Why do you guys hate Druddigon?

The design feels uninspired

However people saying it is "bad" is unwarranted. It does its job just fine and there are much worse pokemon viability-speaking

Its mostly for it's appearance, the design looks like Gamefreak let some two year old go wild with his crayons (And the kid ONLY had red and blue crayons) and then put spikes EVERYWHERE for TEH KEWLNESS (Have you looked at its mouth? it doesn't even have teeth! only those same stupid spikes on the sides of the mouth.), the end result is a bit nauseating to look at.

Also the fact that it's a Dragon type, most Dragon type Pokemon are near mythical, and usually take a lot of training to get, but Druddigon is just some random derpy easily obtained cave beast, and then there's the fact that it has wings, but cannot fly at all, such a shame, being supposedly based on a Gargoyle doesn't really help at all, sounds like people grasping for straws to try and dredge something positive out of it.

Of course I acknowledge that the thing has its fans, and they are welcome to it.

Not really, some of the traits it has (absorbing sunlight, rock hard skin, etc.) are features that are typically associated with gargoyles. It's not like Zygarde being shoved into Nighogg's role despite the only similarity being that they're subterranean dragons, there's a bit more to the character to lend to the possibility.

if druddigon can absorb sunlight, why can't it learn Solar Beam?

Same reason why Helioptile can't learn it either.

I really don't know where that thing was going design-wise; though XY made it work to an extent. Keep in mind these are personal gripes--while I don't hate Druddy, it is on my bottom ten.

Otherwise, it really isn't anything to write home about on the battlefield either. I think they were going for the whole "Magmar" deal.
