2 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

I love Mew, he's my favorite gen 1 Pokemon, but he's overrated. I'm sorry, but Smeargle can learn more moves that him!

Can't even be caught legibly on any game so far, that's how good it is

3 Dragonite Dragonite
4 Articuno Articuno

He's beast in hp and defense, the best ice types in kanto and one of my freinds trademark Pokemon.

5 Moltres Moltres

He's good but dosen't deserve all the attenion he gets. Zapados and articuno are better and charizard's allready the best fire flyer. Also his trademark move is a regular move now and can be easily taught to the new unfeavunts and what not.

6 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. And is too overrated

Easily the most overrated but I can't imagine anyone saying "no" to having a fire Dragon on their team.

7 Alakazam Alakazam
8 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
9 Surfing Pikachu

Now if your for real with Pokemon games your starter Pokemon should be the best and I got him to learn surf from trading him into stadium 1 for n64. His other moves are dig, volt tackle and thunder.

10 Shiny Charizard

Pure awesome and my fave shiny also charizard is the only secondary flying type 3rd evolution unlike all the unoriginal fire fighting.

I always had a Charmander as my starter so I always had a Charizard

The Contenders

11 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A giant defense and atack mongul, his only probably is the low speed.

12 Hitmonchan Hitmonchan

Good attack, very rare and I think only obtained through stadium.

13 Zapdos Zapdos

Matched against other flyers his electricity rules parylizing and flying along with double team with keep the opponents from ever attacking and his speed also helps this work but he's not the best and my main Pokemon pikachu is electric and better anyways.

14 Snorlax

Snorlax should be higher

15 Wigglytuff
16 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Grass/Poison type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Like all other starter last evolutions he's very good and he's secondary poison even when he's just a bulbasuar but he's not as good as the other starters.

17 Pikachu
18 Hitmonlee
19 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl
20 Psyduck

This is my all time favourite Pokemon. He was hilarious in the anime, has a frankly beautiful simplistic design, something I think the later generations could learn a lot from. He is everything I miss about Pokemon now it is in it's sixth generation and whatever series of anime. Psyduck is minimalist in its design yet likable, and unlike every other Pokemon in the new generation, he has a genuine character which is not only cute but relatable. And also he has quite a cool evolution. Psyduck has been with me from the beginning and only recently have I realised he is the Pokemon I have liked the most from the start. So for that, I thank you psyduck.

Overrated as HELL. Overshadows Golduck
