Ranking the Pokemon: #133- Oddish

You really only have to look at Oddish to understand why it's this low on the list. Even if it wasn't completely useless already, its appearance (a cross between a Smurf and a troll) simply doesn't get the job done. It does learn Flash and Cut, though, so as an HM slave it's passable, but it's also really annoying, as all Grass types are. I also always kind of hated this entire line of evolutions, possibly because I played Blue growing up and didn't have any opportunities to pick up Oddish, short of trading. Fortunately I traded a Rattata or something equally pathetic to get this oddball, and I can tell you it was not worth it.

Grade: D
