Top 10 Worst Pokemon Names

UltimateTrubbishHater1

The Top TenXW

1Seel

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.

It's just seal without the a and add the E... Best name ever (sarcasm)

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!

Klinklang is a Pokemon

He's a pedo clown and they name him mr mime? Perfect!

Mr. Mime? Isn't it obvious that it is a mime? Oh, a mime Pokemon! Lets call it, umm... Oh! I got it! 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

At least it evolves into a better Pokemon...

5Spoink

Spring + oink = spoink

6Durant

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!

It's not named after a basketball player. It's a combination of "Durable" and "ant". The Kevin Durant thing is just a coincidence.

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

What's the name of Durant evolution? Bryant, James, Jordan?

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.

To true it's a love heart with eyes and a beak I don't love this Pokemon

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.

What type of pun is this, They should of called it: Rainbird instead of Ho oh

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

Looks like a barf bag, and I'd say it's a decent name for the piece of junk

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 ever😈)

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.

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

18Yveltal

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..

WHAT? THIS IS THE WORST

I can't even pronounce this thing. It was just a stupid gimmick of it being a Y exclusive Pokemon.
