The 9 Most Useless Pokemon

There’s no denying that certain species are much more useless from the get-go than others. Many of these Pokemon eventually evolve into something cool and quite useful, but until then, you get what you get. Let’s take a look at some of the most useless Pokemon you could possibly have in your Pokedex, but only out of the first 151. Obviously the original Pokemon are the only ones that matter.


“Its magical and cute appeal has many admirers. It is rare and found only in certain areas.”


Clefairy is just a cute little pain. They’re hard to catch, and you need a moon stone for it to evolve into Clefable. This Pokemon looks more like a pillow than a pocket monster.


Mr. Mime

“If interrupted while it is miming, it will slap around the offender with its broad hands.”


Mr. Mime is what nightmares are made of. It’s just downright creepy, and it prefers performance over battles. It’s pretty rare in the wild, but why would you really want to catch one anyway?


“Incredibly slow and dopey. It takes 5 seconds for it to feel pain when under attack.”079Slowpoke


Slowpoke is quite dim-witted. Though it puts up (somewhat) more of a fight in battle, it’s still not super effective. It’s also a decent fisherman with its tail, though it takes an entire day to notice if something has actually bitten.


“Very lazy. Just eats and sleeps. As its rotund bulk builds, it becomes steadily more slothful.”143SnorlaxDon’t get us wrong, we bet Snorlax has an awesome life. All it does is eat and sleep. It only wakes up to eat 880 pounds of food per day. Its claim to fame is inconveniently blocking roads, unless you have a Pokeflute to make it move.


“Often found in forests, eating leaves. It has a sharp venomous stinger on its head.”

Caterpie and Weedle both faint after about one attack. Though they can at least put up a bit of a fight, Weedle has the lowest base stat total of all Poison-type Pokemon, and not one of Caterpie’s attacks is effective against Ghost-type Pokemon.


“This Pokemon is vulnerable to attack while its shell is soft, exposing its week and tender body.”



All they can do is “Harden.” Enough said.


“Famous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers and shallow puddles.”250px-129MagikarpWe get it. Magikarp evolves into Gyrados some day, which is one of the coolest water-type Pokemon ever. But until then, you’re stuck with this waste of space Pokemon for 20 levels whose signature move in battle is “Splash.” Magikarp is by far the most useless Pokemon of all time.
