Pokémon have been around for decades, capturing the hearts of millions with their cute and cool designs.
From Pikachu’s adorable face to Charizard’s fierce look, Pokémon design generally aims to be appealing.
But let’s be honest: not all Pokémon are created equal in the looks department. Today, we’re going to flip the script and focus on the top 7 ugliest Pokémon ever.
The Most Ugly Pokemon, Ranked
Kicking off our list is Dracovish, a Pokémon that can only be described as an abomination of nature.
Created through the combination of two fossil halves, Dracovish looks like someone threw together random parts without a blueprint.
With its tiny head on an overly large body, and those awkwardly misshapen fins, it’s safe to say that Dracovish won’t be winning any beauty contests anytime soon.
Up next in the ugliest Pokémon ever is Probopass.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what makes Probopass so unattractive. Is it the overly large nose that takes up most of its face? The inanimate objects floating around it? The large, wool-like moustache?
Or perhaps it’s the combination of all these elements that make it look like someone’s art project gone horribly wrong.
Jynx has been a subject of controversy for various reasons, but one thing everyone can agree on is its lackluster aesthetic.
Its humanoid appearance mixed with a creepy, faceless expression, and unsettlingly large lips makes for a genuinely unattractive design.
While it may have psychic powers, it certainly doesn’t have the power of beauty on its side.
4. Mr. Mime
Close behind Jynx is Mr. Mime, another humanoid Pokémon that evokes discomfort more than anything else.
Its overly-expressive face combined with the strange, spherical joints on its limbs make it both bizarre and unnerving.
One can’t help but feel that its appearance is what you’d get if you asked a child to draw a human but told them they could only use shapes.
Mr. Mime’s design feels like a creepy afterthought, and it shows…
Guzzlord is another entry in the “What were they thinking?” category.
This Dark/Dragon-type Ultra Beast is basically a gaping maw surrounded by several other smaller mouths.
It’s as if someone designed a Pokémon while thinking about the concept of eternal hunger and nothing else.
With teeth jutting out in all directions and eyes that are more like soulless black holes, Guzzlord is truly a sight for sore eye – sore because you don’t want to look at it.
At the runner-up spot, we have Bruxish, a Water/Psychic-type Pokémon that seems to have been inspired by a nightmarish tropical fish.
Its color scheme is a chaotic mishmash, and its big, human-like teeth are disconcertingly off-putting.
Add to this a set of eyes that seem to be staring into the void, and you’ve got yourself one ugly Pokémon.
And finally, taking the crown for the ugliest Pokémon ever is Garbador.
While its design might serve as a critique of our wasteful society, it certainly isn’t winning any beauty awards.
With dripping ooze, a mismatched pair of eyes, and various “appendages” made of trash, Garbodor takes the concept of recycling a bit too far.
It’s almost as if the designers decided to see how ugly they could make a Pokémon before fans would cry foul.
Whatever it is, Garbador stands unchallenged in its ugliness.
In conclusion, while Pokémon has given us some of the most iconic and beloved creatures in pop culture, it has also produced some serious design flops.
But hey, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?
Even these ‘ugly’ Pokémon have their fans, serving as yet another testament to the enduring appeal of the Pokémon universe.
