Top 10 Most Underrated Generation One Pokémon

10 of 12

2. Vileplume

What would a list like this be without Vileplume? An unsettling little Pokémon based on the group of carrion flowers, which smell like rotting flesh. Vileplume wasn't as much unpopular for a while as much as it was unloved. Not a lot of people wanted to use Vileplume and again, with all sorts of Grass types out there now, people just see it falling short of what the other grass types have to offer.

However, what Vileplume does have over its more flowery contemporaries is its bulk, and with Effect Spore as its ability it makes it a force to be reckoned with. Combine that with moves like Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb and Sleep Powder, and Vileplume is able to wait out its competition for a little while.

Or, if you want to go full offensive, use the same Giga Drain and Sludge Bomb with an added Hidden Power Fire or Ground to pack a punch. There's other ways of playing with Vileplume thanks to its fairly diverse movepool. It's a fun little Pokémon that can take plenty of hits, and while it's not as beloved as others, this red eyed Pokémon deserves to be on any list.
