While I have refrained from obscene language on this page, I still may have posted a Pokémon or two that you like. Needless to say, I don't care if I hurt your feelings, but I do respect your opinions anyway. So, NO. I will not remove <insert Pokémon> because it's your favorite, but I welcome you to yell at me all you want on the talk page.
Generation I, the Gen that started it all. Despite listing Pokemon here, I can't hate most of these guys too much. I grew up with them! But even from the start, for one reason or another, sometimes a Pokemon just rubs me the wrong way, and I don't like it.
|Pokémon||Original sprite||Current sprite||Why?||Outlook|
|Weedle||I don't really hate Weedle (Wurmple and Spinarak too) , I just hate how you had just started your journey, and as you arrive in Viridian Forest, he poisons you. Thanks for that.||Given I don't hate him that much to start, I can't gripe much. Beedrill is kinda cool, and once you, the player, get over Lv. 10 hes harmless.|
|Rattata||You're a beginning trainer and these things learned Quick Attack early, and enemy trainers loved to use it on the weak new trainer.||Unlike Weedle up there, these things never go away, and moreover, Raticate is even more annoying.|
|Pikachu||The mascot, and even the messiah for some kids. Shut up! It's garbage!||I'm not saying it isn't useful, it's fast, hits decently hard (with Light Ball that is), but, there's better choices.|
|Zubat||I just want to get to Cerulean City!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!! Every time I catch one in any game, I name it "Annoying Bat" for obvious reasons...||While Golbat carries the annoyance factor with it into bigger, harder caves, Crobat sort of makes up for it, he's sort of cool.|
|Abra||Oh, that looks cool, I should catch one! "ABRA used Teleport!" SON OF A!! I'll use Bite to make him flinch! "Wild ABRA fainted!" AAAAHHH!!||What I'm getting at is that its fast, and has pathetic defense, so, it either gets away, or it faints. This trait follows it all the way to Alakazam. Guess what, I don't like him either.|
|Farfetch'd||In Gen I, you have to trade for this awful thing. I want to like Farfetch'd, I really do. A duck smacking people with a stick? Hilarious! But its too useless...also, typing its name is annoying.||I will take him off this list when Nintendo takes my advise. After all, I actually created that page solely on the Farfetch'd idea alone!|
|Gastly||STOP BOTHERING ME!! IM TRYING TO SAVE MR. FUJI!!! That, and as the only Gen I Ghost-type, it's part Poison rendering it pretty useless.||Nintendo still throws him into dark places to annoy us, but at least these days they gave him some moves to attack with, and moreover the Physical/Special split did wonders for him.|
|Onix||He's big. He's cool. He's totally and utterly useless...even later in the game, Hikers carry them around thinking we'll be afraid of them.||Steelix. Not entirely sure why I cited him earlier though. He looks awesome, and hes an excellent single player physical wall. Other than that, just not usable.|
|Voltorb||High Speed means they get to blow up in your face before you get to attack. Low Attack means that they will do hardly any damage at all. Add to that they're inability to learn Electric-type attacks by level-up (until Gen III), and you've got one useless Pokémon.||NO. Electrode is the same thing, only bigger, dumber looking, and annoyingly faster.|
|Chansey||It's incredibly stupid looking for one, and at the time, it was insanely hard to get a hold of. Moreover, you'd think that because they are hard to find, they would be super useful. I hate walls...||It evolves into Blissey becoming the best, and obviously, most annoying special wall ever. Nintendo created this thing to annoy me, I swear.|
|Ditto||Copy any Pokémon and use their attacks! WOW! By the way, it doesnt copy stats, and if you didn't know, using Thunder on an Electric-type doesn't work too well.||In battle, it's still useless to this day, but, it is the ultimate Poké-pimp. Respect Ditto.|
The stunningly good sequel to the original games brought forth some new changes in both color, gameplay, mechanics, stats, locations, and of course, new Pokemon. As with Gen I, I remember Gen II quite fondly and don't truly hate all of the Pokemon on this list. But that doesn't mean I can't hold some animosity, right?
|Pokémon||Original sprite||Current sprite||Why?||Outlook|
|Lanturn||A disgrace to the Electric-type. Blatantly fraternizing with the enemy (Water-type). And what do we get out of this equation? A garbage Pokémon.||Volt Absorb means its one of the few to resist BoltBeam, and in turn, people actually use this thing online! Not me. Never. Still garbage.|
|Ampharos||It goes from being a hilarious and lovable sheep to this stupid looking thing. It doesn't even have a funny name.||I'm not to sure even Nintendo likes this thing. I don't remember even battling one owned by a rival trainer in Silver...|
|Marill||You know, I can't describe why I hate Marill, I just do. I want to punt one like a football. Could be all the hype of "Pikablu", and my natural hatred of Pikachu.||It gets worse for me. You see, the Marill family are all sorta tanks, and HATE tanks. Add Pure Power to the mix, and now people online use Azumarill. Jerks.|
|Hoppip||Most Flying-types that can't learn Fly are pointless. Add to that Hoppip's weak attack stats, and tons of weaknesses, just make it go away!||When it turns into Jumpluff, it becomes fast. That's really annoying given that all Grass-types ever do deal a status ailment, and then die because of all their weaknesses and poor defenses.|
|Aipom||People won't like this one, but I just hate Aipom. I think it's stupid, ugly, and in the anime (the one I don't watch), it's very annoying.||Gen IV gives us a new evolution! You can view it in my Gen IV hatred. I think you get my point.|
|Quagsire||Good type combo + bad stats + Electric-type trainer = I HATE QUAGSIRE. Wooper can go shove it too.||As of Gen IV, the only seriously useful Water/Ground Pokémon is Swampert. So, yes, I still hate Quagsire.|
|Wobbuffet||Not only is it stupid looking, but, thanks to Shadow Tag, if you encounter one in the wild, you've just lost a team member. During single play, that's really, REALLY annoying. But, online, it downright ticks me off.||The fact they threw MORE of them into the wild (notably in Ruin Valley) is really nice (sarcasm). I also like how they gave it a prevo....then banned it. Nice.|
|Shuckle||I hate tanks. Seems like Nintendo created him just to annoy me.||Honestly, I don't hate Shuckle so much as I hate tanks. That being said, thanks to some new moves like Power Trick, Shuckle can do some pretty cool things.|
|Blissey||Blissey is the definition of pain in the ass and will forever be a massive (both figuratively, and literally) blob of hell. Its mere presence is enough to cause some people to fall into deep depression just from the knowledge that their opponent refuses to fight. All Blissey does is waste your time, and ruin the fun. It will forever torment its opponent with apathy as it soaks up any Special based attack, and then just heals it all away. Forever.|| FOR-E-VER.|
|Smeargle||Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Sure, you can have the best move set in the world, but with those stats, lets see you do something with them.||It goes from ridiculous to hilarious when online. Sure, use Blast Burn on my Metagross. Ok then. Thanks for doing maybe 60HP damage, prepare for REAL pain now.|
After Gen II, I took a hiatus from Pokemon. When I came back in Gen III, I was older, wiser, and eager to see what I had been missing. The insane amount of changes brought forth with Gen III revolutionized the series and added new life. I'm glad I played FRLG first because I didn't find Hoenn or RSE to be very engaging. Hoenn in particular I really dislike. SO MUCH SURFING. The latter half of the game was probably supposed to feel like an adventure, but I found it to be boring. Yes, I feel the same way about Wind Waker.
However, Gen III brought some interesting new Pokemon to enjoy. However, unlike previous generations, there isn't nearly as much nostalgia here, AND I compare some of these strongly AGAINST my nostalgia, so the hate will flow...
|Pokémon||Original sprite||Current sprite||Why?||Outlook|
|Wurmple||Falls into the same category of Weedle up there. New trainer, get poisoned. You also don't know if you get which evo you want until it's too late.||Do the opening route Bugs ever become useful? Let's be honest, not really. But given Beautifly was one of the reasons I hated Gen III...|
|Beautifly||It's the second coming of Butterfree!! Nice job of being lazy Nintendo.||To date, in my opinion, its still the least original Pokémon of them all.|
|Slaking||Awesome stats, overused, annoying ability. In the anime, he seems pretty cool, but I don't have the patience in the games to deal with Truant.||He and Regigigas have parties together. No one else shows up, because every other party game involves taking a nap.|
|Nosepass||I hate tanks, he's incredibly stupid looking, and of course, he's owned by the first gym leader.||Gen IV gave him a new evo! You can see it in the next section. Oh dear..|
|Sableye||No weakness at all. Thats just downright annoying. At least his crappy stats let us kill him pretty easily anyway.||Gen IV gave us Spiritomb. Same concept, only useful. Sableye now watches from the sidelines.|
|Whiscash||The return of Quagsire. Only now, it has lots of HP, but still has crappy stats.||Gonna be hard to like something that gives earthquakes to Japan for fun.|
|Milotic||As an Electric-type trainer, this thing is really annoying. It's Sp. Def should be illigal, and on top of that, maxing Beauty is a pain the arse.||I dont hate Milotic as much as I hate fighting Milotic. Now that I battle a lot online, I see more of them. Great.|
|Dusclops||Another damn tank...and of course, it's a Ghost so every attack it uses is a status attack. Fun.||Another on the list that gets a Gen IV evo, which, again, can be seen below.|
|Luvdisc|| ARE THEY SERIOUS?!?!
Stupidest Pokémon ever.
|There's nothing more to say.|
|Regirock||Worst||Maybe, it's because they are tanks.|
|Regice||legendaries||Maybe, it's because they are stupid looking.|
|Registeel||ever.||Or maybe, it's because they are useless.|
Generation IV was interesting. It brought one of the best innovations to the series with the Physical/Special move split allowing previously useless Pokemon to finally find some love. It also brought some 3D effects, and gave us the excellent HGSS. On the flip side, Sinnoh just doesn't feel very alive to me, and the story just didn't work for me.
The Pokemon though, well, we got a ton of welcome new evolutions, and some good originals as well, but, you know the drill, not all of them receive my praise.
|Pokémon||Original sprite||Current sprite||Why?||Outlook|
|Infernape||First off, it's a monkey, and I hate monkeys. Second, its totally unoriginal. And third, its a totally unoriginal monkey.||Given it's the current Gen, and I hate it, there's not much to say. It's useful, but, I ain't using one.|
|Bidoof||It's not "the most powerful Pokémon ever". Deal with it.||Bibarel is a fantastic HM slave, but, that's about it.|
|Pachirisu||In this day and age, there's no room for crappy non-evolving Pokémon.||Some users won't let me hear the end of it. But I don't care. You can use it in contests, I don't care about them. I don't do them.|
|Gastrodon||Ok, this one may not be as bad as Quagsire or Whiscash, but it's still stupid.||Unlike the other 3 Water/Ground-types, Gastrodon is more special than physical. But, given the new Gen IV split, this is no longer useful. Oops.|
|Ambipom||They pretty much made Aipom even stupider. Also, can someone tell me why it has udders for hands?||A LOT of people like this thing, and I've yet to find out why. Technician can only get you so far; and moreover, it's no Scyther or Scizor. Guess it rolls back to contests or something.|
|Lopunny||Are you serious? A Pokémon based off of bunny girls? That's really disturbing..||Fast with decent defenses, it's a good annoyer, I guess, but, why would I like something that's annoying me?|
|Spiritomb||No weaknesses, and high defenses. Thanks Nintendo!||They've crippled it with no speed, at all, so, it actually takes some strategy to use one. It's also, arguably, one of the best Blissey counters, one of my most hated Pokémon ever. Thusly, I sometimes use Spiritomb myself.|
|Probopass||I'm pretty sure that's the absolute stupidest looking Pokémon of them all. Add the new Steel-type and I can thankfully score 4x damage to it and get it out of my face quickly.||Heck no. What is there to like about it?|
|Dusknoir||Ridiculous defenses, a ton of annoying moves it can use, over-used. Ugh.||Once it's done annoying you, it can use its great attack stat to bring the pain. I love Dusknoir.|
Oh Gen V. The first Gen I got to see revealed, played, and die. What is there to say other than....Gen V was disappointing. I didn't mind the clean slate of new Pokemon, and anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I really enjoyed B2W2, but other than that...the Gen didn't bring that much to the table. Only two games, one being a sequel to the other, and I'm in the minority that found the BW story to be rather pointless. However, it did set-up B2W2's story, which I really liked, and the music from Gen V is pretty good overall.
The Pokemon? Well, we've got 156 new Pokemon. Some good, some great, some bad, some horrible. Gen V brought some Pokemon that were instant favorites of mine, but on the flip side, there are some truly bizarre decisions by Game Freak this time around. The starters are possibly my least favorite of them all, each bearing some glaring errors. I don't hate Emboar, but why is it yet ANOTHER Fire/Fighting and why is its learnset so void and difficult? Samurott is another Pokemon that I love the design of, but its stats are genuinely baffling. It's based on a samurai, but has more Special Attack and otherwise mundane stats. What happened??? There's more too, but lets start with the one starter I didn't mention here...
|Pokémon||Original sprite||Current sprite||Why?|
|Serperior||Where-as the other two have a bad movepool and typing, and poor stats respectively, Serperior has all three! Again, a good design but a pathetically shallow movepool, a design that looks like it would love to be paired with Dragon, and speed it has no real attacking prowess to use. Game Freak put a lot of effort into the designs of the starters, and that shines through, they all stand out visually, but when it came to program them, someone was asleep at the keyboard. Snivy is so cool he is meme worthy, but Serperior is just failed expectations. It coulda been a contender!|
|Watchog||One thing I hate is early game status abusers. This forgettable, boring, nothing with its horrendously bland stats looks ridiculously stupid, looooves to use Hypnosis, and doesn't hesitate to use Super Fang, all the while showing up EVERYWHERE in Unova. Seriously, something that should be long forgotten after about mid-game is still on some late-game routes! Why??? Another minor complaint is that it doesn't even give two EVs making it extra useless for training.|
|Musharna||Munna and Musharna, in my faux-professional opinion, are some of the ugliest looking Pokemon of them all. Sure, some people might call them cute, but Munna looks like a demonic floating elephant crossed with a little girl's pillow, and those bug-eyes on Musharna are downright frightening, while the pink vomit coming out of its head is just absurd. It is insanely slow, but it is also reasonably powerful. Don't fret though, it's far more likely to put you to sleep. Joy! I will give it credit though, grabbing a Munna in Dreamyard with Synchronize and a good Nature really helped grab some Pokemon with the desired Nature, but that could be said about any Synchronize user. Munna was just right place, right time.|
|Roggenrola||Sturdy and Explosion. 'Nuff said.|
|Swoobat||Zubat is annoying because it bothers you every five steps, but it at least has the decency to evolve into a good Pokemon. Woobat also loves to bug you every five steps, but opts to not evolve into anything remotely useful. Woobat and Swoobat are amongst my most hated of Gen V. I find them annoying on both a wild and battle basis, as well as having fantastically useless stats, and being disastrously ugly. Yes, another Pokemon some people consider cute, but not me. Moreover, Swoobat has some of the most pathetic stats for a fully evolved Pokemon in the series. It's fast and....that's it. Don't think you can rest easy when around it because while it can't do direct damage, it's another Pokemon that loooves status.|
|Audino||Ooooh boy. *Rubs hands together* The Gen V version of Chansey and Blissey. I'll put it this way, Audino's purpose is to make the game easier. It's found everywhere, it gives a ton of experience, and its moves consist of healing everything. It has terrible stats, I think it looks stupid, and it doesn't actually serve a discernible purpose (other than to die for our benefit). Audino doesn't need to exist, and I wish it didn't. (U mad Umeko?)|
|Seismitoad||A more normal Pokemon for a change. As a fan of Magnemite, it's natural for me to dislike Water/Ground-types. It's a forbidden type combo, but rightfully so, I respect a Pokemon that does it right. Swampert is so far the only one that isn't terrible. Why is it that of all the Water/Ground-types, they all have nearly the same exact stats? High HP, middling everything else. Seriously, go check them all, I'll even link them for you. Quagsire, Whiscash, Gastrodon. See that? Even Swampert follows the trend, it's just buffed enough to actually work. Seismitoad is the same, but with the added annoyance of Poison Touch (Btw, what's the point of Poison Touch? We already have Poison Point!).|
|Darmanitan Zen Mode||Dear Game Freak, enough with the formes. If you're gonna have a Pokemon with stats that differ THIS MUCH and even give it AN EXTRA DAMN TYPE then seriously, SPLIT EVOLUTION. More to the point, It only works when its HP gets to half, so you have to have both Physical moves to get yourself to Zen Mode, and then Special attacks while IN Zen Mode. This is insanely pointless. I think having formes all over the place is dumb as it is, but this really defines the issue. Also, Zen Mode looks stupid, but you probably saw that coming.|
|Emolga||Emolga bothers me for a number of reasons, but don't worry, I don't think Emolga is ugly (though its name sure is). Emolga is Game Freak's attempt at making a novelty Pokémon that doesn't suck. And they failed. Emolga sucks. It's like a much worse version of Serperior, it's fast but can't do anything with it's speed. Unlike Serperior, it doesn't even get any defense to play with. However, being a bad Pokemon isn't the only thing that I dislike about Emolga. It's because its a flying squirrel, an animal so ridiculous that it deserves to be made into a quality Pokemon, not some novelty garbage.|
|Amoonguss||Fake items have been around since Gen I, and they're here to stay. They're annoying, but they add a little something extra and overall don't really bother me that much. However, the Pokemon that represent fake items have a nasty habit of being really stupid. Incidentally, if you flip Electrode's stats upside-down, you nearly get Amoonguss' stats. Also, Electrode has Static while Amoonguss has Effect Spore, allowing both of them to give you a crippling status! However, while Electrode is just a big ball with a face on it, Amoonguss is just...ugly. Also, Amoonguss has a stupid cry and a stupid name.|
|Jellicent||When I first saw Jellicent, I actually liked it a lot. I don't think the male version looks that bad (seriously, respect the 'stache). A Water/Ghost typing is cool and suits a translucent thing like a jelly fish. Then I saw it's stats and I felt like I'd been stabbed by a box jellyfish. Aside from being fairly terrible, they're nearly the exact same as Tentacruel! THE OTHER JELLYFISH BASED POKEMON. The only difference is that instead of speed, it gets HP. Hooray? Jellicent itself is meh, but the fact its stats are nearly identical to Tentacruel is just....cruel. Also, the female version looks creepy.|
|Alomomola||Hey, its the Luvdisc evolution that isn't a Luvdisc evolution! .......why? Why does Alomomola have to exist? If it were a Luvdisc evo, then we could at least know that Luvdisc's uselessness was not in vain (just), but instead we now have two atrociously bad heart shaped fish (ok, Alomomola isn't as bad as Luvdisc, but still). It looks stupid, it has no purpose, and it has a really stupid name.|
|Eelektross||Eelektross having a pointless extra E in its name is enough for me to dislike it, but what it comes down to is that it Levitates for no reason at all. It's hard to tell from it's sprite on the left, but in the game, it is clearly hanging out on the ground. But it does have Levitate, which means it has no weakness, which is really stupid because it doesn't even have great defenses to be a wall. If they wanted to make an electric eel, then just make a Water/Electric and be done with it.|
|Stunfisk||Why....who.....what is this supposed to be??? This really does check off just about the whole list of crap I hate in a Pokemon. It is unfathomably ugly, it has terrible(ish) stats (wasting its unique type combo), what stats it does have are geared towards walling (ugh...), it has Static, a stupid cry, a bafflingly popular fan following, uuhhhhh what else....ah, and it has a really dumb name. I admit, there's some good photoshop jokes of Stunfisk, but I'd gladly trade all of them for Stunfisk to never exist. This is my most hated Pokemon of Generation V, and one my most hated Pokemon in the entire series.|
|Mandibuzz||Mandibuzz bothers me on a few specific levels. First, its a defensive Pokemon, and we all know I hate them. Second, same type as Honchkrow, but opposite stats. Third, Vullaby and Mandibuzz are difficult to even SEE in White and White 2. Fourth, I don't like its name. And lastly, IT'S A VULTURE AND IT'S DEFENSIVE. Mandibuzz could have been awesome, a strong evil vulture, but they decided to go with an ugly defensive vulture. WHY?? Mandibuzz was apparently added late in game development, but they should have just left it out, retooled it, and brought it back next time around.|
Coming not very soon...
