        Voltorb, Magnemite and Grimer as the standard horrible designs.
        Trubbish, Foongus, Stunfisk and Maractus.

        And surprisingly this generation only showed me one design that I wasn't really fond of: Bunnelby.

        But this generation introduced less Pokémons anyways, so yeah.

            Stunfisk had a poor design, and it's only reinforced in Gen 6 where you can't see the thing at all.

            I'm not really a huge fan of Feebas' design, to be honest. It's got deep, dark spots surrounding both of its eyes, making it look a little bad. It has tons of holes on its body, which, to me, are quite scary. Also, its mouth is too big for its body size. If it was smaller, then it definitely would have looked better. It's kind of ironic how a small and disfigured Pokémon like this evolves into such a beautiful-looking Milotic, isn't it? xD"

            Another Pokémon that I don't like is Weezing. Koffing is quite an ugly duckling (in my opinion, anyway), and this Pokémon's got two of those stuck onto the same body. In an instant, Weezing can produce a ton of poisonous gas. And if you ever got anywhere near them, you may end up causing a lot of health damage to yourself. d:

              I agree with everything except that Weezing/Koffing thing. :O No one mocks my little Toxic Puffball without getting a scolding! xD Just kidding, but the first gen had no faults in any designs, they are all perfect!

                Some Pokémon look a bit awkward and that may be attributed towards their anatomy. These include Relicanth (too thin), Gulpin (too loose) and Serperior (lacks appropriate limbs). I feel Pokémon like those could do better with their appropriate problems solved. I'm not too picky about the specific parts of specific Pokémon much (and there's another thread which discusses that) so it's always the anatomy that bothers me.

                  Wailord bothers me a bit. I guess it's a bit fun with a pokémon larger than Steelix/Onix, but it's just too large to be of any use outside of an ocean. The games don't take that reality into account, thankfully xD

                  It's obvious that Pokemon designs got a little more intricate as the generations went on, so I can give a pass to Pokemon like Ditto, Voltorb, Gastly and Grimer as being overly simplistic compared to newer ones. There should be no excuses for newer Pokemon though, which is why I really don't like Roggenrola. It looks like it was created by a kindergartner who just started learning about shapes, drew something, showed it to their parents, and it was turned into a Pokemon.

                  Heck, as a guy with little to no artistic talent, I drew this picture of one in 45 seconds or so, and with some shading, it'd look no different than the actual thing.

                    Trivial fact, but in Pokémon Rangers - Shadows of Almia we automatically record Wailord's data in the Browser (sort of a Pokédex for rangers) after saving his totally cute child and the Browser states that Wailord is too large to be captured. What a relief, I don't think I could've looped over it given the size of the DS XD

                    Ah yes, this is also true. It could have done better as a four legged creature resembling Boldore IMO. Thankfully they get creative with Roggenrola's evolutions with the stalactite concept as limbs.

                      Stunfish and Dunsparce are bad designed pokemon.
                      Jirachi, and Celebi are good designed pokemon in my opinion.

                      Garbodor, Stunfisk and Druddigon. They're ugly, but Druddigon has its merits.

                      I'm not a fan of inanimate object-Pokemon (that aren't Ghost-types), they just confuse the heck out of me.

                      I mean, fine, Pumpkaboo is a possessed pumpkin. That's still weird, but at least it kind of attempts to explain things.

                      But what's going on with Klefki or Voltorb? I get that the keys aren't really a part of Klefki, it's just "holding on to them", but it's still literally a keychain Pokemon.

                      Garbodor mostly, for being a literal pile of trash and ruining the adorable Trubbish for me. Aside from that, most 1st Gen Pokemon. They didn't really have much diversity in looks compared to later generations, and there wasn't so many "cute" Pokemon then. I don't find Stunfisk ugly though, especially after seeing Cilan's Stunfisk in the anime.

                        The reason I believe the first generation lacked creativity is because they were just beginning, so they just tweaked various animals and made them pokemon. Then of course there's Grimer and Gastly and all them, but whatever. Then as the series progressed they began to think more outside the box as they had to keep coming up with more ideas.

                        Anyway, the Pokemon I dislike are simply because of their appearances. Purugly, Gothitelle, Garbordor, Jynx, Chandelure (never liked the whole chandelier thing to begin with, much less the stalkerish aspect), and Bibarel.

                        One pokemon a design that I really like is Scizors. Not exactly sure why though.

                          I do not like the design of Grimer as its just a pile toxic waste.

                            Those eyeball hands...

                            I also hate Jynx with a passion. It's literally just some ugly woman thing. Smoochum is so cute in comparison, I dunno why they had to make that link.

                            like why even

                              I agree with the first bit, but the second however, is... heart breaking. xD

                                Scrafty and Scraggy are my all time most hated pokemon. Just annoying Chickens who can't stop their trousers from falling down.

                                Also hate Jinx (What the point in fact why is it ice type), Mr Mine (Just NO),Snubull/Granbull (Hideous),Ludiocolo (Pointless), Exploud(Stupid), Bidoof (I need not explain my self) and Trubbish and Garbodor (Its a pile of rubbish).

                                  Most of the gen 6 pokemon look awful. I could barely make a full party out of the pokemon I like from this generation.

                                  Gen 4 gave a lot of bad looking evolutions to pokemon from previous gens that should have been left alone. In my opinion Lickilicky, Yanmega, Probopass, Magmortor & Magnezone all look awful. I do like the designs of Weavile, Rhyperior and Electrivire though.

                                    Are you planning to look me straight in the eye and tell me that Voltorb was perfect?

                                    Anyways, the most eyesore inducing Pokemon to exist is a two-way tie between the fat stack of garbage known as Garbodor and the ever-so-racist black stereotype/Nikki Minaj lookalike, Jinx.

                                      Gen. 5's Vullaby in particular is my premier ugly-looking Pokemon, as it looks like it hasn't hatched fully from it's egg. I think it's too weird allowing half-hatched Pokemon to enter battlefields. It's also weird that it takes such a long time for them to evolve to the more realistic-looking Mandibuzz...

                                        I really dislike Zygarde.. I'm not sure what it is, but it could do with just a bit more design. On the other hand, I love Sylveon and Florges. Their designs really blew me away when I first saw them.
