Underrated Pokemon

Drop any Pokemon you don't see getting enough love, whether it be casually or competitively

I'll start with Mega Houndoom. I starting using one on my competitive sun (weather, not the game) team and the instant base 210 SpAtk (thanks to Solar Power) is fuckin insane. She melts through pretty much anything, regardless of resistances, especially after using Nasty Plot.

I pick Beedrill over butterfree any day.
Nidoking shoulda been the O.G starter like they intended. U_U
Unknown G is the best out of the Unknowns, but the Unknowns are adorable and deserve love

Alolan Persain is pretty epic. I captured one and named her Sassy. She's one of my most reliable Pokemon so far.

I have very fond memories of having this otter boi as my starter in W2. Samurott’s concept itself is just really cool and I like how it evolves from something cute into something really badass. There are tons of Gen 5 mons that deserve way more appreciation imo. I feel like Game Freak themselves don’t even give Black/White enough attention — for crying out loud, the only Gen 5 Pokemon that got a mega evolution was Audino :(

At least the only Pokemon to get a GigantaMax Form outside the first and current generation was a generation 5 Pokemon, although it was Garbodor. Speaking of which...

...he's cute, chonky and badass, but people don't like him because he is a bag of trash.

Umbreon. Yeah, I know it's a popular mon, but most tend to drop it out for other mons as of late especially on the competive front (not that I actually get into that side of the series). Got an Umbreon named Tyler that I've had since I picked the games back up in XY, been using 'im in all the different games since.



As for an actual completely underrated mon, any of the Regional Birds, but the Talonflame and Corviknight lines especially.

I was so bummed when Mightyena didn't make the SwSh cut. However, I am immensely grateful for the Pokemon Fit/Sitting Cuties series because there are now/will finally be plushes for Pokemon who never had any before! I jumped the gun and got a Mightyena from Japan instead of waiting for the US release the moment they were available. She sits on my desk and is my "therapy dog" whenever I get stressed during Zoom classes.

It was a missed opportunity to not give Mightyena Strong Jaw. Hyenas have among the strongest bites in the natural world.

I know what you mean by favorites not making it into Pokemon sword and shield.



Just... Drowzee. Fat, silly Drow-Drow. I don't care what anyone says, I think he is kind of adorable. Also that expression is just hilarious. He looks like he is high as a kite right now. I guess all those dreams he has been eating has been giving him some side effect.
