There are a handful of Pokémon that are barely used by trainers, while some are underrepresented in the media and in the Pokémon community.

This is hardly a surprise, as there are over 900 Pokémon in the franchise, but it's a shame because some of them have so much potential

But just because a Pokémon is underrated doesn't mean it isn't loved or recognized.  There may be other people out there who use these Pokémon on their teams for various reasons.

10. Latios and Latias

Of all the legendary Pokémon to have existed, Latios and Latias should be the least underestimated in the group.  Despite being rare, they are not as hyped compared to other stalwarts in the sport.

9. Houndoom

Why is this Zoho dog not appreciated by fans?  It has really good special attack and defense stats and can learn tricks outside of the dark and fire type sets like Thunder Fang, Smaug and Dream Eater.

8. Magikarp

Everyone loves Gyarados but forgets the Pokémon it once was: the humble Magikarp.  So much so that Nintendo had to write a song about it.  You might think this is weak but there is more to it than meets the eye.

6. Exploud

Exploded is a very useful Pokémon if you get tired of dealing with sound-based moves like Sleep thanks to its 'Soundproof' ability.  And thanks to its hidden ability 'Scrappy', this Pokémon can't be intimidated in later games.
