Worst Designed Gen 4 Pokemon

Gen 4 is hated by many fans of the series, many of the designs within it were either bad looking, or uninspired, leading to some extremely questionable design choices.

The Top Ten

1 Lickilicky Lickilicky

Dang that pokemon is ugly! - PhoenixAura81

Lickitung from Gen 1 was a creative pokemon who had a great design, but then we get this weirdo, just NO! - darthvadern

This is such a dumb looking pokemon. Just take the slightly stupid look of Lickitung, and then make it fat, and you have Lickylicky, a lazy, terrible looking monstrosity. - kempokid

2 Purugly Purugly

It's purugly (pure ugly.) Get it? - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

The pur in the name appearently comes from the "purr" sound cats make, but let's be real, this pokemon is just pure ugly - darthvadern

It even mentions it in its name. This is just one seriously hideous cat - kempokid

3 Wormadam Wormadam

Another pokemon that just looks bad in every way. - kempokid

Did they even try to make a decent design? - AliciaMae

4 Bibarel Bibarel

It is just a beaver, nothing else. :/

Also, can you do worst designed 5, 6, and 7 next please? - DinoLover4242

It took a pokemon that while looking stupid, still looked funny, and took away the goofy look about it that made it so endearing, leaving us with this thing. - kempokid

5 Magmortar Magmortar

It's not too bad, apart from how fat he is, but the colors are really cool here - darthvadern

It just doesn't look good in any way, it doesn't give off the intimidating vibe that I'm assuming was trying to be created, as it just looks like a fat version of Magmar with an extremely ugly face. - kempokid

6 Cherubi

I personally like Cherubi's design, which gets better when it evolves. And trust me, this is nothing compared to the lazy designs of Muk, Electrode, and a couple more of the 151 Kanto panderers fail to notice. - Synchronocity

While people keep whining about gen 5 and it's habit of turning anything into a pokemon, people seem to ignore the fact that Cherubi is literally just 2 cherries with a face on each of them. - kempokid

7 Burmy Burmy

I actually think it's decent looking - darthvadern

While I like the idea of it changing its appearance depending on what area you're in, none of them look good at all. - kempokid

8 Ambipom Ambipom

I just really don't like its weird, deformed hands and the smile it has. It looks unpleasant in general. - kempokid

Creepy, just creepy - darthvadern

9 Kricketune Kricketune

That mustache ruined the design - darthvadern

I think I'd like this one a fair bit if not for the awful moustache that it has. - kempokid

10 Probopass Probopass

I don't get why this exists. I just don't. - Synchronocity

While this is easily one of the worst designs in the gen, I put it low because of how funny and ridiculous it looks. - kempokid

Wow, Mario really changed - cjWriter1997

I think it's one of the best designed in Gen 4 (ok, I barely know anything about Gen 4 but whatever), it looks hilarious - darthvadern

Yep, it's absolutely hilarious, but I still personally think it looks awful on every level other than that. - kempokid

The Contenders

11 Tangrowth Tangrowth

Tangela is better. Tangrowth is ugly. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

12 Bidoof Bidoof

Bidoof is just a chubby gopher, not an original Pokemon. - Synchronocity
