Worst Designed Gen 7 Pokemonkempokid Gen 7 is my personal pick for the worst of all the gens, as there is a much higher number of Pokemon that I just find to look outright awful. Many of the designs are either plain stupid, or extremely uninspired, often a mix of both.
The Top Ten
Heres how game freak came up with this... thing
The staff was at the beach and they saw some people making sand castles and then they decided to hit a little weed and thought about sand castles. Back to the office, someone came in with some more weed and he was willing to share so they decided to turn that castle they saw into a pokemon.
I saw him in real life - Zalgiris
Come on, it's unique. Not poorly designed at all. - Solacress
I really have no idea who thought that making a sandcastle pokemon was a good idea. It is quite possibly my least favourite design if pokemon from any generation, as it manages to have such a bad concept, and look all around terrible. - kempokidV 5 Comments
I find this to look laughably awful, and I don't know what else to say other than that, nothing has come close to looking as stupid as this, and this is after considering Probopass. - kempokid
It looks more like it would be a stand from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure than an actual Pokemon. - PerfectImpulseX
What is that? Is that some mosquito transformer? - LightningStrike
Really weird looking - darthvadernV 2 Comments
While I find it to look fairly bad in general, the thing that makes me really hate it is how awkwardly designed its face looks. - kempokid
That face though - darthvadern
I have SEVERAL questions. - TheWorstAccountEver
This design looks terrible in my opinion. Crabrawler is okay, but I don't like how Crabominable looks.V 1 Comment
While the colour choices are fairly nice, I just find its lips and eyes to make it look unsightly, as well as its teeth. - kempokid
Is this even exist? I never find on game.
It looks farly lice and colorful, dissagree here - darthvadern
What IS THAT?! seriously NINTENDO?! THIS?! - GirlWarriorXV 2 Comments
Well, I find it to look about as stupid as its name is on the nose. This is just another one of those concepts that I can't really see properly working in a way that would produce anything of decent quality. - kempokid
I can't even tell what it's suppose to be - darthvadern
I feel like game freak is mocking trump. - myusernameisthis
Looks like an evil mongoose with shark teeth and with yellow hairs on its body. - DinoLover4242
While its design is mostly fine, having a generally nice look to it while also being fairly simple, its mouth looks disproportionate to the rest of its face, and leaves it looking quite stupid. - kempokid
Why that angry face? - darthvadernV 1 Comment
The concept is cool, but it looks too alien to be considered a Pokemon. It does resemble a guardian a little, though. - Synchronocity
Heres how GameFreak came up with whatever the hell this thing is
So one of the workers were on break and thinking of new pokemon. He was playing jenga and decided to make it a pokemon
Very dull looking in general, simply reminding me of a more artificial looking version of the various rock pokemon from the series. - kempokid
Is this suppose to like a fortress pokemon? - darthvadernV 3 Comments
Pokemon like this show how even the smallest of details can drastically change how aesthetically pleasing something is. In this case, the simple addition of a middle tooth makes what could be a cool looking pokemon end up looking quite bad. - kempokid
I agree. The second tooth is overkill and doesn't make it as cute as it should be. - Synchronocity
Okay, trolls. I'll bite. How is a Gen 1 'mon the worst Gen 7 representative? - Synchronocity
PIKACHU IS GEN 1!
Why Is Pikachu on the list?! Please take this off! - DinoLover4242
Pikachu is not a Gen 7 Pokemon! - PerfectImpulseXV 1 Comment
While I find the shape of its head to look incredibly stupid, I do find it quite funny how the pokedex refers to it as a highly dangerous pokemon, allowing me to somewhat ignore the terrible design of it, as it is quite funny with that bit of context. - kempokid
I actually like this Pokemon's design. - PerfectImpulseX
Too big legs - darthvadern
He just rips off Tony the Tiger and John Cena! >: (
Why does it exist?
While the design is terrible as is, they didn't even bother to make an evolution so it has no real purpose other than to be an insult to the franchise.
What kind of name is this
Looks cute to me. - PerfectImpulseXV 2 Comments
While the pokemon itself looks pretty good, it is also incredibly derivative of Pikachu, and as such, is very lazily designed due to how similar it is. - kempokid
Too small arms - darthvadern
6th ugliest?! This thing is nowhere near as ugly as Stakataka which is at 10th.
What - Not_A_Weeaboo
My least favorite out of all of the regional birds so far in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX
It's just an angry toucan with a few red feathers on its tail. How lazy is that? - PerfectImpulseX
WHY? Both the shiny version and normal version look really cool, and some idiot thought of putting this beloved Pokemon on here. - IceFoxPlayz
Somebody please get this off the list!
It's my personal favorite Pokemon of Gen 7. - PerfectImpulseX
Bottom of the barrel design.
Who thought this was a good idea?
Yuck. Almost wish I didn't vote for Stakataka, because this abomination is even worse! Kill it with fire. - Synchronocity
Like an uglier version of Yungoos, but can stand upright, has an uglier face and sharp spikes. - DinoLover4242
It looks like trump. - LuciaTheLugia
It was a muchstace
I actually think Comfey is okay. It looks a little like an Alolan Flabebe. - Synchronocity
One of only 2 gen 7 pre-USUM mons I dislike (the other being Bruxish) - IronFist13
Overall, a Mythical version of Ditto that looks like the writers fused together all of the traits from Electric and Steel and stuck them on the poor creature. And the result looks dorky. - Synchronocity
Not gen 7, he's gen 8 - myusernameisthis
Sorry. I wasn't aware of the placement (especially since the writers shoehorned him into the anime). But Meltan is still kinda a bad design. - Synchronocity
A lot of people say it's the worst starter. I agree
Oricorio is horrible because of its moveset. Period.
Arceus is from Generation 4! - PerfectImpulseX
At least it's great in battle though. - PerfectImpulseX
It's just some really sharp origami shape
Death by papercuts. - Synchronocity
