Top Ten Overhated Pokemon Anime Human Characters


The Top Ten

1 Ash Ketchum Ash Ketchum Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

Ash suck, he's so dumb and annoying, He's not even a strong pokemon trainer, I gonna hate Ash forever after! - darthvadern

Thank God he's finally number 1! After all, I kind of like him again due to him having trained hard in the XY series and actually standing a chance in the Pokemon League rather than just flat out losing again. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


Ash can't do anything without constantly being attacked. Even if he's doing great, his haters have to find reasons to bash him. Like him defeating Hala even though defeating a gym leader type of a character on his first try rarely happens and it shows that he still has a lot of his competence. (Technically he never lost to anyone in the SM anime because Pikachu never fainted. Only weakened enough where he was close to fainting.)

Look I'm not big on trying to like Ash either, but you have to admit a lot of hate towards him can be unwarranted at times. - Rue

2 Serena Serena Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

I love Serena! I don't understand why people hate her so much. Yeah, she might not have been as complex as Dawn, but the point of her journey was to find her own path. That's something that kids need to understand. She is definitely the most over hated pokemon anime humans.

With the fanbase being annoying, it's really impossible to like her - yungstirjoey666

Okay, I get it! It's annoying that she spoils Ash! But does she seriously deserve this much hate!? I'm complexly neutral with her, and I still think she's overhated.

Why do people hate Serena so much. She's not the bad character people make her out to be, seriously!

3 Iris

Iris is actually the most overhated character in the show and she doesn't deserve it. People constantly complain about how she keeps calling Ash a kid. Come on people, it's a FLAW. You hate her for callin Ash a kid, but loves Misty for yelling at him? It just doesn't add up. I'd rather be called a kid than to be yelled so much. Seriously, where's your logic. In my opinion NONE of the main characters in Pokemon deserves that much hate. While I have favorites (Jessie, James, Ash and May) they're all great characters and a varied bunch for everyone to love, whichever is your favorite is supposed to make you happy as a fan. So why show so much hate and ruin everything for other fans? It's ok to not like something, but you don't have to be an ass about it. But while she's not in my top 5 (she'd be 9th though) Iris is the most overhated Pokemon character ever and the one I feel like defending most because she deserves better. You call Iris annoying, over and over. But it's YOU who are the ...more

Iris is not hated by the fanbase, but the writers as well. That's sad, because she has so much potential and I wish the writers could develop her further. She won 99 pokemon battles as a kid, as well as fought a drilbur with her bare hands. She has an amazing ability to never give up as well as stand up for what she believes is right. Idc what people say, I think Iris is the most interesting character in the main cast. She's flawed and all, but that's what makes her relatable

Iris deserves higher than Serena - yungstirjoey666

How come Iris is 3rd, when Serena and Ash who are VERY overrated takes the 1st and 2nd place?

4 Misty Misty

She deserves the hate.

So basically you will spend your time bashing a cartoon character other than worrying about the amount of pollution. - Arcxia

A character who did nothing in whole show

Overrated & only liked 'because SHES the ORIGINAL1! 1! 1! 1! 2! 2! 1! 1! '

Iris is 'mean, naggy, abusive, & unsupportive' to ash? Go watch OS again, & closely this time genwunners. There was rarely a time Misty was nice, didn't nag him, not abusive to him, or was supportive to him. - person5000

5 Dawn Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. more.
6 Pual

Paul is spelled wrong - PokemonGOSucks

7 Brock Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . more.

Brock is nowhere near overhated. - Rue

8 Bonnie
9 Clemont Clemont Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. more.
10 Harley

The Contenders

11 Cilan Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

There are good reasons to not like Cilan and there are also those stupid reasons like how he "replaced Brock" - Rue

12 Mallow Mallow

Le Me: What about the OBVIOUS best character in the S&M (LOL) Series: Mallow
Everybody: Who?
That's it in a nutshell.

13 Gary Oak Gary Oak Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak . He had cheerleaders & his own car. more.


14 Jessie

She's honestly my least favorite of Team Rocket but like the others, I can't help to cut her some slack because she has such a bad life and Team Rocket being together because they only have each other. (Unless you count Bewear, but Bewear probably won't be like Wobbuffet and stay in the show) - Rue

She had a bad life, but no one sees her development because all her potential lays in the CD Drama. I say "Bring the CD Drama story into the show! ". People hate her for what she does, but fail to see through it and what she's really about.

15 Miette
16 Alain Alain

As much as I dislike Alain, I'll admit he's overhated. Especially after his league battle with Ash. - Rue
