Top 10 Most Useless Pokémon

The Top Ten

1 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.

Magikarp is powerful. It took out several legendary Pokemon with flail.

My friend has a party in his game of JUST level 100 Magikarp... And he beat the Elite 4 with them. Laugh out loud

Looks like he was made by Trump grinding him than stuffing it with bones and ends it with painting it. But when it evolves it was made by Arceus.

Flail and Tackle are powerful but it does not do much damage when it comes to magikarp.

2 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)

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.

When I was small and I heard someone say "there is an unown Pokemon" and I thought it was unknown but when I checked the spelling and I lost my mind and yeah this is the most useless Pokemon ever

When I first saw unown, I thought this guy was a legendary. So I decide to catch every unown! That was my stupidest decision of all time

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

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. - latios632

Only thing a wild metapod do is harden, if you want a Metapod evolve it from a caterpie at less it get a attack ability, wild metapod does not... -_-

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.

4 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.

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. - MrQuaz680

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

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

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. - Tag365

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

It's useless now but it used to be the only way to obtain heart scales. - MrQuaz680

Just useless...

Why isn't this number one? - Goatworlds

Love this - Jocelyndapineapple

6 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 - MrQuaz680

Should not be on this list, very useful for breeding - RevolverOcelot

You can use it to breed anything! Why is it on here!

Great for competive breeding + has imposter - Brachiozaur

7 Delibird

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

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

Ice shard, hustle is power

I Heart Delibird

8 Smeargle

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. - KalloFox34

Rubbish character. Takes up space.

Without it's trusty spore, it's weak

Smeargle is actually very usefull one it has an awesome movepool which makes it unpredictable in battle. - MrQuaz680

9 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.

Pokemon pun:don't smoke weedle make you stupid

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

Weedle! Stop taking weed your nose is getting red!

10 Kakuna

Attacks- Harden. Yup, just Harden. - jimmy12lee

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

Caught one in the wild all it can do is harden

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

The Newcomers

? Hatterene
? Purugly

The worst Pokémon because creaters turned the most feisty and cute Pokémon (glameow) into a fat ugly beast that has no potential or purpose at all.

The Contenders

11 Staryu

Mega anyone? Seriously the person who made this list doesn't know anything about Pokemon. - MrQuaz680

Starmie is in the OU teir. So it has a lot of use when it evolves - MrQuaz680

12 Burmy

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 - 1507563

13 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. - FernandoLemon

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

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

Jigglypuff is not that bad actually

14 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.

I once set my Charizard down on some rocks. It couldn't get back up.

Charizard is by far the worst grass starter, it only learns splash.

In Pokemon there is Pokemon that look dumb that are good and Pokemon that look good and can't fight, he's neither, he's a nostalgic Pokemon were they can fall on pebbles and die, weak if you ask me

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

15 Feebas Feebas, known in Japan as Hinbass, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Milotic is epic. Bye.

It's evolution is worst Than gyarados, gyarados can mega.

I have 7 feebas in tcg helped me lose

what - Jocelyndapineapple

16 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. - latios632

I have A level 1 ONE THAT CAN KICK ANY IF YOUR Pokemon


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

17 Dunsparce

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.

Clearly you don't understand what serene grace is. - brichards719

18 Farfetch'd

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

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...

This is a little far-fetched...

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

19 Beautifly

On Ruby I Token down 4 gyms with this! - Rainbowkid38

20 Misdreavus
21 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.

Why is this even on this list to begin with?

Thanks for your EXP Audino! Aaand that's all.

22 Beedrill

But his mega's good... - Brachiozaur

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

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! - Goatworlds

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.

Its evolution, Bibarrel, can be used as an "HM slave" for traversing the overworld. - Tag365

24 Tynamo

Can only learn 5 useless moves total

It at least turns into a good poemon

It is so funny. why is even electric type

What - Jocelyndapineapple

25 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.

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

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

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

Pikachu: TRASH! Clefairy: SO MUCH BETTER!

26 Cleffa

Kill it

Cleffa is not useles
It's so damn cute and I can just stare at it for hours
... It's not useless okay D:

Oh! A wild Carvahana appeard go cleffa carvahana used bite cleffa fainted. that's how bad Cleffa is!

Cutee it’s adorable - Jocelyndapineapple

27 Silcoon

This Pokemon should be up the list near metapod and kakuna for the same reason as a cocoon.

It's so forgetful that they forgot to put it by the family of uselessness

Nice - Jocelyndapineapple

28 Sunkern

With the lowest base stats of all Pokemon, it is utterly useless. It learns a wealth of great moves, though it cannot use any of them, and its evolution isn't much of a step up. At least Magikarp and Metapod have useable evolutions. - ryanbuchanan

Htf is this thing useful

Suck it blue

It’s cool I guess - Jocelyndapineapple

29 Cascoon


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

Pidgeot is really good. Get your facts right

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

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

Yup - Jocelyndapineapple

31 Cubone Cubone, known in Japan as Karakara, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
32 Phione Phione, known in Japan as Phione, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Legendary baby! Why isn't that cute! plus mine is pretty strong.

"It is a mythical pokemon! Isn't that good enough for you? "

I keep forgetting that this pokemon exists.

It's a stupid water baby that is weak.

33 Wynaut
34 Abra Abra is a character from Pokemon. It started out in Pokemon Red & Green (Blue version for outside Japan) version, and was one of the first psychic type Pokemon you could run into. It sleeps for 18 hours a day and teleports if it senses danger. Its only move it can learn by level up is teleport (which more.

Its good when it evolves but when its just an abra, it really doesn't do anything

This Pokemon is extremely hard to evolve since it only learns teleport. Every time you use it, you don't get any experience. It's like running away from a battle

True it is hard to evolve at first but once you get it to its final form alakazam you wish you hanged on to that - Red26473

Sure abra is hard to use but evolve it and then is will be useful

Just be patent and use a great ball

35 Castform

Yeah what the crap is castform

Actually castform if used intelligently it's bada**

It’s cool - Jocelyndapineapple

36 Chikorita Chikorita, known in Japan as Chicorita, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Get Chikorita off the list now!

Get her off - RobloxBFDIPoke223


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

Yes, Zubat has a very good evolution, being crobat, but they do nothing for you until they are golbat - NobodyFamous

One step = thousand zubat. It will take you a year or more to walk out of a cave without a bunch of repel.Horde of zubat.

Looks like I have to transfer all my zubats to professor willow in Pokemon go and get a global instead or something

I looove crobat

38 Togepi Togepi, known in Japan as Togepy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why the f### did they make it. I mean look at it, it is a mofo.

WHAT!? It’s not that weak - Jocelyndapineapple

39 Jynx Jynx is created game freak & Nintendo. It was first introduced in Pokemon red, green (blue outside Japan), and yellow version. It could be based on a lot of different things (not Nikki as she was not popular when Pokemon started)... for example ganguro, a trend for woman in Japan in the 1990’s (hence more.

Jynx is awesome why is he here

Ugly why is SHE Here - 1507563

A wild Nikki manaj has appeared - Jocelyndapineapple


40 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Damn atheists. - DensestPotato

How can it be useless?

Oh, dear God, this thing...

Arceus is a joke.

41 Inkay


Yasss my all time fave - Jocelyndapineapple

42 Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

It's said to be kinda like ditto it knows every possible move and it can transform. I know! I might be wrong but am not a pro at Pokemon!

Just a Pokemon to teach HM Moves, Useless, A blob of pink fur, does not look good. In short I hate it!

Lol mew doesn't evolves into mewtwo

It doesn't even listen

43 Flareon Flareon, known in Japan as Booster, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
