Top 10 Weakest Pokemon

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.

I'm sorry, when it comes to weak pokemon, it's no contest. Magikarp has always, to this day, been one of the only pokemon that can be considered a joke. The only thing that can redeem this pokemon is his evolution, and even then, it's a massive pain-in-the-ass journey involving lots of grinding and EXP Shares.

This Pokemon is badass with swift swim it out speeds almost anything this poor Pokemon it is great

Are you serious? Charizard as second weakest? Arceus as 13th weakest? Do you people have any idea what pokemon even is? Sure, Magikarp is quite pathetic and I agree it is the weakest, but you guys are morons if you actually think Arceus and others legendaries are anywhere near weak.

Caterpie and Weedle aren't too bad because they evolve quickly. But you have to get Magikarp up to a pretty good level before it finally evolves into the wonderfully powerful Gyrados. And I'd like to see you TRY to beat any Pokemon with Magikarp. Considering Magikarp only knows Splash and (if you're lucky) Tackle, it'll be a pretty tough fight.

It can also learn bounce and flail, as well as hydro pump, celebrate, and dragon rage through event. Unown only learns hidden power. Nothing else. EVER. - Mooshroomsrock17

Magikarp is a billion times weaker than Charizard, and that is why I vote Magikarp, to fight against anyone voting one of the most awesome, and iconic final evolution starters in all of Pokemon, that is flying, fire, and dragon type that has 2 Mega Evolutions, that could destroy pretty much any grass type, but type, and most ice type Pokemon, and you rate it as #5 of the WEAKEST Pokemon just because it's really weak to rock?!? How stupid is this list, you could of at least put Charmander as #5 in because clearly its weaker, if it's just the fire starter itself, and not evolved... This list is extremely stupid. I was in shock when I saw Charizard as #5 weakest, that is just absurd...

2 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)

Come on Unown only knows 1 move and that's hidden power a move that almost every pokemon can learn. Do you wan't to know why its name is Unown, because once you catch it you, ll wan't to un-own. - Josono1234

Only learns one move and can't learn any TMs. Terrible stats overall.

Unowned only has 1 move: Hidden Power which is a move that any Pokemon can learn by HM. Also this Pokemon takes up the most Pokemon cards for a single Pokemon and its stats are incredibly low. Useless and Weak Pokemon

Unown sucks! It only learns one move and doesn't even evolve! It's the worst Pokemon ever!

3 Sunkern

It has total base stats of 180, while Magikarp and Feebas have 200! Caterpie is even better than Sunkern with 195! I think Kricketot has 194 actually xD

Wait...Caterpie has 195? Ralts has a worse base stat total than a worm! - Epicsauce45

It will make you cry like no tomorrow trying to kill something although magikarp are painful to raise too

For all of you who think Unown and Magikarp are the worst, they're meant to be. They're not meant to be for battling, Magikarp is just a troll until you evolve it, and Unown I assume is just to decode secrets and/or for decoration. Sunkern, however, has the lowest stats in the game, and at least Magikarp evolves into a killer, unlike Sunkers, who evolves into still-weak Sunflora. Sunflora is stronger, but still so weak it's funny. - Ohno

It is so strong that it can learn solar beam... JK Sunkern sucks it evolves into a stupid flower

4 Caterpie Caterpie

string shot that is all.
- Trish

Wrong! He know bug bite but that's pretty much all.

You know pie and caterpillar? , if they meets its is CATERPIE!

He is one of the most adorable pokemon!

5 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.

Aw yeah guys. Charizard is so awesome. He just-

Stealth Rock.

Jesus christ, that shouting. The shouts of a 10 year old that thinks that it's cool to like Charizard. - ChocoMint

Considering how Charizard faints merely at the sight of rocks, I'm amazed it hasn't already been voted higher on this list.

Try actually using Charizard competitively with ACTUAL STRATEGY and watch yourself fail. Don't be fooled just because the show tried to make Charizard all badass. He really isn't. It's like getting a giant car - you look pretty cool on the outside, but you're really just compensating for something really really pathetic.

Also, rocks.

...Pichu is better lol

6 Metapod Metapod

Metapod. Metapod. I only know harden. Metapod. Metapod. I'm useless. Metapod. Metapod. Don't get me unless you want a Butterfree. Metapod. Metapod.

All it knows is harden until it evolves that will take FOREVER since harden does no damage and it can barely learn anything good. Maybe I don't like it because it's a cocoon? I don't really like cocoons but I sorta like the shape that's all I like on metapod

It's only good for harden otherwise it couldn't last a second

How is Metapod higher than Charizard? I agree Charizard is not great competitively, but it's actually usable in NU, which is not the lowest tier. Metapod is not the strongest aside from jokes. - yungstirjoey666

7 Luvdisc Luvdisc

Doesn't even evolve, like all the others on this list.

Luvdisc is terrible. It couldn't even 1 hit KO a Camerupt with Water Pulse if it was a critical hit and confuse it. Luvdisc defines a bad Pokemon. It sucks more than Charizard. Yeah, that bad.

At least it can attempt a sweep with swift swim. Unown though? I can't think of a single pokemon that CAN'T counter it. - Rayquasar

For me, Luvdisc is the weakest because it can't even evolve to get stronger. At least with a Magikarp you know it evolves into a beast later to make up for the previous 20 levels.

This pokemon is just a stupid pokemon it is just a heart with a face it could be a little better if it can have a evolution

V 25 Comments
8 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.

Well, weedle is...just weedle. It can have some half decent moves if it is at a high level (as in level 11) and isn't terrible when its shiny, but overall, it sucks,

Weedle learns the worst moves ever mine fainted before even using a dang move against a lower level Pokemon...

I had a weedle and lost after 1 move.

WEED - RevolverOcelot

9 Feebas Feebas

Hey, you know what? I caught a feebas and train it at the pkm contests, so it can evolves into a badass milotic-a very, very strong water type. It helps my them a lot, worth for my training ;-P

I agree, Feebas is a damn useless Pokemon. the only reason I like him is because he evolves into a real pro card, MILOTIC!

Feebas is so weak... But the worst CARD is this togepi card that can only make the other person draw a card...

Too weak for me

10 Wurmple Wurmple

I won't lie Dustox was the dominator in my team for a while, but, Wurmple will get one-shotted unless you switch out.

But it is still cute

It is so weak should be number 3

On the cards does 10 attack and has 40 hp

V 8 Comments

The Newcomers

? Slaking Slaking

By its stats alone, it'd be in Uber, or at least OU. Its ability, Truant, kills its worth. When fighting one, all you have to do to avoid being damaged is to use Protect every time it is able to attack. - KalloFox34

The Contenders

11 Kricketot

It is actually weaker than the splash, flail, and tackle using magicarp hypo

I love kricketot and I repeat, I LOVE THIS SINGING CRICKET but I trained it all over and its still really weak in battle

Come on...Kricketot is SO weak. I just gave it to a friend for free. He is one of my least favorite

His moves are so weak that if 20 Kricketot Battled 2 magicarp most likely magicarp would win

V 10 Comments
12 Smeargle Smeargle

Smeargle can learn any attack. How is it weak if you play your cards right?

This Pokemon isn't weak at all! You let it hold a focus sash so it would survive an attack, and use spore to make opponent asleep. When your opponent wakes up, they find out stealth rock, sticky web, spikes all set up.

You have to be a bad trainer if you can't make Smeargle a great Pokemon. Seriously it can learn and pass on every move except for Chatter and Struggle, even then Struggle isn't even a real move.

Play your cards right. Give it good moves and strategies. There you go. One of the strongest Pokemon - PowerfulPokemon

13 Azurill Azurill

I'd have 2 say.. Azuril is kinda cute but weak. BUT not as weak as Magikarp. This is why I don't like Magikarp (I do like its evoulution though)and I do like Azuril. (;

While sunkern has a worse best, At least it can ATTACK when it is first born. Azurill starts with... What? Splash? Pathetic.

But... Azumarill with Huge Power.

Third worst best in the game, beaten only by Sunkern and Solo Wishiwashi. - KalloFox34

V 15 Comments
14 Silcoon

Silcoon's only saving grace is that Beautifly's base stat total is higher than Dustox's by a pathetic amount of 10.

This guy is pathetic

It should be higher. It's basically Cascoon.

No strong attack at all.😳

V 1 Comment
15 Patrat

A lot of hate aghast patrat, poor buddy, his eyes do look like they have been scratched out though, (Patrat) look deep into my eyes..

All this Pokemon does is stair into space it's lazy at battling and just randomly stairs at danger.

I wonder how Patrat eats if his cheeks are always full of seeds


V 11 Comments
16 Slakoth

His ability Truant with his low speed makes him horrible. You can use protect every time he attacks and on the times Truant activates, you can use a stat boot on yourself

Where the eff is he on this list? It has Truant for crying out loud! It's like if every one of his attacks are like half the power and his defenses halved because he attacks or statuses one turn and is completely immobile the next.

He has okay stats for an early-game mon, but his ability just shuts down all usefulness. - KalloFox34


V 8 Comments
17 Cascoon

When I evolved my wurmple, my stats literally went down... Never press b during evolution if you are trying to get a dustox. I only am keeping one to own every single pokemon. Even the terribly hard training of a cascoon is not worth it to get adustox. Dustox's are also terrible.

He should be number 1! He's weaker than Magikarp because Magikarp learns tackle at some level.

I hate cocoon Pokemon there's too many of them and they all only know harden

I suck it's the same thing as silcoon but cascoon has two eyes

V 5 Comments
18 Dunsparce

This thing has the potential to be cool if they would just give it an evolution. Plus, WHY IS THIS THING NOT PART BUG TYPE?

Dunsparce is supposed to be based on some Japanese snake that can hover for short bursts, so no, that is why it is not a bug type

Dunsparce is actually damn op when used well.

True. It gets Rollout at an early level. What other pokemon get Rollout at an early level? Jigglypuff...and ' MILTANK. We all know what a pain in the butt Miltank is. - Epicsauce45

You know that dunsparce has a higher base stat total than onix... - Lanturnizer6

19 Bidoof Bidoof

My very first HM slave! :D

Seriously. Who like Bidoof?!

I looked at it once, and I did not even feel like hunting it to extinction because it's so darn ugly.

It's cute - KalloFox34

20 Scatterbug

This Pokemon is shaped like a turd and attacks like one as well!

I actually like my scatter bug I caught a Bulbasaur with mine

Its a rip off of every other caterpillar Pokemon. At least its final evolution is OK.

Never wanted to catch Scatterbug in my playthrough of Y, because it sucks!

21 Cosmog Cosmog Cosmog is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. The most iconic appearance of Cosmog in the Pokémon franchise is the one owned by Lillie from Pokémon Sun and Moon, nicknamed Nebby.

As much as we adore Cosmog, it's incredibly weak. It only knows splash and teleport. Making it more useless than Magikarp. - Rue

It only knows 2 moves which is splash and teleport which really useless. It also have a low stat. - 50

It has a cool design, similar to Gastly, but weaker than expected. - Ohno

It's adorable, but it's pre-evo is USELESS. I'm sorry, Nebby, but when it evolves, it's super powerful.

V 8 Comments
22 Delibird Delibird

It only knows present. The move that has a 20% chance of actually HEALING the defending Pokemon. Really, Pokémon? REALLY?!

Charizard is Number 5 here, which probably was voted by haters that prefer Venusaur, and Delibird is number 22? Get that outta here.

It's a Christmas bird, why exist if it only mostly HEALS the other Pokemon?

Mostly means over 50% he said 20 how stupid are you and if done right delibird can sweep - Shaolin

Wow... only move is present... has a chance of healing.. can't learn tms... Ya know what? This thing is useless. Fairly good state, though 😑 - PowerfulPokemon

23 Ralts Ralts

I use Ralts only for Gallade. I seem to have the good luck of always finding male Raltses. This is one of the only pokemon I have in all three games that I have.

Ralts ins no where near the weakest it can mega evolve into Gardevoir and Gallade and they can use close combat

I only like it because it evolves into gallade or gardevoir

He is super strong and should be at 700th place

V 8 Comments
24 Burmy Burmy

The only thing that doesn't suck about it, is that it can change types. Otherwise, you have either a leafy, sandy, or trashy pinecone thing. Maybe even Game Freak thought it sucked so bad it could be better if it had multiple forms! Plus, in all evolutions, all forms, it's ugly. Mothim doesn't even have forms. It's horrible in looks, stats, moves, and pokelathon stats. Aren't you excited to use the leaf-covered worm during battle?

It looks like a booger. Same to Wormadam! Would you ever want a female booger in one of your slots?! No. For that reason, banish this piece of crap to your nose, and puncture it endlessly with your finger.

Weak but has more than one type

The sandy cloak Burmy evolves into a slice of PEPPERONI PIZZA! Also, you can expect it to be found on weak Pokémon lists.

25 Ditto Ditto Ditto is a character from Pokemon. It's a normal type Pokemon that has the ability to shape shifter into anything. It's weakness is fighting type Pokemon and is a gender less Pokemon.

It can turn into Rayquaza and have all the powerful moves. As a result, Ditto is the strongest Pokemon in the game especially if you level it up to 100. It shouldn't be on the list.

Who ever put Ditto on this list is a lier. Ditto is packed with EXTREME POWER! It could destroy the world! #Badass

Ditto can transform into other pokemon but no ditto can defeat the original pokemon

Ditto USED to be bad until he got Imposter. Now, he's a decent revenge-killer. He's also essential to breeding because he can breed with everything (except Legendaries and Baby Pokemon) - KalloFox34

26 Emboar Emboar Emboar, known in Japan as Enbuoh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Really. That's three fire fighting types in a row. And to be honest charizard even is better than this thing

He has a terrible stat spread (low defenses and speed, and 100 of his best thrown into a stat he doesn't use), a horrible, ugly design (an ugly hunk of lard wearing a gurdle), a cliched typing that had been used the previous two generations, a poor movepool and a shiny that manages to make the original look beautiful. Worst Pokemon period, end of story. - KalloFox34

Emboar is the second best Pokemon ever

Bye bye Bob! Bob go bye-bye. Bob the athletic fire pig who can't beat a magikarp. Bob say he suck. Bob suck. Bob really suck. Bob super suck. Bob sooo suck. Bob suck to much. Bob suck completely. Bob sucks lolly pops. Bob go Byyye-Bye

28 Pichu Pichu Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves.

2nd to worst base stats evolves into something nobody uses the only thing good about this pokemon is pikachu and lightball so it would be the poor excuse of a pokemon

Damages himself and has low stats

The only use Pichu has is Nasty Plot. Which can be useable to Pikachu/Raichu and Pichu is the only Pokemon in the evolutionary line that can learn it. - Rue

Horrid base stats, beaten only by things like Caterpie, Azurill, Magikarp, Sunkern, etc. - KalloFox34

29 Hoppip Hoppip

Why did Nintendo make Hoppip have splash (or hop)? This is one of the few Pokemon I forget about.

You're right about that

I think I hate Hoppip

Lazy design - Ohno

30 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.

Teach it theif, steal the opponents berrys ;D

All it can do is teleport.

It has bad base stats and at the earlier stage it only USES TELEPORT AND LEARNS IT!

Abra only knows teleport

V 25 Comments
31 Kakuna Kakuna

I don't know why this is here! This Pokemon is awesome and so is charizard! Charizard is not weak so I think this is WRONG

Kakuna isn't even better than Metapod since unless you teach his evolution Beedrill attacks like Poison Jab, X-Scissor, and Agility, it holds no candle to the combination of Sleep Powder, Bug Buzz, Dream Eater, and Nightmare you can get from Metapod's evolution Butterfree...

The whole line was garbage until Beedrill could Mega Evolve (his mega is... actually pretty good). - KalloFox34

Kakuna is bad but Beedrill is great. - Ohno

32 Farfetch'd

Farfetch'd is awesome! He knows how to use that chive onion stalk as a sword

Most people forget that Farfetch'd is a pokemon

Farfetchd is just A... a duck

33 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.

This should be definitely higher. PIKACHU IS WEAK. Even if it's the show's spotlight, doesn't mean it's the strongest ever. If you think it's the strongest, most bad ass Pokemon ever because of that or its appearance, you know nothing about Pokemon at all.

Why is this not higher up on the list? People only like it because it's cute. It's so overrated. Its stats suck. Besides, it lost to a LEVEL FIVE SNIVY.

Also, Pikachu couldn't use its electric moves.. What's it left with? A weak ass move called Quick Attack.. And Iron Tail. - PowerfulPokemon

Who made this list. Whoever added pikachu on this list is crazy

For a middle-stage evo, it has bad stats. It's acceptable in-game, though. - KalloFox34

34 Combee

No one put this on yet.The Males don't evolve, but the Females do, and Combee's evo is pretty awful anyway.

Plus the chance of a actually finding a female one is pretty damn low - Lanturnizer6

He has the lowest defense ever

You have to breed combee a lot to get a lady combee

It loses with a simple thunder shock and water gun

Don't forgect Parasect... - PokemonGOSucks

38 Missingno.

So weak it broke my save file

This thing... I wanna kill whoever made this stupid ass list

Its only good stat was its monstrous Attack. Everything else was worse than Magikarp's stats. - KalloFox34

Technically Missing no. isn't a Pokemon.

Charizard is an epic Pokemon, so epically bad that it dies when stepping on a hazard rock twice

Are you kidding? Stunfisk can beat Beedrill with ease.

Well... Its just a fish afterall

Stunfisk is SO NOT CUTE. Looks like a bird that got run over by a Steamroller! HAHAAHA!

40 Phione Phione

These things. Just a clone of Manaphy. - RiverClanRocks

It's cute but I don't understand why it exists. It doesn't even evolve into Manaphy. And yes, they changed something huge in Pokemon and made mascot legends have pre evos so I don't see why Manaphy can't have Phione as a pre evo. - Rue

Phione is just a copy of manaphy

Its worse clone of manaphy

You people are crazy! This is so fake! Arceus and charizard! This is so stupid! I can't even believe this website. you. people know nothing about this topic. you suck!
