Top 10 Most Overrated Pokemon
Charizard has a cool design and does look very cool. But there are plenty of Fire types that are way cooler. Game Freak loves to shove Charizard down your throat.
I see a tier list putting Charizard in S, just cause its Charizard, but for me it's a B, a strong B, but a B nontheless.
I can see why some would love cause of the Anime, but sometimes that's a little suprising because after Ash's Charmander evolved it did not listen to him and was just laying around like a lazy lizard which got annoying, very annoying. To the point I literally questioned why he did not release it.
Charizard so belongs on this list. It's nothing much and yet I find it in almost every list of the most popular Pokémon! I just want to walk up to it and say, " Dude, you're so overrated and people should create a better final evolution for Charmander than you."
Charizard. Why is this thing popular again? In the games where it can be chosen as a starter, it's weak to the first two gyms, and yet it was still chosen the most - compare that to Bulbasaur, the least chosen, who doesn't have a weakness until the sixth gym. And somehow, Charizard is the one who most players chose. Pikachu may be Ash's starter in the anime, but the developers treated it as if he had picked Charmander at times, most notably during the Silver Conference battle against Gary; if you watch the episode, you'll notice that Ash doesn't ever use Pikachu during the battle. The final conflict comes down to Charizard vs. Blastoise. Sound familiar? It's very similar to the Champion Battle against your rival in the first generation. Charizard got two megas as well. The only other Pokemon to do so was Mewtwo, a LEGENDARY. Then there's Smash; Charizard made it to SSB4 as a solo character, while Squirtle and Ivysaur were cut. As someone who usually skipped Charizard in Brawl, I find ...more
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.
Annoying yellow rodent is created to shill that Ash ketchup in the anime.
And beating Megas just because he is the protagonist's ace.
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.
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.
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.
Oh, man. Where do I begin with Eevee? Just go to Amazon and search up "Pokemon plush" I dare you! Over half the stuff will be (mostly bootlegged) Eeveelution merchandise! These guys are way too gimmicky and I bet that if Pikachu wasn't Ash's partner and therefore the Pokemon mascot, Eevee would step into the spotlight in a heartbeat! These guys are everywhere and come on people! There are more Mons out there than just Pikachu, Eevee and its gimmicky evolutions!
Who's the cutest Pokemon? "EEVEE! " Who gets to appear in almost every episode? "EEVEE! " Who gets a Z-Move? "EEVEE! " Who gets a whole game even though he isn't even a mascot? "EEVEE! " Who gets too many ugly evolutions? "EEVEE! " Who is the mon every girl couldn't shut up about? "EEVEE! " Who is the best normal type Pokémon? "EEVEE! " Who is the mon that can beat Pikachu in popularity? "EEVEE! " Seriously, when can people shut up about Eevee? I'm getting tired of seeing them on every positive list when Joltik is clearly cuter than this overrated fox.
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.
I don't know about Lucario at all. I just know it has a mega evolution, yes, terrible design. And it's fighting and steel. It's so overrated. The design isn't that bad, but again, the mega evolution is terrible in my opinion. I never had a Lucario or a Riolu ever. I'm fine with Absol (Absol is overrated, I hate that, but I don't hype about it), Primarina, which is an incredible water-fairy type pokemon, Ampharos, an amazing Pokemon, and Luxray. To be honest, Luxray has better design. Just had to get it out.
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.
Stop making all these abominations of gardevoir!
I like gardevoir but what I don't like is the fact that when I one day search up gardevoir... I go control w because everyone is making fun of her. Just because she is mainly female does not mean you should do all these inappropriate things. Even gallade is not half as bad but you just had to ruin my favorite pokemon. R.I.P Searched up gardevoir.
They only use it like a joke, a sexual pokemon, that always have to be female, but can be male too. Like many pokemon, they add breasts, it's insane that a real fan could do this to a poor creature, and don't forget popular fetishes, they only make this pokemon fat, or just make things that it will never do like swallow someone. But in another part, there is good fanart of it.
... 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.
Mewtwo is so overrated. Everyone loves this thing and it's design, but I don't see anything THAT impressive about it. It got it's own movie and everything, and everyone says it's the strongest Pokemon ever. Sure, it's strong, but I think there ARE stronger Pokemon. It got TWO mega evolutions, yes, but just because it gets two mega evolutions doesn't make it any stronger, and the mega evolutions look pretty weird to me.
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
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!
It is actually very overrated and what the guy at the top is saying does not make the Pokemon here any less overrated like how he said pikachu is the mascot that is the main reason pikachu is overrated, The thing he said about charizard means nothing. Yes I do think scizor is awesome but he is still overrated.
Look Greninja is only popular cause the anime. It gets a cool new form and is Ash's ace in Kalos. But for me, while cool, is def one of the weaker looking starters of them all.
People think it's so strong just because it has protein. Protein lets it turn into whatever type move it uses. While that might sound cool at first, then you see that it's hard for Greninja to take a hit, so even not-very-effective attacks can leave a big dent in it. Also, Delphox's defense stat may be only a little higher than Greninja's, but it has the best special Defense stat of the three. Also, due to Greninja's terrible defense, it isn't as good of a troll as Delphox. While Delphox steals your items and uses them against you, Greninja prefers to medal around with its typing, taking hits that quickly dwindle him down to fainting. All in all, Delphox is WAY better than Greninja.
People act as if Greninja is the best starter ever. I beat some in competitive online battles with a Delphox and it's supposed to be weak against Greninja. And every time I beat a Greninja with Delphox people expect rematches and that I HAVE to use Delphox. People, can't you use something else for once? Repetitive battles gets boring after a while, I want challenge. I actually had a challenging battle yesterday and while I lost it was the most fun for a long while, it taught me new things. While they used a Greninja they didn't force me to use Delphox on it.
Come on man! Seriously, people just don't shut up about how awesome this thing is. What so awesome about this thing anyway? It is literally a frog whose tongue is sticking out. Imagine a lot of saliva dropping down from its tongue. It's cry is literally like grrgr! The most terrible cry ever. Not from looks, even in competive battles this thing is annoying. Sweeps your whole team with it's 122 base speed. Talking of Ash-Greninja, it is just a ability made for decoration. It just powers up water shuriken. People who had never played SM, thinks only ash's Greninja can only do this. Any Greninja can do this, just faint your opponent's Pokemon, then it automatically activates. Greninja is the combination of two things:
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.
She isn't overrated and she is good too and everyone likes mew because she is good. Does that make sense.
At first I thought Mew was ok, but I'm kind of getting sick of Mew. Mew is a pink blob cat. Whatever. Who cares.
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.
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.
Magikarp is far from being the most overrated Pokèmon (altough it IS somewhat overrated) but one thing I have to say about it is that people don't think it's weak because it evolves into Gyarados. That only means Magikarp isn't worthless, it's still one of the weakest creatures in fiction
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 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.
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.
People just think Onix is good cause he got to battle, travel, talk, eat and practically live with Pikachu. Where is Steelix?
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
Ok, just because he is big doesn't mean a damn thing. 4x weak against grass, water and ice. Any Rock/Ground type will get rekt by almost anything. Rhydon can join along with Onix!
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.
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).
Rayquaza is NOT overrated. It is as strong as the fans and stories say it is. Come on, look at that speed, attacks, moves. This is not overrated. It can destroy the world if it wanted to. Everyone's gotta admit it DOES have a lot of flaws like the fact that dragon ascent lowers the attack power, and it has no teeth. But the it is still very powerful. It can probably win over all the Pokemon on the UNDERrated and OVERrated list with just a few dragon dances and a dragon ascent. And hey, those aren't even it's big guns.
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
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!
How the hell is Ampharos overrated? If anything, he's under appreciated.
What is Ampharos doing here? He is awesome and strong! My second favorite Pokemon behind Empoleon.
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.
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.
Come on he is the most powerful pokemon ever he is the coolest and rarest he is the creator of the pokemon universe he is a god come on are you out of your minds.
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!
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! '
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Overrated? So what? This magnificent Pokémon is still one of my favorites, overrated or not. And how could it be ugly? This is the embodiment of majesty and grace, people, can't you see that? So apparently it's got "bad stats"? Ever heard of "leveling up", knuckle-heads?
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.
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-
Oshawott is just plain sucky. This is my least favourite Unova region starter Pokémon. There are two terrible Oshawotts in the show. One is arrogant and one is a coward. Oshawott sucks.
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.
SURE oshawott gets hate because of the ONE oshawott from the T.V. show, THAT
Oshawott is waird and crappy, but the game, he is best! I'm going for a oshawott sweap and I bet he would win, oshawot isn't just my favorite starter, he is my favorite Pokemon! I don't care if he is over rated! I LOVE HIM! Also, oshwott get hate from that ONE Pokemon show, but remember
ALL of the new Pokemon shows are crappy, gen 5 and 6, talking about you!
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.
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.
Love this thing, when I was 8 years old I won the heartgold game by sweeping with a Typhlosion that finished on level 90. I barely invested in the rest of my team (next best was level 68 crobat and level 66 dragonite). Obviously by strategy was atrocious back then but Typhlosion made it somewhat sucsessful in beating the game. Overall this pokemon is not overrated with pretty good well rounded stats but it's job can be done better with other special attackers like Houndoom and Delphox.
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!
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.
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
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
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.
Gyarados is overrated as heck. If you want an honest sum-up for it... Here goes... Gyarados is a glass cannon with a load out full of generic and overrated moves (looking at you, Hyper Beam...). If Gyarados fought Milotic, we all know who would win... Milotic has the most overpowered move ever... Coil. Coil raises attack and defense. Ultimately, you can turn Milotic into a super-tank, while Gyarados... Well...
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.
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
No. Pichu is adorable, is never praised for being good IN-BATTLE, and is never acknowledge compared to Pikachu.
This... THING sickens me. You took Eevee, a perfectly good Pokémon, and drowned it in super girly kawaii pink ribbons and bows and all that cringe. And you got this monstrosity. Sylveon is just good for weakening dragons but that's IT. I honestly think that a Flying, Normal, or Ground Eeveelution, or even a Fighting type, would be better than this. If there were Pokémon "Mary Sues", this would be the worst of them. It's shiny form is so uncreative as well, I mean you just switched the colors! It's hard to think that people actually LIKE this thing. Arceus bless those poor souls, guide them away from this evil.
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.
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 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?
Regigigas is not overrated. He knows mega buster
Not overrated or underrated. Good stats and moveset, horrible ability.
It's not overrated, it's underrated!
Meowth is NOT overrated I mean he's overrated with hate just because people wanna point fingers at team Rocket just. because they fool idietary Ash. Yeah I'm going to state my opinion so he joined Team Rocket because he was upset and angry. Plus MEOWZIE is more overrated then him just because she's female! She REJECTED home not once but TWICE and his character has changed since the older episodes and you can blame THAT on the creators who RUINED Japan's PERFECT show! So if you wanna point fingers at HIM for bad traits I bet YOU have done more bad things than him! (If u don't agree)
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!
Listen to me please meowth is not overrated people hate him. I love meowth he's adorable
