You may not have seen it coming decades ago, but Pokemon is one of the most popular franchises in the world right now. Everything from its trading cards to its games sells like mad, so Pikachu's pockets stay padded. As the series mascot, Pikachu gets tons of love from fans, and so do hundreds of his friends. But sadly, not every monster gets treated quite the same.
Yes, you know it just as well as we all do. Pokemon has its favorites. Whether we're talking Pikachu or Charizard, the franchise has a group of monsters it loves the best. However, the favorites picked by fans are often different, and that is why the fandom is taking time to rank the most underrated beasts.
As you can see in the slides below, the picks went live after a user asked the question on fans' minds. When it comes to Pokemon, which of its underrated monsters is the best? Of course, fans were quick to share there picks, and you can read some of the most popular pulls below. So if we are all lucky, Pokemon might just revisit these monsters in a project down the line...

The Idea of It All
Super cool conceptually and having 1 HP makes it an interesting oddity even though it's pretty much useless in a fight. pic.twitter.com/b0t04LYA6J— Red, but in the future 🔞 (@FlannaganTheRed) December 27, 2021

We Need More
Spheal is the perfect pokemon to me. Its got a clear real life equivalent, stylized yo fit pokemon, and its just got such a naturally fun charisma in its design. It finally got some love with the winter merch selection this year but I want more😭 pic.twitter.com/pYSphie6hh— Lūkē (@Son0fTito) December 26, 2021
