Most Underrated Pokemon

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and ...read more.

How is this thing underrated? It and its evolution are very well-known and this thing is totally popular. Just because it's not in a certain tier and you absolutely love this thing does not make it underrated. In fact, this thing would be considered overrated. I also hate its typing for reasons that you should figure out pretty easily.

Everyone says that Magikarp is the worst and this Pokemon evolves from Magikarp. True but this Pokemon is awesome! Magikarp's base attack stat is 10, but when it evolves into Gyarados, it gains 115 base attack stat points! And don't forget Mega Evolution... 155 Base attack stat?! WHAT! Gyarados can learn Dragon Dance (Very good status move because it raises Attack and speed), Ice Fang (Salamence, Dragonite, Garchomp, Mega Sceptile etc. lose to this move, especially Dragonite with a Multiscale ability if Gyarados Mega Evolved) and speaking of Mega Evolution, its new ability is Mold Breaker which bypasses the opponent's abilities (Multiscale etc).

Gyarados is still on OU!? Wow, I get that it's powerful. But considering it a SWEEPER!? With only 81 speed, a sweeper? You need Dragon Dance support with it! Only more than 2 Dragon Dance uses or a Choice Scarf lets it sweep! And people all use Magikarp just as a joke, yet people still call it the worst Pokemon out there. No, you know who's the worst Pokemon out there? UNOWN!

Anyway, Gyarados is popular even with in game trainers. Blue uses it, Clair uses it, Lance uses it, so does Wallace, Cyrus, Crasher Wake and Lysandrae. I mean what the hell, why do so many Trainers use it? And that's only the boss trainers! You will find at least 100 that use it in the whole main series games!
And it barely learns any new moves leveling up! Only 11! Yeah, 11! Why such a random number? Besides, it's 4x weak to Electric! Good luck trying to use it in a Gyarados only run in any game with an Electric gym!
But, it's still great. It just gets too much attention.

My favorite Kanto pokemon

42 Muk Muk

While Muk might not be the prettiest Pokemon, he more than makes up for it in personality.

Mul is an absolute legend. The way he took out a bell sprout in the Indigo league will live long in the memory.

Whereecver I go I see I hate muk

People only hate it for its design and name. It actually has good stats and moves, and can be really useful in the sense of offense, with high attack. It also has great HP. - Goatworlds

43 Regigigas Regigigas

He needs a HA like iron fist

44 Spiritomb Spiritomb

Gen 6 gave this guy a weakness and sableye is much better, but I still like him.

It's awesome it has no weaknesses - Pikachulover1

45 Onix Onix
46 Pineco

Everyone always rages on how it's just a pine cone, but I think that's fine as long as it makes sense.

47 Torterra Torterra

Honestly, this thing is completely underrated compared to other starters. It deserves to be higher.

100? this should be in the top 10. Only my brother and I like this guy that I know of.

This thing is a power house

48 Bidoof Bidoof

I am not putting this as a joke he is NOT the worst Pokemon of all time why does everyone like shedinja then it has 1 heath it can use superpower and sweep whole teams with that move bidoof is the best out of all the gimmicky generic rodent Pokemon that you find early in the game - ikerevievs

Bidoof is a good Pokemon. he has Earthquake, thunderbolt and blizzard in his arsenal (move pool).

If I were in the Pokemon show I would have a bidoof as a partner named Joey

I'm gonna say this loud and clear.









Bidoof is better that Charizard or Pikachu.
Hate me all you want, your opinion is nothing to me.

49 Clefable Clefable

Very underrated, some people even say it is one of the worst fully evolved Pokemon, but it really isn't. It has a wonderful ability"magic guard", makes it only takes damage from damaging moves. Unaware is also a very useful ability it has. It also only have two weakness and an ok bulk of 95/73/95. Along with that, it gets calm mind+soft boiled combo, makes it hard to beat for times. It also gets cosmic power, which is great with soft-boiled. It also gets t-wave, wish, heal bell and stealth rock to support the team. It has some good coverages like fire blast, flamethrower, focus blast, ice beam and thunderbolt and yet some people think it sucks...

It's a fairy for crying out loud give this poor thing some respect it's immune to dragon and only weak to poison which it can learn psychic and its weak to steel but it can learn flame thrower! Plus stab moon blast and calm mind this is a tank with unaware too swords dance doesn't even boost a pokemon 's attack stat becuase of clefable!

Can someone add uxie

Clefable has two weaknesses poison and steel and there are no competitively viable poison types and the only steel type you'll ever see in the battle spot is mettagross and besides clefable can learn flame thrower now all it needs is a little boost to its speed and bam u got urself a tank

50 Dunsparce

It has a good movepool, and someone won a tournament in 2005 with the help of Dunsparce. - GREATEST

Look, I know it has an awful design, but it's move learnset is just incredible! I have used this fellow before in various playthroughs, and every time it pulled through.

51 Lickitung Lickitung

I never see Lickitung on anyone's 'favorite pokemon' or 'cutest pokemon' etc lists! Everyone seems to forget about this guy. The design is cute and charming, and even if it's not the most useful pokemon, it should still be appreciated for how adorable it is.

Lickitung and Diglett are underrated

52 Whimsicott

Can make a really good Prankster, surprised people don't use it more.

It's epic in battle, trust me

One of the fastest Pokemon. - Goatworlds

Underrated, and given a bad reputation for being fairy type. Take this to s dragon any day and watch it flail in misery! Charizard has just about the same amount of hp as this bad boy.

It play smarter not harder!

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

Everyone at my school sees it as useless crap... It's really the best starter ever and it tears through everything when its evolved. - Goatworlds

This is an amazing water starter that, unfortunately, very few people picked.

My favorite starter that many people

54 Swampert Swampert

All people talk about these days are Blaziken or Sceptile. Nobody bats an eye on Swampert.

Swamp wet is one of the few water type Pokemon who are immune to electricity including Whiscash and Stunfisk

I have to vote swampert.Highest base stat immune to electric types, only weakness grass type simple teach it an ice move and done.No Mr chicken blaziken or sceptile aren't better.Vote for Swampert at least in the top 10 not 56.

I'm not kidding. Best starter Pokemon. however, everyobody always says "Sceptiles faster" or "Blazikens better" or "Charizards better" Only the first one is true, but swampert is still better than sceptile, and is really underrated

55 Buizel Buizel

Buizel is awesome. And WAY better than Pikachu. Why?

Better stats even though Buizel is a basic

Super fast

Wide move pull, including poison type, ground type, and even fighting and ice type moves.

Awesome design

Breaks stereotype of Water Type Pokemon being blue

And looks MILES better in sunglasses. Need I carry on? Don't waste your vote, vote for this super awesome Pokemon!

Now seriously. I have to add Buizel on this list because no one else will! It's crazy! Buizel is my favorite Pokemon ever! And Dawn used to have it, but the dumb idiot traded it to Ash! Come on Dawn! You were the perfect team with Buizel.. Well I think Buizel is awesome and everyone should like him.. Vote for Buizel!

Buizel is simply the definition of an awesome Pokemon. It looks cool, it's super fast, has nice abilities, and has a wide move pool. HELL, I 1 hit KO'd a Staraptor with a Buizel! This thing it underrated as hell, since it can do so many awesome things!

I's a great Pokemon, it's just has bad defense stats

56 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Charizard (kind of) gets a lot of love. Definitely more than Charmander. - thelegendaries101

Charmander isn't overrated. But Charizard is.

Poor charmander

agreed

58 Infernape Infernape

All people talk about in the anime is either Ash's Charizard of Greninja. What about Infernape? It's a beast in Blaze mode. - yungstirjoey666

It has a feat, and that's knocking out a Metagross as a Chimchar, but it did lose to Flint's Infernape, and Ash didn't use it against Tobias, so maybe Infernape still wasn't strong enough for Darkrai. - noo7na7

60 Scyther Scyther
