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.

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.

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

UltimateTrubbishHater1

He's a pedo clown and they name him mr mime? Perfect!
Just name it a mime why did you add the mr

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!

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!

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.
This is what the creators were like:
Pokemon creator:Hey! I just found love! Now I'll express it in pokemon form!
Other pkmn cretor: lets make it a heart! And lets change the name from "love" to "love"! I'm AWESOME AT MAKING NAMES!
Here is what I say from that: pkmn creators. Love disc is the worst name for any pokemon :(

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

I once was talking about pokemon with my friend and he menshand Ho oh and I had no idea what it was so that night I looked up Ho oh and I'm like I KNOW THAT POKEMON and then I thought that's a STUPID NAME for it
More comments about Ho-oh

9Trubbish
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!

"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! "

The Contenders

11Exploud
I'm still not sure if I'm pronouncing it right.
Ecks-PLOWD if you need to pronounce it
Best pokemon ever who ever put this up sucks

12Magikarp
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.)

13Purugly
Purugly more like pure ugly
Why would anyone call anything a name like this? Ridiculous.
Purr-Ugly? Purugly IS a UGLY cat Pokemon but, Seriously!?!

14Unown
Why is this a Pokemon? Sownds like unknown

bashfulfox

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"?
More comments about Unown

15Yveltal
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.
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..
I can't even pronounce this thing. It was just a stupid gimmick of it being a Y exclusive Pokemon.

16Meowth

17Dunsparce
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
Dunsparce? More like DUMBSPARCE!

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

19Hitmontop

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!

22Nosepass
Its a nose for the love of god.

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!

24Garbodor

25Helioptile
And you pronounce this... How?

26Ninetales
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"
More comments about Ninetales

27Arcanine
Ha ha gamefreak. It's a police dog so lets call it RK9. A terrible name to match an equally terrible Pokemon

28Conkeldurr
Look, gamefreak. You make a name, you need to make it have a resemblance to something. Conkeldurr is just a bunch of scrambled letters
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
This name is DURRP

29Delibird
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.
Hey I have a good idea lets name the santa bird a sandwhich and a bird to make delibird. Yay. * face palm * seriously bad name. Its just that bad

30Xerneas
What? You illliterate MFs its pronounced SIRNEAS
How do you even pronounce this? Zurr-nee-us? Anyway, it sounds pure awful. Definitely getting Y.
I LOVE THIS Pokemon! HOW DARE YOU! YVETAL SUCKS!
(yvetal is the ledgendary in Y)

31Talonflame
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.

32Cubchoo
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.

33Sawk
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..
Sawk is like an idiotic sock

34Krabby
I now know why it wants to evolve so badly.
It's a crab so they were brainless and called itā€¦...
MAN THAT'S A FUNNY COMMENT! Laugh out loud!

35Metapod
Come on metapod sounds stupid
IT SOUNDS LIKE META KNITES BROTHER.

36Lickylicky
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..."

37Tepig
He has a great name it is so cute and it should not be anywhere on this list.

38Butterfree
Its a pun, Butter and free

Do I have to explain?
It sounds like a pokƩmon that's going on a diet. I'm sick of Nintendo and gamefreak giving cool pokƩmon stupid names!
Does this Pokemon not have butter?

39Shieldon

40Mew
MAN for awesome legendary pokemons there names sucks I mean naming a pokemon after a cats noise? Mewtwos is even worse with the number 2 on it. And he's the best legendary pokemon I ever seen. WHY GAMEFREAK WHY!

41Jynx
Stupid pokemon, stupid name
What... Wha... The hel... How is this a name... Although a terrible name suits a terrible Pokemon...
This Pokemon owes me a soda... laugh out loud

44Pidgeotto
That should be pidgeots name

45Charizard
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.

Zapdos (electricity)
Moltres (molten)

51Gloom
ItĀ's literally just an English word!

52Voltorb

53Drilbur
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

54Wartortle
MY FRIEND SAID DID YOU KNOW THAT WHEN SQUIRTLES EVOLE THEY ARE USED IN WAR? I DID NOT WANT TO HURT HER. FEELINGS SO I SAID SURE

55Squirtle

Geo Dude
Gravel er?

Must've got it from sponge bob, Patrick: LEEEDLE LEEDLE LEEDLE

58Milotic
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?

59Muk
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!

60Exeggcute

61Phanpy
Let's make a Pokemon that has Pham and add py. How original

Creator 1: Let's call it "Diggersby"
Creator 2: EPIC IDEA!
Worlds Dumbest Boss: I LOVE it! Duh...

69Raichu

70Panpour
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.

71Entei
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?
You didn't even mention the fact that 'Entai' (Bearing in mind that Pokemon is Japanese), is just 'Hentai', minus the H...

72Mareep
Wow that's original. WORST NAME ever
Me has named mine:MEP.

73Bagon
