Top 10 Most Annoying Pokemon Characters

The Top TenXW

1SerenaSerena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

I would say she is the prettiest of all ash's girl companions but she is also the most pointless and strangest of all. Dawn, May, Misty and Iris are better when they are having fights with ash. It is funny to see that. Serena's huge crush on ash is just annoying. At least The other girls don't blush every time ash compliments them. Ash is a good character but not worth for all that. I don't care if ash's girl companions are pretty or not, I want them to have a CHARACTER. And all of them do exept for serena. I don't like bonnie either.

Stupid, annoying and useless. It's a shame to even include her as a Pokemon trainer, when all she does is nothing but fantasizing about Ash. Of all girl companion characters, she's the worst because she's got nothing! She has no dream, she shoes no enthusiasm about catching Pokemon.. She's really a fan service character with flat personality

What were the writers trying to do? Make Pokemon parody Sword Art Online? NO THANK YOU! I love the romance in Sword Art Online, but not the romance in Pokemon between Ash and Serena! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She is very pretty, I'll give her that but all she likes to do is follow Ash around. Almost everything she does is about trying to impress. I personally think she needs to calm herself down.

She's pretty but pointless

Misty is the worst character of all. All she does is follow ash around and never does anything productive. If any case ash is always saving her. Come on she claims to be sweet when really she is the meanest person ever. She is always insulting everybody and thinks she is so pretty. Come on can she have some modesty. What really annoyed me was the fact that ash found the togepi egg but misty still persisted in keeping it and pushed ash out of the way when it hatched. She basically stole his Pokemon. Also why does she act like pikachu belongs to her. It doesn't. She is a brat and the worst Pokemon character of all. Why is she so mean to psyduck? A Pokemon trainer loves all their Pokemon and if it wasn't for him misty would have no Pokemon at all.

Misty is NOTHING like Serena. The only reason she did "nothing" for the first few seasons was because the writers focused everything on Ash and nothing on Brock or Misty.

When she does get character development, she is the strongest of any of them, she's a GYM LEADER for one thing, she conquers her childhood fears of Gyarados, and she even trains one for herself.

Misty is headstrong, stubborn, and dedicated to her Pokemon, she may have no goal in the beginning of the show, but she has a goal of becoming a water Pokemon master, and she's amazing at underwater battles, and she has more knowledge then Ash or Brock even when it comes to battling.

Misty may be rude and loud, but she truly cares for her friends, she cheers Brock on when he does anything worthwhile, and she pulls him away when he gets sidetracked (and annoying) when he sees pretty women, not to mention she helps and supports Ash every step of the way. We get to see the relationship between Ash ...more

She is even more useless than Serena. people complain about Serena just following Ash everywhere but Misty is in the same boat. For 200+ episodes she did NOTHING to further herself. At least Serena is supportive, Misty just insulted and physically abused Ash and Brock.

I kinda like her because she is a leading woman sometimes but other times she is just a whiny brat!

Iris, is she really that bad? At least she gave personality to the anime with her character unlike hint hint Serena who does literally nothing except fawn over Ash. I would say it's the writers fault for making her "what a kid" phrase which gives her the most hate. Yes I get annoyed too, I feel like saying your a kid too honey but at least she gave personality with her constant bickering with Ash. but she cared and cheered for him just as much! Please, compared to Serena's fake character, Iris wins.

"What a kid! " Imagine hearing that almost every day of your life. Pretty harsh, huh? That's what Iris is.

Iris is the most insulting girl out of Pokemon black and white, indigo league, diamond pearl and Pokemon blue ruby all she says is what a kid EVERY TIME I HEARD HER I WANTED TO SAY SHUT YOUR FAT MOUTH UP sometimes I just got bored and watched old episodes plus iris is always and never stops bouncing. And most of the time she loses her axes how annoying

Is it because she's black!?

Ash is technically the worst trainer of all time because a 15 year trained Pikachu couldn't even beat snivy, arceus, dialga or, darkrai and palkia

I hate Ash to the heart! Make Pokemon Origins the new main anime series so I can see Red winning instead of Ash losing! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Again not annoying. Just dull. (well depends on what Ash you're talking about but still).

Ash is the hottest and whoever says he is a bad trainer deserves to die a sad slow, bloody death and suck a cock

Ugh her voice! It hurts my ears! She's cute and love how Clemont cares for her and all like as if he were her mother but Clemont should be better off traveling on his own.

She is LITERALLY the most annoying character of all. She's constantly running off and getting lost. And instead of waiting where she is she keeps wandering and in turn getting Ash/Serena/Clemonts Pokemon lost with her! Her stupid needy, selfish I wanna do this! I wanna do that stuff gets me riled up. She's just the worst. Her voice overall really grinds my gears. Every time a beedrill shows up I PRAY that it slays her with his drills.

God she is more annoying the max

For heaven's sake. She's seven years old and younger than max.

He annoyed me so much when he's on about Ash can't beat his dad and then when Ash beats his dad he runs off and cries and steals the badge, grow up!

Why is he even apart of the group? He doesn't a Pokemon, always blocking brock, believe he's all knowing, to put it simple he's the meowth in their team.

He is most annoying character in the series...he should be at top position of the list.

He's always the one the pokemon rely on AND that's TOO MUCH! Just like Jirachi!

"Oh, hon! I accidentally dropped my ribbon case! " Oopsie. That guy is a big baby
Just wanted to punch him in the face

Harley isn't a girl? I watched the anime but that idiot is just an excuse for a transgender idiot.


I hated her in the game and I hated her in the show. Every time somebody is trying to do something, she'd pop up and get in the way. Plus she's a spaz and is a terrible trainer.

I liked her better in the game: she develops. In the anime, she's just there to be there. I'm not a fan of her voice either.

She's just plain stuck up and stupid.


I was watching a Pokemon episode (but not really because I was talking to my friends because we were having an anime marathon) and all I could here was
Pika Pika-pika-Pikachu pika pika pika pika
Chu pika pika chu pikachu pika pikachu
Pika chu pika pika chu pika chu pika
I want to go into the anime and punch ash and say GET A SCIZOR OR SOMETHING BETTER THAN THAT MONSTER! (scizor rules, so does barry)

Do you expect a Pikachu to say Bulbasaur? If you don't like Pikachu, why are you watching the show? - KingofPawns

It's always pikachu this pikachu that yeah I get that he/she is the mascot and all but he is so annoying but don't get me wrong I love the show

If you hate pika don't watch the show 0-0

The Contenders

11Dawn's Piplup

Gosh, it and Dawn were pretty annoying (though Dawn had her moments). Piplup wasn't cute, or funny... Just annoying.

To say how I find Dawn's Piplup unbearable, I went away, giving it the label "worse than Jar Jar Binks! " * dramatic music*

To be honest I hated dawn. And to make it worse? Add an annoying little piplup. The writers tried to make piplup a funny Pokemon...BUT THEY JUST MADE IT AN ANNOYING PENGUIN WITH A BOWLING BALL HEAD! So I personally think Dawn should NEVER come back! Cya Dawn!

That small penguin should just grow up.

Paul fans annoy me so much, everyone keeps saying he is a "complex character" but he doesn't change until the very end.

I've never wanted ash to win in a rival battle. I've always rooted for his enemy. Such as gary, paul, trip, all of them. But by far, Paul is the number one rival out there. Paul would moss gary and trip. (Plus on a side thought, you know? If ash beat that darkrai trainer in sinnoh, he would've won the whole thing. Ash took out 3 of that trainers Pokemon, while the other finalist couldn't even take darkrai out.) :}

Let's face it, paul is the most real trainer out there. He's just like anyone that plays the game, if a Pokemons weak, he puts it aside. We all do that. And let's not act like we don't do harsh training in the game. Also, if you've played red/blue/yellow/green(Japan.) we all know that you've done the missingno glitch to get rare candies to stuff your little charmander(or any other starter) so they will get to be top tier. Paul is great, real, and has a good side.

You Jessie haters rock! She deserves to be Number One this list because of how mean she is too her teammates. Hell, I'm sick of her yelling, "We're blasting off again! " whenever she loses to her enemies just as I hate beating the crap out of her teammates whenever they piss her off. I wish that they, especially Meowth, murdered her for that.

All of you Jessie who voted her haters down are delusional. Do you suck up to her even though she's not real? If so and she terrorizes the hell out of you, don't blame me.

The people of kalos league will not like jessie beauty they will rejected her in the finals that's why because she didn't measure up the finals that she lost. Like she lose to dawn and may for the lasts time she got her butt kicked by serena in the semi finals round like may and dawn humiliated jessie in diamond and pearl and battle frontier. I told you jessie was not famous or a winner and she hasn't done a good job of that that's why she's a loser and a big mouth. She's nothing but a stuck up little snob and she got what she deserves

Delusional. Presumptuous. Persistent. Annoying. Perfect words to sum up 1/3 of the Team Rocket Trio. I'd say the best way to improve this character would be to put duct tape her mouth shut for the remainder of the series.

She's a stuck up and she wasn't nice to serena or the girls performers

It is my belief that a lot of the people who hate Dawn are angry shippers that are jealous Dawn is such good friends with Ash. It's clear that Ash clicked better with and understood Dawn more than any of his other female friends. And for the record I'm NOT a pearlshipper, in fact, I HATE ALL of the main ships, especially pearlshipping! I wish people could just appreciate how special a true friendship is and not automatically assume that just b/c two people are close it means they should or will eventually "get together" romantically.

Dawn is awesome! Her mamoswine and togekiss are the boss

At least she had role in the plot, unlike Misty who was just there to be another Sakura.

She is good looking

16JigglypuffJigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Please stop drawing on our faces

Annoying as heck! Just pops up out of nowhere then sings, gets mad and scribbles on people's faces! What the heck is that all about!?

Any time I saw Jigglypuff in an episode I would instantly care less about that episode. How would a Pokemon not know that its move would send people to sleep. Even so yes I would find it annoying if someone fell asleep as I was singing but has this Jigglypuff never met another one.

That pic is ugly but jiggles is the second only Pokemon who didn't get abused and stands up and FIGHTS! Let's go Vaporeon and Jigglypuff! Kill the trainers!

17MayMay is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a more.

May is my other favorite main girl. You have to love her interactions with Drew.

In my opinion, it's not the character herself I find annoying, it's the character's fans I find annoying. They treat May like she's the best thing since toilet paper, and then bag on the other female characters because of it. I like May, but she's a cartoon character, not a goddess.

She's was whiny as hell! She cried when she got lost, she freaks out about losing battles and contests and she's always hating on Max cause he's smarter than her.

She's a sore loser and an idiot.

The way she popped up was more creepy then annoying and O chose to fewi t as she need lesson from her mentorAsh and Misty which was odd them in that role at time because they where also relatively inexperinced themselfs as still needed a lot of Brock help.

20CilanCilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

Generic Brock with no style or sex appeal.

Pokemon was awesome until Cilan replaced Brock.

Am I the only who is actually okay with Cilan?

I don't like his catch phrase
