Pokémon has long been a series that is renown for its strange, magical, and at times ridiculous creatures. Silly Pokémon designs have existed since Generation I. As generations pass and the roster increases, there are Pokémon that reach all levels of ridiculous.
Today we are going to take a look at the top 10 most ridiculous looking Pokémon from generations I to VI. If you think the pineapple with eggs for faces, Exeggutor, looks bad, you haven't seen anything yet.
The only Pokémon from Generation I that you'll find on this list. Porygon is a creature created entirely out of programming code. It is perhaps the most unique looking of Generation I's roster, yet the most ridiculous. To me, it looks like a 3D modelled bird that its creator forgot to render.
We're moving from Generation I straight up to Generation VI. Klefki is a duel-type Steel/Fairy Pokémon. What can I say? It is a Pokémon that is a keyring with varying keys on it. I guess inspiration came from the thought of keys mysteriously going missing due to fairies taking them. Blend the two together and presto -- you have Klefki.
Luvdisc is a water type Pokémon that was introduced in the third generation. It has a relatively flat body in the shape of a heart. Loving couples that saw the Pokémon in the water gave it its name. I can only imagine that it's creator really loves fish -- and I mean really, really loves fish.
Its appearance is somewhat deceiving. At first glance. you would think Sudowoodo is a grass type Pokémon, but it is actually a rock type. The front of this Pokémon definitely looks like it's had too many others scratching their rear ends on it. Not to mention the two branches on its head. Their use must be for children to hold on to during piggyback rides.
This tree-hanging bomb is a bug type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation II. It hangs in trees waiting for flying insect prey. It drops down from the tree if shaken while eating and explodes.
What is there to say? It looks like a pissed-off pinecone that was disturbed during dinner.
We are half way through the list and really starting to enter the bizarre land. Bronzor is dual-type Steel/Psychic Pokémon. It was first discovered in an ancient tomb, with objects found in them resembling it. To me, it looks like a Pokémon that has the same face as a pug -- like it ran into a wall really fast and ended up with a squashed face.
This is the only Ice Pokémon to be featured on this list. First introduced in Generation V, Vanillish is... well.... a big ice cream cone with a scoop of ice cream on it.
Might I add that it looks like a demonic ice cream with murderous intent? You might find something like this at a killer clown convention.
Gulpin is a poison type Pokémon capable of eating anything up to its own size. It has a black diamond marking on its back and a feature-like adornment on its head. This Pokémon is one step away from being the Pokémon frog prince in desperation for a kiss.
There is but one Pokémon that is more ridiculous looking than the vaguely humanoid Probopass. It is a dual-type Steel/Rock Pokémon that attacks with its multiple noses. If Mario was ever to be turned into the Pokémon, I guess this is what he would look like.
Here we are -- the number 1 most ridiculous Pokémon of them all. It's the one and only Trubbish. Its name, type, and appearance pretty much does all the mocking of this Pokémon for me. I guess when this particular pocket monster was being created, someone'd had a very bad day when it came to taking out the trash.
So there you have it! My top 10 most ridiculous Pokémon from Generations I to VI. From pissed off pinecones to demon ice creams to Mario's introduction into the Pokémon universe, we covered some strange creatures. I can only begin to imagine some of the creations that Generation VII is going to hold.
