Pokemon who got uglier after evolution
So... Which pokemon do you think "devolved" in look after they evolved?
Mine: Although it's a close race, Dragonite loses out to Sceptile! Seriously, Grovyle is one of the (if not THE) most awesome of the starters. But then he has to evolve to that...

DOES IT VIA COPY/PASTE
Dragonite is adorable.
Shellder -> Cloyster (WHY?!?)
Any starter -> Middle-evo (except Monferno.)
Kricketot -> Kricketune (Just ..no)
Rhydon -> Rhyperior
Magmar -> Magmortar (Rhyperior and Magmortar seem to be the ugliest Pokemon if this gen, IMO.)

Reason: Spelled "Cloyster" wrong. :/

Live Long And Prosper...
My pick would have to be Stunky. When it evolves into Stunktank(I think that's the proper spelling)...ew and yuck!
And why would anyone say that Dragonite is ugly? It's very pretty and adoreable at the same time!
Credit goes to PlatinumDude for the sprite.

It's not how good they look after evolution; it's how much good-looking-ness they lost whilst in the process. The process, not the finished item. Dragonite traded elegance for goof... Hell, it looks more like Slowbro evolution...

The Sinnoh Battle Frontier is among them, and an old foe is back for revenge. With Rain's new companions, as well as some old friends by his side, can he win this challenge and stop Shinsei Muto before it's too late?

Don't forget the other two. LoS is long, so be sure to have plenty of free time. =)

And again, the percepion of what looks good differs from one person to another, especially when the objects in question are imaginary creatures. Dragonair itself does not look that great to me, while Dragonite does. Same is the case with Rhydon to Rhypherior. Rhypherior certainly looks cooler than Rhydon in my eyes, while to Æsahættr, he finds them repulsive. As is the case with Cloyster.

I know, I know, I was just clarifying that I never put Dragonite on my top list (at least not for the Worst Looking pokemon that is...)
Besides, I already put the word think at the start of the thread, no?

Personally, I don't think Dragonite is ugly, just incredibly stupid looking. I feel they should have kept with the elegant, sea-serpent theme instead of going with the whole goofy dragon thing.
Anyways, here's my call:
I think Clamperl lost all of it's cuteness when it evolved into Huntail.

Koffing > Weezing
Not that Koffing was glamorous to begin with, but Weezing looks weirdly depressed and somewhat gassier.

Smoochum. I mean, just look at it's evo, for crying out loud.

Just some dreamer
I think you forgot...
Bastidon. Oh my. I think that thing looks like the victum of a plastic surgery that went horribly wrong. I don't know... it's just, Ewww.

Clarion of Revelations
I'm AMAZED it took someone that long to say Bastidon...that thing just about tops my list for ugliest pokemon ever. But the top spot actually goes to Raticate. The think looks like it lost a fight with a washing machine and then went in for a round with a lawnmower -- which it also lost.
*Sniff* Dragonite is ADORABLE :'(
