Top 10 Reasons Why Pokemon Is Overrated


The Top Ten

1 Charizard 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 more.

Charzard is so overrated porygon z is better

Most overrated Pokemon ever!

Um... Excuse Me Sir But You Do Know That One Overrated Pokemon Character Isn't Gonna Be Enough To Make The Entire Show Overrated. Just Saying.

Well at least he's better than Pikachu

2 The Anime

I don't hate it that much, but there are so many things wrong with the anime. One of the biggest problems is the ship wars that occur, especially since the protagonist is an oblivious idiot. - yungstirjoey666

It's the same thing over and over again and its always the same. The first anime was great honest but until now nothing changed, Ash is still 10, Pikachu still doesn't want to evolve and Team Rocket always fail trying to capture Pikachu

I quit watching the anime when I started watching Jewelpet, which is a much better anime. - ShinyEevee101

Will somebody please stop making these silly shows, already?! I'm already getting sick of it!

3 Pikachu and the Nintendo DS

The stereotypical Pokemon. This is the only Pokemon most people know and he looks like the stereotype he is. (Now going on to ds) the Nintendo ds was home to all the overrated Pokemon games (diamond, pearl, heart gold, soul silver, black, white, black 2, white 2. ) and they are all the same game with slight changes to gyms and stuff. - Garfieldtop10s

Can somebody just give up the pikachus, they are way overrated and the only reason is the anime (by the way the anime is terrible) because of ash and it's not his fault he wanted a squirtle, it's prof. Oaks fault, because he had to give it to [REDACTED] GARY!


That was over ten years ago. Sun and Moon confirmed.

Will you guys shut up?! Creatures inc. finally unvieled omega ruby and alpha sapphire because they want you to shut up! HOENN confirmed is such an overrated meme. - Garfieldtop10s

I never heard of this meme

The Hoenn trumpet memes are better. Or they Emerald Remake memes.

5 Missingno

People seriously like a pile of garbage data. - Garfieldtop10s

6 Gametheory

On the topic of conspiracy... Pokemon conspiracies on this channel are more common than ever. - Garfieldtop10s

Game Theory got sick of Pokemon in every episode.

They're ruining our fun with the plot twist theories - Ohno

Wel, Game Theory ruined Mario, and made Luigi overrated, and are in love FNAF, so...

7 Conspiracy

Learn to spell theories, idiot.

Hey, that was a typo (not intentional). - Garfieldtop10s

There's only 87425-/84756 theries nowadays. - Garfieldtop10s

8 Thomas Sander's #pokemonpranks

He's a guy on vine. These pranks are going viral now. - Garfieldtop10s

I think they're funny so shut your face.

9 Same Thing Every Year


That's why I replaced the video games, with the "Yo-Kai Watch" franchise!

The only thing I DO play, among "Pokemon" games, is the TRADING CARD GAME; enough' said.

Yeah, no kidding. In other words, it's ' repetitive and worse than boring. Therefore, it should be canceled for good.

At least Call of Duty has different modes in some of them.

Pokemon has way more features than Call of Duty, and has a bigger replay value, due to infinite ways to play the game - Manowar9

*Pokemon GO - venomouskillingmachine

10 Pokemobs

A Pokemon mod in an overrated game (Minecraft) makes the original overrated. - Garfieldtop10s

I don't even know how they're underrated!

The Contenders

11 Ash is such a loser

it is true



HE SHOUDL NEVER BE PRAISED FOR THAT! >:( - The Ultimate Daredevil, waithing to get beat up by Genwunners and in case they do, I physically murder them with one strike!

12 It overshadows Digimon

Digimon is better but, less popular.

Would everybody just SHUT UP about pokemon vs digimon I getting old. 😒

13 It's just so repetitive


14 All the Memes

They are not coming to mind right now, but there is a ton of them right now. - Garfieldtop10s

So I herd you liek Mudkipz?

15 The Fanbase

Too many wars going on - yungstirjoey666

16 It's boring

This show is more boring than watching pancakes spin around in the microwave or even ratatoing

17 Team Rocket constantly showing up and wasting Ash's time and the episode time

It is awfully stupid that they appear LIKE EVERY epISODe! + They always lose... why waste Ashes' time? why not have a different villain for a change? Team Rocket isn't even a TEAM! They are just like 3 people... Such a GOOD team too. WASTE OF TIME!

Have you ever heard the name GIOVANNI? Do you know who created mewtwo? - Jeydi

18 The plot revolves around enslaving animals and making them fight other animals against their will

The truth is, Pokemon LIKE to fight. If you played the games (which some of you who believe Pokemon is animal abuse didn't and don't know what it is AT ALL) you NEED to increase your Pokemon's happiness by making them battle. It's how it works in the Pokemon universe. If this rumor was true, your Pokemon would leave you if you battle with them too much. Besides, you show them LOVE, which means they'd do ANYTHING for you. This rumor is nonsensical. Play the actual games before you say something absurd like this. - Ohno

Why would Ash Ketchup do that? Aren't they suppose to be our friends?

19 It won't go away

True, and it won't for a very long time. It is a successful franchise, and more Pokemon will continue into be made for years to come. Also that is not a good reason why it is overrated, maybe annoying would be the better word? Anyway, I love Pokemon, so...

Because Pokemon was more of a 90s thing.

20 It's old
21 Too many Pokemon

How is that bad? It just makes the game more interesting. - Ohno

22 Card Trading
23 You can't find at least 1 person in a single day not wearing a Pokemon shirt
24 Gardevoir Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
25 Not enough evolutions

They really need to add more forms and evolutions to each pokemon so they can be more powerful than they are. Comparing to other some anime characters such as Tatsumi or WarGreymon, a lot of pokemon such as Charizard and Blastoise are childsplay. They should also add alternate forms to each pokemon to make them more diverse in different environmental conditions.
