Best Reasons to Hate Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Genwunners

Oh god

90s = always

2 Ash never wins a league.

Because then the show would end because then ash's journey will end.

He wins the league in orange islands

Yeah, wonder why. - PokemonGOSucks

3 It has no character development

Ashes father isn't even seen EVER. Also there are too many people in the games, books, movies, T.V. shows, etc. and don't even get me started on the numbers of Pokémon there are ( it's more than 9000 ( anime reference there anyone ) ).

4 Never ends

Other anime ends but Pokemon keeps on going on and on. It's so ANNOYING. It's probably because it needs to get more fans.

I second these!


Honestly I Never Liked The New Seasons Of Pokemon! Honestly It Goes ON AND ON AND UGH SO ANNOYING
It's So Boring!

5 The fan base

The fan base for this show and all the other animes are just horrid stupid people. They always curse at you and tell you to kill yourself if you don't like it or if you think American cartoons are better.

Going to post my opinion on this and as a fan its offensive and I make a big deal out of this and no one has helped since I told no one about it but saying its boring makes me feel bad who got hurt so not sure if I get banned but it is offensive and still people are voting that the fans have no lives and I don't agree so if your bashing this into other's faces than all I can say is get a life or keep it to yourself and whoever made this list should be ashamed - Masterofal

Thai isn't an important message but can this list be removed in any way it is the most offensive list to all pokemon fans and provides stupid reasons to hate a franchise and saying the fans have no life on internet is plain rude so if anyone is here please comment below

This is true go delete pokemon and make people rest then post it again please please please

6 It's overrated

Anime nuts always say Pokemon is an amazing show when it is really just a awful show with a bland plot and characters

I hate how everyone is obsessed with Pokemon, it's terrible.

Yeah, I agree. Literally everyone likes Pokemon. My friend was so addicted and desperate that he asked me if he could play Pokemon on my DS at school

How lame can it get I can't even understand the plot. those fans should get a life.

7 Ash doesn't age

How does his age, although annoying, have anything to do with an ENTIRE SERIES ALONE?! - 906389

There is sinister theory that ash doesn't age because he is in a coma. He thinks he is still ten and the whole adventure might just be his coma. - Ahleaxt

In 1998, Ash Ketchum was 10. In 2015, Ash is still 10.

I'll be honest, the show and real life, time does not work the same way, but ash should be at least be 18 years old right now, considering the time that was rounded up. - USGC

Let me get stuff straight, maybe each episode is a day in the Pokémon universe, and also I noticed ash's voice change from a little kid to a 14 year old.

8 Everyone is a loser

James is a crybaby & jessie was just a troubled loser and phoney in the world and meowth he was just a has been and Annoying and nobody likes ( boo ) why can they just hang themselfs and nobody will miss

I notice how the villans tendto have more power than the villans. More speciically, Arceus is a loser. Other than conquests, how many times did it get its behind beat. No seriously. Its pathetic. look at the jewl of life, the Soul Silver Arc of the manga. How about super mystery dungeon. It can't even protect the universe it created.

9 Awful voice-acting

The voice "acting" is horrendous for this show. Everything is badly dubbed and the voice "actors" put no emotion into anything they say, like most animes.

Ash's new voice gets on my nerves. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This a good reason to hate pokemon not by hating the fans

This is something wrong with the anime though this is in the games category... clearly this is everything wrong with the games, but everyone immediately assumed anime.

10 It's stupid

Ash is also stupid like at the first ever episode of pokemon... He is stupid

Jessie and James are stupid people they don't changed they just pretending to be nice and charade in this universe

Not to be rude to Pokemon fans but it's just plain STUPID I watched one episode of it and I hated it, it wasn't interesting, there was no emotion, and there wasn't anything that made me fangirl, love the show, and it just made me feel like I was dead and had no emotions.

This list is stupid

The Newcomers

? Over-defensive fanboys

How can anyone turn into a rabbid chimp trying when defending such a lame cartoon?

? Unlikable Characters

The Contenders

11 It sparked the creation of more animes

Another anime hate-list. And one thing, Pokemon didn't spark the creation of more anime. Anime has been being made from 1970s, and I don't see why a Kids anime show would spark the creation for more anime. And second thing, why would creation of more anime be considered as something bad? That's dumb. - Kiteretsunu

It's a bad thing because we now have more anime fans who mostly consist of complete retards. Pokemon may have not been the first anime but it was the one that popularized it. Pokemon started the anime fad and that's what I meant by that.

I have a life and I also have the right to make list of hating something just as much as someone has the right to like something. - YakkoWakkoDot

Some shows copied a terrible show, make your decisions

12 The fans have no lives

Most Pokemon fans dress up in Pokemon costumes and lip sync the Pokemon theme song. The Pokemon fans see it and cheer him or her on and then saying that this is the greatest thing on YouTube. They also get mad when people dislike those videos or when people dislike Pokemon in general.

True that... I was honestly obsessed with it for a couple months when I was like 7 and I once saw how many 20 and 30 year olds actually still liked this crap. It's fine when your young but you have to mature at some age.

This is on the list. On number one

The haters have no lives so F&$@ u a million times

13 Fosters stupidity of human race

Why would the pocket monsters talk and why would they yell out their name. Charecters are shallow and one-dimensional ( I understand it's a cartoon), the games are good collection games but they are based on the cartoon so the story remains shallow. So we all agreed to go down to the lowest denominator instead of trying to raise people up, to me that fosters human stupidity.

Um, I think you are the rebelious kind of person who will never watch /read / play the series no matter what I say. I guess you would have loved it if you had went with the flow.

1997 is the year when kids just got really stupid. Pokemon just came out then and for some reason most kids loved it. It made the kids who watched it brain dead with the bland animation and the stupid plot with the unoriginal design and names for the little monsters.

Games are not based off cartoons! :( The anime sucks, but the games are good, and have many types genres.

14 It killed hand-drawn animation

After the focus of animation was being focused on animes, American cartoons had animation provided by flash or CGI.

Animation is an art, Pokemon isn't. QUOTE

Actually, that's the princess and the frog. - Skullkid755

15 Boring

Since it's repetitive and it never bothers to change the storyline people who have a good taste in television know that this show got old in 1998 and it shouldn't still be on.

It's the same thing all the time-just throw the ball and a stupid Asian cat hops out. For 15 years

I do like anime but I think Pokemon is boring.

I remember at my school literally everybody even the teachers played Pokémon. I tried to play it but I got so bored in like 30 seconds.

16 It's story line sucks

The only thing the hero does is fight gym leaders, elite four, and villainous teams; basically, just fight differently designed and named trainers. WIth no variation whatsoever. They shake it up once in a blue moon with black and white, but are too lazy to build on it and go back to the same old gym leader plot.

Jessie suck as a performer she was just a faker performer I wish the audience will say Boo on her and she will be devastated whore

17 Because it copied Magic: The Gathering

Pokemon is a completely different thing than Magic

I absolutely agree. I don't understand people who compare this show with digimon either.


This may be a troll list(I'm not Goatworlds).Seriously.

18 It's just plain dumb

That is because in the Pokemon world, every body depends on Pokemon. It is just their way of life so leave em be. And by the way not all Pokemon say their names. Ever heard the team rocket Meoth, Togepi etc etc.

True it's just wasting your time

First of all Pokemon only say there names.Its gets tired of hearing pika pika pika! Secondly it doesn't make sense:Mom:Ok honey have fun with that living flamethrower that could kill you bye!

Yeah... Th names of some pokemon are not well thaught of like green ninja... I mean, it doesn't fit in w/ frokey nor froggadear...

19 It's a Minecraft mod now

Not everybody did. I am 100% sure on that. And let me get this straight. You hate Pokemon because Minecraft made it more popular?!? Oh ya, just for the sake of it, why not we mention the People who Eat Tasty Animals also? (PETA)

Some jackass though it would be a good idea to make a Pokemon mod in Minecraft. They did and now it's even more popular. It also doesn't help it that Minecraft YouTubers always reference it because it was there childhood. Please, Pinky And The Brain was out during that time too yet you choose to reference a piece of overrated garbage

What? So this is a good reason to hate something fans did?

20 People have their Pokemon fight for them

Look, just give the kid a katana, teach them how to use it, and give them a Pokemon, and they will be fine. Chaz from fantasy star iv was able to kill Dark Force (A badazz version of Dark Matter) even thougb he was only a few years older than the Pokemon protaganist! And don't give me no crap like "he had Elydsion", or "He was being helped by a cat-girl, a wizard, a robot, and someone else", because that's what in talking about! I don't expect an 11 year old to go balls to the wall against Arceus, but I AM saying to get powerful Pokemon to help!

But what about the wild encounters? If this ten-year-old kid didn't have a Pokémon to protect them, they'd be dead.
