Previous thread.

My opinion.

On another note. (MUST READ SPOILER BEFORE POSTING)
Spoiler:
PLEASE don't complain over what other people think of. For example, if somebody says Mewtwo is the most overrated pokemon, don't be all like: "WTFMAN??? MEWTWO IS THE BEST POKE OUT THERE!!! U CRAZY??!!!?!?!?!!???" - I don't want any sort of flame wars. This thread is merely for discussion & sharing opinion.

I think the most loved Pokemon are overrated some of the best designed Pokemon seem overrated in my opinion;

Gyrados, Its original move pool is weak, but if you teach it with TM's it could be powerful I guess.
Lucario, its a pretty cool design, but i don't see the point personally.
Shinx and it's evolutions; Again a week move pool.. but again cool design.
I personally love TYRANITAR, Salamance and even Flygon, but they all have rather bad original move pool's, and have a lot of weaknesses. But they have the coolest designs.

I would really love an original design and a powerful Pokemon that is not a legendary pokemon..?
These are just my opinions..

Do I even need to say Pikachu?
Well I guess since Arceus, Dialgia and Palkia is explained as a gods then they can never stand up to that speculation as pokemon.
I have had some absolutely depressing experiences with Gyrados.
I'm going to say Beedrill and Butterfree because I'm a noob, they always seemed like an awesome way to start a game but always was depressing when you had to ditch them because they were worthless
I'm just here to play some Pokemon...

I guess Charizard is a bit overrated. Even though it isn't used often competitively, it's the appearance that makes people like it.

Pikachu and Charizard.
The Eeveelutions deserve a special mention, especially Umbreon, even more especially shiny Umbreon.
Most dog and cat Pokemon are overrated.

Pikachu is the series mascot, and really, I don't understand why it's the best known and best loved of all 629 of them. What's more, it evolves into Raichu and as a result is unsuited for competitive battling.

Arceus. Lugia. Pikachu. In fact, basically every Pokemon from the first and second generations. Underrated? Everything from the underappreciated 3rd generation. And as much as I like Reuniclus and Serperior (and I do), they are quite overrated.

My Personal Choices include: Infernape, Luxray, Dialga, Darkrai. They have amazing designs. Luxray just looks cool. I might throw in Garchomp too. These are my Personal ratings, So, no one should really consider this a fact, these r just my fav pkmns..
The thread isn't asking about your favorites, it's asking which pokemon you think are the most overrated.

In my opinion, Salamence. It's just so generic looking.

Lucario, Zoroark, Lugia, adn another that pokemon that featured in the movie. Arceus, although a bit overrated, can quite lived up to his reputation. I also concur that Mewtwo is overrated but I believe that he is the strongest non-godly pokemon.

Overrated? Hm, I'd say either Pikachu for being the Pokemon mascot, Charizard because it seems like everyone loves it, or Salamence for competitive battlers. Salamence is quite annoying.

Pikachu for obvious reasons. Charizard and um, I can't think of any others.
There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

Whaaat? Tyranitar has an extremely diverse movepool; as does Salamence.

Anyway, Charizard is one of 'em. I believe Mewtwo is as well, along with Arceus. A lot more but I can't really be bothered to list. :x

Of course, Tyranitar and Garchomp and Haxorus. But I want to throw in Dialga because you know... people think big and sturdy = awseum!1!

Also Reuniclus and Beheeyem need to be here. Really.

Pokemon like Hydreigon and Pikachu and Arceus are overrated but deserve their praise.

I think that Pokemon such as Arceus, Snivy, Oshawott and Lucario are overrated.
I'm not going to agree with Pikachu being overrated, even though it is

Ok then, its asking in general right, then:

-Charizard
-Pikachu
-I believe Lucario has some sort of Rating
-Garchomp
-Legendaries (Most of them)
