Top Ten Most Underrated Pokemon Anime Characters
The Top Ten
Iris wasn't that bad of a character. She had the most interesting premise of all the Pokegirls. She grew up surrounded by nature and then had to start her journey with a small dragon type. May and Dawn had famous parents, that is true. It doesn't seem to have affected Dawn much besides her goal. May wished she was closer with her father. Misty's biggest issue was teasing by her sisters. Serena lived a normal life until she decided to venture out into the real world.
Further more, the only constant complaint about her is her catchphrase. Can't you come up with anything else? As proven by the eighth gym battle of Unova, Iris does care about Ash, but like Misty she has a funny way of showing it. Unlike Misty she never physically slapped him. I know some people complain about her relationship with her Pokemon, but there aren't many good reasons to that.
She has shown nothing but love for Axew. I've seen no complaints about Emolga. Excadrill was a powerhouse, that is true, ...more
A character like Iris being chosen on Pokemon why the writers brought a new different character like her bring something different to the series damn other different girls. She's the only cover so far without a family and we don't know and no siblings and the family and she lives in the village enjoy the nature with other types of Pokemon.
Also just to let you know there's no such thing as factually overrated or underrated. They're more subjective terms. Whether they do deserve the praise or not is up to your opinion. - yungstirjoey666
Iris was SO underrated
He's the most underrated of the main characters so far, at least he's closer to the place he deserves unlike Brock and Jessie. I like Jessie, James, Brock, May and Cilan the most of the characters in the anime. But I don't judge underrated by order of favourite, I do in the order of getting ignored, misunderstood and/or the hateful attention they get. The Top 5 most underrated Pokemon characters are:
1. Tracey (ignored, often forgotten about)
2. Brock (similar to Tracy)
3. Jessie (painfully misunderstood)
4. Iris (similar to Jessie. doesn't make sense to me that she's so hated when Misty happens to be the most popular, they're very similar you know.)
5. Clemont and Bonnie (equally underrated, they're both ignored in favour of AshxSerena) - Trivona
If Ash is underrated thanGiovanni is Pikachu -_-
Ash? UNDERRATED? I hope this is a joke
I said "Yep" as in Yes he is Underrated.
Far better charater than May. So well written and amazing.
I’m not going to go into the reasons why Dawn was the best female companion. May and Misty fans either say she is too girly or that she is a carbon copy of them (which isn’t true at all). I think DP was an underrated series as a whole to be honest.
You’d be surprised. Max is very overrated actually. - TGBBOD
He was funnier than Brock
I like cilan because of his evaluation time and iris' reaction to it
the only complaint I have with him is that he uses pansage WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY TO MUCH (i don't hate pansage and his evolution I like them it is just that I wish cilan used his other pokemon more)
Jessie is way better than Serena!
She is stronger, determined, and brave.
Also she has a better personality than Serena just because she is Team Rocket so she had to steal others Pokemon.
Why isn't she higher? She's even more underrated than James. How Jessie is this far down and popular characters like Ash, Misty, May and Dawn only proves Jessie is an underrated one. You people don't even understand the meaning of the term underrated if this list is anything to go by, just like so many people doesn't understand the meaning of underrated. This is proof enough.
More underrated than most of those who's currently within 1-13, so Jessie is too far down on the list. The CD drama story should be part of the episodes, maybe then the younger fans would understand her more. - Trivona
Jessie is actually a lot more underrated than James, just go and see for yourself.
A really good character. She's a big sister to Bonnie, and really likes her Pokemon. She's hated for no real reason besides being girly or having a crush on Ash. She doesn't rely on him after a while, and begins a more independent career. - Staruli
Serena sucks, iris was always the best, she's close to nature, she can make medicine, she understands dragon type pokemon, she's amazing. Iris is great. Serena is useless, she's too girly like seriously, there's nothing wrong with being girly, but serena overdone it
Best character in pokemon
She is the worst character in pokemon.
Actually She is My least favourite character
How a bully he is
I don't think he's underrated. He abused his Pokemon. - yungstirjoey666
Man this guy is boss. He is miles smarter than ash and if it wasn't for That damm Infernape he probably could have won the sinnoh league
She is overrated and has an overprotective fanbase. She annoys me -_-
Should be second on the list, the only other character harder to find fanfics and fanart of is Tracy. - Trivona
...serena in the top ten? amourshippers do you realise how big your community is?
Well, well, well, I'm suprised I had to put her on here. The words (Underrated Pokemon Anime Character) were born when Mallow arrived because either everyone loved Lillie (Only good in the games) or Lana (Total Misty Clone).
James/Jessie/Meowth > Ash/Misty/Brock
EVERYONE hates the poor thing but me! The only reason I kept watching the anime.
Very underrated even though he was an interesting controversial rival. But he was overhated by advanceshippers. He's hair reminds me of cabbage.
Underrated like peppa pig
I used stage name so people knew who I met. Misty's eldest sister she has always appealed to me. She isn't totally girly like middle sisters but not total tomboy like Misty. She showed in Chronicles she could kick ass. - majormanafemale
She has a unique design, she's kind and smart, and she loves to make jokes! Now I'm not saying she's the queen of Pokémon, but honestly. I thought she would get more respect.
Who thinks Gary is underrated. Gary and Paul are the overrated annoying ones. Why can't trip and alain have the spotlight
