This is a pretty simple thread (i've regularly done "Worst evolution design" threads in the past), and I except it to blow up.

One of them in my opinion (i'm a causal fan) is Scizor. It's design isn't much of a natural evolution for Scyther (a proper natural evolution can only happen in Sinnoh) and more like "Heracross on drugs".

Blaziken and Greninja are the first that come to mind. I would also say Eevee is really overrated and gets too much attention, but I don't dislike it.

Well Scizor ressembled Scyther more in the Spaceworld demo, but they decided to change it.

It's backsprite looks even more similar.

On-Topic: Pikachu, so much. I want another game without it (like BW), or that downplays it (like the Hoenn games). I'm also starting to dislike Charizard and Mewtwo because they have gotten too much attention lately.

not really on the charizard train, or mewtwo for that matter. :x I'd say they're both ok at best but imo they're not worth being put on a pedestal.

Scyther. I know this Pokemon isn't as popular as some of the others, but it is pretty well liked as a strong bug type Pokemon. But honestly, and I have probably stated this multiple times around different threads, but I honestly hate it. Even before my first nuzlocke, I always thought it looked pretty creepy as a kid, and I did not watch much of the Orange Island series because of it. Then I did my first nuzlocke and lost nearly my whole team to it. I despise this bug!

Charizard. Now this one's a bit weird. I actually do like Charizard, to an extent. Sure, it's my least favorite of the gen 1 starters. But I loved Charmander as a kid, as well as Charizard. But Charizard gets favoritism. I'm not talking about the fan favoritism, I am talking about company favoritism. I'm fine if Charizard gets some extra love in the show and some extra appearance in the games. But I am not fine with the fact that Charizard has 2 mega evolutions when Venusaur and Blastoise only have one. Yeah I know they probably couldn't have thought up another design for the other 2, but they could have just scrapped one of Charizard's. Would have been easy as heck, they just could have only put one in the game. But no, Charizard needs to megas. Why did Charizard need 2 megas? Because he was Ash's special Pokemon over 10 years before he got a Mega? Because he's got a huge fan following? Honestly, if it's either of those, then Charizard doesn't deserve my appreciation. It's not Charizard's fault, but I can't look past the fact that the people who made him are giving him extra.

To a lesser extent off of this, Blaziken. I mean, I never liked Blaziken much to begin with. Then Blaziken got an early Mega Evolution. There were plenty of other great Pokemon who got megas, who could have been given out as a gift at the start of the game. I think the only thing that saves this one a bit was they likely did this distribution to let fans know they have Hoenn remakes coming since they were on high demand at that point. Still though, Abosl and Mawile were gen 3, one stage Pokemon who received Megas in X and Y.

Um Scyther is definitely a popular Pokemon!

Hydreigon, it's a terrible representation of a hydra for me.
Cincinno, it's a rather bad evolution.
Samurott, it's not terrible but I've always found the design disappointing.
Aegislash, same as Samurott.
Buzzwhole, I find it creepy instead of hilarious.

Not sure if people love this one (aside from competitive rain teamers), but I hate the Pelipper line. I hate the same trauma with it that most people have with Zubat.

Charizard, Mewtwo, Entei, Lucario, Arceus, Greninja, Primarina. Sometimes Pikachu and its clones depending on my mood. I guess you could say that I typically dislike Pokemon that are overrated or overexposed. I don't mean to hate on them on purpose, I just dislike it when certain Pokemon get shoved in my face because they're "cool" or "badass".

Gardevoir. I used to really like it, but well... Don't Google Gardevoir unless you have strong filters for the image results, okay? (One too many female Gardevoir in compromising positions pretty much killed my interest.)

Although it's very popular, I actually don't like Arcanine at all.

My first 100% IV Pokémon in PoGO was a Growlithe and to this day I am mildly disappointed.

One that comes to mind for me is Flygon. I much prefer its middle stage, the lovely Vibrava, and wish Vibrava was the final evo and had better stats so it would get more love than that Flygon thing. :<

I’m also not a huge fan of Mewtwo.

I have an intense aversion to Snorlax and Munchlax.
Covet their Leftovers, then dispose.
