Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Onix Onix

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

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

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

Onix is decent, and no one ever, EVER talks about him. - SirBizmo

22 Oshawott Oshawott Oshawott, Dewott, and Samurott, are three Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise that are linked through evolution.

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

No. - SirBizmo

23 Eeveelutions

Caution: 7-year-olds will scream at you if you say to them "I personally don't like the Eeveelutions"

Why is this at 23? The eeveelutions are very popular. They're popular because they have many adorable evolutions.

They r overrated!

So many people like the eeveelutions, they even have their own episode in the anime! Umbreon and Sylveon are also super overrated.

24 Umbreon Umbreon

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

This thing ruined my battle. I hate it with a burning fury.

25 Meowth Meowth Meowth is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. 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 ...read 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!

26 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

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

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

27 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.

Nah. - SirBizmo

28 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.

When we first heard of Froakie, like Popplio and Oshawott, everyone hated it. I was the only person out of all my friends and people I knew who were getting XY who wanted to pick Froakie. People told me off for not wanting Fennekin. And then after we learned about Greninja, THAT'S WHEN everyone started to pick Froakie. - Rue

29 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

30 Lopunny Lopunny

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

I have a Lopunny. He's actually pretty good.
It's just the annoying fans... ugh they suck

31 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.

So overrated. The 3rd most overrated max evolution starter.

32 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

33 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 ...read 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.

34 Mega Charizard Y

This one isn't as cool as X - Goatworlds

Nothing more than an overrated pokemons mega evoltution

Really? If anything, Mega Charizard Y is highly highly overshadowed by Mega Charizard X. And I know it's a Charizard so don't get me wrong, Charizard is overrated. But does Charizard overshadow HIMSELF more than any other Pokemon? Let's see... Mega Charizard X got a Pokken appearance as Charizard's Resonance Burst mode, an SSB4 appearance as Charizard's Final Smash, a Pokemon Origins appearance, Mega Evolution Special appearance, cameo in the opening of Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, and he will have an appearance in the XY and Z anime arc. Before you splat Mega Charizard Y on this list, think twice about the challenger Mega that overthrew the original...

36 Arcanine Arcanine

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!

I like but I don't go around making a big deal about it. - Enderninja327

I don't think he's overrated. He was planned to be a legendary and is way better than Charizard. He was pretty good when I used one in Sun and Moon. He's got a good moveset. He's got above-average stats. - SirBizmo

Actually, Lapras is pretty underrated

I wish I could add one to my team someday

I agree

38 Treecko Treecko

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

40 Ditto Ditto

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.
