Probopass

You know he's hit poke'puberty 'cause there's a 'stache under his nose.

2

Luvdisc

Because nothing says "I wanna be the very best" like a heart-shaped fish.

3

Unown

"I've always wanted to fight a battle with letters!" said no one ever.

4

Beautifly & Vivillon

"Guys, you don't understand. We need MORE butterfly pokemon."

5

Rotom

"Give me an S! Give Me a C! Give me a Rotom! What's that spell? SCROaaawhwaitaminute...

6

Mr. Mime

Go home pokeman, you're drunk. And real creepy.

7

Pineco

How DO you define lazy? We'd say taking a word, removing two letters, and then making a Pokemon out of that is a pretty good start...

8

Smeargle

Why battle when you can paint happy trees instead?

9

Shuckle

"Woah look at this cool rock with holes in itoooooooh MY GOD IT HAS SLENDER APPENDAGES."

10

Dunsparce

"But it can learn Earthquake!" - I don't care, LOOK AT IT.

11

Sunkern

Don't you wanna battle with a SEED that has the LOWEST STARTING STATS IN THE SERIES?

12

Bouffalant

Because Tauros needed an afro.

13

Trubbish

"Go on, kids! Play with the leaky trash bag!"

14

Feebas

Because everyone wanted a Magikarp that DOESN'T evolve into a killer dragon. Wait, what? It does that, too? REALLY?

15

Chingling

"Is that... Is that a bell? Are you attacking me with a bell?"

16

Chimecho

Again... I have no words...

17

Plusle and Minum

"Remember Pikachu? You guys love Pikachu, right? Here's two more of the Pikachu! Don't you just LOVE Pikachu 'cause here's two more little Pikachus! But they're different because one is positive and the other is negative - isn't that fun and clever and useful!?"

18

Delibird

"Welp, I'm useless in battle. But if you need a SAMMICH..."

19

Farfetch'd

Apparently, at one point, someone thought Duck + Leek = Killing Machine.

20

Cherubi

How do they taste? Do they scream when you're eating them? Because people totally have to eat these, right?

21

Vanillish & Co.

Again... Trainers have to eat these, right? RIGHT? How could you NOT lick one of these?? And which came first? The Pokemon or the invention of the ice cream cone!? MAKE IT STOP.

22

Bidoof

Somewhere down the line someone at Gamefreak lost a bet and now we have a beaver Pokemon named Bidoof. There is no other explanation for this outside of an innuendo we probably shouldn't discuss here.

23

Vullaby

"What's it doing? ....Does it poop in that shell?"

24

Amoongus

I can't. I'm done.

25

Magikarp

You didn't think we could make this list without including THE classic useless Poke', now did you? Just put his awesome evolution aside and consider him a mascot.
