Pikachu. Sure, it sounds cute and everything, but it literally means electric mouse.

Jogurt attacks! Inflicts 1 point of damage on the Goblin. Goblin is defeated! Jogurt gains experience.
...it appears that Jogurt's level has increased to 1.

I can't believe that this hasn't been mentioned yet:

Boldore.

Seriously? They barely changed the spelling of boulder... And it's pre-evolution Roggenrolla isn't much better. (Wasn't their a movie titled Roggenrolla or something like that?)
At least their evolution Gigalith isn't totally horrible...

It's a combination of boulder and ore. It's pronounced differently.

I don't care what you say, Generation II sucks.
That's just my opinion, no matter how true it may be.

It never fails to amuse me at how people get upset at how "lazy" certain Japanese names are because they're "just (English) words". They're a foreign language to them. They sound exotic and unusual because they're not literally "Gear", etc. It'd be like saying, "Japan's name for the new gear Pokemon is stupid. They just called it Gear! Haguru sounds cool, at least."

Also, Seel, Krabby, and any name that's basically a misspelling of a "real" animal name, or something that's just a word (Electrode). Honourable mention to anything that's just two words put together (think Voltorb, not Samurott).
