Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Zekrom Zekrom

Sure, he may be very cool. But he has too many fan boys. Why don't you people like Reshiram?

I've seen way too many people choosing him over reshiram simply because of his physical attack being better, and a few even saying that Reshiram can't measure up to him for having lower physical attack. Reshiram's special attack is just as high, and it can utilize it just as well...

If anything, I find Reshiram much more overrated. Zekrom's popularity can mostly be traced back to a lot of the younger pokefans. Zekrom is really good and so is Reshiram. In a proper fanbase, Zekrom is underrated. Point blank. - FennikenFan9

They are both good, and neither are overrated, but Zekrom gets more praise, so how is resheraim more overrate. It seems like people don't even know what overrated means. - USGC

84 Glacieron

Um, don't you mean "Glaceon" not "Glacieron"? :/

Glacieron is the worst mon ever! Glaceon is good though.

Gosh Umbreon x Glaceon, please get rid of it.

I agree! Glacieron is sooo overrated! Man, I hate Glacieron!
Glaceon is awesome, though.

86 Mightyena Mightyena

What? Why is Mightyena even on this list? It goes forgotten by both the players themselves AND Game Freak. The fact that similar dark-types (E.G. Absol and Houndoom) got megas whilst already being stronger just highlights how nobody cares about Mightyena. If anything it's an underrated Pokemon.

Mightyena, in game, is extremely underrated. But fan base wise, it's overly popular. I should know, being this is the only Pokémon I specialize in.

This is my absolute favorite Pokémon, and has been for years, ever since it was first released. If anything, Mightyena is extremely underrated. It is far from being overrated. The little love it does get is immensely well deserved. It’s a beautiful Pokémon, and it deserves so much more.

87 Kingdra Kingdra
88 Weavile Weavile

People can't shut up about him. They keep saying "He has high attack and speed! ", just use about any type aside from Dragon, and you can kick his butt because of its POOR defense stat. Just use a Zoroark if you want a Dark type Pokemon.

89 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Seriously?!? 82?!?! He should be around 15.

Do I like him? Yes, but he is my least favorite of the Gen 1 ghosts with Haunter being my favorite. I mean, people may fanboy about Charizard and Umbreon, but at least they have some haters. Gengar? NO! I haven't seen a single person mention "Gengar is even more overrated than Charzizard," in my life! I mean Gengar is half POISON type which is weak to psychic. The type he is SUPPOSED to counter. If you want a good ghost Pokemon on you're team, use Chandelure! He has a better special attack stat and a better design.

Gengar is not overrated! Think of all his weaknesses. Psychic, Ghost, Dark and more. Look at this twice!

I don't understand why Gengar is considered so cool. So what if it is strong? Mewtwo has a better design then Gengar and that is saying something.

Let me tell you something: Mismagius may be Gengar's shadow (almost the same stats, both have levitate (Gengar used to have it, at least), same design color, etc.) but it can still surpass if trained properly. Don't teach it physical attacks, since your Mismagius will suck (It has lower attack than sp. attack) teach it sp. attacks instead. EV train its stats except for attack since it isn't necessary, and I recommend you to make them all balance together if possible. Mismagius can also surpass Gengar because it's a pure ghost type, so it has only 2 weaknesses. Gengar, however, is weak to 4 types, that being Psychic, Ground (it lost levitate in gen 7), Ghost, and Dark. Chandelure is also better, it may have more weaknesses, but you can make it a better tank than Gengar. Mismagius, Chandelure, Banette, Aegislash, and Dusknoir are better now.
But that's just my silly opinion. If you love Gengar, I highly respect that. - Ohno

90 Cyndaquil Cyndaquil Cyndaquil is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. more.

Chikorita is not weak (it is just underrated). I like Cyndaquil but people say that Typhlosion is better than Charizard but some people say that Charizard is more better than Typhlosion.

Am I the only one who doesn't think Cyndaquil is cute? I picked Chikorita, and I got all 16 badges just fine...

He looked very cute.

Just a stupid looking mole rat thing who people think is cute when chikorita is actually cute(don't understand why people hate her).

92 Ninetales Ninetales

That's not nice! Ninetails is the best pokemon ever! Ninetales looks so majestic and has nine beautiful tails. - lovefrombadlands

Ninetales has a lot of fans

Ninetales doesn't get enough credit with mega Charizard Y being

Whoever put ninetales here, looked at alolan ninetales and think again m8

93 Sceptile Sceptile

Hey, it's a grass dragon, and I chose a Treecko in Emerald so stop because you don't know what you are talking about.

Sceptile's pretty much the green Charizard of the third generation.

He is kind of overrated but I still like him

He sucks in the games.

95 Chesnaught Chesnaught

Wrong! Chesnaught has awesome defense mine took three psychics and was still standing.

Chesnaught isn't overrated. It's far from that. It deserves so much more attention - Ohno

Its basically a green hedgehog with a shell

Yet chesnaught is 999999900000 less popular than delphox.

96 Mega Absol Mega Absol
97 Zoroark Zoroark

Why do people love this so much? Yes, it has a unique ability and I love foxes(Ninetales and delphox are awesome fox pokemon), but it's very fragile and why is it's tail on it's head? That is just weird. I honestly think krookodile is a way better dark type than zoroark

98 Incineroar Incineroar

Oh my fridge ing god incineroar is so weak and so UGLY! In fact I hate cats! the only cats I like are meowth, glameow and delcatty. EVERYONE IN MY SCHOOL LOVES HIM! EVEN MY CRUSH! - Piplup

See comment down below to prove he isn't overrated. LITTEN may be liked, but loads of people DESPISE incinoroar for the reasons listed below (which is total bs he isn’t ugly at all... don’t know where people get that) or for some bullreason like ‘he isn’t fire/fighting wah! ’ WHY DO people WANT ANOTHER FIRE/FIGHTING STARTER? No, I’ll be pleased if they NEVER make another fire/fighting starter again. If you need another fire/fighting starter, there’s THREE to choose from: blazikin, infernape, & that pig thing. No need for another. He’s supposed to b fire/dark because he’s based off a wrestler who likes to be cheep aka dark types.

99 Azelf Azelf

Well I don't like Azelf because of Ash, I just like Azelf

I have no idea of this Azelf with Ash thingy, but I like Azelf for some unknown reason.

If you ask a Pokemon fan, "Who do you like the most, Mespirit, Uxie or Azelf? " in my nabourhood, the fan'll wave Mespirit and Uxie away to gasp, "Azelf! " because of Ash.

100 Wobbuffet Wobbuffet

Wobbuffet might only know one attack at least in the anime I know so far (counter) but this blue blob is so funny and I love his WOBBUFFET SALUTE
so funny so amazing
all his episodes are great (with some exceptions) the only problem I have with him is that he made lickitung get kicked out the show (at least for jessie) but other than that he is a pride to the franchise
