Best Reasons to Hate Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 The fan base

The fan base for this show and all the other animes are just horrid stupid people. They always curse at you and tell you to kill yourself if you don't like it or if you think American cartoons are better.

So you hate a franchise because of a fanbase?

Dude do NOT ban this list it is epic!

While I kinda agree with this list, half the things on here have to do with the show, so this should be called the best reasons to hate the Pokémon show

2 Boring

Since it's repetitive and it never bothers to change the storyline people who have a good taste in television know that this show got old in 1998 and it shouldn't still be on.

It's the same thing all the time-just throw the ball and a stupid Asian cat hops out. For 15 years

All they do is look for a stupid animal and the noises they make are supper annoying

I hate it Taj Tube watches it all the time delete it

3 It sparked the creation of more animes

Another anime hate-list. And one thing, Pokemon didn't spark the creation of more anime. Anime has been being made from 1970s, and I don't see why a Kids anime show would spark the creation for more anime. And second thing, why would creation of more anime be considered as something bad? That's dumb. - Kiteretsunu

It's a bad thing because we now have more anime fans who mostly consist of complete retards. Pokemon may have not been the first anime but it was the one that popularized it. Pokemon started the anime fad and that's what I meant by that.

I have a life and I also have the right to make list of hating something just as much as someone has the right to like something. - YakkoWakkoDot

Pokemon and anime are a dumb waste of time. Watch Animal Planet or Mythbusters and be educated.

4 It's overrated

Anime nuts always say Pokemon is an amazing show when it is really just a awful show with a bland plot and characters

Yeah, I agree. Literally everyone likes Pokemon. My friend was so addicted and desperate that he asked me if he could play Pokemon on my DS at school

How lame can it get I can't even understand the plot. those fans should get a life.

5 It's stupid

Jessie and James are stupid people they don't changed they just pretending to be nice and charade in this universe

I agree with you pokemon is the best like nothing ever was...

Ash is also stupid like at the first ever episode of pokemon... He is stupid

Get a REAL life asap

6 The fans have no lives

Most Pokemon fans dress up in Pokemon costumes and lip sync the Pokemon theme song. The Pokemon fans see it and cheer him or her on and then saying that this is the greatest thing on YouTube. They also get mad when people dislike those videos or when people dislike Pokemon in general.

True that... I was honestly obsessed with it for a couple months when I was like 7 and I once saw how many 20 and 30 year olds actually still liked this crap. It's fine when your young but you have to mature at some age.

The haters have no lives so F&$@ u a million times

This is on the list. On number one

7 Awful voice-acting

The voice "acting" is horrendous for this show. Everything is badly dubbed and the voice "actors" put no emotion into anything they say, like most animes.

Ash's new voice gets on my nerves. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This a good reason to hate pokemon not by hating the fans

This is something wrong with the anime though this is in the games category... clearly this is everything wrong with the games, but everyone immediately assumed anime.

8 It killed hand-drawn animation

After the focus of animation was being focused on animes, American cartoons had animation provided by flash or CGI.

Actually, that's the princess and the frog. - Skullkid755

Animation is an art, Pokemon isn't. QUOTE

9 Ash doesn't age

How does his age, although annoying, have anything to do with an ENTIRE SERIES ALONE?! - 906389

There is sinister theory that ash doesn't age because he is in a coma. He thinks he is still ten and the whole adventure might just be his coma. - Ahleaxt

Why are you complaining about that? , in lots of shows characters don't ages for more years than Ash. Also isn't ash 11 because in the anime they said he had a birthday?.

In 1998, Ash Ketchum was 10. In 2015, Ash is still 10.

My theory that he doesn't age is because he is dumb and has no willpower to age... Booo...

10 Fosters stupidity of human race

Why would the pocket monsters talk and why would they yell out their name. Charecters are shallow and one-dimensional ( I understand it's a cartoon), the games are good collection games but they are based on the cartoon so the story remains shallow. So we all agreed to go down to the lowest denominator instead of trying to raise people up, to me that fosters human stupidity.

Um, I think you are the rebelious kind of person who will never watch /read / play the series no matter what I say. I guess you would have loved it if you had went with the flow.

1997 is the year when kids just got really stupid. Pokemon just came out then and for some reason most kids loved it. It made the kids who watched it brain dead with the bland animation and the stupid plot with the unoriginal design and names for the little monsters.

11 It's just plain dumb

That is because in the Pokemon world, every body depends on Pokemon. It is just their way of life so leave em be. And by the way not all Pokemon say their names. Ever heard the team rocket Meoth, Togepi etc etc.

True it's just wasting your time

First of all Pokemon only say there names.Its gets tired of hearing pika pika pika! Secondly it doesn't make sense:Mom:Ok honey have fun with that living flamethrower that could kill you bye!

Yeah... Th names of some pokemon are not well thaught of like green ninja... I mean, it doesn't fit in w/ frokey nor froggadear...

12 It's story line sucks

The only thing the hero does is fight gym leaders, elite four, and villainous teams; basically, just fight differently designed and named trainers. WIth no variation whatsoever. They shake it up once in a blue moon with black and white, but are too lazy to build on it and go back to the same old gym leader plot.

13 Every game is the same

The formula hasn't been changed in a significant way in 30 years. And no, that does not mean they got it flawlessly on their first try you idiotic fanboys. It means their fanbase has made them immune to change.

15 It's a Minecraft mod now

Not everybody did. I am 100% sure on that. And let me get this straight. You hate Pokemon because Minecraft made it more popular?!? Oh ya, just for the sake of it, why not we mention the People who Eat Tasty Animals also? (PETA)

Some jackass though it would be a good idea to make a Pokemon mod in Minecraft. They did and now it's even more popular. It also doesn't help it that Minecraft YouTubers always reference it because it was there childhood. Please, Pinky And The Brain was out during that time too yet you choose to reference a piece of overrated garbage

What? So this is a good reason to hate something fans did?

16 Because it copied Magic: The Gathering

Pokemon is a completely different thing than Magic

I absolutely agree. I don't understand people who compare this show with digimon either.

17 It has a dark side to it

Jessie & James and meowth they have a dark side there not friendly I don't care they changed way can ash just leave them along to die and be a friend's there enemies and you know it

It forces animals to fight, stuffs them in a ball, feeds them ONE nasty berry a day then claims himself has a Pokemon trainer. That's animal abuse.

What the hell do ya mean ba drugs?

Promotion of animal abuse, forced animal fighting, and steroids.

18 People have their Pokemon fight for them

Look, just give the kid a katana, teach them how to use it, and give them a Pokemon, and they will be fine. Chaz from fantasy star iv was able to kill Dark Force (A badazz version of Dark Matter) even thougb he was only a few years older than the Pokemon protaganist! And don't give me no crap like "he had Elydsion", or "He was being helped by a cat-girl, a wizard, a robot, and someone else", because that's what in talking about! I don't expect an 11 year old to go balls to the wall against Arceus, but I AM saying to get powerful Pokemon to help!

But what about the wild encounters? If this ten-year-old kid didn't have a Pokémon to protect them, they'd be dead.

19 Never Ends

Other anime ends but Pokemon keeps on going on and on. It's so ANNOYING. It's probably because it needs to get more fans.

20 Inspired Smosh

As we all know, Smosh singing the Pokemon theme song is what got them popularity because people are just stupid. They aren't funny and it just started another bunch of idiots on YouTube who were trying to hard to be funny and just made disgusting, stupid jokes.
