    Default "Overhyped" things in Pokémon.

    By this, I mean the Pokémon that you think have received too much 'hype', when in reality they're just not as good as you thought they would be.

    This also includes aspects, or games, and not just the Pokémon themselves.

    I'm going to start this off with Mega Charizard X. Only because it became part Dragon type, everyone got excited (or over-excited) with it. Whilst I still think its a decent Pokémon, it didn't need all the attention it had.
    Below is my ORAS team.

    I also play Showdown, in which I have the exact same team.

    I agree with Charizard.
    Also, Gardevoir. I get it, people find you suggestive and like to fantasize about you. When will that joke get old <___<

    Agreed, I can see Lopunny being suggestive but not so much Gardevoir.

    Gardevoir and Lopunny and all of the fetish art and "their my Waifu" they get.

    Shiny Pokemon there nice and all but so rare and even if you do get one you have to find a safe place to store it if you want to restart the game.

    I've always found terms overrated and overhyped to be kind of dumb in all honesty. Yeah some Pokemon have a lot of fans but who's to say that's undeserved? Just because your opinion is in the minority doesn't make something overly hyped.

    MCX is good competitively, and adds a type that people thought it should have had for a while. Not to mention Charizard was already a fan favourite to begin with. It was obvious that it would have a lot of attention.


    I can even tell what you're thinking right now

    I think Dragon Types in general are just way too overrated. There are always NPCs that are like "oh I train Dragon, the most powerful type there is blah blah Dragonite blah blah Garchomp blah blah Salamence" you get the idea. In all reality, the type itself is pretty dismal, it's just the fact that so many legends and pseudo-legends have it that makes it popular.

    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It wasn't as good as people make it out to be. I gave it a rating of 6/10 because of the stuff that was left out. Sure it was good to go back to Hoenn but in the end it wasn't as fantastic as others say it is. Fairy type wasn't that good either and it being super effective against Dragon types made no sense what so ever. The only decent fairy types is Xerneas and Arceus with pixie plate. The rest was just awful and completely unusable.
    Currently playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. No longer believing in another gen 6 game coming. Now expecting gen 7.

    Currently own: All gen 4 main series games, all gen 5 games and the all four gen 6 games.

    I honestly like Mega Charizard X. All hype aside, it is my second favorite Mega Pokemon.

    Anyways, people aren't going to like me saying this, but EVs, IVs, egg moves, natures, and anything else competitive. That's all people seem to care about, and I say they just ruin the game. (I'm not looking for a debate here, I'm just saying)
    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program and technology. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, with friends new and old.

    Check it out!

    I honestly despise Fairy-type in general. My Hydreigon once was powerful and terrifying, and he is now a joke. Dark-type and Dragon-type were my favorite types...

    So many are confusing "overhype" with "butthurt."

    I HAVE DIANCIE, POKEBANK CELEBI, AND SOME SHINIES FOR TRADE.

    THE LIST MAY BE UPDATED FROM TIME TO TIME.

    Well, there was overhype when Game Freak told us that the Fairy type is super effective against Dragon, but didn't introduce much Fairy types and they mostly had weak stats.

    Have you played with it in Pokemon Amie? Or seen its Mega Evolution? It IS meant to be suggestive. It's based on a Playboy bunny

    As a general rule, I will never understand why the fandom actually thinks the first few announced Pokémon of each generation are actually going to be any good without HAs or other stuff. Most of the early marketing stuff is generally early route fodder, so they are actually specifically designed to suck, yet most people believe these things will go straight to OU or UU.

    However, one specific instance I can think of during the early release period of X/Y would be Mega Aggron's Heavy Slam. Aggron doesn't get a lot of additional weight upon its Mega Evolution, yet Heavy Slam became the major associated move with it.

    Actually, yes, we can say it is underserved. I mean, all forms of marketing exist purely to create undeserved hype.

    that's a pretty unpopular opinion there, sport, and its great you said it, but that just ain't right





    on a serious note, mega aggron. it may have just been me, but the thing that made aggron any fun to use was recoil-less STAB head smash. defense is for chumps

    I feel like all of the "special features" are overhyped such as Pokemon Amie and things like contests. To be honest, most people dont play them after you are forced to do so or evolving pokemon such as Eevee into Sylveon.

    I think I agree, too. Before ORAS was released, as these games were being promoted, I think there was some overemphasis in the Contests and back to the time after X and Y was officially announced and before it came out, Game Freak/Nintendo definitely had put some overemphasis on Sylveon and Pokemon Amie.

    I have always found the concept of having a Pokemon following the trainer or Pokemon being outside of their Poke Ball in general to be a very overhyped concept (at least in the games, can't speak for other parts of the franchise).
    When it comes to the games, I think HG/SS are vastly overhyped games and they don't deserve any of the praise they get.

    I can't agree more.
