Top Ten Most Useless Pokemon

Sylveongirl12
Really? Pokemon must be REALLY running out of ideas!

The Top Ten

1 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)

Can you believe unknown magikarp was useless

Good to insult peeps in battles :v - Creasmo

Literally every other Pokémon has more moves than this Pokémon. This Pokémon only knows Hidden Power, a move all Pokémon but Wobbuffet, Wynaut, Kricketot, Tynamo, Spewpa, and Pyukumuku can learn by TM. Also, its stats are not well suited for that move, or in fact suited for battle to begin with due to being low. - Tag365

IT CAN ONLY KNOW ONE MOVE, IT'S JUST A WASTE OF THIRTY CARDS, IT JUST SYMBOLIZING THE ALPHABET EVEN THOUGH EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS ABOUT THAT S**T, UNKNOWN IS JUST THE MOST USELESS Pokemon IN THE UNIVERSE.

2 Miltank Miltank Miltank, known in Japan as ミルタンク, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was introduced in Generation II of the series and is a female only species categorized as the Milk Cow Pokémon. It is a Normal type Pokémon. ...read more.

Hey! If you know to use it can be useful. Just cause your team got wrecked by Whitney's one doesn't mean it is useless. - MrQuaz680

Does some people even know what term "useless" means? - Brachiozaur

How is Miltank useless? It can learn Milk Drink, a move that can be used to restore HP to other Pokémon outside of battle in Generation VI and earlier, and in battle to restore its own HP by half, allowing it to be used as an HP distributor in the overworld, so you don't have to go into Pokémon Centers as much.

It also can learn Defense Curl, a move that doubles Rollout's power the first time it is used, and Rollout, while it is a move that locks Miltank into using it for five turns or until it misses, Rollout increases in power the more turns it hits without missing. It also doesn't use additional PP for each turn it is locked into allowing you to take out multiple Pokémon with only one PP. - Tag365

3 Luvdisc Luvdisc

It's useless now but it used to be the only way to obtain heart scales. - MrQuaz680

4 Ditto Ditto Ditto, known in Japan as Metamon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Should not be on this list, very useful for breeding - RevolverOcelot

Great for competive breeding + has imposter - Brachiozaur

Um let's see here. It can breed with any Pokemon that can breed besides itself. It's one of the most useful one if you ask me - MrQuaz680

5 Smeargle Smeargle

Its only real use is to set up hazards and to use spore, which doesn't even work on Grass-types.

HOWEVER! There is a set I use in Ubers where I spore the opponent, use Substitute, then Belly Drum, then Baton Pass to a physical sweeper. - KalloFox34

Without it's trusty spore, it's weak

Sketch hydro pump or earthquake to smeargle and you have nice attacker
sketch stealth rock, toxic spikes, sticky web and spikes, give him focus sash and you have great suicide leader - Brachiozaur

Smeargle is actually very usefull one it has an awesome movepool which makes it unpredictable in battle. - MrQuaz680

6 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 ...read more.

This should be at number 1. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Weak in this evolution.

I can't do anything unless you evolve it - Matt92647

Splash does nothing

Mega anyone? Seriously the person who made this list doesn't know anything about Pokemon. - MrQuaz680

Starmie is in the OU teir. So it has a lot of use when it evolves - MrQuaz680

8 Beautifly Beautifly

On Ruby I Token down 4 gyms with this! - Rainbowkid38

9 Feebas Feebas

Not only that, but it's a pain to evolve and it's extremely difficult to find in Gens 3 and 4, ESPECIALLY the latter. - KalloFox34

10 Beedrill Beedrill

But his mega's good... - Brachiozaur

21 Wynaut Wynaut
22 Cosmoem Cosmoem Cosmoem is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is the first evolutionary stage of the Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon Cosmog.

It only can do teleport

It’s as useless as Cosmog and Magikarp.

24 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Useless pokemon created by humans
So if we follow this logic ill create a weird rowlet with 4 wings and it gonna be legendary because it will be the only creature like this - Creasmo

25 Jigglypuff Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Considering that even its evolved form Wigglytuff is garbage in Smogon's lowest tier, you can't imagine Jigglypuff being very good. Igglybuff is also horrible in Little Cup. - KalloFox34

26 Bidoof Bidoof

Its evolution, Bibarrel, can be used as an "HM slave" for traversing the overworld. - Tag365
