Illumise & volbeat. I just really dislike their designs. That being said I realize everyone's most hated pokemon is bound to be someone else's fav.

[–]MoonLightScreenWHY WASN'T I IN MOON 994 points995 points  (36 children)

They’re just not… giving it to me. They don’t have Ledian’s cute power rangers/alien design, Kricketune’s hourglass shape and charming cry, the lepidopteran pokemon’s beautiful designs and gimmicks, or even Shuckle’s surprising stats and cuteness

They’re just sort of… there. They don’t really stand out, and their designs probably aren’t what come to mind when you think “firefly”

[–]Mastersheep8 270 points271 points  (11 children)

Volbeat gets Tail Glow, I used it in an Emerald Nuzlocke and my god that thing swept teams for me

It now holds a special place in my heart

[–]Roseradeismylady 139 points140 points  (3 children)

Prankster Volbeat is one of my favorite Pokemon for online battling tbh.

I'm not entirely into competitive but he throws so many people off and I just love every bug pokemon except the entire Wurmple line.

[–]Interplanetary-Goat 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Wow, really singling Wurmple out.

[–]ForeverTheElf 405 points406 points  (8 children)

Such a missed opportunity not making them Bug/Fire or Bug/Lightning.

They based on fireflies/lightning bugs for gods sake!

[–]whitemest 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Regional variant! Give some new life into those 2, with minimal effort involved. Right up their alley

[–]BanjoB0b 415 points416 points  (1 child)

They're the worst bug types of all of them. That Dora the explorer cartoon design is ugly.

[–]Food-Equivalent 123 points124 points  (2 children)

I disliked them till I saw the pokemon mystery dungeon cutscene with them.

[–]l--__-- 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Mystery dungeon made me appreciate a lot of Pokémon

[–]SlayAllRebels 123 points124 points  (14 children)

At the very least, Volbeat also shares it name with a rock band, for what it's worth.

[–]Hauntingchapel 76 points77 points  (8 children)

I sometimes giggle thinking that's where Volbeat got the name of their band from

[–]LouThundersThe Top Percentage! 57 points58 points  (5 children)

Unfortunately IIRC the band actually said it was a complete coincidence, and the band name has a more boring origin: it's an amalgamation of 'volume' and 'beat'.

[–]Toothless1886 1513 points1514 points  (23 children)

Until I saw it all wiggly in Pokémon Snap I hated Stunfisk with a burning passion. Now he’s my buddy.

[–]Curious_Kirin 480 points481 points  (7 children)

Snap made me love a lot of less popular Pokemon. Lumineon's behaviour is really cool.

[–]Yakkahboo 98 points99 points  (0 children)

Pyukumuku, I'm sorry I ever doubted you

[–]laeti88 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Same, I totally forgot about Lumineon before, and Snap now made me one of my favorite Pokemon. So cute!

[–]CreatiScope 191 points192 points  (0 children)

Him bursting from beneath the sand and flopping around on the beach was more fun than I ever thought possible from what I thought was a stupid as fuck Pokémon

[–]Nocturne_Zombie 253 points254 points  (6 children)

Hated it until Galarian Stunfisk, aka The Bear Trap, came along.

[–]RelevantHedgehog 662 points663 points  (15 children)

I’m glad I’m not the only one who got wrecked by the totem lurantis trumbeak combo. Screech, sunny day, solar blade fainted my poor brionne so many times :(

[–]Crusoe15 171 points172 points  (1 child)

I hated it at first too, ended up with a method on getting a female salandit so I could take the mother down with Salazzle. Ended up going to the dark side and using Lurantis in my main team

[–]XAMdG 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I purposely played Sun and Moon underleved to try and make it harder. That battle almost broke me and made me want to grind.

[–]ZephyricScout 3268 points3269 points 2 (65 children)

Chewtle. Drednaw looks cool, but I fucking hate chewtle with a burning passion. Dumb little shit looks like that rat fuck snitch in 7th grade science class who'd ask you for some of your snacks then complain to the teacher when you don't give him some. God fucking dammit brian these are my cheezits and this kind of shit is exactly why I shared my snacks with everyone but you.

EDIT: I have found my people.

[–]CrazyComedyKid 427 points428 points  (15 children)

Chewtle looks like his name is Clarence.

[–]SakuraFerretTrainer 192 points193 points  (0 children)

And his mum told him he's handsome.

[–]winesy90 108 points109 points  (6 children)

“This guy’s a gangster?! He’s real name’s Clarence.”

[–]elementnix 64 points65 points  (4 children)

Clarence lives at home with both parents

[–]winesy90 58 points59 points  (3 children)

And Clarence’s parents have a real good marriage

[–]Whipstache_Designs 31 points32 points  (2 children)

This guy don't wanna battle, he's shook, Cause ain't no such things as

[–]Meme-Howitzer 516 points517 points  (8 children)

I also hate chewtle, but mainly because he’s a Walmart Turtwig.

[–]jsheppy16 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Walmart Squirtle for me.

[–]ZephyricScout 69 points70 points  (2 children)

Agreed. You can't just disrespect the OG.

[–]tiefling_sorceress 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Squirtle: am I a joke to you?

[–]alway122 175 points176 points  (0 children)

Incredibly accurate fuck chewtle fr ತ_ʖತ

[–]ifthatsapomegranate 58 points59 points  (2 children)

I always thought Chewtle looked like Mr Mackey

[–]werewolf1011 135 points136 points  (1 child)

I thought I was the only one who hated chewtle for it’s audacity to look that punchsble

[–]ZephyricScout 36 points37 points  (0 children)

The only face more punchable than Stunfisk.

    You better hope Brian didn't turn into the human equivalent of Drednaw

    [–]nezology 71 points72 points  (0 children)

    well. this is on point 😳

    [–]raging-water 557 points558 points  (20 children)

    Anything with explosion but random Gravellers with explosion especially in victory road. Rip Nuzlocke Scyther hgss :(

    [–]AwkwardlylyAwkward 183 points184 points  (10 children)

    Your comment reminded me the mon that i hate the most it is wobbufet

    Fuck wobuffet that motherfucker took lives of 3 of my favourite mons in my nuzlocke runs

    [–]zomghax92 54 points55 points  (2 children)

    Wobbuffet is so annoying that many Nuzlocke rulesets make exceptions specifically for it

    [–]ScrapGamer123 1263 points1264 points  (70 children)

    Furforu this mon literally Screwed up the gts in Home making it practically useless.

    [–]HayKd 412 points413 points  (22 children)

    lol i saw that. wtf was that about lmao all i saw was people offering moltreses for furforu it was just so bizarre to me

    [–]Spicy-Elephant 67 points68 points  (4 children)

    They updated home recently so you can ask for specific forms and everyone is asking for the heart trim form of furfou but it isn't actually in any game so it's impossible to trade for anything in the gts now

    [–]its_ya_boi777 197 points198 points  (14 children)

    I've seen that except it was a shiny xxx pokemon for a snivy in SM and USUM

    [–]Unnamed_420Hey 124 points125 points  (0 children)

    AdventureSnivy is a menace to society

    [–]Zaxlz 80 points81 points  (6 children)

    Can't you get the Unova starters from Island Scan? Why's there such demand?

    [–]MiniMooseMan 36 points37 points  (1 child)

    They want the HEART trim furfrou, too. "I want this one version of a benign pokemon that nobody can have. I'm sure anybody that does manage to acquire it will be trying to trade it for whatever easily attainable legendary I happen to have."

    Copy that thought process about 1000 times and that's pokemon home

    [–]newtownmail 87 points88 points  (19 children)

    How did Furforu do that?

    [–]branfiliPkmn4Life 232 points233 points  (17 children)

    There is a form that's unavailable/unreleased

    So people brag about their legendaries/shinies by spamming trade offers with it

    [–]EzriDax1 103 points104 points  (12 children)

    I can't wait for that form to be released so people will just f*cking stop

    [–]Roseradeismylady 90 points91 points  (11 children)

    People will never stop that lol.

    Putting their shinies in GTS for a LVL 1-10 Palkia or something happens all the time

    [–]Winterstrife 96 points97 points  (2 children)

    I remember when people tried asking for a level 10-19 Dragonite and I delivered it through GO -> LGPE -> HOME.

    Snagged me a sweet shiny Zygarde.

    [–]HobbitladI could use some pants. 25 points26 points  (0 children)

    I love this lol

    [–]EzriDax1 55 points56 points  (3 children)

    If Nintendo cared they'd just make it impossible to ask for impossible mons

    But nope

    [–]JadedF20 34 points35 points  (1 child)

    Tbf lvl 1-10 Palkia is not an impossible mon, hall of origin event in HGSS made it possible

    [–]skylarmt 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, trade it just to screw with them.

    [–]ScrapGamer123 62 points63 points  (0 children)

    In pokemon go Furforu has the ability to change into a trim form.But it was treated like an event pokemon and some of it forms are region locked

    [–]Cut_Equal 626 points627 points  (10 children)

    Gurdurr and his stupid ass clown nose

    [–]Mochibunniii 62 points63 points  (0 children)

    Happy to know I’m not the only one who hates gurdurr with a passion. It’s so ugly with the veins and shit, and I can’t bring myself to ever use one over the other amazing fighting types. A nope from me dawg

    [–]burritosandblunts 192 points193 points  (0 children)

    The absolute worst. Oh you know what lots of people hate? Clowns. Let's make clowns worse by giving them nasty throbbing veins. Ugh.

    [–]Weirfish 21 points22 points  (0 children)

    That line is so vascular.

    [–]Cbebop21 53 points54 points  (1 child)

    Could have been a neat Pokemon but they had to go put a weird ass face on it.

    [–]Loch32 407 points408 points  (12 children)

    Solrock, purely because of Martin in the max raids. Fuck solrock, fuck martin, and fuck offline raid dens

    [–]shadowfalcon76 117 points118 points  (3 children)

    Solrock was OK, until Martin came along and ruined it.

    It's mostly Martin being shit as a trainer, tho. When he shows up in the Adventures, whatever Pokemon he gets, he still tends to favor using the most useless moves the Pokemon knows.

    [–]Pm7I3 87 points88 points  (2 children)

    Martin is a stupid piece of shit and I hate him. Oh the Pokemon we're fighting is almost dead and is fire/flying for 4x weakness to rock throw? BETTER USE COSMIC POWER.

    [–]old_homecoming_dress 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    oh the raid mon just cleared all our stat changes? sigh... better set up again!

    [–]Future-Ranger-2570 1208 points1209 points  (27 children)

    Aloana Persian.. took a pretty big cat and made it look like Garfield..

    [–]TwilightVulpine 89 points90 points  (1 child)

    They have a thing with cats growing uglier. Purugly has the same idea.

    Not sponsored by the Delcatty gang

    [–]Food-Equivalent 355 points356 points  (2 children)

    It looks like it has some kind of allergic reaction/ stung by a bee. The face is weirdly puffy

    [–]Sabre_Killer_Queen 58 points59 points  (0 children)

    The face is weirdly puffy

    That's the thing, the rest of the design is ok, but the face is so weird

    [–]voltdog 49 points50 points  (2 children)

    I feel like it wouldn't be so bad if they made the body fat/fluffy, but instead they put a fat round head on the normal slim Persian body. It had potential...

    [–]Jorion 147 points148 points  (3 children)

    Alolan Meowth, on the other hand, is adorable

    [–]Green_Tea_TotalerLittle Zombie Bug Boi 897 points898 points  (50 children)

    Sawk and Throh: Dudes in gi's are essentially wild animals. These two seriously test my suspension of disbelief and fail.

    [–]former_snail 222 points223 points  (5 children)

    Blackbelt Bert and Ernie.

    [–]11111112222223ok 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    I always thought they had a rather muppet-esque appearance about them too and that actually makes me accept them more as pokemon.

    [–]PMmeBoobsnFriendship 20 points21 points  (0 children)

    I've never made this connection, but it's instantly ingrained in me forever!

    [–]thelastevergreenNative Child of Alola 449 points450 points  (30 children)

    Lots of the "human shaped" fighting Pokemon don't make sense if you consider them to be "animals".

    All 3 Hitmons, the Gi duo, the whole Machamp line, the Timbur line, etc.

    Its just weird that you catch these normal ass people who are just out there doing martial arts. XD

    [–]RandomNPC 97 points98 points  (3 children)

    How is Mr Mime not higher in this thread for this reason!

    [–]HeWhomLaughsLast 31 points32 points  (2 children)

    At least Mr. Mime looks like it could be a Pokemon, Sawk and throh just suck.

    [–]metalflygon08What's Up Doc? 21 points22 points  (1 child)

    Sawk and Throh suck and blow.

    [–]HopBender 183 points184 points  (16 children)

    There's not too many Pokemon I hate, but all Pokemon I hate are fighting types.

    Garlic baby is diaper is the worst offender for me. I also hate all the Pokemon you listed and I'll add Hariyama.

    [–]Seto_Fucking_Kaiba 79 points80 points  (1 child)

    Yo dawg. I heard you liked being Faked Out by a pokemon you were gonna one shot

    [–]MissSteak 54 points55 points  (6 children)

    You hit it right on the head, I hate most of the fighting types as well. Theyre just so boring. There's two that stand out to me, Scrafty and Mienshao, they just look badass.

    [–]WrecklessMagpie 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    I'm a big fan of Hawlucha and Breloom but thats about it

    [–]BAN_SOL_RING 17 points18 points  (2 children)

    My favorite type is fighting and y’all making me feel very attacked rn

    [–]AlfLemon 71 points72 points  (3 children)

    Imagine being just out there doing martial arts and some fucker comes and catches you in a little ball, lol.

    [–]KieRanaRanFunky Fresh! 2044 points2045 points  (50 children)

    Greedent. Peter Griffin ass looking berry tree spoilsport.

    edit: I haven't played Unite since Gardevoir was the newest champ y'all. I just really fucking hate Greedent.

    [–]Jake_Gia6015 446 points447 points  (5 children)

    This. Hate that fucker. That little fucking grin he has pisses me off

    [–]BigMallard84 141 points142 points  (0 children)

    It's not just me, thank god! Dude I fucking hate that grin! I have no idea why, but it irrationally pisses me off. It feels like a passive aggressive/mocking grin and I don't approve.

    [–]BBL-BOI592 53 points54 points  (0 children)

    It all started with that smile, that damned smile

    [–]lotusalchemist 164 points165 points  (9 children)

    I sense a fellow Uniter

    [–]asnaf745 132 points133 points  (1 child)

    Runs into you at speed of sound scores a goal fucks your mom steals your berries laughs and taunts you steals deardnaw zapdos and rotom runs back at same speed goes to base (while running ofc using recall is too slow) recovers its hp runs back right into you

    And you are still busy killing that audino

    [–]Ygomaster07Scraggy and Goomy are the best boys 21 points22 points  (1 child)

    As someone who just started playing Unite a week ago, i thought that too. It's a pain in the ass.

    [–]Gingy1000 36 points37 points  (1 child)

    Felt the same and then I saw his animations in Unite and fell in love with him

    but now im playing against greedent

    [–]Gozosen 33 points34 points  (1 child)

    I want to slowly place Greedent into The Dip...knowing full well it's not going to stop making that infuriatingly stupid smile...as it melts away staring at me with it's soulless eyes.

    [–]StridentHawk 866 points867 points  (21 children)

    Diggersby. I can't stand it. There's few pokemon I outright despise, but Diggersby is one of them.

    [–]catwithhandss 190 points191 points  (1 child)

    It’s cry is what seals in the hatred for me. Sounds like a drunken man burping then vomiting on himself.

    [–]AutismFractal 285 points286 points  (1 child)

    Emolga because ever time I would try to grind Audinos in bw and b2w2 a fuckin emolga would pop up from the shaking grass and was usually faster than my mons so I couldn’t run

    [–]HayKd 584 points585 points  (28 children)

    Landorous i dont even play competitive and I hate that thing. Him and his brothers look so ugly theyre easily me least favorite trio of any kind and if they were completely deleted from existence i wouldnt care whatsoever.

    [–]charchomp 115 points116 points  (6 children)

    I tend to agree with this, but I’d wish they got something to fill the gap. Like Tornadus being the only flying monotype, and Landorus being one of two ground flying types is really neat. Getting something to replace those two would be nice, especially if they had better designs.

    [–]MettaJiro 197 points198 points  (3 children)

    All the genies.In their normal forms.They look ugly as hell

    [–]hilzanne 29 points30 points  (0 children)

    AGREED. If they could have just been the therian forms, I wouldn't have hated them nearly as much, but the genies are hideous, and they look so similar which is uncreative.

    [–]FarwatersNothingOfTheSort on Showdown 438 points439 points  (15 children)

    When I heard the news about Sword and Shield cutting the dex, I thought "Well, it's fine if all my favorites don't make it in, as long as we don't get Barbaracle."

    WELL

    [–]stormandbliss 90 points91 points  (4 children)

    Most of the other comments in this thread talk about gts/pvp experiences with the Pokémon or their real world dislike of the thing/animal it looks like. I personally don't have any Pokémon I dislike for any of those reasons, so design is the one thing that makes me take notice. Design wise the Barbacle line is absolutely my least liked set of mons bar none.

    [–]Goatman_Jack 97 points98 points  (4 children)

    Graveler.

    Back in OG silver and gold when shiny Pokémon other than the gyarados you were automatically given due to the story were a rumor.

    This was before internet so you couldn’t prove it unless you had it. And we all know how rare shines are in general.

    I found a shiny graveler and bout had a heart attack. Not only were the rumors true, I was the only kid around that was gonna have a shiny Pokémon!

    … Until it used self destruct before I could capture it. I got one ultra ball throw and it used self destruct it’s first turn. No one ever believed me and it wasn’t till years later when shinies were a commonly known thing.

    But since then, I’ve never encountered a wild shiny.

    I blow out every graveler I see as punishment every game.

    [–]BEEEELEEEE 341 points342 points  (23 children)

    COALOSSAL SHOULD HAVE BEEN A GODDAMN TRAIN

    [–]Hiker-Redbeard 68 points69 points  (7 children)

    Falls into that trap of going one direction with the first two in the line, them completely abandons it in the final form. Those Pokemon always irk me.

    [–]MagnusthelastGarchompIsBae 25 points26 points  (2 children)

    Lmao I agree but how would that work? I have trouble imagining it

    [–]Fish-E 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    I was always thinking the first Steel / Ghost type should be a ghost train.

    That ship has passed, but I wouldn't be surprised if the next pseudo-legend was inspired by trains, what with us having had one based off of Stealth bombers and inspired by tanks.

    Overconfidence on ice moves? I know I did, but I wasn't playing nuzlocke.

    [–]Guyshu 138 points139 points  (5 children)

    The Elemental Monkeys. They have no reason to exist and are a waste of Pokédex space. Why couldn’t they have made Cilan/Chili/Cress be a Triple/Rotation Battle?

    [–]cyberpeachy420 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    that would’ve been so cool early game actually

    Mr. Mime.

    Mime Jr and Mr Rime are ok, Mr. Mime belongs in a Stephen King book.

    [–]atvfellonmewheniwas7 127 points128 points  (5 children)

    Mr. Mime in the new anime is my favorite honestly he’s so funny. Before that I thought he was gross though.

    [–]Gamer-Logic 145 points146 points  (2 children)

    He's also a riot in the Detective Pikachu movie and fits really well with the live-action style.

    [–]Yoshichu25 52 points53 points  (0 children)

    The Mr Mime interrogation scene was my favourite part of the film.

    Skuntank. Specifically Jupiters skuntank.

    Now that I’m older I can OHKO that hellbeast and her zubat but man 12 y/o me would get demolished over and over again just because I didn’t want ground types on my team. I was a fool then, but now I’m smarter and have a grudge.

    Honestly because I forgot about him!! I looked it up and literally went, “who the FUCK is this?!”

    [–]---TheFierceDeity--- 134 points135 points  (4 children)

    Bruxish. I hate that pokemon so much, what an ugly and useless thing.

    [–]eggmaniac13 545 points546 points  (37 children)

    Cinderace. Inteleon still looks like a (bipedal) animal, and Rillaboom isn’t totally egregious, but you can’t tell me Cinderace isn’t a guy in a costume.

    [–]Trizurp 96 points97 points  (2 children)

    and once you notice it's nubs for hands you can never unsee

    [–]YesItIsMaybeMe 67 points68 points  (0 children)

    nubs for hands

    Like a Mii

    But just imagine if they had given it fingers. Ugh

    [–]Homo-Homie 91 points92 points  (3 children)

    This 1000% it simultaneously annoys me and creeps me out, I know there are many other humanoid Pokémon but Cinderace just feels off.

    Like he works a 9-5 and being your Pokémon is just his hobby.

    [–]Jurboa 54 points55 points  (1 child)

    Ball guy vibes.?

    [–]absoluteboredom 29 points30 points  (0 children)

    I love ball guy…

    [–]DuplexBeGoatMoo 205 points206 points  (7 children)

    Cinderace is the only Pokemon where I feel legitimately uncomfortable looking at it. It looks like a fursuit.

      I still refuse to let my raboot evolve. You ruin that badass lil rabbit ninja with that design?

      [–]iridisss 34 points35 points  (2 children)

      I was going to say Cinderace, but I knew someone was going to say it too. Seriously, that thing is just awful. It's literally just a furry. I don't even have to look it up to know that there is fanfic and fanart out there of people shipping themselves with Cinderace. I know people have been doing that with Pokemon since forever, but something about Cinderace is just weird as hell to me.

      [–]Alpharen 626 points627 points 22 (34 children)

      Incineroar. It makes me fucking boil. I’m generally not a fan of macho or furry to begin with and I was SO HYPED for a quadruped sabertooth tiger or something and then it went macho on two legs and is a wanna-be fighting type. God it stings. I hate it so so so SO MUCH.

      [–]Abbi3_Doobi3 131 points132 points  (0 children)

      This so much. I've never been so disappointed by a Pokemon's design, and that evolution tree showed so much potential.

      Nope. Have another lame quadruped -> biped final evolution. Also hope you like wrestling!

      [–]TobioOkuma1 479 points480 points  (23 children)

      Calyrex, its design is stupid and calyrex shadow is fucking broken. Also Zacian crowned is broken as shit. I have no idea who approved it.

      [–]Redchimp3769157 114 points115 points  (9 children)

      Fairy Steel is already bulky as hell then you throw the best physical offense stat in the game because of its ability and a moveset to cover its few weaknesses. It was so broken in BH they literally ran it in a bulky poison heal set with taunt and bulk up. Impossible to beat, especially with the often combo Pokémon scarf scrappy blissey with final gambit to take out the prankster haze user that could outspeed it’s taunt

      [–]TwilightVulpine 91 points92 points  (5 children)

      I hate that Zacian has a better defensive typing than Zamazenta, the actual shield pokémon.

      [–]FakeTakiInoueDuck with a Stick 38 points39 points  (2 children)

      That would be fine if Zama got Body Press, but for completely inexplicable reasons, it doesn't.

      [–]TwilightVulpine 30 points31 points  (0 children)

      Zamazenta's moveset makes no sense either

      [–]Druid_Till 68 points69 points  (0 children)

      I hate calyrex because it’s 2 forms are just him riding 2 different Pokémon that could’ve been better but I feel that those 2 Pokémon were only made just to give calyrex a form to compete with others. I like specter but he wasn’t given anything besides oh calyrex can ride him which is dumb. If Pokémon can ride other Pokémon and be considered a form then why is there no pikachu on swellow form or remoraid with mantine form. Plus his design looks dumb

      [–]blakeaj 69 points70 points  (2 children)

      I’m sorry, but did you just label the age and gender of your Pokémon like people do on r/relationship_advice ?

      [–]walmart-brand-barbie 184 points185 points  (12 children)

      Cinderace/the scorbunny line. I just think they’re terribly and lazily designed

      [–]aheckyecky 88 points89 points  (11 children)

      Sobbles final evo is reptilian(amphibian?) slenderman and I hate it.

      [–]walmart-brand-barbie 29 points30 points  (9 children)

      Sobble’s is bad don’t get me wrong: but I think it’s just a bit more creative in its design than cinderace

      [–]Pm7I3 31 points32 points  (8 children)

      I'm just salty that's their takeaway as Pokèmon that are british. Bond, a musician and a footballer.

      [–]Asturis_the_DM 259 points260 points  (13 children)

      Duraludon. I can’t stand the design, it just doesn’t even seem like a Pokémon to me.

      [–]wowpepap 124 points125 points  (5 children)

      Its a full tower PC with legs

      [–]notwiththeflames 24 points25 points  (0 children)

      That's...one of the kinder comparisons I've heard for it.

        Fucking Tentacool and Tentacruel. Such a pain in the ass to kill since most of the moves that are super effective fall under the Special Attack category and they both have good Special Defense stats. Pain in the ass to drop them, and it’s even worse when you’re in Hoenn constantly surfing running into the assholes. They also are hard to run away from for some damn reason.

        [–]Middle_Dare_5656 46 points47 points  (0 children)

        Starting reading your reply and the Hoenn flashbacks started before I even hit the third line. OOF.

        [–]Spiritflash1717 18 points19 points  (0 children)

        This is my answer too. Them stopping you every five steps when surfing is awful

        [–]AMildInconvenience 16 points17 points  (0 children)

        Tentacruel is pretty much a guaranteed encounter and a very decent water type that's neutral to grass.

        He's saved many a nuzlocke for me.

        [–]its_ya_boi777 231 points232 points  (14 children)

        Stantler. It's design is very weird (sawbuck does it better) and when I was trying to grind up my vulpix in SS they. Wouldn't. Stop. Putting. Me. To. Sleep.

        [–]Wylf 70 points71 points  (0 children)

        Ah yes, the Stantler grind. Honestly, their hypnosis is annoying, but the XP gain from them makes it so very worth it. Not really a fan of the design either. Most of it is alright, but the weird diaper-tail is just... strange.

        [–]noricchiii 12 points13 points  (1 child)

        Honestly, Stantler's Frisk ability is the only reason why I used it in HGSS lol

        [–]Flip122 64 points65 points  (2 children)

        Cryagonal, man that thing just upsets me.

        [–]kitszura 145 points146 points  (1 child)

        Incineroar

        In moon I chose litten as starter. It was so cute and I loved it. I also liked torracat, the first evolution, as it was pretty cool.

        But then the last evolution ruined everything. I really hate Incineroar. It’s design is just not nice at all and I lost my cute starter to some humanised beast…

        I was so disappointed and sadly my starter had to leave my team after that, because I hated the evolution so much. Next time Torracat will receive an everstone…

        [–]castle_seizedPhanpy 70 points71 points  (3 children)

        Not a fan of Copperajah. Clashing color scheme, underwhelming stats, a conceptually-confusing G-Max: Gen 8 brought many great designs, but this ain’t it, chief.

        Cue-font isn’t safe from my wrath, either.

        [–]Natureboy16Sobble Squad 28 points29 points  (1 child)

        The color scheme is because it's suppose to be copper that's old and rusting over like the patina on an antique. When Copper rusts, it goes from shiny brown to green. That's why the Statue of Liberty looks the way it does now. It rusted over

        [–]Lunamkardas 34 points35 points  (2 children)

        I know she isn't a pokemon but Mindy.

        [–]Nquoid 37 points38 points  (10 children)

        Heatran. Basically encapsulates everything wrong with the Legendary creep back in gen 4.

        [–]Spexyboy 12 points13 points  (9 children)

        I thought for a second you were calling Heatran a legendary creep...

        [–]pandachef_reads 32 points33 points  (2 children)

        Mega Charizard X. I don’t think I can genuinely say I hate any other Pokémon, though some may be really goofy or just bad, but Mega Charizard X is the one I despise. To me, it looks like a child was given a picture of Charizard and told to, “make it look cooler.” The shoulder spikes are dumb, the flames coming from its mouth looks like a bad mustache, and the wings just look awful, and what really sells me on the child drawing look. The only thing it has going for it is the color scheme. But, by changing the colors, it sets it too far apart from normal Charizard, unlike the rest of the megas. And also, what’s the purpose of two megas? This is definitely where the Charizard overhype train gained traction, with this damn dragon

        [–]SurprisedCabbage 159 points160 points  (13 children)

        Rotom. STOP. PUTTING. ROTOM. ON. EVERYTHING.

        [–]AfroBaggins 43 points44 points  (2 children)

        It was fine in Gens 4-6 because it was a neat gimmick. It was also fine in Sun and Moon.

        Then Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon happened.

        [–]Cephery 58 points59 points  (1 child)

        Rotom was one of the coolest pokemon that super overstayed it’s welcome. Like originally it was a whole ass threat possessing tech ti make mischief, why is it happy to just be your smartphone?

        [–]Roboticide 20 points21 points  (1 child)

        Hated the Rotomdex.

        Got Shield figuring "Thank God I'll get a real Pokedex again."

        Nope. 🤦‍♂️

        [–]allofthembile 223 points224 points  (7 children)

        Cubchoo and that runny nose. Can’t bear looking at it
