Top Ten Most Overhated Pokemon of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Delphox Delphox

There is nothing wrong with Delphox, but everybody hates on it for the stupidest reasons.

Everyone hates on it why!? Because it's not Greninja!? Maybe because it's better than Greninja.

I dare you to find someone that doesn't hate Delphox. Furthermore, I dare you to find someone who actually LIKES Delphox! How many millenniums will you take?

hate it

2 Garbodor Garbodor

He's ugly, but I'm pretty sure he has some great stats. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm sorry heavydonkeykong but Charizard is not more hated than the infamous Garbodor. - Rue

I've actually never been bothered by his appearance. And I find it funny how people hate on Unova for having a Trash Bag as a Pokemon, yet Kanto had puddles of sludge... - HeavyDonkeyKong

Lol am I the only one who thinks his design is ok? lol

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

Why is Charizard hated so much? Oh, because he's "overrated". If you don't like Charizard, fine. I'm just tired of all the Charizard haters that hate Charizard only because he's 4X weak to Rock. Really? That's a TERRIBLE reason to hate Charizard. What about Gyarados, which has a 4X weakness to Electric? (Not that I hate Gyarados, it's a cool Pokemon, but you get my point.) There are other reasons too, but I don't want to explain them now.

Gyarados is much slower than charizard, hate to break it too you. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I vote this cause I think it unfair it has 2 mega but blastoise and venasaur doesn't

This isn't a list of Pokemon getting deserving hate it's a list of Pokemon getting too much hate in my opinioN! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Charizard is both very overrated and a bit overhated. It doesn't really deserves all the praise, or two megas, and it's not as competitively as they say it is (at least when Stealth Rock finally became a thing). And no doubt does the fanbase is cringe.

However, the fact that Charizard is on the top 5 on the weakest Pokemon list here is a bit too far, considering how Charizard, while rather weak for a starter, is far from the worst Pokemon in existence. As HeavyDonkeyKong said, Charizard is actually viable in NU, while many Pokemon are still struggling to be in PU. - Yungstirjoey

4 Torterra Torterra

How can someone not like it. It's a huge turtle/dinosaur pokemon that can have other pokemon I've in it. Also can beat every other starter with Earthquake. - Lukes

See why Pokemon is going dumber. A creature with a tree on top of it, I'm guessing.

How is it overhated? I've seen nothing but praise for this guy!

People hate Torterra? - NikBrusk

5 Pikachu 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.

What's wrong with him

What's so bad about this thing? Firs tof all, IT'S THE FACE OF THE WHOLE ENTIRE Pokemon INDUSTRY FRANCHISE! Of course its gonna be well recopgnized! Just because a Pokemon is immediately recognized doesn't mean tis overrated! JUST FAMOUS in my opinion! Saying that a Pokemon is overrated just because it happens to be recognizeable just because it is the ehad mascot of such a famous franchise that is as such as famous as Pokémon is just completely relatively positively ABSURD in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

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

I never liked Arceus. It's not because it replaced Mew's place as the first Pokemon. It's literally because Arceus' design if too weird for me to like. Also, it's movie left a bad taste in my mouth...and I accidentally discovered Arceus through an action replay and it scared me so bad that I stopped playing my DS for like 3 months. (I was a kid back then) - Rue

It has more haters over lovers despite of this pokemon can be any element either elemental or in the periodic table you want to be from Fire to Fairy and from Hydrogen to Oganesson! - JuliaRandomly

Wait, did Mew create the Pokémon universe or did Arceus?

I went to the best pokemon list and saw Arceus. Then I read the comments. All the positive comments about Arceus had dislikes. All of them.
Without Arceus, there would be no Pokemon
He was created years after Bulbasaur, but he is technically the first pokemon

8 Vanillite Vanillite

We have 802 Pokemon, why can't one be a little ice cream cone?

I think people just don't like the creations of pokemon mixed with food this pokemon is NOT EDIBLE but it's very cute.

9 Magikarp 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.

He should be #2 because all he does is SPLASH! The Power of Splash!

Magikarp, use Splash!
It didn't do anything

Magikarp: Splashing like a boss! - bugger

Magikarp evolves into Gyrados who I a very good Physical Sweeper in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

He's one of my favorite,and evolves into Gyarados,really cute too by the way

10 Samurott Samurott

And torterra - BUSTA


This is the only pokemon in this list that doesn�'t suck - BUSTA

The Newcomers

? Zubat Zubat
? Unown 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)

Its not supposed to be strong in battle...

The Contenders

11 Jynx Jynx

How is this not in the top tens? People hate it because it's 'ugly' & it's 'Nikki manaji' or whatever (even though I think jynx was made before she became popular). & also the racism thing which
A. Japanese mostly don't get what we (USA) did to blacks so they didn't understand 'black face' (I think that's what it's called? ).
B. Jynx is actually a Japanese trend for girls that was back in the day, it has nothing to do with racism.
C. They changed her coloring so it isn't racist anymore. So stop complaining about that.

And in the end, jynx has a decent move pool & good stats (expcally for a gen 1 Pokemon). But is sadly ignored for the above.

12 Trubbish
13 Porygon Porygon

I feel like the only reason why people hate this Pokemon is because of that one controversial episode of the anime that it starred in. - PerfectImpulseX

Poor porygon, it didn't make seizure :(

14 Swampert Swampert

Cute and powerful. How is it OVERrated. I think its pretty good.

Maybe the most underrated starter pokemon of all time. - JuliaRandomly


15 Muk Muk
16 Bidoof Bidoof

Cupcake face is cute! His evolution may be a bit stupid looking, but Bidoof is adorable!

Bidoof is a Bidoof

Agreed bidoof is an epic beaver

Bidoof needs some love. He's cooler than Rayquaza, Latios, Reshiram, Zapdos, Mewtwo, Charizard, Eevee & Darkrai combined

he's a beaver

17 Ambipom Ambipom

Wait...why do people hate Ambipom? - Rue

18 Electrode Electrode

It is one of the fastest pokemon in the game. Greninja's bane.

19 Infernape Infernape

These haters are not good people if they hate #Fire head monkey

What? People hate Infernape? - PerfectImpulseX

20 Magnemite Magnemite
21 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Yes its super OP! So what?!?!? - HeavyDonkeyKong

22 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime
23 Popplio Popplio Popplio is a water type starter Pokemon who made his debut in Pokemon Sun and Moon. It was based on a sea lion and circus clown. It evolves into Brionne and then into Primarina.

Popplio had so much crap when it was first revealed. One of the most hated starters in history. Undeserving but even if the hate subsided a lot, we need to keep in mind how despised it was at first. - Rue

24 Meganium Meganium
25 Glaceon Glaceon

It's so cute and strong! It's just the best!

26 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy more.
27 Voltorb Voltorb
28 Stunfisk Stunfisk
29 Incineroar Incineroar

30 Luvdisc Luvdisc

33 Xerneas Xerneas Xerneas is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a legendary Fairy type Pokemon, and the mascot of Pokemon X. Classified as the Life Pokemon, Xerneas has the ability to give eternal life, which occurs when the horns on its head shine in seven lights. When its life more.

Xerneas is made for the life and death concept of pokemon and is beautifully designed like crystals of Bismuth and is powerful to the eyes of gamers yet people hate this pokemon. - JuliaRandomly

Stop hating on Xerneus, Goatworlds! Yes, I'm calling you out because you're darn annoying! It is not the "skinny deer" that you refer to it as. We X players have feelings too.

34 Gardevoir Gardevoir

Seriously, EVERYBODY thinks Gallade is better than Gardevoir. It isn't her fault people love to put breasts and stuff like that on her

Gardevoir looks very innocent and people added some indecentness in the design! - JuliaRandomly

35 Feraligatr Feraligatr

He is so underrated

36 Chesnaught Chesnaught
37 Bisharp Bisharp
38 Serperior Serperior
39 Alolan Exeggutor Alolan Exeggutor
