Pokemon are known for being cute creatures but of course a few slip through the net. Japanese consumers have been polled asking them which Pokemon they believe to be the ugliest amongst the batch. 500 people were surveyed, including 250 men and 250 women, to find out which of the critters appeals to them the least. Here’s the results!
8/10 straight outta gen 1. No ice cones or gears in sight. Says a lot.
Grimer and Muk are cool, though. I don’t get the hate.
WAIT, WTF IS SKRELP DOING THERE?
I’LL FUCK YOU UP
Skrelp? Oh yeah. That’s right. It’s the ugly version of Horsea & it’s evolutions. Well it’s ugly compared to them, anyway. When not compared to them, it’s just bland & plain looking so not exactly ugly.
Much better concept than Horsea. I’m seeing a slight bias against poison types here.
Hm. You’re right about the bias part. Then again, getting poisoned in games is probably the most annoying thing you can have happen to yourself in a video game, so I honestly can’t blame people for having a slight bias for poison types.
Yeah, they really need to rework that. It’s one of those JRPG traits that have become more of an annoyance than anything at this point. At least it doesn’t hurt your Pokémon while walking around anymore.
mfw no Purugly
Weezing’s my favorite. :(
>Jynx at number 4
Japan is insane. All the dumbest, ugliest Pokemin came AFTER Gen 1. I get Grimer and Muk … but seriously … They must just Hate Gen 1 for some reason.
But Grimmer is adorable… and how is Garbador not on this list!?
I thought the exact same thing :]. I think Grimer/Muk are two of the cutest Pokemon.
This list makes me sick, no first generation Pokemon should be on that list!
SHAME! No trash bag or vanilla cone Pokemon exist in my world.

That something that’s on your mind often lately chief?
-||I have 4 minds and none have anything remotely resembling balls of any kind||-
Ride on, ride on. Just confusing when you ask such oddball questions.
I’ll give you Garbodor but Vanilluxe, Vanillish, & Vanillite are far from ugly. Then again, you are what people call a genwunner: a hater of anything beyond the first gen of Pokemon. *shrug* But this is just another example of us having different opinions, like with religion, so I’ll leave you to it.
:).I’m definitely not that made up word you people like to use when someone prefers creativity verses what I feel is largely rehashing of material. I don’t hate anything, everyone has personal preferences, even for things like Pokemon. But enough about labels, you are correct on our vast differences. I’m assuming you’re a girl, so its easy to understand you calling them cute, being a boy, I don’t take such things into consideration when catching my Pokes.
Well to be honest, it’s not like the original 151 Pokemon are exactly original creations themselves since they are all based on real life things that existed long before Pokemon did. So Gen I really isn’t that different from the gens that follow. And no. I’m not a girl. Finding things cute or adorable is not gender exclusive to females.
Normally it wouldn’t fall far from a general truth, so no harm I’m sure. And, I personally don’t see it that way at all, the original 151 Pokemon are the start of something that took the world by storm, they most definitely are original creation’s no matter what they’re based from and deserving of such an honor. At least, that’s my view on it, to each our own right.
Also, Garbodor is a freaky looking thing. I’d agree there.
Let’s be honest, nobody would want to touch Jynx with a fifteen foot people.
And where the fuck is Garbodor?
Happy to see that even the Japanese know that Gen 1 was the worst.
Everyone complainning they didn’t mention de ice-cream, grabage, gear etc… They aren’t ugly, that’s why, they were asked to say which they dislike. And como on, just look at those faces http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/3/39/584Vanilluxe.png/250px-584Vanilluxe.png
I actually meant to say that the first gen had some of the worst designs of the series. Just saying this to clarify it, since I can see how it could be interpreted the opposite way.
I think the Regi-brothers are pretty ugly. Genesect looks badass, but it also kind of ugly.
I’ll give them Muk but Grimer? Jynx is far more uglier than Grimer so switch their places up in this list & you got a more accurate list of ugliest Pokemon.

Please leave? :(
Oh ok next time I see a Japanese person I’m going to fight em. (jk)
But seriously though why Is Garbodor not on this list??
If you asked someone who was only familiar with the newer games what they thought of Voltorb, I can bet they’d say “It’s just a Poke Ball!”
Justice for Jynx. I make love with it every night and she (he?) is beautiful.
