Worst Designed PokémonWhile the Pokémon franchise has had many well designed Pokémon, there are also Pokémon whose designs are boring, ugly, or uncreative. This is a list for those Pokémon. There are, of course, more Pokémon than the ones originally on the list who have bad designs, so feel free to submit them!
The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon
While the concept of a slime monster is interesting, it was not executed well with Muk. Muk is literally just a pile of sludge, and unlike Grimer, it doesn’t even have a pleasant expression on its face. - Pipluplover
She looks like a grape in a costume. Not trying to be racist :) - IceBearRules
I honestly don't think that the design has too much of a resemblance to certain racist elements, but dear lord, this thing is awful to look at. With all the flak Gardevoir gets for being "trampy", at least it's pretty cool. - Swellow
While there are many humanoid Pokémon I could put on this list, such as Mr.Mime, Sawk, and Throh, which have bad the designs, I chose Jynx for a number of reasons, most of which you’ve probably heard before. First off, its design bears resemblance to a certain horrible musician. Second, there’s its original design, which of course had racist implications. Thirdly, its just plain uncomfortable to look at, especially its 3-d model, which has it swaying in a weird, hypnotic pose. - Pipluplover
Krabby, just as its name suggests, is a crab. At least Kingler did something slightly interesting with the concept, but Krabby really didn’t. - Pipluplover
There’s a reason this Pokémon was voted the least popular of all time in Japan. My criticism here could apply to all of the elemental monkeys, but in my opinion, Simisear looks the stupidest. From its ugly oversized ears, to its annoying expression, to the fact that the elemental monkeys are basically the same thing with changes to match each monkey’s type and attribute of the whole “three monkeys” legend thing. - Pipluplover
This is basically just an owl. - DinoLover4242
It's so plushie and adorable though - Masochismismagic
Seel is literally a seal. That’s it. Like I’ve heard people say before, if you showed a drawing of Seel to someone, they probably wouldn’t be able to tell that it was a Pokémon. - Pipluplover
SEEL IS THE KING OV KYUTE
Why does everyone hate his design? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome
Hey I like this thing. - Swellow
It's cute though - Masochismismagic
I prefer lilpup, but this guy is also very cool - -Pikachu-
It has a disturbing appearance, its face looks dead-looking and its eyes look like it stares right past you. No wonder some kids had nightmares about Deoxys. - DinoLover4242
It's just a mushroom with an unpleasant face and stumpy legs, not very creative, despite evolving (somehow) into a kangaroo-like mushroom (which is very creative in comparison with this mushroom). - DinoLover4242
It's really cute and funny in my opinion. - Userguy44
Why dugtrio had hair!? Why!?
LOL, that's the funniest of the worst Pokémon design I've ever saw, I also peed/pooped my pants because of looking at this thing. - DinoLover4242
It reminds me of the heyayay he man video for some reason - Masochismismagic
It doesn't look like it fits in with other Pokémon of the franchise. It would fit better as being a One Piece character instead, if One Piece does have modern-styled gears. That's how out of place it looks. - DinoLover4242
How uncreative. Like me.
Klink is just a pair of two gears. The whole evolution line is just gears. Klink doesn’t even have a particularly pleasant expression. Its mouths are open in expressions of shock, and both of the have an x instead of one of their eye. - Pipluplover
Watch out castform,one day or the other those boobs are going to be licked by a porn actor
Why does it have boobs Is it going for the sexy weather girl look? - Masochismismagic
The breast on this thing makes it not appropriate for young children who are playing and/or watching Pokémon. - DinoLover4242
While Castform is a cute Pokémon and has its weather-based forms, that’s basically all that it’s got going for it. Not only does it stink in battle, its normal for has a boring color scheme, and the “questionable” grey things below its head. - Pipluplover
I think it's cute - Masochismismagic
Like some of the other Pokémon on this list, Mudbray has a pretty boring design. It’s just a donkey. - Pipluplover
Hoopa acts annoying such as using rings to transport things to cause mischief. With its behavior out of way, its appearance is literally just a rainbow earless gremlin. That is creative (Sarcasm). - DinoLover4242
I know you added this henry_danger_is_great. - Userguy44
One of the worst Pokemon ever!
come on it's so cute
That looks gross and unattractive to look at. It looks like a bald gorilla grew a pig's nose. - DinoLover4242
Aura Guardians Least Favorite pokemon - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
Freakyish-looking crustacean. - DinoLover4242
It's hideous - Masochismismagic
It's just a metallic Ditto with a nut on its head. Another bad rehash, folks. - KalloFox34
Gee, a blob of mercury with a nut for a head. How creative.
(That was sarcasm.) - Synchronocity
It doesn't look much different from the original Kangaskhan. Only the baby changed, this is such a lazy design. - DinoLover4242
That thing looks disgusting. - DinoLover4242
It’s a big pile of trash that someone puked on.
Mimikyu is completely original. It's not a dead Pikachu, it's a ghost pretending to be a Pikachu. It is my favorite pokemon of all time. I love it so much that I spent six hours of my life drawing a fully shaded one, and no one can tell me that I wasted those hours. Although it is terrifying, that's the whole point. And for anyone who claims the typing is off, imagine a Charmander dressed up as a Bulbasaur. That wouldn't change its typing to grass, it would still be a Charmander. It's supposed to look like a messed up Pikachu, as that's the whole point. It is trying to look like a Pikachu for love. In the Pokemon Sword description, it says that its disguise makes it creepier, showing that that is intentional.
It is creepy to look at and looks very uncreative. - DinoLover4242
It is a dead pikachu. I had nightmares about a dead pikachu
It's a dead Pikachu.
To haters of 90s Pokemon BOG OFF.
Oh and G/S/C is a good game.
So basically just a keychain? - DinoLover4242
I don't know what this thing is, but it looks very much like a deformed flounder. - DinoLover4242
Stunfisk is weird and stupid like Magikarp
It's just a slowpoke walking bipedally and having an unattractive shell with angry eyes on its tail. Not very creative at all. - DinoLover4242
Damn it's ugly! - Userguy44
Seriously. It looks like Nicole Waterson's Mother
It has a pretty boring design, since it is just a seagull. - DinoLover4242
Why does it exist?
Hands down the worst Generation I design, if not the worst in the entire series? What's so special about a Pokeball with a face?
Why is this species in the list? This is a popular Pokémon! - DinoLover4242
This thing looks very unattractive. - DinoLover4242
(Lickilicky)Looks like a baby with a WiFi birthmark
What is so bad about this cat's design? It doesn't look that bad to me, just in my opinion. - DinoLover4242
Purugly. Says enough about this ugly cat. - Userguy44
No! Spiritomb is cool. - Userguy44
It's just my opinion. Not bad stats and I like how it looks. But its okay if you don't like its design - Userguy44
Basically just a cougar with a Meowth's coloration and added pink/red gem on its forehead. - DinoLover4242
Noo he is not a badly designed pokemon you guys are lucky he is at the bottom and not at the top - -Pikachu-
Is this a troll? - Userguy44
Come on people! Don't list the Pokémon here just because it's overrated! It's cruel. Pikachus are not badly designed! - DinoLover4242
WHY IS THIS HERE! ITS DESIGN IS COOLLL - Lucariosabeast
It is basically just a Tyrannosaurus with white fur/feathers. Tyranitar is better executed, but Tyrantrum was not. - DinoLover4242
I know they're feathers, it's just an expression since they look like fur. I fixed this in case this bothered you.
Also, yeah, this animal looked way too much like the real Tyrannosaurus in comparison with Tyranitar. - DinoLover4242
It's just a bison and/or domestic cattle (maybe a hybrid of both) with three tails. How uncreative this is. - DinoLover4242
Why is this penguin-like bird on the list? It doesn't look that bad. - DinoLover4242
Basically just a Magnemite in different poses. - DinoLover4242
Basically just a living Ice cream with two faces? - DinoLover4242
Basically just a beaver. - DinoLover4242
That Pokemon doesn't look that bad. Why is it in this list? - DinoLover4242
Magmortar looks cute cool. What's wrong with his design? - Userguy44
Why? - Userguy44
Who posted this? This list is for the worst designed Pokémon, not overrated Pokémon! - DinoLover4242
Basically just a floating green church bell. - DinoLover4242
I have no idea why is this Pokémon even in the franchise. It looks like it is from a Digimon franchse. That looks totally out of place. - DinoLover4242
Boring, it is just a large skunk. - DinoLover4242
Yikes! That thing looks hideous to look at. In my opinion, it is the worst designed Pokémon arthropod. - DinoLover4242
Why this? This Pokémon doesn't look really bad. - DinoLover4242
What's so bad about this design? - DinoLover4242
Basically just a Pachycephalosaur dinosaur. - DinoLover4242
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 statue a mustache. - DinoLover4242
