Hmm... going by generation...

Gen1
Charmeleon > Charizard
- The wing joints look... I don't know weak, when you think how much mass they have to lift up.
Nidorino/a > Nidoking/queen
- Quadrupedal ftw
Kadabra > Alakazam
- Did someone cut off it's tail? ;_;
Dragonair > Dragonite
- Cliché, but the body type change bothers me.

Gen2
Quilava > Typhlosion
- I always try to keep it as Quilava untill it falls back from the rest of the team. The flames just look cooler imo.
Flaaffy > Ampharos
- A fluffy sheepish cotton animals turns into a skinny dinosaur lizard...

Gen3
Lairon > Aggron
- I just seem to dislike the dinosaur bipedal-tailed form. Hmm...
Spheal > Sealeo
- A ball! *rolls around with it*

Gen4
Electabuzz > Electivire
- It looks like something from Monsters Inc movie and not in the good way. The 'staches bother me the most.
Yanma > Yanmega
- My first ever Yanma was from a GTS trade and it was shiny and blue, then I looked at the shiny Yanmega and proceeded to never use it so it wouldn't accidentally evolve.

Gen5
Dewott > Samurott
- The final form seashell horn makes me tilt my head everytime. *cracks neck*
Venipede > Whirlipede
- I get the coccoon idea, but not the readon for dual antennaes...
Petilil > Lilligant
- While I adore the Lilligant's appearance, Petilil is just adorable and I feel sad always when I encounter one and end up having to defeat it for grind purposes.
Sandile > Krokorok
- The bipedal form and long neck look forced... Though I love Krookodile. O.o
Joltik > Galvantula
- *spazzes out from the cutesy and possible electric shock*
Litwick > Lampent
- The shiny light blue Litwick that appeared in my first ever White playthrough... the squeal I made during Spanish class because of it. Lampent seems a bit half-way design, when you look at Chandelure (whom I would worship and adore... and end up dying because of it).

Squirtle > Wartortle The reason I say this is because Squirtle looks really cute and little, but Wartortle and Blastiose look weird and Ash has an unevolved Squirtle

Trubbish > Garbordor Yeah, um Garbordor has all this icky grey stuff on him...


Those 2 are the only ones I can think of right now...

Only two come to mind that represent Pokemon I actually like:
Voltorb > Electrode because (a) "Voltorb" is a cooler name, and (b) red over white looks a lot more attractive than white over red for some reason.

Glameow > Purugly because Purugly is just so, well, ugly. Not to mention overweight and ungraceful.

The following represent Pokemon I don't particularly care for, but they make the list because their evolved form is even uglier.
Pichu > Pikachu
Tangela > Tangrowth
Lickitung > Lickilicky

I prefer Poliwhirl over Poliwrath and Politoed because in my opinion it's design is just so much better.

I found that the new evolutions introduced in Generation 4 were very polarizing for me. Either I really liked them, or as shown in my list, I much preferred their pre-evolutions (Magneton > Magnezone, Lickitung > Lickilicky, Tangela > Tangrowth, Togetic > Togekiss, Aipom > Ambipom, Nosepass > Probopass).

I'd like to think I'm equal opportunity. Even if a design seems weird in the next evolutionary step, there's probably a reason for it. And overall, I don't really care how they look as long as their designs aren't stupid overcomplicated.

That said, I can think of three:

Venusaur - I don't really care so much that it became an old, tired dinosaur of sorts so much that it just looks like it's really really flat. Like it was run over by a car a few times. That, and the appearance in age difference really does seem unbalanced. Bulbasaur and Ivysaur go from being youthful and energetic to burnt out and aged over the course of one (or two) evolutions. Compare this to every other starter (though Blastoise does look like a hardened older man, too).

Nidoking - The red/green promo art of Nidoking that Sugimori drew? Hardcore. The way he looks now? I could hug him. Nidorino, at least, always looks like he means business. And this is coming from a guy who likes huggable Pokemon (and huggable Nidorinos. ). But there's a certain appeal to Nidorino that's just been consistent, even if he's been softened over the years as well.

Rhyperior (I think) - Ugh. This guy and quite a few other evolutions of 1st gen Pokemon in gen 4 are why the phrase "leave well enough alone" exists in the first place. Designs that are complex for the sake of being complex are not effective. It's even more perplexing considering the franchise itself follows a very "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" model. I'd rather they continue the rest of the series from here on out creating new Pokemon, like the 5th generation, than tampering with what they've got. Even if that means adding a mere 20 per generation due to creative bankruptcy.

The only one I can think of is Buizel. I love Floatzel as well, just still prefer Buizel's design a bit better, and its voice too.

Treecko > Grovyle
I love Treecko. I think they're super cute, yet tough enough to battle. With both evolved forms, they lose their cuteness and I just don't like their general appearance. They do have some nice moves, though; I can't deny that.

Pikachu > Raichu
For many of the reasons already listed. Pikachu is cute and Raichu kind of looks... well, it looks like much thought wasn't put into him. xD How can a Pokemon go from being so cute to being... eh, Raichu doesn't even look tough. They look like they're trying so hard to be as cute as Pikachu that they just totally screwed up.

Chinchou>Lanturn
Chinchou's my favorite pokemon. I was disappointed with what its evolution ended up like.
Dewott>Samurott
It has been said already, but why does it need to look like that?
Wartotle>Blastoise.
Wartotle seemed so cute until it turned into Blastoise...
Snorunt>Glalie
Don't get me wrong. I like Frosslass, but Glalie scares me.
Lampent>Chandelure
I just like Lampent's design better.

Definitely like Haunter more than Gengar. Way better design in my opinion. And also Electabuzz over Electivire

The main one for me is Seedot. Seedot is so cute and one of my favourite Pokémon, while I despise Shiftry and it is my least favourite Pokémon.

Zubat > Golbat
Golbat has always looked really goofy to me, and I never liked him
Porygon2 > Porygon-Z
Same reason as Porygon-Z, though I already liked Porygon2's design
Omanyte > Omastar
Omastar's mouth and tentacles just make him look absurd
Dragonair > Dragonite
Another case like the ones above, Dragonite just looks really derpy to me as compared to Dragonair's elegant body
Ledyba > Ledian
Ledyba is really cute, ok? And then he turns into Ledian, who looks like an alien Power Ranger
Whismur > Loudred
There is something about big Pokemon mouths that just ruin it for me
Electrike > Manectric
I just really can't stand Manectric's color scheme. It might be because I live in Ohio

These are all the ones that really stand out for me, I'm sure there are more.

Oshawatt and Dewott >> Samurott

Vulipix >> Ninetails
Growlithe >> Arcanine
