With a remake of Ruby and Sapphire on the horizon, everyone is chattering about the good ole days of third generation. There were many Pokémon introduced (135 to be exact) and not all of them were well received by the gaming community. Let’s face it, gamers always pick favorites and while Pokémon like Blaziken will soar to the top of most trainers teams there will always be Pokémon that are left sadly left behind for what other trainers think are better Pokémon.

It is a shame really because some of these Pokémon are truly underrated gems that no one dares to look at because they already have their top tier teams. Any real Pokémon trainer can tell you that tiers and stats don't mean everything, it depends on how you use your favorite Pokemon is what makes a truly great trainer.

Let's take a look back at the top ten most underrated Pokémon from a game that's finally getting the remake we've all been waiting for.

    This is a great list, although I probably would've put Ludicolo somewhere on here, maybe instead of Mightyena. I don't see a lot of Ludicolo's even though he has one of the best type combinations and pretty decent stats to boot.

    If it wasn't for the fact that I've seen so many Ludicolo's in competitive for third gen he would have been on this list. He was in OU until Black and White and he's a big fan favorite thanks to Coliseum's Mirror B.

    Never played a whole lot of pokemans but cacturne looks frickin creepy and that picture and sounds like a lot of fun.

    Yo Cacturne was hella good, used him whenver I could. Altaria carried my first playthrough of the game super hard. Good stuff.

    Always thought Mightyena was a badass, even tho fighting them was sorta free... at least they looked cool.

    I don't get it, I used Linoone and Tropius in every party I ever had in that game. Admittedly that was because Linoone was the best HM slave ever, especially since he picked up random great items all the time. And who doesn't want to fly into town riding a giant tree-dinosaur.

    And Walrein rounded out my team any time I used Blaziken, because he was the best Water-Ice in the game.

    I hated Whismer the first few play throughs of 3rd gen because I thought he looked stupid. Then I finally tried him and he instantly was stronger than my starter and took no prisoners.

    I like Relicanth a ton but I have always used Carrcosta or Omastar instead.
