Top Ten Worst Types of Pokemon Fans

The Top Ten

1 Genwunners

My main problem with genwunners is the fact that they just aren't real fans. They consist of people who remember tidbits of Pokemon from when they were kids but have likely never even touched a game-even then, they have the audacity to complain about the new generations without knowing anything about the franchise - keycha1n

Exactly my point. They consider fans of New Pokémon stupid when they don't even know what Pokémon is for the most part themselves! - HeavyDonkeyKong

While I have nostalgic moments with earlier games but not with newer games, I honestly don't see anything wrong with newer games. I've played some newer games, and I know that newer games have their own charm to them. If I were to be handed any game, I'd play it and enjoy it. But I do have a problem with insane fans of generation 1 that don't respect opinions and hate anything that isn't gen 1. All of them are enjoyable. - Turkeyasylum

Yeah yeah yeah, Pokemon like mewtwo and charizard are good, but what about ones like dialga, rayquaza, victini, greninja and snivy? Those ones are way better in my opinion. In fact, they aren't actually true fans. When someone is a fan of a game, once they complete one of the games they can't wait for the sequel to come. Genwunners hate it more and more when a new gen comes out. I'm sure when gen 11 comes (I don't thinks so) genwunners will hate game freak. - spokesstuff87

They don't even like the 20th movie! The movie that is literally pandering to them! Why? Because it's not the exact same as the original anime, oh my god. I wish gamefreak/Pokemon company stopped using nostalgia to bait people back into Pokemon because it's not really working. - Rue

2 AmourShippers

Just like NaruhinaBlaze1, a toxic Serena fan who always bashes at Misty . I hate him just like he hates Misty, maybe he liked Misty before just because he broke up with a girl like Misty so he started to hate this character just like his ex.

I ship it, but I don't care if you ship Pokeshipping or anything like that. - Swiftfrost

Amourshippers are one of the most toxic shippers I have ever seen. They liked to bashed other ships. They are worse than Pokeshippers. Just because Serena and Ash kissed doesn't mean it is a cannon. They haven't even dated. And Ash is totally oblivious about the fact Serena likes him. Also, many of them went out so far by saying rudely that the yaoi and yuri shippings suck. They like to "prove" the fact that amour is the best. I know that our own shipping is the best but it has gone too far when you are forcing people to like your own ship. I think that is being selfish.

While Amourshippers may have a sense of conceit around them, they are far from actively disrespectful of other options. If we are going by that definition then apparently stating that you like a ship means you automatically disrespect other ships by default. The 6 slot is biased and misinforming.

I've seen offensive comments from amourshippers, I'm not trying to be biased and misinforming. - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Charizard Fanboys

Honestly, the most annoying of the entire fanbase are those guys who relentlessly defend newer games, and completely disregard any of the games from older generations. I have no problem with liking the newest game, but don't just instantly call the older games irrelevant.

Obviously, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina are way better. Who wouldn't like distortion of time and space and mass destruction and apocalypse? I would.

Personally, I love Charizard. He's not exactly my favorite Pokemon, but he's quite up there. Not only is he simply classic, he's a fire-breathing dragon (yes, dragon, not lizard). A simple yet badass concept. Also, I loved Ash's Charizard from the anime. But if someone is so crazy about Charizard that they spit on the other Pokemon without giving them a chance, then that's when it becomes a problem.

Charizard is my favorite Pokemon but I do not think that Charizard is the best Pokemon! Charizard is just my personal favorite Pokemon! The Charizard fanboys are the reason why Charizard gets so much hate nowadays! - HeavyDonkeyKong

4 Serena Fans

Besides the black & white and sun & moon companions she is the blandest companion

I hate Serena! She is nothing more than a Mary sue who has a stupid crush in ash, and her character is just pointless! - Crystalsnow

Amourshipping makes the most sense but unlike the others it ruins the character - boltslegend

She has many bad fans but her haters are even more brutal
Perfect example: this very site.
They give out many logical reasons to hate her, but if you give out just as equally much logical reasons to defend her, they just thumb down your comments without even acknowledging your very arguments whatsoever and then they practically dismiss you as asinine. I even made a list about why I hate her hatebase. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I will admit that one of my old lists on one of my deleted accounts may have sparked a war between her fans and her haters. Though I may just be paranoid. - Rue

5 Poke tubers

They're always in it for the money. I wish the community was like it was in gen 5/ early gen 6 and when patreon wasn't a thing.

They're ALWAYS comparing the games and starting generation wars. Some of them are ok, though... - RedLily

Oh don't get me started on Verlisify. - Rue

I love PurpleRodri... He's great.

6 PokeShippers

Pokeshippers are cancer to the fandom

I like Pokeshipping, but I also Like Advanceshipping. However, I am Primarily a Pearlshipper! Does that make me a bad person? No! It doesn't! Pokeshippers are so annoying and obnoxious and don't respect toehr people's opinions! They bash fans of shippings that involve Ash but don't involve Misty, especially if they are fans of shippings that involve Ash but don't involve Misty, but involve the Main Characters who are girls but not Misty! This is probably because Misty is a Main Character who is a girl! I like some Pokeshippers, but most Pokeshippers are obnoxious and rude! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The problem with PokeShippers (Ash x Misty fans) is that they tend to double up as genwunners. This is what honestly makes them so annoying.

Misty is a great partner for AAsh though, but so are his other female companions, especially Dawn and Serena.

I am an armor shipper and got attackt by so many pokeshippers just because I like the ship but honestly all shippers are toxic

7 Pedophiles


Why do they draw sex scenes of 10 year olds having sex this would go under armour shipping but to be honest this ties all the creepy propganda that freaks make - Toptenanimallovers

They make porn of underaged characters - Mranonymously

So true. People ship children with adults. lol

8 Unova Haters

Why does everyone hate Unova? - RiverClanRocks

All generations have their bad looking Pokemon but when Gen 5 does it, it's somehow the worst generation of all time. Which is a load of bull. - Rue

I like the gen 5 pokemon... besides simisear and frillish but

It is the best even never playing be lol

9 People who only played Pokemon Go

So my friend plays Pokemon Go more than I do because she for one actually enjoyed it and I don't (I'm lazy so what). What annoys me to no end us how she acts all proud and mighty because of this. I've been a Pokemon fan my entire life (literally my parents raised me on it) and it hurts when she acts like she's the bigger and better fan because she plays the game more. I have nothing against people enjoying the game as their first introduction to the series but I don't like it at all when this friend starts questioning that I'm a fan. Honestly she asked me to name six legendaries and because I didn't mention any from gen 1 she said I didn't know Pokemon. It's okay if you're new and enjoy the game, even if you're someone just following a trend but I draw a line when they think they actually know more than I do.

I have a friend who started liking pokemon through pokemon go, and now she watches the anime, but those people who pretend they know everything about pokemon when they only played that game its just aauuuggghhh

Oh. THOSE people. Yeah, they suck.

They don't even know what mega evolution is!

10 Gardevoir Fans

I don't like the porn art. I only like Gardevoir because of her battle prowess potential. When I'm done training them, they usually are "goddesses for battle," as a friend of mine once said. - Souleon

Gardevoir is a great pokemon! Unfortunately, some people take advantage of it's human resemblance, if you know what I mean. - Absolite

I use Gardevoir, in Sapphire and Alpha Sapphire. I started with Sapphire, but I didn't even know what gardevoir was, I just thought it always evolved into gallade, I accidentally got it, but I'm not a fanboy.

I don't have anything against guys between the ages of 18-25, I just find that what they do, especially on the internet, to be... uh... unpredictable

The Contenders

11 TV Show Original Series Fanboys

They put the Original Series of the Pokemon Anime on some huge, golden, platinum pedestal and say that it is perfect but they criticize all of the other series of the Pokemon Anime as well as all of the fans of all of the other series of the Pokemon Anime because "THEY DON'T HAVE MISTY! LOLZ! " - HeavyDonkeyKong

I don't CARE about the original show, I hate the pokemon anime so much

Ugh. These might be worse than Genwunners. - RiverClanRocks

The origional series was the worst of the entire show - boltslegend

12 Pikachu Fanboys

Why did Ash's Pikachu refuse to evolve in the first place? I mean seriously, Raichu would be famous for everything Pikachu is now if he chose to touch the bloody Thunderstone. But nope, they were afraid of changing their mascot because of fanboys like these. People who think that Pikachu is a fantastic battler just because of the anime, or because he has the Light Ball equipped BUG THE CRAP OUT OF ME! Not to mention that Cosplay Pikachu is pretty stupid. - DemonSpider253

I get it, this little Pokemon is adorable. I love him/her too! ENOUGH SHOVE HIM/HER DOWN OUR THROATS - HeavyDonkeyKong

Raichu for the win

Pikachu... Uggg...

13 Charizard Haters

I swear, if someone hears you say you love Charizard, they won't shut up about how "overrated" he is. Pisses me off. I should know how it feels, it's happened to me.

Lame reasons to hate Charizard they have.

These guys can be just as bad as Charizard fanboys. - Vancedapurpleguy

Charizard haters are stupid jerks that act as if Charizard is the only Pokémon with a quad weakness

14 Gen 5 Haters

Fans according to gen 5:


Fans according to gen 6:

Keys? Well, this is VERY CREATIVE!

Yes I love gen 5 my home region the haters on gen 5 go way to far - boltslegend

These people love to hate on the fifth generation of Pokemon. They act like genwunners claiming that Vanilluxe and Garbodor are unoriginal.

" I hate this ice cream Pokémon so the whole generation sucks! " Seriously... - RedLily

15 Sinnoh Haters

I swear Gen 4 get's a lot of undeserved hate just cause of the time it takes to do certain things. But let me asked you this. Which Gen brought us WiFi battles? Sinnoh. Which gen brought the physical/ special split? Sinnoh. - MrQuaz680

True! And Sinnoh also has lots of cute Pokemon like Piplup, Starly, and Shinx! - CutieLuxrayGirl

Sinnoh brought us amazing Pokemon Darkarai, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Arceus. Also, it brought us really good starters. - Delgia2k

I'm not sure why this gets hate. It's great. - 906389

I like Gen 4! A lot of people seem to hate it, but I like it!

16 Fake Fans Who Only Played Pokemon Go

The haters are worse. Stop complaining about Pokemon Go. In fact, I think it's a great edition to gain more Pokemon fans. - yungstirjoey666

Like when pokemon go came out the dumb noob amount sharply increased and ruined everything

Why do they exist? Why do they have to ruin everything for everybody?

These people only play one sub-par pokemon game and they think they know more than those who have played every generation and spin-off, go away with your BS

17 Pokemon Go Haters

Oh dear, they suck! Not because of their opinion, but because of their attitude. Say something like 'I like Pokemon Go ' and you're labelled as a bandwagoner, hipster, fake fan or even told to play Pokemon main series games. And guess what? They even tell you to kill yourself. Over liking a mobile game. Yes.

That's just one part of the fan base. On a YouTube video showing Pokemon-I choose You!, there was this person who said people should be ashamed of themselves just because you were introduced to Pokemon because of Pokemon go. And I really hate other people who act like you must know all 700 over Pokemon in existence before playing your first Pokemon game. Wow.

Linking back to the Pokemon go haters telling you to play a main series games, I came across someone who was 'Lets hope these fans don't play Pokemon Sun and Moon.'. You guys told us players to play Pokemon Main Games, yet when we are planning to, you guys complain we are bandwagoners. Oh, so because you like a ...more

I don't like pokemon go, but you can play it. I don't like it because I don't know how to battle on it... then again, I was too busy watching anime... so might be my fault for that. Probably is. But hey, the other pokemon games are good. I'll take your word for it that pokemon go is good. I just don't have a phone to try it on. - Souleon

@IHateDonaldTrump At least we have people like you.

Ok guys as that visitor,i don't think they suck anymore.Nor do I care about the haters anymore.

Pokemon Go is the first Pokemon game (I know it's not a main series game but it is attached to the franchise) I ever played, and I still love it. It's what introduced me to the world of Pokémon. Even though I never have played the main series games because I don't have a DS I am interested in the Pokémon world because of the various designs of the Pokémon and the many interesting concepts. - JustAnotherAccount

18 Pokemon Anime Fans

The Pokemon anime fans are worse than the game only fans because of one thing: SHIPPING. - Rue

Ok. So now I have a huge list of haters I guess... so beware of the pokemon anime fan haters... Sure, pokemon is a good anime, but there are also tons of other good anime. But I don't like digimon. It confused the hell out of me. But Naruto, Soul Eater, Death Note, and Norigami are good. - Souleon

Kinda depends I love the anime and could care less what your view is while others bash people about it - boltslegend

If anything the haters are much worse.
If you say you like the anime, they insult you and shove digimon tamers down your throat. I love the pokemon anime AND the digimon tamers anime equally! - HeavyDonkeyKong

I know that. However, I've seen many people who hate on the anime and praise digimon. I'm not saying they're all digimon fanatics. I'm just saying that a lot of the people that I have come across are. - HeavyDonkeyKong

19 Kalos Haters

My previous comment is full of spelling mistakes... I am really sorry. - RedLily

My first game was X and since then I have played Pearl, Platinum and Omega Ruby. I love all of those regions and don't see why people hate Kalos (Delphox for the win).

Maybe it was because my first game was y, but I like kalos tons more than any other games

I never heard anyone write hate mail to kalos.

20 Misty Haters

Are they all 5 yo? Their reasons to hate Misty are so dumb
"She is a tsundere! " No. She isn't.
"She is violent with Ash! " Not anymore, plus it was just for the comedy most of the time
"She has no development and she is useless! " She was an angry violent girl at the star but she became a caring and powerful trainer. This is called development. She isn't useless at all, she was Ash's mentor, she even saved his life once.
They're all definitely 5 yo. - RedLily

My only problem of Misty's aggressive behavior is the double standard if the genders were switched, but even that can be debunked when Brock hit Misty that one time.

You do make valid points though. Misty had great development. - yungstirjoey666

21 People who bash on new Pokémon games

These people give dumb reasons to hate newer Pokémon games yet I just acept them

These are the people that usally have the most stupidest reasons like really dippin dots and a wall UGH! and those annoying people that bitch and complain on not getting the games they want like gen 4 remakes like honestly grow the F up!

22 Eeeveetards

What pisses me off about them is not that they try to make eevee a celebrity as a guy before said but that they use it to make an edgy animations and ruin it. They add blood, gore and sad things just to make their animation edgy.

AND!? We can make our animations the way want it to be. If you don't like it, why do you watch it? - Swiftfrost

I dislike most of them and I think Eevee is the most overrated Pokemon.. If not, more overrated than Pikachu.

I like eevee. but I only think its cute and fluffy. nothing else. If they added a ghost type eeveelution called Souleon, with the pokemon from my profile picture, I'd be one of those fans. I love ghost types a lot. I'll admit... I defend them religiously. Now, can I have a fun argument with a hater? I love arguing. - Souleon

Using "retard" as an insult is rude. - yungstirjoey666

23 Ash-Greninja Fanboys


Ash Greninja ruined the OU metagame. Greninja didn't need Battle Bond... - RedLily

24 The "You're A Noob Because You Use Legends" Accusers

I agree I hate when people called other noobs just because that just what to use a pokemon that they like that just rude - Godzilla_Sonic-1975fan

I have one legendary on my team. One. People still call me a "hacker" even though mine was the version mascot that you get in the flipping game! - RiverClanRocks

I see people say this all the time, just grow up!

In AG, ANYTHING GOES, that's what its called! So, whats wrong with legendaries?!?!? In My Opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

25 Perverts

The female pokemons have this type of fans - Mranonymously

Specifically: gardevoir perverts. ITS TIME TO STOP, FANDOM. GARDEVOIR WILL NOT HAVE YOUR BABIES, IDIOTIC FANBOYS. - Darktail_of_FireClan

26 Hoenn Haters

I love Hoenn and it's my third favorite region, but the water. Oh the water! - RiverClanRocks

My favorite region, I love Team Magma and Groudon.

Why people are hating on this? - Delgia2k

27 Greninja Fans

Pure cancer
They like it only because of word nInJa in it

They are obnoxious, cruel and disrespectful people who makes excuses when they lose a fight against Delphox using Dazzling Gleam or Chesnaught for having type advantage in general. Newsflash for you jerks, Delphox using Dazzling Gleam is no different than you using moves that's strong against the opponent, like Ice Beam or Blizzard against Chesnaught.

Greninja fans are total hypocrites and doesn't understand what they have is an OPINION yet they treat it as a fack and bully people who likes Delphox, Chesnaught, etc. I used to like Greninja well enough, but its fans just ruined it.

Just because Greninja outspeeds Delphox and Chesnaught, it doesn't mean it's automatically the best. Plus Greninja is totally fan service because it gets Protean as its hidden ability and gets a battle bond ability. It also gets a black shiny form so people would like it. to be honest, I prefer Delphox and Chesnaught rather than Greninja who can't take a single hit without a focus sash.

It is true that greninja fans are pretty toxic. I'm a greninja fan but I do not hate Delphox. In fact, I think it is pretty cool. I respect all pokemon maybe except ratatta (joking). I really like Delphox typing a lot to be honest.

28 XYZ fanboys

They hate the old seasons & the current one and think that XYZ is superior than the seasons they give us. That is a narrow-minded opinion and totally simplistic to opinionate it. - yamionthetrap

29 Bulbasaur Haters

Bulbasaur is the most original starter, and Venusaur is really good. They don't know what they are missing. - RedLily

They never give Bulbasaur a chance, which is sad since he'said the easy mode every modern kid wants.

Yeah. That’s mostly charizard fanboys.

Despite the facts that Bulbasaur is a great starter, picked as the best by the creators, 2nd best by science after Squirtle. This guy gets hate from Charmander and Squirtle fans for 20 YEARS.

20 Years and the hate, jokes, memes never stopped. And they usually call those who like Bulbasaur as gay or dumbasses.

Childish, immature, toxic people.

30 Advanceshipping

I don't get it. Anime isn't going anywhere with AshXany-of-the previous-girls stuffs. So what are they still fighting for? Even Misty is sidelined with Brock. Advanceshipping fandom is small in fraction but there are some toxic ones exist within it and I won't lie about that.

Annoying as hell.
Even both May and Ash will run in the opposite direction seeing them.
They are as obnoxious and cruel as rabid pokeshippers and amourshippers in their extreme worst.

Hang on, But I love Advanceshipping.

I am done with this shipping because of its fanbase.

31 Mewtwo Fanboys

These guys aren't as bad as Charizard fanboys because they can actually back up their claims with evidence. - FrozenHatingPokefan

But mewtwo is strong

32 Oshawott Haters

I like Oshawott. Dewott is more awesome though. Dewott for the win! - Souleon

People hate Oshawott?! I hate my generation.

You hate Oshawott, I hate you.

Get this to the top! - KalloFox34

33 Anthro Pokemon Fans

I still have no idea what that is. - Souleon

Furries are ruining pokemon with their...
I can't even say it

34 Misty Fans

What the hell man? Misty is awesome. And the only one of the female characters I've seen that actually has a back bone that she can actually back up. - Souleon

35 Iris Haters

My problem with Iris haters isn't their opinion of her. It's that they are hypocrites. They hate Iris, yet enjoy female character who are just as condescending, childish, and bratty as Iris is..I even saw a few of them saying that they wish she was seriously hurt and killed. Wishing harm on a 10 year old girl sounds creepy and I hope they never have kids. - ZettaGirl23

Iris may not be pretty or sometimes annoying but her skills are awesome!
And whatever those hate are crazy

Seriously, why do people hate on Iris so much

36 Jynx Haters

Why does anyone hates Jynx?

Just becuase she is ugly that doesen't mean you should hate her for that - Mranonymously

37 Red fanboys

Red is pretty cool and all, but not any better than the other game protagonists aside from his official status. In fact, all the game protagonists are technically you. - yungstirjoey666

But Red actually became a champion, whereas Ash never became champion despite his attempts. And Red is more powerful. Though, I just like people who have a better reputation. Red uses logic, a key element in battle. Ash lacks that and basically BS's his way through, though Ash is more entertaining. - Souleon

These guys are just CANCER! All they do every day is bash a 10 and I repeat TEN year old kid calling him the "worst trainer ever". I prefer Ash over Red ANYDAY.

IKR?! Red Fanboys are the worst

38 Unovabortions

Sounds like someone wanted Charizard - UnofficialBlaine

39 Competitive Haters

I thinks those can easily get worse than genwunners at times but I'm not talking about the lazy ones I'm taking about the bias ones because one said "I Only respect players who don't player competitive" whicj is just rude. Some say the only thing that matters to a player are moves and stats which are not true to most players and I love the pokemon I use, some say you can't use your favorites but you CAN and some will say they don't care about the story but we do so stop assuming - Masterofal

I'm too lazy to act on it :P - Souleon

Pokémon Showdown rocks, deal with it. - RedLily

40 May Fanboys

Disgusting. May (Anime) itself is a lame butt character, but her drooling fanboys make it worse for me.

41 Hoenn Babies
42 People who think you like a Pokémon based on its OP stats

Yes. Because NOTHING else matters! The stats may help, but they're just numbers that say how strong it is!

But that is what matters about Pokémon, so you only mean the obnoxious ones, right? - FrozenHatingPokefan

"Oh, hey. So, Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle? "- Random person
" Charmander" - Pokemon fan
"Same plus, I know why you chose it." RANDOM PERSON
"Why? " - Pokemon fan
*squishes water bottle in hand into a wrinkly mess* - Pokemon fan

These people only judge Pokemon by their OP and stats.

43 Kanto Haters

I like Kanto not just out of nostalgia but also the iconic Pokemon and gen 1 haters really annoy me they complain about how it had terrible mechanics, simple Pokemon designs, and was just plain boring. Give gen 1 some slack it was the very first game.

I don't hate Kanto, I just never played it, but it is not the best region

Newgenners are children

Newgenners suck!

44 Pearlshippers

Yeah they are real awful and suck

45 "Overrated" Police

There's no such thing as factually overrated or underrated Pokemon. It's more of a subjective term. Whether you think it deserves the praise or not is merely your opinion. - yungstirjoey666

Oooh, we have a Genwunner here, don’t we? I like the original generation, but not so much that I hate all the new gens. To me, Alola was nice, don’t offend newer pokemon fans like me. My first season was Unova, because I was 6 that time. You offend 6 year olds. I am 10 now. Kids are not fanbrats, 90’s bougie. Newgenners are children, literally! And you like telling them that the new generation in inferior.

Frequently used by the Newgenner fanbrats who only worship Pokémon Sun/Moon/USUM. These idiots are so blinded by their love of new/modern day things that they take great delight in hating something just because it's nostalgic. They worship Alola and spit on the older regions. If it isn't Professor Kukui,Team Skull,Alola, Bruxish, Z-moves,malasadas,trial captains, island trials, the tapus, Solgaleo or island kahunas, these idiots will fly into a blind rage and throw HUGE tantrums, Sadly,their modern day blinders are permanently fused to their skulls,and they'll only used the words "overrated" when it comes to things like Charizard,Kalos,gym battles,etc.

46 Socially Awkward Ones

I'm socially awkward. Hell, I've been tested and been told that I 'suffer' from antisocial personality disorder. My whole family is antisocial. Except for my mum. Though she is close to being antisocial. - Souleon

This is rather rude. What does being socially awkward have to do with liking Pokemon?

The stupidity of humans... -.- - Lunala

47 Forfeiters

I hate forfeiters. They are so damned annoying. When I finish getting my team ready, I'm all hyped, and I wait ages just for a battle. Somebody accepts a battle request. The battle begins, and I just set up my sweep, and they forfeit. Like what?! - Souleon

They aren't doing anything bad. Sometimes, your opponent annoys you and you just want to stop the battle. - RedLily

Well I'm happy that I won but... I was ahving fun here! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Cowards. - FrozenHatingPokefan

48 The people who only play Pokemon because others play it

Excuse me but that's how I found out what Pokemon was in the 90s.
Someone was playing it in primary school on toyday, I decided to watch him playing it.

God I hate this sort of thing! Stop following the trends and make them!
