Top Ten Worst Original Pokemon Sprites

The original pokemon games had very strange sprites. However, some have very cool sprites, but some were just... bad.

The Top Ten

1 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew looked so ugly, compared to the cute Mew we all know in the movie. The original Mew sprite gave me night mares! It almost looks like the tail is coming out of his head! And you can barely see Mew's arms!

Oh my god! It looked like a horrid doodle of Mew some 2-year old would do!

It's head is too big and it just looks... Bad.

2 Exeggutor Exeggutor

Exeggutor may have looked funny, but just stupid. Google it, and you will see what I mean. Also, his smile is just so annoying and his (eggs? ) are so big they are almost touching the floor.

Lack of creativity went into this one. - Swellow

Exeggutor's Face: "I'm going to get you trolololololololol"

If true, look good asss

3 Hitmonchan Hitmonchan

Togekiss didn't exist then.

Hey, do not mess with that Pokemon, dude

If you look closely at the original Hitmonchan sprite, you will notice that it looks like a Togekiss watching a Doduo poop!

4 Golbat Golbat

Five words. His. Tongue. Is. Too. Long.

Me when I saw the sprite for the first time: 'WHAT IS THAT THING! Charizard, kill it with fire! ' (Good job, Charizard.)
It is just...horrendous. Nightmare fuel on steroids.



5 Koffing Koffing

Koffing looked so scary and he looks like he has problems. Plus, the skull is on his forehead instead of his belly.

Koffing should be in a mental asylum. JUST LOOK AT IT. It's face says, "I'm gonna kill you, hee hee hee..."

6 Moltres Moltres Moltres, known in Japan as Fire, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Moltres looked awful! Moltres looked like a Turkey on fire!

7 Wigglytuff Wigglytuff

One eye is bigger than the other and Wigglytuff just looked plain stupid.

8 Kakuna Kakuna

Why does Kakuna have arms? Plus, he looks like a zombie because of how his arms are out infront of him.

9 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu used to be rare and people were happy when they got one, but now in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y you can find them very easily in the wild. Pikachu isn't as special anymore... Pikachu is so common now that I caught a shiny one.

His original sprite was fat

What. Pikachu was so loveable in the old R/B/Y days, and then they started basing the sprites off the anime and Pikachu's new sprite went anorexic.

10 Gastly Gastly Gaslty, known in Japan as Ghos, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Some people might think it's cool, but I think that it looks so creepy. Gastly's original sprite was basically some dots scattered everywhere and a face. But hey, Gastly evolves into Haunter who had an awesome original sprite. Why didn't they do the same thing they did with haunter?!

The Contenders

12 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo was alright, but he looked like he was trying to poop.
