Top 10 Most Useless Pokémon


The Top Ten

1 Magikarp Magikarp Pokemon. Orange fish with whiskers resembled by only one hair. Water type. Evolves to Gyarados at level 20.

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

This Pokemon is not useless since it evolves into something useful

Is it useless when it evolves

2 Unown

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

At least Metapod has a cool evolution and the same with Magikarp, unlike this one.

3 Metapod Metapod Bug pokemon. Evolves from Caterpie and to Butterfree. Who knows what it is? Caterpillars and Butterflies dont even exist. Definitely not a cocoon of some sort.

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...

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... -_-

Don't catch a wild Metapod. All it does is only to harden over and over. - latios632

He is the very best!

4 Delibird 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

5 Weedle Weedle

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!

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

6 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

Kakuna used harden! It does nothing of use!

8 Jigglypuff 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

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

10 Rattata Rattata

Rattata has high speed, but the rest of its stats is very bad. All it does is only to tail whip. - latios632

The Contenders

11 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

12 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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.

I one shot Red's Charizard. Need I say more

13 Audino

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?

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.

15 Cleffa

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!

16 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

Sunkern is bad OK, having 30 overal base stats, but you gotta admire: it can have perfect pokéathlon stats, as one in five, over a total of 493, the others being Mew, Ditto, Arceus and Giratina's Origin Forme. If you want to beat the pokéathlon easily, it's the easiest to get.

17 Pidgey Pidgey

Pidgeot is really good. Get your facts right

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

Easily the worst bird Pokemon out there

18 Phione Phione

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.

Many of the Pokémon on this list have a purpose: to evolve into something more powerful. Phione has no reason to exist. It is simply a Manaphy with a worse design and significantly lower stats. And yet it's still banned in the Battle Tower/Subway/Maison. I was hoping maybe I could breed some Phiones to trade over the GTS, but nobody wants just a Phione. Even if you're doing a battle with friends that doesn't restrict your Pokémon, you're never going to want to use Phione when you could just use Manaphy. It'd be like choosing Pichu over Pikachu in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

19 Feebas

I have 7 feebas in tcg helped me lose

Feebas is very hard to find in Pokémon R/S/E and D/P/Pt. Also, it has the same moveset as Magikarp. It is also harder to evolve! - latios632

20 Bidoof

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

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.

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

Ugh this thing I hate it
