21 Abra Abra Abra is a character from Pokemon. It started out in Pokemon Red & Green (Blue version for outside Japan) version, and was one of the first psychic type Pokemon you could run into. It sleeps for 18 hours a day and teleports if it senses danger. Its only move it can learn by level up is teleport (which more.

Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam. Are you kidding me.

Abra sounds like A Bra.

It sleeps for 18 hours a day and uses psychic powers while sleeping - Ridiculous!

Handa up I got a spoon!

22 Garbodor Garbodor

I amell a really bad garbage odor. Wait, let's make a Pokemon like that! I will be a sack of trash with two arms, and we'll name it something like garbage odor. Or better, Garbodor! This is the most original Pokemon we've made in a long time!

And this is why Game Freak is running out of ideas. - Thorite_Gem

Let's start by its terrible design: It's A PEICE OF GARBAGE WITH ARMS! Then, if you get past all of that, it has the dumbest name ever. Garbobor. Really? Come on Game freak, it's already a terrible idea for a Pokemon, why did you give it an unoriginal and uncreative name?

23 Grumpig Grumpig

Well, I can see where they got the idea. A grumpy pig, which is what it looks and acts like...


24 Alomomola Alomomola

Laugh out loud it's a palindrome!

It was between this and exeggcute. I bet when they're doing the dub, whoever's voicing Ash trips up on the line like five million times, and when they finally get it right, whoever voices the Pokémon screws it up. Like seriously! Try saying it five- no, let's make it ONE time. And about exeggcute, it sounds like something Dr. Eggman would say. - Pikachulover1

HOW Do you say this?
Oh my gosh

Hey, it is a palindrome!

25 Ninetales Ninetales

Actually, Ninetales is a mythical creature. It's a fox with nine tails, which is exactly what the Pokemon is.

Hey everyone, let's start naming new species after the amount of limbs they have

I love ninetails and vulpix but the name is lame

I love my alolan Ninetales gx

But the name is a bit unoriginal but not as bad as "bidoof" and "Seel" - Lunala

26 Nosepass Nosepass

Its a nose for the love of god.

Nose pass. Nose Pass gas. Pokemon jokes.

Game Freak brings them on themselves. - Thorite_Gem

Haha Nose pass more like No Pass...

You nose pass

27 Type: Null Type: Null

I actually like this name. - Lunala

Its trash anyways

This guy is krap

At first I thought this was a prototype name.
Or a fan name for a Pokémon revealed but didn't reveal an official name.
But Sun & Moon came and we got THIS!

28 Conkeldurr Conkeldurr

Conkeldurr: 50% concrete, 50% elder, 100% terrible name

Look, gamefreak. You make a name, you need to make it have a resemblance to something. Conkeldurr is just a bunch of scrambled letters

It is not spelled correctly.

29 Lickylicky

Man finds a monster, man finds a two dogs licking kids, man says "Let's name it LickyLicky! " to boss, boss says "Yes! "

As if Lickytung wasn't ridiculous enough, now we get a Pokemon with an innuendo for its name. Someone should get the guy responsible for this name a medal, as it isn't common for games companies to get this kind of stuff past the radar. every time I read the name, I am reminded of Ash Pedreiro saying:"Ay girl..."

Two times the same word is NOT a Pokemon name.

What kind of a name is this?

30 Sawk Sawk

Creator 1: Let's make a blue rip off of Throh.
Creator 2: Great IDEA!
Creator 1: Let's name him SAWK.
Creator 2: Sure!

Laugh out loud at first my cousin had no Idea what Pokemon was I asked him what he thought sawk looked like and he took off his shoes..

I just want to Throh him in the Sawk drawer.

Throh your sawks in the laundry!

31 Talonflame Talonflame

This is a dumb name, instead of a clever word combination, they probably decide it's name like this:
Guy 1: We need another fire and bird name. What should it be?
Guy 2: GREAT IDEA! Birds have talons, and fire has flames! TALONFLAME!
Guy 1: GENIUS!
I do like the Warriors but this is a Pokemon, not a cat from a book. - RoBot214

Why isn't this number one? It's not even a pun, it's probably just a name that one of the developers stole from some furry

What is wrong with you people Talonflame shouldn't be on this list PUT Diggserby on this list and plus whoever posted this should be sent to double hockey stick

Cool pokemon but the name sounds like something a Warior cat fan would nickname their Moltres. - Lunala

33 Xerneas Xerneas Xerneas is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a legendary Fairy type Pokemon, and the mascot of Pokemon X. Classified as the Life Pokemon, Xerneas has the ability to give eternal life, which occurs when the horns on its head shine in seven lights. When its life more.

The name is weird but the Pokemon is AWESOME you can get x and just name your xerneas

It is pronounced Zer-KNEE-us. - RiverClanRocks

Yveltal? How is that better?

It's said like this: Xer-ne-as. Problem solved. To bad I got Yveltal instead of Xerneas but eh.

34 Arcanine Arcanine

Actually it's a mixture of "arcane" and "canine", which is pretty clever in my opinion

Arcanine is awesome, and his name is awesome too! Why is he on here? He's actually one of my few favorites from Gen I.

Are canine? (Sorry it makes no sense)

Ha ha gamefreak. It's a police dog so lets call it RK9. A terrible name to match an equally terrible Pokemon

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

I'm gonna squirtle all over your jigglypuff.

36 Delibird Delibird

I always like of a deli that you eat at when I hear this. Not putting the right image in my mind. - Thorite_Gem

SO STUPID and its a bad pokemon too

Every time I hear this name, I think of "delicatessen", not "delivery". Not quite the right idea, GameFreak.

Present worst move ever and it is also in mt Everest wow delibird your deli meat.

Krabby... NOW I know why that Krabby pinched Ash in the series! - Thorite_Gem

This is the meat they use in Krabby Patties. - Lunala
