Top 10 Most Useless Pokémon

The Top Ten
1 Unown Unown is a Psychic type Pokémon from the Johto region, taking on the form of letters and punctuation. It is often considered the weakest Pokémon, with low stats and access to only one move, Hidden Power (which can be learnt by nearly every Pokémon anyway)

Not only can this thing not evolve. Not only does this thing have one of the lowest base stat totals of any fully evolved Pokémon. Not only is it gimmicky and dumb, but it can only know one move. Hidden power, a move every Pokemon that can learn TM's can learn. At least Magikarp can learn 4 moves: splash (useless), tackle, flail and bounce. Magikarp also evolves into Gyarados, which is a beast. Unown is terrible. DON'T EVEN BOTHER!

Assuming Hidden Power is a Normal type attack, Unown has crappy stats and only one move that doesn't get STAB if once again, Hidden Power is assumed to be Normal type. Also note that his Hidden Power lowers his IVs, and it only gets a maximum power of 70. Compare that to stuff like Psystrike coming of 154 Special Attack and STAB. This guy is of no help without Baton Pass.

2 Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves... read more

Magikarp isn't ENTIRELY useless, I know it's such a hassle and irritation to train Magikarp and to level them up and train them, but eventually they do evolve into Gyarados.

I think Magikarp is the worst Pokemon in the game. It only has one move and takes forever to evolve. Some people say its only good because of its evolution.

He can't beating giratina with splash, but her's awesome strong 40 move is then quick attack, remember: flail is strong if only pokemon was started with G.

3 Metapod Metapod, known in Japan as Transel, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

In a Pokemon world far away... in the middle of a battle...
Kristy the trainer: Caterpie! Use Bug Bite on Espeon!
Caterpie: Cat- ter- pie!
Sandy the watcher: Bug types are super effective against Psychic types!
Dan the opponent: AH DANG IT! Espeon, use Psychic.
Espeon: Espi!
Kristy: Dodge it! Flick it back with string shot!
Caterpie: Caterpie!
Espeon:*faints* Espi!
Sandy: Caterpie is the winner of this battle!
Dan: Espeon, come back. You did your best. Now, Riolu come out and use
Kristy: Caterpie! Dodge it and use tackle!
Caterpie: Caterpiee!
Riolu: Riol
Now Caterpie is evolving.
Kristy: Caterpie?
Metapod: Metapod!
Dan in head: Oh, this is my chance.
Sandy in head: Uh oh!
Kristy in head: One more shot, and I'll beat him.
Kristy: Metapod, use bug bite!
Metapod: Meta?
Kristy: Hold on, let me see the Poke'dex. It says here that Metapod can only use Harden, a very weak move, then it evolves into Butterfree.
Kristy in head: I only have this Pokemon left. Dan has to defeat me.
Kristy: Dan! You win! Defeat me!
Dan defeats her!
Dan: Oh yeah! Victory baby!

4 Miltank Miltank, known in Japan as ミルタンク, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was introduced in Generation II of the series and is a female only species categorized as the Milk Cow Pokémon. It is a Normal type Pokémon... read more

Why have miltank when you could just have tauros?

5 Luvdisc Luvdisc, known in Japan as Lovecus, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's useless now but it used to be the only way to obtain heart scales.

6 Ditto Ditto, known in Japan as Metamon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

If we were to talk about the slime ditto thing ya it's the weakest

7 Delibird

"Imagine a sword so bad it healed the enemy every time it hit the enemy. It would still make a ghast cry." - Max, Diary of an 8-bit Warrior.
Why does Pokémon have a Pokémon that has a chance of healing the enemy?
The first time I learned about that move, I actually just quit the game for a few days.

He is useless on your side, but if the enemy has him, chances are some HP is coming your way... And that is why I battle him in SoulSilver.

He has an attack that has 1 over 10 chances of HEALING the enemy. That's bad.

8 Smeargle

Its only real use is to set up hazards and to use spore, which doesn't even work on Grass-types.

HOWEVER! There is a set I use in Ubers where I spore the opponent, use Substitute, then Belly Drum, then Baton Pass to a physical sweeper.

Like come on! Do you really want a Pokèmon that just draws the opponent? No. And it's even worse than a Magikarp since it can't evolve into anything. Worst Pokemon out there.

Rubbish character. Takes up space.

9 Weedle Weedle, known in Japan as Beedle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Does no damage... Literally everywhere. Horrible evolutions. Piece of crap.

Weed-el. The Weed. Yeah. It should replace oddish on the weed pokemon!

Weedle! Stop taking weed your nose is getting red!

10 Staryu

Mega anyone? Seriously the person who made this list doesn't know anything about Pokemon.

The Contenders
11 Kakuna

Metapod is magikarp's wife together they're domination. Kakuna on the other hand is useless until he turns into beedrill

Kakuna used harden! It does nothing of use!

Attacks: Harden, and that's that.

12 Burmy

Clump of helpless leaves on a stick. Prove me wrong and change my mind.

13 Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

If you catch a low level one, it only knows an attack that doesn't do damage. Other than that, Jigglypuff isn't that useless.

Dumbest Pokemon ever this should be first not magikarp you jerks.I hate this pokemon.

I kick ass with jigglypuff I taught it stronger moves and it's my favourite Pokemon

14 Rattata Rattata, known in Japan as Ratta, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Rattata has high speed, but the rest of its stats is very bad. All it does is only to tail whip.

FEAR is useful but ghost types melt it.

15 Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated... read more

Magikarp is way more useful than this Pokemon. Magikarp evolves into a powerful Pokemon while charizard is fully evolved.

OK just because people are being little crybabies, because he's "overrated" doesn't mean he's useless, are you kidding me?

Whoever put Charizard on here is a noob. I don't really like Charizard, but really?

16 Dunsparce

This thing belongs in heaven.
I had a level 97 Dunsparce which beat this guy's Blissey and his Klinklang.
It was so funny since that same Pokemon was beaten after that by a Marill

10 years searching for a deformed Pokemon that should have an awesome evolved form like Magikarp and I get this what a shame.

Dunsparce is one of the worst Pokemon in the game. Maybe if it got a mega evolution, or even an evolution, it would be decent.

17 Farfetch'd

I had a level 42 Farfetch'd that basically helped me beat the whole game. Isn't useless. He bailed me out so many times...

I love this Pokemon the move set is really useful to catching Pokemon. why exactly is this Pokemon on this list?

This Pokemon is one of the most irrelevant Pokemon of all time.

18 Beautifly

It's alright, but Dustox really outshines Beautifly so the fact that you get one of two evolutionairy paths by seemingly random, with one path being a better option makes Beautifly not worth it.

Dustox is so much better in design AND moves.

On Ruby I Token down 4 gyms with this!

19 Misdreavus
20 Beedrill
21 Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is slow, puny, and fragile in little cup. If its defense is not high enough, Guts Rattata can Toxic Orb Facade this plump mouse with little effort. It has Stealth Rock, a huge plus for him, but with Moody banned in Little Cup and its frailty, none of its allowed abilities can be used effectively. This is what we call a Gimmickmon.

The only reason this Pokemon was made it's to make him learn HM to pass the game.

He is a god! He is magikarp's son. Plus, when he evolves he can rollout all the way!

22 Audino Audino, known in Japan as Tabunne, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Audino is NOT useless, if you grind on audino's like me, how are they usless?
I mean come on who doesn't like to see an audino in the wild, you can maybe level up and I don't know about you guys but I like leveling up

I use an Audino in my team and boy does it destroy people! Totally not useless, awesome healer.

The only use Audino has is it being a total XP bomb
And It'll keep your partner alive during the Subway Battles

Aaand that's it! It main purpose is to be annoying.

23 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation. A mascot of the Pokemon franchise, it's... read more

Absolutely sucks. this ovverated piece of trash keeps in the spotlight, while pokemon like magmortar, electrode, sawk, victreebel, porygon2/Z, and mamoswine never get any spotlight.

Like Lucario, it has great stats, but with a twist: Its defense sucks.

24 Tynamo
25 Cleffa

Cleffa is not useles
It's so damn cute and I can just stare at it for hours
... It's not useless okay D:
