Top Ten Worst Pokemon Designs

The Top Ten

1 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!

In the credits of the I Choose You movie it shows the Poke Balls and as a joke they put Voltorb in there as well. Which means, if Voltorb is an exploding Poke Ball, why not make Electrode an exploding Great Ball!? Yes, the shinies are references to Great Balls, but why not change Voltorb to black (Ultra Ball) and Electrode to purple (Master Ball)? Oh well. Just a thought. Other than that Voltorb/Electrode is atrocious design-wise.

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.

2 Jynx Jynx is created game freak & Nintendo. It was first introduced in Pokemon red, green (blue outside Japan), and yellow version. It could be based on a lot of different things (not Nikki as she was not popular when Pokemon started)... for example ganguro, a trend for woman in Japan in the 1990’s (hence more.

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.

Lol I never new Nicky managing was a Pokemon!

3 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

Poke Ball + eyes = Voltorb! Brilliant!

What I love this design laugh out loud

4 Klefki

There's potential for a good design here. Maybe you could make it angel-based and have the "ring" be a halo above it's head, or use the keys as fingers for the monster? Anyhow, it had potential, but it comes out really half-baked in the end.

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

5 Rattata Rattata, known in Japan as Ratta, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A rat colored purple. enough said.

6 Probopass Probopass, known in Japan as Dainose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

Oh god kill him whit fire, FAST!

7 Grimer

Don’t worry grimmer I still love ya

8 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 Pidgey Pidgey, known in Japan as Poppo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's not lazy; its just annoying - HunterBoy

10 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.

Just add 2 more digletts to a diglett and it evolved!

The Contenders

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

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!

12 Ekans

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

13 Luvdisc Luvdisc, known in Japan as Lovecus, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

Luvdisc should have evolved into Alomomola.

14 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

Alphabet Soup is more like it all it need to alphabet soup is well soup

15 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

Bad design. Good typing

16 Exeggcute Exeggcute, known in Japan as Tamatama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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 dragons everywhere! This thing looks like a deformed dinosaur that was left in the sun near expired ice cream.

18 Garbodor Garbodor, known in Japan as Dustdas, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise introduced in Generation V. It is categorized as the Trash Heap Pokémon.

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!

Wish I could recycle it

19 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

Defend ice cream. hate garbage and all other things 5th gen. messed up

20 Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

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.

STOP GUYS We're talking here about design not strong weak overrated

21 Bruxish

It’s bad

22 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime, known in Japan as Barrierd, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Mr Mime can be a female... it's MR Mime, not Mrs Mime. I once had a female Mr Mime so I just nicknamed it Mrs Mime so it made sense.

Mr mime is a very bad Pokemon and has a very bad name

I love Mr. Mime! No matter what you say I will always love him!

I DETEST Mr. Mime. It's feet are weird, it has odd joints and it's's face is LITERAL NIGHTMARE FUEL. And it's 3D sprite will haunt me forever. I don't really like mimes that much, and Mr. Mime just makes it worse. I compare it to a festering wound you cannot get rid of. It's always there, pantomiming walls with its face that says 'I will murder you'. When I encounter one, I send out a Pokèmon and just let them destroy the creepy thing. And this is coming from the person who likes Garbodor and Stunfisk. (Sorry for bad grammar.)

23 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". more.

This isn't a Pokemon lol but she still is stupid - Lunala

I met this Pokemon in battle, it was so creepy. It sang to me and my jinx died of jealousy. The end.

Bad Pokemon (talking about Jinx)

Terribly designed

24 Mega Slowbro

Mega slowbro does exist and it's dum because slowbro gets eaten alive only with its head sticking out poor slowbro

OH GOD I AGREE WITH THIS! Seriously, Mega Slowbro looks very stupid. And I hate it with a HUGE passion, and the flame of my HATE for this ICE CREAM CONE, will not go away, no matter how good the stats are.

He always looks like he's saying,"God, help me."

It also looks like its being eaten alive, literally - ac60189

25 Dedenne Dedenne, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

No offense to you people that think this guy is cute but... I find him creepy!

Dedenne is actually quite cute. DO NOT INSULT. Has anyone noticed in the anime it actually says something that sounds like " banana"? Cute

Dedenne day is september 23 catch or use it

"Lets make a more ugly version of Pikachu, that will be awesome! "

26 Patrat

He's got pink eye I just feel sorry for him. He can't eat nuts

...Those eyes...they are pure evil...

Patrat is cute! You can't make me hate patrat! He will always be one of my favourites!

27 Tangrowth

It's Ugly and Uncreative, why tangrowth's design looks like a bunch of blue noodles?! Tangela's design is still good.. - Cubea

Its basically a tangela that hasn't groomed itself yet

28 Klinklang

If you though kleki is bad then look a this bunch of gears.

If you thought voltorb was bad, here are three magnetmites stuck together.
I can go all day with this.

Designer 1:" Let's make a Pokemon that is a gear.
Designer 2:" That's a great idea! We will call it Klink. The next evolution could be Klang and the final could be called Klinklang!
Designer 3:" You guys! That's a dumb idea. I'll tell the boss!
Designer boss:" Your ideas are great! Let's do it!
A few hours later...
Teenager1:" What! There's a gear Pokemon?
Teenager 2 : " That is really DUMB
Everyone in the world:" Remove the gear Pokemon!
Police:" Designer 1,2 and boss, your are UNDER AREST!
The end

29 Magnemite
30 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Whoever put it here you suck

To be completely honest, Arceus looks like a floating white horse with a chandelier stuck in the middle of its body. - Persian

Who put it here!

Agreed! If you look closely at his "belt" thingy, you can see that it's actually pulled pretty tight around the Pokémon "god's" waist. He is overrated, and actually not that good in-game, unless you use swords dance with Extreme speed, and even then he can easily be knocked out in a hit or two.

31 Amoongus

It looks like the big mushroom in PVZ

This Pokemon does not suck! Is very creative if you think about it! At least it is better than shroomish, shroomish is basically JUST a mushroom at least Amoongus is a pokeball mushroom that is creative

It's all about the Poké Ball designs. Why do they have the designs of a human-made invention? Maybe Silph Co. copied the designs off the Amoonguss, I'm not sure.

32 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 is cute and I hate cute but jolteon is not cute so I put pikachu on the list - JolteonIsAwesome

Why do I think Pikachu has the worst design?

Because he's not a Raichu. Whenever I see a Pikachu, I am overcome by an urge to chuck a Thunderstone at its face, and turn it into a stronger and better Pokemon. Raichu is better. The end. - DemonSpider253

Pikachu is Pokémon, Pikachu is from when Pokémon was popular - 90s.


33 Seel

Sure just get a seal put a horn on its head, and replace the A with an E and you just created Seel!

Designer 1: hey guys I have an idea! Lets have a seal Pokemon with a horn!
Designer 2: great idea! but what should we name it!?
Designer 1: hm it's a seal so lets replace the a with an e!
Designer 2: WOAH!

34 Aegislash Aegislash is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Steel/Ghost Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Doublade, and the final evolve form of Honedge. Classified as the Royal Sword Pokemon, it is said to detect innate qualities of leadership. According to legend, anyone more.

It may look bad but at least it's actually pretty good ingame.

I like it, but the disign is not creative, besides it starts as a single sword evolves, now is two different swords oh wait and evolves again, it's a single sword with a shield HOW DOES THYAT EVEN MAKE SENSE?!?

Well so many dong make sense for example how did kadabra get spoons and no one ever complained - Masterofal

It's a downgrade. At least doblade had two swords

Seriously, a sword with a ' shield. Come ON!

I don't know about you but I think it looks damn awesome! It's so good in game!

35 Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why is it one this list, it really creative, just the name is weird

Eevee is not cute, in fact, it's ugly, unoriginal and uncreative.

I think it's really cute!

Eevee is a piece of crap thst shouod be exploded to desth and eat poop

36 Sylveon Sylveon, known in Japan as Nymphia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Who put this here? Sylveon is actually a really creative design with only pink, white, and blue for its main colors

Fairy type was a dumb idea

Sylveon is too girly


37 Emboar Emboar, known in Japan as Enbuoh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Dreadful. Making a final evolution bipedal unless it has wings, generally looks terrible.

38 Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

OH GOD! I remember that time on Diamond when I first encountered it, it hee-hawed at me and I cried.


Those who shall hate on this plump mouse Pokemon will be sacrificed
jk but Bidoof is awesome lel

39 Espeon Espeon, known in Japan as Eifie, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Sure it has a gem on its forehead. SO what? Its got the most unoriginal design since Voltorb. Take a cat, colour it purple, stretch its ears out, slap a ruby on its forehead. Your done. Blah.

Actually, espeon's design is based on a mythical goblin. learn about things before you bash them please

Espeon is ugly and lazy just a fox that is purple with a gem on its forehead

Looks like blaze

Hah! Espeon looks like cat + fox + alien + goblin. Results= so BAAAD - JolteonIsAwesome

40 Trubbish

Its literally a piece of trash with a face. - Lunala

Trubbish is really cute!

Best design ever(not) it's garbage now muck sucks too enough said

41 Carbink Carbink the Jewel Pokémon, number 703 and known in Japan as Melecie, is a creature in the Japan role playing game Pokémon.

It's just a rock with a tiny head and a huge body and rockruff fur without rocks. Also tiny crystals on its body and one huge one on its head and diamond - shaped ears. The sizes are sooo mixed up. Yeah, this thing looks stupid. STUPID!

42 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

HEY! Greninja is an extremely good Pokemon! He has moderately good stats, a unique design, an awesome typing which he only shares with 5 other Pokemon, and that ''scarf'' is pink because it's his tongue!

Its just a stupid frog, it a terrible clone of blastoise, bad ability, why you want to be diff typing idiot, its scarf is pink, which is dumb

43 Cresselia Cresselia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cresselia looks like a misformed sauropod anyway even my sister hate it - JolteonIsAwesome

How dare you hate on my fave legendary

44 Leafeon Leafeon, known in Japan as Leafia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
