The electric type creature from the Generation 5 is an eel-like Pokemon. Eelektross is known for its defensive skills. The electric type Pokemon paralyzes targets using teeth and unleashes electric shocks. Eelektrik evolves into Eelektross with Thunderstone. Though Eelektross appears in popular games like Pokemon Go, and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, it’s not celebrated like other Pokemon.


Pokemon Raichu, the evolution of Pikachu is underrated and unpopular. Raichu is an electric type Pokemon and holds the best stats when compared to its pre-evolution.

The greeny spider-like creature has earned the hate of Pokemon fans for its appearance. Spidops is a gen 9 Pokemon and an evolution of Tarountula. The bug type unit is effective in PvP raids and plays the attacking role. Pokemon fans have always hated Spidops for its uncanny features.


Pokemon Jynx appeared in anime series and classic Pokemon games like Red and Blue, Gold & Silver. Jynx design has been the talk ever since its debut.

Floatzel is a Generation 4 water type Pokemon. Fans have disliked Floatzel for its poor battle skills.

With its movesets and hidden ability, Floatzel can be the best counter against fire and grass type units.


Pokemon Delibird, the angry bird Pokemon is known for sharing food to friends and chicks. Delibird looks cute and this Ice and Flying type Pokemon has been ignored for its poor stats and vulnerability against attacks. Delibird is strong in attacking and it is still a good counter for PvP raids in the game.


Pokemon Magikarp evolves into Gyarados and this water type Pokemon doesn’t get much hype because of the  prowess of its evolution form. Magikarp spawns in regions where water flows and this fish-like creature becomes powerful in its final evolution.


Trubbish has been the most hated Pokemon for its poor design. However the poison type Pokemon has evolved stronger with better moves and strategies. Over the years, fans have started liking Trubbish over its evolution form, Garbador. Trubbish has had better stats in five-star raids and the unpopular Pokemon has become the favorite for many fans.


Kabuto is a Rock and Water type Pokemon. It’s also one of the Fossil Pokemon resurrected from a Dome Fossil. Kabuto resembles a mushroom and it also looks like a crab. Kabuto has not been used for battles because of its weaker movesets. But the rock and water type Pokemon has been a good defender in games like Red and Blue.


Pokemon Delphox, the fire and psychic type Pokemon from Generation 6 is a least known Pokemon.
