1. Silcoon and Cascoon

Least Popular Pokemon Silcoon and Cascoon
Silcoon and Cascoon

Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire introduced 135 plus new Pokemon which were made to replace certain old Pokemon from the first two games. The Pokemon meant to be replaced were Common Wild Pokemon and it is in these games that Silcoon and Cascoon were introduced.

They were considered to be boring Pokemon ever since they were introduced and had a cocoon shape. These Pokemon were clearly derived from other two similar shaped Pokemon called Metapod and Kakuna who were considered to be just as useless.

Both these Pokemon are evolved from Wrumple and are unable to learn any other move other than ‘Harden’ until they reach the evolution level of Dustox or Beautifly.

Fun Fact: In the Survey it was only Silcoon who got no votes as Cascoon got at least two.

2. Gothita


Gothita made her debut in Pokemon Black and the design of Gothita was based on the gothic Lolita fashion trend in Japan. A movement that saw the people of Japan is obsessed with Victorian Clothing and dark colors. 

Well, as the votes in the survey suggest Gothita is not that cool when compared to what she becomes when she evolves – Gothitelle and Gothorita.

3. Eelektrik


This Pokemon was introduced in Pokemon Black and White, Eelektrik is the middle evolution of two Pokemon – Tynamo & Eelektross. Unfortunately, this little Pokemon got no love from the users of r/Pokemon. Eelektross got 49 votes and Tynamo got 6 however Poor Eelektrik in the middle was the only one who lost out.

The Pokemon has got no arms and does not have the most appealing of looks. This could be why nobody chose Eelektrik as their favorite Pokemon.

4. Yungoos


Yungoos is the final Pokemon in the list of characters who got no love from the users and it might be this Pokemon that surprised users the most. These Pokemon were made after Asia’s Javan mongoose by keeping them as the model.

It was surprising that no one voted for this mongoose like Pokemon as the character also has a funny resemblance to a certain American President which would have at least got them a few votes for the sake of humor.

These Pokemon debuted in Pokemon Sun and Moon in the year 2017 along with Gumshoos. Both the Yungoos and the Gumshoos share a very identical look however, Gumshoos managed to get four votes.

Fun Fact: Fire-type Pokémon named Simisear is the least popular Pokemon in Japan.
