Top 10 Worst Pokemon Designs

The Pokemon Company, at this point in time, have released a total of sixth generations of Pokemon; the total number of Pokemon now exceeds 700. That's quite a bit more than the original 151.

The Pokemon Company have struck gold with numerous Pokemon: Pikachu, Charizard, Rayquaza, etc. The list goes on and on.

However, there has been quite a few Pokemon that have left Gamers wondering. Most of these Pokemon have a lackluster design, which came from either laziness or stupidity. No one's perfect, and that includes the Pokemon Company.

In this article, we will rank the Top Ten Worst Pokemon Designs and the reason behind their ranking.

Please remember that this article only includes Pokemon up through the sixth generation, and these rankings are solely based upon personal opinion.

The data in this article may become outdated with future released generations. You just never know what horrible Pokemon design the Pokemon Company will release next.

Want to voice how you feel about these rankings? Feel free to express your thoughts in the comment section below. Tell who you think should be ranked higher or lower, or who you think should have made the list. We'd love to see your Top Ten!

Before we officially begin, let's take a look at some Pokemon that were able to avoid this Worst Top Ten List:

1) Unown - Not much thought went into the Unown(s). I mean seriously... They're just the noodles in alphabet soup. I still don't know how they even made it into a Pokemon Movie. Baffling, if you ask me. Luckily for them, there has been worse designs.

2) Tangrowth - Not too much imagination went into this Pokemon. It's a bigger version of Tangela. That's it. I know not all Pokemon change much in appearance from evolution, but you would have thought that the creators would have at least put a little amount of effort into this.

3) Dugtrio - Apparently putting three Digletts together gives you a Dugtrio. I thought Pokemon were suppose to evolve, not group together. The creators should have put a little more science into this Pokemon, and a little less math.

4) Klefki - This Pokemon is a simple set of keys. Yeah... Not the most creative design. What's next? A Pokemon in the form of a Car or Door? Let's just be thankful these keys are pretty decent in battle, because they're seriously lacking in design.

Now that we got those Pokemon out of the way, let's get to the real best... The best of the worse, that is.


Our search for the worst Pokemon design begins with Muk.

It's hard to say a first generation Pokemon should be on this list, especially with the nostalgia attached to it. But Muk definitely needs to be mentioned. Besides, it's actually not the only first generation Pokemon in these rankings. I guess not all things were great with the original Pokemon.

Muk is nothing more than toxic sludge that somehow came to life; who started out as a smaller sludge-toxic thing (Grimer). How that's possible is besides me.

Somehow this sludge stays connected, and somehow is able to move. Oh... And it can breed with other Pokemon. Yeah... Still don't know how that works... At least where Muk is concerned.

It's a real shame to know that Muk came from the first generation, since that set of Pokemon had soooooo many great Pokemon designs. It, along with its Pre-Evolution Grimer, are prime examples to sheer laziness. Seriously. Let's put a face on some sludge and call it a day.

Oh well... 3-4 Pokemon out of 151 isn't too bad.
