To keep the franchise feeling fresh after all this time, new Pokémon have been introduced steadily, meaning there are now nine generations of monsters and over 1000 different creatures to impose Stockholm Syndrome on.
In the most recent Generation 9 influx of new monsters, it was fairly notable that there were considerably fewer goofy little dudes. However, Game Freak countered this by creating the worst-looking Pokémon of all time in Gholdengo.
This little weirdo comes from Gen 3 and is not only weird but also terrifying. A double whammy of unpleasantness, Sableye has horrible, blank gemstone eyes and a red gemstone instead of a belly button like a wishing troll from the 90s.
I love Blacephalon. This brightly colored Ultra Beast from Generation 7 and the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games, this towering clown-like creature is most notable for getting into what was essentially a dance-off with the other Ultra Beasts in an episode of the anime.
I guess after almost 30 years of creating new and exciting monsters, it’s inevitable that Game Freak would eventually create the tapeworm Pokémon. That makes it a perfect entry for our list of the weirdest Pokémon.
