    Let’s all be honest: there are some Pokémon out there that are less than thrilling. Be it a merely mild Pokédex entry or a “meh” design, Nintendo and GameFreak sorta lost interest in some of their additions to the Pokémon World. List your best of the worst of the best below.

    Roggenrola and Bergmite, I think, are mediocre. They both exist for type balance, but are pretty bland in their own ways.

      Dunsparce is pretty shunned, but is not mediocre in my eyes

        I thought of Venomoth immediately

          I instantly thought of Voltorb. It's an okay electric type but not as strong as others. Plus, it's like a pokeball who evolves into an...upside-down pokeball? Yeah, that's my 2 cents.

          I think a number of single-type Pokemon can fall into this category- they aren't bad per se, but there's nothing special about them. Basculin, Seaking, and Lumineon are some of the first ones that come to mind, and that's just from the Water type.

            Paras/Parasect for me. Slow and very weak for a Bug/Grass Type who despite having the Bug Typing is weak to Bug type moves(and doubly weak to Fire and Flying but who’d have it out in that situation). Furthermore it’s basically a Mushroom, hence as bland as Voltorb/Electrode in design.

              My pick goes to Maractus. "Hey, we want to put a desert cactus Pokemon in Gen V but can't use Cacnea and Cacturne."

              "Uhh, how about a pokemon that looks like a friendlier version of Cacturne but doesn't have an additional type aside of grass and doesn't evolve?"

                I was thinking of Mothim since I still keep forgetting about it even though its design isn't bad by any means. It just isn't too memorable to me.

                I just remembered how mediocre 50% of Gen 1's Pokémon are.

                  The thing with mediocre pokemon is I don’t remember them because they’re, well, mediocre. Voltorb and Electrode are just colored spheres, and a lot of baby pokemon just feel kind of “meh” to me.

                    I definitely agree that Stantler is incredibly mediocre. I'm doing a Normal monotype run through Gold right now, and I REALLY wanted to use Stantler - but after looking at its stats and movepool, I replaced it with Togetic, of all things. There's really nothing it can do that other Normal types can't do better, it has no niche at all. It's just... There. I agree that it should've been half Psychic type - maybe it could've been a counterpart to Girafarig that way.

                    It is cool looking, though.
