The 30 Weakest Pokémon You Probably Shouldn’t Catch
This list is based solely on the Pokemon mentioned, and not their evolutions. Some of these Pokemon’s evolutions might be powerful, but it might take some hard work to get them there.
These are the 30 weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch:
The first weak Pokémon on our list is Ralts.
Ralts is a dual-type Psychic/Fairy Pokémon that was introduced to the Pokémon world in Generation III.
It’s 50% male and 50% female, and at level 20, evolves into Kirlia.
Ralts only stands at 0.4m tall and weighs a meagre 6.6kg, which you think would play to its advance, however, Ralts is slow and doesn’t have a wide variety of abilities like some of the strongest Pokémon.
Paras is a dual-type Bug/Grass Pokémon that made its debut in Generation I.
Paras is 50% female and 50% male and evolves into Parasect at level twenty-four, which is a slight improvement to its weaker self.
However, Paras is pretty darn weak all together and only weighs in at 5.4kg at 0.3m tall, which makes it an easy target for anyone to catch or battle.
Ditto was introduced in Generation I and is a normal-type Pokémon that is not known to evolve from or into any other Pokémon.
Just about the only thing Ditto is useful for is breeding. Ditto can be bred with other Pokémon to produce eggs of other species, which might actually turn out to be strong.
Ditto is genderless, stands at 0.3m tall and weighs approximately 4.0kg.
Introduced to the Pokémon World in Generation IV, Burmy is a Bug-type Pokémon thats evolutions are gender dependant.
At level 20, female Burmy evolves into Wormadam and a male Burmy evolves into Mothim.
In its normal forme, Burmy is 50% female and 50% male and stands at 0.2m tall, weighing 3.4kg.
Burmy is the twenty-seventh weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch!
The next weakest Pokémon is Kakuna.
This Pokémon is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon that first made an appearance in Generation I.
Once it reaches level ten it evolves into Beedrill, which is hardly any more impressive than its current form, just a little more hardcore looking with a few more abilities.
Kakuna stands at 0.6m tall and weighs approximately 10kg.
With its only ability being to Shed its skin, you might want to think twice before trying to catch this one.
The next weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch is Wishiwashi.
This water-type Pokémon was introduced in Generation VII and it’s unknown if it evolves from or into any other Pokémon.
However, once it reaches level ten, Wishiwashi can change forms using its schooling ability.
Wishiwashi is 50% female and 50% male, weighing in at 0.3kg at 0.2m tall.
Abra is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced to the Pokémon world in Generation I.
Abra evolves into Kadabra at level 16, and, is 75% male and 25% female.
This Pokémon can sense danger through its telepathic radar and can teleport to a safe location when needed.
Abra is 0.9m high and weighs around 19.5kg.
Patrat is a normal-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation V.
At level 20, Patrat evolves into Watchdog and has the ability to run away or use his keen eyes.
Patrat is 50% female and 50% male, and, stands at 0.5m tall, weighing 11.6kg.
This Pokémon is always nervous and seems on guard all the time.
Next up is Cosmog, a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced to the Pokémon World in Generation VII.
Cosmog is genderless and evolves into Cosmoem once it reaches level 45.
It’s 0.2m tall and weighs 0.1kg, which makes it the smallest and lightest Pokémon on our list.
Cosmog is so small and frail that the wind can easily blow it away.
Shedinja is a Dual-type Bug/Ghost Pokémon introduced in Generation III.
Shedinja is considered to be a special evolution of Nicada due to it only appearing when Nincada evolves into Ninjask at level 20.
This Pokémon is genderless and stands at 0.8m tall, weighing around 1.2kg.
Luvdisc is a Water-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation III.
Luvdisc is not known to evolve from or into any other Pokémon and is 25% male and 75% female.
Its body is flat in shape and looks like a heart, hence the name, Lovedisc.
It stands at 0.6m tall and weighs around 8.7kg.
Pinsir is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.
Whilst Pinsir is not known to evolve from or into any other Pokémon, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Pinsir if it uses the Pinsirite.
Pinsir is 50% female and 50% male and stands at 1.5m tall, weighing 55kg.
While it might look like a strong and intimidating Pokémon, Pinsar is slow and clumsy, which is why it’s considered to be one of the weakest Pokémon in the Pokémon world.
The next weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch is Beedrill.
It’s a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon that was introduced in Generation 1.
Beedrill is 50% male and 50% female and evolves from Kakuna at level 10, and, is the final form of Weedle.
Beedrill is also able to Mega Evolve, using the Beedrillite, and transforms into Mega Beedrill.
Coming in at number seventeen on the list is Bidoof.
Bidoof is a normal-type Pokémon that was introduced to the game in Generation IV.
This Pokémon is able to evolve into Bibarel once it reaches level 15.
It’s 50% female and 50% male and stands around 0.5m tall, weighing approximately 20kg.
Bidoff has short legs, a dark brown snout and a small red nose, and it’s surprisingly agile for is stature.
Farfetch’d is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon that was introduced in Generation I.
It is unknown if Farfetche’d has evolved from or is able to evolve into any other Pokémon.
Although Farfetch’d is known to be a bit of a fighter, it’s not the best warrior in the world and is pretty easily defeated.
Farfetch’d is 50% male and 50% female and stands at 0.8m tall, weighing around 15kg.
Feebas is a water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.
When levelled up, Feebas evolves into Milotic and uses Adaptability and Swim Fast as it’s main two abilities.
Feebas is 50% female and 50% male, standing around 0.6m tall and weighing 7.4kg.
Even predators ignore this fish due to its peculiar appearance, so definitely don’t catch this one!
Zubat is a dual-type Poison Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation 1.
It is 50% male and 50% female and can evolve into Golbat at level twenty-two.
Zubat is 0.8m tall and weighs approximately 7.5kg.
With abilities like “Inner focus” and “Infiltrator” as its main defence, it’s no wonder why Zubat is one of the weakest Pokémon of them all.
Next up is Azurill, a dual-type Normal/fairy baby Pokémon that was introduced in Generation III.
Azurill evolves into Marill and is 25% male and 75% female.
Azurill uses its tail to fend off enemies bigger than itself and also uses “Sap Sipper” and “Huge Power” to do some damage.
However, the damage caused by these abilities are tiny in comparison to other Pokémon that it would come up against.
Wurmple is a Bug-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation III.
It evolves into either Silcoon or Cascoon at level seven, depending on the value of its personality.
Wurmple is 50% male and 50% female and stands at 0.3m tall, weighing 3.6kg.
With abilities like “Run Away” and “Shield Dust”, it’s pretty easy to see why Wurmple is the twelfth weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch.
Wobbuffet is a Second Generation Psychic-type Pokémon that evolves into Wynaut, once it reaches level 15.
This Pokémon is 50% male and 50% female and weighs in at 28.5kg at 1.3m tall.
Telepathy is Wobbuffet’s main ability, however, it will become super aggressive if you go anywhere near its tail.
So, although it’s weak in general, it can still put up a fight if you touch its tail!
The tenth weakest Pokémon in the Pokémon world is Vanilluxe.
This Pokémon is an Ice-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation V.
Once it hits level 47, it can evolve into Vanilish and is the final form of Vanillite.
It’s 50% male and 50% female and stands at 1.3m tall, weighing 57.5kg.
With its warning ability being “Ice Body or Snow” and its hidden ability being “Weak Armor”, it’s pretty obvious to see why it ended up on this list.
Introduced in Generation II, Sunkern is a Grass-Type Pokémon that evolves into Sunflora when it’s exposed to the Sun Stone.
Sunkern is 50% male and 50% female, standing at 0.3m tall and weighing around 1.8Kg.
It’s common knowledge that Sunkern is known to be pretty weak and therefore does nothing but feed until it evolves.
Definitely avoid catching this weak Pokémon!
Weedle is a dual-type Bug/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.
It can evolve into Kakuna at level seven and stands at only 0.3m tall, weighing 3.2kg.
Weedle is 50% male and 50% female and can only really retaliate when attacked or stood on.
However, the word “attack” should not be associated at all with Weedle, as it’s default ability is to “Run Away”.
Metapod is a Bug-type Pokémon that first made an appearance in Generation I.
This Pokémon evolves from Caterpie at level 7 and into Butterfree at level 10.
MetaPod is 50% male and 50% female, with a height of 0.7m and a weight of 9.9kg.
With only being able to “Shed Skin” as it’s main ability, it goes without saying that Metapod should 100% be on this list of weak Pokémon.
Coming in at number six is a Pokémon that was introduced to the Pokémon world in Generation II, and goes by the name of Delibird.
This Pokémon is a dual-type Ice/Flying Pokémon that is not known to evolve from or into any other Pokémon.
Delibird is 50% male and 50% female and stands at 0.9m tall, weighing around 16kg.
Its signature move, Present, allows it to carry things in its tail that may either hurt or heal its opponent, which is certainly not the strongest of abilities!
The fifth weakest Pokémon on the list is Magikarp.
It’s a Generation I Water-type Pokémon that evolves into Gyarados at level 20.
Magikarp is 50% male and 50% female and is only 0.9m tall, weighing 10kg.
As you can imagine from a fish, it doesn’t really have any major abilities other than a “Swift Swim”.
Wimpod is another dual-type Bug/Water Pokémon that was introduced in Generation VII.
It evolves into Golisopod at level 30 and is 50% male and 50% female.
Being cowardly by nature and wary of noise and sudden movements is exactly why Wimpod takes the fourth position amongst the weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch.
Smeargle is a Normal-type Pokémon that was introduced to the Pokémon world in Generation II.
It’s not known to evolve from or into any other Pokémon. It’s best known for its move, Sketch, which copies its opponent’s last move identically.
Smeargle is 50% male and 50% female, standing at 1.2m tall, weighing 58kg.
The second weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch is Spoink.
This Generation III Psychic-type Pokémon evolves into Grumpig once it’s reached level 32, and, is 50% male and 50% female.
Spoink stands at 0.7m tall and weighs around 30.6kg.
With “Gluttony” and “Thick Fat” being its main two abilities, is it any wonder why it’s the second weakest Pokémon of them all?!
Coming in at number one and claiming the title of the weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch is Unown.
It’s a Psychic-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation II. It’s unclear if Unown evolved from or can evolve into any other Pokémon, however, Unown has twenty-eight derivative shapes.
Standing at just 0.5m tall and weighing only 5.0kg, Unown is pretty darn small.
Apart from being able to Levitate, Unown is pretty useless in any normal circumstance or battle.
Therefore, this genderless Pokémon takes the crown as the weakest Pokémon you probably shouldn’t catch!
