I'll start with three.

3)Scizor
Because escavalier looks cooler,plus fire types are abundant...


I'm sorry, but I don't know how Escavalier could possibly look cooler than Scizor...

And most overrated is probably Charizard. Out of the fire starters he takes 2nd to last only because Emboar...

what do you mean?


Overate
1. have a higher opinion of (someone or something) than is deserved.

Garchomp? People have a high opinion of it because it is good.
Pikachu? Seriously?


Yea, Garchomp is good competitively but most people who have Pikachu/Garchomp on their list don't give a f*** about competitive play. They just think, for whatever reason, that they don't deserve that praise regardless of where that praise is coming from (it can come from things like the anime or competitive play, it doesn't matter to those people) so they're not wrong in their views as all of this is just subjective.

Uh TC, you do know that Escavalier is 4x weak to fire too.

I have to agree that Charizard is overrated due to how powerful he is at the anime but most people like him for his cool draconic appearance and not for his power. Anyway, he is getting my vote.

1. Mewtwo
2. Garchomp
3. Charizard

Sure Garchomp lives on the hype but isn't he a tad overrated? He's like Fire Emblem Awakening's Sorcerer, except it doesn't look hideous.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say any Pokemon that has a fairly high usage in OU or Uber despite failing to provide any combat benefit (for instance since Scizor and Escavalier play very differently, they can't be compared for anything other than fire weakness which isn't that big of a deal as 90% of teams will use Politoad.

As for the most overrated Pokemon, it apparently will go "Pika Pika" in game now... 0_o

in terms of looks, none, because it's all personal opinion.

^THIS!
Mewtwo IS GOOD.
Garchomp IS GOOD.
Scizor IS GOOD.
Pikachu, Jigglypuff, and Charizard are NOT good.

The word "overrated" gets tossed around WAAAAAAAAAAAY too much these days. At this point, things are bad simply because of how good they are.

Good =/= overrated.
Bad, but with a ton of praise = overrated.
