME!
Guy 1: GENIUS!
I do like the Warriors but this is a Pokemon, not a cat from a book.

RoBot214

What is wrong with you people Talonflame shouldn't be on this list PUT Diggserby on this list and plus whoever posted this should be sent to double hockey stick
Worst name ever. Sounds like one of those lame "Warrior Cats" names, or something a twelve-year-old would come up with to sound cool.
[Newest]No it's name rocks!

Number18


33Jigglypuff
I'm gonna squirtle all over your jigglypuff.

34Lickylicky
As if Lickytung wasn't ridiculous enough, now we get a Pokemon with an innuendo for its name. Someone should get the guy responsible for this name a medal, as it isn't common for games companies to get this kind of stuff past the radar. every time I read the name, I am reminded of Ash Pedreiro saying:"Ay girl..."

35Cubchoo
Thank you! Also teddiursa is way cuter than a bear with snot!
The name of cubchoo sucks I mean whats with the name between a baby bear and sneezing? But what I hate about it that its evovolutoin line is a rip off of teddiursas.

36Sawk
Creator 1: Let's make a blue rip off of Throh.
Creator 2: Great IDEA!
Creator 1: Let's name him SAWK.
Creator 2: Sure!
Both: YAY! WE CREATED A PIECE OF CRAP!
Laugh out loud at first my cousin had no Idea what Pokemon was I asked him what he thought sawk looked like and he took off his shoes..
Is Sawk a pair of socks you can put if you're going for a meeting or school!? Others will die laughing.

37Mew
You are a mad fellow

38Krabby
I now know why it wants to evolve so badly.
I feel so hungry, I need KRABBY patty

39Metapod
Come on metapod sounds stupid
Dumb name, dumb move, dumb design, dumb... Everything.

Number18


40Audino
We need a name, what should we name it?

I dunno.

Great idea!

41Tepig
He has a great name it is so cute and it should not be anywhere on this list.

42Butterfree
Its a pun, Butter and free

Do I have to explain?
Does this Pokemon not have butter?
I can't believe it's not butter

43Weedle
Wow. Get needle and put a p at the beginning instead of a W. Come on Gamefreak, use your brains.

44Shieldon

45Jynx
Stupid pokemon, stupid name
This Pokemon owes me a soda... laugh out loud
Stupid Pokemon, really racist, and stupid name!
And the worst of all... Nicki Minaj is NOT a Pokemon! I don't nicki minaj though..

Number18


46Sudowoodo
This name is cool 8)

N64Dude


47Pidgeotto

48Charizard
I can't believe I'm the first to mention this. Charmander. Charmeleon. Both pronounced right. But if we're following the correct pronunciation of Lizard then (oh god I'm gonna sound like Hermione) it's Char-Is-ard not Char-is-ARD.
This isn't even bad

49Zapdos
It's smart
Zapdos (electricity)
Moltres (molten)
Articuno (artic)

50Rattata
Hey imma make RAT YAY

51Pikachu
Pika- A type of mouse.
Chu- Japanese for squeak.
This is a good name, and, in my opinion, should not be on this list.
Worst name ever. Seel's name is more original.

InvaderRailfanPokeNerd578


52Raichu

53Persian
It's already a real word. And people complain about the new generations being "uninspired" or something.

54Gloom
ItĀ's literally just an English word!

55Mankey

56Regigigas
Laugh out loud re-kicking-ass
Pronounce it as re-kick-ass
If you are in a water battle and you use a reggiegrass you find out it is a normal type an not a grass type it has grass ind the name and it even has grass for cring out the name dose not make sence

57Magby

58Cherubi

59Pichu

60Voltorb

61Drilbur
His name is not Wilbur, because he's a mole. And moles drill. Therefore his name is drillbur. And don't get me started on his evolution...
Swab b to L and you get driblur like dribbler in basketball

62Wartortle

63Squirtle
Wow! Way to bust up creativity by combining squirrels with turtles but next time, CHANGE THE A LITTLE NEXT TIME!
Squirle is Squirt Turtle it in no way resembles a squirrel

64Geodude
It is based off of geodes
Geo Dude
Gravel er?
Golem just Golem wow
Make a rock with eyes

65Milotic
Any body heard of diego milito
Great pokemon but I'm still not sure how you say it and I mean its a sea serpent but on the flip side its original rather than black and white name system lets take a random item and put choo after it, doorchoo, tablechoo, napkinchoo, choochoo need I go on?

66Muk
Hey guys... Let's make a muck Pokemon! Hm let's just get rid of the c and call it Muk! It's even --- backwards!
Hey! Lets make a Pokemon called Muk! A disgusting piece of crap that literally (when you look at the card close enough) points its middle finger at you! It will even spell Kum (come incase it wasnt ovious enough) backwards!

I'm a genius!

67Exeggcute
Not cute at all

68Phanpy
Let's make a Pokemon that has Pham and add py. How original

69Mewtwo
They added the "two" in because it's the clone of mew so its mew #2
The person who wrote like this is a mad and mental guy
Overrated and useless. Unless you wanna look good.

Servbot


70Chatot
It's okay in battle but its name is dumb hey a parrot that looks like a tot LETS CALL HIM CHATOT

71Moltres
Men this name sucks

72Articuno
Men this name sucks.

73Dewgong
Evolved rip off of seel

74Phione
If you put a few letters in a different order, you get I phone laugh out loud!

Number18

Just phone with I in middle laugh out loud

75Diggersby

76Panpour
Why not keep the 's' motif like with it's counterparts: Pansage and Pansear. It should be Pansoak! The same goes for it's evolution.

77Entei
I know what the boss was thinking before he made this. Thank god its not an octopus.
Creator 1: Let's name a Pokemon after a car wheel manufacturer.
Creator 2: Enkei.
Creator 3: That is plagiarism. Let's replace the k with the T.
Creator 4: Great idea.
WORLD'S DUMBEST BOSS: Let's add it as a Pokemon name.

Seriously, why would someone on Earth name a Pokemon that rhymes with a car wheel manufacturer?

78Mareep
Wow that's original. WORST NAME ever
Me has named mine:MEP.

79Bagon
What. Great job, Nintendo

80Vaporeon

Namer 1: make superman weak is great idea
Namer 2: how about Dragonite, dragon eats kryptonite, cause you said 'make superman weak'
Both: WOOHOO THAT GREAT NAME EVER!

92Salamence
Why this only salamence, try this name : megagon because bagon, shelgon, and SALAMENCE?
