Top 10 Weakest Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 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

I would say the worst part of Magikarp is its stats, not its moveset. It actually gets Bounce from a move tutor and Hydro Pump through an event.

In Pokemon Showdown, it can use Magikarp's Revenge in custom games only. Magikarp's Revenge is actually pretty good. It is a physical-based, water-type move with 120 base power and gives you rain, Magic Coat, Aqua Ring, and lowers your opponent's defense and special attack, and confuses the opponent in the same turn, though it needs a recharge.

To me, its stats suck more. You may say Sunkern and some others have lower stats, but Magikarp spent too much on speed, making its attack and special attack way too low. It spent 2/5 of its stats on speed. That's too much.

2 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)

I personally vote Unown as the weakest, as it only knows Hidden Power, which isn't the most ideal move for aspiring trainers. Think about it: Magikarp's Pokedex entry says it can bounce higher than buildings. Yep, you heard that. Buildings.

What can Unown do? Oh yeah, that's right, that pathetic Hidden Power. So, please reconsider placing Magikarp as the 'Weakest Pokemon.' No hate, please.

Unown takes the crown, in my opinion, with mediocre stats and only one ability.

Most Pokémon on this list might be weak, but they all share one amazing quality: they have the potential to become better. Sunkern has a few STAB moves. It's still slow, but at least it can pack a punch. Feebas can learn multiple moves through TMs/Breeding. Magikarp only has physical attacks with a measly 10 base attack, which puts him below Unown if it wasn't for the fact he evolves (at level 20, which isn't even that bad).

3 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

I don't say this because I've never used Charizard or because I hate it. It's probably my second favorite Fire-type, behind Arcanine. That's why I judge it the way I do. Charizard is not full-on "weak." There are just so many better options that make Charizard look worse in comparison.

And yes, competitively, Charizard is in a low tier because there aren't many ways to use it successfully. But even in-game (if you're talking about Kanto and its remakes), using Charizard is like playing the game on hard mode because he's bad against almost every gym leader.

I like Charizard, but no matter how you slice it, he's not very good.

4 Caterpie Caterpie, known in Japan as Caterpie, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Butterfree is stronger than Beedrill, so I'll give Caterpie some credit for that. However, it's really weak. It's one of those Pokémon that you catch, train, evolve, and then throw into the PC.

I don't hate it all that much, but it's still weak.

Wow. Just wow. Caterpie is below Charizard on this list of weakest Pokémon. Just. Wow. Go higher, Caterpie! Surpass that Charizard on this liar list of weakest Pokémon! Go higher!

Ah yes. Caterpie. I gave mine Toxic, Bug Buzz, String Shot, and Tackle. His name was Foxy_Boi. Good times.

5 Sunkern

For all of you who think Unown and Magikarp are the worst, they're meant to be. They're not meant for battling. Magikarp is just a troll until you evolve it, and Unown, I assume, is just to decode secrets and/or for decoration.

Sunkern, however, has the lowest stats in the game. At least Magikarp evolves into a killer, unlike Sunkern, who evolves into still-weak Sunflora. Sunflora is stronger, but still so weak it's funny.

Seriously, how is this thing not number one? First off, its base stats are the lowest of them all, at 180. Secondly, its evolution isn't even that good, and it requires a Sun Stone, which can be used on the mighty Bellossom. Finally, it is weak to Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice, and Poison.

This Pokemon has no secondary type to cover all of this, so it makes it pretty much useless. Catch my flow?

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

Magikarp can at least learn Tackle and Flail. What does Metapod learn? Only Harden and nothing else. Sure, you can get Tackle and String Shot by evolving Caterpie, but who wants to waste their time on such a weak Pokemon like Caterpie? And Butterfree isn't exactly a powerhouse either. The same goes for Kakuna, Cascoon, and Silcoon.

All it knows is Harden until it evolves, and that will take forever since Harden does no damage and it can barely learn anything good. Maybe I don't like it because it's a cocoon? I don't really like cocoons, but I sort of like the shape.

That's all I like about Metapod.

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

Don't be fooled by this little cutie. He may be cute, but he's weak. He only knows about four moves! (String Shot, Poison Sting, etc.) This Pokémon isn't even that strong when it's fully evolved.

Weedle is just... meh.

Well, Weedle is... just Weedle. It can have some half-decent moves if it is at a high level (as in level 11) and isn't terrible when it's shiny, but overall, it sucks.

Weedle learns the worst moves ever. Mine fainted before even using a move against a lower-level Pokemon.

8 Delibird

Charizard is number 5 here, which probably was voted by haters that prefer Venusaur, and Delibird is number 22? Get that out of here.

There is no way Charizard is worse than someone who learns only two level-up moves and has a best of around 330.

It's a Christmas bird. Why exist if it mostly heals the other Pokemon?

9 Wurmple

Wurmple is weak. We all know that. The forest Pokémon are terrible. Only Butterfree is quite good.

It uses String Shot, Harden, and is so annoying. The attack is horrible. It cannot KO my Pokémon.

I won't lie, Dustox was the dominator in my team for a while. However, Wurmple will get one-shotted unless you switch out.

In the beginning of my game, I caught a Level 9 Wurmple, who only knew Harden. But he evolved into Cascoon right away.

10 Slakoth

Where is he on this list? It has Truant, for crying out loud! It's like every one of his attacks is half the power and his defenses halved because he attacks or uses status moves one turn and is completely immobile the next.

His ability, Truant, combined with his low speed, makes him horrible. You can use Protect every time he attacks, and on the turns when Truant activates, you can use a stat boost on yourself.

He has okay stats for an early-game mon, but his ability just shuts down all usefulness.

The Contenders
11 Smeargle

Smeargle only knows Sketch. You can only use that move once until you need to use an Ether. Low stats, horrendous ability, and might work if you strategize to the highest of your abilities.

I was dumb and, until six months ago, I didn't know what Sketch did.

My Smeargle has Fusion Flare. Have I failed?

12 Kricketot

I mean, it doesn't even have a badass evolution like Magikarp. It's just a terrible Pokemon no matter how you spin it.

Kricketot evolves into the Pokemon with everyone's favorite cry, but who really cares?

Why does this Pokemon exist? Everyone forgot about it, and it's weird and weak.

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

Azurill may be weak, but it's not useless. You can actually teach it attacks from TMs, and if you treat it with love and care, you will see a powerful Azumarill emerge.

Also, the only way to get an Azurill is to breed a Marill or Azumarill, which means you'll likely get some sort of attack like Slam or Strength if you're smart with your (Azu)Marill's TMs.

I think that if you just use Strength/Slam, always take it to the PokeCenter, walk around everywhere with it, and give it plenty of treats, you'll soon get a Marill, which learns Water Gun right away.

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

Luvdisc is terrible. It's one of those Pokemon made only to fill in Pokedex space. It has horrible base stats, a poor movepool, and just about everything else. Heck, it probably sucks just as bad as Magikarp! At least Magikarp evolves into something incredible! Luvdisc doesn't.

When Alomomola, or however you spell it, came out, everyone was like, "Hey finally! Luvdisc can evolve!" But Alomomola is a single-stage Pokemon and can be considered a better version of Luvdisc. Luvdisc should be number one on the list.

Also, why is Charizard here? Charizard is awesome. Get him off here! Somebody!

16 Feebas Feebas, known in Japan as Hinbass, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How is this even Milotic? It's the Caterpie of the sea. But it has the same problem as all the Pokémon that look ugly before they evolve.

Feebas is so weak. But the worst card is this Togepi card that can only make the other person draw a card.

Feebas should be on the top of this list. It only does 10 damage, and if the coin is tails, it does nothing.

17 Silcoon

Everyone who has the guts to use Dustox in a playthrough and actually levels a Wurmple to Lv. 7 should not be rewarded with a Pokémon that evolves into Beautifly instead.

Silcoon's only saving grace is that Beautifly's base stat total is higher than Dustox's by a pathetic amount of 10.

It should be higher. It's basically Cascoon.

18 Cosmog Cosmog is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. The most iconic appearance of Cosmog in the Pokémon franchise is the one owned by Lillie from Pokémon Sun and Moon, nicknamed Nebby.

This Pokemon is hands down adorable but not very powerful at all. It's weaker than Magikarp and takes a long time to evolve. When it finally evolves, it turns into Cosmoem, which is the same, except it learns (I think Cosmic Power?). Then it actually evolves again, finally!

Then you've got an absolute beast. Never thought we would use our time on a Pokemon that can barely learn anything until it turns into Solgaleo or Lunala, but it will be worth it.

It's the Psychic-type version of Magikarp. The only differences are that Cosmog takes longer to evolve and doesn't learn any damaging moves until then.

19 Wimpod

Low stats and a garbage ability (which switches it out when its HP goes below 50%). It's also difficult to catch due to the combination of those.

20 Dunsparce

Just because it's rare doesn't mean it isn't weak. I caught a shiny red Dunsparce once, and it still sucked.

It's okay in the early game, but it will eventually become useless.

You know that Dunsparce has a higher base stat total than Onix.

21 Patrat

A lot of hate against Patrat, poor buddy. His eyes do look like they have been scratched out, though. (Patrat) Look deep into my eyes...

All this Pokemon does is stare into space. It's lazy at battling and just randomly stares at danger.

Don't ever get a Patrat. They're useless. Stupid, idiotic, useless, moronic, mindless, hopeless, weak, and easy to beat. Disgusting Patrat. They should be number one.

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

These things show up everywhere. If I look for any Pokémon, this Pokémon and its evolved form show up. These things are annoying, and I think that we should really get rid of this thing!

The one Pokemon that pisses me off at sight. Other than being an HM slave, it really isn't that good of a Pokemon.

I looked at it once, and I did not even feel like hunting it to extinction because it's so darn ugly.

23 Cascoon

Don't even bother with most bug types. The only good ones are Scyther and Scizor, Pinsir, Heracross, and Ninjask (Shedinja is super hard to get).

He should be number one! He's weaker than Magikarp because Magikarp learns Tackle at some level.

When I evolved my Wurmple, my stats literally went down. Never press B during evolution if you are trying to get a Dustox. I am only keeping one to own every single Pokémon.

Even the terribly hard training of a Cascoon is not worth it to get a Dustox. Dustoxes are also terrible.

24 Scatterbug

I have a shiny regular Vivillon and a Poké Ball Wings Vivillon, but I don't collect Vivillons. Not trading them.

Scatterbug is alright for the pattern collectors, but if you don't collect patterns, there is no point. Its name reminds me of "Pooperbug."

It's a rip-off of every other caterpillar Pokemon. At least its final evolution is OK.

Low health, only one attack, and that one attack is so weak. Why is this even a Pokemon?

25 Kakuna

Kakuna isn't even better than Metapod since, unless you teach his evolution, Beedrill, attacks like Poison Jab, X-Scissor, and Agility, it holds no candle to the combination of Sleep Powder, Bug Buzz, Dream Eater, and Nightmare you can get from Metapod's evolution, Butterfree.

Come on, it only knows Harden and they couldn't last one gym! Just put it in the front and switch them out because other than that, Kakuna basically is dead.

The whole line was garbage until Beedrill could Mega Evolve (his mega is... actually pretty good).
