Top Ten Stupidest Pokemon

The Pokemon that look the dumbest and act the stupidest.

The Top Ten

1 Magikarp Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

All hail magikarp for being able to beat all the legendaries at once with his ultimate move splash

Magikarp can't do anything except flop and jump!
Its super dumb!

Gyrados is cool.. But magikarp? Wasting time to catch it just catch gyrados..Z..

This little MAGIC KARP! (;) is beautiful. I’d keep 500 of these boys and then wait for them to evolve

2 Zubat Zubat Zubat, known in Japan as Zubat, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Zubat is the WORST! Useless to capture, weak in battle, but it has that attack ' SUPERSONIC! You fight 10 million of these jerks every time you enter a cave, and every single time they confuse your leading Pokemon, causing endless battles as your Pokemon hurts itself and Zubat whittles down its strength with tackle or growl.

Zubat is so stupid! Can't learn many good moves until he is fully evolved but fully evolving it can be hard for certain people.

I don't know why they think it's okay to keep putting Zubat in the new games. We've already caught it, in like every other predecessor, why would we care about catching it in the eighth game we see it?

Screw you Zubat.

3 Jynx Jynx

When I was younger I hated this and Mr. Mime so much I got a card of jynx one time and ripped it. Ita so god damn ugly

We don't have enough of those stupid overpowered Psychic-types. We need another one. Hey, I have an idea! Let's make it both racist and sexist!


Ugh, tell me about it. Absol is much better than this piece of trubbish. - Absolite

Pokemon that look like people are mostly all pointless and weird looking, hands down the coolest pokemon are based on real animals.

Jynx is so racist and sexist, I don't know what was going through the creators heads when they made this. Well, GOOD JOB. You succeeded in making a Pokemon which is yet another OP psychic type with a crappy design. *sarcastic clap* Good job!

4 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

You people are totally wrong because pikachu is awesome oh and he's really cute

Well there is a reason I find it kinda annoying that every time ash finds a rival and the rival just got a new starter from the Professor, here comes Ash "I challenge you" he throws out pikachu and pikachu ha a draw or loses! We all know that any of ash's Pokemon would be able to beat it. But no... Pikachu could never beat a new starter Pokemon! It's SO FUSTRATING!

Appear every where. I pick a new manga, he get the biggest spot light, a new anime happen (generations and other specials) he get the spotlight. It's become so annoying seeing this.

He looks cute but he's an ass with trash attitude and annoying sometimes.

Pikachu is an idiot. Whoever put him on here is epic. Oh, and you know the banned episode of Pokemon with porygon in? It was pikachus fault. If that doesn't tell you anything, look at its base stats.

5 Unown Unown Unown is a Psychic type Pokémon from the Johto region, taking on the form of letters and punctuation. It is often considered the weakest Pokémon, with low stats and access to only one move, Hidden Power (which can be learnt by nearly every Pokémon anyway)

Unown is very stupid it can oly learn one move hidden power this is the worst one ever

This thing is absolutely idiotic. I have no idea why this hideous creature even exists. What am I talking about?

I'm talking about how Unown is supposed to look like the Latin Alphabet, even though it was created in Japan. You know, where characters are used instead of letters? Terrible idea. Just terrible.

1 Bad Move, bad stas, bad type, this thing blows. It also creates a highly inconvenient form of Code Writing. Even worse than Magikarp, who gets a great evolution that is severely allergic to electricity. Pursuit it to death and you are fine.

Looks weird and it is stupid as well

6 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime

What's up with this guy? First of on my HeartGold game, I encountered a FEMALE Mr. MIME! Why's it called a Mr. Mime if it can be female? I don't understand! Second off, it's kinda creepy looking...

We need a new Pokemon... Let's just make a human which has physchic powers that can be used for basically a little mind game. - TheGamehero

Mr. Mime is basically just a human playing a clown in the circus. Pokemon are supposed to relate to real life animals besides from humans. Also, the gender ratio of Mr. Mime (emphasis on mr. ) is 50% male, 50% female. This means that half of these "misters" are females.

One word Creepy

7 Weedle Weedle Weedle is a worm-like Pokémon in the Pokémon series. It evolves to Kakuna, which evolves to Beedrill. Its name may come from "worm" and "needle", or "weed" and "needle", referencing that it chews weeds, helping gardeners.

I just agreed with this one to comment. Weedle may have crappy stats, but compared to Caterpie, it knows poison sting. Yeah. What does Caterpie know? Tackle? Imagine a caterpillar tackling ANYTHING! You touch a Weedle, you're poisoned and you slowly die. Besides, it evolves eventually into Beedrill. It may have crappy stats/moves, but it looks so cool that it's one of my personal favorites.

Worse than Caterpie when you need to battle one because Caterpie can't poison you, Weedle has got to be at least the stupidest bug Pokémon ever. First of all it's ugly. Secondly, it's weak, and it's favorite thing to do is poison you. Last but not least, you probably hate this thing! - turtwig

Weedle can poison you while caterpie just farts through its antenna

Just STUPID - AliciaMae

8 Goldeen Goldeen

Hmm, we need a new Pokemon. Lets think up of a quick design. Oh! I know! Let's put a horn on a fish and call it original!

Pointless Pokemon even worse evolution. I don't even like Goldfish their like the slaves of the fish world absolutely useless!

Goldeen can't do anything! I don't even know why it was make, really!

Misty’s Goldeen be like... goldeen, goldeen, goldeen, goldeen, goldeen.

9 Metapod Metapod

There is nothing worse than fighting multiple Metapods in a row using harden over and over until they take virtually no damage.

Actually, everyone who said that it only knows harden, that's only if you catch it as a Metapod. I'm replaying Leaf Green and I caught it as a Caterpie and it of course didn't forget all its moves before evolving. Now I have an amazing Butterfree - awesomeyveltal

Metapod should be 3rd stupidest Pokemon.

10 Meowth Meowth Meowth is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Meowth first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. In addition, it was one of the Pokémon to get an Alolan variant. It later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff more.

You know what doesn't make sense? In the anime Team Rocket was always thinking about paychecks. Why didn't they just get Meowth to learn Pay Day?! Now instead of doing that, they are in stupid Black and White and aren't even funny anymore! What happened to "We're Blasting of Again! "?

Jessie and James have asked Meowth to learn Pay Day before, but the thing is, because Meowth walks and speaks English, he can't learn any more moves.

Meowth in team rocket is amazing and an awesome manipulator.

But seriously, black and white? Seriously?

I am a HUGE fan of the Pokemon anime, especially the villains, but what happened to the awkward, pathetic, failers, that Team Rocket used to be? Now they jetpack off instead of blasting off. Its sad.

Yeah definitely just learn Payday 2 and rob some banks. And MEOWTH is so dumb. But then again, he is smarter then Jessie and James and probably the best in there team.

I love meowth people hate on him because he’s part of team Rocket but he’s better than Serena or Magicarp -Galaxy Meowth

The Contenders

11 Luvdisc Luvdisc

If it had evolved into Alomomola, then it would have some point in being a Pokmon. Poor Luvdisc, it will never be loved for its disc-ness.

One of the few pokemon I think is pointless, Luvdisc has no good stats except for speed, and good speed is pointless is you don't have decent attack/sp attack/support moves to back it up. It looks both stupid and unoriginal (love heart pokemon? Sure, why not? ) and can't evolve into anything good (unlike magikarp and zubat).
Magikarp is Game Freak making fun of their own game mechanics, and I can't hate Zubat after Crobat helped me immensely thoughout Pokemon Pearl.
Both Delibird and Unown are also stupid and worse pokemon to use, but Luvdisc don't even have a point behind it.

Okay... This thing is pathetic. It gets the ability Swift Swim to pointlessly boost its somewhat passable speed while possessing awful defenses and attacking stats while learning a grand total of 2 different types of moves excluding Hidden Power (Water and Ice moves). And by the way... WHERE THE HELL IS UNOWN ON THIS LIST!

Why does this pokemon even exist

12 Psyduck Psyduck

Psyduck is a total idiot. I don't know why I caught one. It never listens to misty.
This will always be a frustration

If he gets a major headache he can use very powerful powers, but in pokemon snap he can faint pretty easily on the river level if you hit him with o pester ball

Come on, Psyduck is funny in the anime, can learn Psychic and evolve into something cool, and here you guys are talking about all the bad things about it

It's just stupid

V 28 Comments
13 Spoink Spoink

Seriously how did they think up this pokemon? It is so stupid and it is also terrible in battle. (and by the way why isn't psyduck on this list)

If it stops jumping it dies, yet in the game cube games they show it fallinf down when it faints. Now you have to feel guilty every time you beat it because you know you just made its heart stop.

He is the funnest thing I have ever seen every time I see him he makes me piss my self but you have to love him

He is my mom... step-mom DUN DUN DUN!

14 Patrat

A patrat is one of the first Pokemon you see and why would anyone catch it. Only an idiot would, or Ash.

People always say abiding are ugly...they've never seen Patrat.

It evolves into serial killer and its on steroids

Pokemon is no place for drug abuse.

15 Bidoof Bidoof

Why the heck is Bidoof on here twice? Haha, poor Bidoof. I'm still trying to figure out why some Pokemon are on here though... especially Oshawott... spelled WRONG. Some people just over-analyze about what the Pokemon CAN'T do, and they don't pay more attention to what it CAN do.

This is my least favorite Pokemon. At least Magikarp has the excuse of being a floppy fish. Bidoof is one of the first Pokemon you see in diamond and pearl and its definitely the worst. - ScorpDevil4

What the hell, man? Is Bidoof that bad, that he has to be here THREE times? Obviously. The only good thing he's got going for him is that OP Moody ability, and there are better Pokemon that have that. We asked for a Pokemon, not a teenage excuse for a Pokemon.

Bidoof is way better than all Pokemon ever - PhantomPowah

16 Snorlax Snorlax

Snorlax is amazing. I love this Pokemon. How on earth is he even on this list to begin with?

Snorlax is a great Pokemon. Why is he on here on this list? He is one of my favorite tanks.


I love snorlax, he can learn many different moves of different types, and he's really good and hits hard. I don't get why he's on this list - lynxa

17 Koffing Koffing

What happens if Koffing actually coughs?

Explosion. Don't need to say anything else, do I?

I blows up and kills itself.

Dude... Do I Have To Talk About Weezing? It's a poison balloon that explodes and has pretty good stats...

Ew it's hideous. I don't get why some people find it cute, it's so dumb and ugly. - lynxa

18 Muk Muk Muk, known in Japan as Betbeton, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I actually like muk. In the anime he is super cute. And in real life he would be almost impossible to kill.

Spell his name backwards

How can they call this an evolution to Grimer?! It's the exact same, just bigger and a darker color of purple. Everyone always complains about Garbodor, but this is a blob of slime.

But guys... I like trains

19 Starly Starly Starly is a flying-type Pokémon. It is classified as the Starling Pokémon. As evidenced in its Pokédex entry, Starly usually travels in large flocks.

Are you kidding me Starly is so cute and obviously the person who put him here hasn't the slightest idea how awesome Staraptor is!

Starly may be weak, but it's cute and evolves into a badass bird who will destroy you. I love Staraptor - lynxa

Really first pokemon you meet is a fing starkly practically he's every where. Is evolutions are way better

I love starkly he is so cute who is the poki hater ho put him here:(

20 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.


Extremely Overrated:He has a Horrible type Combo of fire and flying and can't even learn fly. a Pidgey can learn fly and fly you across the world but a charizard, no he is too weak to fly.

He is stupidly weak without mega evolving and I took my friends one out using rock slide and stealth rock.

Stealth rock and stone edge, young children who know nothing about pokemon

It's gross and stupid and it's evolution is even more awkward

Geez! If Charlie sheen was a Pokemon, it would be snubbull

Snubbull looks like a Bulldog!

Its ugly seriously gamefreak - NoxicPlayz

Shove this guy on the Top 10s.

I agree eith the visitor. - FerrariDude64

23 Throh

Wow, let's make some new fighting types and name them after ways to hurt people. And we'll misspell the names, too. Oh, but we have to make distinctions, so let's make 'em each a different color. AND PUT THEM IN KARATE GIs!

Hey! Why don't we rip off cool Pokemon like hitmonlee and hitmonchan and replace them with creepy things that look like Ernie and Bert? That would be a good idea, wouldn't it be?

WHY? Throh is not cool even though Sawk is, but it's not stupid. LOOK AT YOURSELF PEOPLE. And who says Snorlax, Weezing and Muk be stupid? Or Litten or Eevee? OR SAWK? YOU PEOPLE ARE MAD!

HHAHA THROW OHH great NAME M8 - SammySpore

24 Slowpoke Slowpoke

Slowpoke looks a whole lot like a zombie. On cocaine. Him and the rest of its evolutionary forms. Its eyes even bigger than those Japanese animated characters, and it looks permanently stoned.

Slowpoke is stupid my friend has the card I said throw it out he said you can sell for millions keep your old Pokemon to get cash

I have Pokemon mini-figures, and slowpoke has this tail curving towards his head. Some bottoms of my Pokemon toys, like Blastoise, have holes in them. Then, I can put Blastoise onto the Slowpoke tail, and call him SLowtank.

I beat forty a gym leader with it by the way it's physic type

25 Feebas Feebas

Feebas blows! Excerpt it evolves into milotic

Ok, captain obvious, feebas is JUST like a magikarp, BUT MORE UGLY.

Feebas is uglier, but better than Magikarp. This is because it can live anywhere. - turtwig

ICEBEAM Febas on ta dummy s

26 Caterpie Caterpie

Whenever you go into tall grass this dude shows up and keeps on coming it is truly the worst Pokemon that only knows string shot and tackle - bahramkhan

There are three reasons to put it in the first place: 1) it's weak in battle, 2) it's just ugly, 3) it farts (through its antenna). Gross...

It's such a stupid Pokemon based on a caterpillar that only knows string shot and tackle

so stupid

27 Oddish Oddish Oddish, known in Japan as Nazonokusa, is a dual Grass-Poison type Pokémon from the Pokémon series of video games and child-friendly animes.

I think oddish is cute. I've always wanted one.

I like Oddish; good evolutions - awesomeyveltal

Oddish is a weirdo with a grass hairdo its like Nintendo just said 'we don't have any Pokemon without arms, ' so they made him a blue seed, then they said, 'let's give him a spiffy hairdo!

I really like odissh, it's cute now some people might complain about gloom but remember, in the anime it saved a kids life from a grimer

28 Litten Litten

This should be number 1. I h8 him. - LeRoiDesSapins

29 Shedinja Shedinja

Shedinja's Dex entry states "that it will steal the soul of anyone looking in the hole on its back" this makes me hate Shedinja

No way! It's immune to HEAPS of types! I know it only has 1 HP, but STILL!


30 Eevee Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why is eevee on this list? He's awesome!

For one Elite is like the best you can evolve Eevee into so many of its evolutions

I love Eevee! Why's he on the list? - lynxa

Weezing's face... Oh my god. He looks like, 'Why is life so bad?!?!?! ' and plus, what ARE those stuff coming out of him? Is it what I think it is... is he farting?!

Weeping has fart powder coming out of him - SammySpore

It just looks.. Ugh.. -.-
I think Koffing looks better. I like elegent/cute looking pokemon, but this thing..
Maybe Koffing needs another evolution?

Simipour, I once used before, but it is so weak! Why were the elemental monkeys even Pokemon? It looks like a hippie.

I guess he is a little useless, but I like how they made them based off those three monkey things (hear speak see) - awesomeyveltal

It's gender ratio... Oh arceus

The ugliest thing ever

Dumbest Pokemon ever, Lugia and Evie destroy is in every way possible... Also Craig is a terrible name, just saying

34 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

No way I loke Gengar. He is my favorite ghost type.

Why is Gengar on here D: He's awesome, and a good reason to catch a Gastly. - awesomeyveltal

Whoever put this on the list is stoopid.

Why is Gengar stupid? He looks cool and he has great special stats. An idiot without pokemon knowledge adds this. - Userguy44

35 Simisear

I swear whenever I see this Pokemon something just smells BAD, maybe nintendo invented smellovision, because it works for me.

I like your pants, Simisear

36 Vanillish

It's an ice cream cone. Pokemon is getting DESPERATE! Next they will make a cup cake that evolves into a birthday cake, and then into a wedding cake.

Jesus it's the stupidest pokemon ever invented. If I ever had one, I would have been like "GO VANILLISH! " and it would come out half eaten because I would have eaten it I agree, Pokemon is really running out of ideas

How do you manage to make ice cream fight scares me because I love ice cream

Stop hating on Vanillish. I think it's adorable, and evolves into something that's actually GOOD. - lynxa

It is classified as the Despot Pokemon. 100 million years ago, before its extinction, Tyrantrum was an invincible predator with its more.

Who put him on this list! HE IS AWESOME!

Who the heck doesn't like this guy! I mean it's a rock Dino and the only bad thing about it is that it's arm are still short

Tyrantrum is epic! Fools put him on here - FerrariDude64

38 Abra Abra Abra is a character from Pokemon. It started out in Pokemon Red & Green (Blue version for outside Japan) version, and was one of the first psychic type Pokemon you could run into. It sleeps for 18 hours a day and teleports if it senses danger. Its only move it can learn by level up is teleport (which more.

As much as I like Kadabra, Abra sucks. You cannot do anything with it, and you can't fight it unless you have a really good Pokemon or level. The only chance you have is to have a one hit kill.

Its only attack is teleport!

Abra... well, it's actually pretty good (Special Attack: 105), and, you can teach it Psychic using TM. That's how you make it useful - lynxa

In the TCG five fierce chops low attack low chance of high damage and then cannot attack next turn

But he is top percentage- youngster joey.

The most retarded looking Pokemon in history. As if every single one would carry a big wooden beam all the time? It's evolution is worse though...

Designer 1: Let's see, what is the weirdest and most uncomfortable design so far?
Designer 2: Well, nobody likes Mr. Mime...
D1: I know! Let's take Mr. Mime, the single most hated Pokémon (other than Jynx) in Gen 1, make it so muscular its veins are on the outside of its skin, blow up its nose and dye it red, and give it a ridiculous pencil-thin waist so it doesn't even LOOK like it could lift something without snapping its spine!
D2: Amazing! And, let's make its head closely resemble a brain tumor!
D1: And, let's make its name include the word 'Durr"!
D2: We are going to make so much money off of this!

45 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

He is annoying cause I have all the Pokemon guides and I have top see this

Umm uxie is the smartest Pokemon

Laugh out loud world's smartest pokemon is on the stupid pokemon list. Whoever put him on is pretty dumb cause it has an IQ over 5000 and still on the stupid list lololz think twice before putting a pokemon on.

Garbodor is a bag of garbage! I mean seriously, a bag of garbage? What's next, a can of tomato soup named Cambello? Or maybe they might have an ice cream Pokemon. Oh wait...

I personally love Garbodor. You retards just hate it because of its design. So what is and ugly trash bag. Is one of my favorite poison types and Pokemon in general. First actually use it before you judge it. Garbodor is really strong. So yeah. Its awesome.

I literally threw up a bit when I first saw this thing. It's hideous. Can we at least recycle it instead of throwing it away?

Guys, okay. I heard this is one of the best Pokémon in the world because 1. It's a Garbage bag, 2. Because it has the word, "Odor" in there like body odor, 3. Cause it has a mouth and that makes it amazing. (Sarcasm)

It sounds annoying and only has one "attack. " I don't even understand why it is used in battle. And it took me hours to understand the tail, which is like a balloon that can hold things. And what happened to the post office? Don't just make a whole Pokemon for delivering presents.

Why isn't this even mentioned? This 2nd gen pokemon is completely horrible. God awful stats, ridiculously bad move set, and the only exclusive move it has HEALS the opponent. This will die in one hit no matter what, pass on this completely. - Akai

It gives you presents that blow up. It's like Santa Clause's evil pet or something.

I think it's cute. it helps you when your lost in the mountains - lynxa
