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 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!

Rectum has been ruining the show for years.

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

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

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

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!

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.

There's no doubt that abusing and abandoning your Pokemon is too mean.
But after watching Serena, I realized he was much good.
Remember, he has a dark past that's made him so rude
And he's very interesting because he's so mysterious
His character has layers and depth. Unlike Serena, who's bland, boring and shallow
The conclusive truth is that he needs sympathy.
As for Serena, it was too bad of her to get sympathy by cutting her hair

5 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

"And not far off from being as bad as Dawn"

I agree with everything else you said except for this. Misty and Dawn can't be compared. They're are too different! Dawn was a sweet, brave, playful, and cheerful poke-girl. Misty was a rude, fearful, stubborn, and pessimistic bully. Not only that but, but Dawn matured and went head on to reach her goal. Misty got worse and worse, and did nothing to become a water Pokemon master except enter one or two battles. And the last thing that I have to say may make you angry but, I think Dawn is a bigger tomboy that Misty. I mean, Dawn loved high-fives, saying words like "cool" and "awesome", and would do anything to save a Pokemon, whether it be sliding down a huge mountain (A Staravia is Born), or risking her own life (Buizel Your Way Out Of This) and (Hungry for the Good Life). What did Misty do? She worried her friends about going shopping, wore revealing clothes (bikinis, crop-tops, short-shorts, etc...) and got scared over every bug she ...more

6 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

Voting up to help Misty.

The only thing he talks about is being a connossieur and cooking.

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

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.)

Yeah. Because everyone wants a female version of Cilan. This is why Pokemon has become lame over the years. Absolutely unneccessary characters. This list is living proof. - Pikachulover1

I see you only hate generation 5 character. Honestly I hate burgundy too quite immature - Pokemonfan23

Does she know how to not YELL!? Why the heck did she have to bother Ash to get rid of his Pokemon? Nothing likable about her at all.

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.

Bonnie is just like the Jigglypuff of the Pokemon show, because they are both arrogant, annoying, immature, and plain out useless.

Absolutely worthless.

Bonnie is awesome and funny. She better than Max and she nothing like him except for the younger sibling.

I'm sure Bonnie was better without Serena there to teach her go shopping. She is ADORABLE on her own.

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

Serena was better.

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

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

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.

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'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!

Jessie is the only female character on this show I dislike. Sure you may say "but Dawn and Iris are annoying! " Those two may be annoying, but Jessie definitely takes the cake. She's rude, bossy, and completely domineering towards her teammates James and Meowth. She may be the reason why I don't like watching the Team Rocket trio that much.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

16 Cameron

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 was supposed to be a character like Paul, but failed in every way. Very unnecessary in my opinion

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

What can you say about Cameron he's as idiotic as they come. I mean he doesn't know that you have to have 8 gym badges to get in the Pokemon league and that a full battle consists of six Pokemon. He ain't no trainer he's a laughing stock. But I gotta say he does add a lot of character to the show. He just needs to figure out how to use it right.

17 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

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

Why did he win the league in XYZ

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!

18 Kenny

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

How is he not already on this list? And how is Dawn on this list and not Kenny? Oh, right. I guess it's because he is so forgettable! I always hated the way he treated Dawn like a trophy, and was jealous of her and Ash's friendship. He is also the reason she was traumatized by Plusle and Minen. He always talked down to her and NEVER cared about HER feelings! He " wanted" her because he had a crush on her but doesn't care about her as a person. He has NO good qualities whatsoever. He's so pathetic that I almost feel sorry for him. Almost.

I have a brother named Kenny, and he is such an ass! If you ever meet him, would you kill him for me?

I agree with eventer51314. This guy got on my nerves! He's a bully to Dawn and acts like a jerk. He always humiliates her. I wanna shove him facefront in a wet dirty pool of rocks and sludge. - TwilightKitsune

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

He is one of the best fire type pokemon... Enough said! - Crystalsnow

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.

No way should he be here.. This guy is the main reason I love charizard so much! He's definitely one of ash's best Pokemon

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

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.

Max deserves to get his butt spanked!

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

Take Clemont off the list. He best Boi, He doesn't even DESERVE to be on this list.

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

Definitely inferior to Brock, but much better than Cilan. If they kept him, and brought back Brock, that would be pretty cool, in my opinion.

24 Dawn's Piplup

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?

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

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

Dawn is a good character, but no offense to her, but her Piplup is mean. It is a brat in my opinion. I can't even tell wether it's a boy or a girl.

25 Brock Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . ...read more.

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

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

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

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.

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

27 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.

Why would you bring in the concept of legendary based teams

28 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

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

She is a stupid jerk

I don't like her she's annoying, causes drama for no particular reason the only thing that makes me only dislike her instead hate her is because she looks like Teto.. Yeah I know stupid reason but come on! Who could hate teto?

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.

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.

I grew up obsessed with the original series, and I loved the connection between Ash, Misty and Brock - I felt they all brought something to the team. But when May and Max joined the group dynamic turned sour and I hated it. Max is so irrelevant that it couldn't be because of him, leaving May. I always felt like she was missing something, she wasn't as feisty or as funny as Misty, she wasn't as sweet as Dawn, she was just kind of there...

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.

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

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.

Just a ugly stinky piece of trash who fell of the ugly tree and hit all the branches on the way down

The name says it all.. RUBBISH

Always pessimistic. He says it's a "waste of time" battling ash. Yeah ash kinda sucked at seasons 14 or 15 but he doesn't need to show off like a snobby kid. Who wants to be friends with that? Oh right, no wonder he has no friends...

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

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!

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.

He’s better than Jessie and James. - Userguy44

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.

Only rule 34 material and nothing else. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

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.
