Worst Pokemon Episodes
The Top Ten
When I saw this episode I was like what the hell man
I hate that episode
Everyon in Petalburg city acts like complete jerks to Ash and treat May and Max like royalty just because their Normans kids. - egnomac
This is like Pokemon ORAS
Nobody cares if you win the Pokemon League or even save the world, but everyone makes a big dead over contests. - yungstirjoey666
Whatever happened to the Samurai? - LittleLitten11
Is this the episode with Erika? Either way, it's...weird... - GehennaTheSecond
Oh my lord this episode was frustrating. I mean, what is wrong with the people in this episode? What kind of gym leader kicks people out because they hate perfume and what kinds of friends just sit back and do nothing as their friend gets into trouble. I’ll admit, I would have tolerated this episode way more if they actually showed Erika and her staff apologizing to ash for being so petty and unfair after he saved gloom. Makes me wonder why people were so jerky in the Kanto league adventure when compared to the rest of the series. Overall, I understand the frustrations people have with this episode and I wish we could get an episode where Erika is called out for being unfair and apologize.
I have to admit it was pretty stupid they only allowed girls into the gym. For Pete's sake, that was borderline gender discrimination! And I thought my gender had its history of being discriminatory towards females. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Ash is an idiot
I blame Nurse Joy and what's his face for sending that Anti-Virus in there. - GehennaTheSecond
Stupid Pikachu causes seizures but isn’t banned because he is the overrated mascot so they ban poor Porygon. Now Porygon2 and PorygonZ will never be in the anime
Porygon did not deserve eternal banishment!
Beauty and the Beach and A Double Dilemma are NOTHING compared to this episode. - BorisRuleV 6 Comments
I hated this awful episode!
But wait there's more! The Japanese title is "Kalos League Victory! Satoshi's Ultimate Match! "
Is this the episode where Ash loses the Kalos League? - GehennaTheSecond
I like to call this episode, "The Pokemon equivalent of Spongebob, You're Fired". LIES! LIES, WHEN WILL THE LIES END?
Hoo boy, this, is a BAD episode to sit through. And one of the worst of the series.
Actually, I like to watch black and white, its true, iris is annoying but that's what I like.
Haha! Really, the name tells you itself. The start from where everything went wrong in Black and White. - Kiteretsunu
The name tells you all
Useless episode, Iris and Axes both are annoying. A pokemon should forget most of the episodes of BW including this one.
Why is this on here? - HeavyDonkeyKong
This episode should not exist. - Raichu
I didn't like it too much but glad that Pikachu stays with Ash Ketchum.
I'm 11 years old, I knew he was going to stay with Ash and I start crying my eyeballs out. WHY WOULD ASH DO THIS?! (sob) (sob)
This is the first episode after the incident in 1997 - BorisRule
This episode has a 40 second long scene in the original copy that was taken out. PLUS, Ash and Brock were obviously amazed to see Misty wearing a bikini.
Bad for kids
There was stuff... in this episode. I didn't know what it was so I searched it up. DON'T SEARCH IT UP!
I feel bad for the male characters here - yungstirjoey666
If Serena from Pokemon were a princess against another princess, then she would be so aggressive and eager to have a sexist, jealous catfight.
Easily the worst Gen. 3 episode I've ever seen. It was so bad that it was actually BANNED in a few countries (no joke).
It was horrible to see ash and may argue and fight throughout this episode, the beginning was horrible because of ash getting mad at may just for looking into a mirror. This episode was banned in many countries due to the episode’s plot: The battle of the sexes
No more Brock or Dawn. WAAH! - N64Dude
It was the worst episode
The episode wasn't bad at all
Worst episode ever...
What? I love this episode - Neonco31
It gave me nightmares
Boring Premise, lame writing, equally boring May battle, and not even the character of the day can salvage this mess.
Seriously. Remember the part where Ash was battling Ninetales on the top of the mountain. This proved 100% he LOVED abusing Pokémon. He knocked Ninetales OFF FROM THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN and felt VERY GOOD about it. It would a million percent be a fatal fall, so many miles high, and he doesn't care at all and even cheers.
Ash didn’t win the league he’s a loser and Gingka Hagane from Beyblade is a way better character.
That was J did to Gardevoir was unforgivable.
This is one of my favorites. j was an awesome villain. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Meyer thought Serena was Clemont's girlfriend. I know, I support Geekchicshipping too, but COME ON! I think if you are going to except the fact the Serena kind of regrets not choosing Clemont in secret, you should at least stay out of the way.
All the bonding Jessie did with mimikyu... was for nothing. They got killed by ash's lycanroc which was failing almost all the time in the episode.
Such an insensitive Pokemon episode. Jessie and Meowth are horrible to James in this episode, especially Jessie. To make him trade his Victreebel is one thing, but for Jessie to send his second one flying just for latching onto her is way too far. They’re a team, yes a team of baddies but still a team who stick together, and yet they don’t respect James or his Pokemon in this episode. The episode is generally written poorly and even if you want to write Victreebel out of the series there are surely several other better, nicer ways to do it.
This episode has no logic. Light Screen doesn’t deflect attacks completely. Worse, Pikachu uses Thunder on his own ally. Swellow doesn’t even die! He gets “Thunder Armor” and becomes more powerful! I detest this episode and won’t watch it again!
Ash lost to a Level 5 Snivy! This episode is the worst one ever to me!
Levels are not so relevant in the anime, but I see your point. That was the same Pikachu that tied against a Latios. - yungstirjoey666
