Worst Pokemon Characters

This list describes the dumbest, most unpopular Pokemon Characters. I totally/partly hate all of these.
The Top Ten
1 Serena Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship ...read more.

Serena is boring. Extremely girly, cooking pastries, into fashion, dressing up, dressing up her Pokemon... I've seen Dawn do this in Sinnoh. What's worse is how her current interest has nothing to do with battling, the core element of Pokemon. Pokemon performers seem really sexist. First of all it's females only. A gender specific competition in Pokemon is odd. Secondly, again, there's no battling. It's like the creators were thinking "Oh. Boys only battle. Girls like to dress up, look cute and dance." Again, somewhat sexist.

I remember this shining moment from episode 2 of the XY anime...
Serena's mother: Become one with Rhyhorn!
(Serena gets bucked off)
Serena: Mom! I hate this!
That part made me laugh so hard. Too bad she would be more like her game counterparts where she can actually ride Rhyhorn if you're playing as the female character.

Say what you will about Misty but even when she was on the side lines she was vital to the group. She was the most stable of the three for a while and had to be aggressive to keep Ash and Brock in their respected checks. Ash's arrogance/immaturity and Brock falling for every pretty girl within view. She was actually really nice at times when Ash and/or Brock did not push her buttons. And sometimes her aggressing helped Ash, like in his battle with Rudy.

Serena on the other hand was really just there for filler, to crush on Ash, and give Bonnie someone to bond with. Iris was just Misty with no charm but since she did not have a lot of importance in main plots I'll skip over her. Serena's plots were just lesser versions of May's or Dawn's as the performances were like 1/2 of the contests.

Oh yeah Ash x Serena is so one sided it would capsize if were a boat.

In all my years of Pokemon, never have I seen such a useless character. Every one of Ash's companions were unique, and they had original designs and personalities. Serena is just a stereotype barbie doll. All she ever does is think about looking pretty and getting Ash's attention. Everyone says that Dawn and Misty served no purpose and that they were stereotypes. Are you kidding me!? Misty was a cool tomboy who would put on nice clothes every now and then. And sure, Dawn was a girly-girl but unlike a stereotype girly-girl Dawn only put on special clothes to look feminine, not to show off. And unlike the other pokegirls, Serena had no special design. Strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, sound familiar? Not only that but Serena's goal was super stupid. A Pokemon performer? All they do is dress-up and show-off their Pokemon. They don't even show the true point of the show, battling. If you all noticed, Ash, Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, and Cilan's goals all had something to do with ...more

2 Ash Ketchum

I don't see a reason to like Ash. Some say he's a good character because he doesn't give up, but what he doesn't give up on? The writers try to justify Ash's actions with "pokemon master", but you don't even know why Ash personally wants to achieve this goal(let alone what it is or what does he gain from achieving it). Then there are those who say Ash is a good character because he cares about pokemon. However, you might think otherwise with his Ash treats his own pokemon. First of all Ash places his pokemon in the most asinine situations. " It's Candice the ice type specialist. Go get 'em Gliscor and Grotle!" Also you see what happens afterward. During a saga you hear Ash talk about how his pokemon are his friends and they'll stick together and grow strong together. However, by the end of the saga Ash tosses his "friends" aside like their old toys. To add insult to injury he goes out and captures new pokemon of the exact same type(for years it was grass/water/fire/bird over and ...more

Ash feels more of a sellout than ever in Journeys. Not only is he just working with the "popular" pokemon like Gengar/Dragonite/Lucario, but Ash is still ignoring his old pokemon despite spending so much time in Kanto. I guess being a pokemon master means being a big sellout.

Ash is the koopalings of Pokemon. Both offer the same pathetic thing with just a different look. The koopalings are garbage characters/bosses who do the same "recycle the boss with a different, lame koopaling skin" routine. Ash is a pathetic trainer who does the same thing of struggling to collect the badges, struggling with the same type of Pokemon in fire/grass/water/regional bird/Pikachu and he ultimately loses at the league while wearing a different outfit. Same crap, different look.

Ash is completely illogical. He tosses his Pokemon aside like old toys just to capture substitutes who present new problems for him to struggle with. In every series Ash has a competitive goal, but he's not fully dedicated to it. He spends more time eating and being distracted by random problems which have nothing to do with his goal. To top things off we don't know why Ash even wants to become a Pokemon master. Does he want to follow in his father's footsteps? Does he want to achieve something his father could not? Perhaps there's some kind of benefit of being a Pokemon master which would help his family? We don't know!

3 Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris ...read more.

People called her a Mary Sue before, but now it appears Iris is a freaking champion. "Hey, Ash! Guess what? I won an official pokemon league on my first try! What's that? You've been trying to win a league for twenty years?! Sheesh. You're such a little kid, Ash. You're such a little kid."

Iris in the games: A carefree daughter of the mayor of Opelucid City, with her becoming the champion in the sequels.
Iris in the anime: A stupid Misty-esque tomboy, this time with Dragon types, and constantly acts like a Karen. Lol, ass.

The only reason I ever here someone hating iris for is her phrase "what a kid" or variations on that phrase ignoring that phrase I never here anything else negative about her. People are probably going to hate me for this but I think she was a breath of fresh air I mean after 2 regions of having the girl be coordinator it was nice to see something different and addressing her catchphrase she's calling ash out for things the fans have made jokes about for years if anything serena is worse because the only thing she has above iris is her past relationship with ash. If you don't like iris that's fine there are reasons to dislike her maybe you find her voice annoying all I'm asking is that you put your nostalgia for misty behind you and judge iris without nostalgic bias clouding you if you still dislike Iris after doing that well that's fine I'm not going to judge you as a person because I'm sure you're a nice person in real life (making personal judgements of people because their ...more

Her "dragon master" goal was horribly vague and never explored. Her Axew was completely useless in battle. Said Axew spent more time causing trouble and getting itself lost moreso than anything else. Combine these things with her arrogance and annoying catchphrase and I just didn't have any reason to care for Iris. Iris was just...annoying.

4 Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ ...read more.

... People give her way, way too much of a free pass, and the fact that they hate other characters for way less but give this girl a free pass for everything is astounding.

Does Ash being a novice trainer who's a little stupid at times, excuse her absolutely awful attitude to him? Does it excuse slapping him and assuming he mistreated his Pikachu (especially seeing how this brat ended up treating her Psyduck, hypocrite much?)? Does it excuse belittling him worse than his rival did? And his arrogance? Please, she was twice as arrogant with infinitely less skills to back herself up, she rarely fought against opponents that weren't Jessie/James/Meowth and when she fought Ash, he'd always had the upper hand and would've beaten her to a pulp if it wasn't for TR interrupting / her using a baby Pokemon and Pikachu's kindness to cover her own tail (and, as adorable as Pikachu's relationship with her was, it was a little exaggerated, he's made plenty of friends and then fought against ...more

"Oh why did Misty leave, she was awesome! " "The older show is better than the new show! " "Go die in a hole May and Dawn, and other female characters! We hate you! "

Do you know how whiny, bratty, and immature this sounds? I mean, some of the Misty fans are constantly complaining over a cartoon character's departure, and that's stupid. I mean, come on! Not only that, but they want to act like she was a perfect and pretty tomboy and crap like that. Dude, Misty was as far from tomboyish as you can get. She always insisted on going shopping, she was scared of harmless bugs, and she would always pick and choose which Pokemon and humans she was nice to. Are you kidding me? That's not tomboyish, that is snobby and stuck-up. All the other females were original (well, except for Serena) and they had their own qualities that made them very likable. I mean, May was sweet and tomboyish, Dawn was optimistic and playful, and Iris was athletic and headstrong. ...more

Misty is the worst character of all. All she does is follow ash around and never does anything productive. If any case ash is always saving her. Come on she claims to be sweet when really she is the meanest person ever. She is always insulting everybody and thinks she is so pretty. Come on can she have some modesty. What really annoyed me was the fact that ash found the togepi egg but misty still persisted in keeping it and pushed ash out of the way when it hatched. She basically stole his Pokemon. Also why does she act like pikachu belongs to her. It doesn't. She is a brat and the worst Pokemon character of all. Why is she so mean to psyduck? A Pokemon trainer loves all their Pokemon and if it wasn't for him misty would have no Pokemon at all.

"All of them are little denigrates."

There is a difference between supporting your opinion and using evidence to back it up, and just forcing one to agree with you because you think your opinion is right. If it was fact, of course we'd believe it, but not everybody has to like Misty. Now although she has admirable qualities, such as confidence and independence, I just never liked Misty. In my opinion she was too aggressive and stubborn and acted the same way some of the girls in my class acted. It would get annoying seeing them try to act all tough and tomboyish and when a boy would hit them, they'd get all defensive. And just because I dislike her, doesn't mean I have get all in your face about it just because you want me to agree with you. And it's awfully funny how nobody insulted or cursed you out because of your train of thoughts. This a website where different people can have different opinions, and that means that we can say what we want to say speak our minds but that ...more

5 Paul

Paul should be the number one most hateable Pokemon character because he was nothing but an abuser!
He never treated his Pokemon as friends! Only objects of power... which is a shame.
And every time when ash says something nice and positive about Pokemon being friends, he just says the word Pathetic! That always gets on my nerve!
But of course, there are moments that totally gave us satisfaction, like paul loosing a battle against the awesome powerful Cynthia
And what about the battle of paul against the pyramid king? That battle was just satisfying! Paul loosing while the pyramid king hasn't lost any Pokemon.
But yet ash feels bad for paul. I didn't even felt bad for him, HE DESERVED TO LOOSE!

All I ever hear is people saying that Paul is such a great rival man he is not. Unlike most of a Ash's rivals, Paul did noting but abuse and abandon is Pokemon because they weren't "good enough". All of Ash's rivals cared for their Pokemon and supported them so they could do their best. And even though Gary would tease Ash a bunch it was just a friendly rivalry to prove who was better and even despite this Gary still loved his Pokemon. Paul on the other just yelled at them to do better, even when they trained their hardest? That's messed up.

Is Paul really that self-centered and cruel?!?!? Out of all the rivals he is definitely the worst one. All he cares about is power and he shows no respect to his own Pokemon (especially Chimchar) or to other people like Ash and his friends. He's always calling others and Pokemon "pathetic", doesn't care about friendship or kindness, and he cares about nobody but himself! Also, because of the way he treats his own Pokemon with such disrespect how dare he calls himself a trainer! If he's always going to be scolding his own Pokemon for thinking they are weak, worthless, and useless then I don't think he deserves to be a Pokémon trainer!

I don't understand Paul's (or trip's) character. I'm not talking about how he's mean to his Pokemon, but more as to WHY he's mean to his Pokemon. So he has some older brother complex or something? He somehow thought when he was real young that his brother didn't treat his Pokemon poorly enough for some reason? What kind of screwed up thinking made Paul equate his brother losing to the pyramid dude with THREE LEGENDARIES, as to be strong trainer you must treat Pokemon like lesser beings even though they can easily tear you apart? Ash's rivalry may be interesting to see how they clashed, but he was an awful character who made zero sense.

6 Harley

Revenge over a stupid cookie is one thing, but to hold a grudge over years and taking it out on a girl who only looked like the one who stole it? Talk about pathetic. All he does is get butt-hurt over May beating him, and no matter how many times May is willing to forgive him, he NEVER can. He's so sad that he dresses up as a little girl. Really, a baby outfit would be a better suit for him since that's what he all acted like. It's surprising he even had a friend (Solidad) from how huge of a self-centered prick he was.

Harley is one of the most manipulative egotistical self-centered guys I have ever seen. Trying to sabotage may in her contests over a damn cookie is just wrong. You know if he was half the man that I don't think he is he wiuld bury the hatchet sith may and just tell her that he's sorry for what he did.

Harley is just stupid. He has a vendetta against a girl just because she said his cookie wasn't 'half-bad'. I mean come on. A cookie. She wasn't trying to be mean. He acts like a three year old. OH, YOU POOR BABY, MAY HATED YOUR COOKIE! GROW THE HELL UP, HARLEY!

Harley acts like a whiny bratty toddler, He wanted to do revenge to poor May over a stupid dumb cookie. He throws tantrums when he gets to his house, #HarleyFromPokemonIsAWhinyBaby. I feel bad for May that she has to put up with this idiot. Jar Jar Binks is way better than Harley.

7 Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

It's actually funny how the Striaton gym leaders are named after various foods. Cilan: cilantro.
Chili: chili pepper.
Cress: watercress.
These are all ingredients in Mexican food, fitting for their spicy personality in the games. The anime... not so much.

Cilan may be annoying, but hating him because he replaced Brock is stupid. We all know Brock had to leave but it wasn't just because he stayed so long, it's because of Ash. Why I say that is because Ash is the only child, and he lives alone with his mother so he had no father figure whatsoever. But after he met Brock, Ash kinda started depending on Brock for everything. He looked up to him as a role model and even began taking on some of his personality traits. Eventually though, Ash started to mature, and then grew into his own character which stated giving him not much of big need to depend on him. So he left not only to become a Pokemon doctor but also because he knew Ash could handle things on his own unless he met new friends. And besides, when Ash met Cilan, Cilan didn't really act as a brother or father but more of a close friend. He may have not have as big of a relationship, but he was still important to the plot. And if they hadn't created Cilan, the viewers would've gotten ...more

Let's be fair most people who hate Cilan only hate him because he was the replacement for Brock and that if Brock was still around most people wouldn't hate him at least not as much. Cilan isn't some perfect god of a character but I can almost assure you that if Cilan was ash's travelling companion in kalos while clemont joined him in unova you would hate clemont and say Cilan was a better travelling companion and I do believe that a lot of the Cilan haters (and iris haters to an extent) just can't accept the fact that they replaced Brock I mean it happened when misty left, people said may sucks and bring misty back.

Conessuier, the worst goal in all existence. Not only does it require to act like a know-it-all jerk... just what the heck is the point of it? Just looking back on what he's said about Ash's Pokemon in their first battle, I wouldn't be surprised that he said those mean things to Burgundy's Pokemon. All this kid does is OBSESS over every little thing, because his real goal is that bland. Dudes worse than most fangirls of anything.

And the awful "Evaluation time! " or whatever... Is this show trying to get 5 year olds interested or something?

8 Burgundy Burgundy is a fictional character who appears in the Pokémon Black & White anime series, a C-class Pokémon Connoisseur and rival to Cilan who she vowed revenge after losing to him in a Gym battle and evaluating her Pokémon she became motivated to study and become a high ranking Connoisseur in order ...read more.

Why is Georgia even friends with her?! She's so annoying! She thinks she is so strong while it's quite obvious she's the weakest trainer of all time. She also thinks she's too good for everyone, even herself. All these tiny elements are what makes her annoying. Also, she lost to Trip's Serperior, with two moves, one of them being an attack that is not very effective on it. She needs to stop entering tournaments and actually get better!

Burgundy is your typical French person. Snobby arrogant annoying and just can't win any battles. How much of a loser can uou be the only trainer she ever beat was chilly and he ain't much himself. Burgundy find something else to do like cook French fries because honestly you can't make it as a trainer

She is pretty annoying...and rude...and loud. She's so obsessed with beating Cilan all the time that that's the only thing she cares about. I just think she's an obnoxious, bland character, like a recipe for a rival gone bad. :P (Okay, that Cilan-style line was on purpose, haha.)

This character ruined the show for me. She has no accomplishments other than becoming a C class cona-whatever and earning a trio badge. Now, her entire purpose for being a Pokemon trainer is just so she can beat Cilan. What a lame excuse for a character.

9 Bonnie Bonnie is created by game freak & Nintendo. She was in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, as Clemont's (the electric type gym leader of Lumiose City) younger sister. She gave out quizzes to trainers who came to challenge the gym, who if they get it wrong would have to challenge a trainer. ...read more.

The gag was the one part of Bonnie's character I disliked, and the episode where a girl likes Clemont might be the one episode I didn't care for Bonnie in, but other than that she wasn't bad. I don't even feel like the gag was such a huge part of her character. She was actually plot relevant in 19th season (something rare for companions, most of them stay in the back screaming Ash's name in concern) and I liked that she was a different take on the little sister in anime: usually they're token bland characters that only exist to be cute and do nothing but stay at home and get protected by their older brother, while Bonnie is allowed to travel and be in the action, sometimes she's even the one protecting others, I really like that. XY might be overrated at times, but the characters (save for shipping tool Serena and the usual Charizard wa nk) aren't bad.

"Bonnie on the other hand acted wild and stupid. I know she's just a little kid but that's no excuse. "

Really, how smart where you when you where YOUNGER than ten? She's obviously going to be ignorant about a lot of things and wants to be the center of attention. Sorry, but most young kids INCLUDING GIRLS are stupid.

And you want to talk about stereotypes, most shows show young girl ether having to stay home because they are so vulnerable and innocent that they can't go and or wanting and needing protection and obeys no matter what with no complaints and not trying to help older sibling at all. While I find the gag stupid, he still wants her brother happiness and wants to make sure he doesn't end up alone. And she hates being to'd 'you can't do this...'

"I'd say she's a breath of fresh air compared to know-it-all whiny brat Max"

I'd say it's the other way if around you ask me. I mean, sure Max is annoying but at least he was kind of nice and not so hyperactive all the time. Bonnie on the other hand acted wild and stupid. I know she's just a little kid but that's no excuse. They act like they have to make the series about stereotypical females. All the other years we had a competitive tomboy, sweet coordinator, cheerful girly-girl, and a wild jungle girl. In other words, unique females. Now, we have a ten-year-old barbie doll, and pint sized idiot.

To me Bonnie is just so annoying I can see everyone's point but even if she is young at least try to act even the slightest bit of mature like max. I just really hate this character who literally contributes nothing to the show all she does is the same thing over again saying "can you take care of my brother" and "a pokemon wow let me take care of it." Her voice to me is very annoying and is very predictable sometimes I even wish team rocket would kidnap her then lose her in some forest where she could never be found and I hope that there will never be a character like her again in the pokemon series.

10 Gary Oak Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak . He had cheerleaders & his own car. ...read more.

Here's my unpopular take: I do like Gary as a character, but I feel like he was one of the worst handled in terms of being a RIVAL to Ash. I liked his personality (it was pretty interesting to see him interact with Ash), their battle in the Johto League (though Paul's was definitely better and, as overrated as it is, Alain's might have been as well) and his returns in D/P series were neat but besides that, Gary barely even BATTLED Ash during his time as a rival, when the whole interest of having a rival is to battle them (or confront them in whatever activity you and your Pokemon take part in), Gary would usually just leave when Ash asked him to fight and barely did anything memorable as a RIVAL, aside from being the first one. Trip battled Ash more than Gary did! That's a problem here. In terms of being the bratty kid that puts down Ash, he surely was better than Misty at it but Ash needed a rival to battle and confront, not another person to put him down like his so called ...more

Ok... I don't know who put him on here? I had no problem with him after I admit I wasn't a big fan of Pokemon anime as a kid... Sorry Gary's hater but I would be opposite of shipping of Ash and Misty since I'm not big fan of them since I'm neutral. I'd rather see him getting humiliation or tease from his favorite pesky girl Leaf Green or seeing Gary and Leaf Green would be paired up like a childhood love and hate together! It's like she would've been a nerdy and his personality because of bunch of cheerleader and a cocky all because he brags he's way ahead of you that he has bunch of badges would have been turned real if GameFreak should've done opportunity this! Leaf Green would be a cure for breaking Gary Oak ego and a playboy. Also it would be funny if Gary ego player would start caring about Leaf throughout Kanto and Johto! Too bad GameFreak missed opportunity... It would've becoming so real! :( If they were had time to add female counterpart for Red & Green and Gary's real ...more

I have no problem with gary what so ever. There's nothing wrong with a friendly rivalry. And him and ash are prime examples. Now look at him he's a Pokemon researcher now and I think it's pretty cool. I couldn't think of anyone better that would be a cooler researcher than gary.

Gary, Misty, and Brock shouldn't be on here. And come on guys, give Team Rocket a little credit. They've been after Pikachu for 17 years and still haven't given up. At least be impressed by their determination.

The Newcomers

? Goh
The Contenders
11 Jessie

Everyone compares Jessie to Misty when the two are actually different. Yeah, they are both tsunderes but, unlike Misty, Jessie had a bad life. And I know what you're saying "They both had terrible lives." Actually no, Misty just grew up with sisters who teased her every now and then. I mean, I know how it feels but that's no excuse to go around beating people up. Jessie on the other hand grew up in an orphanage and was forced to eat snow and mess like this. Not only that, but Jessie's a villain, which doesn't make her personality that strange. But Misty, you're a hero, so act like it!

I'm so glad this whore is on this list. I've hated her since I was in eleventh grade for her bitchy behavior. Why, she makes me pleased that I have no girlfriend. I wish that Meowth killed her.

If anyone asks me, I'm sick of how she and her teammates seem show up in every episode of Pokemon, recite a poem, and scream, "We're blasting off again! " whenever they lose. What would please me a lot is if Team Rocket, except Meowth, actually dies and gets sent to hell, where they can be tortured forever.

I don't agree, Jessie had a bad life, I'm pretty sure her dad died and her mom disappeared trying to catch Mew. She was taken into an orphanage that was so broke she ate snow. She grew up and wanted to be a nurse but failed cause the school was for Chanseys. She meet James at Pokemon tech and got the worst score ever (with James. ) She is also mistreated by guys. She had a awful life that made her the way she is today, her and Misty is the most realistic.

All of you who down-voted my first comment about Jessie and voted that Jessie fanatic's comment u pare bind in the head. Can you not see how much of a she is?! Just because she was mistreated by guys, it doesn't give her the right to treat her teammates like. By doing that, she's no better than a male chauvinist.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that you Jessie fans are feminazis who refuse to respect the opinions of her haters. Just leave us haters alone and get on with your damn lives!

12 James

My opinion james is good at heart it's just the decisions that he made were bad in my mind james actually likes Pokemon and if he would just get away from those two big mouths he could have a great future I mean come on who wants to spend their whole life blasting off time and time again

Really? I know TRio has lost their charm over the years and are just useless nowadays, but seriously he's nowhere near the worst get him off here!

Stupid voice, stupid personality, he's terrible. He's not even a villain, he's just there for little six year olds to point him out a how stupid he is.

They really had no need for James... Once in a while, Team Rocket would even miss him out from their "introduction song"

13 Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. ...read more.

I hate how everyone dislikes Dawn so much. I mean, just because she wears short skirts, does feminine things (like a girl is supposed to), and likes cute Pokemon, everybody hates her.

(1) There is nothing wrong with wearing mini-dresses when your a girl. Like how there is nothing wrong with a girl wearing shorts and crop-tops (yeah, if Misty can do it, so can Dawn, there just being feminine)

(2) As I said early, there's nothing wrong with a girl being feminine. Not all girls are tomboys. And besides, I don't think Dawn's all that girly. I mean, she says words like "awesome" and "cool", catches really strong Pokemon (Mamoswine, Quilava), has natural athletic abilities, and has the ability to defend herself like Misty and Iris.

(3) Some of you see where I'm getting at with my examples. Now listen, as you can tell, all the female companions have a thing for cute Pokemon, but for some reason all of the fans only get mad at Dawn because of it. I mean, come on, it's a ...more

Personally, I remember despising Dawn at first. And why was that? Stupid propaganda and shippers that's what. With everyone commenting on how /awful/ and /useless/ Dawn was, I didn't really know any better and I agreed. It wasn't until I started watching the DP series that I understood how not awful and useless Dawn was.

Dawn is one of my favorite Pokemon characters up to date. And no, it wasn't because she was pretty or anything, but it was the character development she's been through. Unlike May, who managed to succeed in everything last minute (forgive me if I'm wrong, it's been a while since I watched the advanced gen, and I do like May thank you very much), I loved how Dawn was pretty much set to fail during the beginning. It showed that contests weren't easy. You had to work hard to reach your goals. And I believe that the writers did a great job with that for Dawn. During the beginning of her journey Dawn was overly confident, and determined to be a Top Coordinator. She ...more

It saddens me how Dawn is so high up on this list just because she's girly and beat May and does contests just like May too. I love May, but just because she was the first coordinator does not mean Dawn is automatically worse than her or a horrible character. Unlike Serena she did not cry over her first loss. After losing three times she cried but quickly got back up because she realized that it would not change anything and that she needs to work hard and be determined. This is character development. After realizing what she was doing wrong, she learned from her mistakes and was able to beat May using that knowledge. At least she did not cut her hair and change her whole look thinking that will change everything (which by the way it does not) I also don't like the fact that people hate on her because of her style of clothing. Like have you seen Misty in some episodes? She shows more than Dawn ever had but no everyone still thinks it's fine for her to wear more revealing clothes BUT ...more

"Annoying and stupid. May is the best Pokemon girl."

I know it's only YOUR opinion but in MY opinion, May is an overrated character. I mean sure, she's nice, she won a lot of ribbons, competed in two grand festivals, blah, blah, blah. But the problem with May fans is, some of them don't even look towards her flaws. Some of them just want to make her look like she was a perfect little girl when she wasn't. She was pessimistic for the past two seasons (1/2 of the series), and she was a diva (people want to talk about Ash, look at her, in one Pokemon episode, she got so much attention she was literally screaming with joy.)

And I know what you're thinking now "But you're just saying these things cause you're a Dawn fan" Actually no, I like May, and I just prefer Dawn. And even though I prefer Dawn, there are still some flaws that she had. She was ditzy, overconfident, and like May, took a bit of time to get over these flaws. But despite this, Dawn had a lot of likable ...more

14 Georgia

This girl is annoying as hell. She's rude and eats other people's food. She's like a cross between Harley and Ursula, she become a "Dragon Buster" just because she got beaten in a land where dragon Pokemon live. Please. And then every time she loses a match she'll be like "It's not a dragon type so it doesn't count." That girl is freakishly obsessing over dragon type Pokemon

The thing that mostly annoys me about Georgia is how little sense her character makes. She got defeated by a Dragon Pokémon once, so now she dedicated her life to beating dragon trainers?

Then she runs her big mouth every time and demands to fight against dragon types only, WITH her super effective ice type Pokémon. And whenever she's up to fight against a pokémon that her Beartic is not super effective against it's "not worth her time".

Demanding you only fight pokémon when you have a type advantage seems pretty cowardly to me.

And besides that she's basically the same person as Burgundy. One of them was already plenty annoying, why the writers decided to introduce one for Iris AND Cilan is beyond me.

This girl can be a little annoying, but I appreciate that they gave Iris a rival instead of not giving her any like Misty. But I wish she was... Better? She is kind of weak, useless and forgettable honestly.

Oh my good, you always say that your going to beat Iris, but you never do! You always talking, but your so weak that you get out on the first round in every battle tournament!

15 Bianca Bianca is a character from Pokemon by gamefreak & Nintendo. She is one of the rivals & a childhood friend of the protagonist in Pokemon black and Pokemon White. She lives in Nuvema Town, and was held back of being a Pokemon trainer because of her overprotective father wouldn't let her be one. Bianca ...read more.

God, I despise her. In the original games and the sequels, she's annoying. In the original Black and White, she's not ready to be a Trainer! She always has her dad hovering over her, including the run-in with her dad in Nimbasa City! Eventually, Elesa barges in, and resolves the situation. Good. She would be better off without her dad, anyway. Stupid daddy's girl. In the sequels, she's improved greatly, but she's still annoying. Especially the parts in Reversal Mountain where she follows you behind your back. And she always tries to be a smart person, but just comes off as a smart aleck! She's basically the Seymour Skinner of the Pokemon franchise.

Oh come this girl shouldn't even be on this list. She needs to have her one website about how stupid and annoying she is. But then her stupidity would probably cause the Internet to crash. Bianca grow up and then you can be a trainer but you have a mind of a five year old but then again a five year old is probably smarter than you.

From this character to up, they are all good (in my opinion). Sure, Bianca can be a little annoying, but she still is unique from all other characters. And yes, Ash may be the worst trainer ever, but he still cares for pokemon. I'm not even sure why everyone else Bianca and above is hated. They are all good characters.

I'm new at Pokemon and currently playing white 2 as my second game so I don't know much bout all these characters...but it doesn't need an expert to say that Bianca is a bitch. She always pops up and tells me stuff I have no intention of listening to. Once she took me inside some trees and left me there. Now I see her staring at a rock in a cave and now I'm too scared to go in because the game logic won't let me punch her on the face and run away. I'm pretty sure, someday, Bianca will take me to Giratina's dimension and say "we seem to have gotten lost, could you find our way out? " And then I'll be left with the choice 'yes' or 'yes' and will be force to drag that bitch's ass back to the normal world. I'm just mentally preparing myself for that day so I don't break my Ds.

16 Alain

The league isn't the sole reason why I despise Alain. Alain had so much potential to be such a good character, but he ended up bland and predictable. He only lost twice but never lost again after those losses. You know he's going to win because that's the kind of character he is. He doesn't even need you typical wish fulfillment, he just wins. I have a feeling they only made him like this because of Charizard and they have to make Charizard a complete bad ass for marketing purposes. (YES, Charizard is STILL overrated and a marketing ploy. Charizard as a Pokemon is very well known and liked despite losing some of its popularity lately)

It really sucks. I loved the concept they had with Alain, being an anti-hero protagonist who is being manipulated by the bad guy and all, as well as showing of mega evolution, but it just ended up not as good as it could've been. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I wish Alain had more struggle as a trainer as it would feel more realistic. ...more

He's more competent than Ash as a trainer but he is so BORING TO WATCH. He's so dull, bland, and predictable because you know the outcome of pretty much all of battles. He wins. That's it. That's all you get. He only lost like 2 times I think and if he beats Ash, then that would make things worse for him. He's such a Gary Stu, the Tobias 2.0 if you want to get real of how much he easily defeats almost everyone he makes eye contact with. Ash if you have to lose to Alain because the writers don't want you to win leagues most of the time, don't beat only 2 of his Pokemon. I beg of yo u.. y ou can do better.

Even though I hate Serena more than Alain, I still hate that guy quite a lot! And no, I'm not gonna go easy on him and try to find positive aspects of his character like one of my favorite anime characters who I will not disclose the name of in fear of people comparing Alain to him. Anyways, if you wanna know how much people hate Alain, I looked at a forum on MyAnimeList.net discussing episode 38 of Pokemon XY&Z, and when I tried looking at the poll results for the episode, a huge majority rated it a 1 out of 5. BY A LANDSLIDE! No higher scoring had as much votes as the 1 out of 5 rating! 2 out of 5 was just the runner-up! Yup. Lots of people hated this episode because of Alain.

The only thing that... Kind of annoyed me was that Ash lost the League while they made it look like he would win this time. But other than that, I don't hate Alain. And still better than Tobias, at least Alain was introduced before, was more than just the guy whom Ash lost to at the League and didn't have a Darkrai and a Latios...

17 Damian

He left his Charmander alone. Need I say more? This guy is very egotistical and douchy. He should be in the top 10 at least. Lana isn't that bad.

He was such a douche. Well, I guess that was his character purpose. But he's still a trashy person like Paul.

The worst piece of filth to ever grace the screen of T.V.. His hilarious accent is the only thing likable about this douchebag.

Damian and Serena should swap places

18 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.

Are you serious, charizard should not even be on this list. Ok charizard didn't exactly listen to ash at first but that was due to ash's lack of experience at the time. Now he and charizard are almost as close as he and pichachu are. So in my opinion charizard on this list is like saying that a magikarp is the most powerful Pokemon of all time. Seriously this is worst choice on this list that I have seen

I sense something, "overrated" Pokemon are universally hated while "underrated" ones are loved. Don't find any overrated, just had to say this. Also, if it wasn't for the anime, Charizard wouldn't be my #1 favorite Pokemon, though still top 10 worthy. Felt so sorry for him that even when he went Maverick, I still felt upset.

Heh, I bet the people who put Charizard on this list never watched past season 1. Charizard is definitely one of Ash's best and most reliable Pokemon these days, he shouldn't be here.

Charizard is so lazy. I'm surprise it doesn't have the ability "truant". He also makes Ash lose the lead in the first season. No wonder why Ash got rid of him.

19 Cameron

Cameron is an idiot, because he was always assuming things. He ASSUMED that trainers only need seven badges, because he thought the eighth badge was only awarded to the champion. He ASSUMED that he did not need to register for the league and almost did not qualify. And he ASSUMED that a full Pokémon battle only consisted of five Pokémon. And yet, he still defeated Ash. What the hell!

I mean, it's like if some lazy college student never went to class, played video games most of the time, ASSUMED when his assignments are due and ASSUMED what day exams are held and somehow gets A+. What a load of bull!

Always and forever annoying! I hate him, not only did he become the worst characters in the BW anime, he is (kind of) like a cheater, he stretches his headband, and it lets go of it so he can have an idea. What is that stupid headband made out of that gives him a damn idea? A buzzer?! Buzzjoy! Nope, not only that, I just can't stand him any More. He's the worst of all out of the other characters, but not as awful as that hypocritical bastard, Stueben, I don't care what's his name or how is it pronounced.

What can you say about Cameron he's as idiotic as they come. I mean he doesn't know that you have to have 8 gym badges to get in the Pokemon league and that a full battle consists of six Pokemon. He ain't no trainer he's a laughing stock. But I gotta say he does add a lot of character to the show. He just needs to figure out how to use it right.

Cameron was a quirky kind of rival. Not the best of rivals and not the most skilled. He's goofy and kinda scatterbrained, but can be funny. But my hatred of him comes from the league. He's a lot worse than Ash in skill, he got lucky because the writers wanted him to lose. It would've been better Ash lost to Virgil in my opinion

20 Kenny

I hated the way he treated Dawn in the series. How are you supposed to be in love with her when all you do is put her down? That's like saying "a boy picks on you because He loves you" Even though that's not love. It never is and shouldn't be. He was the cause of her trauma, because HE WAS THE ONE WHO STARTED CALLING HER DIAMOND DANDRUFF. Who does that to a person they love?! Then he got the nerve to have a battle with ash to determine who Dawn gets to travel with as if she's property. Dawn can make her own decisions. I'm glad she went with Ash. And when the series end, I hope she ends up with that other trainer who liked her. At least he was trying to impress her and not put her down. I don't care what dawn does in her future as long as he's not in it.

How is he not already on this list? And how is Dawn on this list and not Kenny? Oh, right. I guess it's because he is so forgettable! I always hated the way he treated Dawn like a trophy, and was jealous of her and Ash's friendship. He is also the reason she was traumatized by Plusle and Minen. He always talked down to her and NEVER cared about HER feelings! He " wanted" her because he had a crush on her but doesn't care about her as a person. He has NO good qualities whatsoever. He's so pathetic that I almost feel sorry for him. Almost.

Kenny is a little prick, that is what he is. I hated him since I first saw him in the anime. His first appearance was making fun of Dawn in front of her new friends (Ash and Brock) by telling them embarrassing childhood stories about her. And we have to believe he wants to be with her? He doesn't respect her. You know what he deserves? Dawn to drop kick him right in the face.

I agree with eventer51314. This guy got on my nerves! He's a bully to Dawn and acts like a jerk. He always humiliates her. I wanna shove him facefront in a wet dirty pool of rocks and sludge.

21 Tobias

In a way, Sinnoh's League loss wasn't as disgraceful as the Unova or Kanto one. Beating two legendary Pokemon after a fierce battle allowed Ash to go out in a blaze of glory rather than losing to an idiot and his overpowered Lucario, or losing to a Charmander and a Pikachu because he couldn't train his Charizard properly.

However, that doesn't mean Tobias isn't the most blatant incarnation of "we will never let Ash win a League (at the time, before Alola) that isn't the special Orange Islands' one, Ash this season battles strategically and has good Pokemon, but we will introduce this character at the last minute just to show that we won't accept for him to win" mentality the writers had. And it was even worse that he didn't have any other moment or was introduced beforehand, like even Cameron was introduced before the League and had some moments before defeating Ash and same for the other people who defeated him in Leagues, but this guy does not. He just shows up with his ...more

When Ash finally beats Paul, gets out of the Top 8 position, and is this close to winning the league, this guy comes in. No, not with your average Raichu or Caterpie, but with a bunch of stinkin' legendary Pokemon. And in the end, he creams all 6 of Ash's Pokemon with 2 and becomes the victor. Either the writers wanted to make Ash seem cooler, or they tried to give us another so-called rival we wanted Ash to wipe the floor with.

If Tobias didn't have those legendary Pokemon by his side it would have been a lot more competitive between him and his opponents so him being on the show is a complete rip off to the other characters on the show. When he won the sinnoh league they should have ended the series right there because he had the most unfair battles in the entire series.

For real? Get this guy in the number one spot. Because having not one, but two legendary Pokémon. And supposedly having two more and not having a back story. No just no.

He will forever be known as that bull trainer because that shouldn't be nowhere near possible in the anime. He just a lazy excuse for a character just so Ash could lose the sinho.

22 Ursula

I don't like her she's annoying, causes drama for no particular reason the only thing that makes me only dislike her instead hate her is because she looks like Teto.. Yeah I know stupid reason but come on! Who could hate teto?

Is just jerk to cause drama. No personality besides being a sore loser and she had no reason to be so cruel to Dawn.

She's such a diva and drama queen. She snotty sassy and snobby. She's like Harley in a dress and pigtails.

She's way better than Dawn, Dawn has only defeated her out of sheer luck.

23 Stephen

He "cheated" his way to making it through all of the "Clubsplotion" tournament by "MAKING A WISH ON THE 'WISHING BELL'". "SHERMAN" (I DON'T CARE HOW THIS DUMBASS' NAME IS CALLED) was the most ridiculous character I could NEVER bear through because he's annoying. Not only that, people ship this FAT idiot with Bianca! While I like (and love, don't ask why) Bianca, I can tolerate with the shippings with Bianca and Cheren, but not that BLEUUURRGHH... NO! He is the new Butcher (I know how it's called, I just had to do that for "comedic" value) of 2010. Whenever people (or his "friends") mispronounce his name, he's like "Get my name f-ing right! ", It's annoying as hell.

No one cares about what your name is Stephen! You say you want to change your name but if you do, it will still be spelled the same way! It will still be pronounced wrong! Get over it!

I guess all of you who voted for him hate Butch too, huh?

Well, nothing about him really makes me dislike his character. But since he stopped Cilan's "EVALUATING TIME! " I kinda respect the man! Right on, Stephen <3 Favorite B/W character due to that.

I don't mind Stephan. At least I know how to say his name right. At least he is better than Ash and Serena. He is like Ira Gamagori from Kill la Kill.

24 Clemont Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. ...read more.

HE IS NOT FUNNY EVERYTHING BEFORE HIM WAS FUNNY and now one of my favourite parts of Pokemon. Prepare for trouble and make it double to protect the world from devastation to unite all peoples within our nation. to denounce the evils of truth and love to extend our rech to the stars above. Jessie. James. team rocket blasts off at the speed of light. Surrender now or prepare to fight.

Annoying voice, annoying attitude.

Seriously, he whines all the time, and with the voice actor sucking so bad it makes it worse. Also his whole repeating "The future is now thanks to science" is already more drawn out than Team rocket's daily intro.

Of course I've a remake with a black hair and his name is... JOSE SANTAMARIA, based on Sergey Surkov, who in real is current top Professional Latin dancers!

In Anime itself, I've never see this boy as a good replacement of Brock (And that's why I've never remade Brock)

Take Clemont off the list! He's awesome, he's cute, handsome, protective, motherly, and nerdy. His inventions explode and it's funny.

25 Tracey

Who in the world could just sit there and take pictures all day seriously I would be bored out of my mind trying to do that tracey doesn't seem to be living a very interesting life by doing that.

Do people hate him just because he replaced Brock? That alone isn't enough to consider him one of the worst Pokemon characters...

Tracey is worst character! He is so annoying! And he replaced Brock!?!?!?! What! Brock was one of the best characters! I hate him and everyone else does too!

He is just a boring character that has no impact on the series whatsoever. If he has no impact, just leave him out of the series. Just please.
