The Top Ten

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!


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]True, very true, terrible name

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.


Just name it a mime why did you add the mr
He's a pedo clown and they name him mr mime? Perfect!
[Newest]I just nickname the females Mrs. Mime.

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?


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


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

Spring + oink = spoink

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.
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!


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

What is this suppose to mean


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

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.


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]Powerful Pokemon one of the coolest but the name isn't bad but not good

"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.

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.


You know what it is!


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

The Contenders

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.

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

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.)


Must be a magic carpet
[Newest]I was scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, WHERE IS MAGIKARP Oh There he is

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.

It sounds like a baby saying ouch.

Me ouch

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


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.

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
