    So, lots of Pokémon now. 802, to be exact. So, which one do you see most, and which one is too highly rated in fanfics, the anime, playthroughs? Hm.

    There's too many to list, but mons I often see are Garchomp, Salamence, Lucario, a good chunk of the starters especially Charizard and Alolan Ninetales, yes I think Alolan Ninetales have joined the overrated/overused group along with Alolan Vulpix. This is mainly for writing and the games, I don't really keep much track of the anime anymore.

    There's probably a ton more tho, these are just some of the ones I see a lot.

    Well, there are a lot, but I agree that Alolan Vulpix/Ninetales and Lucario are definitely overused, not to mention the Eeveelutions. But I think Gardevoir is also used a lot in fanfiction, particularly female ones despite the fact that Gardevoir's Japanese name translates to "Sirnight." Like, Sir Knight.

    There's quite a few and my list would triple in size if I decide to say them all. Here's the ones that stick out the most

    • Charizard
    • Blaziken
    • Greninja
    • The Eeveelutions
    • Ralts and its evos
    • Lucario
    • Ninetales
    • Zoroark
    Really seems like a lot of Fox Pokémon are among the commonly used.

    I see the eeveelutions used a lot in fanfics. There's usually at least one on the protags team. Not that thats a bad thing at all though! I'm not bothered by over used Pokémon in fics as long as it's well written!

    Oh for sure! I didn't say that they were bad or anything. But I firmly believe that any work be it art or fanfiction is more likely to get attention with any of the Pokémon I listed above as opposed to one is less popular like Dewgong.

    Depending on the artist, writer, or team builder they can be good or bad. But the ones I've seen too many times in art and stories are
    Eevee and its evos
    Lucario line
    Mythical Legendaries (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi mainly, some Manaphy and I am guilty of using Shaymin and Arceus in a lot of my older stories)
    Charizard
    Blaziken
    Zoroark

    I'd have to say Pikachu for the anime, but for the games...that goes to the Eeveelutions for sure. I'm actually surprised a lot of people use them.

    As much as I love the Eeveelutions, they do get a little overused. As well as Charizard, Greninja, Braixen/Delphox, and Lopunny

    The RIolu line, the Pikachu line, and the Eeveelutions are the ones I notice the most.

    Greninja. The anime played it up too much, it's way too much of a fan favorite, and I'm going to stop before I get to Ash-Greninja...

    Lucario, Charizard, the Eeveelutions, Dragonite, Greninja, Lugia, Gardevoir, Zoroark, Blaziken (even though it's one of my favourite Pokémon), Arcanine, Alolan Ninetales, Mew, and Mewtwo are all overused/overrated in my opinion.

    Pikachu, Charizard, and Greninja mostly. I guess they're sort of the mascots, but Nintendo has a habit of hyping up or showing certain Pokémon so much that it just makes me never want to use them. Blaziken is almost on that list since it got its mega before the other gen 3 starters.

    Charizard, mostly. Lucario has a close second though I don't really mind it as much.

    Although it's really telling when a Pokémon is so popular that it gets two mega evolutions. :v
