Team Rocket’s Least Useful Pokémon, Ranked

Though this ugly grass-type Pokémon was fairly weak overall, it battled a few times with Team Rocket and offered a good bit of support. Carnivine also did some contests with Jessie, so in both aspects, the Pokémon wasn’t too shabby, but it still wasn’t considered one of their best, either.

The “bug catcher” Pokémon has decently unique abilities when it comes to battling, like Levitate, which helps it avoid damaging ground-type attacks. As far as the venus fly trap-inspired Pokémon’s stats go, it has pretty strong HP, but its attack points are by far its strongest asset.

9 Growlithe

This cute little Pokémon was James’ childhood best friend, which makes its presence on Team Rocket all the more special. However, Growlithe wasn’t particularly helpful in the grand scheme of things because it never battled and wasn’t on the show long.

This puppy-inspired Pokémon is commonly known for using battle abilities like Intimidate and Flash Fire, with the hidden ability of Justified, which are typically strong moves against grass, bug, steel, and ice types. The fire-type Pokémon has decent HP, but its attack points are slightly stronger overall. If Growlithe would have stuck around longer, it may have made a bigger impact when it evolved in an Arcanine.

8 Woobat

Definitely one of the least helpful Pokémon, Woobat failed to ever develop in character or evolve. Overall, it was pretty one-dimensional and wasn’t a strong asset to the team in terms of battling.

This psychic and flying dual-type Pokémon does have pretty unique abilities, though, such as Unaware and Klutz, with its hidden ability being Simple, even though it is quite weak and vulnerable to rock, ghost, dark, electric, and ice moves. The “bat pokemon” remains pretty average overall in terms of stats, with its HP only being slightly higher than its attack and defense abilities.

7 Amoonguss

Surprisingly enough, Amoonguss is actually a decently powerful Pokémon. However, the “mushroom Pokémon” wasn’t a huge fan of James, which caused issues in the team dynamic. If it had a better bond with its trainer, Amoongus would likely have been much more impactful.

The grass and poison dual-type commonly battles with its unique abilities of Effect Spore with an incredibly useful hidden ability of Regenerator, which lets it heal whenever it switches out of battle. Its HP remains pretty high with decent attack stats trailing shortly behind.

6 Lickitung

A Pokémon too weak to be helpful, Lickitung’s contributions were definitely sporadic for Team Rocket. In a nutshell, the normal-type Pokémon just followed Team Rocket around and ended up being traded away later without participating in any important events or battles.

The “licking pokemon” has battle abilities of Own Tempo and Oblivious, with Cloud Nine being its hidden ability. When it comes to hit points, its stats are pretty good with a decent defense level, with its attack skills being its weakest link. If Team Rocket would have let Lickitung stick around a bit longer, it may have been able to protect them from the likes of Pikachu and the other Pokémon they frequently have run-ins with.

5 Gyarados

Though the Pokémon started off as a Magikarp, it evolved into a very powerful Gyarados later on, which would have been great for Team Rocket. Unfortunately for them, Gyarados turned on Team Rocket due to the mistreatment it received prior to evolving, making it one of the most devastating losses for the duo.

The water and flying dual-type mainly uses the Intimidate ability, and a hidden ability of Moxy. This Pokémon, inspired by mythology, brings incredibly high attack stats to the table, with its HP also being respectable. With Gyarados being such an incredibly strong Pokémon, there’s no doubt that Team Rocket would have had a leg up on Ash and the gang if they didn’t treat it so badly.

4 Frillish

Though Frillish has an overall decent move set, it was constantly misused and therefore couldn’t fairly contribute to the team. The “floating Pokémon” was eventually traded to the boss at the end of the region series, so it just wasn’t destined to be.

The water and ghost dual-type uses abilities like Water Absorb and Cursed Body in battle, and sometimes even its hidden ability, Damp. Its battle stats are pretty low overall, so it seems the Pokémon wouldn’t have contributed much anyway until it evolved into the much stronger Jellicent.

3 Mawile

Though Pumpkaboo was a good asset to Team Rocket, Jessie traded it for a Mawile so it could Mega Evolve. However, when Jessie saw Pumpkaboo evolve immediately after trading, she traded Mawile back to have Gorgeist. Needless to say, Mawile didn’t provide too much significance to Team Rocket.

However, the unique steel and fairy dual-type does have pretty high attack and defense stats it could have contributed to the team. The “deceiver Pokémon” also has pretty cool abilities like Hyper Cutter and Intimidate, with Sheer Force being its hidden ability, making for a pretty uniquely talented Pokémon that could have been pretty helpful to Team Rocket if it stuck around.

2 Shellder

When Jessie caught Shellder, it almost immediately latched onto Slowpoke when it was thrown into battle. The Slowpoke quickly evolved into Slowbro, so Shellder obviously wasn’t used hardly at all. If it would have stuck around a bit longer, though, it would have evolved into Cloyster, one of the Pokémon with the highest defense stat in the franchise.

Despite its lack of experience on Team Rocket, the water type Pokémon normally uses abilities like Shell Armor and Skill Link in battle, with the occasional use of its hidden ability of Overcoat. Its battle stats are also pretty inconsistent, with its great defense skills, decent attack points, yet pretty low HP, so it’s pretty clear that Shelder wouldn’t have been too much of a help even if it stayed with Team Rocket a little longer.

1 Hoppip

Far from being one of Team Rocket’s most powerful Pokémon, Hoppip was originally sold to James, but it was disguised as a Chimecho. One James discovered the Pokémon was in fact a Hoppip after all, it just hopped away, never to be seen again, proving to be Team Rocket’s least helpful Pokémon in history.

The grass and flying dual-type Pokémon typically uses abilities like Chlorophyll and Leaf Guard in battle, as well as its hidden ability, Infiltrator. However, despite its unique moves, the Pokémon remains quite weak and vulnerable to quite a few Pokémon types, including flying, ice, rock, fire, and poison. The “cottonweed Pokémon” also has very low battle stats across the board, so it’s evident that Hoppip wouldn’t have been much of a help anyway.
