Weakest in existence?

W.T.

Donw with CIPHET!
In Generations I and II, Magikarp's Pokédex entry contained something about it being the "weakest in existence." In Generation III and the Battle Frontier (at least according to the official listing), Sunkern has the lowest base stats and is considered the weakest.

Who holds this title in Generation IV?

Still Sunkern I believe. I think Caterpie, Weedle, and Wurmple are also somewhere in that area.

I would say Pichu because of how much it stunk in Melee, but I'm not trying to be a complete idiot. The truth is that I'm not sure, I think Sunkern still holds the title.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Sunflora in the top 5 highest for Special Attack?

Yea, I know but it's all worth while once you get a Sun Stone.

Well I need it for the sake of tentacruel....
for the sake of stats if hit by a super effective move Shedinja take the most damage in the entire game.

Sunkern might have a lower stat total than Magikarp but in a fight it would definitely win. The only reason why Magikarp has a higher total is because of its Speed (50 higher) and Defense (25 higher). Magikarp can't do much to Sunkern's drain moves no matter how weak it is.

Charmander. Magcargo. Moltres. Flareon. Ninetails. Monferno. Combusken. Groudon. Them and their ilk are the weakest.

LAWLZ Groudon the weakest.

Proven. With Science! As if that silly lumbering brute of fire and rock can withstand the sheer cold of an icy blizzard.

That doesn't make it the weakest. Not even close.

Oh, you don't see it yet. But you will, my friend. In due time... in due time... *Stalks off in a very evil-ish manner.*

But, in any case, I think in the Platinum dex it says that Magikarp are actually the strongest pokemon, able to withstand waters so polluted that even Muk shy away from it. But, alas, poor Sunkern is left to be flamed and hated because of its inability to fight. :(

I think magikarp is the weakest, as it only learns three weak moves.

But it learns flail. At 1% hp, flail can deal 200 base damage. Eheheheh.

I think it's funny that Sunkern's BST is only 180. There are Pokemon with a higher individual stat than Sunkern has total. Like Shuckle's Defense, or Blissey's HP.

But if you meant the weakest fourth gen Pokemon, probably Kricketot. It learns only a few attacks and no TMs.

No, no. In actuality ice-types are the strongest. But you're close! =D

o.o Really? Wow, that's uhm.. pretty nifty if you can get yourself into that position. Maybe with focus sash?
