Top 10 Saddest Moments from the Pokemon Anime


The Top Ten

1 Misty and Brock Leave Misty and Brock Leave

Don't forget to check out their return episodes in Sun and Moon anime. I didn't like the episode when Misty left it will always be my least favorite because Misty's sisters were not letting her travel with Ash.

Misty was almost the best pokemon character ever! BRING HER BACK! BRING HER BACK!

This is bye far the most saddest for me. Bring back Misty and Brock

I grew up with Misty and Brock even though he returned in Hoenn and Sinnoh

2 Bye Bye Butterfree Bye Bye Butterfree

The first of many emotional times Ash has had to say goodbye to one of his Pokemon. - egnomac

Every time I watch this scene, I cry for the whole day

This episode made me cry

Caterpie was the first Pokemon Ash caught. After the full eveloution to Butterfree, Ash releases Butterfree into the wild. Yay, dumb Ash!

3 Pikachu and the Other Pokemon Cry After Ash is Turned to Stone

I was cing and crying then what?... I got my life back when Ash woke up, but seriously. Why on earth, WHY the hell were the clones crying. And then that MEW... guess what? Was LITERALLY LAUGHING. Like WHY the freak? Dude the anime is full of idiots...

Only moment in pokemon I cried at. - flash101

This is just sad. - RiverClanRocks

4 Tommy's Parents Almost Die Tommy's Parents Almost Die

Who's this tommy?

The kid from the episode the kangaskan kid. - egnomac

5 Pickachu's Goodbye

Why the heck did DUMB Ash Run from CUTE Pikachu

Sad episode where I thought Pikachu would stay with the other wild Pikachu. Ash"s Pikachu returned to Ash so heart warming.

6 Goodra Leaves

The first sad anime episode I watched 😭😭😭

7 Ash Loses to Ritchie After Charizard Refuses to Battle

After everything Ash did for Charizard saving him from an abusive trainer and saved him from death this is the gratitude he gets from Charizard by costing him one of the most important matches of his young career. - egnomac

8 Jessie and Blissey V 2 Comments
9 Stoutland Dies

Here is why this made me cry first I had a dog die and Scotland is the dog Pokemon and seeing Litten cry is so sad and why is ash being a jerk by not comforting Litten after his Pokemon dies and this is probably the first time a Pokemon actually dies

It made me cry not only it is sad to see stoutland die but it is also hard to see litten grief stricken

That episode made me cry. That poor litten.

I feel so bad for poor Litten. It is not it's fault...

10 Serena Cries After Failing to Make It Past the First Round of the Pokemon Showcase Serena Cries After Failing to Make It Past the First Round of the Pokemon Showcase

Serena annoys me. She cries easily after losses. Take Jessie for example, she has gone through lots of worse things throughout her life. Serena needs some backbone. And people call Jessie selfish, why do you think she is how she is today? I can definitely see how most people watching the show are young as young people don't understand complicted characters with complicated emotions. Well, usually.

I feel bad for Serena, this was suppose to be her big debut and one mistake completely cost her the first round. - egnomac

She is a strong character

The Episode 60 of the Pokemon XY Series make me cry, and I decided to support Serena.
