    Excadrill is pretty overrated. It has potential to be a cool Pokemon, but I just can't get over the fact that it looks like someone stuck in a mole suit. Maybe one day I'll appreciate it more.

    Oh yes. I'm using a Luxray named Ampere on my Platinum right now, and its attack is so crazy it's not even funny. It's a real powerhouse. Now it has Wild Charge in fifth gen, which is amazing.

    I don't know about Jolteon or Arcanine, but Alakazam is a total beast in-game. It can OHKO pretty much anything that isn't dark type. Gyarados is a bit harder to use in the third gen games since most of its moves were special, but it's much better after the split.

    Arcanine is overrated, for sure. There are better fire types out there, and I don't just mean the ones with dual typing - I mean the pure fire types. Gyrados is overrated as well - water/flying = bad typing. Very bad.

    Umm, Linoone is now becoming underrated - it is quick, and has a huge move pool. And I actually have a soft spot for Armadalo - great pokemon, but barely ever mentioned.

    Arceus is a bit too overrated, I am getting fed up of how overrated it is.
    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    I love Luxray. Bred one with Ice Fang in HG to give him something against grounds.

    That's right. When I discovered how many people were using Extremekiller Arceus (both in my own battles and battles on YouTube), I was greatly upset. It's so cheap! It gets priority, and after a few Swords Dances, it's going to be killing everything with priority! ARRGH!

    On an unrelated note: Jynx is somewhat underrated. It's rarely used, and can be quite dangerous if played properly.
    I will be less active as time goes on; I have many things to do to get into college and will be focusing on that, so if you don't hear from me for a while, just be patient. I will respond, but it may take some time.

    i once played a team over wifi that went like this:

    azelf
    jirachi
    celebi
    mew
    heatran
    zapdos

    i think all those legends are completely overrated. i hate them.

    Im sorry, how does this make him overrated? Maybe if people were overhyping it(like how rhyperior was prior to people finding out how he actually played), but even then its one of the best sets for arceus. In a matter of fact, only a few pokemon can single handedly best it and still be usable outside of that.

    I feel that Charizard is grossly overrated as to me a pokemon with a 4X weakness and fairly lackluster defenses is not something to brag about. He is only liked so much because he is a dragon and he is among the first 151. An underrated pokemon is Walrein! It's HP makes up for its slow speed and mediocre defenses, but with a Defense Curl/Ice Ball combo along with STAB, it can tear through opponents. This probably goes without saying but, this is entirely in my own opinion.

    I find that Heracross is underrated. It is lethal if used properly. The swords dance + flame orb + facade combo is deadly.

    Overrated has to be Lucario. His speed isn't ideal.

    Overrated Pokemon:
    Azelf - Everytime I use a UU team I run into a ton of these, and all of them are leads. However, Aerodactyl is better than Azelf at setting up SR.
    Mew - It's so unpredictable. True. But that "unpredictability" makes it overrated.Sure it learns any TM and any HM, but it's outclassed at anything it does, besides maybe the Baton Pass set.
    Haxorus - 147 Atk? Yes. Dragon Dance? Yes. Speed? NO. Haxorus is slow and pretty frail, it falls prey to any Salamence/Weavile/Mamoswine/Hydreigon while it's Dragon Dancing. Also, it's ugly.
    Volcarona - Quad-weak to Stealth Rock, cannot take physical hits. It does get Quiver Dance but usually it only gets one chance to sweep due to SR.

    Underrated Pokemon:
    Dusknoir - I took down a lot of OU teams with Dusknoir. He's got Will-o-Wisp, Pain Split, Payback, Earthquake and the elemental punches to wreak havoc. I don't understand however how he did fell from OU straight to RU in Gen V.
    Rhyperior - Quad-weak to Grass and Water, but he's got Solid Rock, massive HP and massive Defense to somewhat counter this weakness. He has Edgequake and 140 Atk to destroy you and Megahorn to punish Grass-types. Choice Band + 140 Atk + Stone Edge = ULTRA PWNAGE.

    Overrated:
    - nearly all Eeveelutions (especially Umbreon, which sucks at everything it tries to do)
    - Charizard, among the circle of older ex-fans who think new Pokemon suck because they haven't seen them when they were kids

    I can't think of any underrated pokes at the moment.

    Overrated:
    Hydreigon with Draco Meteor. I've met several of these guys in random wi-fi battles, and nearly all of them started out with using Draco Meteor, and none of them held the White Herb (I think I've only met 1 that didn't do so). They're dragons, and they have great special attack, but they can't OHKO everything with Draco Meteor.

    Underrated:
    Archeops. I'd really like to experiment with a double or triple-battle team showcasing Archeops and a good defensive skill-swapper. Should be interesting.

    I think Dragon types are overrated. Yeah they're resilient, but Dragon is only super effective on Dragon. Kinda the same with Ghost but it's also super on Psychic.

    Underated: At the moment, Raikou. I made a team around a 4 special attack Raikou, it's doing ok right now. Needs more testing but eh :/ There aren't too many OU Electric types, except Rotom-W, Jolteon, and Magnezone.

    Rapidash is underrated, yet it's one of my favorite Pokémon. Its fast and it barely has a move pool good in enough to survive

    Except for Altaria, the forgotten defensive dragon type.
    The only other underrated Pokémon that I can think of is Fearow, and is an overrated Pokémon, I can't think of any that hasn't posted.

    Overrated: People've already mentioned Dragon types, and I know I'm gonna get a bit of hate for this, but I think Salamence is overrated. It's got good stats, but it's so....generic. No special moves, nothing to make it stick out besides being a dragon. Also, its wings look like Pringles.

    Underrated:

    Liepard. With a high speed, thunder wave, and hell, sand attack, night slash, and fake out...it can work.
