Most Underrated Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Raichu Raichu

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!

Girlfriend hates this cute pokemon too much, pikachu was good but he's slowly becoming repetitive and dull, Ash should just evolve his pikachu into a raichu and wreck every single region!

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

Never picked and is my favorite pokemon. can take charizard or blastoise down in one hit with the right move.

3 Banette Banette

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

Cool and creepy

At least Banette is loved by competitive Smogon and VGC players.

4 Kabutops Kabutops

B'because he is old.
But I have a idea he should have more evolutions like mega evolution
and his weapons are cool like scyther

5 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!

6 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 .

I don't know about if it's really underrated but in most of my Pokemon runs I use him.

Overshadowed by pikachu, emolga, etc.

Good electric type, why isn't Jolteon on the list?

It's pretty good and it's so cute! :3

7 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 don't understand why Chesnaught doesn't get a lot of attention. Lets ignore the fact that I find that chesnaught looks very, that he's good in battle or that fighting is like the best type ever and instead tell why people dislike this pokemon: It doesn't look like his preevolves forms. Firstly, why is this important? Second, if its important, why does Dragonite, that ugly dragon, is popular, knowing that his preevolution is a water snake. There's other popular pokemon like that but I think Dragonite is an enough good example.
It's unfair that we don't see a lot of him in the anime.

8 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!

What?! Luxray is overrated. Like seriously it overshadows other cat pokemon like pyroar

9 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!

10 Conkeldurr Conkeldurr

This is my boy Conk. And I have to admitt, he's pretty ugly. But ugly doesn't mean cool. (*Cough* scarfty *Cough* Crawdaunt *cough* etc). And in battle, he have access to poison jab, ice punch and knock off for type coverage, a STAB mach punch, great defensive stats (except for special defense), skyrock physical attack and it's the best user of the assault vest thanks to drain punch (and thanks to this item conk's problem with special defense is gone). For me this is Machamp 2.0 and the second best fighting type (if we don't count the one that haves fighting as a secondary types like Chesnaught or Infernape0.

The Contenders

11 Deoxys Deoxys

It came from outer space, people! It changes forms to make certain stats stronger than others! When I got it in-game, I used it all the time. It became my best Pokemon, the first one I got to level 100, and helped me knock out any Pokemon in battle. Not to mention that its design is really nice and smooth. Its colors mix very well, and its shiny looks glorious! come on guys, give Deoxys some love!

No one cares about this Pokémon even though it can change forms! I love this pokemon! it came from a meteor! Yet it is still underrated.

12 Sharpedo Sharpedo
13 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

14 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

15 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl
16 Eelektross Eelektross

Like the only Pokemon with zero weaknesses in gen 6!

This is my favorite Pokémon, I managed to beat a lot of people in sun and moon with it, that was because of pokebank

17 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

18 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

19 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

20 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...
