    Exactly what the title says. Meganium is one of the best Grass type Pokemon and an awesome Starter with a simple yet elegant design. She also stands out from the rest by being designed in a more gentle light than the other, let's face it, scary looking Starters. Also, she's the prettiest final evo Starter.

    Yet she's by and large the most unpopular Starter of the current twelve and by the looks of it, might extend to Gen V as well.

    Why? Why the hell is such an awesome Pokemon so disliked by so many of the fans?

    My theory is that it's got a lot to do with her subpar movepool. As much as I love Meganium, her moveset does kinda suck. Do you think that if she had better moves, she'd be more appreciated?

    Something like Stone Edge, Spore, Earth Power and Nasty Plot would do wonders for her in my opinion.

    Well, you know how much I like Meganium? My SerebiiForums account was named after it.

    In all seriousness, it is such a shame it's so unloved. It's not the best starter (competitively) by a long shot, but I don't understand why so much hate gets directed towards it specifically.

    This. I needed this. Why is Megan so unloved? Who the hell cares if Charizard is a friggin' dragon! If you love your Meganium a lot, teach it Return. It helps A LOT, believe me. Why is such a strong and cute Pokémon unloved?! I despise Charizard for its overratings, and Meganium is without a doubt the most unloved starter. But I love it.

    Mine's more of a defensive pivot and team supporter. It comes in, sets up Reflect, laughs in the face of physical attacks, heals the team of status with Aromatherapy and punishes Ground, Rock and Water types with Energy Ball. It keeps itself alive with Synthesis so it can keep coming back whenever it needs to.
