The Top Ten

1
Raichu
Everyone likes Pikachu too much... Game Freak is giving too much stuff to Pikachu. Who get's the light ball? Pikachu. Who get's to change outfits for contests in ORAS? Pikachu. Which Pokemon gets to say their anime cry in XY? Pikachu. Which Pokemon can you find with a low level in the grass even though it has a pre evolution? Pikachu. Which Pokemon did Game Freak choose to almost KILL Giovanni in the anime with their electro ball? Pikachu. Game Freak should stop and think about Raichu. Did you know that Clefairy was originally going to be Ash's first Pokemon? If the mascot was Clefairy then would Clefairy get all of the praise? I bet it would. I know that people say 'If you hate Pikachu then you hate Pokemon! ' but you don't have to like a 10 year old's first Pokemon. Even though Pikachu may be the mascot, I will always love Raichu, no matter how stupid Game Freak will make him look.

First let me get this straight. Pikachu is my in my top three least favorite Pokemon and is saved because of this guy who's in my top fifteen favorite Pokemon
Long live raichu

2Magmortar
Raichu is underrated, but nobody cares about Magmortar except me and 1 friend of mine. I mean come on, this guy is so powerful, looks like he's from the Incredibles, and even though he is fire type (which I am not a big fan of), he is just underrated by all means.

3Mawile
She deserves to be loved
Two years ago in 2012 if you said Mawile was overrated for many reasons I would've said "What, Mawile? How? "
That should be one of the parts if they ever make a 4th Back to the Future movie! Well, Mawile itself certainly isn't too great, sitting at NU for so long. Suddenly, they made a Mega Evolution for it. When I first looked at it I actually thought it was the worst Mega. But then I saw its Ability: Huge Power.
Holy...
105 attack times 2 equals 210 attack! What an insanity!
Well, I thought it was overpowered until I saw its other flaw: its speed is still low, Sucker Punch is its only priority move and its weaknesses are just too common on the battlefield. I'm not trying to put you off using it by speaking about its flaws, if you use it just right it becomes Uber powerful. But its not really that deserving of the OU tier. Poor Mega Manectric, you really needed an improvement like Mega Mawile did.
It's pretty good and I see why its in OU, that stops it from being #1. Oh and sorry for on half non Kanto Pokemon on this list. It's all good though. Just my opinion.

4Chesnaught
Chesnaught is very underrated

anythingispossible


5Gothitelle
People don't like her design, which I find very cool, she has great stats except in speed and attack (which she doesn't need 'cause is phychic type ) and can learn good moves too, definitely the best V generation Pokemon for me and one of my favorites
Also overshadowed by Gothita

quintionshrak8713


6Walrein
Why do haters hate this Pokémon
He had fine Stats

quintionshrak8713


7Relicanth

8Luxray

9Vileplume

10Spinda
Have you ever seen it in a competitive battle. And those confusing moves

The Contenders

11Volbeat

12Pineco

13Emboar

14Sableye

15Serperior
And he's overshadowed by Snivy

quintionshrak8713

This pokémon does got almost no love because everyone wants Sceptile for SSB4 and completly ignore Serperior. Serperior's also a victim to the insane vore arts from deviantART.

16Mime Jr.

17Spiritomb
It's awesome it has no weaknesses

Pikachulover1


18Togekiss
She's Overshadowed by Togepi but had okay stats she's stronger looking she's tougher looking and she can kick snivy's ass

quintionshrak8713

Maybe because Togekiss a fully evolved flying type and snivy is a basic grass type...

BeefJesusSupreme


19Venusaur
Venusaur is awesome it is so underrated people like Charizard and Blastoise but Venusaur needs more love it is pretty good so yeah.

20Azumarill
Azumarill is wicked op. With huge power and an immunity to dragon types and a stab priority move, this thing is unstoppable

21Chatot
Has a good 92 Sp. Attack and 91 Speed for a quick special sweeper and access to stat boosting moves like Nasty Plot, and STAB Hyper Voice and Chatter. It also is amazingly cute and lovable with the music theme. The only downside is it's frail defenses make it go down easily, but if you use it right, you can make a great team member out of this little bird.

22Magneton

23Phanpy

24Maractus

25Scyther

26Politoed

27Gallade
Why the hell does Gardevoir have a mega evolution but not Gallade?!

28Jynx
Yeah, I put Jynx on the list! Why? People pick on it for its design! That's just being an ass! Vanilluxe didn't have a nice design, neither did Darmanitan or Ludicolo. And those are at least average Pokemon! So why are you picking on a Generation I Pokemon? I don't care if you hate the design, it's just a coincidence that it looks like an African
American! Second of all, Smoochum is worse because it's a baby Pokemon! Thirdly, Jynx has 115 Special Attack, 95 on Speed and Special Defense! That is really good!
And another thing, Lickitung, Scyther, Magmar and Electabuzz have evolutions! Why doesn't Jynx? Come on Gam'e Freak! It's the strongest of the five! It's the best Pokemon of NU! It has Dry Skin! Give it an evolution, so it becomes popular!

29Whooper
One weakness. Just one. Plus he's like the cutest dang thing on the planet. I have a level 89 quagsire in my party at all times!

30Gliscor
He is tricky and bulky with his poison heal. It might have 4 times weakness to ice, but just teach it sky uppercut and there is a real Pokemon

31Arceus
I'm an arceus fan... So um... Yea... Ok so... what you gonna do about it? Cry to me that's he's overrated?... Yup?. so if you don't like arceus and you play Pokemon and you like to belive your in the game, your kinda, sorta sayn that you don't like the god... Let that sink in... So, imagine somebody coming up to you and sayn " hey, isn't arceus the perfect Pokemon to be a god? "
And then you say " no. I don't LIKE THE GOD"! Umm... Have I got my point yet? Oh, and another thing. If everybody thinks that he's overpowered, well... Would you want your god to be weak as paper? Lets see then... NOW HAVE I GOT MEH POINT RIGHT? Ok?... Good... :D
You may be saying "Arceus!? What? Arceus is overrated! Change the list, you dumbass! " No, sorry I can't. The truth is Arceus isn't overrated, he's underrated. Or more like over-hated. Or under-appreciated. Look, he's in Ubers. Blaziken has a ton of fans, Mewtwo does too, so does Rayquaza, so does Reshiram! But then, look at Arceus! How many fans does he have!? Put your hand up if you're an Arceus fan!
...
I thought you might have done that!
Why is it so hated for NO reason!? Yes, people talk about him a lot. But it's only about how overrated he is! When he isn't! OK, tell me why Arceus is overrated! 5 reasons! I'll give you 5 reasons why he doesn't deserve hate!
*It has the best base stat total in the game (I'm not counting Mega Mewtwo X and Y because Mega's are temporary! )
*You can give it unlimited roles in battle
*It is unstoppable if you let it Swords Dance at least once, because it also carries ExtremeSpeed, Earthquake and Shadow Force! Yeah! Shadow Force!
*One weakness is highly respectable
*He has 18 items he utilizes best for himself in battle!
Fortunately some people know that he's under-appreciated and that keeps him from being #1!

32Delphox
So underrated, people are even mean and rude to its fans.
I'm constantly bashed for having Delphox as my favourite Pokemon, especially by Greninja fans. Delphox is so much better than people make it out to be, seriously.
I think it's overrated.

33Roserade

34Ampharos
Overshadowed by pikachu, emolga, etc.

35Bidoof
I am not putting this as a joke he is NOT the worst Pokemon of all time why does everyone like shedinja then it has 1 heath it can use superpower and sweep whole teams with that move bidoof is the best out of all the gimmicky generic rodent Pokemon that you find early in the game

ikerevievs


36Mandibuzz

37Audino

38Clefable

39Poliwrath
Come on this is a water fighting type with awesome attack @ defense

40Girafarig
Many people think that, just because it looks weak, and I admit it does not have the best stats, but in reality train it right and give it the right moves and Girafarig is awesome! ^-^

41Druddigon

42Sceptile
Yes, the Grass Hoenn starter has been chosen for #1! Sceptile!
Why is it that nobody chooses this thing on their Hoenn games!? Sure, it doesn't have very good moves early on and it has a tricky time against the 3rd ad 4th gyms, but that's why Ground types were invented for!
Sceptile also has very good Special Attack and Speed and it is able to run 4 different movesets making it incredibly difficult to predict! Everyone in Hoenn is either a Blaziken or a Swampert fanboy! I gave them all a try and I have to say Sceptile was the most interesting! It's such a versatile Pokemon and if you use it well, you will kick ass in RU!
Unburden means it will also become faster than Blaziken in one turn.
Why is Blaziken even in Ubers? He only has 80 speed! Sure it's boosted by Speed Boost, but you gotta wait about 3 turns before it becomes incredibly useful! Sceptile can just go one Swords Dance, then BOOM! Aerial Ace! Sceptile has about 3% worse defenses, but at least it doesn't have Close Combat which makes it as frail as Shedinja! And Blaziken takes a ton of set up. Giratina will just go Dragon Tail, ha ha ha!
Well Sceptile is the most underrated I guess, Swampert is in UU and Blaziken Uber! Poor Sceptile, I hope its Mega makes it as usable as it was again!

43Braviary
Yep, another Unova Pokemon. Here's why.
I don't get why Braviary is in NU. Gallade is in RU and he's not as good as Braviary! Braviary has a better movepool, Substitute+Bulk Up is incredibly dangerous and ahem... Defiant. Combine that with Superpower and you will be getting dangerous amounts of attack that will eliminate everything!

44Archeops
Archeops. Archeops is a monster! Although he does have one of the worst Abilities in the game, that doesn't act unless he's under half health. Besides, he learns Roost! He deserves to be in the UU tier!
He's low on the list though, because he has poor defenses and not a lot to say about him!

45Dragonite
Well, Number 1 is Dragonite. Now where do I even start with this guy? Just because he has an Abilty that weakens the power of moves when you're at full health doesn't mean it's invincible. Just because you're a Dragon/Flying type doesn't mean you're going to beat everything. There are still Steel types to block your STAB moves. Just because you have high attack and moderate speed doesn't mean you are going to sweep everybody. Salamence is still much better and Cloyster with Skill Link and Icicle Spear has it dead no matter what. Cloyster also tanks out Dragonite. Salamence is a better mixed sweeper and is faster than Dragonite. Once Dragonite takes a hit when you go last, use a strong priority move and it's done. It gets treated like a god when it really isn't even as powerful as Salamence. Nothing much to say, but bottom line. Dragonite isn't a god.

46Talonflame
Well, it may have an Ability that gives Brave Bird for it priority. But it's not top priority, Pursuit still is with a priority that outspeeds switching. Talonflame only has 81 attack, you need a Choice Band or Swords Dance to make it capable of OHKOing bulky Pokemon. It's great for revenge killing, sure? But that's about all it's useful for. You might as well be using a Mega Kangaskhan with Sucker Punch. It will outspeed Brave Bird. Besides, Talonflame loses half its health just from switching into rocks. Believe me, if this thing didn't get extra priority from Brave Bird, nobody would be using it. And because of that, Rotom Wash would become uncommon. I still think Talonflame has potential, but it needs BL 1, not OU!

47Gyarados
Gyarados is still on OU!? Wow, I get that it's powerful. But considering it a SWEEPER!? With only 81 speed, a sweeper? You need Dragon Dance support with it! Only more than 2 Dragon Dance uses or a Choice Scarf lets it sweep! And people all use Magikarp just as a joke, yet people still call it the worst Pokemon out there. No, you know who's the worst Pokemon out there? UNOWN!

Anyway, Gyarados is popular even with in game trainers. Blue uses it, Clair uses it, Lance uses it, so does Wallace, Cyrus, Crasher Wake and Lysandrae. I mean what the hell, why do so many Trainers use it? And that's only the boss trainers! You will find at least 100 that use it in the whole main series games!
And it barely learns any new moves leveling up! Only 11! Yeah, 11! Why such a random number? Besides, it's 4x weak to Electric! Good luck trying to use it in a Gyarados only run in any game with an Electric gym!
But, it's still great. It just gets too much attention.

48Chansey
My friend says Chansey is way too good as a wall. Yeah, sure it has very impressive special defense and HP stats, but its defense is horrible. He says with proper investment and Eviolite Chansey's defense is good, but let me tell you right now that it just ISN'T! 5 base defense! You think that's good!? And its attack is just as bad as its defense, its special attack is barely better and it relies too much on Toxic and Sesmic Toss to do damage, if you come in with a Breloom they are DEAD! Because they won't have a Focus Sash since they are holding the Eviolite! Blissey can get Leftovers or Focus Sash, so that means it's not reliant on held items to make it bulky! It still is good though, but it deserves BL 1 or UU, not the second best tier out there!
