Since there's a thread for Pokémon designs do you like, here's one for the ones which do you like the least, I guess.

I don't think that many of them are bad, but I'm not fond of ones that are too cutesy ones.

the only kind of designs that bother me are the ones that i find uninspired and boring, which i know is very subjective.
some examples are fearrow, tyrogue, bastiodon, the elemental monkeys of gen 5, klinklang etc.
i don't know how but these pokemon fit in the same category for me as "boring", cause i think they don't have any appeal or gimmick.

i don't mind pokemon that are considered "ugly". for example, i think Emboar is well designed, even if it isn't "pretty" :hmmazurill:

I tend to dislike Pokemon that don't look "alive" in the sense that they lack emotion/facial expressions.

Most Ultra Beasts as well as Pokemon such as Klingklang and Dhelmise fall under this category.

However, if I had to pick my most hated Pokemon design, it would 200% go to this abomination.

Tfw I actually like Barbaracle.

Anyways, overly cute, pretty, and simplified Pokémon are huge turn offs to me. Some examples include Pichu, Lilligant, Glaceon, and Electrode.

Edit: I'm also not keen of Pokémon with a cluttered appearance without rhyme or reason. I'm looking at you Lucario.

Meanwhile Lilligant is one of my favorites. xD

I think we have opposite tastes in Pokemon.

Kaity, Bijou, Lapis, or Lazuli (depends on the game)
I am not really sure how to describe the designs I dislike without me just saying they are just ugly or have just a poor design. I know ugly is a subjective term but yeah.

I guess examples of Pokemon that I think have a poor design and just not that great to look at (at least in my opinion) include:

-The Grimer line (both Kanto/Alolan form)
-The Koffing line
-The Nosepass line
-The Regis
-The Kricketot line
-Lickilicky
-Rhyperior
-Seismitoad
-Throh/Sawk
-Basculin
-The Trubbish line
-The Foongus line
-The Klink line
-Stunfisk
-Tornadus/Thunderus/Landorus
-Aromatisse
-The Binacle line
-All the Ultra Beasts except Poipole

100% Zygarde will always look weird to me, it fits into the category of "too much" imo. Bruxish is another, there's so much going on it bugs my eyes.

I don't like overly complex designs, like the Tao trio.

Going to post in this thread again because I have to say it.

I dislike anything that is robot-like, based on an inanimate object or plain ugly.
