No matter how old we get, Pokémon cards will still inspire many valuable debates that are hard to settle on and off the playground. Even though the game is more than 20 years old—with the first cards having dropped in 1996—several burning questions haunt new and veteran players alike such as, What are the most underrated cards in the game?

With more than 800 Pokémon in existence, everyone’s personal deck probably contains multiple cards that each player considers to be underrated (just check out this underrated Pokémon cards Twitter thread to see what we mean.)

But we did our research, we tried our best and we think we found some of the most underrated cards guaranteed to evolve your deck.
