Top Ten Most Overhated Pokemon of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Delphox Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

So... I'm not the only one who likes Delphox? Yay.

To the person who dares to find someone who likes Delphox, I exist. Delphox is one of my favorite Pokemon.

It's just not fair. And even hard to fit in with this fandom.

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

2 Garbodor Garbodor Garbodor, known in Japan as Dustdas, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise introduced in Generation V. It is categorized as the Trash Heap Pokémon.

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

Just because of its type - boltslegend

4 Charizard 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.

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

To overrated

Charizard is actaully the best pokemon EVER he is my most favroited pokemon

The main reasonpeople hate charizard is because he's overrated. very dumb reason to dislike it. I know charizard is the most overrated mon around but still love it - boltslegend

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.

He's too annoing - Unitywolf12

I agree its shoved up our faces to much but is the perfect face for the franchice - boltslegend

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 Vanillite Vanillite

I don't hate it. It makes me hungry. Even though I'm lactose intolerance.

Because its 802 Pokemon.
Pokemon craze should've finished after gen 3.

Vanillite (and its whole evolution line) is cute, and it doesn't deserve the hate it gets

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

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

It's the god representitive of the franchice - boltslegend

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

8 Torterra Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I love tortarra but agree its weak - boltslegend

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

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

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!

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

I actually love this Pokémon but I think people hate it because of its evolution line

I love samurott - boltslegend

And torterra - BUSTA

The Contenders

11 Jynx 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.

worst ever - boltslegend

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 Klefki Klefki

It’s a neat (if obscure) idea, neat execution and a unique, odd yet interesting design that grows on you as you start to realise the power it’s packing with Prankster.


14 Swampert Swampert Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

so cute

OverHATED not Overrated..

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

15 Porygon Porygon

Yeah. Porygon didn't cause the lights, Pikachu did. Get your facts straight. - Pokemonfan10

It's only hated because of the anime episode, and because of the worst Pokemon ever, pikachu, who caused the seizure. And then game freak thought "hmm let's ban porygon because pikachu is da best and ash is epic so there"(who came up with that idea? )

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 :(

16 Muk Muk Muk, known in Japan as Betbeton, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

The most horrible Pokemon from my childhood.

17 Bidoof Bidoof

Why do people hate my child


One of the last pokemon you capture in shadows of almia. The badguy used 7 of them.

He has a mask after evolving which is so AMAZING and cute. Bidoof is awesome.

20 Chesnaught Chesnaught Chesnaught, known in Japan as Brigarron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
21 Electrode Electrode

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

22 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Infernape is one of the best Fighting pokemon of all time.

what? - Unitywolf12

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

What? People hate Infernape? - PerfectImpulseX

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

This pokemon is such a beast ngl - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

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

When it was first revealed, everyone made fun of it. Boy, were they wrong! Popplio is actually the strongest starter in the whole region, not to mention that mine beat all 4 kahunas. Here’s a fact you didn’t know about it’s final evolution, primarina ( only for US/UM ): You can teach it TOXIC AND ENERGY BALL. Yep, you heard that right. Toxic and energy ball, even though primarina is weak to both of those types. - IceFoxPlayz

24 Magnemite Magnemite

Worst steel type - Unitywolf12

He's sucks, the olther steel type is better than him - Unitywolf12

25 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.

Oh wait! Who hates Rayquaza? Rayquaza isn't even hated, he's one of the best legendaries and one of the Pokémon that are impossible to hate!

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

26 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime
27 Gardevoir Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I hate how people think all Gardevoir's are female when it clearly states that the gender ratio is 50/50 for the MALE and female Kirlia to evolve into a Gardevoir

Used to be my favorite Pokemon, but the whole fandom made me feel disgusted.

I really think that she's underrated. I mean, a lot of people hate her because of the "fandom". She could only be overrated if she's appearing too much or of way too beloved like Eevee or Jigglypuff.

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

29 Sylveon Sylveon Sylveon, known in Japan as Nymphia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Worst pokemon ever - Unitywolf12

30 Stunfisk Stunfisk
31 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...

32 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
33 Glaceon Glaceon

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

34 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon, known in Japan as Emperte, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

No! My sinnoh starter here? - Unitywolf12

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

They're EVERYWHERE - IceFoxPlayz

36 Patrat

If you had ever played pokemon black or white then you know why this is hated.
It pops up at the start of the game all the time and you know that it is useless and even if you evlove it nothing changes.
It's really annoying seeing in front of you the same pokemon all the time while knowing it is useless.

37 Goodra Goodra Goodra is a fictional creature in the Pokemon franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Goodra is a Dragon type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Sliggoo and the final evolved form of Goomy. Classified as the Dragon Pokemon, Goodra is a very slimy, yet affectionate Pokemon, and likes to hug its trainers, more.

Sure, it may not have the best speed or strength around, but it’s an all out beast when you teach her the right moves. Goopy here was more on the gentle side, but get on the wrong side of her and you’ll be burnt to a crisp. - IceFoxPlayz

Goodra is like one of the most well-developed Pokémon in a gen 6.
“She’s looks nothing like a dragon” She based on Lou Carcolh, which is a mythical DRAGON snail beast in a French folklore.
“Her defense and speed are the worst” You clearly haven’t seen her base stats especially her Sp. Def. Also, her hidden ability Gooey is so useful for solving her problem with low defense and speed as anyone who PHYSICALLY attacks her gets their SPEED lowered. Plus, Goodra being just a Dragon-type is perfect. What do the other Psuedo Legendaries have for type defense cons? One Ice-type attack can do four times damage towards Dragonite, Garchomp, and Salamence. And one Fairy-Type attack can do four times the damage to Hydreigon and Kommo-o. While Goodra can resist 2 moonblasts and still stand strong. Also, she’s one of the few dragon-types that can actually learn poison type moves (besides Toxic).
“She’s too weak to win competitive battles” 1.) Maybe she was intended as a ...more

39 Incineroar Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Please don’t kill me. I personally like Incineroar. - Swampert02

40 Luvdisc Luvdisc
41 Fearow Fearow
42 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.

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

He is so underrated

44 Bisharp Bisharp

No please no don't hate my bisharp - Unitywolf12

45 Serperior Serperior

Who hate serperior is just a crappy genwunner, he is one of the best grass types - Unitywolf12

46 Alolan Exeggutor Alolan Exeggutor

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