Top 10 Worst Pokemon of All Time

Hear I list the worst of the worst based on their distribution from the fanbase, including Bulbagarden, and their competitive use. It'll also be in no particular order. Another note, Pokemon from LC will not be included, so no Magikarps or Zubats here:

1. Farfetch'd
Reason: Joke character status; has yet to obtain an evolution

2. Unown
Reason: Only knows one move followed by bad stats

3. Luvdisc
Reason: Generic fish Pokemon; lost its purpose now that heart scales are available elsewhere

4. Garbodor
Reason: Poor stat distribution and creepy design

5. Vanilluxe
Reason: Suffers from one of the worst movepools of its own type

6. Charizard
Reason: Fail to live up its iconic status in competitive battles, making him a hatable starter; GF refuses to give him some decent improvements outside Solar Power

7. Pikachu
Reason: Fail to live up its mascot title with both its evolution and the light ball; GF refuses to give him some decent improvements

8. Flareon
Reason: Can't even abuse its base attack

9. Serperior
Reason: DW ability wasted by shallow movepool

10. Emboar
Reason: Fail to be as good as its Fire/Fighting brethrens due to its questionable stat distribution

    Disagreed on so many levels.

    I like Emboar. ;_;

    Reason: DW ability wasted by shallow movepool
    Actually, would it really need more moves beyond Leaf Storm and maybe Leech Seed for health support?

    I find your lack of Sunkern disturbing. :x

    [QUOTE=Devized;bt220055]You, sir, are implying Magikarp is considerably better than [I]Charizard.[/I]

    At least Magikarp evolves into a Gyarados, which is OU.

    See my "Should Grass Types Get Earthquake/Earth Power" thread.

    How can it even be a worst pokemon list without Zubat and Magikarp?

    Charizard? Clearly you be trollin'.

    I think this may be "Top 10 bad features" or something. Just because Charizard has a bad feature, it most certainly isn't one of the top 10 worst Pokemon.

    Even if resisted, not much is going to survive a x8 boosted Leaf Storm.

    This is the smartest and most well thought out thing I have ever read in my entire life.

    That's because Meganium has what Serperior lacks: Earthquake.

    It's the sad truth, not to mention being a better wall than Serperior.

    I think you are once again forgetting how little the average player cares about competitive battling.

    well my Megumi the Serperior says otherwise

    Just because Serperior has an DW ability that doesn't help much (but actually it does) doesn't mean it's a bad Pokemon.

    I think Megumi is a Serperior and is doing just fine with the moves it has. Could be wrong, but that's how I interpreted Yoshi-san's comment. EDIT: Ninja'd by Yoshi-san

    As for the list, no caterpie? no sunkern? no magikarp or feebas?

    sunkern > Charizard?
    caterpie > Serperior?

    I could go on but I won't XD

    Meganium = A walking giraffe that stuck it's head through a giant plant
    Serperior = A green snake... thing

    Yeaaaah... someone decide which sounds more intimidating.
    I find a few issues though. Not all Pokemon need to be a competitive god to be awsome. Charizard has his iconic status due to something else than being good. That's like saying Gyarados is a bad Pokemon because it isn't iconic. (The same goes for Pikachu)

    Then, joke Pokemon. They can't be bad for doing what they were made for... being jokes, ne?

    You are also forgetting that GF is expanding the series to adults, who are serious players.

    [QUOTE]As for the list, no caterpie? no sunkern? no male combee with its shitty stats and inability to evolve into anything? no magikarp or feebas?

    sunkern > Charizard?
    caterpie > Serperior?

    Read the beginning sentences from my blog, I've mentioned that LC Pokemon will not be used in this list because I'm trying to be original here.

    You did not just put a Serperior on that list!

    Snivy disapproves. This blog is fail.

    My bad there.

    However, there are plenty of Pokemon in NU that are a lot lot lot worse than some of the ones you've listed here. Ariados? Beedrill? Cryogonal?
