Worst Things About Pokemon

These are just a few things about Pokemon that tend to irritate people. PLEASE vote AND share your opinion! Also look at the Worst Pokemon Characters list. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

Ash never ages

Pokemon writers please age ash to the age of at least 13, by the end of his journey , let him be the champion and make him marry misty or Serena and have kids who will follow his footsteps

Meh who cares. But they should have ditched ash a long time ago

I can make my own Pokemon anime series where Pokemon don't say their name.

Ash is what ruined pokemon for me and is why I don't like it now! New protagonist please! He gets very... boring... maybe if he got older he would go away and we'd get a new main character... but he won't... stupid Ash...

The TPCi voice actors

Their voices don't fit the ages of the characters, their acting is monotone and flat consistently, and they generally have egos large enough that gravity can't bring them down.

Nice name calling, man, real mature to call them that as you always are.

They suck so much I can't even fathom it. Like do they actually think this is a realistic voice? Nobody would talk like these whiny 5 year olds in real life.

Yeah...yeah 'll side with this. god that new cast is terrible

Horrible for 7+ years and counting: ruined Ash, Brock, TR, and everyone else in the English dub!

The Fanbase

Haters of people who have been fans since the 90s when it started.

Competitive freaks,genwunners and rule 34 (porn) = pokémon fanbase

I am so sick of fans that treat anyone who doesn’t like all of the same things they do like they’re not human. Grow the F up already.


Too Many Episodes

This is such a weak reason

Annoying voices
Ash changes his friends

Welcome to the real world. Sometimes you have to move on to new friends. Like when you move or something. And anyway, they usually return.

Why do his friends always change from region to region? You get attached to them and them poof they're gone.

Brock and misty was way better than those other people!

Misty And Brock Are WAY
Cooler Than Those Other Gooberz

The show repeats itself

It's so BORING!(Except Twilight wings and pokemon sun and moon.)

I can almost guarantee that these things will happen next in the show over time. Pignite is going to evolve into Emboar and not listen to Ash until Ash breaks down and cries and blames himself, somehow they're going to say that the Toxic badge is not an official Unova Gym Badge and make Ash go get the Legend Badge, They'll find out that Iris is related to that Gym and Ash will have to battle her, and later on Cilan will go and become a chef. The End.

Dude who said that he or she can guarantee what happened all of those didn't happen

Not recognising TR (team rocket) is getting pretty repetitive and battling with them too

You want to evolve? Trade!

I know this makes no sense. Pokemon existed before people so how would they be able to evolve ONLY through trading. It makes no sense because the wild Pokemon can't evolve!

If you trade a pokemon, it's basically never coming back, so I just wouldn't bother with trade evolution.

This is especially annoying if no one near your home pays it.

They never give you back the pokemon

Bad voice acting
Elite four and full restores

Just be lucky the Elite Four doesn't use reviving items to revive their Pokemon.

This is so annoying! I can't believe that they use full restores in the games, but you can consider yourself lucky if you ever see someone use a full restore (or anything as a matter of fact) in the anime.

You guys are weak if your annoyed by this

This is v. annoying

The Contenders

Serena's obsession with ash

Serena you should get a better boyfriend , because ash will never age , when you will be 100 years , ash would be like your grandson , a grandson of 10 years

I hate amourshipping. Serena deserves better love interest

I would shake my head opposingly, but really think about this. If Ash was aware that he had a love-struck stalker traveling with him, how would he react? What would he feel? The idea, at least to me, would be to ask them to talk. Even if he didn't know, Ash should've been uneasy to be around her. She's not well mentally!

Why is this such a bad thing? Quite a few girls in the past liked ash, but no one minded.

Day-Care Man doesn't know where the Egg came from

No offense 9-year-old who commented before me but you're too young to be on this site :)

Really guys, Pokemon is a KIDS game, The Man can't just say "Hey an Egg came from the vagina"

This is a kids game you want him to say "(Pokemon you left) and (Pokemon you left) had sex to make an egg" you really want him to say that do you if you do you must have a really dirty mind

He should say "some eggs are at the beach some in the forest and some in the jungle" that would be better than saying "it came from the vagina" you idiots

Ash never catches a legendary Pokemon

Why , that’s why I hate ashhh

Pikachu loses to wild Pokemon and weak Pokemon

The worst battles ever occured in Pokemon anime were the Unova region battles , worst session

Pikachu: Beats legendary Pokemon then loses to a level 5 snivy.

To be fair, he and Ash were caught off guard during that battle, as Zekrom had taken away Pikachu's electric attacks. They were out of sync.

Another annoying thing is that Pikachu keeps beating over powered Pokemon, but loses to people who have never battled before. Either that's being kind or something's wrong.

Shouldn't Pikachu be at level 100 after 10+ years? But then we watch it lose to Water-Type Pokemon in the first gym. HOW DUMB IS THAT?

Overrated Pokemon

People rate charizard based on the anime, but in the games just toss some pebbles on it and goodbye

Yes, Charizard is just too overrated. People who say the he isn't overrated is just proving even more that Charizard is overrated, by saying that. See? Plus, now Charizard has TWO megas. That is REALLY unfair. Charizard already had annoyingly enough attention, and now Charizard fans are going nuts. Bulbasaur needs more attention, Bulbasaur is more helpful than Charmander in the gyms. Ugh, it's just grinding my gears even more than Klink! Just ONE stone edge, and it's goodbye Charizard.

Yes, Charizard is barely overrated, I never tried one. But I tried ONLY once. Also pikachu, it's annoying. His voice, it's hard to evolve overrated pokemon. But not lucario, lucario's already evolved from an underrated pokemon. So I think Lucario is only the good Overrated pokemon.

Why does everyone think Charizard is the MOST overrated? Rayquaza and Mewtwo are... times more overrated than Charizard

Zubats Zubat, known in Japan as Zubat, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Running out of repels in the middle of Rock Tunnel without a Pokemon that knows Flash. Zubats everywhere. I'm Dead.

Zubats are my favorite Pokemon

If u have them don't play Pokemon go

This is what my code would look like after the unova victory road:
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!

What are the hamburgers made of!?

They probably kill Miltank and Tepig to make hamburgers. Then, sometimes, you see those Pokemon eat hamburger. Cannibals.

So mil tanks eating miltank burgers is good u say?

I think one of the Pokedex entries says that Cherrim or something like that has a certain taste. Doesn't that mean that someone had to EAT one to find that out?!

Ash's rivals are jerks

I think the nicest was Gary Paul and Trip were really jerks except Paul was more abusive Trip just wanted strong Pokemon but he didn't abuse any of his Pokemon Paul abused Chimchar Pokemon CRUELTY good thing when Chimchar was Infernape it kicked Paul's ass

Specifically, Paul. He catches Pokemon based off of their strength and move set. That is cruel and a waste of time. Just teach that Pokemon a move you want it to learn

Everyone of Ash's rivals has been jerks to him or Pokemon or both. GO ASH'S RIVALS!

Competitive Players

So your not allowed to be "the very best" of the list

How whoever Ash travels with doesn't have a last name

This always bothered me. When they say that the winner is Dawn from Twinleaf Town, there could always be two Dawns. How do they know which one is which?!

Hello! There's Todd Snap and Tracey Sketchit...Gary Oak, of course (not a traveling companion, but still an important friend of Ash)

I always thought that Alexander would be a good last name for Clemont.

Gym leader uses potion

your weak if this annoys you

Me: Yay! You're about to die, yay! (Presses weak move to save PP)
Gym leader: Sorry. (Uses Hyper Potion)
Me: Nu! (Causes tiny amount of damage)
Gym leader: (Kills my Pokemon)

This always happens to me
enemy pokemon :12/76
uses hyper potion
kills my pokemon
gotta start all over again

Critical hit!

I don't really see whats so bad about critical hits

When you are:
"I am gonna catch it!
I am gonna catch it!
One more move."
And then critical hit...


The main reason why I lost high win streak

Lol wild Pokemon have a higher crit rate than your Pokemon

Pikachu's annoying voice

Pikachu is the most cutest little thing EVER! He is like a little child that learned how to talk. His voice is just cute and adorable.

It's so cute it helps me sleep

What? Pikachus voice is so cute!


Iris always calls Ash a little kid

Now THIS annoys the crap out of me. I mean seriously? Yelling at him for being happy he has six badges? Where're YOUR badges Iris? In fact, where's that Haxorus? Or Dragonite that listens to you? Or ANYTHING?!

Hey iris, who's the one who can't evolve Axew?

Hypocrite she is also a little kid Ash controlled a Charizard Infernape Torterra Sceptile Krookodule lots of good Pokemon and he has like a million badges and Irirs barely has any badges no Haxorus and can't even control a Dragonite (well it is a pseudo legendary so you would expect it but if it was Tyranitar) maybe you should have gotten a Dratini

Team Rocket

They've done their annoying routine over 700 times, every episode they appear and do stupid crap for a dumb reason, get blown away, repeat I THINK ITS TIME TO CHANGE THINGS UP

While they're like BLAH BLAH TO PROTECT why didn't Ashfur and his friends do something?! Are they blind? They have like three minutes to do something!

Very annoying so obviously I liked when Bonnie interrupted them in the middle of their slogan and said "STOP DAYING THAT" Jessie is the worst though :/

They are actually good guys in Gen I this is why:
Giovanni needed team rocket to steal the Silph Scope so they can catch ghost Pokemon the only things at the time that could beat Psychics which Mewtwo was (Dark type didn't exist Bugs weren't good against psychics)
The Master Ball was needed to catch Mewtwo
Team Rocket was trying to save the world or else Mewtwo will kill, everyone (not unless Arceus or Red interferes)
