Worst Pokemon CharactersPikachulover1 This list describes the dumbest, most unpopular Pokemon Characters. I totally/partly hate all of these.
The Top TenXW
Serena is boring. Extremely girly, cooking pastries, into fashion, dressing up, dressing up her Pokemon... I've seen Dawn do this in Sinnoh. What's worse is how her current interest has nothing to do with battling, the core element of Pokemon. Pokemon performers seem really sexist. First of all it's females only. A gender specific competition in Pokemon is odd. Secondly, again, there's no battling. It's like the creators were thinking "Oh. Boys only battle. Girls like to dress up, look cute and dance." Again, somewhat sexist.
Even though I don't "hate" Serena I wanted to share a few things that nobody really noticed. This is more of an observation than anything else.Besides Serena being a walking female stereotype, a problem with Serena that not a lot of people talk about is her lack of contribution to the plot. Have you ever noticed when Ash is running his mouth off to characters of the day, Serena just stands there saying nothing and just looking bored? Or when Team Rocket shows up, she just cuddles Bonnie like Bonnie's life support or stands in the background waiting for Ash to solve the problem? The only things that she says is how great Ash is or just exposition. One thing that I also noticed about Serena is that her personality is very inconsistent. In most episodes she'll be a background character just standing there and talking exposition. But when there's a "Serena focused" episode, her personality completely changes. She always has this determined look plastered on her face ...more
In all my years of Pokemon, never have I seen such a useless character. Every one of Ash's companions were unique, and they had original designs and personalities. Serena is just a stereotype barbie doll. All she ever does is think about looking pretty and getting Ash's attention. Everyone says that Dawn and Misty served no purpose and that they were stereotypes. Are you kidding me!? Misty was a cool tomboy who would put on nice clothes every now and then. And sure, Dawn was a girly-girl but unlike a stereotype girly-girl Dawn only put on special clothes to look feminine, not to show off. And unlike the other pokegirls, Serena had no special design. Strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, sound familiar? Not only that but Serena's goal was super stupid. A Pokemon performer? All they do is dress-up and show-off their Pokemon. They don't even show the true point of the show, battling. If you all noticed, Ash, Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, and Cilan's goals all had something to do with ...more
Misty is both tomboyish and girly-girl. She's like an in-between. - yungstirjoey666
What why is she on here?
Are you blind or something? There's more than 500 comments on this item stating why she is an atrocious character, and all you can say is why is she on here? What the heck is wrong with you? - ModernSpongeBobSucksV523 Comments
"You're such a kid! " No Iris, YOU'RE the kid. Yelling at Ash because he got six gym badges is so immature. I'd like to see you do it! - Pikachulover1
The only reason I ever here someone hating iris for is her phrase "what a kid" or variations on that phrase ignoring that phrase I never here anything else negative about her. People are probably going to hate me for this but I think she was a breath of fresh air I mean after 2 regions of having the girl be coordinator it was nice to see something different and addressing her catchphrase she's calling ash out for things the fans have made jokes about for years if anything serena is worse because the only thing she has above iris is her past relationship with ash. If you don't like iris that's fine there are reasons to dislike her maybe you find her voice annoying all I'm asking is that you put your nostalgia for misty behind you and judge iris without nostalgic bias clouding you if you still dislike Iris after doing that well that's fine I'm not going to judge you as a person because I'm sure you're a nice person in real life (making personal judgements of people because their ...more - Gamer4life
Ever since she caught Dragonite, she's become a failure. I truly with that she will leave and never come back, or at least have Georgia get her revenge on her.
Iris is a good pokemon trainer and that is no question because she is champ in one of the games. Although, once you beat her, she is terrible and bratty.V110 Comments
Ash is the koopalings of Pokemon. Both offer the same pathetic thing with just a different look. The koopalings are garbage characters/bosses who do the same "recycle the boss with a different, lame koopaling skin" routine. Ash is a pathetic trainer who does the same thing of struggling to collect the badges, struggling with the same type of Pokemon in fire/grass/water/regional bird/Pikachu and he ultimately loses at the league while wearing a different outfit. Same crap, different look.
Ash is completely illogical. He tosses his Pokemon aside like old toys just to capture substitutes who present new problems for him to struggle with. In every series Ash has a competitive goal, but he's not fully dedicated to it. He spends more time eating and being distracted by random problems which have nothing to do with his goal. To top things off we don't know why Ash even wants to become a Pokemon master. Does he want to follow in his father's footsteps? Does he want to achieve something his father could not? Perhaps there's some kind of benefit of being a Pokemon master which would help his family? We don't know!
I didn't mind Ash in the first few seasons, but as much as I disliked when his friends got replaced there was a reason for that: You need new blood. For a series this long, and this light-hearted, you need to keep the characters interesting and Ash has lost ALL interest for me. It feels like the show's gone from "Adventures of Ash and his Friends" to "Adventures of Ash and his Groupies that are Only There to Tell us How AMAZING he Is! " He's stale, has no real flaws, no character development, hardly a personality anymore, and I can't even remember the last time I really saw him WORK for something.
But that's not why I hate Ash the most, the reason he annoys me so much is most prevalent in the movies: HE IS THE BIGGEST MARY SUE/GARY STU CHARACTER I HAVE EVER SEEN! And I DON'T say that lightly!
Every movie has become the same thing; "Watch Ash be the chosen one (again) and save the world while befriending ALL the legendary Pokemon with no effort ...more
How is Ash a Gary Stu? He can't win an official Pokemon league after 20 years. Meanwhile with Gary who had a cheerleader squad and a Corvette at the age of 10. - yungstirjoey666
I hate ash faceV159 Comments
Cilan may be annoying, but hating him because he replaced Brock is stupid. We all know Brock had to leave but it wasn't just because he stayed so long, it's because of Ash. Why I say that is because Ash is the only child, and he lives alone with his mother so he had no father figure whatsoever. But after he met Brock, Ash kinda started depending on Brock for everything. He looked up to him as a role model and even began taking on some of his personality traits. Eventually though, Ash started to mature, and then grew into his own character which stated giving him not much of big need to depend on him. So he left not only to become a Pokemon doctor but also because he knew Ash could handle things on his own unless he met new friends. And besides, when Ash met Cilan, Cilan didn't really act as a brother or father but more of a close friend. He may have not have as big of a relationship, but he was still important to the plot. And if they hadn't created Cilan, the viewers would've gotten ...more
"I'm a stupid Conessuier! Oh my gosh its a movie! A train! A piece of pizza! " Grr... I hate this dude! There's the stupid "evaluation" and all the references to food! Who cares if your a stupid A- Class Conessuier! It's the dumbest life goal in the history of all time! - Pikachulover1
Conessuier, the worst goal in all existence. Not only does it require to act like a know-it-all jerk... just what the heck is the point of it? Just looking back on what he's said about Ash's Pokemon in their first battle, I wouldn't be surprised that he said those mean things to Burgundy's Pokemon. All this kid does is OBSESS over every little thing, because his real goal is that bland. Dudes worse than most fangirls of anything.
And the awful "Evaluation time! " or whatever... Is this show trying to get 5 year olds interested or something?
Cilan is not as bad as ash or iris I guessV73 Comments
"Oh why did Misty leave, she was awesome! " "The older show is better than the new show! " "Go die in a hole May and Dawn, and other female characters! We hate you! "
Do you know how whiny, bratty, and immature this sounds? I mean, some of the Misty fans are constantly complaining over a cartoon character's departure, and that's stupid. I mean, come on! Not only that, but they want to act like she was a perfect and pretty tomboy and crap like that. Dude, Misty was as far from tomboyish as you can get. She always insisted on going shopping, she was scared of harmless bugs, and she would always pick and choose which Pokemon and humans she was nice to. Are you kidding me? That's not tomboyish, that is snobby and stuck-up. All the other females were original (well, except for Serena) and they had their own qualities that made them very likable. I mean, May was sweet and tomboyish, Dawn was optimistic and playful, and Iris was athletic and headstrong. ...more
Misty acts like she's a perfect tomboy when she's not. A tomboy is a girl who likes sports, dirt, wearing loose clothing, and hanging out with boys. Misty only cared about looking pretty, romance, hitting her friends, and using her sisters as a lame excuse of why she did it. Not only that but she wore too many revealing clothes when she was only ten-years-old. Bikinis, small tank tops, short-shorts? That's not tomboyish, that's just hillbilly. Plus, the most annoying thing about her is that Togepi. Ash nearly got hurt when he found the egg, Brock stayed up day and night to take care of the egg, and even Meowth treated it like a baby before it hatched. What did Misty do? Nothing. She just stole it from them and babied it to death. When Ash got Phanpy it helped it to grow stronger and Brock did the same with Bonslide. And the thing about it is, they kept them in poke balls. Misty on the other hand just carried her baby around so she could look cute. May was sort of tomboyish, Dawn was ...more
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.
The best series was black and white or indigo league. If you hate misty, then you hate the original.V116 Comments
All I ever hear is people saying that Paul is such a great rival man he is not. Unlike most of a Ash's rivals, Paul did noting but abuse and abandon is Pokemon because they weren't "good enough". All of Ash's rivals cared for their Pokemon and supported them so they could do their best. And even though Gary would tease Ash a bunch it was just a friendly rivalry to prove who was better and even despite this Gary still loved his Pokemon. Paul on the other just yelled at them to do better, even when they trained their hardest? That's messed up.
I agree. It would be a different story if Paul was written to eventually treat his Pokemon with love and care similar to how they develop Silver in the games. - Ruee
Paul should be the number one most hateable Pokemon character because he was nothing but an abuser!
He never treated his Pokemon as friends! Only objects of power... which is a shame.
And every time when ash says something nice and positive about Pokemon being friends, he just says the word Pathetic! That always gets on my nerve!
But of course, there are moments that totally gave us satisfaction, like paul loosing a battle against the awesome powerful Cynthia
And what about the battle of paul against the pyramid king? That battle was just satisfying! Paul loosing while the pyramid king hasn't lost any Pokemon.
But yet ash feels bad for paul. I didn't even felt bad for him, HE DESERVED TO LOOSE!
Paul should be #1. All Paul did was abuse and abandon his Pokemon if they weren't powerful or "good enough". When I first saw Paul, I hated him from the start. I hated him because unlike all of Ash's rivals, he uses Pokemon for power instead of becoming friends with them. All of Ash's rivals loved their Pokemon, no matter what. Paul on the other hand just called them weak and pathetic every time he loses or in some cases, wins a battle.
Paul in general is rather conflicting when discussed. He's a bad character who treats his Pokemon poorly and never learns to love them properly like Silver has in the games, but at the same time, he gave the best rivalry to Ash as it was extremely personal and caused Ash to do everything he can to better himself. His existence is a double edged sword.V43 Comments
Personally, I remember despising Dawn at first. And why was that? Stupid propaganda and shippers that's what. With everyone commenting on how /awful/ and /useless/ Dawn was, I didn't really know any better and I agreed. It wasn't until I started watching the DP series that I understood how not awful and useless Dawn was.
Dawn is one of my favorite Pokemon characters up to date. And no, it wasn't because she was pretty or anything, but it was the character development she's been through. Unlike May, who managed to succeed in everything last minute (forgive me if I'm wrong, it's been a while since I watched the advanced gen, and I do like May thank you very much), I loved how Dawn was pretty much set to fail during the beginning. It showed that contests weren't easy. You had to work hard to reach your goals. And I believe that the writers did a great job with that for Dawn. During the beginning of her journey Dawn was overly confident, and determined to be a Top Coordinator. She ...more
I hate how everyone dislikes Dawn so much. I mean, just because she wears short skirts, does feminine things (like a girl is supposed to), and likes cute Pokemon, everybody hates her.
(1) There is nothing wrong with wearing mini-dresses when your a girl. Like how there is nothing wrong with a girl wearing shorts and crop-tops (yeah, if Misty can do it, so can Dawn, there just being feminine)
(2) As I said early, there's nothing wrong with a girl being feminine. Not all girls are tomboys. And besides, I don't think Dawn's all that girly. I mean, she says words like "awesome" and "cool", catches really strong Pokemon (Mamoswine, Quilava), has natural athletic abilities, and has the ability to defend herself like Misty and Iris.
(3) Some of you see where I'm getting at with my examples. Now listen, as you can tell, all the female companions have a thing for cute Pokemon, but for some reason all of the fans only get mad at Dawn because of it. I mean, come on, it's a ...more
It saddens me how Dawn is so high up on this list just because she's girly and beat May and does contests just like May too. I love May, but just because she was the first coordinator does not mean Dawn is automatically worse than her or a horrible character. Unlike Serena she did not cry over her first loss. After losing three times she cried but quickly got back up because she realized that it would not change anything and that she needs to work hard and be determined. This is character development. After realizing what she was doing wrong, she learned from her mistakes and was able to beat May using that knowledge. At least she did not cut her hair and change her whole look thinking that will change everything (which by the way it does not) I also don't like the fact that people hate on her because of her style of clothing. Like have you seen Misty in some episodes? She shows more than Dawn ever had but no everyone still thinks it's fine for her to wear more revealing clothes BUT ...more
Dawn did cry a little bit with her first loss. But she immediately stopped after her mom told her that won't fix anything and she needs to talk it out with her friends and pokemon. - Ruee
She is not that bad I mean look at serena and irisV82 Comments
This French bitch is utterly pathetic, having never won a single battle in her life and losing four.
Does she know how to not YELL!? Why the heck did she have to bother Ash to get rid of his Pokemon? Nothing likable about her at all.
Yeah. Because everyone wants a female version of Cilan. This is why Pokemon has become lame over the years. Absolutely unneccessary characters. This list is living proof. - Pikachulover1

Oh come this girl shouldn't even be on this list. She needs to have her one website about how stupid and annoying she is. But then her stupidity would probably cause the Internet to crash. Bianca grow up and then you can be a trainer but you have a mind of a five year old but then again a five year old is probably smarter than you.
I want to drop kick her in the face, she's so annoying. I seriously can't stand her always running around like a stupid, blonde airhead.
I like it when Ash get pushed, rushed and everything else. Lets face it, Bianca had way better Pokemon in the games than Ash will ever use, and there fore he should be replaced. And lets face it, Bianca had an awesome personality too.
She was featured like 5 times! Give her a chance!V26 Comments
Revenge over a stupid cookie is one thing, but to hold a grudge over years and taking it out on a girl who only looked like the one who stole it? Talk about pathetic. All he does is get butt-hurt over May beating him, and no matter how many times May is willing to forgive him, he NEVER can. He's so sad that he dresses up as a little girl. Really, a baby outfit would be a better suit for him since that's what he all acted like. It's surprising he even had a friend (Solidad) from how huge of a self-centered prick he was.
Harley is just stupid. He has a vendetta against a girl just because she said his cookie wasn't 'half-bad'. I mean come on. A cookie. She wasn't trying to be mean. He acts like a three year old. OH, YOU POOR BABY, MAY HATED YOUR COOKIE! GROW THE HELL UP, HARLEY! - TwilightKitsune
I hate this guy the only thing he ever does is hold vendettas against May and tries to sabotage her every minute. So she's better than you at contests, get over it you lunatic. And wear something NORMAL for a change!
This guy is the worstV21 Comments
Who's idea was it to put Meowth on this list? I swear, a show with Meowth as the main character would be a thousand times more watchable than another predictable Ash Ketchum "adventure".
Of all things, why A TALKING MEOWTH THAT sucks?! HIS TERRIBLENESS IS ALMOST FUNNY, AND SAME FOR HIS FACE!V1 Comment
GET RID OF THIS STUPID BRAT, man she is the worst ever, her voice is annoying and she deserves to die, no one is more worse then her in anime history, no one!, Seriously I love Pokemon but these characters just make me hate it, including Ash, he used to be cool but now he's just weird in a annoying way, before he was weird in a funny way
"I'd say she's a breath of fresh air compared to know-it-all whiny brat Max"
I'd say it's the other way if around you ask me. I mean, sure Max is annoying but at least he was kind of nice and not so hyperactive all the time. Bonnie on the other hand acted wild and stupid. I know she's just a little kid but that's no excuse. They act like they have to make the series about stereotypical females. All the other years we had a competitive tomboy, sweet coordinator, cheerful girly-girl, and a wild jungle girl. In other words, unique females. Now, we have a ten-year-old barbie doll, and pint sized idiot.
I don't know what you guys expect a little girl (younger than ten) to do and be like.
Honestly, do you believe most ten year olds are calm, not hyperactive, don't bag for things, play around, etc...? I'd say she's a breath of fresh air compared to know-it-all, whiny brat Max who threw a fit over a friend beating his dad fair and squire. She can't have Pokemon yet, so it's going to be obvious that she isn't going to be able to do much at all. But I'd say for a child she really isn't that bad or obnoxious. I can say I can do without the 'hay older woman marri mi bro! ' gag but really the anime has always thrown in annoying gags/lines since the beginning of time and I've learned to ignore it really and it's not done often defiantly not as much as Brock's ear pull/poison jab one those were never funny (no, they weren't) but people don't hate Brock or Max or Misty or Crogank for that. =/
I expect a little girl to not be insane and want to run off constantly.V52 Comments
Cameron is a completely unnecessary character. Him being an idiot and being good at battles was already done by Bianca, only better. And after he beat Bianca in the Unova League, that's when I began to hate him.
He is one of worst Ash's rivals ever! I was very disappointed when he became so stupid! I wanted him to be like Ritchie and not an idiot cheater. - Nectaria
What can you say about Cameron he's as idiotic as they come. I mean he doesn't know that you have to have 8 gym badges to get in the Pokemon league and that a full battle consists of six Pokemon. He ain't no trainer he's a laughing stock. But I gotta say he does add a lot of character to the show. He just needs to figure out how to use it right.
He beat ash With 5 pokemon anyone could beatV20 Comments
LOL! A country flag representing a Pokemon character was one of the funniest things I have seen on this list! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This girl is annoying as hell. She's rude and eats other people's food. She's like a cross between Harley and Ursula, she become a "Dragon Buster" just because she got beaten in a land where dragon Pokemon live. Please. And then every time she loses a match she'll be like "It's not a dragon type so it doesn't count." That girl is freakishly obsessing over dragon type Pokemon
LOL I love how someone chose the country instead of the character - NobodyFamous

My opinion james is good at heart it's just the decisions that he made were bad in my mind james actually likes Pokemon and if he would just get away from those two big mouths he could have a great future I mean come on who wants to spend their whole life blasting off time and time again
Really? I know TRio has lost their charm over the years and are just useless nowadays, but seriously he's nowhere near the worst get him off here!
Oh jessi! This is boring! I don't want to be on this list!

No one cares about what your name is Stephen! You say you want to change your name but if you do, it will still be spelled the same way! It will still be pronounced wrong! Get over it! - Pikachulover1

Stephen was the only rival in the Black and White saga that I could actually tolerate... - Ruee
That annoying grinV6 Comments
Very obnoxious & stupid. At least Pikachu has shown that he can deal with Team Rocket on his own. But this self-centered dumbass only knows how to scream when given a chance to show itself to Team Rocket. And it so friken bratty & mostly remains bratty though out the show. To this day I'm confused as to why she didn't choose Turtwig over that brat since how Piplub acted around Dawn. Also his reason for not wanting to evolve is the most stupid and illogical reason to not want to evolve ever. Seriously, just cause you evolved how would that magically make Dawn forget the moment they meet?
I give credit where credit is due piplup is strong but it needs grow up and stop acting like a spoiled little brat. It's started a lot of fights with a lot of Pokemon because it doesn't like anyone ruining its pride or just for stupid reasons
Dawn is a good character, but no offense to her, but her Piplup is mean. It is a brat in my opinion. I can't even tell wether it's a boy or a girl.
This is a pokemon. Not a pokemon companion.V15 Comments
I don't agree, Jessie had a bad life, I'm pretty sure her dad died and her mom disappeared trying to catch Mew. She was taken into an orphanage that was so broke she ate snow. She grew up and wanted to be a nurse but failed cause the school was for Chanseys. She meet James at Pokemon tech and got the worst score ever (with James. ) She is also mistreated by guys. She had a awful life that made her the way she is today, her and Misty is the most realistic.
Everyone compares Jessie to Misty when the two are actually different. Yeah, they are both tsunderes but, unlike Misty, Jessie had a bad life. And I know what you're saying "They both had terrible lives." Actually no, Misty just grew up with sisters who teased her every now and then. I mean, I know how it feels but that's no excuse to go around beating people up. Jessie on the other hand grew up in an orphanage and was forced to eat snow and mess like this. Not only that, but Jessie's a villain, which doesn't make her personality that strange. But Misty, you're a hero, so act like it!
Jessie is the only female character on this show I dislike. Sure you may say "but Dawn and Iris are annoying! " Those two may be annoying, but Jessie definitely takes the cake. She's rude, bossy, and completely domineering towards her teammates James and Meowth. She may be the reason why I don't like watching the Team Rocket trio that much.
Uncle Jesse from Full House is a hack. Seriously, though, I like Full House and Arby n' the Chief.V34 Comments
He's more competent than Ash as a trainer but he is so BORING TO WATCH. He's so dull, bland, and predictable because you know the outcome of pretty much all of battles. He wins. That's it. That's all you get. He only lost like 2 times I think and if he beats Ash, then that would make things worse for him. He's such a Gary Stu, the Tobias 2.0 if you want to get real of how much he easily defeats almost everyone he makes eye contact with. Ash if you have to lose to Alain because the writers don't want you to win leagues most of the time, don't beat only 2 of his Pokemon. I beg of yo u.. y ou can do better.
"We are making this character way too overpowered for the audience to like, don't you think? " "Don't worry, we gave him a Charizard as his main Pokemon, the most overrated Pokemon next to Pikachu." "That's genius! Everyone loves Charizard! " - Ruee
And yes guys, I really dislike Alain. I'm not impressed by him at all and his fan service baiting Charizard doesn't phase me. - Ruee
Am I the only one that doesn't care for his bond with marron? It's so shoe-horned I can't even take it seriously! I get they only had 5 episodes to work with, but it's like after episode 1 ( when they met) they suddenly became so close they do anything for each other. Yuck!
He told Ash "I can't win" when Ash wanted to battle him again...UM...Alain...you... BEAT ASH IN THE LEAGUE? - RueeV21 Comments
Gary, Misty, and Brock shouldn't be on here. And come on guys, give Team Rocket a little credit. They've been after Pikachu for 17 years and still haven't given up. At least be impressed by their determination. - Pikachulover1
No. Get Gary off of here. He's awesome. Seriously.
I have no problem with gary what so ever. There's nothing wrong with a friendly rivalry. And him and ash are prime examples. Now look at him he's a Pokemon researcher now and I think it's pretty cool. I couldn't think of anyone better that would be a cooler researcher than gary.
Really? Gary Oak is awesome, even though he is not nice. Oh wait, meet him in the battle tree of Gen 7 and SEE FOR YOURSELVES (HE IS SO NICE THERE)V40 Comments
Are you serious, charizard should not even be on this list. Ok charizard didn't exactly listen to ash at first but that was due to ash's lack of experience at the time. Now he and charizard are almost as close as he and pichachu are. So in my opinion charizard on this list is like saying that a magikarp is the most powerful Pokemon of all time. Seriously this is worst choice on this list that I have seen
Heh, I bet the people who put Charizard on this list never watched past season 1. Charizard is definitely one of Ash's best and most reliable Pokemon these days, he shouldn't be here.
No way should he be here.. This guy is the main reason I love charizard so much! He's definitely one of ash's best Pokemon
Charizard makes the series more watchable. WHY is he even on this list?V26 Comments
