Top 10 Most Annoying Pokemon Characters

The Top Ten

Serena Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

I would say she is the prettiest of all ash's girl companions but she is also the most pointless and strangest of all. Dawn, May, Misty and Iris are better when they are having fights with ash. It is funny to see that. Serena's huge crush on ash is just annoying. At least The other girls don't blush every time ash compliments them. Ash is a good character but not worth for all that. I don't care if ash's girl companions are pretty or not, I want them to have a CHARACTER. And all of them do exept for serena. I don't like bonnie either.

My thoughts on this:

There's nothing wrong with a character being girly. But when a character's girlishness is stereotypical and cliche, there's a problem. There's no originality in it. We already know what Serena is and is going to be. She likes cooking, clothes, Ash, cute things, pink... we get it. It's the same, stereotypical girly personality. We already know that she's going to end up with Ash, compete in some girlish contest (tripokalons are just cooking, dancing, fashion and sparkles, nothing else).

She contributes very little to the group, she's only there to please the shippers, and make Ash look good. Although, the former is a problem with Bonnie and Clemont as well.

The writers force you to like her. She's pretty, an innocent girly with an oh-so cute crush on Ash who nobody disagrees with and whose actions have little to no real affect on her. Sure, maybe minor things happen to her, but that doesn't change her. She's forgiven easily, it doesn't make her ...more

Stupid, annoying and useless. It's a shame to even include her as a Pokemon trainer, when all she does is nothing but fantasizing about Ash. Of all girl companion characters, she's the worst because she's got nothing! She has no dream, she shoes no enthusiasm about catching Pokemon.. She's really a fan service character with flat personality

What were the writers trying to do? Make Pokemon parody Sword Art Online? NO THANK YOU! I love the romance in Sword Art Online, but not the romance in Pokemon between Ash and Serena!

Serena COULD have been good, but... No. Just. No.

Her obsession over Ash wasn't endearing or made her likable at all. Quite the opposite, actually. Pokemon never needed a dumb blushing fangirl as the main heroine. Sure we might have some characters of the arc/day be like that, but I'd rather have main characters that are interested in Pokemon, and, most importantly, that are independent outside of their crush on the MC, if they have one. Misty had one, arguably Dawn too, and they were still independent and good characters on their own! But if you remove Serena's obsession over Ash, she's literally nothing. She sometimes cares about Bonnie, but never about Clemont, that messes up the whole chemistry of the group by having one fangirl caring about only one person. This, her attempts to manipulate Ash, namely the snowball fight, and her sexual assault of him when she kissed him make her one of the most annoying characters in Pokemon, alongside the likes of Damian or Paul. Needless ...more

Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ more.

Misty is NOTHING like Serena. The only reason she did "nothing" for the first few seasons was because the writers focused everything on Ash and nothing on Brock or Misty.

When she does get character development, she is the strongest of any of them, she's a GYM LEADER for one thing, she conquers her childhood fears of Gyarados, and she even trains one for herself.

Misty is headstrong, stubborn, and dedicated to her Pokemon, she may have no goal in the beginning of the show, but she has a goal of becoming a water Pokemon master, and she's amazing at underwater battles, and she has more knowledge then Ash or Brock even when it comes to battling.

Misty may be rude and loud, but she truly cares for her friends, she cheers Brock on when he does anything worthwhile, and she pulls him away when he gets sidetracked (and annoying) when he sees pretty women, not to mention she helps and supports Ash every step of the way. We get to see the relationship between Ash ...more

She is even more useless than Serena. people complain about Serena just following Ash everywhere but Misty is in the same boat. For 200+ episodes she did NOTHING to further herself. At least Serena is supportive, Misty just insulted and physically abused Ash and Brock.

I don't like this character at all. Even when she stopped being a jerk, she didn't have any characterization and that's why I hated her. Unlikable is better than no personality.

She's basically this girl who pretends to be all helpless and sad because of her sisters, does absolutely nothing to help, is annoying as heck, and looks cute. I'm not against tsunderes, but this one... Misty just looks sweet but she annoys me more than THAT Mary Sue.

Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris more.

Iris, is she really that bad? At least she gave personality to the anime with her character unlike hint hint Serena who does literally nothing except fawn over Ash. I would say it's the writers fault for making her "what a kid" phrase which gives her the most hate. Yes I get annoyed too, I feel like saying your a kid too honey but at least she gave personality with her constant bickering with Ash. but she cared and cheered for him just as much! Please, compared to Serena's fake character, Iris wins.

This character is really, really overhated. So what if she calls Ash a kid, to be fair Ash can act like an immature kid at times. Iris is a good friend to him, she does call him out but it's better than putting on a pedestal, and she is also supportive, nice and caring to him. Unlike Misty or Serena (snowball scene), she never abused him or tried to manipulate him. She's not that bad at all.

Why does everyone hate her? She's really kind, great with nature, and just teases him a few times.

She is definitely most annoying because she is supposed to be. Also, Serena was only useless at the beginning of x and y. I think you would blush if your crush complimented you.

Ash Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

That character itself is not that disturbing but now it is because how his fans won't shut up singing his glory everywhere. We get it, okay, we get it. You want Ash's temple with Ash's body pillow inside it? Cool! Tell that to your president instead of whining about other characters we want to like instead of Ash. Just because we watch (or tolerate) the anime doesn't mean we have to be automatically an AshKetchum fan. Leave us alone with our preferred characters. Not everyone has to like Ash just because he's the protagonist.

I can't stand this whiny little punk ass sack of puke! He always has to be the centre of attention and he gets on my nerves every time. There are far more interesting and loveable characters in the entire pokemon franchise than this stupid useless turd called Ash Ketchum!

Ash is technically the worst trainer of all time because a 15 year trained Pikachu couldn't even beat snivy, arceus, dialga or, darkrai and palkia

Even worse than Paul, who literally abused his Pokemon? Just because Ash is not the best doesn't mean that he sucks. - yungstirjoey666

Can't stand him. His fans won't let me love the other characters from anime in peace. They have to always poke their fingers in every matter. Since all the player characters from game outshines Ash. The writers have no other choice but to pull hilarious battle match ups for Ash.
Why can't characters like gladion, Brendan, lucas calem have the spot lights.


He never really contributed anything. And he thinks he knows everything about pokemon but has no real life experience. I mean, granted, he was able to tell what type of attacks pokemon could do, but if it wasn't in may or ash's pokedexes, brock was also able to provide answers. His whole reason for traveling was to help May even going so far as to saying that she wouldn't be able to do anything WITHOUT him, but May was able to quickly pick up what attacks each pokemon could do within the first season. My point is, if max hadn't been with them, we would have lost NOTHING. And we wouldn't have had to constantly hear him talking down to may and ash even AFTER traveling with them and seeing first hand how hard they worked and how hard battling and coordinating are. And he actually STOLE the badge that ash rightfully won off his dad yet NEVER gets called out on it. His dad comforts him and ash ACTUALLY OFFERS HIM THE BADGE. If I were the dad, I would have told max to get over it and put ...more

Exactly! And this is why Bonnie is the better younger traveling companion and always will be.

Max such a know it all and think he know he know everything about Pokemon.

Max is such a know- it -all little kid who thinks and act he everything. He so annoying and most obnoxious character after Harley.

He annoyed me so much when he's on about Ash can't beat his dad and then when Ash beats his dad he runs off and cries and steals the badge, grow up!

Bonnie Bonnie is created by game freak & Nintendo. She was in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, as Clemont's (the electric type gym leader of Lumiose City) younger sister. She gave out quizzes to trainers who came to challenge the gym, who if they get it wrong would have to challenge a trainer. more.

Ugh her voice! It hurts my ears! She's cute and love how Clemont cares for her and all like as if he were her mother but Clemont should be better off traveling on his own.

She is LITERALLY the most annoying character of all. She's constantly running off and getting lost. And instead of waiting where she is she keeps wandering and in turn getting Ash/Serena/Clemonts Pokemon lost with her! Her stupid needy, selfish I wanna do this! I wanna do that stuff gets me riled up. She's just the worst. Her voice overall really grinds my gears. Every time a beedrill shows up I PRAY that it slays her with his drills.

Bonnie is better than Max and less annoying but since she blain's Clemont on his silly names in the early XY it can get really annoying if you hear it a lot!

She could be Brock's wing girl for the girls. She would help him find a girlfriend and a wife.


Paul fans annoy me so much, everyone keeps saying he is a "complex character" but he doesn't change until the very end.

Paul Is Bad

He is the exact representation of a 15 year old emo who had his hair cut

The perfect rival for ash. everything was perfect any time he came into the episode - boltslegend

Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Please stop drawing on our faces

Annoying as heck! Just pops up out of nowhere then sings, gets mad and scribbles on people's faces! What the heck is that all about!?

She is a selfish and egotistical jerk who only cares about herself and acts likes shes better than everyone else

Any time I saw Jigglypuff in an episode I would instantly care less about that episode. How would a Pokemon not know that its move would send people to sleep. Even so yes I would find it annoying if someone fell asleep as I was singing but has this Jigglypuff never met another one.


He's an idiot, he thought he wanted to make May's life miserable just because he looked like a partner who stole his food WHEN HE WAS A CHILD, in a word he's a first-rate immature and he was even bad with Team Rocket, and he pushes called losers, maybe they are but at least to be the villains are better people than you, apart in several chapters sends them to fly to be good with people and do not know he is a damn manipulator and it bothers me that writers never they would punish him for being more evil than the villains

He tricks and sabotage May with him his schemes and sometimes with Team Rocket.

WHY! Harley the tall 5 year old sounding character that made may somehow fall for his lies.

How is Harley not number one?

Bianca Bianca is a character from Pokemon by gamefreak & Nintendo. She is one of the rivals & a childhood friend of the protagonist in Pokemon black and Pokemon White. She lives in Nuvema Town, and was held back of being a Pokemon trainer because of her overprotective father wouldn't let her be one. Bianca more.

I hated her in the game and I hated her in the show. Every time somebody is trying to do something, she'd pop up and get in the way. Plus she's a spaz and is a terrible trainer.

I liked her better in the game: she develops. In the anime, she's just there to be there. I'm not a fan of her voice either.

Who runs as fast as they can in a strait line with there eyes closed just saying out of my way - boltslegend

Most annoying person ever

The Contenders


The "I'll fine you! " was funny at first. It got annoying quickly. His voice is also extremely annoying in the english dub.

KEEP BARRY OFF THIS LIST OR I'LL HAVE TO FINE YOU! I don't know. When I was sad once I watched barry run into ash, and when he said, "I'LL HAVE TO FINE YOU." That for some reason cheered me up. He's been my favorite character since then, I find it humorous every time he says "i'll have to fine you! " (Bianca's is retarded)

I like Barry. He isn't annoying. He's very funny and makes me laugh

Barry is half anoying, half laugh out loud


She's just plain stuck up and stupid.

Almost every gen 5 Characters are horrible but Georgia crosses the line and is even more annoying than Stephen

She loses to dragon types once, and now it is her lifes work to be dedicated to beat them. WOW. - HeavyDonkeyKong

She may be a bit annoying but not as tottaly annoying as Misty. - NaruHinaBlaze1


jessie is a cheater and a lier and stupid women that she is now

Jessie haters are crap just like haters in general. And you just don't understand her, either you're a kid or just ignorant enough to not see the full picture. Besides, how can anyone take you serious with that bad of a grammar? Jessie may have anger issues which is a flaw and besides, she improves a lot and is less prone to anger than before. The others has flaws too, hating Jessie for hers is unfair. It's YOU who's delusional here, you can't look at the full picture and you're being ignorant as heck.

You Jessie haters rock! She deserves to be Number One this list because of how mean she is too her teammates. Hell, I'm sick of her yelling, "We're blasting off again! " whenever she loses to her enemies just as I hate beating the crap out of her teammates whenever they piss her off. I wish that they, especially Meowth, murdered her for that.

All of you Jessie who voted her haters down are delusional. Do you suck up to her even though she's not real? If so and she terrorizes the hell out of you, don't blame me.

The people of kalos league will not like jessie beauty they will rejected her in the finals that's why because she didn't measure up the finals that she lost. Like she lose to dawn and may for the lasts time she got her butt kicked by serena in the semi finals round like may and dawn humiliated jessie in diamond and pearl and battle frontier. I told you jessie was not famous or a winner and she hasn't done a good job of that that's why she's a loser and a big mouth. She's nothing but a stuck up little snob and she got what she deserves

Chespin Chespin, known in Japan as Harimaron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Chespin is my best friend not annoying

Just watch 2 episodes and you will know chispin is stupid

Clemont's chespin is just Ash's oshawott. GOD!

Stupid and greedy gluton

Clemont Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. more.

Just creates stupid inventions almost every episode. I don't understand why he isn't near the top of the list.

Stupid character

Has no sense of being a gym leader at all and has stupid Pokemon other than luxray

Just another clumsy inventor type. I swear, every type he introduces a new invention I cringe, because I know it's going to steal several minutes from the episode, just to do what it always does in the end: expload. I'm sure he's Michael Bay's favorite character, but this stupid repetitiveness is driving me nuts.

His hair- I don't know why it annoys me

Dawn's Piplup

Gosh, it and Dawn were pretty annoying (though Dawn had her moments). Piplup wasn't cute, or funny... Just annoying.

To say how I find Dawn's Piplup unbearable, I went away, giving it the label "worse than Jar Jar Binks! " * dramatic music*

Why don't you want to evolve

This thing is just a sad attempt at making another pikachu, pikachu in comparison is way better because it has all of the same character traits but with a better backstory and an adorable voice. Piplup is just an annoying penguin who never goes into its pokeball, doesn't want to evolve, thinks it is better than everyone despite being weak, and as I hinted at before, has the most obnoxious voice in the English dub. Please don't ever make the mistake of bringing that creature back like they did in the unova series.

Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Do you expect a Pikachu to say Bulbasaur? If you don't like Pikachu, why are you watching the show?

I also hates how it overpowers Pokémon that are obviously stronger than it but it loses to a level 5 Snivy.

I was watching a Pokemon episode (but not really because I was talking to my friends because we were having an anime marathon) and all I could here was
Pika Pika-pika-Pikachu pika pika pika pika
Chu pika pika chu pikachu pika pikachu
Pika chu pika pika chu pika chu pika
I want to go into the anime and punch ash and say GET A SCIZOR OR SOMETHING BETTER THAN THAT MONSTER! (scizor rules, so does barry)

I'm tired of listening to all the "PIKA! PIKA! PIKA-PI! PIKA... CHU! " It just wants me to jump into the pokemon and yell at it to shut up.

Zubat Zubat, known in Japan as Zubat, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

There should be a Zubat repel to keep Zubat away while you look for better Pokemon. - NibiruMul

I'm surprised how high on the list zubat is - Pokemonsonicmaster


The way she popped up was more creepy then annoying and O chose to fewi t as she need lesson from her mentorAsh and Misty which was odd them in that role at time because they where also relatively inexperinced themselfs as still needed a lot of Brock help.

No you DON’T INCLUDE MY WAIFU! - Frodomar49

Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . more.

Brock is the best! Whoever put him here- die already. He's is the best for even handling ash all those years! Watch goodbye pikachu on YouTube- I dare you.

He should just join Team Rocket he's that annoying. The hitting on every girl gets really old really fast. Id compare it to the team rocket motto.

Best character better than pikachu, Should be champion president of kanto

Who put Brock on here!


God! I HATE THIS CHARACTER! HE NEVER SHUT'S UP, AND THAT TONE HE USES REALLY PISSES ME OFF! HE JUST TALKS ABOUT HOW "PERFECT" HE IS AND WILL NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT IT NO MATTER WHAT! I hope that one day in this show, that he loses and is claimed to be the worst. That will be so satisfying to see his face! I'm still on season 1 though. episode 45. So don't spoil anything for me!

Gary is so cute! Cute enough to have a crush on!

Ten Badges. Ten Badges. His game counterpart is far superior, even though Blue is cocky and arrogant at times (who does that sound like), he is a entertaining rival to battle against.

Gary is cute I really like him I want him to be my boyfriend I really like him

Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

Yes. Super annoying even though one of my favorite characters. Thing I like is that he's really hilarious. Thing that makes him annoying is that "evaluation time" and his super pathetic actions while talking about advice blablabla, bragging about his "awesome" cooking. But what annoys me most is bragging about those dumb Fruity Pies! Makes me wanna do Hyper Voice + Dragon Rage= Hyper Rage.

Generic Brock with no style or sex appeal.

Pokemon was awesome until Cilan replaced Brock.

Am I the only who is actually okay with Cilan?


Sawyer isn't THAT bad. I mean, there's even worse characters than him.

He doesn't deserve to beat Ash in a battle. And how did he win three badges in a little bit of time while ash still hadn't made it to snow belle city? And it really Annoys me how he's always writing down in his notebook about what ash did to win.

He's the most pointless useless character on the show ever. I only found this poll because I google searched to see if everyone thought he was as god damn annoying as I do.

Ugh...I want to burn that notebook!
