Most Underrated Pokemon

The Top TenXW

1Raichu

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. - anythingispossible

I get it, it is way better than pikachu but people thinks pikachu is better because anime. But that doesn't make raichu underrated, pikachu is the second most overrated Pokemon, second only to charizard, the definition of overrate in Pokemon. In fact, I think it is overrated since some people think it is strong just because it is the evolution of pikachu.

I don't hate Pikachu but poor Raichu. People look at Pikachu, not Raichu. All the time. Raichu boasts some pretty impressive capabilities, including the ability to carry over almost everything Pikachu could do. But Raichu is often forgotten. He started the trend of being a rejected evolution.

Raichu just got better becoming Psychic and looking like a surfer bro (Sun and Moon)

2Chesnaught

This thing is a murderer. CHESNAUGHT FOREVER! As soon as I saw Chespin in January 2013, I knew I wanted him. - Goatworlds

Yeah, I only know about two other people that like Chesnaught. I mean, they're probably my least favourite starter from Pokemon X and Y, but I'm still happy to have them! - Shiverfeather

Chesnaught is very underrated - anythingispossible

Old man design

3Magmortar

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.

Magmortar is awesome and due who said no one cares about magmortar except you and your friend I am with you but I still think Electivire is better

Actually one of the best fire type Pokemon out there.

Bow down to the evolution of the true god of pokemon! - ABBCC

4Luxray

Luxray is one of the best electric times, even with a limited move pool. However, it's lack of promotion and under usage makes it under rated :(

How is it underrated... It is overrated. Somebody said it is the best electric Pokemon.. Why? I mean he said it has a limited movepool, which is true, but he still think it is the best for like no reasons. The only good thing about luxray is 120 attack, intimidate and hidden ability of guts, ok coverages and that's it. It has a terrible speed of 70 and 80/79/79 isn't too good. As a bulky Pokemon it also lacks a recovery move. Why do people think it is underrated

Stop hating on luxray he is not overrated he just has a good design people recognise that although he is definitely not underrated so why is he on this list

Not so sexy stats for a sexy pokemon

5Vileplume

Come teeter dance poisoning I have a vileplume that can OHKO so many Pokemon or just use it to induce rage into my opponents

Everyone hates this guy but because of him erikas gym in the 1st gen was the only one I struggled with other than the recovering alakazam

6Walrein

Icy tank that 1hits any tough dragons, lots of health high special attack and defense stats what more could you want from a lovable bundle of flubba

Walrein served me well in 3d gen and I also had one in white 2 :) a wall with good moves plus cool design

7Emboar

Emboar is actually overrated look at all the kids at my school who pick Tepig over anything else... - Goatworlds

My Emboar has been with me for around 4 years, at level 100.

I was going to vote for Raichu, but...Emboar stole my vote. Oshawott is my favorite Pokémon, and Snivy is one of them too, and the Tepig line also is one of my favorites. All three starters are one of favorites. If I could only have 6 Pokémon, it would be Oshawott, Bulbasaur, Snivy, Tepig/Emboar, and any other two Pokémon. Poor Emboar, even if I like the other two better (which makes it more underrated) I still like the Tepig line.

He is so beast

8Gothitelle

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

It is a great a Pokemon and should get more respect. It is a gardevoir with bulk

It has shadow tag, but people still don't like it.

9Mawile

How is mawile underrated? Do you guys even see the praise it gets online? And for good reason, mega mawile has huge power which doubles it's attack. I literally beat the elite four in oras with only mega mawile

Mawile needs love its sad! GameFreak made the biggest improve on a Pokemon ever in X & Y: new typing, new moves and... A OP MEGA EVOLUTION! But then, people still don't like it...

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. ...more

10Venusaur

Everyone always chooses Charizard, but I pick Venusaur because I know it has a decent move pool, awesome special attack and special defense stats, and Mega Venusaur can really take a hit with thick fat.

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

Lets all agree that grass Pokemon need more love

Venusaur's a lot better than Charizard for competitive battles. - noo7na7

The Contenders

11Relicanth

Relicanth can be an surprisingly tough tank when used properly, and I have frustrated many a random people in random battles with the combo of stealth rock and toxic!

Relicanth is an amazing Pokemon in my opinion and doesn't really get too much praise, and I have to admit, it's shiny is beautiful in a sense I can't explain

12Serperior

I chose tepig as my starter, and I was happy when evolved into an funny (yet cute) looking Pignite, and then to a powerful Emboar. Serperior, though, has a really awesome design! It looks so fancy and slick. Like teach it Energy Ball, Dragon Pulse (if you have ORAS), Glare (through breeding), and Leech Seed! Or Leaf Blade, Coil, Aqua Tail (ORAS tutor), and Leech Seed! This pokemon is pretty underrated in my opinion

This is my favorite Pokemon for nostalgia reasons, but I don't think it's underrated. In fact, I've never met anyone who hates Serperior.

I love serperior but it's underrated and overhated

YES. Serperior should seriously be on emboar's spot.

13Sableye

Sableye is where it's at, not effected again 3 times and most moves barely tough it besides fairy. Plus with its mega evolution and the massive defense upgrade this tank of a Pokemon can't be killed

I wouldn't say underrated, but he's still very cool. I don't care about bad opinions.

14Chatot

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.

It's adorable, powerful, and a bit of a troll. Why isn't it further up?

With access to Boomburst and Heat Wave, Chatot isn't completely terrible. I think it deserves to be noticed more.

15Spinda

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

The master of confusion. Shame about its stats, though.

17VolbeatVolbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

Volbeat is pretty underrated. Because of its Tail Glow Volbeat can be used as a sweeper or a nice Baton Passer, think about it guys.

I feel really bad I stared at this and said 'what the hell is a volbeat'

What picture is that? Cool, but still. - Goatworlds

18Arceus

True because how exactly is Arceus overrated? This guy has more haters than lovers, trust me. People are only calling this thing overrated because of its power. Ironically, mainly fanboys of Mew/Mewtwo are attacking this thing, and although I do like Mew and Mewtwo, they, as with any other Gen 1 Pokemon that's famous, could be considered overrated. At least this guy gets love from those who go on battle spot with over-powered teams. Also, guess what? For all you Mewtwo fans, Mewtwo now has two mega evolutions that have higher base-stat totals than this guy, so there you go.

Why would the GOD OF ALL Pokemon be underrated. it just doesn't make a speck of sense.

Its not underrated IT IS THE MOST POWERFUL Pokemon IN ALL GAMES EXCEPT MEGAS you idiots

Arceus is more overrated.

19Mime Jr.

He is actually decent using mimic which is pretty strong, he is better when he was a good trainer, unlike James from the anime

20CharizardCharizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

So many people think it's overrated that it's underrated. - Goatworlds

Its not underrated yet its declining in popularity and will be underrated in a couple decade but not yet

Ugh... This used to be the god of the franchise (alongside Mewtwo and Pikachu) and then that damn Satoshi Gekkouga came along. I don't hate Gekkouga, but this sexy dragon needs some love to.
