Top 10 Most Annoying Pokemon Characters
The Top Ten
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
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.
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! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Pathetic. It sickens me to think that many people think of her as their favourite character. She started her pokemon journey because of her debilitating inability to function as her own person and decides to pursue her life long dream of stalking ash.
Ash and serena have no chemistry. They are just nice to each other. Not only is that incredibly boring to watch, but it also means that they are not good friends. Friends tease each other and point out flaws because it shows care. The way I see it ash is only nice to serena because everything she says just screams 'pity me'.
Ash has certainly matured since the indigo league and he holds his temper better, which explains why he can put up with serena but after he lost to wulfric and serena went to console him, what happened next shows that he has never really respected her opinion and doesn't like her and that he was only so nice to her because he has more control over his temper:
In the woods where serena finds him, she talks at ...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
Burn the witch
I seen better girls than her!
Misty should be number 1, indeed!V 95 Comments
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.
Other than Misty, Iris is probably my favorite because she actually argues with Ash which I love, I would mention her being champion, it's in game though, (in my opinion it would be pretty awesome for them to return to Unova to find Iris as champion.) Why is she on this list?
I voted because Serena does not deserve to be #1 - MaxAurelius
Iris don't deserve to be in this list. - NaruHinaBlaze1V 35 Comments
Can people please stop complaining about the whole "Ash is so annoying! " thing?
Ash fits the cartoony/goofy style and yes, I agree Ash can be annoying. (especially with exclaiming he will be Pokemon league master and fails.) Other than that I'm fine with Ash. (Let's be honest Red will most likely never replace Ash unless they make Pokemon a origins its own anime.)
Ash can be pretty annoying at times, and he turned bland, but he's far from the worst trainer. I mean, he may not have won yet, but he makes it to at least top 16 out of a hundred trainers in every league. Besides, he did win the Orange and Kanto battle frontier, both of which are canon.
That aside, even I'm a bit sick of this kid. 20 years of little to no development. At least let him age. - yungstirjoey666
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
Pathetic excuse for a trainerV 53 Comments
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. - TGBBOD
He's such a know it all little kid. He don't need to know everything. He only need to learn he needs to know what just not everything.
He such a know it all little kid. He needs let May learn for herself. And learn that he don't everything.
Max is probably the best character on the anime (besides Clemont). I mean, he roasted Brock a lot.V 17 Comments
He wasnt annoying. he was a dick
Paul fans annoy me so much, everyone keeps saying he is a "complex character" but he doesn't change until the very end.
He is the exact representation of a 15 year old emo who had his hair cut
Paul Is BadV 5 Comments
Nah I think she's fine
She should be at the top
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.V 44 Comments
She is a selfish and egotistical jerk who only cares about herself and acts likes shes better than everyone else
Haha, Jigglypuff? ANNOYING? Lmao Jigglypuff is amazing and if you didn't love to watch it scribble on faces because of its songs you're absolutely crazy.
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!?V 16 Comments
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 always wants May to lose he cheats with his schemes to sabotage May
He should be number 1 on this list...can’t stand his ass!
How is Harley not number one?V 4 Comments
Who runs as fast as they can in a strait line with there eyes closed just saying out of my way - boltslegend
I HATE HER BECAUSE SHE IS CHILDISH
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.V 5 Comments
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
Shut up shut up shut up. Dawn is nit good character unless she plays off Paul or Zoey but that's the thing she has someone to py off Barry isj ust annoying and what's with the fining everyone for no reason he hurtsmy brain only one person hurts it more.
Almost every gen 5 Characters are horrible but Georgia crosses the line and is even more annoying than Stephen
She's just plain stuck up and stupid.
She may be a bit annoying but not as tottaly annoying as Misty. - NaruHinaBlaze1
She loses to dragon types once, and now it is her lifes work to be dedicated to beat them. WOW. - HeavyDonkeyKongV 1 Comment
She is terrible; I hate her more than I hate Miley Cyrus.
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 deservesV 13 Comments
How dare u - Xomanxy
Just watch 2 episodes and you will know chispin is stupid
Stupid and greedy gluton
Clemont's chespin is just Ash's oshawott. GOD!V 1 Comment
His hair- I don't know why it annoys me - MaxAurelius
Just creates stupid inventions almost every episode. I don't understand why he isn't near the top of the list.
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.V 4 Comments
Do you expect a Pikachu to say Bulbasaur? If you don't like Pikachu, why are you watching the show? - KingofPawns
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 also hates how it overpowers Pokémon that are obviously stronger than it but it loses to a level 5 Snivy.
sucks its annoying and it's a terrible Pokemon. I wish clefairy was the mascot instead.V 28 Comments
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.V 16 Comments
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
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.
Who put Brock on here!
Best character better than pikachu, Should be champion president of kanto
Brock is pretty much the Best Character On the Show - WWEWBMortalKombatFanV 11 Comments
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
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!
He's So Annoying He Can Rival THE damn MANFRED VON KARMA!
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.V 14 Comments
He gives me nightmares...
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.
Gary plus brock plus clemont is himV 8 Comments
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.
THANK YOU GUYS! I flipping HATE Sawyer! I also found this poll by googling "why is Sawyer so annyoing?! " He is such a wannabe but he never thinks about his pokemon! He is always thinking about ASH ASH ASH!
Ugh...I want to burn that notebook!V 5 Comments
It is my belief that a lot of the people who hate Dawn are angry shippers that are jealous Dawn is such good friends with Ash. It's clear that Ash clicked better with and understood Dawn more than any of his other female friends. And for the record I'm NOT a pearlshipper, in fact, I HATE ALL of the main ships, especially pearlshipping! I wish people could just appreciate how special a true friendship is and not automatically assume that just b/c two people are close it means they should or will eventually "get together" romantically.
Dawn is awesome! Her mamoswine and togekiss are the boss
At least she had role in the plot, unlike Misty who was just there to be another Sakura.
I don't get why Dawn's in 8th place on account of, she was very sweet and likableV 14 Comments
May is my other favorite main girl. You have to love her interactions with Drew.
In my opinion, it's not the character herself I find annoying, it's the character's fans I find annoying. They treat May like she's the best thing since toilet paper, and then bag on the other female characters because of it. I like May, but she's a cartoon character, not a goddess.
She's was whiny as hell! She cried when she got lost, she freaks out about losing battles and contests and she's always hating on Max cause he's smarter than her.
The only annoying thing about May is she fell for Harley's lies THREE TIMES. But I'd say that's mostly Ash and Brock to blame (mostly Ash though).V 13 Comments
I love snorlax but agree in the game its annoying - boltslegend
He is not annoying, he's awesome!
I know right!? In a episode of Pokemon in the orenge islands snorlax kept eating and eating the fruit! I wanted to punch snorlax and you just have to have a pokèflute! It's super annoying!?
Snorlax stinks. GET OUT OF THE WAY! - EverythingStampyStyleV 2 Comments
Muk is slimy and gross who wound like him I don't even know why ash has a mug
Lillie's cool and everything, but the only thing about her that annoys me about her is her voice. because I'm watching one of the episodes right now and listening to her narrate the episode is just grating to hear.
Lillie should be higher than Bonnie! She sucks and Bonnie is amazing! - TGBBOD
She's annoying and useless. What's her role in the game anyways?
How is being afraid of Pokemon make Lillie annoying? She's overcoming her fear ever since Episode 8 so you can't continue to throw a temper tantrum about it. (Not to mention, THAT PRETTY MUCH MOST FEMALE COMPANIONS have very annoying moments in the beginning of their seasons.)
P.S. I'm a bit irritated that is her overall character flaw but I'm aware that she isn't going to be exactly like her game counterpart. Though she still has association with her abusive mother and might rescue Cosmog/Nebby later on so you Lillie haters can stop being babies.
Giratina one of the best Pokemon and you put him on the list because you couldn't think of anyone else. Wow
Giratina is on here and Bianca isn't? Are you mental?
WHAT THE LITERAL (adjective deleted) IS MY BEAUTIFUL GIRA DOING HERE!
How about I trash your home and wreck everything you love. Then I'd like to see if you'r mad afterwards.
Really!? That's just weak! My rivals are actually people! I love Ash but really Ash should know better! Well smell you later!
Calling Krokorok Ash's rival is stupid, they had like one complete battle and then he caught it...
Ashs rival in univa is a Pokemon
I hate krokorok's bitch ass
Stupid french talk, insane over cilan lossing, absolutly pathedic atbattleing - boltslegend
She is a brat. CAN I JUST SLAP HER?! GET THE HECK OUTA HERE! SHE SAID TO ASH, IRIS, AND CILAN "I hope you lose" you're embarrassing Cilan. JUST GIVE THE POOR GUY A BREAK! SAYING HE SAID MEAN THINGS WHEN HE didn't?! WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU!
Rotom Dex really needs to be a number one on this list! He is the most IRRITATING and pathetic piece of garbage I’ve ever listened to on the show. His voice is so squawky and loud. I hope when Sun & Moon ends, that stupid robotic thing gets written off PERMANENTLY. - TGBBOD
Definitely. People wouldn't vote for this, but when I watched Sun and Moon, I felt like "THIS WAS REALLLYY UNORIGINAL" and why don't they use a random pokedex? Or why don't they just tell who or what the Pokémon is by JUST LOOKING AT THEM? If Ash wants to be a Pokémon Master, then yes, go for sure, but if he wants to be a Pokemon Master HE SHOULD KNOW ALL THE POKÉMON'S NAMES AND ABILITIES AND STATS BY JUST LOOKING AT THEM. Rotor Dex was really dumb. It's voice is going to make my brain pop. I really wish I could kick its ass because it likes to observe Alola, the most overrated and my least favorite region.
I swear to god, in Ultra Sun, he is the most annoying piece of crap, EVER! I mean, every time I do something, he then tells me crappy advice nobody gives a crap about!
Me: (looks at PokéDex)
Rotom: You want help?
Rotom: In rain, water types get 1.5x power while Fire types lose half!
Me: look over there.
Me: (sends out Sceptile)
Rotom: Why is Yuya out of his-
Me: Yuya, use Dragon Claw!
Yuya: On it!
Me: (sends out Salamence) Jack, burn Rotom before he wakes up.
Jack: (burns the Rotom)
Rotom dex: JJAKAAKJXEOWPAMZJSOWA Y U Y A A N D Z U Z U ALALAL
Me: Lmao lol

Eevee and Pikachu are in the same generation, noob. And also, it's spelled PIKACHU, you stupid ass.
The biggest Mary Sue of the Pokemon franchise, next to Mega Rayquaza. - NibiruMul
Did you really have to steel the cutest video game character from Picachu? REALLY?
Psyduck can get quite annoying. Misty’s Psyduck always jumps in at the worst time. Especially throughout s2-6.
Slakoth is the best Pokemon because it looks like a sloth and sloths are the best animal
He's cute but hopeless he just does a weak hit he's so easy to catch and it pointless.
**ng piss off to this Pokemon she just left misty? After all? Misty care to her and that's it?
All Togepi does is say "TOGEPPPRIII" in the most annoying way...
Nintendo: uhh.. we need a new Pokemon. lets draw a pink worthless blob that morphs into everything! And I don't know why, lets give it only 2 moves. since it's so annoying and worthless, let's put it in the anime and male it win every battle!
Umm... Ditto was an original character. Nintendo didn't have it as a new character. #newbie
Ditto is an idiot and it is so weird I mean it is a pink barf glob who shapeshifts and smells like puke yuck
It's so stupid and when I see that penguin in the series I'm getting shocked by a Thunder look at its attitude in the anime it's so proud of its self
Always crossing my fingers that ash wouldn't choose totodile because that was annoying
He sounds like Donald Duck lmao
She makes my ears bleed. Both her and Jimmy. They deserve each other-both so, so annoying!
Why is he on this list? He was a boss, even more so when he evolved!
Treecko was the man
What? Treecko has such a great backstory. You also have the nerve to put him on this list?V 1 Comment
You think he’s annoying I HEAR HIS VOICE LIKE EVERY DAY I love his accent though
That voice grates my everlasting nerve! I get excited when wobbuffet interrupts him. I have to admit that it's usually meowth that gives team rocket the evil ideas and helps move the story along but sometimes I wish they would send him away and adopt a new team mascot
Nah meowth is not cute at all he is just so annoying cat Pokemon I ever seen and he stink as a dancer and he is evil to ash and his friends and on top of that he wasn't nice to them nobody likes him anymore
Meowth's japanese voice is the only thing I hate about listening to the Japanese version instead of the dub. - RueV 5 Comments
