Worst Designed Gen 7 Pokemon

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

1 Palossand

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.

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. - kempokid

It's just a sand castle! - LightningStrike

2 Buzzwole Buzzwole is a dual-type Bug/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-02 Absorption.

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 - darthvadern

3 Crabominable

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.

4 Bruxish

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?! - GirlWarriorX

5 Charjabug

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

6 Yungoos

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

I feel like game freak is mocking trump. - myusernameisthis

Why that angry face? - darthvadern

7 Stakataka

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? - darthvadern

8 Mareanie

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

9 Pikachu

Okay, trolls. I'll bite. How is a Gen 1 'mon the worst Gen 7 representative? - Synchronocity

Why Is Pikachu on the list?! Please take this off! - DinoLover4242

Pikachu is not a Gen 7 Pokemon! - PerfectImpulseX


10 Stufful Stufful is a small, bear Pokémon with a pink head. It is often misspelled as "Stuffuulu". It evolves into Bewear, another bear-like Pokémon, but Bewear can squash someone's spine by hugging.

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

The Contenders

11 Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He just rips off Tony the Tiger and John Cena! >: (

Fire pisser?

12 Pyukumuku

Pokemon has always had modern art versions but its going more and more.

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

13 Togedemaru Togedemaru is a spherical, rodent-like Pokémon. Most of its front is white, while its back is primarily gray. It has black eyes, a short pointed snout with a black nose, and a circular, yellow marking on each cheek. Scattered across its back are yellow and brown triangular markings, which this Pokémon ...read more.

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

14 Litten Litten, known in Japan as Nyabby, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

6th ugliest?! This thing is nowhere near as ugly as Stakataka which is at 10th.

What - Not_A_Weeaboo

15 Toucannon

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

16 Mimikyu Mimikyu is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Ghost and Fairy type whose ability, disguise, allows it to take one hit without taking damage

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

17 Dhelmise Dhelmise is a Dual Type Ghost/Grass Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It not know to evolve into or from any other Pokemon.

Who thought this was a good idea?

Bottom of the barrel design.

18 Gumshoos

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

19 Alolan Arcanine
20 Torracat
21 Alolan Golem

Looks Bad

It was a muchstace

22 Sandygast
23 Comfey

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

24 Meltan

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

25 Alolan Meowth
26 Popplio Popplio, known in Japan as Ashimari, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A lot of people say it's the worst starter. I agree

27 Oricorio

Oricorio is horrible because of its moveset. Period.

28 Steenee
29 Minior
30 Wishiwashi
31 Arceus

Arceus is from Generation 4! - PerfectImpulseX

32 Alolan Diglett
33 Kartana Kartana is a dual-type Grass/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-04 Blade.

At least it's great in battle though. - PerfectImpulseX

It's just some really sharp origami shape

Death by papercuts. - Synchronocity

34 Alolan Dugtrio

It's just dugtrio heads given funny-looking blonde wigs. - DinoLover4242

35 Alolan Persian
