    I remember once going up against, I'm pretty sure it was a Miltank or a Wigglytuf, can't quite pin it, but anyway, I do remember it infatuating my pokemon with cute charm, then paralyzing it with body slam, and finally it confused my Pokemon with sweet kiss. That was a nightmare.

    Infatuation (Attract) and Paralysis. Possibly Confusion.

    And it gets worse if you blend all three together and then Sleep. And Mean Look.

    Although with Jirachi and Iron Head, Paralysis is pretty fun.

    Freeze is easily the worst once it has been activated. It's very unreliable to actually freeze something, but once you do, it's probably the most deadly status condition. It's like sleep except you can't even use Sleep Talk, and you have to rely on a 20% chance every turn to be cured as opposed to a timer that is guaranteed to end after a few turns at most. I once had a Ludicolo go frozen for about 22 turns in Battle Subway, while the opponent just threw random status moves at me without actually damaging Ludicolo. I think I still won that battle, but the fact that it took several minutes of game time just to unfreeze was terrible.

    Probably Sleep, you're guaranteed not to be able to use any move.

    Though, if someone using Double Team is considered a status effect, then that's the most annoying one in my book!

    Confusion normally. Freeze when it activates and never ends until you faint.

    Definitely Infatuation. According to Bulbapedia, there's a 50% chance of an Infatuated Pokémon being able to attack. It seriously seems at LEAST like a 25% chance.

    Seriously, it's the confusion and the paralysis. The others seem to be gentle compared to them.

    Hmm....
    Well let's say we're including: Sleep, Poison, Badly Poisoned, Drowsy, Infatuated, Paralyzed, Frozen, Burned, and Confused.

    Then I say a draw... between Confusion, Infatuated, and Frozen.

    All of them.

    If anything, Poison would be the one that is less annoying to me, at least with that you only lose HP. Burn you lose HP and Physical Moves' damage ends up being halved. Frozen and Sleep make you unable to do much until you hopefully get out of it the next turn. Paralysis reduces Speed, and you have a chance of not being able to do anything. Confusion makes you hurt yourself sometimes. And Attraction makes you unable to do anything at all other then drool over your opponent, and all you do is question their taste.

    I don't want to lose HP, but I'd take that over being unable to do anything, or hope for luck to kick in, or have my attacks weaker or Speed lower. Ultimately, I'm annoyed whenever anything is done to me, but I enjoy it nonetheless, plus I do the same thing anyways so the NPC shall feel my pain even though they can't.

    But yah, pretty much a whatever way tie between everything besides Poison.

    I would be extremely happy to see confusion removed completely. For some reason I just can't stand it.

    Not really an entire status condition, but I think Spore is extremely cheap.

    Bah, I tottaly despise Sleep. It is really annoying when your Pokémon is taking a pounding when asleep. Sure, Rest saves you sometimes... but when no Chesto Berry is attached to the Pokémon... or, no Early Bird Ability..

    Yeah, that alongside Confusion, Attract, and Paralysis.

    But Paralysis gives me a run for my time >.>

    Burn for sure. I've never actually had the problem with Confusion (I've knocked myself out a few times, sure, but it has never been a major pain and rarely fails on the NPC Pokemon more than it fails on mine). I usually have a couple antidotes, but rarely Burn Heals. Freeze...well it is hard to get frozen really. Paralyze isn't that bad on me for some reason. Infatuation rarely pops up. But Burn? It appears a good bit, lowers attack along with dealing damage, and is rarely curable for me. At least it doesn't deal damage outside of battle.

    Switch out...

    Sleep is annoying. If you switch out, the sleep counter resets, and your forced to stay in if you want any hope of waking up.

    Attract (Infatuation) has to be the worst. I despise how it should be able to attack but it can't because it's "in love" and you have to either switch or make the opponent switch, faint or make the opponent faint before the affect wears off. But in spite of all of that....I still love it and use it heavily (I just hate when it's used against me).

    Sleep, Badly poisoned, paralysis and confusion. Attract sometimes takes the cake too.

    Confusion and sleep. I can handle Paralysis and Attract, since they rarely immobilize me (that's the extent of my luck, really)

    I also hate moves that cause my pokemon to flinch. It always seems to happen when I'm about to win the battle.

    Confusion is the worst. I despise it. In order from most to least for me is confusion, infatuated, paralyzed, poisoned, burned, frozen and asleep.

    After careful consideration I'm going to go with the sleep status. This is because moves like Sleep Powder and Spore have an accuracy that's higher than it should be!

    I hated poison back in gens 1-4, but in generation 5, it's got to be sleep and freeze....

    Attract? Confusion? Pfft, you can just swap out of those.
