Most Underrated Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Raichu Raichu Raichu is an Electric type Pokémon, and the evolution of Pikachu. Raichu is number 26 in the Pokedex. It has an Alolan Form, which is an Electric/Psychic type.

Everyone likes Pikachu too much... Game Freak is giving too much stuff to Pikachu. Who get's the light ball? Pikachu. Who get's to change outfits for contests in ORAS? Pikachu. Which Pokemon gets to say their anime cry in XY? Pikachu. Which Pokemon can you find with a low level in the grass even though it has a pre evolution? Pikachu. Which Pokemon did Game Freak choose to almost KILL Giovanni in the anime with their electro ball? Pikachu. Game Freak should stop and think about Raichu. Did you know that Clefairy was originally going to be Ash's first Pokemon? If the mascot was Clefairy then would Clefairy get all of the praise? I bet it would. I know that people say 'If you hate Pikachu then you hate Pokemon! ' but you don't have to like a 10 year old's first Pokemon. Even though Pikachu may be the mascot, I will always love Raichu, no matter how stupid Game Freak will make him look. - anythingispossible

How many times have game freak given things to Raichu? Well, it got an Alolan form and a Z move, so that's 2 things. What about it pre-evolved form, Pikachu? It has multiple games staring it, the light ball which only works with Pikachu, 6 stupid clones of it, being the only Pokemon who can say it's own name, being able to wear different outfits, and it's own Z move... about 12 things. I understand he's the mascot, but most players, like me, don't give a damn about Pikachu and are sick of having the thing shoved in our face! I actually have a tradition whenever I start a new Pokemon game if I have a Pikachu I evolve it the second I get a thunder stone. Sweet relief.

This Pokemon is definitely one of the most underrated Pokemon. I never use it in Pokemon, but it's definitely much more underrated than Pikachu, like a 100%. Pikachu gets all the love because it's the anime mascot and for little kids, Raichu is not even known because they most likely didn't play the Pokemon games and try to catch em all. Pikachu is just too overrated and Raichu is too underrated. That's my opinion b-bye!

I love Raichu! - MichaelAftonUTTP

2 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Grass/Poison type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Everyone always chooses Charizard, but I pick Venusaur because I know it has a decent move pool, awesome special attack and special defense stats, and Mega Venusaur can really take a hit with thick fat.

Venusaur is awesome it is so underrated people like Charizard and Blastoise but Venusaur needs more love it is pretty good so yeah.

Lets all agree that grass Pokemon need more love

Venusaur sucks, BIG TIME! - MichaelAftonUTTP

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

Blastoise is overrated!

Charizard haters

4 Banette Banette

HOW DARE THEY HATE ON MARIAN! I love Banette and went out of my way to google up Cave of Emptiness and is going on Thursday to get it in Pokemon Village in Pokemon X.Its Mega is so haunting yet beautiful and its one I need to get.

This guy is a really underrated Pokemon even though it has a mega

Best pokemon. I'm tired so I'm not gonna explain why - Banette-marionette

I have a soft toy banette

5 Chesnaught Chesnaught

I love all grass types, but Chesnaught has to take the cake. I play a Pokemon imitation game, Pokemon Brick Bronze. My Chesnaught is a boss with spiky shield, seed bomb, rollout, and pin missile. Defeated a grass type gym!

This thing is a murderer. CHESNAUGHT FOREVER! As soon as I saw Chespin in January 2013, I knew I wanted him. - Goatworlds

Yeah, I only know about two other people that like Chesnaught. I mean, they're probably my least favourite starter from Pokemon X and Y, but I'm still happy to have them! - Shiverfeather

I had no regrets choosing chespin, I do admit his second evolution Quilladin was quite hideous to look at, but chesnaught is a beast! He smashed most of the gym leaders, the elite four and diantha's pokemon, it's very underrated and deserves so much more. It barely made an appearance in the anime

6 Luxray Luxray

How is it underrated... It is overrated. Somebody said it is the best electric Pokemon.. Why? I mean he said it has a limited movepool, which is true, but he still think it is the best for like no reasons. The only good thing about luxray is 120 attack, intimidate and hidden ability of guts, ok coverages and that's it. It has a terrible speed of 70 and 80/79/79 isn't too good. As a bulky Pokemon it also lacks a recovery move. Why do people think it is underrated

Luxray is one of the best electric times, even with a limited move pool. However, it's lack of promotion and under usage makes it under rated :(

Oh luxray, I love luxray and think it needs more appreciation. It's design is so cool! I understand that it has a bad move pool and stats but they can fix that with a needed mega evolution!

Luxray isn't overrated compared to Pikachu. Not only because of its badass look, I personally like it because it's only weak to ground like other electric types

7 Sharpedo Sharpedo

It's a shark with a mega need I say more

Love at first sight

8 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl

Because reasons. It got a mega evolution but it wasn't really all that good so...

9 Vanilluxe

People hate it because it's apparently "a sign that game freak is running out of ideas". And it's ICE CREAM, who doesn't love ice cream?

People say he's badly designed but he's AWESOME HE IS ICE CREAM FOR ARCEUS'S SAKE so underrated

If you're saying stat total of 535 is bad, I don't really understand what is going on in your head

This guy have a better stats and I take down all of drayden pokemon with him

10 Zoroark Zoroark

I don't think Zoroark is underrated. Many loves him and use him. I love his ability lol like he is gonna fool them all.

Since Black and white zoroark has been my favorite pokemon. His ability is amazing and with proper use he can can destroy teams. He's kind of a glass cannon, but if you smack specs on him. Destruction insues.

It's ability can allow for some good outplays

The Newcomers

? Glaceon Glaceon
? Accelgor

The Contenders

11 Gothitelle Gothitelle

People don't like her design, which I find very cool, she has great stats except in speed and attack (which she doesn't need 'cause is phychic type ) and can learn good moves too, definitely the best V generation Pokemon for me and one of my favorites

It is a great a Pokemon and should get more respect. It is a gardevoir with bulk

It has shadow tag, but people still don't like it.

It helped Se Jun Park win VGC 2014, along with Garchomp, Pachirisu, and Mega Gyarados, those were the highlights of his team. - noo7na7

12 Magmortar Magmortar

Raichu is underrated, but nobody cares about Magmortar except me and 1 friend of mine. I mean come on, this guy is so powerful, looks like he's from the Incredibles, and even though he is fire type (which I am not a big fan of), he is just underrated by all means.

Magmortar is awesome and due who said no one cares about magmortar except you and your friend I am with you but I still think Electivire is better

Actually one of the best fire type Pokemon out there.

My favorite pokemon use it in every game it is attainable with that magmarizer of course

13 Garbodor Garbodor

Garbodor is an awesome Pokemon with an awesome idea for a design. A Pokemon that eats up garbage to add to its body? Hell yes! In fact Muk/Grimer is very similar, and they're just piles of goop, but they don't get the hate that Garbodor does.

SHUT UP, GENWUNNERS. THIS IS A GOOD Pokemon. STORY OVER.

14 Serperior Serperior

I chose tepig as my starter, and I was happy when evolved into an funny (yet cute) looking Pignite, and then to a powerful Emboar. Serperior, though, has a really awesome design! It looks so fancy and slick. Like teach it Energy Ball, Dragon Pulse (if you have ORAS), Glare (through breeding), and Leech Seed! Or Leaf Blade, Coil, Aqua Tail (ORAS tutor), and Leech Seed! This pokemon is pretty underrated in my opinion

This is my favorite Pokemon for nostalgia reasons, but I don't think it's underrated. In fact, I've never met anyone who hates Serperior.

I love serperior but it's underrated and overhated

Reshiram and Serperior tend to be overshadowed. those pokemon I LOVE. to bad that they are uncommon...

15 Vileplume Vileplume

For some strange reason, Vileplume is forgotten as a Pokemon, but is my second favorite...

Come teeter dance poisoning I have a vileplume that can OHKO so many Pokemon or just use it to induce rage into my opponents

Everyone hates this guy but because of him erikas gym in the 1st gen was the only one I struggled with other than the recovering alakazam

With this Pokémons combination of statis effect moves plus it's OP physical attacks this Pokémon should be one of the best but it is so under rated and why don't they have any sun and moon Pokémon here like togedemaru the best Pokémon ever

16 Mawile Mawile

How is mawile underrated? Do you guys even see the praise it gets online? And for good reason, mega mawile has huge power which doubles it's attack. I literally beat the elite four in oras with only mega mawile

She deserves to be loved

Lol not anymore, especially since it's banned to Ubers - yungstirjoey666

Mega mawile > mega sableye

17 Drapion Drapion

I love Drapion, But I will admit, its not the best pokemon ever considering that it doesn't learn too many good moves. But it has a good model, decent stats, and its only weakness is ground. I think this pokemon needs a mega. - USGC

No one likes Drapion for some reason. I like him!

Awesome Pokemon.

18 Slaking Slaking

In double battles any slaking will rule the competition when teamed up with a pokemon who knows gastro acid. Slaking has been my companion in every game since diamond. Damage that makes gods look like ants. Lord knows that one shot potential is mad.

19 Walrein Walrein

Icy tank that 1hits any tough dragons, lots of health high special attack and defense stats what more could you want from a lovable bundle of flubba

Walrein served me well in 3d gen and I also had one in white 2 :) a wall with good moves plus cool design

It's the Walrus Copypasta! - TrueBlueHeroes

Love this pokémon, so much swag.
