Grown Man Lists the 20 WORST Pokemon Designs | Gnoggin
We all have our favorite Pokemon... we also all have our LEAST favorites. In this video I list 20 Pokemon designs that I, PERSONALLY, don't like. I would say they are the 20 worst designs, TO ME, with my specific, personal tastes. It's fine to disagree, that's what makes humans unique. And shouldn't that be celebrated?

      @Luffydestroyer I agree a lot, besides the fact HE HAS TO WAIT TILL THE END OF THE MAIN GAME TO EVOLVE, FOR A UNDER 500 BST! but it’s design isn’t that bad

    I personally love Hariyama for its incredible idle animation in Pokémon Colosseum. It’s doing constant sumo stomps and it feels so weighty and powerful.

    You hate Snubull :( I used to not care for him (especially not his evolution) but opening up Pokémon packs, I realized he’s kind of a cute Pokémon and I actually like how interesting the design is. I’m sad you don’t like one of my new favorites but hey, that’s just how it is.

    Oh, what? I thought #15 was like how kid you thought it was. Huh? Now I think it’s super ugly. Edit: oh my, the cinderace is SO WRONG, sorry.

    Okay dont hate on keldeo movie kyurem was awesome

  • Snow_Kitten

    I'm probably only disagreeing with cinderace because it is my starter and the first pokemon I got to level 100 AND is the mvp of the battle with leon

  • Loopine

    Oh boy, people are gonna start blasting you with why your opinion is “wrong and you didn’t get the point of its design” or how “other pokemon are more deserving of its position”. Im preparing for this comments section to become Twitter.

    chewtle kinda redeems itself in my mind because it's so intensely stupid-looking that it loops back around to being hysterical. i mean i still don't like it, but i can laugh at it and i feel that zeraora commentary, i love its design but it's such a nothing pokemon. previous mythicals would travel through time and bring back eggs from the future, or wake from millennia of sleep long enough to grant wishes, and then zeraora's entire lore is "yellow furry punch good." there are common pokemon from way back in kanto with more compelling dex entries

    When I heard Drizzile I disliked the video by the way, here my top ten least favorite Pokémon: 10: Ditto, only because breeding them with the freaking oval charm they won’t make eggs 9: Simipour, It’s what Ron said 8: Darumaka, the Pokédex entry! HOW DUMB! 7:Scorbunny, people chose it over Sobs 6:Hippowdon, the forms confuse me 5:Tauros ... idk 4: Throh It’s design is stupidly made 3:Sudowoodo, It’s such a cheater 2: Eldagoss, Barf on this eldagoss 1: CINDERACE, I shall kill this thing Sorry Pyro, I am one of your subscribers

    I hate Himonchan too because I watched something about Pokémon and one of them said it just look like a potato wearing a dress and boxing gloves

  • Scion Wangu

    Aipom evolving to have another tail hand is a good idea, but, ambipom is just terrible. I mean if it was a regular aipom with two tail hands it was good probably because it evolves learning double hit, but ambipom's face and hair and tail tips are gross.

    Replace one of these with Florges. I loved Flabebé and Floette, they’re both very charming and cutesy Pokémon. I evolved my first Floette into a Florges and was appalled and confused and disgusted by it! How does a small, flower-holding Floette evolve into a bouquet with an ugly face!? It just does not look like Floette’s evolution at all to me.

    7:35 I've always been confused by the Timburr line origin, so one day I decided to search what their design inspiration was and found out that they really weren't modeled after clowns and strongmen carnies. Their design was actually inspired by japanese Yankee delinquents and construction workers, which might seem like a random combination of ideas, but back in the 70s and 80s it was common for delinquents to end up working at construction sites, since most of them never finished school, they really didn't had that many job options to choose from. You can see the Yankee inspiration in Timburr with its Regent Pompadour and Gurdurr's "Afro" is meant to be a Punch perm, both hairstyles where very popular among japanese delinquents. Conkeldurr's "hairstyle" is a Chonmage (topknot used by warriors), and its japanese name Roubushin has "bushin" in it, which can be translated to Warlord, so its design draws inspiration from construction workers/warriors instead of Yankees like the other two. There's also the old man side of the design with the concrete pillars being walking canes and the veins looking like a back brace. Their bodies also resemble the uniform used by construction workers in Japan, with their legs resembling baggy pants called tobi trousers and their two toed feet being similar to jika-tabi shoes. Now the red nose in Gurdurr and Conkeldurr...I have no idea, but my theory is that it might be based on a red drunkard nose(?). At least it makes sense to me with Timburr being the youngest one, having its black nose turn into red once it evolves to Gurdurr, which can be considered the young adult stage, while Conkeldurr is the elder final stage. PMD Gates makes kind of a reference to this with a Gurdurr getting "drunk" after drinking too much """berry juice""" at a party and in Pokemon Amie, for some reason, Gurdurr is one of the few Pokemon to have a special sleeping animation and it really makes it look like a drunk guy sleeping while standing up, lmao. But who knows, maybe it was intentional or maybe I'm just grasping at straws since there hasn't been a real explanation for the red noses. TL;DR The Timburr line was inspired by japanese Yankee delinquents and construction workers, not clowns. Also excuse my english, I'm trying my best :]

    Magmortar is my second favorite Pokémon lol. I just love it’s movepool and it’s design. Arm cannons are awesome and it looks like a fire demon or an oni. As for drizzle, it’s wearing gloves because the Pokédex says that it secretes a liquid to throw water balloons. You can see this in one of it’s animations. I actually think it’s a pretty cool Pokémon.

    Shout out most of the gen 8 fossil Pokémon being terrible (Arctovish is only tolerable by only being a mediocre looking fish with a large head, and a blue on blue color scheme). I know the whole point is that you’re mashing different fossils together so the results won’t look complete or anything, but just because the intent is to create freakish abominations at a conceptual level, doesn’t excuse the results from continuing to be freakish abominations. Dracovish, Dracozolt and Arctizolt make me want to die just by looking at them, and most likely they wish for death as well, products of unethical science that they are. Edit: Nevemind, Arctovish is also in the abomination category! It’s head is almost literally upside down, with its mouth on top of its head.

  • Omasunner

    in my opinion, poipole and naganadel are the worst looking pokemon only because they look like pokemon. they don't have as much of an otherworldly design compared to the rest. On their own, poipole is... fine... and naganadel looks pretty cool, but they look too much like something that could be from the world of pokemon.

    As of now, I have absolutely zero dislike towards any pokemon designs. I like them all. I will admit that two that have unsettled me in the past are Garbodor and Runerigus. Runerigus was creepy because of the 'cursed moving painting' concept, and as a little kid Garbodor's appearance disgusted me with its double man buns and weird noodle protrusions sticking out of its weird long tube arm. Luckily, I'm past that. Also, Carkoal is awesome.

    There is no Dunsparce. I am disappointed. Although there have been a lot of Pokemon since then and some of the more complex designs have gone... Crabominable.

    My least favorite UB is Poipole, _because it looks like a normal Pokemon._ Naganadel is cool, and Poipole would be much better if Naganadel evolved into it, thus inverting the norm of size increasing when evolution happens.

    I feel SO VALIDATED to see Magmortar and Rhyperior on your list. They are absolutley my two least favorite Pokemon - some original designs might be worse, but these are terrible AND they ruined two really cool Pokemon. (For some reason I never realized how goofy Magmar looked until Magmortar came into existence.) I guess the one upside is that Rhydon can utilize Eviolite.

    I want to mention the Klink family. Not sure which one, it's a toss-up between Klang and Klinklang, because at least Klink laid the groundwork for cooler ideas, but I'm not sure which is the problematic one. Klang killed the potential of a unity being by turning one of its face gears into a much more boring bigger gear, then Klinklang did next to nothing to alter itself; its size is just the same as before, and its general build is pretty much identical, but I suppose the spikes are cool and the step into the third dimension is cool. But this is not the way you handle an inanimate object concept.

    Huh! His and my worst 20 lists have almost no overlap. Most of his worst 20 I find totally inoffensive. Mine would include the incredibly boring Uxie/Azelph/Mesprit trio and the overdesigned Dialga/Palkia, Reshiram/Zekrom pairs.

  • Zanman

    Unpopular opinion: Rhyperior is *leagues* better than Rhydon
