Worst Pokemon Characters

Pikachulover1
This list describes the dumbest, most unpopular Pokemon Characters. I totally/partly hate all of these.

The Top Ten

1 Serena Serena Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship ...read more.

Serena is boring. Extremely girly, cooking pastries, into fashion, dressing up, dressing up her Pokemon... I've seen Dawn do this in Sinnoh. What's worse is how her current interest has nothing to do with battling, the core element of Pokemon. Pokemon performers seem really sexist. First of all it's females only. A gender specific competition in Pokemon is odd. Secondly, again, there's no battling. It's like the creators were thinking "Oh. Boys only battle. Girls like to dress up, look cute and dance." Again, somewhat sexist.

Even though I don't "hate" Serena I wanted to share a few things that nobody really noticed. This is more of an observation than anything else.Besides Serena being a walking female stereotype, a problem with Serena that not a lot of people talk about is her lack of contribution to the plot. Have you ever noticed when Ash is running his mouth off to characters of the day, Serena just stands there saying nothing and just looking bored? Or when Team Rocket shows up, she just cuddles Bonnie like Bonnie's life support or stands in the background waiting for Ash to solve the problem? The only things that she says is how great Ash is or just exposition. One thing that I also noticed about Serena is that her personality is very inconsistent. In most episodes she'll be a background character just standing there and talking exposition. But when there's a "Serena focused" episode, her personality completely changes. She always has this determined look plastered on her face ...more

In all my years of Pokemon, never have I seen such a useless character. Every one of Ash's companions were unique, and they had original designs and personalities. Serena is just a stereotype barbie doll. All she ever does is think about looking pretty and getting Ash's attention. Everyone says that Dawn and Misty served no purpose and that they were stereotypes. Are you kidding me!? Misty was a cool tomboy who would put on nice clothes every now and then. And sure, Dawn was a girly-girl but unlike a stereotype girly-girl Dawn only put on special clothes to look feminine, not to show off. And unlike the other pokegirls, Serena had no special design. Strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, sound familiar? Not only that but Serena's goal was super stupid. A Pokemon performer? All they do is dress-up and show-off their Pokemon. They don't even show the true point of the show, battling. If you all noticed, Ash, Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, and Cilan's goals all had something to do with ...more

Misty is both tomboyish and girly-girl. She's like an in-between. - yungstirjoey666

Weakest and most useless travelling companion in the history of the show, contributes nothing noteworthy to the show.

2 Ash Ketchum

Ash is the koopalings of Pokemon. Both offer the same pathetic thing with just a different look. The koopalings are garbage characters/bosses who do the same "recycle the boss with a different, lame koopaling skin" routine. Ash is a pathetic trainer who does the same thing of struggling to collect the badges, struggling with the same type of Pokemon in fire/grass/water/regional bird/Pikachu and he ultimately loses at the league while wearing a different outfit. Same crap, different look.

I can't get Ash's fanbase. Being a goodie goodie doesn't make a character entirely likeable for that one solo reason. He has to be a character first for me to like him as a character. Which Ash fails at. He is not even a character with a personality anymore but an empty trash bin for writers to fill with unnecessary junks and fillers that no one cares about. All of Ash's former companions seem to have grown up. But Ash us still the same. Empty, bland, boring, one dimensional and uninteresting. And I agree that Serena should not be the top here. She was there for only one season. While Ash is in every season but still a underdeveloped dumbo. And in each new season Ash suffers from a memory loss and forgets everything he learned from previous region.

I didn't mind Ash in the first few seasons, but as much as I disliked when his friends got replaced there was a reason for that: You need new blood. For a series this long, and this light-hearted, you need to keep the characters interesting and Ash has lost ALL interest for me. It feels like the show's gone from "Adventures of Ash and his Friends" to "Adventures of Ash and his Groupies that are Only There to Tell us How AMAZING he Is! " He's stale, has no real flaws, no character development, hardly a personality anymore, and I can't even remember the last time I really saw him WORK for something.

But that's not why I hate Ash the most, the reason he annoys me so much is most prevalent in the movies: HE IS THE BIGGEST MARY SUE/GARY STU CHARACTER I HAVE EVER SEEN! And I DON'T say that lightly!

Every movie has become the same thing; "Watch Ash be the chosen one (again) and save the world while befriending ALL the legendary Pokemon with no effort ...more

Ash is completely illogical. He tosses his Pokemon aside like old toys just to capture substitutes who present new problems for him to struggle with. In every series Ash has a competitive goal, but he's not fully dedicated to it. He spends more time eating and being distracted by random problems which have nothing to do with his goal. To top things off we don't know why Ash even wants to become a Pokemon master. Does he want to follow in his father's footsteps? Does he want to achieve something his father could not? Perhaps there's some kind of benefit of being a Pokemon master which would help his family? We don't know!

3 Iris Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris ...read more.

The only reason I ever here someone hating iris for is her phrase "what a kid" or variations on that phrase ignoring that phrase I never here anything else negative about her. People are probably going to hate me for this but I think she was a breath of fresh air I mean after 2 regions of having the girl be coordinator it was nice to see something different and addressing her catchphrase she's calling ash out for things the fans have made jokes about for years if anything serena is worse because the only thing she has above iris is her past relationship with ash. If you don't like iris that's fine there are reasons to dislike her maybe you find her voice annoying all I'm asking is that you put your nostalgia for misty behind you and judge iris without nostalgic bias clouding you if you still dislike Iris after doing that well that's fine I'm not going to judge you as a person because I'm sure you're a nice person in real life (making personal judgements of people because their ...more - Gamer4life

"You're such a kid! " No Iris, YOU'RE the kid. Yelling at Ash because he got six gym badges is so immature. I'd like to see you do it! - Pikachulover1

Iris' hatedom is insane. Looking aside from the flawed BW writing, she was a great character. She can stand up for what she believes is right, is not afraid to speak her mind, cares a lot for her friends and Pokemon, can read dragon type's hearts, can make medical remedies and never gives up once she have set her mind on something. I agree the writers could do a MUCH better job writing her character, I mean her ARC wasn't even finished! But overall, she's one of the most memorable characters I've seen in the anime.

It's weird people refuse to watch BW yet hate Iris for the sole purpose that she calls Ash a kid. Her catchphrase is supposed to be ironic, she's a kid herself. Because of the bad experience she had in Opelucid Academy where people judged her because they found her weird and childish she didn't know how to approach Ash, hence why she called him a kid because he was brash and reminded her of how she acted when she was new to the academy. Iris is actually very insecure ...more - Engel

Not only do I find it annoying that she calls Ash a kid all the time, but she mostly does it for really dumb and unnecessary reasons. Most of them involving Ash not being FAMILIAR to the Unova region, it's Pokemon, or some of their special abilities because he's NEW to them all. Like being unfamiliar with the Battle club, Pokemon Connoisseurs, or knowing where a gym is in a city is because he's completely NEW to it all and never experienced it while in the other regions. I will admit that Black and White has made Ash become forgettable for a lot of things and make it look like almost all his great experience and battles in Sinnoh have just been thrown out the window, but that's doesn't mean that she has to act like a stuck-up know-it-all and expects Ash to know what almost EVERYTHING in Unova is just because he's now learning and starting to adapt to what the new region has. Why do you have to call Ash a kid for THOSE reasons Iris? If anything, you're more immature than him, and if it ...more

Even though I like Iris, I respect this opinion wholeheartedly because at least you don't demonize her like everyone else does. - ZettaGirl23

4 Paul

All I ever hear is people saying that Paul is such a great rival man he is not. Unlike most of a Ash's rivals, Paul did noting but abuse and abandon is Pokemon because they weren't "good enough". All of Ash's rivals cared for their Pokemon and supported them so they could do their best. And even though Gary would tease Ash a bunch it was just a friendly rivalry to prove who was better and even despite this Gary still loved his Pokemon. Paul on the other just yelled at them to do better, even when they trained their hardest? That's messed up.

Paul should be the number one most hateable Pokemon character because he was nothing but an abuser!
He never treated his Pokemon as friends! Only objects of power... which is a shame.
And every time when ash says something nice and positive about Pokemon being friends, he just says the word Pathetic! That always gets on my nerve!
But of course, there are moments that totally gave us satisfaction, like paul loosing a battle against the awesome powerful Cynthia
And what about the battle of paul against the pyramid king? That battle was just satisfying! Paul loosing while the pyramid king hasn't lost any Pokemon.
But yet ash feels bad for paul. I didn't even felt bad for him, HE DESERVED TO LOOSE!

Paul should be #1. All Paul did was abuse and abandon his Pokemon if they weren't powerful or "good enough". When I first saw Paul, I hated him from the start. I hated him because unlike all of Ash's rivals, he uses Pokemon for power instead of becoming friends with them. All of Ash's rivals loved their Pokemon, no matter what. Paul on the other hand just called them weak and pathetic every time he loses or in some cases, wins a battle.

I dislike Paul a lot. He's a snobby jerk who mistreats his Pokemon. Abandoning Chimchar. Giving away Azumarill because it "couldn't improve." He even released a little Starly who he deemed weak. It's cruel. I mean sure, Trip did some bad things, and he was snobby and rude, but he was better than Georgia and Burgundy. Still, Paul is the worst and will always be the worst.

5 Cilan Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

Cilan may be annoying, but hating him because he replaced Brock is stupid. We all know Brock had to leave but it wasn't just because he stayed so long, it's because of Ash. Why I say that is because Ash is the only child, and he lives alone with his mother so he had no father figure whatsoever. But after he met Brock, Ash kinda started depending on Brock for everything. He looked up to him as a role model and even began taking on some of his personality traits. Eventually though, Ash started to mature, and then grew into his own character which stated giving him not much of big need to depend on him. So he left not only to become a Pokemon doctor but also because he knew Ash could handle things on his own unless he met new friends. And besides, when Ash met Cilan, Cilan didn't really act as a brother or father but more of a close friend. He may have not have as big of a relationship, but he was still important to the plot. And if they hadn't created Cilan, the viewers would've gotten ...more

"I'm a stupid Conessuier! Oh my gosh its a movie! A train! A piece of pizza! " Grr... I hate this dude! There's the stupid "evaluation" and all the references to food! Who cares if your a stupid A- Class Conessuier! It's the dumbest life goal in the history of all time! - Pikachulover1

Actually, I don't hate Cilan. His food references never bothered me that much, and his goal was still better than Serena's by far. And while you can like Brock better, hating Cilan just for replacing Brock is stupid. I guess people just like to jump in the BW hate bandwagon. - Liinde

To be honest, Cilan is a bit overhated. - Userguy44

6 Misty Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ ...read more.

"Oh why did Misty leave, she was awesome! " "The older show is better than the new show! " "Go die in a hole May and Dawn, and other female characters! We hate you! "

Do you know how whiny, bratty, and immature this sounds? I mean, some of the Misty fans are constantly complaining over a cartoon character's departure, and that's stupid. I mean, come on! Not only that, but they want to act like she was a perfect and pretty tomboy and crap like that. Dude, Misty was as far from tomboyish as you can get. She always insisted on going shopping, she was scared of harmless bugs, and she would always pick and choose which Pokemon and humans she was nice to. Are you kidding me? That's not tomboyish, that is snobby and stuck-up. All the other females were original (well, except for Serena) and they had their own qualities that made them very likable. I mean, May was sweet and tomboyish, Dawn was optimistic and playful, and Iris was athletic and headstrong. ...more

Misty is the worst character of all. All she does is follow ash around and never does anything productive. If any case ash is always saving her. Come on she claims to be sweet when really she is the meanest person ever. She is always insulting everybody and thinks she is so pretty. Come on can she have some modesty. What really annoyed me was the fact that ash found the togepi egg but misty still persisted in keeping it and pushed ash out of the way when it hatched. She basically stole his Pokemon. Also why does she act like pikachu belongs to her. It doesn't. She is a brat and the worst Pokemon character of all. Why is she so mean to psyduck? A Pokemon trainer loves all their Pokemon and if it wasn't for him misty would have no Pokemon at all.

Misty acts like she's a perfect tomboy when she's not. A tomboy is a girl who likes sports, dirt, wearing loose clothing, and hanging out with boys. Misty only cared about looking pretty, romance, hitting her friends, and using her sisters as a lame excuse of why she did it. Not only that but she wore too many revealing clothes when she was only ten-years-old. Bikinis, small tank tops, short-shorts? That's not tomboyish, that's just hillbilly. Plus, the most annoying thing about her is that Togepi. Ash nearly got hurt when he found the egg, Brock stayed up day and night to take care of the egg, and even Meowth treated it like a baby before it hatched. What did Misty do? Nothing. She just stole it from them and babied it to death. When Ash got Phanpy it helped it to grow stronger and Brock did the same with Bonslide. And the thing about it is, they kept them in poke balls. Misty on the other hand just carried her baby around so she could look cute. May was sort of tomboyish, Dawn was ...more

Yes, Misty can be annoying, and is very hotheaded, has a pretty much love/hate relationship with Ash, but I can relate to her in some ways. (OK I won't say any more).
Anyway, we know Serena and (maybe, but Misty's Song implies this more) Misty both have crushes on Ash. What's different is their tactics to get Ash to notice them. Serena was kind, polite, baked cookies for Ash etc.
Misty was abusive, unkind, angry, and blamed it on her sisters.
And at the end of the day, who does ash love? It's Misty, of course, always Misty. Her personality in the original series was just... I don't know what to say.

7 Harley

Revenge over a stupid cookie is one thing, but to hold a grudge over years and taking it out on a girl who only looked like the one who stole it? Talk about pathetic. All he does is get butt-hurt over May beating him, and no matter how many times May is willing to forgive him, he NEVER can. He's so sad that he dresses up as a little girl. Really, a baby outfit would be a better suit for him since that's what he all acted like. It's surprising he even had a friend (Solidad) from how huge of a self-centered prick he was.

This moron should be higher not Harley

Harley should be on the top of this list!

Drew was more behaved than Harley. Drew only teased May because he likes May

This French bitch is utterly pathetic, having never won a single battle in her life and losing four.

This chick is a pathetic loser and is a jerk to Cilan and Iris...my two favorites from Best Wishes. - ZettaGirl23

She is pretty annoying...and rude...and loud. She's so obsessed with beating Cilan all the time that that's the only thing she cares about. I just think she's an obnoxious, bland character, like a recipe for a rival gone bad. :P (Okay, that Cilan-style line was on purpose, haha.)

Worse than Cilan. She’s very short-fused and obnoxious. - Userguy44

9 Bonnie Bonnie Bonnie is created by game freak & Nintendo. She was in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, as Clemont's (the electric type gym leader of Lumiose City) younger sister. She gave out quizzes to trainers who came to challenge the gym, who if they get it wrong would have to challenge a trainer. ...read more.

I actually like Bonnie. Sure the "marry my brother" gag was kind of annoying, but other than that I don't see what's hateable about Bonnie. I don't find her that stereotypical unlike Serena, she really shined in season 19 too, and in my opinion was far better than an Ash fangirl. - Liinde

"I'd say she's a breath of fresh air compared to know-it-all whiny brat Max"

I'd say it's the other way if around you ask me. I mean, sure Max is annoying but at least he was kind of nice and not so hyperactive all the time. Bonnie on the other hand acted wild and stupid. I know she's just a little kid but that's no excuse. They act like they have to make the series about stereotypical females. All the other years we had a competitive tomboy, sweet coordinator, cheerful girly-girl, and a wild jungle girl. In other words, unique females. Now, we have a ten-year-old barbie doll, and pint sized idiot.

Annoying, spoiled and useless.

She's worse than Max.

10 Dawn Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. ...read more.

Personally, I remember despising Dawn at first. And why was that? Stupid propaganda and shippers that's what. With everyone commenting on how /awful/ and /useless/ Dawn was, I didn't really know any better and I agreed. It wasn't until I started watching the DP series that I understood how not awful and useless Dawn was.

Dawn is one of my favorite Pokemon characters up to date. And no, it wasn't because she was pretty or anything, but it was the character development she's been through. Unlike May, who managed to succeed in everything last minute (forgive me if I'm wrong, it's been a while since I watched the advanced gen, and I do like May thank you very much), I loved how Dawn was pretty much set to fail during the beginning. It showed that contests weren't easy. You had to work hard to reach your goals. And I believe that the writers did a great job with that for Dawn. During the beginning of her journey Dawn was overly confident, and determined to be a Top Coordinator. She ...more

I hate how everyone dislikes Dawn so much. I mean, just because she wears short skirts, does feminine things (like a girl is supposed to), and likes cute Pokemon, everybody hates her.

(1) There is nothing wrong with wearing mini-dresses when your a girl. Like how there is nothing wrong with a girl wearing shorts and crop-tops (yeah, if Misty can do it, so can Dawn, there just being feminine)

(2) As I said early, there's nothing wrong with a girl being feminine. Not all girls are tomboys. And besides, I don't think Dawn's all that girly. I mean, she says words like "awesome" and "cool", catches really strong Pokemon (Mamoswine, Quilava), has natural athletic abilities, and has the ability to defend herself like Misty and Iris.

(3) Some of you see where I'm getting at with my examples. Now listen, as you can tell, all the female companions have a thing for cute Pokemon, but for some reason all of the fans only get mad at Dawn because of it. I mean, come on, it's a ...more

It saddens me how Dawn is so high up on this list just because she's girly and beat May and does contests just like May too. I love May, but just because she was the first coordinator does not mean Dawn is automatically worse than her or a horrible character. Unlike Serena she did not cry over her first loss. After losing three times she cried but quickly got back up because she realized that it would not change anything and that she needs to work hard and be determined. This is character development. After realizing what she was doing wrong, she learned from her mistakes and was able to beat May using that knowledge. At least she did not cut her hair and change her whole look thinking that will change everything (which by the way it does not) I also don't like the fact that people hate on her because of her style of clothing. Like have you seen Misty in some episodes? She shows more than Dawn ever had but no everyone still thinks it's fine for her to wear more revealing clothes BUT ...more

What's so wrong with Dawn? I can understand finding overly-girliness annoying, but Dawn never did it in an obnoxious way and is actually a good character to watch. And she can wear whatever she wants too, like Misty and Serena can (the latter's fan service is kind of disturbing from the writers because she's 10, but other than that they can wear whatever they want). in my humble opinion Dawn is a girly girl done right. - Liinde

No. Get Gary off of here. He's awesome. Seriously.

Gary, Misty, and Brock shouldn't be on here. And come on guys, give Team Rocket a little credit. They've been after Pikachu for 17 years and still haven't given up. At least be impressed by their determination. - Pikachulover1

I have no problem with gary what so ever. There's nothing wrong with a friendly rivalry. And him and ash are prime examples. Now look at him he's a Pokemon researcher now and I think it's pretty cool. I couldn't think of anyone better that would be a cooler researcher than gary.

He treated Ash like a dirt and people love him then say Ash is their idol. Wow -_-

12 Jessie

I don't agree, Jessie had a bad life, I'm pretty sure her dad died and her mom disappeared trying to catch Mew. She was taken into an orphanage that was so broke she ate snow. She grew up and wanted to be a nurse but failed cause the school was for Chanseys. She meet James at Pokemon tech and got the worst score ever (with James. ) She is also mistreated by guys. She had a awful life that made her the way she is today, her and Misty is the most realistic.

I like Jessie too... Sure she can be bossy and rude but deep down she cares a lot about James and Meowth and it's her bad past that made her the way she is. While I can understand people being annoyed by Team Rocket, they aren't that bad in my opinion. - Liinde

I'm so glad this whore is on this list. I've hated her since I was in eleventh grade for her bitchy behavior. Why, she makes me pleased that I have no girlfriend. I wish that Meowth killed her.

If anyone asks me, I'm sick of how she and her teammates seem show up in every episode of Pokemon, recite a poem, and scream, "We're blasting off again! " whenever they lose. What would please me a lot is if Team Rocket, except Meowth, actually dies and gets sent to hell, where they can be tortured forever.

Everyone compares Jessie to Misty when the two are actually different. Yeah, they are both tsunderes but, unlike Misty, Jessie had a bad life. And I know what you're saying "They both had terrible lives." Actually no, Misty just grew up with sisters who teased her every now and then. I mean, I know how it feels but that's no excuse to go around beating people up. Jessie on the other hand grew up in an orphanage and was forced to eat snow and mess like this. Not only that, but Jessie's a villain, which doesn't make her personality that strange. But Misty, you're a hero, so act like it!

My opinion james is good at heart it's just the decisions that he made were bad in my mind james actually likes Pokemon and if he would just get away from those two big mouths he could have a great future I mean come on who wants to spend their whole life blasting off time and time again

Oh come this girl shouldn't even be on this list. She needs to have her one website about how stupid and annoying she is. But then her stupidity would probably cause the Internet to crash. Bianca grow up and then you can be a trainer but you have a mind of a five year old but then again a five year old is probably smarter than you.

A five year old could write a better comment than whatever it is you just said. - Thifer20

I like it when Ash get pushed, rushed and everything else. Lets face it, Bianca had way better Pokemon in the games than Ash will ever use, and there fore he should be replaced. And lets face it, Bianca had an awesome personality too.

I want to drop kick her in the face, she's so annoying. I seriously can't stand her always running around like a stupid, blonde airhead.

From this character to up, they are all good (in my opinion). Sure, Bianca can be a little annoying, but she still is unique from all other characters. And yes, Ash may be the worst trainer ever, but he still cares for pokemon. I'm not even sure why everyone else Bianca and above is hated. They are all good characters.

This girl can be a little annoying, but I appreciate that they gave Iris a rival instead of not giving her any like Misty. But I wish she was... Stronger? She is kind of useless and forgettable honestly. - Liinde

This girl is annoying as hell. She's rude and eats other people's food. She's like a cross between Harley and Ursula, she become a "Dragon Buster" just because she got beaten in a land where dragon Pokemon live. Please. And then every time she loses a match she'll be like "It's not a dragon type so it doesn't count." That girl is freakishly obsessing over dragon type Pokemon

LOL I love how someone chose the country instead of the character - NobodyFamous

Oh my good, you always say that your going to beat Iris, but you never do! You always talking, but your so weak that you get out on the first round in every battle tournament!

16 Alain

The league isn't the sole reason why I despise Alain. Alain had so much potential to be such a good character, but he ended up bland and predictable. He only lost twice but never lost again after those losses. You know he's going to win because that's the kind of character he is. He doesn't even need you typical wish fulfillment, he just wins. I have a feeling they only made him like this because of Charizard and they have to make Charizard a complete bad ass for marketing purposes. (YES, Charizard is STILL overrated and a marketing ploy. Charizard as a Pokemon is very well known and liked despite losing some of its popularity lately)

It really sucks. I loved the concept they had with Alain, being an anti-hero protagonist who is being manipulated by the bad guy and all, as well as showing of mega evolution, but it just ended up not as good as it could've been. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I wish Alain had more struggle as a trainer as it would feel more realistic. ...more - Rue

The only thing that... Kind of annoyed me was that Ash lost the League while they made it look like he would win this time. But other than that, I don't hate Alain. And still better than Tobias, at least Alain was introduced before and didn't have a Darkrai and a Latios... - Liinde

You fool Alain! People hate you because you're a villain! If you challenge me to a battle, I will forfeit it immediately! - AngusMacdonaldMii

Am I the only one that doesn't care for his bond with marron? It's so shoe-horned I can't even take it seriously! I get they only had 5 episodes to work with, but it's like after episode 1 ( when they met) they suddenly became so close they do anything for each other. Yuck!

17 Kenny

I hated the way he treated Dawn in the series. How are you supposed to be in love with her when all you do is put her down? That's like saying "a boy picks on you because He loves you" Even though that's not love. It never is and shouldn't be. He was the cause of her trauma, because HE WAS THE ONE WHO STARTED CALLING HER DIAMOND DANDRUFF. Who does that to a person they love?! Then he got the nerve to have a battle with ash to determine who Dawn gets to travel with as if she's property. Dawn can make her own decisions. I'm glad she went with Ash. And when the series end, I hope she ends up with that other trainer who liked her. At least he was trying to impress her and not put her down. I don't care what dawn does in her future as long as he's not in it.

Kenny is a little prick, that is what he is. I hated him since I first saw him in the anime. His first appearance was making fun of Dawn in front of her new friends (Ash and Brock) by telling them embarrassing childhood stories about her. And we have to believe he wants to be with her? He doesn't respect her. You know what he deserves? Dawn to drop kick him right in the face. - Rue

I really didn’t like this guy at all...he was just a jerk to Dawn and annoying.

I think Kenny is my 4th most hated character on this show...this guy’s annoying, corny, & pathetic. - ZettaGirl23

Just because he's overrated? That alone doesn't make him bad in my opinion... - Liinde

Only because Looker's not here, this spotlight hogging disloyal ungrateful fake dragon will be the target of my red +1.

Are you serious, charizard should not even be on this list. Ok charizard didn't exactly listen to ash at first but that was due to ash's lack of experience at the time. Now he and charizard are almost as close as he and pichachu are. So in my opinion charizard on this list is like saying that a magikarp is the most powerful Pokemon of all time. Seriously this is worst choice on this list that I have seen

Ah yes, those stupid and utterly annoying Magikarp jokes... What idiots. - IceFoxPlayz

Heh, I bet the people who put Charizard on this list never watched past season 1. Charizard is definitely one of Ash's best and most reliable Pokemon these days, he shouldn't be here.

19 Tobias

Lawl I'm here just to prevent Ash from winning the league. Tobias is a character that should have never been made.

A Darkrai... And a Latios... How is that even possible in the anime? I'll bet his full team was legends. Unfair, man, unfair.

When Ash finally beats Paul, gets out of the Top 8 position, and is this close to winning the league, this guy comes in. No, not with your average Raichu or Caterpie, but with a bunch of stinkin' legendary Pokemon. And in the end, he creams all 6 of Ash's Pokemon with 2 and becomes the victor. Either the writers wanted to make Ash seem cooler, or they tried to give us another so-called rival we wanted Ash to wipe the floor with.

Cheater in the league. Tobias the cheater.

Its Stephan! I see what you guys did there by spelling his name like that! - ZettaGirl23

Annoying as hell! - Userguy44

No one cares about what your name is Stephen! You say you want to change your name but if you do, it will still be spelled the same way! It will still be pronounced wrong! Get over it! - Pikachulover1

I have a feeling his name is actually pronounced "Wrong".

I hate him the most because he's such a know nothing know it all. He thinks he knows everything about pokemon and in his FIRST appearance, he started saying that Ash was weak and that he could have done better. I mean he didn't say it in those words, but that was definitely the gist of it. Normally, I wouldn't hate him just for that since he was just a kid and didn't really know how difficult battling was, but even AFTER he traveled with Ash and May and saw how hard they trained and how difficult coordinating and battling were, he STILL looked down on them for only getting in the top 8. When he bragged to misty saying that may wouldn't have gotten so far without him, I wanted her to punch him. I mean, she's a GYM LEADER, she knows how hard people train, instead, she just tells him to be EASIER on may. And in another episode, I can't really remember much except for the fact that he was left alone for some reason with all the pokemon and May's munchlax was there and he WENT TO SLEEP ...more

This guy has no sense, no logic, no wisdom, no purpose, no life, and no knowledge. Seriously who's ever a fan of this guy needs to get there head physically examined

I want to kill that little demon.

He's super annoying and he's such a know-it-all little kid who he thinks he know about Pokemon and I feel sorry for May who have annoying little brother.

Take Clemont off the list! He's awesome, he's cute, handsome, protective, motherly, and nerdy. His inventions explode and it's funny.

Because he replaced Brock (well, after Cilan)? That doesn't make him bad... He's actually good unlike Serena. - Liinde

Good except for his stupid suit.

He shouldn't be in here, he is way better than Brock.

His stupidity didn't bother me, but the fact that they made Ash lose the League to him... That doesn't make me hate him as a character, just slightly annoyed. - Liinde

He's so stupid that it's beyond grating. Not to mention his Riolu evolved so the writers could have an excuse to (once again) kick Ash out of the league. - KalloFox34

Cameron is a completely unnecessary character. Him being an idiot and being good at battles was already done by Bianca, only better. And after he beat Bianca in the Unova League, that's when I began to hate him.

He is one of worst Ash's rivals ever! I was very disappointed when he became so stupid! I wanted him to be like Ritchie and not an idiot cheater. - Nectaria

24 Dawn's Piplup

He's good, I don't see what's so terrible about him... - Liinde

Very obnoxious & stupid. At least Pikachu has shown that he can deal with Team Rocket on his own. But this self-centered dumbass only knows how to scream when given a chance to show itself to Team Rocket. And it so friken bratty & mostly remains bratty though out the show. To this day I'm confused as to why she didn't choose Turtwig over that brat since how Piplub acted around Dawn. Also his reason for not wanting to evolve is the most stupid and illogical reason to not want to evolve ever. Seriously, just cause you evolved how would that magically make Dawn forget the moment they meet?

I give credit where credit is due piplup is strong but it needs grow up and stop acting like a spoiled little brat. It's started a lot of fights with a lot of Pokemon because it doesn't like anyone ruining its pride or just for stupid reasons

He's the worst starter a pokegirl has had (because ash had that ugly turd treecko). Team Oshawott all the way!

Where do I even begin. So first, when you were hatched, you used Headbutt on just about everything and caused problems with Gavantula. Then later, you just had to go Headbutt the Foongus didn't you! Then you got everyone (except for Oshawott, darn) plus yourself poisoned! How much dumber can you get? - Pikachulover1

Brock really really goes on my nerves; first he falls in love with every goodlooking girl he meets, except the main character ones, making him look really creepy like some stalker or a dude who would wait for you in a dark ally.. You get my drift. It too, makes him look to be very superficial, because all he cares about seems to be looks, given that he always falls in love at first glance.

His family sucks too, and he is no better, with his always absent parents ( even they don't care about their load of kids) and he himself who left his siblings all alone to themselves when he left for the last time, with nothing but the next oldest brother in charge who seems to be nothing more than another Brock in looks and in behaviour (see, even the writers don't care about them enough to create an individual character).

Thirdly, his appearance with his always military colored clothes and his seemingly not existing eyes are not nice to look at in my opinion, you could say I have ...more

Who added Brock? People, Brock's the only reason the Anime even WAS good! This guy's awesome!

Brock is good. I can understand how the "falling in love with every girl" could be annoying, even though that personally never bothered me, but to me one gag isn't enough to completely hate a character. Unless that's all this character is reduced to, and I can understand him not being as interesting as before by the time Sinnoh rolled, but he's not that bad. - Liinde

Honestly, I can't hate him. In fact, he's one of my favorites, but it DOES get annoying that he's constantly reduced to someone who falls instantly in love with every attractive female. I mean, he's a great battler when the writers allow him to be, but even then sometimes they make him downright mean. Like in that one advanced generation episode, he just joined a contest because he had a crush on someone else and very nearly won. The issue was that he KNEW may wanted to be top coordinator. Again, not an issue IF HE WAS SERIOUS ABOUT BEING A COORDINATOR, but he ONLY joined because of a girl. Had he won, the ribbon would have been useless. I mean, even if may HADN'T won, we would have at least known that whoever won it was going to use it to go to the grand festival. I'm just saying that in that episode he was uncharacteristically mean spirited. Ash also joined a contest or two if I remember correctly, but I don't think they were official, but even if they were, he would have used the ...more

She's just downright cruel in my opinion. Remember the episode Yes in Dee-Dee! It's Dawn!? She was so cruel to Dawn and was possibly at her worst that episode.
EDIT: And why is she below Barry?! He is awesome and the best pokemon rival! - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

She's such a diva and drama queen. She snotty sassy and snobby. She's like Harley in a dress and pigtails.

Is just jerk to cause drama. No personality besides being a sore loser and she had no reason to be so cruel to Dawn.

She is a stupid jerk

He's cute, but I wish he was used more than just being the cute baby Pokemon. He wanted to evolve, not to mention Iris is a fighter and not some poser-with-babies-Pokemons so that would have been better for both of them. But I never hated him. - Liinde

Ohh.. Your so innocent... Not. Your innocence didn't work out to well with Ash and Oshawott, did it? When those two were training for the rematch against Lenora, you made the waterfall go wicked fast and messed them up! Even though I hate Oshawott, Ash isn't TOTALLY stupid! - Pikachulover1

Feel sorry for the guy in the anime. He's just been Togepi 2.0 for all of the Isshu series but he wants to be fully evolved.

Normally having a wobbuffet is like watching paint dry but jessie's wobbuffet is so damn entertaining. Always popping out of its pokeball when you least expect it. And my favorite part is when jessie gets mad every time it comes out.

Whoever put this is stupid. Wobbuffet is awesome

Actually, he was fine to me. Dawn's piplup was annoying as she was

She is the best pokegirl in my life. - Maylover00714

Whoever put this down needs to think about this

1. May is not the worst she is sweet, opimistic and very big hearted

2. She is so darn pretty but to tell you the truth I HATE how I look but considering my brother saying I look like her I somehow disagreed.

3. She dresses in very unique clothing.
So then folks that is why I like may see you later!

For me, I liked May the most because she was in the first Pokemon season I ever watched but that may seem a little biased.

Comparing her to other characters, her character is one of the most developed. She went from disliking Pokemon to having a dream revolving around Pokemon. She has pretty sweet Pokemon, Blaziken, Venusaur, Skitty (In my defense, her skitty was pretty strong), Munchlax, Squirtle (Or Wartortle, I honestly can't remember if she evolved), Eevee (And Glaceon, EEVUIII IS BEST Pokemon).

The only exception I'd make is Beautifly which in all honesty is one of those weak bug Pokemon you can get at the very start of a Pokemon game.

Her goal was very clear, much like Dawn's. Misty's goal was like background information and Iris and Serena can easily be the worst Pokemon companions so I'm not even going to bother mentioning their goals.

Plus... SHE'S ONE OF THE ONLY CHARACTERS IN THE SHOW THAT ACTUALLY HAVE A FATHER. I can only think of four other ...more

I don't see what is with some May fans today. Before I was okay with the fact that people like May but now it's annoying. Almost all of them say she's all cute and sweet and stuff and in they end they get mad when someone says they don't like her? Really! I mean, sure she's not a bad character but she's just to overrated. And I know some May fans aren't like that but it seems like most are with all the hate they give people for disliking her.

The only thing that ditto is good for is transforming that's all it can do what a lousy excuse for a Pokemon I'm glad it's on the list I just wished it was first on the list or at least the top five.

A pink blob can transform into anything.

I hate that pice of goo

I like it it's help with breeding so it's easier to trade & complete pokedex & depending if u have certain things get shinies/a certain nature of Pokemon.

I guess Togepi's purpose was to be the "cute baby Pokemon" of the group, and he fulfilled his role well in my opinion. - Liinde

Oh my god, all you did was cry. You saved the group maybe 2-3 times, when Psyduck could've done the same. You were useless, unlike Psyduck. You got all the positive attention when Psyduck deserved it. You aren't even cute, there's no reason to like you.

Whoever added this very cute Pokemon is insane. It's so cute!

Ugly in the anime, ugly in the game. You stink, literally! You're trash that kindergarteners like. It doesn't get much lamer than that! And another thing, in the anime, how is it possible for YOU to move that much trash overnight? You don't even have legs! - Pikachulover1

The producers have definitely run out of ideas for designs if they're going to make a Pokemon like this. I personally don't like or dislike this Pokemon, though.

36 N

N is one mysterious character but I understand his love for Pokemon the thing that I don't understand is why he can't stand Pokemon battles. Pokemon battles aren't a way to abuse Pokemon it's a way to boost the bonds between trainers and their Pokemon. But hey the guy doesn't mean any harm he just has his own way of caring about Pokemon.

His anime appearance has pretty much turned a well written and well developed anti-hero into somewhat of a dumbass in distress who either gets hurt or gets captures. I get that he's willing to put his wellbeing aside for Pokemon even in the face of danger, but he does this a lot and honestly it gets old. There's even one episode where it's pretty much just him taking the hits for a Braviary. Also, he's condescending but it's not in character. He's supposed to talk too fast and mysterious, but he just talks like every normal person. In short he's pretty much an SJW trying to sound heroic.

N was just arrogant and self-righteous beyond belief. I'm sure he's rather have a whole building burn with people in it then to send out water Pokemon to help just because he doesn't want Pokemon working with trainers. Idiot.

In the games, he is pretty awesome. Like, in the original black and white, he is this dude who's all like "dude, your Pokemon talk" and later he said he is part of team plasma. But in the second version of the games, he is like, so awesome. - AnonymousChick

He was such a douche. Well, I guess that was his character purpose. But he's still a trashy person like Paul. - Liinde

Should be a lot higher in my opinion! Damian is hands down, the worst Pokemon trainer ever in my opinion! Heck he is worse than Serena in my opinion! At least Serena actually cares for her Pokemon and never abandoned her own Pokemon and think it was funny, whilst Damian on the other hand, abandoned his own charmander in the rain (he could've died if it wasn't for ash and friends saving charmander's poor life) and he didn't even care for his actions! Ugh! Worst trainer ever in my opinion! - UltraLunalaX

She wanted to perfect...bubbles...

Boring as hell.

Literally all 3 of the new girls don't deserve to be here. Mallow hasn't had much focus to have an legit reason to dislike her. (She's not made for sex appeal, you idiot.) Lillie is hated mostly by salty amourshippers, annoying (opinionated) and that she's "not like the game Lillie" (Which no one bothers to understand that the anime is an entirely different canon and doesn't follow the games for that reason) and Lana? She's such a sweet girl who also doesn't take crap from anyone that harms Pokemon who is the most underrated of the 3. And for some reason the person who submitted her didn't bother leaving a comment on why they hate her, so we can't comprehend why she's hated except for the assumption that amourshippers need to bash her for not being Serena. - Rue

Am I the only one who wanted to strangle Alolan Meowth after seeing it in the anime? - Synchronocity

I feel so sorry for Meowth. He lived on the streets and was always so hungry. He fell in love and tried to impress another Meowth who belonged to a trainer, but she was really rude and told him she only cared about humans. So he actually LEARNT TO WALK AND TALK LIKE A HUMAN, which is a huge feat for a Pokémon and shows just how strong his love was...but then the other Meowth just thought it was weird! After everything he's done the snobbish brat turned him down. Poor Meowth joins Team Rocket because Rocket was the first word he ever learnt, and later in the anime he meets the other Meowth again, who was abandoned. Meowth challenged the leading Persian and defeats him, but instead of impressing the Meowth she falls for the Persian and rushes to his aid. Ouch.

Skyla in the games was great. In the anime... Well admittedly she sucked as a Gym Leader. - Liinde

So dumb. Really, she should of told her grandpa to get someone else for the gym or never done her sky battles in the first place and just have given out the badges like Volkner did. She can figure out a strategy for electric types, but other trainers couldn't figure out strategies for flying types? I'm really surprised her grandpa didn't take her out of being a gym leader actually. Her sky battles Makes her seem like a know it all bimbo.

Disgrace to all gym leaders out there. "Air battles" really talk about a childish concept right there. The saying the apple doesn't fall far from the tree definitely doesn't apply to her because in her case the apple flew so far from the tree that you'd need a gps system to track it

"Hey Challengers! Since I'm sick and tired of being a gym leader, Imma' battle you kids in my head! Then I'll have sometime to fly planes! "

If you wanted to fly, then be pilot cause it is obvious that you suck at your position.
