Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon
The Top Ten Most Overrated Pokemon
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
I half agree it can't do anything to a rock type but why use a typhlosion - Yoshidude
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
Here are some of the Pokemon I think are the most overrated:
Charizard: This Pokemon is still worshiped by so many people, and it's ridiculous considering how many competitive teams have stealth rock. I find it hard to call it the most overrated though because of how many people hate on it.
Blastoise: I like blastoise, okay, who doesn't? But on so many top ten lists, for instance, best water types, it gets a crap ton of praise and attention, and unlike charizard, it hardly ever gets hated on. Its offensive stats are just too mediocre for it to be considered a great Pokemon.
Lucario: Okay, so first let's look at this Pokemon's typing- it has a whole bunch of resistances, and useful fighting type STAB, but first of all do you know how many competitive teams run earthquake? It's the reason I've always thought steel is one of the most overrated types. And lucario's below average defensive stats don't help. I can't help liking him though, just because of his badass ...more - datrandomguy
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!
You know. I have a theory. The reason Pikachu is popular is because it's popular. Let me explain. Back when pokemon was only two video games, it was the series that was popular. Then, when they decided that Pikachu would be the mascot, he instantly became popular, maybe because it was cute, but mostly because he represents pokemon. Basically, Pikachu is popular because of pokemon. Than because it was popular they start to put Pikachu EVERYWHERE, and gave it special treatment. Because of the overexposure of Pikachu it became even more popular, to create a never ending cycle that makes Pikachu a very overrated pokemon. - Eclipsmon
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
SO overrated.. people think it's so cute and kawaii and even in the anime its ridiculous how strong they make this crappy rat seem...
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!
Lucario is my favourite Pokemon of all time in my opinion, but I have to agree that he is overrated! Literally I can't stand his furry bait images on Google, Tumblr and deviant art! - UltraLunalaX
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
Gardevoir is not overrated. It's just a nice looking, powerful Pokemon that has some weird fans. - pandaluver3009
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 terrible it's caught at suck a high level that most of it's good moves are inacsessible and I beat one with my steelix arceus has a higher base stat total than mewtwo and it's not overrated mewtwo wasn't even in the original 150 pokemon it was added later in blue
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.
Mega Mewtwo Y only added weird headphone things and placed its tail onto its head, and Mega Mewtwo X looks...(How should I say this)UGLY.
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!
Blastoise is a great Pokémon and one of my personal favorites. Also, it isn't unoriginal just for being a turtle. That's stupid. In that logic, Infernape is unoriginal too. Ever heard of Donkey Kong? Look at Amoongus. Ever heard of the Toads? Anyways, while Blastoise isn't that good against electric types, that's basically it. Just don't use it against electric types. Simple as that. I will agree that Blastoise is very popular and maybe even overrated, but there are many things about it that makes it more appealing. It looks better than Charizard in my humble opinion, but ignoring appearances, it has great defense, special attack and HP. Give it special moves like Hydro Pump, Flash Cannon, Ice Beam and Scald, and you can take a hit and dish it right back. Using these moves will make Blastoise a viable Pokemon and not anything that should be ignored, for it doesn't have enough popularity along with hate to make it #5.
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.
A lot of people think magikarp is the best Pokemon of all time and joke about it being the best Pokemon in the world! He was even added to top ten strongest Pokemon list! Really? How can a useless floppy fish that only knows splash be a strong Pokemon? More like one of the weakest Pokemon ever in my opinion! - UltraLunalaX
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.
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.
Oh my god Greninja. Where do I even start? Well, here goes.
Greninja is treated like god because it got a form called Ash-Greninja, and because he looked cool to many people. I personally think it DOESN'T look THAT cool. And the shiny. Everyone just goes on and on about useless crap about the shiny. "It's so cool! " "The black makes it look like a real ninja! " Yea, okay. I give you points for that last one. It does look like a ninja, but Greninja isn't even THAT strong. 103 special attack? Please. You call that "EXTREMELY" strong? They hate Delphox because they think Greninja is badass and go like "Delphox's ear hair looks ugly and it's bipedal! I hate the fact that it's bipedal! " Greninja is bipedal too, ffs. "The toes on it look ugly! " Have you seen Greninja's toes? And the tongue too, oh my god that tounge as a scarf DOES NOT work for me. Greninja lovers should get out from underneath the rock they live and realize how overrated it is. It was Japan's most popular Pokemon, ...more - lynxa
Hate this damn thing. And Ash Greninja is a retarded idea. - InklingSethO
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.
Mew might be a little bit overrated. Sometimes, it seems like its put at the same level as arceus. Mew is good, but not great - mwizgirdgoseahawks
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.
It deserves praise. It is overrated I admit, but I love this derpy dragon. - pandaluver3009
This thing is SO overrated, in fact its not even good, one word - ice, another word - stealth rocks.
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.
I like the eeveelutions, but they are pretty overrated. The fanart is just stupid, and they shippers are just plain WEIRD, shipping eeveelutions are like shipping dog breeds. The eeveelutions have nice lure and design, but honestly, they suck for competitive use. - Staruli
Overrated: Sylveon Umbreon Espeon and Jolteon. Underrated: vaporeon glaceon leafeon and flareon. I know kids are gonna get salty at me saying things like vaporeon is underrated and Sylveon being overrated. The thing is that the salty kids that do that..why...you exist to at least be decent.
To be honest I think the eeveelutions are very overrated, and not all of them are all that useful in battle. But I can say their designs are neat and simple, and I feel like they're a nice addition to the team to those who don't play competitively. Either way, they are quite popular, but they can still be respectable.
They are REALLY overrated, but I love 'em. SOME do suck in battle, but Umbreon, Sylveon, and Espeon are pretty good. - Swiftfrost
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
Now, now, now... where do I start?
I have seen this face on every list. I search top ten best mons, he appears. I search best flying type, he appears. I search best dragon type, he appears. I search best anything, he appears. Seriously? You all know that Kyogre could OHKO this man with Ice Beam. Wait wait wait, but he's Anything Goes! That's because he's so overrated he got into Anything Goes when even Kyogre can beat him >:/
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.
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?
The only reason Onix is on here is because people who just started playing Pokemon and watched the gym leaders' Onix destroy things, then they test it out in showdown and find out it sucks - SaltyMcSalt
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.
Eevee is mostly popular on the side of the pokemon community that enjoys art, merchandise and things like making pokemon characters and ocs. It and it's eeveelutions are generally very cute, and have very simple but fulfilling designs. Not to mention, not only is it cute, but Eevee is a very unique pokemon, with a lot of potential. Eeveelutions can be very useful if you want a quick type fill-in for your team, but aren't the best for competitive play, which is completely fine! I think Eevee deserves some of it's praise, and it's understandable why so many people like it, but it certainly is overrated, I just feel like it doesn't deserve that much hate, because for the most part it's popularity is very reasonable. - turniphekc
Although it is cute, it is also ugly as well. Besides, all of its evolutions are crap except Umbreon. I HATE Normal types, except for some, but some of my least fave pokemon in this type are Lillipup, Eevee, Jigglypuff, and Regigigas.
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.
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!
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
He's WEAK! People say he's strong but most pokemon on this list could wipe the floor of him
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.
Absol is one of my top favorite pokemon! I'm my opinion it's underrated. - pandaluver3009
I get one of these dudes for every playthrough of my X game- I find Absol very fun, and I think it's design is really neat! I've gotten attached to this pokemon overtime, this is mainly my opinion though ahah- - turniphekc
65/60/60 defenses, 75 speed, why do people like it
Oy, he's cooler than all the legendary & mythical Pokemon COMBINED!
Best starter. And someone bring darkrai into this.
The best starter. Not overrated at all.
Plus his mega evolution god - CaptainChipmunk
WHAT IS THIS LIST?!
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.
Typhlosion is NOT overrated!
Typhlosion is one-of-few pokemon that learn eruption.
Moves: eruption, flamethrower, thunder punch, earthquake
Item: choice scarf
Use that set and you will sweep any team with Typhlosion!
If anything, typhlosion is underrated.
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.
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
Nope idc gyarados is a beast that evolves from the worst and he deserves the love - pandaluver3009
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...
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.
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
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.
Out of all the eeveelutions, Umbreon is the least creative and the least useful. Its attacking stats are just shameful and it has an OBVIOUS disadvantage against Steel.
Its attack stats are bad because it isn't SUPPOSED TO BE USED to attack - ZeUmbreon
Pichu is a little bit overrated, But trust me it's evolution is infinitely times more - OrangeWallaby
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
Meowth? Overrated? MEOWTH that's... wrong.
Meowth is definitely underrated compared to Charizard Pikachu and Eevee
Why is Meowth here he is not overrated
He is so underrated
Oshawott is my favourite gen. 5 starter but I don't get a lot of people say it's hated I mean yeah snivy is popular but at least most snivy fans acknowledge its popularity - Gamer4life
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
Oshawott is not overrated that's Snivy oshawott is tough I beat the entire game with just him (that means Elesa) - CaptainChipmunk
Snivy is overrated. Not Oshawott. - Goatworlds
ITS FAKE I once played red and I spent 12 hours trying to get one and not one it's so fake
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
HE CAN MAKE IT TO WHERE NOT EVEN STARTING A NEW GAME CAN FIX YOUR PROBLEMS SO IF YOU HAVE MISSINGNO YOU MIGHT AS WELL BOOK A GRAVE FOR YOUR GAME
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.
*Sorry, I meant to say they have the exact same best, not the exact same best.
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.
Froakie hasn't even came out yet and people still call him the best generation 6 starter
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!
Serperior is the most popular Gen 5 starter despite being the worst. That's enough to prove it's overrated. *cough Charizard cough* - SirBizmo
It's not overrated
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.
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
I can't lie-- Lugia has a beautiful design in my opinion, and I really like this pokemon. I personally don't think he's overrated, but he isn't the strongest legendary out there. - turniphekc
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.
At least "She" didn't scream for 3 gens straight in the back sprite. And at least it is more cute than majestic. Besides, who said "she" was less powerful? One Hydro Pump = RIP Ho-oh. "She" can make storms with the wings unlike Ho-Oh - lynxa
1: Let's just get the most commonly known thing out of the way, more than half of Lugia's fan art is sadly either vore or some sort of fetish, I'm not kidding. Go to google, look up Lugia and scroll down a little, you would at least see one piece of vore or inflation art.
2: It's not the strongest Pokemon. Yes, it's a legendary, but my god, it's not the strongest one, it's probably one of the weakest box art legendaries. You have no idea how many people I met who think this is the strongest Pokemon. Yes, It can blow down towns with its wings (Pokedex), but considering other legendaries like Rayquaza, who guards the atmosphere, Groudon, who literally can create and control a nuclear reactor, Palkia, a Pokemon that can bend space, or even Ho-oh who can resurrect the dead, this thing is nowhere near them.
And to add on, this was a Pokemon that wasn't even considered to be made until late development of Pokemon Gold and Silver, and it's almost 2x as popular ...more
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!
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!
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?
I like darkrai, but fighting them is a damn nightmare!
How the heck is this pokemon overrated? I say this Pokémon is one of the most underrated eeveelution ever, but over Flareon.
X has BLUE FLAMES. Y just looks like a Charizard that grew old and got put in the washing machine. I will never understand why Y is more popular than X.
This is the literal opposite of overrated - SaltyMcSalt
He's kinda underrated - lynxa
This one isn't as cool as X - Goatworlds
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!
People say, "Arcanine is my favorite Pokemon," "I really like Arcanine." I like Arcanine's design, but compared to some guys, it's not all that great. AND in Trugreen7's "top 10 pokemon nobody hates", AND "Top 10 most handsome Pokemon," video, ARCANINE WAS AT NUMBER 1! This thing, sure I love it and all, but it's OVERRATED. It's not as strong as people believe he is. Sure, he's strong, but there are more fire types stronger than him - lynxa
People talk about how cool his design is, when it's not very remarkable. I mean, his Gen 1 sprite certainly rises above the rest, but looking good compared to sprites from Red and Blue isn't exactly an accomplishment. It just means you're not an abomination.
No-one likes miltank
Miltank is actually kinda underrated - lynxa
But I got through Whitney's Miltank with no problem... Then her Clefairy flamethrowered my Meganium...
I wish it's a troll
A great pokemon for battle, even my personal favorite. True fans of this pokemon are actually really small in numbers. So no, it's not really overrated in any real way. - VelocityOfNone
This is underrated. I never see this thing used, yet it has a pretty decent stat total.
How could someone have a crush on a Pokemon that's a rabbit who went through a laffy taffy puller. But being victimized by teen fans doesn't make poor Lopunny overrated. Leave her alone folks.
Just like Gardevoir
Google LOPUNNY AND LOOK AT ALL THE IMAGES
I DAR YOU -_- - quintonshark8713
Charmeleon is underrated and people are really stupid - ihateoverratedpokemon
Charmeleon is underrated - ihateoverratedpokemon
Actually, Lapras is pretty underrated
I wish I could add one to my team someday
It's actually pretty underrated - lynxa
Why you hating on Treecko? It's a sole grass type! There are so many other sole grass types you could pick on!
Ash's killed Darkrai in the anime. All hail Treecko.
What did Treecko ever do to you! He is a grass dragon by the way.
So many haters tee clod a great grass type
I actually like Sylveon. I do agree that it's kinda overrated, and that's probably because of it's appearance, but it really is quite pretty. It's also a machine. Have a Sylveon with max level and the right moveset, and it can obliterate many dragon, dark, or fighting types. In my opinion, this is one of the strongest fairy types out there.
I like Sylveon. Most sylveon haters ARE espeonXumbreon shippers. Which is kinda disturbing that you would ship pokemon. It's like shipping two races. You're not shipping two characters with personal feelings and nature, but TWO GROUPS. This race may have a person who falls in love with another race then what you ship them with. Please get a hobby and stop 'shipping' pokemon. You can write a love story between them, but STOP SHIPPING THEM. That's just wrong.
Everyone loves Sylveon it's so cute! huh who is that light purple Pokemon? people always forget about Espeon and focus on Sylveon Umbreon and Vaporeon
This blinds me, its overrated for a completely WRONG reason. the ribbons are fine but nit the bow. its body shape looks disturbing.. - namesnipe
EXCUSE me? Who said piplup is a water/steel type? Piplup, for the record, is a plain water type! I personally don't have a problem with piplup but I just wanted to make that clear.
Piplup is a pure water type. And it's Steel, not steal. I wouldn't be surprised if both of those comments were by the same person...
Piplup is so cute but he is kinds overrated
Piplup? Overrated? What's going on?
Psychics were pretty overpowered back then, but it still bothers me that he evolves by trade
Alakazam was so awesome in gen 1
Uh. Alakazam is great. - Userguy44
Kyogre is an underrated legendary Pokemon
Nothing will scar me more than that human Kyogre transformation video I saw years ago.
"It was just luck that Kyogre lost to groudon, " kids at my school say whenever I say I like Groudon better.
This is an UNDERRATED legendary pokemon!
Extremely overrated like come on everyone chooses Charizard and him getting 2 Mega Evos! Is just stupid
Mega charizard x is awesome he doesn't get a lot of damage from stealth rock anymore just some
Mega charizard X is really good. I'm pretty sure charizard can learn solar beam and with drought that takes care of its weaknesses to water and rock.
This guy is lower than Furret? Give me a break.
I love its meme
furret ima walking furret furret FURRET but y is this overrated-_-
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
Nobody even uses him (although, it's for good reasons, on account of its poor ability) - KalloFox34
This thing is underrated actually - SaltyMcSalt
Regigigas is not overrated. He knows mega buster
He's no where near overrated
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.
How is he overrated. 90% of people get kirlia to evolve to Gardevoir cause it a waifu Pokemon
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
This list is getting stupid, Zekrom overshadows Reshiram, yet Reshiram is overrated? I would think so since gen 5 is the 2nd most hated gen (right after 4th) - USGC
Zekrom easily overshadows Reshiram. I don't know what you're saying FennikenFan9. Reshiram should receive more love.
Reshiram is overrated - mangamango
Reshiram is always overshadowing Zechrom, even though Zechrom is a really good Pokemon with awesome moves. Zechrom is underrated compared to Reshiram - FennikenFan9
Ah yes, Groudon. The one in the trio that gets the least recognition outside of battle. Just like Kyogre, it's known for being in the weather trio and being associated with Rayquaza. I'm going to be quick to the point, it should be lower on the list. Look, Rayquaza is basically the 3-5 most popular Pokemon in the who franchise, just about every Pokemon that isn't Arceus, Pikachu or Greninja is going to be significantly less praised than it. Groudon is kind of in the middle ground, it's known for being mostly used in ubers and VGC and I guess that mistaken it for being overrated.
To be honest, I kind of miss this thing for this season of VGC at the moment. Kyogre is literally everywhere and incredibly tough to combat due to how stupidly broken it is even with and without drizzle up. Primal Groudon is literally the key to keeping it in check, and I guess girlfriend knew this because if primal reversion never happened, everyone would probably be sick of seeing Kyogre's face for ...more
Wasn't there a recent Japanese poll that showed that Kyogre was more recognizable and popular than Groudon? It's almost twice as much lol. Not a fan of both, but this is so wrong.
God dang it, wish I wasn't adding on to the percentage, but how? I get it, he's the most used in ubers, but that's just about it. Other than that, it's in terms of likeness compared to Palkia vs Dialga, he's really not talked about that much outside of the competitive scene, unlike other legends. Also, how did Groudon surpass Kyogre, isn't Kyogre praised and liked more by the community? Groudon has reasons to be used, I'm not going to lie and say that it's not a little overused (just in smogon), but you hardly find people that overhype him. Plus, Kyogre kind of got the same (op) treatment back then for about a decade, Groudon only had this running championship for about 3 years.
Also, Groudon placed 6 spots behind Kyogre in an official Pokemon of Japan popularity poll.
See the kid above me? Groudon learns Solar Beam get your nostalgia up boy
