    Hypnosis, hypnosis, and more freaking hypnosis, usually followed by confuse ray in the Black Tower/White Treehollow. I hate that.

    Anything that uses Detect six times in a row.

    Pokemon that hit you twice before you can hit them even though you're FASTER than they are and they're not using a speed-enhanced move.

    Zubat.

    Paralysis when used on me. 'Cuz my Pokemon can't move 70% of the time and a paralyzed wild Pokemon is only paralyzed 30% of the time. And never when you most need it to be.

    Supersonic when used by the computer. That move has a 55% accuracy rating.

    But when the computer uses it it seems to be closer to 90 %

    that and cute pokemon that don't evolve past the cuteness. I just do not like cuddly looking pokemon.

    After a random battle is over and it goes to the blue screen asking you to continue, you turn off the power and they count it as a rage quit -__-

    Focus Sash +Counter/Mirror Coat. Most Pokemon don't even need this tactic

    Genwunners and Double Team. That move is banned from competitive play for a reason, it's just so freaking cheap. And don't even get me started on Genwunners.

    THIIIIISSSS

    I can't with "originaly 150 were the best!!!!11" like no Gen1 had friggen grimer are you kidding me. Nostalgia freaks give us older fans a bad name. Especially because R/B/Y was really glitchy and honestly boring compared to today's games.

    Anyway.

    Triple battles annoy the hell out of me. Both the all at once and the kind that rotate each pokemon. Double battles were cool, but wth is up with triple battles. Just. No.

    Be careful about bringing 'gen wars' into this. If a Mod thinks this thread is turning into one of those, it'll be closed faster than you can say 'blue streak'.


    Anyway, here's the most controversial thing that grinds my gears. And fear not. I fully expect to be bashed for this.

    Competitive battling really annoys me, because it tends to be a very elitist sport. What I mean by that is they tend to get their panties in a bundle if you're not playing the game the way THEY want you to play it. Also, if you criticize competitive battling, they tend to act like they know better than you, or just act like they're better than you in general.

    I really hate it when you encounter wild Pokémon your team is at a disadvantage with and you could not run away from a battle.

    The thing that grinds my gears the most is when the opponent's Pokémon like Lillipup starts using Work Up repeatedly and knocks you out when they are a little bit weaker than you. I remember that this caused me so much raging hate when the first time I challenged Aspertia Gym in Black 2. It took me like 20 tries because of this.

    Another thing that grinds my gears is when the opponent turns off the game during the middle of a Wi-Fi battle whenever you are in the lead. I've got to admit that I'm guilty of doing it in the past back during the 4th Generation, but I learned how annoying it is when you are on the receiving end. Just complete unsportsmanlike conduct in my books.

    there's no Battle Frontier?!

    Multi-scale Dragonites. A good ice beam from an EV Trained Starmie w/ choice Specs and nearly flawless IV's in Sp. Attack can't take it down.

    Also Latios. An ice beam usually doesn't take it down.

    I'm completely with you on the Wi-Fi battle thing. I really hope they do impose a penalty for doing that in X and Y, because that is so annoying, even when you're just a casual player.

    Nintendo, if you're listening, PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!

    Minimize. A Clefable took down all but one member of my team by spamming this, Sing, and Metronome. Hate evasion.

    Something that's recently been bothering me:
    The many people saying that Ghetsis' Hydreigon was a "hack because it's level 54, but Hydreigon evolves at level 64!" Okay, what exactly are you trying to say? Would you much rather of had his Hydreigon be level 64 rather than 54? I personally don't see a reason to whine about the lower level. Besides, it's not like this was the first time in Poké-history that someone used a fully evolved poke that shouldn't of been fully evolved.

    The fact you get each Gym Leader's number in your pokenav in Ruby and Sapphire, and you'll never be able to rematch them reallllllyyyy made me mad.

    Me having a WPA2 router (I have a ds lite), and not having the ability to do special events and access the GTS (can't mesuda method :c)

    I've personally never understood why Snubbull had a higher female ratio

    Pokeradar chains randomly breaking out of nowhere really bugs me aswell.

    That there isn't an "Organisation Boss" tournament in the PWT! I'd love to see Maxie, Cyrus, Ghetsis, Archie - Heck even Giovanni and maybe just the Admins like Tabitha for some fun. It would make a great tournaments imo!

    the one thing that gets me more than anything else is that my router doesn't work with my ds/ds games, but it does work with my 3ds, wii and wii u. it gets me so annoyed.

    Always watching. Always waiting. Never truly at peace in a realm of its own.
    Giratina will return....someday.
