Sadly, some Pokemon are considered unpopular. Pokemon like Simisage, for example, being placed dead last in a Japanese Pokemon popularity poll.

Some people love ratatta even though it’s one of the thirty rubbish Pokémon

As well as loving graveler

I am the One Above All. I see through many eyes. I build with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I am all-powerful. My only weapon is love. The mystery intrigues me.

idk if you count Ludicolo as "unpopular" but I feel like it's certainly overlooked, and it's actually one of my favourite Water-type Pokemon out there!

I've also had a soft spot for Whiscash for some reason. Forgettable Pokemon by a lot of people probably, but ever since using one myself in third gen I couldn't help see how useful it was for my own party.

Klefki. Fight me.

I actually think the majority of object Pokemon are more creative than the ones that are based on living creatures...anyone can design a Pokemon based off an animal. ANYONE. I've seen Deviantartists create Pokemon that look more like Pokemon than ACTUAL Pokemon from Gen V onwards, in fact. It takes real creativity to design one based off an everyday object. As someone who frequently falls victim to misplacing my keys, I love that Pokemon actually came up with its own answer to "where the hell are my keys?"

Klefki
I always though it's one of the most popular Pokémon from Kalos. I don't think I've seen anyone here who would hate it.

But aside from Klefki, it's most of the Gen II, V, VI and VII Pokémon, which I feel don't get enough credit. To be honest I really love designs from these gens more that let's say Gen I and IV. To pick a few: Audino and its Mega Form, Sunkern line, Ledyba line, Spritzee and Swirlix lines.

Also Nidoqueen > Nidoking.

Huh, really? A lot of people I've encountered list it as one of their most hated...although from what I understand its rather useful, so from a battling standpoint it may have some popularity. From a design standpoint I've seen practically nothing but hatred for it though.


I feel like Spinarak/Ariados don't get enough love either. I was so excited to get one in Silver when I played through it for the first time, and even if it's not the most useful of Pokemon, it's still a great design. Especially the shiny one!

Raichu - it's the supperior form of Pikachu, and yet it's unpopural since Pikachu is "way cuter"
Dunsparce - It's cry is cute, but i rather hear it in non generation 2 Eeveelutions (like Leafeons in pokemon gold christmas)
Vaporeon - This pokemon gets a bad reputation from 1kids's (a)bridged dubs, i kinda like those cat/fennec/fishes, i even named one after my doggie and two (females) after LM characters

Victreebel.

Since hard-hitting Grass-types are few and far between if Bulbasaur wasn't my Starter, I'm actually happy with how good Victreebel can be, provided that you let Weepinbell learn Razor Leaf first before using the Leaf Stone.

Vicious plants do catch my eye every now and then. The Bellsprout line is no exception.

Dunsparce, even though it's already established a fan-base of its own. Specifically Shiny Dunsparce. I chained one in Pearl that I used as my mascot for a long time. I found my first full-odds one in Virtual Console Gold not long ago that renewed my love for the squishy bee-snake.

I also love Lickitung (not so much Lickilicky). In fact, it was probably my original favorite. I remember getting a card of it at Burger King in 1999 and showing it off at school like it was the coolest thing. It even inspired me to write a short story, "Lickitung Steps On Its Tongue," for an elementary school assignment. I think its HGSS sprite is particularly adorable!


Licky!

Mothim was one that I didn't stand out to me much at first, but getting into moth-watching and realizing how gorgeous its Shiny was made me fall in love. Now I even like Burmy, but I think that one has more to do with actual bagworms than the Pokémon. I ordered a Burmy plush shortly after seeing my first bagworm in action—such interesting creatures!

I also like Vanillite (my favorite BW Pokémon). Vanilluxe is fine, but Vanillite's a cutie! I'd happily use it on a semi-competitive Ice-Monotype team if it had gotten Snow Warning like Vanilluxe.

Stantler. I get that it looks kind of odd... but I love the design based on a reindeer.

Vanilluxe... I mean, I don’t get why this gets hate, because you have to be super creative to see an ice cream cone and say, hey, that should be a pokemon!

Jynx... yeah, it looks like Nicki Minaj, but it’s an ice type, and I will protect any ice type at all costs.

The Litwick line. Also Pumpkaboo. There are a lot of Pokemon from B/W and also X/Y that don't get a lot of love.

All of them. If it's unpopular, then it must be brilliant. A touch of cynicism can take you far. Just invert society's preferences and you're at the doorstep of something great. Mind you, they can get often stuff right. Not always.

I bloody love 5th Gen's elemental monkeys, and every soul of Gen I. Jynx especially, and Mr Mime and all that lot. Gulpin is an inspiration. Raticate is sensational. Beartic is epic and Magmar has these strange seductive eyes that are hard to resist. Anything that is considered ugly and I adore it.

A lot of people seem to find the Chespin line one of the worst out of all the starters (especially Quilladin), but I've always really liked them. Chespin's easily my favorite starter from Kalos, and would probably be in my top 5 favorite starter Pokemon overall.

Incineroar - A lot of people wanted Litten's final evolution to stay on 4 feet, but I've actually loved this thing since the day it was leaked. The only bad thing about it is its low Speed.

Tangrowth - This thing is a good battler, with high attacking stats and physical defense. As the generations passed, it became even better, with it receiving Regenerator in Gen 5, and Gen 6 introducing the Assault Vest. Also, I think it's adorable.

Ferrothorn - Popular in competitive battling, but not outside of that, so I think it counts.

Magmortar - This Pokemon was the MVP of my Pokemon Yin Black playthrough. Besides, I like it more than Electivire.

Rhyperior - While Rhydon has a better design, Rhyperior makes up for it by being a good battler.

Cradily - I've used this thing in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and it pulled its weight.

Lanturn - This cute thing has 2 of my favourite types: Water and Electric. It's also a decent battler, with its good Special Defense.

Hitmontop - The cutest of the Hitmons.

Mr. Mime and Jynx - I actually don't think they're creepy.

Other not so popular Pokemon that I love include Venomoth, Exeggutor, Weezing, Hariyama, Shedinja, Gorebyss, Gastrodon, Drifblim, Seismitoad, Sigilyph, Vanilluxe, Florges, Clawitzer, Shiinotic, and Turtonator.

I honestly don't keep track of what's the consensus on the popularity of Pokémon. But I'll say this: I don't like any of the evolutions (and specially mega evolutions) of old Pokémon shoehorned generations later, which I assume are more popular than the originals. But I'll always prefer the originals:

Raichu > Alolan Raichu
Magneton > Magnezone
Exeggutor > Alolan Exeggutor
Marowak > Alolan Marowak
Lickitung > Lickilicky
Rhydon > Rhyperior
Tangela > Tangrowth
Electabuzz > Electivire
Magmar > Magmortar
Porygon2 > Porygon-Z
Togetic > Togekiss
Aipom > Ambipom
Yanma > Yanmega
Murkrow > Honchkrow
Misdreavous > Mismagius
Gligar > Gliscor
Sneasel > Weavile
Piloswine > Mamoswine

Your choices are all valid and lovable and those are Pokémon that really deserve more love.

On my end, Fearow. I felt it pretty forgettable at first compared to Pidgeot/to and the Starly line, but writing a Fearow for an RP and studying their anatomy really made me start liking them and I really think they need that extra bit of screentime.

Always felt theses ones never got as much appreciation, or get used as much.

I personally like Stunfisk, for some reason its derpiness really stands out to me. Hahah!

A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

Bro how can you like a Pokemon and almost forget it exists lol?

Qwilfish is also not as weak as people complain about, it's not luvdisc tier. It's actually decent under rain. IMO An evolution will ruin it.

Klefki. Fight me.

I actually think the majority of object Pokemon are more creative than the ones that are based on living creatures...anyone can design a Pokemon based off an animal. ANYONE. I've seen Deviantartists create Pokemon that look more like Pokemon than ACTUAL Pokemon from Gen V onwards, in fact. It takes real creativity to design one based off an everyday object. As someone who frequently falls victim to misplacing my keys, I love that Pokemon actually came up with its own answer to "where the hell are my keys?"
Klefki's popular though. Especially since its competitive viable with prankster, which is not a good reason for me, but a good reason for others to elevate its popularity.

At this point I think Gen V's controversy has died down by a lot. Trubbish is well liked by a lot now. The anti circlejerk is in full effect. People who hated on it have moved on and never were big Pokemon fans anyways. Now Stantler on the other hand, and Girafarig and the rest of the like, almost no Pokemon fan cares about.
