Top 10 Worst Pokemon of All Time

Rate this Entry
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

    @Luminosity Cryogonal is a very decent pokémon actually. Mainly thanks to rapid spin though.

    Eh, I do agree with Flareon. The Eeveelution's potential fighting power is badly crushed when it comes to the fact that its highest stat is attack while the Pokemon basically lacks physical STAB moves.

    I didn't forget a damn thing. Having more adults play the game does not mean a larger percentage of players care about the competitive scene. What we see on the internet is a very small part of the total community of pokemon players.

    Yes, but a lot of the Pokemon on the list would be able to wipe it out because of its crappy defense.

    So much fail in this blog...where do I begin? You'd be surprised at what good most of those Pokemon on that list can do. These Pokemon you see as "mediocre" can actually be just as good or better than most Pokemon. It all depends on how you train them. I've used a majority of those Pokemon on that list, and I can honestly say that they are as good as or even better than a majority of Pokemon out there. Most people don't care about Competitive battling, and never will. Let us play the game how we want, and we'll decide what's a good Pokemon and what is not.

    and your reason for hating Pikachu and Charizard are incredibly ludicrous. Charizard can kick ass and take names. While Pikachu doesn't have the best defense, power it up with a Light Ball and watch it tear things up. I actually prefer Emboar over Blaziken/Infernape, and Serperior is pretty good as well. You should try raising these Pokemon you call "bad" for a change, and see that they're actually good.

    /2 cents has been put in.

    If Serperior is on this list because of its bad movepool in relation with its DW ability, then where is Spinda and Shuckle on the list? Both get Contrary, Spinda only has Superpower, and Shuckle has nothing, to abuse it with.

    Me thinks this list wasn't thought through very well.

    I do agree wholeheartedly that the annoying rodent called Pikachu has been overhyped to hell and back.

    I disagree on so many levels... Their are far worse Pokemon then Charizard and Serperior. (where the fuck is Spinda? Butterfree? hell ANY of the Bug/Flying Pokemon?) Charizard might not be the best Pokemon Competicly but it is NOWHERE near the worse. You can still use Charizard in OU without much issue.

    Your blog kinda fails and shows massive bias

    Challenge accepted. I'll find a match where one of the pokemon on your list is on a team that defeats a sandstorm or rain dance team tonight when I get home from work.

    Hey, don't diss butterfree... He's pretty sick nasty.

    @MAGNEDETH that list might need a few minor updates for gen V. Not even to mention it doesn't have any gen V pokémon on it, it still lists Sableye as an inferior Spiritomb for instance, and Ditto as useless.

    The list is also suppose to be based off of the opinions of fellow well-respected Bulbagardeners, who know more about competitive battle than me, though I'm not sure if that's considered bias. Plus it's the only way for them to gain some respect to me.

    Megumi in the poke-flesh?

    Everybody go home

    As far as I know, no one agrees with this. List me 10 people who do. Because everyone (non-competitive and competitive) know there are way worse Pokemon out there than the ones you listed.

    I only know Grass Type Trainer, Saiga, and CommandurrClowncrete, all three being competitive players, to agree with this list, especially on Charizard for Grass Type Trainer, who despises him, and Serperior for all three, who knows Contrary Serperior will be severely walled.
