Top 10 Worst Pokemon Names


The Top Ten

1 Seel

When I was young, I was only able to get 'fake' Pokemon cards. They messed up everywhere, calling the Pokemon what they looked like, like 'sheep' or 'monkey' etc. The only one they actually got right was seel, because they must have accidentally misspelled it. What a coincidence. If anything, it proves how unoriginal a name it is.

Seal with an e instead of the a? Marvelous! - UltimateTrubbishHater1

Creator1: hey I'm going to draw a seal then we will name it.
Creator2: sounds good
Creator1: I'm done now what does that look like to you?
Creator2: it looks like a seal. So what about seel as its name. Creator1: nobody will ever find out how we got that name.
Creator2: nope. What a great work day do you want to go to the bar a have celebrate?
Creator1: Hell ya.
Let's go.

Just put an a instead of two s's its useless to rename it like THAT

2 Klinklang Klinklang

Hey I have an idea! Let's take a final evolved Pokemon and name it after its 2 former Pokemon.

That's not a Pokemon name. It's the words to the Lavender Town song.

Creator: quick we need a technological Pokemon.
Someone: hey this gear fell out of your machine I think...
Creator: A gear Pokemon! The name can is Klinklang. Lets call it a day!

That's not a name, it's a note in the Lavender town song

Klink Klang Klinklang

4 Bidoof Bidoof

Correction: I believe its pronounced BiDOOFUS. Or you could say BiDOOFENSHMIRTZ or however that guy's name is spelled. It's just a dumb name anyway.

What makes it more stupider is the "doof" part of its name. Stupid, eh? - UltimateTrubbishHater1

Its name probably just comes from a misspelled beaver+tooth or possibly doofus. But it looks like bidet.

I think: The name makes the pokemon sound useless and stupid. - Lunala

6 Durant Durant

It's not named after a basketball player. It's a combination of "Durable" and "ant". The Kevin Durant thing is just a coincidence.

Name creator: I love basketball! Other person: Oh, and since he's an ant, how bout call him Durant. Name creator: Great idea, boss! You know that I have always been waiting to insult basketball legend Kevin Durant in a form of a Pokemon.

How can you name a pokemon after a city and a person? How bout make a llama pokemon named Obama and call it clever? Dumb! - UltimateTrubbishHater1

Hey! Kevin, Can we make a Pokémon after you - Game Freak. Kevin- Sure.

7 Ho-oh Ho-oh

So many people miss pronounce it and say ho-ho. And whenever you say it, people giggle and go "he said hoe. " It's so stupid. Love this pokemon though.

Great pokemon, terrible name. - UltimateTrubbishHater1

Ho-Oh and Lugia are major aspects of my childhood. They represented power and beauty and friendship to me, and if you've ever played anything of Gold, Silver, Crystal or HG/SS, you'd know what I mean. I am very sad and disappointed that today's people make fun of the old day's Pokemon. I liked it better back then, when we had no X and Y or Black and White. Instead, we had Gold. We had Silver. Now, we have less original Pokemon designs, and if I got to pick between Gold version or X version, I would pick Gold. Johto lives on in me.

What did you call me? - SeaDrag0nX

Luvdisc is named after the Discus fish, which are shaped like hearts... Actually a pretty clever name.

To true it's a love heart with eyes and a beak I don't love this Pokemon

It's not THAT bad

"I have a GREAT idea for a Pokemon! It's great at THROWING things! Let's name it "Throw! " No, wait--let's change one letter so that it sounds the same but still looks like a name! THROH! "

Just Throh this name in the garbage can.

Laughed when I heard this name.

I need to Throh my Sawks in the hamper!

Creator: Oh My Gosh I have a great idea for a pokemon name! Let's take what the pokemon is (rubbish, if you haven't picked up what I'm saying yet) and stick a T in front of it! Trubbish! How original! And for its evolution, we'll take what it is(garbage) and put a synonym for smell (odor) and combine it! Garbodor! I'm AMAZING at this!

Just throw it in the trash. - disturbedbomb

14 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)

Don't you guys want to UnOwn this Pokemon? Get it?! - RebelGamer

Do you even know how to spell "sounds"?

This name is sucks, here is how to say it: un-KNOWN, the name is stupid, it is also stupid it self, it's just stupid symbols.

The only thing unknown about Unown is why you'd want to have one. - TrueBlueHeroes

15 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals more.

It took me longer to be able to pronounce this name than it did to learn how to pronounce my friend's 18 letter Russian last name.

I swear gamefreak is trying to teach us the alphabet. Like really. Just WHY gamefreak I mean legendary pokemon based on letters? Haven't you accomplished that with unown? Yet now you create puns by shoving a y in front of its name because its a pokemon y exclusive..

HARD TO PRONOUNCE without rolling my tongue into a pretzel. Ugh. - Lunala

20 Dunsparce

He should be #1. Doesn't dunsparce sound stupid? Durant does too but dunsparce still is worse in battling, and names! Next time, try voting for dunsparce

When I was little I couldn't even pronounce it

Dunsparce = Dunce. Dunce = Dumb person. Therefore, Dunsparce = Dumb Person - Thorite_Gem

Lololol Dun and sparce HOW DO PERNONS SPARCE?
