Worst Starter Pokemon

The worst starters in the main series, the six off of the list are the best.

The Top Ten

1 Chikorita Chikorita

It's sad to that this is so weak. It is even sadder since I really like the design of it's evolution.

Chikorita is ugly it sucks Bayleef and meganium are so much better get this piece of trubbish away from me

Well as for my experience it doesn't do anything

It is just so ugly

2 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

If I said anything at all, people will want to kill me. And this is the Internet, where people can't accept opinions, so I won't say anything other than this is my least favorite starter, but it's only my opinion.

Whoever thinks Charmander is the strongest starter, you are a stupid noob. First of all, all starters have the exact same total number of base stats, so their all the same. Not to mention Charmander is in the first red and blue games having a type disadvantage for most gyms. Having a 4 times weakness to rock can take away a quarter of a Charizards HP in battles. Also who the hell in Game freak thought it was a good idea to give Charizard 2 mega evolutions I mean what the hell if Charizard gets 2 so should the other starters too. 2 mega evolutions made Charizard even more overrated than it already was

I'm sorry but I just could not add it in this list. It's no good against the first two gyms and it makes the game frustrating. And you have to go through Mt. Moon with no repels and stuck with a fire type. I do like Charmander but in the Red, Blue and Green games it's not very helpful at the beginning. - RoseRedFlower

Yeah right

3 Pikachu

Pikachu is a starter! In Pokemon yellow.. but he could not evolve that is why it SUCKS!

"I'm not always a starter but when I am I do it WRONG"

That's not a starter Pokemon, idiot.

Pikachu is a glass hero small and frail but amazing speed

6 Chespin Chespin

His evolutions is super ugly the designs are not good

7 Oshawott Oshawott Oshawott, Dewott, and Samurott, are three Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise that are linked through evolution.

Anyone who hates Oshawott and says it's useless and ugly obviously doesn't know Pokemon. - Goatworlds

Oshawott is absolutely perfect. Sure, it can't beat Elesa, but that's ONE gym leader, and you can't expect your starter to singlehandedly beat all the gyms for you. If you don't like Oshawott, then you are just stupid and don't understand any form of logic.

Statistically Oshawott is trash - InklingSethO

Oshawott was the worst thing ever that has happened to me. It was impossible to beat Elesa with this Illuminati otter on my team. What a disappointment, especially to the people of Oshawa. Just kidding.

8 Treecko Treecko

Treecko is my favorite starter Pokemon, he's not the best, but he's not worst.

Woah woah woah! Have I been under a rock? People actually hate treecko?

9 Fennekin Fennekin Fennekin is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Fennekin is a Fire type Pokemon, and one of the starter Pokemons in the Kalos Region. It is classified as the Fox Pokemon. Instead of eating snacks, Fennekin chew on twigs. It can be temperamental, but does it best ...read more.

Ear hair... are you kidding me Game freak?

10 Snivy Snivy

I started off with it in the game however I wish it was another type as well as grass. We hadn't gotten one since Torterra and it was such a shame to see it happen. It could have been great. - RoseRedFlower

First starter I have not liked

Annoying and sucks

It looks stupid...
