    Default Pokemon Disappointments?

    We all love the Pokemon games. Like, a lot. But there are some things about them that just disappointed you at one point- either as a child or now.
    So voice them here!

    Mine would be Delphox. I love the Pokémon, and I chose Fennekin as my starter, but the only thing that disappointed me was the design. I mean you have a Psychic/Fire type fox here, which is so incredibly amazing. Why make the design so... I don't know, bland? Just strange. :c

    **NOTE:** This thread is NOT for saying what you like/ don't like about everything in Pokemon. Please try to stick mainly to the disappointments? :'D

    I like Delphox... :c

    Anyway, my disappointment? That Mega Houndoom isn't an actual evolution of Houndoom.


    I've claimed Shadow the Hedgehog!


    Alpha Sapphire shall be mine!

    Delphox didn't really disappoint me tbh... it's just ninjas always make me break my holy "always choose fire" motto.


    I'm looking at you, Sceptile and Greninja.


    Disappointments? blatant favorism. (I'm probably butthurt because Infernape fan but whatever) Giving Blaziken Speed Boost, a reserved ability, and it's the only non-Kanto starter to get a Mega Evolution? Infernape/Swampert/Feraligatr/Serperior(grass/dragon contrary oh my)/starter deserve one, just in order to a: make it fair; b: make them something serious players use, not people who go "6 STARTAS SO CEWL"

    don't get me started on charizard or mewtwo.


    but come on, mega meganium needs to happen, just the name proves it.

    I wasn't disappointed with what Delphox ended up being, per se, but I will concede to having had hopes of a quadrupedal Fire Starter before X&Y came out.

    As for a Pokemon that disappointed me? Magmortar, probably. Magmar ranks among my favourite Kanto Pokemon, but I truly dislike Magmortar; I have no such problem with and even quite like Electivire, though.

    Disappointments?

    Definitely the Goomy line.

    We couldve had a Steel/Dragon aside from Dialga to take on the fairy type, but instead we got a Pseudo Legendary with horrid offensive presence that has no versatility in any way. AV Goodra is the only viable Goodra, which was disappointing t say the least.

    The lack of a Mega Evolution for Pikachu, he's the mascot of the series...instead Mawile gets one. Mawile? WHAT THE **** IS A MAWILE?!?! MAWILE IS NOBODY ;~;

    Reading Journey to the West now and I believe there can be no greater honor among starters than being based on the Monkey King.

    Still, I've found that (after playing Final Fantasy XI) game developers really have this thing about disregarding game balance in favor of making everybody's favorite even better. I don't think I have to explain why, but for a long time, Final Fantasy XI was disparagingly called "Samurai Fantasy XI".

    Giving out a promo Torchic with Speed Boost and a Mega Evolution item, in particular, lacked subtlety.

    I feel disappointed whenever the game-makers make decisions that don't conform to my every desire, even if said decisions are justifiable.

    Because Raichu needs to be made even more irrelevant. The Light Ball being Pikachu-exclusive was bad enough... besides, Pikachu isn't a fully-evolved Pokémon. Only fully-evolved Pokémon can Mega Evolve.

    When I found out the lack of Pokémon being introduced in the Gen 6.

    Even if we count the mega evolutions it's still the smallest amount of Pokémon being released. Less than 100 is pathetic.

    There are other things I dislike about Pokémon X, but since I acknowledge a lot of the flaws I had with the game are ignorant, I won't even bother mentioning them.

    And by Pokémon X, I am of course also counting Y.
    I'm a huge Pokémon fan and also love movies.

    Can Pikachu even be said to be the mascot these days? Sure, he's a Macy's Parade balloon and he's still Ash's Deux ex Pokemon. But in the gaming franchise, you really don't see all that much of him. In fact, it looks like the original trainer Red canonically picks (wait for it) Charizard as his starter.

    I was talking with somebody who hadn't played Pokemon for a while and he kept going back to how great Charizard (from the way he was talking about things though, it was obvious he hasn't played the game since Generation II).

    I was disappointed in Delphox.
    Still choose Fennekin as my starter though lol

    I was also a little bit disappointed Goomy was the pseudo legendary?
    I like when they look fearsome lol

    Pokemon designs I was disappointed in this gen Swirlix evo line, Aromatisse, Binacle line, and Hawlucha.
    I just don't like them much xD

    Besides 6th gen disappointments, I don't remember many (6th gen is still fresh in the mind)
    I know I was disappointed in Sinnoh's lack of fire pokemon and the tedious caves.

    6th gen is still one of my favorite pokemon games though ^^ hundreds of hours into it x.x

    Yeah, Pikachu is only the mascot of the Pokémon anime, and that's it.

    The mascots of the Pokémon games are legendary Pokémon, Charizard and Blastoise. I'm of course referring to the ones on the covers of the games.

    I was really disappointed in the Mega Evolution choices. I was really hoping for all the starters to get Mega Evos, but that did not happen. Also, I feel like some of the Mega Evos should of just been regular evolutions.

    But, this is just my opinion. Fill free to disagree.

    Kinda wish some of the Mega Evolutions were actual evolutions. Some pokemon like Bannette and Mawile needed regular evolutions. While Mega-Mawile's all right, Mega-Bannete just isn't worth giving up a mega slot for.

    Though the Mega X and Y Mewtwo wasn't necessary...

    Like Blaze The Movie Fan, I was disappointed that there were only 69 new Pokemon in Kalos. Before October, about 40 Pokemon were revealed. We knew more than half of the Pokedex before the game was even released! That really took away from the feeling of discovery that I think should go along with a new generation.

    I was also disappointed that only Charizard and Mewtwo got two Megas, especially Charizard since it's supposed to part of a trio (Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise).

    I was just thinking. Would it be unduly disparaging to refer to Charizard as the "WAIFU Pokemon"?

    Pikachu wouldn't work. Mega Stones are regular evolutionary stones infused with the power of the legendary weapon (aka yvetal/xerneas)

    you try to mega evolve it you get raichu. It won't work.

    And including megas (consider them inbattle evolutions.) and the event trio, you get

    69 + 30 + 3 + 2 (Lati twins) = 104 New Pokémon


    I didn't mind the number too much, megas made it up for me somewhat.

    Maybe not, but I can't see why a Mega Raichu wouldn't work.

    I mean common, I love Raichu and it NEEDS improvement.

    I'm just too happy they finally started using 3-D models instead of sprites to be worried about the quantity of Pokemon added.

    ^ I was thinking about that actually. It would work, but I guess in the intro gen to Mega Evolution it's best to be conservative and stick with what you know.

    As in creating 600 BST monsters like Mega Blaziken.

    what would that look like, anyway?

    The lack of interact-able and legendary Pokemon in X/Y. I'm not talking about Generation specific Pokemon, I just mean in general. I know Pokemon Bank makes it easier to get these, but I enjoy having these mini events in the games and also enjoy collecting one-time/legendary Pokemon.
    Favorite Pokemon: Mew and Charmander because they win at life.

    my Disappointment is that they need to bring back the battle frontier like emerald had but keep the point after each battle thing.

    But very smart and justified from a gameplay economics perspective.

    Pikachu was on the cover of a game too, but it was a pointless, pandering, money-squeezing back-adaptation that shouldn't be counted as a part of the main series, so yeah.

    I feel the same way. Why only give the Kanto Starters and Blaziken a Mega Evolution? I don't even like Blaziken, I love Sceptile and I was disappointed that none of the other Starters got a Mega.

    I wanted to see the Sinnoh starters get Mega Evos really badly. Why did Gamefreak only choose some Pokemon. They should made a Mega Evo for every fan, with the starters.
