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
Stop hating on SerenaV 154 Comments
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
Misty is the worst character of all. All she does is follow ash around and never does anything productive. If any case ash is always saving her. Come on she claims to be sweet when really she is the meanest person ever. She is always insulting everybody and thinks she is so pretty. Come on can she have some modesty. What really annoyed me was the fact that ash found the togepi egg but misty still persisted in keeping it and pushed ash out of the way when it hatched. She basically stole his Pokemon. Also why does she act like pikachu belongs to her. It doesn't. She is a brat and the worst Pokemon character of all. Why is she so mean to psyduck? A Pokemon trainer loves all their Pokemon and if it wasn't for him misty would have no Pokemon at all.
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.
1000 reasons why Misty is the worst!V 87 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.
"What a kid! " Imagine hearing that almost every day of your life. Pretty harsh, huh? That's what Iris is.
The funniest thing about Iris hate is that people can't tell the difference between a character being serious or is just saying something ironically. - Rue
Iris don't deserve to be in this list. - NaruHinaBlaze1V 32 Comments
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
I'm sorry if I say this, but I have to get it out of my head, but... Ash is the worst trainer I've ever seen. I'm tired of him being shipped with other of his female companions (not because I'm jealous, but because if people who think that's such a "good" idea to do so), he can't battle really well, he is annoying at times, he isn't what he was before and he just doesn't appeal to the audiences anymore as he did at the time. As I already said, I hate him being shipped with one of his female companions, that's the main thing I hate about him. Augh! I'm sick of this character! I wish he leaves after the SM anime, I wish we were to be introduced to a new character for once and for all, not having the same person after all of those years ever since the beginning of the anime. NO MORE SHIPPINGS, NO MORE ASH! AUGH!
I hate Ash to the heart! Make Pokemon Origins the new main anime series so I can see Red winning instead of Ash losing! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I meant that the only thing they did better was let red win, not ash, sorry. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Pathetic excuse for a trainerV 50 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
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!
Why is he even apart of the group? He doesn't a Pokemon, always blocking brock, believe he's all knowing, to put it simple he's the meowth in their team.
Max is probably the best character on the anime (besides Clemont). I mean, he roasted Brock a lot.V 17 Comments
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 - boltslegendV 4 Comments
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.
Her running gag is not as fun as Brock. Her constant proposals are unnecessary, pointless, stupid and meaningless. Clemont has ask on multiple occasions to stop and she continuous to do so purposely. She is of average intellect so she must understand when no is no. She does it to piss him off. She is extremely annoying/
Bro when she was singing to squishy at the end because squishy were evil or something like that. IT PISS ME OFF BECAUSE THE BITCH SING LIKE IT WAS GOING TO HELP. But of course it a kid anime, so the song work which pissed me off and you know, YOU KNOW, if this were real life, the bitch would been demolish by squishy.V 44 Comments
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!?
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.
Jigglypuff is a born idiot.. It's not a good singer, and a good Pokemon too... If its aim is to put everyone in sleep, why it draws on our faces?V 14 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
How is Harley not number one?
"Oh, hon! I accidentally dropped my ribbon case! " Oopsie. That guy is a big baby
Just wanted to punch him in the face
He always wants May to lose he cheats with his schemes to sabotage MayV 3 Comments
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
I HATE HER BECAUSE SHE IS CHILDISHV 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.
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. - NaruHinaBlaze1V 1 Comment
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
Jessie is annoying stuck up wenchV 12 Comments
Just watch 2 episodes and you will know chispin is stupid
Stupid and greedy gluton
Clemont's chespin is just Ash's oshawott. GOD!
How dare u - XomanxyV 1 Comment
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.
WHY IS CLEMONT ON HERE?! He was probably the best of Ash’s companions, and he’s also pretty cute. </3. I mean, he’s actually a pretty good character, and I’d tie him with Yuya Sakaki (they share the same voice actor in the English dub of their respective shows lmao), Yusei Fudo, Yugi Moto, Jaden Yuki and Yuma Tsukumo.V 3 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.
Best character better than pikachu, Should be champion president of kanto
Who put Brock on here!
Brock’s fascination with all the women is so annoying...V 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
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.
He gives me nightmares...V 8 Comments
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.
In kanto yeah. in jhoto he was amazing - boltslegendV 14 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.
Don't call my anime waifu/girlfriend annoying ok!V 15 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.
Ugh...I want to burn that notebook!
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!V 4 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.
Even though she's a anime girl I still would have sex with herV 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!?
I like snorlax but the 1 thing I hate about him
Snorlax used rest
Snorlax woke because of a berry
Snorlax used rest
Snorlax used rest
Snorlax used... you get the jist
Muk is slimy and gross who wound like him I don't even know why ash has a mug
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.
She's annoying and useless. What's her role in the game anyways?
Lillie should be higher than Bonnie! She sucks and Bonnie is amazing! - TGBBOD
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.
I’m not annoyed at Lillie or her character but it’s the producers I guess, it’s been happening through the whole series too, they shine so much light on these female comapanions, some I don’t mind like Dawn but Lillie. I don’t hate her at all but they didn’t give much of a story to the rest of the characters, it’s annoying and dumb. I don’t hate Lillie ok she is a really nice characterV 2 Comments
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!
Nerdy kid who gets in the way of Hilbert and Bianca's romance. - NibiruMul

#other comment r u like chuggaconroy, the YouTuber, sister or something no offense
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)

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
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. - Rue
You think he’s annoying I HEAR HIS VOICE LIKE EVERY DAY I love his accent thoughV 5 Comments
