Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon
Guys... Oh god. First let me say I was on IGN top 100 Pokemon and I saw where bulbasaur was in relation of squirtle and charmander. Look guys I know that venusaur isn't necessarily, but two tings, first bulbasusr is better than the other 2 starters at the beginning with better stats AND strong against the first to gym leaders, but that's charmander, now before I say this, people don't overate pikachu everybody just knows him, but WHY THE IS CHARIZARD NUMBER 1 OVER SO MANY OTHERS (oh yeah nostalgia) (also I think squrirtle-blastoise line is the worst gen 1 starter and HOW THE DID HE MAKE 3 AND VENUSAUR MAKE 15) and all I will say in closing is that he is so overrated that I have come to HATE HIM WITH A BURNING PASSION, because before I was on the internet I thought he was okay (on level with venasuar the people who says he sucks) I still like him more than blastoise in battle but HE IS MY LEAST FAVORITE GEN 1 STARTER OUTSIDE OF BATTLE
Charizard is absolutely overrated. Charizard is the most common choice of all the Non-Pokemon Fans' favorite Pokemon. He deserves to be in the NU tier! The thing has vile defenses due to it being 2 of the worst Defensive Types! Stealth Rock, Rock Slide or any Rock Type move takes 1 down! And if it does switch into Stealth Rock, it loses HALF OF ITS MAXIMUM HP! It's good offensively due to its high Sp Att and its Hidden Abililty - Solar Power - but you have to prevent it from losing its momentum, or else this atrocious defender will die. I love Charizard, but I would rather use Lucario.
I don't know why GAME FREAK loves charizard. Why Game Freak gives two of mega evolve to charizard? WHY? Anime is same as. Why Ash's Charmander only fully evolved in Kanto starters and Ash loves charizard more than bulbasaur and squirtle? It is UNFAIR! Charizard is weaker than Blastoise and Venusaur, even Typhlosion. Because too weak by rock and not useful in game as starter Pokemon. I'm so sad people remember only two Pokemon Pikachu and Charizard. Many People and even many Pokemon fanboys think charizard is the most strongest and best Pokemon ever, but I don't. I think Charizard is the most overrated Pokemon ever.
I can come up with excuses for the others. Pikachu isn't overrated, he's just the most well known. Eevee evolves into a bunch of cool Pokemon. Since when was Blastoise overrated, he wasn't overly popular and still isn't. The list can continue. But Charizard is in the top 5 most popular Pokemon, and compared to the other Pokemon of its caliber, all the other third stage starters, mega evolutions, some legendaries and even combinations of those, he is really lacking. Stealth rock, the commonly used example, wrecks it. Most Charizard lovers even admit that it's nostalgia based. I have no personal grudge against Charizard, but he is so overrated. And will no one bring up that until Sceptile in Hoenn it was the only Pokemon Ash had fully evolved? No problem with that, but I suspect that that's just a part of the reason.
We have over 400 Pokemon and still to this day, this yellow rat still hogs up everyone's spotlight in the Pokemon universe. Seriously, just like Team Rocket, Pikachu seriously does annoy it's audience. Ash Ketchum could have at least evolve it to Richu to create a new relationship because Pikachu is the prime example of the Pokemon franchise refusing to change which is why so many lost their interest with the franchise today. Even new generation of Pokemon games when Nintendo scrap out some of our favorites from the previous gen. To not make it's return, the yellow rat still remains in every single game that it's already annoying on to itself!
He is cute but far from cutest. And, many people are getting confused with overrated and popular because the have great stats and are a great part of your team. Some pokemon on this list are not overrated, they are just popular because you are not going to put a 300 base stat pokemon on your competitive team. You need pokemon with base stats of 500-700 or are really tactical. For example, Arceus is not overrated, he is the pokemon God. I just think that people should remember, some pokemon are strong and used more often. Your getting that confused with pokemon being used more often because of the people who think pikachu is super strong because ash beat some strong pokemon with it.
Get Pikachu to number one! This little electric rodent has been hogging up the limelight since gen 1. Nearly every girl in my class had a Pikachu on their team, and named it Daisy or Buttercup or something stupid like that. I was the only kid who had a Raichu. The boys, on the other hand... 90% of them adored Pikachu due to it being OP in the anime. 10% were these two brothers who I was actually pretty friendly with. They both knew the Mew behind the truck hoax was fake, and they also knew that Pikachu is the WEAKEST THING EVER. come on. Every time you evolve your Pikachu into a Raichu, someone in the world catches a shiny. That could be you. Evolve your Pikachu!
Oh my gosh, the rat is so awesome! I don't get it, how is Pikachu that bad. I know he is popular and cute (kinda) but, some people don't know he is really a cool Pokemon. Pikachu is sooo underrated in Pokemon (core) games, in reality it's the directors and creators fault. They should've stopped making Pikachu look bad and give other Pokemon a chance.
Pikachu is not the one to hate, it is the person who created him to hate.
If they just let other Pokemon get their spotlight then, Pikachu would be liked better. The directors and Pokemon company are stupid and need to change Pikachu, to make him better.
They should have made Meowth the mascot not Pikachu to make people feel better or that, not get a mascot.
Poor pikachu, is blamed for the director's stupidity. Pikachu haters are nothing but, garbage.
I think the worst part is they should change the plots of the anime like letting Pika win more battles.
Eevee is mostly popular on the side of the pokemon community that enjoys art, merchandise and things like making pokemon characters and ocs. It and it's eeveelutions are generally very cute, and have very simple but fulfilling designs. Not to mention, not only is it cute, but Eevee is a very unique pokemon, with a lot of potential. Eeveelutions can be very useful if you want a quick type fill-in for your team, but aren't the best for competitive play, which is completely fine! I think Eevee deserves some of it's praise, and it's understandable why so many people like it, but it certainly is overrated, I just feel like it doesn't deserve that much hate, because for the most part it's popularity is very reasonable.
Normal is a weak type on its own. But that's not the worst thing about eevee. EVERYBODY LOVES CHARIZARD but yet I voted for eevee because... ! Everyone says he's overrated! No one says eevee is though but really.. Eevee is WAY more overrated than him. Eevee also has horrible moves like quick attack and bite. They treat it like it's a GOD GUYS! Only THREE Eeveelutions (if that's how you spell them) Are strong! So stop praising this fox and learn that its weak! EEVEE TAKES OVERRATEDNESS WAY TO A NEW LEVEL, ITS LIKE EEVEE THE MASCOT. But pikachu is, So stop loving this weak little Pokemon!, !
I hate it.
Should be: Overhated
Eevee is Overrated
Reason: 1. Got 8 evolutions
2. Owned by many people (May,
3. Top in the list of cutest Pokemon
4. Everybody loves it
There are many Pokemon cuter than her
Here are some of them (Especially):
4. Mime jr.
Sorry for bringing Digimon into this but.. I think Koromon is way cuter than Eevee.
Eevee is pretty overrated and also, appears in the most fanfictions and comics etc. And mostly, I googled "Warrior Cats and Pokemon" (never really got into Warriors just was curious) and I saw fanfiction and it had horrible grammar and also, had two Eevee brothers or something like that if I remember correctly. EVERYONE, EVERYONE loves Eevee. It's like Pikachu but, million times double overrated. Almost no one hates this Pokemon but, let's mention Pikachu and others get hate even though they are popular but, Eevee doesn't get that much hate. Ugh.
Yeah, Lucario get's a bit too much hype. Ever since day one they treated this guy like a prophecy. I mean yeah they're strong, but their design looks like a blue Hong Kong Phooey and just seems kinda like furry bait. There's been over advertised Pokemon before like Charizard, Pikachu, Mewtwo and now Greninja. But Lucario takes the cake when it comes to getting under my skin. I don't know, being a character and monster designer myself, it just irks me that this thing isn't a crappy fan character on deviantart or tumblr. This Pokemon is also the Sonic OC of the Pokemon series, I can't tell you how many lucario Oc's I've seen and no offense but they all look like garbage.
Dear god where do I even begin. I start with people saying that, in personal experience, Lucario was pathetic. I try my hardest to see what's so great about this 'god' but I just don't like it. The design tries to be cool for the sake of being cool, the movepool is not the most diverse for my liking and the over hype, oh man... Lucario is often hailed as the best fighting type while I stick to my guns.
The mega was alright, but the fact it's the first one just reeks of fan service which ticks me off because I had to work to get my favorite (Hitmonlee who thank god isn't on this list)while Lucario was given on a silver platter.
All in all, I want to slap this thing. And all the fans now are sharpening their pitchforks.
This thing has been my favorite since the day I saw him in my Diamond version. It's not because he was in a movie; in fact, I saw the movie a long time after I even beat my Diamond version. I just always liked the design, and I never heard any hype about him from any person in real life ever. I never even knew he was considered overrated until just recently when a friend of mine told me. Honestly, it disappoints me to see that it's number 8 on this list, when basically every Gen 1 Pokemon is more overrated.
Although lucario has got one of the best combination of types (fighting and steel) it still doesn't make him a strong as most think. people mainly judge him on his appearance all because he looks great and judging a book by its cover is gonna ruin your day in Pokemon. now I play modded games like pixelmon which adds Pokemon to the game. and recently with the new updates all you ever hear about is lucario and how its gonna make the game 10x better. I'm sorry but people need to calm down about lucario its actually starting to make me feel bitter towards him. :i
It's overrated. Trying to defend is worthless.
Trying to defend it is worthless if your reasoning behind it is that "People hate it for reasons unrelated to the canon! That's wrong! " You're explaining why people dislike it, not why it's overrated. In fact, you're only adding to reasoning as to why it's overrated by saying no one actually dislikes it for what it is.
Looking at something based on the fandom isn't all about how the internet makes things gross. It's also about why it really matters.
People into Pokephilia should acknowledge that Gardevoir can be a man. Although I do prefer catching a female Ralts, I do respect anyone who prefer male ones. The reason for Gardevoir for being treated as a female because it's appearance is based on some Japanese figurine. It's hair is based on a bobcut which it's not usually shown on men. The skirt part is most obvious indicator that fans treated as female. There are other feminine looking Pokemon that are also on 50:50 sex ratio.
I don't hate this Pokemon. In fact I love it. But that love will be judged negatively because I'm a guy! I hate that Gardevoir's name has been poisoned by horny, perverted men!
Gardevoir is my favourite Pokemon, and NOT BECAUSE OF THE FANART. Gardevoir is a good Pokemon by itself, and with its mega. The day Ruby and Sapphire came out, I bet most people decided to raise a Ralts. Nothing bad with that, right? Well, perverted men shouldn't. When fans saw Gardevoir, their first thought was " it needs boobs and genitals". No. It doesn't. Gardevoir is an awesome Pokemon, but over shadowed by the fanart. The fandom made it overrated.
Only liked because "it's so strong", which I won't deny, but serously compared to other legendaries, Mewtwo has such a boring design. It's just a robotic cat with a huge dildo for tail. Rayquaza any day of the week over this one
... I understand that everyone thinks Mewtwo is a god, but they're right! This isn't overrated, in fact, it is underrated because many Pokemon fans say Mew is better! I mean, who wouldn't prefer Mew over Mewtwo as a companion, but when it comes to competitive battling, Mewtwo is SO much better! Has the second highest stat total in the game, and although it can't learn every move like mew, it CAN learn a hell of a lot of moves! It's hard to decide what moves to have on it when you could have Ice beam, Aura sphere, Psystrike, Thunderbolt, Shadowball, and many more. Mewtwo is the best Pokemon ever.
Seems like everyone loves Mewtwo but the only reasoning most people have is because he's the "original uber" and because he shared wisdom that was widely accepted already in the movies.
Competitively, he's really good. Of course that is also boring and the fact that he was originally a game-breaker is actually bad thing. I would say Charizard but it actually seems like everyone is turning on him instead.
Most just like him since he was the first legendary (Mew is in the mythic group). Sure, he's good for competitive, and he looks kind of cool, but the hype around this thing is unreal. A lot of people say Lucario is treated like a god, but the Mewtwo fans I've seen are just as bad. You know you have some nutty fans when people are screeching for and worshipping you because you were announced as a DLC character in a fighting game.
Okay I admit, I like Squirtle but YOU BET Blastoise is overrated!
First and foremost It's kinda unoriginal, since we already had a turtle in a different video game (Here is a hint: He was in Mario)
Second: If you're planning to use it only online battle, don't expect too much from It. Most of It's attacks (among them Earthquake what covers It's Electric weakness) are Physical but It's physical attack is really bad, not to mention It's incredibly slow, which is a bad news if you're up against Electric types, whose are famous for their Speed and even when it Mega Evolves It's Speed remains 78, meaning pretty much anything can outspeed It! Speaking of which, Mega Launcher might sounds cool, but you can't do too much with It. It powers up the pulse moves. So what? Someone sends out a Whimsicott what not just resists Water, Dark and Fighting moves (and immunes Dragon) but if It has Prankster ability (and there is no doubt It has) It can send the ugly, fat turtle packing ...more
To the guy at the top, blastoise IS overrated due to nostalgia people, isn't that great of a Pokemon, amphoras only has one good stat, 115 sp. Attack, but it sucks everywhere else, too many people like it, charizard has terrible defenses, stealth rock weaknesses, and is incredibly easy to check, pikachu isn't good, ash overrates it and game freak by making it the mascot, oshawot sucks, it is weak and only fan girls who never play like it, but I do agree on rayquaza not being overrated, and I do think melloata had some sort of rating due to it having forms, something that makes for a very overrated Pokemon.
Blastoise is a great Pokémon and one of my personal favorites. Also, it isn't unoriginal just for being a turtle. That's stupid. In that logic, Infernape is unoriginal too. Ever heard of Donkey Kong? Look at Amoongus. Ever heard of the Toads? Anyways, while Blastoise isn't that good against electric types, that's basically it. Just don't use it against electric types. Simple as that. I will agree that Blastoise is very popular and maybe even overrated, but there are many things about it that makes it more appealing. It looks better than Charizard in my humble opinion, but ignoring appearances, it has great defense, special attack and HP. Give it special moves like Hydro Pump, Flash Cannon, Ice Beam and Scald, and you can take a hit and dish it right back. Using these moves will make Blastoise a viable Pokemon and not anything that should be ignored, for it doesn't have enough popularity along with hate to make it #5.
WHAT THE HELL! Blastoise is awesome, it isn't overrated, this list is a piece of dog crap. Come on, Ampharos is a good electric type, Charizard was the first full evolved starter Ash got, Pikachu is the mascot, Oshawott gets a lot of hate, Typlosion is very fast for a starter, rayquaza is a very powerful legendary, no one is talking about froakie even, Scizor is just awesome, and Melotta only appeared in a few episodes!
Mewtwo (mega or not) is way better and Arceus and Giratina and Dialga and Palkia and Kyurem and LUgia and Darkrai and Xerneas and Yveltal and Genesect and Zekrom and Reshiram and Ho Oh and rayquaza (mega or not) and Groudon (Primal or not) and Kyogre (primal or not) and basically most of the legendaries
Why does everyone love this Pokemon? It's design is unoriginal and Arceus is constantly hated because no-one can admit that he's far superior to Mew in every way (also, why is it called Mew? Is it a cat or something? )
Mew is awesome, learning nearly every move and being perfectly balanced make him a valuable team member if you're ever lucky enough to get him.
Mew might be a little bit overrated. Sometimes, it seems like its put at the same level as arceus. Mew is good, but not great
Sorry but I think when people say this Pokemon is the greatest is either joking, will say it will evolve into a powerful beast that Magikarp isn't really loves fishes. When I played Pokemon Yellow when I was a kid it was a really useless Pokemon. Splash is just the same as Metapod's harden. Everyone who says that Magikarp is the greatest Pokemon ever should just shut up and just get a braincell and realise its just another Metapod.
Magi,arp is underrated because a lot of people think all it does is splash while it actually get tackle, flail, Bounce and hydro pump(event), it also has a 80 base speed(good for a non-fully evolved) and is able to ohko charizard after stealth rock damage.
252 SpA Magikarp Hydro Pump vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Charizard: 150-176 (50.5 - 59.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
People who say it is the best Pokemon doesn't really overrate magikarp, they r just joking which doesn't count as overrate.
Mohn from the PokePelago literally told me, "When Magikarp is trying to protect the Berries from Bug Pokemon, it sometimes ends up wreaking havoc on the field instead." Very fitting, considering it's scientifically proven that Magikarp is the creator of the Pokemon universe. Not Arceus, not Lord Helix, but Magikarp himself.
Magikarp is overrated and underrated. He's overrated because people joke around and say stuff like "I beat Mewtwo with Magikarp" or "Magikarp is the God of all Pokemon. He's also underrated because he evolves into Gyarardos.
Dragonite is my favorite Pokémon, but I do agree it IS overrated. The 11th most overrated, though? What the hell? Dragonite usually gets a lot of crap, and a lot of people think it's the worst pseudo legend, but it's actually pretty good in competitive play, just don't get it near an ice type, but that goes for pretty much all Dragon/Flying Pokémon, so why Dragonite in particular?
Also a last thing, One of the most popular reasons for hate on this thing is because it's derpy looking compared to it's pre-evolution...
... You have got to be kidding me.
I can one-shot Dragonite with Aurora Beam from a Suicune, and he doesn't even get STAB from Aurora Beam. Dragonite is very overrated, and the anime sorta proves it. After Iris catches that...um, unique...Dragonite, guess who the only Pokemon she uses in battle is? Can't really blame her though, Iris is a terrible trainer. Every one of her Pokemon besides Axew disobeyed her at one point. Come on. You couldn't have introduced a more pathetic trainer.
Dragonite isn't overrated, it's good. Aside from having the excellent type coverage that comes naturally as a dragon, it also has INSANE stats. My level 57 Dragonite (not specially EV trained) had 180/170 stats, with a 150 in speed. I hate the confusion on these lists beetween overrated and good.
I don't necessarily think Dragonite is overrated, but I love Dragonair's design so much that going from this ancient snake creature to a dopey looking Charizard is a little off putting. I always slap an ever stone on Dragonair.
Who the heck talks about Onix? Yes I admit Steelix is sorta overshadowed by him but in the Gen II games Steelix was pretty hard to get for he had to be traded with a Metal Coat. Honestly the only people I would think talk about Onix are Genwunners, and even they have "better" things to talk about... cough cough Mewtwo cough Charizard cough cough... Excuse me.
Lol onix overrated seriously? I never seen him on a favorite list, let alone a ground or rock favorite list. I think golem is more liked dispite having similar weaknesses. Seelix maybe (though I still wouldn't say he should be in the top 10). Defiantly NOT onix.
The only reason Onix is on here is because people who just started playing Pokemon and watched the gym leaders' Onix destroy things, then they test it out in showdown and find out it sucks
Onix is what you call a COPYCAT. Its one of those overrated Pokemon because its got the same type of noise and boring old shape but I like the rest of it
When I see the comment, I found I lot of people saying it is not overrated. Well, I would say it is actually. Don't get me wrong, I know it is very very good and strong, but still overrated. It has 150 attack and special, yes that's good, but why do u need both high attack and special attack, it could have spend one of them to something more useful like speed or defensive stat. Now it has a mediocre speed of 95(bad as a legendary), and 105/90/90 defensive stats, the defensive stat isn't that bad but bad for a Pokemon with 680 total stats. It has four weakness, one of them is a four times weakness and one of them is to stealth rock. Air lock usually isn't useful... And in some top ten lists, people say rayquaza is good because "its hyper beam kills everything". What the heck, do u run hyper beam for rayquaza, if u do, u r probably a noob. If u want to Ohko the opponent, there is Draco meteor, outrage and dragon ascent, they all deal more damage after stab. Out of all the choices why ...more
Wow. Honestly Rayquaza Is non overrated. Rayquaza is a beast for competitive play and I also see people in real life talk about now he is underrated and its true. This 'Rayquaza is Overrated' think is so dumb. Teach your Rayquaza Ice beam. Beats All Dragon types. You name it. My Rayquaza has amazing base stats without Iron, Zinc, Calcium, and HP Up. Or honestly any of them. Rayquaza is my Favourite Pokemon and Rayquaza will take over competitive play because of me. I haven't lost in 2 weeks of competitive play ever since I got Rayquaza in ORAS. Ice Beam, Swords Dance, Dragon Pulse and My best move, Fly. It's easy man just think about it and do not act dumb. If you do not like that move set. Try my Favourite. Ice Beam, Fire Blast, Seismic Toss and Draco Meteor. That's Ice, Ground, Rock, Dark, Dragon, Grass, Steel, Fairy, Flying and Bug. That's 10 whole type Advantages.
The fact that you guys aren't even voting for overrated Pokemon these are just Pokemon that everyone loves. Come on get original have you SEEN a top 10 most overrated Pokemon list WITHOUT charizard on it? Lucario is great in the competitive game so I have no idea what you are talking aboutmbecauseni have won many games with lucario in my team, raquaza is amazing even if he does has crap defenses most Pokemon who get a hit from him will probably already be at low health and SCIZOR?! He is my favorite Pokemon ever and why complain about his speed stat give him a choice band with technician and bullet punch and he can be one of the best sweepers in the game! You guys have no idea what you are talking about
Rayquaza is one of the most, if not, the most overrated Legendary. The only ones that would probably have more popularity than Rayqyaza are Mew and Mewtwo. Yes, it's a strong Pokemon, but Rayquaza is still overrated. You hear so much talk about how good he is when (even though he is good) he's not as good as the "stories" he's told in is. He's overrated because too many people pay too much attention to him. "It's because he's strong! "
I've never own a Rayquaza and just last year he used to be my favorite because of his amazing design. And that's also what a lot of Pokefans are doing today.
Yeah, he looks cool and is strong, but people still pay too much attention to him. More attention need to spread out to other Pokemon (that are underrated).
Well what do we get here, he is probably the most overrated in my heart, and off course its bond fusion kills anything. A true ash-greninja fan
Oh lord, oh lord. Greninja is a DECENT Pokemon, with decent design, decent stats, decent etc. Just LIKE ANY OTHER STARTER. Why is this thing so overrated? I can't go on the Battle Colosseum without finding FIVE Greninjas using dark pulse on my ghosts. I still was upset that Dragons are overrated as hell, but at least they're all different like Salamence, Garchomp and Flygon. They're overpowered, but they aren't the same thing like a water-dark type. I'm not mad because it's a dark type and it KOs my ghosts, I'm mad because there's no reason to make this overrated when it's just a typical starter Nintendo adds every new Generation. Just wanted to keep this short, I still have a 900 page novel in my head about this.
I hate Greninja, he sucks and is a stupid jerk. I wanna cut off his annoying fat old tongue and grind it up and deep fry it and incinerate this stupid, overrated Pokemon who doesn't deserve to be one. He looks so dumb, he looks like "oh I'm so cool and awesome I'm the best I deserve to rule the world" NO YOU DO NOT STUPID DUMB GRENINJA I CANNOT EXPRESS MY HATE FOR YOU IN WORDS I HOPE YOU'RE TONGUE GETS CUT OFF YOU GET BURNED EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE A WATER TYPE AND BLOWN UP AND GET DISSECTED ALIVE IN A SCIENCE LAB! Whatever stupid jerks like him and comments some hate on this you're got diarrhea of the mouth; constipation of the ideas, too bad, I don't care LOL, and DIE GRENINJA YOU SUCK SO MUCH I HATE YOU SO MUCH I LAUGH AT YOU WANTING TO BE A "Pokemon" YOU AIN'T A Pokemon YOU ARE A STUPID POKEYMAN LOLOLOLOLOOLLOLOLOL
Oh my god Greninja. Where do I even start? Well, here goes.
Greninja is treated like god because it got a form called Ash-Greninja, and because he looked cool to many people. I personally think it DOESN'T look THAT cool. And the shiny. Everyone just goes on and on about useless crap about the shiny. "It's so cool! " "The black makes it look like a real ninja! " Yea, okay. I give you points for that last one. It does look like a ninja, but Greninja isn't even THAT strong. 103 special attack? Please. You call that "EXTREMELY" strong? They hate Delphox because they think Greninja is badass and go like "Delphox's ear hair looks ugly and it's bipedal! I hate the fact that it's bipedal! " Greninja is bipedal too, ffs. "The toes on it look ugly! " Have you seen Greninja's toes? And the tongue too, oh my god that tounge as a scarf DOES NOT work for me. Greninja lovers should get out from underneath the rock they live and realize how overrated it is. It was Japan's most popular Pokemon, ...more
LISTEN! For a while Ampharos WAS underrated, but now it is! I hate most underrated pokemon videos because it is ALWAYS Ampharos! I mean he was underrated FOR A WHILE but now he is should be right up there with Charizard! Everyone always says how GOOd and underrated he is, but he gets a LOT more attention then he should!
Hardly anybody talks about ampharos which is why it got a mega evolution. That is why pokemon has gone lame over the years because all I hear is pika pika or actually eevee and neither of their evolutions/eeveelutions have mega evolve.So that is why nearly all pokemon are under appreciated.GOD ok ANYBODY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND POKEMON LIFE READ THIS PARAGRAPH NOW because I JUST GAVE YOU FULL DEFINITION
People say it is the strongest electric type, but it isn't... 55 speed is terrible and 90/85/90 bulk isn't great, as a bulky attacker, it lacks a recovery. The only good thing about it is 115 special attack, nothing else.
The reason why I choose ampharos because this pokemon is not only strong it can mega evolve then when it mega evolve its powers grow say #Ampharosisstrong if you agree with me
How exactly is arceus overrated? How many arceus fans are there? There are very few. Yes it is constantly talked about, but only about how people hate it and how they are complaining about how it is overrated! Mew fans hate him because it took mews place as god. NEWS FLASH! Mew created Pokemon Arceus made the world inhabitable. They are two completely different things. If anything this Pokemon is the pure definition of underrated. Gamefreak never said it was god the fans just created a theory about how he is god, while it makes sense Arceus did not create life, he made the world inhabitable for MEWS creations. If that does not make it through to your thick skulls I don't know what will.
While Gen IV seemed sort of dull altogether, I absolutely LOVED the idea of Pokemon deities of time, space, and dark matter, and to top it all off a supreme ruler: the Alpha Pokemon Arceus. A lot of the Pokemon in Sinnoh seemed either off, or dull and sort of black and white to me, but it is still one of my favorite gens! It gets so little love because people think it completely ripped off the creation story of Mew. COME ON PEOPLE! Grow up. If they say there is a Pokemon that created the world, he created the world. Pokefact! Genwunners hate on Arceus because "he replaced Mewtwo" or "he's a fake! Mew is the god of Pokey Mans! " This guy could beat Mewtwo effortlessly so stop treating Mewtwo like a god because he's just another legendary with a cool backstory!
Oh, dear lord. I can't take this anymore. People, 'mons like Arceus and Mewtwo are NOT overrated. They're good. First off, since Arceus can change its type and Judgement's type (for STAB) it is incredibly useful for beating the Elite 4. Secondly, Electric Arceus with Calm Mind, Recover, Judgement, and Ice Beam can take out pretty much anything. Now, on Mewtwo. It has the HIGHEST STATS IN THE GAME. Can't anyone get that through their head? There is a fine line beetween good and overrated.
It is overrated. On the top ten fire types: In the top ten: Arceus. In every list on this site: Arceus Arceus Arceus. I was even rampaged by arceus fans for voting slowking on best top 10 water types. Arceus is overrated! Why arceus! It should be in 1 and mew is not overrated, actually hated, because mewtwo is 'more powerful' or 'has a mega evolution'. Thank god there is no mega arceus, or I would blow up after seeing 'so and so sent out arceus! '
Honestly, I can agree eevee is a LITTLE overrated, but umbreon? Okay, okay, STOP. This list can burn. They put so many underrated pokemon on this list. all the underrated pokemon on this list:
-Sylveon (Kay, must agree she is a little little overrated too)
Oh my. That's a LOT. please show some mercy to these pokemon.
Somebody said it is the least useful eeveelutions... Really? At least explain why. It has a great defensive stats of 90/110/130 it has foul play to cover up for its offense, it can support using wish and heal bell. That somebody even said it has an obvious disadvantage against steel, what? Do you play gen6? Steel no longer resist dark and plus if a Pokemon resist your attack count as disadvantage, then every Pokemon has a disadvantage against a type include electross family. In fact, unbreon is actually a pretty good Pokemon and second best eeveelution in battles in my oponion.
It has crap attacking stats because it's A WALL! A good one at that, he doesn't look like he can take a hit, but guess what? 90/110/130 defenses! Those are simply amazing! It gets foul play, and that makes anything hit hard, it gets moonlight, so restoration is a go, it gets heal bell, so status problems are a joke, wish along with its high bp for great sweeper heals, curse b pass too, if you feel like trick rooming a gyro baller, so much great wall sets, so much idiots.
Umbreon is the most overrated eevee. Just because it's the dark type all the people are screaming how cool it is and overshadowing espeon. So it's a wall, crap attack so if it ended up someone roaring it and sending it crying back and the 2nd to last Pokemon faints that Umbreon is screwed. I prefer Vaporeon and I wish it would get more attention. Mine could take hits and knock out a couple of pokes on the way.
Why exactly is Absol on this list? I don't necessarily find it overused or overrated at all. I think it gets the exact amount of praise it deserves, and its Mega Evolution was actually something it most likely needed. I for one really like Absol, and I don't see it talked about nearly the same amount as, say, Pikachu, Charizard, Eevee or Lucario.
I get one of these dudes for every playthrough of my X game- I find Absol very fun, and I think it's design is really neat! I've gotten attached to this pokemon overtime, this is mainly my opinion though ahah-
Absol's mega form is a bit overrated, but his normal form isn't. Without the wings, everyone thinks he's "ugly" or "a disaster creator" or whatever.
Honestly I think absol is overrated, I'm sorry but I just can't help myself for loving it's mega evolution it has WINGS.
People mostly love it because it's cute. Yes, It's evolved forms are beast and they look cool and all but this is mainly picked because of cuteness.
Why is everyone trying so hard to say that this pokémon is underrated? It's much more popular than all the other starters of Unova and their evolutions combined. And every time I see a new art of Oshawott popping up, it get's easily hundreds of favorites/likes. Snivy by the other hand, barely get's any love. And Serperior is a victim to the infamous vore art. Again, everyone loves it because it's so cute and this makes it overrated for me. Snivy is underrated and get's a lot of hate thanks to an outdated meme.
I completely agree with this. Practically EVERYONE thinks he is the best gen 5 starter Pokemon. People only like him because he's cute and he's a 'ninja' when he evolves. I personally think the other two starters are much better than it, also, froakie and its evolutions do the idea of a ninja Pokemon much better.
One of the things that piss me off is people who say Oshawott is the main choice for male players. Actually, looking at the manga, Tepig is the main choice. Plus, Oshawott is going to get creamed by Elesa, so if you want some help there, either grind a sandile, or maybe choose a different starter, since I beated elesa only with my Tepig.
It's overrated because of a dumb meme and my cousin only started to love it because because of 'the meme' and swampert is pretty strong but mudkip gets more love than normal. It's just like any other starter:
Is cute in its 1st form
Has a awesome evolution that's pretty strong.
So why does so many other starters get hate?
Torchic is the adorable one that evolves into the original Fire/Fighting powerhouse, Treecko is the swag one that evolves into an epic Grass type beast that gains Dragon type when it Mega Evolves...
Mudkip is the derpy one that evolves into another Water/Ground bulk. But apparently people like that? I don't know. I don't have too much against Mudkip, but it's only popular because of some stupid meme on DeviantArt...(I personally chose Torchic. =3)
Ugh, Mudkip. Honestly I prefer Blaziken or Mega Sceptile, but I don't hate Mudkip because I like the other two more! I hate him because of that stupid stupid meme!
For an average starter between the three given to us in Hoenn, it merely gained its popularity from that redundant meme from 4chan, which in itself is very stupid.
WHAT IS THIS LIST?!
Rather than voting for the ever so overrated charizard, you people voted for typhlosion, the underappreciated second to charizard.
How much money to you want to bet that every single person who voted this were people who were either trying to comment on how stupid this thing being on this list is or just being salty because Charizard was number one and wanting to bash the next fire starter?
Everyone who voted here should have hands down voted for charizard. This thing has been way too overhyped by not only the fanbase, but also the creators of the series. 2 megas, pokken, AND SMASH BROS! FOR GODS SAKE, JUST VOTE FOR CHARIZARD!
Wow. The one who chose typhlosion was 100% a genwunner. Typhlosion is a better alternative to charizard. They have (really) same stats but they are things that make Typhlosion better. First it is pure fire. So he isn't half-killed by stealth rock. Second it learns the strongest special fire type move: Eruption. If Typhlosion is at full health (use it as a lead) eruption will have 150 power. Throw a choice specs on this thing and it will do MASSIVE damage to every pokemon that doesn't quad-resist it.
Listen, Y'all. I'm also questioning why Typhlosion is even on here. But now you guys are only just bashing on Charizard, who is at the TOP OF THE LIST. I think everybody knows how overrated Charizard is, but you don't have to get all salty because a few people simply had a different opinion. Charizard is one of the most iconic Pokemon of all time, so it makes sense to be in Pokken and Smash. Two megas is a little unfair, but it's no reason to get all salty about the 1% of people who voted for Typhlosion.
Don't assume that the person who put this here was a genwunner. There's a chance that the person who put it here actually thought it was overrated, and didn't just hate on it because it wasn't Charizard. Also, if you think about, Cyndaquil is pretty used a lot as well like Charmander. Not saying Typhlosion is bad at all, I have one, but it is used a lot more than the other starters.
This should be in top 10 because Pichu is also probably in the top 10 weakest Pokemon. Also just like Eevee and Pikachu cute means extremely overrated. That's why my friend's favorite Pokemon is Pichu. Wait, and I'm not done. He evolve into Pikachu, the most overrated Pokemon in history. And last, but not least, Pichu was never meant to be a real Pokemon. That's why they don't make Pichu cards anymore and why Pichu and Pikachu are both basic.
Pichu is not one of the 150 original Pokémon. He was made for popularity. As fans grew older, they lost interest because Ash would never evolve Pikachu. Then they realized that cute Pokémon were popular no matter how weak they were. So they had an idea, they made a Pokémon who evolved into Pikachu, the Pokémon mascot. It worked for a while, but sadly, this was at the end of the era when popularity was based on cuteness and who was in the show. Pokémon cards made people realize that many Pokémon they thought were powerful are not. Now, Pichu cards are rare because the developers stopped making them. Luckily for them, there are some loyal Pikachu/Pichu fans that still like him. Then the developers created Pokémon like Arceus and Zeckrom who are powerful. That plan went well and Pokémon is gaining popularity fast.
So cute! 111! Ok seriously, can we pretend Pichu doesn't exist? You have no reason not to evolve it into Raichu, and it overall just looks like a small Pikachu with spiky ears. And other Gen 2 mons, like Chikorita and Mareep, are much cuter and stronger, especially when you evolve them.
Pichu isn't one of the original 150 Pokemon. He was made for popularity at the late part of the era when cute Pokemon were way more popular than they are now. Now, the developers plan is failing i
Gyarados sucks. Simply put any electric attack will kill it. None of that "oh but it can have earthquake" that's crap. Any electric attack will kill it STAB or not. It can be easily out sped too and jolly gyarados cannot out speed a jolteon. If you think it can then you have never actually looked at the stats or tried it out and are helplessly looking for excuses to keep him of the list. His mega doesn't even help him giving him 3 additional weakness and only 2 extra type coverings. Gyarados has some good special defense but being its only special weakness is 4x effective to it, its worthless. Gyarados is an overrated Pokemon guarded by his nostalgia sheild. I started in gen 1 too so don't say I wouldn't know because I started later
Ok, for anybody who is saying Gyarados dies in one hit from Lightning not everyone has the courtesy to run an Electric type on their team. Plus, only 3 moves that are Electric are actually viable in game. Plus most Water and/ or Flying types will die in one hit from an Electric attack like Thunderbolt, so what's the difference that's going to be made?
Does Ferrothorn suck for its 4x Fire weakness? Does Dragonite for its 4x Ice weakness? The fact that the only argument people can make is that "4x lightning weakness' is completely annoying.
And at least it's immune to Spikes, can fight back well against Grass types and has an Ability in Intimidate which works much better than Abilities like Torrent and Rain Dish
This Pokemon isn't really overrated. Sure, it has a four times weakness, does that mean it is bad? No. U can't say rayquaza is bad because four times weakness to ice, u can't say ho-oh is bad because it has a four times weakness to rock, u can't say genesect is bad because a four times weakness to fire, etc. This thing has ddance, nice coverage like eq and ice fang, high attack of 125. Somebody said all its good attacks r special based... What? Waterfall and aqua tail, r they special based? What about eq and ice fang? And u still think hyper beam is a good move... Then u might put Giga impact in here as well. Gyrados also has intimidate and hidden ability moxie, which are both great. But yeah, some people are actually overrating, it shouldn't be 11 or 10 in the top ten non legendary Pokemon list, but it is not that bad.
Memes are everywhere about magikarp such as a magikarp saying "When I evolve, not even Arceus can stop me! " or
Something like that. It's design makes it look like a Pokemon that could one hit almost anything. Even back in gen 1 gyarados was bad! They tried to make it good by giving it a mega evolution, but it's stats were so bad not even mega evolution could save it! I get really annoyed when people talk about how good gyarados is and I think it should have a higher place on this list.
Oh God, Sylveon is the epitome of trying too hard. Flesh ribbons? Seriously? Gigantic blue eyes and pink fur? FLESH BUTTERFLY BOWIE? It has none of the subtle cuteness we see in pokémon like Flareon or Leafeon, it's just diabetes. A disgusting, sugar laden pink frosted creme filled doughnut that will give you instant diabetes on contact. Not to mention it's literally called a FAIRY, meaning it's trying EXTRA hard to be cute, which is totally un-cute. And what does it evolve with? THE POWER OF LOVE. Wow, real original, not like a very similar concept was introduced with the two more competent eeveelutions in gen 3-- not to mention, again, it's being a complete Tryhard. God, Sylveon, do us all a favor and amputate the ribbons; you don't need frills and crud to be an acceptable eeveelution.
I like Sylveon. Most sylveon haters ARE espeonXumbreon shippers. Which is kinda disturbing that you would ship pokemon. It's like shipping two races. You're not shipping two characters with personal feelings and nature, but TWO GROUPS. This race may have a person who falls in love with another race then what you ship them with. Please get a hobby and stop 'shipping' pokemon. You can write a love story between them, but STOP SHIPPING THEM. That's just wrong.
I actually like Sylveon. I do agree that it's kinda overrated, and that's probably because of it's appearance, but it really is quite pretty. It's also a machine. Have a Sylveon with max level and the right moveset, and it can obliterate many dragon, dark, or fighting types. In my opinion, this is one of the strongest fairy types out there.
OTT, much? I mean, take a look at say, Swirlix. Its got a very simple design, yet looks very cute and can be apprectiated by both genders. Sylveon is just the exact opposite. OTT design, yet looks kinda ugly and can only really be liked by girls. And even then, I'm a girl and find this Pokemon unapealling!
His stats aren't the best. He's a good mon, but he's the SECOND MOST POPULAR just for being in Team Rocket.
Meowth is definitely underrated compared to Charizard Pikachu and Eevee
Meowtg is dumb! The worst! He can't even beat the weakest Pokemon! Not even a poor little chespin!
I hate this Pokemon and that's for the whole species in general!
I don't even know what to say here
It gets more attention than it deserves
Are people saying it's overrated and doesn't deserve any attention?
Nobody even uses him (although, it's for good reasons, on account of its poor ability)
Regigigas is not overrated. He knows mega buster
Not overrated or underrated. Good stats and moveset, horrible ability.
