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

I love Chikorita, but unfortunately it was given in a region where it has a HUGE disadvantage because of how the gyms were set up. Poor thing, people only want it to make the game harder for themselves and not because they like the Pokemon. - Rue

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

Chikorita doesn't even look strong just by what it looks like. Cute pokemon though.

2 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.

Ash sucks pikachu sucks

Pika pika I'm Bob Saget

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

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

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.

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

How I feel about charmander being number 1 on the best starters list: SHUT UP ABOUT CHARIZARD! CHARIZARD MAY BE A DRAGON, BUT THERE ARE BETTER DRAGONS OUT THERE! SUCH AS SCEPTILE OR DRAGONITE! SO GIVE SOME LOVE FOR BULBASAUR AND NOT THIS GARBAGE!

4 Tepig Tepig

He is creepy and when someone calls you a Pignite it's not a compliment.

Emboar has good HP, Attack, and Special attack. Worst starter ever! Why is this number 4? You could 1 shot it because of it's bad defense and speed. By defense I mean defense AND special defense. Also emboar is the THIRD fire/fighting starter in a row. Blaziken was cool, Infernape was a faster blaziken, and emboar is that pig that keeps getting 1 shot. Tepig is cute, pignite is a meh, and emboar is an UGH! Hehe...

I hate this stupid ugly pig's guts. - Goatworlds

Leave tepig alone :( He is cute.

5 Piplup Piplup

He is awesome

Piplup is adorable

Not true piplulp is awesome

6 Chespin Chespin

His evolutions is super ugly the designs are not good

Everyone thinks he's stupid but I would choose him over Trashy Fennikin or Farting Froakie. Greninja is so overrated if ash had chosen Chespin it would be better.

7 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.

Got a problem with it

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

8 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

SAMUROTT CRUSHER OF WORLDS

9 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 like a Jakob's nacho. Farting Froakie is better

10 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?

Whoever put Treecko on this list?
I will find you.
And I will battle you.

The Newcomers

? Chesnaught Chesnaught
? Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes ...read more.

Overrated

The Contenders

11 Torchic Torchic

Are you kidding me?! Don't talk trash about the adorable little Torchie!

You mad bro?

Am I mad bro, YES I AM! TORCHIC IS THE BEST HOENN STARTER DESIGN WISE WHEN IT EVOLVES TO BLAZIKEN AND DOMINATES HOENN GYMS!

12 Froakie Froakie

I hate how poor Delphox over hear is called 'useless',' a disappointment'I hate the discrimination too! I feel so sorry for people who loved Fennekin like I did.
Ribombee Plays

It is one of the things that's so ugly it's cute, but once it evolves, it loses the cute, Greninja is overrated, and it doesn't take much to knock out any member of the Froakie line. In the battle maison. I beat a Froakie with Extreme speed! ON ACCIDENT!

Greninja is so overrated. It's really easy to take it down with any grass starter besides Chikorita

I disagree with Delphox discrimination so I hate Froakie.

13 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known as Fushigidane in Japan, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

What in the hell?! He's underrated! Bulbasaur is the reason we HAVE pokemon! idiots!

Weakest Kanto starter of them all. - pokemonrater

14 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

He is the best starter pokemon what do you mean he sucks?

Blastiose is said to be good but think again, it doesn't have amazing attack stats. All it is is a tank. You could find better tanks such as, shuckle, or carbink. Its mega makes it much better but blastoise is bad.

Most Horrible Pokémon in my opinion

15 Turtwig Turtwig
16 Mudkip Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Sorry if I offended you, but I just hate mudkip!

I HATE THAT STUPID SHOW OFF OF CUTENESS! His fanbase is stupid, he is so dumb and he even squirted water in May's face in the very first episode in pokemon hoenn region series! Torchic and treeko should not be on this list, because I love torchic so much, I can hug him all day and treeko's evolution, sceptile is badass! They are both way better than that dumb-bully water-type mudkip. Even my friend hates him.

17 Eevee Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Eevee is technically a starter Pokemon. In Pokemon : Gale of Darkness. - Rue

Eevee isn't a starter

It's so overrated!
Eevee's most overrated Eeveelution is Umbreon and Sylveon...

18 Rowlet Rowlet

ROWLET IS good U FOKIN NUUBS IT IS BETTA THEN CHIKOBITCHA.

19 Totodile Totodile

How is he the worst?

20 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

Pure type bad Pokemon to use - Hspencer
