Top 10 Most Overrated First Generation Pokemon

YanRocky

The Top Ten

1 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.

There are over 700 Pokemon... Yet this stupid yellow rat takes ALL the spotlight.

Why do people only care so much about this thing?

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

This thing got 2 mega evolutions, does this speak loud enough to you? If not, then here we go. Charizard is bad, he really is, and everyone praises him, even my friends praise him practically. There's a good reason why. You see, even when I was 8, I thought Charizard sucked. And he was actually the weakest member in my party, getting knocked out even more then my pikachu, which I thought I couldn't replace. But oh boy, then my competitive phase came in. You see, back in gen 5, Charizard was awful. No defense, weak to a common hazard 4x, and never could finish anything off, at least typhosion had something to work with attacking wise. Oh but then the Mega's came, which turned Charizard to mediocre to... Well you do the math if this is my vote. You see, Charizard x has tough claws, sounds good with the dragon typing right? Okay... Name a Fire move with claws involved... I thought so. And it's special and normal attack stat are the same instead of getting a boost in attack... Smart. And ...more

The main reason why people barely even know that Pokemon Blue exists. - xandermartin98

I get that Pikachu is overrated too but how is this thing not number 1

Chariard USED to be overrated! - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

There's an entire YouTube channel dedicated to making rigged battles where Mewtwo always wins. That alone gives him the #1 spot.

Why is he even a legendary? Other legendaries created land, sea, space, time, death, life, and Mewtwo is just a really strong morphed cat..? It's odd. He's not spiecial, his design isn't great, and neither are his megas, he is practilly the STAR, besides Pikachu and Charizard, starring in his own movie, and getting two mega evos. Yep, Overatted.

4 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and ...read more.
5 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Exactly what about Gengar is so cool?

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

What the?! Bulbasaur is UNDERATTED if you ask me, every one always chooses charmander, or squirtle!

Bulbasaurs fat and stupid and people just whine he's underrated he's nothing guys he's nothing...

Bulbasuar is over rated, yes, but he is my personal favourite and he has some pretty good stats. Also, how is Squirtle not in Bulbasuar's place? Everyone I know, they're favourite Pokemon is Squirtle.

What he underrated,everyone chooses charmander o squirtle but not bulbasaur

8 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .
9 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.
10 Eevee Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Where do I start honestly? Eevee is a great Pokemon, amazing eeveelutions. But after seeing many fanarts in deviant art, I felt something terrible. Like I was going to get cancer or something. I wanted to punch my computer so hard. Honestly what's so cute about eevee? Or even pikachu? I don't think Sylveon is cute either, I just think it's really stylish and pretty but lucky for you I don't freak out over it. Eevee is so overrated, in the top best electric pokemon, jolteon is FIRST. You know which should be first? Luxray. Luxray is way better, an amazing ability as well, and badass design. I still like the eeveelutions, but some like espeon, umbreon, and flareon are just lazy. Sylveon is not a lazy design, but not as good as Luxray, which is one of the best Pokemon of all time. If you think Luxray is overrated, it's not, it's underrated. But it is still the coolest Pokemon and I don't freak out over it at all either. It's personally my favorite. If you don't like it, I respect that as ...more

Only evolves into a new form after you buy it a stone, and there are better Pokemon with stronger stats for each of those types. It's a funny Pokemon, but not a terrribly effective one.

This should be higher.

Why is an empty canvas so popular? It also shadows true adorable pokemon like Jumpfluff, Whimsicott,Quilava and Cinccino
