Top 3 most hated Pokemon games of all time

#3 – Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: The Gates of Infinity

Almost all Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games have been well received by gamers. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the edition known as Gates To Infinity.

Released in 2012 in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS, this game was downright boring and lacked any form of exciting gameplay. Additionally, any player who managed to fight to the end will have seen the “surprise” twist that occurs in the storyline long before it happens.


#2 – Pokemon Battle Revolution

Released in 2006 to be played on the Nintendo Wii in Japan, Pokemon Battle Revolution just didn’t sit well with fans. Especially considering it felt like such a bad attempt to remake the Pokemon Stadium game that was highly regarded and played by trainers on the Nintendo 64.

The only decent thing about this game was that some features lined up and could be connected to Gen IIII, Diamond and Pearl games.


#1 – Hey You, Pikachu

When it comes to downright awful Pokemon games, it just doesn’t get any worse than the spin-off – Hey You, Pikachu! The premise of the game was that a player had a pet Pikachu that they could interact with via voice commands.

Unfortunately, the voice commands never really seemed to work, or if they did, Pikachu certainly misheard them or just misbehaved. Players who have tried this game will only remember it with frustration.

To be fair, technology has come a long way since this game was released on the Nintendo 64 in 1998. Maybe if a version came out in the present day it would fare better.
