Thread: Most Dissapointing Pokemon You Have Used From The 5th Generation

    I would say the Elemental Monkeys, Zebstrika, and Unfezant were the most dissapointing for me. The Elemental Monkeys I actually never really liked but when I tried using one, it would always quickly faint just like Unfezant. Zebstrika was just too boring to train even though I did like the little cry it made.

    Hmmmmmmm hard
    You see I really stuck with the team I had and it served me well

    But............

    Darumaka, scraggy, cubchoo, the elemental monkeys and thundurus (the only flying type move it can use is sky drop, which is useless)

    Archeops was terrible the first time I played the game. It has a terrible ability and the it lears aren't very good.
    Bearctic sucks too because its defence stats are weak. A flamethrower or even brick break could one hit ko it.

    I thought a Pawniard that I caught would do something apart from faint all of the time, but it didn't

    The most disappointing Pokemon to me is definitely Sawsbuck. It was my favorite 5th Gen Pokemon until I actually used it.

    Bisharp, as much as I like it, seems awfully frail for such decent defensive stats.

    Hydreigon, it's training/evolution cycle is ridiculous, Braviary is in that boat too sadly(the Pokemon I was looking forward to most, pre-release, and the reason I picked White).

    Swoobat for it's useless stats as I really like it.

    Garbadoor and Lilligant for their crap movepools(Hoping they fix that in B/W-2).


    Little sad to see Sawsbuck listed here a bit, as it's one I planed on using in a Black or White 2 playthrough.

    I hate to say this, but Serperior was a bit of a letdown. It's still easily my favorite design out of the final forms of the Gen V starters, but my God, its movepool is so poor and Grass is such a horrible defensive type. I don't think it's a bad Pokémon, but I expected much more.

    Liepard. I tried it once, and it's a cool Pokémon and everything, but its paper-thin defense is unbearable.

    Snivy's line, was such a pain to work with in-game, and was very disappointed at its moveset and it being tougher to use than past Grass Starters.

    I had high hopes for Galvantula, but it really did not impress me. It might just have been this particular one, but it took forever to level up and would faint after a 1x effective move. However, one trip to Chargestone Cave and my new Eelektross did the trick

    Purrloin. It dies too easily early game with lack of decent moves. I mean, Scratch for 12 levels? That's it?

    Haxorus. I thought it would OWN. turns out it was weak as hell. thank God there was hydreigon to the rescue

    Another would be Emboar - looked so EPIC in the pictures, but very weak with defense

    finally Serperior - before bw came out, this was the one for me to get, when i got it, it was complete garbage.

    I found Galvantula to be surprisingly excellent, nothing manages to get a single hit on it with it's super speed and accurate Thunders.

    Eelektross. I had to use it for a non-standard OU tourney (you are given a five letter word, have to make a team with pokes starting with the letters from the word, plus any poke of your choosing), and it was by far my LVP. I had thought it would at least be OK, considering in the TCG its pretty darn awesome.

    ...implying you had some expectations for Stunfisk besides it being terrible.

    I thought pidove would evolve in to something like staraptor -.-
    Unfezant is really ugly and useless imo.

    Swoobat disappointed me... I'm excited to train a cofagrigus in my main team of Pokemon in BW2... but I get the sense it will also dissapoint me : D

    It's funny because about 1/3 of the Pokemon mentioned so far are Pokemon ie used in play troughs of my own and they have been fantastic.

    Zebstrika, Beartic and samurott are half of my main team on white and as much as I didn't want to evolve dewott, I'm glad I did because he's a powerhouse on my team. Oh, I also used a swoon at on that team until very recently. I got it up to about lvl 60 and got tired of it, but it was solid through the story.

    Pokemon I had trouble with were liepard, the monkeys ( not because of evolving early, but because I always had something that outclassed it.) and currently, Zorua. I'm raising one in my black right now and it's just so fragile. Can't wait til it evolves in a few more levels and improves a little.

    Also, darumakkas special attack makes me so sad. I had no idea a pokemons sp atk could be so abysmal from such a powerful Pokemon. I gave it flamethrower and flame charge before trading it over and couldn't believe flame charge was outperforming flamethrower so overwhelmingly.

    Patrat/Watchog. Was hoping for another Sentret/Furret (a usable - at least IMO - regional rodent) but instead was more of a Raticate, with an ugly design, and being pretty darn useless.

    The Pidove line was disappointing as well. I remember when its design came out and I was excited to see how its evolutions would turn out... And when I played the game, I was completely disappointed by them.

    Zorua & Zoroark disappointed me too. I didn't see much special of those two except for their gimmick ability Illusion, which was quite fun to use, but I found their defenses much too frail and a rather dull movepool.

    And not in specific Pokemon, but the overall lack of Poison-types (one of my personal favorites) was disappointing. The only pure Poison types we got were the two garbage bags... :\

    I tried to use Deerling when playing through the game. It didn't last very long, though that may be because I got it just before the Cold Storage area.

    Also, in a bit of a twist, Simisear was pretty much exactly as crappy as I expected.

    The Elemental Monkeys were total ****, with both horrible designs, and very underwhelming stats, and movepools.

    Aside from the stupid monkeys, Gigalith wasn't great because of it's tiny movepool, and Bisharp kept getting his *** handed to him by non-effective moves (he even had a defensive nature)
