    Okay, I'm going to try to defend Cofagrigus... because in my opinion it's actually pretty creative, it takes the Egyptian motif and does something not expected. Instead of a horror movie style mummy coming out of the sarcophagus, the sarcophagus has ghostly hands and then opens up in an unusual way reveling a ghost’s demonic face.

    I personally think all of Gen 5's Pokemon look poorly designed. And the Gen 6 Pokemon aren't that great either imo I just like Froakie and Chespin but the others aren't looking too great so far. And I think Mewtwo's new forme ruins the original forme. It just looks like a bad copy of him and I think Gamefreak is running out of ideas for new Pokemon so they keep recycling the old ones. Some one said a good word for what they're doing but I forget what it was may be redundant? I dunno but it bothers me how bad some of the new Pokemon look.

    ok- that made me laugh.

    I never quite got Staryu. Its a pretty little gemmy starfish thing, but never struck me as a pokemon.
    Jinx and Mr. Mime... /shiver. Hello Uncanny Valley.
    Ambipom.... it has stumps. It has no hands *weeps*
    Does Whiscash *really* need a big W on its forehead?
    Dusclops looks like its getting ready to grab b00bies.
    Lickiliky- just plain disturbing

    Gulpin looks like a rotten pear with a pair of duck lips. Either a rotten pear or a green blob of some sort

    Never liked it or its evolution. They weren't really used much.. or atleast not known of as well.

    I think Luvdisc is a bit weird. So it's a heart with a mouth and eyes. Okay then...

    I don't like the new mewtwo design. It looks strange to me, and I think it's unnessary. I wish they would stop this "merging" business and creating new forms of already existing pokemon.

    The ones in bold are the only ones whose designs I dislike out of those. And it's not so much disliking Resh/Zek/Kyurem's designs as thinking they don't really look like Pokemon. (Black and White Kyurem are even worse imo). Also, why no Electrode and Voltorb? Or Foongus and Amoongus? I mean, doing the Pokeball thing once was bad enough.

    I think (I THINK) that's supposed to be in a kissy face...so it's a heart fish with a kissy face.

    Which leads me to think that Alomomola is awkward.

    No single Pokemon is poorly created for me. All of them look alright/great.

    There are definitely designs that I'm not fond of, but I will not going to go as far as saying that any Pokemon is "poorly" designed. To me this implies a lack of artistic talent and skill, which if were the case for one of Game Freak's employees they could easily remedy this problem by firing the artist/designer and hiring someone else.

    I've seen tons of poorly designed Fakemon though...

    My analysis


    Cofagrigus (by far the biggest joke ever)--meh, i somewhat see you
    Zekrom--wat. no way. i will admit it is not the best legendary I have ever seen but you must concede it is not stupid.
    Reshiram--roughly same ^
    Landorus (joke)--I think the reason for this is GF is trying too hard to base new pokemon off existing things, like the djinn. I like amorphous pokemon
    Kyurem--meh
    Tornadus (joke)--understandable
    Thundurus (joke)--same ^
    Hydreigon--Hmmm, this one is tough. I think they could have gone somewhere with the dark/dragon and/or three heads but the design is somewhat flawed
    Mandibuzz--you are correct my good sir
    Bisharp--I am not allowed to use the kind of language I would like to in response to this. Bisharp is the most awesome design I have ever seen and I can't imagine why you would say this.
    Golurk (looks like a robot)--ok but your point?
    Druddigon--yes filler dragon type
    Mienshao--hmmm....yes
    Accelgor--No. I actually like Accelgor's design and the theory behind its evolution. In general speed-based pokemon appeal to me.
    Mienfoo--yes
    Cryogonal--I think they could have gone somewhere with this, but the sprite is dissappointing. When I first read its dex entries I was so excited to see it and I was let down
    Escavalier--Yes, but they had to put something in the Shelmet/Karrablast/Accelgor line
    Vanilluxe--Now I think a lot of people use this to criticize gen 5, but I don't go around railing against Mr. Mime
    Reuniclus--No. For a psychic-type it's pretty sweet. I like it.
    Gothitelle--yes
    Archeops--No, I actually like this one. I know there are other rock/flying but the prehistoric bird was a good idea.
    Gigalith--When I imagine a straight-up rock type this is what I imagine. No other design. It is not my fav but I still approve
    Swoobat--Correct
    Spiritomb--Finally a non-5th gen. I'll have to disagree here. Spiritomb could have had a different name but it is somewhat cool.
    Combee--Huh...yea, I guess you're right

    Tornadus, Landorus, Thundurus- Dislike that they are the same pokemon with three different skins and stat distributions. The Therian formes should have been the original ones. They used them to satisfy their form obsession.
    Garbodor- I admit it was an interesting idea but it just looks odd.
    Togekiss- It kind of looks like a big, awkward kite...thing.
    Stunfisk-...look at it lol...and don't get me started on that battle cry...
    Tangrowth-Just a large tangela with arms.
    Sylveon-It is actually kind of growing on me but I chose it because it doesn't fit in with the others. The others all have simple designs and look cohesive when lined up next to each other and Sylveon is just...there. If they had simply stopped at one bow around the neck,though it still wouldn't fit in, it would have been better but the one around it's ear is overkill to me (i'm picky when it comes to detail).
    Klinklang-It's just a Klang with a spike disk on the bottom...and Klang isn't all that great to begin with.

    I find many of the Gen 1 lines lazy with evos. A magnet evolve into 3 magnets? Great.
    Tbh, My least fav lines are in Gen 1 AND 5. But it's not SO many; most of the Pokemon are designed well.

    some of these designs are so bad that it makes them hilarious and i love them. like mr mime, vanilluxe. but some are just so bad it's horrible. (garbodor)

    i think a lot of 4th and 5th gen legendaries just look awkward, i mean they're supposed to strike fear and awe into you aren't they? dialga looks ridiculous, palkia looks half fish half fox, with a mullet, giratina... god theres so many. i think out of the bunch shaymin sky forme is the only one i actually like

    Vanilluxe line - I know they've had bad ideas for pokemon before (magnets, pokeballs) but a pokemon based off an ice cream to me is just a big middle finger.
    Kami trio - One of these looks bad enough, then they copy, paste, change the colour and a few details then call it a new pokemon.

    i think smoochum and jynx look kinda sloppy, and trubbish was a waste of time. seriously, who has used a trubb/garbo and it b effective. they are ugly, too.

    Purugly- the name fits it well
    Probopass- What did they do to you Nosepass?
    Magamar- I still have no idea what this is.
    Ho-oh- it's a rainbow turkey.

    Ho-oh is most definitely not poorly created. Okay, it looks a bit like a turkey, but there's nothing wrong with turkeys. It's supposed be a phoenix, anyway. It's so much better than the later gen mascots that have extra body parts and random lines draw all over them in an attempt to make them interesting.

    Swalot doesn't look anything like Muk, and they're based off of different concepts (Muk being a living pile of sludge, while Swalot is literally a stomach).

    And seriously, what the hell is up with people going on about later gen stuff looking "unoriginal", or "awkward"? They don't like any better or any worse than previous Pokemon.

    Agreed!Most people say that the new generation is uncreative but the truth is that the gen 1 pokemon are like that.
