    It's so annoying, because I need quite a few common Pokemon (well they were common in pre-Gen 5 games) and I can't ever get them because everybody wants level 9 or under legendaries.

    I try not to do this on my first playthrough of a game. Anything goes on the 2nd+ playthroughs, so I do end up using a lot of previous gen Pokemon eventually.

    Same... it feels unoriginal... I mean don't you just wanna try each of the new Gen's pokemon? Especially if you're directly in love w/ them once you saw the first images?

    Yeah. A kid offering a raticate for a level 5 zekrom. My friend saw it and he wanted a raticate in black 2 for pokedex reason so he tried getting into hacks so he gets the level 5 zekrom to trade. Like c'mon if they want the random legendaries at really low levels wait until you can get it in the after game and get it at a proper good level or if worse they will hack and suffer the consiquences and maybe not get in a pokemon tornament again. Some of the trades on the GTS make no sense, I was watching random trades and someone traded a level 5 japaneeze magnemite for a level 56 english magneton.... yeah for the masuda method for shinies but that much of a level differance... the other guy probably wanted a really cool pokemon that he doesn't need to train because his other pokemon were way to under leveled.....

    Something PWT-related that has been grinding my gears lately.

    Being forced to lose or forfeit in the first round of the rental battles just because you got an unfortunate team with bad movesets or being too heavy on weaknesses to a certain type. It's the main reason why I lose in the first round a lot and if I do manage to beat the foe, let alone win the whole tournament, it's because the luck leaned on my side. Also, when the opponent uses Trick Room when your team has only fast Pokemon or if they pull off Tailwind successfully, prepare to get pummeled.

    And some of the PWT rental Pokemon have sucky movesets it's insane, like that one Simisage that lacks any Grass attacks.

    I don't get how that's even possible at all, unless the legendary is hacked. Most of them you don't even run into until they're over level 50

    I'm pretty sure most of the "Level 9 and under [legendary or Pokémon which cannot legally be at a low level]" trades on the GTS are just showing off, since a majority that I've seen have been shinies and Pokémon such as Dream Radar Landorus, Mystri Stage Giratina etc.

    Are you familiar with the Magnemite Coil? It's an exchange on GTS to allow more people to appear in your join avenue. Because you can get Magnemites right around when GTS opens in BW2, Japanese players early on established a way to trade magnemites for magnemites as fast as possible so that tons of people will show up in join avenue. That's probably why the trades were going off, that person will likely trade away that magneton shortly.

    Actually, they seem to be using it for some kind of storage... or for cloning Pokemon.

    How slow D/P/Pt are. My main gripe is that even with the battle animations turned off, moves like Fury Swipes and Doubleslap take forever to finish. God forbid if it goes on for five whole turns. Uggghhhh.

    And Genwunners of course. Anyone who acts like that annoys me.

    And though it's been said over and over again, the enormous multitude of people on the GTS offering a Paras for a lv9 and under Kyurem.

    Recently in filming in Pokestars when the scence calls for your pokemon to lose cause it's in the script and even though I have my pokemon use the weakest moves I still end up KOing the other actors/trainers pokemon.

    GTS eople I'm not trading under level lengends that don't exist!

    Yup. Then someone will probably even want a alevel 50 or 100 starter/shiny legendary in the first hour after they battle the first gym and get the C-gear.
    Yeesh the people on GTS wanted level 9 legendary pokemon.... jeez wait a little and get it about level 50 or 80!

    I walking somewhere in Unova and in the first step....... A WILD POKEMON APPEARED! GOD I DON'T WANNA CATCH IT LET ME GO!!
    Then you can;t escape. Also going into a trainer battle then walking off then come back and run away or throw a pokeball at it thinking it was actually a wild pokemon. Happens to me alot.

    Well trying to find a shiny pokemon and turns out it uses Explosion,self destruct,roar,dragon tail or teleport. Or finding a rare pokemon and that happens.
    Taking so long to find a shiny pokemon.
    Having like 10,000 Random Encounter and still not finding a shiny pokemon and you find out that someone found more shiny pokemon in about 500 or 5,000.

    People on this forum who post in the wrong trading forum.

    Like in the 4th gen section, people are looking for/offering Dream World Pokemon and 5th gen Pokemon in some threads. Then sometimes I PM the person and say (this is for 4th gen) "Hey I got the Pokemon you need. Ready to trade?" Then the other person says "Here's my Black 2 FC xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

    Stop it!

    Getting confused/opponent confused
    I have the worst luck when it comes to confusion.
    PWT rental tournament! I have to defeat his last pokemon...I have 2 left! Swanna, Hurricane! It has Red HP bar! Confused! Oh, great...
    3 turns later I lost D:
    It seems like a good idea at first. 5 seconds later you realize you just wasted a turn.

    Wild Pokemon using Protect/Detect or Roar/Whirlwind. Just...why? All they do is be an annoyance for the player since they either prolong the battle and waste PP or cut the battle short and waste PP.

    I wouldn't call that a wasted turn. A Hurricane coming from a Swanna is still pretty powerful without the confusion. It is an attack with 180 base power with STAB, after all.

    When your in a Double Battle with the Rival (Barry, Hugh, Cheren) and they do better than you. In my recent W2 run we battled Zin...whatever and the Plasama Grunt and for whatever racist reason they would not attack his Samurott, granted I was the stronger opponent but still all their Pokemon kept attacking my poor Emboar

    When you're in a cave or forest or area and shepherding/escorting another trainer, you find a shiny, and they KO it before you can catch it. I HATE having in-game tagalongs for that reason and try to ditch them as quickly as possible.
