Top Ten Reasons Why the Pokemon Charizard is Not Overrated

HeavyDonkeyKong

The Top Ten

1 It's Not the Only Pokemon Who Has Two Mega Evolutions

Obviously people haven't heard of Mewtwo, who also I guilty of this. So what if Mewto is a Legendary? Rayquaza, Groudon, and Kyogre are also legendaries and I don't see them with two Mega Evolutions! It's one of the originals? Wel, if that is the case, then how come Mew, Moltres, Articuno, and Zapdos don't have two Mega Eolutions? They don't even have one! - HeavyDonkeyKong

2 It Gets Way Too Much Hate

About 70% of people say he is overrated. I say he is underrated because most people think almost EVERYONE is a Charizard fanboy and that is why they don't like him.

Charizard doesn't deserve hate. No, I'm not a butthurt Charizard fan. I'm telling the truth about the most 'overrated' and over hated Pokemon. It seems that whenever something is popular for a while, people seem to move away from it. Take Umbreon for example. Most newer Pokemon fans or younger people seem to prefer Umbreon to the other revolutions. Trust me, I was one of them. Now my favorite is Leafeon, because I saw how amazing it was, and how many reasons I could come up with to put it at my number one favourite eeveelution.

Now Charizard has the same case as Umbreon, besides Umbreon still being more overrated. People seem to think that if a Pokemon is popular, it shouldn't be loved, which isn't really fair. I myself am not a huge fan of the aka to starters, but Charizard still holds a place in my heart. And no, I didn't choose it in generation one at first.

Most people are moving away from the crowd to praise Blastoise for being 'omigodsewkewl! '. People HATE ...more

Did any other pokemon get this much hate for a 4x weakness?

This site is the perfect example. Look at the list of weakes tpokemon. CHarizard's number 3 iirc! - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 It's Not the Only Pokemon With a Quadruple Weakness to Rock Type Pokemon Moves

VIvilloinn, Moltres, Talonflame, Volcorona, FLetchinder, etc. They all have a 4x weakness to rock/a quadruple weakness to rock too! As well! Too! - HeavyDonkeyKong

4 It's Not the Weakest Pokemon

He isn't the strongest pokemon. - shawnmccaul22

I can't believe that this Pokemon is ncurrently number 3 on the lis tof weakes tpokemon iirc. So wha tif it has a bad rock weakness? It is actually viable in RU and NU and there are TONS of Pokemon and I meant TONS of Pokemon the taren't even viable in PU! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 It's Design is Not Terrible

Being "generic"doesn't make a design terrible. Rayquaza'sdesign is also a bit "generic" because its like a "generic" serpent draogn but people still like the tdesign right? But people still liek Rayquaza's design right? Yes! They do! Or at least I think that they do! I also like Rayquaza's design! Too! but I also like Charizard's design! Too! - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 Ash Ketchum's Charizard Defeating Gary Oak's Blastoise Actually Did Make Sense

Ash Ketchum's CHarizard had recieved special training at the Charicific Valley whuile Gary Oak's Blastoise was never ever confirmed to ave recieved any kind of special training. Obviously Ash Ketchum's Charizard was indeed still a lot stronger than Gary Oak's Blastoise. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Charizard is Not the Only One of Ash Ketchum's Pokemon That Ash Ketchum Has Actually Brought Back Before

Quite a few of his Pokemon made their comebacks during the Sinnoh League. - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 It's Not the Mot Popular Pokemon Anymore

It never was. Pikachu was always more popular. Now Charizard is overshadowed and despised by everyone. Poor Charizard.

How is Venusaur more popular?

Give the no. 1 overrated rank to Greninja - yungstirjoey666

It's not even th mos tpopular starter Pokemon anymore. If anything, Venusaur and Blaziken are! - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 The Original TCG Card Costing So Much Makes Sense

Obviously, the rare the card, the more expensive it is. - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 It's On the Cover of Pokemon Red

Blastoise and Venusaur have covers too. As does Pikachu. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Yes, But people as kids would obviously want to pick the one with the "coolest" Pokemon. When you first look at it. You would probably want to choose the dragon. even though his design isn't that great.

The Contenders

11 You Can't Say "Charizard is a Good Pokémon" Anymore Without Being Bombarded with Charizard Haters.

See "best Pokémon" or "best fire Pokémon" and you'll see what I mean.

12 It's the Only Pokémon that Has Its Own Hatebase
13 It is Overshadowed by Blastoise and Venusaur
14 It is Number Three on the Weakest Pokémon List
