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

It's not even spelled right, even though it's a letter of the alphabet. Isn't that sad.

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?!

Man, he is so powerful. He can defeat a Level 100 Charizard with the Holy move of all pokemon: Splash. Even Mewtwo will die! - Gamecubesarecool193

The key to Magikarp is giving it EXP Share, then waiting for it to evolve into Gyarados. In OR and AS, Magikarp can learn Bounce, which is a real attack, not a stupid Splash attack or a Tackle attack that only works at low levels. Every Gyarados needs to know Aqua Tail, Ice Fang, and Dragon Dance. The last move can be optional, like Bounce for STAB (get it from Magikarp) or Giga Impact for the best normal type attack. Gyarados can also learn Earthquake, Stone Edge, Iron Tail, Dragon Tail, and Crunch. Basically the only way to win a battle with Magikarp is to teach it Bounce, and you can only do that in OR or AS.

Magikarp is Love, Magikarp is Life.

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

I will find your house luvdisc and hurt you

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

Every time I see it I think of derpy fusions..

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.

If you think that kakuna is bad then metapod is even worse & is a disgusting, unripe hard green living banana.

A wild bidoof has appeared.
2 seconds later... 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.

Bidoof is Love, Bidoof is Life.

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

At least he looks decent

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

Like Magikarp except Magikarp can learn tackle and it evolves into something useful. - booklover1

It's a cocoon, like Metapod, useless

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

Stupid ass pokemon got me stuck in pokemon red in a trainer battle with another pokemon

You hate them and they're ugly. Even though m-beedrill is uu with adaptability and high speed and attack. It may not apply to kakuna, if you try to make that arguement about the entire line, then it's fair game. We're talking about worst pokemon here, not least favorite.

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!

I hate cocoon Pokemon! Especially Cascoon! It is a waste of pokeballs!

10/10 players agree: Cascoon/Dustox is less gay than Silcoon/Beautifly.

The Newcomers


If a flying squirrel met the worst bidoof ever this would be there baby who got shocked by a lightning bolt. Isn't rock type super effective? I mean a puny little geodude could beat the crap out of this.

What the heck? Emolga? Really? Come on. I mean, the ones in elesa's gym were a total pain, and it's not bad just because it's a pikachu clone, you already know they have them every generation.


This purple blob is cuddly and cute, but it's ugly and creepy.

The Contenders


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

OKay by far the worst Pokemon! I mean even magikarp could beat this. How is it not number 1! It Has the worst base stats evolves into a flower and looks utterly horrible. Unown has better base stats then this... Its actually official that Sunkern has the lowest base stats in the whole game... If you find a shiny magikarp you get really excited because that's one of the best shinies in the game... But when you get a shiny sunkern you wanna release it because it looks the exact same...

Bad Bad Bad, just horrible! No question about it.

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

Don't you dare talk about my homie Caterpie like that. Whoever says that Caterpie deserves to be one of the worst Pokemon ever, you can battle me and my Level 100 Caterpie from heartgold

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

What's the point of him

V23 Comments

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'!

He's not strong

V29 Comments

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

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

One of the Worst Designed Pokemon Created. Also I hate its evolution.

Stop making fun of patrat

I don't see why people think Delibird sucks because he can heal you. There is actually a very small chance that Present can heal you at all. I still wouldn't recommend using him on a super competitive team, but his design is cool and he's not only good for Present,

Did you know that Delibird can learn nearly every move? He can also delete present. So its not a bad Pokemon. And it can grow to be very strong, too!

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

He's the mentally challenged Santa bird

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

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... )

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.

Somehow lowe than lopunny because the rabbit is sexist. I'm so done with this community.

V14 Comments

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?!

Ugh, really, game freak? I have an issue with this thing, just for me, it's a walking stereotype of what women should be... Maybe I am looking too deep into this

Lopunny is not 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! )


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

Abra can evolve. Then he becomes a beast

So you said Magikarp is the greatest because of what it evolves into, well what about Abra?

This should be in the top 5. It really should. You know what this thing is? Sludge. You know what sludge is? Decomposing feces. And you think that literal crap is more disgusting than a bag of garbage. Generation 1 fanboys, get your notes out. There have always been Pokemon based off of gross things (or whatever you want to call them. ) There have always been Pokemon based off of food and other objects. There have always been Pokemon that are crappy rip offs of pikachu. STOP PICKING AT THE NEW Pokemon FOR STUFF THAT THE OLD ONES AREN'T ALSO GUILTY OF!

You can try for hours to hit this Pokemon but if it knows minimize you may as well try to kill a Mewtwo with growl and get better results

Garbage is better than a fat, ugly, smelly piece of muck (what happened to good naming, Game Freak? ) And Trubbish actually cleans up garbage, but Muk just makes all plants die. Yes, it sucks.

I am not training that damn thing.

V18 Comments

Level 100 anything? Nope level 1 weedle beets all!

When they asked burmy what he wanted to be when he grew up, he chose a bush, a potato, and a trash can.

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

Burmy is the worst biggest, fattest, deepest, caterpie wannabe in all of the lands
