Most Underrated Pokemon

41 Manectric Manectric

One of the best pokemon - legendary

42 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 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

43 Regice Regice Regice is a legendary Pokemon and part of the Regi trio. According to scientific research its body is made entirely of Antarctic ice during an ice age. It is said to always control frigid air of minus 328 degrees F. more.
44 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

45 Shuckle Shuckle

Shuckle is so cool, it has some good defensive stats and a suitable movepool and it's kinda cute

46 Mime Jr. Mime Jr.

He is actually decent using mimic which is pretty strong, he is better when he was a good trainer, unlike James from the anime

47 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

48 Buizel Buizel

This pokemon is overpowered onetime I was fighting level 62 zekrom with level 55 buizel all my other pokemon fainted for a moment I was like well screw this back tog riding and buizel KILLED IT that's right it defeated zekrom with aqua jet at that moment I was so glad that I chose him but zekrom had one hp left used an Electric move and I said to myself back to girding for sure but buizel toughed it out so you wouldn't feel sad and it defeated zekrom at that point I was jumping all over my house with joy and when it evolves it overpower plus it noes ice fang to use against grass type so you just got to worry obout electric types get this pokemon is way to underrated also how is raichu underrated it gets it's a a loan form and a move they should make mega floatzel

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!

Favourite Pokemon by far it's cute fast strong and just overall awesome

49 Torterra Torterra

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

This is a godly design, imagine riding this thing? This is one of my top 10 favorites easily

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

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 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

52 Silvally Silvally

The most underrated Pokemon of Gen VII in my opinion - PerfectImpulseX

53 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

54 Eelektross Eelektross

If someone say "Levitating + Electric type", many think only Rotom. This needs more attention. Even it's slow, it has no weakness without Mold Breaker.

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

Easly my favorite Pokemon, but it gets 0 love. I have no idea why. It has a cool design, a levitating lamprey-electric eel combined with a wire is much more original then just a lizard with wings. An electric type+levitate=no weakness. Good offense and defense, eh, bad speed, LARGE movepool, good troll for earthquake users. What else you want?

55 Lickitung Lickitung Lickitung is a normal type Pokemon from the Kanto region. It is based off of a lizard. It can evolve knowing rollout.

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

56 Mamoswine Mamoswine
57 Onix Onix
58 Pineco

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

59 Maractus Maractus

I don't get it I normally whoop peoples ass with this thing. - taytayxtaytay

He will take over the world some day - YourKingMaractus

FEAR MARACTUS WITH SOOO MUCH SPIKY SHIELD! Seriously, endeavor with sucker punch and spiky shield with back-up knock off/toxic can take out Talonflame, Mega Rayquaza, and many others. Spiky shield takes care of most priority so you can use fear on many pokemon. Also, Maractus is my favorite pokemon.

I didn't know this Pokémon even EXISTED until about a week ago - Crabmccrab

60 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.
