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.

Best pokemon ever

Magikarp is the strongest Pokemon to exist

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

Why is Magikarp 1st? At least it can evolve (and it evolves into a beast, at that). Unown does not evolve and only learns one move. - KalloFox34

It has awful stats, knows only 1 move and loses to every other Pokemon. Why does this even exsist?

I personally vote Unown as weakest as it only knows Hidden Power, which isn't the most ideal move for aspiring Trainers. Think about it, Magikarp's Pokedex entry says it can bounce higher than BUILDINGS. Yep, you heard that. BUILDINGS. What can Unown do? Oh yeah, that's right, that pathetic Hidden Power. So PLEASE reconsider placing Magikarp as the 'Weakest Pokemon'. No hate please.

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

I think it's illogical using a caterpie when an unarmed human is 20 times more powerful - Unnamed Google User Remade

Caterpie is weak but is also cute

Nothing but crap. - Swiftfrost

string shot that is all.
- Trish

4 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.

For a Gen 1 Starter, its just awful. The others are so much stronger!

5 Sunkern

Should not exist.

It had the lowest stat total until Wishiwashi came along. - KalloFox34

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

Technically the weakest pokemon ever! - Userguy44

6 Weedle Weedle Weedle, known in Japan as Beedle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Weed Is the best Pokémon ever dumbass

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...

7 Metapod Metapod Metapod, known in Japan as Transel, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Only does what my penis does while watching porn. HARDEN

Who needs this junk, even cascoon is better

Does it have to be so useless?

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

8 Wurmple Wurmple

i agree

Worse than weedle and caterpie. I would shoot it with an AK47 - Thetop10ssuckxxxxxxxxxxx

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

It is so weak should be number 3

9 Slakoth

Kinda cute. - Thetop10ssuckxxxxxxxxxxx

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

The pokemon su cks sooo bbb aaaddd THEY ALL SUCK!

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

10 Kricketot


I like this kid

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


The Newcomers

? Rhyhorn

The Contenders

11 Azurill Azurill Azurill, known in Japan as Ruriri, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It has the third-lowest best in the game (behind Sunkern and Wishiwashi) - KalloFox34

cry baby

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.

12 Silcoon

Everyone who has the guts to use Dustox in a playthrough and actually levels a wurmple to Lv. 7 should not be rewarded with a Pokemon that evolves into Beautifly instead.

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.

13 Dunsparce

It's okay in the early-game, but it will eventually become useless. - KalloFox34

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

14 Luvdisc Luvdisc

The worst fully evolved Pokemon that isn't Unown.

I still kinda like it. - Swiftfrost

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

It's a pretty weak Pokemon. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

15 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.

It's the Psychic-type version of Magikarp. The only differences are that Cosmog takes longer to evolve and doesn't learn ANY damaging moves until then. - KalloFox34

Teleport does nothing.

Nebby get in the bag

It is a legendary why is it so weak game freak just made one legendary the weakest Pokémon ever Wow just wow

16 Feebas Feebas Feebas, known in Japan as Hinbass, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Weak weak weak

How is this even milotic. It's the caterpie of the sea. Put it has the same problem as all the pokemon that look ugly before they even evolve.

Ugly?... Very few Pokemon are ugly in my opinion and did you ever read the Dec entry?

Any way your probably so superficial that you only care about how Pokemon Looks...

Do you treat your friends the same way? - Dimderi

Ugly thing How can you say it evolves into MILOTIC

It looks like Magikarps mom

17 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

He was the first Pokemon I caught. But I released him.

18 Cascoon

Not bad

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

19 Kakuna Kakuna

This guy is harmless the card can't do any damage

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

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...

20 Bidoof Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

By far the best HM slave in the game - KalloFox34

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.

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

This guy is a noob

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

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

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

22 Delibird Delibird

He only learns one move naturally, and it has a chance to heal the opponent. - KalloFox34

Another awful Pokemon that is waaay to weak to ever be considered competitive.

There is no way Charizard is worse than someone who learns only 2 level up moves and has a best of around 330. - PageEmperor

This badass knows a move that is uniqe in a bad way A VERY bad way,present.not useful at all in a cup final

23 Burmy Burmy

Burmy is another one of those Pokemon who only know harden. So just throw this piece of crap in a volcano

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

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


I kinda agree - Swiftfrost

So you think its weak a pokemon that can turn into the god of the world like its nothing is weak? - Dimderi

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

25 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.

The Starter everyone replaces with a Rattata.

Watch Detective Pikachu and see how strong he is

Awful...just awful. - Swiftfrost

It is weak

26 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.

Low health only one attack and that one attack is so weak why is this even a Pokemon?

27 Missingno.

I somehow found this in my let's go pikachu save file, and now I think I found a new glich in it

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

So weak it broke my save file

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

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

Both are not very effective and it can be powerful powder user - Shaolin

It loses with a simple thunder shock and water gun

Don't forgect Parasect... - PokemonGOSucks

Peck or Ember can OH-KO Paras. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

29 Ralts Ralts Ralts, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I have Ralts as a Pokemon and he is easily my worst.

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

30 Smeargle Smeargle

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

Its stats are low, but it has, by far, the best movepool. What I do is use Spore, increase its stats, Substitute then use Baton Pass and switch to a Mega Mewtwo. - KalloFox34

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.

31 Wishiwashi Wishiwashi

175 base stat total,hello?

YES - Swiftfrost

"But he has the Schooling ability! Schooling ability! " Dude. Schooling only transforms wishashi at the start or end of the turn, and I'm telling you that *cough* the opponent can one-shot wishiwashi before the turn even came unless the opponent is magikarp

Has a lower stat total then Sunkern, a Pokemon known for having the lowest stat total ever.

32 Magby Magby


It barely knows any fire moves. magmortar is awesome. though!

33 Bad Egg

Bad egg good pokemon


That's a glitch.

Technically not a pokemon

34 Stunfisk Stunfisk

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

I honestly like stunfisk but it is very weak but I think it's cute

35 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I had one in HeartGold. It broke my game, which allowed me to go from Azalea to Blackthorn in a few days. - KalloFox34

Never SAY a bad word about him

This thing is epic - Goatworlds

The worst combination of what the the Pokemon creators came up with

36 Goldeen Goldeen Goldeen, known in Japan as Tosakinto, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

She does strong Attacks water gun horn attack

37 Bellsprout Bellsprout

A rip off of the pea shooter from PVZ?! Let me explain this to you little kid. POKEMON EXISTED BEFORE POKEMON GO! Bellsprout existed when you were in diapers, And when that pea shooter was not even getting programmed!

OH yeah your right he should be 1 numbered

Bellsprout is the bane of my existence!

It is weak I mean all it ever does is say "bellsprout" and shoot things out of its mouth.

38 Farfetch'd Farfetch'd

It wouldv'e been better if he had an evolution or mega evolution that turns that chive onion into a sword he gets taller and faster

I only use Farfetch'd for an HM slave. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

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

39 Noivern Noivern Noivern, known in Japan as Onvern, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He’s not the worst but not the best :/

Already on the list

It's badass

I Love Noivern, He's My Favourite Pokèmon!

40 Shellos

Got a level 60 on to roblox pokemon
breeze - Thetop10ssuckxxxxxxxxxxx

When it is just a tiny Shellos it is weak but when it evolves it is good

Lol, this had lots of health when It evolved.

41 Spinda Spinda

Extremly forgettable because it is probably the worst pure Normal-Type. Even other forgettable Pokemon like Stantler, Lickitung and Bouffalant are stronger.

What is this list

Its drunk that's why

Spinda's a babe

42 Wobbuffet Wobbuffet

The female wobbuffet is super weird

Huge stamina though - Thetop10ssuckxxxxxxxxxxx

Dude its counter attack made it a tournament banded Pokemon

What! Whoever did this is crazy! Wobbuffet should be number 1,000! He is the best pokemon ever!

43 Hoppip Hoppip

Pure carp - Thetop10ssuckxxxxxxxxxxx

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

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

HEY zubat is Kool you just hate him because he shows up in caves all the time and usually starts out with leech life. CROBAT IS GOD OF THE NEW WORLD!

One question. Um... Where are his eyes? Are the shades on his ears supposed to be eyes or something? Either way, why is he purple?

That's only because it starts out with awful Leech Life and Astonish attacks. Once that thing learns Bite and Wing Attack at 12 and 15 level, then you've got yourself a Pokemon. If she really likes you, after evolving into a Golbat, she;ll evolve into a Crobat: what's there not to like about powerful new moves like Venoshock, Poison Fang, and even Sky Attack.

This thing is a total junk bag never catch one

It's so weird its just has no eyes or nose just teeth mouth and wings

45 Mewthree


This Pokemon is not real

Who even put Mewthree on here? It doesn't even exist.

Mewthree is real but got removed rip

46 Shuckle Shuckle

It lacks any reliable recovery, and it has a mediocre typing and very low HP.

It has some good, though. If it has the Contrary ability, you can use Shell Smash.

Either way, it's so passive that Taunt completely shuts it down. - KalloFox34

Shuckle is a very good Pokemon only if you can use it well like teaching it double team and toxic.

The only thing good about shuckle is its defense

It has the lowest speed of all Pokemon, which makes it pretty hard to use. It has horrible moves and cannot evolve. The best move it knows is rock tomb, and even that is pretty horrible.

47 Regigigas Regigigas Regigigas, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's be in Ubers if he didn't have such a terrible ability. - KalloFox34

Poor thing...

He would be an amazingly powerful Pokemon if it wasn't for Slow Start.


48 Rattata Rattata Rattata, known in Japan as Ratta, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How can a frikin rattata be better than regigigas STUPID

so WEAK - Swiftfrost

It's pretty weak. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

At least rattata is a good HM slave.

49 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

He has the lowest defense ever

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

Combee is stupidly weak.

50 Honchkrow Honchkrow

Honchkrow is a beast! Sure it's defense is bad, but Cyrus's Honchkrow has caused me so much problem, so I gave one a try, and loved it!

It does get moxie which is a great ability, and sucker punch to make up for its bad speed

No moves, no defenses and slow as hell. Murkrow is faster and Eviolite Murkrow is better than it. - oricteropotamandua

No defenses or moves. It's slower than Murkrow and Eviolite Murkrow is better than it.
