Most Overrated Pokemon Types


The Top Ten

1 Fire

So overloved... I don't think that is a word


2 Dragon

Why do people like Dragon types so much?
First of all, Fairy is immune to them!
Second of all, they're only super effective against themselves!
Third, they have 3 weaknesses, the same amount as BUG has! For whatever reason you love this type, while hating on them.
And fourth, Dragon resists Water moves, but Water can learn Ice moves, which can help the Water Pokemon be super effective against the Dragon Pokemon.
Did I miss any facts? Let me know, and that will also be a reason they're overrated.

Dragon types are good and powerful, but overrated. - RiverClanRocks

Just so overrated. Just because it looks cool in fairy tales doesn't mean it's the best. Morons

They are way less overrated then a lot of other types! Fairy should be a the top of this list!

3 Water

I hate this type so munch

Man, Water Type Fanboys, so obnoxious. I always find water type fans hating the fire type starter. "Oh, Squirtle is better than Charmander because of a type advantage! " Geez louise.

By that logic, Bulbasaur is better than Squirtle because of its type advantage, and same with Bulbasaur and Charmander. It's a never-ending paradox or rock-paper-scissors. - yungstirjoey666

Magikarp explains it

Too common. - RiverClanRocks

4 Electric

I think this type should be overrated, because Pikachu is an electric type. Pikachu is one of the most overrated one. Anyway, electric is still my favorite, but it is weak against ground types. It is also weak against itself and steel.

I love it. *NOT BECAUSE OF PIKACHU* - Pokemonfan10

5 Ground

This is the most common pokemon type in a competitive team, I mean it's hard to make a competitive team without having a ground type pokemon on it. The only downfall is that they do not get many moves but I cannot complain, earthquake is enough to destroy everything. Plus all ground pokemons are supercool, look at exadrill; he's badass. Primal Groudon is cool, overrated and way too broken that it puts to shame kyogre. I was expecting ground type to at least take the second place after dragon types.


6 Dark
7 Psychic

After a lot of calculating, the truth was determined that Psychic type is far more overrated than Fire type.

Every psychic explain more better than all another pokemon

8 Grass
9 Ghost

Seriously? Why is ghost all the way down in 8th place? Normal is immune to them! Yes, yes, they're immune to normal back, but normal is just... Weak. I mean, not weak, but uncommon. Ok so I agree with dragon, however I like the others above this type.
Fire: I have no clue why fire is number one. They resist six types and are super effective against four.
Water: Only have two weakness (electric and grass) which makes them a good choice.
Ground: No, ground is underrated. They obliterate electric. Electric is my favorite type, but ground is good too because they're both super effective against and are immune to them.
Electric: As I said, my favorite type. They're the second fastest behind flying, and they only have one weakness, as I said, ground. Plus Pikachu is electric type!
Dark: You think psychic is a great type, but dark OBLITERATES them! Not only are they super effective against it, but they're immune to it as well!
And finally
Grass: Just because they have ...more

Ghost is underrated if anything.

10 Fighting

The Contenders

11 Poison
12 Fairy

Fairy could of been a good type but now Gamefreak is making every feminine pokémon a fairy type. We don't need a feminist type.

Fairies are apparently better than dragons just because of a type advantage - yungstirjoey666

13 Bug

Well, they are terrible. - RiverClanRocks

14 Steel

Steel types is the absolute best type in Pokémon, but isn’t recognized, so this deserves to be towards the bottom of this list since it is so underrated.

15 Ice

Ice is too overrated

16 Normal
17 Rock
18 Flying
