Top 10 Most Useless Pokémon

The Top Ten
Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

With only the usage of 3 moves--Splash Tackle and Flail whilst learning Flail at level 30, Magikarp is a very weak Pokémon until it evolves into the Atrocious Pokémon. But, our favorite fish does have it's own spin off mobile game called Magikarp Jump where you can train your Magikarp to it's highest and gain JP (Jump Power) to jump higher than all the other Magikarp and win leagues.

I think Magikarp is the worst Pokemon in the game. It only has one move and takes forever to evolve. Some people say its only good because of its evolution.

He can't beating giratina with splash, but her's awesome strong 40 move is then quick attack, remember: flail is strong if only pokemon was started with G.

How can someone have a party of 6 Magikarp? I was battling a fisherman with 6 Magikarp in Pokémon Diamond and it was really boring... Just try to splash all the way to level 20.

Unown Unown is a Psychic type Pokémon from the Johto region, taking on the form of letters and punctuation. It is often considered the weakest Pokémon, with low stats and access to only one move, Hidden Power (which can be learnt by nearly every Pokémon anyway)

Not only can this thing not evolve. Not only does this thing have one of the lowest base stat totals of any fully evolved Pokémon. Not only is it gimmicky and dumb, but it can only know one move. Hidden power, a move every Pokemon that can learn TM's can learn. At least Magikarp can learn 4 moves: splash (useless), tackle, flail and bounce. Magikarp also evolves into Gyarados, which is a beast. Unown is terrible. DON'T EVEN BOTHER!

I catch one of these jerks, at first I was like, "*gasps* An Unown, this is awesome, I remember in the movie they are so powerful in the movie, they could turn th wishes os a Little girl true! X3" I was really excited until...some time latter, "ARG! Why the only thing you can do is Hidden Power?! This is the last time I pay so attention to one of the pokemon movies! "

I can't use that guy to fight at all, he is slow, he only do one attack and it not exactly powerful, seriously sometimes I regret the day I catch it...-_-

Assuming Hidden Power is a Normal type attack, Unown has crappy stats and only one move that doesn't get STAB if once again, Hidden Power is assumed to be Normal type. Also note that his Hidden Power lowers his IVs, and it only gets a maximum power of 70. Compare that to stuff like Psystrike coming of 154 Special Attack and STAB. This guy is of no help without Baton Pass.

Unlike magikarp, metapod, weedle, etc, it can't evolve. It is almost as terrible as them but they can evolve to a Pokemon better than this Pokemon. Only hidden power, u mad?

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

Yeah okay, Metapod is pretty useless in a battle. But it does get some credit for being based on an animal that ACTUALLY has life stages in which it changes form.

Hey, at least if you level up this Pokemon till lv 100 without evolve it, it can used for teasing people at battle! Just harden it continuesly and when it hp come to 1, use max potion! Roll on floor laugh

When I put it in the daycare it got to like level 100 and it didn't evolve. I wanted to kill myself until I figured out they couldn't evolve there...

Don't catch a wild Metapod. All it does is only to harden over and over.

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

Its an heart fish! It's only good for literally an item!

(Like the shiny though)

It's useless now but it used to be the only way to obtain heart scales.

Why isn't this number one?

Money making pokemon

Miltank Miltank, known in Japan as ミルタンク, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was introduced in Generation II of the series and is a female only species categorized as the Milk Cow Pokémon. It is a Normal type Pokémon. more.

How is Miltank useless? It can learn Milk Drink, a move that can be used to restore HP to other Pokémon outside of battle in Generation VI and earlier, and in battle to restore its own HP by half, allowing it to be used as an HP distributor in the overworld, so you don't have to go into Pokémon Centers as much.

It also can learn Defense Curl, a move that doubles Rollout's power the first time it is used, and Rollout, while it is a move that locks Miltank into using it for five turns or until it misses, Rollout increases in power the more turns it hits without missing. It also doesn't use additional PP for each turn it is locked into allowing you to take out multiple Pokémon with only one PP.

Hey! If you know to use it can be useful. Just cause your team got wrecked by Whitney's one doesn't mean it is useless.

Does some people even know what term "useless" means?

I have this on my pokemon go team it destoryed team rocket

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

Um let's see here. It can breed with any Pokemon that can breed besides itself. It's one of the most useful one if you ask me

Ditto is kinda like new u know! They are both pink! Aaand they both know every possible move...or they don't?

If we were to talk about the slime ditto thing ya it's the weakest

Should not be on this list, very useful for breeding


He is useless on your side, but if the enemy has him, chances are some HP is coming your way... And that is why I battle him in SoulSilver.

He has an attack that has 1 over 10 chances of HEALING the enemy. That's bad.

He's got a 20% chance of healing the opponent

Ice shard, hustle is power


Its only real use is to set up hazards and to use spore, which doesn't even work on Grass-types.

HOWEVER! There is a set I use in Ubers where I spore the opponent, use Substitute, then Belly Drum, then Baton Pass to a physical sweeper.

Like come on! Do you really want a Pokèmon that just draws the opponent? No. And it's even worse than a Magikarp since it can't evolve into anything. Worst Pokemon out there.

Sketch is powerful; it copies the last attack your opponent did

Smeargle is actually very usefull one it has an awesome movepool which makes it unpredictable in battle.

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

Does no damage... Literally everywhere. Horrible evolutions. Piece of crap.

Awesome spike guy that evolves into beedrill! He should be number 700

Weed-el. The Weed. Yeah. It should replace oddish on the weed pokemon!

Weedle! Stop taking weed your nose is getting red!


Far from it, Dunsparce learns many utility moves such as stealth rock and glare to annoy opponents. In 4th gen it gained roost as a recovery option, which compliments its base 100 hp quite nicely. Serene grace increases the chance of additional effects of moves occurring, and Dunsparce is a good Pokemon to start the battle with.
Many Pokemon are superior to it such as Clefable, although most Pokemon are outclassed by at least one other option. This is why smogon's tiers exist, to allow all Pokemon to succeed in battle, and this Pokemon is actually decent in the lowest tier.

10 years searching for a deformed Pokemon that should have an awesome evolved form like Magikarp and I get this what a shame.

Dunsparce is one of the worst Pokemon in the game. Maybe if it got a mega evolution, or even an evolution, it would be decent.

And to think this was a rare pokemon that was somewhat hard to catch.

The Contenders
Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is slow, puny, and fragile in little cup. If its defense is not high enough, Guts Rattata can Toxic Orb Facade this plump mouse with little effort. It has Stealth Rock, a huge plus for him, but with Moody banned in Little Cup and its frailty, none of its allowed abilities can be used effectively. This is what we call a Gimmickmon.

The only reason this Pokemon was made it's to make him learn HM to pass the game.

He is a god! He is magikarp's son. Plus, when he evolves he can rollout all the way!

Its evolution, Bibarrel, can be used as an "HM slave" for traversing the overworld.

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

Rattata has high speed, but the rest of its stats is very bad. All it does is only to tail whip.

FEAR is useful but ghost types melt it.

He's ok but kinda week he does look kinda cool though I guese

Super fang at 100% = oppenent = 50% hp left


Mega anyone? Seriously the person who made this list doesn't know anything about Pokemon.

Starmie is in the OU teir. So it has a lot of use when it evolves


Metapod is magikarp's wife together they're domination. Kakuna on the other hand is useless until he turns into beedrill

He's just like metapod should be tied with him
But I guess he evolves into bee drill early

Caught one in the wild all it can do is harden

All she/he does is harden its shell in a duel


This thing makes me sick just looking at it

He's alright until you use him

What even is this "thing"

On its Pokémon card the only thing it knows is hang down

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

If you catch a low level one, it only knows an attack that doesn't do damage. Other than that, Jigglypuff isn't that useless.

I kick ass with jigglypuff I taught it stronger moves and it's my favourite Pokemon

Worst pokemon ever just sings you to sleep this should be in the number 1 spot

I don't think jigglypuff is that bad just the fact low speed


"Good luck shiny hunting that thing! " is what I was told when I said that I was going to shiny hunt vespiquin. I didn't think it would be that bad as I had shiny hunted for a male ralts and a female snorunt before (and that was HELL as they basically have double the odds of any other shiny pokèmon) let me just say this to any shiny hunters who want to get a shiny vespiquin: don't. Just don't. You are more likely to get a male combee than a female one,and the males don't have an evolution,so male shiny combees are about as useful as a magicarp with an everstone in its brain. And let me remind you that you have to wait 6 HOURS to even have a chance of getting this pokèmon, as well as the fact it has a 20% encounter rate after those six hours. PLUS the almost 90% chance of it being male. So what I'm trying to say is: male combees are useless, and don't be a shiny hunter

Why? Because it's utterly useless in every way shape or form.

Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

Magikarp is more useful than this Pokemon since magikarp can evolve to a good Pokemon while charizard? U trained your charmander so long and finally got charizard but it still sucks at battling... Best stat is just 109, paper defense of 78/78/84, four times weakness to SR, shallow special move pool, if u run physical u have to use 84 attack, if u have solar power and sun is up, u die soon(especially after SR). While gyrados, best stat is 540, nice bulk, has intimidate or hidden ability moxie, has dd (makes way better use of it than charizard), and has one less weakness and not as crippled by sr

Magikarp is way more useful than this Pokemon. Magikarp evolves into a powerful Pokemon while charizard is fully evolved.

OK just because people are being little crybabies, because he's "overrated" doesn't mean he's useless, are you kidding me?

Whoever put Charizard on here is a noob. I don't really like Charizard, but really?


I had a level 42 Farfetch'd that basically helped me beat the whole game. Isn't useless. He bailed me out so many times...

I love this Pokemon the move set is really useful to catching Pokemon. why exactly is this Pokemon on this list?

This Pokemon is one of the most irrelevant Pokemon of all time.

This is a little far-fetched...

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

It can use heat wave and hurricane and also with no guard

Pidgeot is really good. Get your facts right

Easily the worst bird Pokemon out there

I get so many pidgeys I don't know what to do!


On Ruby I Token down 4 gyms with this!

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

Audino is NOT useless, if you grind on audino's like me, how are they usless?
I mean come on who doesn't like to see an audino in the wild, you can maybe level up and I don't know about you guys but I like leveling up

I use an Audino in my team and boy does it destroy people! Totally not useless, awesome healer.

The only use Audino has is it being a total XP bomb
And It'll keep your partner alive during the Subway Battles

Aaand that's it! It main purpose is to be annoying.

Why is this even on this list to begin with?

Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Absolutely sucks. this ovverated piece of trash keeps in the spotlight, while pokemon like magmortar, electrode, sawk, victreebel, porygon2/Z, and mamoswine never get any spotlight.

Like Lucario, it has great stats, but with a twist: Its defense sucks.

Right now u are saying that ash Ketchum and his pikachu sucks

35/40/50 defense,... Also only 90 speed... Enough said


But his mega's good...
