Many people who either play Pokémon, or watched the animated series through to the current season, knows that the amount of Pokémon is constantly growing. So, it is natural to let a few slip our mind from time to time. However, there are some Pokémon that were instantly forgettable in both the game and the series.
Thankfully there are a few videos on YouTube that kind of cover this subject. Watching these videos as a reference point can help remind us of those forgotten Pokémon. However, before we forget, let’s hurry up and remind you of the top 7 most forgettable Pokémon.
Mantine is a generation 2 Pokémon that closely resembles a manta ray. Quickly forgettable, it only made 6 appearances across the series and movies. In trying to give the Pokéfans a chance to hang on to the thought of Mantine, a pre-evolution form (Mantyke) were introduced. Although, it too quickly became forgotten.
Generation 5’s Beheeyem is a very commonly forgotten Pokémon. In games, the stats are depressing and encourages trainers to pick a different Pokémon. Only a handful of appearances occurred in the series. Even with a main role in a movie, this Pokémon has still managed to be forgotten along with its pre-evolution Elgyem.
Of all the moths, butterflies, and insect related Pokémon, Mothim hits number 5. This Generation 4 moth like Pokémon, actually evolves from a Pokémon that many people use and enjoy. Wormadam. It only had a handful of major roles in the series. Surprisingly, it only had 5 minor roles, making this one a generic Pokémon that we just had to remind you of.
There are plenty of fish-type Pokémon in the sea, most of them Magikarp. Well, while Magikarp has becoming the face of the water, Finneon has a face easy to forget. Generation 4’s Finneon is also a very genetic Pokémon that looks like a real species of fish you’d find in tropical waters. It does evolve, but we can’t remember what it evolves into.
A flaming ant-eater with a low stat average and no evolutionary chain, Heatmor is featured in almost any forgotten Pokémon list. Much like our number 1 choice, it has become so known to be forgotten that people are starting to remember him. This gen 5 Pokémon is out shined by its rival Durant, in both battle and memorial existence.
Resembling a game bird, this gen 5 Pokémon is hands down the worst of the early flying type Pokémon of all generations. Even more so is the Male version of this Pokémon, just because it isn’t as colorful as the female version that many people sought to catch just to be disappointed and forgetting it was in their PC.
The way this is looking, is that Generation 5 had some bad luck with memorable Pokémon. One of the said Pokémon being our number 1, Maractus. Though kind of cute, emphasis on kind of. Maractus resembles a desert cactus with two flowers adorned on its head. As stated before, this Pokémon has become known as the most forgettable Pokémon across many trainers and YouTubers, so much so that it is probably going to be removed from this list and replaced.
There you have it, our Top-7 list of the most forgettable Pokémon in the series and games. We hope you enjoyed it.
