Top 10 Worst Things About Pokemon

These are just a few things about Pokemon that tend to irritate people. PLEASE vote AND share your opinion!
The Top Ten
1 Ash never ages

People need to quit whining about this. Pokemon is a children's anime. At least in xy we had Alain as a more mature side character in the specials. He's even showed up in the main series as a nice contrast with Ash. I look forward to seeing them go up against each other in the Team Flare arc.

There is a reason why Ash never ages. When he started his journey he wished on a Jirachi to go on his journey forever until he catches all the Pokemon. So in conclusion, Ash and his friends earned the ability to never age.

2 The TPCi voice actors

Their voices don't fit the ages of the characters, their acting is monotone and flat consistently, and they generally have egos large enough that gravity can't bring them down.

They suck so much I can't even fathom it. Like do they actually think this is a realistic voice? Nobody would talk like these whiny 5 year olds in real life.

Horrible for 7+ years and counting: ruined Ash, Brock, TR, and everyone else in the English dub!

3 Overrated Pokemon

Yes, Charizard is just too overrated. People who say the he isn't overrated is just proving even more that Charizard is overrated, by saying that. See? Plus, now Charizard has TWO megas. That is REALLY unfair. Charizard already had annoyingly enough attention, and now Charizard fans are going nuts. Bulbasaur needs more attention, Bulbasaur is more helpful than Charmander in the gyms. Ugh, it's just grinding my gears even more than Klink! Just ONE stone edge, and it's goodbye Charizard.

Yes, Charizard is barely overrated, I never tried one. But I tried ONLY once. Also pikachu, it's annoying. His voice, it's hard to evolve overrated pokemon. But not lucario, lucario's already evolved from an underrated pokemon. So I think Lucario is only the good Overrated pokemon.

4 Serena's obsession with ash

I would shake my head opposingly, but really think about this. If Ash was aware that he had a love-struck stalker traveling with him, how would he react? What would he feel? The idea, at least to me, would be to ask them to talk. Even if he didn't know, Ash should've been uneasy to be around her. She's not well mentally!

This should be higher. I've never wanted to slap anyone like I want to slap her! She is so stupid and just downright pathetic. Too bad she's not smart enough to figure out Ash cares more about Pikachu than anyone else. I'd love to see her crushed by that revelation. I'm a non-shipper but I'd love to see Ash get with any other girl just so I could see Serena make a fool out of herself out of jealousy. Stupid, shallow bitch!

5 You want to evolve? Trade!

I know this makes no sense. Pokemon existed before people so how would they be able to evolve ONLY through trading. It makes no sense because the wild Pokemon can't evolve!

I spent some time leveling up my Swirlix, only to find out about trade evolution. Big waste of my time, and it's a stupid concept right from the beginning. Goodbye, Slurpuff-- I'll never catch them all.

If you trade a pokemon, it's basically never coming back, so I just wouldn't bother with trade evolution.

6 Competitive players
7 Critical hit!

This was a major problem in Diamond and Pearl. This was back when crits still did double damage. If you watch any Sinnoh nuzlocke, about half of the dead Pokemon someone had released died to a critical hit.

When you are:
"I am gonna catch it!
I am gonna catch it!
One more move."
And then critical hit...


Seriously. Why does this annoy u

8 Pikachu loses to wild Pokemon and weak Pokemon

My theory for this happening is that Pikachu's levels reset after every region. Think about it. It was around the end of DP when Pikachu defeated Regice, and around the beginning of the Unova anime when Pikachu lost to Snivy. That's why I think that Pikachu's levels reset after every region.

Another annoying thing is that Pikachu keeps beating over powered Pokemon, but loses to people who have never battled before. Either that's being kind or something's wrong.

Shouldn't Pikachu be at level 100 after 10+ years? But then we watch it lose to Water-Type Pokemon in the first gym. HOW DUMB IS THAT?

9 Elite four and full restores

This is so annoying! I can't believe that they use full restores in the games, but you can consider yourself lucky if you ever see someone use a full restore (or anything as a matter of fact) in the anime.

The Elite four isn't really that annoying I love a good challenge (even though My Mega Charizard X) In lets go almost one shots the entire of Lances team the full restores are annoying.

Okay everyone who thinks this is annoying is full of crap. First off, we use full restores and revives all the time and lots of it. The elite four only use 2-3 full restores a battle while we use like 5 calm down you people we heal our Pokémon a lot Mores

10 Day-Care Man doesn't know where the Egg came from

It is annoying and when I post this, I'm 9. The day care man is an idiot. Well of course it came from the Pokemon, the day care man really is stupid.

Day Care Man: While we were taking care of your poke'mon we found an egg. We have no idea where it came from, but please take good care of it. Me: IDIOT!

*Dropped ditto and pikachu at the daycare* 5 mins later... "I don't know where this egg came from. Maybe there's a Xerneas inside." What do you expect, old man?!?!

The Contenders
11 The show repeats itself

I can almost guarantee that these things will happen next in the show over time. Pignite is going to evolve into Emboar and not listen to Ash until Ash breaks down and cries and blames himself, somehow they're going to say that the Toxic badge is not an official Unova Gym Badge and make Ash go get the Legend Badge, They'll find out that Iris is related to that Gym and Ash will have to battle her, and later on Cilan will go and become a chef. The End.

It's just tue same thing, team rocket tries to get pikachu (even though there are literaly hundreds of other pokemon to capture) aand then gets rekt... by pikachu

12 Zubats Zubat, known in Japan as Zubat, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This is what my code would look like after the unova victory road:
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!

Running out of repels in the middle of Rock Tunnel without a Pokemon that knows Flash. Zubats everywhere. I'm Dead.

Zubat there are annoying they follow me around everywhere I was just trying to catch and onix or graveler when this bat had to torture me :(.

13 What are the hamburgers made of!?

They probably kill Miltank and Tepig to make hamburgers. Then, sometimes, you see those Pokemon eat hamburger. Cannibals.

I think one of the Pokedex entries says that Cherrim or something like that has a certain taste. Doesn't that mean that someone had to EAT one to find that out?!

14 Whoever Ash travels with doesn't have a last name

This always bothered me. When they say that the winner is Dawn from Twinleaf Town, there could always be two Dawns. How do they know which one is which?!

Hello! There's Todd Snap and Tracey Sketchit...Gary Oak, of course (not a traveling companion, but still an important friend of Ash)

I always thought that Alexander would be a good last name for Clemont.

15 Gym leader uses potion

Me: Yay! You're about to die, yay! (Presses weak move to save PP)
Gym leader: Sorry. (Uses Hyper Potion)
Me: Nu! (Causes tiny amount of damage)
Gym leader: (Kills my Pokemon)

16 Pikachu's annoying voice

Pikachu is the most cutest little thing EVER! He is like a little child that learned how to talk. His voice is just cute and adorable.

17 Fighting a Legendary and forgetting to save before

Just today I forgot to save before capturing groudon in pokoemn emerald and I accidentally killed it

18 Team Rocket
19 Evasion/Accuracy
20 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.

Everyone says; "Pikachu's so strong! " "I'm SO gonna beat you with my pikachu! " "You cheated with your charizard! Because my pikachu would kill it strait."

They obviously haven't played Pokemon.

22 Iris always calls Ash a little kid

Now THIS annoys the crap out of me. I mean seriously? Yelling at him for being happy he has six badges? Where're YOUR badges Iris? In fact, where's that Haxorus? Or Dragonite that listens to you? Or ANYTHING?!

Hey iris, who's the one who can't evolve Axew?

23 How hard it is to evolve Feebas

Well they are running out of ideas for Pokemon! Feebas is an ugly COPY of magikarp and milotic is a RIPOFF from Gyarados! Oops just told a big secret to the world

I've heard that there is only a 6 in 400 chance to evolve Feebas into Milotic. The worst part:Feebas is ugly and knows splash.

How everyone else can memorize all these Pokemon? I haven't the slightest clue.

24 The fanbase

I am so sick of fans that treat anyone who doesn't like all of the same things they do like they're not human. Grow the F up already.

Haters of people who have been fans since the 90s when it started.

25 Genwunners

All the new games are exactly the same as the old games just different graphics.
Trolls call people who only played the original games losers when they don't get that maybe they have grown out of playing and watching Pokémon and don't think it's the same as the past.

Nope when Pokemon Go was released many said "The 90s are back".
Before Pokemon Go it was forgotten except for the internet and video game magazines.

These clowns haven't played a new Pokémon game since Oasis's Wonderwall was relevant, and then they bash the newer gens like they've played them. Losers, right? Just refer to whoever put "all the new characters and Pokémon suck" on this list as an example.
