    Default 1Up's Top 5 Lamest Pokemon

    http://www.1up.com/do/feature?cId=3169539

    Have to say I disagree with Unown and Beautifly, but Probopass and Luvdisc I can agree completely on.

    They do make a good point regarding Mr. Mime. He is rather... creepy.


    So, discuss.

    I disagree with the entire list, except for maybe Luvdisc. But I give props since this article was actually written by (gasp!) someone that has actually played the games, and knows Pokémon.

    Why do you think one of the nicknames for Probopass is Jewpass?

    Yeah, I always found Probopass... offputting... as well. But I guess it's no worse than Lombre with Mexicans. I mean, Probopass doesn't reflect any negative stereotypes of Jews or anything, more just the rabbi type imagery.

    And yeah. Luvdisc looks like they spent of all two minutes drawing it. It's also useless for anything but heart scales for the move tutor in RSE.

    Probopass is the shit. Seriously, it's one of my favorites, and I don't know why everyone hates him so. :'(

    Also, I just love Mr. Mime's incredible creepiness. Other than that, great list though. It has some of my least favorites.

    "You still won't find anybody using Probopass, though."

    Can I slap these guys across the face?


    The Sinnoh Battle Frontier is among them, and an old foe is back for revenge. With Rain's new companions, as well as some old friends by his side, can he win this challenge and stop Shinsei Muto before it's too late?

    "Somewhere around Pokémon No. 270, the designers suddenly realized that they were running out of ideas."

    The hat makes me think of Devo.


    Luvdisc has potential, given that it was one of Wallace's signatures, but they seem to have forgotten all about that.

    Mmm, yeah, I'm going to go with the majority here and say Luvdisc isn't all that great... that thing needs some kind of majestic-looking, powerful battle-wise evolution already.

    Unown are pretty useless from a gameplay perspective, but they do make for good anime episodes and movies. XD I do wish the TCG would make their artwork more distinct from one another, though. And that thing they did with EX Unseen Forces where they came out with 28 Rare-Holographic cards all in one set was lame from a collectors' standpoint. It would have been much better if they all had different rarities like they usually do; that set had way too many rares for its own good. :/

    Probopass kinda scare me, yeah, so it's not one of my favorites. Totally inaccurate to say no one uses it, though.

    The only Mr. Mime that isn't creepy is Delia's, and that'd because it's pretty funny. Not the lamest of all 493, though.

    Beautifly: Eh, not one of my favorites either.

    List is pretty good, I disagree with Mr. Mime(always thought he was funny. Thier description of beautifly(he should of been #1 :P) is perfect.

    After 40 years wandering around the desert and that little disagreement with the nazi's, I doubt the jews are to worried about pokemon.(lol I'm sorry I just couldn't resist. No offense meant to any jewish pokemon fans.)

    He's mentioned, they say he along with all of the others meant only for the begining of the game are forgiven.

    The articles are funny, but I disagree with a few.

    Personally, I don't really see the creepiness in Mr. Mime's physical appearence. What I do find creepy is that the Pokédex claims that if you dare interrupt him as he's miming, he's going to start slapping you for I don't know how long. The idea of a short, pale clown-thing slapping me silly doesn't inspire me with comfort...

    I like Beautifly, though. I like his appearance and I like using him in battle, but I can't help but see him as imitation Butterfree.

    If I were to make a list like that, I would definately add Spinda. I just find him so boring. He doesn't seem to have anything going for him in particualr, except for his 4 billion spot combination, which isn't much.

    I would also add Sunflora, mainly because I find her to be really ugly.

    And of course, I would add Biddof, lol. The "vendor trash" Pokémon.

    I'm glad Luvdisk made it... it stinks.

    And Bidoof isn't in it, because everyone likes my Bidoof shirt

    Nose/Probopass are based on the Moai. It is in no way intended as a Jewish stereotype.
