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

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

He looks so awful! - darthvadern

*A Wild Garbodor Appeared! * EW!

*Person Used Minigun! *

*Garbodor died! *

...Forget about what I said. This list is right unlike the others. Who would like a GARBAGE Pokémon? HELL NO! No one. It also sucks when it comes to popularity. LIKE DUDE. It's so ugly. Weak. Got nothing. This is a joke, I like all Pokémon, so don't be sad, Garbodor!


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

Seriously, is this pokemon just two cogs? - darthvadern

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

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

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

These designs hurt my eyes
