Which Useless Pokémon Will You Catch?

You got: Magikarp

Yes, we all know Magikarp evolves into a fantastic beast of the sea, but in its current state it's worthless. It can't attack until it reaches a high enough level but why waste your time training one? Attack stat is absolutely dismal and those kinds of attacks are all it learns! Just use some rare candy if you're trying to complete the Pokedex. It's such a terrible Pokemon, you have to get conned into buying one.

You got: Dunsparce

This Pokémon is a gigantic disappointment. It's a so-called snake but doesn't act like one. It has wings and can't even fly. There's no saving grace to this guy. If only it could evolve we could see some potential, but there is absolutely no reason to have this Pokémon.

You got: Castform

It's cute and adapts to weather but it sure is a complete waste. If given the opportunity, don't talk to the person in the weather station after beating the bad guys, once you receive it you cannot return it. There's probably a reason someone is just tossing a Pokémon to you. If you could pawn it off to some youngster for a few Pokédollars, you might as well.

You got: Kricketot

Kricketot are one of those generic Bug-types from the beginning of an area, so of course it's useless. There's no benefit to having one unless you want an all musical team of Pokémon. They've got some of the worst stats, have no moves, and look at it...it's a bug! Weak to Fire and Rock-types so just set the whole species aflame and crush it with a boulder.

You got: Ledian

This guy looks like a space-age Power Ranger bug but looks can be deceiving. The only cool thing about Ledian is its four fists for punching however, still a useless Pokémon. Its pre-evolution, Ledyba, is just as terrible. They both lack the stats to be used successfully. Look at it...just floating around, mouth agape, not doing anything productive.

You got: Unown

Wow, you got an Unown. Congratulations. No really. You caught the most gimmicky Pokémon ever. They're living letters and don't do anything unless you're in Johto. They only have a single attack and spell out a giant F-U. Unown only exist to move story lines and if you think that's useful, by all means, have fun catching all 28 of them.

You got: Slaking

This lazy Pokémon is certainly strong but sleeps a heck of a lot more than any Snorlax. It will fall asleep in the middle of a battle! How much of an ass do you have to be to just nap in-between turns. You know what else, it has the audacity to scratch its belly and pick its nose right in front of you, to show how much it cares about its trainer. And after you're happy to see this giant lump faint, it just rolls on over, like nothing even happened. You're better off not evolving him and sticking with Vigoroth.

You got: Basculin

This is the Unova equivalent of Tentacool and way too common to be of any legitimate use. If you end up surfing in Unova, you'll run into one of these suckers. Nobody cares there's a red and blue-striped Basculin because nobody wants one anyway! It's got fairly low stats and destructive abilities. Plus, there's no evolution, not even a pre-evolution to make having one seem somewhat tolerable. It was literally added last minute after they realized there's no fish. What a load of bass!

You got: Phione

Congratulations, you just caught a legendary Pokémon! But you know what, you might as well release it or trade it to your little cousin for a Yanma, because it's utterly useless. It's got the same stats as a Glalie, so you're better off just getting one of those. Phione are basically a dumbed down version of Manaphy both stat-wise and physically. Actually, I'm even wondering how you caught a Phione in the first place. Not only is the method of finding one totally outdated, it's basically a cash grab to make you buy another Pokémon game in order to get Manaphy. So, really Phione is just some sort of leftovers stuffed in the back of the fridge.

You got: Carbink

Check out this literal looking turd of a Pokémon. It's a floating hunk of rock with no positive qualities. Sure, they could talk in the Diancie movie but, don't all Pokémon talk in those? People will use these turds as tanks and block whatever you throw at them. At least they produce diamonds that you can sell to Team Flare. In fact, catch all the Carbink and sell the Pokemon for double.
