Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon Charactersyungstirjoey666
The Top Ten
At this point, with all the whining to bring Serena to the Alola region, I think she is the most overrated. Even more than Misty. Serena is overrated for the wrong reasons. The only reason she is liked so much is because of Amourshipping! At least Misty had something going for her. She loved water Pokemon, she wasn't a push over like Serena, and when she stopped traveling with Ash and Brock, she became an official gym leader.
All of Pokegirl always has something interesting. Misty has personality, May has development, Dawn has passion, Iris has talent. But when this girl came... aside from her childhood thirst she got NOTHING.
She's not overrated, almost everybody on this site hates her. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Yeah the scene where she and Ash kiss is very overrated. But Serena is still one of my favorite pokemon characters of all time behind NV 28 Comments
Everyone say he beat gold in mount silver but the result of that battle show that the winner is gold - VectorVenom
There wasn't really any canon winner. That asides, Red is cool and all, but he's just another game protagonist, only with an official status.
Manga Red is different - yungstirjoey666
How is red any stronger than any of the other gaming protagonists? - HeavyDonkeyKong
Put this guy at #1 right now! I don't hate him, but if you say 1 more thing on hate towards ash, I am going to punch the heck out of you.
He gets all the attention when in reality he's just another game protagonist - boltslegendV 2 Comments
Lol not anymore. He's now underrated due to the fact that this site has labeled him as the third weakest Pokemon. How is the tpossible? he's not even in the lowest tier... - HeavyDonkeyKong
Byfar the most overrated pokemon of all time. - SaltyMcSalt
Remember the worst climax of any anime/cartoon was courtisy of charizard. that's enough to put him top 5 - boltslegendV 2 Comments
I kind of have to admit that she gets too many praises as a character. I prefer May or Dawn as a character. - MLPFan
Yes, and mainly because of nostalgia. Just think how different things would be if May, Dawn, or Iris had been the first female companion.
I've watched Pokemon since the very first season and for some reason, I never loved Misty the most, even if no other female companion existed. I can't explain why. I just never did. - Rue
Google Misty on DeviantArt.
I DARE YOU.
Not for ages 12 and under
Overrated doesn't automatically mean someone is bad
Oh yes, Cynthia is so overrated, game and anime.
She has no personnality, her only role is to be "badass" and "sexy" but she does nothing memorable. "But Cynthia gave you a Togepi and the medicine for the Psyduck(s)! " Almost every character gives you something, this isn't impressive at all. In the anime they try to make you think (her) Garchomp is unbeatable, but man it is not. They make her look so strooong, smaaart and flawless that it becomes boring.
The worst thing is her fanbase. Always saying she is the best girl, the best battler and champion (really? I defeated her on my first try in Pearl), the prettiest and always comparing her to Diantha for no reason at all! Both aren't good characters (I don't like Diantha's lines) but all the hate Diantha receives from Cynthia fans makes me sad. - RedLily
I like Cynthia, but really. Favourite champion discussions are extremely boring because it's always Cynthia. Sinnoh is overrated in general. First female champion? So what? We were going to get one eventually. She plays a role in the story. What other champions play a major part in the story? Let's see...Blue...Lance...Steven...pretty much all of them. She's strong? I have no argument against that besides you can build a team to perfectly counter hers. She was difficult because the level jump in Sinnoh was EXTREMELY stupid. Any champion can be difficult. It just depends on your team.
No way si he overrated. Everybody on youtube hates him now just because he beat ash in th kalos league. grow up. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Pikachu. Is. Everywhere.
I personally think Pikachu is the most overrated Pokémon. These days, I wish Rhydon was the mascot of Pokémon instead of Pikachu. - ArthurEngine
I love Pikachu, but it overshadows the other mice pokemon (including its evolutions) far too much. Upsetting that Pikachu’s stayed the mascot through regions that it isn’t native to. I’m glad Mimikyuu got a little more focus.
Gary is so cute get him off the list
He would have been a better protagonist.
I don't know why he iverrated by fangirks like in the anime but whey not as bad as sereana - Toptenanimallovers
Pikachu is ash’s first Pokemon & should be his strongest (barring maybe charizard). Yet Gary easily beat it not only once, but twice & with some Pokemon he just evolved not too long ago (electrvire). So in my humble opinion, Gary is stronger than ash. However, ash is underrated & shouldn’t be hated because he could be weaker than Gary 😐V 1 Comment
No he's underrated - boltslegend
To the previous comment: Please calm down. What's "overrated" and what's "underrated" are merely subjective terms.Maybe she wasn't a Mary Sue, but I did find her a bit annoying. I was just expressing my opinion. Also, please don't use disability as an insult. - yungstirjoey666
Overrated on deviantart. Bonnie was a mistake.
Nah, I don't think so. Bonnie has the small percentage of the exposure to the fans from this character and I think she's quite underrated to her statistics of her life and also to her personality and her type from other companions she cherish with among the others. And by the way, she's minimally flawed which Bonnie may considered to be by far the most well-developed character on the XY/XYZ series on Pokémon among side to her appearance, not to mention the ''Zygarde Arc'' is when she have the serious side on her own self because of her best friend Squishy that is been tested and controlled by Team Flare. Sure, she may be annoying, but that's the part of her personality, she loves to tease her brother and actually supported the others from help. - yamionthetrap
Let me ask you something for a sec: How exactly is it fair to criticize Bonnie for not working towards her goals? She HAD no goals to achieve. She isn’t even a Pokémon trainer yet so she doesn’t need to work for anything cause she existed to add comedy to the show and because she is adorable. If anything to be honest, she kinda did work for her goals to be a trainer throughout the show because of traveling with Ash so that inspired her to want to battle him one day when she does become a trainer. And because she took care of a lot of Pokémon such as Flabebe, Tyrunt, and even Zygarde along the way. And if all of this doesn’t count as working towards her goals then I honestly don’t know what does. Heck, she was even brave enough to go against Squishy in the Flare Crisis when it was destroying her home city and sing to it to have it come to her side once more. Honestly since Bonnie was only 7 years old and not a trainer then she didn’t need any goals to ...more - TGBBOD
Wait a minute. What the heck? She's the most hated Sun and Moon female if I recall.
A pokeshipper added her here. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Ash fans are really spoiled and says illogical things about Jessie and James appearing too much. News flash for you, Ash appears more and you're being a complete hypocrite.
There's so many Ash fans who keeps saying the TRio appears too much, this makes me hate Ash because those people are such hypocrites. Just because Ash is the main character doesn't mean he has to be overfocused on, a lot of shows has proven against that and varying on character focus keeps a show refreshing. The TRio actually needs more screentime, so Ash fans are spoiled selfish brats considering all the screentime he gets yet says that about the TRio.
To me, Ash Ketchum is one of those characters who are both overrated and overhated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I will admit, Ash is a great trainer and all, and I get that he is the main protagonist and all, but I personally think it's time for a new main protagonist in the Pokémon anime, like say, Ethan, Brendan, Lucas, Hilbert, Nate, Calem, or Elio. Or better yet, give one of the female protagonists the lead role in a saga.
I mean, if Digimon and Beyblade can change their main protagonist, why can't Pokémon? - ArthurEngine
Underrated. people hate him for "hacking" completly oblivious to the fact that hacking doesn't exist in the anime - boltslegend
Apparently I'm overrated - yungstirjoey666
Like why how did this "character" even become known - boltslegend
People are praising his Rattata like second coming of Jesus
Why is rattata a memeV 1 Comment
Greninja deserves to be higher than Charizard - yungstirjoey666
Yeh he deserve to be on top 1
XY fantards like to believe ashninja can defeat charizard or peakachu. Uh, when the f did ashninja defeat a legendary Pokemon? Oh right, NEVER. Oh ashninja got mega gardivar sweating & on her knees? Who knows if diantha was even taken the battle seriously. She went along with the battle to see what ashninja was capable of. Ashninja may be strong, but no it’s not ash’s strongest Pokemon. It’s about as strong as blazefernape minus the low hp hazard.
I don't like sun and moon, so I don't like Lillie.
Lillie has next to no development. Oh, she crossed a bridge. She spontaneously gained the confidence to stand up to her mother and then went back to being shy waifu bait. BRILLIANT character development. Genius.
Hmm shy archetype isn't good
Have you even seen her great character development in the games? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
He abused and abandoned his Pokemon. - yungstirjoey666
I despise him
Very overrated she is one of the worst gym leaders. if your not some 8 year old then sweeping her is easy - boltslegend
Honestly, Pikachu's not even close to being overrated now that this thing exists.
Brock ain't overrated, he's funny
Your typical "The cafe is on me, guys! " all year long.
Lol that's a lie - yungstirjoey666
He is the most overrated god of all the pokemons. 1: mewtwo is the hero of all his franchise. 2: mewtwo is not with weakest moves (Even confusion)... 3: mewtwo have friendship. 4: mewtwo have too much attack and special attack. - mewtwo1
Oh...My...Gosh. These complaints about snowy taking Nebby's place need to stop RIGHT...NOW!
