    Default Most underrated Pokemon?

    Ever loved a certain Pokemon so much? Have you also noticed that whatever Pokemon that is it isn't really loved as much as you love it? Here's the place to discuss that.

    To get to the point I'd have to say Aggron is one of the most underrated. Sure, it's got an awesome design and is shown to be very powerful in the anime, so what's the underrated part of it? The fact that so many people overlook it for others because of it's double weaknesses to both Fighting AND Ground. Having double weaknesses to both of the two powerful offensive types in the game isn't something pretty.

    Honestly though, the Steel/Rock typing causes more help for me than harm. First you must stare at that 180 Base Defense and double resistance to Normal and Flying, as well as a solid immunity to Poison. It's high Defense also lets it wall Dragon types that don't pack any Ground type moves to do anything about it. In fact, unless it's being hit with Super Effective damage or by a Special move, it doesn't take too much damage at all. It even gets a Special Defense boost in sandstorm to patch up that low Special Defense of his. Sure it isn't the fastest thing around, so that may also be a reason why it's so overlooked and underrated as it is, but you GOT to love that 110 Base Attack with access to Head Smash, which it can deal massive damage with no penalty thanks to Rock Head as one of it's abilities.

    Overall Aggron to a lesser extent fits as an underrated Pokemon, but probably not as much as some other Pokemon in the game. He is essentially both overrated and underrated thanks to his abilities, moves, and typing. Perfect qualities of a late game powerhouse indeed.

    Poor little Trubbish and Garbodor are so unloved. I just don't understand. :< People say they're ugly, but goddammit, they're adorable! u_u

    There's also Doduo and Dodrio who are SO FREAKIN' AWESOME... but nobody else seems to think so. A three headed ostrich/roadrunner/kiwi bird/emu (crap, I have no idea what it's really supposed to be) is coolaid! People need to appreciate it more. >.>

    And last but not least... Meditite and Medicham. I ****in' love this line. Seriously. Their designs are flawless (well... in my opinion T_T), and they're just adorable (which for some strange reason, I've seen countless people refer to Medicham as "ugly" T^T).

    Of course there's a huge stack of Pokemon that are underrated (that I love), but that would just turn my post into a rant. :B

    Oh, and I agree with the Aggron thing. I adored that line in Sapphire, and used it in so many teams. The Aron line is awesome, end of. 3:<

    I think that Trubbish and Garbodor are cute. Trubbish because that one that appeared in anime... Garbodor because it has Mickey's ears.

    Medicham doesn't receive all the love it deserves also... After watching the battle between Ash and Greta, I fell in love with it. So cute and smooth.

    Flygon is outclassed by other hyped dragons, people must show some more love to it.

    Geodude is another poor guy, but it's really shit, so I don't care.

    Oh, Gulpin and Swalot for sure. I mean, they're so frickin' adorable (how can you get any cuter than Swalot's little spaghetti-shaped whiskers? How?), and they have a really fun movepool too. And yet, you can't buy a plushie, anywhere.

    I didn't see one for UNDERrated Pokemon. I saw one for OVERrated Pokemon though.

    There was a thread for this, but it died a number of months ago.

    Lumineon's quite underrated: it can pull its weight in UU, if you play it right.

    Agreed with that. I love Swalot! I usually have at least one around somewhere.

    Another Pokemon that's underrated (imho) is Ampharos. I mean, yes, it's attack isn't the best, but the fact that it can learn a wide varity of moves really makes it a good part of any team.

    You have a good taste in Pokemon. I love Swalot too.

    Gastrodon, man. D8 Sure, she's just a poor-man's Swampert, but people often underestimate her high HP and Special Defense. She managed to defeat my uber Team's Dialga, and weaken Darkrai a little before she went down.

    Also, she has Recover, so she can always set up and reconver, or toxic protect recover, and so on. A good stall, or annoyer, or something.

    Plus, they're freakin adorable! ;A; Especially the east-sea Gastrodon, with her cute pigtail-like ears...thing.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Golem and Rhyperior, most definitelly. Despite their dual 4x weaknesses and low Speed, their Attack and Defense are incredible, and they both served me well in beating the Pokemon Leauge.

    In order:
    Mr. Mime - I am probably of two people on the planet who really like this guy (the other being Chuggaaconroy). I've slowly come to love his dumb name and creepy design. Besides, he's got pretty good Special stats, and can function as a solid Baton Passer.
    Jynx - Same as Mr. Mime, only NOBODY likes it. Does nobody else appreciate how creepy these guys are?
    Breloom - You'd think having great typing, a fantastic ability, a great movepool, and an OU ranking would earn something a considerable amount of respect, right? Apparently not. Breloom still doesn't get half the attention it deserves. I loved this guy since day one.
    Electivire - WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE THIS GUY??? I was actually quite pleased with it; it was a solid evolution to a Pokémon I liked, with a good design.
    Arceus - Yes, I know, it IS a god and all, but I feel like the only one who likes this guy's design. There's just something... majestic about it. Strikes a nice balance between basic and elaborate.
    EDIT: Thanks to Ryuu for reminding me Breloom isn't the only Grass/Fighting type anymore.

    Well, for one, Breloom isn't a unique typing anymore...

    Evil Figment (7:59:44 PM): Ryuu, however shakily you started, I've got to hand it to you that you earned my respect the hard way.

    FFF- I LOVE Swalot and Gulpin. D:
    They're just TOO cute with their -3- '3' expressions. x3
    I also enjoyed using one in a past Sapphire team, so... yeah.
