Top Ten Most Overrated Pokemon Anime Arcs

The Top Ten

1 XY&Z

I'm honestly not a huge fan of XY&Z. Amourshipping was basically forced in order to attract mote fans. No development and too one-sided. Just blushing throughout. I don't hate Serena, but the romance is unnecessary.

Ash-Greninja also came out of the blue to attract more fans and to serve as Ash's deus ex machina. Well, at least it served an importance plot.

I also found Ash bland to be honest. I will accept the fact that he was more competent unlike the idiot from BW, but I feel that he was a bit too positive. At least he had his negative side after Wulfric's battle. Honestly I feel that DP handled competent Ash much better, as he had a motivation other than his usual "never give up" attitude.

The league, while beautifully animated, was rushed.

Team Rocket was very annoying and just the same "steal the twerp's Pikachu" kind of thing.

Alain was interesting in Mega Evolution Special, but when put in the main plot, he was overpowered just to prevent Ash ...more - yungstirjoey666

This is actually my favorite one. However, I can see why it would be overrated. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Amoirshipper fiesta

XY was more like a fanfiction

2 Origins

It had way more potential to be good. It felt more like the Charizard show. - yungstirjoey666

Just charizard's dick licking - Brachiozaur

This made more red fans. Way to go Game Freak that's just what we needed. NOT!

Its not better than the anime people. Four episodes. Ten second battles. Pokemon have no personalities whatsoever but in the Anime they do. A Gary Stu Protagonist. No character development. And yes there can be character development in four episodes. The mega evolution special proved that.

Overall the only thing that it has over the overall anime is the protagonist winning the league in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Indigo League

People saying that this was the only good season. Its nice and nostalgic to watch and all, but aside from humor it pales in comparison to the rest. And the rest are funny to in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

4 XY
5 Mega Evolution Special

I have to say though; this series is much better than Origins and Generations combined. It's long and has actual character development. - yungstirjoey666

6 Pokemon Generations

I like Pokemon Generations, especially the animation and the dark atmosphere. - yungstirjoey666

This is sort of a slap in the face. This series could have been so much more with the right amount of focus. Is it not possible to have two full blown Pokemon animes then?! They completely breezed through blues Pokemon League like ugh I mean. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Orange Islands
8 Diamond and Pearl
9 Best Wishes

But everybody seems to hate it though so... - HeavyDonkeyKong

Well, I had to fill in at least ten, and there's not a whole lot of options here - yungstirjoey666

10 Johto Saga

If anything its underrated. People hate the filler. It has no more filler than other ones. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 Sun and Moon

Inb4 "it's nothing but filler! "

Every Pokemon season has filler.

"Team Rocket sucks now! "

They actually defeated ash in this season.

"Ash is a goofball! "

Watch orange islands.

"The new girls suck! Bring back Misty/Serena! "

Not only did Lillie already go through far more character development than Serena already, and I really did love Serena. But she also didn't need over forty episodes in order to be even slightly likeable, unlike both misty and Serena in my opinion!

"The fight scenes are terrible! "

Watch Indigo League. Or even better yet. Watch Origins.

"The Animation Is HELL! "


"It's not funny anymore! "

Watch the final Kiawe Scene from episode 13 in my opinion!

"Ash Lost To Team Rocket! Pikachu Is Weak Now! "

But I thought that you wanted Team Rocket to be strong.

"Pikachu best Hariyama! Such BS! "

But I thought that you ...more - HeavyDonkeyKong
