View Full Version : Which pokemon do you ignore?

Shiny Rokon
31st January 2006, 1:14 AM
I mean, which pokemon when playing the original games gets left out for you? Which you don't catch or if you catch them all doesn't get trained and you may generally not like?

31st January 2006, 1:23 AM
Magikarp, uh...........tons of others

31st January 2006, 2:13 AM
That iritating pain in the arse, rattata.....along with many others I cannot remember......uhh diglet. >.>

31st January 2006, 2:31 AM
Rattata, and I generally leave Snorlax alone. Dunno why, never liked him (catch him for 'Dex reasons, though).

?Mokey Mokey?
31st January 2006, 3:25 AM
I usually ignore spinarak. Not to mention all of those other pokemon that you run into with every step.

31st January 2006, 4:41 AM
Also, ?Mokey Mokey?, this is the Red/Blue forum, Spinarak didn't exist in these games :P

5th February 2006, 7:51 AM
I hated Tangela in the games. I never used it, and i probably never will

5th February 2006, 6:40 PM
I never really use my mew. O.o
I use it to surf and that's basicly it.
And ocasionally I ignore my starter. <.<

5th February 2006, 6:49 PM
I never really use my mew. O.o
I use it to surf and that's basicly it.
And ocasionally I ignore my starter. <.<

How could you not use Mew o.O I could understand about the started thing though, because i never use it anymore :/

13th February 2006, 4:02 AM
I hate Lickitung. I ignore most of the first stange evolution pokemon that you encounter in the wild.

RaZoR LeAf
13th February 2006, 2:19 PM
Snorlax, Chansey, any of the Legendaries, Dratini family,

13th February 2006, 9:01 PM
I ignored...pretty much every pokemon you get later in the game (from vulpix to tangela), and all the red exclusives, since my first game was Blue. And water pokemon in general. By the time I had the right rod, I'd already filled up my team. And rock pokemon, but I don't know why. And zubat for some reason. I ignored a lot, now that I think about it.

Valoc Darkmyre
15th February 2006, 7:53 PM
I tend to ignore Tangela and Chansey. They just don't feel like they're worth raising. Then again, I'm a guy who likes Lickitung, so I might try raising them eventually.

15th February 2006, 10:45 PM
i avoid ratatta and all of those weak ones

Shiny Rokon
16th February 2006, 2:12 AM
I avoid Ditto thats it, will dump it in day care maybe, but i really can't be bothered training something which doesn't change much. As fun as it would be to have one in real life ^_^

17th February 2006, 11:42 AM
Rattata and Raticate.

I absolutely hate them. I hate them with a passion. The way they look...ugh!

You will NEVER catch me using one...

20th February 2006, 12:15 AM
I ignore ugly pokemon like Golbat or Tangela. I never used Ditto, except when I tried to get the cooltrainer move.

Flame Haze SnS
20th February 2006, 6:48 AM
Never used Ratatta and Caterpie. They're weakest in my opinion.

28th February 2006, 11:50 AM
Onix. It's cool, but generally, I never bother. And I used a Geodude... once.

Ratticate I have used. It's quite a weak spot in the team, but it can hold it's own sometimes. And a I love using Golbat/Crobat. Don't know what everyone hates it :/ (Probably cause of the hideous tongue on the Golbat sprite in Red and Blue... *shudders*)

1st March 2006, 9:52 PM
I basically ignore getting bulbusaur for a starter. I also don't like Pidgey

1st March 2006, 9:56 PM
I really hate Rattata, Pidgey, Zigzagoon, Wurmple, and Zubat! They always got to appear a lot of times. They are the Pokemon that appear a lot of times and that irritates me!!!

Umi Mizuno
2nd March 2006, 5:50 PM
Most of the time I ignore Pidgey. It shows up too much and too often. x.x;;

2nd March 2006, 6:30 PM
ratatta :( they are soo annoying.

Jolly Latias
2nd March 2006, 8:32 PM
Never used Ratatta and Caterpie. They're weakest in my opinion.

I don't bother training Ratatas/Raticates either, but I won't forget the battle disc in XD, where a Lv.5 Ratata actually manages to defeat a LV.100 shuckle. That's kinda funny!


kavvie Man
7th March 2006, 5:48 PM
TORCHIC 23, how do you create a site like that?

anyways, i ignore every pkmn if it is under lvl 200

i mean 200

8th March 2006, 1:43 AM
Zubat. It's everywhere, it's fast enough to annoy me in the early parts of the game with little time waster moves, and it's ugly :/

AJ Flibble
9th March 2006, 6:39 PM
Pokemon that aren't fully evolved until the GSC ie. Golbat, Onix...

I also miss out Lapras. By the time I get it my levels are too high to be bothered.

And Caterpie is awesome in the game. Train it to Butterfree and watch Confusion and Sleep Powder dominate the first half of the game.

Other than that, all fighters apart from Hitmonlee (I know I'm a Machamp fan, but Submission doesn't quite cut it), plenty of waters, and just general random Pokemon really, mostly ones I can't get easily.

13th March 2006, 10:37 PM
Magikarp and Ratatta... i despise them.

13th March 2006, 10:47 PM
I wouldn't train Magikarp if it didn't evolve into Gyarados but as it does I usually have one on my team at some time. But I loath Zubat. I catch it after I've won the Pokemon League and all i have to do is complete the dex.

14th March 2006, 3:38 AM
Caterpie, weedle, zubat, pidgey.

Iodes Sakura
15th March 2006, 4:13 AM
I tend to ignore every Pokémon that I have in my Red version right now except for my level 100 glitches(Missingno., Kingler, Marowak) once in a great while, and my team, which consists of Dugtrio, Pikachu, Charizard, Pidgeot, uh...Vaporeon....and Kadabra. Highest in the team is level 37, lowest is 36...and I'm at the E4...kinda pathetic..

~Shadow Espeon~
15th March 2006, 8:49 PM
I ignore Pidgey, Tentacool and Rattata.

15th March 2006, 9:26 PM
I ignore the common pokemon like Zubat,Rattata,Pidgey,Magikarp and others.

15th March 2006, 9:39 PM
I ignore the common pokemon like Zubat,Rattata,Pidgey,Magikarp and others.

I hate zubats they really pester me when I'm in caves looking for other pokemon to catch.

15th March 2006, 9:42 PM
Nincada!!! Too freeckin hard to train!!!!!!

Iodes Sakura
17th March 2006, 2:55 AM
Um...this is the R/B/Y thread...I don't think Nincada was around back then...

17th March 2006, 3:29 AM
I ignore Caterpie and Pidgey mostly, than comes Sandshrew.

Don't know what it is; I don't hate them, they're pretty cute, but they pop up too much. o_O

Caterpie Master
17th March 2006, 4:01 PM
Why does everyone hates caterpie:( sob..sob...
I HATE zubats and golbats!
they're almost everywhere and completely annoying!!!

pigs do fly
17th March 2006, 9:10 PM
I hate tentacool because at low levels lvl 30+ tentacool are so ANNOYING!

Dark Butterfly
17th March 2006, 11:02 PM
I hate Magikarp's >_< the only thing good about them is that they evolve into Garyadose(sp) whats the point of "Splash"?

And Zubats, Geodudes & Rattata's get REALLY annoying when you're in the caves its like every 2-4 steps you get one of those >_<

18th March 2006, 3:40 AM
PIDGEY argggg

19th March 2006, 2:52 AM
bug type pokemon always
i only catch them to add to my dex rarely train them

Dark Butterfly
19th March 2006, 5:17 AM
Yeah those Carterpies and Weedles get REALLY annoying espleshy in the forest =_=

19th March 2006, 10:07 PM
I avoid Tentacools and Tentacruels. They are soo annoying.

The Mighty Wurmple
19th March 2006, 10:31 PM
I avoid Chansey, Ditto, Clefairy/able and Jiggly and Wiggly.

19th March 2006, 11:29 PM
i ignore tentacools and tentacruels. i hate them because they are everywhere in the water

20th March 2006, 5:45 AM
I tend to avoid Zubat/Golbat and Tentacool/Tentacruel. I hate when those things won't let you run from battle.. Gah.

20th March 2006, 6:11 AM
Any wild pokemon I encounter. (excluding Shinies, but that's never happened :P )

21st March 2006, 6:54 AM
Mainly everything, unless I'm training. Unless it's rare and I want to catch it, i'll either ignore it, or pummel it.

The Organizer
21st March 2006, 1:46 PM
I ignore all the wild pokemon you see in grass (ie rattata and zubat and all the darn bug pokemon)

21st March 2006, 6:18 PM
I mean, which pokemon when playing the original games gets left out for you? Which you don't catch or if you catch them all doesn't get trained and you may generally not like?

fishing: magikarp

walking around: ratta

2nd April 2006, 9:27 PM
I ignore nething I don't want in my team, unless it's rare or something I like e.g. paras. In my Yellow right now I'm ignoring every wild Pokemon I see since my team is set until I get charmander, squirtle, and drowze. I once had 149 Pokemon, including mew in dex and couldnt figure out final two, was rattata/raticate. argh i hate those two so much

2nd April 2006, 10:01 PM
Jigglypoof, or Clefairy, or any of those airy-fairy types of Pokemon. Meowth also. They seriously piss me off.

Magma Grunt Alex
2nd April 2006, 10:18 PM
I would ignore all the zubats and Golbats around. They are so annyoing.

Shiny Heracross
2nd April 2006, 10:31 PM
I'd just catch a Magikarp just to get my PokeDex filled. They're just too freakin hard to train.

Miltank Lover
8th April 2006, 6:32 PM
you proberly wno't see me with pokemon that don't evolve :/ because i just don't like them (with exception of Miltank and Tauros ofcourse)

9th April 2006, 1:34 AM
I would say Ratatta, Oddish, and Tentacool. Ughhhhhhh... they're so annoying.

9th April 2006, 1:37 AM
I always ignore Tentacool. Along with every common Pokemon that does nothing but annoy me.

9th April 2006, 9:08 AM
Cubones.. I think their ugly.

9th April 2006, 1:30 PM
I ignore is Magikarp and Tentacool.

Hoshi no Kabii
9th April 2006, 3:21 PM
I don't really ignore any pokemon. I tend to use pokemon that no one ever uses.

Flakey J
9th April 2006, 7:45 PM
I generally ignore... Bellsprout, Venonat, Caterpie, Rattata, Spearow, Gastly and Grimer.

AJ Flibble
9th April 2006, 11:55 PM
I generally ignore... Bellsprout, Venonat, Caterpie, Rattata, Spearow, Gastly and Grimer.

Ha. You're missing out. Victreebel with Razor Leaf and Sleep Powder is awesome in RBY. Spearow and Caterpie can be good when evolved as well. Other than that, Pokemon I generally have in GSC.

Flakey J
10th April 2006, 2:59 AM
Well, I don't generally use them. So I ignore them.

Opal Pikachu13
18th April 2006, 3:47 PM
Well, I ignore Spearow, Mankey, Grimer, Snorlax, Diglett, Jynx, and Psyduck.

18th April 2006, 6:31 PM
Just one word.. Bellsprout... I have always hated that pokemon, with a passion.. always uses sleep powder, poisen poweder etc.. >_<

20th April 2006, 6:59 PM
Oh, I also ignore any bug Pokemon. Why? They get owned in this generation -.-

10th May 2006, 5:54 AM
I ignore...


11th May 2006, 10:22 PM
I'd have to say that I ignore pidgey, rattata, diglet, meowth, oddish...bunch of others. I train them all to evolution. When they're on my team I love them but in the wild they are so annoying. Oh, and Magikarp.

Hyper Shadow
13th May 2006, 8:37 PM
I ignor zubat and golbat

Comis Patronus
13th May 2006, 8:39 PM
I definitely ignore zubat, magikarp, geodude, tentacool, tentacruel, and other useless and pathetic Pokemon.

13th May 2006, 8:57 PM
Zubat, Golbat, Magikarp....anything which is infuriating, weak, and gives low EXP.

I just run and save myself the PP.

Though I try and catch every Pokemon I see on the games - saves on backtracking, and wasting better balls on rubbish Pokemon.

13th May 2006, 11:04 PM
I usually ignore Pidgey, Ratatta, Magikarp, ect. Basically all of the majorly weak pokemon.

Iron Lugia
14th May 2006, 4:46 AM
It's obvious: Oddish.

Fallen Guardian
14th May 2006, 9:45 AM
Caterpie, Weedle...Venonat. I'm not big into the Bug pokemon from the original games. I only ever trained them to get them to evolve...that was about it.

14th May 2006, 10:53 AM
caterpie oddish weedle pidgey rattata with more

Komedic Konservationist
14th May 2006, 11:08 AM
I ignore almost all Pokemon in this generation, since none of the pre-Johto Pokemon are interesting in my opinion >__>

Prof. 9
14th May 2006, 11:25 AM
Die Parasect!!! You Freezed My Game!!!

14th May 2006, 3:19 PM
I hate oddish and caterpie
I cant stand them they are EVIL
blaziken lover

14th May 2006, 3:23 PM
Zubat,Pidgey,Weedle,Oddish,Magikarp,Wingull,Peplih er. And others

14th May 2006, 3:57 PM
I ignore every pokemon that doesn't evolve by level...lol

14th May 2006, 5:04 PM
I ignore all the way-too-common Pokemon of the area. In the sea, Tentecool. In the grass, every friggin' bird that happens to cross my path. And Ditto.

14th May 2006, 5:14 PM
Usually Magikarp or Rattata or Pidgey

15th May 2006, 6:44 AM
Pretty much... Zubat.

19th May 2006, 12:47 PM
zubat and golbat....if crobat was in this game i would be getting a zubat and train right away! (i love crobats) but since crobat isn't in this game, i just ignore zubat and golbat

Twilit Dragoon
19th May 2006, 1:28 PM
Zubat, Golbat, Pikachu, Pidgey, Tentacool, Seel are just some of the Pokemon I ignore.

21st May 2006, 6:27 PM
I ignore Tentacool. Not good attacks, and Zubat--soo annoying.

24th May 2006, 7:53 AM
Most poison pokemon such as ekans , koffing , grimer etc .

24th May 2006, 10:47 AM
Tentacool and Zubat. Cuz they are everywhere. If you want one, you don\t have to search. And you don't get much exp.

24th May 2006, 1:51 PM
Zubat and Tentacool. But I love the Kangaskhan that M produces (Yay! Sky Attack!).

AJ Flibble
24th May 2006, 4:39 PM
All you saying Rattata make me sick. Try ACTUALLY using one - once it learns Hyper Fang at L14 and evolves at L20, and able to bet moves such as Dig and Bubblebeam for Rock/Grounds, you won't regret it. I'm speaking from experience here, it's amazing actually, and neither Clefable or Meowth are doing badly either. Oh, and Fearow, but I always new Fearow>Pidgeot. (mono-normal)

24th May 2006, 4:51 PM
Rattata & Magikarp

Twilit Dragoon
24th May 2006, 5:13 PM
Another one is Goldeen and Magikarp.

24th May 2006, 5:33 PM
I usually ignore Lickitung,Diglett and Tentacool.And mostly every other Pokemon that appear often(such as Zubat).

Nathan Madien
24th May 2006, 8:14 PM
I ignore Metapod and Kakuna, since there is no real reason to capture one.

24th May 2006, 8:54 PM
I ignore-
Land-Weedle,Metapod,Kakuna,Caterpie,Rattata and Pidgey

Thats it!

29th May 2006, 7:19 PM
All Legendaries, because I hate them.

29th May 2006, 7:21 PM
definentaly weedle rattata and magikarp

29th May 2006, 7:41 PM
Tangela really sucks, and i try to avoid zubats...
But thats hard if you are in a cave =.=

30th May 2006, 1:31 AM
Grimer , koffing and most poison pokemon. I just don't seem that interested in them and plus most of them have slow speeds.

30th May 2006, 1:39 AM
Zubat and oddish. Oddish is so usless! Zubat's just plain Ug-ly.

30th May 2006, 3:03 AM

Greek Saw
30th May 2006, 3:48 AM
Snorlax, Chansey, any of the Legendaries, Dratini family,
Why? All of them are pretty much awesome.

Nathan Madien
30th May 2006, 5:02 AM
Tangela really sucks, and i try to avoid zubats...
But thats hard if you are in a cave =.=

Whoever invented Repel should get a Nobel Prize. One Zubat is fine, but going through 200-300 in a given round...can't I just fly over Mount Moon instead?

30th May 2006, 1:01 PM
I also ignore eevee :p

Aoba Tadamichi
30th May 2006, 4:08 PM
Zubats in pretty much everywhere and in Power Plant, pretty much everything except Zapdos of course. Tentacools are big no too while surfing.

Sharpedo Boy
30th May 2006, 5:15 PM

30th May 2006, 5:25 PM
I also ignore eevee :p
Thats strange. :o who would skip Eevee?

2nd June 2006, 10:38 PM
I normally don't bother with Eevee, unless I want a Vaporeon.

3rd June 2006, 2:46 AM

Umm, this is for the first generation, not the third.

I just remembered, I ignore Mewtwo. Yep. By the end of the game, I totally forget about Mewtwo. I hate it, so why would I be eager to cath it? The only way I remember it is if I'm in Cerulean and go past the cave.

I skipped over most of the Safari Zone pokemon, too. They're almost impossible to catch, as the pnly way to get them in a safari ball is to throw a rock at them, which usually makes them flee! That's why I quit the safari zone in yellow, and only returned to it on my second run through the game to get surf.

8th June 2006, 11:15 AM
Raticate, Rattata and....well, Tentacool.. ><

10th June 2006, 5:22 AM
Only Tentacool for me. Seeing a pokémon more than 3 times every minute gets on your nerves. Really.

Herb Master
12th June 2006, 8:28 AM
rattata by far

12th June 2006, 12:17 PM
Tentacool, unless I'm training, and even then I mostly ignore them.

12th June 2006, 12:51 PM
I ignored Porygon

Magma Instinct
12th June 2006, 4:03 PM
All the Starters, Rattata, Hitmon Family, All Electric types ( Including Pikachu ). Actually the only types I used were ground types, becuase Earthquake was the strongest move in those games...

12th June 2006, 4:34 PM
I hate tentacool and zubat and ratatta and pidgy........

20th June 2006, 5:16 AM
I usually ignore, for one reason or another, the Rare exclusives (Electabuzz and Magmar), most non-evolvers (Chansey, Snorlax, Ditto, Hitmonlee, Aerodactyl, Farfetch'd, Onix, Lapras, Kangaskhan, Lickitung and Porygon), and all Psychics (with the exception of Starmie), as well as the Bellsprout, Clefairy, Diglett, Doduo, Ekans, Grimer, Koffing, Pidgey, Mankey, Magnemite, Voltorb, Tentacool and Zubat families.

I'm not counting here, but that's almost half the pokedex... :) Of course, I don't use all the others at the same time either (not enough patience to raise them all), but it's interesting to try different teams every now and then with those I actually care about.

20th June 2006, 6:05 AM
i ignore paras, parasect and i cant stand mankey, primape, diglett and dugtrio......... i like rattata set though

20th June 2006, 10:59 AM
Spearows, again the Tentacools...Tangela's.

20th June 2006, 2:41 PM
pidgey, tentacool and zubat those pokemons are really a pain.

Nathan Madien
20th June 2006, 5:40 PM
I ignore fish Pokemon. As long as I have Lapras, I don't care about puny Goldeen or forgettable Magikarp.

The Dean of Suds
22nd June 2006, 12:14 AM
I ignore fish Pokemon. As long as I have Lapras, I don't care about puny Goldeen or forgettable Magikarp.
Same as me, along with pinsir.
Over and out,;198;

22nd June 2006, 10:15 AM
I don't think I have ever had a Psyduck or Golduck on my team. ITs strange, as I still think they're both cool pokemon. I also have never used Bulbasaur as my starter. I dislike Grass starters in general.

22nd June 2006, 11:48 AM
mostly cave pokemon, i hated rock tunnle and flash so i only went there once with a tonne of reppels xDDDDD geodudes and zubats will be the death of me!

25th June 2006, 12:34 AM
I often ignore Pidgey because for a lot of people it's either Pidgey or Rattata, and Rattata is just better for me. Pidgey's later evolutions are only good for flying to me, I'd rather have a better bird pokemon. Whereas Ratticate + Hyper Fang = Deliciously Goodness.

27th June 2006, 6:55 AM
Tentacool, Magikarp, Rattata, and in general Bug Pokemon except for Scyther (I've kinda grown attached to it.). And Ekans. I'm more of a Sandshrew fan (Which is why I play Blue. There are a whole lot of my favorite Kanto Pokemon in it.) myself.

27th June 2006, 7:10 AM

I hate that pokemon. As well as Pidgey and Rattata

27th June 2006, 7:48 AM
Bug Pokemon in General.

Nathan Madien
27th June 2006, 4:27 PM
Actually, I ignore Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Even though they are legendary Pokemon, they don't hold up very well against Rock Slide. To me, that's just sad and therefore not even worth it.

Dark Aerodactyl
30th June 2006, 1:59 PM
Tentacool and Spearow. They are so boring

30th June 2006, 2:16 PM
I ignore bug pokemon, normal type pokemon, and pokemon found in the anime.
I rarely use dragon types in the party I have when I'm doing the story.

30th June 2006, 7:50 PM
Zubat and tentacool, I usually don't bother with them, they appear too often...

3rd July 2006, 11:46 PM
Until Fired/Leafgreen I ignore magikarp. I got that one from that guy at the center and went through FRICKIN HELL to get him to my level 33 Houdini. -_-

3rd July 2006, 11:59 PM
i always ignored the tentacool rattata and zubat in these games

The Unknown
4th July 2006, 4:15 PM
I ignore Rattata, Zubat and tentacool! I hate them! But Zubat can be good in Gold cause he evolves into Crobat then:D

4th July 2006, 9:33 PM
Tangela. I always forget about him and by the time I find him, I don't need him. Plus he's pretty silly-looking.

4th July 2006, 11:02 PM
I used to ignore a lot of Pokemon in the R/B/Y series. Golbat, Tangela, Weezing, Mr.Mime, Fearow, and Tentacruel are just a few to name.

5th July 2006, 11:38 AM

5th July 2006, 1:04 PM

Nathan Madien
5th July 2006, 6:29 PM
I once ignored Pikachu in Red. My feeling was, "Yes, you are the star of the anime, but videogame-wise, there are better electric-types than you."

5th July 2006, 8:09 PM
Lol I ignore Tentacool [HATE!], Wurmple, Fearow, Zigzagoon, Linoone, ZUBAT, Geodude...STill have some but...
