Top Ten Worst Pokemon Designs


The Top Ten

1 Electrode Electrode

Designer 1: Let's make an evolution of Voltorb. Let's call it Electrode.
Designer 2: Let's be "creative"!
Designer 1: I think we should make it bigger and put a different face on it!
Designer 2: No, that is too easy. Why don't we flip it over too?
Designer 1: Wow, that looks like a wonderful new Pokemon!

I agree that Electrode's design is disgraceful. They could have done millions of designs for an evolution of Voltorb but they just had to go with that bigger upside-down Voltorb.

I don't think I've ever had an Electrode in any of my games, just because Voltorb is lazy enough.

How lazy...

2 Voltorb Voltorb

All right we have 148 Pokemon so far what should we do next? I know let's get a poke ball, stick eyes on it and have it evolve into a upside down poke ball with eyes

There is a rumor that a poke ball possessed by a haunter created voltorb - trainerd6

What I love this design laugh out loud

BORING! - PokemonGOSucks

3 Jynx Jynx

Silly, Silly Nintendo. Nicki Minaj isn't a Pokemon.

You can polish a turd, but all you will have is a shiny turd.

Oh my god. It has breasts. And yes, Jynx is VERY racist.

Humanoid potatoes? - Pokemonfan10

4 Rattata Rattata

A rat colored purple. enough said.

5 Klefki Klefki

Oh no! It's a floating key chain. The only redeeming feature for me is that it scares dragons.

Its cute! Plus Pokemon won't last forever with the cool designs

How creative can you get

Designer 1: Lets make another fairy type Pokemon.
Designer 2: I got a brilliant idea! It should be a-
Designer 3: *Fidgets with key chain*
Designer 2: What is he doing?
Designer 1: Screw your idea, a key chain Pokemon is probably the best Pokemon idea ever! - SuperAlienGamer

6 Grimer Grimer
7 Probopass Probopass

This Pokemon is so bad looking I had to vote for him. The first time I ever battled a Probopass in game I burst into giggles. Seriously my friend and I had a good laugh over this guy. If nothing else at least his design amuses me.

Probopass is ugly, It's a copy of Mario because it has a red hat and a moustache like Mario!

Yuck. Just yuck. This thing is disgusting. I can't look at it with a straight face... it's just the design. I don't know what else to say about it. It's just... ugly!

This thing is honestly one of the creepiest pokemon. for some reason it just unnerves me. - taishisohma

8 Geodude Geodude

It is a rock with a face. Literally almost every rock type Pokemon is a rock in some way, but Geodude is literally a Rock with a face. And it's face isn't original because it looks just like Ghastly and Voltorb's face.

This is where Balotelli's meme come from - JolteonIsAwesome

9 Dugtrio Dugtrio

Isn't just 3 diglets buddies who came to each other to hang out and then got stuck.

Even electrode and voltrob aren't that bad

Diglett was much better.

Designer 1:Hey guys ugh I think we should make Diglett evolve.
Designert 2:We were thinking the same thing
Designer 4.I have a idea,let's get this cool colossal mole coming out of the ground with Sandslash and Magmar-ish feet
Satoru Iwata: No, let's make 3 digletts come together and pour some String Shot down them to trap them together
All Designers: Fabulous Idea let's put it in the game so MandJTvPokevids,Aura Guardian,and JWittz disapointed

10 Muk Muk

I don't care what you say Muk is still one of my favourite Pokemon!

'Yawn' the design is really lazy. Looks like, well, a giant blob of purple diarrhea.

It's literally decomposing feces. How kid friendly and adorable! Even Mega Kangaskhan had more thought put into it!

'Yawn' the design is so lazy. It looks like, well, a giant blob oh purple diarrhea!

The Contenders

11 Pidgey Pidgey
12 Ekans Ekans

Design isn't too bad but the name "Ekans" is "snake" spelt backwards. - Lunala

13 Unown Unown Unown is a Psychic type Pokémon from the Johto region, taking on the form of letters and punctuation. It is often considered the weakest Pokémon, with low stats and access to only one move, Hidden Power (which can be learnt by nearly every Pokémon anyway)

Designer 1: I have an idea! Let's make one species with 28 forms!
Designer 2: Great idea! Let's make the only move it learns hidden power, normal type of course.
Designer 1: Holy **** this is awesome! Oh, and each form should be part of the alphabet!
Designer 2: and let's not forget... brace yourself... the exclamation point and question mark!
Designer 1: Holy POOP! !
Designer 2: oh, oh, oh! It doesn't end there, this Pokemon should not evolve!
Designer 1: *faints*
Designer 2: This. Will give us. So. Much. Money.

It is a letter.

This is a terrible Pokemon, it wastes a whole room in Pokemon heart and gold and its really annoying when you have to catch them to get awards

YOU DECIDE! - Pokemonfan10

14 Luvdisc Luvdisc

It looks like a heart that hasn't eaten for 200 years

Remember back when gen 5 came out and aLOLamola came out? That would've been great for BOTH of them, and possibly, Luvdisc wouldn't be looked at as a bad Pokemon. But no. a-lol-amola ISN'T the evolution. It's just another pointless water Pokemon they through in there to get rid of space. Gen 5, in my case, is just one of the worst generations for Pokemon design. SERIOUSLY! You have an ice cream cone, a bloodshot eyed rat, dumb looking monkeys, chandeliers, and... a mountain of trash? Also, the names black and white just make it seem ever more worse. BLACK and WHITE? Ugh... dull, ugly colors- BLECH! What I'm saying is that that Alooolamola should get the record for the most confusing Pokemon because it looked like luvdisc.

Just make a love heart and put eyes on it and slightly tilt it and it's a Pokemon. It even has weak stats. Luvdisc is also known as the weakest water type Pokemon

I am given this to my girlfriend 2 hours later she hates it because it is weak waah

15 Stunfisk Stunfisk

I don't care what you say! Stunfisk will always be one of my favourite Pokemon!

It Looks like a fish got run over!

Poor bird got ran over and turned into this it should at least evolve - Mewingmew

Now THAT'S what I call a couch potato.
Heck, it even has the INTERNET sign on it! - Pokemonfan10

16 Exeggcute Exeggcute

Designer 1: What should we add as a new Pokemon
Designer 2: Don't know
Designer 3: I wanna eat an egg
Designer 3: SIX eggs
All Designers together: BRILLIANT!

6 eggs is an amazing idea get this off here (Sarcasm)

I'm hungry. I want a EGG

10/10 literally just a pile of eggs - ColdTurkey

17 Druddigon Druddigon

Druddigon isn't a bad Dragon-type design! It looks really cool and ferocious, not to mention frightening. It's probably the Dragon-type that looks most like a dragon. Dragons are supposed to be scary, violent, and angry; and Druddigon has all of those traits. Its red head? GameFreak probably gave it such a head in order to make it more frightening, like a gargoyle. Anyways, it's a creative Pokémon that doesn't deserve to be on this list!

I wouldn't be surprised if one of Game Freak's designers had a kid who threw this design as a drawing they made in elementary school and begged to have it put in the game.

I like a good amount of gen 5 Pokemon but some are just plain STUPID. Hey its an ice cream cone! WE GONNA GET MONEY FOR THIS VERY CREATIVE IDEA

An insult to all Dragon-Types. It looks like a crayon drawing that was run over, then left in the sun.

18 Garbodor Garbodor

Why!?! Who wants a garbage Pokemon -_-

You cannot make me hate Garbodor! Trubbish is cute, and I have a really strong Garbodor card. Also, I thing Garbodor is funny.

I'm just glad he's not as high up on this list as Muk. Come on, don't hate on Garbodor when they made a literal POOP Pokemon!

It's just garbage... - PokemonGOSucks

19 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This shouldn't be on the list... The only reason people think it is strong because its design and anime. If it is bad in design, no one would have liked it

His design is good but he is overrated

I like how when people make fun of some of the admittedly generic Pokemon designs from Pokemon Blue & Red like Seel and Pidgey, no one will dare bring up the STRAIGHT UP DRAGON design.

What why is char here

20 Vanilluxe

Its not an ice cream cone, Its an icicle with snow on top. The pokedex doesn't say, so, its not. And why do you say this is a bad design in one of the newer games when the older ones were crappier? Vanilluxe will always be one of my favourite Pokemon and you cannot make me hate her

Sure enough, it's got good offensive properties, but it's design... Just NO!

Ok vanillas design sucks but gen 5 is awesome all gens are

It's a snow cone it's a poke beset on food how thought full game freak (sarcasdt)
