Worst Designed Gen 5 Pokemon

Gen 5 is definitely where people began to talk about ideas running low in terms of what Pokemon to add, and while I personally find the generation to be quite good in general, it's impossible to deny that certain Pokemon really did look absolutely terrible.

The Top Ten

1 Garbodor Garbodor Garbodor, known in Japan as Dustdas, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise introduced in Generation V. It is categorized as the Trash Heap Pokémon.

Quite possibly the most infamous of all the poorly designed gen 5 pokemon, Garbodor looks absolutely abysmal, and I personally have no idea who thought that it was a good idea to have a literal pile of garbage as a pokemon. Undoubtedly one of the worst looking of them all. - kempokid

Despite being very ugly and poorly designed, I'd take this over Muk any day - IronFist13

And the worst designed gen 5 pokemon is...

He looks so awful! - darthvadern

2 Vanilluxe Vanilluxe

I just find this one to look so uninspired, having a pokemon that looks like ice cream in the first place is a bad idea, but then having it be a three part evolution where each looks stupider than the previous was such a bad decision. - kempokid

Hey! Vanilluxe's my favorite Ice-type Pokemon of all time! But I can sorta see why people hate it and its pre-evolutions though. - PerfectImpulseX

Boring - darthvadern

3 Trubbish

What I said about Garbodor applies to Trubbish as well, albeit to a slightly lesser extent, due to it not being quite as much of an eyesore. - kempokid

Awful as well - darthvadern

4 Watchog

The eyes on this thing just look straight up unsettling and really ruin a design that was already just average. - kempokid

Looks like its on drugs

5 Vullaby Vullaby

It looks like it has half of an egg for a diaper

Looks like its wearing a diaper - Criz

I just think that it looks incredibly unpleasant in general, with a sickly pink colouration to its head being the thing that I find the most unappealing aspect of it. - kempokid

He looks ver yugly - darthvadern

6 Klink Klink

While pokemon being fashioned after objects is something I'm often fine with, I still have my limits, and pokemon such as klink definitely go past it. It's such a lazy design to simply stick a face onto a couple of cogs. - kempokid

It's just two gears, enough said! - PerfectImpulseX

Seriously, is this pokemon just two cogs? - darthvadern

7 Stunfisk Stunfisk

While I don't hate the design of this as much as a lot of other people do, I still can't deny the fact that it does look really bad. The colours of it are extremely unappealing, and it looks quite bad in general. - kempokid

A flat fish, enough said - darthvadern

8 Lampent

While I find Litwick to look kinda cute, and for Chandelure to look really cool, I can't really describe this as anything other than stupid looking. - kempokid

9 Basculin Basculin

Magikarp is better

He's pretty cool in my opinion, but why is he called basculin? Sounds like masculine, wait can this pokemon only be male? - darthvadern

Just another ugly pokemon in general. It kinda looks like an angry old man. - kempokid

10 Tympole Tympole

Looks like whenever you tell him a secret he will spoil it in front of everyone - darthvadern

I just find the face it has to look somewhat uncanny and poorly thought out. - kempokid


The Contenders

11 Cryogonal Cryogonal

Crygonal's design is extremely confusing. I get that the artists were trying to capture the look of a snowflake, but it feels like they tried too hard and too lazily at the same time. The only saving grace of Crygonal is its 'personality', which is expressed when it uses its chains to tie up an opponent. But other than that, it's blander than Vanillish. - Synchronocity

Come on! It has a awesome design

These designs hurt my eyes

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

'' damn this pig is so op but lame desgined ''
'' haven't u had this op aren't? ''

14 Kyurem Kyurem Kyurem, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It looks very clunky and more like a damaged stone statue of a dragon than an actual living dragon itself. Also, its two alternate forms, White Kyurem, and Black Kyurem, look over designed and convoluted. - Tag365

15 Alomomola Alomomola

It's an upgraded Luvdisc. Woo hoo. - Synchronocity

The Luvdisc evolution that's not a Luvdisc evolution - IronFist13

16 Keldeo Keldeo Keldeo, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's basically a mlp reject.

17 Druddigon Druddigon

Someone was building a Pokemon from Lego and couldn't find the right head, so just jammed a red block on there.
