8 First Generation Pokemon Dumber Than Anything That Came After

Pitch: "A fat, sleeping...thing. Maybe a cat? Who cares? The point is, it's very sleepy and fat."

The mark of a truly lazy Pokemon design is that it's doesn't hold up too well when you begin to question the design. What is Snorlax? A cat? A bear? Nobody really knows (just kidding, I'm sure there is extensive documentation on Snorlax's exact physiology, because literally every corner of the Pokemon world has been filled in by the internet). But the primary attributes that were given to Snorlax are "Fat" and "Likes To Sleep." Sound familiar?

THEY TURNED GARFIELD INTO A POKEMON.

How Lazy Is The Name: Snore + Relax = Snorlax! Actually, not bad - it rolls off the tongue nicely and takes some effort to figure out, and at least it isn't named "Fatsleep" or "Obesetired" or "Garfield The Pokemon But Like Blue Or Something Who Cares."
