Top Ten Stupidest Pokemon Names

The Top Ten
1 Purugly

What is this name? The first time I heard it I knew its ugly. I was like, "What does it look like? Is it ugly? " My classmate said, "The ugliest cat you've ever met." Ooh, let me see. When I saw it I almost throw up. Evolves from a not-so-ugly butt, and evolves into the almost ugliest Pokémon I've ever seen!

I really thought Purugly would have more supporters, actually. Although the name is stupid, who doesn't love a territorial fat cat who wants all the attention? I personally love the design and concept.

Well I had a Glameow, and I nicknamed it Meow. But then it evolved into Purugly. It was so ugly, I changed its nickname to Pure Ugly. ThenI gave it to my friend.

2 Seel

Yeah I can relate to this name. I'm quite surprised Krabby didn't get on this list I mean like the creators were running out of animals to base off of and one person was like wait I've got an amazing idea let's call it crabby but with a K, and everyone agrees!?!

Namer: Were closing down we need a quick name for a seal Pokemon!
Guy:I know how about we just change a letter?
Namer:Yo that's is the greatest idea ever!

Oh wow, you misspelled a real animal and made it the name of a Pokemon!

3 Trubbish

It's literally "trash" and "rubbish" combined. Duh.

Tree, rubbish. He is literally a garbage bag!

4 Lickylicky

This Pokemon looks stupid and it's name is even stupider. Who would come up with the name "Lickylicky"? That's so unoriginal!

It is really stupid looking. They also gave it a stupid name. Lickylicky. Should never exist.

You people, this isn't a Pokemon! If you knew, the correct term is Lickilily... How weren't you able to see that...

5 Nosepass Nosepass, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
6 Weezing

I'm assuming this Pokemon sneezes... a lot.

7 Foongus Foongus, known in Japan as Tamagetake, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Back Away it is some poisonous.

Wait until a brown mushroom Pokemon then nosepass plus foongus plus squirtle is Mario

8 Voltorb Voltorb is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in the Pokémon franchise's first generation. Resembling a Poké Ball, Voltorb often surprises trainers by self-destructing in battles. Its unique design and explosive abilities add an unexpected element to battles, making it both a challenge and a strategic... read more

Ah well. Volt orb. NOT GOOD!

Creator 1: Quick! We need a name for an electric ball!
Creator 2: Idea! Let's call it Voltorb!
Creator 1: WOW! I'm speechless! You're the best!

Son of a- This is one of the BEST Pokemon names in Pokemon history! Don't put it here!

9 Drowzee Drowzee, known in Japan as Sleepe, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This reminds me of how some weird parents give their kid a word name, for example "Paisley", then they ruin it by changing the spelling to something ridiculous like "Payzlee". Who spells "Drowsy" like that? And who wants a Pokemon whose main attribute is being tired?

He makes you drowsy so call him drowsy!

10 Geodude

When I heard this name I'm about to fly to outer space because it's too funny! At school, we usually call geography geo. Then when I heard the word Geodude I start to think about geography dude! The person who said Geodude is part of the earth is correct. Rocks! Minerals! See? Just a perfect part of our earth!

Wait a minute! geodude is a geo dude! geo dude means a dude that is relating or part of the earth

The Contenders
11 Ninetales Ninetales, known in Japan as Kyukon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why does such a gorgeous Pokemon have the dumbest name ever? It has 9 tails, let's just call it Ninetails!

Excellent design, but it has the single stupidest name! It's just the number of tails it has!

Really creative game freak. You have really out done yourselves this time.

12 Muk Muk, known in Japan as Betbeton, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

"What should we call the muck Pokemon"
"I know muk"
"You are a genius. Where in the world do you come up with these great names.

Wow! Creative name! And guess what it is spelled backwards. That's right. It's kill me right now.

What's Muk spelled backwards?

And let's be honest here, he doesn't look too far from it.

13 Igglybuff Igglybuff, known in Japan as Pupurin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Probably because it's really buff.

14 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime, known in Japan as Barrierd, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Mr.Mime's name is another one of those that felt like Gamefreak couldn't think of a name for it so they just slapped Mr. in front of the pokemon's concept.

15 Sawk

It's called Sawk because it's a SAWK puppet. Ahahahaha! *runs before tomatoes hit me*

16 Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y.

17 Guzzlord Guzzlord is a dual-type Dark/Dragon Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-05 Glutton.

I know people love this name for a Pokemon, I do too, but let's be real here: It's a really stupid name.

18 Krabby

Probably named that because it's feeling CRABBY! Oh how I love to make bad puns.

I would like one more Krabby Patty, please.

Can we make a Krabby Patty out of this one?

19 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a psychic-type Legendary Pokémon from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, it made its first appearance in the games Pokémon Red and Blue.

It's mew no two, which equals Mewtwo.

Nothing bad about it actually.

20 Granbull Granbull is a Fairy-type Pokémon first introduced in Generation II. It evolves from Snubbull and is characterized by its large jaws and intimidating demeanor. Despite its fearsome appearance, Granbull is often described as timid and easily scared. Its strong jaw enables powerful biting moves, making... read more

It is exactly granny and bulldog mixed together. Plus it looks so plain.

21 Ekans

Real original. No one will ever figure this out.

22 Baltoy
23 Pineco

Wow, it's a pine cone. Just take the last 2 letters off the name and give it eyes, and now it's a Pokemon.

It's just a pinecone with eyes, so take the last 2 letters off of pinecone to make a Pokemon name!

24 Litten Litten, known in Japan as Nyabby, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
25 Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers.

There is nothing magical about Magikarp, and neither is there anything magical about Magikarp.
