I think nearly all the starters have declined over time. There's so much hype and love for them when they first show up and then they... eventually just kinda drop down.

I remember Typhlosion and how cool he looked being so talked about way back when GSC were newer, but nowadays it seems like no one mentions him much at all?

pokemon from gen 6 such as furfrou (who was soooo popular when x & y was released) seems like they're starting to be forgotten :(

According to me,Flygon was very popular back in the day, at least where I was. It was pretty cool. And Typhlosion, as Sheep said. Darmanitan too was more popular before than it is now.

I feel that Pokémon like the Charmander line and Lucario have declined in popularity. I have noticed that people think that they are unoriginal and uninspired and think that object based Pokémon are "creative".

I'm genuinely curious as to who you've been talking to that considers those lines to be "unoriginal and uninspired" bc I've never heard that take in my life haha

Back before it even had an official English name, Snubbull was being pushed as one of the main Johto Pokemon along with Marill. It was popular for a short while, but until it became a Fairy type, I don't think I ever heard anyone talking about it, especially not as one of their favorites.

I’d throw Heatran into the mix. As a legendary Pokémon it never really stood strong on its own and isn’t a part of a notable trio. As the metagame changed, so did it’s popularity.

God, I wish...try telling that to Game Freak, who put Lucario into EVERYTHING and have given Charizard more transformations than Goku at this point. You'd be hard-pressed to find two Pokemon MORE popular than those two.


Honestly I find it hard to say any Pokemon have really declined in popularity, because every Pokemon is somone's favourite, and the focus is always shifted to the new generation when that rolls around...except for Pokemon that are ridiculously popular, and for Gen 1, because Game Freak won't stop pandering to Gen 1 in their newer titles.

I think Zoroark has kinda declined in popularity. Not that it had much to start with. It got some boost thanks to Zorua being fairly popular and it being the first attempt at a Lucario clone, but because it was so hard to get and still isn't easy to obtain, I feel like it's kinda faded into the shadows since it lacks much of the special attention that Lucario gets.

After Gamefreak announced Ultrainstinct Charizard for SwSh I started seeing a drop on its popularity for good. Other than that, a lot of Pokemon from Johto.
Hmmm...
