Top 10 Worst Pokemon

The useless pokemon can be found in the list below.

The Top TenXW


I can't believe that this isn't #1. Unown is the worst Pokemon. It has the terrible base stat total of 336 - and that's not even the worst part. Its only move is Hidden Power, which every Pokemon that can learn a TM can learn. It's also a pretty crappy. The move is Normal-type, which means that it's impossible to land a super-effective hit on any Pokemon, and its power ranges from 30-70, depending on IVs. Magikarp's movepool is pretty bad, but at least it can learn Tackle and Splash, and recently, Flail and Bounce. That's still a bad movepool, but not as bad as Unown. Unown is also a pain in the games. You have 28 variants of Unown to catch, and usually, there's no reward worth your time. And, for design critics, Unown's design is honestly extremely bland. It's a letter of the alphabet, or a punctuation mark. Woo. There is absolutely NO reason to use Unown at all in battle. Worst Pokemon ever.

Why isn't this fella at #1? Unown is hands down the worst Pokemon. Ever. Sure, Magikarp is weak, but isn't it obvious why I think he's better? Do I really need to say it? Anyways, Unown can only learn one move, being Hidden Power. It'd be cool it was only exclusive to Unown, but nope! Every single ' Pokemon can learn it!

Unown is the #1 worst Pokemon ever! The designers of the first game obviously created them as a joke! "Hey guys wanna hear something funny? Let's create a Pokemon based on the alphabet! What's more funny is the crappy moves, no evolving and you can't teach them TM's! " At least magikarp evolved into the total beast Pokemon known as Gyrados! Gyrados was a TANK when Red, Blue and Yellow first came out! And that's why unown needs to be the worst

Unown is useless, there is no point in catching it because it has more than 20 different forms, and they can only learn one move: Hidden Power, that all Pokemon can learn!

I am a Magikarp believer. I think Magikarp is a great pokemon because it represents the importance of patience. If you work hard, and are PATIENT, you won't be the loser with the magikarp. You'll be the AWESOME PERSON with the GYRADOS. Seriously, you guys are total haters. Magikarp only has to reach level 20 to evolve, you just have to believe in it. (And fight a bunch of Metapod

Come on he's the best pokemon ever! His only move isn't splash he can also learn tackle and flail he also evolves to a beastly pokemon plus he can learn bounce how badass is that?!

This Pokemon was meant to be a joke, only knowing splash< the most useless Pokemon move as a fact. But aside from that, Magikarp learns Tackle at level 15, but it's still not good because of it's poor attack stat, then at level 30 it learns Flail, even at 1 HP it doesn't do squat. And if that's not enough, at the beginning of Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there's a Magikarp that fisherman has that takes way too long to kill.

The only thing that might equal Magikarp's crappiness is Feebas, but both turning into the monster of the ocean and the beauty of the sea, Feebas evolves into Milotic, and Magikarp evolving into Gyarados. And that's my opinion on Magikarp and a little of Feebas.

It has the best evolution but its horrible

This is the WORST EVER pokemon and its name is stupid. Example-
Guy-so what should we call it?
Namer-i know lets call it luvdisk because its shaped like a heart!
Guy- that's the best idea EVER.

Oh my god
This is the most pointless annoying terrible pokemon in the game
Why the hell would anyone want to catch one of these worthless stupid heart shaped thing?

I honestly don't even go towards the thought of getting one... When I find one it would just be to kill it or just say "Oh there's a luvdisc" and just run

Yeah of all Pokemon this one teaks the cake

Silly Gamefreak... Nikki Minaj isn't a pokemon...

Why? Just why would they make this abomination?!?!

Crappy and every time I look at it I want to kill it

Jinx is an offense to girls

A wild bidoof has appeared.

2 seconds later... A wild bidoof has appeared
And so on - wolphert

Only good for an HM slave. Would never use it on my team, ever. Besides, it's really ugly too...

I once had a pokemon platinum. When I started, I caught both starly and bidoof as my first 2 pokemon. I got starly to level 18 and evolved it before I traded it in for tropicus. I stopped using bidoof when he was level three.

My dad said it looked like a platypus made out of poop.

Yup. Harden. He can harden. Wow, does he have any attacks? No? He just "hardens" himself. Great pokemon -_-

The only thing Metapod is good for is pissing people off. Get it up to level 100, give it a defense booster, and use harden until the other team runs out of moves. And should Metapod be almost defeated? Ful heal time!

Metapod used HARDEN! Because he can't learn anything else, it would be impossible to evolve this pokemon alone.

I was so happy when my Metapod evolved, I actually waisted all my rare candy on him right when he evolved into Metapod.

Horrible type, awkward stats, terrible design, and THAT CRY.

The reason why it lives in water is because it want to die. Guess what: It's WEAK to water. And it's found in water. It's ugly. And has a horrible cry. And for all the existing reasons.

The foe sent out Stunfisk FART NOISE! Seriously! It's horrible! I can't even tell what the stupid thing is! No wonder why Cilan has it! - Pikachulover1

Hey your mean stunfisk is awesome

Hey! Caterpie isn't all bad... In pokemon heart gold I won the bug catching contest WITH caterpie. If you try hard enough you'll get a dangerously stupid butterfree. AT LEAST caterpie isn't that ugly butterfly

Its cute at least. Once you get it leveled its good and bug catching contest and all that. But it's a first stage evolution so you can't judge it to hard, least its not Metapod

Caterpie is the worst Pokemon I ever observed.i hate every bug Pokemon living butterfree and heracross and some other. But caterpie isss the worst one of.

Silcoon vs magikarp umm... Magikarp used Bounce you here that dumb asses up there magikarp becomes useful by level 15 >

He stinks!
His only move when you catch him his only move is harden and tackle! Boo

He is a waste of time of training only that he can do it defense him self and in some seconds you lose the battle I don't know what iam saying anyway he sucks he is the worst pokemon to catch in history even when he envolves he is weak he so many weaknesses

It's a cocoon, like Metapod, useless

V10 Comments

Okay, I thought cascoon would be an AMAZING pokemon! Like I thought dustox was cool in the anime until I made the biggest mistake ever!

Again a CACOON! So its completely useless

A cacoon! As if we didn't have that Pokemon

The Newcomers


Has no attacks and has 30 health my worst guy.

It's ability shed skin is pretty useful.FOR THE FIRST TURN!


Let's look at the Facts.
In gen 1, it had high attack. However, no fire attacks are physical, making Flareon useless.
In gen 4, the Physical/Special split made flareon get fire fang, but that was it.
In gen 6, it gets Fire Blitz, which is a bit better, but the competitive community agrees that the others are better.

So, the moves don't match the stats, and you better save that fire stone and get a lightning stone and use that fire stone for something like, Vulpix, or Growlthe!

The Contenders


According to Pokedex Kakuna can't even move. And all it can do is harden. But at least it evolves to Beedrill. - aarond90

How is this lower than Metapod? At least it evolves into a decent pokemon. Kakuna is useless and Beedrill isn't even worth it


Literally a god.

There is no better pokemon than weedle. There never even will be he is a literally untoppable behemoth that will ineffably destroy any opposing team.

Okay so weedle is quite a great Pokemon. For the people who hate kakuna, just level weedle to level 10 so the next battle you play kakuna will try to evolve. Plus, beedrill can mega. MEGA. HE CAN MEGA FOR GOD SAKE YOU SHOULD BE THRUSTING YOU PELVIS'!

In know when I go to bed each night I actually pray for weedle

By far the worst of the rodent Pokemon. If you make bidoof look good, then there's a problem.

Patrat... Need I say more?

Pat RAT. It doesn't look like a rat at all. That's all.

Patrat is awesome! Your all being so mean

Sunkern is the pokemon with the official lowest stats and it evolves into a stupid flower with a highest stat of 105 and lowest of 30

Hey, in base stats, its the worst! - Samudino

While Sunkern is the "Worst Pokémon" Stat-wise, I'll give it a chance because I like this Pokémon's evolution. At least Sunkern actually EVOLVES.

Sunkern is awesome! Your all being so mean!

I actually think Farfetch'd is good for what it was meant to be, a joke Pokémon. It comes from a Japanese proverb and even in the anime, the Pokedex mentioned how they were almost extinct because they are a walking meal! They do come with the redeeming quality of racking up critical hits easily (now if they could only do a decent amount of damage to begin with... )

I think he's actually really good. He can learn fly, learns air cutter, knock off, and some other good attacks. I honestly voted just to share my opinion. It's bad? That seems a little FARFETCH'D! HAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHa

What's its catch? A stick! Oh boy! Laugh out loud. Horrible base stats too. At least it has a unique name I guess. If it had an evolution I'd choose it over a magikarp though.

Present has a 20% chance of healing the opponent. It's like giving a free potion one in five times.

Delibird uses Present

Hey so sorry for hurting you so sorry about that here's a potion so sorry

It can learn spikes and destiny bond, in case you didn't notice

Kadabra Alakazam are you kidding and teleport is not bad. It is awesome when it evolves. The only thing bad about abra is low hp and sleeping 18 hours a day. I believe that's why most people think its bad

YAY! I caught an Abra! Let's use him to battle this Pidgey!

(In battle) Okay, Abra, let's show this Pidgey whose boss! Lemme just look at your moveset and...

(notices he only knows Teleport! )


A troll in Pokemon

It can only teleport

Level 100 anything? Nope level 1 weedle beets all!

I bet a Magikarp can beat burmy. Also burmy only uses protect which can get really annoying

Don't just care about its stats. All Pokemon Have feelings too

Has any gen winners out there ever stopped to think that maybe charizard isn't this over powered beast that can ohko anything put in front of it? NO because you are all clouded by nostalgia and won't accept that now a days there are far better Pokemon to use, he has average stats not even a good ability to back it up for a flying type he doesn't even learn the best possible moves that he can and those weaknesses oh jeez are they crippling, he can barely last a turn on the field if the opponent in smart enough to set up stealth rocks his only saving grace is that it can now mega evolve but send out any water or fairy or rock or electric or Dragon or ground and this thing is out, so why don't you all stick your head out of that cloud of nostalgia and see all the new over powered Pokemon we have today my personal favourite being azumarill

Can you say "overrated? " come on guys this is not the god of Pokemon, or the best Pokemon ever. Is it good? Yes. But one rock attack just destroys the poor thing.

Who put Him here?! By far he has one of the best personality and WAY better than Feebas and Surskit AT LEAST. And actually yes it may be over used but that is because it is a DRAGON and also it happens to be able to learn flamethrower which is a bad-ass move. It is actually a very good pokemon and I mean really?! Apparently this pokemon is worst than Muk, seriously people? Are you like... Newbies or just trolls?

Guys, why don't you just choose blastoise or venusaur? Charizard is overrated everyone thinks he is the main Pokemon and always choose Charmander. What if you could only choose Bulbasaur or squirtle? Wouldn't that be better? I like Charizard, but like, there ARE better Pokemon too

The female lopunny is fine by me, but did you know that lopunny can be a boy? That's right! Lopunny can have a penis! Unbelievable, right?

This thing is sexist. Seriously, it goes from a cute little bunny to a play boy bunny. what Game Freak?!

Anyone else see the playboy bunny when you look at this thing? This and diggersby make a terrible combo that will ruin anyone's childhood. also it's a bit sexist in my opinion.

I agree. Lopunny is sexiest. WHAT GAME FREAK?
