Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon

The Top Ten

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

Oh God, Charizard... Now, where do I start?! He is SO weak! With a single blast of stealth rock, half of his health will go down. Talk about crappy! My Typhlosion CREAMED Red's Charizard in one hit, and my Golduck also beat a Charizard in ONE hit, with a single blast of Surf! Charizard doesn't sound too convincing now, doe's he? He's just another overrated gen. 1 Pokémon. Why do all of the weak Pokemon get all of the attention? Take Pikachu for example. Listen, Typhlosion is super underrated, and he has the SAME stats as Charizard. If not, Typhlosion is better! With five generations, and six is just coming out, you would think everybody would forget about Charizard, but NO! All of those Charizard fans think I'm wrong, but Charizard fans, think about it. Typhlosion only appeared once in the animie, (The Legend of Thunder) and Charizard appeared in almost every series numerous times. They don't show Kanto ( except for that dumb electric rat and VERY few others) or Jhoto anymore, but ...more

Charizard is absolutely overrated. Charizard is the most common choice of all the Non-Pokemon Fans' favorite Pokemon. He deserves to be in the NU tier! The thing has vile defenses due to it being 2 of the worst Defensive Types! Stealth Rock, Rock Slide or any Rock Type move takes 1 down! And if it does switch into Stealth Rock, it loses HALF OF ITS MAXIMUM HP! It's good offensively due to its high Sp Att and its Hidden Abililty - Solar Power - but you have to prevent it from losing its momentum, or else this atrocious defender will die. I love Charizard, but I would rather use Lucario.

Guys... Oh god. First let me say I was on IGN top 100 Pokemon and I saw where bulbasaur was in relation of squirtle and charmander. Look guys I know that venusaur isn't necessarily, but two tings, first bulbasusr is better than the other 2 starters at the beginning with better stats AND strong against the first to gym leaders, but that's charmander, now before I say this, people don't overate pikachu everybody just knows him, but WHY THE IS CHARIZARD NUMBER 1 OVER SO MANY OTHERS (oh yeah nostalgia) (also I think squrirtle-blastoise line is the worst gen 1 starter and HOW THE DID HE MAKE 3 AND VENUSAUR MAKE 15) and all I will say in closing is that he is so overrated that I have come to HATE HIM WITH A BURNING PASSION, because before I was on the internet I thought he was okay (on level with venasuar the people who says he sucks) I still like him more than blastoise in battle but HE IS MY LEAST FAVORITE GEN 1 STARTER OUTSIDE OF BATTLE

Hey, listen to Ash, any Pokemon can be strong with the right amount of training...then again, he thought that Arbok could evolve into Seviper, so...I don't know what to think about that.

2 Pikachu 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.

We have over 400 Pokemon and still to this day, this yellow rat still hogs up everyone's spotlight in the Pokemon universe. Seriously, just like Team Rocket, Pikachu seriously does annoy it's audience. Ash Ketchum could have at least evolve it to Richu to create a new relationship because Pikachu is the prime example of the Pokemon franchise refusing to change which is why so many lost their interest with the franchise today. Even new generation of Pokemon games when Nintendo scrap out some of our favorites from the previous gen. To not make it's return, the yellow rat still remains in every single game that it's already annoying on to itself!

Now that there is Pokemon GO, the hell of the franchise lost came back and now dying. - Erinaliese

I liked Pikachu at first, and he was close to being my favorite Pokemon. But after the Sinooh region, he got so annoying and repetitive. Who was noted as the cutest Pokemon? Pikachu. Who was said to be the coolest character ever? Pikachu. Pichu and Raichu are the evolved and pre-evolved forms and don't even get half the fans. And not only that but it got annoying when people said Pikachu was right for trying to kill Ash. So you're telling me the main character is so ' underrated because of a yellow mouse? Really? I really think that Pikachu would've been better being replaced after the Sinnoh League. Brock left his Onix at home, and we don't see Misty's Togepi with her anymore, so why do we see Ash with this overrated rat?

Pikachu's so dam overrated as hell. Charizard's also overrated but nothing compared to this yellow rodent! I mean, the developers created a item that DOUBLES attack and special attack, and it's ONLY for Pikachu. In OR/AS are costumes, ONLY for Pikachu, and they give it special abilities! Pikachu gets so many buffs and upgrades to make it IMBA and even Raichu obsolete. Since Gen VI the only pokémon in the game, that has a original voice, is Pikachu. Even Pikachu's outdated and no longer the most popular pokémon I think, the developers still doing everything for Pikachu.

But wait I'm not done.
There's also a game called PokéPark Wii, finally a 3D action adventure where you can play as a pokémon and fight freely (not in rounds). And guess what: The only playable main character is that ' PIKACHU. I wanted to play a 3D pokémon adventure with Charmander and beat the game only with Charmander and no need to evolving it, this will never, never happen...

Don't worry, I ...more

There are so many OFFICIAL clones of this Pokemon and so many other Pokemon that can be used as the mascot! Sure, they're cute, but they're overrated. You could even make *Pichu* the new mascot and the franchise would still be easily recognizable from the mascot like it is with Pikachu. Pikachu is getting stale to me. I do also agree that Charizard (the current number one) is overrated, but it's still strong. Pikachu isn't even fully evolved, therefore weaker. Charizard was the second Gen 1 started I chose (X was my first game but it reset) and he was pretty good. I wasn't smart and I had Delphox still (Fennekin was my first and fave) but he was still a good team member. I never had a Pikachu on my team. I would most likely evolve it to a Raichu after getting a good moveset or a certain good TM to teach it.

TL;DR Pikachu is cute but isn't strong

3 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Blastoise isn't overrated Charizard is

Okay I admit, I like Squirtle but YOU BET Blastoise is overrated!

First and foremost It's kinda unoriginal, since we already had a turtle in a different video game (Here is a hint: He was in Mario)

Second: If you're planning to use it only online battle, don't expect too much from It. Most of It's attacks (among them Earthquake what covers It's Electric weakness) are Physical but It's physical attack is really bad, not to mention It's incredibly slow, which is a bad news if you're up against Electric types, whose are famous for their Speed and even when it Mega Evolves It's Speed remains 78, meaning pretty much anything can outspeed It! Speaking of which, Mega Launcher might sounds cool, but you can't do too much with It. It powers up the pulse moves. So what? Someone sends out a Whimsicott what not just resists Water, Dark and Fighting moves (and immunes Dragon) but if It has Prankster ability (and there is no doubt It has) It can send the ugly, fat turtle packing ...more - SapphireQuetzal

WHAT THE HELL! Blastoise is awesome, it isn't overrated, this list is a piece of dog crap. Come on, Ampharos is a good electric type, Charizard was the first full evolved starter Ash got, Pikachu is the mascot, Oshawott gets a lot of hate, Typlosion is very fast for a starter, rayquaza is a very powerful legendary, no one is talking about froakie even, Scizor is just awesome, and Melotta only appeared in a few episodes!

I used to think that this being #3 was a joke, then I went to the ‘top ten water Pokemon’ List, saw all those comments giving it continuous praise & saying it is indeed the best over kyogore, palkia, kingdra, garados, swampert, etc... nope it is not the best water Pokemon get over it genwhinners.

4 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

This thing has been my favorite since the day I saw him in my Diamond version. It's not because he was in a movie; in fact, I saw the movie a long time after I even beat my Diamond version. I just always liked the design, and I never heard any hype about him from any person in real life ever. I never even knew he was considered overrated until just recently when a friend of mine told me. Honestly, it disappoints me to see that it's number 8 on this list, when basically every Gen 1 Pokemon is more overrated.

Yeah, Lucario get's a bit too much hype. Ever since day one they treated this guy like a prophecy. I mean yeah they're strong, but their design looks like a blue Hong Kong Phooey and just seems kinda like furry bait. There's been over advertised Pokemon before like Charizard, Pikachu, Mewtwo and now Greninja. But Lucario takes the cake when it comes to getting under my skin. I don't know, being a character and monster designer myself, it just irks me that this thing isn't a crappy fan character on deviantart or tumblr. This Pokemon is also the Sonic OC of the Pokemon series, I can't tell you how many lucario Oc's I've seen and no offense but they all look like garbage.

Everybody seems to love Lucario because off its design, mega, batting stats, anime portrayal, and so on... BUT lucario fans, just think about it. When you look at his design, doesn't it seem like it is at LEAST a little weird! Is he wearing shorts? What are those metal things on his ands and his chest? Does that make him steel type? And speaking off types, Lucario typing gives him SO many weaknesses. He gets MUCH more hype than he deserves!

This character increases furryism

5 Gardevoir Gardevoir

Just Google Gardevoir. I dare you.

It's not Gardevoir's fault, that are her insane "fans", who adds breasts and so to her. And she's not overrated because even the developers does hate Gardevoir.

You're right! It's not her fault! It's game freak's fault. They even added spike boobs to her mega. How is that unintentional? - SheepBuggy

Pokemon are not sexy. I'm sorry if you think so.

I would argue that a few like Gardevoir and Lucario actually are, but I wouldn't go nearly as far as most people on the Internet. - xandermartin98

It is drawn in an erotic fashion because basement dwelling pokeweebs love it and probably have a body pillow of it

Also it has a chance of being a male, so half of them are traps

Kill it with fire

6 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo is a Pokémon created by science. It is a bipedal, humanoid creature with some feline features. It is primarily gray with a long, purple tail. On top of its head are two short, blunt horns, and it has purple eyes. A tube extends from the back of its skull to the top of its spine, bypassing its neck. It has a defined chest and shoulders, which resemble a breastplate. The three digits on each hand and foot have spherical tips. Its tail is thick at the base, but thins before ending in a small bulb. Mega Mewtwo X is larger and bulkier than its normal state. The horns on its head are longer, extending from V-shaped ridges on its forehead, pointed, and curved upward. It now has two tubes behind its neck, its eyes are light blue, and it has large, purple growths over its shoulders. Its torso is smooth and small compared to its long, bulky limbs, and a Y-shaped line connects the collar and underbelly. Its forearms and thighs each have two raised ridges, and its digits are now longer ...more

Seems like everyone loves Mewtwo but the only reasoning most people have is because he's the "original uber" and because he shared wisdom that was widely accepted already in the movies.

Competitively, he's really good. Of course that is also boring and the fact that he was originally a game-breaker is actually bad thing. I would say Charizard but it actually seems like everyone is turning on him instead.

Mewtwo is overrated but also a great Pokemon. He is my favorite psychic type Pokemon. People are wondering "Why isn't Pikachu or Jigglypuff the most popular Pokemon anymore". That's because when the show came out, all anybody cared about was who was in the show or who was the cutest. Nowadays people care about the Pokemon who have the best evolution or strong Pokemon like Mewtwo.

7 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is not as overrated as Mewtwo. - SheepBuggy

I feel mew is overshadowed by mewtwo too much.

Mew is awesome, learning nearly every move and being perfectly balanced make him a valuable team member if you're ever lucky enough to get him.

Mewtwo is more overrated - 50

8 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza is NOT overrated. It is as strong as the fans and stories say it is. Come on, look at that speed, attacks, moves. This is not overrated. It can destroy the world if it wanted to. Everyone's gotta admit it DOES have a lot of flaws like the fact that dragon ascent lowers the attack power, and it has no teeth. But the it is still very powerful. It can probably win over all the Pokemon on the UNDERrated and OVERrated list with just a few dragon dances and a dragon ascent. And hey, those aren't even it's big guns.

When I see the comment, I found I lot of people saying it is not overrated. Well, I would say it is actually. Don't get me wrong, I know it is very very good and strong, but still overrated. It has 150 attack and special, yes that's good, but why do u need both high attack and special attack, it could have spend one of them to something more useful like speed or defensive stat. Now it has a mediocre speed of 95(bad as a legendary), and 105/90/90 defensive stats, the defensive stat isn't that bad but bad for a Pokemon with 680 total stats. It has four weakness, one of them is a four times weakness and one of them is to stealth rock. Air lock usually isn't useful... And in some top ten lists, people say rayquaza is good because "its hyper beam kills everything". What the heck, do u run hyper beam for rayquaza, if u do, u r probably a noob. If u want to Ohko the opponent, there is Draco meteor, outrage and dragon ascent, they all deal more damage after stab. Out of all the choices why ...more

Wow. Honestly Rayquaza Is non overrated. Rayquaza is a beast for competitive play and I also see people in real life talk about now he is underrated and its true. This 'Rayquaza is Overrated' think is so dumb. Teach your Rayquaza Ice beam. Beats All Dragon types. You name it. My Rayquaza has amazing base stats without Iron, Zinc, Calcium, and HP Up. Or honestly any of them. Rayquaza is my Favourite Pokemon and Rayquaza will take over competitive play because of me. I haven't lost in 2 weeks of competitive play ever since I got Rayquaza in ORAS. Ice Beam, Swords Dance, Dragon Pulse and My best move, Fly. It's easy man just think about it and do not act dumb. If you do not like that move set. Try my Favourite. Ice Beam, Fire Blast, Seismic Toss and Draco Meteor. That's Ice, Ground, Rock, Dark, Dragon, Grass, Steel, Fairy, Flying and Bug. That's 10 whole type Advantages.

Wow just wow. Rayquaza is a lot of things but not overrated. They are legendary and SO POWERFUL AND RARE. It is not overrated at all, just awesome

9 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

How exactly is arceus overrated? How many arceus fans are there? There are very few. Yes it is constantly talked about, but only about how people hate it and how they are complaining about how it is overrated! Mew fans hate him because it took mews place as god. NEWS FLASH! Mew created Pokemon Arceus made the world inhabitable. They are two completely different things. If anything this Pokemon is the pure definition of underrated. Gamefreak never said it was god the fans just created a theory about how he is god, while it makes sense Arceus did not create life, he made the world inhabitable for MEWS creations. If that does not make it through to your thick skulls I don't know what will.

Oh, dear lord. I can't take this anymore. People, 'mons like Arceus and Mewtwo are NOT overrated. They're good. First off, since Arceus can change its type and Judgement's type (for STAB) it is incredibly useful for beating the Elite 4. Secondly, Electric Arceus with Calm Mind, Recover, Judgement, and Ice Beam can take out pretty much anything. Now, on Mewtwo. It has the HIGHEST STATS IN THE GAME. Can't anyone get that through their head? There is a fine line beetween good and overrated.

SO WRONG how is he bad he can learn every (even signature moves like Roar of time Dragon Ascent) he has the highest stats he is the only one who can learn the most powerful move Judgement even his design is awesome whoever voted for this just sucks

What. Arceus can change into any type and creator of pokemon. He is not overrated

10 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Dragonite is my favorite Pokémon, but I do agree it IS overrated. The 11th most overrated, though? What the hell? Dragonite usually gets a lot of crap, and a lot of people think it's the worst pseudo legend, but it's actually pretty good in competitive play, just don't get it near an ice type, but that goes for pretty much all Dragon/Flying Pokémon, so why Dragonite in particular?

Also a last thing, One of the most popular reasons for hate on this thing is because it's derpy looking compared to it's pre-evolution...

... You have got to be kidding me.

People are horrible with Dragonite. In fact, there's an entire video about how "good" Dragonite is, even saying it's immune to everything. Dragonite fans need to shut up.

Design is ok but great stats! There's a difference between "overrated" and "deserving praise"

Dragonair looks better - Ohno

Onix is overrated? I'm not necessarily a fan of him, but I hardly see people talk about Onix.

How is Onix overrated? I haven't heard anyone talk about Onix in a few years. - rennyraccoon

People just think Onix is good cause he got to battle, travel, talk, eat and practically live with Pikachu. Where is Steelix?

12 Absol Absol Absol is a fictional creature in the Pokémon franchise. It was first introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.

Why exactly is Absol on this list? I don't necessarily find it overused or overrated at all. I think it gets the exact amount of praise it deserves, and its Mega Evolution was actually something it most likely needed. I for one really like Absol, and I don't see it talked about nearly the same amount as, say, Pikachu, Charizard, Eevee or Lucario.

65/60/60 defenses, 75 speed, why do people like it

Absol's mega form is a bit overrated, but his normal form isn't. Without the wings, everyone thinks he's "ugly" or "a disaster creator" or whatever. - WildDogGirl

Completely overrated. Somehow this ugly pokemon became the prophet of edgy pre-teens.

13 Pichu Pichu Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves.

This should be in top 10 because Pichu is also probably in the top 10 weakest Pokemon. Also just like Eevee and Pikachu cute means extremely overrated. That's why my friend's favorite Pokemon is Pichu. Wait, and I'm not done. He evolve into Pikachu, the most overrated Pokemon in history. And last, but not least, Pichu was never meant to be a real Pokemon. That's why they don't make Pichu cards anymore and why Pichu and Pikachu are both basic.

Pichu is underrated compared to Pikachu. - SheepBuggy

Pichu isn't one of the original 150 Pokemon. He was made for popularity at the late part of the era when cute Pokemon were way more popular than they are now. Now, the developers plan is failing i

14 Magikarp Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

Magikarp is overrated and underrated. He's overrated because people joke around and say stuff like "I beat Mewtwo with Magikarp" or "Magikarp is the God of all Pokemon. He's also underrated because he evolves into Gyarardos.

Magikarp is one of those Pokemon like Metapod that are popular because its terrible in battle - SheepBuggy

Sorry but I think when people say this Pokemon is the greatest is either joking, will say it will evolve into a powerful beast that Magikarp isn't really loves fishes. When I played Pokemon Yellow when I was a kid it was a really useless Pokemon. Splash is just the same as Metapod's harden. Everyone who says that Magikarp is the greatest Pokemon ever should just shut up and just get a braincell and realise its just another Metapod.

One of the worst gen 1 Pokémon.

15 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

It's so overrated people wont shut up about it anywhere I go, its fans also bash me and MY favorites. Greninja is overrated and has a horrible fanbase.

Totally agree, every time I say something about Oshawott, people yap at me about Greninja being better. - InklingSethO

Why isn't Greninja higher? It should definitely be first on the list. It's so overrated and its fans are complete jerks. The last year I keep hearing Greninja, Greninja, Greninja and it's so annoying.

Hate this damn thing. And Ash Greninja is a retarded idea. - InklingSethO

Why isn't greninja around 6 - 1? He's pretty overrated more than Charizard

16 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Ok, for anybody who is saying Gyarados dies in one hit from Lightning not everyone has the courtesy to run an Electric type on their team. Plus, only 3 moves that are Electric are actually viable in game. Plus most Water and/ or Flying types will die in one hit from an Electric attack like Thunderbolt, so what's the difference that's going to be made?
Does Ferrothorn suck for its 4x Fire weakness? Does Dragonite for its 4x Ice weakness? The fact that the only argument people can make is that "4x lightning weakness' is completely annoying.
And at least it's immune to Spikes, can fight back well against Grass types and has an Ability in Intimidate which works much better than Abilities like Torrent and Rain Dish

Gyarados sucks. Simply put any electric attack will kill it. None of that "oh but it can have earthquake" that's crap. Any electric attack will kill it STAB or not. It can be easily out sped too and jolly gyarados cannot out speed a jolteon. If you think it can then you have never actually looked at the stats or tried it out and are helplessly looking for excuses to keep him of the list. His mega doesn't even help him giving him 3 additional weakness and only 2 extra type coverings. Gyarados has some good special defense but being its only special weakness is 4x effective to it, its worthless. Gyarados is an overrated Pokemon guarded by his nostalgia sheild. I started in gen 1 too so don't say I wouldn't know because I started later

Gyarados is overrated as heck. If you want an honest sum-up for it... Here goes... Gyarados is a glass cannon with a load out full of generic and overrated moves (looking at you, Hyper Beam...). If Gyarados fought Milotic, we all know who would win... Milotic has the most overpowered move ever... Coil. Coil raises attack and defense. Ultimately, you can turn Milotic into a super-tank, while Gyarados... Well...

Gyarados gets killed by lightning attacks?

Garchomp and ice types
Dragonite and ice types
Charizard and rock types (even though Charizard's pretty bad)
Chansey and fighting types
Hydreigon and fairies
Jolteon and ground types
I could go on.

Just because a Pokemon has a 4x weakness doesn't mean it's bad! - SirBizmo

17 Ampharos Ampharos Ampharos is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II . It evolves from Flaaffy starting at level 30 . It is the final form of Mareep . It can Mega Evolve into Mega Ampharos using the Ampharosite, in which it becomes an Electric/Dragon-type .

How the hell is Ampharos overrated? If anything, he's under appreciated.

How is it overrated? It's underrated to me.

Really? Ampharos is so UNDERRATED! That's why they gave it a Mega Evolution!

LISTEN! For a while Ampharos WAS underrated, but now it is! I hate most underrated pokemon videos because it is ALWAYS Ampharos! I mean he was underrated FOR A WHILE but now he is should be right up there with Charizard! Everyone always says how GOOd and underrated he is, but he gets a LOT more attention then he should!

19 Typhlosion Typhlosion


Rather than voting for the ever so overrated charizard, you people voted for typhlosion, the underappreciated second to charizard.

How much money to you want to bet that every single person who voted this were people who were either trying to comment on how stupid this thing being on this list is or just being salty because Charizard was number one and wanting to bash the next fire starter?

Everyone who voted here should have hands down voted for charizard. This thing has been way too overhyped by not only the fanbase, but also the creators of the series. 2 megas, pokken, AND SMASH BROS! FOR GODS SAKE, JUST VOTE FOR CHARIZARD!

Wow.. Instead of voting for Charizard, you voted for Typhlosion. Charizard is a dragon, the most generic design in the world. If you say that people only chose Typlosion because he is fire, then people only chose Charizard because he is a dragon. In comparison, Charizard is no better. THEY HAVE THE SAME STATS. Feraligator may be better, but Typhlosion isn't horrible.

Wow. The one who chose typhlosion was 100% a genwunner. Typhlosion is a better alternative to charizard. They have (really) same stats but they are things that make Typhlosion better. First it is pure fire. So he isn't half-killed by stealth rock. Second it learns the strongest special fire type move: Eruption. If Typhlosion is at full health (use it as a lead) eruption will have 150 power. Throw a choice specs on this thing and it will do MASSIVE damage to every pokemon that doesn't quad-resist it.

Don't assume that the person who put this here was a genwunner. There's a chance that the person who put it here actually thought it was overrated, and didn't just hate on it because it wasn't Charizard. Also, if you think about, Cyndaquil is pretty used a lot as well like Charmander. Not saying Typhlosion is bad at all, I have one, but it is used a lot more than the other starters.

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

Nowadays people care about evolution and strong Pokemon more than when the show came out. But Eevee is pretty weak. However, it has many evolution so now it is more popular. And as a bonus, many people think its cute. Back when nobody cared about Pokemon who evolved from stones, Eevee wasn't that popular. Since Eevee can evolve into 9 different Pokemon using stones, he is a fan favorite.

Oh, man. Where do I begin with Eevee? Just go to Amazon and search up "Pokemon plush" I dare you! Over half the stuff will be (mostly bootlegged) Eeveelution merchandise! These guys are way too gimmicky and I bet that if Pikachu wasn't Ash's partner and therefore the Pokemon mascot, Eevee would step into the spotlight in a heartbeat! These guys are everywhere and come on people! There are more Mons out there than just Pikachu, Eevee and its gimmicky evolutions!

Okay... CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY EEVEE HAS AN EXCLUSIVE Z-MOVE? Eevee is basically a blank canvas. A boring, dull, white canvas. But you choose how you fill that blank canvas! With 8 Eeveelutions and counting, the possible strategies and battles are endless. SO WHY WOULD YOU NOT EVOLVE IT?! Unless you're talking Focus Sash Rattata, pre evolved Pokemon are always weaker than their evolutions. Evolve your Eevee. Fill the boring canvas.

All the evolutions are the same except different colors +one extra feature.

Snivy is overrated compared to Oshawott, and he isn't even overrated in the first place. People just prefer Oshawott over Piplup because Piplup is petty and rude in the anime. - SheepBuggy

Umbreon is the most overrated eevee. Just because it's the dark type all the people are screaming how cool it is and overshadowing espeon. So it's a wall, crap attack so if it ended up someone roaring it and sending it crying back and the 2nd to last Pokemon faints that Umbreon is screwed. I prefer Vaporeon and I wish it would get more attention. Mine could take hits and knock out a couple of pokes on the way.

It has crap attacking stats because it's A WALL! A good one at that, he doesn't look like he can take a hit, but guess what? 90/110/130 defenses! Those are simply amazing! It gets foul play, and that makes anything hit hard, it gets moonlight, so restoration is a go, it gets heal bell, so status problems are a joke, wish along with its high bp for great sweeper heals, curse b pass too, if you feel like trick rooming a gyro baller, so much great wall sets, so much idiots.

This Pokemon is so overrated it should be number one and it's not just overrated by Pokemon fans
Its overrated in the show Gary has an umbreon umbreon saves an eevee in the eevee and friends
Short it had a surprise why can't the Pokemon company use someone like vaporeon or glaceon
So if you wanna make the right choice vote umbreon 4 overrated Pokemon president

Most overrated eeveelution. People's mindset when looking at it is " dark type so badaz! "

Created by Ken Sugimori, Meowth first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. In addition, it was one of the Pokémon to get an Alolan variant. It later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff more.

Meowth? Overrated? MEOWTH that's... wrong.

Why is Meowth here he is not overrated

He is so underrated

I love Meowth! He's so funny!

25 Missingno

How can people even call this a Pokemon? It's a goddamned glitch!

Everyone says "If you catch it, your game is jacked up! " That's a load of bullcrap. I've caught 4 of them, and did anything happen? NO! I even brought them to Pokemon Stadium, but you can't battle with them due to them being unofficial. - Goatworlds

This thing gave me nightmares


Missingno... body cares about this thing anymore. B-)

26 Scizor Scizor

Not at all. It's only weak to ONE TYPE and the defenses are greats! You could destroy with it! Scizor is just loved for it's great use in casual and maybe even competitive use. Steel-bug is a great combinAation

I remember posting that large paragraph about why I don't like scizor so much. I still agree with it. But I'd like to add something to that rant. It has one move set. One, stupid, moveset. Bullet punch, bug bite, swords dance, and protect. That's all I see in the competitive game and it's more predictable then klinklang. How do you even do that. Maybe it's just me, everyone has their own experiences, right? Maybe you knocked people out of the park with scizor, but I just never stuck to it. Maybe it will change in a long while. But for now... Go Escavalier!

Somebody said one stupid move set? That is a stupid comment. It can also run all out attacker of bug bite bullet punch knock off and superpower and hold a life orb or choice band, it can also run roost, pursuit, uturn swords dance and Defog to replace any move I said, u call that one move set? Klinklang isn't way more predictable... It is notable that technician bullet punch is great and after one or two swords dance it is hard to stop.

Scizor IS my favorite Pokemon, but I see WAY TOO MANY of these things on the Fire-Type-dominant UU tier. So I have to admit that it's a little overrated - SaltyMcSalt

27 Froakie Froakie

I hate my friend because she only cares about this stupid frog. She acts like her toy Froakie is a living thing. She won't trade her "froakie family" for ANYTHING. I mean ANYTHING. She said that she would trade any of her cards but FROAKIE. She said exactly "I wIll trade anything except the Froakie family." Not like I would trade my Arceus card for that stupid weak blue turd. My magicarp card won against it. She cried and said it wasn't fair and that Froakie was the strongest Pokemon ever. Good Lord, looks like magicarp isn't the weakest. - ThunderdrumsRule

But I have hardly even seen any people saying they are going to choose Froakie as their starter? I think Fennekin is more overrated.

Froakie is probably the worst choice since it's a disadvantage against most of the gym leaders.

Am I the only one who wanted a Fennekin even after seeing the starter evolutions?

28 Serperior Serperior

Excuse me, how is Serperior overrated?

I actually like Serperior but I agree that this crack pairing is absolute bullcrap. But is Serperior really THAT overrated? I think that Sceptile is a bit more overrated. Serperior's a victim to these infamous vore fanarts while Sceptile got almost only badass fanart. It doesn't help either that Serperior haters give their own comments thumbs up.

Serperior and Lilligant is by far the better couple!

It's underrated

Serperior is the most popular Gen 5 starter despite being the worst. That's enough to prove it's overrated. *cough Charizard cough* - SirBizmo

29 Ditto Ditto Ditto is a character from Pokemon. It's a normal type Pokemon that has the ability to shape shifter into anything. It's weakness is fighting type Pokemon and is a gender less Pokemon.

Just because a Pokemon isn't great doesn't mean it's overrated? I don't know how many care for ditto one way or the other. It's just there so people can use it for breeding Pokemon easily

Ditto is not overrated. There is a difference between overrated and popular. PS, he is similar to Eevee (who is also overrated) and Arceus.

I don't seem him as overrated. I've never seen Ditto used in battle (not even NPC). He's mainly just caught for breeding purposes, they might pay attention to Ditto's with stronger Status, IVs, etc, but that's to make a strong Pokemon. He's just used so Breeders can breed their Pokemon for better ones.

ish op

30 Blaziken Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Fire/Fighting Type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise .

Why Blaziken is in the list? It become powerful in generation 5, because he was one of the most popular Pokemon in generation 3. In generation 4, Blaziken was the one of the forgotten Pokemon. Game Freak was putting effort on Blaziken in X and Y game and anime, because there will be Hoenn remake. If Blaziken was overrated, then he should got another Mega like Charizard and Mewtwo in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Blaziken did not appear in a single episode in Black and White anime, while Lucario appeared in anime, generation 3, 4, 5, 6 in row. Blaziken fan got crazy, so it's not Blaziken fault.

Blaziken kills Sceptile's glory.

Swampert and Sceptile got megas in oras. Blaziken got his is xy. That's how overrated it is.

It's the only Uber starter, your argument is invalid - SaltyMcSalt

31 Lugia Lugia

I think Lugia is over and over and over-rated. First, she (i think she's a female) is way uglier and less powerful than Ho-Oh. She is not majestic and she is the monotone "guardian of the seas". She simply doesn't have any special feature or power, like Ho-Oh's rainbow trail he leaves when he flies.
I love Ho-Oh, and I don't hate Lugia, but I still think she is overrated.

To be honest I think Lugia is pretty underrated. It makes storms with its wings so it decided that it would be better to not destroy humans with its power. It sacrificed its happiess for the sake of everyone else!

Why do so many people like this white turd? I'd probably beat it with a weavile, and that's saying something

Lugia, while awesome (the Power of One movie was great too) is constantly talked about as the "Best Legendary". So many people think this pseudo-Water Pokémon is the greatest Legendary Pokémon ever, and many call it their favorite. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, it's all in good fun and opinion, but really Lugia isn't the best Pokémon, competitively or designwise. While it has access to Multiscale, Lugia often falls to its knees when facing a Rock, Dark, or Electric type, three of its most common weaknesses. Despite that being said, Lugia is a wonderful tank Pokémon that can set up with Toxic and just Roost when it's feeling hurt. Unfortunately, Lugia is outmatched in Speed by many other Uber Pokémon. So why use it when you can go for a bulkier tank like Deoxys Defense Forme with Recover, or a better Psychic Special Attacker like Mega Mewtwo Y? Designwise, Lugia isn't the best either in my opinion, when there are cooler-looking Legendary Pokémon like Mewtwo, ...more

34 Arcanine Arcanine Arcanine is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Generation 1, it is a fire type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Growlithe. Legends tell of its fighting alongside a general and conquering a whole country. Arcanine is also known for its high speed, capable of running over 6,200 more.

Ugh! This Pokemon! Everywhere I go, a favourite. People say he's legendary, when he's not, they called him the legendary Pokemon, he's talked about when it's not even without him, and he's on every top 10 top best Pokemon list going. His designs a mix between a dog and a tiger, which I suppose is cool, howe et there are many much cooler designs. Stay wise yeah, I see that, but I don't really see how that can affect likeability.

He was ORIGINALLY going to be a legendary in Red and Blue. So they aren't too far off. He was replaced with Moltres as a legend instead of him. - shawnmccaul22

Too much fans! His fanbase is horrible. Even everyone in deviantart likes him, flooding my favorite Pokemon Luxray browsing. Why do so many people love him and think he's awesome just because he looks so 'powerful'? Why do fans keep pairing with my favorite Pokemon Luxray? People won't shut up about it whenever I browse the internet about Pokemon. They need to chill and slow down!

Technically he is a ledgedary It was replaced by Moltres since it makes way more sense to have 3 birds then 2 Birds and some dog

Base 110 attack is pretty good

39 Celebi Celebi

Weakness: Bug Dark Fire Flying Ghost Ice Poison

I doubt a Poison Jab from a Beedrill would be able to one shot a Celebi. Plus, Celebi's faster and would probably one-shot it first. - SirBizmo

OH NO ITS CELEBI! Wait I brought my beedrill! Quick poison jab!

He's not even close to overrated

40 Hydreigon Hydreigon Dark/Dragon Pokemon, thought to be similar to Hydra . Drei is german for three, as in the name it relates to the head count of the stage of evolution .

So? Ya gonna have weaknesses. Dragonite, garchomp? It ain't like they don't have 4x weaknesses. Ya gonna have a WEAKNESS! Well, rotom wash is different... That things the devil.

I don't think that hydration gets enough attention in fact, if anything he should get more attention

Hydreigon's awesome! It's got great stats, an amazing design, a good moveset, etc. The only thing dragging it down is the fact that it evolves at a really late level. - SirBizmo

I actually don't think Hydreigon is overrated consitering is one of the few good pokemon from gen 5 - USGC

41 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

Psychics were pretty overpowered back then, but it still bothers me that he evolves by trade

Alakazam was so awesome in gen 1

42 Feraligatr Feraligatr

You suck snivy, mudkip, dragonite, and arceus are so much more overrated than feraligatr

Snivy sucks, Mudkip is probably better than Feraligatr, and why would you compare Dragonite or Arceus to Feraligatr? This is one of the dumbest comparisons I've seen all day. - SirBizmo

He's epic he's so good he's overrated I did a lets play soloing heart gold just him no one else in my party personally I think he's underrated

Feraligatr is badass it's a little underrated compared to Pokemon like Dragonite or Charizard but it's awesome

Why is he/she on this list... And a statement: he's/she's cute for no reason. I know it sounded stupid but it was a random statement...

43 Meloetta Meloetta Meloetta is a Mythical Pokémon from the Unova Region. It is a Normal and Psychic Type. When it uses the move Relic Song, it turns into a Normal and Fighting Type and changes its appearance.

Once again, another innocent Pokemon that creepy fans want to date. I'd hate to be this Pokemon at times.

Go on the gts and search up any legendary.

Oh boy, another generic overrated mythical, that's just great...

Hate this thing - InklingSethO

44 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

Darkrai is good, but why? Why does everyone treat it like it's the best thing that ever happened to the world. And nobody notices it. Even the games treat it like it's better than Cresselia, who it should be equal too.

I agree with the comments saying that Cresselia should get more praise. Darkrai got an entire movie dedicated to it and Cresselia got a single episode and never was spoken of again. Cresselia might be the best tank in OU and yet Darkrai is in Uber? Not only that, but he doesn't deserve the tier at all! I can one shot him with Primal Groudon. It is sort of like Darkrai and Cresselia aren't even a legit Legendary Duo, they are so unequal. Fight for Cresselia's equal rights!

I like darkrai, but fighting them is a damn nightmare!

Oh my god this thing is so overrated. As much as I wanted to give my vote to Mr.WaterTurtle at number 3, I couldn't resist voting for Darkrai. It's fans don't acknowledge how overrated it is, similar to Decidueye fans and Blastoise fans, and well, basically every fan of an overrated Pokemon.

It's concept is cool, but seriously. People only use it for dark void, and that move was nerfed in Sun/Moon. Anyone can predict a dark void Darkrai (A.K.A, all of them). It got it's own ' movie, and Cresselia is just sitting here, being underrated as usual. I killed this with a Leafeon on battle spot. A LEAFEON. Who belongs in PU now?

It's design is...okay? I just wish I hadn't seen it's legs...No wonder it's purpose is to give bad dreams.

Let me end this off with asking you: do you use Darkrai for anything other than dark void, or to show off?

45 Sylveon Sylveon Sylveon is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Fairy type Pokemon, and one of the many evolved forms of Eevee. It was one of the first Fairy Pokemons revealed, although its typing was not shown till later. Classified as the Intertwining Pokemon, Sylveon has ribbon-like more.

Actually, Sylveon deserves the place of the fairy 'mascot' (next to xerneas) the design is really creative and still looks like an eevee. It's also pretty beast in competitive so I don't think it's that bad

Oh God, Sylveon is the epitome of trying too hard. Flesh ribbons? Seriously? Gigantic blue eyes and pink fur? FLESH BUTTERFLY BOWIE? It has none of the subtle cuteness we see in pokémon like Flareon or Leafeon, it's just diabetes. A disgusting, sugar laden pink frosted creme filled doughnut that will give you instant diabetes on contact. Not to mention it's literally called a FAIRY, meaning it's trying EXTRA hard to be cute, which is totally un-cute. And what does it evolve with? THE POWER OF LOVE. Wow, real original, not like a very similar concept was introduced with the two more competent eeveelutions in gen 3-- not to mention, again, it's being a complete Tryhard. God, Sylveon, do us all a favor and amputate the ribbons; you don't need frills and crud to be an acceptable eeveelution.

Oh my god... It's second most overrated Eeveelution...

It's so broken my adamant nature scizor with 31 ivs in attack and 252 evs in attack it used steel wing on a sylveon in the battle royale and it survived at yellow hp.YELLOW! 200 attack vs. base 65 defense and it survived in yellow. Also this crap online about it beating garchomp when that would never happen.

48 Furret Furret

It is not very overrated...

I love Furret. She was my favourite Johto Pokemon when I was younger (I grew up with Unova)

I hardly ever see Turret on the inernet retard

49 Gallade Gallade

Gallade is good but I don't get why this guy gets so much love. his speed is only decent at best and brave bird pretty much kills him in one hit.

As much as I love ballade, even I can't deny how overrated he is. his speed is only decent at best, plus brave bird and shadow claw are pretty much guaranteed to OHKO him

He is better than gardevoir

Nope. Underrated.

50 Emolga Emolga

Emolga is a Pikachu flying squirrel. Get over it, it's based off the worst Pokemon in the game.

So you're basically saying Sunkern is better than Pikachu. Pikachu's bad, but it's not the worst Pokemon in the game. And just because Emolga's based off Pikachu doesn't make it as bad as Pikachu. You're right that it's awful, but no one likes it! Bad and overrated are really different! - SirBizmo

It's the second cutest ever! Plus it can kill Kyurem! I did by accident (At least I saved my game before the battle) - Goatworlds

Just another Pika clone

It's a magical Pikachu, flying through the sky...
