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


Dang that pokemon is ugly! - PhoenixAura81

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

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


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

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

Wormadam Wormadam, known in Japan as Minomadam, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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


It is just a beaver, nothing else. :/ - 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


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


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


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


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


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

That mustache ruined the design - darthvadern

Probopass Probopass, known in Japan as Dainose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

That Pokémon looks really stupid-looking. It looks like an Easter Island head statue that was painted blue and red by some painter and someone decided to give that Easter Island head a mustache. - DinoLover4242

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

The Contenders


Is this a troll post? This is not too penguin-looking (having yellow crests on is head), and it's blue in color. - DinoLover4242

Skuntank Skuntank (Japanese: スカタンク Skutank) is a dual-type Poison/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation IV of the Pokémon series. It is categorized as the Skunk Pokémon and it evolves from Stunky. Skuntank is known for its noxious fluid which smells dreadful. It can spray this fluid over 160 feet, ...read more.

This thing has a boring design, since it is just a skunk. - DinoLover4242


This thing is very uncreative, since it is just a large Tangela. - DinoLover4242

Tangela is better. Tangrowth is ugly. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

Yanmega Yanmega, known in Japanese as Megayanma is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It evolves from Yanma when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power.

It's just a bulky dragonfly.
