Currently Sunkern in the worst pokemon in the pokemon world; providing we go be statistics alone.
It has base stats of 180 (30 for each), 5 weaknesses (Flying, Poison, Bug, Fire, Ice) as well as a small and weak movepool.

But in your opinion which pokemon is the worst in the world?

IT'S GOT MORE DEFENSE THAN DEOXYS-A.

'Nuff said.

Feebas and Magikarp. They have horrible movesets, plus they're extremely ugly.

Sunkern, Feebas, and Magikarp (and Metapod, Kakuna, Cascoon, and Silcoon because I know they'll be mentioned here) can at least evolve into useful pokemon. Perhaps Sunflora and the bugs aren't quite as powerful as Gyarados or Milotic, but they actually have a half-decent movepool.

The only truly useless pokemon is one that can't evolve to be stronger and has an extremely shallow movepool that makes even using one a very situational affair.

By that I of course mean:

I'll just toss this in Pokemon General. Even though we're taking stats and moves into consideration, it's still more about the Pokemon rather than the games themselves.

Agreed.

Unown is just...crap. I never bother with them because it just isn't worth collecting them all. I don't remember what you gain from doing that in Gold/Silver/Crystal but i'm sure it isn't worth it.

I agree with Unknown being terrible. I have fun catching all of the different letters but they are pretty much useless in battle. At least pokemon like Feebas and Magikarp evolve into good pokemon.

Unown? Terrible? http://www.surrealkid.com/smilies/img/headshake.gif
That one playthrough of GSC in which I used Unown was probably my most fun playthrough ever...

No, what really sucks usefulness-wise is the Paras line in my opinion, never got much out of them. Weaknesses and 4x weaknesses aplenty, access to Spore but too poor speed to make use of it. At least they resist Ground 4x...

It really all depends on the way you look at it. Sunkern has the worst stats and most weaknesses, but Unkown is just... Bad. Also, you can say a line of Pokemon are useless just because you yourself have never used them.

Unown are cool but purposeless in battle. So I agree. Feebas and Magikarp are worthless unless they evolve into Milotic and Gyrados. Which are awesome and great in battle.

metapod/kakuna if you don't consider its pre/post-evolutions. magikarp/feebas is pretty useless too unless they evolve.

in terms of moveset, delibird is pretty useless too (not the worst of the worst, but still pretty bad compared to at least 95% of the pokemon out there in terms of utility).

Magikarp is the weakest thing in the universe. Even a bacteria would destroy it.

Thank you! :D



FireRed Pokédex: "It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world."

I guess that answers it, but since it evolves, it's not truly an infinite weakling. It's bound to evolve sooner or later. Also:

Red and Blue Pokédex: "In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today."

At least it used to be stronger. Unown has been crappy since ancient times.
That's not true it has swift swim and is fairly fast ;)
But Magikarp itself is worthless in R/B/Y due to no Exp. Share.
I don't know what everyone has against Magikarp. Magikarp was made to troll the first generation of pokemon players. I mean how many people found out the Magikarp evolved into Gyarados by James kicking his Magikarp.

Unown is completly worthless in battle and is only useful in collection purpose. The most worthless pokemon in my opinion is Dunspance, it's was rare, it has crappy typing, crappy movepool and low base stats.

Unown does nothing apart from hidden power...plus it doesn't evolve...

At least Magikarp can learn flail.

The Paras line has been one of the most useful specie that I've played with.
All depends on personal experience I suppose, I never found them really useful...
Admittedly, Unown is probably the worst, but then again they're just so much fun to use, that entirely makes up for the lackluster stats, movepool and such. In my opinion, of course.

Magikarp and Feebas are arguably the worse Pokemon in existence. Outside of them, it's Weedle, Caterpie, Wurmple and Burmy, IMO.

Ignoring evoultions, Caterpie, Weedle, Kakuna, Metapod, Sunkern, and Magikarp. They are epic fail until they evolve.

Unown is epic fail that doesn't evolve at all and therefore remains epic fail for the duration of its existence. I used to laugh when CPU trainers in Stadium 2 tried to use Unown against me :)

Anyone who has mentioned Unown will have their post officially *seconded* by me. Useless and horrible and bleh!

What's with the Magikarp hate :(

Magikarp is awesome! Okay it might be useless in battle unless evolved, but it's awesome factor saves it from being the worst Pokemon.

I feel like Unown is pretty pointless (I'm usually biased FOR the older Pokemon, but I really don't see how Unown could be useful.) Hidden Power... really that's the ONLY move paired with below average stats? No Evolution, bleh...

That's not true it has swift swim and is fairly fast ;)
But Magikarp itself is worthless in R/B/Y due to no Exp. Share.

*Cough* Don't underestimate a Dunsparce w/ Serene Grace and Ancient Power. *Cough*

Unown.

This pretty much sums up why.

Tied between Magikarp and Unown.

At least Magikarp evolves into something awesome, Unown just stays the same and learns one attack :/

I hate peoples' dismissal of Sunkern...it's a pretty cool pokémon, and I prefer it to its' evolution, which doesn't look as good.

I don't regard any single pokémon as "worst". At least Unown are kinda entertaining to capture (although not that much in DPPt, except for trying to get that unknown item). Although I guess it's probably Feebas...they're a ***** to find, let alone capture, just as useless in battle as a Magikarp, and tricky to evolve too, except for in Platinum and BW.

Magikarp are useless? Roflmao, you might want to Youtube a Magikarp sweep.

Worthless Pokemon = Sunkern (Though in HG/SS they were the best in Pokeathlon!)

April 17th, 2011, 05:39 PM
Magikarp + Flail = WTF! :D

Worthless? I'm going to have to go with Wrumple.

Unown.

Really, there's no one else who sucks as bad.:\

Don't be hating on Magikarp...
But I do agree that Unown is pretty useless...
At least Magikarp evolves, Unown doesn't.

Rattata(or however you spell it >_<) and the Nidorans and them...I just dont like them...They are annoying to me >_>. I mean, I never EVER used them in Pokemon games. Even in Yellow, where your forced to use some kind of pokemon for Brock other than Pikachu, I simply raised him to level 30 owning those little guys (mind you, took ages *cries*) and just beat brock using tackle or whatnot. They simply dont suit my tastes. Now, if your talking move wise...And why are people dissing magikarp? Magis are PIMP. Enough said..

Caterpie is pretty useless, but so cute <3 Even though I hate bug Pokemon.

Blue
April 18th, 2011, 02:57 PM
I was going to say Magikarp but then no, because I like Magikarp and they evolve in Gyarados which can't really be argued with.. I'd hay to sayyyy Unown. It only learns Hidden Power and doesn't evolve..

syotipoke
April 19th, 2011, 10:39 PM
Yeah, Magikarp. At least until Magikarp Power takes effect, and it evolves into Gyrados.

If I were James, Victreebel would be the worst Pokemon in the world. At the start of a battle, it always wants to bite me. Grrrrrrr

Zubat for most annoying, I guess it could be the worst in that respect. But I think Magikarp is the worst

Hyperlust
April 21st, 2011, 03:23 PM
It seems like the useless ones are my favourite BECAUSE they're useless.

Magikarp, Psyduck, Snorlax 80% of the time....

Zubat for most annoying, I guess it could be the worst in that respect.

Dear lord YES. They're like that annoying ex that won't leave you alone...when you're walking through a cave....

Woobat
April 21st, 2011, 03:31 PM
I'd agree that it's Unown, because it doesn't evolve and only learns one move. Its base stats are pretty pitiful, too.

Funny thing, when I still wasn't playing Pokemon Magikarp was one of my favourites. ^^
Every Pokemon has its own worth and fans. I don't think I would be able to choose the worst one.
EDIT: OK, I forgot Unown. O_O

also what is it?

Misheard Whisper

Oh yeah, Unown. Gah. Not only are they useless in battle, but they look stupid and they're essentially the most pointless of pointless sidequests.

Aura Rift
April 23rd, 2011, 02:51 AM
Uknown is by far the most useless Pokemon

Rionix
April 23rd, 2011, 03:22 AM
I don't like Unowns.. And yeah, I don't like them cause they're pretty much useless, they're just there for collection purposes but I don't even want to collect them.

Magikarp. Or Unown. Depends on what level it is.

SuperSaiyanII
May 10th, 2011, 09:59 AM
Well, I hate Patrat and Watchog with a passion but the most useless Pokemon by far is Unown. At least Magikarp evolves on level 20 and even if it doesn't, it still learns one more damaging move than Unown does.

May 10th, 2011, 04:06 PM
Feebas and Magikarp get my vote. They don't learn any good moves and they're just literally useless :x

Dunsparce & Qwilifish are easily forgettable & completely useless for and to me.
