The Top Ten

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

More comments about Unown

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.
[Newest]Worst ever Pokemon when he says his name it's horrible
More comments about Magikarp

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
[Newest]Um guys, why is luvdisc is not ahead of bidoof

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
[Newest]Worse than magical and unknown

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


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.
[Newest]Bidoof's design is bad, but come on. IT HAS MOODY AS ITS TALENT!

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.
[Newest]Actually if you get a metapod by evolving a caterpie it will know attack moves

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!


[Newest]Hands down.. UGLIEST Pokemon and it has the lowest speed base of all electric type Pokemon.

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
I did the Pokémon League with a Lv. 100 Caterpie.
Caterpie kicks azz I leveled up my caterpie to level 100 and then beat the elite 4. CATERPIE FTww!

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.


[Newest]It's a cocoon Pokemon of course it's pointless

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!

The Contenders

How is this lower than Metapod? At least it evolves into a decent pokemon. Kakuna is useless and Beedrill isn't even worth it
According to Pokedex Kakuna can't even move. And all it can do is harden. But at least it evolves to Beedrill.


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.
He is one of the classics! And his highest evolve is so trolly
[Newest]A level 100 bet my level 100 TEAM

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!


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.
[Newest]What can Sunkern EVEN do?

Level 100 anything? Nope level 1 weedle beets all!
Burmy may not be much to look at but my two wormadam are some of my best cards.

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.
And delibird (the card )(I don't know about the game) only has one move.
Delibird is so cute. It's ot strong and all that stuff. WRONG! Just see on YouTube. Pokemon platinum, with a delibird. It beats Cynthia on it's own. And even Flint.

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.

Charizard is terrible and overrated. There is no even good reason to like him. He's in NU for a good reason. Throw a rock at him, he dies. If he steps on a couple of rocks (stealth rock) more than once he's dead. Pointless waste of your time to train. Ninetales and Arcanine, and typhlosion are better, and so is Volcarona.
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?
[Newest]He is awesome but overrated have you ever heard of stealth rock haters he is awesome fans he isn't as awesome as you think but pretty cool
More comments about Charizard

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.
This thing is sexist. Seriously, it goes from a cute little bunny to a play boy bunny. what Game Freak?!
Hey, at least it has a BROKEN mega evolution
[Newest]What was this based on

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
A troll in Pokemon
It can only teleport
