Best Reasons to Hate Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 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

Most Fandoms are already like that. - RCrow

2 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.

Pokemon is reallly boring it makes me want to make a noose out of my cards and hang my self.

3 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

These opinions suck there is no solid reasoning and it kinda sounds racist towards Asians this list is just a dumb reason to convince people to hate a good franchise

That is a pretty stupid argument - RCrow

4 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

How is this a bad thing - RCrow

5 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

I was addicted...until I saw Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon and I say, now what? Pokemon is a scam, lets start Tamagotchi just because it went with my emulators and bootleg packs, and relax playing some old goodies, like Super Mario World, Mother or why not 7 Grand Dad I don't care I have it. - Loosername

It's not overrated, it's popular for a reason. Because it's pretty good, while I'm not obsessed, I think it's pretty good.
I can understand if the fandom is a problem, but then again, every, and I mean EVERY fandom has some terrible people.

6 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

We have to still remember that it is a kids anime. Honestly I could care less about it. I have Assassination Classroom!

7 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.

And what have you done in your life that's so interesting. Pokemon is fun.

How about u think of the game instead of a stupid anime

8 Genwunners

Oh god

GEN FOUR BOYZ! - Loosername

One of the few reasons why I don't want to be in the fandom anymore.

90s = always

9 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

A lot of characters don’t age - RCrow

10 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.

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.

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.

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

The Contenders

11 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

12 Every game is the same

The formula hasn't been changed in a significant way in 30 years. And no, that does not mean they got it flawlessly on their first try you idiotic fanboys. It means their fanbase has made them immune to change.

At the below comment, the new Sun and Moon games are completely different from the games preceding them

Have you ever heard of sun and moon - RCrow

Lol tell that to sun and moon - Blueberrycheerios

13 Because it copied Magic: The Gathering

Pokemon is a completely different thing than Magic

They are both very different franchises - RCrow

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.

14 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

15 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!

16 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...

17 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?

Now your just making pointless arguments who cares if it has a Minecraft Mod - RCrow

18 It has a dark side to it

Jessie & James and meowth they have a dark side there not friendly I don't care they changed way can ash just leave them along to die and be a friend's there enemies and you know it

It forces animals to fight, stuffs them in a ball, feeds them ONE nasty berry a day then claims himself has a Pokemon trainer. That's animal abuse.

What the hell do ya mean ba drugs?

Sure everything has a dark side to it. Only with pokedex entries though. Animal abuse is not a part of it. I bet u have never played the games or watched because
1) Ash n co. have saved their Pokemon risking their lives and have also saved many other countless Pokemon which they never see again. Yeah, sure, totally animal abuse.

2) Obviously you don't have any idea on the number Pokemon which need happiness and affection to evolve. And Pokemon LIKE to fight, they're not animals! (It says so in the official website I am not making things up) yeah,sure forced fighting. And I have no idea what youmean by steroids.

19 Gives kids the wrong idea

If they see that their favorite character is going on a big journey, won't it just encourage them to run away?

Every hater sucks

It's plain dumb

Haters/PETA: MERGERD AMINAL ABOOSE THE KILL ECH ODER! (even thought fainting and dying are very different)

Reality: main characters friend: POKEMON ARE FRIENDS WITH HUMANS!

And this is how you know haters have never played a game. - Blueberrycheerios

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.
